It’s big news: Mars is changing signs on October 18th, and is going into Sagittarius. This move will give you a chance to make your principles and beliefs a reality. So be careful what you believe now.
On the one hand, Sagittarius is the most idealistic of the 12 signs. Its nature is almost entirely belief-based and religiously oriented. A desire to explore man-made law can make one pursue a career as a lawyer.
On the other hand, Mars is more interested in defending his beliefs and he loves implementing them into your daily life. He is a no-nonsense planet. If you challenge him you may live to regret it, as the celestial body of courage, self-discipline and action will go into a battle until he feels safe again.
But this is not a scenario for religious war—rather it is excellent news because Jupiter (Sagittarius’ expansive ruling planet) is now exalted and is about to escape the harsh glance of Saturn for the first time since June. And finally Jupiter, the planet of hope, inspiration, higher truth, wealth and children will be in the best position to help you in the above areas.
As an additional bonus, Sagittarius will also become free of Saturn’s aspect or influence—and for the first time in two and half years—those who have the ascendant, the Moon or other planets in this sign will take a deep breath of relief.
And the good news doesn’t end here. In fact, Mars and Jupiter are best friends. So you can expect the red planet of energy and drive to be happy as he helps you make decisions and apply your principles in your endeavors.
If you are wondering how you can use this transit to improve your life, find some easy steps and suggestions below.
It’s all red. Resonate with the vibrational frequency of Mars by wearing red-colored clothes. Red hues will give you an energy boost.
Expand your horizons. You will feel both optimistic and enthusiastic when you learn new philosophies thanks to the influence of Mars and Jupiter combined. You may also renew your spirit of adventure as you reach new pinnacles of knowledge or spirituality.
Say goodbye to caution. Mars in Scorpio has been serious and investigative, strong yet vengeful and swinging between courage and caution. But Mars in Sagittarius can be instead pretty fearless due to an optimistic outlook that will allow us to trust in the Divine Design.
Check your philosophy. At this time we must be extra careful and avoid stubbornness, one of the less desirable traits of Sagittarius. Moreover, we want to make sure we are not delving head first into a philosophical discussion that can turn into a fight. Make sure that you really mean what you say and turn your reactions to others’ opinions down a notch.
Enjoy the rituals. By doing a puja, an easy ritual to Mars, you’ll receive help to remodel your home, purchase your ideal house, or acquire the necessary discipline to stick to your spiritual practice. So, offer red flowers, a lit ghee lamp (or candle) and burning incense to an image of Mars. You can also visualize him as a strong and attractive male warrior donning red robes. Recite his special mantra, of sound waves to call on him: OM MANGALAYA NAMAHA 27 times.
Shape up military style. A ‘boot camp’ gym class at your local health club will help you get into shape before the end of the year’s holiday season. Mars will help stay limber yet strong also with a martial art practice based on Eastern philosophy.
Get into your asanas, or poses. Now more than ever, your yoga class will acquire meaning and purpose. You will want to learn more about the philosophical tradition from where your yoga practice originated.
Enjoy the energies!
