Mars in Aries: Intense Family Dynamics
As the planet of assertiveness, energy and action, Mars is the planet we look to for insight around anger and passion. The sign Mars is travelling through always tells us something abut how passion, anger and energy will manifest. Given that Mars is in his home sign, Aries, between now and May 11, energy levels are higher than usual. What also intensifies under this pairing is expressiveness and the need to say “I want”. This is fine for helping you express your needs, but in family dynamics, too much independence can cause friction.

Whilst in Aries, Mars makes a number of links to other planets. These will intensify the expression of energy at home, and amp the potential for anger.

Moon conjunct Mars, April 29 – May 1
The Moon brings sensitivity to Mars, helping you connect with family members at an emotional level. People can be reactive under this influence. If emotions flare, a little space is useful to allow everyone to calm down. Following your instincts with family is a must now; the Moon and Mars together helps you act from the heart. As the Moon is in the balsamic phase when it aligns with Mars, these couple of days are perfect for finishing incomplete domestic jobs or sorting out an ongoing family drama.

Mars conjunct Jupiter, May 1 – 3
Mars’ already potent energy is enhanced by expansive Jupiter, making this a time when big demands or large projects can emerge. A great way to handle super-active kids now is to make things more adventurous. Physical challenges can be exciting, providing an outlet for extra energy. It’s a great time to tackle new home projects or reconnect with family.

Here’s what your family members really need whilst Mars is in Aries. Having these basic needs met for each family member will lead to more peace on the homefront.

Aries: Time for themselves. Being able to do what they want.

Gemini: Group connections and time with friends.
Cancer: Recognition for worldly or work related achievements.
Leo: Adventure and new experiences outside their comfort zone.
Virgo: Trust and loyalty. Knowing the people they love will support them.
Libra: Quality time with loved ones. Knowing they matter to others.
Scorpio: Exercise and good food. Health is their priority.
Sagittarius: Playtime! Creative or artistic outlets are a must.
Capricorn: Quality time with family and time out from work pressures.
Aquarius: Space and freedom to express unusual ideas without judgement.
Pisces: Independence with money, and the ability to earn for themselves.

And since Mars in Aries is intensely physical, if all else fails, take everyone outdoors for some activity; It’s a great way to burn off the heat of Mars and reduce emotional tension.
