Mars square Saturn triggered August 25 2011

Mars square Saturn triggered August 25 2011

Mars forms a right angle (270°, an aspect Dane Rudhyar referred to as a “crisis in consciousness”) to Saturn in Libra at 6:46 AM Eastern Time, August 25, 2011. Just over two hours later the Moon triggers the aspect at 9:04 AM Eastern. The trigger happens when the Moon comes exactly to Mars at 14° 34’ of the Sign Cancer.

Saturn represents the old and established way of things while Mars is about the youthful exuberance of action; unmovable object meets irresistible force. Something’s gotta give!

While I am certain there will be events smack within those time constraints, there is also plenty of response on both the before and after of the astrological event.  I’ve already noted Mars’ hard aspects to Uranus and Pluto that excite the connection to the great sociopolitical processes at work there, those aspects August 9 and 10, 2011 (See Mars OOB article http://astrology-startalk.blogspot.com/2011/08/mars-out-of-bounds.html). Those occurred with Mars out of bounds and the quality of events about the aspect were indeed extreme. I’d include the July 22 bombing and massacre in Oslo with Mars’ triggering of the Uranus/Pluto 90° square (Rudhyar, “crisis in action”). That was also the same day Mars went out of bounds. A brief look at events from the beginning to mid-August will show many Mars-inspired events.

    OK, I was reminded of this when looking at a chart clock today and chatting a bit about astrology. I had an “Oh, my look at that, Mars square Saturn and a Moon/Mars to trigger it!”  There is plenty of stress leading up to the event and there will be plenty to represent the mirroring, as above, so below that is astrology but I haven’t time at this juncture in time to write more. Let’s see what transpires and why not list the events you see that match this stress right here!
