Sun sextile Mars

SunsextileMars
Sun sextile Mars, Sun trine Mars
People born with flowing aspects between the Sun and Mars are generally enterprising. They have powerful stores of energy that they can draw upon when needed. These people respond to problems or challenges with a spirited and enthusiastic confidence that is admirable. They are naturally competitive, and this trait is generally well-received by others simply because it is unforced, unaffected, and sincere. These people truly believe in fair play, and they seem to be in love with life. When they are expressing competitiveness and courage, it's easy to smile and accept these traits as positive ones rather than being rubbed the wrong way. These people generally have good physical vitality.

It is interesting to note that these people are not naturally combative. Many enjoy sports or games that are competitive, but not violent. Breaking the rules of a competitive game is particularly upsetting to those with Sun in easy aspect to Mars. This is largely due to the fact that the will (Sun) is connected to the desire nature (Mars) in a pleasing manner, so that the natives are more able than most to control their desires, aggressions, and instincts. They know how to be fair, and they expect others to be fair. As such, sneaky behaviors, uncontrolled impulses, violence, and rage are offensive to them. They know how to direct and control their own impulses and desire natures, and they fully expect others to be able to do so!

The main difference between the sextile and trine of the Sun and Mars: The trine is a more natural energy. Those with Sun trine Mars naturally and without thought are courageous and enterprising. Those with Sun sextile Mars have the opportunity to draw upon their courageous and enterprising spirit, but effort is required to pull these energies out of themselves and to apply these energies in their lives. With the trine, the characteristics of Sun-Mars come so naturally that the natives may not even realize just how much endurance, confidence, and enthusiasm they possess. Because the sextile requires some effort and thought, those with Sun sextile Mars often have many creative tools at their disposal, and they can be effective strategists and leaders.

Some Famous People with Sun sextile or trine Mars: Angelina Jolie, Neil Armstrong (the first man to step on the Moon), George Lucas, Warren Beatty, Donald Trump.

General discussion of Sun-Mars aspects.

Alternate interpretations:

Sun sextile Mars: Energetic, enthusiastic, (and at times) very combative, you have a way of getting to your goal. You enjoy the contest of others trying to stop you. Your creative energies flow very strong when you are opposed. -- Interpretation from our In-Depth Profile report.

Sun sextile Mars: For most children with this harmonious Sun/Mars aspect, will and desire work hand in hand. It's probably easy for your child to work with those in authority: parents, teachers, elders. She enjoys working with others and would make a good manager. An interest (and ability) in athletics, exercise (working with the physical body), the outdoors and such, should be lifelong. Another form this could take is training or coaching others. Your child could have a natural ability to express herself and to handle emotions. She may also like to perform. A career in one of the entertainment industries is a possibility. This position also favors police work. Because Mom and Dad supported her as a child, your child is confident of success as an adult.  -- Interpretation from the Child Star report (Girl).

Sun sextile Mars: You have abundant physical vitality and little hesitancy in using it. You are always on the move. Your aims and purposes, being direct and clear and animated by a good physical equipment, carry you to success. You are forceful, hard-hitting, aggressive, knowing where you stand and where you are going. You wear out less energetic souls by the speed and continuous level of your activities, for you are seemingly tireless and can stand shoulder to shoulder with the strongest when it comes to matters of endurance. Since a good deal of the success of this world in material matters depends on physical vitality, you have an edge on competitors. You are an excellent leader not so much of thought as of action (unless Mercury is powerful) and frequently choose the army or navy as your field of activity, where you speedily rise to authority; or business, where you won't long stay in a subordinate position. You overwhelm people, and they naturally give way to you. If you also have Moon square or opposite Saturn, or Mercury conjunct Venus, or Mercury conjunct, square, or opposition Saturn, or Mercury conjunct Uranus, or Mercury conjunct Neptune: This occurs with strong intellectual and creative bents. You are a leader of thought and a powerful personality. -- Interpretation from the Heaven Knows What report.

Sun sextile Mars: One of your strengths is your high level of physical vitality and energy. You are an ACTION person, a doer, a go-getter, and you can pack more activity into a day than most people do in a week. You enjoy fighting the good fight, taking on challenges with relish, and you are inherently quite competitive but not in a way that provokes anger or fierce opposition from others. Because in the past you have succeeded in achieving your goals, you now have an inner expectation of success and of being a winner, a natural self-confidence that you draw on without even thinking about it. You have developed many positive "masculine" qualities, such as courage, will power and the ability to take initiative. You tend to be a leader without having to struggle or coerce others into accepting your authority. Occasionally, however, you may overpower other people without realizing it, since they may not have the energy resources that you do. -- Interpretation from the Karmic Insight report.
