    "Oriente Lux Occidente Lex " ( Out of the East Light, out of the West Laws ) - thus proclaimed the Latin scholars. The Orient became
    synonymous with Light and Wisdom. The Occident with laws & conquest of the outer world. The West still dominates the fields of Science, Technology & Economics. The East was far more bothered about
    conquering the inner world: for the greatest conquest is the conquest of the Mind ! " The noblest conquest is the conquest of oneself " said Buddha. This inner conquest means to sublimate our ego, conquer our negative aspect and then redeem the world ! This is far more difficult than conquering the outer world !

           
    The role of Mars in Horoscopy



    Mars is the Defense Minister in the Government of the Almighty. On the
    practical plane this fiery planet is the significator of administrative
    ability. If the fire of Mars is not present in the natal chart, the native
    will be a dreamer, lacking in the practical brilliance needed for success.

    The term martial is derived from Mars. Police,
    defence, martial arts -
    all these come under his domain. Fiery temparament and skill in war
    are the prerogatives of Mars. If he be exalted in one's horoscope,
    the native will become a cruel ruler ( as in Emperor Nero's horoscope).
