Mars entered the creative and free-flowing sign of Pisces only a couple days ago, so you are probably feeling some serious changes in your life already.
Mars in Pisces is indirect action. It’s drifting rather than pushing. Allowing rather than initiating. You cannot force anything in Pisces, so Mars can be a bit uncomfortable here. But it’s also a nice way to end the year – things will happen as they’re meant to, and all you have to do is be open to that. Do what you can, and let the rest take care of itself. There may be a release as the tension of the past few months dissolves. Sometimes the most you can “do” is let go.
Mars in Pisces (your actions) creates ripples, but you will have minimal control over what they’ll hit. The best you can do is ensure that your initial motivations and intentions are healthy. This also means taking care of yourself, because when Pisces is activated there is an increased risk for vulnerability. Mars in Pisces can drift down some questionable paths.
Pisces is an adaptable, emotional water sign, and the most psychic and spiritual one in the zodiac, co-ruled by generous Jupiter and mystical Neptune. This is the sign of dreams, imagination, and empathy. Pisces has a chameleon soul, always changing and shifting their mood, while remaining emotionally wide-open–their famous sensitivity and vagueness stems from this. As a result, this sign is filled to the brim with compassion and is the zodiac’s martyr archetype, generous and willing to give up everything to help others and connect on a deeply emotional and spiritual level.
Your intuition and emotional competence expand with Pisces’ psychic nature being supercharged by Mars, and you’re more motivated by Piscean grace and kindness. Pisces lives in a fairytale world, and Mars’ energy helps you get in touch with your own dreams, chase them down, and make them a reality! The heightened sensitivity of this time opens the door to truly becoming emotionally entangled with your loved ones and getting to know others on a more intimate level.
Here is your horoscope for this powerful transit:
You’re very Martian in nature—direct, assertive, and bold. As a cardinal fire sign, you’re motivated to achieve your personal goals and stop at nothing to get what you want. Pisces is different—a team player that can’t decide what it wants for itself. Chasing your individual dreams won’t be very productive for you right now, unless your peers and friends have similar goals. This is all about teamwork and working your ass off for the wellbeing of others.
Don’t expect to be recognized for your contributions, either—if you’re on a team just to further your own agenda, you aren’t really being selfless, are you? Push your ego to the side and bite your tongue for now. Your contributions to the cause will bring you rewards in due time.
Dreams of the future fill your mind for the duration of Mars in Pisces. At the same time, the dreams of your peers become more and more apparent throughout the next several weeks. Turns out, all of your goals are aligned! Teamwork makes the dream work, Taurus. You prefer to work alone and do things your way or not at all, no matter how long it takes.
But have you ever considered how much greater the rewards will be when you have the whole squad working towards the same goals? This isn’t the time to let someone else be the boss—right now, you’re the head honcho and can develop serious leadership skills and grow closer with your network.
In your chart, Mars in Pisces is supercharging the zone of career, success, and public image. You have thoughts running through your brain at a million miles a minute, and the dreamy Piscean energy now helps you come up with even bigger goals. With all of these bright ideas, it’s hard to pick just one, but if you can pick a single goal and aim high, you’re likely to find success.
At its best, Mars in Pisces gives you a serious boost in energy, and your motivation is at an all time high! At its worst, your personal goals and need to achieve override everything else and you clash with your coworkers and superiors. This astro-forecast can make or break your reputation because every step you take towards your goals is noticed by everyone (especially authority figures), for better or for worse.
As assertive Mars enters Pisces, you can expect to feel more motivated, creative, and eager than usual. This increases your need to live life to the fullest and amplifies your appetite for knowledge and adventure. You’re eager to connect and learn from others, and teach them by sharing your experiences, and anything that can broaden your horizons is very appealing now.
You may want to travel if possible, because if you do it promises to be an eye-opening experience that teaches you a lot about yourself and others. Enjoy the boost in confidence, but make sure that you don’t come off as cocky or over-the-top.
Mars was in Aquarius for several months, turning back and forth with its retrograde cycle, and creating a whirlwind of trouble in your chart’s relationship zone. If you’re in a seriously committed partnership, the energy between you and your S.O. is amplified even more now. The good moments are great (especially in bed—Mars in Pisces does wonders for your libido) but the bad moments are intensified as well.
Mars wants to instigate a transformation of some sort in this part of your chart. If your love life is looking up, you can enjoy a few weeks of hotter intimacy, more intimate interactions, and create a more all-encompassing familiarity with bae. If you’re skating on thin ice, tread lightly to avoid any upsets, because they tend to be explosive now! At the end of the year, the relationship is completely transformed.
For months, Mars in Aquarius has been generating frustration and stress in your work life. You’ll be happy to hear that work life will slow down now, and any pesky tension headaches clear up soon, too! Your chart’s relationships zone is activated by Mars now, which means your one-on-one interactions are subject to the red planet’s high-energy vibes and assertive nature.
You naturally tend to bend over backwards for people, and because of that, can be taken advantage of sometimes. With Mars in Pisces, speaking up isn’t hard at all, and you can use this energy to reclaim your power in any unequal relationships. With balanced relationships, Mars is pouring tons of enthusiasm into you and your partner, allowing you to build deeper connections and work as a team!
You got lucky with Mars this year! The red planet was in Aquarius, in your chart’s zone of recreation, romance, and intimacy, for over half the year, and your libido, creativity, and stamina has been on a roll! The pleasure and excitement that Mars has been blasting into your life isn’t necessarily going to subside with Mars in Pisces, but Mars is now in your chart’s zone of work life, pouring its aggressive nature into your job and daily routine. Responsibilities are piling on now, and coworkers creating difficulties might deplete your time and energy as well.
If you’re not constantly kept busy, you should find a physical outlet for this energy, because Mars is also in your chart’s sector of physical health and wellbeing. If you aren’t being productive at the job site or with your health, this energy easily comes out as nervous tics, muscle tension, or other stress-related health issues.
You don’t like to express your feelings, but with Mars in Pisces, you’re inspired to do just the opposite. The emotional abundance of this astrology helps you open up and be more flexible and earnest with your feelings, and honor the mutable characteristics of fellow water sign Pisces.
Your chart’s zone of passion, romance, and fun is also being jolted to life by Mars, after months of the red planet stirring up energy and stress in your home and family life. If you’re artistic at all, your creativity is flowing stronger than ever now, and you can put out some seriously astounding pieces of art. There’s a lot of physical energy coming from Mars, too, and your stamina is never-ending. A lot of freedom comes with this Mars phase, and the world is your oyster!
After what was likely the busiest year in recent memory, Mars finally leaves busybody Aquarius and slides into Pisces. In your chart, this is the zone of your home life and family affairs. With the aggressive and emotional nature of Mars in Pisces, watch out for arguments breaking out with the fam or your roommates. This is especially true from now until December 6, because Mercury retrograde happens in your sign! The positive side of Mars in Pisces is that your life circumstances arrange themselves in a way that you can focus on your life at home before anything else. Redecorating, moving house, or just planning events with friends or family at your home are great ways to channel Mars’ power here.
This part of your chart also has to do with your past and subconscious mind. Any mysterious habits or impulses make themselves known now, and if you aren’t conscientious, it’s easy to act inappropriately as these past issues are stimulated. Don’t get irritated over drama that ended long ago—use this relatively quiet time to meditate and reconcile these inner issues, and lay low.
The most action-packed planet is entering the busiest section of your chart now, so pick up the pace! The tempo of your day-to-day is climbing higher and higher for the next few weeks, and you have to move full steam ahead. You’re quite the chatterbox with this influence, because life circumstances compel you to require far more mental activity than usual now. Communicating, learning, teaching, texting, emailing, and traveling are on the agenda.
Your schedule is full and there’s always someone else to get in touch with, one more task to complete, one… more… thing… Mars’ energy is explosive and no matter where it is on your chart, it promises to get sh*t done. Here in Pisces, you run the risk of spreading yourself too thin and worrying over too many small tasks as opposed to working on one substantial accomplishment. Figure out what you can do in your everyday life to achieve your goals and focus this abundant energy into that!
This emotional whirlpool isn’t something you’re at all familiar with. You’re intellectual, logical, and are able to detach from your feelings, but with Pisces being the most emotional sign, any planetary action happening here compels you to get more attuned with your inner side and your feelings. In your chart, Mars is now highlighting your possessions, finances, and values. Aggressively working towards earning more coins is a benefit of the next several weeks, but you run the risk of hoarding and being miserly or selfish.
There’s also the possibility of become too emotionally attached to your possessions, or using money and your belongings to compensate for the lack of emotional intimacy in other areas of your life. Learning to share and be more generous with others is a great way to take advantage of this energy. You become more emotionally competent and open to others, which is never a bad thing!
After over half the year of Mars, the planet of action and aggression, in your chart’s zone of surrender, isolation, and the unconscious mind, it’s finally in your sign! You’ve been waiting for months to be noticed for what you’re contributing with no luck. Any attempts to push your own agenda haven’t shown much success the entire time Mars was in Aquarius, but now that you’re the star of the show, you can express yourself and assert your ego without a problem!
Everyone is operating on a similar frequency as you, living life ruled by the heart and subjective experiences, and the general sense of empathy and compassion you embody is felt by everyone else now, too. For the next few weeks, Mars is lighting a fire under your butt to move, work, play, and express yourself unapologetically!
