Mars will transit the royal sign of Leo August 8th, 2019 until September 24th, 2019.
This placement is favorable for the Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius rising sign persons who should be feeling some extra fire, energy, ambition, and competitiveness during this transit.
Mars is a fiery planet and Leo is a fire sign. 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.
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 Leo 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.
