We are leaving 2014, year ruled by Jupiter, when we tried to expand our horizons through acquiring direct or indirect knowledge in order to explore higher levels of faith, truth and justice, both on a personal and collective levels. Even though this process might have created conflicts, frustrations and disappointments, Jupiter is considered a benefic planet and may present some lack of commitment that can lead to a certain resignation and complacency. Things change as we enter 2015, year ruled by Mars, the God of Wars. It is likely that we will see an increase of aggressiveness, violence, attacks, explosions and fires. We will be motivated by anger (which must be kept under control as not to get out of proportion) and inclined to take action. Beware of explosive behavior in yourself and others, including strangers. Try not to engage in unnecessary arguments and conflicts for there will be a tendency of fighting just for the sake of it as an attempt to reaffirm self-assurance. It is advisable to recycle the emotions in a positive manner and find ways to handle anger and belligerent feelings before they have a chance to manifest as aggression, and to keep the productivity high and do physical exercises in order to channel any excessive energy. Sports, martial arts, sex on its physical expression, force, taking action, resilience, virility and vitality are Martian themes that can be explored constructively.
In 2015 we will have the chance to learn how to deal with the animalistic and territorial Martian energy, which is the fruit of instinctual impulses that lead to a mistaken perception of a need for protection, which in turn engenders a reaction in the violence spectrum that is doubly mistaken. It is time to tame the lion within each of us, which is also projected on the collective level in our geopolitical relations.
