  5. Mars in Capricorn Can...



When Mars is exalted, Mars is on fire. Fortunately, in a very good sense.

In fact, in Vedic astrology exaltation means a special placement in which a planet can perform at its best.

Mars will be staying in Capricorn, its sign of exaltation, from May 2 to November 5—a very long time if you think that Mars usually changes signs about every 45 days.

Mars’ Gifts to You

  • Strength
  • Courage
  • Discipline
  • Action
  • Determination
  • Victory

Often the above is all we need to succeed in our work, career and finances.

Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, grants you long-term vision, forces you into longer working hours, and can bring you material prosperity.

Saturn’s Gifts to You

  • Perseverance
  • Seriousness
  • Wisdom
  • Maturity
  • Lack of distractions

Usually without the above it’s impossible to achieve excellence or even fame.

Imagine, for example, a violinist who started a musical career thanks to much inborn talent. Yet after long years of rigorous training, this same person receives standing ovations and international acclaim thanks to absolutely impeccable performances.

So to achieve your material and spiritual goals, secure a promotion, buy the real estate of your dreams, land a lucrative job as a mechanical engineer (or any other field), and deliver your best performance in recent memory, here for you—some tips to make the next six months both memorable and profitable.

Strength Is a Key to Success

While Mars will be in Capricorn, the natural 10th house or arena of career achievements, you might begin thinking that wasting time is both unacceptable and a sin.

Collectively, Mars in Capricorn will bring us determination, and the capacity to take on hard, difficult work to achieve excellence.

Moreover, Mars and Saturn are considered malefic, tamasic planets that cause fear and stress. So you will likely avoid procrastination and instant gratification.

You will then be in a better position to achieve greatness both at work and in sports.

Dr. Pillai says that sacrifice is necessary to achieve anything of value. Mars in Capricorn can provide you with courage and self-control—tools to make you tougher and keep you going when the going gets tough.

So you will be able to position yourself for greatness.

A quantum sound—or mantra—to better connect with Mars and receive more strength and energy is OM MANGALAYA NAMAHA. You can recite it 108 times on Tuesdays to resonate with the best qualities of Mars in Capricorn—and succeed through tenacity and one-pointed focus.

Goal Setting Takes You to the Top

A study of Harvard students found that after graduation, those who were in the habit of writing their goals and a detailed plan were earning ten times as much as the remaining 97 percent of the students who didn’t.

So to succeed with Mars in Capricorn—you need to be very specific about your goals and write down how you plan to achieve them.

In terms of classical Vedic astrology—Mars and Saturn are respectively the commander in chief and the servant archetypes.

In fact, Mars goes all out by taking action, implementing, training and winning. Saturn, at a snail’s pace, uses wisdom, maturity and plain, hard work and it wins, too.

Try This

    • Manage Time
    • Write Goals
    • Write Your Plan
    • Implement
    • Take Timely Action
    • Don’t Give Up
    • Work a Bit Longer
    • Be Bold

 Words of Caution

When dealing with people, whether it’s coworkers, children, subordinates or partners, it’s important to remember that sweetness is still a requirement. In fact, when Mars is exalted, relationships require more tact and we need to avoid stampeding over others’ emotions and feelings.

So for best results at home and work, be gentle with feelings and strong in your daily routine.

To receive help in your material goals and secure happy relationships—you can sponsor a Fire Lab to Hanuman, the monkey-headed celestial archetype of great strength and righteousness.

Hanuman is one of the overlords of both Saturn and Mars. This Monkey God is also the epitome of loyalty and devotion.

The fire ritual or Fire Lab is considered the most powerful Vedic technology to receive miracles.
