Mars, the planet that rules our get-up-and-go meter, will be in sensitive Pisces from February 1 to March 12, 2013. What does this mean for you when the planet of assertion moves through what is arguably the most passive sign of the zodiac? Will you lose that pep in your step for the next few weeks? Well, not necessarily...
You can find out how Mars affects you personally with a Mars Power report. But generally speaking, although Mars will be in the soft, ethereal Pisces, Mars is still Mars. The complexity lies in the fact that while Mars is in this sign, he'll need to adjust his Martian ways to accommodate a style that the sign Pisces is comfortable wearing.
This is not an easy task when you realize that Pisces is all about faith, compassion, healing those who suffer and unconditional love. So, how does Mars put up his dukes to fight when he's wearing that long, glittery evening gown with a pair of angel wings? In a word: gingerly.
That's right. Mars in Pisces doesn't necessarily mean your drive will disappear into thin air. Although you may have more of an urge to dream and use your imagination, Mars in Pisces can move mountains in a subtle way when you realize you've now got a cosmic green light to direct your vitality towards inspired (Pisces) action (Mars).
Fight for the underdog
What better time than now to push ahead on that creative pursuit, or become the leader of the pack when it comes to a charitable cause? You can save the whales, feed the homeless, fight for the rights of the abused and so much more during this incredible transit.
But what about the other side of Mars in Pisces? That is, the tendency to hide your ambition or recoil in fear when the bullies come out to taunt you.
True, Mars in Pisces is the energy for benevolence just as much as it can be -- in its shadow, the energy of the ultimate wuss. Just remember, under the right circumstances turning the other cheek can actually be the ultimate sign of strength. Only you can decide.
Mars in Pisces can be downright sexy. This is the ultimate combination of sensitivity and potency. Think of that gorgeous muscle man you know who isn't afraid to cry. Think of The Peaceful Warrior. Now that's fighting spirit! Use it well.
