Now that Mars is moving forward, make sure you consider your emotional state before you make any major moves. Emotional intelligence will make it possible for you to use your deeply sensitive nature to make moves that benefit you in the long run.
Mars in Leo
With Mars in the bright, sunny sign of Leo, you are motivated to seek the spotlight and anything that makes you feel as if you are the best. This position makes it more likely for you to get caught up in taking action to feed your ego. It is important that you consider how your actions can benefit not only yourself but also help other people stand in their light.
Mars in Virgo
Mars in the critical sign of Virgo makes for keen, precise actions. You can definitely use this forward-moving Mars energy to move with clarity. Because you are an efficient doer, you will find that you are able to eliminate the unnecessary in order to optimize your drive and will to your benefit.
Mars in Libra
This is an interesting placement for Mars as it doesn’t function at its best. Libra energy can be quite indecisive, so in order to make the most of this position, it is important to weigh your options carefully and make a concerted effort to make a decision. Once you’ve decided that you’re going to make a decision, give yourself a set time to come to a conclusion. In this way, you are using the power of your ability to weigh your options while avoiding the trap of indecision.
Mars in Scorpio
Mars in Scorpio is a keen, exacting energy that knows exactly what it wants. You’ll do your best moving forward by keeping your intentions to yourself. Scorpio operates best undercover, and you will be quite pleased with yourself at all of the strategic moves you can make to get yourself ahead especially when no one sees you coming. This placement operates best as the ninja.
Mars in Sagittarius
The Mars in Sagittarius placement benefits from being expansive and seeking out new frontiers. You wouldn’t want to waste your energy by just keeping to one place or holding one perspective. You are definitely driven to seek out anything that’s different from what you know because this is what allows you to learn and be more. Take advantage of your natural drive and your eternal optimism to move ahead.
Mars in Capricorn
Mars in Capricorn is an exceptional position as this placement is considered exalted or at its best. This is due to the fact that Mars operates with responsibility and accountability in the sign of Capricorn. More than any other placement, this allows you to be driven by practical action that is combined with hard work, self-control, and lots of effort. Success is guaranteed to you if you are willing to actively make a plan to put your drive and will to use.
Mars in Aquarius
The Mars in Aquarius vibe is driven and motivated by shocking shifts. If you hold this energy natally, you have the potential to progress in a manner that makes an impact for yourself as well as for others. While there is a progressive nature to this placement, you are encouraged to use your energy wisely as there can be an erratic effect that has the potential to not only create major shifts and changes but to also cause a lot of chaos and recklessness.
Mars in Pisces
Mars in Pisces is often seen as very go-with-the-flow energy. In some ways, this placement isn’t really at its best because instead of taking direct action, it is more oriented to waiting for things to come to it. If you happen to have this placement natally, you do well with allowing your intuition to be your driving force. In many cases, it does lead you to where you’re supposed to be without much effort. Just be careful about waiting for things to happen for you as this could lead to missing out on opportunities due to your inability to take charge of yourself. Use your intuitive knowledge as a motivator for advancement.
Now that Mars is moving forward, make sure that you are using your natal Mars energy at its best so that you can take action and move forward with intention.
