Mars enters Capricorn January 24, 2022

Mars officially enters Capricorn on January 24, 2022 at 7:52 am ET until March 6, 2022.

The last time Mars was in Capricorn was February to the end of March 2020 and we know what started happening at that time.

We can use the Mars energy positively to have the power to go after our goals and ambitions, and tap into those leadership qualities for our careers and in business. We can use the positive aspects of Mars like initiation, drive, ambition and athletic, goal oriented focus and determination to achieve great results. Here we can push ourselves hard to create powerful changes in our lives.

Mars rules Aries and Scorpio. With Aries, Mars is more about the enthusiastic athlete, initiator and is about self assertion, while with Scorpio Mars is more like survival instincts, anxieties, fears, psychological roots of behavior, and demonstrations of sexuality.

As the warrior, Mars is generally considered a malefic planet, and can be destructive and forceful in achieving goals. Considering Mercury is going Retrograde also entering Capricorn we are likely to see some challenges and battles during this period. It would not be surprising if Mars in Capricorn is going to be a big, dramatic, over the top, aggressive period. 

With the high energy, drive, determination and warrior energy of Mars and Mercury Retrograde being the trickster, messing with communications and interpretations, we could see an extra dose of tension and stress when things are not working out as wished. Mars can have a rushed energy so we can have more impatience accomplishing goals, feel like we are running out of time and get easily annoyed by obstacles that are slowing you down from making progress.

Since a lot of people can let their emotions get the best of them, or haven’t developed a high level of emotional intelligence to work with and therefore their ego gets in their way when dealing with situations and people, it inevitably means the lower quality of an aggressive, dominating, forceful, unrelenting, narcissistic, self serving approach can take over creating division between people. 

The potential for arguments and battles over politics is likely so if you don’t want to create an escalating, emotionally charged kerfuffle, it would be wise to muster the strength and willpower to bite your tongue and walk away. 

Saying no can be one of the strongest things anyone could ever do.

Communicating with higher ups, leaders, bosses, head honchos in business or dealing with bureaucratic rules could be difficult or test your patience.

With Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn we could see added confusion, mixed messages and communication issues, and we could certainly see an escalation of frustration which could possibly turn into fury for some. 

We could see an increase in anxiety when things get complicated or aren’t working out as we had hoped.


“Power attracts the worst and corrupts the best.” -Edward Abbey.

Battling big egos of those at the top are likely to be on full display. We’ve all known there has been corruption in politics for ages, and the fact that it’s becoming so obvious and undeniable in so many ways is actually a good thing overall. By seeing what’s going on instead of dismissing things and brushing them under the rug and by admitting there is corruption, we are more willing and able to root it out and get rid of it.  

With Mercury and Venus both in Capricorn as well, more focus on money and the markets is likely. Economically we could see big swings, fear or tensions that affect the financial markets – Mars and Pluto both rule Scorpio which can indicate aggressive moves in the banking industry and secrets revealed about what goes on behind the scenes with big money. We could see more talk of trade wars and their effects. We may also see more examples of crime and high crimes during this period.

With strong egos we could see displays of narcissism, and perhaps even violent actions, aggression and rage.

Pluto is considered the higher octave of Mars and Pluto and Mars together could indicate extremes, and we might see a war signal, a death or significant event that leads to major shifts in the realm of politics and business. Heated political battles could lead to significant transformation. As celebrities are also signified in Capricorn, we may see intense shifts in the circle of famous people at the top.

It also wouldn’t be surprising to see talk of sexually aggressive behavior regarding famous people, impacting reputations of those in the political spotlight and media. We could also see the ending of a high profile career, or dark secrets and transgressions come out possibly damaging the reputations of famous people.

Pluto is also highly conspiracy related, especially in Capricorn where it digs up dirt of what’s going on behind the scenes of those in rich and powerful position.

“Conspiracy Theories” could become Conspiracy Facts, as people that usually deny and dismiss the possibility of corruption in high places in politics and business, change their tune and realize that the rich and powerful actually can be corrupt.
