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.

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. You are hitting all my primal drives this week, Marina. First was Mercury oppose Neptune now it is Mars square Pluto. Mother’s little nightmare. Mars, stationary retrograde (and I’m an Aries), in Scorpio in the 5th house, kowabunga baby, don’t put the good sheets on his bed, squares Pluto in Leo in the 2nd. If I’d had better self-esteem I would have made a first class male prostitute, but I was too dignified, yes that is a strong element with this aspect, and I dreaded herpes spots on my lips! There is a built-in fail safe mechanism to this potent aspect, perhaps the stationary part is what tempered my over-powering Desire nature from finishing me off young.
    Stamina, reliability, loyalty and patience are keynotes. For an Aries this has been a good aspect but it has been like breaking a wild stallion that kicks and bucks and wants the anarchic freedom of the back range. I love having this heavyweight aspect. It has seen me through the seven circles of hell a few times. I am also a late bloomer and have rejuvenated my mind body and soul upon my 2nd Saturn return when many of my peers have settled down in front of the television and wait to die. Sometimes peeps are afraid of me though and that make me sad. They mistake shyness for threatening. It’s the smoldering thing. I enjoy smoldering.

    1. bloody hell!
      hope you don’t burst into flames
      or be hauled over the coals.
      only joking.

  2. This week is Shivratri in Hindu culture. Shiva and Parvati are well-known for their *vigorous* love-making sessions.

    “…After the two are married they depart to Mount Kailasha, Shiva’s favorite dwelling place, and immerse themselves completely in sexual dalliance, which continues uninterruptedly for long periods of time. The Love god Kama is resuscitated when Shiva embraces Parvati and the sweat from her body mingles with the ashes of the burned god.

    Their lovemaking is so intense that it shakes the cosmos, and the gods become frightened. They are frightened at the prospect of what a child will be like from the union of two such potent deities. They fear the child’s extraordinary powers.”

  3. It’s funny the synchronicity of this post with life events. I have Pluto in Scorpio conjunct Dsc at end of 6th in tight square to my Mars/Sun conjunction in Leo at the end of the 3rd. I always considered I wasn’t an ‘angry person’ but over the last 12 months I’ve been doing family counselling (I’m an adult in my late 20s with a chronic illness that keeps me dependent on family, having Saturn Return as we speak and mine’s in the 7th conjunct my moon – so family, health and relationships have been intensely challenging for several years, if not forever) and I’ve learned that having the space to express my feelings after years of family abuse and alcoholism (you can’t have a present, authentic, respectful conversation about emotions with an alcoholic if they’re not in that space) has allowed my true anger to surface. Last night I finally had a breakthrough in counselling with getting support about abuse from a family member. That abusive behaviour in them stems from sexual and other abuse they experienced in their childhood family, and I’ve understood that and took pity and put up with it but over time (many many years) it was eating me up and destroying my sanity and soul. To avoid the pain I cut off from feeling and that’s no way to live. So for me Mars Square Pluto in my chart shows abuse, simmering repressed anger but also tremendous inner strength and gut instincts about the truth and what’s right. I’m so glad I trusted myself and valued my self (this was completely on my own – no encouragement or anyone else who could fix my problems and pain) I’ve finally aired the truth and spoken up about it and now I have support from those who matter and safe distance from the one who continues to abuse. I feel calm for the first time in months and like my deepest beliefs about life (that it is meant to be about growth, healing, love and joy) has been vindicated. I have a lot of Pluto/Scorpio in my chart and while some people are scared of it I love that energy – the ability to perceive the undercurrents, strong emotional feelers and the courage and tenacity to fight when hurt – not by hurting back (that’s lower Scorpio) but through emotional insight, courage and strength. Without this energy and strong Pluto/Mars in my chart I feel I might have given in to what everyone was saying “there’s nothing wrong, you’re the one causing trouble etc”. It’s not in me to give in. Thanks for your post.

  4. Major agreement Lioness and Jeffrey. I have the same apsect but instead Mars conjunct Midheaven in Aquarius. My Pluto is definitely in the 7th conjunct the descendant in scorpio.
    I’m learning to love my placement.. As an Aries Sun, I’m learning how to not scare people away in a room with just my presence.

  5. My ex husband has a mars sq pluto and after separation he treats me in the most strange way. He has grudges although it was him who did everything his way and after a lot of drama and cheating he finally left us. He tries to dismiss anything I do and really, really tries to shove his new partner in my face. He also has a uranus square moon. I am sick of his behaviour and no longer want to see his face. Unfortunately when people have children together that is not possible so I am always civil but deep down I cannot stand him or respect him.

  6. Yeah. Some of them don’t like it when their exes are doing well even if it was them who turned their back. I don’t get it

  7. Would Mars contra-parallel Pluto be similar in dynamic to Mars/Pluto opposition?

  8. I do feel fascination for Mars-Pluton men. Dated one of them (conjunction in the first house) for years… quite a destructive relationship. Lots of sex and fights but he even wanted more sex and looked for it at my back. Everything ended when I began to find out the truth.
    Now there is another man… he has the square (partile), being Mars the ruler of his Sun. Nothing happened… as we both are involved with different people, but… the way he looks at me is like having sex, so intimate and intense. I’m really going crazy as I know this is the kind of guy I should run away from. I already had the experience, dont want a second time…but Oh God, they are magnetic!

  9. Funny, I have this at quite a wide orb- 9 degrees- and yet I feel it’s very potent in my chart.

  10. 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.

    1. 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. Antares ~ you are too far into intermixing pour of “love” into this one. Your Moon may be getting in the way.

  11. 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???

    1. 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.

  12. I have Mars in Aquarius in the 8th house, square a triple conjunction of the moon, Pluto, and Saturn down below in the fifth. I’m still trying to come to grips with this very difficult aspect and what it means about me. I definitely have explosive anger, but not u controllably so. Any ideas?

    1. No way! I was going to look at his chart and do a youtube examination. We have the Hollywood version of the BBC/Saville/Harris scandal. Was going to look to see any common features, but also why this has surfaced now.
