MORE ASTROWEATHER: MARS CONJUNCT SATURN
Mars, planet of Passion, conjuncts Saturn the Disciplinarian, planet of authority, image-consciousness, rules and regulations this Friday, July 10th.
More details from astrology.com below:
On July 10, Mars conjuncts Saturn -- a significant event that affects us all!
Mars takes about two years to transit through all 12 signs of the zodiac. On July 1, it entered the sign of Virgo and on July 10 it will move within a degree of Saturn, which has been stationed in Virgo since September 2007. This will be the closest Mars-Saturn conjunction until 2022!
Mars is the planet of action and Saturn is the planet of discipline, boundaries and authority. When these two planets come together, especially as they do now in hard-working Virgo, you have the opportunity to get more done in one week than you have all year! So, if you have a project you need to kick into high gear, now is the time to advance it. It will require focus and concentration, but rewards are possible. Because of the placement in health-conscious Virgo, this conjunction especially favors beginning new health and fitness programs. So, if you have been waiting to start a diet, a gym membership or a yoga class that sticks, now is your chance!
Remember: this conjunction is not a magic wand! If you are typically lazy or impatient, expect to be tested and challenged. If you enter this period with maturity and are willing to put in the hard work necessary, you'll succeed beyond your wildest dreams!
