It’s pretty easy to overlook Mars when you’re looking at astrological compatibility.
Mars is an underrated planet with a lot to say about how you get motivated. It also tells how you enter and exit relationships, and how you fight.
We’ve interviewed jeweler and astrologer Kae Lockhart for insights on this often overlooked planet.
Kae Lockhart: Jeweler and Astrologer
Kae Lockhart is a jeweler by day and a psychic by night. “My mother was an astrologer before I was born. At 12, I discovered my own gift, and then devoured every book she had packed away in our basement. By 14, I presented modern astrology to my class.”
“In college, I went professional. I have been helping clients use this spiritual science for career, wellness, and of course love questions and answers.”
What Does Mars Placement Mean On a Birth Chart?
When asked about the Red Planet in a birth chart reading, Kae lights up, “Mars is an underrated asset! Most people are misled by pop culture about Mars. People tend to think it’s all about attraction. This is terribly misleading information.”
“Mars is priceless for optimizing one's health, best exercise outlet, work motivations and persona, anger style, and romantic actions. Regarding love, if Venus is the how, Mars is the why - at least in my book.”
Mars is an indicator of what drives you to action. Are you having difficulty finding motivation in your life? Mars will give you a clue about what makes you get up and go. For example, a person with Mars in Sagittarius will often find themselves driven by the thrill of adventure. Someone with their Mars in Taurus will probably be more driven by a material gain.
When you understand your Mars, you know how to self-motivate.
What Does Mars Tell Us About Romantic Compatibility?
It’s common knowledge to look at Venus and the Moon signs when checking for romantic compatibility. Not everyone remembers to look up mars. We asked Kae on the matter.
“Every planet aids romance. People get misinformed thinking Mars indicates harmony or disagreement between two potential partners. Mars really is about how one enters and exits relationships, and also your style of fighting. If you consult an astrologer at the start of a relationship, you can find their triggers and pain points before costly couples counseling.”
Kae goes on to explain how understanding Mars helps heal couples. “I’m working with a couple who have Mars in Aries and other’s is in Capricorn. One rushes into attraction, the other discerns the long term potential beforehand. When arguing, Aries is overly explosive, Capricorn is overly disciplinarian.”
“When they first came to me, they had a controlling dynamic. One did too much, the other was withholding. These styles of “love and hate” that initially brought them together were threatening to tear them apart. I help them navigate their conflicts when they hit a rough patch. They’re doing a lot better now.”
How Can a Psychic Help Me Understand My Mars Placement?
Kae elaborates on how crucial it is to understand your Mars placement in long-term relationships. “A psychic can clarify how this works for you and with your partner. Don’t worry if you don’t know much at first. Your awareness will lead to clearer, more specific questions. That growth helps you, your romantic mate, and the experience you both are creating together.”
Even with single clients, Kae makes sure to understand Mars in their psychic readings. “My best client has a Mars in Taurus. This gives slow exploration of a new attraction, a gentle fizzling out ideally when the love is done. We have psychic conversations about timing. She needs advice on when to step on the gas instead of the brakes.”
“Everyone has a theme in their love lifes. By knowing my client’s, the search for and success in love improves with the aid of psychic insight and your use of that guidance.”
Don’t Miss Mars!
Mars is an easy planet to overlook. But you don't want to miss it. Mars can help you understand your motivation, how you find attraction, and how you fight. When you know these things about yourself, it's easy to build the life you desire.
Don’t lose great relationships to petty fights. Psychics can help you understand how you and your partner tick and find answers to questions you may have about your love and relatioship. We hope this interview with Kae Lockhart has illuminated the Red Planet for you.
