Channeling the Warrior Energy
Most of us have a certain person or special place we visit that inspires us to be the best version of ourselves—someone or someplace that draws out our finest qualities and allows us to shine in the brightest, most positive light possible. The same holds true for the planets—each planet has one particular zodiac sign where it functions at its very best, where all of its gifts, strengths and virtues are fully on display, fully energized and most active—where, in astrological terms, it is exalted.
The planet Mars is exalted in the sign of Capricorn—through which it will be transiting from October 30th until December 9th. This is good news, especially for those with Mars in Capricorn in their natal chart.
Fiery Mars is the planet of action; it is a rugged, fiercely independent individualist that exudes confident, self-assured energy. It embodies the passion, determination and driving force we need to get things done. At its best—as it is when exalted in Capricorn—Mars can infuse us with the strength and stamina to overcome hardship and conquer any hurdle blocking our path to success; it gives us the power, bravery and courage to take charge of our lives and stand firm when confronted by enemies or adversity. Mars is ambitious by nature and relentlessly drives us to succeed—it makes us a leader instead of a follower, pushing us to be the captain of the football team, the company CEO, the head of state and the person everyone turns to for guidance during a crisis.
Of course, Mars is most famously known as the warrior planet. When it is exalted in Capricorn, it epitomizes the bravado, courage and cunning of a military tactician—and for good reason. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which infuses it with structure, self-discipline, self-reflection, discernment and strategic, long-term planning. Even though Mars and Saturn are both malefic planets and are natural enemies, their energies, related to deep thought and emphatic action, tend to complement each other in Capricorn. The Saturnine influence on Mars in Capricorn serves to harness, coordinate and steer Mars’s intense and brash energy in a positive and creative direction, giving the red planet’s zeal, impulsive temperament and daring, pioneering spirit purpose, shape and focus.
Besides possessing the strict, practical wisdom of Saturn, its ruler, Capricorn, also represents the 10th house of the zodiac. When Mars passes through Capricorn it has the opportunity to shine in the areas of life the 10th House governs, including career, social status, dignity, public reputation, fame, leadership and worldly accomplishment.
The symbol of Capricorn is the mountain goat, which scales great heights with courage and tenacity to reach the highest peaks of success. With the dauntless energy and irrepressible willpower of Mars in Capricorn, those heights are within our reach.
