You must have noticed that there are things or areas of life which get you excited and stimulate your enthusiasm or energy. These are the areas where you want to act & react, and get involved actively than passively. You want to pursue this energy and it can be anything, related to work, friends, hobbies, or love life. It is the Mars’ position in a house that represents that area where your energy will be directed, where your actions could bring success.
Mars is what forces you to act; it is the drive in force behind your ambition in life. And its position in a house defines the area where your capability to act is expressed in the best way possible. There are 12 houses in astrology, so there are twelve possible areas where Mars’ energy could be focused. It must be noted that the influence of Mars in 12 houses also depends upon other aspects of the horoscope.
Each horoscope is a unique amalgamation of planets aspecting, exchanging, conjunct or placed together with each other in different signs and houses. So naturally Mars in each horoscope would be under influence of others planets and the sign it occupies too. In that case, the interpretation would be a mixed result of all these influences instead of just Mars house placement.
