Mars in 12th House atal Mars in the 12th house can be a rather disturbing or even dangerous placement, as its presence here indicates difficulties in expressing one’s anger and aggressive emotions. This can have as a result violent explosions when the oppressed energy reaches a critical level, and people with such an aspect must definitely learn techniques of anger-management. A twelfth house Mars indicates that the native can have been bullied as a child, or even be a victim of physical attacks. Even if this did not actually happen, the nature of the 12th house can have brought to the individual a lot of fears concerning physical violence. As a child, he may have been frequently afraid of being beaten by other children or even his parents. This placement can create traumas or even make the native feel like a coward. These fears of being bullied without being able to properly retaliate build a pattern of preferring to flee rather than fight, mostly due to insecurities related to the outcome of the fight. The native is afraid of being defeated and will often avoid conflicts even with a less powerful opponent, just to be sure that he will not lose. Also, during the childhood years, expressing anger was being kind of forbidden. The native’s parents and other people surrounding him were not tolerating powerful outbursts of the child, which in turn was leading him to have introversive implosions rather than a healthy direction of possible negative emotions. Holding those feelings inside definitely brings feelings of restlessness, and such repressing tendencies either make him burst when anger reaches a threshold or (in more difficult situations) bring a lot of self-undoing and auto-destructive actions. On the other hand, Mars placed in the 12th house can give a lot of power connected with the occult fields. The individual can channel his energy into studying and understanding the spiritual realms, and dedicate quite a lot of effort. Usually, as Martial energy brings actions, the individual will not only theoretically study the occult but also get involved in its practice. In case that Mars is adversely aspected, especially by “malefics” such as Pluto and Saturn, the person is advised to stay away from magickal practice because he can both create a lot of hidden enemies but also hurt other people and himself. A badly aspected Mars shows that he has no firm control of his energy and violent emotions, and thus he can even cause conscious malice to others when his wrath or hatred go beyond control. A person with natal Mars in the 12th house is strongly advised to strengthen its function, and the best way is by indulging into an active life. Sports, martial arts and all activities that empower the body can heal the native’s self-confidence, providing to Mars the necessary energy, and especially the necessary channels for it to flow outwards. In addition, such a native should battle his fears of anger expression and allow such outbursts. Even the fact of de-demonizing them will have a positive effect, as he will no longer struggle by burying such emotions deep in his psyche. In some situations, the newborn individual may have experienced pain during childbirth. This can, in turn, make him feel that the world outside of his mother’s womb is violent and threatening. If Mars is adversely aspected, the individual can develop fears and paranoia concerning war and mass calamities. Indeed, Mars in the 12th house is not the best placement for such events, especially if it is located near the Ascendant. A twelfth house Mars person should try to keep away from guns, wars, demonstrations and sharp machinery, as there are quite a lot of possibilities to have an accident. Mars in the 12th house can indeed bring hidden enemies, especially males. But what is more frequent to happen is phobias about having hidden enemies, even if they do not exist. Actually, the appearance of some real enemies among friends will make the native cautious in his approach, always searching for hidden behaviors in other people near him. Being backstabbed in the past makes him want to prevent that to happen again, so he will often even become paranoiac, imagining hidden tactics in other people’s movements. In addition, his alert makes him always ready to strike first, and there are quite a lot of possibilities that he will accidentally hurt someone just because of fear of being hurt. As the 12th house is connected with social institutions, the native may have some involvement with prisons, hospitals or monasteries. If Mars has positive aspects, the native may gain quite a lot of experience from working on such projects in institutions of restriction. On the other hand, difficult aspects can indicate bad luck with those, so a native is firmly advised to keep far from any criminal activity as it may bring a legal trouble and possibilities of imprisonment. Seriously, with a 12th house Mars, the risks of getting caught are quite big, as also the chances of betrayal from a friend who is a snitch. Stay clear of anything illegal.
Mars in 11th House hen Mars is in the 11th house, the house of friendships, groups and organizations, the native dedicates a lot of energy and effort towards empowering and maintaining his position in society. His public image is of great importance, and he strives to become a center of attention. Mars in the 11th house can be a double-sided knife; when well aspected it can grant great leadership abilities. On the contrary, when hard aspects apply on the planet, his friendships and unions with groups can be quite competitive and destructive, becoming a thorn in the native’s soul instead of being a road of self-development. The native usually strives to form groups so that he achieves his personal goals, and enlarges his cycle frequently without caring to nurture previous friendships. His approach towards obtaining new friends is rather aggressive and competitive, often battling with them on Alpha Male roles. He might join sports organizations or military-centered clubs, seek friends through hobbies that involve physical activity or that have something to do with weapons. When natal Mars has a difficult aspect (square, opposition and sometimes conjunction) with Jupiter, the amount of friends and acquaintances tends to get out of control, creating problems of sentimental instability to the native. Everyone seems to be a friend, but the real ones are either none or just a few. Even in the latter, he most probably does not recognize them, as he mostly dedicates time to the most physically active friends than to the ones who have him more dearly in their hearts. Even if the native enjoys groups, he cannot be called a team-player, and diminishing his egoism would be one of the best ways for self-development and spiritual progress. When the native understands that cooperation is necessary for the fulfillment of his own ambitions, the positive traits of Mars will be triggered and the planet will start to function more harmonically. Also, fanaticism should be by all means avoided; Mars in the 11th house can frequently drive the native to become part of groups that are hatred-based and which will furthermore debilitate the functions of Mars in his natal chart. Becoming a part of such groups might be an outcome of a difficult childhood, where the native was frequently bullied by other children and tries to regain confidence and meaning in friendships. Unfortunately, sometimes he tends to react the same way that he was treated, spreading the same pattern to other people. Bullying and physical molest in childhood are mostly present in people that have Pluto, Uranus or Saturn square natal Mars. In case that Mars is positioned in Scorpio, there could be sexual abuse of some type too. Generally, people with Mars in the 11th house are very passionate, searching for active people as friends and trying to dedicate a lot of time in activities that involve some type of movement. They get bored quite easily, and if the friend does not have the spark of action inside him, they quite easily abandon him. They are definitely not submissive types, which actually makes a lot of friendships pass awkward phases of competitiveness, as they are not attracted to passive types of people. There exist frequent power games with friends, and being the center of the group really matters to them. They can only allow people that they genuinely admire, to be center of their groups instead of them. If they do not like the person that is at the center of the group, they either leave or try to gain their position, sometimes using mischievous means to obtain it. Their friends usually have strong Aries/Mars characteristics in their natal chart, and quarreling with them is rather frequent – even if it is lighthearted and for fun. They tend to be impatient and receive great satisfaction in being admired and in leading. When they are lost in the crowd, though, they get frustrated and can easily erupt. They do not like governmental rules, nor being patient in situations as standing in lines. If Mars is aspecting Uranus, they tend to join anarchistic or other revolutionary groups, and generally get involved in riots and other types of actions that bring disorder. In case that Mars is only positively aspected by other planets, the native will rise in power in his group and become a head of it. The nature of the group is usually determined by the sign where the 11th house cusp is located, and if it is Aquarius it usually involves some kind of political agitation towards revolt. If in Scorpio, then there is a high probability of being part of a secret society, often having either money, magic or sex involved. If the cusp falls in Aries, then the organization is either of military or of athletic purposes, while when the cusp lies in Leo or Pisces, theatre and artistic performances could be the concept. Another thing that the native with such a placement should be careful of, is possible oppositions of Mars in the 11th house to planets in the 5th house. If such an opposition exists, then there is a high possibility for difficulties between love and friendships. They either tend to fall in love with friends or to lose their loved ones because of friends. It is quite likely that some friend of them gets in an affair with his significant other, which of course afterward makes Mars in the 11th house explode its aggression with all the consequences that this could have. A third issue that could appear is to have to choose between love and friends, as there might exist situations where these two sections of life cannot function together at the same time.
Mars in 10th House ars is the planet of force, the masculine drive for moving forward and battling our way through surroundings. Therefore, located in the 10th house which is responsible for one’s establishment and reputation, it affects everything associated with the individual’s social image. Professional roles and their fulfillments, career orientation and honor are just some of the subjects that are ruled by the 10th house in a person’s life. Also, it represents authority figures and thus, anything that has to do with governmental services is depicted in it. The dominant parent can be observed through the 10th house condition, as he has been leading the native as a role model in the first steps of his life. In general, both people and organizations that have power over a person, and the way that he exercises it on others are shown in this celestial area of the chart. Having Mars in the 10th house gives a life orientated towards personal success and achievements in one’s career. Nevertheless, it by no means grants success by itself. Mars as a personal planet shows the direction towards which effort is being made; it is the aspects with other planets that shows whether success is to be reached or the efforts will be mostly vain. The condition of generational planets (Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) and their aspects to Mars have a big role, for they are the ones opening the gates to successful recognition from the masses. Mars in the 10th house drives the native to fight and struggle for respect through all of his life. This, along with the martial characteristics of the planet, can guide someone to choose a military career. Indeed, this placement can make a native strive to recognition through raising his rank, which can also appear to many people that have Aries on the cusp of their 10th house and important celestial bodies inside. If Mars is not well-aspected, it can bring disputes with other military staff and unhealthy competition. One should be very careful not to indulge in behind-the-scenes activities in his working place, as there is a high possibility of being discovered and disgraced. On the other hand, the raw energy that the planet enforces on 10th house matters gives a lot of enthusiasm to the native, strengthening his will to fulfill his goals. In a woman’s horoscope, it can bring a manly approach to career matters, making her more powerful than men in her surroundings, in promoting ideas and enforcing decisions. The person has the need to do the things their own way, granting strong feelings of success when their ideas are implemented. On the other hand, failure is for them a sharp knife that would hurt them more than it would hurt any other average person. Failures can have aggression as an effect, a pattern which is likely to have passed from the dominant parent, especially if Mars is poorly afflicted. It makes the individual prone to resign from his profession if his honor is at stake, or if he takes some failures very personally. As Mars rules physical power, athletics as a profession is strongly connected with it. Mars is the ruler of all jobs with uniforms too, thus being responsible for careers in the police and for doctors, especially those who are of chirurgical background. We should not forget that knives, sharp instruments, and generally everything involving metal, their use, and their transformation are under the influence of the red planet. A lot of important surgeons have Mars in the 10th house. The presence of Scorpio on the house cusp or adverse aspects from Pluto to Mars can create a person who actually takes pleasure from using knives, even from inflicting pain on others. This does not mean though that he would not be a good professional. The adverse aspects show conflicts and emotional separation from the dominant parent in the young ages and can manifest accordingly in his vocation. Mars being in Taurus or Libra is an indicator of moral scandal, and natives with this placement should concentrate in keeping their ethics and strategies clean in their profession. All these apply even stronger when Mars in the 10th house is near the Midheaven; then power can become an obsession. Sometimes it is wiser for the native to work alone and not in a group, in order to avoid conflicts and aggression. Another pattern that is frequently observed, is that the placement can bring success in quite young years, which is indeed common in careers like the military or sports. A negative impact that Mars frequently has when in the 10th is few good human relations with people, mostly because the native himself tries to dominate his surroundings and is prone to be competitive. The most problematic aspects that can occur are squares, oppositions, and conjunctions with Saturn, Uranus or Pluto. People with such kind of placements can have problems with the government, troubles through their aggression and violent behavior, and should exercise techniques for reducing their anger and channel it elsewhere. By strengthening the difficult natal positions with handling their violent outbreaks, they can harmonize all 10th house issues and also heal the remnants of conflicts with their parent. In sports, this position can signify the athlete who is not a team player, influencing adversely his acceptance from others even if he is better than them in physical terms. The lesson needed is to understand that unless he harmonizes his activity with the rest of the team, the difficult aspects that might exist will be triggered, leading to a lack of balance in other fields of his life too. The native has a strong urge to show off his body and physical abilities and should be careful not to overdo that. On the other hand, Mars in the 10th house indeed gives good body characteristics and performances, especially when the Ascendant falls in Aries. Under no circumstances should such a native exercise physical abuse towards his family members. He might have experienced it himself and have it as a normal recorded way of acting in his mind’s patterns, but this is his chance of stopping the loop. In case he succeeds to push his aggressiveness towards constructive actions, the rewards from life will be generous. And for him, they would matter even more, because they would be highly connected with 10th house issues, exactly the ones that he is all his life striving for.
Mars in 9th House ars in the 9th house is probably one of the best natal positions it can have, at least concerning the native himself. Mars will activate all the 9th house matters, which involve things that the masses do not usually reach; a lot of distant travels, a good education as well as relocation to a place where the native would prefer to live. The native will be able to channel tremendous amounts of energy towards higher education and learning. In addition, as the ninth house rules publishing, he will most probably write something that will be read by the masses. This might be connected with religion, travel, sports or even military matters. People with this natal placement can become accomplished in teaching, usually on the subjects mentioned above. Mars in the 9th house creates the sports trainer, the geopolitics writer, while also may make the person write about machinery and martial arts. A usual phenomenon is that he develops a circle of fan readers, whom he may easily manipulate and use for his causes. Mars in the 9th house gives a strong interest in religion, making the native dedicate a lot of time in reading various books and writings. This placement creates the preacher and the missionary, and the person may indulge in attempts of converting others to his religion through proselytism. In cases that Mars is negatively aspected, he will be a religious fanatic or a zealot, trying to push his beliefs on other people. Of course, in such occasions, he will meet resistance and his aggressive perceptions will have an adverse effect on himself. People who have their natal Mars in the 9th house are so sure about the correctness of their opinion, that they become narrow-minded and offensive towards alternative views. On the other hand, they have a quite honest approach to these matters: they firmly believe in what they say and are ready to defend it by any means. Mars here gives a love of debating, and of course, makes the native enjoy victories. This natal placement will make the person travel a lot to distant places, and his activities there can also be connected with some kind of sport. In case that Mars is adversely aspected by “malefics”, the native might suffer some kind of incidents in his distant travels. Tensions could arise with locals due to religious, cultural or racial differences, while it can also happen that he arrives in the country during political turmoil and destabilization. In such chaotic circumstances, he can be attacked or survive other types of dangerous situations; in the most extreme form, he could witness some kind of war. Of course, if Mars is well-aspected only good things can come from foreign places, always depending on which planets form sextiles and trines, while also the houses the planets are located in. The 9th house is traditionally ruled by Jupiter, and the presence of Mars will make the (otherwise harsh) red planet have a rather humoristic approach on reality. The native will have a great sense of humor and will like good jokes. Also, people with his placement tend to laugh a lot, having a zest for life and expansion. Their enthusiasm can move mountains, and their restless heart will not hesitate to do risky steps forward. Such people can easily switch on “YOLO” mood, which, if Mars is well-aspected, will reward them in a way that no other mortal can experience. Yes, they are the ones that will break their borders of fear and try parachutes, bungee-jumping or other activities that require balls. This natal placement of Mars may give to the native permanent relocation to some distant land, while actually, that foreign place is where he will find his spiritual road. Mars in the 9th house can make the native relocate due to embracing a new religion, and can even literally mean fighting for it. Mars will fill the native’s heart with fire for this sacred pilgrimage, making it a very important part of his life. Getting actively involved in a spiritual path is a wonderful thing. Such an individual can discover his personal truths, which will, in turn, brighten his existence. The only thing he should be careful of is pressing other people to receive his own truths as theirs. In order to ascend to higher spiritual levels, one should understand that an absolute and universal truth does not exist and that every person has the right to follow his own path. Provided that the native respects this spiritual rule, he will evolve towards a higher soul and reach inner balances. Becoming a zealot though, will only quench his egoistic thirst of acceptance. Choose wisely.
Mars in 8th House Natal Mars in the 8th house is one of the most potent placements for the fiery planet. Mars is the co-ruler (or old ruler) of Scorpio, before planet Pluto was discovered, and still holds a lot of power over the 8th house matters. Being in domicile, it will boost sexuality; nevertheless, the aggressive nature of the planet can also create problems in life areas ruled by the eighth house. Mars usually brings a violent death, which happens rather suddenly. This placement could bring a death by a sharp object, a bullet, an accident or war. In case that the planet has good aspects from other celestial bodies, it would bring at least one near-death experience. The chart owner will get transformed; usually in a very positive way. After that experience, his gates to the other realms will permanently be more open than previously, and it may even grant psychic powers. The individual with Mars in the 8th house will have an interest in the occult; nevertheless, the aggressive nature of the planet will probably make him be too hasty; he will try things early without being ready enough. If Mars is adversely aspected, there exists a danger of supernatural attacks or experiments that will go wrong. The native’s sexual life will be more than active. Mars positioned in the house of sex will bring fiery traits to his intimate relations and of the strongest thirst for experiences in bed. Sex is for them a very important channel for recharging and letting go all cumulated negativity. They will prefer it violent and will have an aggressive attitude over it. The native’s desire will be very strong, and all relationships will be of a passionate nature. If Mars is adversely aspected with Pluto or with Saturn, the native can become a victim of abuse, usually of a sexual nature. If Mars is well-aspected, it indicates an active breaking of taboos both for the native and his partners. Mars in the house of other people’s money may bring a lot of quarrels and disagreements in this area. The native may fight over an inheritance or have problems dividing a property or financial gains with other people. Issues can also arise in his marital life, as Mars in the 8th house indicates a marriage partner that will have financial losses. This can raise tensions inside the marriage partnership concerning joint finances. In addition, this natal aspect can be a bad indication for any type of loans through an institution. The most possible outcome is that the loan will not be paid back, which will furthermore complicate the native’s finances. The native with Mars in the 8th house can be of a very jealous nature, easily becoming obsessive about things. When he needs to possess something and sets such a goal, he may dedicate himself totally to it and even use dubious means to get it. This applies not only to money and material things but also to people by whom the native wants to feel as being owned. With an adversely aspected Mars, the native can become so jealous that he may even exercise violence towards the desired person that betrayed him. If Mars is afflicted by Mercury, these two planets combine in making the individual a successful thief. The 8th house also rules money from the banks or the government, and with such an aspect the native might indulge in putting his hand inside the jar. Be careful, because if you grab a lot, then the hand might get stuck inside. All these Martian traits described here should be tamed so that they do not backfire. This mostly applies to people who see squares, oppositions, and difficult conjunctions to their natal Mars, of course. The rest can relax, they have probably already learned how to control the eruptive character of the red planet.
Mars in 7th House aving natal Mars in the 7th house can be a rather difficult placement for marital affairs. As the house is traditionally ruled by Libra and Venus, the powerful red planet can bring disturbances if located here; nevertheless, there are a lot of other factors to be observed before reaching such conclusions. Mars might be considered a malefic planet, and indeed is of a rather aggressive nature. When he is ill-aspected, he will always cause tensions to whatever he touches. This could also seem the case when he is located in the house of marriage, but it is not always like that. The definite outcome is that the native’s spouse will be of a competitive and eruptive nature, no matter what kind of aspects Mars has with other planets. And indeed, the native will himself seek such a personality for a partner, as he cannot get attached to passive people. What happens after is a different story though, one that we will try to explain by dividing the situations into categories. Of course, this is only a rough template; every person is different and there is a lot more than black and white in one’s marriage. Well, in this case, we are talking about red. The red of passion, which in other situations can even be the red of blood. Mars in the 7th house tends to bring a marriage partner with a heavy Aries/Mars emphasis in his natal chart. He will frequently have Mars in his first house, and may be of a military background. There is a possibility of him doing any type of work connected with uniform: an officer, a soldier, a policeman, a firefighter, an athlete or a surgeon. His character will be rather touchy and eruptive, while his body will be robust, well-shaped and athletic. Many times, the body will be a huge reason for attraction towards the partner; the sexual energy created between the two natives will be of the strongest nature, even blinding the natal chart owner. Generally, if you are seeking a harmonic marriage and you have this aspect, rethink about it. But probably, having this aspect will make you seek the opposite, and ignore this piece of advice. In case that Mars is well placed by sign and well aspected, it will bring a person fond of sports and action. The couple can be engaged together in extreme activities, and find their own type of balance through expelling the Martian energy in constructive ways. They can travel together a lot, do extreme sports, both be military or policemen and so on. There will be a lot of competitiveness between them, but in the end, they will both progress through it. Here, we should again mention that engaging in activities that release the natural aggression of Mars is obligatory. In case they stay too much at home and try to enforce routines, at least one of them will revolt against the other. Mars is in a strong need of releasing the adrenaline that cumulates. If this is not done systematically and in a controlled environment, it eventually reaches the point of explosion. This is quite easy to understand. When you re-cooking in a casserole, you do not close the lid and just leave it there. An explosion is the natural outcome. On the other hand, an adversely aspected Mars in the 7th house might be more than catastrophic. Watch out, especially for squares, conjunctions and oppositions to Pluto and Saturn. These aspects can make the marriage partner violent, and can even bring physical abuse. The least they will bring is a marital life full of quarrels, with a lot of nerves and high voices. The most possible ending of such a marriage is a divorce, after many troubles; especially for the native that has his Mars in the 7th house. In business matters, Mars placed in the 7th house can give competitive partners with disputes too. Roughly the same rules apply here as in the matters of marriage; both partners will want to exercise power on each other and this will lead to power struggles. With good natal aspects, this will actually lead to a good team with an aggressive approach towards the market and can make them excel in sales. Adverse aspects will not only bring failures in business, but also lawsuits that will eventually harm both in some way. Generally, Mars in the 7th house does not favor dealings with the law, and the native might even lose his cases due to aggressive behavior in the court. The judges will tend to be prejudiced against him, and even if he is the right one, he might seem like the wrongdoer. This natal aspect can bring unpopularity after such a trial, and even public disgrace. In addition, as the 7th house rules one’s open enemies, such people will exist during the entire native’s life and frequently show their teeth in various ways. Generally, be very careful if you have your Mars placed there. The red planet in the 7th house does not function by itself alone; it always takes two to tango. You are probably a similar strong source of aggression towards your partner, and what you receive mirrors what you radiate. Indeed, maybe you receive it in a harsher and multiplied way, but be wise enough to cut the source and redirect the explosive energy elsewhere; those would be some first steps for reaching a necessary balance.
Mars in 6th House In case that a person’s natal Mars is located in the 6th house of his chart, his job will constantly devour the biggest part of his energy. Mars is not joking in this placement; the 6th house doesn’t only rule one’s work, but his health too. Unless the red planet is very well-aspected, the native should be very careful not to over-work and not to put his health in danger. Mars in the 6th house brings all kinds of jobs connected with physical strength and the enforcement of power. It also rules uniforms, so when placed here it can create the military, the policeman, the athlete, while also the surgeon. In addition, it gives jobs connected to operating tools and instruments that cut, different types of machinery and everything involving weapons. Thus, there is a wide range of occupations that he gives; even if the rule is that the job will be a rather active one, there are still possibilities of just being employed in a shop that sells knives, guns or tools. Also, all categories of metallurgy fall under this rulership; this is the natal placement of the blacksmith and common occupations. Such a native is never lazy and can become very frustrated when he sees others procrastinating. His patterns are rather structured, even of a militaristic type. He will wake up very early, spend a lot of hours working and most probably will impose to himself a very strict routine. In addition, he will eat and sleep at the same time every day, follow special diets for a long time, and will prefer clothes of a certain style and will stick to it. These people know how to make things done and can accomplish a lot more in a work day than nearly anyone else. Indeed, Mars in the 6th house can give superpowers at work. It will also strengthen the leadership abilities of the native; what he says will be done by the ones under his authority. Quickly and correctly, because if they do not do it as they should, the native will explode towards them. The type of leadership the native develops usually isn’t the one that inspires, but the one that induces fear. Extremely pushy and very authoritarian, the native will not be liked by many; nevertheless, his methods bring results. Mars in the 6th house can indicate inflammatory disorders and high fevers; the native’s health is easily afflicted by sudden rushes, migraines and all types of diseases that make the body temperature rise. Curiously enough, the native’s health issues are strongly connected to anger and conflicts in his work and will follow similar patterns. If Mars is adversely afflicted then there will be frequent quarrels and competition in his job surroundings, which will furthermore create health issues, usually of a quick nature. If the native is of a very violent and argumentative nature and has chronic tendencies to clash with co-workers or people under his authority, then the anger will definitely manifest as a disease that will need a surgery. Furthermore, difficult aspects to Mars indicate accidents in his job surroundings, mostly connected with machinery, weapons and sharp objects. One thing is sure when Mars is challenged: it brings blood. If you have a difficult Mars and want to soften his functions consider calming yourself down and seeing your work less seriously. Fanaticism should be abandoned and the Martian energy challenged to more recreative activities such as sports. You should definitely become softer towards people around you; it is not the planet Mars who is to be blamed, it is you, projecting his most violent traits. Thus, the only way to change the possible health difficulties is changing your own perception of your occupation. Natal Mars in the 6th house brings a love for aggressive animals. People with this placement will prefer to have an angry Doberman than a friendly puddle, a badass Bulldog than a lazy cat. They usually train it to become violent, which can be a huge mistake as they, in the end, copy its behavior and become aggressive too. In case that Mars is afflicted, the animal owner will get in some kind of trouble with his pet, and there is even a chance of being attacked by it some day. With this placement, we definitely advise against obtaining such a pet and against training it in a way that will furthermore release the violent energy of Mars. Of course, as you sow so shall you reap; thus do not complain if such a pet as a company will make you more vicious.
Mars in 5th House Those born with natal Mars in the 5th house are blessed to live a life full of activity. As the fifth house rules everything that is recreational, fun and promotes self-expression, Mars makes the native dedicate his energy towards affairs ruled by this placement. With the 5th house traditionally ruled by Leo, Mars finds a positive fiery surrounding to express itself and feels quite at home. This placement is rather positive and, if supported by beneficial aspects, can lead to a very vivid and joyful life. The 5th house involves everything linked to playing, should it be flirting, being involved in physical recreational activities, gaming or even gambling. The red planet placed there influences all types of pleasure and indulgence, offering to the native a playful reality. Fun is something very important in their lives, and they strive to engage in activities with friends, usually being the one in the center of attention. The strong competitive spirit usually makes such natives bad loser, but even then the procedure of the game is what matters for them the most. Such kind of people are great for becoming sports coaches and for working with children athletics, they can easily become a role model for them. Leading an active life style is something very important for people with Mars in the 5th house, and outdoor activities in nature are pretty common. These people just cannot enclose themselves within four walls; Mars needs freedom and does not accept being captured in a stable reality. As the fifth house is also connected with love, Mars placed there would make the native approach his sympathy without shame. Indeed, they tend to make the first step, and numerous love affairs is a common pattern to be observed. Mars loves to conquer, and he does not easily accept losing in this particular game. Multiple partners, sudden attachments, and breakdowns are frequent to appear, and this could lead to the natural outcome of breaking lover’s hearts and emotions. Mars needs to socialize, to conquer more and more, and does not feel well when everything is programmed and stable. Such kind of people enjoy the struggle of obtaining something new; they see that as a game and sometimes cannot even realize that this could lead dear people around them to disappointment. Mars in the 5th house is beneficial for having children, and it is likely that the first child will be a boy. If not, then it will either have a lot of Aries/Martian characteristics or will be hyperactive and behave like a male. In any situation, the child will copy the parent’s approach towards life, fun and physical activities, and become a very active person itself. The native should be very careful to be soft and tender in his approach towards the child. Mars usually brings strict discipline, and the parent should always keep in mind not to exercise physical or psychological violence on the child. Both the child and the parent should exercise sports or hobbies, to channel the possible aggressive behaviors into constructive activities. This placement makes the person highly creative, investing a lot of his energy in his hobbies. Hobbies tend to become their personal way of meditation and of expelling superfluous energy. Taking risks makes their adrenaline and serotonins flow strong, even if this can also lead to the natural consequences of losing. Gambling is a beloved activity for a 5th house Martian, but in case there are negative aspects with “malefics”, big losses are indicated. Having a difficult aspect with Neptune can make the native combine gambling with alcohol or other substances; of course, the most possible outcomes in such situations are disappointments both for them and people around them. Nevertheless, if there exists a trine with Jupiter or Venus, the native has high possibilities of earning through such games. The same applies when Uranus is in positive aspects with Mars in the 5th house but, in such a case, the gain would come unexpectedly and not through regular gambling. People with Mars in the 5th house can excel in theatre; most times this will not be something professional but rather exercised as a hobby. They can join amateur artistic clubs, but usually, their need for competition brings tensions and they can frequently change groups. They tend to also use melodrama in their personal life, which can sometimes be funny but also turn hurtful for their dear people. They like to show off their abilities and adore getting attention; of course, this could even ridicule them if their abilities have not reached a respectable level. A person with this placement should be careful not to explode his suppressed anger onto dear people, especially in situations when he feels losing in some competitive action, or that control is out of his hands. Softening can occur when the positive qualities of Mars are used for channeling the aggression. The person must realize that egoism is his primal enemy and that in controlling it, he can actually enhance the quality of his recreational time. The people around him would feel fair-treated, and would enjoy such activities; else it is probable that the native will not be followed by them into games and fun. If natal Mars is very close to the 5th house cusp, and in very difficult aspects to Uranus or Pluto, the native can have suffered child abuse. In such a situation he should be very cautious that this pattern does not occur towards his own child because it is deeply hidden in his subconscious and can appear as an uncontrolled motive. The native will strive to give love to his child, but will not understand that his eruptions can create an unhealthy environment. When the aspects involve Neptune, the native cannot even remember his acts or words of violence. This can happen both by being under influence of alcohol and other substances, or by neurotic subconscious outbursts that will be buried in the depths of the mind quickly afterward.
Mars in 4th House The presence of the fiery planet in the house of family can be a difficult one, as the 4th house is traditionally ruled by Cancer and the Moon. Natal Mars in the 4th house feels frustrated; this is a water house and his aggressive temperament can bring upheavals to the emotional emphasis that the Moon grants to all the fourth house matters. When a native has his natal Mars residing in the 4th house, the red planet is strongly connected with his roots, family and early childhood. This natal position can make the native be an offspring of a family that has military careers, a parent being a policeman or elsehow connected with uniforms and law enforcement. The native receives such archetypes that later in his life form a need for him to be the leader of his personal “clan”, which can be both his family and more distant relatives. The struggle for a leadership role in the kin might bring out difficulties, as other members may also have the same type of character. On the other hand, such families can become very strong socially, and it is not infrequent that they collectively take part in organized crime or other illegal activities. The native’s parents usually are very strict and authoritarian, while if Mars in the 4th house is adversely aspected, there can be a lot of tension in the family affairs. During his childhood, he was pressured and frequently suffered quarrels between the members of his family. His parents are overprotective, while at the same time controlling and easily angered. If the natal aspects to Mars are very adverse, the native can suffer physical abuse, especially if Pluto is somehow involved. If Mars has only good aspects, then the family will have tensions but their debates will lead to constructive decisions, even if with a lot of temperament involved. People with Mars in the 4th house also develop strong urges to protect their family. In case that one of its members is threatened, they will get outraged and release enormous amounts of fury towards the possible threat. A general advice to whoever has experienced a harsh Martian energy in his childhood is to try to smooth it by getting involved in athletic activities. It would be a pity if the same type of energy which harmed you while young, harm your own offspring too. Understand that this cycle should be closed or at least softened or else the pattern will continue towards the generations to come. One of the good things that this natal placement grants to the native, is a very active and healthy old age. Mars placed there gives a robust body that refuses to age, and the person will be working out to keep it in good shape for long. People who have Mars in the 4th house can have problems concerning real estate matters, while also can suffer injuries and have all types of accidents in their home surroundings. If you have this aspect, be very careful how you handle all objects ruled by Mars in your house. Take extreme care while using sharp knives during cooking and while operating machinery that cuts things such as electric saws. Strangely enough, this placement gives the possibility of experiencing a fire at home or elsehow being involved with setting fire to a building. On the positive side, the person will feel tremendous amounts of power rising inside him, mostly connected with his roots. He might be very proud of the family’s legacy and will use this pride for reaching his goals. He has very strong survival abilities and will be able to fight his way out from the biggest difficulties. In addition, the impulsive energy of Mars can give a quick creation of a family and makes the native rush into decisions of making children. In case you have this natal placement with hard aspects, seeing a psychologist might help you in handling the anger issues that your childhood years can bring. In case that you learn to channel the Martian energy towards positive activities, this aspect will grant you with an active life and your – so important for you – family legacy will continue and make you proud.
Mars in 3rd House Having the impulsive planet Mars in the third house has a strong impact on the native’s mind and ways of communication. Such people have very active minds that can even become aggressive. They like to argue and debate and receive pleasure in verbally defeating other people. When someone has Mars in the 3rd house, his speech can be offensive, and will frequently hurt people with what they say. Even their humor can be sarcastic and provocative, while they also tend to speak without thinking the consequences of what they say beforehand. Even when realizing that they are wrong, they do not confess it and prefer to defend their first opinion in every possible way. It does not take a lot of effort to make them nervous; Mars in the house of communications has a special button that can easily trigger a furious response. Mars in the 3rd house gives a lot of fighting with siblings, which is mainly frequent in their childhood. The quarreling nature of the red planet has such an effect on neighbors too; it will frequently bring tension in the native’s nearby surroundings and raise the tone of the voices. The curious fact is that the native often is the “bad” neighbor, not the other person! When Mars is adversely afflicted, then the chart owner will deliberately seek trouble, just for the sake of arguing. This is a rather unhealthy behavior, which creates an overall bad atmosphere for his everyday life and should definitely be kept under control. When Mars is left untamed in his bad traits, he can become really malicious, mirroring back to you the evil that you unleash. Their childhood years were probably rather difficult, and their school and neighborhood were not peaceful. As children, they have usually suffered bullying and also been victims of it. The area of their childhood residence is usually a violent and unsafe one, with raging criminality. The constant subconscious fear of their neighborhood creates their alertness towards external threats, as a way to survive and feel safer in this dangerous environment. The native with Mars in the 3rd house will frequently go to short journeys; their nature will be rather impulsive and forced though. They can have a violent hobby such as hunting or some martial art, connected with these nearby excursions. Mars in the 3rd house creates a hyper-energetic person, who feels rather restless and does not know how to release the abundance of mental energy. Their hasty way of thoughts can lead to a lot of quick wrong decisions, so such natives are advised to invest in developing more analytical thoughts. Learning how to wait before taking a decision or speaking will calm down the explosive energies of Mars and help the individual structure his reality in a better way; such an approach might even teach him how precious a peaceful atmosphere can be in their daily reality. This is the way of healing the traumas that keep the mind alert, reducing the subconscious stress that is dominating their everyday life. Of course, such type of a mind can be useful for a lot of professions. Every job that needs an aggressive speech will be successful. The only issue is that most of these jobs have a very flexible morality; the native would excel as a political agitator, in propaganda and spreading rumors, as a low-ranked military responsible for educating neophytes by oppressing them and breaking down their defenses and character into pieces. Every job that is based on verbal violence and arguments can go well, but we firmly advise all natives with this placement not to indulge in unleashing uncontrolled Martian powers onto others. When Mars is allowed to function at will, he can create a fanatic, a sadist and someone who enjoys getting into situations of ecstatic frenzy. The third house rules everything that is crafted by hands, and the presence of Mars can create a great blacksmith, weapon creator, knife handler or surgeon. Especially when Mars is only positively aspected by other planets, the person is advised to enter into such kind of Martian professions that involve metal and sharp objects, as his mastery can reach unique levels and he can offer a great service to humanity. A last piece of advice for all our friends who have Mars in their 3rd house! Do not drive fast. Especially if you drive a motorcycle. We all know that the third house rules transportation, so when Mars is present in the house and adversely aspected, there are extreme dangers of accidents. Be even more careful if Mars is afflicted by Uranus, or Uranus is also present in the house. The safety of your body should be your first priorities and you really do not need to be chickeny and show off yourself with your new motorcycle. Be patient; increasing your speed while driving will probably shorten your trip by ten minutes, but why risking to arrive in pieces or not to arrive at all?
Mars in 2nd House When Mars, the red planet, is located in the second house of a natal chart, its impact mostly affects the life areas that are connected to money and possessions. Mars might be considered a malefic, and indeed functions like that when weak by placement in a sign or adversely aspected; yet if it is strong by position and well-aspected can bring a lot of wealth to the native- through hard work and a lot of effort of course. Such people are usually overly materialistic, measuring their own success and self-confidence by their belongings. Mars is one of the most impulsive planets and gets irritated when pressured. The individuals that have their Mars placed in the second house prefer to have their own business and actively create their money, as they do not like to work for someone else who will keep the biggest part of the gains for themselves. They are hard workers; their profession is a battlefield where they want to be victorious by any means. Financial gain is for them the loots gained through this battle, and spending them is their celebration dance after the victory. As in any war, the spoils gained are not to be shared with others even if they fought together; problems can appear between them and co-workers in sharing the gains. The native’s money is spent rather quickly; Mars in the 2nd house creates a person that usually buys things hastily. For a man with Mars in the 2nd house, possessions are closely connected with his masculinity. The more he has some, the manlier he feels. In a woman horoscope, this aspect is mostly connected with feelings of security rather than proof of being strong and raising self-confidence. A woman with such an aspect might be a lot more interested in possessing other people, especially people that are big spenders, athletic or have some type of power over the masses. They are attracted towards military men, and if Mars in the 2nd house forms an aspect with a vital planet in the seventh house a marriage with a military person is probable. The same applies if Aries is on the cusp of the 7th house, or Mars aspects the ruling planet of the 7th house. The material goods acquired by the person who has such a placement are a fetish that they do not like sharing with other people. They do not like lending their personal stuff, are possessive and adore admiring their belongings. Sometimes, they do not use their belongings themselves in order not to damage them or not to make them wear up. For them, what they own is a symbolical collection of moments, each material thing has also the value of the time and effort spent so that they manage to acquire it. Their impatience makes them want to gain the objects they desire quickly, so their morality can become rather flexible if the right opportunity occurs. Another category of objects that a second house Mars adores are weapons. These can also become objects of fetish, either through just being decorations for his walls or by using them as a hobby. A person with Mars in the 2nd house might invest his money in real weapons, replicas, or even collections of war memorabilia. The native should always be careful with the local laws; having a real weapon in his house without the necessary paperwork might not end up well. If Mars is heavily aspected by Neptune, Mercury or Pluto, there are possibilities of using non-honest ways of acquiring things. This could be by stealing, swindling or even violence, depending on the aspects and the conditions of the other planets involved in this placement. The individual might spend a lot of money on sports, either by watching them or gambling on them. The latter will definitely appear if his Mars aspects some planet located in his 5th house or is otherwise somehow connected with the house. If Mars is adversely aspected by other planets, it can also indicate loss of wealth during difficult transits. This can happen through unexpected expenses, robbery, or debt payback if there exists an opposition with some planets located in the 8th house. The individuals that have such an opposition, should keep away from receiving loans because payback will be utterly difficult and will bring a lot of problems. The best way to soften Mars in the 2nd house is to engage in athletic activities. Also, trying to share your possessions and offer with other people will blunt any difficult aspects that your natal chart might have. When you allow the cumulated Martian energy to explode in controlled ways, there is less risk to harm others, and your Mars will function better, bringing you more gains. Keeping an egoistic attitude will just feed this explosive time-bomb you carry; the result will be a major uncontrolled explosion in some random moment. Try to disconnect your feelings of security from your material possessions, simulate for yourself a different environment in order to learn how to act in different situations rather than using the ones that you try to force upon your reality, and it is guaranteed that you will live a lot happier and will appreciate what you gain, even if you do not change your attitude towards your possessions, as this reaction was probably created in your early childhood where material things and their ownership were quite misbalanced in your perception.
Mars in 1st House Mars is the traditional ruling planet of the first house, because the house is associated with the first sign of the zodiac, Aries. Representing life-force, activity and the struggle to survive and conquer, Mars is creating a highly energetic and dynamic personality when located in the house of self. This is a great position for the red planet to reside in, even if the abundance of energy can lead to aggressive behaviors and other trouble caused by rash. The native with Mars in the 1st house yearns for independence and is quite straightforward. Life is always a battle, and for planet Mars, there is no other outcome than victory. Individuals with such an aspect are spontaneous, which can lead to difficulties due to inconsideration of all the parameters of situations that appear. It is a common phenomenon for such natives to get into fights due to their explosive temperament; yet, they usually are the ones to win because Mars tends to give an athletic and strong body. It is also very common that the native is into martial arts or other sports activities that furthermore empower his carnal self. The best advice for handling this powerful planet well is to tame these eruptive energies and channel them into healthy activities to get the best out of Mars’s force. The first house rules the head and the face, so there is a possibility of having cuts or burns on it that might leave a scar. It is many times easy to distinguish a person that has Mars in the first, from marks on his face. Such types of people are also prominent to high fevers when they are sick, especially if Mars has some adverse aspects to other planets with an effect on the body such as the Sun. Also, a first house Mars person must guard against accidents, especially those that can happen because of his impulsiveness and enormous self-confidence. Daring without taking precautions and considering the risks might usually end up in lucky results, but it is the one time when luck will not work that is enough for a catastrophic situation to happen. Be careful when using machinery, weapons, knives, tools, and everything that is somehow connected to Mars and Aries. Boredom is maybe the worse feeling that a person with Mars in the 1st house can experience; if the surroundings are not interesting enough to fill them with enthusiasm, such a native will end up a boiling casserole- and the best thing, of course, is to change surroundings. Feelings of frustration will frequently appear when they do not have something to do; Mars needs to keep himself occupied with something and laziness is not an option. Even when they are procrastinating with their obligations, they don’t just spend some lazy time but rather invest their time in other activities they indeed find interesting. For sure, they can accomplish in one day a lot more than the rest of the people. Nevertheless, they must consciously choose to not become overly dominating towards other people, if they wish to be in harmony with the rest of the world. This is because most other individuals have a slower pace, and it should definitely be respected; the world cannot just adapt to their hasty approach of reality. Even if Mars in the 1st house might make the native prone to surgeries, their recuperative powers are very strong and they heal very quickly. They have a higher chance of fracturing their bones and other injuries than any other placement could give; a reason for this happening is also that they are physically more active than anyone. A couch potato has definitely fewer possibilities to suffer an accident than a person who is involved in extreme sports. Usually, their athletic abilities and strong body last long years, granting them an active old age. Mars in the 1st house gives a pioneer; there is a strong urge to discover life and people who have this natal position ignore the wisdom and advice of elder people. If Mars is aspected with square, opposition or sometimes conjunction by Pluto, Saturn and Uranus, the native will develop self-destructive behaviors, many times because they even feel that even their own self is a jail for their freedom. Women with Mars positioned there can have quite a lot of male characteristics and succeed in traditionally masculine jobs. If their Mars is afflicting Venus or/and Uranus, their masculine traits might also affect their sexuality, either by preferring women or by being the dominant person in their relationships with men. Similar sexual preferences can occur with men having Mars afflicted in the first house, but no matter which gender they prefer, they like to keep the power of dominance for themselves. Overall, Mars situated in the house of the self is quite a positive natal placement. In case that the planet is only positively aspected, there is absolutely nothing to worry about; other natives would envy you for this gift as you will be able to accomplish a lot more things both in your everyday reality and in your life as a whole. The only enemy you have with Mars in the 1st house is your own self and your heightened self-confidence that might lead you acting without thinking. Taming your Mars is not the easiest thing, as the planet actually does not allow to be tamed. Nevertheless, channeling its energy can easily make it co-operate with you, and physical activity (with all precautions of safety) is the best option. A last hint that might change the functionality of the planet in your chart: do not try to be the Alpha male, even if this would naturally happen in case of personality combats. You might easily end up being an Alpha male, but there would not be any other males left in the pack. And then, starts boredom, which is a worse enemy for a first house Mars than sharing power with others.
