Mars Opposite Sun Transit

Mars Opposite SunMars opposite Sun transit presents a challenge you must overcome to achieve a specific goal or be yourself. The energy of Mars has been building up inside, and you need to act to make something happen. Unfortunately, this energy is not balanced; it is hard to contain or express safely.

Anger and frustration are likely as other people stand in your way or directly oppose your will. It is difficult to achieve what you want fully, but you can win if your objectives are noble and not threatening to other people. Otherwise, the opposition you receive will make compromise necessary.

You must choose your battles carefully with the Mars opposite Sun transit; perhaps a tactical retreat is better in the long run. All types of relationships can be strained at the moment, but especially in close love partnerships. Again, compromise and subduing of your ego may be needed to keep this peace. Sex and other physical activity now can relieve the tension, but over-exertion or risk-taking should be avoided.

  1. As I wrote, Jamie… It will be like a test for me regarding Mars. Let´s see if I might master it! :s

    I really hope that that horrifying Saturn lessons were clear to me. We arians -no matter the noble causes- can be sooo direct and bossy!

    I truley regret all this metal, chinese would say.


    • well, hopefully this transit coming up I will be able to handle, cant think what it will be at the moment, but was challenged by the traffic today with my eyes, just over troubles !! just on the Saturn opposition Saturn as well….wish me luck, will post what happens…!!!!!

      take care…xx

  2. My Mars opposite Sun transit will be a lollapalooza. Mars retrogrades 6/19/16 thru early July. I’m a triple “A ” personality and my wife is at age 70 I’m working heavy construction with a bunch of stubborn knuckleheads.

  3. Keep in mind that any retrograde planet motion appears slowed ..more than a few days before going retrograde and days after going direct. Mercury retrograde for instance can be experienced a week or so before going retrograde and a week after going direct.

    • I found in this link that Mars stations for 3-4 days while Mercury stations for just one day. In the software I use there is a choice of using days in time or minutes in orb to calculate stationary periods.

  4. in the thick of it. Goes direct exact oppose my taurus sun degree 12th hse saturday? My energy is drastic extremes sixth house. Year since mom died. I m renewing wardrobe. There are times I cant hardly move. One man came up to me and said “what have you to be so proud of ” and his girl friend says ” health?” while I just feel removed. whaaa. Some healing inner from young men but hits to my gut ugh. 72. Something seems to be bringing things to an end or a break. Like I dont want to continue – cant.
    its weird. yes what have I got to be so proud of and suddenly your back sitting on the edge of the wharf with your feet dangling in the water just simple.
    Really keeping things up – no extra energy with me.

  5. I am also in the thick of it. Mars opposite my Gemini sun at 8 degrees. I am irritable with my husband and everything he says, I take as a negative or a problem. His tone is abrupt with me and I really cannot stand being around him right now. Strong will co- workers make me so mad but I have been trying to keep the peace and I joined the gym last week to try and transcend the energy. It’s challenging though, I must say! Ready for the energy to pass.

  6. I m getting inti this transit right now…Gemini sun 16.25 plus Gemini Jupiter in conjuct … I think I decided to move… I desperately want peace of mind. Is that to much? guess that saturn being in a trine with the transiting mars holded me back for a few days but now this trine dies out so it s time to move…

    • Saturn is only 10.06 Sagittarius now so will not really affect the Mars transit. I would look at the exact Mars opposition and see what other minor aspects are happening to gain more information.

  7. My natal mars I meant to say…leo was a trine .. _(natal Neptune also in conjuct with transiting mars)

  8. So I’m researching some upcoming transits, one of which is transiting mars opposite my sun. At the same time (day in fact) I will have transiting Pluto opposite Mars and lovely Pluto will be joined by the transiting Sun and Moon with transiting Saturn also wanting to add a bit of flavor. I think I’m just going to make out a will and sit at home with all the lights turned off. I will have some positive transits going on but am afraid they will be too weak to do much good. I know if I make it through I’ll be stronger for it but I’ve been feeling the Pluto opposite Mars for a bit now and I definitely have a problem controling my temper.

    • Hi Carmen,, that is a lot of energy all at once but I would look to it as a good opportunity to transform how you express your Mars energy. You should definitely keep active because if you try to hid this intense energy will only bottle up inside and try to escape in a way you have no control over. I would be looking for some physical but safe form of activity

  9. Agreed. I think my wish to hide is more about limiting my contact or communication with others, you see my natal Mercury is square my natal Mars. I know that is where my “biggest” opportunities for growth are, (heavy sigh). I know because it has gotten me into lots of trouble throughout life already. LOL! I am focusing on the positive and flowing aspects and such that will also be going on at the same time as well as the positive side of the oppositions. I’m going to have to learn how to edit or subdue my tongue/ego because Pluto isn’t going anywhere in a hurry and well, neither am I.

  10. This transit usually happens once every 2 years. Unfortunately every time that happened to me it is always ”pivotal”. In 2015 at the exact opposition I said I will ”play it cool” and will not leave the house. I was actually happy that I was coming down with a flu anyway so I called my boss to call it sick. He got so unbelievably upset that he fired me because he suddenly remembered a few sarcastic comments I made another day! He was shouting on the phone and was very angry. We are talking about an underpaid job were I was giving my 200% of energy and devotion. Thing is, career-wise my life went uphill after that, got so much better jobs. So at the end of every hard transit there is always light. I wish I could avoid confrontation though as I am a Pisces and really cannot stand shouting and all that. Any suggestions how to keep cool while on the transit? *hint – my Sun is in Pisces and my boss in 2015 was a Virgo

    • I think you handled it the right way. Let the other person (planet or external influence) get crazy and just be a rock. Then better things are coming for you because you got beyond this earthly realm.
