All the diversity, all the charm, and all the beauty of life are made up of light and shade.
― Leo Tolstoy
Today Mars changes sign from earth Virgo to Airy Libra, where it remains until Dec 10th. With Mars being one of the two traditional relationship planets, we are all likely to notice some shifts in our relationship life when it moves sign.
The first thing we are likely to feel is a sense of relief that Mars has moved on from the ‘critical’ 29’ Virgo which can feel uncomfortable, picky and self-critical. Plus, when Mars, the planet of self will, drive and sexual chemistry, moves into Libra, we are all likely to wake up to new relationship possibilities. This includes new ways of being in relationship with ourselves, as well as with others.
For anyone who would like an intimate relationship, Mars in Libra is an ideal time to flirt and date, particularly as Venus is already happily settled in Libra. There is an old fashioned charm about Mars in Libra, that helps to make even the most incompatible encounter seem pleasant!
Mars in Libra is an ideal time to socialize, make new friends and have fun times with existing friends, as our ability to compromise increases. It’s also a great time to address disagreements and/or issues that may have previously felt too challenging to talk about, with friends, family, significant other or work.
Within a few hours of Mars changing signs, the Sun moves out of Libra and joins Jupiter and Mercury in Scorpio. At first sight Libra and Scorpio energies are very different. Libra does its utmost to maintain civility and lightness, whilst Scorpio needs to plummet the primal depths. However when they are working well together, these two powerful relationship energies, can potentially offer passion and depth to any relationship we embark on at this time. The key is to recognize when to dance lightly and when to dive deeply.
You are more likely to resonate with Mars in Libra themes if your natal Sun, Moon, Venus or Mars are in Libra, Aries, Capricorn and/or Gemini, or if the Sun, Moon, Venus and/or Mars in your Midpoint Composite chart is in any of these signs. MG
