Mars’ current placement in Leo is all about confidence, self-expression, and very fiery active male energy. This aspect brings a peacock to mind. The warrior at his best dressed and most confident.
As Mars is a warrior, all of the attributes needed to be a warrior are associated.
Activity, movement, action and yang masculinity. This energy is protective and also warring, so not to be messed with.
As Mars is represented on the 5th Sephirot of the Qabalistic tree of life, known as Geburah. This energy is considered something of a “..Cosmic Surgeon” as Dion Fortune puts it.
Mars in an exalted aspect “gets shit done”!
The first mineral that is associated with Mars that comes to mind is Asbestos – protection from fire as well as the ability to burn continuously without being consumed.
A herb that is associated with Mars is
Leek – again protection, used in exorcism and is known to be a curse breaker.
Mars is often used for magick involving taming one’s enemies and protecting a person, place or thing from harm or malicious psychic intent.
As with all energies, there should be a balance in one’s life. Too much fire with an imbalance of the other 3 elements will cause impulsivity, anger, irritation, and discord.
That said, the energy of Mars is certainly to be admired and used with caution. When Mars is engaged in your goals, you can be sure that things will move along.
Much love my fellow Martian lovers<3
