As this aspect is happening exactly at this moment, the drive to get things moving forward wherever these planets are located in your personal chart. Will be what has been and is currently in focus for you to work on. We can see this especially when using the eastern principles and how the need to understand these are of a paramount importance in our mostly westernized (quick) thinking, moving society. Since Saturn is one of the slowest moving planets and Mars is a faster moving one. It's almost like the east is joining with the west at the moment, and finding some kind of balance is what the two are both doing. It's like a dance!
As well as the fact that they are in the deep thinking and feeling sign of Scorpio, also ruled by Mars as well as hidden knowledge. The drive to get things moving forward and to bring things to the surface that have remained unnoticed, will be at the forefront of the subconscious as well as the collective.
Since the western zodiac can contribute to our earthly mind especially if we also live in the west. So too can the eastern contribute to knowing our heavenly one, and who we are as, not just as a person on earth but also as a soul from the divine.
Myself, personally, I see myself as a soul with a body and not the other way around I.e, as a body with a soul. I think it's important to have your priorities straight when it comes to your most fundamental aspects. In order to not only gain a thorough understanding of yourself but to also make sound decisions.
Getting back on track, if you didn't already pick up on it. I feel like if your going to use the western system of astrology with the eastern one. It's best to associate the slower moving planets with the eastern system and faster moving ones such as Mercury, Venus and Mars with the western. Since the tropical zodiac is to fast for these old timers.
If you've ever travelled abroad, even to places like Eastern Europe, you will know what I mean by slow, in comparison to the west. From a personal standpoint the chart reading is more accurate, when it is approached in this way.
Not only are we seeing astrology come together more and more globally but also in the fields of preventative health care, spirituality and science. All realizing that one could not exist without the other.
