Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a bit of a situation on hands, and a very active sky above our heads. Its another Kansas City Shuffle, and we have to watch everything so we dont miss it. First up- Mars in Scorpio (and the Sun in Virgo, but thats a different banana altogether)!
And thank the gods for it! Finally we are out of Libra (insert string of expletives here) and its time to stop walking on eggshells. Ladies and Gentlemen, its time to get pissed and play dirty, and god help anyone who stands in your way.
Ya see, Mars loves him some Scorp. He is the traditional ruler of the sign (before Pluto came up and took over) and still has strong ties to it. Mars in Scorpio is a mixed bag (hell, its astrology- when ISNT it a mixed bag?) but the core of his expression here is about getting down to the nitty gritty, without all the flowery masks of Libra and finding out what is really true, no matter what it is. Mars here has no time for games (but plenty of patience for a well-executed plan) and will suffer no fools. The masks come off here to reveal the beast below.
There is a lot of squinty-eyed intensity flying around during Mars in Scorpio, and this may not be easy for you, especially if you deal with the public. Mars here makes for easily bruised egos, and has the added bonus of making those whose egos are bruised fight back rabidly to avenge their honor or some such nonsense. The gifts that he brings with him are raw power, ability to smell bullshit a mile away, an iron will and unbreakable focus, so its not all bad.
Of course, we cant look at Scorpio without checking in on Pluto, still rolling through Capricorn like a boss. These two will play off of each other, and will work together to cause shenanigans on a hertofore unseen level, as the gods of the Underworld and War are wont to do. Try not to get hit by shrapnel.
Seriously though, there is a tendency to become extremely callous during this transit. If you start saying things like "collateral damage", "acceptable losses" or "cannon fodder" you may want to reconsider your direction. Unless your life direction deals with cannons (or any kind of high grade explosives) currently (which is awesome, and further proves im in the wrong business), in which case I suppose an exception can be made.
So basically, we're walking into a minefield. And this is only the beginning...
