Mars in 1st House

Updated: Dec 23, 2021

MARS IN 1st HOUSE Sutras 1-9-If Mars is in the Ascendant the native will have wound marks in the body or marks left behind by boils. The native will have a stout body, will have stealing habit, a big navel and reddish hands. He will be cruel, strong, stupid, of angry temperament, extraordinarily valourous, wealthy, unstable and he will suffer from peculiar diseases, sufferer of mental troubles. He will also be of wicked disposition. If Mars is in his own signs (Aries or Scorpio) or is exalted.(is in Capricorn), the native will be healthy and of strong constitution, and will get honours from Government enhancing his reputation. He will also be long lived. If Mars is in conjunction with a malefic or enemy planet, the native will be short lived, will have few children, will have an ugly appearance and will suffer from diseases and pains on account of rheumatism. If Mars is exalted in the Ascendant, the native will be wealthy and will be fond of sight seeing. If Mars is associated with or aspected by malefic or is in enemy sign, the native will suffer from eye diseases. Comments-Mars is a hot, dry cruel and malefic planet. Mars makes the native quarrelsome and of aggressive nature. It is on this account that the native will have wound marks on the body when Mars is in the ascendant. His aggressive nature makes him powerful but stupid. When he loses his temper he forgets what is right and what is wrong. If Mars is in either of his two signs or is exalted he becomes a functional benefic in the horoscope and will give the native good health, strong body, honours from Government, good reputation, wealth and high education. When Mars is in one of his two signs or is exalted while being posited in the ascendant, Ruchaka yoga (one of the Panchamahapurusha yoga) is formed, the effect of which has been given as under by Prof. B.V. Raman in his book Three Hundred Important Combinations’:-”The person born in Ruchaka will have a strong physique, he will be famous, well versed in folk lore, king or an equal to king, conforming to traditions and customs. He will have a ruddy complexion, attractive body, charitable disposition, long lived and leader of an army.” If there is evil influence on Mars, the native will suffer from eye diseases and rheumatic troubles. As Mars will lose much of his vitality, the native will have few children. Other Views Brihat Jataka-The person concerned will have an injured limb. Phaldeepika-The native will be very cruel and courageous. He will be short lived and will get injuries in his body. Saravali-The native will be cruel, courageous, stupid, short lived, proudy, valourous, handsome and of unstable mind. Chamatkar Chintamani-Lathi (objects made of iron and fire) will be source of danger to the life of the native. He will remain worried and will suffer from the loss of his wife, children etc. However courageous he may be, he will have to face evil consequences from his actions. Note-All the above authorities have described the effects of a malefic Mars in the ascendant. They have not given the good effects of Mars when he becomes a functional benefic by being in his own sign or in exaltation or by becoming lord of auspicious houses (For Cancer and Leo ascendants, he is lord of 5th and 10th houses, and 4th and 9th houses respectively and is considered as yoga karaka par excellence. For Sagittarius ascendant being lord of the auspicious 5th house (and twelfth) and for Pisces ascendant being lord of the 2nd and the 9th, Mars in the ascendant will be beneficial to a great extent).
