Mars in Scorpio 2016?  Right, here we go with Mars on the juice for ages.

It’s tracking over the well-trodden turf of Saturn in Scorpio (October 2012 to September 2016 –  r.i.p. till 2041 mate) and then blasting forth into Sagittarius before back-tracking into Scorp.

This is Mars in the sign that he ruled before anyone (except probably some Ancient Mayan types) realized that Pluto was there. It’s Mars in the deep, volcanic underground of Scorpio, primal and passionate.

Before you freak, protesting that YES you have done your times in the pits of Pluto or scorch trials of Saturn in Scorpio, remember that Mars IS the Action Planet.  So you could see it as your opportunity to energize and actuate the ‘findings’ of that long Saturn through Scorpio soul-mining.

Scorpios? Rev up. Aries also. And Capricorns, why not. For more on this, go re-listen to to get the (now free) download of Grandmaster Mars 2016 – my mp3 rant re this most intense and fascinating of astro-passages.  You just need to be logged in to grab it as it’s subscriber only.

And, how you feeling?   Motivated? Or like Mars and his mate Saturn can fuq right off out of dodge?

Thank you for the Grandmaster Mars 2016 download, Mystic. Very generous of you to offer it gratis. Mars is transiting my 5th house and is about to conjoin my Jupiter, then it will oppose my Taurus stellium- Saturn, Mercury, Venus. Retrograde action will be in my 6th house and it will oppose my 25º Toro Mars and conjunct my 0º Sag Neptune thrice. I am expecting an energetic slowdown with these aspects, as Mars is also the ruler of my Sun. But a sextile to my natal Pluto will come in handy. My plan for the 6th house transit, where… Read more »

Mars in Scorpio means a Mars return. Just after finishing the Saturn in Scorpio return. I have Pluto in the 1st, and Mars-conjunct-Saturn in the 2nd in Scorpio, so this should be an interesting few months. I love the Mars in Scorpio energy, though- focused, planned, and driven, with back-ups for everything. I’ve been knocking things off my to-do list since yesterday.

And mystic can I please thank you directly for pointing out 23 scorpio in the aries scopes?

Without that note I might not have anchored mars to this when it’s been a huge turning point day on which I just.might.have.been.overwhelmed by everything changing at the same time while waiting for something to happen.

For the record, of which there need not be one, I had to go find why this number was a thing. I found my neatly organized 3 ring fuqin binder full of awesomesauce printed charts.

It’s the midheaven of my job/union
And the midheaven of …drumroll …my 2016 solar return. Wooooot.

My 23 aries, lit up like a Christmas tree in the 8th house shadow with sophia, persephone,minerva,chaos on the lot of courage with eris and uranus opposition uranus.

thank you so much yall. Supernova protocol is as scheduled.

This lilith grinding up my permazapzone, tho. Come on, with a yod from jupe/node and moon to eris?

I can turn this to gold I can turn this to gold I can

My backpack should just have a flamethrower on it so I start burning the bridges before I’m even off them entirely.

With an apple projecting bazooka. I see this all as a marvel style film.

I have dibs on the part of eris, but I’ll be casting this one while not internalizing others anger.

Hmm, not sure how I feel about this one. Natal Mars is in Gemini, H3. This Mars in Scorpio is currently sitting in my 8th house and will eventually meander into my 9th house. More energy and potential confrontation coming up in the travel/study realm of things? I hope it’s energy… I like being robust in the 9th house. Maybe it indicates a time of taking more intellectual control over my life, as in perusing a career that actually relates to my linguistics degree (I damn hope so!) This Mars which is climbing into Scorpio is squaring my natal North… Read more »

Well this could be interesting …. Mars will be all over my Moon/Nep conj and then back for more.

It’s 3rd House biz soooo am fired up to finish paperwork (or else as have gov commitments must be uploaded by 5pm today or in deep shiz)

On the man front I am pushing myself to get out more and being brave re going to Meet Ups – years of Saturn thru Scorp pummelling away had semi shut down socialising but am poking my head out of the cave

Bring on the MARS

I hadn’t considered Saturn through Scorpio has part of my withdrawal from life – but combined with the Neptune-sq-Neptune I guess it makes sense.

I don’t see Mars (my ruling planet) being happy to skulk about at home and away from people. Went out with one of my best friends yesterday for brunch and had the best conversation, came home recharged and wanting to do stuff (so not me for so many months now). Hoping the Scorponic Mars is the life mojo I’ve been desperately looking for.

Refuse to say I’m “scared” although, after that horrendous Saturn transit, I’m beginning to wonder if it will be an aftershock all that shizz ( how many shocks can i get) OR the action/battle plan for my new dream/goal. I have jupiter and north node right on my 1st house saturn right now, too…which was at the eclipse degree in September. I feel like this is going to be me having to prove myself. I recently took an assessment for my new dream job…have time to wait if i get an interview..even then there is more testing..please, let this mars… Read more »

Whoa, I am so feeling this. Wrote from 6am till 2pm without looking up or remembering to eat. I’d been avoiding a story I’m trying to write because I was scared I didn’t know how to write it. Sounds crazy but I’d done all this research and thinking and backstory, worked out a timeline and driven myself half crazy trying to draft “the perfect” short story. Classic ADHD Anyway, it was bugging me that I hadn’t really worked on it for two days and by telling a few people, realized why. I wasn’t being lazy, I’d made the stakes too… Read more »

Huzzah for permission to write badly. The best gift us writers can give ourselves.

I’m lurking on the edge of returning to my birthpunk novella for the second draft and contemplating getting up the guts to pulling my novel part to work out what to do to fix it from the ground up.

2016 is going to be all the words for me. And it sounds like yours has got off to a flying start.

Mostly 5th house for me–I’m still going physical/martial with this though. Push-ups, squats, physical fitness–which for me, is no small thing–JOGGING. My policy is burn off any frustrations with heavy lifting/exercise.

Male cap sun, mars scorpio here + going trough my first Saturn comeback. I feel golden since about a week. Last year everything in my life just didn’t interest me anymore, so I just lethargically turned on netflix everyday while eating and drinking booze.
The change came about 2 months ago, went back to my old gym again, started excersizing again, and it keeps getting better. Now I work out 3 times a week again, cook a healthy dinner for myself and only get drunk when I don’t have anything planned and have a rest day.

Life is guddd right now.

Exciting as shit year for me! Sun Sag so Saturn in Sag + natal Mars in Scorpio to top it off. I am definitely feeling it already and love it. Multiple Cap in my chart too so productivity + energy have been through the roof

Was wondering where so much energy was coming from. Took my eye off the astro for a couple of weeks, and now realise that Mars has been on my Asc, conjunct Neptune and heading for Jupe… (lordy)
I spent most of the time fighting the urge to abuse substances. Fought fires instead. Mars was ON my Asc, Lilith sq Sun and Pluto opp Sun (all exact) when my shack was almost burnt down – the fire turned back 15 meters away from it. The urge to fight substance abuse has been shelved briefly (*kisses the sky*)

Insomnia is back. Moon in Scorpio does this too me every time, worse with a full moon. Now I’m wondering if the sleep issues eased with Saturn moving out of Scorpio.

It’s 1:30am and I’m sitting at my kitchen table knitting.

No idea what is being triggered because my 8th house Scorpio is empty – as is my 2nd house Taurus?!

Mars into Scorp is still about half way through my third house. Not sure how this changes the nature of my third, I am still learning this stuff and very late to Astro Hacks. My third house is empty – unless one counts Gary in the Libra half, and I’m guessing Mars doesn’t give a flying fuq about him. Looking forward to Mars in my fourth though. I feel I finally have a proper handle on my 4th. Finally lol. When people come to my home they always remark on how lovely the vibe is and how it looks and… Read more »

Finally some focus and enthusiasm. I got stuff done today. Baby steps planning out the year to come (I run my year by the Chinese calendar!)

But also some clients – perhaps – on what to do next with the Libran (ex) Lover. Mars in Scorpio and Venus in Sagittarius giving me a sense of unprecedented optimism and oomph to go for what I actually want rather than tip toeing around not wanting to push or upset anyone. Now it’s about what I want and asking directly for it.

Oh Mystic!
I am sooo insanely revved up, every fiber of my being…exactly, Anya, BRING IT ON!

Triple Scorpio: SUN, MARS and VENUS with Pluto within range….it is like I am on fire.
Only worry: how to conquer the occasional fextreme lower scorpio shizz? I decided to make Saturn my friend, that is step one…what else?

Felt the 0º Mars yesterday

I have Sun, Merc and Neptune in Scorp AND Mars/Uranus/Pluto in the 8th. Plutonian to the max.
Uranus square my moon. I’m a tinderbox! Haha… burn bridges. Better be careful :mrgreen:

I think l have war drums going. My Mars Pluto is being sexpingtiled by the Mars in Scorp (some synrergy there) and my chart ruler Moon also in Scorp square my natal.

I could rip the head off my multimutiGem friend right at this moment. Just fuqn answer THE question; not 6 things l dont wanta know. FFS. Good thing lm going to Qld for a week.

Plus l had a slippery mutable friend from yonks ago lay me with some weird schizz today. Just as Mystic said in Katscopes

I didn’t kill him. I’m getting a handle on this stuff. Other Martian Plutons know what l mean.

Not feeling anything. Kinda meh also. Haven’t even read my scopes for the year yet (living in denial?). Scorp rising with cap moon. So heavy.

Although my natal Mars is in the 9th house, I’m seeing a lot of travelling this year. Still…I feel like I’ve run the marathon in 2015 and IT’S STILL NOT DONE. Then again, my natal Mars is in Cancer. I’m not sure how more mars energy is going to help.

FYI I have natal Scorpio in the 6th house where my Uranus lives. Uranus is currently transiting my 11th house which is ruled by Aries (16 degrees). Natal Pluto in my 5th in Libra transiting my 8th house in Scorpio. I don’t know what any of it means with Mars in Scorpio energy, all I know is no more shell-bound – the passions need other folks to burn WITH.

I am so fucking ready, yo *strips down naked and surrenders to it all*

The Venus Fly

I have my natal Mars in Taurus in the 11th yet Aries rules that 11th house. And my Mars has JUST begun a progression in my 12th House. All I know is this – I have worked my damn ass off with Saturn in Scorpio on a myriad of levels. I have purged – both inward and outward. I literally began TRAINING in my new vocation on Halloween 2012 and graduated in September 2015 – now it is ON. No more training. No more of this, that and a third. I am here, ready to work the abundance. As far… Read more »

I’m going to need this … so is Cap boyfie by the looks, since he is heavily Pluto influenced. Such a Pluto guy – has been an absolute extremist but I think now completely worn out and looking for some balance. The good thing about Pluto is that it whilst it whacks – and whacks hard – when we refuse to pay attention to the areas in life that need attending to, it also fabulously supports all positive efforts for self correction and fast tracks change with dramatic results. Aligned with Mars I would suspect it’s a power house of… Read more »

Sorry was talking about Pluto mostly as I see Scorpio/Pluto energy as interchangeable. Just to clarify …

SO funny: an hour ago I came across the very last box I possess in two cities of personal stuff that needed to be KonMaried and it was full of like 2007/8 era intuitive/psychic books that were riding on “The Secret”‘s coat tails, as well as very annoying relationship books. Every scrap of paper in that box, 15 books, printed E books, etc, dumped in the trash, over in less than 5 minutes.

Scorpio in my 12th. This all goes MUCH faster with Mars in there than with Saturn.

Definitely feeling it! Mars on my sun/pluto currently so you guessed it, it’s intense. Definitely feeling pumped though. Fear is evaporating in the fire as we speak

Scorp stellium (inc Sun and Mars). Wrote a ‘to do list last night, it is now all done and I have been quietly blasting my way through a report that had been thus far impossible to write. As long as I still get my beauty sleep the next few months are going to be epic. Cos this spiky little Scorp does not need to turn into a Beast.

oh my WOW, so bloody motivated! mars in Scorp has got me shining torches on dark corners of my psyche, actually make that a FLOOD LIGHT. Can’t wait to action all the insights that came with the Dark Moon as predicted by my 27 Power Moons report (Worth. Every. Cent.) Am embracing mutability with glee, in combo with the soul-mining of Mars in Scorp and it’s so amazing. I always felt I had to have one “vibe” or “approach” for every situation, now I realise they are like outfits (to use a fashion metaphor)–you choose it according to the CONTEXT.

aaaagh…after Saturn in my sixth house for 3+ years now it’s Mars. I’ll never get out from under being a work slave and commuting slave for 13 hours a day. Sigh. My chart is like 75% sixth house and I’m so over it.

Except, of course, I’m about to have that Saturn return in my 7th house, so it’s not all sixth!

Yes! Saturn on my moon is making me tired so I need some stud on a dirt bike to chase me around. He can join my muses of Neptune’s sparkly waters, the centaur of my wild heart, and the magical sea goat of Pluto. They can all have a raucous beach party with a nice bonfire. Isn’t Uranus on fire these days? He must be included as well.

I for one am super stoked to have mars in my 5th house for half the year. (4th house for now.) It will be trining my 9th house fishy action, and 5th house-9th house is what this lay-deh needs right now so…. fingers crossed! (Tarot is routinely very supportive of 9th house action of late.)

PiMM Member
Pi

also Mars is ruler of my 10th house Aries, and that is also where Venus lives natally, so if we go with venus = Art and allure, then unless I am missing something (probably the mars square Saturn as it enters my 5th house, haha *gulp*) this could be a really massive, productive year as long as I apply myself.
Saturn in my 6th trine all my Aries things and trine natal saturn Leo probably going to add traction too.
anyway.
thanks mystic for being excellent

Woke up feeling it, and I am SO STOKED. Saturn kicked my ass. Scorpio sun, but that’s it–5 planets in Sag, so I wasn’t sure if I would feel the Mars fire or be stuck in a whole ‘nother round with Saturn. Woke up all action-y…YES.
