Mars, planet of fighting, has been in Aquarius since December 4th. This is the sign of the Genius, the Heretic, the Inventor, the Mad Scientist, the Rebel, the Revolutionary, the Exile, and the Eccentric. According to astrologers Steven and Jodi Forrest, people with Mars (assertion) in Aquarius (independence) express their inner warrior by questioning authority, breaking rules, and exploring cutting edge methodologies. (Source) This is the Mars placement most likely to engage in iconoclastic, visionary, alternative, or antithetical forms of behavior. The following news articles have all been published since December 4th when Mars moved into Aquarius. You’ll notice that each one involves Mars (fighting, conflict) in Aquarius (for the future, via technology) in some fashion:
Pacific Standard has an article on how traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) considers disorders like asthma more emotional in origin than physical. At first that sounds like something Mars in Virgo (health consciousness) would be into but the article approaches the matter from a point of view that breaks the rules of mainstream, Western medicine which tells us there is no connection between mind and body. So it is actually a very Mars in Aquarius style approach. Aquarius is also the sign of the electricity and TCM fights (Mars) disease by adjusting the body’s subtle electrical currents (Aquarius).
