Some Mars in Aries Precautions
For as much as the Mars in Aries energy propels us forward, there are a couple of characteristics and traits that we have to look out for. Yes, Mars in Aries can be very bold and innovative, but Aries is also not known for its standing power. What this means is that Mars in Aries will get something started, but follow-through is not a strong point for Aries. Likewise, Mars in Aries is not afraid of taking risks. While this is beneficial, it is important during this time not to take risks that could potentially be too impulsive.
Mars in Aries can also have quite the temper when angered. During this six-week Mars in Aries transit it is easy to get angry, so take some time to really assess what makes you angry…especially if you are the type that is already temperamental. You wouldn’t want to blow up at the wrong person and end up regretting it.
Finally, competition fuels Aries. Aries’ desire to get the top spot is confirmation of the fact that it is the best. However, everything is not a competition. Sometimes it’s important to choose your battles wisely. Even though Aries isn’t really known for its wisdom given that it is the first sign of the zodiac, it’s possible to step back a little bit and really ask ourselves whether or not it is worth it to compete and/or argue.
Overall, the energy of Mars in Aries helps us tap into our innate ability to become the pioneers of our own lives and have enough courage to own our own experiences and take the risks that could potentially lead to exciting new ventures, experiences, and opportunities.
