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.
CANCER (June 20 - July 21)
Changes in the lives of loved ones can't help but impact you, but this is when you need to curb your protective instincts and let people hash out their own differences. There is a lot of quarrelsome and combative energy coursing through that part of your solar chart that pertains to hearth, home and family. Try as you might to prevail upon feuding parties to resolve differences, that won't happen anytime soon. A current dispute could take until July to resolve. Expect to alternate between being mediator and referee until then.
