Mars is currently in Aries and will be there for quite some time now. Sure, it might not feel much different just yet but as time continues to pass and other energies calm down this whole ordeal might be a bit much for some of us.
For those who may not be aware Mars is the planet of action. It is one that controls a lot within our lives and really breaks down the things we do as far as our initiative goes. The more you understand about Mars, the more you understand about yourself.
When Mars is in Aries we are offered some interesting energies and since Mars is currently in Aries and will be there for a long stay, we need to make ourselves more aware of the things we’re facing. This period in itself is one that should be full of growth and really breaking free. I know, that might sound broad but well, it is.
Tarot.com wrote as follows on what kind of things we should be aware of when Mars is in Aries:
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.
While we will be facing a retrograde soon, this retrograde won’t be mixing things up too badly. It will more or less bring us to a place where we all need to question our intentions. Of course, you may struggle with this some but if you are sure of yourself and the path you’re on, it won’t throw you off too bad.
Don’t be afraid of these energies, they are only here to help. You are going to do great things and using these energies to your advantage will help with that. This is all going to push you to grow so much more than you could ever imagine.
