This connection is valid late 19th October through 22nd October 2012
Mars in the next couple of days meets up with one of the great stars of the sky, Antares the heart of the Scorpion in Scorpio and the "Watcher of the West". The Persians said of this star that it was the star representing death and the dead. This is a star with with a reputation for having success but only though a regenerative process, of letting something die before something better can replace it. It is connected with obsession and intensity, wholeheartedness and ruthlessness.
When Mars, the old ruler of Scorpio comes along to meet with Antares, often there are consequences associated with many Scorpio themes which come to light. Looking back at the last 3 times Mars was at 9 Sagittarius where Antares resides here are the major news stories that were hitting the news wires...
In Nov 2010, the international big news was mass protests and clashes against a train carrying dangerous nuclear waste across Germany.
In Nov 2008, the Mumbai terrorist attacks happened as Mars met with Antares.
In December 2006, the big news was in Britain as a serial killer was in the middle of a killing spree aimed at local prostitutes in Suffolk, north east of London.
As you can see, when these two meet up there are often rather nasty incidents and ramifications associated with very Scorpionic themes. This time Mars as it makes it's connection with Antares, it also makes a fire trine to Uranus in Aries. This sounds very accident prone to me or a time of rebellious action, the trine allowing action and maybe dangerous force to happen. I would not be surprised if some freak happening, something like a major fire or explosion causing death and destruction hit the headlines, unusual sexual crimes or scandal, or possibly riots which get out of hand.
For you personally, the intensity and obsession of Mars and Antares can propel you to great heights, but something or some part of your life may have to be discarded in the process. Passion will be in the air and for those in love this will be a short time where you can completely let go of your inhibitions. If you are planning to do anything risky or dangerous, take precautions as we are reaching a very accident prone few days...
Have fun, but please be careful..
