The Mars in Pisces Transit Pumps Up Passion, But Where Should You Direct It?

Mighty Mars shoves its way through flowy Pisces from March 22 to April 30, 2024, the first time since 2022! Here’s what to expect during the Mars in Pisces transit, plus your horoscope.

Mars in Pisces is not exactly directional—but it IS quite dreamy.

Going with the flow could be the quickest path to productivity for the next five and a half weeks as make-it-happen Mars floats into dreamy Pisces.

Just as you sit down to focus on your daily tasks, you could get diverted by your imagination, or some other random but intriguing quest. How to deal? Carve out time for creativity, but keep one eye on the clock. Reminder alarms are a saving grace during a Mars in Pisces transit cycle.

What does Mars in Pisces mean?

This cycle is a time to lean into the courage of warrior Mars and the compassion of peacekeeper Pisces.

The Mars in Pisces cycle is an ideal time for:

  • plumbing the depths
  • exploring life’s mysteries
  • bringing more compassion into daily your interactions
  • healing a wound/getting to the core of a traumatic emotional pattern

In other words: add more soul to your goals. Think about how you can:

  • uplift others
  • make them feel seen
  • let them know they’re valued
  • inspire others

The Fairy Tale Potential of This Mars in Pisces Transit

Life could resemble a page-turning fairy tale as lusty Mars joins Venus in Pisces (until April 5). During this passionate, poetic cycle, love’s fast-moving current could sweep you off to enchanted shores.

But since Pisces is the sign of healing and fantasy, you could get pulled into a quixotic or even clandestine attraction. Part of you will relish getting caught up in these wild feelings, but deception (including self-deception) could be at play.

This transit is ideal for a couple’s retreat or long-overdue healing work.

In an increasingly divided world, this Mars phase can act as a soothing salve and, since Pisces rules the feet, an invitation to walk a mile in each other’s shoes. It’s time to shift your closest relationships—and the collective conscience—by choosing love over fear and hate.

Pack your bags, Cancer! Go-getter Mars blasts into Pisces, soaring through your adventurous ninth house March 22 to April 30. Your wanderlust hasn’t been activated quite like this in two years, so start exploring travel opportunities that fall in line with your extracurricular interests. That cooking class in Tuscany or the book lovers’ literary cruise could be calling.

Truthbomb alert! Mars in this position can fire you up to “call it like you see it,” but you could forget to use tact. Reminder: This is your life, not a reality TV show, so don’t start treating loved ones like misbehaving castmates. Cancer Daily Horoscope: Read Yours!

Leo (July 23-August 22) Mars Pisces transit horoscope

Out of sight, out of mind? Mars slips into your eighth house of secrets and hidden information, March 22 to April 30, forcing you to deal with anything you’ve swept under the deep-pile rug.

That could put them in resistance mode, making it harder for you to nudge the partnership in your desired direction. If your love life is on the rocks, aggro Mars won’t let you sit idly by. The trick is to confront the issue directly while toning down firepower.

Remember: You want to BUILD bridges, not burn them. Negotiate, compromise… and you’ll find an ecstatic medium. Virgo Daily Horoscope: Read Yours!

Ready to bring some order to your court? Mars in the sixth house spells clean-up time, Libra.

Libra Daily Horoscope: Read Yours!

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Mars in Pisces transit horoscope

No one puts Scorpio in the corner! Fierce, feisty Mars moves into your fifth house of fame from March 22 until April 30, pumping you up with starpower. For a change, you’d rather be the star of every TikTok than lurking in the comments thread. If you’d rather  let your work speak for itself, find outlets to put your latest creations on display. Your romantic life revs up under Mars’ influence, and even in quarantine, the passion could get red-hot as you trade spicy love notes and naughty sexts.

Warning: If you’ve been butting heads with your amour, this tempestuous cycle could add more fuel to the fire. Don’t rip your sweetie to shreds just because you’re dissatisfied. Nothing is ever resolved in anger, so take some time to cool down before you address any issues in your relationship. Scorpio Daily Horoscope: Read Yours!

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Mars in Pisces transit horoscope

Home sweet home? Fiery Mars camps out in your fourth house domestic sector from March 22 to April 30, bringing both excitement and aggravation to your nest. On the one hand, Chateau Sagittarius could become a lively workshop for all your innovative ideas. But what about those moments of rest that you (and the other people under your roof) require? Mars can be a bit of an agitator, making it hard to find a spot of solitude. You will have to be firm with roomies and relatives so they don’t tramp into your turf while you’re in the zone.

The provocative planet could spark your urge to play interior designer. Before you go crazy, get clear about the project’s scope and make sure you have the moola—and mojo—to take on the mission. Sagittarius Daily Horoscope: Read Yours!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Mars in Pisces transit horoscope

Say what? Your words have more power than ever as assertive Mars moves into Pisces and your third house communication sector from March 22 to April 30. With your firepower dialed up, you might not realize how strong you’re coming on. To avoid intimidating people, lean in to the compassionate and poetic vibes of Pisces.

Take time to warm up the crowd before you get down to business, and you’ll set the stage for long-lasting alliances. Existing duos become dynamic, or dynamite, under Mars’ influence. You’ll either be collaborating brilliantly or butting heads during the Mars in Pisces transit. Cooperation won’t come easily, so it’s important to clearly delineate responsibilities to avoid conflicts. You might even draw up a contract or spell things out in a spreadsheet for the sake of clarity. Capricorn Daily Horoscope: Read Yours!

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Mars in Pisces transit horoscope

Go-getter Mars cruises into your second house money zone, blessing you with the Midas touch from March 22 to April 30 (and beyond). Your thoughts could be consumed by business opportunities as you fill out applications, touch up your resume or get the wheels in motion for a new entrepreneurial venture. You’ve been hosting the red planet since February 16, which no doubt brought a whirlwind of visionary ideas. During the Mars in Pisces transit, you’ll FINALLY have the focus you need to get into production mode.

Mars’ agitating energy can also lead to overspending, especially when it comes to luxury items. Tension with coworkers may heat up too, especially if you get a little too “Martian” on them (read: bossy, aggressive and intimidating). Don’t forget your role is as the zodiac’s team player, Aquarius, not military dictator. Aquarius Daily Horoscope: Read Yours!

Pisces (February 19-March 20) Mars in Pisces transit horoscope

Mermaid unleashed! Red-hot Mars grooves into Pisces from March 22 to April 30, blessing you with added passion and productivity. If you’ve been dragging your fins, it’s time to take action. Those big changes you KNOW you need to make—well, you’re finally ready to tackle them head-on and see them through to the finish line. This may require you to make a clean break from any wild goose chases you’ve been racing on.

Caution: Stress levels can rise when Mars visits your first house, making it uber-important to exercise and burn off angst. Most of all, be self-directed. Mars only visits Pisces every other year, prompting bold, fearless action. Put yourself first. When you’re successful, everyone’s successful—that’s how generous Pisces rolls.

Where will Mars be in 2024?

Mars is also the last of the personal inner planets—the planets before Jupiter which are closest to the Sun. The red planet hangs out in a zodiac sign for approximately 6-8 weeks, directing the global temperament and fighting style. Lusty Mars is the forthright companion to seductive Venus and can bring out the “cosmic cave(wo)man” in us all. Our raw desire is on display during certain Mars cycles, while other zodiac signs provoke a more discreet style of pursuit.
