Mars in Aries

Is it just me or is it getting hot in here?

Mars rules Aries, so is at his strongest, most physical, most vital, most impulsive, most headstrong, most independent and most selfish here.

Mars is a hot and masculine planet and Aries a hot, cardinal, and masculine sign, making this arguably the most masculine and direct of energy forces. It burns hot indeed. Sure, this can mean bulging biceps and all of that rather obvious, clichédshow of masculinity, but it isn’t just about the physical. It’s about how the energy is directed – and in Aries, energy is activated in clear lines outwardly.

If you think about the Aries men in your life I’m sure there would be a number of them who don’t at all fit the clichéd image of Aries – not physically anyway… but, man, their energy is pure irrepressible Aries – and that’s what we’re talking about here. Energy.

Anyways, if you want to know more, I’ve written (a lot) more about Mars in Aries here. It’s an old post – written back in 2011 – so forgive the writing. Also don’t forget, what I describe is the energy in its purest form – the impact of other planets will affect that. As an example, my daughter has the Sun, Mars, Mercury and Saturn in Aries. While she is serious Aries energy, the influence of Saturn gives that energy a slower, more measured burn – and a slightly delayed start. Just saying.

Doing it for yourself…

We all have Aries somewhere in our chart, and it’s this part of life that’s about to get an energy hit from Mars. I joke with one Aries guy I know, that it’s like he’s a kid on red cordial having a permanent sugar rush. Totally exhausting, yet at the same time, inspiring. It’s that energy that you want to harness in whatever part of life it is that Mars is moving through for you.

Pull your chart out and look for the symbol of Aries. There it is in the pic above.

If you don’t have your chart, read this post on how to get one.

If you don’t have any idea about your birth time, or can’t be faffed working it out, you can follow the solar guide below.

For me, it’s the 2nd house and I’m hitting the ground running with some clear goals to push my writing and astro businesses out of loss-making ventures in 2019 into something that will provide me with a return for my labour and pay for the running of the websites etc. I’ve set targets and this month with be taking direct action against those targets.
