A series of artworks created to help me better understand my natal astrology and the powerful possibilities in my birth timing. For those of you interested in such things about moi: Mars in Scorpio / 2nd House
Mars in Scorpio
"Real living, to Mars in Scorpio, is all about accepting challenges and making changes.
Mars in Scorpio natives love to challenge themselves to do the impossible. They throw themselves into what they decide to do with concentrated energy and awesome willpower. These people make formidable opponents, although often quietly so. They keep their cool and their equilibrium on the surface. Below the surface may be another story, and they are unlikely to easily let you in. Mars in Scorpio has the potential to exploit others—these people see through others, and rely heavily on their gut feelings." ~ Cafe Astrology
Mars in the 2nd House
"Mars in the second house energises someone’s earning capacities. As long as Mars is in a sign that he feels fairly comfortable with (ie. Scorpio) someone with this placement certainly has the skills and knowledge and energy to accumulate some capital wealth, collect valuable art and other treasuries.
The 2nd house also rules one’s speech, so this is an excellent placement for professions where the voice is what others remember the most such singing, preaching if Pisces or Sagittarius is strong in the chart or public speaking... On the one hand, Mars in the 2nd house makes someone sound very enthusiastic, energised, inspirational and dynamic and on the other, someone with this placement can sound abrupt, impatient and a little rude and poorly timed. Sometimes saying the wrong things at the wrong time can be a typical Mars-in-the-second-house trait if there are no mitigating factors." ~ BrightStarAstrology
