If you ever need motivation, cross your fingers that Mars is coming around. Mars represents motivation more than any other planet. This red planet gives us the energy we need to reach our goals. However, the way that it functions shifts when this energy is combined with that of other planets. For example, Mars forming some kind of aspect with Neptune would motivate us to seek our spirituality or opportunities to help others. Mars in an aspect with the sun would magnify this motivational energy and give us the ability to use it in any area of our lives.
On March 5, Mars moves into a trine aspect with Saturn. The combined energy of these two planets can help us achieve incredible things, so this aspect is very auspicious. Here are a few things you can expect:
- You will find a new level of endurance.
This aspect gives you the strength to push through whatever has been holding you back. If you’ve been struggling at your job, you’ll gain a new understanding of how to approach your career and start making the necessary changes. If you’ve been wallowing in self pity because a relationship ended, you’ll find the energy to get up, go out, and meet new people who will make you feel better about yourself.
- You’ll also be more patient.
You’ll understand that not all changes can be sudden and dramatic-these things take time, and that’s okay. You won’t feel like you need to rush to make things happen. You’ll see that sometimes you need to work slowly and methodically to really make things work, and you don’t need to skip the journey in anticipation of the destination. You just need to have faith in yourself and keep up your good work ethic, and everything will turn out in your favor.
- You’ll realize that it’s time to truly follow your passion.
No, this doesn’t have to mean quitting your job and traveling the world, or leaving the place where you live for somewhere new. It just means recognizing what really sets your soul on fire and making time and space for it in your life. Too many people ignore their true passions and don’t make an effort to chase their dreams. Doing so doesn’t make you naïve or impractical. It just makes you a human being who knows that life is too short not to chase what they want.
- Your relationships will benefit.
When you’re motivated and devoted to the things you care about, people around you will begin to take notice. Your friends and family will appreciate your good outlook. Romantic relationships will especially benefit during this time. If you’re putting in extra effort when it comes to making your partner happy, they’re very likely to do the same in return, and you will both be better off! Simply put, this is a time of prosperity-if you’re ready to put the work. Nothing worth having comes easy, so it’s time to roll up those sleeves!
