Mars in Scorpio


Mars enters Scorpio 30 October, 2021 at 7:21am PT, 10:21am ET. In Scorpio, Mars is extremely powerful.


Why “extremely powerful”?


Scorpio is a fixed water sign. Fixed signs “fixate” on things… and people. Water signs are emotional. So Mars can get a bit obsessive - there’s a concentration of energy here that we can use to get things done. A strong pull to assert ourselves in the material world. If, like me, you struggled with motivation when Mars travelled through Libra, that is about to change. I keep seeing a vision of a racing horse exploding out of the gate.


Anyway, whatever Mars’ latches onto during his transit through Scorpio is what is going to eat up your waking hours through November, so choose your obsession wisely. For clues, check which house is occupied by Scorpio in your natal chart. If it’s your 2nd house, you’ll have money on the brain and how to make more of it, if it’s your 6th house you’ll be working overtime and/or getting back on the treadmill…


Mars in Scorpio is ambitious and determined to prove his prowess (in and outside the bedroom). While we all want to feel like we matter and we’re important, this need is emphasized now. Watch that you don’t overcompensate for unconscious feelings of guilt or inadequacy.
