Astrological Forecast: Mars in Libra

Mars transits the sign of Libra from November 10th, 2019-December 25th, 2019.

When Mars is strong by placement in the birth chart and by transit it denotes action, passion, ambition, physical strength, goal-directed energy, the power to carry through, courage, bravery, heroism, competitiveness and a fighting spirit.

This placement is especially favorable for Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius rising signs who should be feeling some extra fire, energy, ambition, and competitiveness during this transit. 

Mars is weak in degrees until November 18th, 2019 and then again from December 18th-January 2nd, 2020.  The military, police, surgeons, athletes, realtors, executives, engineers, construction workers and firefighters should get extra rest

Remedies for Mars: Mars is a benefic (good) planet for all rising signs except Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio. These rising signs should help men who are like brothers on Tuesday and listen to chants for Hanuman on Tuesdays. They should also avoid wearing burning red colors or red coral gemstones.  

For all other rising signs it is safe and favorable to wear burning red colors, red coral, or the mystical pendant known as the kavach to strengthen Mars.  

The following information provides an overview of the impact of Mars in Virgo for each rising sign (as per Vedic Astrology), and is not based on the Sun sign as used in Western Astrology.

Additional information can be provided by overlaying the transits of the planets on your individual horoscope.
