Mars Sign

Every planet in the cosmic realm governs a particular aspect of our personality, or life in general. Your Sun sign reflects how you present yourself to the world and what makes you feel powerful. Your Moon sign gives insight into your inner persona, what’s your emotional makeup. Your Mercury Sign tells how you ponder, process, express and share information. Mars, like all these controls specific aspects of your life. The sign that Mars is transiting through at the time of your birth is called the Mars Sign.

Mars is a red-hot masculine planet. It is raw energy unlike Sun. Its placement in a sign tells how you physically respond to things, whether it’s sports or sex. Do you love aggressive physically demanding sports or fun team sports? Are you short-tempered or slow burn? What’s your approach to sex, sensual or sexual? Knowing Mars Sign is another effective astrological method to know more about yourself or someone else.

If Sun is confidence, Mars is courage. If Venus is romance, Mars is sex. Mars makes you competitive, strong, adventurous, risk-taking, energetic, ambitious, sexual, impulsive, assertive and aggressive. Your Mars sign gives a picture of your basic desires, animal instincts. Mars is the planet of action. The way you approach your goals comes under the realm of Mars. Your will to take risks and combat challenges also belongs to Mars.

Mars is your immediate response or action in a given situation. For example, someone with Mars in Aries is likely to react in an impulsive way without thinking much but that won’t be the case for someone with Mars in Taurus or Mars in Libra. Whether your approach would be passive or aggressive can be determined through your Mars Sign. Someone with Mars in Leo or Mars in Aries would likely react impulsively and aggressively like fire; however, someone with Mars is Scorpio would certainly respond in a calculated way.

Mars also governs your preferences of sports. Someone with Mars in Sagittarius would likely be fond of adventurous sports like parasailing or scuba diving while someone with Mars in Aries would probably prefer physically demanding activities like gymnastics or football. Mars in Scorpio on the other hand would prefer solitary sports that require sync of body, mind and soul. With Mars in Scorpio, you would likely go for activities that require self-control and concentration of energy such as power yoga, rock climbing, martial arts, diving etc. Someone with Mars in Gemini would look for team sports that involve music, rhythm or communication such as aerobics, skating, or tennis.

Mars’ most sought-after area of governance is sex. If you want to know of someone’s libido and sexual interests, look for their Mars sign. It governs your level of desire. Your Mars sign reflects what turns you in the bedroom department. If your partner has unbridled sexual energy and seeks immediate gratification, he or she could be Mars in Aries. Does sensual stimulation turns your partner on, might be a Mars in Taurus? Do they prefer the darker side of sex, could be Mars in Scorpio? Someone who likes dirty talking and experiments could have Mars in Gemini. If you approach sex with passionate intensity, you could be Mars in Cancer. If you remain cool and detached, you probably have Mars in Aquarius.

Your Mars Sign also depicts trouble, how you get angry, create arguments and even get violent. A positive Mars Sign indicates ambitious approach towards goals while if bridled, Martian energy boils under wraps and finally explodes in the form of anger, irritability, frustration, harshness and temper tantrums. Mars is essentially the drive that works behind the scenes of all actions we take. It can make you do anything, from surviving days in the mountains like Bear Grylls to getting off on the early morning gym routine. In fact, when your Mars wants something, it wants it badly and spares no effort to get it, simple, end of story.
