Mars in Libra: Check out the general characteristics of this influence in Libra’s life

Are you a native of Mars in Libra , but stopped to think about the meaning of this? It is important to understand how Mars in the Astral Chart influences our lives.

And believe me: for you, being a man or a woman, the Red Planet does make a lot of difference, yes. Contrary to what some people imagine.

But, after all, what does this all mean? After all, what important aspect of your “I” and of your life does Mars in the Astral Chart govern?


Before talking about the action of Mars in each of the signs, it is necessary to talk about what Mars in the Astral Chart means.

In astrology he is called the Little Malefic: this does not mean that his evils are small or minor. What happens is that they are more “manageable” than those represented by the Greater Malefic, Saturn.

Mars governs conflicts, arguments, confusions, aggression and hatred. Looking at it this way, it looks like a pretty negative planet, doesn’t it? Know that this is not the case:

The Red Planet also governs our workforce, our action, our impulses, our way of acting, our assertiveness and where and how we manifest our energy and initiative.

But not only that: it is also an important ruler of our desire and sexuality.

In a woman‘s Astral Chart, for example, Mars reveals the type of man who will awaken her eroticism. In a man’s Map, in turn, the Red Planet reveals how he tends to act during the conquest.

Libra is part of the Air element signs. Governed by Venus, this positioning is a detriment to Mars, that is, it is not a position that makes you comfortable, because it is not natural for Libra to impose itself as is typical of Mars. 

Also, Libra is the sign where Mars is furthest away from its home. So it can be said that this is where the influence of this planet is at its weakest.


Mars/Ares is the God of War. However, he did not expect wars to be waged in order to influence the native, as Mars – the planet of action – conflicts with Libra, a typically balanced, pondered, etc. sign.

On the bright side, all of Mars’ anger, impatience, recklessness, selfishness, and brutality is tempered by Libra‘s influence. Therefore, It is a placement that has more harmony and balance.

On the downside, that all-active side of Mars ends up being hurt because the sign of Libra can bring more hesitation.

Of course, the influence of Mars amplifies certain Libra characteristics, not always to the positive side. For example, Libra doesn’t like injustice. Mars, then, potentiates this feeling until it causes real upheaval.

One of the main characteristics of Mars in Libra is sociability and the need to have close people and relationships built on balance and harmony.
