Mars takes 1 years to travel the zodiac, spending on average 44 days in each sign. Mars is the fiery Red Planet, ruling your sexuality and sexual energy, the sign in which Mars falls in your Natal Chart is known as your Passion Sign. Mars often turns Retrograde, playing havoc with your love life!

In mythology, Mars was the Roman god of war and agriculture (the Greek god Ares). The myth of the love between Mars and Venus was based on Homer's account of the intrigue between Ares and Aphrodite. Mars was the father of the twins Romulus and Remus. His affair with Venus bore several children including Eros, the personification of love. The Tarot card associated with Mars is The Tower.

Mars Glyph The traditional astrological symbol for Mars is the cross of matter sitting on the circle of spirit, but nowadays many astrologers use the more modern symbol of a diagonal arrow sitting atop the circle of matter. The symbol suggests that Mars has the power to create matter from abstract spirit or to debase pure energy, reducing it to its grossest state Mars

In a Birth Chart, Mars influences your physical energy, competitiveness, assertiveness and sexual drive, and indicates what you seek sexually from partners.

The Sign Mars occupied at the time of your birth shows how you set out to get what you want; your fight or flight instinct; your conscious and unconscious motives; your sex drive; your competitive spirit; how you let off steam.

The House Mars occupied at the time of your birth shows in what area of life you seek to assert yourself; where you concentrate or scatter your energies; where you are most independent or territorial; what makes you angry.
