A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Mars in Libra, so the description given here may change for you if your Mars is although in the sign of Libra but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Mars can do in Libra without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Mars represents our will power, courage, ability to take actions, aggressive nature, anger, our fighting ability, brother, male friends, a boy friend for a girl, a soldier, an athlete and real estate etc.
Libra is the 7th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the energy and things related with 7th house of horoscope, i.e. market place, business, partnerships, relations etc. Basically Libra is sign of relationships. Libra is consisted of another 2 and half Nakshatra named Chitra, Swati and Vishakha. Libra's lord is Venus.
So now Mars is in the balancing sign of Libra, where his actions and energy will be directed towards bringing balance in society, country and relations. As this is a sign which basically represents relationship, you can find people with this position of Mars engaged in mediating jobs in relations. Now, this Mars is not as aggressive as it was in earlier signs so far or we can say it is applying all its aggressiveness in bringing balance in society and relations. Now, this is peace-loving Mars. This position can also make a person lawyer, but this lawyer is more interested in bringing people together rather than creating a dispute between them. This can also show a peace-loving diplomat who wants to bring peace between two sides. As Libra is ruled by Creative and Beautiful Venus and Mars is significator of construction, this position can make someone good builder or interior designer. It is still a good position for Mars though Mars is not very comfortable with Venus ruled signs.
Things which may impact Mars' effect in Libra are obviously different Nakshatras Mars may be positioned. If Mars' is in Chitra Nakshatra, then Mars is comfortable in its own nakshatra. If Mars is in Swati Nakshatra, then Swati's lord Rahu will impact Mars' result. Similarly, if Mars is in Vishakha Nakshatra, then Jupiter will impact Mars' result as Vishakha's lord.
Now, the biggest make or break situation with this placement will come with Venus position as Venus is lord of Libra. So, if Mars is in Libra and Venus is placed in Virgo, that's when person may find lots of obstacles and troubles in making relations as Venus is in its Debilitated sign in Virgo. On the other hand if Venus is in Libra itself along with Mars or in Pisces, then it is a much better scenario for Mars to work. That's why it is most important to read a chart on a whole.
Tomorrow, Mars in Scorpio.
