Mars Conjunct Ascendant Natal and Transit

Mars Conjunct Ascendant TransitMars conjunct Ascendant in the natal chart gives a very strong, courageous and independent nature. You come on strong even when meeting someone for the first time, often appearing aggressive at one extreme or sexy at the other.

Anger management can be a problem because your strong ego can be easily ruffled. This can make working with others difficult and lead to arguments and hostility. You project yourself very forcefully as if to show your strength and courage. People can easily sense this through your body language or even your aura at the subconscious level. It is possible that others may react aggressively towards you, and you will often make enemies.

Not being able to hide your intentions can get you into trouble, but people always know where you stand. Personal integrity and honor are strong points and will win you support. Just as you cannot hide your angry side, you cannot disguise your strong sex drive. You can ooze sexual magnetism and this does make you very attractive in a raw, militant or sporty kind of way.

You should be good at sports and this is a good aspect for success in war. Competition is one of the best outlets for your assertive energy, not only in sports but also the business world and in politics. Any area in which strength is respected would suit you. You can be counted on because of your work ethic and strong desire to succeed in any personal or professional goals you set yourself.

You may need to develop greater understanding and respect for those you are not strong like yourself. Your personal relationships will enjoy more harmony by being more sympathetic and tender to sensitive or weaker individuals.

  1. Hi Jamie, I have this aspect in my natal chart and can relate to everything you’ve written here. I have found Mars Conjunct my Asc by 4 degrees in my first house to be a blessing and a curse. I have dated 2 Aries in my life, it has never gone well. But I do relate to this energy, two of my closest friends are also Aries

    • Thanks for the feedback Helen, I always appreciate it, and so will everyone else who stumbles across this page.

  2. Donald Trump has this aspect. I must say he totally fits the description.I also have Mars conjunct Ascendant in Leo. Sometimes people think I am mad when I am not. Toning down the intensity is not easy, especially when you do not even realize how you come across. But my conjunction is trine Moon and Neptune in Sag, so that softens the deal a bit

  3. Hi, Jamie,

    If Mars is retrograde, does it change the meaning of transiting Mars conjunct ascendant?

    Thanks!

    • Mainly that you will have this transit 3 times instead of once. This could affect your one to one relationships.

  4. I have this natal and it’s been hard on me but I never knew just how much until I read this carefully. People can read my moods so I have tried to learn how to hide them. If I have a strong opinion it works against me. Lesath and raselhague conjunct thrown in doesn’t help. I am learning to turn down my intensity and try to be more nonchalant when I meet people that interest me. Mars is aspected favorably with Pluto-Jupiter, the sun, Mercury, Neptune and Uranus so I tend to land on my feet, even though the ground shakes around me quite a bit. My intensity and curiosity can easily be misinterpreted as animosity or rebellion. Thanks to your reading Jamie, I’m finally getting a handle on what has been my stumbling stones in life.
