New Moon Leo chapter 3, Mars enters the sign of Scorpio after 8 months in LibraJuly 25Mars enters its ancient ruling sign Scorpio in the Dark of the Moon.

Don’t allow the fiery energies of Mars and Leo to clash or get out of control.

“Mars in Libra wants to control, but struggles to decide a course of action…Mars is at home in Scorpio… get of the fence and advance (Mars) towards a goal (Saturn).” (

Utilize the Mars and the Dark Moon energies to do some preparatory work:
“…Take stock of how you express and how you want to express yourself creatively…
“…power up, get on task, move some projects forward…
“…purge nonessential projects and practices…(Coleman)

Ask, Reflect, Plan, Act
What is your goal?
Is it within reach?
Or (at least) visible in the distance?
If it’s not visible, envision it.

“…forge deep connections with your allies, for tactical (Mars) reasons of mutual empowerment (Saturn).” (

“Dance and sing “…paint your world with color and courage as you move with the offerings of the gods…”(Coleman)
