Mars in Capricorn   (4 Feb 2024 – 16 Mar 2024)

The Zodiac sign Capricorn stands for ‘hard work, power, and ambition’. The planet Mars stands for ‘action, aggression, anger, arguments, bravery, boldness, courage, determination, drive, energy, weapons, machines, military activities, violence, and will power.  When   Mars transits Capricorn sign, it gets exalted, it gets in Turbo-boost mode and its powers are amplified to the maximum and making it a more influential entity in the horoscope, for better or worse, depending upon the customised astrological chart. It is said, Mars in Capricorn encourages and motivates one to attain his objectives with resolute conviction.


Please remember I mentioned in one of my Blog in 2019 that Pluto transiting in Capricorn, from 2020 to 2040, would set up new business models all over the Globe.       Pluto, with its tremendous impact, mirrors some of the Earth’s and Governments’ significant transformations when in Capricorn.   To my understanding, planets transiting Capricorn are no doubt also get influenced by Pluto’s deep and transformative energy.


Around 10-16 Feb 2024, Mars will pass close to Pluto. This might make us want to make changes and reach our goals even more. This energy can be kind, but it can also be cruel and harmful on a big scale. There is a chance that earthquakes or other problems will happen in the world.
