Tuesday is ruled by the planet Mars! Here is a story from the Puranas on the birth of Mars!
THE BIRTH OF ‘BHAUM’- MARS
Once, when the ganas of Shiva praised the glory of mother Sati, Lord Shiva became overjoyed just like an ordinary human being. In his joy, he travelled all around the three worlds. He returned back to Kailash and went into meditation.
While he was engrossed in his Samadhi, three drops of perspiration originated from his forehead fell down on the earth. From those drops manifested a very beautiful infant, who was of reddish complexion and who had four arms.
Seeing the child Lord Shiva became concerned about his upbringing. Right then, mother earth manifested and lord Shiva entrusted the job of child’s upbringing. The child was brought up by mother earth with great love and care. The child was named ‘Bhaum’ as he was nurtured and brought up by ‘Bhumi’ (earth).
When the child grew up, he went to Kashi and did a tremendous penance to please Lord Shiva became pleased with him and blessed him by granting him ‘Mangalloka’, which was superior even to the ‘Shukraloka’. The same ‘Bhauma’ is established in the solar system by the name of ‘Mars.’
