After more than five weeks of being immersed in Pisces’ sea of tranquility, Mars knew that unless he made land soon he would be condemned to live the rest of his life as a sensitive man.
Emotionally waterlogged, the planet that never says die pressed forward until reached the Aries shore where he was greeted with a hero’s welcome.
While Mars is in his own sign, he is confident, courageous and competitive. As he makes his way through Aries, he does so with a definite purpose in mind and keeps his eye focused on the prize at all times.
Although his intention is generally is noble, his behavior can be less than sterling, especially when he doesn’t get what he wants according to his definition of a timely manner. Patience is simply not his strong suit, and he tends to suffer from bouts of narcissism. Consequently, when he feels disappointed the impulsive, arrogant and aggressive side of his often gets the better of him. While it is true that Mars fury often passes as quickly as it ignites, the same cannot be said for the emotional wounds suffered by the victims of his wrath.
Likewise, during this time we may feel more self-assured, ambitious and assertive. As long as we exert patience and remain aware that everything is not all about us, this may an excellent influence for setting goals, initiating actions and achieving our objectives. If not, we will encounter resistance and be forced to tackle more obstacles in our path.
Finally, Mars represents our sex drive. While in Aries, his passion burns intensely and he longs for an opportunity to express it. Fortunately, Venus has been following his trail, and on April 7 the goddess of love will rendezvous with Mars in the heavens for a passionate embrace.
At that time, many on the earthly plan may feel inspired to follow their lead and ignite their own flames, while others may experience this influence as an energetic fireball of optimism, enthusiasm and ambition.
Mars is in Aries from March 12 – April 14.
