Updated on February 25, 2017

In Planets in Aries Part One, Ascendant and Mercury, I talked about Ascendant/Rising and Mercury in the sign of Aries. In this hub, Planets in Aries Part Two: Mars, Venus and Moon, I will be talking about mars, Venus, and moon in Aries. Again this does not specifically refer to the sun sign in Aries (some similarities may apply however). If you do not know your Mars, Venus, or Moon sign, you can run a natal chart (for free, type natal chart in google and plug in your birth data.)

Mars in Aries

Your Mars in Aries, in the planet of action, sexuality/sexual expression, and energy. Mars in fire signs creates a passionate, aggressive and individualistic person that can be direct, too direct at times. In my previous hub Planets in Aries Part One, Ascendant and Mercury, I talked about mercury in Aries. Well mars and mercury go hand and hand (they are like blood brothers in my opinion). Mercury is all about speaking and mars is about action. Mars shows what we are made of, past our words. This is more evident and obvious in Mars in Aries, and I will explain why.

Imagine if your mercury is in Aries, but your Mars is in Pisces. Your mercury in Aries when confronted with a situation will be honest and tell you exactly what they are thinking and feeling. Even so, imagine if you are put in a situation where you had to back up your words with action. A situation, let’s say like being in a physical fight. Mars in Pisces really isn’t about that at all. Pisces is all about peace and in Mars in Pisces will not fight and will not think to fight. It wouldn’t be a natural reaction to do so. Now imagine if it was reverse, your Mercury was in Pisces and your Mars in Aries. Here you will be someone that communicates in indirect ways and isn’t as honest and forthcoming as a mercury in Aries.

Mars in Aries

Even so, if they are called to act, they will oftentimes act, especially if you just think of those two planets acting together. Even so, astrology isn’t about this exactly, it is about thinking of the bigger picture and the individual picture together. Its about how all the planets work together, opposite and against each other. This is a more simple explanation of these two planets (mercury and mars) without the other factors/planets to consider.

What I am trying to say with my analogy is that Mars is the difference between all words and no action. Mars in Aries is all about action, especially with the fact that Aries is ruled by Mars. Mars in Aries is aggressive, competitive and combative. Mars in the fire signs and the earth signs will definitely be about direct action (that action can oftentimes include angry outbursts and physical altercations). Mars in Aries is particularly prone to angry outbursts and physical altercations. This is because they have a lot of energy (aggression to be particular) and they have to release it constantly like no other Mars sign. If they don’t release it in a positive way, this makes them angry/ overtly aggressive, violent people. If they can release it in a positive way such as through sports and athletics they can be a contributing and productive member of society.

Mars in Aries definitely gravitates towards sports and combat/contact activities. Football, karate, mix martial arts, whatever activity or sport that is tad violent and very competitive suits them. This can also relate to your choice profession, military, police officer, firefighter. This mars sign is all about action, all about going out and getting what they want. Impatient and individualistic they are not afraid to do things on their own (they actually prefer it).

Mars also governs sexuality and sexual expression Mars in Aries makes bold, passionate and aggressive lovers. Things in the bedroom will not be slow and gentle but fast and rough. This will definitely be part workout, part competition, and part exploration. Mars in Aries have no fears in expressing and playing out their raw sexual energy and they want someone that isn’t afraid either.

Venus in Aries

Venus is all about how we act in relationships. Venus in Aries is all about individuality and independence in relationships, which is part of the reason why Venus is in fall in Aries. Again Aries is ruled by Mars. Mars is competitive, forceful and highly individual and independent. Mars is also the god of war in mythology. Love is often thought of and define in the idealize Piscean/Neptune standard, aka love is the act of bending of two into one, something that is soft, delicate, fragile, of sacrifice and compassion. Venus in Aries is none of these things. Aries can be a pretty selfish sign (as with the other fire signs) and is definitely not soft, delicate, and fragile or acts/thinks in terms of sacrifice and compassion. This isn’t natural for this Venus sign.

Venus in Aries is confident, daring, and aggressive. They are the shameless flirters, the ones that do the pursuing (male or FEMALE). They can’t be tamed or held down. They do what they want when they want. It’s hard for them to lose their identities and sense of self in relationships. Remember that the Aries phrase is “I am” All of Aries placements is about asserting one’s self onto others and the world. Here, in Venus it is about assert oneself in relationships (with friends, family and lovers). They assert their self and their independence and individuality to others.


Moon in Aries

Your Moon is Aries, which means you are ruled by Mars. The moon governs emotions and it is extra fiery in Aries. Aries is a passionate and bold fire sign. Moon in Aries is energetic, bold, confident and brave. They are not afraid to express emotion, and are not afraid of a lot of things. They will try everything at least once and don’t have any hang-ups on a lot of things. Moon in Aries energy is magnetic and they are definitely fun to be around. Even so, Moon in Aries in my opinion is one of the more difficult Moon placements (Scorpio is bad and Capricorn is the worst). Moon in Aries is direct, honest (this is a good thing most of the time), though the moon is about emotions and our reactions to things. This can in turn translate into Aries moon acting out in a very hot-tempered, childish and violent way. Not all the time, but there will definitely be a natural tendency to gravitate towards these crazy, extreme reactions. They may act on impulse and do a lot of crazy, damaging things without thinking of themselves and others. They are very much about the here and now, and can be very selfish, translating into a mix of bad decisions, bad habits, and a lack of regard and consideration for others and their feelings/emotions.

Even so, Moon in Aries is governed by one of the more positive zodiac signs, with constantly moving energy and the ability to learn from their mistakes. It may take them a few times but they will get it and won’t do it again.


Overall this concludes the Planets in Aries series. Thank You
