Mars, a planet of courage and assertiveness, is in Mrigashira from August 16th to September 6th, 2024, the nakshatra spanning the signs of Taurus and Gemini – sitting between the heavens and the earth.

Mrigashira’s symbol, The Deer, is depicted in myth being pursued across the skies by Brahma the Creator, which represents a hunt driven by desire or ambition. Mars loves the thrill of the chase, particularly in a romantic sense, and this may be more fun than settling down with your current partner – but ask yourself if this is what you really want. Though you seek conquest, Mrigashira’s soft and timid nature may also see you as the person being pursued.

This asterism’s ruling deity, Soma – the Moon – is the fastest moving of all planets, and gives your emotional mind a fickle and changeable character. You start one project in a determined mood only to lose focus, and when the next day you are drawn to something else. Yet Mrigashira’s Shakti, or divine power, is to Provide Fulfilment, so there is the ultimate promise at the end of the chase when you stick to your original idea.

If you are on an actual journey, it’s worth settling on a program to keep you on track so you don’t veer off in different directions. Mars in the earthy Taurus portion of this asterism up to August 26th combines with adventurous Jupiter and gives you an extra impulsive and restless streak. This combination can work in your favour, however, if you decide to travel or go on a retreat, and mix your raw energy with a search for bigger meaning.
