The placement of Mars gives us a lot information about how someone use his energy, how he is motivated, what type of leader he is in a group (work groups, sport teams …) and if we talk about sport what is his style of play, what type of player he is for the team.
Mars in Water Signs - The Glue
Mars in Cancer Lionel Messi, Zidane, Buffon, Marco Reus
Mars in Scorpio Schweinsteiger, Iniesta, Fernando Torres, Benzema
Mars in Pisces David Beckham
If you want your team to be a real team, you’re gonna need some glue to make everyone play like one person. This is Mars in Water role.
While I was searching for example of this placement I was wondering why so many football legends have Mars in a Water Sign and I realized it’s because they are bringing the team together, they create cohesion and fluidity in the game. And because of that, they make the team better, greater.
Water molds itself to the shape of the recipient it is poured into so anyone with such placement will take the shape of the team, they will become the team (in both it’s qualities and weaknesses).
They are emotional leader and act through their intuition. They feel the game and they play with their feelings. It’s a delight to watch them play. Words like ‘artist’ or ‘magician’ are often use to describe them because they have the capacity to make those who watch them “feel”, every movements they make is fluid and natural (even when it’s very technical and difficult).
Like any other person, they want to win, but the #1 motivation is to connect (emotionally) with their teammates, through victory and defeat, through high and low. That is where they find the energy to win. Not through competition like Fire Mars but through the team’s emotions. This can sometimes play against them if they can’t emotionally connect with their teammates, they are gonna be without energy, without determination. Useless on the pitch.
Because their emotions dictate their games, they can be very sore loser. They encapsulate what the team is feeling and all their emotions are x11. It can be too much for them to handle, they may crack under pressure as they react solely based on their emotions. For example, Zidane is mostly calm but
he got many red cards in his career due to his lack of control of his emotions in tense games. Or Messi quitting his national team after losing another final, sure he is a known sore loser but he felt the disappointment of the entire team and of the nation, not just his own, and it was too much for him in the moment.
