- Sunday, Oct 26 2014 Mars enters Capricorn
Mars entered its sign of exaltation at the start of the week. This gives new elevated status to armies, young men, war… anything ruled by Mars. It also means that Mars and Saturn in Scorpio are now in mutual reception. This means that they have ‘exchange status’ in readings. It is auspicious for any strategic undertaking of a mars nature, fights, competitions, and acts of war. Mars in exaltation (like any exalted planet) is often put on a pedestal. The result has been soldiers given a hero’s status this week when Peshmerga troops entered Iraq and was greeted by crowds of people celebrating their arrival.
“(Reuters) – A convoy of peshmerga fighters from northern Iraq headed across southeastern Turkey on Wednesday towards the Syrian town of Kobani to try to help fellow Kurds break an Islamic State siege which has defied U.S.-led air strikes.”

Mars forms an suspicious aspect to Neptune, planets of illusion and secrecy. A positive manifestation of this aspect would be to create something new that deals with men, machinery, or other mars ruled subjects in a spiritual or imaginative way. Movies that center around men, war, fighting, etc may do very well now. On the other hand, this aspect may indicate developments of secret attacks, chemical attacks or slander being spread.
Intuition may be heightened now and this is a good time to act on any gut feelings or premonitions. This aspect also favors volunteer work, helping the less fortunate, water sports, and even taking pictures/videos of mars related topics (war, fighting, competition, men, etc.)
