Mars enters Libra on October 4, 2019 at 12:21 am ET.
Mars is the ruler of Aries and in its opposite sign Libra, Mars is in its detriment and therefore has lowered potency.
Libra is the sign of relationships. With Venus in Libra for a few more days about to exit Libra, and Mars just entering, it’s like catching each others eyes with a look across the room. The male and female archetypes in the relationships sector indicates positive connections are possible.
Venus rules Libra and with Mars here it indicates relationships and the axiom of Make Love, Not War is more likely to be desired.
Since love is so important, motivation for a relationship to succeed is likely to lead efforts during this period. Compromises made for mutual benefit can lead to stronger bonds.
In any relationship, actions and behavior speaks volumes in bond. More people will be concerned with, “What can I do to make my life and your life better?” Libra prefers mutual benefit where there is a balance of giving and receiving. Charming qualities are well received in love.
To be motivated and driven by creating balance, fairness and equality in your life and in the lives of those you encounter can be very emotionally uplifting and freeing for all involved.
Masculine strength, handsomeness and charm are admired and an interest in male models and the beauty of the male physical form is enhanced with Mars in Libra.
Enthusiasm about arts can intrigue more people to try their hand at actively creating something of beauty. Styles that have more masculine features in fashion and design are also indicated.
Mars in Libra is geared more toward peaceful solutions and diplomacy, so more of us will be seeking peace and avoiding battles when possible. Where we see excesses of aggression, we can be turned off and want to move away from people that are not in line with more harmonious behavior.
Mars in Libra is not so overt about feelings of anger, we could see more people lean toward more passive aggressive attitudes rather than directly dealing with problems and confrontation head on. We may see more of a defensive, victimhood attitude is acquired by more people during this period.
The best use of Mars in Libra is to strive toward diplomacy and creating strategies that build bridges that make logical sense.
In issues of truth, justice and law we could see a stronger push for facts and accuracy with an objective view to assess what’s really happening on both sides of issues. Finding a middle ground that is fair and truthful is a priority for many. Mistrust can form where we see extremes, strong bias and irrational behavior, rather than honesty. Peaceful strategies are expected by rational people, and where this is not demonstrated by those in power, it can change people’s views.
Mars is in Libra until November 19, 2019.
