Mars in Pisces – Connect with your Creative Muse
This week Mars in Pisces activates the emotional and sensitive sign of Pisces for the next 6 weeks.
The emphasis is on having the courage to dive deep and feel all your emotions, especially as it will join Neptune next week on 20th, the planet that rules Pisces.
Then at the end of the month Mars joins Chiron the Wounded Healer.
Pisces is the sign of the Artist, the Photographer, the Musician, the Healer, the Muse.
However this week Mars will have its strength tested as it forms a challenging square (90 degree) aspect with Saturn that becomes exact on Thursday January 15th.
In astrology when an aspect is applying it’s strong, so this week push through your resistance to starting any task.
As mentioned in my YouTube video above, I recommend the book ‘The War of Art’ by Steven Pressfield as the perfect book to read to encourage you. The chapters are short and pithy.
Neptune and Pisces are connected to the 12th house in our birth charts- the womb. Each and every one of us has the energy of creativity inside of us- a child or a project that we were born to give birth to.
Mars in Pisces can act as a spiritual midwife that says, take action now and call on your angels to breathe spirit and nurture this embryo. Help it have an easy birth.
This ‘birth’ energy will be strong when Mars moves into its home sign of Aries on 20th February and joins Venus on 22nd February.
Meanwhile start the process-birth doesn’t happen without labour!
Steven Pressfield writes:-
“Are you a born writer? Were you put on earth to be a painter, a scientist, an apostle of peace? In the end the question can only be answered by action.
Do it or don’t do it.
It may help to think of it this way. If you were meant to cure cancer or write a symphony or crack cold fusion and you don’t do it, you not only hurt yourself, even destroy yourself, you hurt your children. You hurt me. You hurt the planet.
You shame the angels who watch over you and you spite the Almighty, who created you and only you with your unique gifts, for the sole purpose of nudging the human race one millimetre farther along its path back to God.
Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It’s a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.”
― Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles
“Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do.
Remember our rule of thumb: The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.
Resistance is experienced as fear; the degree of fear equates to the strength of Resistance. Therefore the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul. That’s why we feel so much Resistance. If it meant nothing to us, there’d be no Resistance.”
And if that doesn’t spur you on . . .
“The most pernicious aspect of procrastination is that it can become a habit. We don’t just put off our lives today; we put them off till our deathbed.
Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. This second we can turn the tables on Resistance.
This second, we can sit down and do our work.”
As an astrologer I specialise in healing people’s Timelines.
In my work I gently urge clients to show up, to shine. To push through their resistance and fear and to heal their birth story.
We all have ‘blips’, times of trauma in our lives.
Vedic Astrology gives me an advantage because I can identify those blips in your Timeline for you- they usually occurr in childhood.
Healing is vitally important- watch my video and see the karmic pattern the planets are making in the heavens for the next few months.
The world needs healing and it starts with each of us as individuals. It’s time for releasing our grievances and reclaiming our soul gifts. With Mars in Pisces acting with compassion as the Spiritual Warrior, this month is an excellent time to do just that.
A present crisis sets off the past traumas. if you are having a tough time, then, hand on my heart, I can help you.
