Mars represents the thrill of the hunt, or the aliveness you feel when you are exerting all you have in order to win. In your birth chart, it is your passion in motion.
Mars Symbol: Keys to Creativity and Passion
Mars symbol represents male sexual penetration. Thus the energy Mars symbolizes is intimately tied to your creative impulse (its pursuit of Venusian beauty and ideals results in the creation of something new.)
By reflecting on this symbol, we can appreciate a few components of creativity:
1) Penetration: Digging deeply into one’s chosen field of study is a masculine quality (regardless of your gender). The idea of penetration suggests deep involvement with a subject or a person, not just on an intellectual (Mercurial) level. In other words, creativity comes from deep involvement.
It’s very difficult to experience passionate creativity when you are just scratching the surface of things. If you want to experience more creativity, try going deeper into your path (work, hobby, relationship, etc) instead of jumping from one thing to another. [Note Mars’ classic rulership of Scorpio reflects this idea of masculine depth and fixedness of purpose.]
