Mars in your Horoscope - Planet of (sexual) energy

Mars - the None-reflective Warrior who Acts before he Thinks!

The capability to perform aggressively and with courage is needed, not entirely for survival, but also for success in one's life ambitions. Mars symbolizes the desire to act in this manner, but deserted to the situation can cause chaos. The quest of one's goals in life is primarily characterized by the Sun, which is usually more encouraging, equally in clarifying those goals and in discovering the correct path. This is for the reason that the Sun is more reflective, can get the bigger picture, understanding that one's specific goals effect on other individuals, and that achievement in one's own mission may be reduced if others are trampled upon on the way. (Mars in Scorpio can be more understated.)

Herakles, a mythical figure thought of as a hero by the Greeks, is a Mars-like figure. He blunders his way forward, accidentally killing people, or wounding friends, on the way. Mars in the horoscope can show where, in an none reflective moment, we can harm other people in the pursuit of our goals.

Another figure in Greek myth signifying Mars is Ares. Ares was created in rage by Hera parthenogenetically after her husband Zeus had created the goddess Athena out of his head without a mother. Thus Ares has no father. He acted out of pure instinct without any spiritual or intellectual dimension, and was successful where blind bloodthirstiness and brutality were all that was required. Where intelligence and reflection were required, Athena was more successful.

Mars gets things done. He is not concerned to compare his path with those of others, nor necessarily even to dominate others, but just to get to his chosen destination (so with people in charts dominated by Aries). In order to relate he needs Venus (Aphrodite) to whom he is irresistibly drawn, and who can tame him through beauty and pleasure. A good relationship between Venus and Mars in the chart can show a good balance between assertion and compromise.
