The harmony between self-expression and impulse shows up in very talented actors, musicians and artists but any area of life would benefit from high energy. Even though there is a lot of creative energy and enthusiasm, this aspect does not give the aggressiveness and overt competitiveness of other Sun Mars aspects.

Planetary nature of Mars-Sun: Heroic, courageous, defiant, intrepid leader, warlike, danger to the eyes, violent death.

Sun Trine Mars Celebrities
Kurt Cobain (2 seconds orb) was surely gifted with creative talent. He had so much energy as shown by the exactness of this aspect that he was naturally hyperactive, and as a child was medicated for ADHD. Unfortunately this early drugging set up the spiral to self-destruction from heroin and alcohol in later life. Kurt still managed to be hugely successful from his raw and gritty (Mars) yet harmonious (trine) style of music. His energy did not find release through sports because his father pushed him into it and he rebelled against him.
