Symbol Of Mars – The Planet Of War And Fire
Mars is a planet of dubious reputation. It is often referred to as the “planet of fire” because for its red color. Also, it’s commonly known as the planet of war, in connection with the Roman god Mars (Ares in Greek mythology) god of the war. But what not everyone knows is the ability of this planet to face the issues of life and death.
In fact, the planet has significant influences in understanding our vision of what we need more or less. This planet is associated with the sign of Aries. Aries is the sign of spring and symbol of the new beginnings, birth and initiation. Mars also has links to the sign of the Scorpio which is the sign of the fall of his planet symbolizing the abandonment, death and the submerged or deep.
These symbols make Mars the symbol of the rhythms of the cycles of life and death. On the one hand, we have the driving forces of the new beginnings. This followed by periods of reflective withdrawal and initiatory death for the things that are no longer needed.
The analogy of the war or fire planet indicates being honest with yourself. In fact, the energy of Mars forces us to confront our deepest and darkest secrets (propensity of Scorpio) and making us lead towards the understanding of the core of our shadows.
On the contrary, this planet will resurrect some topics in our life and working with this planet will allow us to see, renew, our understanding of who we are, in the context of our most mysterious essence. The red planet of war rejects and attracts. Thus anyone will need to focus in their mind when having to do with its energy.
The symbol of Mars is a representation of the shield and spear of the Roman god of war, Mars. Incorporate this symbol when you want to “go to battle.”
