People seemed to have had a lot of fun with my last article—Moons I could Marry—so I thought I would expand on the concept.I like to foster discussion. I know quite a bit but I do not know all of the people you LIVE with the all their different Mars signs.
First of all, I think with Mars, the house placement makes a big difference. I say this because I am close to someone with a Libra Mars in the Eight House(Scorpio’s house). I would say he is 50% of the way to a Scorpio Mars but he is missing that Mars in Scorpio “edge”, if you know what I mean.
The Libra Mars is a bad Mars for a dude.It is bad for anyone but worse for a guy. It is Mars in its Detriment. Any planet in the Detriment or Fall is kind of a mutant, like the girl at the party who has on tennis shoes while everyone else has the shoes that Melania Trump wears.(Don’t get me started on how gross those toes must look) It is like a bike or a car that squeaks. It is no fault of the native. Most people have one or more planets in the Fall or Detriment. I have Mars.
Back to the subject of Mars in the houses, the house does seem to strongly affect the Zodiac sign.However, I am not married to the Mars in the 8th House person, so I cannot say for sure. I think you have to live with someone to really know them.
With the caveat about house signs, I will go on to each Mars sign in the Zodiac and ponder the good and the bad.
Mars in Aries
I don’t like this Mars signs because it is squared to my Cancer Mars. I think one can say that a squared sign to any personal planet does not work well. With a squared Mars, there can be initial attraction but it is that kind of “violent” attraction, if you will, one that is kind of love/hate mixed.However, after the attraction wanes, you will likely repel and disgust each other.
Mars in Aries is too strong of a Mars sign for me, strong in the manner of being too overtly aggressive. I think of this Mars as driving a fast, red Corvette.
Mars in Taurus
Mars in Taurus is too dull for me. I know people will get up in arms about this. Taurus is kind of like “Uncle Clem”. You can rely on him. He has wise home spun homilies. If you need help with a crzy romance, he will calm you down but if you want a night out on the town, you would not take him. I love Taurus in the Moon, but not Mars.
On the plus side, Taurus Mars can stick to a goal. He can be a very dependable employee. He can be a responsible husband and father. If you Mars is trine him, he may be very good for you. It is really all about the charts.
Mars in Gemini
This guy is too flaky for me. I have seen many sexy ones such as Jonathan Rhys Meyers( Henry the 8th on Netflix) Jonathan in one of the best flirts I have ever seen. I think he has Mars conjunct Venus in Gemini which amps his charisma up a thousand levels.
Many Mars in Gemini people have charisma. However, staying power is another story.I am talking about a real job——-day in and day out and day in and day out. I am talking being a dad day—- in and day out. I am talking about being married to the same woman —-day in and day out. You get the point. He gets bored very easily. I, personally, like a guy who can be a bit less fun but will be there to change a diaper and I don’t mean mine.
Mars in Cancer
This is my Mars but I sure don’t want it in a guy. Shoosh–it makes for a wimp. It is OK if you are a wimp, if you are a girl, but it does not look good on a guy. This would be a picture of Mars in Cancer–Obama riding a girl’s bike with a helmet. On the plus side, they can be very family oriented. They can stand up for those they love. They tend to be loyal. They are good workers.
Mars in Cancer can be very fearful. They can be timid about expressing uncomfortable emotions like anger and assertion.
It is funny how many sexy actors who play really macho roles have this Mars. Sam Neil, he was in the first Jurassic Park. He was Cardinal Wolsey in The Tudors, which was not a sexy role. I can’t remember his roles in which he was sexy but I know he has them.
The black detective in “Bosch”–a Netflix series— is a Mars in Cancer. No, he was the police chief. I can’t remember his name but he was sexy.
I cry a lot. I am a Moon and Mars in Cancer. I cry when I listen to music or relate stories about people I love or have loved. I really don’t want my guy to be crying when I am. I want him to say,”Baby, what can I do for you?”
Mars in Leo
This guy is interesting. I always think of the saying “I would not want to date a guy who is prettier than I am”. Mars in Leo could be. He could truly look more put together if you saw us together on any given day.
He likes very feminine women, women who wear dresses and heels with full make up and every hair in place, what we used to call helmet head.He, himself, looks like he stepped out of a magazine and not “Fish and Game”. If this guy does not know how to iron his own clothes, he would be a ton of work.Something to consider.
I am sure some women love this Mars sign. He is fun. He is creative.He is generous. He may get you great presents that are well thought out. He may surprise you with trips. He knows how to play like a child. This is a nice thing for the right person.
Mars in Virgo
Oh boy. I have heard these guys are good lovers but I don’t know. Their good trait here may be good attention to detail and trying to do a good job. I am not perfect enough for any of them to like me. My house is too messy. I look too casual, if you want to be nice about it. I have a sense of humor that Virgos seem to hate. It is too —I don’t know how to say it—gross.Mars in Virgo is likely a good worker. He is likely very clean and organized. Also, he is supposed to be a good nurse when you get sick
Mars in Libra
I talked about him a little above. His main flaw is that he can’t make decisions easily. He does not have the best boundaries when others want things from him that he does not want to give. Trying to please people as well as take care of himself is hard for him.
One thing I like about this Mars is that seem not to mind doing “women’s work”. In other words, at a party, he will help you clean up. He compromises well, maybe too well as I said above.
Fairness is very important to him. He would make a good lawyer. He usually is interested in the law.
Mars in Scorpio
This guy is delicious and there are not too many of them. Maybe, there are never enough for me “wink” However, to be totally honest, they are too much for me. I came to this conclusion from looking at my life. I am attracted to Aquarius Mars the most. I think I am intimidated by the Mars in Scorpio, to tell you the truth. They are too sexual. They see through you too much. You can’t hide anything from them. This scares me.
Honestly, I am more cerebral than sexual. I think a Mars in Scorpio would not be happy with me. When Mars in Scorpio is not happy sexually, he moves on. I would hate infidelity, so I guess I will drool over them from afar.
To talk about them more in detail, they are strong people. They go after goals in an assertive way and usually don’t feel guilty for their conquests. If they want it, they will go after it. It is very flattering to be a female on the end of this stick. You feel like the most beautiful and desirable girl in the world.
Also, they have a way of seeing right through you and communicating to you that you are “ok”. We all feel there is something wrong with us, something of which we are ashamed,unless I am the only one. The Mars in Scorpio seems to affirm you at a very deep level—they SEE you and STILL love you. This is almost as powerful as God. A joke
I can’t see a Mars in Scorpio staying in a relationship in which he is very unhappy. Also, I did not add this. Sex to them is more than physical. They want a soul and body connection. As gorgeous as you are, he will tire of you if he can’t connect with you heart to heart. Mars in Scorpio expects too much
for someone with my chart( i.e a strong Gemini in the 9th house). However,for the right girl, they give a whole lot and those sexy vibes are unique to them.
Just to add a caveat. When a man has both Mars and Venus in Scorpio, a lot of the charisma is gone. I think the Venus in Scorpio makes them take love too seriously, so they are not the “players” that the Mars in Scorpio are. Most chicks like a bad boy and Mars in Scorpio fits that hidden(in most cases) desire.
Mars in Sagittarius
This is under the “weak and not dependable” guy category. I am just being real here. A mutable Mars does not have that much staying power. They may not have enough internal strength to fight for you, but I would need to see the rest of the chart to make such a claim. In general, the mutable people leave when things get heavy. They are kind of superficial in that way. You really, really have to see a Moon to understand a person more so than a Mars sign. However, that being said, I need too much of a dependable Steady Eddie guy to end up with a Mars in Sagittarius. I don’t think I would even be attracted to him. I like men with a lot of substance. Unless, he has an otherwise killer chart, it would not be Mars in Saggi.
Also, Saggi loves to travel. Saggi is quincunx to my Cancer Moon and Mars.Cancer hates to travel. They are the proverbial “stay at home” person, so it would be a race to see who gets to divorce court first.
On the plus side, they have a lot of optimism. They are not very stubborn i.e easy to have as a room mate. They love to travel. They hate routine. These are important for the right girl.
Mars in Capricorn
I have a love/hate relationship with this Mars. I respect it. Who wouldn’t?They must respect you to love you. Respect is more important to this sign than any other. So, you need to have integrity for this sign to stay with you.
Mars in Cappy can go from the mail room to the CEO office by sheer grit. They are very grounded and see life as it is. This sign is the most likely to see stark reality and be able to wake up the next day. Many of us live in our own version of fantasy land. How much you live there is how crazy you are. I hate to break it down so simply after studying Psych for six years.
The down side of Mars in Capricorn is the cool head that could make him leave you if you run into trouble i.e go broke. He is the most Macheveillian of any Mars sign. Money is very important to this sign. It is the sign most likely to marry for money and prestige.I am not saying Duchess Kate married Prince William for money and prestige but she does have a Cappy Mars. Everyone watches out for practical things like money but this sign would marry you FOR money.
Mars in Aquarius
This is my favorite Mars in a guy. I like Venus in Aquarius, too. I cannot stand Sun or Ascendant in Aquarius. This is interesting and shows that a Zodiac sign is very different with different planets.
Mars in Aquarius is an independent sort. If you are high in air like I am, you may like a guy who does not cling too much. This Mars can set a goal and stick to it. He is open minded about different ways of thinking and accepting of people who are different than he is.
He seems to like intellectual things like reading. The Mars in Aquarius that I was with was a bookworm like I am. We would spend weekends sitting next to each other reading. He was a Venus in Aquarius, too.
So, I had a trine Venus with him. Venus shows that which you like and enjoy. Mars shows how you go after what we want.
Mars in Pisces
This is a dud Mars. I know you will get angry but if were one Mars sign that would be a pot head it would be this one. Don’t put off today what you could do tomorrow or better still, as Bart Simpson says, “It it is hard, just quit”.
I am sure there are Mars in Pisces who have good ambition and can stick to the job. I don’t know many. i doubt I would be attracted to any. I am kind of a “get up and go” person. I have always had a lot of drive and ambition for anything I do.
On the plus side, I bet that they are romantic.
