Arrow Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

Transits of Mars in 2009-2010
Crimes Of Passion & Dysfunction In Society

By Theodore White, judicial Astrolog.S
September 2009

In these rapidly changing times, I've been hearing more accounts from
people about the increasing rise in the appearances of dysfunctional
behavior. Often called incidents of mental health, it is not a wonder
that in these times of economic uncertainty and stress that many people
have been more or less prone to maladaptive behavior.

According to the American Psychological Association, there is somewhere
around 300 named medical terms that are listed as mental disorders.
These can range along a broad spectrum from schizophrenia, to phobias of
many kinds, to depression, anxiety disorders to mood disorders, and
those called personality disorders.

The World Health organization estimated that in 2008 that about 400
million people suffered from some kind of mental illness and forecasted
that by 2020 mental illness would be the second leading case of
disability and death.

Sociologists Robert Brym & John Lie state that -

"Americans are now experiencing more stress and depression than ever
before, due mainly to the increased demands of work and the growing time
crunch. Mental health problems are thus more widespread than they used
to be. At the same time, traditional institutions for dealing with
mental health problems are less able to cope with them. The weakening
authority of the church and the weakening grip of the family over the
individual leave the treatment of mental health problems more open to
the medical and psychiatric establishments."

Mars on The Rise

As a former police reporter, I often noted the influence of Mars during
spikes in dysfunctional behavior that led to seemingly strange acts and
towards violent crime.

Mars, in classical astrology, is known as the "lesser malefic" - and for
good reason. Master astrologers have noted the influences of Mars as
requiring careful handling because of its impulsive, and sometimes
violent nature.

Many of the events involving the transits of Mars in mundane affairs of
the world reflect the Zodiacal Sign the red planet transits. At the end
of the summer season in the northern hemisphere, that would the sign of
Cancer, where Mars is traditionally in its "fall."

This position of Mars in tropical Cancer during September and the first
half of October 2009 is not a positive transit. Mars does not operate
well in Cancer. The effects will mainly be on males, but females are
also affected by the transits of Mars, either indirectly as victims, or
as perpetrators of emotionally-cased criminal acts.

As a journalist and astrologer, I was often appalled at the things I saw
people do; especially to children. I observed that often the transits of
Mars were in play during such outbreaks, and especially during times
when there were unfavorable transits among the outer slower moving
planets, which then allow bodies like the Moon or Mars to act as a
trigger.

We have such conditions now with another exact Saturn/Uranus opposition
due in mid-September as well as a developing Saturn/Pluto square ahead
at the end of October.

Recently, we have seen just this type of news at the end of August and
into early September 2009. We also can expect more emotional outbursts
that led to accidents and the loss of life under the transit of Mars.

Here are a few examples:

Warning: these events are very disturbing -

The recent Mars/Pluto opposition that took place at the end of August
2009 as Mars entered tropical Cancer, and is still within orb of Pluto
in Capricorn in early September can easily be seen at play in the horrid
stories above as transiting Mercury squares Mars the first nine (9) days
of September.

Mars in Cancer will often signify weapons found in the home - usually
the kitchen, such as steak knives that are easily displayed. In two of
the stories cited, steak knives were used during the start of the
Mars/Pluto opposition.

The best ways to neutral the influences of Mars is by mixing its
transits with other planets if possible, but this requires foreknowledge
of transits, and we know that the general population does not have this
knowledge, nor make use of it.

During the transit of Mars in Cancer, many of the stories of violence
and murder to come will involve family members - signifying the Sign of
Cancer - "the home, family, items found in domestic spheres."

These cases are often crimes of passion, where the explosive and
impulsive reactions of Mars is violent - leading to death at times
because of the pent-up frustration of those committing such acts.

It is important during the month of September and October 2009 to be
more sensitive to the feelings of others - especially males and young
teens. Look for signs of distress which are not easily obvious at first
glance, and make sure that emotional states are such that one does not
allow situations to develop internally because still waters also can run
very deep.

Danger can also come from neighbors or total strangers.

Generally, it is wise during strong transits of Mars to first understand
where the planet is transiting. In Cancer, the sign ruled by the Moon,
and also the sign of the home, it is advised to take security
precautions such as locking doors and windows. During the summer months,
most people are careless about checking windows and doors, and are also
more susceptible to crimes.

In crime reporting I've learned that younger and older women are
more susceptible to crime, and should take care not to become victims
easily. However, no matter how old or young you are it is advised to
always keep your doors and windows locked, and to make sure that there
is little foliage like shrubs so your neighbors can see if there are
strangers around.

If you are ever confronted, here's a few tips I learned as young boy in
protecting my sisters and family:

Never - ever - allow yourself to be tied up. Always fight back, and make
as much noise as possible. Criminals often target older women first
because they believe that they do not have the energy to fight back. It
is advised to fight with everything you have and to be as brutal as you
can be going for eyes, ears, groin and head of a male.

Cases of dealing with family members, or friends are much more
complicated, as the stories above highlights. Therefore, it is important
to observe and note any emotional changes - even if they are minute and
do not "appear" to be anything out of the ordinary.

THE TRANSITS OF MARS

For six months - September 2009 to April 2010 - the planet Mars will
transit close enough to the South Lunar Node in Cancer, due to
retrograde motion that begins in December 2009 through March 2010, which
allows Mars to remain within orb of the Dragon's Tail into early
2010. Most of these effects will begin in autumn 2009, and continue into
months of 2010.

The effects of the economic crisis of 2008 and 2009 will have taken its
toll on many people by autumn 2009 and early winter 2010. During the
summer, and early autumn months of 2009, transiting Mars will be seen
high in the skies as the Sun rises in most geographic locations around
the world.

However, by mid-December, Mars will retrograde in tropical Leo, and set
in late January 2010, the effect of which will be to tire many males who
will sleep during the days, and remain awake in the night hours. This
effect is also one of insomnia for some, and nefarious actions with
others.

Mars been rising in the early morning skies since early December 2008
after the planet emerged from the Sun's far side. During the months
of January, February, March, April, May, and June 2009.

Mars has been steadily climbing towards the Mid-heaven of the Earth, and
will reach its peak by October 2009, when Mars will conjoin the South
Lunar node in Cancer exact on October 8. From that point on, Mars will
continue to remain within orb of the Dragon's Tail until April 2010.

The transit of Mars in summer and autumn 2009 is active, with males up
often before the crack of dawn, and others, up all night. The economic
crisis will have caused many males to worry excessively about money, and
some will attempt to meet these challenges illegally through malefic
behavior.

The transit of Mars through tropical Gemini in July & August 2009
signifies an active role for the planet worldwide. Weather is very
active, and the climate results in building heat, and winds leading to
wildfires, arson, and all manner of nefarious behavior globally.

The climate is at times sultry, hot, and humid through summer, and deep
into the autumn of 2009 in the northern hemisphere, with August and
through September featuring tropical storm and hurricane activity.

Transiting Mars enters tropical Cancer in late August 2009 and will
remain in Cancer until October 16, 2009. Mars is in its'
"fall" in the constellation of Cancer, and does not operate
well. Here, we see male emotions spilling over, particularly in the
domestic household through the months of September and October.

In addition, Mars' close proximity to the Dragon's Tail in
Cancer signifies problems in the areas of the home, personal
relationships with family members, and unemployed males throughout the
six-month period stretching from September 2009 to April 2010.

The continuing fall-out of the real estate and housing industry
worldwide. It also signifies the pressures within several generations of
families sharing one living space during 2009 and mid-2010.

Mars' transit through April 2010 will place additional pressures on
the unemployed and result in a rise in crime through this period as Mars
turns from a diurnal (daytime) planet in 2009, to a nocturnal planet in
2010, spending much of 2010 above the horizon at night while the Sun
transits below the horizon.

Mars is particularly active via its transits in Cancer in late September
and through October 2009 as it transits through tropical Cancer and
conjoins the South Lunar Node in Cancer. The cycle of Oct. 4-13 is
particularly violent as Mars contacts the Dragon's Tail, and Venus
conjoins transiting Saturn in Virgo.

Mars will slow down in late November 2009, and will station retrograde
at 19-LEO on December 20, 2009 (until turning direct March 10, 2010) but
will set, opposed to the Sun, and cross the descendant of most places in
North America on January 29, 2010, in a conjunction with the Earth on
that day.

The autumn months continues to see Mars rise at night, and by Saturday,
January 30, 2010, with the Moon conjoined to Mars at midnight, the
malefic nocturnal activities of Mars will peak worldwide, and will begin
to wane thereafter.

This means that Mars will begin to rise in the northern hemispheric
winter at sunset, before 5:00 p.m., culminate around midnight in late
January, and begin to wane through February and March.

The influences are

* Males sleeping during the short winter days, but active during
long winter nights
* Sluggish during daylight hours, slow to awake and get day
started
* Days starting around 4 p.m.
* Peak awareness during night-time hours
* Sluggishness returns around sunrise
* Criminal activity rises because of night crimes

The rise in international and national unemployment makes this
particular Mars transit from October 2009 through to winter 2010 very
strong. With double-digit unemployment, and with Mars gradually rising
earlier than the Sun, and then later with each passing month, this cycle
of Mars from late 2009 into early 2010 will feature some very disturbing
events, according to my analysis of world transits.

Most of the criminal activity ranges from assaults, rapes, murders,
club/bar fights, grand theft, burglaries and increasingly, crimes of
passion, during the months from October 2009 through March 2010 when
Mars stations direct.

Police activity to contain crimes will depend on the individual
departments and their ability to man certain days, weeks and hours
during the time that Mars spends time above the horizon during the
night-time and early morning hours from October 2009 to March 2010.

By June 22, 2010, Mars, now at 8-Virgo, has crossed the nadir and rises
about 11 a.m., and is now moving behind the Sun, until Mars and the Sun
meet in conjunction on February 2, 2011 in Aquarius.

The activity of Mars from summer 2009 to late January 2010 is strong at
night, and indicates a need for males to restrict their activity at
night to remaining indoors and to avoid contact with criminal elements.
The effects of Mars' transit from autumn 2009 to winter 2010 can be
debilitating for males and their families.

Women may observe that their male partners may be overly-emotional,
excitable, and prone to anger at the most petty of circumstances, often
leading to arguments, and potentially physical violence and abuse.
Sluggishness during the daytime hours as a result of the loss of
employment can lead to lethargy, frustration and a lack of general
direction for many.

The best ways to counter the effects of Mars', particular in Cancer,
is to focus the mind on relaxing, on planning for the future, and to
cultivate feelings of being helpful, while also avoiding over-reacting
to events emotionally.

A hot, dry, impulsive planet, Mars in astrological lore, does not
function well in the Sign of Cancer, ruled by the Moon, and as such Mars
often over-reacts emotionally when transiting in this Sign when faced
with common daily events.

Those natives with house and planetary placements in the Signs of Aries,
Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn will be strongly influenced by the transit
of Mars in Cancer during the months of September and October 2009.

During the transit of Mars in tropical Leo, those with placements in
Aquarius, Scorpio, and Taurus will feel the transit of Mars from
mid-October, November, December 2009, and into January, February, and
March 2010. This will repeat itself from the months of March through
early June 2010, as Mars moves direct in Leo and enters tropical Virgo
by June 7, 2010.

As with most transits of Mars, especially during transits times of its
detriment and falls, it is wise to take the time to be extra careful and
not engage in careless actions when knowing there is a higher percentage
of encountering dysfunctional behaviors in people.

Therefore, take care during the months of September 2009 into 2010 by
being more aware of your surroundings and the emotional behavior of
others.

Stay safe out there.

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

I have had 2 of your troubles recently: Sleep and finding a job . Even if I could, circumstances hold me back.

Oh well, there should be several transits ahead that give us strength, no?

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

I'm not sure if this relates exactly to what the article was stating, but I have noticed a correlation with transiting Mars and the behavior of my ex-husband (when I was married to him).

He had an (undiagnosed) personality disorder. And I noticed that during hard Mars transits for him, those times were when he had his rants/rages (which lasted hours on end, not just your run of the mill outburst).

I stumbled on the correlation by accident. But as I came to realize this (epiphany), I distinctly recall noticing an upcoming Mars square to his natal Mars aspect for him, and so anticipated another outburst. And yes, it did occur, on the day the transit was exact.

Interesting, the third week of August, as my children returned to school, an argument that had been brewing most of the summer, spilled over at school. My daughter was punched by a senior at the highschool. Her enemy was standing next to the girl whispering in her ear. She stewed over it. The next day I received a call that she and her 'enemy' had ended up fighting at school. She was suspended for 10 days.
My daughter related that at a football game last friday, many fights broke out and the kids were running from one fight to the next. It seems a lot more excitability than I ever remember at these events. Things just seem to be 'brewing' and there contacts do not end at school as they have constant conflict brewing on Facebook et al. One parent removed his daughter from another school just due to this on going bullying and conflict.

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

I am curious if you feel there was a connection to mars with the recent episodes of violence in one 24 hour period of Fort Hood and in Orlando. Mars in Leo at 9 50, is that not a critical degree in fixed sign? But it did not clearly connect to anything else accept through wide orb.
The Fort Hood incident had Jupiter,neptune, chiron on the asc with the moon as a seeming trigger at 22 degrees Gemini. The Orlando incident had the moon opposing Pluto and Saturn.
I am curious about these events and there corollary to current transits. Any thoughts Theo?

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

I find it odd too that the double digit unemployment announcement came yesterday with Saturn at 0 degrees Libra with one degree of exact square to Pluto in Capricorn. The beginning of the Cardinal Climax?

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

Don't forget about the Sun's placement. It is currently in Scorpio. Scorpio's ruling planets are Mars and Pluto. Also Merc was at the cazimi or near degree if the Sun and both tragic events happened around the early afternoon hour of 1:30.

This has my interest, I will go back and look again at the placements.

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

The other thing that interests me is the nodal axis moving to exact aspect to Uranus and Neptune. I am unsure if this could contribute as normally nodes are typically problematic at conjunction, square or opposition. But according to this article mars has some contact with this south node for some time even in Leo? Is it that sensitive to allow for up to a 10 degree orb? Just some thoughts and questions.

You are right on all counts, especially with the building Saturn/Pluto square, which is exact on November 15th and continues to have its influence through December, January, February, and March before easing that month, and then re-applying again in August 2010.

Mars plays a role, however, the Saturn/Pluto square shows that there is more to what happened at Fort Hood than meets the eye. According to my calculations there was more than one shooter. The man they are blaming could not have gotten off more than 100 rounds and hurt all those people by himself.

The Moon was in Gemini during the attacks, in a full lunar cycle, trine to Pallas, and to the stellium in Aquarius - this clearly shows more than one attacker. If anyone looks at the transits at that geographic area, and look closely at the position of the Moon relative to the other celestial bodies, it will become quite clear that there were more hands in this mess than is being reported at this time.

It will most likely come out, and cause another round of theories about what really happened, but there obviously were others involved than the one person blamed for it all.

The Saturn/Pluto square has its hand all over this as well, and calls to attention the building emotions about many things, war, religion, and the inability of people to listen sympathetically, and to make changes before such energies can build up to a peak.

The influences of this are general and spread globally. They spark off what is inside the people already, and incline, but do not compel, so situations that have been building without any kind of positive resolution are left to simmer on, until the influences bring them to boil over. We are seeing this occur now in the world, and this will expand before, during, and after next year's Cardinal Crisis transits.

It's a shame since much carnage can be avoided by listening, acting before such things happen, and calming down enough to make significant changes before matters get out of hand. It's going to get worse I'm afraid to say because I do not see people pre-acting enough to tone things down.

The best way to counter these things is to greatly reduce the cold, uncaring, unsympathetic attitudes/behaviors, and actually listen and help individuals and people having real-world issues to find ways to support them so they are not left alone to fester until these kinds of transits come along and spark things off.

One of the problems in today's society is that many people simply do not care - until after events like these sad evens have already happened, and, the reactionary response is to talk it to death, look at some transits of the incidents, and then to go on as if nothing ever happened until the next reactionary events come along.

However, if we use astrology properly, we can see some of these energies building and make take appropriate steps to ease down the influences of the transits by preacting rather than reacting to what obviously are tragic events. The loss of life, and the failure to listen, to care, and observe those in distress often leads to such very sad occurrences.

Like I said, it's going to get worse before it gets better. Next year's Cardinal Crisis transits are no laughing matter and there is much more on tap for the world into the 2010s until people start to lose the cold attitudes, lack of interest in peace, and get involved to greatly reduce the lack of caring for one another. These world transits are no joke.

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

Ceres is apparently prominent in the charts of many natural and "cultural" disasters. This planetoid is not just the nurturing mother, but also expresses the destructive qualities that appear in the goddess Ceres' mythology.

The Fort Hood shooting took place at about 1:30pm on November 5. At 10 degrees of Scorpio Ceres then squared Mars. Mars indicates not only violence, but it also rules soldiers and the military.

Ceres conjuncted the chart's sun-Mercury, suggesting involvement in the identity of the event and communication about it. Ceres makes no other major aspects, but reports indicate that the shooter called out, "Allah akbar" as he fired. I have usually thought of the septile (360/7, or about 51 degrees and its multiples) as a positive spiritual influence, but it can be negative also, as in the case of religious extremism. Ceres septiled Pluto and noviled (360/9 or 40 degrees) Saturn, possibly lending a religious motive to the powerful Pluto square Saturn. Pluto is, after all, the death god, and Saturn represents heirarchical authority--with which the military is replete. Saturn also rules police officers, and it was interesting that the MP brought down the shooter.

There has been a longstanding on-and-off septile between Pluto and Neptune during the past decades, which has been linked to some of the more deadly forms of religious extremism; or to near-religious movements like the Nazis. Such groups tend to be on the rise during close periods of the septile. Right now I think it is close enough to be in orb. Whether or not the shooting was religiously motivated, clearly the soliders were deploying to combat religious extremists.

Uranus sesqui-square Mars indicates a build-up of aggression and tension.

In terms of timing, the transiting moon can be a trigger point. It made an exact square with Uranus at the time of the shooting.

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

I have also come across a lot of literature 'blaming' increased bad temper, road rage, air rage and the like, on the increased acceleration of life, due to the instantaneosness of information exchange, such as the mobile, the internet (could that be as much a Mercury or Uranus thing as much as Mars?).

I would imagine that the coming Saturn/Pluto may exacerbate the sense of social injustice - I think there will be more negative reactions to the recession, austerity measures in other countries, perhaps more of an unlovely tendency to look for scapegoats, someone to blame, for these hard times also...

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

Thank you Theo for your reminder to all and to me to care and listen.

I do not know where I would be today if I had not had folks who took a little time to do this same thing for me.

Ceres conjuncted the chart's sun-Mercury, suggesting involvement in the identity of the event and communication about it. Ceres makes no other major aspects, but reports indicate that the shooter called out, "Allah akbar" as he fired. I have usually thought of the septile (360/7, or about 51 degrees and its multiples) as a positive spiritual influence, but it can be negative also, as in the case of religious extremism. Ceres septiled Pluto and noviled (360/9 or 40 degrees) Saturn, possibly lending a religious motive to the powerful Pluto square Saturn. Pluto is, after all, the death god, and Saturn represents heirarchical authority--with which the military is replete. Saturn also rules police officers, and it was interesting that the MP brought down the shooter.

There has been a longstanding on-and-off septile between Pluto and Neptune during the past decades, which has been linked to some of the more deadly forms of religious extremism; or to near-religious movements like the Nazis. Such groups tend to be on the rise during close periods of the septile. Right now I think it is close enough to be in orb. Whether or not the shooting was religiously motivated, clearly the soliders were deploying to combat religious extremists.

Uranus sesqui-square Mars indicates a build-up of aggression and tension.

In terms of timing, the transiting moon can be a trigger point. It made an exact square with Uranus at the time of the shooting.
Good analysis Waybread. Ceres in Scorpio was also opposed to Hasan's natal Ceres in Taurus. There are still mysterious circumstances around the tragic event that will come to light in the days and weeks ahead as more emerges about how all this came to be.

I would imagine that the coming Saturn/Pluto may exacerbate the sense of social injustice - I think there will be more negative reactions to the recession, austerity measures in other countries, perhaps more of an unlovely tendency to look for scapegoats, someone to blame, for these hard times also...
Possible, we are more likely to see this sense of social injustice emerge more widely with the coming Jupiter/Uranus conjunction next year. The Saturn/Pluto square is much more likely to increase the cold, unsympathetic, and internal battles within institutions from November to March, and then again, by August through October 2010.

People should slow down, and learn to digest all the global communication with more depth, rather than allowing their brains to become soaked with too much surface data with not enough time to fully explore things in-depth. The austerity measures that you speak of are already underway, and as the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto T-Square of next year kicks into action we should see these measures fully implemented in many countries.

There are those to blame for the economic crisis, as it did not come about on its own, and is not "natural" whatsoever. In order to repair the crisis, it must be fully understood how it came about, and those who caused it so the work can begin to undo what has been done in order to repair what can be fixed before it is too late. That time is fast approaching.

In order for the Phoenix to be reborn, it had to die. I feel that it's the same analogy here. For our Common Humanity, a revival is necessary. And so, we follow in the wake of the Phoenix.

Re: Transit Of Mars: Crimes Of Passion

Thanks for the article, Theo, and waybread thanks also for the heads-up re Ceres. I had not previously known of this connection.

I had a quick look at the chart of the Port Arthur massacre - 35 shot & killed, 21 more injured - in Tasmania, Australia on 28th April 1996. Like the event a few days ago in US, the person who was jailed for this massacre was most likely not the only one - witnesses in the cafe at the time saw a guy use a gun like he was military personnel, and the guy who was named as the perpetrator could not have `achieved' this much devastation in such a short time.

The chart of the event has Mars in Aries (!!!) squaring a wide conjunction between Neptune & Uranus - a close square to Neptune, but wider to Uranus. Saturn was also inconjunct Moon, and trines Pluto. Ceres is in Sag in 4th house, and is largely unaspected - unless you count a trine to the Leo Asc of the event.
(I mentioned Saturn's placement at the time of the event because the Australian Govt at the time jumped on the band-wagon and used the event to create an amnesty for a handing in of weapons. There was a conspiracy theory rife at the time that the Govt had engineered the massacre for its own ends...... who knows?)
