Between July 1st and August 18th 2019, Mars transits the sign of Leo. Bearing the name of the Roman god of war and action, this planet rules, in astrology, all kind of competitions and physical activities. Associated with energy, strength, ambition and impulsiveness, Mars always calls us to action.

On the other hand, Leo is the astrological 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.

Mars in Leo for Your Health: Exercise More

With Mars’ energy in Leo, you want to improve your physical attractiveness. So, you will find new ways to get more exercise. Some of us will go to the gym, but this isn’t the only way to get more exercise. Take the stairs instead of elevators. Walk instead of drive (when this is possible). Swimming is also a great exercise and is particularly pleasant, during summer. It will work different muscles, depending on the swimming style.

Mars in Leo for Your Finances: Taking Risks

With Mars in Leo, getting rich slowly is not an option. You’ll simply have not the required patience. So, you’ll need to be brave and to take some high financial risks. At the beginning, maybe you’ll lose something. But, then, you’ll see that, when you become used to taking financial risks, you start to become confident with your money.

Here are some inspirational quotes about taking risks:

Security is mostly a superstition. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. (Helen Keller)

The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks. (Mark Zuckerberg)

Do one thing every day that scares you. (Eleanor Roosevelt)

Mars in Leo in Relationships: Bring More Passion!

As we have already seen above, both men and women need to feel good about their body, when Mars transits Leo. You don’t have to look like a top model, but anyone can put on some beautiful outfits and maybe some make-up. Looking good, looking attractive makes your partner feel appreciated (and also makes him/her horny).

And, of course, physical appearance isn’t everything. Spend more time with your partner and try a variety of activities that bring you both pleasure! John Mordecai Gottman, professor emeritus in psychology, said that every positive thing you do in your relationship is foreplay. Don’t ever forget it!
