Sun conjunct Mars

Sun Conjunct Mars
It's difficult to be indifferent towards people with Sun conjunct Mars in their natal charts. They have presence. There is a courageous air about them, and they exude confidence even if they don't own it! If they're not highly active and energetic people, they are most certainly confrontational. They get right to the point, go right for the jugular, and they make things happen. You might call them impatient, but not in a nervous sense of the word--they simply can't wait around for something to happen. They want something, and they want it now.

These people have a competitive spirit. They like to win. Channeled into sports and games, they make formidable opponents, although sports that require strategy may not be their forte, simply because they are apt to apply force to get to their goals. If not channeled this way, they make formidable business opponents. Those without a "channel", however, run the risk of being bullies--looking for a fight, getting all fired up and hot under the collar, and stirring up trouble at every turn. Properly channeled, however, these people are gutsy, not afraid of conflict, and really quite daring. If you peel away the layers, however, you might find a rather insecure person who does everything in their power to prove themselves.

Because we are combining two masculine planets, people with this aspect might be considered masculine in expression, regardless of their gender. In love, they like to be the ones who do the pursuing. They love the thrill of the chase, but they might tire easily once they have "conquered". If you don't really like them, no problem. They take that as a dare.

Some Famous People with Sun conjunct Mars: Gloria Steinem (in Aries), Billy Bob Thornton (in Leo), Peter Jennings, Matt Dillon, Ben Affleck, Cameron Diaz, Ed Asner (Sun conjunct Mercury and Mars in Scorpio), Salvador Dali.


General discussion of Sun-Mars aspects.

Alternate interpretations:

Sun conjunct Mars: You need an outlet for the dynamic energy that fills you. Your drive is strong; your desire nature red hot. Difficulties come when you try to be sedentary or when you try to do everything everyone else's way. You need self-expression. You are a pioneer. You need to be able to "call your own shots" in some area of your life. When you feel angry, develop harmless physical movements to reduce stress. Next, get in the habit of examining your own drives as the origin of your discomfort. -- Interpretation from our In-Depth Profile report.

Sun conjunction Mars: You are competitive and tend to enjoy challenges and opposition. You are able to compete or fight in situations that require great physical effort on your part. Your temperament is suitable for occupations such as sports, military service or anything in which hazard and danger are commonplace.-- Interpretation from the Vocational Guidance report.

Sun conjunct Mars: You have unusual good health and a surplus of energy that resists regimenting or sublimating. You must find personal and positive expression to accomplish your aims without becoming egoistic and argumentative. Learn to curb your disposition to override others in a cavalier manner. You may accomplish more on your own than you do in partnership, but are a leader, not a "loner." Those who believe in you can make a difference between chaos and the completion of your useful endeavors. -- Interpretation from the Spirit Success report.

Sun conjunction Mars: You are strong-willed and passionate, and you exude a powerful aura that may intimidate some men (or keep them in the position of "just friends"). You simply must express yourself and are not willing to "hide your light under a bushel". This aspect indicates that you have great inner strength, and usually great physical strength as well. You enjoy competition and are a formidable opponent. With your enthusiasm for your goal, you can be an effective leader. Just be sure to remain flexible enough to accept advice. With this aspect, you don't take criticism very well. Don't see it as a personal attack if someone suggests a better way of doing things. Remain open and you will encounter less resistance.

It's difficult for others to be indifferent towards you. You possess loads of presence. There is a courageous air about you, and you exude confidence even if you don't own it! If you're not highly active and energetic, you are most certainly confrontational. You get right to the point, go right for the jugular, and you make things happen. Others might call you impatient, but not in a nervous sense of the word--you simply can't wait around for something to happen. When you want something, you want it now.

Because we are combining two masculine planets, people with this aspect might be considered masculine in expression, regardless of their gender. It is not that you are lacking in femininity, however. But you do understand the male spirit better than most women, and you are not a woman who will flutter her eyelashes or act in a girly-girl manner. You have a strong sex drive and can become irritable when you have no outlet for it. You have a competitive spirit; you truly like to win. You can be gutsy, not afraid of conflict, and really quite daring. Peeling away the layers, however, and you may be a somewhat insecure person who does everything in your power to prove yourself.

In love, you prefer to be the one who does the pursuing. You love the thrill of the chase, but you might tire easily once you have "conquered". If a potential lover doesn't seem to like you, no problem. You take that as a dare. You need a partner who can handle your intense energy without becoming offended by it. -- Interpretation from our Love Styles: About Her report.

Sun conjunction Mars: The conjunction gives a tendency to fever, especially if it occurs in Aries, the sign which governs the head, but it is curious that people with that configuration seem also to be able to endure a much higher temperature than others, and come unscathed through such a siege of sickness as would ordinarily prove fatal. With that exception these aspects all produce a super-abundance of vital energy which assures their possessor of the most radiant health all through life, they strengthen the constitution and make the person able to endure the harder tasks, and give him a dauntless determination and courage to face the greatest odds. Given a plan to follow he may be trusted to overcome all physical obstacles for he has both executive and constructive ability together with an indomitable will which refuses to recognize defeat. The disposition is frank and open but blunt and often brusque; they are too intensely bent on whatever they want to do to waste time in politeness and suavity; they brush the conventionalities aside without compunction and are therefore not liked by people of too fine sensibilities; they are, however, men and women of action and the foremost factors in the world's work; but for their enterprise and energy the world would move much more slowly. Aspects to the Sun and Mars are absolutely necessary to give zest to life; even adverse aspects are better than none, for where these planets are unaspected the person is listless, vapid and he will never amount to anything no matter how good the figure may be in other respects. -- Max Heindel.

Sun conjunction Mars: A born doer, with an incredible drive to accomplish and achieve in life. Your ambitions are backed up by the will to get things done. You can be very emotional, and others might find you a bit too aggressive. You try hard and you always push on toward whatever goals you have in mind. A conservative by nature, you tend to stand up for the status quo, and, if male, are probably a "man's man." -- WinStar.
