The Influence of Planet of Mars
This planet is considered to be among the main planets and has tremendous influence on the horoscope of any native. It is symbolic to a lot of courage, vitality, confidence, aggression and represents warrior like qualities in a native.

This planet is also often correlated with Lord Karthikeya, brother of Lord Ganesh; who is known as the God of War.
