Mars Conjunct Ascendant Style

Filed in ZODIAC FASHION

Alien CthluthuDress

What is the ultimate Mars conjunct Ascendant style? Well, you’d say red as it is the classic Mars color but we’re talking about Mars in Libra.

Dear Mystic,

I feel as if I want to dress too many styles at once. At one moment I want to evoke a super vampy vibe, and at the next, I want to be an Instagram beauty with a style that rivals the Kardashians. I just want to focus on one thing. But as soon as I plan out my style, I get this sense of satisfaction and then change my mind the next day. There doesn’t seem to be an in-between for me.

I’m a Sun/Venus/South Node/Pluto in Scorpio and Mars conjunct Ascendant in Libra. 

I just want to figure out what aesthetic will let me shine so I don’t end up with a clashing closet.

Thanks for reading,

Multifaceted Scorpio

Dear Multi-Faceted Scorpio,

Ignore the image at the top of this post. That is just a pic i have been longing to put up for ages. I am not sure who would actually wear it is but it is a “Cthulhu” Dress – based on the monster from one of the scariest horror stories ever, by H.P. Lovecraft. You read it, getting lulled by the old style language and then wham; ghoul shivers.

Anyway,  I think with Libra Rising and that Mars oomph, you can do better than “rivaling the Kardashians.”  But you’re right in that Mars in Libra Rising is an inherent contradiction. Libra is ruled by Venus – arguably the Yin to the Yang of Mars.

However; you have your fellow Mars in Libra Rising Style Muses to look for inspiration.  How did they or do they navigate the cognitive dissonance between Mars in a Venus-ruled Ascendant?

The Duchess of Cambridge would be a good example as she is constantly in the public eye but i think the constraints of her position possibly mute Mars quite a lot.

But i think we can all agree that red really is the color to oomph up a Mars Vibe. Red = Mars = Yang.

Another Mars in Libra Rising person – for when you want to totally take it over the top?  Anais Nin, the writer, and inspiration for many an existentialist affair.

A what-not to do in the form of Jackie Stallone, mother to Sly and possible over-user of fillers/permanent make-up – I think Mars can go too far and refuse to take advice, in some cases.

Finally, the only other Mars In Libra rising example that i can find, Ms. Helena Christensen. She has the clear advantage of natural awesome beauty. But still, she gallivants around the place in variations of boho frocks in pink/burgundy or jeans, set off by tousled hair. Her alien level glow probably has more to do with her consumption of Lions Mane or doing Shadow Yoga.

As I am starting to sound like the Daily Mail on acid, i will stop now but hopefully, this has been helpful.

What does everyone else think about Mars conjunct Ascendant style? And check out chick behind Helena. She looks like she is in the process of turning zombie for her.

Mars Rising to me spells andro-look- sleek, athletic, ready to rush the stage or sprint to a cab. No encumbrance. Breathable fabrics- authoritative jacket or top- but easily doffed.

someone said but i can’t see where, that the lady behind Christensen actually looked great. I agree ! fabulous in fact. And those legs. waaoouu 😀

Oooh, fun post. I was hoping to see “series” stated somewhere. I really like Kate’s bold red dress. With Uranus in Scopio rising, the only thing that seems to be constant for me is black clothing and bold eye make-up. Otherwise, I switch up what I wear, often from boredom. I wish I had more time to sew, because wearing something original is the best.

Recently with Mars vamping up Scorp hitting Jup & Uranus occasionally has found me buying or wanting to buy red/burgundy/sparkly things which get smacked down by my Scorp Rising and transiting Saturn in Scorp and Saggo. It’s like I have 2 gremlins wanting to come out and style me. I am managing to control spending spree and still getting new items in red that go with old wardrobe though. Yay for Structured transformation!

I have air rising – Gem Asc. I used to have a huge wardrobe with every single style of clothing known to man or woman in it. I could have dressed a theatre troupe. By necessity I have a semi uniform now, but before I think people thought I had multiple personality disorder. Was fun tho

Pi

I both understand and agree (except on the uniform part which I am not sure I will ever manage)

Mothers need a uniform or lots of munny. Kids be messy, cooking is messy, washing everything and everyone is messy. If you have sproginate you my have to suit up!

oh yes – i figured that was the only reason you uniformed. if sprogs want in on my life they had better send an envoy soon, in the form of their father, lol 😉 x

Oh I can so relate to this, I am not a Scorp but have Pluto/SN there in the first and am Libra rising with Mars ruling Venus. I think the recent Uranus opp to my ascendant has been messing with my style as well, but it’s getting out of orb and I feel like I’m starting over, style-wise.

I can so relate to your astro, Multifaceted Scorpio. I have Libra Rising but Venus is flanked by Mars and Pluto, in Leo. I think that your ASC/Mars in Libra is a fabulous placement for punchy & elegant Style – you have the best of all worlds to play with. Mars gives you oomph, Libra elegance, and Scorp, charisma and mystery. It’s a mix & match paradise. You can mix the ultra feminine with the masculine, the soft with the hard, e.g., a masculine suit or jeans with soft feminine shirt; or a boho dress/skirt with jacket; the darkly alluring… Read more »

There was a humorous post on truth in Scorpio dating profiles the other day – that picture was, for me, the perfect expression of Scorp Sun and Libra Rising…THAT woman in THAT dress…needless to say I am completely in love with it

Scorp woman in a libra dress. Or actually make that vice versa… The two seem polar in the floaty chiffon v polished hair/makeup. But then I thought Dita, gwen stefani… Librans of the uber coiffed iconic makeup school.

Exactly…and the same response to your comment above re Kardashians and Helena’s dress…nope, boho can be way more stylish

Unicorn SparklesMM Member
Unicorn Sparkles

When I read style and kardashians in the same sentence I nearly choked on my wheetbix.

And Helena has a weird thing with the boho dressing. She either looks good or like some mothball ridden odd coloured crochet creation just retrieved from dusty storage with nothing romantic or appealing about it.

Having said that both are worth a hell of a lot more than I will ever be and they can wear whatever they want.

Style being an expression of you… Find you. Find your style.

lol! I agree.
“When I read style and kardashians in the same sentence I nearly choked on my wheetbix.”
I always thought they didn’t possess any style just haute couture mall wear. Not a fan of them at all.

I have mars in scorpio in my mc in libra and its conjunct my venus in sag in the 11th house. MM once described me in astrohack as the perfumed assassin. I always like to wear something in oxblood color and i think it really suits me well. Even my lipstick is oxblood. Its such a stopper since i work in a psych ward. My patients dont act out and my shift is always quiet. ?

the behind helena chick looks terrific

i have the same problem!
a sweet cancer sun+venus conjunction AND mars+saturn rising in scorpio
where do you go with that?
it’s like what i want to communicate with my looks is that i’m really sweet and gentle but DON”T TOUCH ME AND DONT OGLE GO AWAY

colors: black, dark grey/khaki/purple/blue, red, and a bit of metallic here and there.
my cancer venus loves white/off-white/sandy shit, but then i don’t feel like myself when i try to wear it

I’ve got Mars at 0 Libra, which is 4 degrees past my AC. I have no idea what my style is at the moment. I’ve done periods where I only wore jeans, periods when I only wore dresses, short hair, long hair, conservative, “edgy”….maybe Mars in Libra ups the indecisiveness?

Ooh I would like to know if that is how it works. I do think of Mars as a kind of battery.

the cut of the chthulu dress would be incredibly flattering and i love the pattern on the skirt but the hideous yellow eyes and grotty daemon nostril-holes right at the heart (read: boobs) level makes me think “gross why would you” I have venus in aries in my house of PR (10th) which is sort of like mars libra rising, maybe I say, it is your scorpio fixity which wants you to be sartorially consistent / remain below laboratory detection thresholds. all black or all beige with breton stripes is the only way to “not clash” lol in my experience,… Read more »

the middle ground being the things you can switch to go from insufferable instagram princess to chthulu-whisperer in one swish of a blood red- (sorry, cherry-)hued cotton-rayon knit dress.

YES.

As an avid black lover the tones and textures MUST match.

Eff trends – period.

I like to wear ‘simple’ but with an edge. But come night it’s ALL drama.

My one fashion rule: expose the shoulders/ cleavage, length down bottom. Expose the legs, cover the top. My only exemption is one short dress that has a trail attached. Oh, and the beach and around the house.

Once again – fuck trends.

Pi
Pi

thanks for understanding 😀

yes i agree it is about judicious balance between exposure / coverage, loose / tight, sequins / glitter hahahaha.

trends though. it’s interesting. At some point a leetle update is good. Like you I tend to ignore the hell out of them but also, the lines, you see. a pant, a shoe, a lip, a hem

oh god I love the fahshorn use of le singulier, dahling

What does mars in Libra rising mean? Does it mean Mars is ON her ASC? or does it mean they are both in Libra?

moonstarkMM Member
moonstark

it would mean both, unless it was an out of sign conjunction, but seems they are both in libra here. Planets conjunct the rising sign alter its expression, and are sometimes called “X planet rising.” Any planet here has more oomph than just being in the first house because it’s working in tandem with the energy and expression of the AC. does that make sense?

Cthulhu would make the biggest piece of sushi I could score. I love that dress but seriously with my new style it wouldn’t come out very much these days.

Saturn transiting my ASC currently and all.

From a male perspective the most attractive women are those that lead with a look that draws you to their face, and facial expression. Nothing should interrupt that. You don’t notice what they are wearing because it’s all just a calm background hum to the eyes, face and mouth. if one gets drawn to the shoes or skirt or top etc I’m already objectifying by proxy. My mind is saying “aha, she’s trying to make me think she’s …..” And my logic is well she either doesn’t know who she is or she’s trying hard to make me think …… Read more »

Agreed.
Understated from the neck down does it for me too. And eyes are 70% of the shooting match. In fact all my relationships have been kicked off with eye contact
Seeing a woman from a distance can catch me. But not close up. In fact even mild displays turn me off. And overt displays are verboten.

And just bcos lm Kat Sun & Asc with strong Scorp tones doesn’t mean l have abreasted development.

You know powder I’ve learnt from experience that the ladies don’t give a shit what men think about their choices in fashion. Thanks for responding but I think we are talking to the hand.

I get where you’re coming from – and it’s admirable, Pfinger. But personally, i agree with sphinx, re boring. Like cooking without ever using any condiments … might be healthy but ultimately boring as… when you can add a pinch of salt to bring out the flavour. And what are patatas bravas without aioli? Curry without spices?

Site arsehole, LOL – now you’re fiishing! 😉

Curry without spices = edible.

Like everything its a blend of differing appreciations. I think some women give curt regard to what men think all the way thru to, “Does this [clothing] go with this?”. I have actually had professional colleagues, women, ask me this before going to a meeting. I just say, “Are you intellectually prepared for battle with the (whatever educationese nutjob / office holder) you are going to see?”. To me, the soundest argument / proposition will beat appearance anyday. I also like lyrically emphasised songs over some fuqn useless dance beat. Also why put petro-chemicals on your face and wear spine… Read more »

If your knees are stuffed and your feet are a size that requires shopping for men’s sizes like mine then you end up with no options beyond the octogenarian d width home shufflers stocked in the comfort section.
I don’t know whether I should be sad or grateful really.

I’d be a little concerned if pre meeting someone was more concerned with their outfit than their game plan.

I call my style a cross between ‘Gothic Couture’ and ‘Pagan Glam’ – AW for the former, SS for the latter.

With all that Mars and LIBRA why not suggest…striking fashions in traditionally feminine colors? Or the mix of romance with kick-ass? A beautiful white Victorian blouse with nice high-waisted fitted pants and a gorgeous quality boot? Hair could be a gorgeous up-do (with ONE killer accessories) OR a loose ponytail with some killer dramatic eye vibe.

Elegant gypsy inspirations? “Plain” flowing vibes with dramatic, high-end jewelry?

I have no doubt genius suggestions will ensue, please excuse my pittance ;P <3

If only the Daily Mail who drop some acid or take group trips to South America or something. Can’t get enough of this style of style analysis.

That dress on Helena is beyond. Senza parole.

Mars Asc peeps do look incredible in shades of red.

I am assuming you don’t mean Helena’s dress! Though I can imagine that with denim jacket too. I have Venus in the 1st so I love a maxi.

That works. Leather better for this look I think! Love a faux hawk. I don’t care how I look in a maxi, I love how they feel. Muu muu’s, maxi’s and poncho’s all the way! (Though not all together)
