The Basics

Mars symbolizes our desires, our energy levels, and how we take action. If you have Mars in Pisces, you have a sensitive and intuitive approach to life. You are driven by your emotions and have a strong sense of empathy, often putting yourself in others' shoes and feeling their pain as if it were your own.

You have a creative and artistic nature, with a natural talent for expressing yourself through various mediums such as music, art, dance, or writing. Your energy is directed towards the spiritual and mystical realms, and you may have a fascination with the unseen or supernatural.

You are highly sensitive and may struggle with setting boundaries, as you have a tendency to absorb the emotions and energy of those around you. You may find yourself easily overwhelmed or drained by negative or chaotic environments.

You have a dreamy and idealistic nature, often envisioning a better world and seeking to make it a reality. However, you may struggle with indecisiveness and a lack of clarity, as you can be easily swayed by others' opinions or influenced by your own emotions.

Your idealism can also lead you to sacrifice your own needs and desires for the sake of others. You have a deep sense of compassion and may be drawn to helping professions such as counseling, social work, or healthcare.

However, your desire to escape from reality and avoid conflict can also lead to escapist tendencies such as addiction or avoidance. You may need to work on developing healthy coping mechanisms and setting boundaries to avoid becoming overwhelmed by your emotions.

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

In our AI model, Mars is considered a Malefic - everyone starts out with a (discordant) negative score and harmony points are added from this base configuration if applicable.  It is perfectly normal to have a negative score.

(As we age, we learn to deal with all of our discordant 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.

Two hearts intertwined


Mars in Pisces individuals tend to approach relationships with a strong desire for emotional connection and intimacy. You may be attracted to partners who are sensitive, compassionate, and share your spiritual or artistic interests. Your romantic idealism and intuitive nature can make you a caring and nurturing partner, but you may struggle with setting healthy boundaries and asserting your needs.

In relationships, you may need to learn how to balance your desire for emotional closeness with the need for personal space and independence. You may also need to develop stronger communication skills, as you can be prone to passive-aggressive behavior or avoiding confrontation.

Conflict can be difficult for you to handle, as you may feel overwhelmed by strong emotions or a desire to avoid conflict altogether. Learning healthy conflict resolution strategies can be beneficial for developing deeper and more fulfilling relationships.

You may be drawn to artistic or spiritual pursuits with your partner, and may enjoy sharing activities like meditation, yoga, or creative projects together. However, you may also need to ensure that you maintain a sense of individuality and avoid losing yourself in your partner's needs and desires.
