Planetary War between Mercury and Mars (27 Oct 2023 – 6 Nov 2023)

What is the cause of this dynamic?  Mercury and Mars are at war.  Planetary wars occur when two planets share a degree and sign.  During this period Mars and Mercury would be in exact conjunction  in Libra, along with Debilitated Sun, all in Swati Nakshatra ruled by Rahu, who himself is going through the ‘Gandanta’ (the point representing the Karmic Knot that is very challenging  to untie)

Please note, Mars and Mercury are bitter enemies in conjunction  and

  • Mercury signifies ‘communication, documents, media and friends’.  Mercury needs to win through the Intellect  and Speech.
  • Mars signifies ‘action, courage, bravery, disputes, rash, impulsiveness, and  aggression’.  
  • Mars is  to Action orientated to win a War of Words.
  • Mars flares up when things do not go his way
  • This configuration casts shadows of aggressiveness and confusion that will disrupt the balance of intellect and actions, inviting personal and professional obstacle
  • The two create squabbling and irritation and it will be felt particularly by Aries, Gemini, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio  rising and Moon signs

Please DO NOT  let   your frustration and irritation  go too far and damage your relationship with family & friends.  Rather you must find a way to release your anger,  frustration and irritation  before it gets further dangerous. Here are possible tips to let take anger out by:

  • Go for a long walk
  • Do Pranayama (breathing exercises)
  • Drink coconut water  
  • Precise Mindfulness and Mantra
  • Scream as loud as you can when alone at home or in a car
  • Look at yourself in the mirror and observe how do you look when in anger


Always believe that Brighter Days are on their way into your life
