A Will of Steel: Mars in Scorpio

A Will of Steel: Mars in Scorpio

The ultimate cosmic backbone

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of scorpio, mars, blogs, astrology

One of the qualities that simultaneously impresses and frustrates me most about my son Vincent is his indomitable will. As his Taurus Sun mother, I am constantly irritated when I want him to do something and he doesn’t want to. He’ll never listen unless HE makes the choice for himself.

The battle of control between us began the moment he came into this world. He was born with survival instinct. Perhaps, on some level, his soul was born angry because he lost his very first power struggle. It’s like his soul had second thoughts about coming into this life at the last minute — he almost died during childbirth. Thankfully, an emergency C-section and the swift actions of my Obstetrician didn’t allow that to happen. His soul was meant to be born. From that day forward, he was forced to thrive and survive. Vincent’s soul decided he’d get the last laugh of course. He figured if he had to be here, he would only do this lifetime on his own terms. He’d teach us alright!

While it makes for parenting a child I can never regulate, fortunately, as he gets older (fifteen in August!) I am seeing this remarkable determination and willpower direct itself more and more in a positive way. The rest of the world might never be able to control Vincent, but as long as it’s on his terms the power of his self-control is truly astounding!

The 8th house

Born with Mars in Scorpio in the 8th House of Deep Power on his chart, it’s no surprise. Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio (before Pluto was discovered) and is now considered the co-ruler of this sign. Scorpio naturally corresponds to the 8th house of the natural zodiac which means he’s “at home” in this part of the chart.

In a nutshell, having Mars in Scorpio in the 8th house becomes an extraordinary placement. Strong. Deep. Fierce. Mysterious. Dangerous … until the native learns how to balance his power with his equally strong capacity for discipline.

Mars in Scorpio

From July 25 until September 13 Mars in the sky will tour Scorpio and that means for all of us, the drive to control and transform something in our lives through our sheer willpower will be extremely dynamic. Mars in Scorpio is NEVER afraid to explore the darker side. The side that can sometimes plummet you straight into dangerously vulnerable territory. In fact, this is where Mars in Scorpio is most at home. That’s why this transit may prompt you to explore anything dark, hidden, or mysterious. Through deep psychological self-examination, you’ll have the power to take yourself to hell and back if you choose to do so. This is the only road leading to transformation anyway so it’ll be worth the journey. The good news? Mars in Scorpio is not afraid of this. He welcomes it.

Dramatic Change

Isn’t this a dramatic change from Mars in Libra? Mars was in this sign since December 2013 — a long time for Mars to be in a sign he isn’t comfortable in! We all felt it. Mars wants to plow ahead and conquer but Libra forced Mars to collaborate instead. Many lessons were learned in the relationship dynamic during this time but on a personal level so many of us felt stuck…like we didn’t have an ability to forge ahead freely in a certain area of life. We didn’t.

Until now.

Whew! Finally, with Mars in Scorpio the power of our drive and ambition can be unleashed. Mars is no longer motivated to compromise or even consider what anyone else has to say about his actions. With Mars in Scorpio in fact, no one else is in charge except for you. No one can control your actions and if they try — oh boy watch out! The sting of Mars in Scorpio hurts like no other.

Mars in Scorpio is an opportunity to enter boot camp that will help you develop the power of your soul relating to the house it transits through in your chart. As long as you choose to rise above the shadow (power struggles, revenge, bitterness, and unforgiving attitude) you have an opportunity to master a part of your world with courage, discipline and will power.

Ahhh, Mars in Scorpio. The ultimate cosmic backbone.

Planet Tracker: Moon in Scorpio, Aug. 2 to Aug. 5

Planet Tracker

Moon in Scorpio

Aug 2, 2014 to Aug 5, 2014

 

I’ve heard that two rutting elk can lock horns for over a day. Of course, humans in a power struggle can easily exceed that, especially during Scorpio’s Moon. Power issues are raised. But what’s likely hidden is the truth about where that power lies. One opponent overthrows another, hoping to capture power. But is it really there? That’s the contemplation this Moontime. Here’s a clue: there’s a treasure house full of the good stuff, just like the fairy tales always said. And you don’t have to steal or envy the ones who seem to have it. All you need is to find your personal key. This Moon says, “Let your intuition lead.” If you’re stuck on something, visualize whatever you’re holding onto eighty years from now. Impermanence seems scary. But like an old snakeskin, after a loss comes something vibrant and new. Celebrate yourself as a passionate, evolving being.

Planet Tracker for July 26th: Mars In Scorpio July 25 – Sept. 13

Planet Tracker

Mars in Scorpio

Jul 25, 2014 to Sep 13, 2014

 

Mars is very much at home in Scorpio. According to traditional astrology, Mars is the ruler, or key planet, of Scorpio (and Aries, as well). It shares an affinity with this sign, so it can work very efficiently here. Scorpio’s about getting to the bottom of things so that they can be completely transformed. Warrior Mars is made to stimulate and provoke change.

There’s intensity and passion during this cycle. Tenaciousness is common with action-oriented Mars in this fixed sign. The positive is the ability to persevere and work through difficult challenges. In fact, it’s been said that Mars in Scorpio doesn’t like doing things the easy way. Resistance (to a degree) is just another obstacle to test Mars’ power here.

Fiery Mars in watery Scorpio has a less attractive feature that can be expressed as unrelenting aggressiveness or anger. This can be either overt or hidden, but will prolong conflicts and be destructive to relationships. The trick here is aiming carefully when selecting which walls you want to tear down. Taking on projects that require passion and intensity helps to direct Mars in Scorpio energy constructively.

Mars and Scorpio share a strong relationship with sexuality that can raise like to lust and transform nice into naughty. Of course, healthy sexuality not only encourages intimacy, but directs passion in a most delightful way.

Mars in Scorpio intensity and life-changing issues were part of the work of musicians Kurt Cobain, K.D. Lang, Harry Chapin and Jimi Hendrix. World class athletes born with Mars in Scorpio include Reggie Miller, Scottie Pippen, Bobby Hull and Deion Sanders.

Sexual themes have been important for Mars in Scorpios Robert Mapplethorpe, Larry Flint, Charlie Sheen, Margaret Trudeau and Chloe Sevigne. Dancing with death and life’s shadowy issues has marked the lives of Carlos Castaneda, Martin Scorsese and Bruce Lee. Tragedy has played a prominent role in the lives of Robert and Caroline Kennedy, both born with Mars in Scorpio, but he with stereotypical intensity and she with apparent restraint.

Among the many powerful women born with Mars in Scorpio are Oprah Winfrey, Susan Sarandon, Geraldine Ferraro, Anne Bancroft, Princess Grace and Ursula Le Guin. Performers Leonardo DiCaprio, Mel Gibson, Isabella Rossellini, Jeremy Irons, Danny Devito, Jon Voight and Bill Cosby also have this combination in their charts. The positive healing properties of Mars in Scorpio have contributed greatly to the success of Deepak Chopra.

Overview of Your Weekend Love Horoscopes for July 25 – 27

Weekend Love Horoscope

July 25-27: Intense Pleasure

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of love, horoscopes, astrology

Mars will change signs, moving into Scorpio late Friday evening. This will enhance your libido, and give you the courage to explore your more erotic side — including any forbidden urges you may have. While you might never act on these cravings, you will surely feel the desire to explore them. Either way, you’ll be discreet about it. Scorpio doesn’t like an audience.

In contrast, however, Leo does love attention. On Saturday, the Moon will enter party-time Leo, and it will become a New Moon by early evening. This will set the stage for plenty of emotional drama, as you are determined to pursue pleasure to the fullest degree possible.

You and your lover will have the chance to enjoy whatever brings you the most joy together. Attend a party, go to a casino, or take in a concert or show. Because Leo is the sign connected to romance, it’s possible you’ll meet someone new and find yourself falling madly in love fast. Love is grand this weekend, and the potential to physically enjoy every moment of it is equally outstanding. Make the most of it!

Mars in Scorpio

Watch out while fiery Mars is in scorching Scorpio

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of scorpio, mars, astrology

Things are getting intense, and it’s going to be even more so when action planet Mars moves into dark, mysterious Scorpio on July 25, 2014.

Mars is actually very much at home in Scorpio. According to traditional Astrology, Mars is the ruler, or key planet, of Scorpio (and Aries, too). It shares an affinity with this sign, so it can work very efficiently here.

Scorpio is about getting to the bottom of things so that they can be completely transformed, and warrior Mars is made to stimulate and provoke change.

There’s intensity and passion during this cycle — it’s quite a sexy transit, in fact. Mars and Scorpio share a strong relationship with sexuality that can raise like to lust and transform nice into naughty!

When Mars is in Scorpio, attitudes and actions become intense, powerful, willful and transforming. People can be aggressive, controlling and possessive, but they’re also capable of great endurance.

This tenaciousness is common with action-oriented Mars in this fixed sign. The positive to that is the ability to persevere and work through difficult challenges. In fact, it’s been said that Mars in Scorpio doesn’t like doing things the easy way. Resistance (to a degree) is just another obstacle to test Mars’ power here.

The downside is that fiery Mars in watery Scorpio can express energy as unrelenting aggressiveness or anger. This can be either overt or hidden, but it will prolong conflicts and be destructive to relationships.

The trick here is aiming carefully when selecting which walls you want to tear down. Taking on projects that require passion and intensity helps to direct Mars in Scorpio energy constructively.

What Do The Planets Have In Store for You for July 20 – 26

Weekly Astrology: July 20-26, 2014

Damn that planetary traffic jam!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of new moon, leo, astrology
Planets are colliding every which way this week! Retrograde, direct, ingresses and lunations — oh my!

Sunday, July 20: Saturn Direct in Scorpio

On Sunday, Saturn turns direct in Scorpio after having been retrograde for several months. You can expect forward movement in professional matters now, as Saturn is naturally connected to business and career.

Monday, July 21: Uranus Retrograde 

Then, on Monday, Uranus turns retrograde and will remain in this phase for several months. During this time you may notice your urge for freedom and individuation pressing you to make a change. Ready or not, here it comes!

Tuesday, July 22: Mercury in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn; Sun in Leo

On Tuesday, Mercury in Cancer will oppose Pluto, reinforcing the mantra “knowledge is power.” Indeed, you may discover potent information on this day that has deep ramifications in a domestic or career matter. Also on Tuesday, the Sun will enter Leo, allowing all of us to shine a bright light on the pursuit of pleasure. 

Thursday, July 24: Venus in Cancer trine Neptune; Sun conjunct Jupiter; Mercury in Cancer square Uranus; Mercury trine Saturn

On Thursday, it might feel like there’s a planetary traffic jam. First, Venus in Cancer will trine Neptune, allowing unconditional love to flow. The Sun will also conjunct Jupiter, opening the door for a lucky break in a creative endeavor, your love life or relationship with a child.

On this day, Mercury in Cancer will also go from squaring Uranus to trining Saturn. If you put your foot in your mouth, you’ll definitely be able to “save” yourself from any communication fail. 

Friday, July 25: Mars enters Scorpio (Until 9/13)

On Friday, Mars will enter Scorpio, where he remains until September 13. This once-in-two-year transit will set the stage for you to connect with the depths of your personal power. Will and determination will be strong, and once you decide to do something, nothing — and no one — will steer you off course. 

Saturday, July 26: New Moon in Leo

Last but not least, on Saturday there will be a delightful New Moon in Leo that is doubly-blessed, thanks to Jupiter also being in the same sign. Expect a fresh start in romance or your creative drive. Cultivate a new hobby and live life through the eyes of a child. Carefree is where you’re meant to be!

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Wednesday, June 11

Stop, look and listen! Between now and Saturday June 14, the cosmos is beginning to resemble some of those four-fold sequences of days (like April 13 — 16 and April 20 — 23) when there was a whole lot of celestial shaking going on that penetrated into our material realm with a vengeance. Venus making a subtle and yet still supportive, 30-degree rapport with Uranus (6:56AM) may only cough up a couple of surprises coming out of left field as the Moon remains void in Scorpio until bright and fiery Sagittarius takes over the lunar kingdom at 8:24AM. The transfer of Moon power every month from Scorpio to Sagittarius is an eye-opener, and often allows highly intense feelings to dissipate — allowing high-flying ideas to rule the roost for the next two days. Sagittarius Moon often equates with a golden opportunity to reach key literary, publishing or educational goals with a one-pointed tenacity. Athletics, fun, and games are in the spotlight. However, some brooding and potentially chaotic alignments try to upset the psychic environment as Venus makes a contra-parallel with Saturn (11:53AM) while Jupiter provokes super-sensitive Neptune via an abrasive, 135-degree link (1:13PM). Add these two challenging sky patterns to a run-of-the-mill Moon square to Neptune (9:13PM) and you can see that scattered, unreliable heavenly forces are suddenly in the catbird seat. Do your best to keep preparing for tomorrow’s potent Full Moon. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
