In Vedic astrology, Mars is known as Mangal. The planet Mars represents ferocity and aggression. It stands for heat, redness, energy, and dynamism. According to Hindu Pauranic stories, Mangal is considered Bhumi Putra. He is considered to be the son of mother Earth.
It is said that when the earth was lying submerged in a vast expanse of the sea, Lord Vishnu in his Varaha Avatar lifted the earth and brought it out, and placed it in a suitable orbit. The grateful mother earth asked to bear the child of the god. The holy union of the god and mother earth resulted in an action planet, Mars. (Interesting Mars Facts)
