In contrast to Venus, who is his opposite, Mars seeks the extremes in life, the adversities and divisions. He is responsible for the elimination of life, but also for its preservation. Mars drives us on to derive satisfaction from the experience of subjugating the inner and outer world, and to subdue or eliminate that which threatens the preservation of our life. Mars proves to us the type and strength of our desires. Mars in a woman’s horoscope shows the type of masculinity that she finds most attractive. If Mars is in Aries, then she likes Aries men; if Taurus, then Taurus men, and so on. In a man’s horoscope, it describes best his image of himself. Men with strong Mars signs are strong and active. When Mars has a strong place in Aries and Scorpio, he delivers all levels of energy.
