Moon Conjunct Mars NatalMoon conjunct Mars in the natal chart gives an emotionally passionate nature. These people have a zest for life and their infectious energy can rouse the passions of others. They wear their heart on their sleeve and it is healthier for them to share how they feel. In fact they may find it difficult not to let their strong emotions out, which has given this aspect a reputation of giving emotional rashness and a hot temper.

But this is simply a side effect of having such enthusiasm and energy for life. These sexy lovers and fierce fighters need a constructive outlet for their passions so the hot energy doesn’t turn in and destructive. Dramatic emotional displays are a good thing, sometimes.

Moon conjunct Mars Celebrities

Excellent examples of how to express this tremendous energy are found with pocket-sized hot pants dynamo Kylie Minogue (73′) and sexy Latino superstar Ricky Martin (67′). They have drawn massive followings not just because of their musical ability, but importantly in how they give their abundant energy to the crowds. Listening to them sing, and watching them perform leaves you invigorated by the passion of Moon conjunct Mars.

Natalie Cole (90′) also shared this energy but she shows the negatives which can come about when the energy is not expressed safely and begins to consume the self. “Cole continued to spiral out of control – including one incident where she refused to evacuate a burning building” [Wikipedia]. Other Moon conjunct Mars celebrities include fixed stars astrologer Elsbeth Ebertin (73′), evangelist Billy Graham (89′) and poet and author of “I, Claudius”, Robert Graves (89′).

  1. OH and perhaps when you have done as much for orphaned children and stricken communities you can be so harshly negative of Angelina Jolie.

    • She doesn’t do SQUAT for anyone but HERSELF; if you actually pay attention to what she is doing, it is readily apparent she is USING the poor to get PUBLICITY; plus she (AND the CIA) has created a complete MEDIA FACADE to hide the fact that she is a DRUG MULE for them!

      Pay attention and you will see how all the countries she visits are all producers of illicit DRUGS; how she flies to these places in PRIVATE JETS (the DRUG CARTELS own most of the private jets out there; funny that someone who is supposedly such a “humanitarian” >big eyeroll< flies around in private jets, hmmm?) and how she spends all of 5-10 minutes getting her PICTURE taken with the po'folks (so as to create the IMPRESSION of "humanitarianism" as part of her "cover" in the media) while that private jet's secret compartments are being "loaded up"…then it's back to the 5-star hotel to sip champagne (and god alone knows what else) with the local officialdom, then back to the US or Europe where the "cargo" is offloaded! (F'r instance, her most recent "humanitarian"/drug mule schtick was performed in COLOMBIA, when she was there just BEFORE Cannes; what's a movie event without its nose candy, eh?)

      I am sure her recent 'promotion" to "Special Envoy" is a private UN/CIA joke…an "envoy" is a "COURIER" (as in "someone who delivers PRODUCT") She's a GEMINI after all: one thing about Geminis: you can always count on there being "another side" to them you don't know about. Angelina is no exception to this rule. What is especially despicable (aside from her using refugees as publicity tools) is the fact of her using her CHILDREN to cover her DRUG DEALING. But hey: no surprise there: she's got PLUTO ruling her Fifth House, so "evil, criminal,and sinister activities involving children (added to the fact of that Moon/Mars conjunction opposing Pluto) would be the order of the day with her!

      Mars/Pluto aspects appear with disturbing frequency in the charts of serial killers, rapists, and violent criminals; I have quite a lot to say about THAT in regard to the Satanic witch Angie J., but I won't; what I have said should be "sufficient unto the day"!.

      • Mars/Pluto also in the charts of those who have been abused. Of course many abusers have of course been abused too. The cycle continues…. I think the “sexee” being the supreme aspiration of womanhood definitely fades after the age of 45. As Uber once put it, (I hope I’m quoting this right) One is free of the “tyranny of oestrogen”. Maybe in Mars/Moon you are then allowed to express the rage!

  2. I’m coming into this conversation late, but I felt I had to comment. I have moon conjunct mars in leo (4 degree orb) in 2nd and 3rd house and have certainly got the passionate, friendly and temperamental side but I’ve never ever had problems finding or keeping friends, in fact I am still friends with all my old friendships even though none of them speak to each other any longer. I have a wonderful relationship with my mother also, she is an amazing and very supportive person in my life, and I am very proud of her (leo). My family are Sicilian so the flying off the handle applies to us all, even though I’m the only one with this aspect and I am the quietest and most patient of my whole family. Maybe the Virgo sun makes a difference, but I don’t think it’s correct for people to have only the opinion or understanding of Vajranagini to take with them in regards to this aspect. Thank-you for a brilliant site and a fantastic learning opportunity.

  3. If you actually read what I wrote you will see that the opinion about Moon conjunct Mars is ALAN LEO’S opinion on the aspect, and not “mine”. I offered it as a counterbalance to the omnipresent annoying Newage tendency to ‘sugarcoat’ everything.

    And yes, no doubt the Virgo Sun has something to do with the fact that you are not as much of a perverse jerk as the aspect would tend to indicate; the situation of every other planet in your natal chart in aspect to this Moon/Mars aspect plus the HOUSE POSITION strongly affects the ultimate expression of the aspect; f’r instance, if it is situated in the Seventh House, you would tend to ATTRACT perverse jerks, rather than BE one yourself.

    Also, one’s GENDER has a great deal of effect on ther expression of Moon/Mars; surely you have heard that “women are Venus and men are Mars”? Women (and society)are much less comfortable with the notion of women expressing their Mars energies, so any Martial tendencies on the part of women tend to get pushed into the shadow side of the personality.If you are a man, however, you will likely encounter this energy in the form of “difficult” women (especially if they are mothers), or in the area of “children” (Leo rules the 5th house of “children”)

    • Thank-you for the reply Vajranagini. I did read that it was Alan Leos opinion of the darker side of the aspect, it did seem to me that you were taking his view however (that’s how it came across) and of course you have obviously observed that in others with this aspect. I wanted to give an example of someone with the aspect who agrees with all of what was written by Jamie, in my own experience. I don’t think it’s sugar coated. I have a terrible temper but it hasnt frightened any of my friends away as you expressed from your observations. I understand that other aspects and parts of the chart contribute to this, and that’s what everyone who is trying to learn about astrology needs to know. My best friend also has this aspect (triple Leo) and has many good friendships also. That probably is because we are so warm, passionate, enthusiastic and have a great zest for life ( all of what was given in the description of this aspect). I understand there is a counterbalance to every view, that’s all I was offering to Alan Leos view. I just tend to agree with Jamie’s description overall (in my experience). I have outlets to express the angry side of the aspect otherwise as stated it does turn inward and becomes destructive (to self!). It’s interesting what you say about men with this placement in the 7th or 5th, makes sense.

  4. I have a moon conjunct mars not even a degree apart in the 6th house, I feel a brunt of negative mars/moon in my relationships though. I also have a virgo venus placement which could be the reasoning. I am a virgo sun. I have an 8th house venus placement, and also an 8th house jupiter placement. Would someone mind going a little more in depth on this for me?
    because virgo is debilitating for venus, but jupiter is good right? However I am in the 8th house… My sun is in the 9th house. Please help ?

  5. PS. I am a sag rising, and my saturn, neptune and pluto are in my first house in capricorn. I always find myself trying to teach my partner, and become very rigid and over powering, I am quite frightening when angry, and when I am angry it is very difficult for me to calm down. I do not become angry all the time though, just about certain things. ESPECIALLY MY LOVERS ACTIONS, SPEECH, BEHAVIOR. I dont feel like I am mean and bossy either, I simply feel that I am trying to help teach this person how to act in many different ways. I’m always looking to brighten something about their personality. If they are not very caring about others, or if they are not very caring about me, that is usually a huge problem.

  6. Hi- I have a 13 year old daughter She is the prettiest cutest smartest and most creative child I have and she surpasses others in those categories…Highly talented.Note: Twice in life from the time she was 4 we had to worry and hold our breadth because of her unrealistic desire to be close to friends going as far as social services entering the picture I have had to go above and beyond t fight to make things right! She has exhausting temper tantrums when I would have to leave for work or school all life was a crisis ! I had to get a child Leash for which I made her wear for about 3 years when we went out Walmart was beginning to get ready to make that code Adam when they saw us arrive after what 5 visits. She is selfish and rude and utterly insincere and YES her behavior lately is too OMGish !!! Her moon is stuck between MARS on one side and PLUTO on the other and Opposes her Gemini sun I think her saving grace will be the trine from mars to 1st house venus in Aries-Shes mean bossy and controlling when we moved overseas she practically took over her class room I went for a visit one afternoon and she was answering questions while standing by her teacher and doing assistant work for her !! Her favourite past time was creating desks and mini offices and she could pretend everything from being a lawyer (brief case and files made with her own cases and folders) a cup for pens, a name plate -she carries with her paper and pen wherever she goes when she was 2 at the check out counter she so liked watching me sign my check book we had to make a pretend check book for her and the cashiers let her sign our grocery receipt-she called it “SIGNING” Mommy can I sign this time?She loved it when I took her along to my college Art classes-the instructors were always impressed by her attentiveness-which she now entirely LACKS She -She needs friends around her or she feels empty and she cant stand being in the same room with me Nothing I say matters it goes into one ear and out the other…………..oooooh advise please…she tries mothering me ! and I always have to stop and turn it around by using my ANGRY SHADOW MOM VOICE-That’s something no one wants to hear not even myself…but its compelled and pulled out of me-her friends end up coming to the door-“sorry we cant find her here’s her shoes…we had a fight…..Shes later found hiding in they’re DRYER?????? asleep??
    She always hides in small places…whats she going to do when shes is 6 feet tall!–I keep asking myself where IS the obsessiveness in me but fact #1 Im Aquarius with a 3 degree conjunction to my mars and with Saturn just a few degrees away from it Im about as FREE thinking as one can get and in no way fanatical maybe too freedom oriented but I have that saturn which I believe is the breaking point for me well thats a deep subject – I agree with this posting whole heartedly-GOOD ONE!!!

  7. Perhaps the hiding and distance…is that sun mars conjunction of mine…I have a MORE VOL ITAL temper than hers….I guess no I know im to blame for that one…its all the things that happen around her which brings it out. I would hide in a dryer from me too…….Parenting, Not easy and a challenge for everyone….But well worth the time….hauling out the love in BIG LOADS gets harder to do as they mature.
