How does Mars in different signs affect the native?

Let us discuss how Mars in different signs affects the native.


Mars is the Lord of the Lagna that rules personality and character, whereas the Eighth House rules death. With a weak Mars placed here, the native would be most prone to infections due to a weak immune system, other health concerns, and undue delays in all aspects of life. 


Mars is the Lord of the Seventh House that takes care of Marriage and Business-related aspects of life, and the twelfth house, the house of expenditure.

About Dr Vinay Bajrangi

Can anyone change the Horoscope? No, not even its creator the Brahma. Then what is that the astrology can or how can astrologers help us. My 2 decades exposure with a PhD in Astrology make me say that Horoscope is a direct manifesto of our Past Life Karmas which have gone past, fixed therefore cannot be changed. But there is something known as Gochar (transit of all planets in constellation like earth, sun, moon keep moving) Dasha which give us a chance to mould the results of the fixed planetary positions, allotted to us in Horoscope. That is possible through the Karmas of our present life (which are in our hand with manoeuvrability with a free will) and that where I preach that Karma correction with right guidance and at right time is the best way to extract best results with the help astrology. It is much better to control & play with your own free will than to desperately depend on mindless rituals later where you only pray to God help you with these rituals.
