Mars in Astrology: Meaning and Significations

Mars in Astrology: Meaning and Significations

Episode 318 features a discussion with astrologer Sylvi Osland about what Mars means in astrology, where we talk about the significations of the planet and especially what it means in a birth chart.

Mars is generally said to signify things like action, impulsiveness, forcefulness, assertiveness, fighting, anger, war, severing, separation, inflammation, intercourse, fires, discord, robbery, and courage.

This is the fifth episode in our series on the planets in astrology, where we do a deep dive into the meaning of each of the planets, by reading through some passages from ancient and modern astrologers to anchor the discussion.

The passages we read through this time included astrologers such as Porphyry of Tyre, Vettius Valens, Abu Ma’shar, William Lilly, Reinhold Ebertin, Steven Forrest, and Richard Tarnas.

  • The ascendant sign and planets there, in my experience, can tell us something about the quality of the birth process. Two of my daughters have Pluto ascending, another has Neptune …very different vibes in the birthing room!
    My great grand-daughter has Mars on Ascendant – had a difficult forceps birth and her mother lost ‘lots of blood’. Shortly after she was born, I had a client with MAr ascendant. When I asked her if she knew anything about her birth process she told me her mother had lost a lot of blood.
