Sun Square Mars Natal and Transit

Sun Square Mars TransitSun square Mars in the natal chart creates a very tense energy inside which looks for expression through some kind of action, sport, sex, creative self-expression. These people need to be doing something all the time. The square causes obstacles in self-assertion which have to be overcome with the courage and fighting spirit which comes naturally.

On the negative side this can lead to setbacks, frustration and may boil over as arguments, fights or tantrums. Once the energy finds a safe way of expression, then the tremendous energy can lead to great achievements in Mars activities such as sport, military endeavors, fighting for a particular cause, even dramatic acting. The fiery willpower really does need a useful outlet to stop this warlike energy turning on the self or loved ones. Competing and winning is important to maintain a healthy ego.

Stacy Keach (0°12′) is a great example of turning setback into achievements. Born with a cleft lip he underwent many operations as a child leaving scars both physically and to his ego. Through his long acting career he usually wore a moustache to hide the scars. Now he has turned to energy out as a fighter. As honorary chair of the Cleft Palate Foundation he fights to get insurance coverage for people to have the corrective surgery. Earlier in his career, Stacy caused harm to himself and his loved ones through drug abuse and ended up in prison. Again he turned this setback into something useful by fighting back and winning, starting an anti-drug crusade once he was released.

Sun Square Mars Transit

Transiting Sun square Mars can lead to tests of character from your competitors or enemies. The boss or men in general may be looking to assert their power, leading to ego conflicts. You may already be irritable and impatience, and likely to react to any provocation or threats with aggression.

Not only people, but challenging events may force you to defend your goals or desires. This is not a winning transit so a defensive position is advised. This is certainly no times for initiating a conflict or asserting your ego. Do not go on the offensive because your strength and courage are at a low point. It is better to submit to authority, seek a compromise or retreat if you or your goals are challenged.

This transit can lead to a buildup of anger, resentment or sexual frustration. Such potentially destructive energies need to be channeled constructively so they do not result in conflict, accidents, muscle pain or exhaustion. Burning up this hot energy will also reduce the risk of being subject to aggression and threats from ego trippers and authority figures.

Exercise, masturbation or hard work are preferred so long as you don’t push too hard and strain something. Working on a pet project is best done alone.

  6. I have this aspect natally as well. It has affected past relationships, which left me feeling like an awful person. I recognize that I need to find a better outlet. I’ve mainly been trying to address this through taking space (solitude), and don’t feel that is very healthy for me, even though I need it to recharge at times. It’s interesting you mentioned acting. When I was younger, I wanted to act, but fear took over and I let it go. Maybe I should confront that fear and at least take a class (likely a private one to begin with).
