Mars Conjunct Pluto

mars conjunction pluto

There is something very tragic about Mars conjunct Pluto. It doesn’t mean that all these people are doomed, rather that they have a melodramatic aura about them. Some will channel the pain and passion into their creations. In the case of the musicians here, it makes for sincere, heart-felt music and a searing emotional delivery of their songs. This aspect is rare amongst the famous, so I would think it takes quite an exceptional person to use this explosive conjunction in such a way that it does not self-destruct.

Mars conjunct Pluto seems to be the proverbial phoenix from the flames. If they learn to channel this wild energy well, then they can survive anything. This combination is also a dare-devil. It is fearless to the point it may indeed have some kind of a death wish. They enjoy the adrenalin rush of dangerous sports. Sexually, this is a red-hot as you can get, they like the taboo and the thrill of chasing the forbidden fruit. The harder-to-get the lover plays the better, for Mars conjunct Pluto likes a challenge.

Mars Conjunct Pluto Natives

Patsy Cline (12’) died aged just 30 at the height of her fame as a Country music singer. She had an intense, emotionally rich contralto voice. Her most famous song “Crazy’ is one of those tragic Karaoke songs so beloved of the broken hearted. Patsy was tough and considered “one of the boys”, drinking beer with her male co-stars and telling dirty jokes. She experienced two car crashes, the second one near fatal. Patsy brought sexy into country music, swapping traditional cow-girl outfits for slinky red cocktail dresses with spike heels and ruby red lipstick. Patsy had a sense that death was close, a year before her fatal plane crash she had begun giving away items to her friends and telling them to look after her children if anything should happen to her. A week before her death she told Ray Walker “Honey, I’ve had two bad ones (accidents). The third one will either be a charm or it’ll kill me.”

  1. I’ve got Mars conjunct Pluto, so has my son and so did my Grandad. I think it’s an intense and powerful energy and there may be something tragic about it (ish) but I don’t agree with the hypersexual connotations that are always linked to this aspect because in my experience that’s far from being the case! In fact in my family I’d say sexual energy was more repressed than anything else, but that might be out of fear for it getting out of control. I think there may be something about one’s natural and powerful energies being suppressed with this aspect – creative energies, and what you’re able to manifest in the world. That has definitely been a theme in my family running back through generations.

    • It depends what house its in, the aspects to it and whether its intercepted. If this conjunction is in the 12th or intercepted it usually means sexual shaming and repression.

  2. Mars Pluto conjunct is primal energy. It can be intensely driven and creative and of course always depends on other factors in the horoscope. There are no points on a circle which are not connected – so nothing works on its own. I have Mars Pluto conjunct my Sun and Venus in the 12th. I am not sexually repressed at all but neither am I a nympho! You have to remember that everyone is at different stages of their soul evolution so there are a variety of ways this conjunction can express. One of the ways I experience it is that I can be overwhelmed by my own energy at times. I can be hyper energetic or dying of fatigue – Mars and Pluto taking turns to cancel each other out. In times of crisis I can pull inexhaustible energy from deep reserves.

    • Yes the trouble with cookbook astrology is zeroing on one aspect brings it out of the whole, and it has an unnatural emphasis. In the 12th I reckon it would be toned down or spiritualised. At the same time I think it is still good to pick out the ingredients of a chart and really get to their essence. Then you have to apply it to the whole. Someone who has this conjunct their AC or MC would be more like how I have described it. Oh and also we have to consider decan and star too!
