The Sun

The Sun in astrological transits acts as a spotlight on our lives, illuminating our path, identity, and individuality. Its influence in transits is potent; it highlights areas needing growth and development or affirming our existing paths. When the Sun transits another planet in a natal chart, it activates the planet's energies, enhancing or challenging them depending on the nature of the aspect.

Mars is the planet of action, energy, and desire, driving our ambitions and assertiveness. When Mars transits, it influences our drive, our approach to conflicts, and our sexual energy. These transits can bring periods of increased aggression or motivation, prompting us to initiate projects or defend our boundaries.

type of aspect:

A conjunction occurs when two planets align at the same degree within the same zodiac sign, merging their energies. This alignment often signals new beginnings and the initiation of a new cycle. Conjunctions can amplify the planets' qualities, leading to a focused burst of energy in the areas governed by those planets.


When the Sun conjuncts Mars in transit, it heralds a period of energized enthusiasm and dynamic start-ups. This alignment infuses your spirit with a surge of vitality, urging you to take action and pursue your ambitions with newfound vigor. It's a time when your assertive qualities come to the forefront, enabling you to tackle challenges head-on. The solar qualities of identity and core essence blend with Mars' drive and combativeness, making you more willing to assert yourself and take risks. This can be an excellent time for starting new projects, especially those that require physical energy and a strong will. However, the impulsive energy can also lead to a quick temper and aggressive interactions if not managed properly.

what to do

  • Initiate new projects that require energy and enthusiasm.

  • Engage in physical activities to harness this transit's dynamic energy.

  • Stand up for your beliefs and take the lead in situations that require direction.

  • Use this period to assert your independence and autonomy.

  • Channel your energy into productive activities rather than confrontations.

what to avoid

  • Impulsive decisions without considering the consequences.

  • Overexerting yourself physically or burning out.

  • Confrontations that could lead to unnecessary conflicts.

  • Neglecting the feelings and opinions of others.

  • Rushing tasks that require patience and precision.

  1. Impulsivity: The fiery combination of Sun and Mars can increase impulsive reactions, leading to hasty decisions without full consideration of the consequences.

  2. Aggression: There may be a tendency to express anger more directly and forcefully, which can strain interpersonal relationships.

  3. Overconfidence: The boosted confidence from this transit might tip over into arrogance or overly risky behaviors.

  1. Mindfulness Practices: Engage in mindfulness exercises to stay present and aware of your actions and emotions. This can help manage impulsivity by creating a pause before reacting.

  2. Channel Aggression Positively: Redirect aggressive energy into constructive activities like sports, challenging physical tasks, or competitive environments that are structured and safe.

  3. Balance Assertiveness with Empathy: While it’s important to assert your needs and desires, balancing this with empathy towards others' feelings and perspectives can prevent conflicts.

  4. Reflection and Journaling: Use journaling to reflect on your daily experiences during this transit. It can be a tool to process emotions and decisions, helping you to consider the long-term impacts of your actions.

  5. Set Clear Goals: Define what you want to achieve during this period of increased energy. Setting clear and achievable goals can help harness the drive and determination of Mars without getting sidetracked by its more disruptive qualities.
