Transit Aspects

Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation

Mars Transits

Mars is the planet of energy and action. No Mars, no activity. It is also the planet of anger and violence. Mars doesn't care if the energy is used for work or a fight. As long as there is action.

You will feel somewhat irritable at this time, and this can lead to you getting you involved in arguments with colleagues and strangers. Small issues will escalate these arguments into far more angry confrontations, unless you’re aware of the role your internal turmoil is playing. If you stay self-aware, you’ll get on with people better and avoid impulsive actions that create problems further down the road.
You should also have a lot of mental energy to get things done at this time. Your energy is high in general, but it would be good to give your mind challenges beyond what it normally gets. You’ll also respond well to taking breaks with some purely physical work.
It’s a great time to learn, particularly by taking in information from multiple sources. You’ll feel good at evaluating it and establishing your opinions amidst many others.
You’ll be able to express yourself well, and giving yourself communication-related projects will channel the best of your strengths. Just be careful that you do just as much listening as speaking. There’s a tendency at this time to get in people’s face with what you want to say. Stubbornness never convinced anyone of anything, so as you hold forth, hold back from getting too entrenched in your views.
