Mars and its Energy

The zodiac sign in which Mars is placed in the natal chart shows the expression of energies. The  energies must be evaluated in four different ways and the sign that Mars occupies at birth intends the type and degree of energy .

The first type of energy is the Physical energy, which depicts how hard or diligently an individual works, his aptitude for sports and having the power to get what you want in life.

The second type of energy is the mental energy, the energy spent thinking, communicating and pursuing intellectual goals and ambitions.

The third type of energy is the practical energy that is necessary to make your way in life, planning and organizing, holding down a job, being responsible and dependable.

Finally, Mars defines emotional energies which show up first as sex drive, but, may include other aspects of emotions such as feelings and setting emotional boundaries  and drives toward artistic endeavors.

The position of Mars indicates the type of energies effected. For example, if Mars is placed in the fire signs i.e. Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, then the energies effected are mainly physical. When Mars is placed in the earth signs i.e. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, then the material energies are effected. When Mars is placed in airy signs i.e. Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, then it affects mental energies. When Mars is placed in watery sign i.e. Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, it affects emotional energies.
