Red hot Mars, the warrior planet of assertive action and rising libidos will stay in Aries until January 6, 2021 – before charging forth to conquer its next new frontier.

In Astrology (and in addition to what your personal Horoscope tells…) the 4th rock from the Sun activates our driving force, our motivation and fighting styles. This doesn’t mean its pistols at dawn every time Mars in town, but it does mean you’ll be pushed to find new ways to dominate and get what you want, according to where in the skies, this fiery front-runner lies.

In this collective horoscope, Mars charges through Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, which also happens to be Mars’ home patch.

Under this astrology, the collective energy is strong, driven and assertive.

Expect yourself to take on the role of leader as though you were born for it (which, of course, you were). Confident and eager to blaze ahead with new projects, any time you’re forced to wait, hold up and let somebody else take the reins will feel like torture. Mars in Aries doesn’t appreciate being told what to do.

Risky Business

Lending a wildly headstrong energy to the collective psyche, we’re all more likely to take risks and make impulsive moves under this sky (act now, think later). Mars’ rulership of Aries means that this go-getting energy rippling through your body could lead you head first into paradigm-shifting opportunities, or into convoluted messes… depending on how aligned you are with your heart versus your ego. So remember that under this astrology, even quick decisions needn’t be made unwisely.

Short Attention Span

Sustaining any projects you get involved in, with Mars moving through Aries, could be where it gets tricky. More than ready to leap head-first into the unknown (not too dissimilar from fellow fire-signs Leo and Sagittarius!) once things get a little predictable, and the initial excitement wares off, attention could start wandering.

This is the moment to call in reinforcements.

Collaboration with other people is not the strong-suit of Mars in Aries, but even under this astrology, sometimes you really can’t do it all yourself (and you really wouldn’t want to).

Keep Your Cool

Bad days could see a fiery temper flare – this astrological transit can see passions overspill into arguments, as that hot-blooded hostility and aggressive streak comes out to play. Cool yourself off with some fresh air, and channel that chi with some exercise. Or with the heightened libido that comes when Aries hosts its ruling planet, let some of that primal energy loose between the sheets instead!
