Mars and the Ascendant in favorable aspect

Astrological aspects: general introduction

The analysis of a natal chart must be as comprehensive as possible. This is what we do as we make our personalized reports available in our e-shop. It must be borne in mind that many astrologers concentrate on the interpretation of planets in signs and in houses, and of angles, without paying enough attention to aspects. On the contrary, we believe that when aspects involve personal planets between themselves or slow-moving planets, they are of fundamental importance. In all cases, they are at least as significant as the Ascendant or the Sun. This is particularly relevant when the orb is tight (i.e. when the aspect is exact). This is the criterion we apply for this new series of articles which describe how well-known personalities experience certain aspects.


Mars and the Ascendant in harmonious aspect

In this article, we explore the favorable relationship between Mars and the Ascendant, whether it's a beneficial conjunction - that is, receiving no negative aspects - a sextile, or a trine.

Let's recall that the Ascendant describes how the native wishes, more or less consciously, to appear to the world. It reveals a lot about their spontaneous reactions, their way of being, dressing, and behaving, as well as their personal tastes. It also provides valuable insights into their health and vitality.

The Ascendant plays a very important role in the analysis of the astrological chart as it depends on the precise moment of birth. Technically, it is the first sign that rises, located to the East of the horizon. It forms an axis with the Descendant and opens the 1st house.

Any planet closely linked to the Ascendant has a considerable impact, as it adds color and symbolism to the sign where the Ascendant is located. Sometimes, the compatibility is obvious, other times, the blend is subtle.

Now, let's talk about Mars, the planet of action. It is a Fire planet, ruler of Aries, and a secondary ruler of Scorpio (before the discovery of Pluto). In the sky, its red color evokes courage and warrior-like values. According to Roman mythology, Mars was the god of war (Ares in Greek mythology) and was revered for his favors in this area.

Positively, Mars endows sporting and military talents, though these strengths can also manifest as other forms of energy expenditure. We will see this with the examples chosen later in this article.

In all situations, when in a favorable celestial state, Mars embodies the spirit of initiative, strength, fervor, boldness, and dynamism, while it can cause anger, brutality, recklessness, and impulsiveness when in a delicate configuration.

Thus, those whose Ascendant is in harmony with Mars benefit from an added dose of qualities such as combativeness, the ability to act, and taking control of their lives.

A precious advantage in today's world, enabling them to never remain passive in the face of events, convinced that they have the means to face almost any challenge. Of course, this must be nuanced with the other elements of the chart.

In order to better explain this aspect, we are mentioning several well-known personalities (here Donald Trump (favorable conjunction favorable), Megan Fox (favorable conjunction favorable), Jim Carrey (sextile), and Rachida Dati (trine)). This article deliberately isolates the aspects so as to better describe them. For this reason, it claims on no account to be a psychological analysis of the celebrity in question, for whom many other articles are available in the "Focus" section.

It is possible to find thousands of other horoscopes having Mars and the Ascendant in favorable aspect (or any other aspects), with the online tool search. The planets, positions in sign and in house as well as the orb, are configurable.

Donald Trump

Donald Trump / Author: The White House 10-2020 / Public domain

The former President of the United States, aspiring to run again in 2024, possesses extraordinary energy. Whether one appreciates or detests him, Donald Trump built his path without anyone's help, through effort and the ambition to always aim higher in his career.

Mars is prominently featured in his astrological chart, positioned on the Ascendant and in the sign of Leo. Technically in the 12th house, it is nevertheless conjunct to this angle, infusing his pugnacious political personality with indomitable will, never backing down from anything, especially not danger.

He can be seen as a military character at heart, ready to engage in power struggles and face any adversary.

Nothing frightens a Mars like his, which confirms that pride is one of his driving forces. He embodies the proverb: the end justifies the means.

He does not seem to question himself, at least not outwardly, he just charges forward. He takes on every challenge with a confidence that makes his opponents' weaknesses seem ridiculous, often highlighted by his quick and caustic humor.

With Mars sextile to the Sun and trine to the Moon, this influence also extends to the other major components of his personality, beyond the Ascendant.

Impulsive and uncontrollable, Donald Trump portrays himself as a hyper-masculine figure, who enjoyed his heyday in the 80s and 90s, thanks to efficiently amassed wealth.

He has been an unrepentant seducer, successfully imposing his tall stature, which has become more imposing over the years.

At 78 years old in 2024, Donald Trump envisions himself once again as the 47th president of the world's leading power. Nothing seems to tire him.

Megan Fox

Although globally known for her striking beauty, actress Megan Fox is a great example of a successful Marsian.

As a child, she had to undergo treatment for hyperactivity, a problem associated with the dominance of this planet. Fortunately, her Mars is exceptionally well placed on the Ascendant in Capricorn, occupying an angular position and forming a double trine to the Sun and Mercury in Taurus.

This particular configuration endows Megan Fox with an energy more reserved than if the planet were in a Fire sign or stimulated by aggressive planets, but she is no less enduring in the long term. Megan Fox can sustain her efforts over time, demonstrating formidable resilience.

She thus seeks to surprise her audience, proving that she is much more than just a glamorous figure.

This Mars also allows her to fully embrace her imperfections. She is the first to admit she is not very sociable and cares little about public opinion regarding her private choices.

Her numerous tattoos also reflect her need to highlight her convictions and tastes. This is indeed typical of Mars in this configuration.

Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey, an actor much deeper than some initially perceived at the beginning of his career, is a Capricorn native. His tenacity is amplified by the presence of Mars in this sign where it is exalted.

Additionally, Mars forms a sextile with his Scorpio Ascendant, suggesting firm responses to danger or adversity. The actor faces these with significant strength of character, which can sometimes manifest as a certain harshness.

Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio, and in his case, it forms a trine with Pluto, which has been considered the modern ruler of Scorpio since its discovery. The significance of this emphasis allows him to demonstrate resilience above average. He literally rises from his ashes like a phoenix.

His personal life has thus provided opportunities to tap into his resources, as he had to overcome the suicide of his former partner and navigate familial conflicts with her relatives.

This ordeal initially plunged him into a depressive spiral. Later, he managed to recover after a few years.

After announcing the end of his acting career, he returned to the spotlight with a television series. This new phase in his life allowed him to find a partner and leave behind these misfortunes.

Rachida Dati

Rachida Dati / Author : Simon Kirby 04-2007 / CC BY-SA (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en)

When she was appointed Minister of Justice by Nicolas Sarkozy, Rachida Dati likely saw the realization of her hopes, after years of education and professional experiences.

Coming from a typical immigrant family with a Moroccan father who worked as a mason and an Algerian mother, among eleven siblings, Rachida Dati grew up in France. From an early age, she knew she wanted to succeed on her own, working hard to supplement her income during her studies. Being from a modest background, she understands the value of effort.

Her professional career is marked by numerous struggles: she wasn't always the most brilliant student, but knew how to set goals and adhere to them tenaciously, demonstrating exceptional perseverance and a sense of reality.

The political figure's Mars in Capricorn is unsurprisingly very well valued, benefiting from the support of two powerful slow-moving planets, Uranus and Pluto, giving her an original personality that attracts attention.

In particular, this Mars is in trine with the Taurus Ascendant, enhancing the values of the Earth element, common sense, and efficiency. For instance, she is credited with completing significant reforms, such as the reform of the juvenile penal code.

Her Mars in Capricorn is a weapon that has never betrayed her. She chose to have a daughter without being in a relationship with the father, going as far as to sue him for child support.

On her part, she returned to work just five days after giving birth... If that's not the portrait of a woman full of vigor, ready to return to the arena as soon as she can, then there probably aren't many.

Today, she continues her career as the mayor of the seventh arrondissement of Paris, maintaining an open rivalry with Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of the capital, and retains an undiminished ambition to obtain the highest responsibilities in the coming years, whether for Paris or at the national level.
