November 15: Mars Enters Pisces


Mars is commonly known as the planet of war and aggression, but it’s also the planet of defense, of passion, and of law. With the power of mars flooding through us we learn how to not just preserve ourselves, but understand and power through all the work necessary for us to get where we want to be on our path. Mars gives us the self-discipline to reach our goals.

And once Mars enters Pisces…you’re gonna need it.

It’s going to be a very common occurrence right now to feel like you aren’t getting the recognition you deserve, that someone “lesser” is getting more reward and recognition for half the work. And not only this but when you’re actively trying to put yourself out there and get that attention and recognition you feel you deserve…it all unravels and you get the opposite of what you desired.

It’s very easy to get frustrated and confrontational when this happens, but right now you need to channel the self-discipline energy Mars has blessed you with, and be very aware of yourself and how you react to those getting their time in the light right now. Confront yourself instead of confronting them; find out why you feel this is so important and why you want to treat them so harshly.

Mercury is currently in its storm and goes retrograde tomorrow, November sixteenth. This brings the past to the present.

When you combine that with this transit; it brings your old habits and behaviors to the present. This isn’t necessarily out of nowhere, either, it can easily be triggered by the current events and emotions you’re experiencing.

Allowing them to return serves only to hold you back. Be conscious of your actions and make the necessary changes, and inner laws to bring yourself forward, and eventually back into the spotlight.
