Mars rules the pungent taste, foods high in protein & iron, meat, red lentils, and stimulants like tea, coffee and strong liquor. Herbs that cool and build the blood and muscles soothe a strong, heated mars. Fiery herbs work well when we need a little motivation.
Mars is fire. He is hot and heated like the sun, he is a planet of energy and passion. The strength of Mars enables us to project both ourselves and our emotions into the world with vigour and excitement. He represents our desires and gives us the vitality and stamina to bring them to fruition.
