Mars Interpretation

Hello all,

I've been studying astrology for a little while and during my course of study i have been continuously stumped by the meaning of mars in my chart. I get that the general idea of mars has to do with our actions and how we go about getting the things we want but i have as of yet to get a concrete meaning of how mars behaves in the 8th. I am also aware that charts have to be considered as a whole and not just based on one placement or aspect. To make a long story longer, can anyone give me a breakdown of my mars placement as well as the aspects that affect it, including the notorious Saturn square that has decided to grace my chart?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Mars Interpretation

Look up Mars in the 9th house. With that placement, the mercury-mars conjunction (with Mercury ruling the intercepted 9th house) and a yod pointing to the Sun in 9th (with this Sun ruling the Mercury-Mars conjunction) - I think a lot of things will start to click for you. You crusader, you.

Re: Mars Interpretation

No, you didn't miss anything since Mars falls in the 8th house technically. However, a convention developed whereby a planet within 5 degrees of the next house cusp is said to be read as being in that house. This convention developed because it seemed to have validity in chart interpretation.

And also, there are some of the opinion that is cusp of a house is its strongest point, so anything that falls near to the degree would be very relevant to the outcomes of said house.

In Whole-sign Houses, it's in the 9th.

Re: Mars Interpretation

Several planets are stronger than Mars in this chart.

Let's put Mars in context by analysing the whole chart, see how he fits into the scheme of things.

First, the whole pattern of the map: it features 2/3 of the heavens filled rather evenly (from Leo anticlockwise around to Aries), with 1/3 empty. This pattern is known as the Locomotive due to its resemblance to the drive wheel of the old steam engine. It is characterized by a sense of drving or being driven. Practical accomplishment is very important (which, by the by, is what Mars is about). The leading planet in your case is Venus, who is therefore in High Focus; her influence leads you into experience (into life) and permeates the entire being (chart). Whatever meanings and interpretations Venus carries are of first importance.

The entire chart is formed around the grand trine in Fire; 5 planets are in Fire, a preponderance. Also, there is a t-square in Fixed signs, with Pluto in Point Focus, and promoted by that fact; a second important planet. So the chart (the character) displays a Fixed Fire overtone -- Leo. Leo is found in the 8th, holding Venus, Mercury and Mars...the most planets held in any sign and house; 8th house emphasis (don't forget, the leading planet is here, and 8th-related (by nature) Pluto-Scorpio is in point focus.... In this chart, then, the 8th is where rubber meets the road. We find that Venus participates in both the Fiery and the Fixed formations, building her power in the chart.

Note that Venus and Mars are both in Leo and the 8th. These two planets rule the parental axis and both are strongly afflicted from the 11th-Scorpio. Mars-Saturn are less than 2į square, with Mercury partile square...serious tensions with the father. And Sun square Uranus as well; Sun has acquired added importance because he is lord of the emphasized Leo/8th complex. Study Mars square Saturn carefully...very potent in your makeup.

.

there is mess and confusion in the area of the so-called "houses"

because

there are at least twenty or thirty different house systems
or means of dividing the so-called "birthchart"
into twelve segments of life activity.

In astrology, houses, mansions, or domains
represent general areas of life activity
and are the grounding areas or arenas of expression for planets.
Originally, the words "houses" and "signs" were interchangeable
and so
a planet in the SIGN of Aries was also a planet in the HOUSE of Aries
so that in effect. there were no real houses as we know them today

HOWEVER
DUE TO THE MULTIPLICITY OF HOUSE SYSTEMS TODAY
the house location of a planet may change
DEPENDENT ON THE HOUSE SYSTEM CHOSEN


for example
For Whole Sign House system the ASCENDANT SIGN BECOMES THE WHOLE FIRST HOUSE
and the other houses follow.
so then For Whole Sign
the ASCENDANT POINT ITSELF can then fall anywhere in the first house
and
MIDHEAVEN POINT anywhere in the upper half of the chart.

Placidus is simply the default
ASTROSEEK offers WHOLE SIGN HOUSES calculation at https://horoscopes.astro-seek.com/traditional-astrology

The Whole Sign House system was used by the ancient Greeks
and the Hindus (who still use it today).
It is the oldest and simplest house system in existence
and
immediately eliminates the awful mess astrologers have made on the issue
over the last 1300 years or so


Artificial divisions now known as houses
were attempts by early Greeks and Hindus to measure strength "points" in the horoscope
which during 7th and 8th centuriesAD were construed or confused
as means of dividing the birth chart.
The ascendant and midheaven degrees and their opposites, for example,
were definite power points or areas of intense focus
but not necessarily the beginnings of a house or quadrant.

"STRENGTH"/"powerlessness" relative to natal planets
is dependent on a natal planets ability to act
planets that are STRONGLY PLACED have ability to act
but
UNLESS a strongly placed planet
has SUFFICIENT RESOURCES
then
that planet cannot do much - even if strongly placed


HOW PLANETS ARE ASSESSED AS being STRONGLY PLACED OR NOT
https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...23&postcount=6


House placement of a planet affects it's ability to act
a planet with no ability to act is aka powerless
sometimes another planet helps out by providing resources
but
only if that other planet has sufficient resources of its own


ESSENTIAL DIGNITY determines whether a planet has sufficient resources to act

also keep in mind that
ANGULAR PLANETS are strongly PLACED for the ability to act
but
UNLESS any strongly placed planet
has SUFFICIENT RESOURCES with which to act
then
that planet cannot do much - even if strongly placed

when your natal chart shows several strongly placed angular planets
in order to obtain a clearer perspective
consider creating your chart using WHOLE SIGN HOUSES
because Placidus is simply the default

With what you made mention in your reply to david starling, I hope you will take the time to consider what is being said by different persons, and not be intimidated or grow impatient by the information dump.

Interesting that after considering all the information provided
david starling himself changed and began using WHOLE SIGN houses

previously david starling used Placidus

therefore

do consider ALL the information
provided by ALL THE RESPONSES
and do not be intimidated by astrologers disagreements with each other
often newcomers to astrology are unaware of these disagreements
so it is important to CONSIDER ALL ASTROLOGICAL OPINIONS

Re: Mars Interpretation

True. Most don't realize that astrological circles are much more divided in techniques and philosophies. It can look like a monolith from the outside, especially if it is thought that skepticism and doubt comes only from the "skeptics".

Exactly - important to consider ALL available information
and
ALL perspectives are welcomed on our General Astrology board threads
i.e.
whether or not a member is using Vedic astrology
Chinese astrology, Western Sidereal Astrology

Modernist Astrology, Traditional Astrology
or their own personal astrological ideas
any member
may comment using ANY astrological methodology on GENERAL boards


our forum ALSO hosts SEPARATE BOARDS as well
for those members requiring a focus on a particular astrological methodology
i.e.
for example
our MODERN BOARD completely excludes traditional astrological comment
and
our TRADITIONAL BOARD completely excludes Modernist astrological comment

our VEDIC board excludes ALL EXCEPT VEDIC interpretation
and so on

I try both Placidus and Whole-sign, and then see which works best. In my own case, it's definitely Whole-sign.

I credit dr.farr for highlighting WHOLE SIGNS for all of us members

dr. farr has practised astrology for more than fifty years
and is a member of our forum
but has not posted for some time
however

fortunately, dr. farrs excellent detailed explanations of how WHOLE SIGN works
remain on threads on our forum
for any beginners to study

for example
dr. farr on a thread at
explains in detail the original meaning of the word "cusp"
and how that relates to the correct use of WHOLE SIGN

Quote:
Originally Posted by dr. farr View Post




Cusps:


Today (and for the past thousand years or so) we define cusps as "borders" (coasts), but that is not the original meaning of the word "cusp": it means "point" such as cuspal teeth (bicuspids) and the point of a sword

- so originally the term cusp meant the "point" of something, and in astrology originally the "cusp" of the house meant its "point";

now, when quadrant systems were developed, this "point" of the house came to mean its "beginning", which later came to mean its "border", ie, the "border" between one house and the other.

And later astrology also began using these "borders" (cusps) for various prognostic applications (Charles Carter came to believe that, for timing of events, the "cusps" of the Campanus house system gave the best results, among the various quadrant house systems)

But now notice this: in whole sign the cusps are NOT the 0 degree "borders" of sign/houses at all, and never were so regarded!

In whole sign, the "cusp" retained its original meaning, not as a "border" but rather as A POINT

-and that POINT (cusp) for EACH house, was the sensitive point of that house, viz, the sensitive point in whole sign houses-each house-that is the "cusp" of each house-is a direct projection from the ascending degree.

Example:
-the ascending degree of a chart is 18 Taurus: what are the house cusps (sensitive points, original meaning of the word "cusp") in the whole sign houses of this chart?
Cusp of 1st house = 18 Taurus
Cusp of 2nd house = 18 Gemini
Cusp of 3rd house = 18 Cancer
Cusp of 4th house = 18 Leo
Cusp of 5th house = 18 Virgo
Cusp of 6th house = 18 Libra
Cusp of 7th house = 18 Scorpio
Cusp of 8th house = 18 Sagittarius
Cusp of 9th house = 18 Capricorn
Cusp of 10th house = 18 Aquarius
Cusp of 11th house = 18 Pisces
Cusp of 12th house = 18 Aries

Now it is these "cusps" (sensitive degrees, original meaning of the word "cusp" as a "point") that are (and were) used for progressions, timing of events, etc, and the fact is that they work for these purposes, quite well (in expert hands)

Whole sign does not use the BORDERS between houses
always 0 degree of any sign
for anything
but it DOES use "cusps"
points in the house, projected from the exact ascending degree
for timing
and other delineative purposes.

Whole sign suddenly vanished (both in the West and in Vedic astrology) during the same period of time-ie, late 8th to early 9th century - this sudden disappearance suggests a sudden turn in astrological thinking and practices, rather than a gradual supplanting of a less effective traditional method (whole sign) by a new and more effective method (rheotrius/alchabitius in the West, and the closely related to whole sign Equal house, in Vedic astrology)

For me, there is only 1 reason I switched to whole sign-it worked better (FOR ME)

I could care less if it were the oldest house system (which it is) or whether it was invented by Badda Bing at Barney's Beanery in Bayonne, 10 years ago: only things I consider are:
-does it seem to make sense?
-does it "taste good" to me (ie, does it "feel right" to me)
-and, if yes to the above, does it work (producing delineations and predicitions) better than what I have previously been doing?

Well, whole sign did all that, for me, so I switched; but I am not going to try to convince anyone of anything about it, except for beginners-to you who might just be starting out, I would say: try whole sign first, and see how well it might work for you...

Ok i thought this might come up at some point. i do see a lot of people using different house systems and i actually did draw up a chat using whole house. my issue with whole house vs placidus is that the shift in placements dont fit the life experiences that i have had. i will give two examples:

1) The sign of aries and the moon are shifted to my 5th house while pisces is placed in the 4th. From my own childhoold experiences, nothing about pisces describes that portion of my life. In addition to that, every piece of information i could find about moon in aries fits my relationship with my mother. Moving the moon and aries to the 5th house in my chart dont really describe attitudes and events related to my life.

2) Scorpio , saturn, and pluto are moved to the 12th house. Saturn being in my 11th house describes my life when it comes to how i interact with others. I tend keep to myself (yes i can be vocal and entertaining if the need is called for but quiet is my default.), I watch people for long periods of time before i even think about considering them as friends. At the same time i also seek to maintain a certain leverage over people. This is more so for "just in case you betray me" purposes. if i use whole sign then none of the new placements fit my experiences in life.

Those are just two things that are immediately visible from using whole house vs placidus and there are may more that i can attest to as well. I chose to stick with placidus because all of the descriptions that i have read about my placements fit that house system. That doesnt mean that im not open to other interpretations or at least hearing how things may be different but i havent found anything that would make change my mind as of yet.

I will reiterate that i am still new at this and that there may be nuances that i have yet to see or discover. But until i come across that information i must go by what relates more to my life experiences.

If Venus is having such a large influence, does that give her more power over the chart ruler? Which I assume is JupiterÖ or is this only pertaining to this single portion of the chart?

Since Venus and mars are in the same house and sign, does that mean they want the same things?
I have indeed seen that have a grand trine as well as a kite. I have no idea what role they play. I read that trines are supposed to make things easier with the areas of life they touch but I canít find any specifics for my own chart. Even with all that being said, mars isnít a part of that trine.

With the mars Saturn square indicating issues with the father, can that be interpreted as any father figure or dominant parental figure?
You mentioned that the mars Saturn square is very potent in my makeup and I agree. I have read every piece of literature about it that I could find. There doesnít seem to be any in-depth information about it. While I do learn new things about it from reading, Iím always left with more questions. Can you or anyone else elaborate more on this?



Since there seems to be a some who are more inclined to whole house. would it be possible for you ladies and gentleman to provide an interpretation of what mars means in each house as it relates to my chart.?

Thanks all

You did it right. If Placidus fits your current life-path best, use it. Whole-sign fits mine much better than Placidus. I believe it's possible to change paths later in life, regardless of the best House system for your childhood, though.

Mars in Leo gives you catalytic ability in the field of alternative energy. But Saturn is interfering. The yod plus Leo being ruled by the Sun looks like it's about solar power, since the Sun is where it's pointing.

The short answer is that your natal chart is a Day Chart
because sun is above horizon
and
Sun is the sect leader of this chart
Saturn and Jupiter are of the diurnal sect
Saturn and Jupiter are the Sun’s co-sectarians.
"It's a good thing" for any planet that is of the sect in favor

If a planet is not of the sect in favor
then
it is the wrong time of day for the planet.
and it's the wrong time of day for your natal MARS
because
Venus and Mars are not of the sect in favor in DAY charts.
FURTHERMORE

The diurnal planets are happier
if they are above the horizon in a day chart
and below it in a night chart.
Likewise, the nocturnal planets are happier
if they are above the horizon in a night chart
and below it in a day chart.
This is not really a condition of sect
—it does not define sect in any way.
This is only a way to further determine the strength
or mood of any particular planet.
And it’s only adding or subtracting mildly from the planet.
thus
with reference to this particular natal chart
your natal MARS being not of the sect in favor
as well as being above the horizon in a Day chart
is not happy

Smile Re: Mars Interpretation

Planets have moods? Or is it about the mood of the native in the area of life ruled by a particular Planet? Well, at least the Sun can't be above the horizon in a Night-chart!
