Mars moves through a sign in about two months time. He turns retrograde approximately once every two years, throwing a wrench in the works.
It’s possible for Mars to turn retrograde in one sign and then transit back into the previous sign. He’ll then turn direct and head back into the sign when he turned retrograde.
In situations like that, there is relief from the monotony of this transit. In this case, Mars is going into Libra on December 7th, turning retrograde in the sign, turning direct in the sign so we’ll have no relief from the monotony of this transit.
Now it doesn’t help that Mars is poorly placed in Libra. And I don’t need a lecture on the subject, I have Mars in Libra natally! I’m just saying, if you’re going to deal with Mars in a sign for the better part of a year, Libra is not the sign a thinking person would choose.
The reason is because Mars agitates whatever it’s involved with. In this case, we’re talking strife in relationship. Social anger.
Mars in Libra is widely recognized as passive-aggressive…a personality trait most people despise.
I am often accused of being rude and offensive, which is apparently my way. My choice is to be nice on the surface – ick – sputter – gag. Some choice, huh?
We’re all going to be dealing with such things so get ready!
Well, at it’s best, Mars in Libra is an effective negotiator. It can dress or decorate to win. People who suggest you “kill them with kindness” probably had Mars in Libra. Does this not sound like trouble?
It’s not going to help, that Mars will get involved in a Cardinal Grand Cross along with the Sun, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto, in 2014. Talk about bringing a trouble-maker into the mix. I’d pay attention to this.
With Mars transiting Libra, mixing it up with the outer planets, expect people to use social tactics to achieve their goals. I’m talking about people who befriend you in order to manipulate you. Facebook friends, for example.
It’s almost a challenge. “I can get ______ to do ______, with this little bit of sugar”
Ha ha ha ha!
The house where Mars is stuck for all these months, will be highly activated. Mars will be in my 9th house (publishing, teaching) with Mercury. I’ll be writing about this transit, that’s for sure.
What house in your chart it set to be hotted up through July, 2014?
