In modern day, we are exposed to all sorts of tons of information, about everything we are interested in, as well as about what we would never ask for.
This over-presence of everything in the media leads to great confusion and suspicion. We end up overlooking important information and re-questioning everything we thought it was truth.
Alternative and non-official disciplines are particularly susceptible to our doubt, in the modern age. The same happens with astrology. Astrology today definitely has its spotlight, but it also seems to us as just one of the things for our amusement. You read about your zodiac sign in those few lines in your recent online feedback and that is it.
You probably consider it interesting, if not intriguing and might as well think there is some truth in it.
Well, such a horoscope is just a piece of much more detailed info. Popularity in media leads to misconceptions and it changes the essential meaning of some of the basic criteria needed for proper understanding and knowing the astrological norms, rules and overall methodology.
Although today labeled as a pseudo science, not an official one, astrology consists of all basic elements needed for establishing an approach as a scientific discipline. Astrology has its norms, rules, methods and principles, just as any other. Astrology we know in modern times, Western astrology, is of recent origins, while the roots of this ‘science of stars’ seize back into very old days.
Astrology in wider perspective is old for thousands of years; it is, by all means, an ancient science. There were times astrology was glorified and much appreciated and astrologers played an important role in determining the future of a country. They were precious counselors at royal courts, to kings and generals.
Their counsel and advice were of a great importance when leading a war campaign or heading into battle. They were the only ones to interpret the signs that come to us from skies and star above. There were other times when astrology was denied, even forbidden, considered obscure and dark, just as black magic, witchcraft and sorcery.
However, it has returned and in our time, it is given a kind of ambivalent attention. While some people take it very seriously and trust its methods, others find it unreliable and tricky. Some think of it as a fraud and just another way for some people to gain extra income.
Well, the truth is somewhere in between. It, of course, matters a lot who practices astrology.
There have always been tricksters and serious ones and it will be so, as long as we humans rule the Earth. Here, we talk about expert astrology, if we could name it so. This ancient discipline has many paths and we are mostly interested in personalized or natal astrology.
Mars and Horoscope
Natal astrology is related to personalized horoscope of an individual. It is much more from general information you read about your zodiac sign in a newspaper. Natal astrology interprets your birth chart, which is a kind of your celestial identification card.
According to this chart, your personal horoscope is made. What is this birth chart we talk about?

One of the elements are planets. Today, we talk about Mars. Before that, let us briefly introduce you to the importance of planetary influence.

They are the Sun and the Moon, Venus, Mercury and Mars. The first two, as you know, are not actual planets, but in astrology, they are taken as planets. Mars is one of those. Mars is associated with activity, action, determination, strength, persistence, ambition, impulsiveness, courage, boldness, bravery and fighting spirit.
It is associated with the mighty Ares, the Greek deity of war. Planet Mars rules over Scorpio and Taurus.

For example, if Mars is positioned in the astrological house of career, it means you will put much effort into your professional development and you will most likely become a very ambitious person. Mars in zodiac signs is extremely an important aspect.
This planet rules over our animalistic nature, our instincts and our physical energy. It makes us competitive, enthusiastic, energetic and strong.
Mars, however, could also be very destructive, depending on its position and other aspects in your birth chart. Mars is associated with destruction, difficulties, troubles and even with death. Its energy is fierce and fiery and it could make you aggressive.
