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.
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,
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.
