It’s a clash of the titans as Mars enters Libra on September 14 where it will stay until late October. The planet of war meets its match with the peaceful sign, bringing changes for all signs of the zodiac. For driven, determined signs, Libra’s mellow energy can be a little frustrating and draining. On the other end of the spectrum, signs that are already mellow are feeling Mars’ fiery energy, bringing on heightened emotions and passive-aggressive tendencies.
However, there is an upside. Mars also rules our sex drive, and although it may be dampened by Libra, the collaborative planet makes relationships stronger. So, although things may not be as spicy, it’s the perfect time to get close to your partner or saddle up with someone new. Building those emotional bonds now will make things even hotter when Mars moves into Scorpio in October.Read More »
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Although you’re usually decisive, you’re finding it hard to make up your mind and it’s starting to wear on your confidence. Instead of letting Libra get the best of you, lean into it! It’s time to tackle team projects at work – although it may not be easy to let someone else take the lead, you may gain new ideas that will help you in the long run. There’s good news for your love life, too! You’re super in tune with the needs of others, boosting your relationship and adding a little spice in the bedroom.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Libra is going to work on that stubborn streak, opening you up to new experiences and other points of view. This new, open mindset is going to be fire for your relationships, helping you find someone unexpected or uncovering new things about your partner that make you fall even more deeply. Overall, it’s a lucky time for you. Any pursuits, whether at work or in your personal life, that include partnerships are destined for success. Make the most of it and shoot for your dreams!
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Although Libra loves socializing, the sign is a little more mellow, lacking your boundless energy. With Mars in Libra, you may feel impacted by the low-key sign. While you’ll still be your social self, you may find yourself burning out more quickly in social situations, needing alone time more often. While you typically like to keep things light, Libra also pushes you to express your innermost feelings and create deeper connections with those around you. This could be just the push you need to create lasting friendships and take your romantic relationship to the next level.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
You’re usually pretty practical, but Mars in Libra helps lift your feet off the ground. This combination sparks your creative side, thinking more about “what could be” than your current reality. It’s a time to reinvent and have some fun! Lean away from your comfort zone and start tackling passion projects, even if others aren’t supportive. Focusing on new activities that bring you joy helps boost your confidence and those around you will certainly notice! Not only will your social life bloom, but that confident glow is just what you need to generate sparks with that special someone.
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22)
You’ve got money on your mind and it’s paying off! Partnership is your secret weapon with your relationships helping drive your success at work. Seeing financial gains or expecting your hard work to pay off, you may be quick to start spending, especially when it comes to your love life. Whether it’s buying new clothing, splurging on fancy restaurants or fancy gifts, think twice before you go overboard! Even though things are going well, make sure you’re leaving something in your savings account.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Libra and Mars are giving you a burst of energy and confidence! With Libra lending its diplomatic ways, you’re able to tell it like it is without hurting anyone’s feelings. This sign also helps you get out of old routines, feeling more spontaneous and free to unlock your creative side. Your relationships will also benefit from this transit, bringing out your romantic side. Don’t be afraid to let loose and get out of your comfort zone, trying new activities with friends and leaning into love!
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
With your sign in Mars, you’ll be feeling a little conflicted. While you’re feeling more confident and assertive, the aggression of Mars can also bring out passive-aggressive energy. During this period, it’s especially important to resist talking about other people behind their backs. Even though you need an outlet for these stronger feelings, Libra is driving others to connect and share, which may include gossiping about the secrets you’ve shared. Keep your head down and push forward! Mars is pushing you to reach your goals, accomplishing things you’ve never thought possible before!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Being in quarantine over the past year has led you to focus more on your work than some of your relationships. It’s time for that to change! You’re doing well in your career but this is an opportunity for you to start reconnecting and strengthening friendships and romances that may not have gotten as much attention over the past year. While Mars is in Libra, shifting your focus to activities that help and support others will bring you much more happiness than pursuing your own interest.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
You’re full of hope for the future, already making plans for the months and years ahead. You’re even tackling a few passion projects, and although they may get derailed due to your busy social calendar, don’t get discouraged! As you think of all the things you want to accomplish and talk about your ideas with friends and coworkers, you’ll find that a lot of people are eager to jump into the ring with you to help fulfill your dreams. Though the support sounds amazing, remember that once Mars moves on from collaborative Libra, not everyone will follow through on their promises. Pick your partners carefully!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
You’re not typically one to make waves, but this combination has you thinking big. You’re ready to make a bold move, throwing caution to the wind to take a shot at your biggest dreams. This may mean getting a new job, taking up a personal project or investing in developing your skills. Whatever it is that you’ve been wanting to do, go for it! Leaning on friends and family is the best way to hash out your ideas and get great advice on how to start moving along your new path.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Your busy summer is coming to a close, giving you one more opportunity to set off on a sunny get-away before cooler weather creeps in. Whether you’re planning to take a few days off or just spend the day in a nearby town, spending some time relaxing with loved ones is just the thing you need. Mars in Libra brings out your social and creative sides, helping you think about your future in new ways. As you socialize, you’ll be feeling optimistic and willing to say yes to every opportunity. While everything seems exciting right now, be careful not to make promises you may not be able to keep.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Passionate Mars has you hunting for romance and ready to settle down. You’re feeling good about potential (or current) relationships, even if it may still be early. While Mars is in diplomatic Libra, your partner will be more likely to be on their best behavior. In new romances (or even budding friendships and partnerships at work), take time to make sure you can trust this person before you commit to anything long-term.
