Thankyou for your reply LinThis cycle Mars will be in Aries for 6 months. YOu can check this yourself in an ephemeris.
After that Mars will go back to spending around 2 months in a sign....until it goes into retrograde again in 2 years (in Gemini.)
on a chart for the next year from Astrodienst it shows that mars is only at 0 degrees for a really short period where I will have mars sextile Venus (10th Gemini) with mars sextile Venus natally and mars conjunct mars (8th Aries) no natal aspect in this but a mars square moon aspect. Similarly, it shows Saturn trine Venus (where I have a natal aspect of Venus square Saturn 6th) in and out for longer over a year. On a different site I was told that Saturn won't impact upon me yet mars will which doesn't make any sense as Saturn always seems to impact upon me.
