Sun Conjunct Mars Natal and Transit

Sun Conjunct Mars TransitSun conjunct Mars in the natal chart makes people passionate about asserting their identity. These are people who fight at all costs to be themselves. They will always look after number one, yet they are great in an emergency, fast reactors and focused soldiers. Highly sexed, they enjoy the conquest. Though fantastic initiators, endurance might not be their strong point. Mars is pretty raw and untamed, so they tend to be brash and bold, sometimes vulgar.

There’s no frills or finery with Mars, it’s blunt and to the point. The creative fire of the Sun combined with the forceful speed of Mars makes these people driven and ambitious. They usually get what they desire and don’t react well to rejection. Saying that, their rampant self-assertion is awe-inspiring and they can achieve much if their objectives are honorable. The projection of their sovereignty a marvel to behold.

Transiting Sun conjunct Mars brings an abundance of energy and initiative which must be burnt up in a constructive manner otherwise there can be damaging consequences. If this hot energy were to build up in the body, then it would be spontaneously released without control. Such a release of uncontrolled hot energy would be rapid and destructive, hurting yourself or others. Although the manifestation of this transit can be positive or negative depending on how it is used, I consider it to be generally negative because of the potential for damage.

Remaining unaware of the buildup of energy can lead to accidents, aggression, temper tantrums, and even violence or rape. You will initially notice the buildup of energy as irritation, annoyance or impatience. At this stage or preferable beforehand, the best option is to consciously apply yourself to a positive form of activity. There is great potential with this transit to transform the hot energy into something very constructive and productive.

The creative nature of the Sun conjunct Mars can be applied to art or even better sculpture, and other creative pursuits such as dance. Physical activity is preferred but the brain can also burn up a lot of energy. Sex drive can go through the roof and baby making fits the role as both creative and productive, enjoyable too. You can express your identity through physical actions.

A high degree of assertiveness and initiative is ideal for starting new projects. An inflated ego should be contained if working with others at this time. This, together with your direct or abrupt attitude means than working alone is preferred. In your personal relationships, it is important to remain conscious of how others perceive you. They may feel threatened or dominated, and react with aggression or spite. If you feel an argument brewing or are provoked, it would be wiser to back down to maintain harmony.

If however, you or your loved ones are threatened and in danger, this is an excellent transit for going on the attack. You muscles are primed to act on instinct when the Adrenalin kicks in. In a fight you don’t need to think, just do.

This interpretation for Sun conjunct Mars transit can also be read for a Solar Eclipse and New Moon conjunct Mars.

  1. I’m sun-mars in sagittarius (the traveler adventurer one) I chose airplane pilot as a career and the accident/violent death thing made me nervous 🙁

  2. I have a Mars-Sun conjunction, whereas my Sun is 29 Libra and my Mars 3 Scorpio, in the 11th house. There’s a super deep drive in my consciousness to help others be truthful with themselves, and i struggle with being able to do that diplomatically and not dictatorially. I’m reeeeally sensitive to when I may be cmoing off like an asshole or a jerk (sometimes I even ask), and other times I need to learn how to hold true to what I’m saying/feeling and continue to speak truthfully to the person, because some people will deny deny deny, and then come to a breakthrough if you have staying power with your intensity.

    lol, okay, rant over.

  3. I have Sun 29 Libra conjunct Mars 28 Libra in 10th house conjunct MC. I am a tireless, hard worker and never give up until I have accomplished what I set out to do. I have been successful in my professional life. I am always on the go and cannot stand inactivity. There is a lot of nervous energy in me. I am somewhat of a control freak and like to have my own way.

  4. I have Mars-Sun conj in Leo/H7. I can relate to some of the comments here about being a natural asshole and it’s mainly because I see the potential in others that they don’t. I have proven this time and time again when I have got behind a friend and encouraged them to embark upon whatever they may have put aside in the past. Since a very young age I was involved in sports and excelled. I continued to compete into my 20s but mainly did so for my own passion. It was never to beat anyone, it was camaraderie for me, I am good sport. While relationships are important to me, it is vital my partner reaches his maximum potential, whatever it may be. This does not equate to monetary success in the least, that is irrelevant to me. My nervous energy is expressed through art and poetry and have since childhood. The only complaint about my sun/mars is that it is opposite my ASC and while I like a good debate, I don’t care for the strong personalities I attract. I don’t like to retaliate, but if I have to be a bigger asshole then them to get them off my back, I will!

  5. This isn’t very helpful for you, but i’m sure i got Nick Cave’s birth time came either from a biography or article i was reading. I’ve had it in my system for a long time. It is probably accurate, as his son was killed last year when transiting Pluto & progressed Venus were tightly conjunct his AC……
