On July 3, 2021, transiting Mars in Leo will square transiting Uranus in Taurus. This is likely to be a tense ride where the desire to move forward is met with an element of rebelliousness and chaos. Also, given that the zodiac signs involved…fiery Leo and earthy Taurus are both fixed in nature, it appears that this tense aspect is met with even more resistance from both sides where ego and stubbornness create very uncomfortable energy that leads to neither side wanting to back down due to the fixed nature of the entire aspect. When uncontrolled, Mars square Uranus…especially with the fixed planetary influence, could lead to determined energies colliding because neither wants to make way for the other. Continue to read on to find out how to navigate this explosive energy in the most efficient way possible.
Mars in Leo Square Uranus in Taurus Energy
The general energy of Mars square Uranus is boom! Think of obstacles that are usually manifested as accidents. Let’s consider the energies of Mars and Uranus to better understand how this energy can show up. Mars is the planet that governs our will, action, and sexual drive. Mars represents desires, and the sign and house placement of our personal Mars shows how we approach getting that which we desire. How people get what they want and why they choose certain actions to do so varies, and it is shown through Mars. Mars executed negatively results in rashness, impulsivity, immaturity, aggression, violence.Read More »
Let’s add the energy of Leo and Taurus. Both of these zodiac signs are fixed in nature which means that there is little wiggle room for compromise. They are also in different elements. Leo is fiery and oriented towards passionate action whereas Taurus is earthy and oriented towards controlled, steady movement. Since both of these zodiac signs are fixed, there is a desire to have things their way. With Mars in Leo, actions can be oriented towards creation, purpose, and ambition that is often tied to the ego. Because of this, the achievement is often connected with pride. With Uranus in Taurus, the energies are not necessarily comfortable here as Taurus is a stable, concrete energy that seeks sameness while Uranus insists on progression and change. With Uranus transiting the sign of Taurus, there is a progressive push for change in existing structures, values, and ways of being that goes beyond what is traditional. Taurus, being the stubborn bull that it is, will dig in its hooves desperate to keep things the same. However, whenever Uranus aspects and/or transits a planet it’s because change is long overdue and a much-needed shift is necessary.
So, Mars in Leo wants to move forward confidently in the manner it desires to fulfill its desires, but Uranus in Taurus is dealing with implementing changes to its very foundation that it is not necessarily thrilled about. A fixed moveable fiery energy (Mars in Leo) meets fixed chaotic energy (Uranus in Taurus) under difficult circumstances due to the square aspect. This is a powerful energy that if not checked can result in unexpected actions such as accidents, explosions, and random acts of violence.
Facing Inner & Outer Tensions
Inner tensions are a definitive feature of the Mars square Uranus that when not resolved could lead to unexpected outcomes. It is as if our motivations as represented by Mars are met with out of the blue encounters of a unique kind. There are both internal and external clashes that occur due to the Mars square Taurus energies.
Internally, we struggle with wanting to act or move in a particular direction but being met with discord that we have not resolved…very similar to the entire experience of Uranus transiting Taurus. Mars in Leo is sure about its path forward, but Uranus in Taurus energy can make us feel like something is amiss to the point of needing something totally different than our original Mars in Leo desires. When we are not able to reconcile our desires with our desires to live on our own terms, internally we can struggle how to act even though we may think we are sure what we want…especially with the influence of Leo on Mars. Also, since the ego is connected to motivations, we could feel deflated and a sense of humiliation if our actions are thwarted by our own internal tensions…so much so that even if we know it would be best not to act (Mars) we will stay the fixed path out of ego and pride. This wouldn’t be so much of an issue if it weren’t for Mars’ tense aspect with Uranus. The energies present a situation where our ego needs to move forward could result in us making some poor actions that meet unexpected ends due to our pride.
Externally, this is the energy of accidents. Mars in Leo moves forward and meets the unexpected fixed energy of Uranus in Taurus. Two fixed energies going KABOOM! Leo will keep moving because they believe that they have the right of way, and they won’t let anything get in their way. Uranus in Taurus is the immovable structure that gets hit by lighting thereby breaking it down for something more progressive. It’s like a car driving straight into an unexpected landslide. Think of the chaos! If only someone would have stopped. Alas, Leo’s pride won’t allow it to stop, and Taurus wouldn’t budge either due to its stubbornness. So, BOOM!
Please beware of the external expression of this energy as it can show up as accidents that could cause harm to structures due to the unexpected influence of Uranus in the earth sign of Taurus. Let’s not let our egos and pride (Mars in Leo) as well as our stubbornness (Uranus in Taurus) get the best of us and cause chaos.
Channeling Mars Square Uranus Energy Effectively
The energy that occurs externally is a reflection of what we are dealing with internally. The Mars in Leo square Uranus in Taurus energies beckon us to consider our inner frustrations and tensions that are asking to be acknowledged so that we can achieve the liberation and freedom as expressed through Uranus in Taurus. This tension could be used to support our Mars in Leo ambitions…if we allow it. First, we have to embrace what is offered through Uranus in Taurus. How can we move forward (Mars) if we are fighting what will liberate us (Uranus in Taurus)? It is very likely that we will have to take action (Mars) that involves risks (Uranus) to release the tension that we feel inside and to reduce the chances of experiencing the unexpected outside of us all because we were too stubborn (Taurus) and prideful (Leo) to take the actions (Mars) to implement the liberating energy of Uranus
