Mars Square Rahu-/Ketu, Mars Disjunct Uranus

Mars will be in exact Square aspect to Rahu on Monday-/Tuesday, April 30-May 1. The planet of Action, Aggression and Conflict is now at 90 degrees to the Rahu-Ketu Axis. Rahu and Ketu are the eclipse points: the points in the Heavens where the apparent paths (as seen from Earth) of the Sun and of the Moon cross over each other. When a planet is square to the nodal axis it puts a lot of Tension on that planet and its significations. The potential for dramatic events is increased when the planet happens to be a natural malefic, i.e., Mars, planet of War, capable of causing Destruction.
In Vedic Astrology, Mars is considered to project its energy with full force to the 4th sign (90 deg.) ahead of itself (called the Forward Square in Western Astrology). Mars, now @ 11 deg. Leo, sends its energy to Rahu, now @ 11 deg. Scorpio. Mars is the ruler of Scorpio. Thus the planet aspects its own sign, boosting the energy of Scorpio. Scorpio is especially adept with Secrets and Investigations. Rahu is a "Shadow Planet"(eclipse point) thus: Hidden Actions, Spies, Terrorists, Secret Agents, etc. For the past week, and continuing this week, the News has been full of Scandals and Investigations.
Mars' Disjunct Aspect on Uranus is Exact (<1 deg.) this week and next week. Mars puts out a special aspect 210 deg. ahead of itself (called Disjunct, or Inconjunct in Western Astrology). Thus Mars in Leo is affecting Pisces, wherein Uranus is now transiting. The planet of Aggression, War, and Destruction afflicts the planet of Sudden Unexpected Events, Freedom and Independence, Social Revolution. This too is a Destabilizing Affect, and not favorable to those who are trying to Maintain or Establish Freedom from the Ruler: Mars is in Leo, sign of Rulers and Governments, Uranus is in Pisces, sign of Hope and Expectations.
Mars and Sun are still in Parivatana Yoga (see previous posts). Mars benefits from its interaction with the Sun, giving the Advantage to Rulers and Governments for another two weeks while the Sun remains in Mars' sign Aries.
