Mars in Astrology represents Energy, so it tells us how connected we are to the immense warmth of our cosmic light source. A well placed Mars will let the person experience plenty of energy, flowing warmly, protecting and replenishing. The person brings light wherever action, strategy, or bold moves are needed. A poorly conditioned Mars makes it challenging to see the light in situations of conflict or lack of energy. The connection with nature’s unbounded energy is experienced less easily, less often or less clearly.
Mars in Vedic Astrology represents energy, assertiveness, and the ability to take action. It represents the way one uses energy on many different levels. It manifests in the mind as the ability to analyze situations; it may also measure the force of ambition. It manifests in the body as physical energy and strength. In the social sphere, Mars represents those relationships that test one's strength, such as one's competitors and enemies. The condition of Mars in an individual horoscope will indicate the level of one's energy and ambition.
