Red is a Mars color!!

Mars

In Roman mythology, Mars was the God of War, ranked second only to Jupiter, the King of the Gods. To follow the symbolism, once you have enough individual power to assert yourself and affect your surroundings, and enough abundance to feed and support yourself, and the assurance that you deserve to be here, you can turn your attention to other matters.

Mars was the Roman God of War. (Duh!) But also, strangely enough, agriculture. So, on the second tier of the needs hierarchy, this suggests the ability to cause trouble, push people around and ... ok, defend yourself makes an entrance. But then, you might decide to plant a little garden instead, and confine your aggression to fighting worms and weevils. That should make Mars happy.

Mars

Mars is Astrology's symbol for the action principle, the way you use physical energy and assert yourself in the world. The cliché "Actions speak louder than words" underscores the value and power of Mars and the way you use this indispensable gift to pursue your desires, defend yourself, express anger and otherwise show what's important to you.

Desires without action behind them are impotent fantasies -- and so are words, thoughts and ideas if there's nothing behind them, nothing in your character, willing to back them up -- and do what it takes to promote them. Yes, what you say and what you value says a lot about your character ... but what you do makes a difference, and for that, it can be all the more impressive and meaningful.

* Mars / Aries Person -- Aries Signatures in a Horoscope ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color. ---> Combinations of Mars / Aries energy ---> Mars / Aries energy can be seen in a number of different patterns or placements in a person's Natal Chart. All the following combinations give the Mars / Aries energy of spunky independence and self-assertive ambition to anyone who owns them, but some are not obvious to the non-astrologer.

Basic Stuff About Mars ---> About Mars ---> * After Venus, Mars is the next closest planet to Earth. It is located between Earth and Jupiter. It is the fourth planet from the Sun. ---> * Mars takes about 2 years to complete its circle through the Zodiac. It stays in each sign about 6 weeks, but it retrogrades once every two years. That retrograde cycle can keep it in a single sign for up to six months -- or, of course, it can divide its retrograde path between two different signs.

Mars

Venus is our nearest cosmic neighbor. She sits between us and the Sun. Mars is the neighbor on the other side -- the "4th Rock from the Sun." Physically, it is about half the size of Earth. It is also the last of the terrestrial or "rocky" planets -- made of planets mostly metal and rocks providing solid substance and structure for their existence.

Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are this type. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are gas giants. And Pluto is made of rock and ice -- more like a overgrown comet in its composition that any of the other planets in our Solar System. It takes Mars 1.8 years to circle the Sun, but it takes it almost exactly 2 years to complete a trip through the Zodiac ... because part of that time it retrogrades.

* The Drumbeat of Mars -- Marching to His Own Militant Music ---> Fire energy ---> The glyph for Mars in Astrology is the well-known symbol for male in biology. Even in this stylized representation, it is phallic, sexual and blatant in what it depicts ... and anyone who has ever seen one of the real thing it signifies recognizes it at once.

* Mars: Ruler of Aries -- Symbol of Your Active, Assertive, Energetic Self ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color! ---> Mars shows passion, initiative and self-assertion. ---> Mars, fiery red, the favorite prop of science fiction legend, named for the intense, passionate mythological god of war, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's capacity to take action, show independence and self-assertion, pursue goals and ambitions, use physical and sexual energy, and exert his force and willpower in situations of competition and conflict.
