Lightening Your Emotional Load
Seeing Future Possibilities
Being Honest about Your Past
Choosing Your Confrontations Wisely
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 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 may end up in conflicts with others at this time. Actions from the past may come back to bite you, people who you have previously wronged may reappear with their resentments in tow, and the consequences of past excesses may now arrive at your door to collect their debt. When such moments occur, being honest about your wrongs is essential. A heavy conscience is too big a weight to be carrying around, so face the facts of what happened, forgive yourself, and you’ll carry yourself through life lighter and more free.
Regrets of opportunities you failed to take and decisions you refused to make may hit you. It’s important to not lie to yourself about the lost potential, but also to not get too hung up on it either. The lessons you learn from the past are the important thing, and if you want to see opportunities in the future, you’ll need to be living in the present.
Anyone trying to control you during this transit won’t get very far, as you’ll have a defiant edge to your personality. You’ll feel like proving yourself to others and won’t be afraid of confrontation. You’ll be competitive, but be careful what battles you choose to fight. There are some that will, at best, only give you a pyrrhic victory.
