Feeling fighting mad, perhaps? Is Mars transiting your first house; has it just left your ascendant? If so, your personality is up for the challenge--and you've got a chip on your shoulder that you're ready and willing to dare the world to knock off, too. Asserting yourself is not only the right thing to do, it's expected. And ask me where is Mars in YOUR chart--and rise to the Red Planet's call.
Mars in the 1sthouse (Care of Mr. Robert Hand):
This should be a time of great activity in your life, when you work very hard to further your own interests and assert yourself among others. You have the chance to show the world what you can do now. You come on to others with much more vigor than usual, and you are likely to make a great impression upon them at this time.
If you are insensitive to other people, however, this can be quite a difficult time for all your relationships. Every relationship requires that you bend a bit to the needs and demands of the other person, but you are not especially inclined to do that now. In fact, you will be much better off if you can work independently without worrying about how your actions affect others. With Mars in this house, your personality is much more dominant than usual, but you aren’t interested in having great power over others as long as they don’t try to dominate you. You are perfectly happy as long as you are completely free to do whatever you want and to have your individuality acknowledged by others in whatever you do.
During this time you are much more a fighter for your own rights than usual. You will not let anyone take anything away from you, although you will not be especially irritable or touchy. You will fight if someone attacks you first. Your physical energy level is quite high, and you should be able to do a lot of work during this transit.
If there are strong challenges indicated by other activity via transit to this house, you should be careful of illnesses or accidents as these planets are touched off and ‘activated’ by this transit. This should be a period of upbeat independent activity, when you can work out a lot of problems and accomplish a great deal. This should be a positive time in your life.
