Leo - As Uttara-Phalguni is a part of Leo, Leo sign and its representations become important. Leo is 5th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things associated with 5th house of horoscope like Love, Creativity, Arts, Being on Stage etc. Besides that, Leo is basically the Lion. This is the sign of feeling like King or Queen. Also, it is a sign of independence, Confidence, Ego, Self Esteem etc. Leo is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra namely Magha, Purva-Phalguni and Uttara-Phalguni. Leo's lord is Sun.
Virgo - As Uttara-Phalguni is also a part of Virgo, Virgo sign and its representations also become important. Virgo is the 6th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents almost all the things which are represented by the 6th house of horoscope like Debts, Diseases, Obstacles, Serving the under-privileged, Service Life, etc. Besides this, Virgo represents analytical or critical skills of people, being perfectionist and healing abilities. Virgo's basic representation is the lady coming in boat with wheat and herbs in her hands. So, Virgo is basically a sign of healing. Virgo consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury.
Sun - As Sun rules Leo and Uttara-Phalguni, Sun's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Uttara Phalguni/Leo.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Virgo, Mercury's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Uttara Phalguni/Virgo.
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Interpretation of Mars in Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra – Now, Mars is all about efforts and taking actions. Uttara-Phalguni comes after Purva-Phalguni where Kingdom starts functioning after initial celebration of arrival of new King. So, Mars in Uttara-Phalguni can be the most hard working people around but there is a twist in story. In Leo section, Sun rules over Mars as it is lord of Leo/Uttara Phalguni both. As Sun is a friend of Mars, Mars in Leo/Uttara Phalguni not only shows a very hard working person but the efforts and actions are also streamlined and going in right direction. But when Mars is in Virgo/Uttara Phalguni then it is in enemy sign as Virgo is ruled by Mercury. Here also, person will be very hard working but his actions can be scattered here, there and everywhere. So, he may not find the best of results of his actions. In Virgo section, they also need to take care of their speech which can be dominating and aggressive sometimes. Professionally, they can be working in matters of conflicts especially financial conflicts. They can be seen as Lawyers, Activists or Counselors but it can very easily be the case that they themselves can be in conflicts. Good thing is that they are kind of fighters and don't accept defeat easily.
Role of Sun – Sun placement is important to guide Mars in right direction, being Uttara Phalguni and Leo's lord.
Role of Mercury - Likewise, Mercury placement is important to guide Mars in right direction, being Virgo's lord.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Mars in Uttara Phalguni. So, we always need to take a holistic view of chart rather than just 1 planetary position.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Mars in Uttara Phalguni can work in a chart.
