On August 20th, 2022, Mars ingressed in the sign of Gemini, bringing chaos to Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Sagittarius). We saw how this transit impacted communication on a collective level, especially the effects on social media and the corporate world. Now Mars will finally enter the sign of Cancer on March 25th, 2023, and remain there until May 20th, 2023, impacting Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn). Instead of pursuing and chasing after information, we are now going to have to learn to process our emotions to do the work within. Developing more emotional awareness in this transit is essential. It is a time to learn to let go of the past and move forward. Mars is in fall in this sign, so keeping our tempers in check is paramount. However, Saturn will be making a friendly trine aspect with Mars, helping us to be more in control and determined during the next several months. See how this transit impacts your rising, sun, and moon signs.
Your ruler, Mars, is entering a fellow Cardinal sign, which should bring the energy you enjoy. Things are fresh, new, but you have to control your temper. When Mars was in Gemini, the sextile to your sign made the transit flow easier, but now you must watch your tongue. You may feel irritable and combative, so make sure to meditate to bring that warrior energy down. Focus on doing what makes you happy to balance the effects of Mars.
Mars brings you inspiration, creativity, and motivation. The problem now will be not second-guessing yourself and cooperating with others. You could be much more social during this time, reconnecting with friends in person or through social media. Expressing yourself and your ideas during this transit is a lot easier. It is a time when you unveil some projects you may have been working on.
Now that Mars has moved away from your sign, you feel some relief. Mars will have you pushing to excel and generate more material wealth. You are driven during this time to succeed, especially with Saturn in Pisces giving you the focus to reach the top. It is a period when you plan and are more organized to get closer to your goals.
It could be a time when you feel much more comfortable with taking a break or working on your own. A wake-up call as Mars comes strong and ready to make war and help you join the battle. However, Saturn eases Mars, giving the fiery planet the determination to get success without aggressively moving forward for the first part of the transit. Through patience, you know you are here to win and claim victory for the next month.
Mars here has you analyzing and respecting your boundaries. Mars makes you selfish with your time. You are not giving everyone access to you. Home becomes a place where your inspiration is unlocked. You could achieve mastery with this transit, especially if you work for yourself. You see your skills and craft improve. Mars here tends to bottle up emotions. Make sure to meditate or do something that brings you joy when you feel overwhelmed.
It is a period when you will make fruitful and valuable connections. Mars pushes you to connect and be surrounded by people that continue to inspire and awaken your muse. You are very cooperative during this time, and with Saturn in Pisces, you could make powerful connections through networking with like-minded individuals.
An inspirational transit as Mars is at the peak of your chart. You are here to win and conquer. Although you could feel like a warrior, your need for balance allows you to discover your inner power. If you are in a leadership position (or assume one), you could expect others to respect your choices, since you can listen and focus on helping those you represent.
Devouring information could be synonymous with this transit. You are on the hunt to learn more and be more knowledgeable about subjects you are now interested in. It is a time of mental expansion and you have the energy, focus, drive, and determination to continue. If you are at the collegiate level, you could feel more connected to your studies.
Mars will finally move out of your house of relationships and onto new territory. It could feel like a rollercoaster ride with this transit as you do more of the much-needed inner work. Relationships now could feel more fated, so it is best to take things slow and learn more about your partner before rushing in. To those in relationships, this transit can feel like you are moving the relationship to the next level.
It is a time to channel your emotions because you could get a little explosive. Nevertheless, this transit is all about motivation and finding new ways to channel this energy efficiently. Mars wants you to be the star of the show, but you need to learn to cooperate with others. Make sure not to be too impulsive during this time and take it slow.
With this transit, you will learn how to work smarter. Mars wants you to be efficient and not stress yourself out. You are here to prevail and conquer your goals, but doing it with much more planning leads to better production and output. There is also a focus on taking better care of yourself, so you may be motivated to go to the gym or begin a new workout routine.
This transit will make a trine to your sign, so you are more receptive to this energy. Mars sparks your creative side and need for comfort and valuable connections. Mars in Cancer prepares you to look at yourself through more confident eyes. It is a time to believe in yourself, put yourself first, and value all that you do.
