While Mars is in Scorpio, and depending on how this influence affects your natal chart, you’ve got the willpower and stamina to do whatever you set your mind to. Once you dig in, you’re willing to work extremely hard to reach your goals, overcoming any obstacle that gets in your way. You’ve got the strength and persistence to make deep and lasting changes now, so get clear about what you want and go for it!
With an incredible intensity of focus, you cut through superficial layers to get to the core or root of any situation, not satisfied with merely treating the symptoms. You might find yourself taking things apart just to see how they work, and you might also do this on an emotional level, deconstructing people’s words and actions to uncover their hidden motivations and desires.
Your passion is also likely to be directed toward relationships, as you feel the urge to merge with a significant other. You know what you want and you’re not afraid to go after it. You’ve got enhanced magnetism now, but you might scare some people away with your intensity. Watch out for a tendency toward jealousy, suspicion or possessiveness. You might find yourself wanting to control your partner, which is a signal that you’re lacking trust in the natural flow of life. When you let go of needing to control another, you can access even greater levels of power.
