The marathon runner…

    Mars is still OOB as it enters Capricorn, the sign of its exaltation, it will remain OOB until the 10th of February when it will be at 12° 43’ Capricorn.

    “Pure” Mars in Capricorn characteristics include ambition, discipline, persistent and even patience which is usually a feature not associated with this planet. On the harsher side it can show lack of empathy, recklessness as well as rigidity and inhibition as it sometimes struggles to contain itself.

    The OOB status brings out the best and the worst of Mar’s characteristics.

    During its stay in Capricorn it will meet up by aspect to the following planets:

    4th February sextile Jupiter (8°02’) – an opportunity to get ahead, business opportunities could just be around the corner

    8th February trine Uranus (11°00’): freedom from responsibility may beckon.

    16th February conjunct Venus (16°53’): sexual energies may be at the forefront but it’s also a very creative moment too

    23rd February sextile Neptune (22°12’): a little sensitivity may go a long way.

    3rd March conjunct Pluto (27°50’): me, me, me until someone gets in the way.

    As always you need to note the natal placement of Mars, the houses it rules (Scorpio is included here) and the aspects it makes and receives as well as the house (s) ruled by Capricorn where the planet is now transiting.

    A while ago, in another of my posts, someone commented that it would be interesting to see how the transiting planets affected people in their everyday life. Mars is the perfect planet to follow in this kind of experiment even if it’s not making any direct aspect to planets in your chart it is all the same transiting a certain house (or houses) and will affect the energy of that house and Mars is exalted in Capricorn too.

    Anyone willing to keep a diary for the next six weeks or so and exchange notes on how this Mars transit has impinged on your life?
