Mars is our will. Emanating from our third chakra, coursing through our muscles, communicating via all the iron in our blood, it gives us strength to get what we want in the world. It also assists us in defending and protecting what is needed in our lives.
Traditionally considered a malefic, the sculpted warrior within can be much more when handled properly. To get there, we must deal directly with our desires, our frustrations, anger, and our disappointments. When we do this wisely, we are golden.
In the horoscope, Mars shows us how we run our energies. When positioned favorably, nothing can stop it; When afflicted, we have much work to do. Either way, there is work to do. Every two years throughout our lives, we come home to our natal Mars. Terrible two’s aren’t forever.
