Mars -- the planet of vitality, action and passion -- is making its once-every-two-year transit of Virgo, where it will remain from October 15 to December 7, 2013. While those born under the sign of the chaste maiden will be especially hot-and-bothered, Mars will bring its enthusiastic energy to all signs in different ways. To find out what’s in store for you, read on!
With Mars in your wellness sector, you'll have the drive and determination to get in shape -- which will neutralize all those extra calories that are on the horizon this holiday season! You'll also be a dynamo when it comes to plowing through chores and task work. Instead of seeming like soul-killing drudgery, tidying up will come with little-to-no effort.
Break out the candles because this is a perfect time for wine and romance. If your couple life has seemed all duty and no play, plenty of passion is in store, which could result in a new bundle of joy -- if you're trying to conceive. If you're single, you're at a two-year high in seductive prowess, so be sure to get out and mingle!
While yours is a sign that likes to be out-and-about, you can take advantage of the cold weather to spend time with family and get your house in order. This is an auspicious time to renovate, repair or redecorate. If you have been searching for a new place to live, you may even find your dream home! Only setback: tempers may flair with family, so play nice!
Spread the word! All forms of communication are favored -- be it catching up socially with friends or sending out your resume -- you may just end up with a new job. If you're in business for yourself, take out advertising to promote your wares. No need to crabwalk sideways around confrontation; whatever's on your mind, get it out in the air!
If you want money, you have to earn it -- and you can significantly raise your earnings potential over the upcoming weeks if you make the effort. Eager to launch your own business? This is an especially auspicious time to lay the groundwork for success. You can also add to your wages through seasonal temp work, a new job or negotiating for a raise.
Stop caring what others think and just be yourself. It’s time to get in touch with your true, seductive, magnetic identity and let it shine. While you can often be shy and reticent, confident Mars is setting your assertiveness on fire, allowing you to share all that wonderful sensitivity, kindness and intelligence that you normally keep locked up inside.
You're normally a party animal, but you may have gone too overboard, even by your standards, during the past six weeks due to gregarious Mars transiting your social sector. Mars now moves into your zone of rest and recuperation. This period of relaxing downtime will allow you to recharge your batteries in preparation for the hustle-and-bustle of the Christmas and New Year festivities.
Scorpios tend to prefer small, cozy gathering with extremely close friends, filled with deep conversations on profound subjects ¬¬-- but now you're ready for some silly, superficial fun. This is a great time to go out, mingle and laugh with a large group of people. You see your core group of friends all the time, so why not throw an open-door birthday bash that becomes legend?
Roll up your sleeves and get to work! With ambitious Mars transiting your sector of career success, you are incredibly productive and visionary over the next six weeks, which will help you literally shoot up the ladder of success. If you focus on your long-term career objectives, you will be able to impress those who run the show -- or even start running it yourself!
It’s time to get out and explore the world through ideas, travel or spirituality. If you are a student -- or a student of life -- this is an especially inspiring time when new concepts can expand your consciousness, allowing you to experience the world in a whole new way. You may also feel lawsuit happy, so don't get sucked into legal battles that will consume your time and resources.
You normally prefer the group dynamic and keeping conversations externally or intellectually focused. But with passionate Mars in your intimacy zone, you won't mind a little one-on-one playtime with your lover. This is also an auspicious moment for joint financial endeavors, such as taking out a mortgage together or seeking money from another source. Just be careful not to rack up too much debt.
It's time to make a commitment, plan an engagement or get married. Even if tempers may flare from time to time, you'll get much farther in life in tandem rather than on your own, so seek out true love or a business partner to accompany you along life's journey. Previously hidden enemies may show their true face in the weeks ahead, so be sure to watch your back.
