Planet Mars has attracted not only astrology enthusiasts but everyone including scientists and Scientologists. Even though scientists of the twentieth century have proven that Mars is red, this description is there in many Vedic texts. Sage Para Sara, Varahamihira has clearly stated that Mars is red and it is the planet for action, passion, and wars. In all branches of astrology, Planet Mars is known as the warrior of the zodiac. Mars is also known as the red planet.
