As we move through the rest of June we’re getting closer and closer to its end. However, just before June comes to an end on the 27th Mars moves into the sign Aries and that causes an energetic shift like no others.
During the time that Mars is present in the sign Aries, we’re all going to feel like things are getting too serious. When Mars is in Aries we’re more willing to let our impulsive side shine and this for many of us is a very bad thing. The more we allow our impulses to take over the less we get done overall and the further behind we find ourselves as surprising as that might seem.
When Mars is in Aries we tend to listen more to our intuitive side. We see things that need changed and work hard to change them all the while perhaps not looking in the right areas. We get very caught up in life and don’t realize that sometimes even we need breaks. I know, this might not sound like much but when it all packs on it can make a big difference in our lives.
The more you allow Aries and Mars to conflict with one another in your life the more confused you may find yourself being. This coming together is always a stressful period for us and can sometimes leave us wondering where to go from here. While you’re going to be facing a lot of new things, some of those new things are not worth your time.
Tarot.com wrote as follows on these energies:
Mars is the planet of action, and when he’s in Aries, he’s on top of the world. He’s strong, independent, and fierce. There’s nothing — absolutely nothing — that will stand in his way, no matter what he wants to accomplish. Mars in Aries is always triumphant.
Fiery Aries is a Cardinal sign characterized by immediacy, activity, and pioneering, so Mars fits perfectly into this fast-paced environment. Because there is little resistance during Mars in Aries, it almost feels like our obstacles melt away. But it’s not like they’ve totally disappeared — we’re just too driven and confident to be daunted by them. Even though we’ll probably face these obstacles at some point down the road, that’s not the point of Mars in Aries. This transit is not about planning. It’s about moving forward, regardless of what may stand in our way later.
We’ll want to blaze trails, push ourselves, and tone our bodies and minds. We’ll be more likely to do things we’ve never done before during this transit. Mars and Aries are both about trying, not about winning. Success comes from participation rather than the conquest.
And while this incredible surge in energy can be beneficial, it can also become a challenge in our lives and relationships. Because we’re less concerned with consequences, impulsive behavior is likely. We may find that we experience more outbursts of anger, or that our direct approach rubs others the wrong way. Mars in Aries makes us all feel like “it’s my way or the highway,” which means we aren’t willing to meet others halfway. We could end up butting heads more frequently due to the aggressive energy in the air.
Don’t get too caught up in the world around you right now, take breaks when you need them. Life will continue whether you’re standing still or running rampant. Don’t forget that your own well-being matters and sometimes stopping to smell the roses is a wonderful thing.
