In astrology, Mars represents our drive and how we pursue our desires. It is also our reflexes and how we protect ourselves, our boundaries. Let's look at Mars' placement in each Zodiac Sign and what each position indicates
Mars in Aries (Astrology): Mars is very happy in Aries, almost too happy. This is a person who is full of passion and lust, and they go after what they want in a very driven and aggressive manner, almost too aggressive. If not careful, this person can come across as insensitive, immature and self-absorbed.
Mars in Taurus (Astrology): You are slow and steady. You do not make any hasty actions or decisions. If not careful, you can be too immobile and lazy.
Mars in Gemini (Astrology): You are scattered all over the place. Your first reaction to everything is to analyze, to research and to communicate. Make sure you finish what you start. Intellectually, you can be a bully.
Mars in Cancer (Astrology): You are very cautious and brooding. You also have manipulative tendencies. Your lesson: taking small, realistic, direct and grounded actions.
Mars in Leo (Astrology): You like to have fun and can't tolerate boredom. You can be obsessively romantic and extremely creative. Not everything you do, however, needs to be theatrical and flashy.
Mars in Virgo (Astrology): You have fantastic analytical abilities. You are very careful in how you pursue your desires, sometimes stagnating for a long time. Your lesson: how to let go and create a flow.
Mars in Libra (Astrology): You do not even know what you want, so how can you even begin to go after it? Your actions lack confidence. On a brighter side, when you do finally take action, it's usually well-planned.
Mars in Scorpio (Astrology): Your emotions are deep, intense and out of control. All your actions are colored by how you feel. You need to learn how to gain an objective perspective on your motivations and desires.
Mars in Sagittarius (Astrology): You move on faith. You believe there's always a way out of trouble. If you are not careful, however, all your actions can be unrealistic and inconsistent.
Mars in Capricorn (Astrology): You are reliable and not afraid of hard work. Your integrity is usually intact. You just need to anchor your desires in a little bit of emotion, so you do not seem robotic.
Mars in Aquarius (Astrology): You are not concerned with details, which you consider petty. You like to do things with at least one other person. You need to learn how to function solo.
Mars in Pisces (Astrology): You are “guided” by “unseen forces.” You wait for some type of sign “from above” before making a move. Your lesson: to gain a clear view and understanding of your desires, and to plan your actions attentively.
