Mars enters Capricorn September 27. This is the first time in 9 months Mars has been in a sign other than Scorpio or Sagittarius, due to the spring retrograde of Mars this year.
Mars in Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Capricorn is not a light hearted sign. Mars in this sign is concerned with business, priorities, and finding or achieving value, and most of all stability on some level.
Mars rules energy, men, sex, action and our drive. Our day to day actions and priorities are colored by the sign Mars is transiting through at any given time.
Saturn, the ruler of this sign shows us our boundaries and limitations. While Capricorn is associated with Saturn and can at times relate to austerity, Capricorn can also be rich, warm and enduring.
As Mars moves through Capricorn it will form several Cardinal squares with other transiting planets in Libra and this will create friction when they occur. I will write more about this in the October newsletter.
If you were born under the sign of Capricorn or are a Capricorn ascendant, expect to become very busy during this time, and this begins a new two year cycle for you.
Mars will remain in Capricorn until November 9, when it moves into Aquarius.
