Mars Square/Opposition Jupiter ~ Conquista

Mars square or opposite Jupiter is 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 or opposite Jupiter adores the chase, the more their beloved plays hard-to-get, the more turned-on they become. They are so relentless in their pursuit, that often their would-be lover just gives in through to shear exhaustion, plus Mars/Jupiter are pretty irresistible once they turn on their dashing hero or heroine act.

Mars square or opposite Jupiter can whisk you off your feet quite easily even as you are cursing yourself for letting them do so. These folk are winners, pure and simple, the square just makes them more determined! 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.

Bawdy Conquistadors

Much of Mars/Jupiter’s 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.

Mars square or opposite Jupiter have great gusto and can come across as being a bit too enthusiastic sometimes, but they are fantastic sales people. They get so wrapped up in their passions that they are oblivious to the reactions of those around them.

Mars square or opposite Jupiter often wrongly assume that their peers or partner feel just as exuberant as they do. This leads to accusations tactlessness and insensitivity when others might be experiencing sadness or depression. Mars/Jupiter’s approach to gloom would be to slap you hard on the back, and in a voice like that of Brian Blessed, bellow “Come oooon, snap out of it, life’s too short!”

These feisty individuals are certainly not ones to cry over split milk. 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.

Mars Square Jupiter

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 van-goghfriendship) 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.

Richard Gere is a perfect example of the red-blooded nymph-chasing side of this aspect. Mars is passionate and with Jupiter makes him a sex symbol. Indeed most of Gere’s most famous roles such as in ‘Pretty Woman’ and an ‘Officer & A Gentleman’ have him cast as the romantic lead and heartthrob.

As a result he was named People’s magazine ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ in 1999. The spiritual side of Jupiter comes out strongly in Gere’s life. He was brought up in the Methodist church and his father wanted originally to become a minister.

Gere became interested in Buddhism in his twenties, then studied Zen Buddhism for 6 years. He travelled to Nepal and met the 14th Dalai Lama and then became a practicing Tibetan Buddhist. Gere campaigns for human rights in Tibet, because of this he is permanently banned from entering China. Gere is obviously passionate (Mars) about foreign cultures (Jupiter). Mars opposite Jupiter is quite a crusading energy.“ Gere actively supports ‘Survival (Mars) International’ (Jupiter), an organisation dedicated to protecting the rights and lands of tribal peoples throughout the world.” ~ Wiki

  1. I have Mars opposite Jupiter, I was in the Girl Scouts , I loved marching and flag demonstrations. I was in the school band and played at football games. I didn’t join the peace core, but later on learned re forestation, I planted trees on a crew where logging had occurred , I worked in a large organic garden and later the forest service , putting out forest fires

  2. hey I have mar opposite jup to the 1/2 degree… didnt like the army 🙁

    1. I don’t think they meant to imply that anyone with these aspects would automatically be in the army or enjoy it. There is likely an increased tendency to be in such careers, or at least in government or a career that involved competition in some way. You obviously have to look at the entire chart. I have Mars in Aries in the 10th square Jupiter and I have never been in the armed forces but I am competitive, have worked for the government, and also just generally have the common restlessness with high energy followed by periods of exhaustion. We can sometimes waste opportunities or take unnecessary gambles. As the article shows, there is a lot more to it than just the army. I am not sure why that is the only thing you are getting out of this.

    2. I would even argue that this kind of aspect can be bad in military because you may buck authority and hate being told what to do (but could maybe deal with leading in military). It depends a lot on the chart as a whole.

      And, personally, I never relate to the high sex stuff that is said of this aspect or also my Mars/Venus in Aries, but again, the whole chart must be looked at. I have just about everything touching Neptune in my chart, which makes physical closeness less appealing than my lofty ideals. I live in a dream world.

  3. Mars square jupiter: I tend to overdo things and I’m pretty violent when it comes to dealing with anger even though I’m female. Good point I think is being passionate and adventurous. This aspect saves my Mars saturn conjunctions!

    1. I don’t associate violence with Mars-Jupiter by itself. It could be something else, such as Moon and Mars hard aspects making it difficult to contain emotions, or Sun in hard aspect with Pluto making it difficult to deal with how others behave (wanting to force control over others). There are various influences that may increase physical outbursts but I would think you need more than just a Mars-Jupiter square. If anything, I believe Jupiter is as a more benefic influence, even in hard aspect, and should soften anger from Mars. Yes, Jupiter can increase what it touches and Mars rules over physical contact, but in general Jupiter would be less likely to allow violence because that is against its nature. However, if you had a T-square or some other aspect with other planets, such as Uranus or the Moon, I could see this being an emotional problem that could lead to violence (without control and maturity). I know someone with Jupiter conjunct Uranus, which is square Mars conjunct Venus, and opposite the Moon (the Moon is the focal point of the aspect). He is quick to have emotional outbursts in general and does get into verbal and physical disputes. I would call his emotional behavior rather immature, though, and I would not place the blame on Mars-Jupiter alone, obviously. If anything, it might keep him out of serious trouble (he has been lucky to not be arrested or seriously hurt anyone).

  4. I also love selling and can relate to some of what is written here. Gave me a good laugh. I tend to exhaust people lol. Did I mention I was an introvert? Lol
