Mars our Planet of energy, action, movement, anger, passion and war enters the sign Pisces on January 12th at 5:40 AM EST until February 19th at 7:12 PM EST when it enters the sign Aries. Mars in Pisces is a reluctant warrior, a passionate lover, a concerned leader, and a beloved hero! Within all of Mars manifestations, it is of course, most at home in its own sign of Aries — herein we get the most powerful energy and passion available to mankind. Used wisely this is a magnificent gift to us of honor, duty, love, and order — however on the other side of the coin it can be fanatic, brutal, angry, controlling and a very unappealing despot. While in Pisces we get a kinder and more compassionate Mars — not completely happy in this watery and empathetic sign, still Mars will put a bit of backbone into Pisces who will be able to follow through with some of their more worthy deeds and charitable works.
While in Pisces, Mars will square Saturn in Sagittarius on the 15th for a momentary dust-up at 2 degrees of the signs — if you have any Planets at this degree just be aware of some controversy within your realm. On the 19th, Mars will conjunct Neptune with a steamy combustion that may bring some very passionate moments, or will bring a flood of tears and vexation.

On the 30th Mars in Pisces will sextile Pluto at 14 degrees of the sign Capricorn — these two powers can work their magic and help you go forward with an important plan — (however remember there still is Rx Mercury to deal with now) — so you might be better served if you take this time to be sure your ideas and plans are able to be implemented in a conscientious and straightforward way.
Mars in Pisces will bring heightened dream states, a more compassionate love of mankind, intense feelings, over-the-top ideas about service to others, and an emotional depth most of us find difficult to encompass.

Mars is fearless in all activities that require strength, valor, sacrifice, loyalty, brotherhood, country and family. Where Mars gets a little apprehensive is when emotions soar to heights that require total submission to actually feeling everything! Mars forte is not an over sentimental or saccharine kind of love, rather a passionate encompassing of all emotion put into fierce and aggressive action.

You may find you have a tiger by the tail in this wildly passionate creature who doesn’t know how to let you know how much you mean to him/her.
