Mars Sextile Ascendant
With Mars sextile the Ascendant, you usually express yourself with persistence and determination. You are fearless in saying what is on your mind, and careless as well. You assert yourself enthusiastically but impulsively. This lack of temperance in expressing your opinions tends to put people on the defensive. Because you are somewhat of a 'live wire', people come to expect the unexpected from you. With so much nervous energy, it isn't easy for you to sit still for very long. When your body isn't in motion, your tongue is, and this is how most of your problems in relationships begin. Although you may want harmony in dealing with people, it isn't evident from your actions. If you learn to reflect before you speak, you will avoid saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. You want to be admired by your friends for having a mind of your own and the courage to speak up when you feel you should. You need their support because you aren't always that sure of yourself. You work hard at your career, perhaps doing more than is expected of you if you work under supervision, and certainly so if you are self-employed. There is some danger that you actually do more than you should, because much of your effort comes from nervous energy. You feel challenged by competitors and want to prove that you are more competent than they are. By being well-informed, you are prepared to take on any responsibility when the opportunity is offered. You need greater self-discipline to get the full benefit of your creative ability. If you can consolidate your efforts towards a specific objective, you will always manage to succeed. Your zest for living is dramatically shown by your boundless enthusiasm in everything you do. Don't waste it in nonproductive enterprises or in a useless show of superior strength.
It is a good time for team work where you are a leader or taking on the initiative. Your energy is quite high so you will not have the patience for working with people who are too slow. Try to express your feelings to others as you are more clear about your point of view and can assert your perspective easier. Exercise or other hard physical work is also advised just try not to exhaust yourself. It is not a good time to lay about.
