This system is interesting, even more so when you understand a little astrology. One realizes that the current heliocentric system is adapted to a certain “symbolic convenience”.
Hi Michael - and welcome to the forum.
I’m guessing that you are referring to the “monotheistic Sun worship”…
And indeed, why would it be so difficult to imagine Mars being a ‘2nd star’? After all, the vast majority of the stars in our skies are (old) red dwarfs - many of which are invisible to the naked eye as they do not shine with their own light (like our young Sun).
Now, Sirius B (the binary companion of Sirius A) is officially reckoned to be a white dwarf. Yet, in my book, I propose that Sirius B is the “twin” of Mars - so shouldn’t Sirius B logically also be a red dwarf? Well, that’s when you need to know that , the only difference between a white dwarf and a red dwarf is their age, red dwarfs being much older:
This would seem to suggest that our Solar System might be much older than the Sirius System. But back to the main issue: could Mars be a 2nd star (rather than a ‘planet’)? Of course it could: it is, after all, the only reddish / orange body in our Solar System and has all the looks of a red dwarf.

Hello and welcome Mchael85.
I am going to post this link to the work of Jeffery Wolynski here, I think it is referenced somewhere else in this forum, but his hypothesis is very interesting, and may be pertinent here.
