During this period your "light is hidden under a bushel" more than at other times. Your efforts to get ahead in business or professional life may meet with opposition that is very difficult to handle, and others may work against your personal advancement. This would also apply to activities that you work on with a group. You may feel very self-assertive, but somehow it just doesn't work out as you plan. The problem is that your energies are not turned toward the outer world. Instead they are turned inward toward yourself, your personal and home life. Here you can accomplish much more, if you apply yourself.

First of all, be aware of any tendency toward anger or irritability. This signifies tension in your personal life that you should attend to. However, you may find that the source of the tension is not something that is currently at work in your life. A current situation may have reactivated a memory or perhaps a psychological pattern from the past, which is causing you to feel defensive and argumentative. It is best to do whatever you can to bring this tension source to the surface. Don't merely repress the energies, for they will only surface on another Mars transit.

Ego energies are running rather high on the home front during this transit, and you may run into conflicts at home. Be careful not to step on the toes of the people you live with, but don't let them step on you either. You may have an argument or disagreement with one of your parents under this transit. The only problem to watch for is that arguments triggered by this transit tend to be rather unconscious; that is, each person argues as if programmed, not like a real, thinking person. Old patterns are activated, and no one really addresses the current problem as a new and unique situation with its own special solution.

Many tensions and pressures in your personal life can be released at this time if you avoid the kind of trap described above. Try to get at the root of what is really wrong and deal with the truth. Sometimes this transit can signify domestic accidents, so don't be careless.
