Mars On Scorpio 4: A Youngster Holding A Lighted Candle
Mars is on Scorpio 4: A YOUTH HOLDING A LIGHTED CANDLE IN A DEVOTIONAL RITUAL GAINS A SENSE OF THE GREAT ‘OTHER WORLD’
Mars and Jupiter are now squaring each other and the anger around the wars and inequities that are going on on the planet are bound to ramp up. People’s ideas, hopes, dreams, ambitions, passions, anger, the whole she-bang is up for grabs… a lot of ‘stuff’ is likely to spew forth at the moment. Yesterday, Mars was on Scorpio 3: Neighbours Coming Together In A House Raising Party – well, it was no party. And it was meant to be ‘House Raising’ – not ‘House Razing’.
Jupiter is on the ‘Hunting Trophies’ degree and Mars on this Youth Holding A Lighted Candle. Meanwhile, in Gaza, no electricity and no water.
I see Mars here as the need to slow down, take deep breaths, pierce into the invisible, the darkness, the shroud, and to take some lessons from the feelings that can be had through being ‘reverent’ and respectful. It’s a hard ask when people are pushing up against each other as they are now.
We are being manipulated by mass propaganda and lies. It was always thus, but this square is ramping things up considerably – and, it can be hard to know where the borderline between truth, opinion and outright lies can be. It might be good to ‘take shelter’
This Symbol shows a sense of faith and wide-eyed innocence that draws spiritual experiences in, sometimes in rather unexpected ways. There’s a feeling of reverence here, along with ritual and ceremony. The “Candle” depicts the light that illuminates one’s consciousness and “A Youth” implies a young person, perhaps doing an apprenticeship or an aspirant on the path to spiritual self-actualization. The “Youth” gets a glimpse into spirit, into the hidden side of life, perhaps having clairvoyant visions or getting goose-bumps from moments when the veil between the two worlds seems very thin. Rituals of all shapes and sizes and simple rays of hope give you spiritual strength. Light a candle and affirm your intentions.
Simple ideals. Ceremonies and attitudes pure and uncomplicated. Affirming intention. The light of consciousness. Naïve and well meaning gestures. Spiritualist meetings.
The Caution: Naive reliance on insincere promises. False feelings of reverence. Shallow responses. Placebos. Hallucinogens. Prejudice against youth and youngsters. Insincere.
