Mars is the planet of war and aggression. It’s a planet that fights for desirous sentiments and doesn’t put up with any drama from anyone. On a bad day, Mars can be as selfish and demanding as an ill-mannered child. Unfortunately, temper tantrums are one element of this passionate planet that always has to get its way. If it doesn’t, be prepared for arguments to ensue.
Today, tempestuous Mars enters the sign of Capricorn. Hardworking and tough Capricorn is in its exaltation (considered the best placement that Mars can be in when in Capricorn). Mars is exuberantly happy in Capricorn for many reasons. First, this placement dictates a will that pushes us to act in a daring way and fight till the bitter end in confrontations.
Mars in Capricorn likes to complete matters. It doesn’t leave any detail to the imagination, and it makes sure that every task is signed, sealed, and delivered. Mars in Aries starts the dream, Mars in Scorpio does the work, and Mars in Capricorn completes the task. It also adds a lot of power and energy to sex drives and an eagerness to work hard.
Mars arrives in Capricorn early this morning and provides the raw materials needed to make lasting and productive adjustments. The insights that we are beginning to form are well protected. The Moon’s afternoon square to Pluto does suggest that we may reach a critical juncture of some kind today but we aren’t likely to feel that we need to fully explain ourselves. The hesitance and caution that we feel is actually unassailable and we don’t need to spend much effort tamping down impatience. The Moon goes void-of-course at 2:09 PM PST, following the square to Pluto, and arrives in Scorpio at 7:56 PM PST. The evening’s Moon-Mars sextile allows us room to prepare to further lock in our efforts at individual stabilization.

2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
JAN 17: FULL MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
JAN 25: LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
Don’t talk yourself into diving deep into something just because you see the potential of things instead of what they really are now. The necessary work and patience involved may not be the best use of your energy.
Have you seen the potential in someone and think that if you love and support them, they will become the person who knows you love them beyond all others? Have you stepped into an opportunity that you know feels too good to be true and might not turn out the way you hope?
Now is not a time for selective, limited perception that can lead to misjudgment. Instead, this is a time for going deep and being honest about what you find as you explore the depths. Have no fear, for whatever you find below will help you love and understand yourself and others, and make better choices.
Can you sense Swan Spirit calling you to dive deep and resurface to choose again?
