Sun Conjunct Mars


Sun Conjunct Mars indicates the presence of an energy that is masculine in essence, being highly vitalized, vigorous, forceful and assertive. The application and exploitation of your powerful will becomes a major impulse that demands expression, often resulting in a more self-centered level of preoccupation, focused on satisfying your desires and ambitions.
You have an aggressive, combative temperament, which can respond quickly to any hint of a threat or potentially competitive situation, and you see these as an opportunity to display your force and innate abilities and talents. You often feel a need to prove yourself to the world through achieving or rising to a higher social profile than the majority. You tend to assume attitudes of superiority, which are often derived from a strong confidence, and inwardly you hold a self-image as a leader.
An urge to battle lies near the surface of your personality, and you approach life as if it is a constant challenge, often provoking encounters by throwing down the gauntlet as a test of your strength and power. To some, you seem overly assertive, and your presence can threaten them by its forceful vibration.
You may acquire many adversaries in the course of your journey through life, especially as you are liable to be insensitive to others' feelings. This can occur particularly within your employment or business life, where you are likely to be in contact with other powerful individuals.
You intensely enjoy applying your willpower and may need to pay extra attention to your relationship manner and style of expression, as this could become a source of contention and downfall if it is misapplied. A tendency to anger quickly may also need some control, or words spoken in haste could ruin relationships or friendships. You react against limitations and restrictions and find adherence to the status quo or repetitive routines anathema to your vibrant spirit.
You love action, and find the adrenaline rush of physical or dangerous sports and activities is highly appealing. Your enthusiasms can be spontaneous and impulsive, and you like to leave space in your lifestyle for sudden decisions and changes of direction which can renew vitality and add a touch of freshness when routines become familiar.
You may be attracted to share this love of life and excess energy with others, stimulating them to break free of their self-imposed ruts and shake off their apathy. Some, however, don't appreciate your endeavors, and so you need to recognize when your efforts fall on stony ground.
There is an opinionated streak in your character that can take offense if anyone challenges your values, thoughts or beliefs, and you tend to take it as a personal attack, rather than a sharing of differing points of view. You can adopt an attitude of 'I'm right, and you're wrong' in such encounters, and refuse to consider alternative perceptions. This can be restricting of your openness to life's many wonders and infinite variety of perceptions.
In relationships, you do not easily compromise, as you tend to be self-centered and concerned about fulfilling your desires. This could become a problem unless it is carefully modified, or you end up with an extremely passive and supportive partner. A strong sexual drive and inflamed passions are likely factors in your relationships, and you may be especially attracted to sudden love affairs, particularly when they seem like conquests.
While you are likely to possess considerable creative abilities, you have difficulties in focusing these constructively and consistently, and despite your high level of activity, you tend to waste energy that could be more positively applied. Part of this is due to an impulsiveness that prefers action and momentum to forethought and planning, and this tendency may need tempering by better management of your resources and less haste in charging towards your objectives. Listen to the advice of others or take professional suggestions; you may not always know best.
Your focus is power through action, and the main areas that this can be released through are the conjunction house, and the houses ruled by both Sun and Mars in your chart. Look at these, as they may offer additional opportunities for a successful use of your talents and energies, especially when you begin to handle them with greater self-understanding.
