Digit: 3, 10, 39.

Strength: Dark Moon when posited in Aries or Scorpio Sign, or full Moon when associated with Nakshatras (Stars) No. 20 or 21. The native becomes energetic, brave and active when Mars is situated in Upachaya houses (3, 6, 10 & 11th houses from Ascendant are termed as Upachaya). Mars is said to be strong when he is victorious in a planetary war or when he is retrograde in motion, or when he is brilliant, is posited in his own exaltation sign of Capricorn or in Aquarius or in Pisces, or in his southern course and ad night. He is also strong in his own Navamsa, in his own day Tuesday and his own Decanate (drekkana). He is strong in any sign that happens to be the 10th house. He is very strong in the beginning of a sign, weak in the middle and of moderate strength at the end of a sign.

When Mars being the owner of malefic houses is placed in Angles position from Ascendant the native becomes obstinate, haughty, and turbulent. When the Moon is influenced by unfavourable Mars the native becomes short-tempered and suffers from loss of wealth and luck. Favourable Mars occupying third house from Ascendant makes the native skilful, courageous but a powerful Mars in that house may be the cause of premature death of the native’s elder brother or sister.
