The heroic act as a means of activating stability and fertility in life.
Values, attachments and our relationship to change
A new lunar cycle begins with an emphasis on values and the tangible reality of our lives. It is a fertile circle that urges us to communicate what we “possess” through alternative or unorthodox conditions, environments or relationships. The process will bring forth the power of our “voice”, the potentiality of socializing and encountering others, but will also show the resonance or the significance, of those things we believe, we love, we receive pleasure from and think to be our very own.

Any threat to our value system at a collective or personal level may externalize combative responses and a kind of passing on the torch to Mars in order to reinforce reforms, completion, and promotion of radical actions towards a new order of things.
