Through inner balance, anything can be achieved. Sit quietly with your hand on your heart as your breath cycles through your body, inhaling and exhaling slowly as you find balance. Balance isn’t just focused on having enough time for the multiple tasks or areas of your life that are essential to you, but also learning how to regulate your nervous system and to be able to embrace stillness.
Understanding your breath and the power your nervous system has over your life and your manifestations can help you make the most of the era of Mars in Libra as the planet of action shifts into the air sign, which rules balance and interpersonal dynamics. Mars is one of the most significant planets when manifesting because it represents passion, motivation and the action to make your dream a reality. It can be single-minded, yet it is responsible for bringing about change and a positive turn of events, unlike any other astrological force.
Mars in Libra brings rare energy, though, because as much as it will help you focus on what you need to get about more excellent balance in yourself and life, it also brings generous energy. Libra is the zodiac sign that rules partnerships and often highlights any interpersonal relationships as you strive for compromise, diplomacy and justice. This helps you focus on your intention and what would be best for all around you.
As you lean into Mars in Libra, please ensure you’re not sacrificing your dreams for another, as sometimes, compromising this air sign can prioritize others or keep the peace ahead of its inner desires. Yet, by remaining aware of Mars and Libra’s benefits, you can work with the universe to manifest something that’s not just what you desire but can serve a higher purpose.
Depending on your ritual, either day or nighttime is suitable when manifesting with Mars in Libra. To embrace more of this powerful energy, you can utilize citrine, moonstone, or clear quartz in your ceremonies. In addition to the essential oils of rose, lavender, jasmine and gardenia, catnip, elderberry and thyme can strengthen your intentions, helping you manifest more intensely with Mars now in this air sign.
