Mars In The Sky

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System. With the name of the Roman god of war, Mars is often referred to as the Red Planet, refering to the effect of the iron oxide prevalent on Mars’ surface, which gives it a reddish appearance distinctive among the astronomical bodies visible to the naked eye.

Working With Mars

Ignite the power of Mars with the mantra:
OM Hrim Mangalaya Namaha!

Mars’ color is red, and his day is Tuesday.

The primary gem for Mars traditionally has been coral, but that is endangered, so better now is carnelian, which you can wear as a pendant.
Wearing a gem for Mars can be counter-productive and so should be avoided unless you are very sure it is beneficial for you.

Spices & Herbs: Cinnamon, Saffron, Turmeric, Cayenne, Black pepper boost the fire element, while Ginseng, Astragalus and Ashwagandha are cooling while strength-building.  To reduce the fire of Mars, choose bitter herbs like Aloe, Gentian, Golden Seal, Echinacea.

I’m still reveling in the joy of my Jyotish session with you – it was very illuminating, inspiring and reassuring. Thank you so much!


“Radiant Energy”

You have such warmth, wisdom and a radiant energy, it’s so joyful and contagious.



Laura’s poetic way of explaining ‘the mystery’ blew my mind, like a conversation with my very essence. Thank you Laura, your gift is divine!


“Oh my god”

“It was like she was looking into my soul. It was truly beautiful, my heart was bursting with love and gratitude to be alive.”
