Mars Joins Saturn & Mercury Opposes Pluto – Let’s Rumble

If you are like me, you’ve been wondering what is going on with the planets since the mood of everyone seems to be at a fever pitch and everyone is having trouble getting their balance, along with several countries. The effects of this conjunction will last for the next week so when I share the information about this aspect, I mean it will go on for a few days, even though the planets came together exactly this afternoon.

Today confrontational Mars joined stern Saturn in the critical, analytical, and detailed sign of Virgo. Since Virgo is an earth sign, it may effect material goods, health, and financial circumstances. It often effects banks and our accounting. Don’t overdue your workout routine this week.

You may find a confrontational situation over documents or a conversation may bring the end of a cycle in a relationship. It may also bring an end to a relationship, but, depending on your chart, it’s possible to use it constructively.

People born under the sign of Virgo are known for being good at details, although somewhat critical at times. Virgo can rule writing and documents and there may be arguments over something that has been said or written.

Automobiles and computers may also be affected since they are complex and their workings are quite detailed. Since Mercury in Gemini, where it is comfortable and represents communication and travel, takes the power of the energy from these two difficult planets back to itself, and Mercury is opposing Pluto, when these two planets come together,there may be a final end to a situation with a group or family relationship. It may be due to documents or communication of some sort, but the devil is in the details, as they say, and Virgo (the sign where Mars and Saturn come together) is definitely about details. The greater wisdom would be to stay out of arguments if you can and tell anyone who wants to discuss a serious matter that it would work better next week. That will give you a little time to let the intensity die down, although the upcoming Solar Eclipse may also present some challenges.

Note: Read the comments below for more information on countries ruled by the sign of Virgo.  This paragraph has been altered due to an astute observation by a blog visitor.  I had mistakenly identified Germany as a country under the mundane rulership of Virgo and, in fact, it is ruled by Aries.  Read the comments for more on this.

You may find that countries, identified in the comments below, that are ruled by Virgo may see some significant activity. It is also possible that there will be an earthquake or volcano eruption for the next few days while the effect of this conjunction is being felt.  Charlie Sheen, Virginia Madsen, Tommy Lee Jones, Rachel Ward, Sophia Loren, and Hugh Grant are all Virgos.
