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.

But if you're going to ask people to give you an honest assessment of yourself (whether they be loved ones or associates at work), then you need to make them feel that you're going to listen and that you will take what they have to say to heart. Otherwise, they will say that everything's fine when you know that it's not.
