My reference to Mars in Libra being unable to act is because he is peregrine in that sign (unless in a degree dignified by term or face), not because he is in detriment. This is why I distinguished Mars in Libra from Mars in Taurus and Mars in fall in Cancer.

I agree that a malefic strong in essential dignity can act as a benefic, particularly when the dignity is pure. As I said, for most purposes, I do treat Mars in Aries, Scorpio, or Capricorn as a benefic. I also explained the difference between Mars in Scorpio and in Aries. Mars is stronger in Scorpio than Aries, because he also has dignity in Scorpio by triplicity.

Thanks for the clarification
