Your key planet Mars is encouraging you to pay attention to the details of your own life; however, this can be rather annoying. Although you are more apt to initiate action first and work out a plan as you go along, it's helpful to move in a methodical manner in order to curb your frustration and increase your productivity. No matter how scattered your energy feels today, it's time to ground yourself in your daily routine.
Over the next few weeks you have an opportunity to express yourself in more creative ways but there is a catch. You must treat your playful expressions as if they were part of your daily routine, but this doesn't mean you can drop your responsibilities to go off and make music or write poetry. Instead, just set aside a little time every day to focus on more artistic endeavours. What begins as a distraction will gradually gain in importance over the days ahead.
You're usually open to receiving input wherever it comes from. However, you must be selective now that Mars tells you to utilise only the most reliable data. Be careful about what you say and be sure to reference your sources if you are quoting someone else. Most importantly, consider the overall usefulness of whatever you intend to do before doing it.
Surround yourself with your best friends and don't be afraid to lose yourself in the spontaneous activities of the day. Although you must still be discreet about what you say, it's probably better to share what you're feeling rather than keeping it bottled up any longer. It will actually feel good to be a part of any communication process when you are in the company of people you can trust.
It's essential to focus on building your own self-worth, both financially and psychologically. However, your fires of inspiration may be dying down now. It's not the end of the road but rather a transition into a time when considered actions have more impact than the obvious and noisy ones. This is a time for you Lions to do things in a very basic and practical manner.
You might feel like your ambitious plans are being thwarted as aggressive Mars continues his tour of duty in your sign. However, don't take any setback too personally. This transit is less about you than it is about the "big" versus "little" dilemma. Your frustration levels may rise but if you can hold your horses while attending to the details, success will be yours.
Your energy may be hidden from others, but it runs deep over the next few weeks and this can present some problems. You might not be able to express your anger directly, so others can't tell what's really going on for you. You tend to avoid direct confrontations more than usual now and you could even feel like going on a retreat. Don't let your ego run the show, as your happiness doesn't depend upon recognition. Do the hard work behind the scenes and get ready for what comes next.
You receive much-needed support from your friends now, allowing you to focus your attention on what is important rather than being distracted by the noise of circumstances. Don't take your eye off your goals, as your long-term success depends upon consistent concentration at this time. Keep moving in the same direction, even if it seems that you're not gaining ground, because you really are.
Your energy level skyrockets now, giving you more oomph, zest and pizzazz in everything you do. Your adrenaline shoots through your system and because you are burning somewhat hotter than usual, you could come across as more aggressive than others expect. If you aren't careful, this can lead to petty ego disputes or conflicts. Focus on putting the power of Mars to work toward accomplishing your goals.
You're entering a highly focused phase when your ability to diligently apply yourself at work is at its peak. Even if you don't have one specific task you must finish, you're now able to get more things done. The danger is that you can become so enamoured with your work that you lose track of the lighter side of life. Set aside time for some plain old fun; you'll actually accomplish more if you do.
This is an intense period as you delve into the mysteries of your emotions. These might not be familiar energies to you and you may resist the journey if other people's agendas conflict with yours. There really isn't much you can do about these annoyances except to keep them in your awareness. Your discomfort will pass without ill effect, unless you make it into something bigger than necessary. Don't push these experiences away; the treasures you encounter now make your life richer.
You have more reason than ever to sort out your relationship tangles. It's easier to cooperate with others now, especially if you are working toward a common goal. But don't try to do it alone, even if there is an interpersonal conflict brewing. If you do find yourself in a disagreement today, make sure it isn't just a silly misunderstanding. Working out the surface differences enables you to meet on common ground.
