Mars in the 1st House: Taming of the Fire
PHYSIQUE: masculine features, defined face, strong eyebrows, straight nose, clear eyes, full lips, mostly straight hair
As a natal Mars in the 1st house person, you a force to be reckoned with – you strike before the enemy gets you. Your determination and boundless energy gets you sometimes into accidental trouble, but also leads you towards new and exciting places for you to conquer.
Not the type to give up easily, you constantly endeavour in order to win the battle for that is where life often places you – in the middle of the battlefield with a sword in your hand. Your tremendous persistence and ability to break through walls built by others is commendable. Unless Mars is afflicted with unfavourable aspects in the chart, pursuing new interests and targets motivates your inner fire and helps you get up in the mornings.
Inspiration is drawn from fearless historical figures or characters in literature, movies and games. A pull towards the element of fire is strong in you as you often find yourself rejuvenated by bonfires or candlelight. A love of black leather and red hair might also be typical. You radiate the energy of a fighter and come off as forceful to other more gentle and shy signs.
A childlike expression can often be seen in your eyes as you embark upon dangerous quests. Spontaneity is in your nature and you hate being held back – your assertive side explodes in a sudden way when anybody tries to. Headstrong, willful and reckless, you charge ahead sometimes without tact and find yourself in dire circumstances. However, no matter how many times you fall down, you always get back up again and break free from everything. Nobody should ever try to restrain you as you were born with the karmic lesson of embracing your individuality and standing up for yourself.
“He who conquers himself is the mightiest warrior.” ~ Confucius
