Mars Aspects

Mars represents our ambition, energy, action and desire. It rules our basic instincts of aggression, anger and survival. There is often no contemplation before action when it comes to this primal energy. All our sexual desires come under Mars. This is the raw physical energy as opposed to the creative energy of the sun. With good Mars placement we are assertive, directed and forthright with bad placement we an be impulsive,rash and aggressive. In your chart, Mars shows your basic animal nature, how you express anger and what gets you angry and more importantly what makes you act.

Mars Conjunct Midheaven


Very early in life, you will develop a firm determination to do everything your own way. You decide upon a course of action quite quickly, and you usually know just what you want to accomplish. You long for independence, and need a great deal more of it than most people.
If someone tries to stop you, you get very angry, feeling that you are the only one who really knows what is right for you and what isn't. Sometimes this may well become true, but if it is, then another person's opinion shouldn't bother you. By being a little less headstrong and listening to what others say, but you could at least learn some things, even if you don't follow their advice.
However, you are not merely bull-headed, rather you also identify yourself with whatever you intend to do. And if someone questions your moves, you take it very personally. You must realize that you are more than the sum of your actions, and that when someone challenges your decisions, that person is not challenging you personally.
If you work for someone else, you will frequently feel more like a competitor than an employee, and if you don't like the pace set by your employer, you will feel very angry and hostile. You would not be at your best working in a team situation, with the possible exception of an athletic team, as this aspect indicates that you will choose a career in which you expend a lot of physical energy. This placement of Mars is very common among athletes, but even in a team sport you need to have opportunities to shine on your own in order to be happy.
