ARIES - "I AM, THEREFORE I AM."
MARS KEYWORDS: Energy, aggressiveness, action, initiative, impulsiveness, adventurous, physical energy, courage, assertiveness and rash.
Mars moves into Aries on May 24, 2022 until July 5, 2022. That is a long time for Mars to roll through Aries because Mars typically stays in a Sun Sign about 6 weeks. When Mars experiences a Retrograde, like it will in 2020, then it will cause Mars to remain in Aries for just over 6 months.
Folks, life is about to pick up speed because Mars does not like to wait on anyone. I suspect this is going to make for some rambunctious and impatient individuals of all sorts because they, we, us, are going to get tired of waiting on change and will start pushing on those in a position of authority to make some changes. This has everything to do with Cancer and Capricorn. Here's the breakdown.
It's important to remember what signs are impacting other signs. Whenever you see the word SQUARE make a mental note that when there is a SQUARE present, there are two (2) signs separating two (2) other signs. In this case we have Mars moving into Aries. The signs that SQUARE Aries are Cancer and Capricorn. That is because Taurus and Gemini are the two (2) signs that separate Aries and Cancer. And Pisces and Aquarius are the two (2) signs that separate Aries and Capricorn. So there you have it, Aries squares Cancer and Capricorn. Got it?
Now let's break it down even further. What do Cancer and Capricorn have in common. AUTHORITY FIGURES! Who'd of thought, Cancer has an authority figure. Well THE MOTHER! Mother's pretty much dictate what food is in the refrigerator, what color the house will be painted and what doctors the family goes to. Mother's call the shots inside the home and family even if you think dad does. When mama isn't happy, no freakin'body is happy. Am I right? Mother's are the boss inside the home and family for many reasons. Mother's say what goes on inside the home. And interestingly enough, there are some mother's who cannot or will not speak up or stand up inside the home and in that way they still dictate what occurs, even when they choose to do nothing. Just sayin'.
Capricorn is Cancer's direct opposite sign. So the signs that square one sign, are the signs that oppose each other. Holy Wow! While Cancer rules what goes on inside the home, Capricorn rules what goes on outside of the home, in public eye and in the area of career, rank in society and status in the community. Cancer cares about what goes on inside the home, which is childhood and the psychological and biological foundation, and Capricorn rules what the public thinks and who gets public recognition (statues, uh oh) from this point on.
I'll add an extra note here, the sign that is opposite to Aries is Libra. And Libra's square are Capricorn and Cancer. Libra is separate from Capricorn by Scorpio and Sagittarius, and Libra is separated by Virgo and Leo from Cancer. Now all four (4) of those signs are Cardinal Signs as they are the signs that represent the beginning of the seasons - Aries (beginning of spring), Cancer (beginning of summer), Libra (begining of fall) and Capricorn (the beginning of winter). Read more about Cardinal Signs here.
Now look at these last couple of paragraphs with some full eyes. Aries is the individual - me, myself and I. Cancer is the maternal authority figure. Capricorn is the paternal authority figure. Libra is the sign of committed relationships and partnerships, and coupling up with someone else either romantically as in marriage or a business partnership. Do you see this serious dance that is playing out there. LOOK CLOSER! Stop right here and think before you read further. Get up, walk around, grab another cup of coffee and think before you read any further. [Keep reading . . . ]
As Mars enters the sign of Aries, we will see a conjunct to Jupiter in Aries on Sunday - May 29, 2022, we will see Mars in Aries sextile Saturn in Aquarius on Monday - June 27, 2022 and then Mars in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn on Friday - July 1, 2022, which will last until July 13, 2022 in separating degrees.
Remember, Capricorn is Cancer's opposite sign and rules the father, father figures, authority, authority figures, government, military, those in a high position of rank or status in the community, divas, celebrities, public recognition and those who are famous or trying to remain famous (or relevant) for that matter. People have had it. The push back is hard and fierce. The Aries individual says, "YOU DON'T GET TO TREAT ME THIS WAY!"
Even when Mars moves out of Aries and it is no longer squaring Pluto in Capricorn, the Sun in Cancer will oppose Pluto in Capricorn on Tuesday - July 19, 2022. Pluto is the higher-octave of Mars.
So now let's consider what the Aries Ram really is. It's a male bighorn sheep that lives in the mountains. When the ram is in a disagreement, dispute or argument, he will settle that fight by physically ramming his head into his opponents head. Interestingly enough, this isn't a quick process. Rams can ram their heads into each other for hours. So it turns out the impatient ram does have some patience, at least when it comes to WINNING! Rams should not be confused with mountain goats because they are not one in the same. Now this is super-dooper-interesting because mountains goat is Capricorn energy.
Aries and Capricorn find it tough to get along anyway because they SQUARE each other, so this is going to be a rough patch as Mars in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn on July 1, 2022 but begins in applying degrees on May 13, 2022, it hits exact on July 1, 2022 and will last until July 13, 2022 in separating degrees. That's two (2) solid months of Mars squaring Pluto.
Coupling Mars assertion and drive with Aries is actually in its 'home' placement, so Mars is quite comfortable and excited to have Mars on its home turf, but don't piss it off, especially once it gets in the later degrees and begins squaring Pluto in Capricorn from mid-June and into July with the exactness on July 1, 2022.
Mars in Aries is like having a home game instead of an away game. The game is always played harder and stronger on its on home turf and not in front of a strange audience. This gives Mars a lot of confidence, as if Mars need any confidence-building.

Generally, the temper comes quickly, which means anger is dealt with right away as there is little room or time for festering. Gosh, can you remember that? Please remember that. At the same time this does not give you a license to flare-up and throw a temper-tantrum. If you think all of this is about politics, guess again.

Relationships 'can be' exciting with this transit, although keeping up with them can be difficult. This transit is given to impulsive action, and is not known for sticking things through. Although physical energy is great, you can easily lose your initial enthusiasm quickly, especially with a 'new' relationship. Excitement wanes quickly with this transit.
