Mars in Aquarius is a peculiar time because (let's face it) Aquarius is a peculiar sign!

Aquarius is concerned with innovation and avant-garde thinking, which can be a far cry from down-to-earth Mars. As Aquarius is also the humanitarian of the zodiac, this placement can absolutely be a great time to work on making the world a better place. Protests and petitions are a natural fit here as you strive to take the fight into the streets. It's also an excellent time to challenge any kind of conventional thinking that may be holding you back.

Mars in Aquarius Personality

Mars in Aquarius belongs to a different class entirely (and intentionally). They relish in their uniqueness and, as a result, are more open to—or more unbothered by—the idiosyncrasies of their fellow man. Don't take Aquarius Mars for the "anything goes" type. When pressed, they'll dust off their formidable intelligence to obliterate an opponent.

Positive Traits

Aquarius Mars' are the makers of movements though they'd push back against this designation. Their innate esteem for freedom makes them ideal activists and revolutionaries. Like their airy sibling Libra, justice and good causes ignite their fury. Though, unlike Libra, Aquarius Mars fury is more fixed.

Negative Traits

Mars in Aquarius has little patience for their less broad-minded peers. Because they engage in rebellion for rebellion's sake, these folks aren't necessarily the boss' or their coworkers' first pick for projects. In conjunction with their narrow viewpoints, they can be somewhat challenging to work with.
