Mars-Chiron Aspects in Synastry: Healing Empathy

“Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do.”

David Wilkerson

When we radiate love, it spreads like ripples on a pond. Our expression of love touches those around us, who then pass on that warmth to others. Even small acts of affection have this ripple effect over time.

Holding the door for someone might make their day a little brighter. That person then says hello to a neighbor in a friendly way. The neighbor in turn laughs with a coworker later. Bit by bit, the positive energy of love is transmitted from one person to the next.

We are all candles of love. Even if someone has all the darkness in the world, they cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.

Have you ever felt like there’s a whole lot of passion and action in your relationship, but also a fair share of pain, wounding, and healing too?

If so, you and your partner may have some significant Mars-Chiron aspects in your synastry chart.

This post will explore how conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions between Mars and Chiron impact your relationships.

Mars Conjunct Chiron in Synastry: Passionately Healing Each Other’s Wounds

When Mars and Chiron are conjunct in synastry, intensities and passions flare up and expose vulnerable spots in both of you. There’s an energetic activation around confronting and working through your past pain, wounds, anger, and other intense emotions.

In this relationship, you’re both drawn to helping each other grow and heal from past hurts. There’s a ton of energy regarding taking action to improve yourself and each other. It’s like you’re each other’s coaches.

However, the process can get messy at times. Old wounds may unexpectedly get poked, martial tensions can arise, and you both need to learn not to take things so personally when that happens.

Yet you likely feel like you’ve known this person before. Your connection seems familiar, comfortable, and conflicting all at the same time. You can both be yourselves fully in each other’s presence. Together, you feel energized, alive, and driven to make your shared goals a reality.

Past betrayals could make it hard for you to trust in relationships. But your partner helps you open up and feel safe again through their respect and loyalty.

In turn, your confidence and reliability (Mars) help your partner overcome the ancestral shame (Chiron) they carry around libido and sexual identity (Mars). You’re each other’s mirror, helping strip off each other’s masks and relate to the true self within.

The key here is using all that fiery Martian energy for intentional healing, not harming. This connection provides endless opportunities for catharsis, renewal, and revival of each person’s “self”.

Mars Sextile Chiron in Synastry: Encouraging and Motivating Each Other’s Healing Journeys

The sextile is a positive, easeful aspect, like two planets shaking hands. In this harmonious aspect, Mars and Chiron support each other and motivate positive change. You’re able to stimulate, spur, and encourage each other in constructive ways without hitting super painful spots (at least most of the time!)

In this pairing, you help keep each other focused and on track towards growth and self-improvement. One of you may take on more of a coaching or mentoring role at times, guiding the other through healing processes or challenging comfort zones. There’s positive momentum here – you’re both able to face your sensitivities and tender spots with courage.

Mars fuels Chiron’s healing wisdom into pragmatic action, while Chiron teaches Mars to temper their willpower with compassion and empathy. The sextile aspect creates a stable base from which you can both grow.

Indeed, Mars sextile Chiron synastry gives a nice blend of fiery Martian get-up-and-go energy and Chiron’s gentle understanding of each other’s pain points and vulnerabilities. You’re able to compassionately work through issues and emerge better than before without causing too much extra drama or pain.

It’s an energizing yet safe connection for healing. As Mars is the planet of sex, sexual healing is also possible with the sextile.

Mars Square Chiron in Synastry: Clashing Regarding Each Person’s Paint Points

When Mars and Chiron are square in synastry, watch out! This pair signals lots of clashing and friction around your pain points, wounds, anger, and other intense emotional stuff. Your normal ways of asserting yourselves or dealing with conflict just don’t work well together.

In this relationship dynamic, you need to be ultra-careful not to set each other off in hurtful ways. Your buttons and sensitivities are super exposed and reactive to this aspect.

Anger or defensiveness can flare up rapidly if you’re not mindful. Past wounds may feel very fresh and close to the surface when self-restraint is not developed.

Indeed, with Mars-Chiron square, you often poke at each other’s sensitive spots and unconsciously provoke unhealed wounds. Hard aspects like this require tolerance and win-win compromise. You must learn to understand each other empathetically that you’re a perfectly imperfect human being.

On the bright side, this hot chemistry activates your inner ambitions, hopes, and desires. If you can learn to handle the Mars-Chiron square with self-awareness instead of blaming your partner, it provides incredible opportunities for growth.

Working through the tension and triggers of this square can catalyze profound healing in you both. But it’s sure not an easy or comfy ride! After all, how do you know your relationship is strong without struggles and hardships? Expect a bit of a rollercoaster of feelings with this one.

Mars Opposite Chiron in Synastry: Feeling Each Other’s Wounds and Sensitivities

If Mars and Chiron are opposite in your charts, you can feel each other’s wounds and pain points very acutely and intensely. It’s hard to ignore each other’s anger, sensitivities, and emotional vulnerabilities – they’re smack dab in front of you!

This opposition can make you both feel extra defensive and reactive when your softest spots get agitated. Knee-jerk reactions are common until you learn more productive ways of working with this energy. Hurtful comments or passive-aggressive tensions may plague the relationship.

Yet the opposition between your Mars and another’s Chiron creates intense chemistry with a “yin and yang” dynamic. You balance each other out in powerful ways.

Sexual attraction may be off the charts with this Mars opposite Chiron synastry! However much you compete and fight with each other, you’re still drawn to one another at the end of the day. However much you activate each other’s core wounds and sensitivities, you still love and treat each other with divine respect and dignity.

Love is the power of Chiron, the wise sage of all sages. Another upside is that you’re also able to deeply empathize with each other’s struggles once you move past the initial prickliness. Your wounds and weaknesses feel very familiar to each other because you’re really reflections of one another.

Yet power struggles can still plague your relationship until you learn to own your mistakes without blaming your partners. Everything happening in your life is because of You, the Creator of your own life, so you have to be willing to see the inner cause of your relationship problems.

Only then, the opposition provides a powerful mirror into your own and each other’s pain and how to heal. Though challenging at times, this aspect can catalyze incredible growth and self-realization.
