Mars is the planet of passion, the red and fiery planet of action. While Mars was the god of war, putting Mars to good use means making love, because Mars also rules sexuality and lust. Activate Mars when you want to take action with your partner. Whether you need to fight or make up, knowing their Mars sign will help you understand how to best approach either end of the spectrum.
Mars in Air – Engage the Mind
Gemini – Mars probably invented phone sex. Run with this inspiring thought by thinking of new ways to play with language that turn you both on. When they get angry, be prepared for a verbal display of unprecedented wit. They may not be loud, but they will be amusing and lethal at the same time. Imagine an irritated Shakespeare crossed with Bob Dylan, as the ultimate expression of Mars energy shining through Gemini.
Aquarius – Mars may just be the kinkiest, barring Mars in Scorpio, as they have a certain detachment around how they experience the physical nature of lovemaking. Aquarius Mars wants to try new positions and sexual concepts and to experiment with the boundaries of lovemaking. This Mars will also be the first to dedicate their orgasm towards creating world peace.
Libra – Mars is more Tantra than leather, enjoying sex as a part of the romance, a yummy main course in the feast of relationship. Creating beauty, harmony and an environment of serenity as a backdrop for lovemaking (not sex, but lovemaking), will please and soothe this Mars. You may never know they are angry until they’ve left you, so paying extra attention to subtle clues is important.
Mars in Water – Engage the Emotions
Cancer – Mars enjoys eye contact, soft caresses and kissing. Bonding with Mars in Cancer in an emotional way will open them up and turn them on.

Scorpio – Mars have both an intuitive sense of how to please and also know what they like. So pick up on their non-verbal cues and trust your gut, as this connection is a transformative one. A passionate, intense approach initiates an equally powerful response. Subtle energy play beginning long before any physical touching takes place, is the type of foreplay most pleasing to Mars in Scorpio.
Pisces – Mars particularly appreciate music and a gently imaginative touch with their intimate connections. Weave a fairy tale story for your lovemaking, a kind of magical narrative that sweeps you both along and you will leave your Mars in Pisces wanting more, wondering what happens next in the sexy story of your connection.
Mars in Fire – Engage in Action
Sagittarius – Mars is bold, adventurous and ready to go. Laughter may be the best medicine, but in the case of Mars in Sagittarius, it’s also the best aphrodisiac.

This Mars has a hearty, healthy appetite when it comes to sex and the arts of love.
Leo – Mars thrives on plenty of appreciation and praise. Grand and luxurious gestures in your lovemaking, role-playing and a touch of drama will make this big cat purr. Safely arrange to have sex in front of an appreciative audience (home videos) you may see some remarkable performances from Mars in
Leo. At the very least, their warm heart and generous spirit will make for an affectionate and loving time.
Aries – Mars probably initiated the Mile High Club. Daring, adventurous and thriving on risk taking, this Mars approaches the lusty arts with gusto and a touch of competition. Their direct and forceful nature may be tempered for more gentle times, but they do appreciate those moments when it’s all about clothes flying, nail scratching and loud and juicy sex.
Mars in Earth – Engage the Body
Virgo – Mars loves the details, such as small, careful touches, with a connoisseur’s approach to the body. This Mars appreciates focused and discriminating attention during lovemaking. They love pleasing you, demonstrating a skillful understanding of what is most exciting and effective.
Taurus – Mars has an earthy straightforwardness. Taurus appreciates some predictability in lovemaking. Music, nature and food provide a familiar structure without falling into a rut. Some Mars in Taurus would almost prefer a massage to intercourse.
Capricorn – Mars is patient and persistent, with an ability to make love for long periods of time without need for rest. Like the other Mars earth signs, providing a natural backdrop for passionate interludes is a welcome gesture. Their desire may build slowly, so don’t expect a lot of action right away, but once activated it endures for substantial periods.
