The masculine planet of war and action was depicted as a beautiful and powerful young man, half nude, wearing a helmet and carrying a spear – emblems of his warrior nature. Now, Mars is in the sign ruled by the Sun, associated in astrology with personal power, vitality, pride and leadership qualities. Let’s see how Mars in Leo influences our health, finances and relationships in the next seven weeks.

Swimming is also a great exercise and is particularly pleasant, during summer. This will work different muscles depending on the style of swimming you do.
