This article is going to focus on the Mars sign specifically and break things down for those who wish to learn more about themselves. This sign shows us what our most basic selves are and where our instincts truly stem from. 

In regards to Mars and its influence Indastro’s website wrote as follows:

Every planet in the cosmic realm governs a particular aspect of our personality or life in general. Your Sun sign reflects how you present yourself to the world and what makes you feel powerful. Your Moon sign gives insight into your inner persona, what’s your emotional makeup. Your Mercury Sign tells how you ponder, process, express and share information. Mars, like all these controls specific aspects of your life. The sign that Mars is transiting through at the time of your birth is called the Mars Sign.

Mars is a red-hot masculine planet. It is raw energy, unlike Sun. Its placement in a sign tells how you physically respond to things, whether it’s sports or sex. Do you love aggressive physically demanding sports or fun team sports? Are you short-tempered or slow burn? What’s your approach to sex, sensual or sexual? Knowing Mars Sign is another effective astrological method to know more about yourself or someone else.

If Sun is confidence, Mars is courage. If Venus is romance, Mars is sex. Mars makes you competitive, strong, adventurous, risk-taking, energetic, ambitious, sexual, impulsive, assertive and aggressive. Your Mars sign gives a picture of your basic desires, animal instincts. Mars is the planet of action. The way you approach your goals comes under the realm of Mars. Your will to take risks and combat challenges also belongs to Mars.

Mars is your immediate response or action in a given situation. For example, someone with Mars in Aries is likely to react in an impulsive way without thinking much but that won’t be the case for someone with Mars in Taurus or Mars in Libra. Whether your approach would be passive or aggressive can be determined through your Mars Sign. Someone with Mars in Leo or Mars in Aries would likely react impulsively and aggressively like fire; however, someone with Mars in Scorpio would certainly respond in a calculated way.
