On May 2nd Mars the planet of action and force moved into its exaltation position, joining the smokey and headless planet Ketu in Capricorn where it remains until November 5th 2018.
Mars the soldier planet can be impulsive and fiery, it gives us the necessary energy for strategy, protection, strength and focus.
Ketu the shadow planet can behave like Mars yet it has more of a spiritual warrior and seeker influence stemming from its dissatisfaction and a need for independence, Ketu reveals our past life karmas and a desire for liberation. The blind spot Ketu gives us is a know it all attitude that is non negotiable.
Mars transiting through Capricorn for the next five months will feel long and lengthy due to its retrograde pattern. Mars will pass Ketu three times during its stay, with the final pass September 22nd before finally moving into Aquarius on November 5th.
As Mars enjoys an exalted status in Saturn's male sign, Capricorn, we can expect a higher expression of Mars' energy becoming more energised and focused with a desire to act and to make bolder moves. There is a great deal of potential with Mars over the next four weeks, as we inherit Mars strength and willpower to accomplish significant work on projects that requires planning and discipline.
This more positive expression will last until the first few days June at which time there will be a notable shift in energy as Mars comes closer to Ketu on the 7th & 8th in exact degrees- Mars, Saturn and Ketu are not social planets and during this period is is a time where the storm begins to brew with intensity lasting until November.
Where this is occurs in your chart and what Mars rules and your personal Dasha (planet) cycle helps to better navigate its effects. We also must consider Saturn in this mix as he will be retrograde until September.
Overall this is a time for us all in which Mars and Ketu are generating a lot of power we should focus our efforts more strategically and really begin to work for peace.
I send you lots of love and luck with its transit
