Why Mars Matters

Motivation is the key behind the planet Mars.  Agression, activity, ambition, and anger are also attributes of the fiery planet.  We all have Mars in our charts somewhere and this placement determines what motivates us personally.  What drives you?  What is it that you want to accomplish?  What pushes your buttons?  What compels you?  On a grander scale, Mars is seen as the motivator behind global agression, especially when it is in a difficult angle to significant planets.  In this segment from the Turning of the Wheel archives, host, Chris Flisher discusses this ornery and motivating presence in our lives.  It is as relevant today as it was when it was recorded.
