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.

Your vision — so clear months ago — now seems foolish and misguided. Could you really have been so wrong? No, but there's a little thing called timing in Astrology, and that's what’s causing you so much distress. You had no choice but to press forward when you did with a project or aspiration. Otherwise, you would have lost the momentum you'd built. Unfortunately, two retrogrades in October and November left you hanging. This improves a little on Dec. 10, but it'll be February 2014 before you're back on track again.
