Have you ever observed the intriguing phenomenon of some individuals appearing to defy the passage of time, retaining a youthful appearance, whilst others seem to age rapidly? The explanation for this fascinating contrast can be found in the realm of astrology, specifically within one’s birth chart.

In astrology, two planets, Mercury and Mars, are often associated with youthful energy. Mercury is symbolically akin to a child, while Mars embodies the essence of youth. Therefore, in your birth chart if either Mars or Mercury are prominently positioned in the Ascendant, conjoined with the Ascendant’s ruling planet, or exerting significant influence on both the Ascendant and its ruling planet through planetary aspects, it is believed that you are more likely to age at a slower pace.
