On December 13th, warrior planet Mars moves out of Scorpio and into freedom-loving Sagittarius.
This is bringing new energy to us, and it is one that is very karmic in nature. What you have reaped, you shall sow.
In Scorpio, Mars exalted all forms of passion—both the negative and positive kind! There was a lot of soul-searching with this transit, a lot of transformation, and a lot of determination.
Some of it may have been uncomfortable as we were forced to face aspects of ourselves and our lives that many of us would rather not—but such transformations lead to our better well-being in the future.
It is in Sagittarius that Mars is now able to rock and roll with karma. Here we are able to put our plans into action as the benevolent influence of Jupiter—Sagittarius’s ruler— beams down on us. We are able to manifest the reality we want with the highest intentions now that we are clear about what it is that we want.

Love Horoscopes for Your Zodiac Sign
Here are your personal rapid-fire horoscopes for each zodiac sign for when fiery Mars enters the mutable sign of the Fire signs, Sagittarius.
This is a time of good karma for you, Aries, and if you have been working hard to build trust and appreciation in your relationships, then this is going to pay off!
As the Cardinal sign of the Fire signs, it’s also an important time for self-love. You may find yourself having to take the lead when it comes to setting boundaries. Too much time together can be suffocating, so know when to put your foot down, Aries.
Similarly, if single, this is a good time to send out the feelers and see what match lies on the horizon.
This is a powerful time of self-discovery for you, Taurus, and it is likely that past relationships will come rising to the surface, nudging you to pay attention to whatever needs closure.
Prepare for some dramatic showdowns, but rest assured that anything which crops up at this time is for the highest good and will help you receive the love and warmth that you deserve. Keep an eye open for the admirers—they’ll just come flocking in!
Commitment is a powerful theme for you during this Sagittarius Mars, Gemini.
If you have been non-committal in any way, this looks set to come to a head. If single, you may feel an increased urge to settle down and find the one. Trust that everything will come to you at the time it is ready to!
This is also a wonderful time for delving into all kinds of romantic fantasies as your creativity levels are especially high, so if you feel an urge to pick up that latest romance novel or snuggle under the covers to watch the romance flick, indulge yourself!
You’ll probably feel like venturing out into the realm of romance, Cancer.
There’s a distinct vibe of adventure about you during this period. Just be sure not to get carried away! You may find yourself landing in hot water or filled with regrets further down the line.
On the other hand, for single Cancers out there, this is an exciting time to meet potential partners, so don’t do the opposite and completely clam up either. For those already in relationships, exciting times are ahead, especially in the bedroom, so get ready for the unexpected!
You’ll probably find yourself reminiscing quite a bit during this Mars in Sagittarius, Leo, and you may find yourself thinking a lot about “the good old days.”
“What happened?” you may ask yourself. However, this is a time for looking forward, not backward.
If you want something (or should I say someone!), then it is time to make your move. That doesn’t necessarily mean going straight in for the kill. It could be focusing on yourself instead and becoming the best you can be.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself sporting a new haircut or wardrobe during this Mars in Sagittarius!
Your energy is higher now, Virgo, and you may find yourself contemplating more on the value of relationships at this time. Not to say you don’t at other times, but there’s something about this transit that brings forth your sense of appreciation even stronger than before.
As a result, don’t be surprised if you find yourself pouring your heart out on several occasions. It may come as a surprise to those close to you, but for you, Virgo, it is a method of cleansing your wonderful soul!
The truth is, it’s mainly about you during this transit, Libra!
Where love is concerned, “the greatest love of all” is happening to you, and self-love is what it’s all about. Of course, you’ve still got plenty of love for your loved ones, but self-nurture and self-care are high on your priority list during this transit.
If you have been hurt in love, it is a time of healing and regeneration for you. Whether you are in a relationship or not, the love you have for yourself will only grow stronger, so follow the wisdom of your soul, Libra!
You’re probably going to feel pretty spontaneous during this transit, Scorpio, and splashing out on a loved one seems to be on the agenda. However, this can also mark a time of explosive altercations for you, both on a sexual level and a mental level.
Mars in Sagittarius brings out your adventurous nature, so prepare for intense moments in the bedroom and also moments where you and a loved one will clash, possibly over the most trivial things.
One crystal recommended for you during this transit is sunstone, as this is especially helpful for you at this time.

You’re even more attractive than usual, Sagittarius, so don’t be surprised if the admirers come flocking!
As you are feeling bolder during this transit, you may take a leap of faith towards a love interest that you were previously in two minds about. Otherwise, if committed, prepare for a few surprises on the way, which will either make or break.
Right, things have undoubtedly been pretty hectic and revealing lately in matters of the heart, but it’s time to give you a little wind-down time to help you relax.
New, fresh ideas are on the way, and when it comes to relationships, you may find yourself turning things over entirely. It’s time to plan—plan for those boundaries, plan for the changes you wish to see and plan a strategy that works for you, which lets you know when to take action and when not to.
Ultimately, it’s all about having faith in yourself, Capricorn—so trust yourself!
This is a time of powerful karma for you, Aquarius, and most likely, your sense of love and compassion is going to spread far and wide.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself championing social justice causes or helping the needy and underdog.
When it comes to matters of the heart, you may feel an urge to reveal your feelings for another—not just the feelings, but the degree of them. Go with what your heart tells you, Aquarius—it doesn’t lie.
Let your light shine, Pisces, but be careful where you shine it!
You may feel compelled towards greater heartfelt acts of kindness during this transit which is wonderful. Just be sure that the odd con artist isn’t trying to get the better of you—and this includes matters of the heart!
Trust your intuition—if something seems too good to be true, it usually is. Past memories may come rising to the surface, especially regarding past relationships and the impact they left on you. This is a karmic time for you and a time for healing, too.
