Mars in Leo on DrStandley.com

MARS KEYWORDS: Energy, aggressiveness, competitive, decisive, action, initiative, impulsiveness, adventurous, quick, rapid, physical energy, headstrong, courage, assertiveness and rash.

Mars is in Leo from July 20, 2017 until September 5, 2017. This is a long transit, which will help you get an enormous amount of work or projects accomplished.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars (along with the Sun) is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Depending on the sign that Mars is in, it will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Did you know that Mars in Leo is some seriously powerful energy? In fact, this is the kind of energy boxers want because it packs a powerful punch. In fact, this energy packs such a powerful punch, that with one punch the native with this in their natal chart can knock out their opponent in one punch. This energy can also kill someone in one punch. No kidding! Mars in Leo is the physically strongest and emotionally strong-willed placement. It is also the most confident placement. Don't tell or bet someone with Mars in Leo that they can't do something, because you will embarrass yourself and lose. In fact, I always say, "Those with Mars in Leo in their chart are so physically strong that they can put a couch on their back and walk up a flight of stairs." My daughter always says this about me because it's True. I have Mars in Leo in my natal chart and the amount of physical strength I have is a bit shocking.

Mars in Leo is strong-willed, determined and does not understand the meaning of the word "can't". In fact, those with Mars in Leo in their natal chart (like myself) cannot even relate to that word. In the movie, "Taken 2" there is a scene where Liam Neesom and his daughter are in a car speeding through a town, she's driving and he's yelling at her where to turn. She keeps saying, "I can't, I can't" several times. Oh that scene just burns me. I almost had to mute the TV because I absolutely cannot stand hearing those words from anyone. It's more like you won't, not you can't because YOU (anyone) can do anything, if you really want to. I found myself yelling at the TV, "Yes you can! Drive you dumb-ass or you will both die!" Oh it just burned me!

Naturally I'm partial to Mars in Leo (because it is my natal Mars placement) and you should be partial too because this placement brings about incredible self-confidence and in turn inspires self-confidence in others. I have to admit, if there is one thing I have, that is confidence and I will only take a chance on me and roll the dice one me, because I am a sure thing. Now listen, Leo has a huge ego and this needs to be checked or this energy will not work for you. Believe me, I know! LOL! Self-confidence is one thing, an egomaniac is another. I'll be honest, when I first started this website I was all up in myself and what I knew (intellectually) and it being "DrStandley.com". It was about a year after I started the website that I had to change my direction. I had a huge ego check from an intuitive hit, which I call a DLG ™  (Download from God ™ ) that said the site was to be named after me but it was not about me. It wasn't about me being powerful or the all-knowing, it was about me empowering others. HUGE DIFFERENCE! My name was to be 'used' not 'misused'. Incidentally, I have a Moon in Capricorn that says, "I use therefore I am." So my name is 'used' but the website is not about me, it's about YOU! The best thing any of you can do with this Mars in Leo placement is keep that ego in check and use your power to empower. My purpose was to take my confidence (and I do have a load of confidence) and in turn motivate and stimulate others to have confidence (Mars in Leo). It wasn't about me at all. That's when this site turned into being about YOU! It is all about you. I am to use my power to empower. It's not about me getting power and being more powerful and having all the knowledge on any one subject. WRONG! This is why I have to humble my Mars in Leo and use it as an example to show you I have been there and done that. This is also why in many Daily Messages I have used myself and those humbling experiences to show you that I have been where you are now and it is possible to move that mountain.


I'm telling you folks, this is a powerful placement and when channeled appropriately you can move mountains. I always say if you want a mountain moved, then call a Leo. Mars in the sign of Leo and a simple nudge of the shoulder will knock down that mountain. Like I said, this is the kind of energy that boxers want and at that same time, one swift punch can actually kill someone. That's why those with Mars in Leo SHOULD NEVER hit anyone. EVER! I am absolutely serious. With this much energy involved in a placement, the proper channeling is vital.

Mars in Leo can also get you into some serious shape, muscle-wise! You never see a weak muscle-atrophied lion. Okay, maybe the weak brother 'Scar' in The Lion King but that is it. Lions are strong and muscular. In fact, those of us with Mars in Leo usually weigh more than we look (sometimes by 10 or 15 lbs) because our bodies are dense with muscle tissue. Mars in Leo natives develop muscle very easy. For this reason, during Mars in Leo it is a fantastic time to get your body STRONG, not to mention when the Sun enters Virgo on August 22, 2017, which rules your health, hygiene and fitness you want to be ready. Dang peeps, this is the time to get your strong body back! You can actually melt the fat away and be left with muscle. Folks, if you use this Mars in Leo placement from now until September 5, 2017 then you will see physical results. Use a calorie counter app on your phone or adopt a new lifestyle change and you will likely stick to it during this Mars in Leo transit simply because of the amount of willpower this transit carries. If you needed willpower, then this is the transit to use. MARS IN LEO!

Mars in Leo is extremely self-motivated and doesn't really need to be scared, prompted, pushed or challenged into action. Mars in Leo is self-motivated and action-oriented from the moment the eyes open. BAM! People often ask me, "How do you do it all and where do you get the energy?" My response is always, "Mars in Leo baby!" I'm hyperactive, energetic, self-motivated, stronger than some men (no kidding) and I get more accomplished by 7:00 AM than most people do in a day. It's a gift, called Mars in Leo. If you do not have Mars in Leo in your Natal Chart or Solar Return, then you can grab this gift right now and work it like you own it. This placement 'opportunity' will be available to you until September 5, 2017. That's enough time to get your project not only off the ground but in the mail or displayed with a big sign on it or the website published or that extra weight (fat) off of you. Imagine how much you will inspire others when you are doing your thing. Do your thing folks, do not hold back, humble yourself and keep your ego in check. And don't forget we will experience a New Moon in Leo on Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 5:46 AM EDT at 00 degrees 44 minutes. Mars in Leo makes that New Moon in Leo double-delicious and double powerful or should I say, "WILLPOWER-FULL!"

And you know what, I sure as hell would not be using this energy to clean out another closet and call that moving a mountain. Nooooooooooooooo! In fact, I would let the dishes go and let the vacuum cleaner sit in the closet while that 'thing' (desire, passion) gets my undivided attention. All of those miscellaneous chores can be distractions during a time like this. Stay on your game, stay focused and move that mountain once and for all. Now get off your ass and go do it!!!
