Mars in Libra 2019

Excerpt from Patreon – I’m a little late to the Mars in Libra party but there’s still a month to go of this transit 🙂 

Mars enters Libra on October 4, 2019. This is a challenging placement for Mars as the Red Planet rules opposite sign Aries. Here, Mars is out of his depth, forced to comply, pushed to agree, encouraged to compromise. Normally Mars is a go after what you want and stuff the rest kinda guy – pushy, impulsive but also endlessly courageous and willing to stand up for what’s right. Mars is the last one standing, the one who will protect you at all costs, the one you want on your side in any battle.

But Libra is all about partnership, working together, relationships; nice social occasions, posh lunches in an equally post restaurant. Libra is all charm and Mars doesn’t know what to do with that! Yet still, when Mars learns the rules of the game here – and he is a fast learner – he quickly picks up on how to play.

Under this transit’s influence, we learn that doing it together is better than doing it alone; working together helps us to achieve our goals faster; win-win is better than win-lose. We’re motivated to find allies, confront problems with grace, work through conflicts through dialogue instead of fighting. Negatively, Mars here can be an iron fist in a velvet glove and passive aggression can become a problem.
