Mars in Scorpio Tarotwise. 12/9/17 – 1/26/18

How is MARS IN SCORPIO interpreted by Tarot cards and archetypes? What readings will help you make the most of this transit? Mars in Scorpio transit is from December 9, 2017 to January 26, 2018.

 In Tarot Mars = Emperor. Scorpio = Death, cards from the Hudes Tarot.  The Emperor Mars will be transformed and go through some metamorphosis during his stay in Death / Endings sign of Scorpio. How will you experience your aggressive, assertive, pointed and even violent energies by the end of this period? You have the opportunity to dig deep into these parts of yourself, make them conscious and heal them.

This Emperor/Mars energy can be a brute force that wants to hold onto power over others no matter what. But this Emperor can also be activating and encouraging. Mars/Emperor is what gets you out the door to pursue goals and do what needs to be done. Think of it as testosterone.

Mars in the sign of  Scorpio is driven to dive deep and understand motivations, to heal whatever gets in the way of fully living and to take the time to analyze and deeply feel this vital and dangerous energy within – this could be the drive to succeed, to fight, to kill, to conquer, to lead, to inspire. Scorpio is represented by the Death card which means all that is not vital and meaningful must be relinquished so that the new vision and path will take root. There’s no room for the trivial or superficial when dealing with Scorpio / Death. 

When the Emperor enters the realm of the Death card and lingers for almost 2  months there must be a significant change in how he rules, mobilizes others, and pursues ambitions. One thing’s for sure – the Mars energy has to change and grow up. Emperor Mars could shape shift into a frightening dictator. But hopefully and more likely, the raw testosterone-y energy can become that of an achiever, wise leader, can-do person and encouraging coach. 

The Emperor archetype within is already very focused and determined but will become even more so and be dead serious about setting goals and doing everything it takes to achieve them. How can you best use this potency?  What do you most want to achieve? Step One: Get to know the deepest motivations underlying your goals and intentions. As you look at this, you may want to change or modify your goals, be sure your motivations are worthy of the effort.

Examine the roots of your anger, ambition and aggression. Do you want to handle them in a different way? Imagine if you were the President, what would be the strong, wise way to handle this kind of power? Petty and vindictive? I hope not! 

The house and sign of your natal Mars and the house that Scorpio rules reveal where this will be the most intense for you personally.  It’s time to say yes to approaching and exploring the volcano within, for immense gifts are there. Don’t be surprised if memories of dark and destructive feelings, arguments and harshness arise during these next 7 weeks. They’re ready to be healed and integrated in a useful way
