While most people think of Sun signs or Venus signs when it comes to zodiac compatibility, Mars, the planet of passion, can also play an important role in your relationships.

Your Mars sign shows what you love and who you are attracted to. Mars represents your ego, determination, and drive.

Mars is associated with arguing and fighting because of the intensity it brings to the natal chart.

Wherever Mars is located in your natal chart, it colors the energy of that astrology house and zodiac sign.


So, when Mars is in a particular zodiac sign, it controls your impulses and your willpower in that area. And when Mars is in transit during the year and conjuncts your natal Mars placement, it can ignite your natal chart.

Any decisions you are faced with will be met with a quick instinctive answer.

Mar conjunct natal Mars in Cancer

During this time it is important to take a step back and try to see your partner's point of view.

Self-awareness is key to making it through this time in a healthy relationship.

When Mars conjuncts natal Mars in Leo, it is a great time if you are single because you are going to be drawn to risky behavior and “single girl” choices.

Try to remind yourself of everything that you love about your partner and ignore the pull to go out and make poor choices.

It is a wonderful time for productivity, which for Virgos might be a euphoric spell of scheduling.

As much as you may enjoy this period of your life, it can be hard on your partner.

Even if you do manage to make enough time for them, it will be very scheduled and routine, making them feel like part of your job or an obligation.

Make sure you take the time to make them feel special. Try your hardest to find spontaneity with your partner as it could mean quite a lot to them.

Most of the time, Libras will swallow their anger and do anything to avoid confrontation.

If a Libra is ever going to tell you their true feelings are going to be during this time.

Mars conjunct natal Mars in Sagittarius

Mars in Sagittarius is a time of romantic restlessness.

If there is a problem, even a small one, the Sagittarius Mars native will use it as an excuse to jump ship.

Natives with this placement feeling burdened by their relationship should wait out this time and see how they feel when it passes.


Mars conjunct natal Mars in Capricorn

When Mars in Capricorn conjuncts your natal Mars, it is usually a time of relationship growth.

It is a time when Capricorn Mars people are ready to move to the next step, though this is usually more cerebral than romantic.

There is hope, however, as this time won’t last too long.
