Mars, planet of energy and competition, enters Uttara Ashada, across the signs of Sagittarius and Capricorn, from February 21st 2022.
Uttara is a cultured nakshatra which emphasises diplomacy and moderation when used in the right way. Fiery Mars’s transit gives you restless and gung-ho energy as well, and you may decide a cut-off point or deadline when talk ends and it’s time for more direct means.
Uttara’s nature is fixed and rewards a patient build-up, even though Mars does not naturally flow with a slow approach, but its power in the Capricorn portion of this nakshatra after February 26th promises success.
You can fight for a belief, even if you are standing up on someone else’s behalf, and a crusading spirit helps to get the best from Mars and make a win-win working situation. Though Uttara is not actually ruled by Ganesha, its symbol of the elephant’s Tusk has a clear symbolic link with the Remover of Obstacles, and invoking his aid clears your path in any new effort.
Kicking off new plans and desires is a feature of both Uttara Ashada and Mars itself, so this transit is a time of beginnings and initiatives. You may decide where you need to put more energy, or else have already worked hard enough for too little reward.
The goal signified by Uttara’s house in your chart may need one final push, or to be deferred or sacrificed for a more fulfilling plan. Mars is close together with Venus, planet of relationship, through this transit and you can combine action with diplomacy to good effect.
You are bold and direct in your affairs, and may seek to make a romantic conquest, but a softly-softly approach plays more to your all-round strength.
