Mars in Astrology
In Astrology, Mars symbolizes your capacity to initiate action, show aggression, and carry out strategies in the pursuit of goals. Mars is the metaphor ... the astrological symbol ... for pure physical energy. This includes your use of sexual energy as well.
Libra's energy is the process of linking up with other people, seeking out diverse viewpoints and opinions, incorporating the ideas of others into the overall endeavor, and gaining greater strength through partnerships and unity.
When Mars is in Libra, people are sociable, charming, cooperative, and that involve partners and "teamwork." They use tactics and perspectives that are "nice," indirect, inoffensive, concerned with "harmony," and which emphasize fairness and justice.
