The planet Mars is the fourth planet of our solar system, and in astrological terms it represents the God of War. It is a masculine planet and rules both Aries and Scorpio, as well as the 1st and 8th Houses. The way your Mars sign manifests itself in your chart is the clearest indicator of your passions and how you take action. Your Mars sign represents action, passion, drive, determination and spirit -- imagine it as the adrenaline in your body. Mars has a strong influence over your sex life. It is an impulsive, daring and dynamic energy in your chart, and most clearly expresses what kind of sex you enjoy. Your Mars sign defines what you desire, how you express that desire and how you satisfy it; it is therefore known as the Passion Sign.
If you have Mars in Cancer, you may just be one of the few who are able to truly act out how you feel. Emotional, passionate and creative, you can direct your energies in ways that nurture yourself and others. You are in tune with yourself, which provides you with the knowledge of what pleases you in life. This makes for a sensual romantic partner. You are also sensitive to the needs of the people around you, and willingly succeed in fulfilling them. Your memory is sharp and clear, and you are able to expend great energy in seeing something through to its end. Your endeavors are enriched by great imagination, but make sure you use it to your advantage. You offer emotional security to your lovers and are happiest when surrounded by an expressive partner.
