Mars, planet of assertion and desire, is in Swati within the sign of Libra from October 31st to November 20th 2021.
This is a time to make your presence felt in a balanced and intellectual style as you raise your leadership credentials. Swati is ruled by Vayu, the Wind God, which is associated with intelligence, knowledge and the voice, and these qualities see your motivation moving in a thoughtful and scholarly direction.
Furthering your education or studying a favourite subject has great promise and you can weigh up all possible outcomes to arrive at a balanced view. Breaking out of the box and confounding people’s expectations in a positive way is also a good use of this energy.
This nakshatra’s name is linked to Saraswati, devata of wisdom and the arts, so Mars also puts passion and drive into your creative pursuits and you may find a competitive atmosphere creeping into your working world. Either this, or your actions are given an artistic and sophisticated tone and you conduct your business smoothly and smartly.
Swati’s Shakti is the ‘power to disperse like the wind’, which shows a diverse and versatile approach to life, with varied talents competing to be injected with energy. Clearly this brings potential for an unfocused attitude to your business, where you end up spreading yourself too thinly over too many plans – you do better with an organized approach where you can cross off your projects one by one.
Mars is together with Mercury, planet of communication, all the way through this transit, which gives you an immediate and assertive way of speaking and deciding. Be careful of making an impulse buy, and think your arguments through carefully before biting back.
