Mars enters Scorpio
11th PDT 21:04 / 12th AEDT 15:04
Mars enters Scorpio today, where it will transit for the next six weeks, adding urgency to decisions and emotional exchanges. Mars last transited this sign between October 30 and December 13, 2021. Look back over these dates to draw personal parallels. What projects and pursuits were consuming your attention?
Mars is in domicile in the sign of the scorpion, a sign which typically conjures buzzwords like “provocation” and “power”. And to say that Mars in Scorpio provides us with the intuitive means to leverage our will would be an understatement. However, Mars’ primary motive here is not necessarily to assert dominance but to initiate transformation.
Overall, this impetus is productive and healing in nature. Yet Scorpio is the domain of the unconscious mind, and when we allow maligned or repressed aspects of our psyche to call the shots, conflict inevitably intensifies. Here, we plot. We scheme. We wait patiently to make our move with concentrated force and strategic finesse. While our opponent has been watching the plays, WE have been watching our opponent. And we may win the battle…but at what cost? Fear-based decisions yield fear-based results. Manipulation tactics ensure mutual destruction.
This influence’s POSITIVE potency lies in getting us up close and personal with unrelenting, inevitable change…and discovering our own authority in the process of deconstruction and reconstruction. Mars in Scorpio permits us to ditch unhealthy patterns and recommit to our passions. It encourages us to extricate ourselves from toxic situations. We can walk away from that which we once felt powerless to resist. Additionally, as the Aries North Node presently answers to Mars, the warrior planet will be playing a broader energetic role in the upcoming eclipses in Libra (14/15) and Taurus (28/29). Cord-cutting promises to be one of the month’s most potent spells, functioning, perhaps, as the dynamic conclusion to this year’s Venus retrograde drama.
