Mars in Pisces
If you have Mars in Pisces, your energies and aggressions tend to come out in non-combative and noncompetitive ways. You are a bit of a pacifist and do not enjoy tackling anyone or anything head-on in a directly confrontational manner. Working around people or situations or working behind the scenes, in secret, is more your preferred style. If necessary, it is more your tendency to give up something rather than to fight for it. Because your ego is not especially interested in personal achievement, glorification, material advantage, or winning at the expense of someone else, you may come across to others as weak-willed or ineffectual. Being on top, being the best, or being first doesn’t mean much to you, hence you can be quite happy in a supporting role, working for the benefit of others or for a cause that you believe in.
You may experience difficulties in planning clear and definite goals for yourself in the real world. You are not sure what you want out of life, except you instinctively seem to know that you do have and need to find a spiritual purpose. You have many dreams, high ideals, and a strong mystical or religious impulse. You also have a creative imagination and can successfully apply yourself to art or music. You are intuitive, humorous and diplomatic, quiet on the outside, but restless within. On the negative side you can be indecisive, procrastinating, too interested in the sensual side of life, and may resort to using drugs or alcohol as a way to escape the pressures and responsibilities of dealing with everyday life. Learning self-control is important for you. Take action, don’t only day-dream.
Mars in Pisces is a good placement for musicians, dancers, renunciates, sailors, or people whose lives deal with the sea or maritime affairs; but otherwise you tend to lack direction and perseverance in attaining your personal goals. You have the capacity, however, to synthesize many aspects of a complex situation; and, since your intentions are naturally covert or hidden, this makes you an excellent strategist. You may not be physically strong and can be very restless. There’s a tendency to instability with Mars in Pisces, so alcohol and drugs are ill advised. Intuitive, sensitive and idealistic, you’re driven to go beyond the material world to spiritual or mystical realms where all are one; but in the process you may get lost in the clouds.
