Mars was the Roman God of war, depicted as a beautiful and powerful young man, half nude, wearing a helmet and carrying a spear – emblems of his warrior nature.
In Astrology, the position of Mars in your natal chart indicates how you use physical energy, sexuality and personal strengths. For women, Mars also indicates the lover, the kind of man she’s attracted to, in a physical manner. For example, Mars in Capricorn indicates an older and skinny partner, while Mars in Leo tells that you are attracted by pride and childish men.
Each planet from our birth chart is like an actor, performing a leading role (indicated by the astrological sign) on a stage (indicated by the astrological house). Look what role, on what stage, plays Mars in your natal chart:
Mars in the signs
Mars in Aries – a Vanguard Warrior
Aries is the day domicile of Mars and, if you have the red planet in this astrological sign, you are impulsive and spontaneous. You prefer quick action, not careful planning. For you, one of the most annoying things in the world is to elaborate an action plan. You don’t get the point – if you want to do something, just do it, don’t waste your time talking about strategies!
Your physical energy is great, but you lose quickly your enthusiasm, when nothing new happens. You become impatient and even rude when people around you slow down. Avoid working with such fellows!
With Mars in Aries, you are a good lover, but not necessarily a good husband or wife. You enjoy challenges and you like starting fresh, new relations, instead of developing a marriage.
A woman with Mars in Aries prefers an active man, who, probably, practices sport, yoga or martial art. He is good looking, with a nice body and aware of those qualities. This kind of man enjoys compliments even more than some women, so remember to express your admiration for his body and, also, for his actions!
Angelina Jolie, Tyra Banks, Kate Beckinsale, Kate Hudson, Daniel Craig, Russell Crowe, Cristiano Ronaldo, Steve Jobs, Stephen Hawking, Marquis de Sade and the former French president Nicolas Sarkozy are some well-known celebrities with Mars in Aries.
Mars in Taurus – Slow and Steady Wins the Race
Stability is the highest quality of Mars in Taurus: financial stability, secure jobs and long-term relationships. With the red planet in this astral sign, you don’t like to start over and over again and you are not appreciated for your speed or for your adaptation skills.
But Mars in Taurus is aware that „slow and steady wins the race“. Those people work slow, but constantly, and have well-defined long-term goals. Valuing strength and stability, they work hard for what they want and, almost every time, succeed in their projects.
They don’t make quick money, but their long-term investments are very profitable. At the age of 40, they will certainly have a bank deposit with many zeros and some valuable properties. They usually prefer real estates or agriculture, but they are capable of making money from almost any business, if they have the time.

You have also a passion for words, so you can be an excellent interpreter (listen in one language and talk in another) or a receptionist who acts simultaneously as secretary and telephone operator.
