Mars square Jupiter must be the best combination for a military commander, for it is daring, courageous, pioneering and busting with red-hot, sexual energy. These folk are extremely physical beings and usually quite fit because they find it impossible to keep still for very long. Jupiter can be pretty greedy however, so some of them might end up quite beefy, but always over a muscular frame, and very robust, like good sturdy oxen. Mars/Jupiter combinations have a well-earned reputation for business and military success, mainly because they are so darned pushy and competitive.
These Go Getters find it very hard to take no for an answer in all areas of their life, but especially when it comes to sex. Mars square Jupiter adores the chase, the more their beloved plays hard-to-get, the more turned-on they become.

So they infuriate most people and get themselves into hot water often, but as supreme survivors they tend not to get too burnt. Irrepressible, sometimes vulgar and very saucy, their life can be one romp after another. Much of their young adulthood resembles a bawdy farce where everyone ran around half-dressed with pie on their face. And these folk do spend quite a lot of time wiping off pie…from betrayed spouses, defeated rivals or just from rollicking around with their many grandchildren.

They get so wrapped up in their passions that they are oblivious to the reactions of those around them.

These are societies conquistadors and conquering machines, constantly on a quest to make expand, learn, better themselves and grow. Life is one big adventure for Mars square Jupiter even if the square produces some accidents along the way. The protection from Jupiter will still serve them well, except they will probably have quite a few battle scars to show for their trophies.

Vincent Van Gogh did not live long enough to receive the fabulous financial success that his passionate Mars square Jupiter work generated. He died at 37 from a gun wound, though no one knows if he committed suicide for sure. He is famous for his bold, wildly colourful and expressive paintings and his reputation as the archetypical tortured artist. What is less well known is that Van Gogh was deeply religious and at one time wanted to become a pastor. While he worked as a missionary; “His choice of squalid living conditions did not endear him to the appalled church authorities, who dismissed him for “undermining the dignity of the priesthood.” ~ Wiki Vincent is a good example of another way this aspect can manifest. Vincent never married but frequented brothels. He suffered from mental illness and when sectioned, Gauguin (With whom he had a turbulent friendship) wrote of him “His state is worse, he wants to sleep with the patients, chase the nurses, and washes himself in the coal bucket. That is to say, he continues the biblical mortifications.” ~ Wiki. Vincent’s greed was for absinthe, a highly alcoholic spirit which further inflamed his psychotic episodes and deliriums.
