Sun conjunct Mars Natal

People born during the Sun conjunct Mars transit are more passionate about discovering who they are and their purpose in life. No matter the situation, they’ll always be sincere and not pretend. They have this desire to be number one, not to mention they can act very fast in a crisis.

Loving to chase their other half, they don’t have enough patience to woo someone for a very long time though. They’re just good at initiating things because Mars is a wild and cold planet that’s sometimes making them too bold, even vulgar.

Those having the Sun conjunct Mars transit in their birth chart are straightforward and honest. The Sun gives them a lot of creative energy, whereas Mars is making them more ambitious.

These people are not known to accept rejection, but at least the way they’re asserting themselves is truly inspiring. It’s like they always know where they’re standing and what to say to convince others of their views.

This means they possess a masculine energy and a lot of vitality, power, and vigor. If they want to exploit their force, they should express themselves openly, but pay attention to not become self-centered or too preoccupied with their ambitions and needs.

Many of the natives born during the Sun conjunct Mars aspect are aggressive, competitive and fast to react when feeling threatened. Every occasion to make their talents and force known is sure to be used by them wisely because they want to prove the world that they’re really strong and capable of achieving great things.

However, being very confident and seeing themselves as the best leaders in the world, they may start acting superior and annoy many of their friends.

These natives know what hard work means and are enterprising, combative, hurried to get things done or dramatic, but they’re still great leaders, even if domineering.

Their will and strength will always get them what they want in life, but their memory and temper are a little bit short.

Not scared of anything and bold, they’re prone to accidents if the Sun conjunct Mars aspect in their birth chart is afflicted by Uranus. They may hurt themselves because they’re too impulsive and rushed.

When it comes to their success, this will be heightened in matters of the 1st, 5th and 8th Houses, also the ones of the previously mentioned conjunction. If active and energetic, the energies of these Houses will give them more activity in the aspects of life they’re ruling over.

Having a strong physique, natives having the Sun conjunct Mars in their birth chart will rapidly recuperate from any illness, but they’ll cut and burn themselves more often than others.

Not too tactful or diplomatic, those of them born under a feminine Sun sign will be able to temper the aggressiveness of Mars.

However, if the conjunction aspect of this planet with the Sun is afflicted, they may have a too short temper and an overwhelming will. Those of them in a masculine sign will always want to argue.

Regardless of other aspects in their natal chart, all of them need to control their anger and the harsh words they’re using when disagreeing with their loved ones.

They can’t stand being limited and restricted, also routines and repetitive behaviors because they simply love the excitement brought on by dangerous activities and physically-challenging sports.

Enthusiastic, spontaneous, but sometimes too impulsive, they simply love having their own space and making sudden decisions as this is giving them the energy and freshness they so much require.

Many of them may want to share their enthusiasm with others, which means they’ll struggle all of their life to help those stuck in a rut make a change.

There will be individuals who won’t appreciate their efforts, while some may find them offensive when they’d insist on challenging every value or belief.

These people will see every word and action as a personal offense and not a different point of view.

While creative and intelligent, people born during the Sun conjunct transit may not know how to focus their abilities to get something constructive done and can waste their energy on unimportant activities.

This is usually happening because they’re impulsive and never interested in planning for the future, which is indicating they should temper their nerves and make decisions after thinking twice.

Furthermore, they should listen to what others have to say because it’s very likely they don’t know what’s best all the time.

Focused on taking action, they can release their energy by addressing matters of their conjunction House, also the ones of Mars and Saturn in their natal chart. Studying what’s here, they can identify what opportunities to take advantage of and how to use their talents or to know themselves better.

Those unaware of the strong energies it brings about can end up getting hurt as a result of accidents and aggressive behaviors, not to mention how this transit is known for violent behaviors. Many will become more irritable, angry and impatient during it.

The Sun conjunct Mars transit is known for making people more creative, so it’s very good for artists of any kind.

Sportspeople are favored as well because they have more physical energy than usual. Others may enjoy a higher libido, so if they’re trying for a baby, they should take advantage of this astral placement as much as possible.

More than this, it’s a good transit for experimenting in bed and coming up with new ideas. Since everyone is easy to provoke and more nervous, tense circumstances should be avoided as much as possible.

Instead, individuals should go to the gym and release all of their anger. Those of them who are trying to lose weight may notice their efforts are no longer in vain and their exercises are truly working.

Because it’s almost impossible to avoid making mistakes during the Sun conjunct Mars transit, many will get injured as a result of being too distracted, others will not have enough stamina to do anything.

This time is perfect for taking on new challenges, but many should pay attention to not become egotistical when collaborating with others, also to be less straightforward.

It would be a better idea for them to just work alone, but if not possible, being tempered should do the trick. When it comes to relationships, people will be more aware of how others are seeing them, but like they’re under attack all the time, which will make them more aggressive.

For this reason, they should not get involved in conflicts and avoid contradicting their loved ones.

However, those whose family and friends are being threatened will find all of their strength to protect these people, from a physical point of view as well. They’ll act without thinking, which can be beneficial for them if they’re trying to protect someone.

Egos are heightened during the Sun conjunct Mars transit, so many may jump to defend themselves and to go on with their plans.

Possessing more energy than usual, natives of all signs will want to perform in sports and take risks, but they need to be extra careful because they can easily get hurt.
