Planet Mars

The heated warrior

Mars

Like its namesake Roman god, Mars is a warrior -- the planet that shapes how you defend yourself, how you handle difficult situations, how you make important choices and how you push yourself further in life. In a way, Mars is your personal ally, but it definitely has its shadowy side: it's the planet that encourages you to take action, but with only your interests in mind.

Ever feel competitive or combative? That’s Mars saying you’re entitled to something you’re not getting. Ever had to stand up for yourself and speak your mind? Felt a strange rush of bravery that helped you cope? That fire in your belly? Also courtesy of Mars!

Whatever sign your Mars is in, that’s what inspires action. For example, if your Mars is in the sensitive sign of family-focused Cancer, you’ll be most assertive and volatile when someone you love is hurt or threatened. If your Mars is in the career-minded sign of Capricorn, everyone at work will step out of your way on the corporate ladder. Mars also dictates your "causes," and the things that excite you most. For example, if your Mars is in the humanitarian sign of Aquarius, community projects or efforts to reduce poverty or social injustices may spark your passion.
