Mars in Capricorn, the Tower's Lightening Strikes the Devil

Mars moves into Capricorn today and will stay there until December 26th.

Looking at this transit from a Tarot point of view, it’s like the Tower’s lightening is striking the Devil’s lair.

When the Tower appears, it always bring surprises with it, especially for those who think they’ve got things under control.

It’s not causing trouble for trouble’s sake, but when ideas or situations become too entrenched to grow with change, the Tower swoops in to clear the air. It’s not always pretty, but it always gets things moving.

It’s important to remember though, that the Tower does provide an enlightenment of sorts, it’s just one that usually comes from out of nowhere, and can knock you off your feet for a moment.

Unlike the Tower, the Devil is usually quite stable, or at least he likes to think he is. As long as he controls the chains, he’s happy to keep things as they are.

It’s all about the physical with him, the tangible and the real. The material world is his domain and he maintains an obsessive watch over it all.

The Devil needs to be careful though, not to become too oppressive. If he keeps trying to run the whole show, there’s always a chance he’ll face a rebellion within the ranks.

And the Tower’s appearance can cause just such a challenge. When the lightening strikes, all the old rules are out the window.

Mars in Capricorn, or the Tower’s lightening striking the Devil’s lair, can be a time of powerful recharge.

If you’ve been stuck in an oppressive mindset, or in a situation where you’ve felt a lack of control, this is an excellent time to positively mix things up.

There’s a chance now to let go of rigid thinking and to break free of rules, self-imposed or otherwise, that serve only to dominate rather than to guide.

Be open to sudden illumination, and willing to take charge of your own material domain. You might not control everything, but you do control yourself. Don’t give your power away.
