Hi Rad and Group,
Here is my Mars..
Mars through the houses
Regardless of where Mars lands in the birth chart, as an archetype, Mars represents the lead point in the Soul’s evolution. In this case with Aries on the MC and Mars, the ruler representing possible career and work functions. It is important to also note that Mars is driving the entire deal, not just in work but in life. Mars is referred to as the lower octave of Pluto, the Soul. Mars, the ego, takes the unconscious desires that originate from the Soul and acts upon them, making them a living breathing reality. We think because the ego is conscious that these desires are emanating from an egocentric level and that we are in control of them. But Mars acts out of pure, raw instinct, similar to the wave separating from the sea, there is zero forethought, it just moves
All of us have a myriad of desires that dictate the way we think and the way we act. These desires lead to choices, Mars, that then become actions, which will in turn give us information about the experience we just had. Mars signifies the instinctual urge that we all have to move forward in our life. As Souls we all are in a continual state of becoming, and to become is to act and to move. In the case with Mars in Aries in the first house, this action is rooted in pure instinct and these Souls demand unchecked expression, with the freedom to change their choices and will.Mars in the 1st
With an Aries M/C and the the ruler Mars being in the first house, there would be an even greater need for freedom and adventure. This would accentuate the entirety of this archetype defined on the mid heaven. A brand new evolutionary chapter with respect to the Soul’s work and career function with the need to express whatever desire emanates instinctually from the Soul. The scenery needs to be ever changing with plenty of options for upward movement and a vast array of space for changing expression as it may change on a dime. The Soul would need to experience on ongoing intensity, where a great deal is in motion on a sustained basis and where visible progress is always present. Aries as an archetype tends to only looks forward, not back and so one of the lessons here is to remind them, to also find inspiration and motivation in the distance gained.Consensus
: Fire Starter and Fire Fighter
To defend and protect, to create and to impact
A true fire fighter could apply here but also anyone in the military as well as any career where physical motion or power tools are used. The Soul’s energy would feed off action and in some cases emergency situations and would be instinctually courageous and inwardly equipped to respond in these types of situations. As the Soul climbs the corporate ladder, they could be leaders, presidents, CEO’s of companies and true entrepeneurs who crave the freedom of being able to blaze new trails.

As the Soul evolves into the Spiritual state, this reflects a time when the Soul is in the process of purging the impurities within the Soul and any residual conditioning that is remaining. Souls at this stage are in a Virgo state of being, humbled by their place on the path and constantly interfacing with all that they are not, also working to be of service in helping others on the path of evolution, extending their hand down the mountain to give others a lift. They often are directors of their own destiny and choose professions with tremendous freedom to manage their time in any way they wish.Mars in the 2nd
Random action narrows with Mars in the 2nd and survival is their front line, as a result this leads to self interest, for the sake of what the Soul deems to be what they need to survive. Even if this Soul has the bank account to reflect security, there will be a feeling that there is never enough to survive, so they will continue to build that base in case the ‘bottom drops out’. It may have been a Soul who lost everything in another life and had some dyer survival situation, so everything that one builds creates more of a potential buffer. I have had female clients married to very wealthy partner who insist on working, even if it is minor pay, in order to cover themselves, just in case.
There is a need for these Souls to isolate and self-contemplate in order to realize within themselves what it wishes to establish. Action is now internalized and concentrated with an effort to build something solid and secure, whether this is monetarily or physically as with respect to the body or a literal building.
Considering numbers don’t lie, they may choose professions where they can count on to securely build a financial base. Mars in the 2nd, often times in this cases also in Taurus, the Soul prefers to work alone, and they need down time, time to isolate and time to ground themselves.

- Material Simplifier
“Less is more”, as one progresses through this stage and learns that material things are only added weight for the way ahead and there is a pairing down effect, progressively realizing that the wealth is within. A Soul who needs to freedom of time to simply SIT and BE with God, one who leads a monastic life, a yogi or a monk and later one who leads and teaches the yogi’s and the monks the spiritual ways, can see this as the 2nd house is fixed and polarity is Scorpio, leading to a merging with the ONE. This signature could also connect to TANTRA, in the 2nd or the 8th.Mars in the 3rd
With Mars, the ruler of the M/C in the 3rd house, this would symbolize Souls who need a diversity of experiences to express themselves and one whose profession involves communication and information, speaking, writing, the use of the voice and the hands, they have an instinct with their way with words. They can be highly charged beings who work fast and have an elevated nervous system. At times the only way to for these Souls to feel centered is to be busy, collecting information via books, magazines, newspapers or the Internet. Their chosen careers will have a strong emphasis on the mine and the intellect.
Although I do not have a birth time, Marie Harf has Mars in Gemini. She is the deputy spokesperson for the US Department of State and a former spokesperson for the Central Intelligence Agency. During the 2012 presidential election, Harf helped craft President Obama's national security and communications strategy, and also served as campaign spokeswoman on national security issues. She has a quick mind and naturally is able to swiftly field questions rifled at her from debaters with conviction and confidence, regardless of their status, position and post.

Souls born with an Aries midheaven and Mars in the 4th can be driven to empower women or lead women in some way. They may desire to work in fields relating to the home or the womb and may also be inspired to help others gain more inner security either by helping to create a space that nurtures or comforts them or to literally be there to support the transition from the womb to the world as when a child is being born. Many Souls will have Mars in Libra in this case which will help in some way to create more gender balance between the sexes as they strive to support and empower women and the feminine. Souls with Mars in the 4th will have an instinctual empathy for others and can encourage self determination in others. They can help others understand their own blocks and help them blow past them by decreasing their dependencies on others.
One the most well known public figures with Mars in the 4th is famous for the entrance of personal computer people granting people the freedom, Mars, to work from home.
World famous entrepreneur of the personal computer revolution and philanthropist Bill Gates, Co founder and CEO of Microsoft, who also happens to be the richest person in the world since 1995. The ruler of his Aries midheaven is Mars in Libra in the 4th house which is conjunct Mercury, ruler of his 3rd house cusp. The computer revolution, Uranus in Leo trines that midheaven, His business tactics have often been criticized as anti-competitive, Mars in Libra. He and his partner, Libra, are global philanthropists and started the Gates Foundation. They work with partner organizations world wide, Mars in Libra, to tackle critical problems, one of which is in lifting poor people out of hunger and poverty.Consensus

In advanced stages of the Spiritual State, these Souls anima/animus will be fully balanced and integrated and Souls would desire to help others become more integrated emotionally and thus spirituallyMars in the 5th
With Mars in the 5th house, the Soul will be born with a special sense of destiny within this social and public purpose and a special mission and creative life purpose to fulfill. They will need maximum freedom and independence to discover their specialness that they feel must to be brought to the world. Similar to a 5th house Pluto, with Mars in the 5th, being that Mars takes the unconscious desires form the Soul and acts upon them, the Soul will want to be the director of their own play, the creator of their own masterpiece and their is an instinctual desire to be recognized as special by the world. As Souls on this journey, we all experience 2 co-equal desires, one is to separate from the Source, that which created us, in order to individuate and express our creative uniqueness, and the other co-equal desire being to return home to the Source. The 5th house Mars will aspire to create the feeling of wholeness in their outer reality yet this longing can only ever be eternally satisfied by returning back to the Source. Every time a goal has been reached or a creative pursuit fulfilled, it will create a sense of oneness, serving as an echo of what it will feel like to merge back to the sea and to the Source, all the time. But no sooner does the Soul feel complete, will it be replaced with an emptiness and a hunger to feel filled up again. One of the karmic and evolutionary problems is that many of these Souls will instinctually feel as if they themselves are the source of their own creations, with the ruler of Leo being the Sun, they will feel they are the center of the universe and as if everything revolves around them. This of course depends on the stage of evolution, but this Soul will repeatedly work to fulfill this feeling of union and connection via creative pursuits that allow the Soul to reach that climax of expression. This is in large part rooted in their desire to attract attention and validation. Herein lies the problem, the fact that this feeling, once reached, cannot be sustained and will quickly be replaced with an gaping inner void, a bottomless pit of want and need and a search for another something that can re-create that feeling and attract attention. Evolutionarily speaking, the Soul is needing to be in charge of their own unique and special life purpose and so they will follow whatever desire is emerging in order to honor that feeling for their own evolution sake. In would not be a surprise that many Soul with Mars in the 5th, would like to be in the limelight or on some version of life’s stage, with the red carpet rolled out for them, this does depend on the stage of evolution and other factors in the chart, but the instinct to shine and to be special will be true across the board. Souls with Mars in the 5th are learning to link their special destiny with a socially useful or relative function.
Considering the 5ht house connects with children, professions with Mars in the 5th could include being a director of children’s organizations, whether it be principles in a schools (for many Mars will be in Sagittarius here so this could also include teachers for children), leaders in sports such as coaches or art organizations that rear children and help them blossom. Any creative pursuit where the Soul has freedom of movement and expression, such as an artist or a dancer on stage, an actor, a sports star, would all apply. An advanced stage of evolution Soul in the Spiritual state. with Mars in Sagittarius in the 5th, could translate into a famous spiritual teacher, a teacher of natural laws.
A few well known examples here would be actor John Travolta who starred in Saturday Night Fever and Grease which were movies involving dancing and singing, also the Comedy musical Hairspray, a dancing musical where he played an overweight working house wife. But on the other extreme, he was the lead in the violent and somewhat bloody, Mars, movie Pulp Fiction which is a crime thriller, where one of the most famous scenes was him dancing with Uma Thurman. John Travolta has Mars in Sagittarius, which can also connect to comedy, in the 5th house. ruler Jupiter in the Gemini in the 11th, which connects to his need for diversity and in some cases shock value as in his role in Hairspray as well as Pulp Fiction. Mars does square Venus in Pisces in the 8th, Venus is conjunct the SUN in Aquarius which connects to his love and desire to express himself through dance and music as well.

With Virgo following Leo, there must be a ‘fall to the kingdom’ and the pyramid becomes inverted. The Soul is at the bottom in order to serve the needs of the whole. Souls with Mars in the 6th have been learning necessary lessons in humility and will experience pervasive doubt in much of their movement and choices as if their first instinct is to question themselves and their abilidty to perform and experience success in their chosen fiels. They will be their own worst enemy and be known to shoot themselves in the foot along the way. Their greatest obstacle will be themselves and they will work until their last breath to improve upon what they do and who they wish to become. Souls with Mars in this position are in a constant state of self analysis. As a result of their own feelings of lack of self worth, they will naturally and instinctually be drawn to serve and help the underdog for they know exactly how the underdog feels. Their personal desires and needs may at times be sacrificed for the tribe, the culture or the greater whole which is a necessary step in their evolution.
Souls with a 6th house Mar can also be perfectionists as well as work-aholics. They will also never feel as if like they are doing enough and will be focusing on what is not finished, not right or flawed in some way. This can at times create a freeze, or a paralysis, and a feeling of overwhelm, which can lead to a procrastination and in some cases a crisis. They need work that has structure and routine and for them to feel in some way as if they are able to control and direct a positive outcome, one with measurable progress.
Because this is the house of health and repairs, Souls with a 6th house Mars are often drawn to the health fields where the Soul is dedicated to areas of serving the sick and the wounded, the aching and the broken, which would include not just people but the animal kingdom as well.
In its highest form, these Souls are the essence of humility and will be of service to anyone who is sincere and who has a legitimate need. By actualizing a proper work function, these Soul can further expand their own personal awareness of their right work and natural role in the world. As one advances and this would especially be true in the 1st stage Spiritual as this is a Virgo reality for Souls, they will come to know how best to serve the Divine, other wise known as their Karma Yoga. By cultivating an awareness of the Divine, these Souls will progressively purge the impurities of the ego in such a way as to at some point allow the universal current to be expressed through them.

Healer with crystalsMars in the 7th
Souls with Mars in the 7th are learning objective awareness and how they can bring their own unique individuality into a social context. Considering Mars rules the opposite house, the 1st house, which is naturally Mars ruled, they are learning lessons surrounding giving and equality as well as in listening. The Soul will be instinctually driven to help others, most often in a leadership kind of role, where listening to what the group needs will be paramount in order for a balance to be struck. They will also instinctually know what others need and can serve as ideal bridge between two worlds, the mediator and the diplomats. Through an exposure to a variety of people will come an understanding of the varying value systems and what every person brings to the table. Even though many with Mars in the 7th may find themselves in a leadership role, they are learning how to experience themselves as an equal and uniting one’s life with others. In the past, things may have been way out of balance so they are learning to strike that better balance by feeling instinctually drawn to professions and work functions that allow them to work on this evolutionary need.

Leaders of Spiritual Communities
These Souls are simply in line to HELP another, in whatever way they feel driven, whether it is in nursing, counseling where listening is required, or to lead a movement of people who are seeking JUSTICE, which can often be seen in the individuated state where Souls are not afraid to stand out, speak up and put themselves on the line for what is right, for change, and for fairness.Mars in the 8th
The Scorpio archetype can be seen as the ‘surgeon or the priest’, for there is no middle ground, nothing is tackled halfway, it’s all the way or not all. Mars in the 8th Soul reflects an intense nature on all levels and they will attract a great depth of life experience, including what they choose to do in their work and career life. The last thing their Soul wants to do is to ‘play it safe’
The Soul is here to push any and all perceived limits and they are karmically designed to blow pat them. They will be instinctually attracted to people who have the power to help them and will be drawn in their direction with a desire to osmose the power that other Soul’s hold into order to evolve themselves and grow beyond their own personal limitations. This may also lead to situations where they are involved in various power plays and ultimately rendered powerless, but chasing power can also lead to greater power and these cycles of power vs powerlessness in their profession is inevitable. Each choices brings them deeper into themselves thereby attracting environments that push their own pre-conceived boundaries. Each desire this Soul has may lead to experiencing a death of the old and a rebirth of the new as they are continually shedding skins and eliminating all the things that do not support their evolution. They would be attracted to careers that are quite karmic in nature and perhaps have people in these environments that have betrayed them in the past and as a result have attracted these fated turns as a result of evolutionary necessity, to confront and to continue. Although she did not have an Aries Midheaven, Princess Diana did have an 8th house Mars and Pluto and her life reflected this position in spades.
Souls with Mars in the 8th may also use their own power to manipulate and dominate others and will also be given a new opportunity to make new and better choices. These Soul will be repeatedly attract intense environments and situations whereby they are forced to get to the root of anything, where they are peeling back the layers of others, physically, emotionally, psychologically or otherwise, and they won’t stop until they get there. The Soul would be natural drawn to work in a field that would facilitate and accelerate metamorphoses, one that would keep them in constant confrontations of their own limits and be driven to lead others into the fire as well. They would be attracted to work functions and professions that help others eliminate all of the barriers(desires) that are preventing a merging with the source. This would occur in the Spiritual Stage of evolution and can be seen in advanced counseling therapies with a spiritual focus.
Also relative to the need for motion and speed connecting with Aries/Mars would be a Soul who would go to the edge and even risk one’s life for their sport such as Evil Knieval who had an 8th house Mars.Consensus

The need for freedom within ones career is also paramount here with Mars, a fire planet, in a Sagittarius house. As with all fire houses, and now with a fire planet in a fire house, there will also be an instinctual feeling that they have a special destiny to fulfill and this is directly linked to the individual’s relationship to the cosmological, metaphysical, philosophical and religious principles that explain their connection to the universe. The Soul has a desire to explain one’s relationship to larger forces in the universe and in the world, will be interested in expanding their consciousness and philosophical understanding of life and in turn have a desire to spread this wisdom to others. Their own natural pull toward needing to know this understanding will require total freedom to pursue whatever experiences necessary, whether through international travel or higher education to discover the knowledge that explains these larger forces. The 9th House Mars is learning through a diversity if experiences, the unity of all paths, of all truths, so these teachings can be shared with others. They are learning how to take a diverse number of facts and through their inherent ability to synthesize, they will come to an even greater understanding of the total nature of personal and universal truths. A natural teacher of the universe who is able to do this masterfully in the show the “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey ( an update to Carl Sagan's Cosmos: A Personal Voyage (1980) is Neil deGrasse Tyson, an American astrophysicist and science communicator. Although I do not have a birth time on him for a Mars house placement, he does have Saturn in Sagittarius, he is built for teaching, a true natural, and he has Mars in Gemini. Saturn in Sagittarius forms a Grand Trine with Uranus in Leo as well as the South Node in Aries so you can see the Sagittarian influence here.

As with all cardinal houses, Mars in the 10th represents a condition where an entire chapter with respect to ones’ career has come to a close and a brand new beginning is being initiated. This Soul will be learning via various chosen experiences how to build upon and establish their own personal authority within a culture or society. Because of their desire for freedom and upward mobility, a rising up the ranks will be a primary desire, and one where they are willing to put in the time, earning their stripes, similar to someone in the military climbing up the ranks or someone in corporate America climbing up the corporate ladder so they can finally be Captain in charge, numero uno and the one that holds the highest ranking post or position. This may also play out in a way where Souls choose to not join the system at all, as in the individuated state and go to work for themselves, especially in those latter stages. They are learning through direct experience how to link their own philosophy and identity into the framework of a society, a culture or a nation. Their entire identity or ego will be based and dependent upon their public/social purpose, for their identity with their career or social position will be what creates their emotional security base. Mars in the 10th Souls are generally quite self disciplined, self determined and motivated as they repeatedly set goals and raise the bar with each goal they reach. This natural instinct will serve to help motivate others to do the same and as a result they make natural leaders and tend to be able to easily shoulder a great deal of responsibility. Ultimately, they desire control and want to be in charge of the direction of their destiny versus someone else directing things for them and desire social recognition for their spirited pursuits.Consensus

Souls born with Mars in 11th house desire to break free from outmoded or crystallized forms of self definition and self expression. The Soul, regardless of what stage of evolution, are on the path of liberation from the past and wish to leave behind everything that represents their limiting history. They will progressively continue to know who they are independent of cultural conditioning and parental influence and will reject anything that arbitrarily defines them in a way that does not naturally resonate. They will make choices, Mars, that reflect a severing of all attachments that block necessary growth. These Souls have a natural innovative capacity because of their instinct to explore new approaches and do not follow the norm and these innovations can very well be ahead of their time. In extreme cases the Mars in the 11th house will have zero tolerance for anything defined by society and will drop out of the system all together, and attempt to live on the fringes of society, in some cases alone or in other cases where they are seeking people of like mind to connect and collaborate with, those who are as different as they feel to be. An 11th house Mars energizes a life of transformation of oneself and of others. Souls have desired to usher in the new, to shock others into thinking differently and to disregard everything that is no longer working any longer. They can be attracted to paths that are on the
cutting edge of technology, perhaps involved in something revolutionary, a Soul who is driven to mastermind their own inventions, and spearhead alternative paths. These Souls are instinctually driven to personally experience an understanding that their power lies in being different. They can play a variety of socially meaningful roles by accessing their instinctual inventiveness. By learning how to act and implement, they can be become effective leaders and instruments of innovation and creative change.Consensus

A Soul in this stage could come up with a brand new understanding or approach of the Spiritual dimension, an alternative spiritual science, to teach or lead others in their understanding of more of the whole, such as in Evolutionary Astrology.Mars in the 12th
Souls with Mars in the 12th house are driven to align themselves with some type of transcendental belief system in order to understand the whole of creation and to see and experience their unique selves as an extension of the Source. As an archetype, the 12th house represents the totality of life, so the Soul will feel to be pulling from all other accumulated desires and pooled into one. They intend to dissolve all barriers that prevent their merging of their individual power into the universal whole, which is why the world of imagination and film can so often be see as an avenue of expression, where no limits exist. Other areas of interest might be in the world of religion or spirituality where the study of timelessness, infinity and the unknown can be pursued. They will feel as if their are standing on the precipice, with the light of the known behind them, the abyss of the unknown in front of them, which can lead to an inner freeze, unable to move in either direction, where Souls commonly find ways to escape through various means to avoid these hard choices. However, with Mars in this position, the evolutionary pull will be instinctual and there may be greater courage to explore the unseen, because it is time. In some cases, these Souls can become powerful icons, negatively speaking or in the most positive sense of the word, depending on how this energy is directed, and have a larger than life aura. Through the power of belief of who they are and what they are driving, they have the ability to captivate the interest, imagination and support of mass consciousness. This can be seen with a political or spiritual leader, or a movie producer tapping into the minds and Souls of their audience via film. Because all Souls with a 12th house Mars are seeking ultimate meaning within the choices they make, their dreams and fantasies are given tremendous power.
