Mars is the closest planet to Earth that is further away from the Sun, representing the first point of departure from the inner solar system. Mars’s cycles are rough and irregular, further off the ecliptic, jagged in his recurring geometry as his scarred red face crosses the sky. Accordingly, Mars is the planet of action, courage, conflict, passion, separations, divisions. The condition of Mars at the time of our birth says something about how we fight for what we want, our competitive spirit, our propensity for bravery, our experience with danger and risk.
Mars in Capricorn is in a cardinal earth sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, Saturn. This is someone whose strength is in their seriousness, discipline and ambition. These are people who are not prone to mistakes, do not get easily provoked but also do not often lose when they decide to enter the fray. In conflicts they may act more like generals, in command of troops who fight on their behalf. They may not be afraid to burn bridges and backstab if it means rising in the ranks. Mars in Capricorn combines the best parts of Mars’ ruthlessness and effectiveness without its recklessness.
This is especially true if you were born with Aries or Scorpio rising. Whether you experience the better or worse significations of this position depends on whether you were born during the day or at night, and the kind of aspects it makes with the other planets.
