Once again, Mars is on the verge of changing signs. Because this hot-blooded planet rules energy, initiative and sex, you may feel the shift even if he doesn't hit any of your planets or angles.
Mars enters Capricorn on November 16th. He's strong (the technical term is exalted) in the sign of business, discipline and status. His "go for it" energy has a focus. And you know how powerful focused energy can be. This is the young warrior (Mars) who has matured into a seasoned general (Capricorn). Unlike Scorpio's obsessive, emotionally driven focus, Mars in Capricorn is about business first, passion second.
The house in your chart that holds Capricorn will be fired by Mars until Dec 25th (when he moves into Aquarius). Capricorn is where you're most practical, but also have a need for status and recognition. Expect those needs to be triggered. What can you do with this energy?
- Start that project you've been putting off. No more excuses. Just do it. You'll have a lethal combination of ambition and discipline.
- Get real about what/whom you've been noodling over/lusting after. Doable? Great. Construct a plan of attack and mobilize. Not doable? Great! Now you have more energy to direct towards something realistic.
- Earn respect/recognition where you feel unappreciated. The key word is "earn"; you'll have to prove your worth.
- Exercise some authority. This one is tricky, because if you're feeling weak, you're liable to push too hard. Remember that Capricorn (when used correctly) is about measured authority and confidence.
Mars will be making some volcanic aspects to Uranus and Pluto, but I'll discuss those closer to the dates (November 23rd and 27th, respectively).
