The Basics

In Astrology, Mars represents action, energy, and drive. It symbolizes passion, assertiveness, energy, courage, motivation, aggression, willpower, determination, and the physical vitality necessary for taking decisive action.

The Seventh House represents "Partnerships and Relationships." It signifies marriage, business partnerships, close relationships, and how we relate to others.

If you have Mars in the 7th House, you possess an energetic and passionate approach to partnerships and relationships. You bring a dynamic and assertive energy to your interactions with others. You likely have a tendency to take the lead in relationships and be the driving force behind important decisions or initiatives within the partnership. 

Your strong will and drive for personal freedom may lead you to seek partners who are equally strong-willed and can match your energy.

You approach relationships with passion and intensity, and you thrive in partnerships that are exciting, dynamic, and intellectually stimulating. Your partner needs to challenge you, help you initiate projects, and perhaps compete with you. 

While you value your independence, it's important to find a balance between assertiveness and compromise in your relationships. Learning to collaborate and consider the needs of your partner will lead to more harmonious connections.

With Mars in the Seventh House, your mission is to learn how to cooperate with others. You are highly independent, work towards having your own way, and you must develop gentleness and diplomacy in order to avoid rubbing people the wrong way.  

There may be strife and friction in marriage as a result of the partner's hasty temper, intemperance, extravagance, brashness, intolerance, over-demanding attitude, or violence.

In order to get the best results from marriage and partnership, you should try to be as cooperative and easy-going as possible, practicing gentleness and diplomacy rather than allowing any overly assertive or quarrelsome tendencies to gain the upper hand.

*Look at your Cosmodyne scores to see whether your Mars is Harmonious or Discordant.

While everyone has good and bad days, your Cosmodynes reveal where you lean toward on average.

(As we age, we learn to deal with all of our placements, and hopefully, we evolve into more harmonious beings than our Natal charts suggest.)

Transits to your Mars, especially from the outer planets, can greatly affect its expression as well.
