Mars in Aquarius - May 4th to June 18th
Mars has been transiting Capricorn since March 22nd, where it promotes the use of police, military, and martial law. This influence has been affecting countries all over the world. Most countries have clamped down in some way, imposing some sort of governmental, and, in come cases, military rule to get people to stay at home. So when Mars goes out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, on May 4th, we can expect some of that to ease up.
It is interesting to note that recently, many of the US states are now beginning to slowly relax their restrictions. The dates on which these states are beginning to reopen range from the end of April to mid-May. This all lines up generally with the movement of Mars out of Capricorn and into Aquarius on May 4th. The governor of Florida, on the other hand, gets the prize for being the most astrologically correct, because Florida's opening date is exactly May 4th.
It's one thing to ease restrictions, but as most people know, that doesn't mean the pandemic is over. Covid 19 is still a force to reckoned with and we will just have to experiment a little at first to see if we can mange to keep the infection rates down. That said, Jupiter is still in Capricorn until June 29th, so we can watch the period around that time for the possibility of another easing of rules.
With Mars in Aquarius, normally people like freedom. That make sense, since the period when Mars was in Capricorn has made us all live a more restrictive condition. In the individual chart, a person with Mars in Aquarius is fiercely independent. He or she wants to do their own thing in their own way and doesn't want anyone to tell them what to do. Aquarius is the sign of freedom and democracy, so when Mars, the planet of assertive action and desire, moves into this sign, people want to break out of their sense of restriction.
One form this could take is that some people might become overconfident, allowing their restless desire to break out of their shackles to make them forget that the virus is still out there and still highly contagious. So if your state opens up soon, my suggestion is that you still take a cautious approach to interacting in public places.
I gave a description of the Coronavirus in the webinar called What's Going On up There? (link below) I also gave a timeline, based on the chart of the new year telling when we might find a vaccine, when the virus might morph or downshift, and when we might get passed the whole messy experience. But the bottom line is that it is a highly contagious virus, it's not over yet, and it's not going away soon. My approach to astrology is what I call a No Fear approach. My approach to the virus is the same. Don't be afraid. But also don't be overconfident and take unnecessary risks. Do what the medical professionals all over the country recommend, and then relax, and try to enjoy your life as it presents itself.
