Results of Mars in Aquarius

Ambitious & Desirous

The 11th disposition formed by Mars in Aquarius signifies ambitions and highest aspirations because the 11th house belongs to the triangle of desires.

At the same time, Mars is the planet of action, will-power, determination, and initiation. Accordingly, individuals with this combination are especially ambitious and are therefore highly motivated to take action to attain their goals.

The fact that Aquarius is a fixed sign increases the level of determination and perseverance of these natives. When they make a decision, they stick to it and it is nearly impossible to change their mind, whether their idea or aspiration is good-natured or not.

With that being said, the dignity of Saturn determines whether their determination is motivated by good-natured ambitions or not. More specifically, if Saturn is dignified, it indicates that their intentions are good-natured.

That is because Saturn is the justice-loving planet of karma and when it is dignified, it ensures that the ambitions of natives with this combination are based on good intentions towards the community or people.

When a strong Saturn guides the actions of Mars, they use fair, legal, and ethical tactics to attain their goals. They are determined to fulfill their karma or responsibility in life through their ambitions.

With that being said, when they have pure intentions, they are blessed to have their highest desires fulfilled as they accumulate positive karma through their pious actions.

On the contrary, if Saturn is undignified, it creates a completely different person. Namely, individuals with this set of combinations and misguided energies of Mars are determined to fulfill desires that are motivated by impure, unethical, or even sinful intentions.

For instance, they can be very determined to cause harm to others because of excessive greed and jealousy. In addition to that, their excessive materialistic desires can motivate them to attempt to attain their selfish goals through illegal activities.

Classical source Saravali states that Aquarius Mars natives are miserable, materialistic, and greedy.

This effect is likely to manifest if the guide of Mars, which is Saturn in this case, is ill-placed or undignified.

When the 11th house in Vedic astrology is negatively expressed, greed and materialism come to the fore.

Excessive greed must be avoided or it can damage their mindset which further leads to becoming very miserable, jealous, and resented.


Aquarius is the 11th zodiac sign which is all about uniqueness, unconventional, out-of-the-box, and eccentric. The 11th disposition formed by Mars in Aquarius intensifies these energies greatly.

As a result, individuals with this combination are very inventive and ingenious. Mars, the planet of action enhances their power of imagination and creative out-of-the-box thinking.

These natives perform exceptionally well when getting the chance to work with ideas and harness their eccentric way of thinking.

The fire element of Mars gets highly amplified by the air element of Aquarius. These two elements match perfectly by increasing each other. More oxygen enables the fire to expand exponentially.

The reason why their thinking is influenced is hidden behind the 4th disposition, which is the natural domain of Moon-ruled Cancer, which signifies mind.

If a dignified Saturn guides Mars in Aquarius, it indicates that these individuals are capable of inventing ingenious ideas on how to improve the community or their surroundings.

Their actions become motivated by humanistic goals that are given to them by strong Saturn. They have great respect for humanity, especially their community which consists of highly like-minded people.

They also harness their socializing skills within the groups of their interests which allows them to be open to the ideas of others as well. When they integrate their ideas with the ones of other people, they can come up with brilliant solutions on how to solve issues or improve life.

A dignified Saturn also ensures that the communities in which they involve themselves consist of people with the same good intentions and selfless humanistic ideas.

They perform flawlessly in activities related to the complex system of networks, which is signified by the 11th disposition.

For example, they can become brave activists who fight for a cause that protects the rights of a certain group of people. They can also perform well in activities related to complex digital networks (11th).

On the contrary, if Saturn is undignified, the actions and ideas of these individuals are motivated by selfish goals and greed. This means that they are bereft of humanistic worldviews and are therefore capable of using unethical or unfair tactics in order to push their ideas forward.

They are also inclined to work with groups of people who are also unethically aligned and willing to cause harm to others in order to satisfy selfish desires. Together with negatively like-minded people, these natives are inclined to invent unusual tactics in an attempt to attain their impure goals.

As per the law of karma, bad intentions fail sooner or later. The later, the harder the failure will be and the more damage it causes to the natives and their surroundings.

The negatively manifested 4th disposition provides them with an impure and immoral mentality. As the 4th disposition comes from Scorpio, these natives often use secret knowledge and hidden tactics in their attempts.

It is advised for such individuals to concentrate on positive energies and pure intentions as this ensures that the precious energy of Mars is not wasted on fruitless (read sinful) pursuits.

By developing more pious intentions, not only that their mental peace would be restored, but also their dignity and reputation would improve. This will ultimately open up more flow of abundance in their lives.

Hidden Emotions

As the 4th disposition comes from secretive Scorpio, it indicates that these individuals often hide their emotions which can build up great inner stress over time.

A strong Saturn also blesses them with lots of supportive people around who offer great moral support to them.

While they still remain hot-tempered, they learn how to direct these energies correctly. The best way to exhaust these inner flames is to socialize with like-minded people as much as possible.

With that being said, they become emotionally intelligent as they understand their feelings and know how to identify them. It is easier to overcome negative emotions if they are acknowledged and labeled.

On the contrary, if an undignified Saturn misguides Mars, it gives these natives tend to hide and suppress all the feelings which make the inner stress overwhelming over time.

The emotional pain may lead to a situation where they become socially withdrawn, emotionally agitated, and sorrowful. The unbearable emotional stress also reflects their loss of interest in self-care.

When Saturn weakens Mars, it also causes a loss of valor which gives room for various fears to overtake their mind. The main cause of concern for these natives is that they do not want to open up their vulnerable spots because of the fear of being attacked.

It is highly advised for these natives to try to open up to someone they trust and not hold grudges inside for a prolonged period because this may cause damage to mental health.

Otherwise, if they can not overcome the stress, it may cause them to become emotionally manipulative.

As Mars is the planet of protection and service, they have an urge to protect and serve their own community. It also means that they are willing to bring personal sacrifices for the sake of their own people, roots, and traditions.
