There is mentioned in ancient scriptures of Vedic astrology that these natives achieve the status of the king, head, ruler, or manager in their society or work area.

The 6th disposition also signifies coworkers, teammates, and subordinates. At the same time, Mars is the main planet of leadership.

Therefore, the positioning of Mars in Aries also amplifies the ability to take action and initiate new movements to motivate their team effectively.

Powerful Intuition

Their exceptionally strong intuition is provided by Mars which naturally rules over 1st and 8th zodiac signs which denote intelligence and intuition respectively. Accordingly, this combination is great support for the Sun and Moon, which represent intelligence and power of mind respectively.

Extremely Strong & Confident

Not only that they are resourceful, analytical, and decisive, but also physically very strong. That is because both Mars and Aries signify physical strength and vitality.

As Mars is strong in Aries, these natives are also blessed with good physical strength and vitality which helps them to endure even under heavy stress.

Their physical strength is further enhanced by increased vitality and self-confidence, which the 1st zodiac sign Aries is all about.

Being confident also implies that they have a strong belief in their ideas and what they do. In fact, the 1st disposition and 1st zodiac sign Aries belong to the triangle of righteousness.

As Mars is dignified, it ensures that their ideas and mentality remain righteous. What is more, being honest and truthful is what endows them with divine strength and courage whenever needed.

Moreover, what proves their genuine confidence is that they also uplift others without fearing losing out. When they believe in themselves, they do not have to artificially bring others down to appear better than others.

To support their confidence, they also exercise regularly which helps to maintain physical strength as well as mental discipline.

While they are confident, they are also able to protect themselves from arrogant people who try to bring them down. They refuse to be ill-treated and clearly say so, even if it requires a more strict voice.

They let others know that they respect themselves and therefore set boundaries on how they should be treated.

With that being said, individuals with this combination also respect others the same way they like to be treated.

Valorous & Competitive

The prosperity and rewards never come easily, even to individuals with Mars in Aries. What sets them apart from others is that they are not afraid of failures which makes them driven to persist until succeeding.

They are able to leverage failures by taking them as the biggest lessons. Instead of giving up easily, with the help of setbacks, they gain a lot of valuable information to improve themselves and eventually prosper even further than initially planned.

Speaking of which, the strong 6th disposition (challenges, obstacles)indicates that these natives have a lot of challenges and obstacles on their path.

The blessings of almighty God help these natives to overcome these difficult situations and obstacles with ease.

The obstacles they have manifest as blessings in disguise which help them to grow thicker skin and become more resistant. These individuals see obstructions as barriers to overcome instead of giving up.

This, in turn, enables them to become prosperous and undefeatable in the long run. This effect is provided by the energies of the 6th disposition that positively signify discipline, the power to confront issues, and resistance to stress.

It is also mentioned in Yavan Jataka that these natives are courageous and powerful to an extent that offenders are unable to assail them. This is another great manifestation of the invisible protection of Aries Mars natives.

The secret is that they stand for truth and righteousness. By doing that, God stands with them and endows them with unlimited power.

The power to confront issues involves the courage to face reality and deal with arising issues directly to solve them as quickly as possible.

With that being said, they are extremely fearless as well as Mars is the natural significator of courage. However, their courage does not come just by itself. It requires a lot of mental discipline and the ability to confront the arising fears.

By doing this, they develop the immense valor within which is further amplified by their strong sense of righteousness and divine faith in what they do.

With that being said, they deeply acknowledge their fear and analyze what causes it in order to get rid of the root cause of it. At the same time, they know that it is normal and nothing to be ashamed of.

After all, fear is a natural part of life. The only difference that sets courageous people apart from others is that they do not ignore this feeling and face it.

Fond Of Battles

Many classical sources also state that Aries Mars natives are fond of war and adventures whose confidence and best traits are expressed in battles.

The 6th disposition represents disputes, fights, litigation, opposition, and the ability to confront. With strong Mars endowing this disposition with strength, it shows having a strong inclination to confront and put in tremendous effort to win various battles in life.

Because both the 6th disposition and Mars are directly related to fighting through obstacles, these natives feel naturally comfortable in battles.

What makes them also very prosperous in challenging battles, is their ability to remain calm even when some of them are terrified within. They maintain strict order and discipline when disaster or disorder strikes which allows execution of the best decisions leading out of such situations victoriously.

With the amplified courage reflected by Mars in its own sign, these natives do not shrink in fear but remain headstrong and face all their evil opponents without even considering giving up.

As Mars and Aries signify, nothing makes them feel more fulfilled than fighting for truth, justice, and righteousness (will of God).

Supportive Allies

The 6th house is deeply interlinked with the 11th house of large groups, friends, communities, and fulfillment of desires. More specifically the 11th house is 6th place from the 6th house.

This connection shows that fulfilled desires require lots of discipline, hard work, overcoming obstacles, etc.

Another important signification of the 6th disposition is the “enemy of the enemy”. This connection is also derived through the Bhavat Bhavam (from house to house) technique where the enemy (6th) of the enemy (6th) is the 11th house.

A well-formed 6th disposition herein shows the great ability of Aries Mars natives to form supportive and profitable alliances with whom to win battles and fulfill great ambitions.

What is more, forming alliances comes naturally to Aries Mars natives because they are driven by the mentality to serve and protect (6th house). It also means that they are prone to give more than to take.

As per the law of nature and righteousness (Dharma) giving is the highest form of selflessness which attracts divine support from both the almighty and alliances.

Through helping others we help ourselves is another major driving attitude in their lives which grants them the necessary help at the right time.

In other words, they are able to form strong bonds which consist of both tangible and intangible values that keep alliances unshakable and strong throughout time.

When they are inclined to give, they build strong trust with their allies and the latter is willing to give them back at any time.

Many Enemies & Adversities

Speaking of obstacles and fears, these natives are prompted to face many enemies throughout life to the extent that it becomes completely normal for them. This is also the reason that makes them very competitive in the first place.

Mars rules two signs in astrology, Aries and Scorpio. Mars in Aries is in the 6th sign/house from its other sign Scorpio.

The 6th house belongs to Dusthana Bhava or houses of hardships and signifies disputes, jealousy, opposition, and wars. Mars in Aries becomes stronger and so does the significance of the 6th disposition in Vedic astrology.

As Mars is dignified, their ability to compete and defeat opposition becomes equally as strong. Enemies are meant for them so that they can practice and become wiser, more strategic, and stronger over time.

Accordingly, Aries Mars natives are naturally prompted to deal with many enemies and lots of opposition. Equally, they get to experience a lot of jealousy and envy from their many opponents.

Despite this being very frustrating for Aries Mars natives, they manage to overcome the adversity caused by numerous opponents efficiently. A strong Mars in Aries signifies having heavenly guards providing a great amount of mental and physical strength.

They are not blessed because all went right, but because they got a chance to fight.

Team Fearless

It means that they do not expect miracles to happen by themselves, but through sincere devotion, discipline, hard work, and sacrifice.

Aries Mars natives are naturally inclined to sacrifice their comfort zones, their resources, and time in order to battle adversities and never give up at the same time.

Fiery Mentality

They are said to be fierce in mentality and fond of wars and adventures, as per old Vedic astrology texts. It is so because Mars is a fiery planet of courage, valor, and aggression in its own sign.

Hence, such people are naturally brave and fond of winning all quarrels, litigations, and even wars. It is because they truly believe in what is right and ready to protect justice even when it means war.

They possess great inner and physical strength which gives them abundant endurance to win over the enemy with righteousness.

Kind & Charitable

Even though Aries Mars natives have that natural aggression and fiery straightforward attitude, they are very caring and kind.

Their aggression is often intense because of their unshakable respect for righteousness. When considering the fact that there are so many unethical deeds done, it is clear why they appear so frustrated and agitated often. They simply can not stand unjust acts and are not willing to accept unrighteousness.

With that being said, they are always having the courage and willpower to assist, protect, and guide others no matter what the circumstances. They are ready for heroic acts in society.

Not to mention, they are often the ones who share their food and fortune with others during difficult times. To prove it, this fact is mentioned in classical source Saravali that Aries Mars natives are always inclined towards charitable deeds and find great delight in such.

By being delightful, they are not prone to envy or despise others making it easy for them to perform charity regularly.

Moreover, the desire to help, protect, and assist others is empowered by their high sense of righteousness and this gives them a greater purpose in life that brings them immense satisfaction.

However, as they are extremely righteous and justice-loving, their kind-heartedness can convert into aggressiveness quickly, when their kindness is being taken advantage of unfairly by sinful people. In fact, they would take every chance to bring justice to its feet by any means.

Often they are not interested in authority or being a leader but despite this, they are still honored as great natural leaders for their natural protective and charitable traits. This is because of their high self-confidence and belief in the self which takes away the need to prove themselves to other people.

In other words, being a leader or authoritative figure is not a status for them, but rather a serious commitment and responsibility, which is actually true. Power should never be used to amplify self-worth or ego but to serve humanity and the will of divine forces.

Honorable & Prosperous

Classics state that such natives are honorable just like a king and possess a lot of landed property. As Mars is the significator of real estate and explorers, such natives are inherently talented in everything related to land, protection, security, and other matters related to landed property, such as construction or design.

In ancient times, the Aries Mars people were great leaders because of their courage, intuition, and mental strength combined which allowed them to conquer many lands or be the owner of them any other way.

Their great analytical and mental abilities combined with immense strength prove them to be very competent in this tough sphere of construction, lands, and protection.

This is what enables them to become prosperous and attain great rewards for their efforts. The exact field which they master is highly dependent on other influences in the natal birth chart.

It is important to note that these effects can also manifest partly depending on the degree of Mars. Not all of them will possess tons of land, but something similar such as royalty over a good design or plan that gives rise to the growth of the land.

Alternatively, they can be initiators of an important trend that grows gradually and changes the environment rapidly and effectively.

Possible Ruchaka Yoga

Mars in Aries can form a very powerful planetary combination called Ruchaka Yoga in Vedic astrology. It is one of the Pancha Mahapurusha Yogas which signifies great men.

The planetary combination or yoga forms when Mars is one of the Kendra or Quadrangular houses (1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th houses) while it is in its own sign, Aries. This planetary combination extends the strong effects of Mars and provides a high level of success and prosperity to the native.

Digbala Mars

If Mars happens to be in the 10th house of the birth chart while being in its own sign, it forms a very special and powerful combination.

In fact, it is a blessing. Mars gains directional strength or momentum in the 10th house which further extends the results of strong Ruchaka Yoga Mars in its own sign in a Kendra (10th Quadrant house).

This set of combinations expands the good results exponentially and delivers tremendously positive effects.
