How Mars Moving Into Aquarius In November 2018 Affects All Zodiac Signs' Horoscopes, Based On Vedic Astrology
Zodiac, Self

According to your Vedic astrological birth chart.

According to the calculations of Vedic astrology (which differ from those of Western astrology by almost an entire sign), Mars moves into the sign of Aquarius on November 5, 2018, where it will stay until December 22.

This is a big deal that will have an affect on the horoscopes of all zodiac signs for several reasons.

Mars is one of the planets that usually moves quickly through the signs of the zodiac, typically staying in one sign for only six weeks at a time. In the last six months, however Mars was direct, and then retrograde, and then direct again, causing it to "hang out" in one sign — the sign of Capricorn — the whole time.

For some people this has been great ... and for others, this has been exhausting!

Astrologically speaking, all of the planets have potentially positive and negative qualities.

Mars is known for many positive things, such as action, motivation, courage, logic, drive, ambition, and strength.

But in ancient Roman mythology, Mars was known as the God of War, and the more negative aspects of Mars can bring restlessness, anger, harsh speech, sudden upheavals, insomnia, and anxiety.

Mars makes us do things without thinking, get into accidents or arguments, and suffer sudden splits or breaks with friends and loved ones. It can also make us get carried away by passion, only to later wish we hadn't.

If you're into astrology, you may think of the planet Saturn as the biggest "bad guy" planet in the solar system.

Saturn is considered the greatest teacher of the planets, because he causes us to suffer so that we'll be willing to do the hard work of fixing or correcting whatever isn't working in our lives.

But you may be surprised to learn that it's not really Saturn, but Mars that's actually the greatest "bad guy" of the sky.

In fact, two of names Mars is known by in Vedic astrology mean "cruel-eyed" and "cruel-sighted."

He's one of the "krura grahas" or "cruel planets", along with the Sun, Saturn, the waning Moon, the North and South Nodes of the Moon (referred to as Rahu and Ketu), and Mercury when it's with one of these others.

That's opposed to the "saumya grahas" or "gentle planets" — Venus, Jupiter, the waxing or growing Moon, and Mercury when it's alone or with one of these "good guys."

The energy of cruel planets bring their lessons in ways that are more sudden, harsh, harmful, and disruptive than those of the gentle planets, which are felt as helpful, supportive, and nurturing.

So while Saturn slowly brings you to your knees, Mars gives you a quick kick in the behind.

Now, before I depress and scare you too much, assisting Mars in making you jumpy and unable to sleep at night, let me tell you some good news.

One of the other, more common names for Mars is "Mangala," which means lucky or auspicious.

This is because when Mars is on your side, you're likely to experience tremendous progress. Instead of kicking your butt, Mars will help help you kick butt!

Powerful Martial people are usually very successful due to being decisive, confident, and courageous. In my own life, I can trace all of my greatest professional and financial gains to the influence of Mars.

Before I explain how Mars will impact each of the signs while it's in Aquarius from November 5 through December 22, please keep in mind that I am only highlighting what one planet is doing right now. As is always the case in astrology, throughout this time you'll have all kinds of other influences going on as well.

This is just one piece of the complicated astrological puzzle of your life, so please don't get too upset or too excited by what I'm about to share.

In order to understand how Mars will affect you according to your zodiac sign, please take a moment to use this astrology birth chart calculator based on Vedic calculations.

Your results will look something like this.

Read the predictions below for your Sun sign, Moon sign and Ascendant (aka rising) sign, found in the planetary details box on your chart. They all have some impact, even if the results seem to contradict, but give the information related to your Moon sign the most emphasis.

If you don't know your exact birth time when you enter your information in the calculator, beware.

Moon signs changes every two and a half days, and it may have changed the day you were born. This means that without a precise birth time, your chart may show the wrong Moon sign.

So please don't guess. If you don't know the time of your birth, try the calculator more than once, checking off midnight at the beginning of the day, "00:00" or midnight at the end of the day, or "23:59." If the Moon stays in same sign for each result, you don't need your specific birth time in order to identify your Moon sign.

The same goes for your rising sign. It changes every 90 minutes to two hours, so if you're unsure of your birth time, disregard your rising sign entirely and just read the results for your Sun sign.

Since Mars is a planet that relates mainly to pursuing goals and achievements, the following predictions have more to do with work issues and finances than romantic relationships, although Mars can cause fights, as I've said, and also brings some zing to your sexy time (wink, wink).

Here's how Mars moving into Aquarius on November 5 will affect each of the zodiac signs until December 22, according to Vedic astrology.

Aries (April 14-May 15)

Mars has been helping your career and this good mojo continues as it moves into your 11th house, one of the most excellent positions for gains, acknowledgement, and the successful completion of all projects.

This is excellent for getting a much longed-for promotion or higher position, but watch for tensions with friends. They're probably just jealous of all your good fortune, so be kind.

Taurus (May 15 - June 15)

For the past few months, Mars has been bringing the whammy, but it’s moving into your 10th house, a very strong position to help uplift your career. If you're self-employed, you'll have more profits. If you work for others, you'll be given more positive attention and opportunities. Ask for a raise, or leave a boring job for a better one.

If you don't have a career, you may find yourself far more productive with your home and family life, and more engaged in the world.

Gemini (June 15 - July 16)

Mars will be in your 9th house, and this can cause financial losses. Be conservative with investments and expenses, and watch out for troubles with authority figures on the work front, as well as in your family. Put off any challenging confrontations or legal battles until later.

This is a good time for foreign travel and spiritual pursuits, especially for finding a spiritual teacher or group.

Cancer (July 16 - August 17)

Woohoo! Mars is leaving your 7th house, where it’s likely caused stress in your love life since May. But now it will be in your 8th house, which can make you overly tired and drained both physically and financially. Don’t over-do it or take on too much. If you have children, there may be more drama on account of them at this time.

Expect the successful conclusion of legal battles or overcoming health problems now.

Leo (August 17 - September 17)

Mars will be in your 7th house, the house of relationships with others. For this reason, be careful of quarreling now with everyone, but especially your dates, partners, or spouse. Be careful of big changes to your relationship status "out of the blue" and of making major decisions to commit or break up without thinking things through. No drunken trips to Vegas! 

Be gentle with yourself and others.

Virgo (September 17 - October 17)

Mars will be in your 6th house, one of its best positions. You’re unstoppable. If you're involved in any legal dramas, now is the time to ramp things up. If you've been having health problems or financial burdens, you should start to see major progress.

This is a good time for your finances, so ask for that raise, or pursue extra sources of income, and pay down any debt.

Libra (October 17 - November 16)

Mars will be in your 5th house, which can cause emotional distance and extra expenses with your children or any children you are close to. You may feel low in energy or more physically fragile, so do things to build your reserves. You know, eat right, get enough sleep, hug a cat ...

Breathe deeply and count to ten before speaking, or you may do unintended damage.

Scorpio (November 16 - December 16)

Mars will be in your 4th house, the house of your emotions, home, vehicles, and family. Slowwwwww dowwwwn. You may be more prone to restlessness, arguing, fighting, irritability, and drama with relatives, especially mother figures. Try to be patient. On the upside, this is a good time to be bold and brave, to travel, and may motivate you to make changes to your home or garden, or even move or buy or sell property.

Sagittarius (December 16 - January 14)

Mars will be in your 3rd house, and this is considered one of the better placements for the red planet. It's especially good for money issues, courage, and "the easy destruction of enemies" both internal and external, such as your own "demons" or health problems, legal battles, addictions, or competition.

You'll enjoy greater professional fulfillment and support, so go for it with any goals or plans.

Capricorn (January 14 - February 13)

Congrats! Mars is backing away. But you might not totally know it yet, as it’s moving into the sign just next door in your 2nd house, where it can still be strongly felt. Expect more anxiety, to feel wired and tired and the inability to stop your own blunt, impatient speech.

Pile on the self-care, and know your Christmas present this year, whether you celebrate or not, is Mars giving you a break at last!

Aquarius (February 13 - March 14)

Mars will be in your sign, so you're likely to feel restless, impatient, brash, and anxious. Make sure to get plenty of exercise and breeeeeathe. Despite all that, remember Mars gives us courage and the strength to do what we gotta do. Break down any barriers in your way, take on challenges, get powerful people on your side, and make more money — even if it scares you.

Pisces (March 14 - April 14)

Mars will be in your 12th house, the house of expenses and foreign, distant lands. Be careful of blowing all your dough on an exotic trip somewhere. All kidding aside, watch out for unexpected bills and things to handle, especially having to do with your home or car, so go get things "serviced" and checked out now.

You’re very generous, but make sure you have a reasonable holiday shopping list and budget — and that you stick to it.

Whew! Despite Mars being the speedy planet of action, writing about it took me forever ...

It’s my hope that the planets and stars (both the cruel and gentle) shower you with love!
