Mars: Stamina and Sex Drive
The planet Mars describes how you use energy in life. It also indicates your physical stamina and the nature of your sexual drive with a partner. Mars is also the expression of your desire for personal achievement.
Mars in Aries (dignified). You go after what you want. Your strong sex drive sometimes manifests selfishly, with little regard for the partner. Initiative and drive are highly developed, but due to haste and impulsiveness, there can be a tendency not to finish what you've started.
Mars in Taurus (detriment). You're not easily thwarted or discouraged by obstacles. Your sheer determination and strength of will are well-developed, but may not be used to the fullest. You prefer purposeful, practical action to achieve what you want. Your sexual nature is sensual, but can be somewhat passive. You find pleasure through your profession.
Mars in Gemini. Energy is expressed mentally, through a keen intellect and versatile mind. You tend to take on too many projects that scatter your energy. Your mental restlessness needs a creative outlet or otherwise you become argumentative. You enjoy travel, science, and law. This is good placement for writing.
Mars in Cancer (in fall). You take everything personally and find it difficult to be objective about issues that are important to you. Your sex drive is overshadowed by deep emotional needs.
Mars in Leo. Passion rules the expression of your energy. You possess good leadership ability, a fearless nature, and a determined will. You need to be appreciated for who you are and as a lover. Mechanical or musical skill may be indicated.
Financially, Mars in Leo signifies someone who is incredibly generous. If you're looking for someone who will come home with an unexpected gift or skip off on vacation with you at the drop of a hat, Mars in Leo is your partner.
Mars in Virgo. You express your energy through efficient, practical pursuits. You're an excellent worker, particularly if the work involves attention to detail. You apply your will quietly, with subtlety. Your sexual drive may be somewhat repressed, with the energy channeled into work. This is a good placement for work in medicine, healing, or writing.
Mars in Libra (detriment). You benefit through partnerships and express your energy best with and through other people. This placement of Mars is good for a lawyer or surgeon. Marriage may happen later in life. Your children may be gifted. You're a romantic when it comes to sex.
Mars in Scorpio (dignified). Your drive and ambition are legendary. It's difficult and sometimes downright impossible for you to compromise. Secrecy surrounds your personal projects. You make a formidable enemy and ally. Your sex drive is powerful.
Mars in Sagittarius. You have the courage to act on your convictions. This is good placement for orators, crusaders, evangelists, and New Age leaders. You have a passionate sex drive but are often impulsive and noncommittal in your relationships. It's a good sign for competitive sports, travel, and adventure.
Mars in Capricorn (exalted). Your worldly ambitions may take you into public life. You're able to plan well and to work practically to realize your ambitions and goals. You tend to keep a tight rein on your sex drive and may get involved with people who are older than you are.
Mars in Aquarius. Your unique approach may brand you as an eccentric. You act independently to achieve your goals, which are often directed toward humanity in general. Your approach to sex is apt to be rather unemotional.
Mars in Pisces. This placement can go one of two ways. You're either inconsistent in what you seek to achieve or you're able to pull together various facets of a project and make them work. Sex drive is intimately linked with emotions. This is excellent placement for a detective or occult investigator. You try to avoid conflict and confrontations.
