EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN CAPRICORN
Mars moved into the last section of Sagittarius this morning and is getting ready for Capricorn. Planets at the end of a sign are a bit weak and tired and this will particularly so April 30-May 2 so get more rest. Still Mars is now connected to the Sun through the nakshatra channel and the Sun is exalted so ambition, confidence and leadership are strong.
Mars moves into Capricorn on May 2nd and because it goes retrograde there June 26-August 27th, it spends six months in its sign of exaltation. May is the best month for this transit because of the connection with the exalted Sun through the Nakshatra Uttarashadha (Sagittarius 26.40-Capricorn 10). Action is quick and effective; stamina and higher energy are there for major tasks. Hard work will bring fruits and Martian charm can lead to landing key deals. Technical savy will prosper. For moveable signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, this creates a Ruchaka Yoga and brings out Mars highest qualities.
The problem is June, July and early August and September where Mars stays within 3 degrees of Ketu the entire month. Ketu will engulf Mars’ fiery spirit and become further engorged with passion. Ketu and Mars are deeply at odds in Capricorn, a business sign. Ketu wants to leave the world and discover the
Divine and in the business sign of Capricorn, and is uncomfortable with Capricorn’s need to face reality and be in the material world and wants to reject discipline and hard work.
The positive side of the transit is that Mars/Ketu can bring a strong quest for meditation, spiritual development and bring up wanderlust. It also supports intuition. Still facing the realities of living in the material world will continue to be forced upon one but Mars is determined to manifest his desires. So take the passion of both Mars and Ketu into the meditation room or the boardroom and
use that fire to move forward towards your victory!
Mars in Capricorn for May is very higher energy so you can get away with doing 3 times as much work and have the energy and Aries and Scorpio will benefit most but Capricorn will enjoy also. Exalted planets have too much gun and power and tend to blow over people with their force. Make sure to tone down your power as some people will not be able to handle it.
Exalted malefics become more powerful to do harm for certain rising signs so Capricorn rising may have more health issue related to too much fire or pitta and this may also impact Cancers and Leos because of the aspects. Virgo moons and rising signs may have challenges with children and investments and romance. Libras have to watch out for automotive or home accidents and Taurus will have to be careful with foreign travel and issues with father. Gemini rising or moon will have a difficult 8th house transit which may trigger marital separation, disputes around income, difficult health issues.
Remember transits are only 20% of prediction so it is always in context to your dasha cycles. If you are running a Mars period or sub-period, you will be impacted more by the transit.
