Mars in Aries through the houses   Leave a comment

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus – or so the story goes but is it true.  We have lived in a culture where women have been shamed into denying their Mars and have been required to project that energy onto their partner. For men the same can be said of Venus.

Only in recent years have women been allowed to own their Mars and many are still uncomfortable doing so.  This is especially true of those with more dynamic Mars aspects such as Mars in Aries both professionally and in the bedroom this was seen as male energy only. Whether you are male or female this is what your Mars energy says about you.

In ancient Roman Myth, Mars was the god of War and also an agricultural guardian, a combination characteristic of early Rome. He was second in importance only to Jupiter and Neptune and he was the most prominent of the military gods in the religion of the Roman army. Most of his festivals were held in March, the month named after him, and in October, which began and ended the season for military campaigning and farming.  Mars was a part of the Archaic Triad along with Jupiter and Quirinus, the latter of whom as a guardian of the Roman people had no Greek equivalent. Mars represented military power as a way to secure peace, and was a father (pater) of the Roman people. In the founding myths of Rome, Mars was the father of Romulus and Rebus with Rhea Silvia.


His love affair with Venus symbolically reconciled the two different traditions of Rome’s founding; Venus was the divine mother of the hero Aeneas, celebrated as the Trojan refugee who “founded” Rome several generations before Romulus laid out the city walls.  Mars was the son of Juno alone   It may explain why the Matronalia, a festival celebrated by married women in honor of Juno as goddess of childbirth, occurred on the first day of Mars’ month, which was also the birthday of Mars. In the earliest Roman calendar, March was the first month, and the god would have been born with the new year.

The consort of Mars was Nerio or Nerine, “Valor.” She represents the vital force (vis), power (potentia) and majesty (maiestas) of Mars.  Mars and Nerine were celebrated together at a festival held on March 23.  Virility as a kind of life force (vis) or virtue (virtus) is an essential characteristic of Mars. As an agricultural guardian, he directs his energies toward creating conditions that allow crops to grow, which may include warding off hostile forces of nature.  Mars Quirinus was the protector of the  “citizens” or “civilians”, whose oaths were required to make a treaty. As a guarantor of treaties, Mars Quirinus is thus a god of peace: “When he rampages, Mars is called Gradivus, but when he’s at peace Quirinus.”  “Father Mars” or “Mars the Father” is the form in which the god is invoked in the agricultural prayer of Cato, and he appears with this title in several other literary texts and inscriptions.  Mars’ ability to dispel the enemy on the battlefield was transferred to the sick person’s struggle against illness; healing is expressed in terms of warding off and rescue.

Mars in Aries is in his own sign, here he is all of the above, warrior, defender, father, virtue, protector, majesty and power.

Mars in Aries is a dynamic go-getter who is unafraid to go after what they want in life whether it is a promotion at work or a partner in the bedroom when these people see what they want they tend to go all out to get it.  However they do so honestly and are not usually selfish, they go for what they want in life but respect the same of everybody and are always more than willing to share their rewards.  Mars in Aries is passionate about protecting loved ones and they express their emotions openly whether they are in the boardroom or the bedroom you will always know where you are with them and how they feel.
