Mars Cycles – Plan & Act

How you go about getting what you want is Mars energy. The way in which you assert yourself is the activity of Mars.

Assertiveness, anger, aggression are all attributed to Mars, as is war!  Mars is also connected work and physical energy and Mars contacts will often signify days where you feel particularly energetic. One really constructive use of Mars energy is to get physical, get your hands into earth, work out or walk. As Mars moves through your horoscope it will energise that house. It’s a call to action that provides the impetus for you to make change in that department of life. If you are experiencing blockages, it can give you the courage to move ahead, make decisions and express your individuality. However there are negative attributes of Mars where you can become argumentative and demanding so use Mars energy wisely.

We often see a predominant Mars in the charts of athletes and high achievers. Sometimes the challenge of Martian energy is to harness it in such a way that it is productive. This will depend on the placement of Mars in the horoscope and what connects with it (aspects). The effect of these interactions has the power to elevate or destroy.

The Mars cycle occurs approximately every 22 months.

The best use of this is to make a plan, do a stock take on where you headed and adjust your course if necessary. Mars is such an important planning tool. Mars will also have the same 22 month cycle to other planets and points in your horoscope which is most useful in timing the most beneficial time to move forward.

This cycle is so useful when looking at planning your life. Because this cycle is about taking action, it can be extremely useful when making longer term plans. For example you may want a job or  career change. Although you may want this  to occur quite quickly, it can take time to have all the elements in place for a smooth transition.  You will need to think about what knowledge, skills, or experience do need? You will need to identify any gaps and spend some time filling those gaps with the right levels of knowledge skills and experience. This can take time however it set you up for success and enable you to craft the career/job or life you desire.
