MARS - Planet Mars in Astrology

As per Astronomy

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun. Mars (Greek: Ares) is the god of War. The planet probably got this name due to its red color. It is sometimes referred to as the Red Planet. The name of the month March derives from Mars. The mean distance between the Sun and Mars is 141 million miles. Mars take 687 days to revolve around the Sun. Mars is smaller than the earth and its diameter is around 4, 200 miles.

It is just double the size of Moon. Its mass is about 1/10th the mass of the earth. Mars takes 24hours 37 minutes and 23 seconds to rotate on its axis. Mars resembles our earth in various ways especially with regards to time of rotation and to the tilt in axis, which makes us feel that it is an escaped satellite of Earth.

Mars is the action planet of the zodiac. Energy, passion, drive and determination are all right up Mars's alley. This planet commands you to stand up, be noticed and get things done. Mars speaks to the power , confident expression, energy, action, and desire. It is the survival instinct, and can be thought of as the "leftover" animal nature of man. 

Mars rules our animal instincts for aggression, anger, and survival. Our sexual desires come under the rule of Mars. Mars is most associated with basic body attraction. This is the planet of action rather than reaction. With Mars, there is no contemplation before action. The drive associated with Mars differs from that of the Sun in that it is self-assertion rather than assertion of the will; it is raw energy rather than creative energy.

Ambition and competition are also within Mars's realm. Whether it's at work or on the field of play, Mars encourages us to face challenges and to be our best -- or better. Aggression is part of the plan here, although Mars also values courage and honor. Assertion and a daring, fearless nature please this planet. Mangal own two signs namely Mesha and Vrischik. It is deeply exalted at 28 degrees Makara and deeply debilitated at 28 degrees Karkata. Its Mooltrikona Rashi is Mesha. Mars represents ones strength and it holds the rank of Commander in Chief in the Planetary Cabinet. His stature is high and has a blood red complexion; Kartikeya represents it. It is of masculine gender having predominance of Fire. It is of Kshatriya Varna having the predominance of Tamsik Gunas.

It's important to note that Mars's energy can be constructive or destructive. The God of War in ancient times, Mars could be brutally violent. While this energy still emanates from the planet, it also asks us to harness this force for good. Stamina, ambition and achievement are all part of Mars' mantra.

Mars rules our sexuality and sexual energy, and governs weapons, accidents and surgery (the last two illustrating the yin and yang nature of this planet). In the end, however, the energy of Mars can be quite useful if used properly. In the chart, the position of Mars by sign shows our basic sexual nature, how we express our anger (our temper), what makes us angry, and our first instinct to act.

Lord Mars - In Hindus Mythology lord sun

According to Hindu Mythology Managal is considered as Bhumi – putra. He is considered to be the son of mother Earth. It is said that when earth was lying submerged in vast expanse of the sea. Lord Vishnu in his Varaha Avatar lifted the earth and brought it out and placed it in a suitable orbit. Mother earth was grateful and asked for a feminine boon. “O God give me a child of yours!” To which God agreed. Mangal is the result of this godly union with the rescued Earth. One such story relates to Mars being the son of Lord Shiva and mother earth.

In western mythology Mars is considered as God of war and also hunting. In the bible Mars is symbolized by the devil. It is the God of force and energy. Mars is considered the Commander in chief of the celestial armies.
