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.
You are down to earth, and when you crave drama, you buy tickets to a play, not to a relationship. Logical, and disciplined, you probably have a knack of weeding out all the fluff and annoyance of needless pomp and circumstance. If your Mars is in Virgo, you most definitely will not be an emotional game player. You have an enthusiasm that cannot be matched when you've found a worthy cause. Your efforts are tireless, and you possess great mental skills that enable you to focus and therefore excel at whatever you do. You may be restless and need constant activity or thought to satiate your mind. Lovers may not compare to the ideal, but you are more than willing to expend some of your energy understanding the details of a real relationship! You offer support to your lovers and are happiest when others' intentions are made clear.
