Complete information related to self, like who you are, what is your basic drive, what are your primary tendencies, your likes, and dislikes, what is the purpose of your life, your passion, and inclinations. Now let’s understand the position of Mars a fiery planet in the 1st house.
Mars is a hot, planet with a fiery temperament. It represents courage, action, impulsiveness, irritation, and aggression. As per the Astrology cabinet, Mars is given the title of Commander-in-chief. Here Mars will make a person develop that commanding attitude.
Mars is a warrior, fighter, and Commander so perhaps this category does not understand emotions, love, and romance. They want to work and achieve goals so perhaps workaholic. Also, the 1st house Mars gives the Manglik Dosha. This only means that there is a lot of passion and energy to work and accomplish goals.
It’s always more helpful if the enthusiasm of two people in a relationship balances. This is the reason, Horoscope Matching becomes necessary. Both should have Mars of the same spirit, else there can be frictions and misunderstandings in the relationship or marriage.
Mars in Lagna or 1st house can make a person very active and enthusiastic. It can make one very dominating and overconfident. Now a warrior-like planet when connects with your image, personality, and inclinations, how will it work?
Here first you need to determine the charge Mars has been given in your horoscope. Though Mars is a malefic planet, if it’s a functional benefic in the horoscope, then it works differently.
A planet is considered to be strong when in its own sign, exalted, or in a friendly sign. Jupiter, Sun, and Moon are the friendly planets. And Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, Venus, Mercury are considered enemies.
Mars owns the rulership of signs Aries and Scorpio in the natural zodiac. Aries is the first sign of the natural zodiac and is the fiery sign and very impulsive, spontaneous, and action-oriented.
Whereas Scorpio is the 8th lord of the natural zodiac and is a watery sign. This sign governs things that are mysterious, undercover, or even suspicious.
Now most important part to check the strength of a planet is that these two signs owned by mars should not fall in the Dukh Sthana like the 6th house, 8th house, and 12th house.
And if these two signs get the rulership of Lagna, 11th house, Kendra or Trikona then they get power to make a raj yoga. Here in addition if Mars gets (PAC) position, aspect, conjunct with a friendly sign, own sign, or even exalted sign then it gives amazing results.
This Mars is that hero who works on higher principles. It will make the person very bold and confident. Also aggressive, hardworking, and always full of energy. They love to do daring assignments. And won’t tolerate injustice and prefer to be straightforward rather than being diplomatic.
Here don’t forget that this kind of Mars is not scared it doesn’t believe in hiding or escaping from the situation. They believe in the power of truth, virtue, and goodness.
This mighty Mars cannot take commands, he wants things his way and never gives up easily. I would like to add that here Mars being a fiery element will have higher goals of purity, and perfection.
Moreover, people like to be around them due to their spark, confidence, and also feeling of security. This Mars person is not scared of adversities they are bold enough to win battles with truth, justice, and honesty.
In profession, a strong Mars can give a technical bent, or functional approach in life, Even surgeons and doctors have strong Mars. Other daring vocations like Defense, army, police, navy, and Airforce are also given by dynamic Mars in the horoscope. As this represents stamina and vitality, so all sports career can be included in this. In the food industry, it will signify Chef, as a positive Mars will be around the fire, but for good reasons.
Mars will be considered weak if with Malefic planets like Rahu, Ketu, Mercury, and Saturn. And even if with planets, it is inimically related like Venus. plus the lordship of the 6th house, 8th house, and 12th house.
Thus if Mars is the 6th lord, and the 8th lord and posited in Lagna, then it can give you health issues, and if in inimical sign then it can make the person aggressive, and clever, and stubborn. Here this type of Mars will work on lower principles. He is selfish, quarrelsome, argumentative, and can be even violent at times if there are more afflictions.
The 8th lordship Mars can bring secret affairs to your character. It brings a daring attitude, and if with Rahu or Saturn it can give a criminal mindset as well. Such people use their intelligence to cause harm and by being brutal. They have sadistic nature if a weak Moon also gets connected to this irritated Mars.
Such people lose their temper very fast and are out of control. perhaps can create drama. They believe in attaining things by hook or by crook. Since they don’t believe in moral values and ethics. Also, they will never bother about the emotions of others for their own benefit.
In my experience, such people do what they want in Mars period but when Jupiter takes the power they get results of their Karma in the form of chronic illness or some major setbacks.
The 12th lordship of Mars is weak but cannot cause harm unless it has other afflictions. This Mars can make a person spendthrift, research-oriented, and also have great imaginative or intuitive skills. Since the 12th house depicts your hidden talent. They can be spiritual, as well since the 12th house is the last Moksha house. Hence this Mars in 1st house can make a person settle abroad, dive into mediations, become philanthropists, or join different religious organizations.
A weak Mars in the 1st house, actually makes the person irritated and restless all the time. It will not allow a person to stay in one job for long due to its hasty decisions.
But even this kind of Martian person can get involved with machine-related jobs like factory machines or some industry where more laborious work is required. Also jobs like hair saloon, tailor, or even carpenter.
You need to understand the position of Mars in a chart and then speak of Mars’s features. Everyone with Mars in 1st house will not have the same attributes. First, you have to check the sign of Lagna, planets posited, and then the house ruled by Mars.
A strongly positioned Mars person is very ambitious and courageous. If there is a raj yoga formed in Lagna or 1st house with Mars then during its timeline, it will fulfill all the desires of a person. Mars’s position tells about the desire, passion, and spirit of a person. Whereas weak Mars will make the person involved in some of the other conflicts.
Mars is a planet that gives a lot of energy and creativity. So this enthusiasm and drive if given the right channels to exhaust then can be very beneficial for a person else same Mars if out of charge and doesn’t know where to channelize this fire energy it can be self-destructive.
