Maleficent Mars

Today the Moon joined up with Mars in Libra and Disney released the third trailer for Maleficent. Angelina Jolie looks even better in this one than she did in the others, because this time she’s got wings, and I love it. Jolie has Moon conjunct Mars natally, but in Aries, so this Mars retrograde’s gotta be hitting her in some way, I wonder if we’ll ever find out what it is.  I liked this trailer, it’s the first one that hints at any sort of sympathetic back story for her character, as messy a maternal role model as a retrograde Mars can muster.  On May 30th, when the film releases, Mars will be direct and opposing her natal Mars within a degree.  It’s curious because one of the things she is famous for is being a mother, and this character is so distinctly non-maternal, but very Mars.  I’m interested to see how it plays out for her.
