MARS IN ARIES Starting on the 29th June, Mars will begin a 6-month-long transit through its home sign of Aries, finishing on the 7th January 2021. This will usher in quite a significant change in our energy levels, as we go from feeling vague and confused, almost like we’re running through water, to heightened physical energy, as well as energy that is clear, direct, and at times confrontative or aggressive. There will be a huge emphasis on the self as well as our independence, and how we embody our identity in the way we assert ourselves.
Let the spontaneous, fiery, get-up-and-go energy inspire you to partake in some kind of physical exercise; if you don’t direct this huge amount of energy into a physical outlet, it could make you feel extremely restless and fidgety, and may find its way out through sudden bursts of anger and flare-ups of temper.
In addition to being active, Mars in Aries is asking you to be direct when it comes to asserting your boundaries, and confident in speaking your truth and standing up for what you believe in. Keep in mind that disagreements can easily escalate into aggressive or even violent situations because of this heightened masculine energy, so practise how to state your arguments and maintain your boundaries in a non-confrontational way. This impulsive, fiery energy doesn’t usually last long, so there’s no need to worry too much about anyone holding grudges, but be careful of saying things you may come to regret while in the heat of the moment.
Can you say “no” without being mean about it? You may also find that you have the drive to take action and start new projects that you’ve been thinking of or planning, but the impatience and frustration that this Mars transit brings may see you losing that initial enthusiasm very quickly, therefore unable to see the whole thing through. From the 10th September until 24th November, Mars will be retrograding in Aries. As with all retrogrades, this period calls for introspection as we are being asked to slow down and re-assess the projects we are currently taking action on, the way we assert ourselves and how we achieve our goals. The sharp clarity of Mars in Aries will become a bit confusing and ambiguous, leading to uncertainty and a drop in confidence as we start to hesitate and second-guess ourselves and our intuition.
Even though there may be stagnation and a lack of momentum during this retrograde, try not to make any major decisions on an impulse or a whim, especially when it comes to career. Continue to move your body to prevent frustrations from exploding into pointless arguing. You can channel the impulsive and spontaneous energy of Aries into this physical outlet by deciding what kind of exercise you would like to participate in as each day comes, which also helps you to maintain some confidence in your intuition as you listen to what your body needs and wants.

When Mars will be squaring Jupiter in Capricorn, be careful not to overestimate your strength, as Jupiter can lead to an expanded and magnified perception in regards to your masculine energy. Make sure to think decisions through and avoid taking hasty action, as an indulgence in your impulsive side may lead to actions or words that are much more forceful and harsher than you intended.
Mars in Aries squaring Saturn in Capricorn is testing your self-control as you feel a restriction on your assertiveness and masculine energy. This challenge may see you facing resistance when it comes to activities or actions you want to partake in. Don’t let bursts of anger, frustration and aggression get in the way of the need to find solutions to these challenges.
Mars in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn is again asking you to develop your self-control and self-awareness. Be wary of taking things to the absolute extreme as this aspect heightens impulsive and compulsive actions and behaviour, especially when you react to situations in self-defence. A strong desire to be dominant and in control, paired with a quick and extreme temper will test your ability to react with maturity and your intellect, rather than with your emotions.
This Mars in Aries transit is asking us to focus on yourself and the way you act on things. Are you taking action towards becoming who you envision yourself to be, and towards becoming more self-aware? Can you learn to think more before acting too impulsively? What activities can you do to increase self control and discipline.
You may be highly restless and impulsive. You want to be free to do what you want and going through your daily routine will not be enjoyable. Take a day off if you can, start a new and innovate project or do something radical to change your behavior. You may feel need to rebel against authority or parental figures and you want to assert your own individuality. If you are feeling frustrated, it could mean your ego energies and personality are not being expressed and you should look to how you can change your life. Expect the unexpected right now.
Intensity is what the Moon in Scorpio is all about. Whether it’s passion, elation, sorrow, or desire, emotions are felt on a deeply personal level. We are motivated by the desire to get to the bottom of things, and we instinctively read between the lines. Superficiality won’t work for us now. The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power, and it’s an excellent time to rid ourselves of old fears and limiting habits. It can be an intimate and passionate time.
There is increased jealousy, greediness, envy and other negative feelings. Sexuality and sensuality go up and strong powerful emotions run high whilst diplomacy and tact will noticeably decline. However, it is a good time for any occupation which needs intensity and total devotion. The Moon in Scorpio generally favors intimacy issues, psychological examination, research, self-examination and shedding old habits.
