Mars has moved into Scorpio and we should all notice it. It will be in Scorpio until January 4th 2020. Mars is a difficult planet who on the positive side brings energy and accomplishment. On the shadow side Mars emanates strife, aggression, and war. Mars has been in the sign of Libra where its temperament is cooled, it’s aggression hesitant, and its nature underhanded. Mars in Libra is not great at accomplishing things as it is risk adverse.
Mars in Scorpio is a whole other matter. Here the activity of the planet of activity is swift. While it can be biting because the strikes of the swords and arrows come in the night. We are now in the season of less light in the northern hemisphere and Mars enjoys the cooler temperament. This is because Mars is a hot planet, and by rule of what we astrologers call sect, does better when its heat is cooled.
When we speak of any planet in astrology we have to look at it from two perspectives. One is the clinical level of how it effects the chart and the native. In that sense, Mars is a real difficult energy. Whatever house it fall in in your chart, there will be difficulties that you will have to over come in your life.
The other approach to looking at planets in a chart is how can we use the spirit of the planet to enhance our life. For Mars, where it falls in the chart shows an area of your life where energy and vigor will return rewards.
You can look to the house in your chart ruled by Scorpio and see where energy and vigor will bring rewards for the next 6 weeks. Mars will be in Scorpio until the 4th of January.
