Get ready for a dramatic shift as Mars moves into his home turf from August 23 to October 6. Scorpio stars signify intense territory and Mars initiates the way we will fight or take flight. Expect passions to flare. There is something mysterious and magnetic about the energy when Mars is hanging out in the constellation of the Scorpion. If you’re not sure where you stand with someone, prepare to find out the hard way.

Mars in Scorpio creates the kind of dramatic emotional battles that start out seething deep beneath the surface of appearances. You may not know what hit you, but once it does expect to be stung to your very core. There is nothing halfway or temperate about the energy of Scorpio. It’s love or hate; all or nothing at all.

Scorpio will always penetrate past facades, so don’t expect to get away with even a scrap of fakery during this transit. Be sure you’re clear about your motives and avoid all forms of emotional manipulation lest you’d like hell to pay. Mars in Scorpio is relentless in getting to the core emotional truth of a situation before any trust is invested.

The secretive quality of Mars in Scorpio can make everyone a bit on edge as if something foreboding is rumbling under the surface. There is a sense of danger in the air, which can feel both sexy and disturbing at the same time depending on how you channel the energy. This is an excellent time to test your emotional strength and courage to persevere despite the obstacles.

Scorpio is famous for creating in order to destroy and destroying in order to create -- death in the service of life. Don’t be afraid to kill off that which no longer serves you and watch how quickly your life force regenerates. It’s stagnation that kills us slowly and not always softly. This is a time to get in touch with the fierce edge of our emotional energy and fighting spirit. Just make sure the fight is for transformation and strength.

In the wisdom of Muhammed Ali, “Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”
