Mars is an influential and radiant planet of red color. Because of its courageous nature, it is given the status of the commander-in-chief of the Devtas. In Lal Kitab Mars has been called the lion who rears goats, which means it gives strength to those who are weak .Its impact depends on its position in the native’s birth-chart.
The Nature and Characteristics of Mars in Lal Kitab
Mars is considered a planet of aggressive nature and in Lal Kitab, the 3rd house is considered the house of Mars. It is the lord of Aries and Capricorn. It is exalted in Capricorn and debilitated in Cancer. It is a friend of Sun, Moon and Jupiter and it is neutral with Venus, Saturn and Rahu. In Lalkitab Mars is hostile towards Mercury and Ketu. In the birth-chart, when Sun is combined with Mercury then Mars give benefic results. Mars has a neutral relationship with Sun but when Sun is combined with Saturn then it may have malefic effects. When Rahu aspects Mars in the birth-chart, then it will be inauspicious.
Mars has an enormous influence during adolescence. The organs of the body influenced by Mars are blood, bone marrow, liver, lips, chest and arms. The main areas of Mars are power, bravery, courage, anger, enmity, pride and jealousy. Therefore, this planet is known as planet of negative qualities and the person who has Mars in an unsuitable position will have these qualities. The relative of Mars is brother, hence, when Mars is in a benefic position then brothers get benefic results, but, when it is in a malefic position then brothers may face difficulties and problems.
Lal Kitab believes that Mars is a powerful and wise planet. It resides on the native’s navel. If Mars is benefic in the native’s birth chart then the person can utilize his powers for good work. If it is malefic then the native will utilize his powers for illegal work. If Mars is in a weak position in the native’s birth-chart then he will be less courageous and less confident.
