Taking action with strong conviction to do what is important to you should go well if you don’t veer away from aiming for what you want to achieve. Destroying what could get in the way of a process of transformation should be fairly straight-forward, if you’re passionate about your objectives. The effect of personal psychoanalysis can give you the energy to gain power in your life.

Careful and uncompromising planning for initiating projects that demand discipline and a relentless course of action can be implemented now. The results you want to achieve won’t arrive in an instant, but will arrive at a steady rate. As long as you don’t give in to the tendency to work until exhaustion sets in, the harder you work the higher the rewards and satisfaction can be expected. If you have to be assertive in matters that require the use of your expertise in a particular subject, then you should be able to gain attention from those who will benefit from your knowledge.

Taking action based on what you are passionate about gives you an opportunity to show your sensitive side without it being seen as a weakness. It’s possible you could become active in assisting those who need a helping hand, but only if you think they deserve it. Assertiveness in clearing the way through subtle boundaries that now appear to be an illusion, will provide clarity where there was a lack of certainty and direction. Concentrate on how your instinct can guide you to get the best out of this transit.

Make the most of opportunities to socialize with people who you admire due to their status if you want to climb the social ladder. To connect with them you will have to be assertive and in control; wallflowers will not appeal to them. For those who are dating it could be to their advantage to show their seriousness about commitment in a relationship, and to share their passions. For those already in a relationship or marriage, making an effort to find more time for their sex life will reinforce stability for the bond they have with each other.

Patience and perseverance brings the best results, even the toughest tasks can have a positive outcome by increasing your mental resilience where you would normally experience anxiety or self-doubt. Overall it’s a great transit for in-depth analysis and psychoanalysis.

If constructive criticism needs to be given, now is the time to do so. Sharing what you have learned through experience with those who seek your assistance won’t be easily forgotten by those who can learn from what you’re willing to teach them. Teacher and student interactions are improved by the influence of this transit as long as the student is taught a subject they are passionate about. For most of us the ability to concentrate on important tasks that are usually mentally demanding is enhanced. Clearing paperwork, learning new skills or in-depth research can be very productive at the moment.

Imagination and creativity are inspired by emotional responses to events where sitting on the fence is not an option. Fortunately this all or nothing approach can work out quite well, so there is no grey area about what is felt and why. Some people will find their dreams are exceptionally intense or surreal. Great sympathy is offered to those who are struggling or in genuine need of assistance, but those who try to manipulate or deceive by pulling on the heart strings won’t get away with it.

Intense and rash action taken at random or out of the blue could have unexpected results for better or worse. So, if this is the route you want to take make sure you do your research first. There may be an explosive release of tension if there has been too much control and restraint for the motivation of maintaining stability. It’s true that ground can be broken during this transit, but this won’t be without a few shocks along the way.

Mars enters Scorpio 19th November 2019.

Mars enters Scorpio at 7.41 am GMT 19th November 2019.

The influence and strength of Mars can be intense and easily focused. Action is not taken lightly with important issues; it is initiated with strong conviction and endurance regardless of whether it’s for a good or not so good reason. Whilst Mars is transiting Scorpio this can be a great opportunity to take the initiative to act on what you are passionate about. If there is any opposition to be dealt with it’s likely you have enough strength to fight your corner; your enthusiasm for your passion in life isn’t easily diminished. On the negative side, whether personally or in worldwide events, when anger is expressed the odds are it has more potential to be vindictive and destructive. Some individuals are willing to be ruthless and will take no prisoners.

A straight-forward and tough stance in communication is easy to do in order to clear away uncertainty and confusion. Making time to think about what you ideally dream of in your life can be helpful in creating plans to make them happen.
