In astrology, Mars represents conflict, physical energy and sexual desire. It’s also about tenacity, power to impose one’s will (most of the times at the cost of the comfort). Mars is relentless because it wants things its own way, as opposed to the Mercury relentlessness, which is about curiosity.

Mars is the planet of war and it will show in one’s chart how he/she handles conflict, how they put their energy into work and their sexual preferences.

In one’s chart, Mars will also affect health, or at least how we manifest physical energy.

Traditionally regarded as a “bad” planet, Mars is neither good or bad, but it represents the valve which lets our energy out. When badly affected, out energy may turn out bad, that’s where it got the name of being “bad” among astrologers, but, in itself, like any other planet, Mars is neither good or bad.

If bad;y affected, Mars will support impatience, intolerance and cruelty. If strongly affected, it will provide a lot pf physical energy, supporting the native to achieve a lot of difficult tasks.

In a woman chart, the placement of Mars in sign and house will help identify the male characteristic to which she is attracted to. It’s not necessarily about long term partnership, but more about physical chemistry. Especially Mars / Venus contacts will create a favorable context for sexual chemistry.

Mars rules the signs of Aries and Scorpio.
