Other than that, a well-placed Mars with directional strength indicates being very intelligent and wise which indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) skills, knowledge, and talents of various activities.

As the 5th house signifies progeny, the considered aspect of Mars also indicates being blessed with wise and fortunate children.

Alternatively, ill-placed Mars in the considered house brings obstructions and obstacles that hinder the process of achieving the desired results. If the 10th house lord is well-placed while Mars is ill-placed, it indicates successfully overcoming obstacles despite having gradual obstructions on the way.

Renowned & Admired

The 10th house signifies the highest point in the sky which equally symbolizes name, fame, and achievements which make people famous and renowned in society.

Alternatively, if Mars is associated with a natural malefic planet or positioned in an unfavorable sign it indicates having ill-reputation caused by enemies at some periods in life.

If the 10th house lord is favorably placed, it supports ill-placed Mars and helps to diminish the bad reputation with good deeds.

If Mars is debilitated in the 10th house with directional strength, it indicates being sinful, unfaithful, and possessing the violent mentality of a thief which also causes irreversible ill-reputation.

Highly Competitive & Self-Motivating

A planet of commanders Mars in the 10th house, aspecting the 1st house, indicates being extremely dominant, competitive, and valorous. The quote of “my way or the high way” fits perfectly with this combination.

People with this combination have the restless desire to be the winner in every situation and dominate opposition at any cost. In fact, they can’t stand opposition at all and ready to conquer all the obstacles.

If Mars is well-placed in favorable sign, it indicates having a righteous soul and mindset which leads to pious deeds. In this case, the mentality of “never-give-up” is beneficial as it motivates us to succeed in pious goals.

The debilitation of Mars (or ill aspected and placed Mars in inimical sign), however, fighting to achieve goals in sinful ways.

If the 10th house lord is favorably placed, and Mars receives cancellation of debilitation, it indicates being suitable to war-like activities where overcoming tremendous obstacles is required by very hard ways (e.g. in war-zone, even when it requires demolishing the enemy).

However, the military is not the only suitable field of activity. Any other activity, depending on the birth chart, is suitable where the traits of debilitated Mars (manipulation, lie, theft, demolition, etc) are beneficial.

Classical Analysis

Bhrigu Sutras

In Bhrigu Sutras, a large variety of auspicious results are mentioned, even without considering sign positioning. That is because Mars gains strength naturally in this house through DigBala and energies of the 10th house.

This combination makes the native very fortunate and prosperous. That is because the 10th is the value house of the 9th house. Hence, individuals with this combination of Mars will be active in spiritual, religious, and philosophical spheres.

With that being said, they are inherently faithful and involve in meditation and show great devotion to God and their mentors.

The positive results are further amplified if Mars in the 10th house is the sign of or associated with a natural benefic planet (Moon, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus).

Consequently, natives with this combination are praised and commended by the members of society because of their great moral and respectful characteristics. Such natives are devoted to their duty or public mission and others notice that highly responsible trait in these natives.

Moreover, as these natives are highly devoted to their work combined with social support and fortune, such natives will become successful and prosperous in their undertakings which are witnessed by the eyes of masses. They will become famous for their high achievements.

Itis also said that such natives are very active from early ages as low as 18 when they start earning their first bits of income.

It is also mentioned that such natives have a strong and bulky body. That is because Mars is casting its fourth aspect ray upon the 1st house of self and body. Mars is the planet of physical strength, dynamism, power, and courage which influences their mentality and body in such ways.

Moreover, they will have high authority and a powerful position in society which is given to them for dealing with great responsibilities regarding the masses of people.

It is also mentioned that when Mars is associated with Jupiter through conjunction or aspect, such natives are blessed with abundant gains, conveyances, land, and comforts. Jupiter also heightens the magnificence and righteousness of the native with this combination.

However, if Mars is associated with a natural malefic planet (Saturn, Sun) in this house, it provides some malefic side results to this combination. It is said to provide lots of instructions in the main duties of the native which turn them serious, harsh, cruel, and strict. They are capable of confronting their sinful enemies with force and show no mercy to them in the process.


Individuals with this combination will be charitable, righteous, valorous, and admired by masses of people despite their cruel, strict, domineering, and straightforward character.


According to Saravali, people with this combination are especially active, skillful, and motivated which makes them very efficient in their career, business, or main field of activity.

Such natives are extremely competitive and undefeatable. They are magnificent and charismatic.

If they are into a career, they are involved with one of the most powerful organizations and authorities.

That is because Mars is considered as a commander in chief under Sun (king, government, etc). That is, such natives can be successful leaders in the most powerful country and/or organization.

As per our views, this combination produces a person with an independent mentality which in combination with their great skills, activeness, and support from society enables them to become powerful entrepreneurs and business magnates.
