From *JULY 1- 2 through AUGUST 17-18 2019, Mars will transit the sign of Leo. Since the Mars sign shows how people respond when they are angry and how they react to the anger in others, Mars in Leo causes people to become angered and highly uncooperative due to pride and respect (the lack of) issues. It is important to keep this in mind when interacting with others and cooperation is required. Of course, we ourselves will be equally sensitive to pride and (dis)respect issues but, if we want to accomplish our objectives, we need to treat others with the same respect that we demand for ourselves.
In past Mars in Leo cycles, I purchased tacky earrings and boot jewelry. I got my first tattoo and, 2 years later, my 2nd tattoo. I began renovations in my home and purchasing new furniture. Being good to yourself is essential with this Mars cycle. In my journals, I found my energies more extroverted. My need for love and appreciation was strong. I seemed to get despondent when I was ignored or felt a lack of affection in my life.
In 2010, Mars was in Leo for a very long since it was retrograde at that time. I do remember that this was a very social time, ME time, and I attended parties, took day trips with a senior group and I had fun in general.
In 2013, Yes, there were important social events, including a big event at the Slovenian Embassy. A neighbor and I took a luxurious trip to Cape May. I adopted another stray that showed up…he is still with me. I was active planning my trip to Poland.
Mars in Leo will always be in my 12th House so it is not always active but the 12th House rules Foreign and Distant Places where people do not know you and this part was active.
I realize that many times my Greatest Astrological Picnic is held every other year when Mars is in Leo! This was true in 2015 and 2017.
HEALTH ISSUES: When angered or provoked, Mars in Leo will manifest as a disturbance in the biochemical cell salt of Magnesium Phosphate. This cell salt acts upon the motor nerves and these respond to any pain felt in the sensory nerves. Magnesium Phosphate is found inside the cells of muscles, nerves, bones, the brain and spine. Deficiency affects muscle fibers and nerve endings. This is known as the anti-pain cell salt. It helps us to let go and relax.
Magnesium Phosphate calms agitated nerves for pain relief of headache, writers cramp, sciatica, neuralgia. Spasmodic is a key symptom and Magnesium Phosphate calms spasmodic coughs, menstrual cramps and leg cramps. This Cell Salt improves the body’s ability to absorb Magnesium. If lacking in Magnesium Phosphate, nerves are on edge with the inability to relax emotional (showing as anxiety, nervous disorders, depression) and physically (showing as muscle problems, fibromyalgia even worse with a light touch, nerve sensitivity-even the skin may feel overly sensitive).
When I experienced stress, my back ached. Leo rules the back and, in shouldering burdensome responsibilities, the back will suffer. Sometimes this type of back ache is due to adrenal stress. When I take two capsules of Adrenal caps (Solaray is only one now with Raw Adrenal), the pain is gone within 30 minutes. Sometimes it can be due to electrolyte imbalance and a good potassium-magnesium supplement can be very helpful.
