Red is a Mars color!
Symbol of energy and ambition
In Astrology, Mars represents physical energy, your ability to take action and your instincts for self-assertion and aggression. Mars supports your independence and your ability to set goals and achieve them.
It is associated with overt sexual energy and competition in general. The Inner Self fueled by Mars energy knows how to take care of itself, how to get what it wants and when situations call for force and willpower. Mars energy wants you to feel safe, capable, confident and strong. It is devoted to helping you take care of Number One. Basically, Mars energy is your ability to get stuff done.
Male energy ... pure and simple
Mars energy is considered masculine, no matter what its sign, although obviously some signs suit its obstreperous pushy nature better than others. Mars, along with the Sun, reveals how you express the masculine side of your nature. In fact, Mars is the main driver here.
Positively, your Mars energy is ambitious, dynamic, bold and capable. Negatively, it is brash, pugnacious, inconsiderate and uncooperative. These are virtues and character problems commonly associated with men.

How you take care of yourself
Your Mars energy describes the way you pursue your ambitions and take care of yourself. You are very aware of it in any situation of strife, conflict, competition or danger. It's how you protect yourself and defend your interests when these are on the line.
Other factors in your chart and in your life ... and other inner selves ... will shade and influence the expression of this energy, but through it all, in situations where you need to stand your ground ... or chase your true desires, your Mars energy is on your side to make it happen.
Your Inner Self of action and initiative
Your Mars energy is that of your Inner Warrior and Pioneer. It runs on courage and initiative and is in charge of doing physical work. Its sign, house position and support from other Inner Selves shows how you go about this.
Mars energy fights for what's important to you -- sometimes literally. It builds the things you need to survive and protect yourself. It tells how you are either a force to be reckoned with -- or a diplomat not an adversary -- or a lover not a fighter -- or a complete and total pushover. Some sort of self-protection is simply necessary for you to get along in the world.
Your basic survival skills
Mars energy is tied in to your basic survival skills and instincts, but it can meet these needs in many ways ... including some so devious as to be virtually invisible. Mars energy helps you strategize and carry out plans. It helps you express love and satisfy desire. It also fuels things like anger and temper, and when it turns ugly there can be actual injury and blood in the streets.
Mars position by sign and house reveals where you assert yourself, where you fight for your territory and ambitions and how you physically take care of yourself. It shows where action and progress begin in your life -- and the ignition switch that gets you going.
