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:

An opposition occurs when planets are about 180 degrees apart, directly across from each other on the zodiac wheel. This aspect can create a pull between opposing forces or interests, requiring a balance or integration of these energies. Oppositions often highlight areas where we need to understand and manage opposing viewpoints or conflicting needs. Planets in opposition are sometimes projected onto other people or there is a tension between people related to two planets (representing their inner qualities).


The Sun opposite Mars transit embodies a period of heightened tensions and opposing forces. It's as if the universe sets up a celestial tug-of-war between the core of your being (Sun) and your drive and assertiveness (Mars). You might feel more confrontational or challenged by others, leading to potential conflicts or power struggles. This transit pushes you to assert your individuality and confront issues that require your attention. The energy is robust and dynamic, urging you to take decisive action but also to maintain balance and not act impulsively. It's a crucial time to manage aggression and channel this intense energy constructively.

what to do

  • Engage in physical activities to healthily channel excess energy.

  • Stand your ground in conflicts, but aim for resolution rather than domination.

  • Use this period for competitive activities where you can strive to win.

  • Reflect on your desires and actions to ensure they align with your true self.

  • Take proactive steps in situations you've been avoiding due to confrontation fears.

what to avoid

  • Avoid unnecessary conflicts and engaging in aggressive behaviors.

  • Steer clear of hasty decisions made in anger or frustration.

  • Be cautious not to override others' opinions or feelings.

  • Resist the urge to react defensively to criticism or opposition.

  • Avoid risky activities that could lead to accidents due to high impulsivity.

For the Sun opposite Mars transit, typical psychological issues revolve around conflicts, assertiveness, and anger management. Here are some key challenges you might face:

  • Aggression and Impulsivity: Struggling to control quick tempers and aggressive impulses.

  • Conflict Management: Difficulties in handling conflicts constructively, possibly escalating situations unnecessarily.

  • Frustration Tolerance: Low patience and high frustration, especially when actions meet resistance or plans face obstacles.


To navigate these challenges, consider the following step-by-step psychological guidance:

  5. Reflect on Past Conflicts: Analyze previous instances where you reacted impulsively. Consider what you could have done differently and how you can apply those lessons in future situations.

  6. Seek Feedback: Ask for feedback from trusted friends or colleagues about how you handle conflicts and anger. This can provide insights into areas you may not recognize yourself.

  7. Cognitive Restructuring: Work on changing the thought patterns that lead to aggressive responses. Challenge and reframe irrational beliefs that underpin aggressive behavior.

  8. Professional Help: If managing aggression or conflict remains a challenge, consider seeking help from a psychotherapist who can offer personalized strategies and support.
