Mars in Pisces or in the 12th house people have the planet relating to personal will (and when there are obstructions to the personal will —> anger) in the sign/house of empathy and surrendering, dissolving. Their relationship to anger can be totally submerged and hidden, or instead of feeling the impulse for anger when their will is thwarted they will feel the impulse for empathy and understanding. This allows them to tolerate intensely disempowering situations that others would put up boundaries for, but 12th house Mars/Mars in Pisces endures – transcends?
Having outlets for high-power yang energy like intense exercise can be a straight up spiritual experience for Mars in the 12th house people. They don’t necessarily need to do battle with the situation at hand – they can sweat it out, talk to Spirit, and find the upsetting situation disappear. Or they can slip soundlessly into the night & ghost.
This is, until, the spiritual path is in confronting the difficult situation – which feels loaded with ancient angst, perhaps multiple past lives of surrendering or transcending in similar situations and now enough is finally enough. In this case, the situation at hand is given a lot more intensity and power in the person’s psyche than it is on paper/objectively. When the problem is met with a solution that is new – or what the spiritual message is calling for – and not just a repetition of how said ancient angst has been met in the past, the storm clouds that were hovering around seem to dissipate, butterflies fly around, the sunlight looks particularly magnificent, the air is spectacularly fresh. A flush of magic.
