  5. Mars in Aries: 9...

aries mars

Have you been walking through molasses lately? If you answered yes, the culprit may be the recent position of Mars in Pisces with Ketu (the north lunar node). While Pisces is a good placement for both Mars and Ketu, their conjunction may lead to taking action toward spiritual enlightenment or instant liberation from the material world. So meditation or yoga may have been a priority for the last five weeks.

But if you are like most of us—making a living, desiring good health, a happy relationship and financial security, Ketu is not the best ally for any planet.

So here’s some great news: Mars is moving into Aries—from March 23rd to May 3rd—one of his favorite territories. Aries showcases Mars’ authentic qualities: courage, action, speed, assertiveness, lots of energy and strength. Anger too. However, because the malefic influences from Saturn and Ketu are no longer a problem, you can now implement your ideas and receive help—your decisions and follow-up actions will be infused with readily available energy. And, Mars in Aries will be powerful, albeit too hasty—so some words of caution are a must.

Below find nine easy ways to tap into the benefits of this planetary transit and avoid less desirable possibilities.

Get your project out into the world.

If you have been waiting for the perfect time to launch a product, start an endeavor—because this may be the best time. Renewed energy from Mars will take you to the finish line of success.

Send a business proposal.

Similarly, if you haven’t mustered enough courage for a work-related proposal, now you might see your hesitation disappear.

Start anew.

Red tape can bog us all down. But Mars may now speed up your actions for a refreshing new start and your new enterprises will be injected with youthful enthusiasm.


Watch the speedometer.

Behind the wheel, take it easy. Venus will be with Mars for the first two weeks of this transit. While Venus represents cars (especially luxury cars, which are usually faster), Mars is all about rushing and speed. So it’s more important than ever to buckle up and respect road regulations for safety. Mars also rules the police, and you want to avoid an encounter with the same.

Don’t rush into a new relationship.

Venus and Mars together usually get in trouble—arguments are guaranteed and attractions may not last. Not too mention that rushing into a decision now, while Saturn is also retrograde, can have long-term consequences.

Sign up for a competition.

If you have been dreaming of running a 5K race, a marathon, or participate in a sport competition, you will get Mars’ favor. You will experience more vigor.

Say goodbye to debts.

This red planet can help you get rid of your debts. So if this has been a problem for you, now you will get support. Chant to Mars’ overlord, Muruga, OM SHARAVANA BAVAYA NAMAHA (108 times on Tuesdays) for extra help in removing debts.

Buy your dream home.

Mars is also the planetary king of real estate—his energy will positively impact your choice.

Pacify the red-hot energy.

Since Mars can be just too active and youthful, you may need to placate its excess energy—chant his favorite sounds OM MANGALAYA NAMAHA 108 times on Tuesdays. You can also appeal to Hanuman, who is another overlord of Mars, with OM HANUMATE NAMAHA.

Enjoy the energies!
