Mars in Leo will also waken your most powerful physical desires, Capricorn, and you just can’t wait to jump into bed with your crush or lover. You’re willing to push all the boundaries right now, and can’t seem to get enough of your sweetheart. 

You’re going to be willing to explore the more taboo sides of love and relationship, Capricorn, and might even experiment with some ideas from 50 Shades of Grey! 

Go ahead, Capricorn, and don’t feel shy about your fiery desires right now – as long as you are being safe. 

Committed or not, you’re more sensitive to tension in the air at the moment, Capricorn, especially financial tension. Power struggles may come about, particularly if you are being a touch controlling, or your partner is. Try and find a sense of peace and avoid the drama! 

Once this transit is over, Capricorn, you’ll understand so much more about the power balance between you and your partner.


Aquarius, this transit of Mars into Leo is very impactful on your relationships. You see, Leo is your opposite sign, Aquarius, and rules your zone of commitment and long-term love. 

For some of you, this is going to invite a whole lore more passion in an existing relationship – you’ll hardly be able to keep your hands to yourself! All you want to do is get sexy with your sweetheart, and spend time having fun and doing what you love together. 

At the same time, Aquarius, the tensions can run high, too, especially if you or your partner tend to be dominating. Fights break out easily, but making up is just as hot and passionate! 

Singles, this may bring along someone who has long-term potential, though you may also just want to have fun and play for now. It’s your decision, Aquarius, you get to call the shots. Just be sure not to let anyone walk all over you, no matter how sexy they are! 

This could also be a time, Aquarius where you take much more decisive action in your relationship, one way or the other. Maybe you take a step towards moving in together or something more exciting! 


Pisces, with Mars in Leo, you may find yourself busier than ever, especially when it comes to work. You might be put into a position of management, which can bring you a huge amount of confidence. 

This confidence may easily spill out into your love life, whether you are single or with someone. Sometimes, all we need is acknowledgement and rewards for a job well done to allow our light to beam bright! 

Domestic, day to day topics are also going to be very important, Pisces, in your relationship. You may find yourself either becoming a little more tense as you run around doing it all, or you could find a new, fun way to do tasks. 

Try and make it the latter, Pisces – for example, have a reward system where, if one of you take out the trash, you get a sexy treat! This makes things fun and exciting rather than dull and conflict-ridden. 

Single Pisces, you may find this a great time to connect with someone at work on a physical level – you know what I mean! As long as it doesn’t threaten your career, you can really have some naughty fun now!

  1. I’m a single Aquarius Pisces cuspie and have had some very intense conversations with past loves… almost as if they’re literally coming out of the woodwork! Men I haven’t really spoken to in years are all of a sudden re entering my life …. As friends bc quite frankly I wouldn’t go back into a romantic relationship with any of them and I’m able to express my feelings with kindness. I would love to find my match, my partner, and am completely open to receiving him when he comes but I stopped looking and am allowing the universe to bring this person to me. I am an artist and currently focusing on my art hoping the right guy will appreciate it and what I can bring into a healthy relationship. Wish me luck!

  2. I feel like everthing I do to find a steady reliable partner, has been back firing! I have had offers lately but it just doesn’t stick. Either I scare them off or I’m just got feeling it. Right now I have a better life then I probably ever have. However I find myself feeling so alone, it’s a feeling I’m not used to! I don’t want to be alone anymore.

  4. Well my Leo wants a date night tonight and I’m more than happy to see and be his Aries queen. Things got better yesterday as he shared some troubles with me and I let him know that he was going to be just fine. So today he came to my office and talked about an hour and things seem like it may get back on track. He almost said the 3 words but caught him self

  5. How are you? I’m Dana. I’m a Virgo 9/8/76. . I RECIEVE emails from you about my Taurus guy. I read all you have on Taurus men. love and appreciate you!! I am in an LDR with a Taurus , its going on 4 months but feel like its fading out a little, I know he cares and shows Love but still has a wall up afraid to fully let someone in. we made a lot of progress but my signs are pointing to me being with my soulmate in the next 3 months I feel like it could be him but then have doubts as well. I have to find a balance and have a talk with him on where we stand and if he genuinely sees a future for us! I dont want to miss my soulmate if he is not it.. I need love and happiness for the rest of my life.

  6. I have been trying to connect with a Scorpio man, but things just don’t seem to develop. He has sent very mixed signals. He has opened up and shared very intimate details about himself and has reached out to check to make sure I am okay. But then he is very elusive. I don’t know what to make of it.
