mars-conjunct-plutoThere 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.

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. Many famous people in the entertainment world have this conjunction- Cher, Bruce Springsteen, Laura Nyro and Bette Midler to name a few. I think it is more common among the famous than you have stated.

    • Maybe these folk have it wider than 2º 30. I use a small orb for my samples.

  2. You’re right. The celebrities I mentioned above do have wider orbs. How about including Ringo Starr? He fits your criteria. I guess I’m defensive about this aspect because I have it with less than 2 degree orb in Leo in my 5th house lol

  3. I have mars at 23’28 Leo and Pluto at 23’31 Leo, in the 12th house no less. I’ve found that I need to proactively channel that energy, because it will go off on its own if left to chance!

  4. ok a living walking example here. MArs Uranus and Pluto conjunct within 4 degrees and moon is conjunct mars 5 degrees. so 4 planets are conjunct within 8 degrees which is wide but all this opposes Saturn . especially the Mars Uranus Pluto conjunction. yes, Marina trust me when you said there is something melodramatic with them is very true. Even if I don’t want to get involved in anything just sit at home, locked in and relax with my family, rest assured that sooner or later something UNEXPECTED will happen which will stir some s**t.Name it fate. I know a lot of people don’t believe in it, don’t take my word for it but it sure does exist, I know it from first person experience. I don’t want to boast about it because mainly it is unfortunately most of the time something negative, comes with pain or some kind of learning lesson. The irony is that from the outside a lot of people wouldn’t know what kind of sh**tty pain I am going through, except my family where I usually explode with anger about it. I don’t want to do it but the pressure sometimes so unbearable that if i don’t let it out somehow it feels I will explode. Now this might be true to the fact as well that all this mars/Uranus/Pluto trines Lilith. Oh, the joy of it. Yes, I had my few share of my heartaches you can bet on that one as well. So, again when you said that it takes a strong character to bear it , you were right about that. I am starting to control my mood a bit better (Saturn?) as I age and I try not to make everything into a drama. (at least not as much when I was younger!) But still a lot of thing can cause pain, and I am not a weakling since my sun sign is Aries. When I talk about pain it is not physical but emotional. And it does hurt deep inside. But of course having a lot of planets in the 12H doesn’t help either. I mightn’t be too persistent in a lot of thing but I sure know that something is working through the 12 house which we have little control over. We can do only 1 thing. Be strong and ride the waves! And try to hold onto something which is a fixed sign. Which is so ironic in my case since All of my planets are mutable except 1 in Scorpio. And that is Neptune! LOL! Well, that is a short opinion and first hand advice for and about people in Mars/Pluto! Merry Christmas!

  5. I have Mars, Uranus, Pluto conjunct all within 1 or 2 degrees opposed by Saturn. Squaring by sign only my Sun and Venus.
    I have had hellish times and a lot of unexpected twists and turns. A big fight and stand involving mainly men in my life (Sun square Mars/Pluto) authority figures too. I tend to think of myself as an easygoing, thoughtful, gentle soul yet shzzzz! happens. A good astrologer friend of mine told me ‘use the powerhouse, it is yours and no one elses. If not it will find you and other people use it against you. So to all you out there with Mars, Uranus and Pluto conjunctions remember it is yours and no one elses, use it, don’t project it so that others can take it.I am a stronger person now (and laws are being changed in society – Uranus,Mars,Pluto – not sure if in my 10th/11th/or 12th still puzzled over this as all 3 houses make sense).
