Retrograde Mars in Libra turns direct on May 20 at 9 degrees of Libra. This Mars stationary turning direct position is inconjunct Neptune in Pisces within a degree and a half. This suggests covert agendas and subterfuge going on in the background. Mars doing a retrograde cycle in Libra indicates that fundamental justice and the rule of law are at steak. The recent Supreme Court refusal to hear the case of the constitutional challenge to the recent NDAA act which allows for the secret arrest, torture, and killing of American citizens without legal recourse or due process is typical of the current fascist take over of the federal government. Corruption in all 3 branches of government in violation of the constitution is radicalizing much of the general populace into feeling that there is no option left but revolution. After Mars turns direct he will square Pluto in mid June and oppose Uranus in late June, thus forming a dynamic cardinal sign T square with Pluto and Uranus. The high tension grand square configuration that occurred in late April did not create the obviously extreme events that many astrologers expected. This in its self is a very hopeful sign. The established power structure wants to provoke violence. That would give them the excuse to impose a police state lock down and impose martial law by using there near total monopoly on the technology of violence.
That late April passed without more obviously extreme violent and destructive events is probably because the grand square configuration signifies situations in which attempts to solve problems in one area aggravates conditions in other areas. There has been much violence in many parts of the world especially the Ukraine and in the Middle East. As bad as it has been so far, it could have been a lot worse. In the grand square configuration any one of the 4 arms of the grand cross can act as a focus for the energy of the grand square configuration. This tends to dissipate the energy of the grand square configuration. The grand square can therefore signify grid lock. By contrast a T square is highly focused and directed.
It is also important to understand that the important square in the US horoscope between the 2nd house Sun at 12 degrees and 44 minutes of Cancer and the 5th house Saturn at 14 degrees and 47 minutes of Libra continues to be activated by transits of Mars, Uranus and Pluto. This applying Sun-Saturn square is only almost exactly 2 degrees from exact. Transiting Mars in Libra is conjunct the US Saturn between June 14 and 27, 2014. Transiting Uranus opposes the US Saturn between the 1st of May, 2014 and the end of March 2015. Pluto is within a 2 degree orb of square to the US Saturn March through June of 2014, and then retrogrades back to oppose the US Sun over the summer and fall of 2014. Pluto is square the US Saturn again between mid February 2015 and the end of February 2016. It is in the time span of these transits that there is the biggest danger of a stock market crash and banking crisis. This could start to happen as early as mid June 2014. The solar ark Moon of the US chart is also conjunct the 5th house US Saturn in Libra.
The T square configuration in contrast to the grand square focuses the energy of the T square through the Planet that is square the two planets that are in opposition. This is called a point focus. Dynamic highly motivated individuals often have a T square in their horoscopes. In this case Pluto in Capricorn is square the opposition of Mars in Libra to Uranus in Ares. The grand square of late April had Jupiter in Cancer as one of the arms of the grand cross which could have moderated the more obviously and overtly extreme expressions of violence and disruptions that could have occurred in the US in late April of 2014. Police brutality has increased and many destructive things that have occurred that have not been reported, at least not in the main stream media. Jupiter was conjunct the Sun in the US horoscope during the grand square. This Jupiter conjunction to the US Sun and Jupiter transiting the US 2nd house in general has provided some temporary protection for the US economy.
Many hidden but extremely important things could have happened under the grand square of late April the consequences of which may not be obvious to most people until later on. That later on could be under the T square of middle and late June. This T square involving Mars in Libra in square to Pluto in Capricorn and opposition to Uranus in Ares is a very incendiary combination. It is like the astrological equivalent of nitro-glycerin. Some high handed arrogant action of the co opted government in mid June could be the flash point that provokes an angry and possibly violent public response in late June.
