    Mars-Uranus conjunction map


    Although not an exceptionally rare event since Mars-Uranus conjoin approximately every two years or so this conjunction is particular for the fact that the two planets conjoin at 26°19 Taurus (antiscion 03° 41′ Leo) on the Fixed Star Algol.

    Those with natal planets or angles between 23-30° of the Fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be involved in this conjunction.

    Mars: passion, anger, energy and wilfulness etc – all a little tarnished by the planet having minor dignity only by face and also being in its detriment in Taurus thus more likely to act mischievously if not badly rather than in a focussed manner.

    Uranus: unpredictable, eccentric, sudden, restless, impatient etc doesn’t sit well in a patient, calm stubborn sign like Taurus.

    Together, Mars and Uranus often cause upsets and accidents as each wants freedom to do his own thing.

    Algol as V. Robson writes is “the most evil star in the heavens” and in ancient times was usually used for someone who literally lost his head (decapitated). In more modern times we usually associate it with someone who loses his head in the sense that they are no longer able to cope with the task given.

    This conjunction is also interesting because it connects with the charts both of Mr. B and Mr. T as well as having the Mars-Uranus conjunction exactly on the MC of the line which runs through a part of North America (see Solar map). Not surprisingly that these are the two men and the country most in the news of present times.

    For Mr. B the Mars-Uranus conjunction is exactly opposite his natal Scorpio Sun which is in a 12th house stellium together with Mercury and Venus, the conjunction is also sextile to his natal Jupiter. Together these planets involve, either by rulership or exaltation, the entirety of his natal chart. Furthermore, the conjunction is square to his Solar Arc Ascendant at 26° Aquarius and conjoined to his Sun-Mars conjunction in 4th house Scorpio of his current 2023-2024 Solar Return. I think this will be a very decisive period for his immediate future.

    For Mr. T the Mars-Uranus conjunction is square to his natal 12th Mars which rules his 9th and 4th houses and is exalted in his 5th where Capricorn is intercepted, Uranus is in his 10th natal house conjunct NN and Sun and rules his 7th house, Sun rules his 1st and is exalted in his 9th, NN is ruled by Mercury in his 12th, ruling his 11th and 2nd houses. Maybe the courts (9th house) will finally put an end (4th house) to the trial regarding his love affairs (5th house) after another hefty payment award (2nd house). This year Mr. T is in a 7th house profection year which in his case is ruled by his 7th house ruler Saturn, natal Saturn is in his 11th house. Saturn is essentially weak being in detriment in Cancer but accidentally fortified by being in the 11th house. Saturn is conjunct Venus (peregrine) ruler of his MC and his 2nd house of finances, time to make (another) mark or to go under due to enormous debts?

    As you can see from the illustrated map, the Mars-Uranus conjunction runs through the central-Eastern part of the USA where tornadoes and extreme heat are already causing havoc.

    The Sabian symbol for 27° Taurus: “An old Indian woman selling the artifacts of her tribe to passers-by.” Indicating peaceful adaptation to collective needs.

    For the antiscion at 4° Leo: “A formally dressed elderly man stands near trophies he brought back from a hunting expedition.” Indicating the masculine will to conquer his animal nature and to impress his peers with his skill in performing the ancient traditional power rituals.

    Just some food for thought, comments of an astrological nature are more than welcome those of a political one not so and as such will be deleted. Thank you for taking the time to read.
