11 Jun How to be Successful – Mars
Mars, the raw power and brute force that supplies passion and courage to all your endeavours. While the Sun gives you the life force to live and sustain your life, Mars shall be the catalyst for you to achieve anything that you want. With a weak Mars, a little setback is all it takes for you to sway you away from your goal. Whatever your ambition and passion is, Mars wields the power to dominate and head towards the direction of your destination. At the same time, Mars is aggressiveness and dominion, and it can be dangerous. What is stopping you from achieving your goals? How do you utilise the power of Mars to be a true Martian? How can you be successful? How can you be a winner?
Mars is your commander-in-chief of your life. He is probably the most important factor in your success and all your endeavours. He is the elite soldier that will carry out your orders. Even if the little hero breaks an arm or loses a leg, he will fight to death until the mission that you have given him is accomplished. He supplies the brute force behind your actions.
If your Mars is weak, you probably will not do much to change your life. Your life becomes stale no matter what because there is no actions. Without actions, there is no results and your life becomes very predictable. Yesterday is today, today is tomorrow. Everyday routine is to wake up, have breakfast, go to work, have lunch, work for a little more, go back home, take a bath/shower, have dinner, have a little entertainment, and go to bed. It is so routine that you have unconsciously become a zombie without knowing. You have forgotten the big picture and what life is about. As your life drifts away, you did not have a single moment of happiness to do what you want. We can follow the examples of the strong positions of Mars to expand your Martian energy. When the time comes for a life shift, don’t be afraid and wake up your Martian power to give you all the courage and confidence that you need. May you have a strong Mars!
Mars in Capricorn
Mars is exalted in Capricorn. Capricorn is the original 10th house of the zodiac. 10th house is the strongest of the kendra house, and it lit up bright in the noon sky. Any planets here is strong, least to say Mars in 10th house. Mars also has directional strength (dig bala) in the 10th house. Unless Mars is weak in sign, it shall give you the prowess and fighting spirit in your success in career. Business owners can become entrepreneurs in their respective field. You shall have the courage to seize the perfect opportunity when it comes to you. You are your own boss in life and in career.
You are daring enough to grab the opportunity comes to you and not let it slips by. Opportunity does not come randomly by chance, but it comes to you at the right timing. After careful planning and analysis and not procrastination, it is the determination of Mars that will give you results. Carpe diem. Success is yours.
Mars in Aries
Mars in Aries makes Mars your whole well-bring. Aries is the original 1st house of the zodiac, representing yourself and your personality. Instead of exhibiting the negative qualities of Mars as aggressiveness, hatred and violence, bring out the good qualities of Mars of self-assertiveness, independence, and the drive and determination into your life. Keep yourself fit. Mars in 1st house makes a good athlete. Keep fighting for your goals. You can’t win without a fight. Even a little seed has to fight for its life to push against the soil. Mars is the zest of life.
Demolish all fear for most of the time you attract the object of fear itself. Fear grows in the heart and retains the memory of the failures in the past. Fear comes from the unknown of the future that has not yet happened. Drop the memory of the past and the imagination of the future. Divert your attention to any harmless activities. Concentrate on your courage and power within. As long as you are alive, there is always hope. Even when you are dead, nothing else matters. So draw your life force from your solar plexus within, bring out the bravery side of you. Without guidance, Mars can be in a rush. Don’t act on impulse. Think and decide before you act. Be a smart Martian for it is the thinking mind behind all the muscles at work.
Mars in Scorpio
Scorpio is the original 8th house of the zodiac. 8th house is the most feared house of all and it is ruled by Mars. It is a house which is hard to comprehend. Since it is a difficult house, Mars will supply you the courage to pull through it. 8th house is the house of death and transformation. Your Mars must be guided with wisdom. Without consciously applying your Martian energy, the negative qualities side of Mars can appear like aggressiveness, arrogance, and violence. There will be obstacles to overcome and you draw your courage to overcome it with the profound knowledge and deep intelligence of the 8th house. Mars is also sharp and deep intelligence. 8th house gives talents in research. Without the 8th house, there will be no Albert Einstein or Stephen Hawking. 8th house is also charisma. Use your charismatic influence and your soul shall attract like-minded souls to help in your conquest.
8th house includes hidden things in life or things that are highly unspoken of in the public. It can include your secret and private life like the amount of money that you have in the bank, your sexual partners and desires, alcohol and drugs addictions. Mars being the planet of passion here can be dangerous. Be careful of these hidden booby traps in life lurking to wait for you to sink in it. It will take extreme perseverance and discipline to overcome these traps. The advantage of it is the intensity and passion in the 8th house. Mars being the planet of passion supplies you with unlimited passion with the 8th house energy to accomplish whatever desires you have deep in your heart. Without passion in life, any action that you take is pointless and lifeless. Light up the fire of passion in you once again! Passion is the fuel of your success.
Mars in Upachaya houses
Mars does extremely well in the Upachaya houses of 3, 6, 11. Upachaya houses are houses of improvement with specific obstacles present in the 3rd and 6th house. Mars gives you the courage and discipline to take actions against all your obstacles. Situations in life will start out bad but it will improve over time with your own efforts when Mars are in the 3rd and 6th house. 11th house is generally a desired house for fulfilling your wishes and desires. Mars in 11th house will always fight for your hopes and dreams throughout.
8 houses from the 8th house of passion is the 3rd house of willpower. Make a breakthrough with your passion by the power of your will. No force is greater than willpower to overcome all your obstacles. When you are a level 3 man presented with a level 5 problem, you shall rise to be a level 5 man after overcoming the test. When you are a level 7 man given a level 10 problem, you shall bloom to be a level 10 man after that. When you don’t learn and remain as a level 3 man given a level 10 problem and off you go. The game of life shall break you. Know that you shall never be given a problem that you cannot overcome. When you become a level 10 man, you shall overcome all impediments and stand against the tests and tribulations of life.
You cannot do anything without willpower. If you say you cannot do something, you have sabotaged the power of will within you. Willpower can be developed by doing something subtle and simple daily. Undertake a simple task every day that you say you will not do or cannot do. If you want something, will it!
Under an article written by Bronnie Ware on the top 5 regrets of the dying, the foremost and most common regret of her patients is “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” The day will come when you review your life and realized that you didn’t take up the opportunity to change your life for the better. Your life becomes a combination of expectations of others around you instead of doing what you really wanted to do and what you were really meant to do.
With the power of free will, act gallantly to be in charge of your life. Don’t forget the life force within you is more capable than you think. From the power of Capricorn, Aries, and Scorpio, Mars is telling you to Fight and Live with Passion. Bring out the little hero from within and you shall once again know that it is wonderful to live.
[It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.]
