CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #104 -- Mars in Love
July 21, 2013

This time we discuss natal Mars and what it signifies in matters of love. In particular, we will for now discuss the position of Mars in the zodiac signs in female charts.

There should always be made a distinction between male and female charts (and possibly too between day and night charts) because the difference matters.

Unfortunately, nobody looks at it this way (obviously because there is no research in this field and it would be too time-consuming too).

But still, men and women are not equal and we cannot neglect these realities!

Much love!

Love Forecasts for August 2013

This month of August 2013 is marked by a cardinal T-square between Uranus in Aries (the apex planet) that will square Jupiter in Cancer on the one side and Pluto in Capricorn on the other hand.

Because of the upcoming breakthroughs and uncoverings, you will likely look at the world at large in totally a new perspective once the month is over.

In general, the most important events are likely to happen around August 2, August 9, August 16, August 22 and/or August 29-30.

August starts with anger and rage when impulsive Mars at 12° Cancer squares revolting Uranus at 12° Aries.

Actually, because Mars is the dispositor of Uranus (Mars rules Aries in which Uranus is posited), things get out of hand.

This waxing (outgoing) square is a turbulent one.

Mars, the fighter, feels not well in emotional Cancer and can hardly control its 'emotions' when it contacts disruptive and rebellious Uranus in active Aries, the more so because both planets are posited at the most powerful degrees in a zodiac sign.

Also, it's an accident-prone combination and one of over-doing (too speedy, too impulsive, too rash,...) resulting in physical injuries.

If you are born between January 2-5, January 31-February 4, March 2-6, April 1-5, May 2-6, June 2-6, July 3-7, August 4-8, September 4-8, October 4-9, November 4-8 or December 3-7, the early August days are full of passion, sexual encounters, sudden attractions etc.

Around August 2-3, there are some changes going on in the home-front (you may either do some home improvements or envision changing the residence).

Some of you may start on vacation and travel.

The effects will be felt especially if you are born around January 11-12, February 25, April 11, May 28, July 14, August 30, October 15 or November 29.

The Sun at 12° Leo squares the North Node of the Moon around August 4 denoting a period of low vitality.

Some higher-ups and/or celebrities may have it difficult to live their full potential and may need to withdraw for the time being.

It's a tense and stressful period anyway with lots of resistance.

In some instances, you may be obliged or ordered to make a small trip (either for work or otherwise).

Jupiter at 9° Cancer opposes Pluto at 9° Capricorn around August 7-8.

This aspect questions the power of religions. It will force you to learn standing on your own feet and follow your inner Self.

In mundane astrology, the Jupiter-Pluto combo is about huge profit and massive pressure and will bring power plays in the corporate, political and religious world to the foreground that may rewrite your belief system or outlook.

This combo is about digging into manipulation and uncovering integrity dilemmas.

Also, on a personal level, the opposition takes place between two zodiac signs that have to do with the parental home and buildings/real estate, so that your inner focus will likely be on home improvements and/or your position at home.

You may consider building a house or leaving a familiar group.

Around the same day of August 8, Mercury enters Leo in which it becomes very talkative.

This is a very good time for writing and discussing things (openly).

Between August 9-11, the astrological configurations point to lots of imagination and creativity.

If you are into the fields of arts and/or photography, you may be able to show your talents.

The mood is romantic and full of magic.

Some of you may live in a magical fantasy world and feel in love.

However, around August 11, a reality check will follow when Mercury at 5° Leo squares Saturn at 5° Scorpio.

You will feel bitter and lonely. There is sorrow that you cannot openly communicate.

You may be in a suspicious mood and too irritable and annoyed to go out.

Between August 11-13, your plans may not be accomplished and remain just dreams and imagination.

It's a good time though to keep yourself busy with spiritual and metaphysical interests.

If you are born around August 12, your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) will be about illness, not feeling well and quite some dissatisfaction.

The August 13-14 time frame is about enjoyable moments, socializing, receiving gifts/parcels, happiness etc.

If you are born around January 31-February 1, March 17-18, May 1-3, June 17-18, August 3-4, September 19-20, November 3-4 or December 18-19 you will feel the auspicious transits most.

However, Mercury at 11° Leo squares the North Node of the Moon at 11° Scorpio around August 14 too so that some misunderstandings are possible.

Venus enters its own sign Libra around August 16 and is all about enjoyable talks and agreements.

However, there will be lots of diplomacy necessary to keep the harmony and peace because Mars is not building auspicious astrological patterns now.

On the contrary, during August 16-19, there is a whole lot of brutality, pressure and violence noticeable.

In its most auspicious meaning, the time frame is about construction work and real estate issues.

In the worst scenario, the period is marked by fires, legal issues, self-destructing battles, damage to property and tragic traffic accidents.

If you are born around August 18, your whole (solar return) year is about fortunate changes and developments, big successes and huge progress.

Whatever you envision will succeed.

Avoid public transportation services and travel between August 18-20 because lots of astrological configurations point to the possibility of severe traffic accidents.

Around August 20-21, there is love's sorrow and sadness noticeable.

Around August 21, Jupiter at 12° Cancer squares Uranus at 12° Aries.

This waxing Jupiter-Uranus square marks a quantum leap resulting in discoveries and breakthoughs.

The time frame between August 21-24 marks a highly insightful period of revelations, (technical and scientific) breakthroughs and fortunate developments that will mark humanity.

The period is about a series of fortunate breaks.

If you are born around January 1-3, February 14-16, March 31-April 2, May 16-18, July 2-4, August 18-20, October 3-5 or November 18-20, the auspicious configurations will affect you directly.

In mundane astrology the Jupiter-Uranus cycle is linked with capitalism and the 'free market.'

Also, it often points to breaking away from mainstream religions and politics and we expect this month of August to bring (new) revelations related to the Vatican.

Around August 22-23 the Sun enters Virgo, followed by Mercury entering Virgo, its own sign, the day after.

Both bodies changing a sign is related to players entering another room/environment.

The Sun and Mercury in Virgo are very analytical, detail-oriented and love being of service.

The atmosphere is cooling of, the focus is on work, not on love.

Around August 24, Venus at 9° Libra squares Pluto at 9° Capricorn, while the Sun and Mercury conjunct at 1° Virgo.

This is all about submission and forceful repression.

Beware of abusive behavior.

Around August 25-26, Mercury at 3° Virgo opposes Neptune at 3° Pisces. Both planets are in their own zodiac sign and thus very powerful.

However, both planets have opposite meanings, resulting in quite some confusion.

Information is distorted and there may be more misinformation and misunderstandings than usual.

Venus at 11° Libra opposes Uranus at 11° Aries around August 26 as well, denoting love at a distance. Though there is attraction and even love at first signt, love is out of reach, leaving you disappointed behind.

However, if you are born around January 2, February 14-15, April 1, May 17, July 3, August 19, October 4 or November 18, your hearts are filled with love.

Disappointment will manifest for some of you the day after, around August 27, when the Sun at 3° Virgo opposes dissolving and deceptive Neptune at 3° Pisces.

You are left alone and this may result in a feeling of inferiority and feeling misused and/or abused.

Around the same day of August 27, Venus at 13° Libra squares Jupiter at 13° Cancer resulting in quite a vacillating love life with short-lived attractions during these late August days.

Impulsive and commanding Mars enters self-centered Leo around August 28 and wants to assert itself.

Mars in Leo is extravert and loves to impress others by being creative and a little more 'dramatic.'

It's a showy position that needs some fun and play.

Late August is marked by enforced trips/travel (travel for work) and/or study.

There may be (harsh) disputes during meetings planned between August 28-31, so try to keep your head cool.

August 30-31 may be related to agony, severe oppression and difficulties to overcome.

Late August, a Grand Cross in Cardinal signs (between Venus, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto) will show more impatience, impulsiveness and ambitions, but also many love affairs, irresistible desires and sudden attractions.

What's New on Our Web Site?

We updated our Virgo in Love page with new additional and significant traits which is the result of a very time-consuming analysis of 42,000+ birth data taken from the AstroDatabank.

Now that Google discontinued its 'Google Reader', our web site management recommended using Feedly instead.

This RSS feed reader looks very similar to the Google Reader and seems to be very reliable.

The (green) Follow Feedly button is now added to the list of our RSS feed readers instead of the Google Reader.

The list of RSS feed readers is still found on our web site below the left navigation bar.

Personally, we also very much like "The Old Reader" ( -- which imitates the look & feel of the Google Reader).

Go Read ( is another Google Reader clone that looks very promising.

Mars in Love

In the natal chart, every planet and body represents some archetypes that are part of human life. Though the meanings of the planets and bodies differ between men and women, they still have some common characteristics.

In this article we will discuss the meanings of Mars in the natal chart and what it actually represents regarding your romantic life.

Mars is the ruler of the cardinal fire sign Aries, which is the 1st zodiac sign in the Tropical Zodiac.

The Universe starts so to speak with archetypal Aries traits so that Aries is all about a new beginning.

Because Mars rules this zodiac sign, it takes on most of its meanings.

Hence, Mars is active and action-oriented. Mars is the do-er and therefore, his main domain is just working and being busy.

That's why Mars is one of the most important work-related planets and if you want to know about your job, analyze Mars!

Because Mars rules the zodiac sign of the beginnings, Mars is still naive. It has not experienced everything and just wants to ignite, initiate and start something.

Hence, Mars is not very cerebral but just about raw physical urges that exist for the sake of just doing something.

Mars is not a thinker and thus able to act in too premature a way, resulting in some clashes and accidents.

Mars impulses are not steered properly and just lived out openly.

A predominant Mars makes for a very outgoing and spontaneous personality that tends to bump into somebody or something.

In matters of love, a predominant Mars will show someone who initiates and takes the first step.

A weak Mars (by sign) shows the opposite tendencies and is more hesitant and less spontaneous.

Mars is about raw energies and represents the purest physical and non-emotional, non-cerebral urges.

Therefore, Mars is linked to the sexual urges.

And for a reason because extravert and action-oriented Mars represents the penetrating force that is awaited by its counterpart, receptive Venus.

So, from this archetypal perspective, it's obvious that Mars needs to be interpreted differently in natal charts of women and men.

In the natal chart of women, Mars represents the archetypal male characteristics she longs for.

In the natal chart of a man, Mars primarily represents his work and job and secondarily his primal urges like his sex life.

Mars in the female chart

The archetypal picture of the man in a female chart can be delineated by looking at the position of Mars in the zodiac sign, house and its aspects and midpoints.

Below, we want to mention a couple of our findings that may help to delineate the Mars position.

Mars in Aries seeks the impulsive, even brash, 'primitive' man who loves speed. It can be an uncooperative and straightforward man.

Mars in Taurus is about the willful business-man, quite inert and set in his ways.

Mars in Gemini longs for a cerebral man with a keen intellect. He can be argumentative though.

Mars in Cancer adores home-loving men. They can be moody.

Mars in Leo loves a man of prominence or a man who is often in the spotlight. He needs to be gallant.

Mars in Virgo loves 'obedient' or subordinate men who are of service. It's a practical 'handy-man' who can be a workaholic though. In some instances he may be extremely critical.

Mars in Libra needs a mediator or diplomate and a distinguished or civilized man.

Mars in Scorpio loves a powerful and highly intense man who is able to share his passions. They can be reticent and jealous.

Mars in Sagittarius is always on the go so that a wanderer and/or a sports-minded man fits. Also, it's possible that the man is a foreigner or met in a foreign country. He should have quite some zeal.

Mars in Capricorn is about men in a uniform or who have positions in the corporate or political world. It's the dignified climber who loves to set boundaries.

Mars in Aquarius needs detached and independent men, who are often 'on the go.'

They should be cerebral and innovative and may have interests in humanitarian causes. They can be brusque though.

Mars in Pisces loves silent and more reclusive men. They should be very nature-loving but may face some addictions.

Of course, these delineations have to be blended with the aspects and house meanings.
