Earth's Lovers: Mars and Venus

Mars and Venus are personal planets in the chart because of their relatively quick motions. They're also known as the "love planets" because of their rulership connection to Aries/Scorpio and Taurus/Libra, which are the love or sex signs in astrology. There may have been a time(or times)when these bodies appeared very close to us causing fear and commotion and establishing the basis for their rulerships.

New Age, and other authors have written profusely about our ancient and even recent interactions with the bodies and Lords of Venus and Mars. There appears to be a dramatic increase in UFO sightings when they appear closest to us, and also an increase in war, aggression, and intimacy.

Mars/Earth/Venus relationship as symbolized by the common traffic light

Our every day lives are filled with symbolism which reflect our current slave-planet situation. One such is the common traffic light with its stop(red=Mars), caution (yellow/amber=Earth), and go(green=Venus) lights. It shows you who the main players are on this plane - Mars(human overlords) and Venus(reptillian overlords). Venus appears to have the upper hand at this time. Mars plays the guard and warns us of danger(red) while Venus gives the go-ahead (green). Should it not be human red-blooded Mars as the go-ahead color and green-blooded Venus as the stop color. It's all in reverse.

American/Tibetan Lama, Robert Ernst Dickoff, in his book -Agartha, indicates that we are closer to our blonde, blue-eyed, Nordic demi-gods and creators, the Martians, than we are to the reptillian humanoids of Venus, both of whom are deadly and eternal enemies and both of whom are vying for possession of our Earth. According to Robert we have abandoned our original partner or lover(Mars)and sold out to our Venusian pimps who only want to use us.

One way the Martians have successfully dealt with the reptillians is to play on their one major weakness -the cold. All reptiles(and insects) are cold-blooded and can't function in cold weather. They "freeze up" or paralyze. Using their technical ingenuity, the Martians have built vast undergroung freezing machines near the poles to restrict or restrain the proliferation of their nemesis. The "Ice Ages" are nothing more than the full functioning of these freezing machines.

In astrology, Venus/Taurus represents the 8th house of sex, death, and regeneration for Earth/Libra, while Mars/Aries represents the 7th house of marriage or partnership. We are definitely better off with Mars than we are with Venus. Venusians find us attractive and smart(and delicious), but we find them gross and scary. Martians also find us attractive, but unlike the Venusians(not all of which are bad or reptillian.), they do not see us as food, toys, or resources to be used and possessed. Martians treat Eartheans as equals, and we they. Martians needs us to vanquish the negative Venusian hordes who are always defeating them in some way, and we need the Martians to help rid Earth of the same.

Eartheans have other friends such as the Solarians, Mercurians, Jupiterians, and Uranians, as well as other enemies, such as the Lunarians, Saturnians, Neptunians, and Plutonians, but none is closer or more important to us, both astrologically and personally, than the Martians. They are our intimate opposites on the zodiac wheel, and we need to strengthen or re-establish our partnership with them.

Astrological Significance

In astrology, the Earth's influence comes to us via the ascendant or rising sign(eastern horizon) and describes our most immediate or personal traits. All of the other planets in astrology have equal significance, as they represent the different worlds adjacent to us on this vast plane. It's just that we are focused(physically) on this Earth pond or puddle, so it becomes our reference point in relation to the others.

Mars and Earth represent the Aries-Libra axis in astrology. Both are "wedded" to one another via their respective rulerships(Mars rules Aries and Earth rules its opposite -Libra). The opposition is the aspect of marriage or partnership. Earth/Libra, when combined with its night-side ruler, Venus/Taurus results in the institution called marriage, while Mars/Aries, when combined with its night-side ruler, Pluto/Scorpio, results in sex or procreation. On a cosmic or even biblical level, Earth(Libra) has left her original bride or lover Mars(Aries) to go awhoring after Venus(Taurus), leaving Mars to shack up with Pluto(Scorpio).

This love/lust scenario is replayed in our personal lives via our own Earth/Mars/Venus/Pluto placements(the "sex planets" in astrology). Since Earth is our reference point, planetary relations to it are first to be considered. Venus and Mars have an especially intimate relationship to the Earth/Ascendant. Venus in one chart can give great pleasure(usually sexual) when harmoniously linked by sign or element to someone else's Ascendant. Mars, harmoniously linked, can be very invigorating and has the effect of encouraging the ascendant person to just be his or her unpretentious self.
