More on Mars

Many seers, prophets, and astrologers have been writing about the upcoming Winter Solstice time period and making predictions. And Mars plays a leading role in these often-time dire predictions.
On December 24th, there will be a Sun-Mars opposition plus Mercury, Jupiter, Sun, and Pluto will align with the Galactic Center. Mars rules fires, crashes, explosions, and clashes, and thus, it's easy to see the cosmic set-up for challenging times.
What is going to happen I've puzzled. Will there be a disaster(s) like the warnings foretell?
As it so happened, I recently read Kathryn Winter's Astrology Newsletter article titled "Unusual Techniques of Chart Interpretation--Oprah Winfrey". At the very bottom of the article on Oprah, there were two asterisks. (Yes, I'm 'that' Virgo who actually READS the asterisks!)
The first asterisk really caught my eye as Kathryn referenced Mars, and since I've been puzzling over these predictions, I paid attention. She was referencing Out of Bound Mars when she wrote, "* For example Mars was OOB at 9/11. In this case the war-like nature of Mars was acting in an uncontainable manner. In the Christmas 2007 season, Mars is once again OOB in high declinations, so one must expect the potential for terrorism or erratic acts of anger to be higher at this time than 2006."
This last Mars clue has made me super aware of the critical nature of the time period ahead. However, rather than move into fear with this , I propose prayer and intention that all of us pay attention to our OWN out-of-control Mars reactions and pump up our intentions for Harmony and World Peace!
