Mars in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn (13 deg)
Chiron in Pisces trine Ceres in Scorpio (28 deg)
Mars/Saturn is blocked actions. There is nothing easy about this one - you’ll want to push forward immediately (Aries) but a rule, limit or authority (Saturn) will challenge you. You may experience this as coming to a full stop, or being pressured to work harder when your energy is limited. But the square also means there’s a corner to turn - it’s an active aspect so you’re not meant to sit there and do nothing.
However, you can’t charge ahead or openly express your anger/passion. You’ll have to show restraint, obey a higher law and dig in to do the work that’s demanded. Saturn always means there’s more work, so consider what your duty is. Where do you have to focus? When Mars in Aries is controlled, the output can be incredibly effective. Strength increases as you encounter resistance - you build fortitude and muscle. But you’ll have to slow down and be patient.
True courage (Aries) will consist of moving forward (with control) in the face of obstacles.
Chiron trine Ceres brings a smooth, deep flow of assistance. Ceres in Scorpio is profound nurturing - nurturing through pain, loss and the darkest moments under the shadow of death (the knowledge that nothing remains forever). Trine Chiron, we have the unconditional acceptance that nurturing often accompanies pain. It can hurt to care for someone. Or, caring for yourself requires total acceptance (and forgiveness of) your wounds.
The blend of pain, healing and nurturing flows together seamlessly, so this awareness might help you deal with the obstructions of Mars/Saturn, which can feel like punishment. Whether you’re encountering physical limits, excess work or a struggle with authority, know that there’s healing available if you open yourself up to it.
