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.

This won't be easy for a take-charge Aries, but it's what you need to do to become a well-rounded person. Many of your life lessons in the coming months will have to do with building tolerance, restraint and cooperation. Cooperation teaches you the grace of give-and-take, how to value what others bring to the table and how to turn the "m" in "me" upside down to create the "w" in "we."
