Late Leo, Plus Sun Virgo and Mars Conjunct Saturn

The Sun ingresses Virgo Saturday at 12:46 am EDT. Close on its heels, on Monday we get the combined aspects of the Virgo New Moon (10:13 am) and Mars conjunct Saturn (3:30 pm).

I will repeat what I've been saying about Mars-Saturn in a diversity of places—"Do not let any matter that might be a confrontation come to blows. The best martial artist knows how to avoid a fight, or only take it as far as nobody getting hurt. A martial artist knows how to work with the flow of energy and not against it."

This is indeed martial astrology. But being in Scorpio, there is a sexual attribute to this setup. This has been building for a while, focused by Saturn in Scorpio. There are of course many manifestations of this, but you can think of it as an iceberg lurking just below the level of the emotional waters. It's the thing you run into when you want to express yourself sexually. It's the hidden obstacle, the temporarily out-of-sight issue.

There are many ways to keep concealing this, to keep pretending, to avoid the whole issue, though they are all short-term and not solutions. Mars about to make a conjunction to Saturn is a direct encounter, where desire meets resistance. They range from clinging to relationships that don't work (especially when you know they won't work); to the thing you have not talked about that keeps coming up for you (for example, something that happened in the past, being triggered by your current situation); to unacknowledged fear that is running your life from behind the scenes.

Ask yourself how well it works to live from control drama to control drama. Question whether jealousy gets you anything at all, except anguish and exhaustion. Better still, question the origins of jealousy.

Pay attention as the Sun moves through these last degrees of Leo; plenty is revealed in the last degrees when the Sun moves through a sign. Notice what comes up as the Sun ingresses Virgo, which indicates the advent of a whole new energy field. Then keep your focus as the Moon closes in on the Sun and Mars closes in on Saturn. Do yourself a favor and tell yourself the truth. Ask how long you want to live in denial, in particular based on how well (or not so well) it's gone in the past.
