What does Mars in Aries Mean?

Mars is the planet of energy and drive, showing what kind of energy we have and what drives us to take action. In your birth chart, Mars shows how you act and what makes you want to.

Mars is desire and motivation and taking the initiative.

In transit, Mars shows how and where energy is currently focused. As Mars travels through the zodiac, this changes with each sign Mars is touring (and each house in your natal chart Mars is traveling through).

Mars in Aries brings Mars home. Mars is the natural ruling planet for this Fire sign, and this can bring some degree of comfort with the energy. It’s a little bit easier to make use of, and we could really use it now!

Since there is so much extra energy and passion, channeling it productively is crucial to manage it; otherwise, you may have to deal with extra frustration, annoyance, irritability, and lots of fights.
