Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
In Greece they considered the Regent of Mars as the god of war and called him Ares (Aries). The ancient Romans called him Mars, but for the Romans in addition to seeing him as the god of War, they also considered him the "guardian of agriculture", in charge of protecting the workings of the [Philosopher's Land] and the processes of purifying the waters (the mystery of the Magic of Love) and the cultivation of seeds (the powers of the Being).
The warrior influence of Mars is intended to energize the three factors of the Revolution of Consciousness; Consequently, the higher type of Aries uses these forces to fight the Ego, to be a "sentinel in time of war," to maintain self-remembering, to undertake practices, and to integrate doctrine.
The higher type of Aries knows, consciously, that the battle is against himself. However, the lower type of Aries fails to transform impressions and passes these forces on to his reactionary character; they become very angry and as a result it is difficult for them to be happy in love, since their easy irritability leads to marital dislikes and separations.
