There are two facets for deficiency of sex; physical and mind. When either of them or any one of them afflicted, it causes a disease in the mind with respect to sex. This disease may be caused by Mars who is not well posited in a horoscope. It may not be to the extent of causing impotency. The mind and the body both which are otherwise required to do some useful works, waste time in too much material things such as looks, limbs and color. A person is attracted to the opposite sex of either too young or too old. The color, body parts such as feet, limbs, back, breasts, face or anything for that matter becomes attractive including an awkward body.
There is no discretion in getting attracted. He starts day-dreaming that woman in his bed. That person is easily provocated by slightest distractions. Mars is the cause for such ailment. Mars holds the key to sexual drive. First Mars creates sexual urge in a person. Then he separates the person who is cause for such attraction. If separation is not there, at least He creates ill-harmony. Mars is masculine. Venus is feminine. Just as Sun and Moon form king-queen set up, Mars and Venus do it. A person needs Love.Since it is constructive. Because if one is satisfied in Love, that person concentrates on Work; Next on achievements.
When Mars and Venus are well-posited in a horoscope, the Coitus is complete. That is the greatest pleasure in life. When the Coitus is incomplete, the urge to get it, increases. This urge due to dis-satisfaction in Love, give rise to distractions as opposed to concentration. Frigidity, Premature-ejaculation, Even Sadism which are the causes of mental illness are the results of such in-complementeness. Love, Work & Achievement in one’s life go together. Reich’s improvement to the Freud’s Libido Theory holds good. This is again the process of achievement of Sat, Chit and Ananda (bliss) . A good conduct produces a healthy mind; A healthy mind creates Pleasure ( Ananda ). For all this the blessings of Mars and Venus are necessary.
Adhyaya II, Verse 3 of Phaladeepika of Mantreshwara , [read by Sodenen] reads like this: Mars is the Karaka of mental and physical strength, all that grows in the Earth, well-being of the brothers and sisters, cruelty, battle field, courage, enmity, kitchen fire, gold, kindred, weapons, thieves, enemies, zest, adultery, falsehood, manliness, large-heartedness, wickedness, wound and injury, and army command.
In a Horoscope, when the Mars is ill-posited, such as dusthana, Kendras, since he is a natural malefic, or aspected by Rahu, Ketu and Saturn, and / or Mars aspecting these naturally malefic planets, theft, injury, wound, enmity, adultery, wickedness, mental and physical weakness, etc., show their presence predominately in the life of that person. Mars being Karaka of sex, adultery and mental weakness, the person is always reverberating with the feeling of sex dreaming. There is no reason and rationality in falling to the opposite sex. One classic example of Yashodhara Charitre, the queen there falls for a servant who was a horse-cleaner.
The queen would tolerate even the beating by such a person. At that moment, the status and honor are given away for the sake of sexual pleasure. The person in whose horoscope, the Mars is ill-posited, such person always be thinking of the looks of physical body. On the positive side, Mars is kind, benevolent, a discipllinarian. To those who are disciplined in their life, or to those whom Mars is well-positioned, he yields easily and grants all the bounty to such persons. It is always advised to pray for Mars through his deity Hanuman or Skanda .. In Tantric Yoga, to increase Tejas, Mantra worship of Skanda, and Rudra, the terrible form of Shiva are suggested. Bhoo-Chakra or Earth Chakra represents Tejas .

Mars is war-monger. Whenever he is strong and poorly posited, there ensues war. The earlier World Wars indicate a strong Mars influence. A person is haughty, ferocious and would not listen to reason. What about President Bush of America? A classic example of war-mongering. The very presence of a Mars person creates fire in atmosphere. Such a person creates anxiety neurosis , due to his Libido.
