Mars On The Going After the Innocent Degree: Scorpio 22
The Sabian Symbol for Mars is Scorpio 22: HUNTERS PROTECTED BY HEAVY CLOTHING ARE SHOOTING WILD DUCKS
The Sabian Symbol for Mars is one of ‘warring’ between the classes. One can feel like they are a ‘sitting duck’, or, that there is a need to look out for those who might shatter your peaceful life. Mars on this degree can represent the call to war, the need to bring out the weapons, to head off to shoot and to kill, although it can definitely also show an equally strong desire to protect the defenseless and those who need help.
This Symbol implies the need for protection of those who are innocent or younger, smaller, or not able to protect themselves. Being an advocate for others, you can shield them from the more harmful elements of society. You may, at times, feel that you are the one that needs to be protected or given shelter or in need of people declaring a ceasefire and amnesty so people can come out into the open and not be afraid to show their true selves. Of course, there is a need for an outlet for aggressive emotions every now and then. Doing so in groups gives this outlet, such as “Shooting Wild Ducks” some sense of acceptability. However, picking on those that are undefended or smaller is really not right, no matter what the terms.
