Valour Candle

Mars in Leo Decan 3 – Rising with Venus – in a Grand Fire Trine

The focus of this election is Mars in Leo decan 3, a part of Leo that Mars rules. This decan in the Tarot is the 7 of Wands, Lord of Valour, which is all about keeping your spark alive and the Fire burning hot, resisting defeat. Leo symbolizes creativity, power, and strength; as we approach the end of the sign, holding onto these things becomes the focus. Our kingdom is at stake and we’re forced to defend and protect our legacy, vitality, and our very ability to be in control of our lives.

Venus is applying to a conjunction with Mars, adding her blessing of love, passion and creativity to the mix. The two are in a Grand Fire Trine with the Moon in bold Sagittarius and Chiron in self-assertive Aries. This bolsters Mars and stokes his Fire, ensuring that the energy is burning ever brightly.

Another interesting component to this blend is the exact Venus-Uranus square. This confrontation encourages growth, change, and creative spontaneity. Mars is separating from the square to Uranus, and this energy is still present, signifying the intense need to break free from limitations, pursue our desires, and assert our creative will in the world.

Sun-Mercury in Cancer: Tapping into Apollo’s Wisdom

The Sun is the ruler of the chart, conjunct Mercury in Cancer in the 12th House of the subconscious. This emphasizes the prophetic nature of the blend, with Bay Laurel’s association with Apollo. Force alone is not sufficient; wisdom and prophecy will guide you in the right direction. Never forget the intuitive part of the Fire element, trusting your impulse and gut instincts.

The Sun and Mercury are trine Saturn, which gives dedication and persistence to reaching your goal. The election takes place during the day of Saturn and hour of Mars.

Sun-Mercury sextile Jupiter on the Midheaven

Helpful in terms of assuring victory and success, Jupiter is in a prominent placement at the top of the chart. The Sun and Mercury form an advantageous sextile to him, offering enthusiasm, encouragement, and fortuitous good luck. Positive thinking carries you forward and helps you attract support and good fortune toward your cause.
