Mars in Scorpio
On January 16th, Mars entered Scorpio. Scorpio is one of the two signs that Mars owns, so it will have great power there. Since Scorpio is a sign of power, change, transformation, andmetamorphosis, t
his is a very dynamic transit, and a good one for producing positive change in various areas of life.
For the world, it is likely that this transit won't be on its best behavior, since Mars is headed for a conjunction with Saturn after it leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on March 7th. So it is possible that there could be an increase in power struggles in world politics that set the stage for greater conflicts in the period from March - September.
On the personal level, however, this transit can be quite beneficial. It will change, improve and expand the areas of life that areconnected with the house that Scorpio signifies in your horoscope. Here is a brief description of some of the ways in which Mars in Scorpio could affect you. The descriptions given below are based on the Vedic Sun Signs. Remember to read the birth dates for each of the Signs carefully, since we are using a sidereal zodiac. If you happen to know your Lagna (Ascendant) Moon sign, or Arudha Lagna sign, then you can read the predictions given for those signs as well.
