Mars, the planet of willpower, enters the zodiac sign of Libra on Dec. 7. This will change the balance of power in your relationship. But Mars doesn't do this to wreak havoc in your life.

There's always a "man-up" quality when Mars energy is strong (even if you're a woman), but it's in service to invigorating your relationship and making it the best that it can be. Those relationships that are found wanting or that don't make the grade will be unceremoniously jettisoned.

Being an Aquarian, you won't try to explain the unexplainable, but that won't stop you from struggling to understand it. This week, a new path will open up in your life. It's a spiritual path that won't square easily with what has come before. This promises to broaden your horizons and expand those mental margins that have grown a bit narrow lately.
