Mars Sextile Pluto

For sheer raw energy, Mars / Pluto combinations are the most powerful Astrology offers. When they show up, they don't mess around. It's time to get stuff done, especially if you've been "putting off the inevitable." The future is bearing down hard & it's time to get it together so you can be ready for whatever comes next. Mars / Pluto brings you face to face with The New Normal & the adjustments it requires.

The circular nature of this aspect can really change the conditions you're traveling through & living with. Pluto's space -- both permanently in your horoscope & "just in passing" ... where the transits form -- is the site of fundamental transition. His area is host to the awesome process of destruction & rebuilding ... & the fact it will be more than a decade before he's finished gives some idea of the scale of change underway.

Mars in Astrology: Basic Stuff | Quick Notes on Mars In Astrology

When Mars forms aspects with Pluto, you do things or respond to demands that further this renovation. Sextiles bring new ideas / new information for you to act on. You don't get to just sit on your hands (any more). The good news is ... you don't want to. You're out to make some essential shift ... make a move / launch a venture / make something happen.

If you mess around & fail to answer the summons, Life will hand you some reasons to be motivated. It may be exciting. It may just be stressful. But you'll be clear & focused on some project that means progress ... & improvement. Pluto may be ruthless in his methods, but his results are worth the grief. Mars provides the action, energy, & some level of control, so choices matter now.

Change is here. No dawdling. Act now. Get moving. Srsly.

* 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.

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. There is even some debate about whether it qualifies as a bona fide planet.

* 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. People fuss about Saturn ... with its limitations, delays, disappointments, denials, ....

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.

Pluto in Astrology
From the Blogs, Ezines
and Elsewhere

From EDA: Pluto ---> Everyday Astrology ---> Pluto ---> Pluto experiences are undeniably intense. They are, by definition, life-changing. In mythology, Pluto -- known as Hades to the Greeks, fearsome ruler of the underworld & afterlife, burst out of the ground one day, captured Demeter's daughter, Persephone, who was picking flowers in a field, minding her own business, absconded with her into the underworld & held her captive for a while. Modern encounters with this fierce archetype of death & resurrection are equally daunting, often equally unwilling & drawn out.
