planets in astrology, Simple Astrology


Mars is the God of War in astrology and the planet of energy. The mars is the desire. It represents red blood cells in human body. The soul doesn’t take birth and body is unable to take birth again in this world. What makes you come to earth as a human being is a desire. I previously explained in my other article that why people born with certain ascendent on earth with a different mindset. In this article, I explain the mindset according to ascendant and what are the remaining desires in you so that you born again. That’s why everyone has a different mindset due to different desire. The desire of gaining or fulfilling something makes you birth again on earth.

You can see when the birth chart is described by our great Indian sages they give first house which is your ascendant, to the planet Mars (Aries) and the 8th house which house of death and rebirth assign to mars. Mars is the significator of the 3rd house which is 8th house from 8th house. The reason for your life till death is marred. If someone doesn’t want to come again on earth or take birth the person must have not any desire left.

Mars only gives you result when you fulfill his three rules of the person should have a strong desire or you can say burning(mars is a fiery planet) desire otherwise that desire will not fulfill. The meaning that till your desire is not fulfilled you can’t get rest. The most important is desire should be reachable. Your planetary period will tell that whether your desire is going to fulfilled or not or you can calculate by yourself after making so many efforts to achieve any desire. Mars is a third powerful planet of your birth chart. First is Jupiter which has control of 11 houses, second is Saturn control of 10 houses and mars has 9 houses control.

Virabhadra returned to Shiva who was extremely pleased with him, and granted him a place in the heavens as a planet and named him Angaraka (Mars), the fiercest of planets.
