The warrior planet has entered the sign of its exaltation, Capricorn, where it will remain through the end of March. A planet in exaltation has free reign to accomplish its goals. It doesn't necessarily mean those goals are admirable, worthy, charitable or of highest consciousness, but you'll be able to direct your will towards accomplishment, achievement, ambitious long range plans and objectives. Whether or not you have the moral fiber to direct them towards honorable and noble endeavors, rather than mere selfish or ruthless ones, is a matter of the substance of what you're made of. Just because Mars is in a great sign for his energy to be used at its optimum, doesn't necessarily mean it's for good purposes. Mars has dignity in Capricorn because its where he has strength and responsibility, not necessarily affinity for the sign. It's like living in your own home and having the mortgage paid off. You can do whatever you want, you own it, but it doesn't necessarily mean that what goes on behind closed doors is a Shangri-La. You can be harboring a crystal meth lab, but it will most likely be kept hidden from view and safe because Mars has strength and dignity in this sign.
That being said, it would be wise to direct your ego and ambition towards achievement of career goals and legacy that will foster a sense of purpose and making a tangible addition to society and the world at large. Your world can be a localized one of a small town or neighborhood but within it you can make a difference and use your energy to build rather than tear down. In Capricorn the impulsiveness of Mars is restricted in the best way possible and directs its impetus towards a steady, slow and persistent drive forward. It's enduring, lasting and projects initiated now can stand the test of time and withstand some pressure. With Mercury retrograde for the next three weeks the impetus for these new projects and goals has an inward journey of planning and organizing the details with a very strong imaginative vision that becomes more outwardly manifest when Mercury turns direct in three weeks. Mars says keep the foot slowly on the gas pedal because you can see the mountain top in the distance getting closer and closer in some area of your life.
