Mars in Libra Horoscopes – August 27, 2023
When you think of Mars, a few key phrases might come to mind: Aggression, ambition, motivation, and passion, just to name a few. But did you know that Mars, like each planet in astrology, takes on the qualities of whatever sign it happens to be passing through at any particular moment?
That means that Mars’s ambitious nature can take on the charisma of Leo one month and the hard-working nature of Virgo the next. But today, we’re here to talk about the essence of passionate Mars in the balanced, intellectual, and lighthearted sign of Libra.
What is Mars in Libra?
Before we dive in, it’s important to note that there are two types of Mars in Libra that we’ll be exploring: Mars in Libra in the birth chart and Mars in Libra as a passing transit.
While they may exhibit similar traits, a person with Mars in Libra in their chart will experience this energy year-round, while the rest of us need to soak it up while it’s here.
The Mars in Libra Transit
Mars is a sign that moves relatively quickly, changing signs about once every two months. Mars in Libra places much more emphasis on following your passion, your bliss, and your own personal path. Mars is more compassionate, balanced, more understanding during this transit, meaning that any feelings of aggression that you may have been experiencing lately should subside now.
Although Mars’s temper is more peaceful during this transit, there is still a chance for Mars to bring snappish or irritable energy – especially if you feel stifled or removed from your creative center. It’s important that you focus on a creative outlet to avoid blowing up over small things.
Libra is an Air sign, meaning that it focuses on intellectual thought, creative ideas, and social connections. While Mars was in earthy Virgo, we felt grounded and focused. But in Libra, Mars can feel distracted or caught up in daydreams. Yet, this intellectual energy makes it easier to solve problems and come up with creative solutions.
Finally, Mars is all about willpower, whereas Libra likes to live it up and have a little fun. It might feel more difficult to stick to a strict schedule or focus on a routine during this time, as Libra prefers spontaneity and a carefree approach.
