Red hot Mars, the warrior planet of assertive action and rising libidos stays in a single sign for just under two months, before charging forth to conquer its next new frontier.

Its planetary motion remains fighting forward the whole year long – Mars will not turn retrograde in 2019.

In Astrology (and in addition to what your personal birth chart 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 Leo, the fifth sign of the zodiac.

Under this astrology, the collective energy is loud, proud and full-on!

Confidence in Abundance

Expect to feel nothing of stepping up to take the stage in work and at play – Mars in Leo brings out our inner performer (as Leo people know full well!) lending a self-confidence that’s demonstrative, flashy and forthright. This is the time to make friends and influence people.

Similarly to other fire signs (stand up to be counted, Aries and Sagittarius!) this astrology can often express a strong-willed, competitive edge. You could find yourself in a race for a prize you didn’t even know there was (and determined to win none-the-less). Because that inner urge to be standing up there on that winner’s podium, gold medal around your neck, with hoards of other people gazing admiringly at you, is what almost always emerges under this sky.

Who doesn’t want to be the best!?

But that desire to triumph at all odds has an ugly side too. Arrogance, domination and an uncomfortably domineering edge are not uncommon traits of Mars in Leo. As a fixed sign (alongside Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius) being persuaded to entertain anybody else’s point of view could prove tricky. Those with less self-awareness could let their egos swell out of control – be careful it’s not you. Nobody likes a bossy boots.

You’re no fool!

You’ll likely feel at your most fulfilled under this sky making an impact that’s huge and heartfelt. Tokenistic gestures just won’t cut it, and if anyone tries to fob you off with anything less than authentic, you’ll see straight through it.

In love, your desire can take on gigantic proportions, with elaborate displays of affection and lavish gifts offered freely. And if you’re planning on getting lucky between the sheets, Mars in Leo will ensure the path to the pillow is paved with flowers, chocolates, dinner, and all the trappings of seduction that you can muster!
