This is a photo of the Korolev Crater on Mars from just a few days ago. It looks about as suitable for life as the place that I live. Oh, I shouldn’t complain. The winter here hasn’t really been that bad.
Anyway, Mars moves into my sixth house this evening where it will remain for one whole month. Mars is moving rapidly again and my sixth house is sort of puny compared to the other houses of my horoscope.
Nevertheless, I adore sixth house transits. I’m an organized, Virgo-like character who thrives on the routine and self-discipline that most sixth house transits bring. When Mars entered my fifth house a few weeks back, I speculated that it would be a welcome change after it spent what seemed like forever in my fourth house during its retrograde phase. I suppose that it wasn’t a bad transit, but it didn’t do much for me from a creative perspective. I thought that maybe I would start writing something profound. I didn’t.
I did, however, come up with an idea that I’m ready to put into words. Perhaps my creative juices were flowing while Mars was in the fifth house, and now with the planet moving into the sixth, I’m going to organize my thoughts and actually commit to a project.
I hope that’s how it works. My astro.com horoscope says this about the transit:
At this time you will throw your ego energies into working hard and getting things done. Now you are much more able to defer tomorrow’s pleasure for today’s work. In fact you are likely to take considerable pride in how much work you can do during this time.
That would be better than finding something else to binge-watch on Netflix, right?
Let’s see if this month-long event really gets me going. Stay tuned . . .
