Mars in Aquarius
Mars in Aquarius or Mars in Relation to Aquarius
(from Esoteric Astrology)
There are no direct connections of Mars to the sign, Aquarius, though
as a member of the Fixed Cross, Aquarius naturally receives an indirect
impulsion from Mars (which is so active in relation to Scorpio).
Specific Expressions of Mars in Aquarius
1. Mars (in Aquarius) in Relation to the Dense Physical Vehicle:
Aquarius rules the entire circulatory system and, therefore, Mars in this sign rules the entire “rush” of the blood. Hence the rapid stimulation and mobilization of the physical vehicle, but hence, also, its nervousness and high-strung nature. The circulatory system, therefore, may become supercharged, under the impulse of a highly stimulated nervous system, and, therefore, one those possessed of this combination may have to guard against high blood pressure, arrhythmia of the heart, and conditions of undue nervousness and tension.
2. Mars (in Aquarius)
in Relation to the Etheric Vehicle:
Mars in Aquarius acts as a great stimulant to the etheric body, making it subject to rushes of pranic energy, and producing an easily excitable etheric nature, but one that is, also, overly “nervous”. A chaotic condition of the ethers must be avoided, and the tendency to ‘strife’ between the various chakras. Under Mars in Aquarius, etheric energy is easily available at a moment’s notice according to desire (“Let desire in form be ruler”).
3. Mars (in Aquarius)
in Relation to the Astral Vehicle:
The emotional and sentient vibrancy which the Tibetan is suggesting can only be augmented by Mars, the planet of passion and strong desire. In the early days of evolution, however, Mars in Aquarius, a sign of “constant movement” and of changing activity (EA 141), may give a superficial ‘out-goingness’ of desire towards all manner of objects of desire. But the Aquarian nature always deepens over time.
Aquarian ideals take hold and render the astral body easily aroused in response to that idealism. So frequently, in the aspirant and disciple, this combination will contribute to the desire for the new, and the sentient nature will be inspired by a vision of that new. This may give a general attitude of progressiveness, and the ready ardor to champion and fight for revolutionary causes.
4. Mars (in Aquarius) in Relation to the Concrete Mind:
This position, therefore, will add a scientific component to the mind, and render it more responsive to progressive possibilities in the three worlds. All things being equal, the combination renders the mind more alert and alive, and responsive to the relationships between things. The mind becomes powerful in arousing the emotions and mobilizing the vital energies of the etheric body, for the mind is subject to the control of the mind: The Tibetan speaks of “the need of realizing that the etheric body is vitalized and controlled by thought and can (through thought) be brought into full functioning activity.” (TWM 77)
5. Mars (in Aquarius) in Relation to the Personality as a Whole:
Scientific Aquarius is always interested in the nature of energy (especially electrical, invisible and subtle energies), and Mars in this sign gives the tendency to wield energy forcefully and, perhaps, immoderately. This position, for instance, might prove a danger to those whose job it was to repair high tension wires, and, yet, they would be attracted to just such work. The higher correspondences exist, and those with this position must seek wisdom in their handling of the subtler energies of the human energy system.
6. Mars (in Aquarius) in Relation to Glamor and Necessary Transmutations
Mars in Aquarius is an arhythmic combination, and may work against the wisdom inherent in the nature of things, in natural law. Eccentric solutions, deviating greatly from soul values, may be conceived. The excesses of National Socialism (an Aquarian movement of the lowest kind) were further exacerbated by aggressive Mars. Group glamors are also likely—especially with respect to militant groups which, believing too strongly in the rectitude of their ideals, act aggressively towards other groups.
The disruptive, stress-inducing tendencies of this combination must be overcome. Natural rhythm, tranquility and serenity should be cultivated. In general, there must arise a regulation of energy and a guarding against what might be called ‘over-electrification’ of the human energy system.

13. Mars (in Aquarius) in Relation to the Nature of Personality
Rebellion against the Soul:
From another perspective, Aquarius is a sign of synthesis and is often (due to inclusiveness and much experience) multi-talented. If, however, there is an over-absorption in the expression of the many talents and abilities of the personality, the individual may well forget what those gifts are for, and may love his own abilities more than he loves the soul (which those abilities are meant to serve).
14. Mars (in Aquarius) in Relation to Personality Cooperation
with the Soul:
Aquarius unites the many energies and forces into wholeness, and Mars gives the ready impelling energy to do so. Aquarius is the “Man for all seasons” and Mars gives the courage to undertake the burden of working in this broad, expansive and often complicated way. Soul-life is much broader in scope than personality life, and with Mars in Aquarius, there is a eager entry into the abundant, wider life which Aquarius seeks to bestow. With this break-through combination, we have one who dares to be more.
