Following the New Moon in Pisces, that crests at 8:11 AM EST (adjust for DST), Mighty Mars will enter the sign Capricorn on March 17th at 11:41 AM EST (adjust for DST). Mars becomes a bit cranky and more stoic whilst in Capricorn — as this Cardinal Earth sign just doesn’t fit with Mars energetic nature. Capricorn is more of a step-by-step mover, cautious and patient — neither trait Mars can truly appreciate. Still after a while psyching each other out — Mars begins to realize that Capricorn is quite the good buddy when trying to reach what seems to be an unattainable goal. Indeed — Mars begins to think — this stodgy Old Man’s calculating pace might be able to be used to further My dynamic thinking and dramatic outlook.
So Mars begins to coddle this staid Oldster in order to win Him over with the charm and charisma only Mars can emit — especially when there is something He wants. Of course, Capricorn isn’t new to Mars games — He has been through this routine before and can, with his patience and stamina bring Mars around to the more comfortable pace Capricorn is most in favor of using. Once they establish the Yin and Yang of one another, their relationship will blossom and there isn’t much that they cannot accomplish by working together. Moving more slowly through Capricorn, Mars won’t enter Aquarius until May 16th as it is working towards going Retrograde in late June. If the Zodiac House where Capricorn lives in your chart is particularly important, Mars will certainly bring some changes and energy into play for the next several weeks. Check out any aspects in opposition also, as this mighty power will be strutting His stuff and making His presence known.

Mars in Capricorn Love Style — Mars is a bit more stable and connected to loved ones when in Capricorn — family means a lot to this combination.
