Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
You’re no slouch when it comes to being a warrior, which could make it difficult for you to sit quietly by with Mars, your Ruling planet, transiting your Sign. I know you don’t want to give in to the urge to fight just for the sake of it, so choose your battles wisely. You might find that marching for a good cause is the best way to spend your excess Martian energy.
Taurus April 20-May 20.
Rather than let Mars simmer as it spoils for battle but can’t quite find one that satisfies its appetite for engagement, make a list of the situations that have you most frustrated and figure out how to participate in a demonstration of your dissent. It goes without saying that you want to choose peaceful ways of protest—and protest you must if you’re going to manage Mars skillfully.
Gemini May 21-June 21
There are several community projects that would benefit from your contribution, so pay attention to your desire to make a difference and figure out how you can spend more time devoted to causes that matter to you. You may not see immediate results, but you’ll gain an increasing sense of purpose as your participation inspires others to make a difference.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Mars has focused its intensity on career issues, so much so that you might be doing battle with co-workers about what is whose responsibility. But this concentration on work could also raise issues with significant others, especially if they are feeling neglected. Rather than engage in tiffs over this and that, make an effort to let those you love know you love them as much—or more.
Leo July 23-August 22
You’re always willing to stand by your principles and passionately defend what you hold most valuable, and this is one of those times when your principles are being challenged almost everywhere. Find a way to staunchly hold your ground, but make it a point to be a peaceful warrior—there’s no need to harm your opponent and every reason to compassionately express your opinions.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Yes, you’re in the midst of huge transitions and it’s often overwhelming, leaving you frustrated and not always able to contain your anger. Find healthy, creative ways of spending that Martian energy. Try plate therapy—find ugly plates at garage sales and then smash them, or simply get a punching bag to alleviate your frustration. But whatever you do, don’t take it out on those you love.
Libra September 23-October 22
Significant others could mount a campaign to get you to complain and once you do, swoop down and give voice to their Martian defiance. Okay… everyone is entitled to a moment in court, but try not to get caught in a tit-for-tat exchange that is certain to exacerbate the tension. Find healthy ways to mediate the stress—meditate more, exercise more, and find a good therapist.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
You’re going to have to choose your words wisely, especially in conversations with co-workers who may not be all that interested in finding positive solutions to pressing problems. Nevertheless, you can be the light-bearer simply by acknowledging the gripes and allowing others to express their grievances without fear of judgment.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
You’re lucky—you can channel your Martian frustration into creative projects and while it might take time to see the fruits of your labor, you’re certain to gain a greater sense of confidence by transforming exasperation into vital self-expression. An elevator pitch isn’t necessary and neither is making a profit. Allowing your creative impulses to flow freely will help to heal your heart.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Yes, there is strife at home and yes, again, you are frustrated with your living situation—and that is regardless of whether you live alone, because Mars is so potent that it could make you hypersensitive even to the neighbors’ very quiet cat. Do your best to figure out healthy ways to manage your anger—it’s the best way to manage the bruhaha, inside and out.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
It’s frustrating when you can’t quite get the pieces of the puzzle to stay put—it doesn’t happen all that often, but when it does, it can really be a hassle trying to hold things together. It’s kinda what you’re going through day to day: there are so many things happening at once it’s difficult to hold it all together. Give yourself permission to let things fall apart, even for a moment, and you will feel much better.
Pisces February 19-March 20
You’re marching for what matters most to you and that willingness to take a stand is actually quite healing because it clarifies what your values are. Hold that banner high and don’t be dismayed if others criticize you—they have no idea how strong you are. Take as many deep breaths as you need to stay on course so that you can continue to fight for your principles.
