Confident that he learned everything he needed to know while he was in Sagittarius, Mars packed up camp and sauntered into Capricorn, where he’ll devote the next six weeks to climbing up the ladder of success.
As the planetary pioneer of the zodiac, Mars is very much at home in this achievement-oriented sign because it’s the sign of his exaltation. In other words, Mars brings out the best of Capricorn and in turn, the Seagoat brings out the best in Mars.
For example, Mars’s naturally competitive nature, entrepreneurial spirit and fearless temperament are tempered and enhanced by the sign’s practicality, patience, purpose and perseverance.
As a result, Mars pursues goals with foresight as well as passion, with consistency as well as vigor and with common sense as well as courage. That’s why whenever Mars is in Capricorn, he’s at the top of his game.
To say Mars is in it to win it is an understatement, but while in Capricorn he’s not just in it for the glory or the prizes or the applause. Those are just gravy.
He’s in it for the respect. It’s not enough to receive public recognition because he broke a world record, his company is first to market or his book is #1 on the bestseller list.
When Mars is in Capricorn, he wants more than public acclaim. He wants to be recognized as an expert in his field and he’s willing to go the distance to achieve it.
That’s why during this time many of you will feel more inspired and goal-oriented than usual, while those of you who tend to be overachievers will probably feel like you’re in overdrive.
And just as Mars in Capricorn will never settle for second-best, neither will you.
