Mars moves into Capricorn tomorrow for a two-month stay.
Mars is in its exaltation in Capricorn. The combative, reckless nature of the warrior planet is moderated. In Capricorn, Mars chooses his battles thoughtfully and carefully.
Enthusiasm for idealism is replaced with a sort of unforgiving practicality when Mars moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn. Two of the most unforgiving planets, Saturn and Pluto, are already in Capricorn. Mars will form conjunctions to the two on April 2 and April 26 respectively.
Expect this period to be remarkably unsentimental. People will be going about their business in a way that may seem rather ruthless at times. With a few planets simultaneously transiting fiery Aries, there is likely to be tension between those who have behaved selfishly and recklessly, and those who have the power to penalize them. Remember that Jupiter is in Karmic Scorpio at the moment, while Karmic Saturn is in discipline-loving Capricorn. As I’ve mentioned here a million times before, the overarching theme for much of 2018 is seeing people get what they deserve. Much of that is going to occur over the next eight or nine weeks.
So, if you’ve been good, you’ve probably got nothing to worry about. If you’ve been bad, you’re probably reading this post with an expression on your face similar to the goat in the photo I posted above — as you should be. A time of reckoning is upon us.
