“To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)

On Saturday, December 7th, Warrior planet Mars moved into the sign of Libra the Scales. Libra represents the important relationships in our lives. It is a compassionate sign that defaults to the consideration and well being of others, and sometimes at the expense of personal needs and desires. The energy of Mars, however, is primarily concerned with self actualization. Focus on independent initiatives, or fighting to the death if thwarted, is Mars’ forte. It’s easy, then, to see why Mars in Libra is somewhat of a mismatch, especially since Mars technically rules the sign of Aries in Astrology, which is Libra’s opposite. How events unfold as a result here on planet Earth should be interesting, and we might as well sit tight for the show because Mars will remain in this area of the Zodiacal wheel until July 2014!

Libra is anything BUT confrontational. This is a sign that prefers fairness and equality; the saying, “make love not war” describes Libra to a T (and was coined by Libran John Lennon). However, Mars’ position here may have an adverse effect. Relationships will be highlighted, but with a push/pull energy that requires walking a fine line between “how do I get what I want” and “how do I support my partner.” Keep in mind that your “partner” could be in business, familial or personal, but the emphasis will be on relations with anyone of value or significance.

There’s nothing wrong with asserting your will in a relationship, but there is a difference between being assertive and being aggressive. You can’t expect your partner to be fully amenable to every demand (which is typical of Libra as they tend to give too much), and if you play the Libra role in your relationship (or you are a Libra yourself), you’re bound to experience some resentment. The message of this transit is to pursue (Mars) compromise (Libra) in reaching shared goals. Ultimately, your happiness and the freedom to maintain self interests in a relationship are essential, just as it is for the other person.

Check your horoscopes below for this week, and be sure to read for your Ascendant sign as well.

On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at tracey@randomnessofrudy.com.

Aries: Mars in your opposite sign means you’ll be completely focused on the important others in your life. If you’re single, prepare yourself for a number of opportunities to do the mating ritual. If you’re already taken, you may find yourself bending over backwards to keep up with your partner (and you won’t take it lightly!) Compromise will be necessary in your closest relationships. This could be in business, romance or with a relative. Shared goals and desires will be the new norm. Your 2014 Forecast Reading serves as a kick start to your year ahead!

Taurus: You may soon realize that not only does your day-to-day schedule increase with activities, but you’ll have to keep things loose and be flexible in order to accommodate others. This is a great time to partner with folks who can help you accomplish your goals, whether you take on a gym buddy or hire a personal assistant. How you are able to work with others and still manage your regular routines will be important. Of course, this will involve some adjusting on your part, Taurus.

Gemini: A little fun and romance never hurt, and lucky for you, you’ve got eight months to enjoy the thrills! That’s right; between now and July 2014, Mars will be in the sign of Libra influencing the area of your life that has to do with creativity and recreational pursuits. You have the green light to indulge your curiosities and take on a more playful attitude. This energy also affects your mojo, Gemini. If you want to get pregnant, you’ve got good stars. If not, chill with the Don Juan charms. Your 2014 Forecast Reading serves as a kick start to your year ahead! This reading can be done in person or over the phone.

Cancer: Home and family is where it’s at, Cancer. You can expect to be spending more time with relatives long after the holiday season. This transit of Mars will influence your domestic sector. Some of you may welcome a new addition, rent out a spare room, or invest in major renovations; you’ll be busy on the home front. This energy also affects your emotional well being. You may find that you’re more expressive with your needs and wants. Just watch those mood swings, dear Crab. Your 2014 Forecast Reading serves as a kick start to your year ahead! This reading can be done in person or over the phone. Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for more information.

Leo: Under the influence of Mars in Libra, I encourage you to get out and explore your ‘hood. You may meet some wonderful folks that live right down the street, and the connection could be inspiring. Go for walks, get to know your environment and enjoy the locals. You may very well discover a new place you want to live, and a move could be in store by summer of 2014. This is a lighthearted influence that will increase all interactions, and maybe bring a couple of short trips.  Your 2014 Forecast Reading serves as a kick start to your year ahead!

Virgo: This is a wonderful time to increase your financial security, Virgo. If you’re looking for additional sources of income, you may find it easy to identify folks who would be willing to invest in you or your product. Don’t underestimate your value and worth to others. You may be surprised by the fact that what you have to offer (in the way of a service, security or simply by being you) is needed and sought out. As always, pace yourself with this energy and enjoy the ride. You deserve it. Your 2014 Forecast Reading serves as a kick start to your year ahead! This reading can be done in person or over the phone. Visit www.randomnessofrudy.com for more information.

Libra: Mars in your sign may very well be a blessing in disguise. You have to admit, Libra, you’re not the most straightforward person. In fact, you never really come right out and ask for what you want as much as you convince others to give you what you want with your charms. That’s a neat gift and works most of the time. But often it leaves others feeling manipulated and used. Mars will help you avoid certain passive aggressive patterns. Use this energy wisely, and you’ll benefit the most.

Scorpio: With Mars in Libra, you’ll be digging deep to understand how you prevent growth in your relationships. Clearly, there are some psychological patterns or repressed trauma that keeps you from being more open and present with significant partners (either at work or in your personal life). This transit asks that you merge without sabotaging the efforts of those close. How can you release the hidden aspects of you, for the sake of others? You’ve got eight months to work this out.

Sagittarius: This is an opportune time for you to get out and network, Sagittarius. You’ve been busy on the career front these past few weeks, and now that you’ve made some headway; it’s time to use your contacts to your advantage. It’s wish making time – not just because of the holidays, but because Mars is influencing your dreams and hopes for the future. These next few months are a prime time to bring some of your deepest desires to fruition. Let others help you along the way.  Your 2014 Forecast Reading serves as a kick start to your year ahead!

Capricorn: Work, work and more work is what’s in store for you, Capricorn, over the next few months. I’m not sure whether or not you’ll see this as good news (some of you may welcome the break from so much home and family stuff!). But no matter your perspective, I can tell you that you won’t be working alone. This will be a career boosting experience where colleagues and higher ups will be watching and promoting your skills. Remember to play nice, though. It’s all about teamwork. Your 2014 Forecast Reading serves as a kick start to your year ahead! This reading can be done in person or over the phone.

Aquarius: Soon, you will be on an inspirational high, Aquarius! Your need to expand your world views and apply them to your everyday life will be insatiable. So, go ahead and book that meditation and yoga retreat. Or begin planning your sojourn along the Camino Trail. You’ll be amazed by how the resources of others are just as effective in helping you on your own personal journey. But remember to share your findings and insights too. Doing so will surely enhance your experience. Your 2014 Forecast Reading serves as a kick start to your year ahead! This reading can be done in person or over the phone.

Pisces: It seems money has been a primary focus for you, Pisces. Either you’re making investments, securing your own resources or identifying resources for others. This trend continues with Mars in the sign of Libra; don’t be surprised if you come across folks who share your dreams and vision regarding certain joint ventures and projects. This could also be energy that unfolds in a personal relationship, where you find that shared intimacy becomes the norm. Be open, and take a chance.
