On June 27, 2020 at 6:45pm PST/ 7:45pm MST/ 8:45pm CST/ 9:45pm EST, Mars will enter the bold and fiery sign of Aries. Mars is the planet that rules Aries, which means both of their energies are very similar and very in sync with one another. This isn’t a confusing time when you aren’t sure which way to turn — Mars in Aries is a time of great confidence, increased drive, and powerful beginnings!
Mars’ transit through Aries is an amazing time of initiation and activity! If there’s something you’ve been hesitant to start, Mars in Aries will help you finally get the ball rolling.
When Mars is in Aries
Mars is the planet of action, and when he’s in Aries, he’s on top of the world. He’s strong, independent, and fierce. There’s nothing — absolutely nothing — that will stand in his way, no matter what he wants to accomplish. Mars in Aries is always triumphant.
Fiery Aries is a Cardinal sign characterized by immediacy, activity, and pioneering, so Mars fits perfectly into this fast-paced environment. Because there is little resistance during Mars in Aries, it almost feels like our obstacles melt away. But it’s not like they’ve totally disappeared — we’re just too driven and confident to be daunted by them. Even though we’ll probably face these obstacles at some point down the road, that’s not the point of Mars in Aries. This transit is not about planning. It’s about moving forward, regardless of what may stand in our way later.
We’ll want to blaze trails, push ourselves, and tone our bodies and minds. We’ll be more likely to do things we’ve never done before during this transit. Mars and Aries are both about trying, not about winning. Success comes from participation rather than the conquest.
And while this incredible surge in energy can be beneficial, it can also become a challenge in our lives and relationships. Because we’re less concerned with consequences, impulsive behavior is likely. We may find that we experience more outbursts of anger, or that our direct approach rubs others the wrong way. Mars in Aries makes us all feel like “it’s my way or the highway,” which means we aren’t willing to meet others halfway. We could end up butting heads more frequently due to the aggressive energy in the air.
