Having the impulsive planet Mars in the third house has a strong impact on the native’s mind and ways of communication. Such people have very active minds that can even become aggressive. They like to argue and debate and receive pleasure in verbally defeating other people.
When someone has Mars in the 3rd house, his speech can be offensive, and will frequently hurt people with what they say. Even their humor can be sarcastic and provocative, while they also tend to speak without thinking the consequences of what they say beforehand. Even when realizing that they are wrong, they do not confess it and prefer to defend their first opinion in every possible way. It does not take a lot of effort to make them nervous; Mars in the house of communications has a special button that can easily trigger a furious response.
Mars in the 3rd house gives a lot of fighting with siblings, which is mainly frequent in their childhood. The quarreling nature of the red planet has such an effect on neighbors too; it will frequently bring tension in the native’s nearby surroundings and raise the tone of the voices. The curious fact is that the native often is the “bad” neighbor, not the other person! When Mars is adversely afflicted, then the chart owner will deliberately seek trouble, just for the sake of arguing. This is a rather unhealthy behavior, which creates an overall bad atmosphere for his everyday life and should definitely be kept under control. When Mars is left untamed in his bad traits, he can become really malicious, mirroring back to you the evil that you unleash.
Their childhood years were probably rather difficult, and their school and neighborhood were not peaceful. As children, they have usually suffered bullying and also been victims of it. The area of their childhood residence is usually a violent and unsafe one, with raging criminality. The constant subconscious fear of their neighborhood creates their alertness towards external threats, as a way to survive and feel safer in this dangerous environment.
The native with Mars in the 3rd house will frequently go to short journeys; their nature will be rather impulsive and forced though. They can have a violent hobby such as hunting or some martial art, connected with these nearby excursions. Mars in the 3rd house creates a hyper-energetic person, who feels rather restless and does not know how to release the abundance of mental energy. Their hasty way of thoughts can lead to a lot of quick wrong decisions, so such natives are advised to invest in developing more analytical thoughts. Learning how to wait before taking a decision or speaking will calm down the explosive energies of Mars and help the individual structure his reality in a better way; such an approach might even teach him how precious a peaceful atmosphere can be in their daily reality. This is the way of healing the traumas that keep the mind alert, reducing the subconscious stress that is dominating their everyday life.
Of course, such type of a mind can be useful for a lot of professions. Every job that needs an aggressive speech will be successful. The only issue is that most of these jobs have a very flexible morality; the native would excel as a political agitator, in propaganda and spreading rumors, as a low-ranked military responsible for educating neophytes by oppressing them and breaking down their defenses and character into pieces. Every job that is based on verbal violence and arguments can go well, but we firmly advise all natives with this placement not to indulge in unleashing uncontrolled Martian powers onto others. When Mars is allowed to function at will, he can create a fanatic, a sadist and someone who enjoys getting into situations of ecstatic frenzy.
The third house rules everything that is crafted by hands, and the presence of Mars can create a great blacksmith, weapon creator, knife handler or surgeon. Especially when Mars is only positively aspected by other planets, the person is advised to enter into such kind of Martian professions that involve metal and sharp objects, as his mastery can reach unique levels and he can offer a great service to humanity.
A last piece of advice for all our friends who have Mars in their 3rd house! Do not drive fast. Especially if you drive a motorcycle. We all know that the third house rules transportation, so when Mars is present in the house and adversely aspected, there are extreme dangers of accidents. Be even more careful if Mars is afflicted by Uranus, or Uranus is also present in the house. The safety of your body should be your first priorities and you really do not need to be cocky and show off yourself with your new motorcycle. Be patient; increasing your speed while driving will probably shorten your trip by ten minutes, but why risking to arrive in pieces or not to arrive at all?
