Mars in Aries is here and it’s inciting major action

     Ready for an energetic reset and boost of confidence, courage and competitiveness? Well, guess what… On May 24, Mars, the planet of action / energy / courage / competition, enters fiery Aries, igniting an energetic and achievement reset for us all.

     In case you haven’t read about Mars, here’s a refresher: Mars is the planet that motivates you to get up, get moving and get going with your goals. Its function in astrology is to provoke, to initiate, to pursue and to get you excited about the thrill of the hunt.

     Since Mars rules Aries, this transit of Mars in Aries is about as effortless as Margot Robbie’s style. (Fun fact: Robbie has her natal Mars in Aries!) That means, your ambition, your lust for achievement, your inner athlete and competitor are gonna get JACKED

     It’s true, like a dude bro at the gym, you’ll soon be feeling pumped about, well, everything. During Mars in Aries, your optimism, enthusiasm and energy is endless. So, there’s no better time to start a new project (Aries is the sign of entrepreneurs) or charge ahead on any self-driven goals that have simmered during Mars in Pisces. 

     Mars in Aries is cause for celebration. (Too bad bitcoin pizza day already happened or we could celebrate that way.) Of course, how Mars in Aries will ignite your life and where it will give you a boost of energy, courage, and drive depends entirely on your Sun and Rising sign. 

     So, without further ado:

Your 2022 Mars in Aries Horoscope

Aries ♈

     Attack life! (As if you needed an excuse to do so…) Mars in Aries gives you the courage, drive and energy to go after your big goals. The transit also increases your urge for freedom, crisis and challenge. (While causing some frustration and one or two fights–just saying.) Motivation to go after what you really want–a new job, a new relationship, a new hairstyle–won’t be lacking for a single effing minute, so take advantage, Aries… 

Taurus ♉

     The aggression, ambition and energy of Mars in Aries finds expression behind the scenes. Actively pursue any and all remote or unseen projects (ghostwriting, ghost editing, being an understudy, etc.). This transit also hurls you headfirst into an intense attack on the skeletons in your closet. Mars in Aries gives you the courage to clean house and move on from past resentments and unmet goals (and maybe start therapy), and unstick any stuck psychic stuff… 

Gemini ♊

     Gird yourself for a hotheaded pursuit of the influencer life. Mars in Aries urges you to put yourself out there on a grand scale. Social media–TikTok, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook–is high on your to-do list. (So too is chasing your wildest hopes, wishes and dreams.) You’ve got big ideas for the future, so be like Don from Fast and Furious, and don’t shy away from assembling a team to help you conquer the world wide web…    

Cancer ♋

     Career ambitions and pursuits become top priority. You’re looking for high-paying gigs that give you both freedom, independence and security in equal and ample doses. Arguing with higher-ups may be the unfortunate result. After all, Mars in Aries makes you braver and more assertive / ambitious than ever. This might be the time when you ditch the 9-to-5 drudgery of corporate life and pursue a freelance lifestyle. (Linked-In, Fiverr and Upwork are good places to start.)… 

Leo ♌

     Looking for an adventure? Mars in Aries instigates a new chapter of travel and venturing out of your comfort zone, giving you an extra dash of confidence and daring to confront (and eventually cream) any obstacles in your path to success. The pace of pre-existing publishing or higher-ed endeavors also picks up, so too does your interest in finishing them. Never have you ever felt so zestful and zealous for going big or going home… 

Virgo ♍

     Investments–especially ones with others–suddenly hold massive, burning interest for you. Don’t be surprised if you spend your free time investigating the best cryptocurrencies on the market or how you and your partner can make/sell/buy NFTS. Mars in Aries riles up that part of your chart where mysterious monies, shared stakes, and partnered possessions live. You mustn’t go it alone: A VA (that’s shorthand for virtual assistant) could help with your obsession with acquisition… 

Libra ♎

     Lead the way and watch how your bold actions inspire and motivate other people. And speaking of other people, Mars in Aries has you hurrying to encounter, experience and, eventually promote others’ accomplishments. If you’re in a partnership (be it business or romantic), marketing and PR work for your S.O. will keep you busy. There’s just one catch: you’re apt to be a tad more argumentative and outwardly assertive, if not single-minded and pushy… 

Scorpio ♏

     Start over. Yep, it’s just that simple. Mars in Aries instigates a refresh for your daily work and workout routine. You’ve got loads of energy to tackle any of those to-dos that have fallen by the wayside. That newfound lust for health and wellness could see you hurrying to the gym for HIIT training, crossfit and/or Zumba. Physical activities are a must for burning off extra steam. Just be wary of impatience or burnout… 

Sagittarius ♐

     Stanley Cup Playoffs are in full swing and you are HERE for it. You’re also here for sports betting, ‘cuz you love risks. Well, Mars in Aries kicks your fervent interest in speculation up a notch. Taking major chances becomes your new fave activity (and borderline obsession). Buuuut if gambling isn’t your bag, baby, maybe romance is. Mars ignites your love life and you can’t help but go out and get another kind of action… 

Capricorn ♑

     Compassion for children (or your inner child) surges as you spend more and more time with the family at home. Mars in Aries accelerates the tempo of your casa and it’s suddenly the place everyone wants to be. It could be that more of you are home together and a lot is going on (i.e.: Everyone’s arguing because being in such close quarters pisses you off). That, or you zealously start real estate investment… 

Aquarius ♒

     Attempts at slowing down are futile. Mars in Aries quickens the pace of your day-to-day life and the communication that goes with it. Text, emails, social media DMs and the like gain major momentum. Expect lots of back and forth between you and your friends / siblings (or sibling-like friends) and a flurry of new events that require your attendance. Hey, parties are a great place to gain new contacts (and maybe new networking skills)… 

Pisces ♓

     Purpose sky rockets and your wallet reaps the rewards. Mars in Aries gives you a newfangled confidence in marketing and profiting from your innate skills. An intense passion for money-making propels you to hunt down any and all opportunities that’ll utilize all the things you love. Bitcoin stocks and NFTS are an obvious choice, but maybe it’s time to start freelancing and building your personal portfolio with a few blog writing or graphic design projects…
