Dream meaning of Mars
The primitive and astrobiological conception of creation is that it can take place only through ‘primordial sacrifice’; similarly, what has been created can only be preserved through sacrifice and war. The image of Janus, or the twinpeaked mountain of Mars, are symbols of inversion, that is, of the intercommunication between the Upper, non-formed World of future potentialities, and the Lower World of materialized forms.
Mars is the perennial incarnation of this necessity for the shedding of blood, apparent in all orders of the cosmos. Hence, early cults of Mars embraced vegetation: it was to Mars that the Roman farmer appealed for the prosperity of his harvest. His attributes are weapons, and specially the sword.
