Mars in Capricorn
This Warrior is a strategist. Capricorn is an earth sign, focused on organization and structure. The Warrior makes things happen and those born with Mars in Capricorn are good at envisioning the steps required to produce a desired result. This Warrior is not fiery nor impulsive, but they are focused, determined and efficient.
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and the shadow side of this position is a resistance to change. These individuals can be overly focused on maintaining an existing structure even if it is no longer useful. There can be an inflexibility and a “rules for rules sake” attitude.
In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mars is Set, the Warrior King, and Capricorn is Khnum, creator of the beings who live on Earth. Khnum creates life on his potter’s wheel and his focus is on creating forms that will best hold and protect life. Whenever we go through a process of transformation and change, Khnum invites us back onto his wheel. He adjusts our ka body so that our energetic structure better meets the changes we are going through. Khnum is a flexible creator, valuing structure while also understanding that the container must reflect the needs of the substance it holds.
Mars/Set will be in the emanation of Capricorn/Khnum from January 22 through March 6. From March 3 - 5, Mars and Venus will align in a conjunction with Pluto before entering Aquarius on March 6. This transit will bring to an end the echo of the 2020 alignments we’ve been collectively experiencing since mid-December. This is a good time to rethink established structures and initiate new forms that better support change.
