Making the best of it

Mars, the Astrological symbol of individual initiative, aggression, and pioneering action, is not all that comfortable in the soft, accommodating sign of Libra -- but mankind may breathe a bit easier during this passage.

When Mars is in Libra, attitudes become sociable, charming, and courteous. People are looking for partners, allies, and team mates to help further their aims. A more cooperative, appearance-conscious tone prevails. Popularity moves up a notch on the scale of values ... and people put real attention into being "nice," inoffensive, and helpful. They are concerned with harmony, "getting along," and being equitable and fair.

Taking account of others

The self-assertion that is Mars' trademark becomes indirect, watered down, and oblique. Other people's needs take priority over personal desires. So does having peace in your relationships -- at least in public. In fact, having the "correct appearance" in public is a big deal right now. So, people try to be refined, urbane, well-mannered, courteous, and polished.

There is special support for artistic pursuits and cultural events, and extra involvement in matters of justice, legal proceedings, negotiation, arbitration, diplomacy ... or other issues involving laws, rules, and equity. There is marked interest in associations, contracts, and legal alliances ... including marriage.

Under stress with Mars in Libra, people are emotionally demanding, neglectful of others' needs, patently selfish and uncooperative, greedy, and exploitive, and their ambitions turn manipulative, superficial, self-serving, and vain
