Mars opposition or square Uranus is a risk-taker and racer. It feeds off adrenaline and has very little patience. Mars/Uranus hard aspects seem to have a great rapport with electrical items and have no qualms about ripping them apart if they have broken down, often risking shocking themselves in the process. They can make great mechanics, but not without sparks flying out occasionally. Some astrologers associated this aspect with surgery. Sharp blades of Mars combine with Uranus’s sudden action so that these folk are great in an emergency.
Fireworks are symbolic of this aspect too, in the bedroom department as well as in temperament. And yes, a quick temper they will most certainly have.. These folk are easily aroused and will jump right into a sexual relationship without much forethought. When the novelty has worn off however, they may tire quite quickly. Stamina isn’t their forte! You get the picture then; Mars in hard aspect to Uranus folk are impulsive and quick off the mark, 0 – 60 in 30 seconds, no flies on them! Very decisive and incisive, they know what they want and how to get it as quickly as possible. These people are fantastic revolutionaries; they can rouse a crowd in their favour and get them to act with speed and efficiency. Mars in hard aspect to Uranus is so electrically charged that it works like a power battery, therefore they can really inspire and enthuse others into action. You literally can just plug into them and light up like a Christmas tree.
Mars Opposite Uranus
Those folk may be less the charging knights and more of an energy healer since the opposition could project Mars onto their client while they take the position of Uranus. Their thunderbolt hands then, can reboot your blocked chakras in a flash. These folk could indeed be ‘flashers’ however… Those streakers in the 70’s were probably Mars/Uranus types. Of course this is a rare fetish, so Mars opposite Uranus’s ‘flashing’ could occur in the sense of flouting convention and flaunting their sexuality as a political statement. Ie: Gay men will openly kiss in a very Catholic or intolerant country. Mars opposite Uranus women will be quick to point out hypocrisy in sexist cultures. Whatever the case, sexual rebellion and reformation is very strong here. Mars opposite Uranus is usually brave and forthright, but the opposition can have a tendency to polarise the energies, depending if one planet is markedly stronger than the other. The cool Uranian side could then become very geeky and even prudish, viewing others as being sexually vulgar or explicit in their passions. If these subject’s sexual side is suppressed, then this combination can become quite violent. Mars opposite Uranus at its worst can be very clinical with its anger. If other factors slow down their usual knee-jerk reaction, they can dish out a very callous revenge if you should ever cross them.
Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright (02’) is a great example of this aspect and he has certainly packed a lot of experiences into his 40 years. Rufus’s musical talent was apparent very young. He was playing piano from age 6 and touring at the age of 13 with his musical family. He says his parents, despite being bohemian folk singers, could never really handle him being gay. At 14 Rufus was sexually assaulted by a man he picked up in a London bar. In Hyde Park the young Rufus was raped, robbed and almost strangled. He was lucky to survive and only did so after feigning an epileptic seizure. He says he remained celibate for several years after the attack, but then after that became very promiscuous. At age 16 Rufus was nominated for most promising male vocalist and became world famous age 25. Between 2000-2002 to non-stop rise to fame brought an addiction to Crystal Meth and Rufus lost his vision for a time. He recovered and found his way back to success with critically acclaimed albums “Want I & II” (2003/4) and “Release the Stars” (2007) which went Gold. 2011 Rufus became a father and in 2012, finally married his partner of 5 years Jorn. Rufus stated “I wasn’t a huge gay marriage supporter before I met Jörn because I love the whole old-school promiscuous Oscar Wilde freak show of what ‘being gay’ once was. But since meeting Jörn that all changed.”~ Starpulse. Rufus has released 10 albums and has had more success in Britain and Canada than in his native America. His musical style “has been called ‘popera’ and ‘baroque pop’ containing several recurring themes: opera, literature, pop culture, politics, and love (often unrequited love).” ~ Wiki

Mars Square Uranus
The square is a Mars aspect so we get the doubling up of sex and speed here, sometimes both at the same time.. Passionate, fast and furious is their style because inside they have a raging war to conquer and modernise. Uranus here can cool Mars a little though, and the fast movement stirs up a refreshing breeze as these folk dash past you. Even though this is a square I don’t think it actually creates violence or malefic intent. What gets these folk in trouble most of all is impulsiveness. It also really needs freedom of movement, and will become most frustrated if people dawdle in from of them.
The worst that can happen is that Mars square Uranus will annoyingly tailgate you. These folk make hovering parents since they have no patience with little fingers and shoelaces, which is why then end up doing everything for everyone. They can end up burning themselves out if they are not careful. However they are usually quick to realise when they have been put upon, so they will suddenly shock their family or workmates by clearing off in a flash. A very Mars square Uranus way to do this would be to mount a Harley Davison and zoom off into the desert. All that Uranian chrome and Martian exhausts belching out gas, the wind in their hair, leathers and utter freedom, how could they resist?
Ewan McGregor (00’) is a Scottish actor famous for his roles in Moulin Rouge (he is a tenor), playing a heroin addict in Transpotting and the role of young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequel to Star Wars. He has four daughters (Two adopted from Mongolia) and a heart and dagger tattoo on his arm with their names and that of his wife. In 2007 McGregor said he had not had a drink in 7 years after a period where was a functioning alcoholic. McGregor has loved motorbikes since a child; In 2004 he made a mammoth motorcycle trip of 22, 345 miles from London to New York via Europe, Ukraine, Mongolia, Canada and the United States. He is also a UNICEF ambassador and does a great amount of work for charity. During his 2004 motorcycle trip he visited many UNICEF programs enroute. McGregor is heavily involved with charity work and combines this work with motorcycle, boat, plane and foot trips to remote parts of India. Nepal and the Congo. He has made many TV series documenting his motorbike journeys while at the same time publicising the plight of third world children. I’m tired just reading all that.. There is something quite dashing and heroic about Mars square Uranus, and they certainly get things done. Like I said previously, they haven’t got the patience for projects that take years, so they cover a lot of ground and get things done and dusted before boredom sets in.
