The Force

Mars has a reputation for trouble as both the destroyer and renewer.  Mars is a force mightier than gravity than can stimulate the human imagination like no other.  A tendency to sever ties and separate alliances.  On the upside, the planet Mars is about desire and virility, the exertion of a life force that is the will to survive and can be manifested in many ways from a bloodthirsty lover of violence to a great protector of civilization and guardian of agriculture and protecting harvest, which sustains lives.  Whether Mars energy destroys or protects, it is done with passion
