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 Libra is in a cardinal air sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, Venus. This is someone whose strength is in persuasion, recruiting others to the fight, and reframing conflicts to their advantage. Their weapons are social manipulations, charm offensives, peer pressure. This can also be someone who has to fight battles against their friends and enemies at the same time and struggles to maintain balance. It is difficult for people with this position to take bold action because of competing interests and factors. In some ways, Mars in Libra resists its own war-like nature, since it’s in the opposite sign of its bold and direct home of Aries. They’re provoked by imbalances and inequities affecting themselves and others.
This is especially true if you were born with Aries, Libra 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.
