The Basics

Mars symbolizes our desires, our energy levels, and how we take action. If you have Mars in Aquarius, you have an unconventional and progressive approach to life. You are driven by your ideals and a desire for social justice, often standing up for the underdog and championing causes that promote equality and freedom.

You are an independent thinker, and value your freedom and individuality. You are not afraid to be different or to challenge the status quo. Your energy is directed towards the future, and you have a natural affinity for all things innovative, technological and cutting-edge.

You are a natural problem solver, able to use your analytical skills to find solutions to complex issues. You have a keen intuition, and are able to think outside the box to come up with creative solutions. Your unique perspective can be an asset in fields such as science, engineering, and technology.

You can be detached and unemotional, preferring to focus on facts and logic rather than emotions. You may struggle with expressing your feelings and connecting with others on an emotional level. You may also appear unpredictable and eccentric to others, as you are unafraid to challenge convention and embrace your individuality.

Your rebellious streak can make you resistant to authority and tradition. You may find it challenging to conform to rules and regulations that you see as outdated or restrictive. You are highly intelligent and innovative, but can also be impatient and impulsive when pursuing your goals.

*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.

If you have Mars in Aquarius, you approach relationships with a strong desire for intellectual stimulation and emotional freedom. You value partners who share your progressive and unconventional views, and may be drawn to people from diverse cultural backgrounds or with unique perspectives.

You are not afraid to challenge traditional relationship norms and may seek out alternative relationship styles such as polyamory or open relationships. However, you may struggle with emotional intimacy and may prefer to keep a degree of distance in your relationships, prioritizing intellectual connection over emotional closeness.

In conflict situations, you may be argumentative and stubborn, refusing to back down from your beliefs or compromise your principles. It is important for you to learn how to listen to your partner's needs and opinions, while also staying true to your own values and beliefs.
