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. Mars does this to test your mettle. If you've always been the leader, then it will be time for you to share the power. If you've always been the follower, then you will need to step up to the plate. 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.
GEMINI (May 20 - June 19)
You're feeling exposed and vulnerable. Maybe it's because you're test-driving a new look, reworking a familiar formula for success or dating someone new. You're needy for approval, and you'll be scanning others' faces for signs of rejection or hints of criticism. This could turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy from Dec. 4 through Dec. 9 if you're not careful. Do the best job you can to keep a lid on your insecurities and you'll discover that this was all in your head on Dec. 10, when the Mercury/Uranus trine will disperse all doubts.
