While fierce Mars moves through the brilliant sign of Aquarius, we’re eager to fight for our freedom, our individuality, and our community! Aquarius is a sign that marches to its own beat, and we simply won’t allow our ideas and ambitions to be silenced or shoved aside during this transit.
Mars in Aquarius is a time to revolutionize our way of doing things. It blesses us with magnificent visions to improve not only our daily lives, but society as a whole. Our minds are clear and we are free to think and act in whatever way is needed. We can see a better future, and the steps we must take in order to reach it.
When Mars is in Aquarius
Mars’ transit through Aquarius is a time to stand up for our rights and fight for change. Aquarius is a detached sign that doesn’t typically get too fired up, but Mars’ warrior-like presence here adds the fuel that is normally lacking and encourages us to champion our ideas and ideals. We are fighting for our freedoms, but we aren’t using our fists — with Mars in Aquarius, our minds are our greatest weapons.
Strength lies in fresh ideas and original plans during this transit. Traditional ways of thinking will only lead to more of the same — Mars in Aquarius is a time to identify what we want the future to look like, and to take active steps toward it. It’s not just about thinking outside the box, it’s about completely forgetting about the box. The only way to make things radically different is to act in radical ways.
Injustices and societal problems are impossible to ignore while Mars is in Aquarius. Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac, and is especially concerned with what’s happening to the underdog. While Mars is firing up this sign, we can clearly see what needs to change and how. We can see not just the problems, but the solutions. There’s a powerful opportunity for reformation and revolution during this transit that we don’t always have available to us.
It’s hard to follow anyone else’s rules while Mars moves through free-thinking Aquarius. And who would want to?! Mars in Aquarius is a rebel who shoves aside traditional ways of doing things for a more original approach. We’re all capable of brilliance if we allow ourselves to disconnect from our typical patterns and feelings to embrace a brand-new, totally different way of doing things. It’s about liberating ourselves and growing into our own, bit by bit.
If you were born with Mars in Aquarius
People born with their Mars in Aquarius are blessed with powerful minds and an insatiable need for freedom. You have an original way of thinking and doing things that opens opportunities and solutions where others see none. You like to surprise others — the second someone thinks they have you pegged, you’ll switch up your game. This open way of moving through the world helps you realize that nothing is permanent and there is always, always room for change and improvement.
People are very important to you. While you are an independent thinker, you thrive in group settings and know that there is strength in numbers. Aligning yourself with like-minded people not only builds your friendship circle, but it adds power to your ideas and support for the actions you want to take. It’s hard for you to connect with someone if you’re not on the same page. Your closest friends and lovers are the ones who think like you do.
You are connected to your community, and believe that every person deserves equal rights and opportunities. You will not stand for inequality. Instead of striving for what’s best for you in the moment, you focus on the future and what’s best for everyone.
If there’s one thing that makes you feel confined, it’s conforming — you are far too unique and brilliant to be stifled by anyone else’s limited way of doing things. Your mind is your most powerful asset, and you can’t stand to follow the rules. You think differently than others, making you both a visionary and a leader.
The Wisdom of Buddha
However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
You were caught doing or saying something you weren’t supposed to. It is now coming back to haunt you. The number 22 highlights consideration and selflessness, but you have been working against this energy. You seem to have something to say about everything and everyone, but are not thinking enough about the consequences. You are only thinking of yourself because others have hurt you. This may be a time to start singing – literally. There are sad songs articulating your feelings. Let them be your therapy. Once you start getting tired of those songs – and you will – start singing songs that celebrate life.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today
Venus represents those qualities we commonly associate with the female/yin persona. Venus traits include fertility and the drive to create, unblemished beauty, love, passion, and togetherness. The occurrence of Venus denotes the dominating presence or need of the qualities listed above. While often very subtle, Venetian influences may have a negative impact unless they are balanced with an influence that can temper the drive of Venus.
As a daily card, Venus suggest you should allow your more feminine traits to guide your actions through this period. Subtlety, efforts to bring people together and allowing your creativity to run free are likely to serve you well at this time. However, like Mars, the powers of Venus are very strong and can do more damage than good if not balanced by other influences.

Has someone promised too much and delivered little lately? If so, that someone lacks integrity. Promises that aren’t kept erode trust and trust is critical. You can’t ignore the fact that their actions do not match their words. The first caveat is to avoid being seduced by what someone is saying as they talk their way into your emotions. The second, and the advice now, is to step back and analyze the situation.
