The Curious Case of Ms C (continued) & Her Fiery Mars

VenusLeoThings are heating up between Ms C and the certain Mr A (the subject of the prior post) and from what I’ve heard, she probably thinks that she’s winning in regards to her ‘man-eater’ role.

Let’s see what several predictive astrological techniques (birth time unknown, noon chart used) have to say:

Summary – If Ms C is to achieve her objectives during 2016-17, she needs to keep a cool head –learn to negotiate nicely, compromise, suggest win-win strategies. But this is going to be difficult, not the least because at the moment, she’s more prone that usual to be ‘hot-heated’ in order to express her ego desires. Ms C is being called upon to act responsibly during this period and if she’s unable to do so, she’s likely to find herself displaced and lonely; changes in job, home, and/or emotional relationships are indicated.

Firdaria

Firdaria is a classical technique rather like the Dash periods in Hindu astrology. It assigns periods of our lives to various planets in keeping with the Chaldean order of the planets.

Ms CMs C is currently in her Saturn/Mars Firdaria and in her natal chart, her Saturn (28 Gemini 12) is in reasonably good shape – in its own terms, and not damaged. According to the Liber Hermetis, ‘this person is conscious of hidden matters or secrets’ and ‘will work toward their own success, be self-motivated, and be happy.’

So far, so good.

All this success and self-motivation is funneled through her Mars at 16 Aries which, in its sign of ruler ship, is amazingly strong. According to the Liber Hermetis, she not only will she be ‘skilled’ and ‘daring’, but she will ‘complete quickly’ what she undertakes. But because her Mars is in the terms of Mercury, she will be ‘hot-headed’ and her ‘reason is clouded’.

Solar Return (2016-17)

Sun

The SR (Solar Return) Sun is the most important planet in the SR chart and shows where Ms C will expend most of her energy during the upcoming year. With SR Sun in a tight square aspect to Mars, Ms C will not only need to balance self-centered ego drives with the needs of others, but also deal with much conflict and anger. If she’s able to do this, she might achieve the objectives as suggested by her Saturn/Mars Firdaria. If she’s not, however, she might find herself squashed between a rock and a hard place.ms C solar return

Her SR Sun is also in tight square aspect to SR Uranus, the planet of ‘all change’. This suggests that while she desires significant change in her life, most likely she won’t get it – or at least not in the way that she wants it. With such an aspect, issues involving freedom vs. restriction are common.

Moon

The SR Moon indicates the emotional focus of Ms C for the upcoming year, and with SR Moon conjunct SR Saturn, suggests significant emotional strain most likely in regards to those restrictions. Ms C is being called upon to act responsibly during this time but this may not always be easy not the least because she may be feeling very lonely, unable to rely on the help of others.

Her SR Moon is also square SR Uranus and this suggests (domestic) disruption. At the very least she can expect a significant break in her daily routine and habits and at worst, a period of separation, if not a complete break, from those with whom she shares strong emotional bonds.

With her SR Moon also square the current Jupiter/Neptune opposition, she might expect to face blockage in the realization of her fondest hopes and dreams – and indeed it is quite possible this will so greatly her emotional balance, that she will need to reassess her approach.

Venus

Because Ms C’s SR Venus is conjunct SR Mercury, she has an excellent opportunity to develop and/or perfect excellent negotiation skills – to develop a soft and winning style not only to express her needs but also getting what she wants. If she can learn the fine art of compromise, she can create win/win situations and this would go far to achieving her goals (SR Venus trine SR Saturn).

The Troubles of a Certain Mr A & the Predictive Technique of Firdaria

In conjunction with other classical predictive techniques, the Firdaria is brilliant. Rather like the Dasha periods in Hindu astrology, the Firdaria assigns periods of our lives to various different planets in keeping with the Chaldean order of the planets as follows:

Unknown

Continuing on with the case study of ‘a certain Mr A’  (28 June post), we learn that his current ‘daunting difficulties’ started to really manifest in 2010-2012 when he entered in his Saturn/Venus Firdaria:

  • SATURN :
    • Saturn/Jupiter – September 28, 2005
    • Saturn/Mars – April 25, 2007
    • Saturn/Sun – November 19, 2008
    • Saturn/Venus – June 16, 2010
    • Saturn/Mercury – January 11, 2012
    • Saturn/Moon – August 7, 2013
  • JUPITER :
    • Jupiter/Mars – November 19, 2016
    • Jupiter/Sun – August 7, 2018
    • Jupiter/Venus – April 24, 2020
    • Jupiter/Mercury – January 10, 2022
    • Jupiter/Moon – September 28, 2023
    • Jupiter/Saturn – June 15, 2025

Mr ASaturn is always ambitious, striving to bring achievement and success into our lives through hard work. Mr A’s Saturn is highly successful in this regard – being in its sign of rulership, Aquarius (and also in its own terms). Indeed when Mr A entered his Saturn Firdaria in 2004, I can only imagine that he really began to enjoy the fruits of his labours.

In the Saturn/Venus Firdaria, Saturn’s ambitions are funnelled through Venus, whose job is to provide money and/or relationships and self-worth. Because Venus (26 Aries) is in the terms of Saturn, she willingly provides all the help that she can to Saturn – but unfortunately because she is in detriment (or damaged), it should come as no surprise that she provides Mr A with a fiery (Aries) and damaging (Venus in Aries) relationship in connection with the place where he does all his hard work. I can only imagine how at this time, such a relationship fanned the fires of his own feelings of self-worth. I can also imagine that it might even have added to his status at work.

However in late 2016-2017, Mr A will experience his Jupiter/Mars Firdaria.

According to the Liber Hermetis, Jupiter in Aries (in sect and in good condition) suggests a ‘powerful leader’, a ‘victor in battle’, and a ‘trusted councillor’. This not only sounds fantastic but also worth all the hard work. However when we remember that all this bounty is to be funnelled through his Mars in Pisces (which in the earlier post we found suggestive of ‘working as a slave’, having ‘little regard for danger’, and throwing himself into ‘violent situations’ where he ‘looses his mind’ with the ‘excitement of it all’), we are not so optimistic.

When we further discover that his Mars in Pisces is in the terms of Venus in his natal chart, we have reason to fear that the fiery relationship forged during 2010-2012 will now come back to haunt him. This serious potential for disaster during this period is further highlighted by Jupiter (21 Aries) being in the terms of Mars.

Mr A would be well-advised to take action now to put damage control measures into place. Further, he should keep a watchful eye on avoiding ‘violent situations’ during which he might ‘lose his mind’ with the ‘excitement of it all’. If he fails to do so, then (as Robert Zoller suggests) that Venus in detriment ‘might have at first seemed to fulfil its promise’ but ‘then it will destroy what it has given’ (and more).
