EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN CAPRICORN FEB. 5-MARCH 6TH
Mars moved into the last section of Sagittarius this morning and is getting ready for Capricorn into Feb. 5th. Planets at the end of a sign are a bit weak and tired and this will particularly be true Feb. 4th so get more rest. Still, Mars is now connected to the Sun through the Nakshatra channel and the Sun is stronger in Capricorn and wants to work hard for its goals.
Mars moves into Capricorn on Feb. 5th . 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 savvy will prosper. For moveable signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, this creates a Ruchaka Yoga and brings out Mars’s highest qualities.
Mars in Capricorn increases drive and ambition and allows for the completion of goals. People will have 3 times the normal energy and will stay up late and get things done
The Transit is not without affliction as Mars is conjunct Pluto on Feb. 17th which is a signature for earthquakes or ruthless power and ambition and Mars is conjunct Venus on Feb. 22nd so intense passion may develop with a partner and if it does not go well it could lead to a major fight.
Mercury is still in Capricorn until Feb. 19th and that may still promote verbal arguments and fights but they are spread more apart in degrees and in different nakshatras by Feb. 8th so there is not as much of a problem as late January.
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.
Mars in Capricorn for Feb is higher energy so you can get away with doing 3 times as much work and have the energy 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 harm certain rising signs so Capricorn rising may have more health issues 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 or 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, and 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.
