The next planet out from the Sun after Earth, Mars was named for the Roman god of war. Traditionally, Mars was said to rule both Aries and Scorpio. Following its discovery Pluto was given rulership of Scorpio, although Mars is still said to have co-rulership.

Mars is associated with aggression, conflict, sexual energy and passion, and its energy is associated with protective and defensive mechanisms. Traditional rulerships are over fire, fever, burns, cuts, surgery, munitions, construction, iron and steel.
