The Planet Mars in Vedic Astrology
Vedic Astrology 101 – The Planet Mars
I describe some of the basic qualities of the planet Mars in Vedic Astrology in the above video.
In Vedic astrology, each of the planets has indications (or karakas) that appear in each person’s life in different ways and flavors, according to their individual Vedic Birth Chart or according to its transit in the sky. The planet Mars has to do with karma, karma yoga, or action and is connected with the element of fire. It is associated with owning land, real estate, and property.
Mars is also associated with warrior energy, which is actually yoga. Yogic practices are what ancient and modern warriors have done to cultivate the sharpness of the mind and the body. ‘
Mars is an important planet for our health and vitality. For half the world, Mars is what I call a personal “power planet”.
It governs the quality of blood and athleticism or the ability to act in the world and get things done.
Mars has a two-year orbit around the Sun, and so it will spend two months in each constellation in its path around the Sun, on average.
In May and June of 2023, Mars is in the constellation of Cancer. It’s ‘weakest’ place in its orbit.
So, half the world may potentially feel a little more fatigued, tired, uninspired, directionless or find they have a hard time starting or completing actions.
Heat and the Planet Mars in Leo
I explained in the Third Quarterly Class in Conscious Calendars that our summer was not going to feel like it started until July 2023. And then it will begin with a bang, with a massive amount of heat, over-expanded activity, tons of movement, projects, and overstimulation. The exhausted feeling from May and June 2023 will give way to an over-heated planet and people. Sure enough, as I began the Third Quarterly Course the planet was reaching lifetime high temperatures and the most number of hot days ever recorded!
I explain the qualities of the planets each month how to align with the positive forces and how to counteract the negative experiences the planets may bring every month when you become a premium member of Conscious Calendars in free videos that come with a subscription to Conscious Calendars.
