Mars is the fire in us. It is our will to follow what we believe. It is that part of us that can get the job done. It is that part of us that can follow our instincts. Mars gives us courage, drive, initiative, good logic and the ability to engineer and build things. A good Mars makes you a good leader. If it is agitated one might not have full use of Mars energy. This can lead to being frustrated, angry and impatient and when way off, violent.
