The Basics

Mars symbolizes our desires, our energy levels, and how we take action. If your Mars is in Libra, you have a diplomatic and cooperative approach to situations, valuing harmony and balance in all areas of your life, striving to create mutually beneficial relationships with others.

You are socially conscious and relationship-focused, prioritizing the needs and desires of others over your own at times. You are an idealistic person and believe that everyone deserves fairness and justice in all areas of life. You have a strong sense of ethics and morals and seek to uphold these values in your personal and professional relationships.

You have a natural ability to see both sides of a situation, and you while you excel at finding solutions that benefit everyone involved, your desire for harmony can also lead to indecisiveness and people-pleasing behavior. You may struggle with making decisions that could potentially upset others, even if it's necessary for your own well-being.

You are creative and artistic, with a strategic approach to problem-solving. You enjoy exploring new ideas and perspectives, and you appreciate beauty and aesthetics in all forms. Your Mars in Libra placement makes you an excellent mediator, as you have a natural ability to diffuse even the most divisive  and intense situations and find common ground. 

You likely have an intellectual curiosity and enjoy engaging in thoughtful discussions on a variety of topics. While you are not inherently competitive, you may find yourself drawn to mental sparring with those who exhibit a mature or open-minded approach to the subject at hand.


*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


If you have Mars in Libra, you are someone who values harmony and balance in relationships. You have a natural sense of fairness and a desire to create peaceful and cooperative partnerships. You are charming, diplomatic, and gracious in your approach to love and romance.

You are skilled at navigating conflicts and finding solutions that work for everyone involved. You are willing to compromise and make sacrifices for the sake of the relationship, but you also expect your partner to meet you halfway and contribute to the partnership equally.

In conflict situations, you may struggle with assertiveness and may avoid confrontation altogether, which can lead to passive-aggressive behavior or resentment. It is important for you to learn how to express your needs and boundaries clearly and assertively, while also being receptive to your partner's needs and opinions.
