Mars in Scorpio through the houses   2 comments

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus yet the soul knows no gender.  Mars in Scorpio individuals are driven to connect on a soul level with others this connection knows no gender.

In ancient times the signs of Taurus and Scorpio represented the spring and autumn equinox.

The goddess Ereshkigal ruling the underworld and the non-productive part of the natural cycle when the earth reabsorbs the vegetation and recycles the nutrients.  Ereshkigal’s husband Gulganna the heavenly bull representing the fertile aspect of the cycle. Ereshkigal is often described as Innana’s (Venus) big sister and the Myth of Inanna and Dumuzi involves replenishing the earth through giving up the seven auras or energies of life itself.  Innana (Venus) herself gives up these auras and returns them to fertilise the soil before Dumuzi takes her place.  Mars in Scorpio is well aware of the need to nurture and replenish the natural energies within relationship and of the balance of natural cycle. Mars here understands the importance of themes of death and regeneration as a means of continuing the fertility of the natural cycle and allowing growth to continue. ‘La petite mort’ (little death) is a French expression often used to refer to orgasm. It literally meansthe small death. The meaning that this infers is that essentially a part of the self dies or is released in the experience of orgasm. And indeed many people find this to be true.

In Roman mythology this cycle is portrayed by the myth of Ceres and Proserpina.  Venus, in order to bring love to Pluto, sent her son Amor also known as Cupid to hit Pluto with one of his arrows. Proserpina was at the Pergusa Lake, where she was playing with some nymphs and collecting flowers, when Pluto came out from the Mount etna with four black horses named Orphnaeus, Aethon, Nycteus and Alastor. He abducted her so he could marry her and live with her in the underworld of which he was the ruler.

Her mother Ceres, went looking for her in vain to every corner of the earth, but was not able to find anything but a small belt that was floating upon a little lake (made with the tears of the nymphs). In her desperation Ceres angrily stopped the growth of fruits and vegetables. Ceres refused to go back to Mount Olympus and started walking on the Earth, making a desert at every step.

Worried, Jupiter sent Mercury to order Pluto to free Proserpina. Pluto obeyed, but before letting her go he made her eat six pomegranate seeds, because those who have eaten the food of the dead could not return to the world of the living. This meant that she would have to live six months of each year with him, and stay the rest with her mother.

Mars represents our instincts such as fight or flight, the desire to protect and defend loved one, sex drive and its expression.  Mars also affects how we fight off illness.

Mars in Scorpio male and female need to find a deep connection to others, they are driven by the need to fulfil a deep emotional drive that connects them on a soul level to friends, family and lovers.  These individuals need to feel and explore the intensity of their emotions through their relationships with others.  Whatever the relationship Mars in Scorpio individuals are driven to explore their own needs and the issues that arrive from these needs, their fears of abandonment and their desire to manipulate and control.  Mars embraces, and is driven to explore these aspects of their personality both through occupations and in their personal lives.  Mars in Scorpio individuals are passionate and intense when they feel a deep connection with another.  When there is no deep connection this energy can be expressed as mere sexual curiosity and expression, in which their partner is of little consequence as a vehicle for their sexual release.  With Mars in Scorpio there is no middle ground.  Mars in this aspect is often misunderstood they are not dynamic lovers they seek not to thrill their partners with passion and eroticism but to connect with them physically and emotionally as part of a deep bonding experience.  Those other things may interest them as they interest most of us but they are of little importance next to the deep bonding experience they seek.
