Shamanic Astrology treats Mars as the Masculine, the Yang, the Animus. Carl Yung suggested the Masculine is the a man's sword. The Sign of Mars, therefore, represents the Sword Quality of the God a man chose to investigate, integrate, honor, and embody. In a woman's chart, the sign of Mars is the inner-Masculine, which is typically first projected without until the Sacred Marriage process is complete.
But it's time for the Balanced Masculine now! Mars is reborn today as the Libra God. This is the partner, the relationship expert, the diplomat, the communicator, one who honors all opinions as much as his own, one with a finger on the pulse of group moral and consensus reality. This is the Round Table Masculine! Let's hope that world leaders feel this shift. Let's hope Libra Mars' role in the Grand Cross is to bring Masculine Balance to this time of great rEvolution and not war as some suggest, for the Libra God is not a warrior. He's the very guy that termed the phrase, "make love, not war." Okay, okay, that phrase was clearly created by the Feminine, but it came forth at a time when the Masculine was listening to others, honoring balance, and clearly communicating the nature of harmony, equal partnership, and Divine justice.
We know the new Round Table has equal room for the Feminine for Libra is balanced in all principles of Yin and Yang. And because Venus was recently reborn as Capricorn Goddess on January 17th (Video about that), the voice of the Wise Elder Grandmother Goddess will be heard!
