In a few African traditional spiritual traditions, there is the idea that the gods can mount or ride you as they would a steed. This means your body becomes a vehicle for a manifestation of the god in the world, perhaps with a message or action that must be performed. Often, this embodiment of the deity is in a safe, ritualized environment. A similar notion does exist in the West, as when people are “touched” by the Holy Spirit in evangelical church traditions. We also have this notion in the mytho-historical stories of oracles, like the famed oracle of Delphi.

In astrology, the thread of these traditions is not as clear. But they are there. From the east, in India, the planets are known as grahas. The Sanskrit word “graha” means to take seize or hold of. From this angle, the planets grab hold of you. You must find some way to embody or express them.

This seems particularly true when captivating Mars is a major player in the heavens. The newly matured Mercury teams up with Mars on Wednesday by conjunction. This adds sparks to how we speak with others. This can either incline us to be sharp and to the point. Or we could, in turn, be too pointed and cutting. So, be careful.

Then Mars is at loggerheads with pressurizing Pluto by opposition on Sunday. Mars, as a prime symbol of action and struggle in motion, requires that we “Just Do It.” Or the frustration of not doing something, whatever it is, leaves us being ridden by anger and resistance. This uneasiness can increase when Pluto is in the mix. We can be grabbed hard and roughly.

This isn’t necessarily created by the physical Mars in the space. But the mysterious forces and circumstances that we use to describe this energy as Mars. The planets speak the language of the soul. In the quiet of an alert mind, you will know how to embody what Mars longs to act out. What Pluto wants. You, a creature of creative thought, can find the appropriate context, whether ritualized or not. Or, in ignorance, you could ignore the cosmic wave sailing through us now. That’s not wise. Aspire for an action that’s mighty. That requires you to dig deep and perhaps in uncomfortable places to pull out gunk. Then you will be riding your planets rather than letting them ride you.

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

 

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

There’s always more percolating beneath the surface with you. This might be truer now than usual. That’s why people shouldn’t rely on reading your face as if that allows them to read your mind. Your face could be several feelings or thoughts behind. That’s why it’s important for you to be more in touch with your feelings and thoughts than most others. Of course, you can do that through meditation. But it’s also important to hone in on your body. Maybe the best way to do that is through some kind of hard work or to do something physically demanding. Otherwise, you likely will find it hard to sync up what’s happening in your soul with what’s happening in your body or across your face. Others will probably have the same problem.

Affirmation:
I encounter and embody my feelings and thoughts through vigorous action.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

Pour your energy into something great. A great endeavor often requires great preparation. So, lay the foundation for something big. Or, at least, what seems scary enough to make you nervous. Perhaps it’s a new kind of fitness class that looks like it’ll kick your butt. Yet, it will help you get the results you exactly want. Or you write out a plan for a business you’ve always wanted to launch. Take the first step. Don’t judge how impactful you think it will be. The first blow against whatever dragon that’s coiled around your dream is always the hardest to make.

Affirmation:
I strike the first blow against a dragon of fear coiled around my heart.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

Enlist your friends to do something that will compel the best out of you, like charity work or a pledge to improve yourselves in some way. Don’t focus or harp on the friends who aren’t feeling you on this. Otherwise, you’ll be dragging them into something they won’t really want to do. Keep your patience, too. Your mind will likely be razor sharp. Not everyone will be able to keep up at all times. Give others (or yourself) more credit for trying something difficult than praise for something they could accomplish easily.

Affirmation:
I strive to accomplish a difficult task with others that will only make us all better.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

A popular Libra in the Twitterverse recently wrote, “I know how to take it from sweet to street real quick.” People tend to forget this about your sign. Of course, you have to protect your boundaries and do what’s right. But be careful of acting too hastily. You don’t always have to be the harbinger of justice. Sometimes you only need to let someone know that you’re not going to allow her to commit an injustice against you. Likewise, be sure that your anger about something isn’t distracting you from a more important task or issue. For instance, don’t cuss out a co-worker over something trivial when you’re not ready to stand up to your own boss. Fight the right fight.

Affirmation:
I fight the right fight.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

That war that frequently churns within you will probably be full-on now. I tend to call it the “jihad” of your sign. Jihad has certainly gotten a bad reputation over the years. However, Islamic scholars are very clear that the real war isn’t so much about assaulting others who have a different faith than you. For you, it’s even simpler: the battle is to have more faith in yourself. One Scorpio I once knew put it best, “Sometimes I feel like everything. Other times, like nothing.” Don’t lose heart when everything you are seems leveled to ash. And don’t lose your edge when you’re triumphant. Fight the battle for middle ground.

Affirmation:
I hold the middle ground between being everything and nothing.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Short-term financial fixes likely don’t seem to do the trick as well as before. You’re going to have to dig deeper and perhaps work harder on something that will compel more out of you. It’s okay if you have no idea right now how all of this comes together. Direct your will toward a solution first and the means will come. Perhaps you will need to spend more money to cultivate a new skill set. Or you must settle old debts before you can trust spending more on a new venture you have planned.

Affirmation:
I work deeper and harder to manifest more of my worldly treasures.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

You’re the wise master of the “slow burn.” Wisdom is in choosing what to burn and exactly how slow. Be slower to burn bridges and your patience. You don’t have to return anyone’s force at the level he or she delivers it. In fact, many martial arts emphasize using someone’s force against him, like stepping aside as someone leaps at you. Likewise, if someone flares up at you, give it some time before you answer. And when you do respond to a challenge, let it come from that slow burn. You won’t have to start anything to finish it. You’ll have the reserve and resolve to go the distance.

Affirmation:
I burn slow and long when surrounded by the dark emotions or thoughts of others.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

As dreamy and open as many make you out to be, you still surprise others when you go “hard.” Perhaps they don’t realize that much of your illustrious high-mindedness comes from a rock quarry where pieces of you have been chipped off by marauding disappointment or disillusionment. You might be as hard on others as you are on yourself. Yet, that’s often unnecessary. People do better with mercy than any kind of ruthlessness. Instead, keep your resolve to hold fast to your dreams. Push yourself to the limit as necessary. Of course, discover new limits. But know and respect boundaries. Yours and others.

Affirmation:
I have mercy for limits, once I know and have reached them, whether my own or another’s.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

A test of wills with a friend or with a group will end up testing more of your own nerves. That doesn’t mean you have to “let them win.” You just don’t have to invest so much of your ego’s energy in winning. Chances are the stakes are not life or death. So, keep a playful attitude about how you experience the challenge. Focus more on what inspires and suits you rather than being sucked into somebody else’s head and motivations. You’ll end up playing “a better game” and not feeling drained.

Affirmation:
I address a challenge with a lighter heart and touch to have a better experience of it.

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Brace yourself…for yourself. The temperature’s rising and you are too. That’s awesome for tackling big home or work projects. Rising in the ranks on the work front. Cleaning out the basement for a big garage sale. Going for some overtime! Yet, remember your temper can also rise when you feel strong surges of energy. Think, “I’ll keep it moving,” when you feel a little stuck on needing to fix somebody rather than fix something. You’ll keep the peace without anything (or anyone) falling to pieces.

Affirmation:
I keep it moving onward and upward.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Of course, you can be laidback. But you might not realize how much force you pack even in the most casual of opinions. This will be triply true when you’re actually excited. I mean, you could gush about someone’s potato salad and have folks in their feelings. Some might be intimidated by how much energy you put into what you say. Yet, you can be really convincing if you talk and observe how someone else responds. Just don’t lapse into sticking in your own groove. The more you listen for feedback, the more laser-like will be your own thoughts.

Affirmation:
I listen out for feedback as feed others my thoughts.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

As you build back up in confidence and strength, your mind will look to firm up other facets of your life, like your finances. Look closely at everything. Evaluate whether there are other ways to manage existing debt. Scrutinize your bills for surcharges you shouldn’t have. Lighten as much of your financial burdens as you can. Then start rolling up your mental sleeves for how you can hustle up more money, even if you have a full-time gig. It’s time to get more with less.

Affirmation:
I strive to claim more with a lighter load of debt and unnecessary expenses.
