It has been Retrograde in Aquarius since June 26, 2018 and now it has Retrograded far enough back that it has re-entered Capricorn.

This Mars placement is the classic 'fame seeker'. It is not only the 'fame seeker', it operates at the height of materialism. Mars only knows how to be ambitious because there is nothing else it knows except getting ahead and winning. Folks, you are going to become more aware of the growing economy and you will become more materialistic, at least most of you will. Money, materialism, getting ahead, being successful and 'known' for what you do will become more important.
Being that Mars in Capricorn is the height of materialism, status and rank, this transit is very well organized and calculated because it is going after results. For Mars in Capricorn money happens to be the perfect measure stick with which to tally results. If the money is there and it is Good, then this means success. If there is no money there or the pile isn't high enough, the results are not Good. Mars in Capricorn is profoundly results oriented and the results need to be at the top of the food chain, otherwise it's just "losing". Anything less than the best is losing. Do you know where Mars is in your natal chart? Mars in Capricorn results need to be solid, concrete free from holes, leaks or weakness.
Capricorn is a legacy-driven sign. It is very important for Capricorn to leave behind or along their path proof that they even existed. Capricorn wants to leave an indelible mark, and preferably an indelible financial mark on the planet. They want proof that they were here and made a difference. The success gives them the ability to take care of their family even long after they have turned to Light and left the planet. Now throw Mars into the mix and you can see just how success-driven Mars in Capricorn really is. You can't tell a Capricorn not to go for the top of the heap because they will do it with or without your blessing. Who are you? Don't you know who you are talking to? By the way, Capricorn is the diva (female) or prince (male) of the zodiac. You will often hear a Capricorn refer to themselves this way or use the terms god or goddess. They only see themselves this way, there is no other way, why can't you see that and why do they have to keep reminding you? [Keep reading . . . ]
Take a look at these celebrities and think about how they are leaving their indelible mark on the planet. Celebrities with Mars in Capricorn are -- Brad Pitt, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Shakira, Julia Roberts, Christina Aguilera, Sharon Stone, Robert Pattinson, Marlon Brando, Niki Minaj, Albert II Prince of Monaco, Gwen Stefani, Anne Hathaway, Steven Spielberg, Edgar Cayce and Albert Einstein. This whole divorce situation with Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie is just tearing him apart being at the height of his success and the accusations that have followed.
Mars in Capricorn is exalted in this position, which means it is the second strongest placement for the planet. It's often looked as being a 'guest' in this house. Have you ever heard anyone say, "Mi casa, su casa." In Spanish this means, my house is your house. An exaltation is saying, "Welcome, take your shoes off and stay a while. Mars is very comfortable in this placement even though it naturally rules Aries and is the ancient ruler of Scorpio. Saturn is the natural ruler of Capricorn, but Mars in this position will make full use of Saturn's discipline, responsibility and structure (through Capricorn) thereby becoming 'exalted' in this position. Okay, let's just put it this way, IT'S GOOD! When Mars is in Aries, it certainly gets things accomplished but energy is wasted by going too fast. In this position with Capricorn, energy is conserved and put to Good use with decisive action, not impulsive action.
Mars in Capricorn will cause you to pursue your personal desires in a responsible and methodical manner.

This transit will help all us to pursue our personal desires in a responsible and methodical manner. We take a more aggressive approach to our goals and ambitions, and may be react domineering or in a protective way if threatened. We work toward realistic and attainable goals. We will also be productive and motivated when we see tangible results from our efforts. While this transit on the surface may not seem very enthusiastic, I guarantee you that it is motivated and determined. This is a very hard-working transit.
