A somewhat less hog-tied Mars, direct in Libra as of May 19, is now moving back through the loaded territory of the April 20 - 23 cardinal Grand Cross configuration.
We have officially hit the wall on certain fronts. Things are no longer business as usual. New directions are being demanded in light of the circumstances. We will not be continuing in certain directions or with certain people, and this becomes very clear and very final as Mars picks up speed direct into a square to Pluto in Capricorn. The Mars-Pluto square is exact on June 14 at 6:44 a.m. CST, but the tension and friction are strongly in effect from now into late June.
There is a definite edge to human relations now. This will be alleviated somewhat by Venus moving out of Aries and into Taurus on May 28, but the martial edginess does continue through the end of June.
