Between Jupiter and the Earth, Astronomy places the Planet Mars, with which it is claimed we are about to communicate by means of electric waves.
Whether such result be obtainable or not, it is certain that the majority of human beings born under the influence of Mars — the Martians (or “Martials”) — are heavily built but physically
They are not gifted with much intellectuality and care but little for any form of learning, except as it refers to out-door sports, travels in dangerous countries and military affairs. They are brave to a degree, only too ready to risk their lives for little or no purpose; they are easily angered, and, for the time being, forget everything in the excess of their violence.
The worst Martian type will commit murder before he knows it.
At their best, those born under Mars will show themselves straightforward and incapable of any kind of fraud. Their word is their bond and they are ready for hard work. They are patient, faithful and true, but not “brainy.”
A male Martian is generally a great favorite with the ladies and is apt to be rather quick and unscrupulous in his courtship methods. He is not a sentimental lover.
A bad Martian is a loud, fatiguing talker and a braggard.
Now we have studied the Astrological meanings of the three Planets placed, in the Solar system, farther from the Sun than we — the Earth — are. Between us and the Sun we find, first: VENUS ♀
