Is there life on Mars? Astrologically speaking, it is a very lively place indeed—a fiery planet whose vibrations are teeming with vigour and vitality. Mars is basic, raw, passionate, and outgoing energy. It is ready to take on life, and take on the world, if necessary.
Wherever Mars is placed in the chart that is where a great deal of energy will be present. This can be a source of dynamism or tension, depending on the details of its placement.
When it is expressed positively in the chart, Mars can be decisive and courageous. Whatever the circumstances, Mars will always want to emphasize action. It is full of energy and initiative. Mars is the pioneer, the leader (especially in a crisis), and the defender of the weak. This planet is a freedom-loving doer, not one to sit on the sidelines. Its natural preference is to be quick and prompt, direct, and to the point. It has a healthy, vigorous sex drive, and a strong, urgent sense of self-assertion in terms of its drives and needs.
When Mars is not well placed in the chart, its natural attributes become distorted in a negative direction. They now turn up as aggressivity, rather than simple assertiveness; brutality, rather than forcefulness; foolhardiness, rather than courage; rashness, rather than promptness: rudeness rather than forthrightness, and anger rather than firmness.
