Mars moves into Libra
By Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Mars moves into Libra where it will stay until August 23rd. Under the influence of Mars in Libra, and depending on how this transit affects your natal chart, you might find yourself putting other people’s needs before your own. It might be harder than usual to figure out what you want because you’re so tuned into others’ feelings. This can lead to indecision and spinning your mental wheels, endlessly weighing all the possible scenarios rather than jumping in and committing to a course of action. In fact, you might even have a fear of commitment now, preferring to keep your options open.
Harmony is important to you now, and you may hesitate to assert your own desires for fear of upsetting people or rocking the boat in any way. While you might have a hard time standing up for yourself, when it comes to standing up for other people, you’re a passionate champion for the underdog. You’ve got a strong sense of fairness and are willing to fight for justice.
During this transit, you might have a tendency to suppress your anger, which could lead to feelings of frustration and irritation. At worst, your behavior could become passive-aggressive, as you try to manipulate outcomes instead of asserting yourself more directly. You might need to take the risk of temporarily upsetting the external harmony by being honest about your feelings, in order to create a more authentic and lasting peace.
