Usual Effects of Mars in 1st House

Mars in 1st house (Ascendant or Lagna) creates high energy and a natural aggression in your temperament, whether it is apparent or latent. Since the 1st house is your foundation, covers your general wellbeing and how well known and successful you would be in life, Mars in 1st house shapes your personality in a way that your destiny is created by means of dynamism, hard work, aggression and overt actions in life.

A first house Mars puts you in the position of a leader, whether you wish for leadership or not. Being responsible and leading situations is something you will have to deal with most of your life. When Mars is positive, this leadership comes naturally with a zeal to lead and an ability to lead from the front while a neutral or negative Mars suggests that the leadership comes under covert circumstances or when leadership is thrust upon you.

This position of Mars also shows that the family and life circumstances are influenced by very active and aggressive circumstances at the time of your birth. The drive and energy come with your imbibing the influences around you into your own personality.

This position of Mars has an impact on your physical appearance creating a ruddy and flushed face with the tendency of facial eruptions (minor or major depending on the exact strength of your Mars) occasionally. It would make your eyes piercing and distinctive with well-developed eyebrows.

Your nature is aggressive due to the 1st house Mars position and each situation might be handled more impulsively or aggressively than usual. The level of flexibility would therefore be lower and the tendency to rebel opposing ideas could come more often than not to you. This position does make you pro-active, hardworking, action oriented, and competitive.

Physically, Mars in 1st house blesses you with a strong composition, high stamina, excellent endurance, an inclination towards fitness, and a love for the outdoors or nature.

Mars in first house causes some drawbacks also such as over-aggression, inflexibility, over competitiveness, difficulty in adjusting with circumstances and not willing to accept another person’s point of view when the polarity of Mars is negative. With an abundance in energy, the energy if not well utilized, gets drawn into creating issues, hurdles and problems for others.
