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.

* Starting with Mars, the planets can be in any sign of the Zodiac. They are not dependent on the position of the Sun itself, unlike Mercury and Venus who both remain in very close proximity to the Sun in your horoscope. Mercury is never more than one sign away from the Sun, Venus never more than two.

More About Mars

* Mars rules Aries, the first sign of the Natural Zodiac. It is also associated with the 1st House of the horoscope -- the house that begins with the Ascendant -- the position in the Zodiac where the Sun rises each day. The first house deals with personal presentation and self-assertion.

* Mars is known as The Red Planet -- and as a star it seems to glow a reddish color in the sky. The red comes from the iron oxide that makes up most of the surface of Mars ... which means Mars is basically rusty. It is also a favorite feature in science fiction as a possible host to alien forms of life.

* In the physical body, Mars rules the head and the skull.

* Just as Venus is essentially pure feminine energy, Mars is essentially considered pure masculine energy. It gives information in your horoscope and therefore your personality about how you can and do use this fundamental force. Everyone has this; everyone needs this. Everyone needs to also understand how it works -- so they can gain the benefits they deserve and require.
