“It is better to have loafed and lost, than never to have loafed at all.”
Mars placement is indicative of how one acts. Venus expresses your esthetic, what you like and value. I’d say Venus plays a big part in the types of gifts a person is likely to pick out, but Mars, its placement and its aspects are most reflected in the way in which you give.
With my Mars in the third house in hard aspect to Jupiter (generosity) and uneasy aspect to Saturn (responsibility) I sometimes have difficulty “pulling the trigger” when it comes to gifting. I mull it over to the point where I’m late or give up. I’m uneven. Sometimes I give big (Jupiter) gifts and sometimes I don’t even leave myself time enough to send a card. Let’s just say I’m hit or miss and lucky enough to have gracious people in my life who love me anyway.
What kind of a gift-giver are you? Where is your Mars?
