Natal Moon Sextile Mars ~ The Emotional Flame

Moon Aspects

The moon represents our emotional nature, our security and deepest needs. It containts our basic habits and unconscious reactions related to our past karma and upbringing. It is associated with the mother and with feminine energy in general, it is both our inner child and mother. It is responsive, receptive, reflective and instinctual. In our personal chart it shows how we respond to our environment emotionally.

Moon Sextile Mars

Both sextile and trine are probably the easiest of Mars-Moon aspects to deal with, although even the sextile can pose some difficulty when trying to juggle powerful emotions with impulses of action and desire. Often you try to impose mental control over volatile feelings. This is because previous experience has revealed an emotional volcano lurking in your depths, which can erupt aggressively and destructively whenever emotions are provoked or when prolonged stress cannot be contained any longer. Your temper can flare at such times; and, if emotional pressure builds inside, you can become argumentative just for an excuse to release blocked energy; yet, once the energy has flowed outward and the pressure diminishes, you feel much better - the question is, how much damage have you done? While the Martian energies encourage spontaneous, impulsive actions, the protective lunar instincts tend to pull you back, allowing time to think and re-evaluate your decisions; this usually prevents rash actions which may have detrimental consequences. Often though, the directions of your feelings and your willful actions synchronize well, co-operating to make aims achievable. One valuable asset is the temporary lunar block on impulsive action which ensures that you think before leaping. You may be skilled with financial matters, attracted toward enterprise and commerce due to recognizing suitable opportunities. Mars increases self-confidence, providing courage and initiative to take advantage of situations, and abundant energy to combine with emotional desires to help accomplish aims. Feeling confident and secure, you relish life's challenges; and even occasional failures do not diminish faith in your abilities. You take a philosophical view that you can't win them all, and then overcome the majority of challenges. An ability to co-operate well with others is an asset; and work involving co-workers or the public can prove successful, especially as your enthusiasm is easily shared with others, who become keen to participate on common projects. Your friendliness helps social communication; and you try to maintain decent relationships with all, attempting to resolve any disagreements by a willingness to openly discuss them and an ability to keep them in perspective. If such an approach fails, then an 'agreement to differ' is offered; and you hope that, if stalemate is reached, doors will still be left open for future resolution. You probably recognize that your first reactions are emotional. This influences ideas and perceptions of others; so minimize this by thinking things through. If still in doubt, cautiously give others the benefit of any remaining doubts. Rarely do you seek conflict, preferring to control inner pressures that can develop through emotional vulnerability. This is something learned through life experiences and then translated into a growing maturity, understanding, and integration. You generally enjoy and appreciate life, giving a high priority to domestic and family life, seeing home as providing a relaxed sanctuary. You prefer to release strong emotions through intimate relationships which, with a suitable partner, will flow positively and constructively.
