Mars in the seventh house when afflicted denotes quarrels and unpleasant conditions in the marriage state. It is very unfavourable in a male horoscope, denoting a wife that is combative and over-forceful. In a female horoscope it is also evil and is somewhat disastrous to the husband, showing the probability of a violent death. If Mars is afflicted in the seventh, separation through the uncontrolled temper and passionate nature of the partner is denoted. Even when well aspected this is not a good position for marriage, Mars ever tending to extremes and excess, in affection as in other things. It is more favourable in a female horoscope than in a male nativity, females represented by Mars being far too masculine and forceful, while males represented by Mars express the force as energy and enterprise. Note the sign occupied by Mars.
