The Moon Conjunct Mars Sparks Audacity

surreal art photograph of a Shell service station in the middle of a forest

People born with the Moon conjunct Mars are feisty little fuqers, pugnacious and highly aware of their emotional boundaries. It’s almost like they see their psyche as turf that they run, like a gang boss or maverick cop. They’re brave as all get-out and don’t duck the self-awareness. Whether or not you are born with this snazzy aspect, you can ping off it once a month. When the Moon is in even the same sign as Mars, you’re hotwired straight to your psyche. People with unresolved issues tend to get tetchy or drive like maniacs. If you’re together or deliberately working this alignment for insight, you can use it to identify and overcome obstacles.

For example, the Moon conjunct Mars is fab for overcoming body-image angst and just showing up at the beach already. Or for flinging yourself into a sport/new workout regime. It’s when you can recruit the Warrior strength of Mars to augment your psyche. Or bring more intuition to your tactical, assertive process. A conjunction means that the two astral energies have to get along, like it or not. It is the strongest aspect of all. So there are three different Moon-Mars scenarios to think about. (And, by extension, this applies to any aspect in astrology.)

Their Deepest Instincts Are Hot-Wired Into Their Go-Getter Persona

(1) Natal conjunction – aka you’re born with it. This is the definition for that from my Astral DNA birth chart report.

Moon-Mars is the snazzy Bruce Lee conjunction. He had it in Scorpio. Regardless of the sign, Moon-Mars people have their deepest instincts hot-wired into their go-getter persona. If the instincts are good, they’re formidable. Bad instincts? They’re acted upon with the same alacrity.  These people are most relaxed when hurtling around pursuing a quest. Margaret Atwood – author of The Handmaids Tale  – has this. They are fearless and nimble on emotional turf others would hesitate to even enter. Another Moon-Mars woman: The poet Edna St Vincent Millay:  …My candle burns at both ends;

It will not last the night;

But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends— It gives a lovely light…”

(2) The Monthly Moon conjunct Mars – when the Moon crosses Mars. You can see this in the Moon Calendar if you know the current sign Mars is in. It’s also covered in the Horoscopes, usually mentioned when Mars is in your sign or it’s a particularly notable Moon – New, Full or an Eclipse. It’s a zippy little zone for asserting your rights and having courageous conversations.

(3) Mars transits to your Natal Moon. These can feel confrontational as in your comfort zone is invaded. But, with awareness, they’re opportunities to build strength and emotional muscle. 

Thoughts?

The Hose of the Avalon! If only i could relay the anal joke i made to someone today regarding how i felt about work pressures, followed by the accidental comment that gave me away somewhat, and the ensuing response.

Myst, it’s not off topic. It was to an Aqua, and it somewhat transcended the hide-and-seek of former convos…God it was hot!

It has been a cray last week for better or worse. Very uranian for sure. I can use a detached moon. My left shoulder got partially dislocated while attempting a sketchily taught handstand at a workshop. Popped it back in but still hurts. Wind blew car door shut while automatically locking magically all my id, $,keys in running car…but it was all good because I had to summon sick friend who I was not aware of illness and thus she got treatment. then wayward Gemini came back. Strangely I am not as LZ as I was back in sept-oct. But… Read more »

Daily Mystic email is super useful and inspiring. Have a meeting with my autie boy’s mainstream school tomorrow so will utilise these tips. Little Cap stopped going to his glass prison special school a month back. He desperately tried all the words he could find one morning and came up with, “Let me out. Open the doors. Make crazy. Want to go home? No choice..”. While the aide played dumb, which was infuriating. But as he cries being left with people he loves it can be confusing for me. But on the way to school the next day he said,… Read more »

Your boy’s school sounds amazing! I would love that for him, sadly the Victorian school system is far more stifling and rigid than what is allowed in NSW. But in any case I have had him at this mainstream school for two days all year and it has a garden and chickens and the most lovely aide. He told her he loved her the other day. If you knew how many times he said that in his life, you would understand the import of that. I will keep my eyes peeled for such opportunity as a school like you describe… Read more »

I love programs like this dL.

I see it as a kind of Tao thing. Just do what works, why fight when you can achieve success in different ways? Also can we pls redefine success while we are at it. X

Maybe the mainstream allows more space for him. Because mainstream has to fit in all these different shades anyway. Perhaps he’s growing through the need for purely “specialised” support and into the need for specialised support AT NEED, and to feel what that need is in the “mainstream”. Just, when you mention “stream” to a Piscean, in context of mainstream, we sort of get how you have to learn to swim, with all those currents, finding the current that suits your body, amongst all the different fishes. A school of fish can create a mini current, but not all the… Read more »

I’ve recognised Jupiter these days. This energy comes in and really stirs me up, literally this ain’t good enough big enough just enough in general. Then I break things down, leave, upset my own apple cart, find myself on my knees and then rebuild. By the end of it though life is usually much improved but it’s exhausting.

I just had this thought today, that occurred to me whilst avoiding writing. The seasons of the spirit seem to go in 12 year cycles. I’ve counted back over my time on the planet and noted there were definite times of growth when new energy came out of nowhere. Then a time of relative abundance when everything seemed like a cruise. Then the fall came … things start to die, drop off, disappear. In comes my tortured shame that I’ve done something wrong … but no. It’s a natural cycle. Then winter. Hopefully I’ve bunkered down enough to see myself… Read more »
