Mars in the 2nd House: I Don’t Need Your Charity or Handouts

Question: If Mars is in the 2nd house, I’ve read that I will always have to fight to survive and make money, and that it will be bad for my finances. Is that right? Mars in your 2nd house makes you very passionate, hard-working, and willing to fight for what you want. There may be times in your life when you have to take care of your property, money, and possessions because you want to be your own person and get what is rightfully yours. A big income isn’t necessary, but…...

Mars in the 10th House Quotes: The Fighter

Something precious needs protection, and it’s up to you to take care of it. That’s your mission in the world. As befits the nature of Mars, that mission is warrior work. You are likely to make enemies in the process. Furthermore, with your Mars in the tenth house, this battle promises to be public. The community will witness it. Before we start sounding like this placement is based on the script of an Arnold Schwarzenegger film, let’s add a few subtleties: some battles are fought quietly, just by holding the…...

Mars in the 6th House Quotes: One of the World’s Workers

Stressful work and stressful responsibilities wear people down. Given a long run of that kind of pressure, you will tend to get snappish, even cold and brutal. With Mars in the sixth house, there is a tendency for you to attract that kind of pressure into your life, especially over time. Given long exposure, it could even have an adverse impact upon your physical health. This is about as far as the fortune-telling astrologer would go: there is a tendency to think of Mars as “bad,” and to relate the…...

Mars in the 2nd House Quotes: The Money Maker

Here’s a very traditional reading of Mars in the second house: conflict and trouble over money. Sometimes fate or karma would have it that with this configuration you run into nasty “random” issues with domestic finances: job losses, accidents, fires, even theft. Such eventualities can indeed lead to trouble as you attempt to survive the adversity. Cutting to the chase, with Mars the issue is always the appropriate expression of force – courage, entrepreneurial spirit, and energy. Imagine struggling to “make ends meet” after the birth of a child. Should…...

Mars in the 12th House Quotes: Finds In Seclusion – Powers of Assertion

Many a traditional astrologer would cast a nervous glance at Mars in the twelfth house, viewing it as portending secret enemies, surprise attacks, and injury. That view is unnecessarily grim, although we will integrate it – optionally! – into our evolutionary perspective before we are done. The key here is the realization that edgy, extreme experiences often strip us down to the bones, spiritually speaking. A near miss in an automobile, for example, can lead a person to think profound thoughts about the ultimate direction and purpose of life. Illness…...

Mars in the 8th House: The Death Defier

Nothing is so effective as intimacy at bringing our craziest, most emotionally charged issues bubbling up to the surface. The eighth house is traditional astrology’s house of death – and the title gets us in the right mood! Something always has to die here, and usually it’s connected with our pride, our defences, or our attachments. With your Mars – the war god – in the eighth house, you have signed up to face your fears. There is a wall of fire here. Its mortar is anger. And its bricks…...

Mars in the 4th House Quotes: Emotional Tensions

Home, ideally, is a place where one can relax. But with Mars in the fourth, it tends to magnetize hassles in your home. You may have more than your fair share of simple mechanical or existential misfortune there – burst pipes, leaky roofs, evil landlords, noisy or scary neighbors. Maybe you work at home, with the demonology that entails. Perhaps you have to fight a protracted battle to get the kind of place you want and need. There may be knotty issues around different lifestyle needs. Any or all of…...

Mars in the 11th House Quotes: The Strong Friend

The pioneering spirit of Mars, when placed in the eleventh house, will make its presence felt in the individual’s social life. Here is the pack leader among a group of friends, spurning them into action and injecting them with enthusiasm and energy for the development and furtherance of a joint interest or cause.

Mars in the 3rd House Quotes: The Talkmaster

The God of War in the house of speech! What does that phrase conjure for you? Lively conversations, heated words, stinging repartee? Well, all of the above may be possible.

Mars in the 5th House Quotes: Mars Here Says You Want to Be Entertained

The 5th house is the house of play. And when Mars plays, there is no doubt who is boss of the sandbox. The competitive spirit is very great; and if you build a bigger or better castle than your friend with Mars in the 5th, watch out – you may end up with sand in your eyes. Who said it’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game, that counts? Not likely to have been somebody with Mars in Leo’s natural house. And the same applies…...

Mars in the 7th House Quotes: Die-With-Your-Boots-On Commitment

Mars in the house of marriage does not mean you are doomed to endless war, but it is still daunting to think of a promise of ongoing conflicts with it there. Here we come to the heart of the matter, conflict with others is a real possibility, but there is a higher ground too. Wherever Mars lies in the chart, you must practice the “yoga” of fierceness. Boundaries must be set – and defended. It is highly probable that early relationships are hell-bent on destruction, there is something about you…...
