Mars Rx reenters Scorpio on May 27th, launching a deeper stage of its Rx journey, that began on April 17th (in Sagittarius).
The resonance between Mars and Pluto (Mars is the conscious expression of Pluto's unconscious desires/transformations) will become even more pronounced. Mars Rx in Scorpio will take what was stirred up during the Sag portion of its journey (the questions, delays, reruns, second chances, intensified efforts) and drill down for underlying motivations. You'll be pushed as deep as you can go, regarding actions, sexual issues and anger.
This portion of the transit can reveal unexplored pools of resources. You may discover that you have more - determination, strength, courage, finances, power. Sexual connections can intensify, as you and a partner confront limits around intimacy, and push past them. You may also discover that you, or someone else, is angry - this will be the time to deal with that anger, so it doesn't fester and become toxic.
Some of you will confront old compulsions or obsessions. If you find yourself revisiting areas where you feel out of control, know that this transit will draw your attention to why and how. Obsessive behaviour is an attempt to maintain control, which means there's a fear of loss. Pay attention to how your actions are the physical manifestations of your fears.
Mars Rx will cover 29 to 23 degrees Scorpio. Issues from February 18th, 2016 to March 5th, 2016 (when Mars in Scorpio hit those degrees earlier in the year) may be revisited, even if you thought they were completely resolved.
