(Natal) Mars square Pluto

The Battleground of Will

If the transit could speak:

"I am the struggle between assertion and domination; between courage and destruction."


Mars square Pluto is a powerful and intense aspect that creates an atmosphere of force and compulsion within your psyche. This aspect between Mars, representing action, aggression, and desire, and Pluto, representing transformation, power, and deep-seated issues, can manifest as a propensity towards asserting oneself in a powerful and sometimes aggressive manner. It often indicates a personality that experiences intense desires and emotions, especially anger, which can suddenly erupt. There is an ongoing internal battle between the need to assert personal power and the simultaneous draw towards transformative and sometimes destructive experiences.
