Mars Opposing Pluto

Mars opposing Pluto describes a conflicted, toxic, dangerous, even violent environment. Both Mars & Pluto are intense, active energies that don't deal well with interference when they set out to accomplish some goal. Mars afflicted becomes impatient, uncooperative, impulsive, vicious, volatile & violent. Pluto afflicted becomes willful, implacable, explosive, ruthless, merciless & annihilating.

When these two face off against each other, you seriously do not want to stick around to see what happens next. Mars afflicted shows incendiary rage, combustible methods, extreme behavior & inflammatory reactions. Even normal Pluto behavior is intransigent in its determination to get its own way by any means necessary. Afflicted or opposed, it becomes the literal definition of "going nuclear."

Mars Opposing Pluto

Mars opposing Pluto is one of the most explosive, perilous and frightening aspects in Astrology. Maybe that's why I've put off writing about it. It truly is unpleasant -- and while not talking about it may like burying your head in the sand, at least I'm not giving it any more energy. It has plenty already thankyouverymuch.

Generically, this is about the constructive use of power and force. Mars is competitive and ambitious; Pluto is implacable and transformative. They both embody a warrior spirit and the concerted no-holds-barred drive to win -- whatever they are chasing ... and achieve their aims by any means necessary. When they square off against each other, the possibilities are disturbing and dangerous.

Mars in Astrology

Mars in General * -- Your Inner Self of Action, Initiative and Self-Assertion ---> Red is a Mars color! ---> Symbol of energy and ambition ---> In Astrology, Mars represents physical energy, your ability to take action and your instincts for self-assertion and aggression. Mars supports your independence and your ability to set goals and achieve them. It is associated with overt sexual energy and competition in general. The Inner Self fueled by Mars energy knows how to take care of itself, how to get what it wants and when situations call for force and willpower. Mars energy wants you to feel safe, capable, confident and strong.

* What Does Mars Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Red is Mars' color!! ---> The symbol of force and power ---> Mars, fiery red, the favorite prop of science fiction legend, named for the intense, passionate mythological god of war, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's capacity to take action, show independence and self-assertion, pursue goals and ambitions, use physical and sexual energy, and exert his force and willpower in situations of competition and conflict. As the metaphor for the personal use of force and power, it shows how you make your presence known and how you "take care of Number One" ....

My Notes About Mars in Astrology * ---> Mars, the fifth element in your horoscope ---> * After Venus, Mars is the next closest planet to Earth. It is located between Earth and Jupiter. It is the fourth planet from the Sun. * Mars takes about 2 years to circle through the Zodiac. It stays in each sign about 6 weeks, but it retrogrades once every two years. That retrograde cycle can keep it in a single sign for up to six months -- or, of course, it can divide its retrograde path between two different signs. * Starting with Mars, the planets can be in any sign of the Zodiac.

More about Mars

* The Drumbeat of Mars -- Marching to His Own Militant Music ---> Fire energy ---> The glyph for Mars in Astrology is the well-known symbol for male in biology. Even in this stylized representation, it is phallic, sexual and blatant in what it depicts ... and anyone who has ever seen one of the real thing it signifies recognizes it at once. Mars, and the energy associated with it, is assertive, aroused, fired-up, on the prowl and ready for action! No wonder it has such a formidable (and sometimes forbidding) reputation among the more timid and peace-loving souls of the Zodiac. Mars' Prime Directive is to advance, to conquer ....

* Mars: Ruler of Aries -- Symbol of Your Active, Assertive, Energetic Self ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color! ---> Mars shows passion, initiative and self-assertion. ---> Mars, fiery red, the favorite prop of science fiction legend, named for the intense, passionate mythological god of war, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's capacity to take action, show independence and self-assertion, pursue goals and ambitions, use physical and sexual energy, and exert his force and willpower in situations of competition and conflict. As the metaphor for the personal use of force and power, it shows how you make your presence known ....

* The Mars / Aries Person -- Aries Signatures in a Horoscope ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color. ---> Combinations of Mars / Aries energy ---> Mars / Aries energy can be seen in a number of different patterns or placements in a person's Natal Chart. All the following combinations give the Mars / Aries energy of spunky independence and self-assertive ambition to anyone who owns them, but some are not obvious to the non-astrologer.

Still More about Mars in Astrology

* Mars Retrograde -- Doing Work Over Again ---> Red is a Mars color. ---> Mars Retrograde ---> Mars goes retrograde roughly once every two years and stays that way for about two and a half months each time. Mars retrograde marks a time when all the things ruled by or involved with what Mars represents in Astrology are up for review, revision -- and usually some major course correction.

About Mars
From the Blogs and Ezines

From EDA: Mars -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology April 2, 2021 Mars ---> Each planet in your horoscope represents a particular cluster of energy, a set of interests & potentials with an agenda to fulfill. It contains a set of attitudes & traits it will use to naturally express itself. And it is focused by its placement in your horoscope into a specific area of life. It becomes part of your inner design from the time you arrive. It fits very nicely into the concept of an Inner Self. There are ten of them. Mars represents your Inner Self of Action.

From EDA: Mars Retrograde -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology October 29, 2020 Mars Rx ---> It's not news. Mars is Retrograde until November 13. It's been in its own shadow since July 25, and will not emerge until January 2. Maybe that bodes well (a little bit) for 2021 being a better year than 2020. It would almost have to be, but we've learned these are times with no guarantees. Mars retrogrades about every 2 years -- well, every 26 months actually. It stays retrograde for about 2 -- 2 1/2 months ... between 60 and 80 days. It will cover somewhere between 10 and 20 degrees in his backward trek. Only Venus ....

From BEE: Mars in Astrology -- From the Blogs, Ezines & Elsewhere -- Selection 1 ---> Mars in Astrology. Entries from Everyday Astrology Selection 1 ---> Everyday Astrology December 24, 2020 Mars ---> There's something so unfettered, pure & honest about Mars energy. It is passionate, direct, candid & unapologetic about its desires & motives ... and usually its methods. Yes, those can be corrupted, but that's almost always due to the characteristics of the sign involved (like Scorpio) rather than by pristine Mars energy itself. Still nothing exists in a vacuum & Mars energy always is what it is.

Pluto in Astrology

* Pluto: Lord of Transition -- The Power to Rock Your World ---> The planet Pluto, so the news is told, was discovered by accident ... in a world where "accidents" are more mythical than the Lord of the Underworld himself. Twenty-two year old astronomer Clyde Tombaugh was actually on a wild goose chase when it happened, unaware, of course, that his whole mission was based on a mistake -- or that he was about to step into history.

* Pluto: Ruler of Scorpio ---> Pluto -- God of the Underworld ---> Pluto, with its bizarre, irregular orbit, is the last of the discovered planets in this Solar System which the basic metaphorical language of astrology contains. Occasionally it is the outermost of the known planets, although during part of its journey around the Sun it moves inside the orbit of Neptune.

* Pluto -- The Symbol of Irresistible Change ---> When things change ... drastically ---> Pluto. If the idea of this planet and all its metaphorical meanings, all the things it symbolizes out in the real world, don't cause the hair to ripple on the back of your neck and an inward shudder to pass through the core of your body like a sudden gust of frigid wind, well, then you don't know it like I do.

More on Pluto

Pluto Retrograde -- Rebuilding in the Wake of Revolution ---> Pluto -- death and resurrection ---> Pluto. If you know anything at all about the symbolism of this strange, erratic, controversial planet (which some scientists don't consider a planet at all, and other scientists consider part of a double planet set along with its own Moon, Charon, with whom it shares an atmosphere), you know it represents situations and experiences that deserve more than passing respect.

* Pluto in Capricorn -- The Lord of Destruction and Rebirth -- in the sign of Government and Corporate Industry ---> With Pluto in Capricorn, you are working with an energy that is ---> Fueled by a profound desire to make sweeping changes and improvements -- now tackling long-term projects that involve reworking your life's fundamental structures ---> Determined to demolish what is exhausted, inappropriate, useless, obsolete or in disrepair in life areas where you already feel constantly vulnerable and insecure

From the Blogs, Ezines
and Elsewhere

From EDA: Pluto ---> Everyday Astrology February 1, 2020 Pluto ---> Pluto is not easy for me to write about. I guess that's why I've put it off so long. On paper, he sounds powerful and intriguing. As the ruler of certain secrets

From EDA: Pluto Direct -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology October 5, 2019 Pluto Direct ---> Pluto has turned direct after starting its annual backward trek in late April -- so let's talk about that. Retrograde Pluto marks a time of reflection and inner investigation about issues of control and power -- how you use them and how they are used against you. This is a constant theme since humans are fundamentally social creatures. Questions of who gets to do what to whom permeate almost every transaction.
