NOV 19. Mars square or opposition Pluto marries sex with power, since the dynamism of the hard aspect will pull out these planets most domineering qualities. Negatively this aspect makes the bully or ruthless dictator. However in an otherwise sensitive chart, Mars/Pluto hard aspects will give the subject steel guts and the deep courage of a survivor. Negatively these folk may harbour vengeful thoughts or be sexually jealous, but they will never show this on the outside.

Mars square or opposition Pluto is the classic predator aspect, they will quietly stalk their desires skillfully in very much a ‘softly, softly, catchy monkey’ manner. They excel in sports because of their clever tactics and huge reserves of energy. Mars/Pluto’s stamina is unrivaled and they also have the ability to dice with death too. Like the conjunction, these folk are the phoenixs who rise from the ashes time and time again. The hard aspect really gives them the edge for it seems that every accident or emotional wound just makes Mars/Pluto even stronger, like some sort of hydra. You really don’t want to attempt to cut off their heads!

Protector Or Predator?

Mars square or opposition Pluto thrives on danger and trauma, the adrenaline runs like petrol through their veins. They are fantastic to have around in an emergency situation, but can also seem at times that they prey a little too much on other peoples life-dramas. The perfect career for them would be kind of bungee-jumping, sex-therapist. One who fearlessly plunges into the dark dungeons of other peoples perverted fantasies without a second thought. They find it all fascinating.

One thing’s for sure, you will never feel embarrassed confiding to Mars square or opposition Pluto. They have no shame and expect you not to have either. Sexually this is a bit of a humdinger; they really need to channel this furious energy into physical exercise if they do not have a partner. But even if they DO have a partner, one may not be enough. If they have a very fiery chart generally then Mars square square or opposition Pluto is going to make them even more sexually voracious. If they find a partner with an equal libido though, they will be fine and can use this incredibly potent energy to transform and reform. Mars square or opposition Pluto does best as a political activist. Higher vibration types have transmuted their wilder instincts into the ability to see danger coming and become great protectors of those who would otherwise suffer abuse.

Mars/Pluto ~ Hard Aspects

Joseph Stalin’s name actually means ‘man of steel’. He rebelled against becoming a priest and became on of the key players in the Russian revolution of 1917. Stalin became the supreme leader of the Communist party and ruled over the then Soviet Union for 25 years. Stalin brought rapid industrialisation to Russia, ruthlessly inflicting targets onto his factories which workers found impossible to fulfil. Under Stalin millions of Ukranians starved to death in an imposed famine. “Now, 75 years after one of the great forgotten crimes of modern times, Stalin’s man-made famine of 1932/3,…it was a deliberate policy aimed at the entire Soviet peasant population – Russian, Ukrainian and Kazakh – especially better-off, small-time farmers. It was a class war designed to ‘break the back of the peasantry’.” Daily Mail.  Stalin ranks number 2 as one of the most murderous dictators in history.

Mars opposite PlutoAll this from a man who was only 5ft 4 inches tall and wore stacked shoes. Stalin was also not the most aesthetic man. He had a poc marked face, a webbed left foot and an injured left arm. As a youth he deliberately cultivated a scruffy appearance as a rejection of middle class refinement, but he allowed himself a symbolic red satin shirt. Stalin seemed to have had a very Mars/Pluto personality by all accounts. He is described as cantankerous and ambitious yet also having great self control. He was known to be quite a dare-devil and took physical risks. He could be quite morose yet also charismatic. “Montefiore noted that “in politics, he was exceptionally suspicious, vengeful and sadistic”. Similarly, Volkogonov described him as having a “cold lack of compassion”…..Montefiore also regarded him as a “natural extremist” due to the brutality he displayed when angry.” ~ Wiki Stalin made great use of Pluto propaganda and a ‘cult of personality’ developed around him. Posters depicted him as being the beloved father of the nation contradicting his war crimes.

Edwina Currie (03’) is a controversial ex-Conservative politician. She is famous for her strong opinions, her affair with ex PM John Major and the “Salmonella in Eggs” scandal. As Junior health minister one of her more outrageous statements often quoted was that northerners die of “ignorance and chips“. Edwina’s biggest blunder, which would cast her to the back benches, was saying that “Most of the egg production in this country, sadly, is now affected with salmonella”. This caused a 60% decline in egg sales, incensed farmers and led to her resignation in 1988. However in 2001 a covered up Whitehall document revealed that Edwina was indeed right and there had infact been a “salmonella epidemic of considerable proportions” around the time of her resignation.

Mars square PlutoAfter 14 years as an MP Edwina became an author and TV presenter. In 2002 she published her diaries, which revealed her 4 year affair with John Major before he became prime minister. She said he had been the “love of her life” despite also slamming him for being incompetent as a prime minister. Edwina decided to come clean about the affair after many years of denial and after successfully suing playwrite David Hare for libel (in portraying an “Edwina Currie like” figure as a sexual predator and murderer.) Mars and Pluto, Sex and politics mix for her again when she would pen one of many sexually explicit novels “A Parliamentary Affair”. Edwina has often been ridiculed and was called ‘Eggwina’ and ‘vilest lady in Britain’. Not so these days, like all good Mars square Plutos, she is resurrected and matured, has channeled her forked tongue into her writing and continues to be a presence in the mass media either in print or on the TV.

  1. I have Mars Square pluto (0 orb so its exact) and my mars is in pisces 7th house. I used to be abused from family members and others in general as a kid.i always feel like i have enemies to crush to keep my position. Now that im older, ive been domineering and power-hungry as a person. I do have problems with anger and i usually lash out whenever i dont get my way. My girlfriend says im too controlling and with trust issues but i cant help it, my pride goes within my ability. Are these traits from my mars/pluto square? My girlfriend has a moon/pluto conjunction.

    • Hey dude, it’s good that you’re aware of all this. Traditionally, Mars square Pluto people could be seen to be jealous and untrusting, but that all stems from your own insecurities. The message from Pkuto is that we have to love ourselves regardless of our dark side. We must love ourselves unconditionally. As someone with this in your chart, you’d be one dor radically transforming your actions and perspectives whenever you are hurt and angry, so I’d like to think that by now you have come to understand how to love yourself fully (as you would have a deep well of wisdom and unconsciously would strive towards what Pkuto wants, especially after periods of pain). I’m trying to say that you instantly rise like a pheonix from the ashes after every hurtful time, and so learn to strengthen and protect yourself. The key way to transform is to love yourself fully. As, if there’s no enemy within, then no enemy on the outside can hurt you. I was born with this, and my moon is conjunct my Pluto, so your gf might have also suffered from a domineering mother or parent. But don’t dwell together on your misfortunes. Grow together in unconditional love for each other and within yourselves dude. Good luck, hope this reaches you!

  2. I have Mars square Pluto. My Mars is in Gemini (H7) and closely conjunct my Venus (-2 degree orb). Pluto is in Virgo (H10). Since I was a little kid I hated manipulation– I realized the difference when people did things out of manipulation or the heart. It’s only real and true when it comes from the heart and you can’t force people’s hearts.

    I have Neptune conjunct my ASC though– so that’s probably the “otherwise sensitive chart” you mention?

    Time and time again, I have found myself with power mad, micro-managing, manipulation masters in my work places. Without trying I seem to threaten manager’s sense of self security???

    • Juliet,
      Given that the nature of manager jobs are often rife with this type of personality, it seems wise to not
      take it too personally. And, there could be some unresolved residues from your subconscious, like resentment, self-doubt, etc. that operate as triggers for these people. So examining these possibilities is taking responsibility for your own energy, whether you are expressing Mars/Pluto or deferring to the Neptune qualities, (which can often be denial and not seeing the picture clearly).
      Beyond those things, try staying open and in your heart anyway, but for yourself, not in the workplace… as the game there is often brutal and unconscious.
