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 Leo is in a fixed fire sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, the Sun. This is someone whose strength comes from their own will power and confidence, their display of ferocity and the power they wield with the authority of their platform and spotlight. They can be provoked by slights on their pride, or anything that diminishes their status as the best. They can be ballsy, brave and honorable, taking on leadership in stressful or dangerous situations. With Mars in Leo, this person can be cocky to a fault, and shouldn’t write checks they can’t cash, as it were. They can be good at team sports if they get to showboat or be the teamleader. Don’t insult their pride.
This is especially true if you were born with Aries, Leo 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.
