Our Pioneer has set the stage for Mercury and Saturn since 23 August, and now brings motivation and drive to where The Archer aims within the life throughout 16 November. Desires become impulsive here and endurance and stability must be cultivated in order to reap the rewards of finding the spontaneous energy that is meant to be mobilized. While frank, self-righteous and even at times defiant attitudes may be displayed, be sure to respond with optimism, enthusiasm, and aspiration to curtail the ego’s argumentative reactions. When speculative, exploratory, inspired, and swift methods are utilized to combat conflict here, this free-will’s response of courage is highly rewarded.

As we see such a penetrating planet as Mars journeying within the realms of the Mutable Fire Sign Sagittarius, you definitely want to check in with your personal piece of the Zodiac Pie to know where to expect actions to come at you that may need that necessary response of patience. Even though our Archer is a truly “happy sign,” when Mars is present within this area of the life, let’s just say the tendency to stimulate anger issues and unconsidered slapdash reactions are all too easy to surface. Tongues are caught more often than not in instantaneous blunt retorts, which may result in the tasting of the foot as well. (should make for a swell remainder of the USA’s debate season, don’t you think?) As always with Mars, rising up in COURAGE to CURE OUR EGO and CAGE OUR RAGE is the key to claiming our victory.

Mars -aside from his courage and fighting spirit- equally sees over sudden changes and endings within the life, so be sure to recognize what may be looking for release or brought to conclusions here. All kinds of momentous energies are on high alert. As Mars recently set the props in place for this historical time Scorpio, now he also will be giving you clues as to what is coming up to ponder in review under the next Mercury Retrograde passage beginning 06 November, (even more fun for the USA’s politician as this is also Election Day, can we say REcounts anyone?). Mars will reach 04 degrees within The Archer by 13 October, which is the very degree point our Messenger begins his journey of reflection upon.

As always, a little “quick guide” from above via the collective feel to take a peak down here below, as to where you can expect to experience Mars getting things sparked up and motivating while he visits with Sagittarius. Remember if you know your natal chart, read for your Rising Sign as well for more personal advice.

Mars enters Libra

The Virgin will definitely begin to take a deep sigh of relief as our Pioneer has finally moved on to bring drive and action within The Scales. Mars has been in a long passage -which included a Retrograde request for review- in Virgo since 10 November 2011. Now, he is ready to start motivating refined desires within Libra until 23 August.

A relaxed and more well-regulated energy will have the potential to unfold with this transit, as courteous and persuasive attitudes are easily influenced. What Father Saturn has been asking for you to learn within this sign the most comes into its’ intensity as he and Mars will conjunct at 24 degrees Libra upon 15 August. This will be a divine time to truly take up in seeing both sides of what emerges here. By allowing balance to persist, the outcome that can be made through the requirement of hard work, is assured to regulate the energies to unfold self-reliance we are meant to begin to depend upon.

As our Pioneer journeys with The Scales, the ability to compromise and the power of reaction are also equally stimulated. Even as this “fighter planet” typically prefers to make action happen, he is more than willing now to find co-operative methods to do so. You’ll also more than likely find, up until Venus moves forward into Cancer upon 08 August -just as Mercury will turn Direct- that your Gemini/Leo/Libra areas of your life have some interesting yet dynamically harmonious forms of flowing between them.
