On Tuesday, July 3, Mars will finally leave Virgo for Libra after spending the last six and a half months there. I don’t know about you but I’m up for the change even knowing how irritating it will be when Mars conjoins my Moon in Libra. LOL
The shift from subtle, detail oriented, earthy Virgo to social, mental Libra will bring on a very different approach to the way we take action. Mars in Virgo has been very helpful for getting tasks done on time and efficiently, and whilst Mars in Libra has plenty of zip it tends to want to expend that in discussions rather that actual labor.
Mars in Libra is also far more argumentative and when the red planet runs into Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn in mid-July the proverbial sh*t will hit the fan. Adding fuel to the fire will be an expansive trine between Jupiter in Gemini and Mars in Libra. Words, words and more words! That same day, July 17, Mars will square Pluto in Capricorn before opposing Uranus in Aries the following day. Jupiter suggests philosophical differences may be at the core of the ensuing disagreements. May I suggest going into to this time zone with firmly established “agree to disagree” rules with various folks? Oh by the way, the New Moon in Cancer lands on July 18 AND Mercury in Leo is retrograde. Whoops!
If you have your Mars in one of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), Mars in Libra will be taking a poke at it over the next couple of months before it moves into Scorpio on August 23. Mars to Mars transits can rev up our energy levels and this is particularly true in the cardinal signs. Those of us with our Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus in Libra may not be so keen on keeping the peace when Mars crosses those planets. We might surprise our nearest and dearest with our feistiness!
After thinking about the ramifications of Mars being in Libra instead of patient Virgo, I do believe I have a greater appreciation for that helpful Mars. It has been very good at keeping me on task transiting my tenth house. Virgos though are likely more than ready for Mars to quit nagging them and start doing something about increasing their cash flow!© Copyright 2012 Diane L, All rights Reserved.
