Mars in Pisces - Eternal Affectations

Artist Francis Bacon has Mars in Pisces
Part of an obsessive series of Screaming Pope paintings over years, initially inspired by Velasquez's Pope Innocent X portrait in Rome but constant reworking may have been psychological turmoil over his homosexuality.

On the 2nd February, 2013 the warrior planet Mars packed its kitbag and set off on its journey into the water world of Pisces, where it will encamp, compelled to love and be loved until it begins to spring into action and gambol and jump onto the energetic trampoline of fiery Aries on the 12th March, 2013.

He wrote for UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown who also has Mars in Pisces
On the 28th February 2013 he is standing as Labour candidate in the Eastleigh by election
'Suddenly, I feel really lucky to have an outlet for the profound sense of outrage I feel about this coalition government. This is the most important and interesting byelection for years, with the bizarre situation of Liberals and Tories fighting each other for the right to vote for exactly the same terrible policies. How could I not want to get in and help Labour stop both of them?
While Mars is here, swimming in the oceans of Pisces, it will be mutable, mobile and malleable on any number of ‘issues’ whether personal, social or universal. During it’s stay in Pisces it floats and gets pulled by the strong currents and tides although it is also muscular enough to swim against the flow should it so choose.

'Everyone's been so quick to say that Im really thick or I haven't got a brain... I have got this obsessive compulsive disorder where i have to have everything in a straight line or everything has to be in pairs..People react to criticism in different ways, and my way is definitely to come out fighting.'
Mars the planet of action will be driven to rescue and provide a raft for those who may be drowning or engulfed in conflict. We may find ourselves torn between intervention and laissez faire or just full on or full off. We may want to help then at the same time feel equally powerless to do justice to our ambitions. Whether split in two, torn asunder or just dithering and juddering on the spot, our actions will not be quite so clear cut or simple. 
Singer/SongWriter/Counter-culture Icon for 5 decades Bob Dylan has Mars in Pisces 
 Beat Poet Allen Ginsberg also has Mars in Pisces
'There is a very famous saying among Tibetan Buddhists: 'If the student is not better than the teacher, then the teacher is a failure."
Mars love a good fight and whilst it was in humanitarian and freedom loving Aquarius some real battles played out on the global stage. ‘The People’ elected in a new government in both Japan and Israel. The USA watched and listened to the inauguration speech by President Obama speaking for 'we the people', sparking up heated debate about the meaning of liberty and liberalism as well as bringing into high focus those in the minority or outposts of society. 'We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths—that all of us are created equal—is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls and Selma, and Stonewall.'
On a truly sad note, the tragic shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School also sparked up the issue of freedom and the cost to safety in daily life of the American citizen insistence on the right to bear arms and the protection of their children.
America's former child star sweetheart later Ambassador Shirley Temple Black has Mars in Pisces 
Temple was a toddler as the New York Stock Exchange crashed on 'Black Tuesday' leading to the Great Depression. In her 80's he has seen 'Black Monday', another global financial crash triggered by the US housing market bubble and the lowering of the US financial triple A rating.
'I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph'
Facing the future what can we expect of Mars as it now clammers, trying hard to keep its shape and find its form in the transparent opaqueness of water? When looked at directly water will both reveal and distort the image beneath it and in much the same way Pisces can be both unfathomable whilst appearing transparent. Pisces emotions and feelings appears to be on display and yet Pisces can often absolutely confound any further attempt at questioning or analysis. Mars in watery Pisces will actually feel what it is like to ‘be there’ and it's actions will be visceral and emotionally driven. However, the Pisces fish do swim in different directions and get pulled into eddies that can get very murky. 
Radical Islamic cleric Abu Usamah has Mars in Pisces
Due to visit Reading University's Muslim Society in February 2013 amid protests and cancellations from several other UK universities. 
An American convert to Islam and last seen on Channel 4 ‘Undercover Mosque’ 'Whoever changes his religion from al-Islam to anything else kill him in the Islamic state.''Allah has created the woman, even if she gets a PhD, deficient. Her intellect is incomplete, deficient. She may be suffering from hormones that will make her emotional. It takes two witnesses of a woman to equal the one witness of the man.' Also calling gay people 'perverted, dirty, filthy dogs who should be murdered.'Do you practise homosexuality with men? Take that homosexual man and throw him off the mountain.'
Mars in Aquarius chose to hover above it all, creating a barrier of protection and still being able to give forth its opinions. Mars in Aquarius - Idealistic Battles & ContradictionsWhile part of the Mars picture can be about planning, thinking and preparing, in essence Mars just wants to move, to spring into action and flex its muscles. Mars in Pisces wants to prove itself by ideally defending the weak, championing those who can’t champion themselves and by winning an essentially ‘unwinnable’ battle.  Its weapon (Mars) is often ideology (Pisces). It may function on the social level making sure everyone in its group is treated charitably and as compassionately as possible. It may want to function only on the personal level and treat others with forgiveness and mercy or it may function on the universal plane seeing to it that large groups are treated with care and soulfully.
Stylised Counter-culture Icon/Sex Symbol' Ernesto Che Guevara has Mars in Pisces
'Better to die standing, than to live on your knees.'
Universal image of Marxist revolutionary Guevara 'Guerrillero Heroico'
 by Cuban photographer Alberto Korda is seen in a myriad forms around the world. 
 February 2013 a billboard outside the 5 star W South Beach hotel in Miami had to be removed as Cuban-American guests continue to be offended by the image which turned out to be yet another self-portrait pastiche of Guevara this time by UK artist Gavin Turk. 
Check out the Pisces zone in your own chart. This area will see the passing of a zealous compassionate avenger or defender through it and used wisely this energy can be healthy and much needed. For instance if Pisces is your 6th house zone you could save a work colleague from a situation that they are struggling with by listening or counselling them through it. Or is it passing through your 4th house zone of family and you need to open up your home to people or even creatures who need rescuing.
Actress/Author, eternal bun hairstyle Princess Leia Star Wars Icon, Carrie Fisher has Mars in Pisces 
She may even return in Star Wars Episode 7. Her complicated family situation drama involved her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, Mars in Pisces and iconic beauty actress Elizabeth Taylor, Mars in Pisces
Conversely, used more negatively you could get lost in a sea of endless possibilities. You could feel unable or too fearful to choose an option and act that may cripple all your best intentions. If it is moving through your personal 11th zone people you value as friends may eventually drain you or take advantage of your good nature. 
Going through your 7th house zone perhaps a partner may never get round to saving themselves as they keep relying on you to do it for them. Or perhaps they never got around to saving you.
Actor Heath Ledger playing legendary lover Casanova, both have Mars in Pisces
'When anything is blocking my head or there's worry in my life, I just go sit on Mars or something and look back here at Earth. All you can see is this tiny speck. You don't see the fear. You don't see the pain. You don't see thought. It's just one solid speck. Then nothing really matters. It just doesn't.'This is the way he always was. He was always a thought ahead. He was the hardest person to play chess against.' N'Fa, close friend of Ledger who was a chess fanatic.
Pisces going through your 5th house zone and your kids will be testing out your No! maybe feeling that it does not really mean No! but really ‘well maybe’.
We can all use the power of Mars to motor us through to our goal, ignite our passions, fuel our issues and drive us ever onwards. During this time with Pisces we may lose our sense of individual self, which could be excellent in some situations and disastrous in others, so ultimately we must make a choice. This is not something Pisces is comfortable with but with the planet of Mars urging action, well, we just might take to being the intuitive warrior and moving with the affectations.
Singer Adam Levine has Mars in Pisces
'You wouldn't be a complete band without a slightly cocky front man would you?'
