Mars in Scorpio square Jupiter in Leo has been building since the New Moon in Leo (which was the kick off). The square will be exact on August 1st at 3 degrees, and Mercury will add an exclamation point by conjuncting Jupiter (and squaring Mars) from August 1st to 2nd.
Mars (action) square Jupiter (expansion) is enthusiastic. Mars in Scorpio square Jupiter in Leo can be enthusiastically vengeful, or driven to grab the Big Thing. Mercury's conjunction to Jupiter(at 3 degrees) and square to Mars (at 4 degrees) will stretch this aspect out to August 2nd, through words/conversations/ideas/writing. Communication will be over the top, and ideas will be clamouring for release.
This is the demand cloaked in entitlement, with a dark undertone of "or else." Or, the brilliant opportunity to make a statement, fuelled by passion. Words will have a massive impact, so think carefully before you let loose. Or, before you respond.
Things to consider:
- What's the unspoken message?
- What's driving your ideas?
Scorpio's Shadow will be directed through Mercury. It's crucial that you tune into what's really being said, as opposed to the shiny, outer promise (Jupiter/Mercury). The deeper actions that drive this energy don't have to be destructive, if they're channeled in the right way. That means passion, not vengeance. Focus, not fury. Transformation, not destruction. There's an entire underworld that can be verbalized, and that means power. Will it be your dark, slippery hostility that leaks out, or a deeper well of intensity that attracts the right people? Because Mars in Scorpio is strategic, even when he's jollied up by Jupiter. Mars in Scorpio only targets a specific group or person. You can draw them in or scare them off.
If you want attention, it's yours. Just consider what you'll be getting attention with.
If you have natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes from 0-6 degrees of the Fixed signs, you'll feel this influence.
