Mars, planet of energy and action, is in Shravana within the sign of Capricorn from February 18th to March 6th 2024.
This sign has Mars’s greatest strength, which gives you great promise for an ambitious and demanding task which you reel in quickly and professionally. Shravana is an auspicious nakshatra associated with wisdom and learning, particularly the oral transmission of knowledge.
You can work as a spiritual warrior, using brains aligned with muscle, and putting your energy into the pursuit of understanding. You learn a lot about the power of speech, weighing your words carefully, and discovering their capacity to persuade, wound or heal.
Shravana is a moveable nakshatra which favours travel, especially in an educational way, and you have the discipline to study a foreign language while you are away. There’s a competitive element to your mind-expansion and someone may trigger you into learning more and proving you have the answers.
Though ruled by Vishnu, Shravana has a natural association with Saraswati, devata of wisdom, and chanting and meditating on her mantra enhances your memory and natural connection to new ideas.
Teaching a favourite subject also reinforces your knowledge, so imparting your skills and experience to others is an excellent use of your time. A period of silence may be useful for getting in touch with your inner voice and tuning out superficial talk and negative messages.
Mars moves closely alongside Venus, planet of relationship, all through this transit, which gives you a smoother and more easy-going style. You can connect with someone over a shared love of a knowledge tradition, and from February 21st to 24th, find a sudden romantic chemistry.
