If you don’t understand much about zodiac signs and you are new to planetary signs, aspects, and houses, read the introduction here.
Mars is the planet of war, aggression, drive, assertion, energy, force, the sex drive, and male sexuality. He represents how we express our passionate natures and how we obtain anything we desire. Mars also represents drive, energy, and freedom. Mars is instinctive about survival. It can also represent frustration and aggression. Mars wants us to compete, to fight, and to climb over obstacles in life. He wants to accomplish something and be independent. He thrives on the rush of the moment. Really, he just wants to release some tension.
The sign he enters shows HOW we express our passion and drive. The house he enters shows WHERE we express our passion and drive. The aspects show how difficult or easy it is to use his energies in our life and how much of it we use.
Ever heard of the saying “Men are from Mars, women are from Venus”?
In a man’s chart, Mars is his ruler. This is more of a socialized condition than anything. We have all of these planets in our charts and are capable of using anything for survival. But in our society, men tend to connect more with Mars than women do. Even though women are more active today, women still shy from most of the principles of Mars and women still expect men to be more active and driven than they are. Thus, Mars tends to tell men a lot about their own status as “men” and their identities in relation to their peers. Mars is considered one of the social planets, though not quite as sociable as Venus.
Mars also reveals what men expect out of their relationships and his own sexuality, which is mostly what I’m going to discuss in this article.
Why are men so associated with Martian sexuality (and not women)? Mars is supposed to be the planet that represents sex directly. But since women are more encouraged to channel their yearnings into romance, the actual act is far less important for them. Men, on the other hand, are taught something different. The article 5 Lies that Distort Male Sexuality by Jamie Utt and Men’s Sexual Response by David Delvin expresses that men are often taught to see sex as something for their own pleasure “rather than their partner’s”. Men are often encouraged to see sex as a conquest and to have as many partners as they can. Thus, relationships are seen more as a game or a battlefield. Their role is to try to be the conqueror. This is very similar to the principles associated with Mars.
Men are taught they have to be “in control” sexually. Men feel pushed to be adequate sexually. As a result, men are likely to take sexual risks to build their experience and confidence, regardless of the consequences. They are not shamed for exploring their sexuality to the fullest. On the other hand, a man who can’t have sex for whatever reason will feel a heavy burden. He will feel more pressure to perform and others will make him feel like a loser. Men will more than likely feel “unhappy with their partners” and “disaffected with life” if their partners are not having sex with them. A man will also usually feel “desolate” if the object of his affections reject his sexual advances.
Mars can be a very powerful planet for men, blessing them with freedom, strength, energy, and leadership abilities. But Mars can curse them with rivals and enemies, competition, aggression, violence, tension, and loneliness.
Readers may remember my article regarding men and Venus.
Why Does He See in YOU? by the signs
Venus and Mars are two relationship planets in our charts. For most men, Venus is projected onto women. He may often expect women to express qualities he himself doesn’t feel “allowed” to express. Men with Mars in his ruling signs (Aries or Scorpio) or in his exalted placement (Capricorn) have a harder time living up to the principles of Venus and will project their energies more. Men with Mars in detriment (Taurus or Libra) and his falling placement (Cancer) have an easier time with Venus and don’t project as much.
In a man’s chart, Venus represents his feminine ideal, a woman he is drawn to and attracted to. This is the woman he thinks is sexy, good, and perfect.
So if men project Venus on women, how can Mars influence what they expect from women? This is a tricky question and yet simple at the same time. Though men are drawn to certain women because of feminine energies, they still feel they deserve to be catered to by even the most passive woman. Quite frankly, men aren’t so soft. A softer woman would have trouble keeping up with his sex drive, wouldn’t understand his activities, and wouldn’t have the energy to make themselves useful in his life. Venus is superficial. Sometimes, Mars helps us see beyond the superficial and understand what people do and how people really behave.
Women can benefit from reading this article. This article is useful for women who have a hard time understanding the male mind and may feel confused when dating a man. They may notice that though a man may say he is attracted to her and would often talk about how special she is, he may expect her to treat him the total opposite! So, women may find men difficult to please in this way. Well, women, worry no more! If you look into his natal chart and observe his signs, aspects, and house placements, you will understand him better.
Because men project Venus, this can create some conflict with Mars, especially if there are harsh aspects between the two planets. A good example of this complicated love life would be shown through Michael Jackson’s music. He has Venus in Leo with his Mars in Taurus. Having Venus in Leo, it’s clear he was drawn to dynamic women in his lifetime. Many of the women he was drawn to (as well as those drawn to him) wanted to be a “star”, much like the sun-ruled Leo! In songs like “Dirty Diana” and “Billie Jean”, he mentions women wanting “fortune and fame”, seeking him out just to get media attention. Though he may later dislike these women, he’s initially drawn to them allowing them into his life in the first place. So why does he dislike her later? When thinking about this question, we first have to observe how he sees himself. In music videos like “The Way You Make Me Feel” and “Bad”, we can tell that he’s really a peaceful guy like his fixed earthy Mars in Taurus suggests. He’s actually really affectionate and artistic. He doesn’t seem himself as aggressive. He’s more easy-going and pleasant. MJ would rather use his music to impress a girl rather than any bold or assertive tactics. He’s really a loyal, stable man who hates drama! The problem is he keeps attracting drama to himself!
For MJ, the “drama girl” is him projecting his own “dramatic nature”. He’s only perceiving these women as dramatic. But we can never truly know what’s going inside of a person. We aren’t them. Each person has their own natal charts that may reveal things we may not even expect from a person. The woman he perceives as dramatic and attention seeking may see herself as someone else entirely and may just be reacting to him! Inside, he’s the one being drawn to the fame, attention, and drama. It’s his internal “Drama King” that has led him to people that bring drama to his life. This is probably why he’s the “King of Pop” in the first place!
In a gay man’s chart, he tends to balance both his masculine and feminine energies well in a relationship, considering he may not feel the need to be the dominant one or the submissive one. He may even use both energies interchangeably. Still, he may feel pressure to conform, like all the other men. Society will make him feel out-of-place if he’s not like other men. He may also feel he has to defend himself more, causing him to express more assertive and strong-willed tendencies. He may not project his Venus on a potential partner, but he may end up projecting Venus on women in general or on close female friends.
In a woman’s chart, Mars tends to reflect the qualities she would rather project on men and reveals her idea of the “ideal” man.

Mars in Aries
Male Identity: Mars first enters his own domain when he enters the sign of Aries. Aries is a cardinal fire sign. Here he is at his best, free to be as forceful and assertive as he would like to be. He can get the most accomplished here.
The men with this position often express traditional masculine qualities quite easily without even trying. It’s so natural for these men to live up to the standard that men should be leaders, should be assertive, and should be active. These are their basic personality qualities! Even if these men don’t feel very masculine, they still feel it is important for a man to believe in himself and keep a sense of independence. They often can’t help but be the alpha man in any group they go into. They are the ones coming up with all the ideas. They are the ones putting plans into quick action. If they aren’t the ones in charge, they will bump heads with whoever is or leave that group. Of course, they often need a side-kick to handle the details and to keep things going long-term, otherwise they tend to get bored, looking for some excitement or starting some trouble.
These men are confident. They can do anything they put their minds to. They are usually full of energy and ready to take on the next big challenge in their lives.
They are so original in thought and action, they are usually found starting new businesses or being the first to get involved with a new business venture. They are unafraid of the unknown. They take risks, and it usually pays off for them. They may like jobs with some sort of risk factor involved, like firefighting, military, or criminal justice.
However, they should be careful when taking physical risks. These men like physical challenges, including sports. Though they may like any sports, they mostly like sports they can play independently. They don’t like watching sports as it bores them to sit still too long. Most of these men enjoy extreme sports (like skateboarding, snowboarding, and biking), Martial Arts, Olympic sports (like swimming or track and field), and/or other sports that allow them to use their energies to the fullest, independently, and in a competitive environment. These men may also like aggressive sports like wrestling, boxing, football, and/or hockey. The only problem these men might have with hockey, basketball, and football would be working on a team. These men tend to be ball hogs, impatient, and a little too cocky when playing with teams. When they lose, they tend to blame others for the loss, causing fights. They may even jump from team to team until they find the “perfect” team that actually WINS. They have no patience for losers. Some of them have a hard time seeing their own mistakes. With their love of speed, they may be interested in races of all kinds.
This website is good for understanding Mars in Aries in sports: Sports & Mars
These men tend to be athletic and physically fit, but they may have a few accidents because they push themselves too hard and they move head-first into things (with their feet tumbling under them).
Even if they are not athletic or physically active, they really need an outlet for their energy, otherwise they will be irritable or causing trouble just to release some tension and ease boredom. Some of these men may get involved in creative activities if they don’t like sports too much. They may be in a band, touring around. They may get interested into carpentry or electrical work. Regardless, it has to keep them busy and motivated.
They can have bad tempers that flare up and disappear. They tend to make a scene when angry and be passionate about that anger. If someone is angry with them and confronts them, this just makes them angrier! They tend to be impulsive and jump to conclusions.
They need to be careful of getting involved in illegal activities just for the rush. These men see themselves as living a hectic, adventurous life. They may say they’re tired, but they wouldn’t have it any other way! Their drive for “rush” could easily be channeled into taking legal risks, like riding a roller-coaster that has just opened for the first time or traveling to an adventurous destination. These men like to take up dares and like to dare others. There’s nothing wrong with this, as long as they learn the art of moderation. Trying to tell a Mars in Aries man this is the biggest challenge.
These men are headstrong. They don’t like being told what to do or how to do it. They hate rules and obstacles. Even though they tend to fit the social standards of masculinity, they really don’t like conforming to social standards. These men want the freedom to do whatever it is they want. If they want to cook or garden, they want to do it and they won’t let anyone make them feel shame about it! They challenge any system that seeks to control them. Of course, we have to live in a world with other people. So, these men always feel like they have to fight to be respected and to do whatever they want to do. In fact, for them, life always seems like a fight. Some of this is because they’re always picking a fight! They just can’t be “normal” and end up shaking up the system without trying to.
Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Aries and how they fight and argue.
These men are generally brave. Even when they are afraid, they face their fears courageously. They don’t like to be intimidated.
Friends find them to be fun, exciting, and energetic, but also independent and aggressive. Partners may find them to be highly independent, too.
These guys only honor and respect another man’s independence. But when it comes to anything else, they will overstep another man’s boundaries to get what they want. They challenge other men.
These men always have a young boy inside of them. They love playing around, playing video games, and playing sports no matter how old they are. Their youthful natures rub off on their bodies. They never seem to get old!
Relationships: With such a headstrong, independent, and assertive nature, the biggest challenge in their lives is merging with others. Finding love is an even greater challenge. Regardless of their Venus sign, these men really need a partner that can keep up with their active lifestyle. They also need someone who can pick up and move around, try new things, and make things light and fun because they tend to be out-going and tend to be involved in new things, both in their career and in their personal lives. They can drain partners dry or leave partners in the dust. These men often want love, but they need to be able to do what they want, when they want to. Their headstrong nature makes them difficult to reason with. It’s hard for them to accommodate and sacrifice things they desire for others. People may think they are selfish, but they are actually just really ambitious and easily irritated when settled. They know themselves and know what they need. They need to keep moving. These men need a relationship without a whole lot of baggage tying them down. If a partner is the baggage, they will drop the relationship and not even bat an eye about it. They don’t have patience to really sit and talk about feelings. They have a playful streak and they need a partner that can have fun. They can’t deal with partners that are too mature or too fussy (even if their Venus sign suggests they attracted to mature individuals). They DO NOT like being told what to do. They won’t take it from anyone, not even their partners. If they are bossed around, it’s sure to set off a war. They hate being judged and they hate being controlled. If you want to avoid their aggressive side, it’s best not to provoke the Ram. Partners will end up “bumping heads” with them often. No matter how much they may want a stable relationship, with a loyal partner, these men need some thrill in their lives. They often tend to like the rush of going after partners and trying to get that person to date them. But when the flames mellow out, they often itch for some excitement. They may suddenly seem to get bored. These men must be careful of cheating. They also need to be careful of constantly finding themselves in poor situations with people they hardly know, just for the rush of it all. These men need a lot of independence, even if they do end up with women who keep them busy. They need their own hobbies, friends, and career. They don’t like being with partners that have the same career. They feel a little threatened when they feel dependent on others, too. This makes them grouchy. They will often only look for partners that make less or an equal amount. They can be really competitive in this way. On the other hand, some may not care, as long as they get to enjoy what they like to do. As independent as they are, they will do anything for someone they love. They tend to be self-motivated, so they work hard. They take care of their partners well.
This man constantly feels a spark between himself and Mars, the planet of action, desire, and aggression. Mars is exciting and thrilling to this man. Mars comes right at him and makes him feel invigorated. At the same time, Mars is always getting this man into trouble. Power struggles often occur in this relationship. Mars can irritate him, yet he keeps coming back for more excitement! Maybe this man just likes the rush of it all. Mars has a way of provoking the fire out of him, for better or worse.
These men approach love interests confidently or in a straight-forward way. They just tend to come right out with it. They will do anything it takes to get what they want. They will be persistent and they love the challenge. If they are rejected, they may be a little moody and resentful for a minute, but they quickly get over it. Or they may wait (impatiently) until you come around.
When going on dates, these men tend to prefer to do something fun. They can’t stand sitting down all night at a restaurant. They need to at least get up and dance. They often offer to take potential partners to amusement parks or clubs. They may invite them to ride in their car or on their motorcycle. They may also like an adventurous hike up the mountains or horse-back riding on the beach. Whatever it is, it will be exciting. They like to show off how brave they are. It’s hard for them to admit when they’re scared. They aren’t really the most chivalrous men. They often forget to use their manners and they can be honest to a fault. They have a “first come, first served” mentality. They love independence, to be able to open their own doors and pull out their own chairs. They often forget that others don’t really feel the same way.
They may feel that all men want to be able to do what they want to do without anyone criticizing them. They may feel that all men hate being bossed around. They may think most men hate talking about their feelings and most men hate having to open doors and pull out chairs just to please dates. They may think all men are active and that all men have a youthful streak about them. They would be shocked to discover that there are men out here who don’t feel the same.
Male Sexuality: These men see sex like they do their usual lives. They often see sex as something under their control and they have sex when they want to. Their need to act upon it depends on their desires. When they are turned on, it happens fast. They tend to have a need to satisfy that desire right then and there. Otherwise, they will feel really frustrated. Some of them see sex as a conquest or a game. Many may like the excitement of having as many sexual encounters as possible.
Despite their quick urges when the fire is ignited, they don’t need sex all the time. They are quite independent from the act. They usually don’t get addicted or obsessed with one partner. Once they have sex, they move on. They don’t form emotional attachments; they just see it as an outlet for their burning desires and unsettled energy. Other energies in the chart have to keep them attached to their partners.
They are quick in the bedroom. Once they are turned on, they get it out quickly, passionately, skipping the foreplay. They do not take their time and they can be a little aggressive about it. They often forget to take the time to please their partners. If they do remember, they are active participants in the act. They still may be the dominant one without even trying. They are super sure of their actions and confident that they can please. Still, they love the rush of being around a partner who is equally as passionate. If you want them to respect your sexuality, you have to dominate them and show some sexual confidence.
If you like a man who is assertive, independent, active, and fun, you will love these men. If you need close intimacy, some time to relax, need stability, and want a mature relationship, this isn’t the man for you. If you have a lot of aspects to Mars or Mars in the 1st house, you may relate to this description. Mars rules over Aries. Any planets or house cusp placements in Aries or Scorpio will be affected by this position.

Mars in Taurus
Male Identity: Mars enters the domain of Venus, his opposite planet, when he moves into Taurus. Taurus is a fixed earth sign. Mars doesn’t feel very comfortable here. Mars is in detriment. Taurus is an easy-going energy. Mars is active and assertive. Taurus takes its time and finishes things on its own time. Mars wants everything done now. Venus is the planet of beauty and charm. Taurus lends the men with this placement attractive qualities. Mars would rather impress others with its actions.
Just because Mars isn’t comfortable here doesn’t mean these men aren’t masculine. In fact, the men with this placement see masculinity in the context of the traditional. These men believe a real man is physically strong, makes money, has lovers, and has a steady life. They feel that men should always have something to own. Their fathers and/or other men they admire have a strong influence on them. They tend to model themselves after the people they admire. They tend to have a fixed way of viewing masculinity, too. They can be possessive of even their ideas, not wanting these ideas to be changed by anyone. This is a threat to their masculinity.
The issue is that Mars in Taurus men have a fragile masculinity because they are often too concerned about coming off “feminine”. They have such a strict code regarding masculinity, they often have a hard time breaking the “masculine” rules. The funny part is they often break these standards without trying. It’s hard to live up to social standards in every way and these men have an inner soft side. This could make them uncomfortable in their own skin. They want to be seen as tough and strong, like they perceive men are supposed to be, yet they also want to appreciate the beauty around them. The problem is they care too much about how they will be seen by others. In this way, they won’t take up any dare or chart their own destinies for fear of losing their masculine security. This makes them seem like they have a fragile masculinity that is threatened by anything. They have a strong sense of ownership. They define masculinity on their own terms and don’t want anyone taking that away from them.
The men with this placement are usually charming, attractive, and down-to-earth. They are best described as laid-back. They are usually slow to anger and reasonable. They tend to have a way with women. Even if they aren’t interested in women, they know how to attract the right people to them. They may have quite a few female friends.
These men are about the material things. Even if they don’t have a lot of money, they tend to judge others’ worth by how much money or material things they have. They can be very superficial and physical. Many of them have a passion and desire for material things. They feel threatened around people who make more money or anyone who looks better. Some may equally reject money for a more natural life, loving farming and the outdoors. Some of these men could be the rugged types.
These men love to indulge in pleasures. They are often caught up in food, drink, and other finer things (they must be careful of getting involved with alcohol and drugs). They tend to be artistic in some way. They could be interested in music, painting, sketching, sculpting, or any other creative outlets. They appreciate beauty and they like to fully experience and enjoy it. They tend to care a little more about their appearance in comparison to other men. Even if they don’t, they have a specific style. They may enjoy one brand or style over other brands or styles.
These men are practical. They work hard for what they want. They like stability and understand how important security is. Unfortunately, they do have a lazy streak. They prefer jobs where they can be creative and have plenty of time to relax and take it easy. They like to take their time and they patiently go after whatever it is they want. Results may not be immediate, but they know they will get what they want in time. They are rooted in their jobs, too. They prefer jobs that can last a long time and help them pay the bills. They also need to be able to get the material things they want. They really hate working under others. They hate to be pushed around and working according to other people’s schedules. If anyone approaches them, a soft, charming approach is better than an aggressive approach. Fortunately, they don’t get angry easily. Don’t think this means they are easy to push around. Keep pushing him, and the raging Bull will emerge. And that side is hard to calm down! These men can hold a lasting grudge if angered. Still, they are more than likely to give the cold shoulder before they get into a physical fight. The problem is that these men let their anger build up inside. When it finally does spill over, it’s uncontrollable!
When it comes to sports, they tend to enjoy sports that help them show off their physical strength. They may like wrestling and boxing. They can be good at any sports, really, because they have a lot of staying power. If they love a sport enough, they can do it for a living. However, they are likely to choose sports that are considered “normal” like basketball, baseball, or football. No matter what sport they choose, they aren’t necessarily the competitive types. They play for the fun of it. They hate to play sports with people who get too caught up in the game. They certainly don’t want anyone blaming them for anything going wrong in the game. They tend to only like sports they are really good at, so they are not likely to face that problem often. They are good at any physical training. However, they do need time to relax, even from sports. They may enjoy watching sports more than playing them.

These men, again, are slow to anger. They are only likely to get angry when anyone challenges their sense of ownership. This sense of ownership could be taking their money away, their home, or even their lover. It could be making them feel like less of a man. It could be embarrassing them in front of friends or family members. It can be insulting their race, culture, or country. Whatever the case, they want the ultimate respect. They have a “tribe” sort of mentality. They can be fiercely protective of the things and people they love. If people are angry with them, however, they will avoid confrontation at all cost.
Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Taurus and how they fight and argue.
It can be challenging to respect them at times. They are very opinionated. They are also stubborn and have a hard time admitting when they are wrong. They tend to be really shallow in their thinking. They do have a lot of common sense, though. It’s just their thinking on matters never float beyond the surface.
These men are strong, sometimes even physically. They can endure a lot. When they channel their energies, they are determined to get whatever it is they want accomplished. Because of their charm and strength, they are capable of conquering empires. They make some of the world’s most notorious leaders. They are good at making others feel at ease in a crisis and good at building up those who are weak. They are rock solid.
Around their fellow male peers, they are generally the strong, silent types. They tend to be the leaders, being the glue that holds their friends together. They can be a little conceited and stuck in their ways. Other men may find them to be oily or too focused on their possessions and/or talents. At the same time, many of their fellow peers find them to be real and authentic. They seem to understand what it takes to be a “real” man and they seem to get all the ladies, so men respect and admire them. Partners may find them to be charming and laid-back, but difficult to move or shake.
If they really want something or someone, they will try their hardest to get what they want. However, they try to avoid open competition. So they will attempt to get what they want in a smoother way. Mostly, they like to have their own things rather than receiving left-overs.
Relationships: Due to their steady nature, these men tend to like steady relationships. They usually want something that lasts. They don’t jump into things too quickly, but once they do, they expect their partners to stay with them forever. This doesn’t mean they don’t cheat. They have an appreciation for beauty. If they feel their partners aren’t pleasing them physically, they may search for this pleasure in others. It’s also hard for them to resist others’ charms. However, these men are less likely to want to put up with the drama and the consequences. They may try to keep both partners away from one another, trying to avoid the changes that could occur. They should be careful of this. Drama is sure to follow.
These men generally want a relationship that is relaxing and chilled. They need their partners to be patient with them. They don’t like to be bossed around. They are stubborn. They hate to be moved when they don’t want to. They tend to get comfortable in relationships easily and may take lovers for granted after awhile. This isn’t intentional. They just want to indulge in the pleasure of the moment and they often forget to give as much as they receive. They aren’t fans of change. They like a steady routine and they want to come home to a warm meal and clean, comfortable sheets. They also need pleasure in their relationships. They want partners who will cater to them. They like everything to go their way. If they do something nice for their partners, it will be when they want to do it, not when their partners want them to do it.
This man always seems to feel a spark between himself and Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and art. Venus is so charming and attractive, this man can’t help but feel the heat. Her feminine wiles drive him mad with lust! Venus is not only beautiful, but loving and peaceful. She shows an appreciation for everything, and this excites him. Of course, to be around such a soft creature, this man has to soften his approach to matters and refine his own nature. She doesn’t share the same depth or sense of excitement he has after all.
When approaching potential lovers, these men tend to take their time. Sometimes, they wait until the person comes up to them. They may like someone for a long time before they ask them out. When they finally do, they use their charms, good looks, and money to woo others. They may like to show off their talents or their possessions. These men may like to sing a song or recite poetry. They may be down-right romantic when pursuing someone. They are smooth. They are also persistent and use the same method over and over until the person breaks. They don’t take rejection well. It tends to make them fall hard. Once someone rejects them, that person will not get another chance.
When taking someone on a date, they tend to like a place that is both romantic, peaceful, and pleasing. They may like to take their dates to a jazz club or to a restaurant that plays tasteful music. They may like to go to or have outdoor barbecues or have a picnic. They may cook at home or order a lavish dinner and invite someone over to their place. They will allow their partners to choose whatever they want on the menu. If they don’t have a lot of money, they will more than likely make lunch or dinner. They may find a place that’s less expensive but still really tasty. These men may like to go to museums (on a quiet day), art galleries, or to large parks. Whatever place they choose, it will be chilled and romantic. They certainly know how to make their partners feel comfortable. They use their good old-fashioned manners. They are usually soft-spoken when around someone they like. They tend to treat partners gently and they are always calm. They never cause a scene when trying to impress someone, so partners can count on them to behave.
Again, these men have a traditional view of masculinity. They believe it’s the man’s job to pay for everything. They believe men are supposed to be strong, both physically and inside. They believe all men are the same and all men want the same things. They believe all men hate to be pushed around and like to chill and do relaxing activities, like watching the game on T.V. It would make them uncomfortable to meet men who think differently from them. In fact, they would find those men strange.
Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a pleasurable activity. They can only do it when relaxed. At the same time, if they are too relaxed, they may not want to do it at all. They are slow to build their passion and energy. They need a lot of physical stimulation. They take their time, enjoying every moment with their partners. They prefer sexual partners that take their time pleasing them in every way. They are patient lovers.
They need to have sex with a partner they are attracted to. It’s hard enough for them to build their passions. It’s even more challenging when their partners are unappealing. They need someone who puts some effort into turning them on. They tend to be very physical.

Mars in Gemini
Male Identity: When Mars enters Gemini, he’s entering the domain owned by Mercury. There are many things Mars has in common with Gemini, and some things he’s not so comfortable with. Gemini is a mutable air sign. Gemini is a busy, busy energy. Mars likes to keep busy. But Gemini is so scattered it lacks focus. Mars likes to accomplish things and likes to focus on one thing at a time. Mars is very direct.
The men with this placement carry a certain boyishness forever with them. They are talkative, playful, sporty, and love to play pranks. They are quite mischievous. They are clever and witty. They notice everything. These guys are social creatures. They don’t like spending time at home alone. They would rather be out, getting into something.
The men with this placement can be of two types (being a Gemini and all). They can be super smart, loving to read and express their opinions and thoughts or they can have a hard time sitting still long enough to read and engage in a decent conversation. These types are easily distracted by everything going on around them. When bored, they get tired. They must be careful of nervousness and headaches due to absorbing too much around them. These guys can be very superficial. They live such a scattered lifestyle they often don’t have time to develop themselves and reflect on the deeper things within. They are thinkers, but they mostly focus on trivia or little tidbits.
Men with this placement can work at many different jobs. They can work two jobs at once. They have a lot of skills and they learn quickly. They mostly like jobs that keep them busy. They only care about money in the way they can use money to explore all there is to explore in life. But they aren’t really materialistic.
They might be interested in all kinds of games. They may love chess, board games, or video games. They are interested in PC games and apps, too. They often have the latest technology, if they can afford it. If they can’t, they will find a way to try something new. They have plenty of connections. They aren’t shy and easily talk to people.
If they are interested in sports, they usually like to play sports that help them make use of both their physical and mental energies. They tend to like soccer/football, baseball, hockey, basketball, and American football. They really love to play. But they never take sports seriously. These men are capable of coming up with their own sports games if they wanted to. They are so resourceful and versatile. They can take a football and make it into something else entirely. These guys are so active, they can make a game out of anything. They tend to be physically thin and athletic-looking as a result of their changeable energy. They may also be interested in sports sponsored by the community. They will side with their local teams before any international teams. They don’t often have the patience to sit and watch sports unless they are watching it with others.

These men have an open-minded view of masculinity. It really depends on their social group (and it depends on who you’re asking). If they are around macho guys, they will develop a macho attitude. They tend to want to fit in and maintain a certain neutral social status. If they are around more open-minded guys, they will be, too. No matter what side they take, they are really curious about everything. If they could have it their way (and not have to worry about losing their social groups), they would try everything. And I mean everything. They are not against trying make-up, cooking, and/or hair-styling. They still may love women. Still, these men want the freedom to experience everything at least once. They can be very impressionable as a result. It’s easy to convince them to try anything. They must be careful of peer pressure to get involved in drugs and alcohol. Those things don’t always make a person cool and it can have lasting damaging effects on the body. These men love to party and club. But deep down, they’re kind of geeky or nerdy. They could own a motorcycle and love rock music, then turn around and love comic books and Disney movies.
These men don’t get angry easily. They would rather laugh things off than get too serious. Still, you’ll know when you’ve rubbed them the wrong way. They have a sharp tongue and can find some unheard of curse words, too. The only thing that makes them angry is when someone constantly picks with them and constantly talks about them to others. They can tolerate a lot, but they will blow up eventually. If someone is angry with them, they will try to talk their way out of the confrontation or manipulate the situation in their favor.
Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Gemini and how they fight and argue.
Around their fellow male peers, they are fun, wiry, talkative, and hilariously funny. They can equally be annoying, mischievous, and immature. Peers may also find them to be two-faced. It’s not that they are, but they can easily adapt into any crowd. They like being around all kinds of people. Partners may find them to be fun and humorous, but a little fickle and unpredictable.
As far as respecting another man’s boundaries, this also depends on who you’re asking. Again, they want to maintain their social connections, but they want to try everything. They are likely to overstep someone else’s boundaries and lie about it or never tell anyone about it. They’re good at telling lies. They know how to keep a straight face and use the right body language. They always have shifty eyes, so it would be hard to tell just by looking at their eyes. The funny part is, as much as they lie, they really hate liars.
Relationships: These versatile men tend to want to experience everything they can in a relationship. This often makes it difficult to tie them down to one relationship. They are always curious and itching to try something new. Often these men think it’s impossible not to cheat, but really it’s all in their minds. They are a mental sign after all. They are so influenced by others, they let society influence their thinking. These men often watch or hear about men cheating. Since it’s so glamorized, these men itch to try it. With the right mental readjustment, they can begin to see the versatility within one partner. Of course, it would be easier if they could find a partner who equally likes to change things up all the time. If they can find several people in ONE person, they will be happy in a steady relationship.
This man constantly feels a spark between himself and Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and reason. Mercury is constantly talking, learning, and moving, so this man’s relationship with him is never boring! Of course, things move so fast for them, they can hardly take the time to fully enjoy their relationship. In fact, at the end of it all, they feel a complete hang-over, both mental and physical exhaustion. But hey, if you’re going to live, why not live fully?
These men approach love interests in a “now you see me, now you don’t” kind of way. They come around their love interests at social gatherings, use their mental game (i.e. flirting), and try to get into that person’s mind. They can be a little coarse in what they say. But they are adaptable. If one method doesn’t work, they will try a new approach. They must be careful of lying just to impress someone. They are better off showing off their clever wit and intelligence. People love men who make them laugh. Mars in Geminis are experts at lightening the mood! They are charming and friendly. They must remember these qualities work better than lying. They don’t take rejection as hard as other men, especially if they have someone else they’re interested in. Even if they’re not interested in someone else, they leave and then come back again! They may even suggest that they at least be friends with the person they’re interested in. Still, they hate to be embarrassed in front of their friends. If it’s easier for their friends to get dates, and they constantly get rejected, they will be moody and depressed. Sometimes, these men joke around to hide their pain. They really must handle these feelings. Otherwise, their feelings will turn from sadness to resentment, then anger, then outright aggression.
When going on dates, they tend to like to try a combination of things all at once. Partners should be prepared to use all of their energy. They like to go to places that are both fun and interesting. They may like going to cultural festivals, clubs, amusement parks, or even museums. Sometimes, they may try to do all of this at once! Fortunately, they are adaptable. If they see that their partners aren’t having fun or maybe having too much fun, they will drop any plans they had and go with whatever their partners want. Still, if they were to ask you out, their partners had better wear some sensible shoes just in case. The Mars in Gemini guys floats between the perfect gentleman and the mischievous rude boy. They may open doors and pull out chairs. Then, somewhere throughout the date, they may play pranks and tease their dates. This, of course, depends on how comfortable they are with their dates. If they are just getting to know their dates, they will be more polite. They are socially-aware. If they know their dates well, expect the unexpected.
These men tend to think all men cheat. They tend to feel that all men want freedom and want to try new things all the time. They probably think all men have the same interests and are all more curious than women. They may even think men are more open-minded than women. They may be surprised that other men have different views regarding masculinity.
Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a fun activity. Again, they like to try new things. Sex is on their bucket lists and they want to try everything regarding the subject. They really need a partner that’s just as open and experimental as they are. If they can’t explore everything to the fullest with one partner, they will find ways to get what they want somewhere else. It’s a sure reason for them to cheat. They may find other ways to experience various sexual activities through porn or through various partners.
Of course, sex is mostly a mental thing for these guys. They don’t really need a physical person to experience sex. They would do well with virtual sex or even “sexting”. They can also easily divert their attention from sex by focusing on something else until a later date. Once turned on, though, they may want it quickly.
These men are easily influenced by other men’s ideas of sex. They are even more influenced by the men around them, like their friends or family members. If their friends are exploring sex, they will want to as well. They will feel more rejection if they can’t explore what they think other men are exploring. They will feel like they are missing out on life.
If you love a man who is fun, smart, flirty, and adaptable, you will love these guys. If you dislike talking and need stability, he may not be the one for you. If you have Mercury aspecting Mars or Mars in the 3rd house, you may relate to this description. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, so your Mercury sign will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Mercury sign within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Gemini, Mercury in Cancer, you can read Mars in Cancer to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Aries or Scorpio will be affected by this planet.

Mars in Cancer
Male Identity: When Mars enters Cancer, he enters the sign ruled by the Moon. Mars falls in this sign. Cancer is a cardinal water sign. The Moon is the planet of emotions, most associated with women in general, the mother, the “motherland”, and our early home environment or our roots. Mars is a masculine planet, associated with independence, which separates him from his roots. These men often feel a pull. They want to be close to their families, to keep traditions strong, but they also want to be independent and be seen as their own man.
These men have two conflicting views regarding masculinity. They both have a traditional and non-traditional view of masculinity. They often have traditional views when comparing themselves to women and children. Like their fathers and grandfathers, they believe it is the man’s job to protect their families, provide security for their families, and make their fathers proud of them. They often feel like their masculinity is decided by these factors. On the other hand, as individuals, they have interests that the world may not be ready to consider “masculine”. For instance, these men may be interested in domestic activities such as cooking and gardening. These men may prefer creative jobs (like music, designing cartoons, or painting) instead of an office job (though they may settle to maintain security). They may be extremely close to their mothers. In fact, they may even deeply admire their mothers! These men are also more in touch with their emotions. Society isn’t ready for men to enter into this kind of world. Thus, these men often feel weaker than other men or bullied by other men for being “different”. These men have to learn to accept themselves and trust their instincts. They really are ahead of the world. They have to learn to be comfortable with that. These men still have people who admire them, even if they don’t realize it. They seem genuine and they express themselves well. They tend to relate to the “average guy”. They understand men on an intuitive level, a level rarely reached by other men. They have the ability to get in touch with the masses, which can help them in any career they get into.
These men may have insecurities with feeling weaker than other men. In order to feel stronger, some of these men may abuse those they feel are weaker just so they can feel stronger. They may try to place strict codes between men and women, fearing female domination. They are also really sensitive. They do have to be careful of women controlling or abusing them, but they should be careful they aren’t getting too paranoid.
They tend to be really protective of their families and friends. If anyone messes with the ones they love, they will get angry. They are uncontrollable when angered. Their emotions get so involved, they take it out on anyone around them. Since showing emotions are shunned by men, these men channel it into physical aggression. They are instinctive in a fight. On the other hand, some will let others bully them only to later get back at that person in a round-about fashion.
As much as they love their families, sometimes they can’t get along with them either. Their fathers tend to be hard on them or causing commotion within the home. They often fight and argue with female relatives due to differences. Domestic violence may be common in their households. Their mothers may be the dominant figures in the home and may try to make them feel “less than”.
Just don’t hit them too personally. If you can avoid the things they are touchy about, you will avoid their tempers. They also absolutely HATE betrayal and disloyalty. Some will give you the cold shoulder, others will confront you. It all depends on their mood.
Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Cancers and how they fight and argue.
Generally, though, these men are quiet and sweet. Most of them keep to themselves and enjoy doing activities within the home. They tend to be “book smart” and often spend a lot of time reading. They tend to have educated opinions. They may enjoy carpentry, as they love building things. It makes them feel “manly”. They are good when it comes to fixing things around the house.
They instinctively think about the needs of others. They often do things for others without really thinking about it. When their friends or family members need them most, they are there.
When it comes to sports, they can be extremely athletic or uninterested. It all depends on how they were raised. If their families taught them to love sports, they tend to be interested in the sports of their homeland. They may feel a sense of “family” with sports teams. They may have a love of soccer/football, American football, baseball, basketball, rugby, or other sports that remind them of where they come from.

Again, they love creative jobs, but they also like the medical professions and psychology. They may also be interested in criminal justice because they like protecting others.They may love teaching because they do well with children.
Around male peers, they tend to be quiet loners. If they have close friends, they will be understanding, supportive, and like another brother. On the other hand, friends may find them to be too sensitive and easy to anger. Partners will find them protective and sweet, but a little complex and hard to read.
They tend to respect others’ boundaries. They do not steal what they feel is another man’s. If they really want what someone else has, they will try to persuade the other party to see things their way. If they are unsuccessful, they will leave the situation where it is. They may find a “backyard” method as well, avoiding conflict.
Relationships: They may not admit it, but they get super attached in relationships. Mars intensifies their emotions. These men need loyal partners. They need a partner that they can trust. They usually pour everything out for their partners. If they even sense disloyalty, they are not the nicest people to be around. Usually, they are protective, generous, and caring. If they feel their partners have changed towards them, they get threatened. When these men get threatened, they get angry. They want a relationship where they feel a connection with their partners. They like to have a lot in common with partners because they like to do things together. They may seem a little clingy and smothering. They are overprotective sometimes. They are just trying to do what they feel they are supposed to do. You can tell them to ease up, just say it nicely. They may attract strong partners because they like to feel secure with someone, but they equally hate being dominated. They don’t like being pushed around. It would be best to feel like an equal in their relationships to avoid arguing and fighting.
These men constantly feel a spark between themselves and the Moon, the luminary associated with emotions, instincts, and habits. They can’t quite define their relationship with her. It’s tumultuous and dramatic, at the same time, familiar and secure. Their feelings reach a stronger height than ever before, making them feel an indescribable rush and a passionate desire. Yet, they feel out of control and out of touch with reality when with her. They know this relationship is rocky, yet they feel a certain chemistry with the Moon. Perhaps they love the roller-coaster ride.
When approaching someone they like, they have a difficult time. They are shy and they have a boy-next-door appeal. They tend to try an indirect approach. They may send the person they like sweet little gifts, like flowers. It will be signed “anonymous”. It will be difficult for others to decipher their feelings at first. The more intuitive souls will know it’s them immediately. They try to keep it hidden as best they can until the person recognizes them. Of course, they can be moody when they like someone, especially if that person has yet to notice them. They may try to get the person alone so that they can talk with them. They must remember to always be themselves and have a little more confidence. They have a lot to offer, just like any other man.
When taking someone out on a date, they tend to like a nice, quiet, and intimate setting. They may invite the person over to come to their house for dinner. They may take their dates to a nice, cozy restaurant, perhaps the family restaurant. They may pack a picnic basket and have a picnic in the park. They may take their dates to a cultural festival, enjoying the sights and foods that represent their nation. They may just ask where their dates would like to go. They can be quite the romantics. They can be chivalrous when around their partners. They will be protective, too. They are the types to give their jackets to partners that are cold or spoon feed their partners at the table. They walk on the side of the street that is the muddiest. They will even carry their partners if they are tired!
They believe all men want respect. They tend to believe that all men should think and feel as they do. They tend to encourage men to support other men and build each other up. Of course, they also recognize that all men are different from one another. They recognize how unique they are and wouldn’t be surprised to find men who are different from them.
Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a way to unleash their passions, desires, feelings, or to build their self-esteem. Regardless, they get super involved with their partners sexually. When they are in love with someone, sex usually follows. They may be attached to their partners after a sexual encounter. They feel they have given of themselves during the act. If they have many sexual partners, they may feel this way with all of them! However, it would be difficult for them to accept any of these partners cheating on them. They should be careful giving their hearts away to too many partners. They can’t have them all.
On the other hand, some of these men can be absolutely loyal sexually. They are even more loyal when children are in the picture. Some tend to like the idea of getting a woman pregnant and starting a family. They must be careful of spreading their seed too far and wide. It will break them eventually.
They tend to have sex when they feel the “emotions of the moment”. They don’t often stop and think. They are passionate lovers when they want someone. They can’t control themselves once turned on. It’s best for lovers not to be alone with them if they aren’t interested in sex. On the other hand, they want to please their partners and won’t be pushy too often. They may enjoy foreplay with their partners, but they are serious when they have sex. They can be both gentle and rough sexually, but they aren’t likely to be too taboo. They like all positions, but their favorite involves chest-to-chest contact.
If you love a man who is protective, caring, and security-oriented, you will love these men. If you can’t take too many emotions, not really a family girl, or want someone extremely confident, they may not be the man for you. If you have Moon aspecting Mars or Mars in the 4th house, you may relate to this description. Cancer is ruled by Moon, so your Moon sign will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Moon sign within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Cancer, Moon in Leo, you can read Mars in Leo to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Aries or Scorpio will be affected by this planet.

Mars in Leo
Male Identity: When Mars enters Leo, he enters the Sun’s domain. Mars’s own sign, Aries, is exalted when the Sun enters it. This shows that Mars has a lot in common with Leo. Leo is a fixed fire sign. Mars is a masculine planet and the Sun is considered a masculine planet. The Sun represents the father and manhood. Mars is the masculine principle. Yet, when two dominate forces combine, they are bound to bump heads eventually. Leo is all about “attention” and putting on a “show”. It wants lovers and admirers. It wants to be important. Mars is only concerned with accomplishing goals, overcoming obstacles, and getting what it wants. It’s a planet of action, not “displays” of action.
These men tend to be proud of their masculinity. They tend to put on a big show, flaunting themselves around as the alpha man in any group. They really do like to show off. Actually, they don’t really have to try. They are natural leaders in any room they go into. They carry a sense of confidence that is enviable. They tend to have a lot of personality, too. They can be funny, almost clownish. It is hard to ignore them.
They believe confidence is the key to being masculine. They believe the alpha man in any group is the man who is the most popular, the one who wears the best clothes, has the most money, and is extremely attractive. Basically, the man who stands out the most. When they meet men who best them in this way, they feel threatened and they get competitive. However, they will never show their weaknesses in public.
These men are destined for fame and attention. When they want it, they know how to channel their energies towards accomplishing great things. Their goal is to earn honor and respect. They want to be proud of whatever they do. They are often considered good role models as a result.
They have an inner child inside of themselves. They are playful and light-hearted. They also make great fathers because they tend to keep their kids motivated. They really want young boys to look up to them. They want to guide children in the right direction. They must be careful not to invest their ego too much in other people’s lives. They don’t want to try and take the shine from someone else. They should avoid being bossy and commanding.
They do well in jobs that help them express their unique natures. They may do well in politics and management positions because they like being in charge and they tend to be good at organizing events and people. They may do well in the fashion industry as they tend to make sure they wear the latest styles. They could be great as a sports coach or athlete. They would be great in entertainment. They always have an entrepreneur deep inside at all times. They are always trying to strike it rich and they can see the business opportunity in anything. They have a creative mind. Regardless, these men really strive to be the best in whatever field they get into. They are adventurous and enthusiastic when they get a business plan going.
They are really big kids at heart. They love sports of all kinds. Their problem is they may feel they have to be the star on every team. They have a hard time taking a backseat. The good part is they really strive to BE the best. When they are the captain or quarterback, they are good at motivating their team. They could outshine the cheerleaders! They enjoy watching sports, but they always have an idea of how they could’ve played better. They tend to support the “best” team rather than a team that has had consistent losses.

The less athletic guys may have many creative interests. They may be in a band in their spare time or they may enjoy planning house parties. They love to party. These guys are gregarious by nature. Their birthday parties tend to be a huge deal! They tend to have an adventurous life. They need to be careful of gambling and taking financial risks. They also should be careful of taking physical dares. This isn’t always bad. They should just make sure everything they try doesn’t bring physical damage to themselves.
These guys are generally positive and upbeat. But their tempers can be ferocious and dramatic (though their bark tends to be worse than their bite). A jab at their pride is sure to set them off. They don’t like to be humiliated. They hate to be told what to do in any way. They don’t even like when others get an authoritative tone. They have a hard time working under others as a result.

Around male peers, they tend to be loud, flamboyant, and confident. They almost seem invincible. Of course, drama seems to follow these guys. They seem really popular and jovial. They are always center stage. Male peers may equally find them to be arrogant, to be braggarts, or to be all talk and no show. Some may even find them annoying. Partners find them exciting, funny, and romantic, but maybe a little dramatic and self-centered.
They don’t like taking another man’s possessions or lovers. They have too much pride to have someone else’s leftovers. At the same time, they could learn to let others shine every once in a while.

He wants his relationships to be fun, passionate, and suited to all of his needs. In every instance, he has to be the center of attention in his relationships.

These men tend to want partners that are attentive, humble, submissive, and caring. They want to be treated like kings, with their partners feeding them and doing the hard work for them. If they are more like the humble lions, they tend to want to be the ones to take care of their partners and their families. Their pride won’t allow anyone to take over. They feel it’s the man’s responsibility to not only be the king, but run the kingdom. Most Mars in Leo men are loyal partners, but some take many partners to stroke their egos. They mostly need partners that make them look good in some way.
These men constantly feel a spark between themselves and the Sun, the luminary associated with the self, our main concerns, and vitality. When with the Sun, this man believes in himself. The Sun supports anything and everything he does, and this boosts his confidence. With the Sun around, these men feel invincible. His goals come first and take first priority. Maybe he seems a little self-centered, but he’s always full of life, thanks to the Sun’s warm support. The Sun is always on the same page. On the other hand, the Sun may take away all the shine in their attempt to support the man, which may cause some conflict and tension. As long as the Sun’s intentions are positive, this man will feel invigorated.
When approaching someone they like, they are usually either dramatic or romantic. They tend to pull out all of their game for the one they want. They are the types to announce their interest in public, in front of others. They will send dozens of roses, shed tons of money on gifts and expensive dinners, and will be there when the car breaks down or repairs need to be made. Some of them may expect to be appreciated for all that they do. If they are rejected, they will feel taken for granted. This is because they really do too much to win someone else’s heart. These gentlemen have to be reminded that it was their own choice to be elaborate, knowing they may not win in the end. They really don’t like losing, not even when trying to impress someone they like. They will really get bitter if they see that person with someone else. It really hurts their pride to be rejected. They are really sensitive deep down.
When going on a date, these men tend to like to have a lot of fun. Whatever they do and wherever they go will be amazing and unforgettable. They tend to take their partners to lavish, expensive restaurants. They may take their lovers to fancy operas or concerts of choice (with V.I.P passes). If they have less money, they will still try to make the night as special as they can. With their playful natures, they may enjoy the day at a fair or amusement park. They may play all the games just to win prizes for their dates. Whatever they do, they will add flair and drama to it. They want their partners to find them to be the most impressive suitor of all. They must remember not to splurge too much on their dates. They can be really chivalrous. They generally treat women with the ultimate respect when trying to impress them. Sometimes, they over-do it. Their problem is letting all discussions focus on themselves. They must try a little harder to pay attention to their partners and show some interest in them as people.
These men tend to feel all men should be the leader in a relationship. They may think all men want to be catered to and taken care of. They would be shocked to find men who think differently from them. They may still be stubborn about their ideas.
Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a part of making love and receiving pleasure in their relationships. They generally like to be the dominant partner. They love foreplay and creating an interesting scene in the bedroom. These men love the attention from their partners no matter what. Sex is just another way for them to shine. They tend to be playful and fun sexually.
They want their partners to think they are the best sex partners ever. They like to share information about their sexuality or their experiences with their friends. Some may care more about their own pleasure. Others may care what their partners want, making sure the overall experience is amazing for both parties. Whatever goes on in the bedroom, they want to make sure mostly positive things are said about the experience. They may be reluctant to jump in the bedroom with someone if they aren’t sure they can perform at their best.
If you love a man who has a lot of personality, someone fun and entertaining, playful and generous, you will love these men.

But Virgo is earthy, practical, and a little more cautious. Virgo is also scattered. Mars doesn’t hesitate to jump into things, regardless of the consequences. He’s also direct and focused.

These men seem so humble that other men often think they are easy targets and that they can be pushed around. These guys do have an “innocent” way about them. They have a strong moral code, a strong sense of righteousness, and they are generally good men. They just need to be careful of letting other boss them around and they need to learn to stand up for themselves.
They are funny, witty, and pay attention to all the details. This makes them seem a little oily. They are perfectionists who cater to every part of their appearance.

Whatever job they take on, they complete every task effortlessly or try their best to.
They may like any sports. Mostly, though, they’d rather watch sports than play them professionally. They aren’t the competitive types and they tend to be particular when getting down and “dirty”. Some of them have hidden health issues they are trying to overcome as well. But those that are really athletic enjoy solo sports that allow them to use their mental expertise. They may enjoy Olympic sports like racing. They may enjoy measuring distance and discovering clever ways of beating their opponents.

Around male peers, they are generally quiet and humble. They are funny and tend to get along with most guys they know. Some guys may find them to be a little critical and judgmental, but very few people have a bad word to say about these men. At least they are honest. Somewhat, they are loners, so they don’t really give people anything to talk about. Partners find them to be reliable, responsible, and dependable, but workaholics.
They tend to respect other men and their boundaries. They usually have no desire to overstep someone else’s grounds. They are too smart to walk into territory they don’t belong. If they do want what another man has, they use their brains and wait until that item (or person) is available.
Relationships: They tend to be family men. They make great boyfriends and husbands. They focus a lot on the details of their partners, making sure their partners are well-cared for. They are attentive and helpful. When a car needs to be fixed or their partners can’t find something important, they will be around to help. Of course, they can be a little critical of their partners. If their partners change up their routines, they can get really sharp. They also tend to point out little things that seem “out of place”, like a hair strand sticking up or untied shoelaces. It comes out as “too honest”. This may aggravate their partners. They also don’t spend a whole lot of time with their lovers. They are always so busy. It would be best for their partners to have “busy work” to do as well. First off, they respect others who work hard. Second, it will be the best way to ease loneliness. Working with them on a project might be a way to spend more time with them. Of course, they have to be in charge of the project because they are very specific about their ideas. It would be great to suggest that these men set aside some time to spend with loved ones. A lot of it could be shyness. They often want to be the perfect lovers and often don’t know the best way to show that without messing up. They really need a partner that is tolerant and easy-going to make them feel at ease. They don’t need demanding types.
This man constantly feels a spark between himself and Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and reason. The information this man receives from Mercury is useful and inspires practical action. This man may feel that life moves a little fast with Mercury, but Mercury has a lot to offer. This man can’t deny that a lot more gets done when he’s working together with Mercury, even if the projects don’t last very long. Being around someone so intelligent and reasonable really makes this man feel strong and motivated.
When approaching someone they like, they get a little nervous and shy. They usually try a simple approach. They start off with a pleasant greeting and then simply ask the person out somewhere. Some may give compliments. They usually make sure they are dressed well and they pull out their best manners. It’s best if they prepare ahead of time, though. When they get nervous, they may sweat a lot or stumble. Some are smoother than others. Others are attentive. These types observe the people they want long before approaching them. They often find the right words to say. They usually offer to help the person they like with something and move in from there. If they are rejected, they generally get really hard on themselves. They often have to know the reason for the rejection and will try to fix it for next time.
They usually like to take their dates wherever their dates want to go. Of course, if they could have it their way, the date would be simple and inexpensive. They generally want partners who aren’t extremely materialistic. They don’t necessarily feel that a man has to spend a lot of money to please someone. They would enjoy a nice walk in the park. Being an earth sign, they appreciate nature. A day at the Aquarium would be something they would suggest. It’s both interesting and soothing. They like to take their dates to quiet dinners in clean environments. They might even enjoy a day at a fair. Wherever they go, it will be perfect. It will be romantic, but not dramatic or cheesy. It will be nice but not super expensive. They are always well-mannered in public, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
These men may feel most men are laid-back but generally like their routines. They may feel most men dislike partners who are dramatic. They may be surprised to find that other men have their own ideas about masculinity.
Male Sexuality: These men view sex as something a man should understand. They see it as healthy and a good stress reliever. They take a lot of time and effort to perfect their skills. Of course, they may seem a little nervous or cautious about the act as a result. They always want to make sure they perform well, just like they do at work. They tend to be very good at making their partners feel comfortable. They are self-serving, getting more excited by their partners’ pleasure.
They are particular about who they have sex with. Again, they want it to be a healthy activity. They generally are more cautious with more experienced partners. They are careful with people who have had too many partners. The individual may be hot to him, but he has enough self-control to deny a partner sex if he feels the person is “unclean”. But they have a curious side and they love to learn. They may be more experimental than most earth signs.
If you love a man who is chilled and helpful, you will love them. If you need a lot of romance and you require a lot of attention, he may not be the one for you. If you have Mercury aspecting Mars or Mars in the 6th house, you may relate to this description. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, so your Mercury sign will alter your expression.

Mars in Libra
Male Identity: Mars enters another one of Venus’s signs, Libra-the cardinal air sign. Mars feels uncomfortable in this position. Mars is in detriment here. There are a lot of things about Libra that rubs Mars the wrong way. Though Libra is one of the extroverted, masculine signs, Libra is like Venus in the fact that it is passive-aggressive, balanced, and superficial. Mars has not time for indecision, moderation, and superficiality. Mars wants to come to quick decisions, go after whatever it wants with fierce intensity so that is can get what it wants faster, and doesn’t really care what anyone looks like while doing it. Libra cares about others; Mars is an independent energy. Libra baffles the planet Mars. Still, Libra is an energetic and positive placement, so Mars can have some fun along the way at times.
The men with this placement often don’t feel as tough or aggressive as other men. They tend to have a lot of energy for pleasurable activities, but they never put their foot forward too hard or too fast. Their idea of manhood tends to be contrary to society’s view of manhood. They feel that what makes them masculine is their cool, easy-going, and creative nature. They believe that masculinity is mental and that a real man is smart and good at negotiating. They mostly feel masculinity is a social thing rather than an instinctive, physical, or biological thing. They are logical and reasonable in the way they see masculinity. They can understand how masculinity can be defined in many different ways.
These men don’t see the need to be as competitive or boastful like other men. At the same time, they feel uncomfortable when they don’t fit in. They tend to either make themselves feel more unique or they over-emphasize their masculinity to overcompensate for their weaknesses. What’s most important is being attractive. They really want lovers in their lives and they strive to be respected by their partners.
These men are super intelligent and love to read. They generally love open discussions. However, they tend to get heated in conversations, turning them into debates or arguments. They always feel like they need the last word. If they are proven wrong, it angers and disappoints them. They can even get resentful. Though they generally hate arguing and fighting, they often start them without intending to.
They are actually really good leaders. They are good at bringing opposing parties together for one common goal because they aren’t too dominant, they are persuasive, and they are team-oriented. They are good at motivating others. This is because they are motivated by others.
They are generally better-suited to jobs where they can be creative and easily work with others on a team. They may enjoy the music field. They could be excellent painters and sculptors. They do well in politics and office jobs. They would make excellent lawyers because they are fierce debaters and are often determined to win in a conversation. They don’t do well in jobs that are hard or laborious unless they work with someone else. Any job they take on, they have to really love. Otherwise, they will be unmotivated and lazy.
They love sports, watching it and playing. They try not to take it too seriously, though. On the other hand, if they were to work at something they love, and if they loved sports, they may choose it as a career. They still don’t want their favorite hobbies to feel too much like a hard job. They generally do well on teams. American football, basketball, hockey, and soccer/football are all sports they do well with. They may love sports that take grace and intelligence like fencing. They may enjoy extreme sports or even Olympic sports because of the balance required. Though they would rather do something they love, their drive isn’t as strong. They may be indecisive, switching from sport to sport. They usually seem dispassionate about sports, even if they play it for a living.

If they aren’t interested in sports, they are definitely more creative. They also love to socialize and party. They love that life of luxury and ease. Their social life is very important to them. They get irritated and nervous when they are alone too long. They often have a hard time doing anything alone.
These guys are passive-aggressive. They get mad, but they never address it. They will wear a smile or keep a cool head even when angry. But they may find some under-handed way to get back at the person they are angry with. They may also manipulate other people to side with them. They are stronger in numbers. They can be superficial and judgmental, staying away from people who they deem as rude and inconsiderate. In fact, it makes them angry. It makes them angry when someone criticizes the way they look. It makes them irritated when people are loud and flamboyant. It frustrates them when others are unreasonable or difficult to talk to. They don’t often realize when they are guilty of being loud, unreasonable, and critical. They will physically fight if their strong sense of justice is attacked. They believe in fairness. They will fight for their loved ones as well. However, they hate fighting and being on another person’s bad side. They quickly “do the right thing” and apologize for their behavior (unless they strongly feel they were right). Some people may take this kindness as weak and fickle. They just don’t like holding a grudge. They really want to be well-liked. Sometimes, they often blame others for their own behavior rather than own up to their own anger. They hate to lose their cool.

They often spend a lot of time with their partners, getting frustrated when their partners are too independent. On the other hand, they are quite indecisive and often feel that things would be better if they were with “someone else”.

They should learn to decipher what it is they really want before they get into a relationship. Their social status is also important. They want partners that make them look good in some way. At the same time, they want partners that are better than they are (financially, physically, etc) or more dominant. They want balance in their lives.
These men always seem to feel a spark between themselves and Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and art. Nothing inspires them more than the lovely Venus! She’s graceful, charming, and a pleasure to be around. She’s so classy, refined, and cultured. These men can’t help but feel lust for her. Yet, if they want to keep her beauty and refined nature, they must show how much they appreciate her. This means they must calm their excitable nature and learn to relax-something really challenging when this man is around someone so alluring!

Mars in Scorpio
Male Identity: Mars traditionally rules over Scorpio. It’s not surprising. Both have intense and passionate energies. Scorpio is a fixed water sign. On the outside, Scorpio is a quiet energy.

They may also be interested in the entertainment industry, though they may prefer to be producers and song-writers, working away from the limelight. If the limelight gives them influence, they will go for it, but they may meet some roadblocks along the way, due to their strong-willed and ruthless natures.

And then, they won’t be happy campers. They will be resentful and hard to reach until they get over it and transform themselves (which they do to make themselves stronger).

Relationships: In relationships, they are fiercely attached to the ones they love. Unfortunately, they often try the field before realizing the one they really want. They have strong desires. They can seem a little possessive or controlling. They really want a deep and meaningful relationship. They want to feel “complete”. Somehow, they long for a partner that can really transform their lives. These partners give them the rush they crave. Many times, they jump from partner to partner, only to find shallow individuals.

They see rejection as an obstacle that they have to overcome. They may constantly change their tactics. You almost have to make yourself unattractive in order for them to stop and they will leave like they’ve never even liked you. They are all or nothing.
When taking someone on a date, they are really down for anything. They aren’t particular about dates. They usually ask where their dates want to go. It helps them learn a little more about their dates and see where their dates’ minds are. Let them know the time, place, and day. They will take their dates there.

They tend to boast and exaggerate as well, which can annoy some of their friends. Partners may find them exciting and intelligent but hard to pin down.
These men see boundaries as something that is literally “claimed”. But they don’t waste their time with items or people who are already “taken”.

Mars in Capricorn
Male Identity: When Mars enters Capricorn, the sign ruled by Saturn, he enters his exalted position, his most effective state of being. This may shock people, considering Saturn is falling in Mars’s sign Aries and considering Capricorn is really not like Mars. It’s not that they have similar natures (that’s the role of Mars’s rulership signs). Mars is most EFFECTIVE in this sign, meaning he gets the most accomplished and finds the best channel for all of his energy. Usually, Mars is impulsive, passionate, and fast-paced in getting what he wants. In Capricorn, he can still be ambitious, but he’s able to channel his passionate energy towards goals and his career. He finds outlets for his anger instead of impulsively jumping into senseless fights he’s not prepared for. Capricorn allows Mars to be focused but slows down his pace a bit so that he can really accomplish MORE. But Capricorn doesn’t slow him down too much. Mars can still be a leader in this cardinal earth sign, but he’s more responsible with his actions. Capricorn disciplines Mars so that Mars can accomplish a great deal more. It may feel a little suffocating for Mars, but Mars won’t disappointed. Mars has to make some sacrifices in this sign, but it’s well worth it in the end.
These men have a “survival of the fittest” mentality when it comes to masculinity. They believe only the strong survive. They don’t have patience for weakness and excuses.

They are not all serious. They tend to have a sarcastic wit and a sense of humor that easily relates to people.
They are suited to any career out in the world. They are good at focusing their energies and they work hard. They may not choose careers that seem reachable, but they are practical and tend to reach the impossible with their sensible minds. Really, anything is reasonably possible for these guys. They are “the man with a plan”. They may be drawn to professions that get them recognized and respected in the world. They may be drawn to politics, the entertainment industry, the medical or science fields, journalism, managerial positions, and CEO positions.
They may like sports and some see it as an excellent channel for their energies. They are also good at planning their moves. Some may choose a sport as a career.

No one should interfere with their goals and do other petty vindictive things. It’s childish to these men. It’s sure to anger them. But they would rather cut you out of their lives than lose their cool over small issues. Just about every issue is a small matter to these men. They have other things to worry about than to hold grudges and focus on squabbles.
Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Capricorn and how they fight and argue.
Around their peers, they are generally cool, funny, and laid-back. Most of their friends find them easy to get along with. Others may seem a little hard-nosed and ruthlessly ambitious. Some won’t even help their friends if they feel it will stop them from achieving their goals or if they feel their friends would be better at the job than they are. Partners find them sensible and easy-going but a little too controlled.
As far as boundaries, these men will push as far as they can go. If they can get away with it, they will overstep another man’s boundaries until someone stops them.

They want their relationships to be drama-free and they want partners that add or enhance their lives in some way. They don’t want a relationship to interfere with survival or their goals. The practical things come first for them.
These men feel a spark between themselves and Saturn, the planet of restriction, pessimism, and structure. This man thrives when faced with the limitations Saturn places. He feels a need to test Saturn’s boundaries, and yet Saturn proves to this man his limits. His relationship with Saturn is a challenging one, yet always solid. Saturn is trustworthy and never fails him. While he wants to rebel against Saturn, he will long for that security net when he does step out of those boundaries. It’s too exciting to feel like he’s not allowed to do something, more than it is to know he can!

These men are naturally composed and responsible, so they tend to be well-behaved without trying. But they would never immediately consider themselves chivalrous or polite. They are more responsible and dependable.
They may feel all men want to be strong and want to feel successful in the world. They may feel men are less emotional than women. They may be shocked to find men who think differently from them.
Male Sexuality: Once turned on, they go after their love interests honestly. They may have strong desires, but they don’t always act on their desires. They have a lot of self-control and can set their desires aside while they focus on more important things. They don’t let themselves go too far. They don’t like baggage. They are practical about starting a family and don’t like doing things on a whim.
They have to be in control and on top of their sex lives. They don’t easily let themselves go. They like to be the dominant partner.

Mars in Aquarius
Male Identity: Aquarius is a fixed air sign, ruled by Saturn and Uranus. Mars has a lot in common with Aquarius. Aquarius is an independent and free energy. Mars likes independence and freedom. But Aquarius is rooted and doesn’t have the passion or drive Mars is used to. Saturn cools Aquarius’s normally erratic nature.
Men with this placement see masculinity as motivated by society. And they don’t feel they should be defined by society’s social ideas. They are society’s truest rebels. They define masculinity in any way they want to, according to their own interests. They don’t like feeling controlled at all. They are very progressive men. They may be large supporters of the herbivore movement. Yet, they may be interested in what any other man is interested in, too.
They are open-minded and like to try new things. They are always interested in the latest technologies, theories, and ideas.

Aquarius is too cool for anger. They don’t see the point in getting mad. They would rather avoid people who try to upset them. They never try to upset others, but they can be straight-forward, which can anger some folks. If they do get angry, it’s because they feel their freedom is being taken from them. In this way, they will fight fiercely! They often tend to use non-violent but intelligent ways to fight opponents. They will not be suppressed. They use their voices to speak out against anything they feel is unfair. They have the connections to make their enemies feel shame.
Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Aquarius and how they fight and argue.
Around male peers, they are friendly, easy-going, and fun. They are always down for anything which makes them great companions. Of course, they have a strong need for freedom. They may seem eccentric or quirky at times. Partners may find them open-minded and easy to work with but hard to tie down.
Aquarius men have no desire to take what is someone else’s. It’s not worth it.
Relationships: They don’t want anyone trying to tie them down or control them. Relationships will only work with these men if they have the freedom to do what they did before a relationship. They see relationships as just another friendship. They prefer to be friends with partners. They don’t like drama and they get irritated when things get too emotional. Anything that threatens their freedom angers them. They need to maintain some autonomy and at least have their own hobbies and friends. They are always involved in some activities and they tend to surround themselves with associates. Their partners need to be open-minded.
These men constantly feel a spark between two conflicting energies: Saturn and Uranus. Saturn is the planet of restriction, pessimism, and structure. Uranus is the planet of rebellion, eccentricity, and upheaval. These men feel free when in a relationship with Uranus. They feel wild, like nothing in the world matters. They like that Uranus breaks the rules and encourages them to counter life with their own way of doing things. At the same time, they need rules to break them. Saturn respects their boundaries and keeps them separated from the chains of emotion. Saturn is logical and cool-almost cold. With too much Uranus, life never settles down and can become a little dangerous. They can’t really achieve much with so much change. With Saturn, life is stable and allows the man to achieve his goals in a structured manner. Without it, every cause will be lost.

They are generally open to anything and willing to change things up mid-date. They are actually really polite and easy-going. Of course, they are progressive men and prefer to treat their dates as equals. They don’t care to open doors and pull out chairs. They just treat people the way they want to be treated.
They may feel that all men want freedom and need their “own thing”. Of course, they feel each man is an individual. They certainly don’t like to be compared to other men. Still, other men may feel differently from them.
Male Sexuality: They have an open-minded view of sex. They are open to experimenting with anything. The quirkier the better! Still, they don’t need physical contact to enjoy sex. They see sex as a mental thing rather than a physical or spiritual thing. The thought of sex excites them more than the actual act. They actually have a hard time letting go in the actual act, especially with rowdy, passionate partners. Passionate people scare them a little.
They also don’t like the emotional baggage that comes with a sexual relationship. They fear their partners getting too attached or being weighed down with children. They prefer to keep “sex friends” who agree to keep their feelings out of it.
If you love a guy who is intelligent, involved in his community, and all about fairness and equality, you will love him. If you need emotional attachment and are easily jealous, they may not be the men for you. If you have Saturn or Uranus aspecting Mars or Mars in the 11th house, you may relate to this description.

Mars in Pisces
Male Identity: Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. Pisces is a mutable water sign. Mars likes Pisces’s freedom-loving energy (thanks to Jupiter), but he’s not too fond of Pisces’s passive nature. It has some things in common with the sign, but there are a lot of differences.
These men are much more passive than other men. They are quite, humble, and nice. Their idea of being a man is heavily influenced by the men in their environment. Being ruled by Neptune, they are easily influenced by others. They must be careful of being swept up in drugs and alcohol or any other addictions. They can easily get involved in “brotherhoods” that make them feel stronger or more powerful. They feel stronger in numbers.
They have a love of peace, solitude, and freedom. They are really loners who mostly stick to themselves. They often prefer pleasant company. They get stressed around demanding people. These men “go with the flow”. They may seem like easy targets to bullies. One of the reasons they are pushed around is because they aren’t as assertive as they should be. Instead they just “let” things happen.
These men spend a lot of time dreaming. They always want to escape from the hardships of life. They try to keep their spirits up and they tend to be unrealistic. On a positive note, these guys are truly compassionate. They are great listeners and will be there for their friends in a crisis.
They are creative types. They are well-suited to a career in music, drawing, or other forms of art. They may do well in farming or working off the ocean or sea (being a water sign and all). They may do well in religious fields, the medical fields, or teaching because they love bringing hope to others. They may work for charity organizations. They need a flexible routine because life really weighs on them. Sometimes, they feel a burst of energy; other times they are completely inert. They need a lot of time alone to recharge their energies. They absorb so much in their environments, it’s hard for them to relax. They need moments of isolation and meditation to keep them going. They also need positive people surrounding them at all times. With the right support, they can be involved in any career.
They athletic ones tend to learn sports easily. They absorb their surroundings and learn quickly. They don’t really like tense environments, but they love to have fun. They may be interested in playing any sports for a living as long as they can find a good team with a reasonable coach. They can be sensitive so they need to be around people they can get along with. They may be interested in sports that allow them freedom, like football/soccer or any sorts of racing. They often look to sports to inspire them and save them from a harsh environment.

They tend to have many different interests. They can get interested in anything. They are open-minded. Still, they must set up boundaries.
They don’t get angry too often. But they hate to be backed in a corner by more aggressive souls. The usual passive fish can turn into a shark if pushed around too long. Their anger is almost psychotic because it has usually been burning deep within. They are not usually aggressive, but they can turn aggressive if pushed too far. They can also be manipulative and vindictive if they aren’t able to fight physically.
Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Pisces and how they fight and argue.
Around male peers, they are shy but caring and helpful. They often let their friends push them around. Some friends may find them manipulative and weak-willed. Partners will find them humble and sweet. However, they seem to lack drive and ambition.

Relationships: They generally want their relationships to be calm and chilled. They are often looking for the ideal partner. They want a partner that is understanding, accepting, and easy-going. They also really need patience. They prefer partners that have the same interests. They don’t like bossy, demanding types. In fact, it makes them super nervous to be around those people. They are normally calm, but they may turn aggressive around other aggressive people. Mars in Pisces men have a tendency to reflect the people around them. They spend much of their time dreaming and they are artsy individuals rather than ambitious. They don’t want anyone shoving them, but they may appreciate a light push or some support when it comes to reaching their goals. They are more motivated when they have someone to back them up. They also need a lot of time alone. They have moments where they really want to be around their partners and moments where they don’t to be around anyone. This may not mean they don’t love their partners, they just need time alone to recharge and figure out their next plan of action in life.
This man always feels a spark between Jupiter, the planet of expansion, optimism, and abundance, and Neptune, the planet of imagination, dreams, and delusions. This man needs the optimism from Jupiter to keep going in life. Without it, he often feels defeated. Jupiter gives him everything, saving him from himself, and he never wants for anything. Jupiter offers him a chance to move out of an ordinary existence. Jupiter offers him many different experiences. At the same time, Neptune’s dreamy nature is super stimulating. When dreaming of all that he can do, it excites him in ways nothing else can. He doesn’t care what anyone says, he desires Neptune and longs to make his own dreams come true through him. Neptune brings out his creative potential. However, neither relationship is very realistic.
They don’t approach the ones they like easily. They always seem a little nervous and shy. They may be indirect. They may send secret gifts, may spend a lot of time the person they like, and may try to find common ground. Actually finding the words (and the courage) to ask someone out may take forever. They may end up getting a friend to help them out a bit. If the person they like is nice and quiet, they will find it easier to approach the individual. Usually, their approach is quiet and smooth. They are simple about asking someone out. They may buy flowers. They may promise the world for the people they are interested in.
When they take individuals on a date, they like to be comfortable and isolated. They don’t like too much commotion. They may still like to do fun things, just alone with their dates. Still, they may not prefer to take too many risks unless they are really comfortable with their dates. If their dates make them feel extremely comfortable, they will do anything for that person! They tend to like going to places they can “escape”. They may like the movies because it’s dark and usually quiet. They may enjoy isolated dinners or quiet picnics in the park. They may enjoy going to a museum on an empty day. They may enjoy a concert or music festival. They may pick their dates up for a motorcycle ride to nowhere. They really want to feel like the harsh world melts away when out with their dates. They are generally quiet guys, so they don’t have to try to hard to have good manners. But they get nervous when trying to remember to be chivalrous and may be clumsy as a result.
They may feel all men are awkward in relationships. They may feel most guys want to “escape” from the world (possibly through t.v. or video games). They may not feel men are as strong as they “act”. They would feel uncomfortable around men who think differently, though they wouldn’t be surprised to find differences in the world. They tend to see things in people others don’t often see.
Male Sexuality: These men have many different fantasies in their minds. They want sex to be like in their dreams, favorite movies, and/or in porn. They may be disappointed in the real world and may constantly be dissatisfied sexually as a result. These men may move from partner to partner trying to find the ideal sexual partner only to discover that it takes work to find a sex partner that is “ideal”. For one, communication is important. People can’t read another person’s mind. Second, in reality, everyone has needs and different body types (and functions). They may not see this scenario realistically (especially if they watch porn), which causes the disappointment.
Sexually, they are all about pleasing their partners and being pleased. They are open to all sorts of sexual experiences. They may even be interested in really eccentric sexual practices, like S&M. They may have secret desires that they would like to unleash. The best sex partner for them is someone who makes their dreams come true.
If you like a man who is sweet, compassionate, easy-going, and artistic, you will love these men. If you don’t like men who dream their lives away, looking for someone driven, prefer someone more assertive, or you consider yourself a more practical type, they may not be the man for you. If you have Neptune aspecting Mars or Mars in the 12th house, you may relate to this description. Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune, so your Jupiter and Neptune signs will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Jupiter and Neptune signs within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Pisces, Jupiter or Neptune in Aries, you can read Mars in Aries to see if it sounds more familiar to you.
