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 Sixth House represents "Work, Health, and Service."  It signifies our daily routines, work environment, health, service to others, and attention to detail.

If you have Mars in the 6th House, you possess an energetic and ambitious approach to work, health, and service. You have a strong drive to be productive and make a significant impact in your daily life.

You approach your work with determination and assertiveness. Your ambitious nature pushes you to take on challenges and strive for success in your professional endeavors.

Your energy extends to your health and well-being, as you are health-conscious and proactive in maintaining a strong physical condition. You may engage in regular exercise or fitness activities to channel your energetic nature.

You are detail-oriented and have a keen eye for perfection. Your assertive nature drives you to pay attention to every aspect of your work, ensuring high standards and efficiency.

Your competitive spirit thrives in the workplace, and you strive to excel and outperform others. You enjoy taking on challenges and are motivated by achieving recognition and success in your professional pursuits.

Service to others is an important aspect of your life. You actively seek opportunities to contribute and make a difference, using your energetic and assertive nature to assist and support those in need.

In your work environment, you bring a sense of energy and productivity. You thrive in dynamic and challenging situations, taking the lead and inspiring others with your ambitious and disciplined approach.

*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.
