Mars: Planet of Action

By Taylor Kohl

Mars is the Planet of aggression; passion; sexual urges; and action. This planet is associated with what we would traditionally refer to as "masculinity", which is why the symbol for Mars is also the symbol for Male. However, truth be told, everyone can relate to the energy of this Planet, regardless of gender; sex; sexual orientation; or sexual/gender identity. The placement and condition of Mars in your birth chart will explain how you express anger; how you go about taking action; how athletic you are; and will provide information about your sexuality. Collectively, we are forgetting how to use the energy of this planet in a healthy manner, because we are becoming less physically active. It is essential that we find constructive outlets for Mars. Otherwise, we are prone to outbursts, rather than a healthy and regular release of aggression.
