Mars orbits the sun in 687 days and spends a little more than 57 days in each sign.

Physical Aspects of Mars

Mars itself rules physicality, so the physical aspects are particularly strong. Mars is going to make people take action by creating the inner drive to start things up. There isn't any sitting back on your heels when Mars is involved; you can feel extremely motivated to go ahead with anything. The aggression that comes with Mars leads you to strike first, rather than waiting to react to situations. Mars can lead you to take risks in search of getting things accomplished quickly. It gives people a ton of energy to take on tasks and the courage to get through situations they might be fearful of. The physical elements of sex are also ruled by Mars.

Mental Aspects of Mars

The mental aspects of Mars are also tied to creating physical action. Mars can make a person impatient in the attempts of driving them to action. Likewise, it often causes people to act without much thinking about things beforehand. Peoples' more passionate side comes from Mars. The way they think about the things they desire also comes up here. Mars also takes on a forceful nature in a person's thoughts, leading them to be assertive and making them competitive with others. Mars can help a person gain the confidence they need to do something and the will power necessary to stick it out through tough circumstances.

Other Things Mars Rules

Mars tends to divide things and people, so it also rules things like war. It controls the strength a person has (mentally and physically) and often its power shows up when there are struggles. Due to its competitive nature, it also rules sports. In the chart it rules the sign of Aries and Scorpio and the 1st House and 8th Houses (so it is more effective when in those positions).
