Astrology: Mars Secrets Revealed

Monday, July 27th, 2015

Being aware of the symbolism of Mars in a person’s comprehensive astrology charts lends vast understanding to his character and personal fate.

I’m pleased to serve as your interpreter, as few desire to take the time to learn comprehensive astrology, which is as challenging to learn as any foreign language.

Mars is commonly recognized as symbolizing masculine energy. Mars as the belligerent warrior is legendary.

Although it largely has a bad reputation, like Saturn, a healthy, well-connected and well-positioned Mars can represent exceptional rewards.

Astrologically speaking, below I list select Mars secrets and features.

  1. Mars is masculine, malefic, and rules the signs of Aries and Scorpio. Mars is exalted in the sign of Capricorn. Mars in Libra, Taurus, or Cancer is unfavorable, but the adverse energy can be symbolically mitigated in various ways. In other words, the negative or positive energy of any given indicator is diminished or strengthened by the energy of the other hundreds of indicators.
  2. Mars represents action, vitality, passion, competition, contests, races, brothers, men, military personnel, warriors, professional athletes, mechanics, people who work with sharp objects such as knives (or scissors or scalpels, etc.), engineers, metal workers of all types, police and rescue workers, those who protect such as security guards, crusaders, and fighters of all sorts (physical or philosophical).
  3. It also represents arguments, disputes, war, looting, fights, torture, violence, surprise attacks, destructive outbursts, cruelty, anger, hatred, counterfeiting, domineering and controlling people, devastation, demolition, disagreements, strife, illegal income, and crooks of all types (similar to Saturn in this way)
  4. In simple terms, the location and everything related to Mars in the comprehensive charts reveals anger and discord.
  5. The most potent heavenly body (not the modern astrology “chart ruler,” the Ascendant ruler) in a person’s comprehensive charts and the connected factors and patterns offer a great deal of information about personality traits and personal fate. If it happens to be Mars, the person may have a temper and be prone to occasional outbursts of anger. He or she will also be a fighter and a survivor. The burden they carry often has to do with conflicts and controversy in their professional and, or personal life, and combative relationships of all kinds.
  6. As with Saturn, also known as a malefic planet, a very healthy and well-positioned Mars can symbolize great riches and honor.
  7. Astrological transits, in my view, are mostly insignificant. Though I am mindful of transiting Mars (and Saturn), particularly as it hits the natal 1st, 4th, 7th, or 10th Disturbance and disruption are commonplace, as it relates to the unique circumstances of those houses in your comprehensive charts. For example, if Mars is the most potent planet in your comprehensive charts and it’s in a series of nasty patterns involving your 7th house, look out. As it transits your natal 7th, expect problems in partnerships, professional or personal (if corroborated with other factors, as always).

Mars may be known as an aggressive bully, but it can represent rewards too. Mars (and all factors linked to it) reveals a great deal about personal fate, timing, and character.

Caution: Mars and Saturn Retrograde March 2014

Monday, February 24th, 2014
Share Button

As displayed in the 2014 astrology bar graph in this blog post, Mars and Saturn are retrograde starting the beginning of March. Additionally, Pluto is retrograde starting April 14.

Mars retrograde: 3-1-2014, 8:23 a.m. PST, 27 degrees 31 minutes Libra.

Saturn retrograde: 3-2-2014, 8:19 a.m. PST, 23 degrees 19 minutes Scorpio.

Pluto retrograde: 4-14-2014, 3:47 p.m. PST, 13 degrees 34 minutes Capricorn.

Retrograde representatively harms a heavenly body’s health; it’s one of many possible afflictions. The worse a heavenly body’s health, the more important it becomes toward symbolizing negative circumstances.

A Mars, Saturn, or Pluto retrograde by itself, in a universal sense applied to everyone, wouldn’t make much of a symbolic impact. However, these three retrogrades combined, along with the following details, caught my attention:

  1. Saturn is transiting the sign of Scorpio. Mars rules the sign of Scorpio (in ancient Greek/Egyptian/Arabic astrology, which I’ve found to be more accurate than modern astrology or Hindu astrology). A heavenly body’s ruler by sign has a direct impact on its health. Thus, the health of Saturn at this time is made even worse because its ruler (Mars) is not only retrograde, but in detriment (bad health) by sign, transiting the sign of Libra. An unhealthy Saturn is very undesirable.
  2. As mentioned above, Mars is retrograde and in detriment by sign, transiting the sign of Libra (until the end of July). This makes for a very adverse Mars.
  3. The ruler of Mars by sign while it transits the sign of Libra is Venus (Venus rules Libra). Venus is not retrograde, but it is in detriment (bad health) by sign during most of May as it transits the sign of Aries (which is ruled by Mars). The secondary ruler of Mars by sign during its transit through the sign of Libra is Saturn (Saturn is exalted in Libra).
  4. Transiting Pluto is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn. Saturn’s poor health is noted above and lasts through most of July. The secondary ruler of Capricorn is Mars (Mars is exalted in Capricorn). As noted above, Mars is significantly debilitated until the end of May, and still in poor health until the end of July.

Therefore, based on sign rulerships and retrogrades alone, which have a significant impact on a heavenly body’s overall well-being, Mars and Saturn are essentially very inebriated, unable to help one another as they stumble around, looking for trouble. Mars is belligerent, wants to start a fight, and since he’s with Saturn, authority figures are involved. Venus, not quite as inebriated, joins the wicked duo in May and makes things more complicated. Pluto further complicates things in April and May.

Read more about the frequency of retrogrades, transiting retrograde possible circumstances, and other information about retrogrades starting at about two-thirds through this blog post.

Again, a single universal affliction doesn’t mean much relative to everyday happenings. But multiple afflictions at the same time have a much greater symbolic impact. A lunar eclipse and solar eclipse also occur during April (additional afflictions), further figuratively aggravating conditions. Read more about eclipses here.

February through May 2014 spans a period in which the negative circumstances are at a peak involving the above-mentioned phenomena. I wouldn’t refer to it as a “perfect storm,” but it’s a fascinating collusion of negative symbolism. I state February instead of early March because my findings show that the difficulties symbolic of retrogrades start in the weeks leading up to the beginning of the retrograde.

If Mars and, or Saturn (or Moon and, or Sun during the eclipses) are very healthy in your comprehensive charts, you have less to be concerned about. However, the more unhealthy they are, the more these negative circumstances will symbolically impact your life.

The harsh symbolism is potent for an individual born under this window of time, as well as any significant union or endeavor commenced; it’s inauspicious relating to the circumstances outlined in the second linked blog post above and the final paragraph below.

In a collective or worldwide sense, these combined negative energies could be said to symbolize heightened geopolitical tensions. Political turmoil and civil strife involving violent clashes between protestors and police in Thailand, Venezuela, and Ukraine are occurring at this time. Could I have predicted today’s troubling scenarios in these specific countries years ago, based on the above celestial afflictions? No. However, the evil forces of the noted hazard zone, February through May, do emblematically exacerbate existing circumstances. Things just get worse.

Please note, in this blog post, and this blog post, I explain why my work focuses mostly on individuals instead of mundane predictions involving geopolitical concerns, financial markets, and entire economies.

Please do go about your business like you normally would. Just be a little more careful. Greater strife and misdirected aggression than normal, enemies reappearing in your life, power struggles, heightened fears, issues with authority, father issues, as well as very sluggish progress with on-going projects, are key concepts during this period from February through May signified by the cosmic incidents outlined above, including Mars and Saturn retrograde.

Q & A: Sign of Scorpio and its Ruler Mars

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012
Share Button

“I was wondering how masculine mars can rule a feminine sign like Scorpio? I’m not sure if the ancients saw Scorpio as the sign of sex, perhaps that was assigned to Leo and the 5th house? Also, if Scorpio does rule sex, isn’t that more of the domain of the feminine (perhaps sharing more in common with the moon?) which governs the mysteries of birth, death, the womb, etc…? Also, mars doesn’t seem like to be a reflective energy, it just acts on impulse, whereas Scorpio is instinctive and determined it is also introspective? Thank you!”

Empirical observation over many centuries resulted in the most fitting rulers. It’s best to avoid seeing an issue between a masculine planet and feminine sign–they don’t have to match to be ruler/ruled—and I recommend avoiding over-simplifying the matter of sex.

I wouldn’t say Scorpio rules sex exclusively, at all. Sex related to astrology is a complex issue. It’s not one sign, it’s not one house, and it’s not one planet. There are dozens of variables.

Also, sex is not exclusively the domain of the feminine. Be careful to avoid embracing warped modern astrological concepts.

As to Mars not being “a reflective energy” and Scorpio being what you imply, Mars doesn’t have to be “reflective” to rule Scorpio, to be blunt, and whether or not Mars represents acting on impulse depends on its health and many other factors. I wouldn’t say the sign of Scorpio automatically can be linked to determination and introspection either.

Again, I recommend avoiding modern astrological theory, for the most part. It will only mislead you. Psychological astrology is largely a distorted version of authentic astrology–too creative in a detrimental way, like bratty, immature children playing a game, making up the rules to suit a self-serving agenda.

Mars is masculine, nocturnal, and overall a problematic force, but it can be made a very positive force through excellent health and placement. The sign of Scorpio is a feminine sign, as in energy coming to it, not moving outwardly from it, like with masculine signs. Also, please don’t confuse “feminine” (related to astrology) with beauty and grace.

Mars is also dignified in the sign of Aries, and it is exalted in the sign of Capricorn. I recommend studying the planets first, then how they function in the various signs.

Please see this article, along with the linked articles at the end for more information about astrology:

Comprehensive astrology and numerology, used in conjunction with handwriting analysis, allows for enhancing your awareness of human behavior, thus, reducing your exposure to risk.

Astrology Q & A: “What Does Jupiter and Mars in my 7th House Mean?”

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Question: “What does Jupiter and Mars in my 7th House Mean?”

Answer:  It means many things, all of which depend on the other 500+ factors you must consider in a comprehensive analysis.

To get a surface-oriented assessment, one that will most likely, ultimately be over-ruled by the collective energy of the other indicators, you could look on this blog post for the general meaning of, for example, the planet Mars, and then the meaning of the 7th house. Put those two together, and you have, possibly, aggression and, or strife in partnerships.

There is no “this means that” answer, that is, if you want a decent level of accuracy. The meaning of any single indicator is wholly based on the collective symbolism of the other factors throughout the comprehensive charts.

Jupiter, for instance, can just as easily relate to over-indulgence, destructive excess, and wastefulness as it can abundance and rewards, depending on other factors.

How to go about discerning the symbolism, for example, relating to the question, “What Does Jupiter and Mars in my 7th House Mean?”:

1. Study the meaning of the planets Mars and Jupiter thoroughly–and put most emphasis on the ancient meanings, not the modern, overly-creative and psychological-based meanings. By “ancient,” I’m referring to from ancient times up to around 1600 AD.

2. Consider the signs in which the planets reside, and consider how the planets act in those signs, based on dignification, for instance (i.e., Mars is dignified in Aries).

3. Study the meaning of the 7th house—again, the ancient meanings, not the modern ones.

4. Study the meaning of Mars and Jupiter acting through those signs, in that house (7th).

5. What is the ruler of your 7th? The ruler of the 7th is the strongest planet associated with that house. It may be Jupiter or Mars, or it may be some other heavenly body.

6. Are Mars or Jupiter afflicted? There are many possible afflictions, including debilitated by sign or by Ptolemaic aspect. Weigh the afflictions.

7. Are Mars and Jupiter supported/emboldened by other heavenly bodies (i.e., reception), which would help to mitigate the symbolic energy of an affliction?

8. Study the rulers of Mars and Jupiter—how are they relative to what I say above for Mars and Jupiter (afflicted?, etc.).

9. What else is in your 7th?

10. What is the sign on the 7th cusp and what is/where is its ruler or rulers? How is the health of those ruler or rulers?

The above steps are a good start in learning astrology, one of the languages of fate.
