Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
Like it or not, you’re still the leader, and while you may not be out in front or playing a direct and visible role, you are setting the tone for all those who look to you for guidance. Stay true to your guiding light and you will be a beacon for others to steer by.
Taurus April 20-May 20.
Mars is so deeply embedded in your Solar House of the unconscious—and will be for the next several months—that it’s truly necessary to stay tethered to an external reference point that can act as a guiding light. Identify what matters most and then take your stand based on those values.
Gemini May 21-June 21
It goes without saying (but I’m gonna say it anyway) that information and education are essential to your mental health. Take your stand for the facts, plain and simple, and then let your devotion to and enthusiasm for data grounded in reality rather than opinion inspire others to make a similar commitment.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Mars stirs your ambitions, whatever they may be, and moves you into decisive action. There are more than a few obstacles to overcome in order to move into any kind of sustained effort, but rather than despair about the hard work, use it to your advantage by seeing it as an opportunity to hone your skills.
Leo July 23-August 22
There’s no need to take a stand for anything unless you’re sure you want to put your fire and passion into that cause. As you gather information, remember to consider the consequences of your choices. Try to create a synthesis of intent and action—spontaneity can be exciting, but nothing beats thoughtful choices.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Contemplate what stand you would take for the benefit of others without sacrificing your well-being. I’m not suggesting you put on a helmet and camp out on the front lines, but I am advising you to consider where your contribution would make its mark and have the most beneficial effect.
Libra September 23-October 22
The downside of Mars in your Solar House of relationship: you may feel the need to bicker or fight with all your significant others, personal or professional. The upside of this transit: if you are determined to transform old habits that no longer serve, Mars can fortify your stand for a new relationship paradigm.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
I can’t help but think that you’re content with Mars transiting your Solar House of service—it most likely means you’re busy. And while I know there are exceptions, being engaged in positive action, especially action that help others, is a great way to take a stand and spend the currency of this intensity.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
You’re in a creative process and while it may not feel as if you have the clarity you desire or that you are making the kind of progress that would be satisfying, you’re still immersed in a phase of discovering what you would like to express. Surrender to this process and you could be surprised by what you learn.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
I hope you are hunkered down at home, using the intensity of Mars to make home improvements. You could be surprised by how strongly you feel about certain things and how willing you are to take a stand for those concerns. Remember, these home improvements are internal as well as external.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
You’re taking a stand for candid conversation—that’s a good thing. It’s just important to remember that not everyone is willing to be as direct. Listen carefully to what’s being said and you’ll find a way to elevate that Martian intensity into a keen ear for what is needed.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Be prepared to take a stand for what matters most to you—Mars is in your Solar House of value, and while that does include money, it means everything that’s most important to you. Embrace this process and you’ll emerge with a keen appreciation of your most valuable assets—self-confidence and self-esteem.
