Mars in Scorpio July 26th –
Mars will soon feel better, stronger, faster and more virile! For all of us this translates to a surge in energy, a better focus and a greater and much deeper urge to go for it!. After what seemed like the longest stretch, Mars after the indecisions and extremes of Libra finally moves on and takes control of his own power and drive. Yet we hope his long sentence in Libra has helped us to learn patience, diplomacy and at least some better manners. There is a reason for all our planetary transits, they keep us in check, teach and guide and help us to evolve toward better people and more fulfilled human beings, if indeed we heed the cosmic messages. Read about the transit that was Mars in Libra, to know what you’ve supposed to have integrated! And keep that in mind as you read on.
The glyph for Mars is made of the circle of spirit with an arrow on top rotated
135 degrees pointing outwards. (symbol to the right)
The arrow is the symbol of will, direction, masculinity and taking action, representing a primal energy of spirit being directed and focused. The scorpion’s body is represented in the Scorpio glyph by an M-shape, with an arrow extending outward depicting the scorpion’s sensitive tail and readiness to act(symbol to the left). Both glyphs are strong symbols of action and drive, although Scorpio is a contained energy yet always ready to strike. Now together and with Mars in his own traditional ruling sign Scorpio(the other being Aries)Mars can now act, deliver and move more effectively!
In this part of the zodiac with Mars in Scorpio in rulership, till mid September, he then moves to fire sign Sagittarius, another bonus, after which he moves to Capricorn where Mars finds his exaltation(highest regard, Honours)until he moves off to Aquarius by December 6th 2014. Therefore we now have the next 5 months of Mars in pretty good shape, compared with the last 8 months with Mars in Libra in his weakest position and for a long retrograde. Mars’ retrogrades are perhaps the most potent of all retrogrades as they are the rarest. Mercury is retrograde 3 times per year, Venus every 19months, and all the planets beyond Mars once per year, whereas for Mars it is only every 2 years. There is no doubt we will feel the energy shift in our lives and the world around us.
So watch out for what might be coming your way, or rising up from deep within. Anything pent up, will now get the guts to be released, as Mars acts instinctively in Scorpio to get things done. Mars represents our fight of flight instinct. Mars’ energy is sudden and impulsive, energetic and physical, Scorpio’s is intense and passionate and craves intimacy and trust. We begin to seek experiences that require trust, courage and confidence, accentuated by Jupiter now in Leo. Our inner warrior, now becomes super impulsive, deeply emotional and sensitive and even finds the courage to confront what is dark and fearful. In Scorpio’s domain Mars is encouraged to penetrate and probe, solve mysteries and uncover truths. It’s like a detective given a mission, who can’t stop or rest until the job is done and all has been worked out, uncovered. Any lurking doubts about your motivations will rise like monsters to confront you. The hero within must confront his demons too, get them out of the way and sorted, that’s Scorpios’ job, before moving onto the freedom and adventure and truth of Sagittarius.
Scorpio rules our reproductive organs and genitals and all parts of the body that expand, reproduce, eliminate or expel. Mars rules adrenalin, blood, sexual drive and passion. The coming together of these two vital forces, is a primal creative source, potent and penetrating.
It’s always good to note where Venus will be during Mars’s transits, now in Cancer, yet soon to enter fiery Leo. A much faster mover than Mars, Venus will square Mars on 26th August as Mars is conjunct Saturn, one of the most challenging transits for Mars in Scorpio. Mars wants to move, Saturn holds him back. Mars’s time in Scorpio starts however with a square to confident and proud Jupiter in Leo, the clash could feel like a sentence or a penance sent down from God, what may we be punished for and have we gathered enough strength to fight back? As mentioned before Mars in Scorpio, cannot NOT act, as impulse and emotion drives one to re- action in Scorpio.
How will you release the creative force of Mars in Scorpio? Lots of potent potential lies within this combination, just remember it is better to make love, not War and create, not destroy, and it’s up to you if you decide to transform yourself, your drive and how you act or react on things. Move towards eliminating that which is no longer necessary in your life and in You! Scorpio does highlight those we are most intimate or involved with or that which we are most passionate about, like a divine calling, so empower yourself with positive passion and heat things up with your desire for Love and passion , Not war.
