Mars (action, initiative, anger, sex) enters disciplined Capricorn on October 26th. Mars is strong (exalted) in this sign, because its fire is focused and strengthened by Capricorn's rules and ambition.
This is a powerhouse transit.
You can do so much with this, in the context of your natal Capricorn. Mars will trigger opportunities to advance and compete. But the energy will be controlled (and a bit ruthless). This is the get-it-done transit with a side order of "me first." It's all business, but sometimes that's what you need to hit the nail with the hammer. When initiative is given form, it's amazing what you can accomplish.
Mars in Capricorn will make the following aspects:
- November 1st: sextile Neptune Rx at 4 degrees Pisces
- November 10th: conjunct Pluto at 11 degrees
- November 12th: sextile Chiron Rx at 13 degrees Pisces and square Uranus Rx in Aries
- November 20th: square the Nodes at 18 degrees Libra/Aries
- November 21st: sextile Mercury at 19 degrees Scorpio
- November 24th: inconjunct Jupiter at 22 degrees Leo
- December 1st: sextile Saturn at 27 degrees Scorpio
Mars will not perfect a sextile with Venus in Scorpio (although they'll come close from October 26th-27th, with the Sun in Scorpio close to Venus). But I think you'll still feel them interacting, possibly throughout Venus' entire Scorpio transit. Venus is what you want and Mars is what you do to get it. This Scorpio/Cap mix is serious business. Be prepared to go to the wall for what you desire, and put in the work (Capricorn) to make it happen. Plus, Pluto (Scorpio's ruler) is in Capricorn, and Saturn (Capricorn's ruler) is in Scorpio. There's an exchange between these signs that's heightened by Mars and Venus.
This combo can be heavy. Scorpio is about death, and Capricorn is about the steady advance of time. There's a whiff of mortality. No flowers and pretty words, but this mix does indicate absolute commitment. Only those who are serious (and mature) need apply. This is love and sex for the long haul; after the facade has come down. The wafflers and casual flirts will not be comfortable with this energy.
If you're serious, look at Scorpio and Capricorn in your chart. Scorpio is where you attract what you desire (or amputate the people/scenarios that are draining your energy) and Capricorn is where you put your plan into action. Scorpio only considers people/situations that are positive resources, and Capricorn only deals with what's absolutely necessary.
Mars will exit Capricorn on December 4th.
