Mars enters Aquarius on the evening of November 8th/morning of November 9th (depending on your timezone). The sign of the outsider and the future will be energized with the action planet. And (true to Aquarian nature) possibilities are difficult to predict.
Issues can play out in a few different ways. Aquarius' detachment and Fixed nature may cool Mars down. Actions and initiative might be delayed, because the urge to make it happen becomes theoretical. But this is also the sign of trauma and liberation. If Mars triggers a hot spot where anger about rules or repression has been simmering - look out. Reactions can be sharp, sudden and total.
The best use of this transit would be to liberate yourself from unproductive conditioning. But consider Aquarius' contradictory nature. If you're supposed to turn right, Mars in Aquarius might push you to turn left, just because. Are you breaking away from something that's outdated? Or are you just breaking away? If you run away from the pack (or the commitment/structure) solely as a knee-jerk reaction, you've come full circle. You're being controlled by what you're trying to escape.
This transit can help you carve a unique path, but only if you act consciously. Aquarius represents the edge of what's acceptable, or "normal"- beyond that is the future. The Aquarian future consists of ideals, and Mars in Aquarius can fuel this. But it can also keep you running towards a future than never manifests. Eventually, you have to put down roots.
