A peaceful fire is one that burns deep. It is the source of the soul and the motive of spirit. Astrologically, fire is ultimately represented by the planet Mars, and epitomizes motive, desire, action, drive, impetus, ambition and all action-oriented forward motion. “Find out what motivates a person and you will understand the individual;” so believed Marc Edmund Jones, one of the foremost astrologers of his time. Jones used Mars as the first point in understanding and interpreting the astrological chart of the individual. He believed that if you understand the motivation of an individual, you will understand the person. Peaceful or not, the fire burns at some level in all of us and drives us forward. Find the motive and you will find the answer.
Mars vobiscum – Mars be with you
