Your Mars: Self-Actualizer Or Sociopathic Lout?

Filed in Uncategorized

Occult Sexy Hot Tarot CardWith Mars barely into his long tour of duty in Virgo and turning Retro in two weeks, we all have to get our Mars on.

Mars is young, thrusting, super-aggro, ambitious, libidinal, hyperbolic energized young male style energy.  

Mars energy channeled right and it’s genius.  Mars Qi gone low-vibe is obviously hideous; raging, reckless, irritable, ignoring all the elements of a balanced life to go whoring off after one thing that’s probably a batshit insane idea anyway. Holding a grudge. I think we all know the manifestations of a lower Mars, yes?

This just reminded me of something i once read in a psychotherapy article (?); this shrink compared the holding of a grudge to setting your elite army to work guarding a graveyard. An army – like Mars energy – has to be bought to work: building your body, creating an empire, saving peeps…

So where is your Mars in your chart and how does he function for you?

Look at the Sign, the House and any aspects five degrees of under. Conjunctions – where the planets are tight together – are the most powerful so do those first. Then look at oppositions and squares – that’s like what your Mars HAS to deal with, whether he wants to or not.

The House where you have Mars is the area of life where you are insanely competitive, determined to win and ready to fight to secure your victory. You’re maybe also guarded, defensive and sporting a military mindset in this particular regard.

Mars with Saturn is unreal – Saturn tempers the Mars with wisdom and strategic powers. Or it can be Mars stifled by an austere authority type influence. Mars-Neptune can be a Shaman or it can be on the hooch 24-7.  Mars-Pluto is unbelievable powers of self-regeneration but it can be the closet obsessive…

The idea is to work your Mars in the most positive ways possible – accept his foibles, accentuate the awesome and, once you discover the likely negative, eliminate it.

Mars is like your inner warrior and now is the time to unleash him the most effectively.

Mars in Scorpio 11 th house conjunct Diana here. Interestingly in my progressed chart I have Mars in Sagg in 6th house. Does anyone work with progressed charts here. NO idea what any of it means 🙁

Mars conjunct mercury in the 8th house, trining Saturn in the 5th house. I can pretty much power through anything I put my mind too.

I just started yoga again and joined Yoga Journals “21 day yoga challenge” after having done 0 yoga since 2 and a half years ago when I dropped out of yoga teacher training.
It feels great! I was pretty surprised that I took it up again, didnt think I ever would.

Yes.. being born right smack in the mid 1960’s certainly makes for an interesting chart.. Of course all this was just a summary.. I have written much more about my life’s experiences on my blog.. And will continue to do so etc.. Yes, the mini-generation of Mercury in Taurus(1st) trine, Mars-Uranus-Pluto in Virgo(5th), opposing & sextile Neptune(r) in Scorpio(7th).. involved in that whole ‘mutable nodal grand cross’.. ie. like hearing a voice speak to me loud & clear in the middle of my balling my eyes out over the death of my son at an ‘Insight’ workshop(Saturn-Ceres-Chiron in Pisces –… Read more »

Aqua Mars here. house 10
Sextile Sun (Aries house 11)
Square Moon (Scorpio house 6)

So I have a pleasant side and an unpleasant side. lol Sounds about right.

Never really looked into the 10th house Mars placement….but it’s pretty spot on from what I’m reading so far. From the early goals. I have taken life too seriously a few times in my life, wanting respect from peers. But yet also not concerned with opinions of others.

Mars in 10th here, too, and similar to what you said stawr – take life more seriously than I would like to, but take it seriously anyway, crave peer respect, but I suppose that is because I do things My Way and would therefore value the endorsement. Also, I don’t want to upset people either, though. Mars is Pisces, my only water sign (it’s up against 6 air and 4 fire!!) – Venus is Cap, my token earth. So that part of my life is mud, perhaps. The gift du gab from all that hot air finds its way to… Read more »

Errrr. Mars 8th house Cancer, conjunct sun trine ascendant. Mars opposition Neptune, Mystic was saying something before about Mars opposes Neptune peeps being batshit.

So does Mars in 8th house intensify the batshit Neptune opposition (Neptune 2nd house)? I wonder….

Yeah Sun is also in the 8th, and Scorp ascendant.

My mars is like one of those cars with stick shifts. One step forward, two step backwards. And it’s like when Im motivated to do something or I’m trying to zoom forward, there’s always a huge glitch or some bitter Betty who wants to throw a wet blanket over my enthusiasm.. And I’m a water sun….wtf.

Thanks Mystic! This has been a good exercise for me, this evening. My Mars and Venus is ‘afflicted’, I attract the powerful, always have. They have helped me greatly, sometimes painfully, to get know myself, succeed in life, and grow immense confidence compared to the shy, very abused, frightened and insecure little girl, I was… I can be ridiculously impulsive, lazy, critical, obsessive, driven to extremes of workaholism, can have powerful violent/dangerous feelings of inner rage (esp. against animal/child abuse) and can be extravagant esp with knowledge gathering, extensive huge home library, going to the ‘enth degree.

No choice but to off load that energy somehow. Used to be super defensive. My uber Neptunian Piscean Pa with Moon in Aries bequeathed me an attack- before-you-are-attacked mode of defence I took years to shed. I relate this aspect of Mars/Neptune to him. Like to drive fast.

No, but she seriously has an elite army working double shifts at every graveyard in the city. There is a tribe of Unforgiven sitting on the porch at Christmas.

I read somewhere that as Uranus is in Aries, which Mars rules, this retro Mars transit will have an unusual, unpredictable flavour to it. Mars is transiting my Virgo 7th house crossing Uranus/Merc/Pluto conjunction several times over the next however many months in Virgo. Just realised I have been having seemingly ridiculous arguments with the Toro – he argues a point even when we are on the same page – which is infuriating. We both have Mars conjunct North Node in the 5th house too. Me: Mars in Cancer (detriment) and his is in Aqua. Love how Mystic’s posts often… Read more »

I do find his Sagg Moon can be classically preachy and not emo aware enough at times for my sensitive lunar Cancer; yet his Moon is exact conj my Ceres/Lilith conjunction in Sagg.

Moon is Exalted in the sign of Taurus. Mercury-Moon-Mars in (native) second house of Taurus ruled by lovely goddess Venus Aphrodite of the night – might like to sit in your lovely home, on your comfy sofa or big bed and count your money whilst listening to chilled music, have friends around and eat good food, drink the best wine. Earth Mars does not like to be rushed and asserts himself patiently, conservatively and in a practical way. Mars energy directed towards prosperity (of the second house).

Mars in Leo in the 4th house, adversely aspected by just about everything (OK, exaggeration, but not by much). Opposition Midheaven & Saturn; Square Neptune and Jupiter. I’m guessing that Mars in Leo would normally make a person very home-proud? Nope. I’m reclusive & secretive about my home space & almost never entertain. I do have this deep fascination with family origins & history but doesn’t almost everyone? My Leo Mars and Aries Moon are trine, at least (I’m guessing if they weren’t I’d be kind of… violent? Combative, anyway.) Wondering if anyone else out there is also dealing with… Read more »

I have Mars conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio in the 10th, within 10 degrees of the Midheaven, which also has Pluto and Saturn straddling it. With all of this stuff going on with the 10th house, I would think I am supposed to be intensely competitive in the work/career arena, but I just don’t feel it. I just finished a 2 year course to help me get a better job, but all I really want to do is some kind of hard labor. That’s what I thrive on; hard, backbreaking work.

I have a Mars in virgo retrograde in my birthchart in 5th house scorp, whatever that means – my usual Aries dynamism and energy has all but left me since I slipped into my Mars return and to know it is likely to get worse is a tad worrying.
I don’t understand how to work out conjunct etc but just noticed I have five planets retrograde in my natal chart (mars, mercury, pluto, neptune and uranus), which I’d love to know more about.

Mars in Cap in the 1st house opp Saturn. Im hoping Saturn is balancing my impatient jump in and get it done approach to life. I will admit I can be heavy handed, I guess. But I would consider myself assertive and pro-active. When focusing for others anyway. Just need to focus on me next.

Yep, like that one Lauren – my Mars in Scorp square VenusPluto in Leo (2nd/11th) is also very loyal – I do go to great lengths for friends and lovers. But if my loyalty is abused – that’s it. Over.

Mars in Libra in 12th, Virgo on cusp of 12th house. Totally agree with the hidden strength idea, and the behind the scenes with power and responsibility.

The Virgo ascendant is the caring/nursing aspect maybe? Plus raising 2 kids.

My Mars is probably my least favorite thing in my whole chart. Mars in Taurus, in the 6th house – lot of good it’s doing me, I’ve been unemployed for ages.

That sounds like a very powerful placement for Mars CM? Mars in Taurus? Wow. In the 6th, that’s very harmonious to Taurus and seems to demand perfection and a possibly extraordinary skill level. What’s not to like? Opposite Pluto/Asc and Squ the Sun does sound intense… I had an astro teacher briefly, she told me not to look so hard at what the aspect was, just see that they are actually in a relationship. That Mars has a relationship with Pluto, the Asc and the Sun is extremely potent and full of possibility, no? I’d make friends with this placement.… Read more »

Mars in Libra 8th House. I used to be a people pleaser and still very much am, but Saturn Return (not conjunct btw) has taught the limits to when this is blatantly handing power away. Instead, it now manifests as an almost automatic, intuitive manipulation of power. I’ve learned to get the best out of people by making them feel in control and empowered, even if they didn’t before. This has come most in handy in my team-leader and supervisor rolls. Naturally, the darkside of this was a youthful time of learning I could manipulate people almost invisibly into doing… Read more »

You’d think Mars in the 3rd would be a tad more energetic in a mercurial way, but am super direct too.

Mars and Neptune conjoined in my 12th house (Scorpio) sitting on the ascendent. Sextile Pluto in the 10th (Virgo), Trine the moon in the 8th (Gemini), Sextile Venus in the 2nd (Capricorn), Squaring the Midheaven where Uranus sits directly on. Just sayin.

Mars in Gemini in the 3rd house. It’s part of a grand air trine with my Sun and Pluto, and opposite Neptune. I work in a wordy (but alas not creative) profession and I’m definitely competitive in it. Actually when one has regard to my various planets in Aries together with my Mars placement, I don’t think I ever had any hope – even as a child my sister told me I was too competitive. I think she meant it as a negative thing, but I’ve never taken it as such. I wonder if the aspect with Neptune is responsible… Read more »

Yes, well…… A 2nd house late Taurus Sun, May 21, 1965.. almost a Gemini.. conj Jup-Venus-Nth Node in Gem.. Born with Mars in Virgo, my late Aries Ascendant ruler, just seperating from its exact alignment with Pluto in Virgo.. 3 degrees past Uranus in Virgo.. in my 5th house.. all closely trine a 1st house Mercury in Taurus.. in its ‘joy’.. all also almost exactly square the Gemini Nth-Sag Sth Nodes.. 2nd/8th houses.. All in ‘mutable cross’ with Saturn-Ceres-Chiron in Pisces, 11th. I grew up loving war & cowboy movies, & acting it all out.. ah yes, the Heroic death… Read more »

Hi Darrell. I was born the day after you and I am (just) a Gemini. I have also been on a long journey exploring alternate belief systems: astrology, Tarot, prehistoric European religions, mythology etc. I think it might be our Neptune trine Mars that draws us into these realms. And with Mars conjunct Pluto there’s a lot of oomph power to keep us going for the long-haul. Also Mars conjunct Aquarius makes us open-minded. With Taurus in Mercury we can be slow to process our thoughts and express ourselves but we get there eventually and are incredibly thorough on the… Read more »

Mars in Pisces, 12th house, conj my ascendant. I guess I would make a good artist if I had any talent.

Mars conj Sun pretty much exact, with Saturn trailing only by 3 degrees. One astrologer said this will make me blow hot and cold. All in the third house with no challenging squares, (tanks be to the good Lordy), just a sextile to Asc. I don’t think I”m as competitive as people think I am, Aqua is a bit too indolent to get too het-up about vanquishing anyone. I do seem to be able to scare anything fairly easily and can be difficult to argue with. I’m a slow-burn when it comes to Mars-like energy, but it being in Aqua,… Read more »

I have my Mars in Taurus (amongst others) opposed my Pluto in Scorpio.
Can’t really describe this, but I think I feel it sometimes.

Mars in Aqua 19degrees, True Node Aqua 15 degrees in 6th house. No aspects to other planets but Neptune being in Aquarius really shook me up. Neptune conjunct Pluto and Opp Saturn. Also had my Saturn return a few years into Neptune in Aqua. Did the hooch thing then went shamaness. I made it work after completely hitting rock bottom. I rebuilt everything one brick at a time. Looking at it from this perspective is all quite new to me as i’m still a beginner in astrology. This post and the other recent posts about Neptune have been really useful… Read more »

Dear Mystic Medusa! Call this a fan comment. Okay? 🙂 so, I’m a very passsionate astrology student (special interests in karmic and evolutionary) and I’ve been following your blog for a year now. I live in a Croatia, Europe. Okay, so, I find your posts very amuzing, sometimes it looks like there’s so much fun in astrology (only sometimes?c’mon people, we know that astrology is like super funny cosmic wisdom so simple yet so deep)…and so much of your knowledge is deep, inspiring, very inspiring. Thank you so much for existing! Namaste! Yours truly, Second house retrograde Mars in Capricon… Read more »

I have Mars in Aries in the 12th…

trine Saturn in Sagg at 19 degrees.
When I was a kid through teenage years I was a ruthless overachiever, super bright. I got into trouble for a few years, had to figure out who I really was and now I’m back to world domination mode. ^_^
