On 20 May, the planet Mars transitioned into the passionate and dynamic sign of Leo. Here it remains until 10 July.

An energetic time

In astrology, Mars symbolizes the god of war, representing drive, courage, passion and fighting spirit . Mars embodies our "fight or flight" response and what drives us - our desires and our ambitions. It is the planet that has the most to do with our instincts and shows our immediate reaction to the challenges in our lives.


When Mars appears in Leo , this energetic combination is often interpreted as a powerful and courageous time . Leo is a fire sign  known for its generosity, creativity, and strong will. So the combination of Mars energy and Leo dynamics can create an explosion of self-expression, leadership and determination .

Self-confidence strengthens

Under the influence of Mars in Leo, we can all feel more energetic, confident, and passionate in the coming weeks. So this is the perfect time to start projects, take creative risks and assert ourselves in personal and professional matters. We feel alive and ready to go for what is important to us.

We become impulsive

Despite its many positives, Mars in Leo can also bring its challenges . Sometimes this energetic combination can lead to overconfidence . There is a danger of acting impulsively without considering the consequences . There could also be a tendency towards pride or arrogance, which can cause conflicts in relationships. For example, we should now also make an effort to let other people's opinions count and avoid haughty behavior .


How Leo-Mars affects the signs of the zodiac

Those born under the signs of Sagittarius, Aries, and, of course, Leo may flourish in a particularly positive way during this phase. As fire signs, Sagittarius and Aries are closely aligned with passionate Leo Mars, which adds to their natural enthusiasm and drive .

Libra and Gemini can be spurred on by Leo's creativity and dynamism , finding an expanded sense of harmony and balance in their lives.

Slightly less but also favored at present are the Cancers and Virgos, as well as the Pisces and Capricorns. But the exemplary effort will now also be rewarded extra.

The three zodiac signs,  Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius, may experience more challenges during this phase. Taureans may have difficulty keeping up with the fast-paced energy of Mars in Leo, while Scorpios, who prefer deep emotional waters, may feel overwhelmed by the extroverted energy of Leo. Aquarians may feel their need for freedom and independence more strongly during this phase and may rebel against any restrictions.
