This Week In Astrology
by Ms. Cecelia Ann
Mars in Libra
This is a weak position for Mars because it's the opposite sign of Mars rulership Aries, so it is said to be in its detriment because it is not comfortable here and tends to operate with the least strength. This female may not have the fire of Aries, the combustion of Leo, but she has her ways. She moves with slow deliberation in all expenditures because just like her neighbor Virgo she wants to get it right. This is not to be a perfectionist, but she needs to be justified (balancing and weighing )in her decisions before she moves forward. She is, of course, attracted to a man with Libra qualities, he would be a refined gentleman pleasing to the eyes. He would have excellent taste in mannerisms, clothing, and a unique sense of style. This is a man she would enjoy going out wining, dining, shopping etc. as they both love being the toast of the town.
Mars in Scorpio
Our Sun sign placement will be amped with this position of Mars, Mars is very powerful here with Scorpio being its co-ruler. Just like Aries, you will find her in professions and positions of power normally held by men. When she decides what she wants to do , she has a powerful, stubborn, determination to get there come hell or high water. She is attracted to Scorpio type men with powerful yet sensual natures. Although quiet but authoritative he still manages to stand out from the others. Once these two look each other in the eyes a whole sensuous world flashes in their minds, things that make you go hmmm????
Mars in Sagittarius
Here we go a female with energy that's so positive, jovial, friendly and hot! ( yes not warm) trails are easy to blaze. Just like here opposite sign sister Gemini, communication skills are high in her endeavors to expand. Like the Archer himself, she packs a bag full of arrows, points her arrows to the sky and land where they may. She's always confident that one of them is going to land on a successful journey. And speaking of a journey, "have transportation will travel" for love, money, success or just to enjoy the great outdoors. I don't think you will find this sister in a home-based business unless she can yak yak on the phone/computer all day is helping her sell her products/business. Of course, attracted to men with Sagittarius lights, I'm reminded of lyrics from Aretha Franklin's "Daydreaming". "I want the kind of guy who can say Hey baby let's get away, let's go somewhere now, where I don't care"
Mars in Capricorn
Okay as written earlier another weak placement for Mars is in Cancer the opposing sign to Capricorn. The reason is that this is an Exalted placement, Mars is Exalted in Capricorn. Briefly, Exaltation represents the highest expression of a planet's energy while rulership is its most effective expression. Mars energy loves the strength, focus, and tunnel (climbing) vision, wrapped up in the total discipline that Capricorn exudes ALL the time. This position is going to accomplish "something" what will it be, whatever she decides. I've observed this placement in many females, I don't care if they're lost in alcoholic or drug addictions, they will be a "functional" one. So imagine what they can accomplish disciplined and focused. My lady will, of course, want to climb her mountain with a Fellow goat energy. She is attracted to the serious, disciplined, focused, Capricorn type gentlemen who enjoy the finest things in life and will graze the highest mountains to get there.
Mars in Aquarius
The woman with Mars Aquarius energy will be another communicator in reaching intended goals. She will also be a researcher and student and just like her air sign sister Libra and earth sign cousin Virgo energy is expended and journeys are taken after she "KNOW'S" (Aquarian key phase) the who, what, where, and when of it. Oftentimes you can see her energy put into things that will benefit humanity, the earth, animals, and children. Mars in Aquarius energy is expressed mostly in the mental realm like Mars in Gemini/Libra/and Virgo. Speech, speech, speech, speech doesn't just apply to men here, this is a great orator and rebel "with" a cause. She is attracted of course to the man with Aquarian planets, he'll be her friend before he becomes her lover. He will be the kind of man who is eager to listen to her causes and concerns intently, not just with the idea of getting in her pants, he will help her and be her greatest cheerleader. He will also be a humanitarian first and foremost, not afraid to think outside of the box and usually a mix of genius (especially in entrepreneurship) and good looks.
Mars in Pisces
Our Mars in Pisces female energy is a tad bit different than the other 11 signs, she operates from a spiritual viewpoint and ethereal place. The Muhammed Ali phase "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" would be a good betrayal of Mars/Pisces energy. Just because it isn't powerful like Scorpio, combustive like Aries, and determined like Capricorn doesn't mean it isn't effective, especially when you know how to use it. This female is tuned into all the energy surrounding her so she can pick up oh whichever vibe she chooses to "flow with". Yes, that's the Mars/Pisces theme, let's flow with this, or flow with that, let's not flow with this or that. On a low energy day she might not want to flow at all and remain a still water that day, oftentimes still waters run deep and she returns refreshed. No, she may not have the stamina of more powerful signs because her strength is her beauty, love, compassion, and forgiveness. You may lose focus on where she is coming from because she has a tendency to go with this flow, her energy is of an ethereal nature. This Mars placement may not be as focused "literally' like Capricorn, or "powerful" like Scorpio, but at the end of the day, she arrives at her destination, cool, calm, and collected. Of course, attraction to a man with a Pisces Sun, Moon and rising is almost a given and an intimacy that is deep like still water is often inevitable when they choose to go with the flow and vibe together. She is absolutely tinkled pink that she ran into a man with such a tender, warm, and loving soul.
