Mars-Mars Aspects in Synastry: Sparks Will Fly

“Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.”

Joan Crawford

Holding on to anger and resentment, which is what Mars represents in astrology, causes suffering. Forgiveness is an act of love towards ourselves and others. It lifts heavy burdens from our hearts and sets us free. When we let go, we open up space for more love.

Have you ever felt an instant, almost magnetic attraction to someone? That feeling that you just have to be near them, like your energies are pulled together?

Chances are, you and that person have a Mars-Mars aspect in your synastry chart!

Mars contacts between charts indicate passion, sexual chemistry, and activity between two people. But while all Mars connections indicate high energy, how that energy plays out depends on each unique aspect.

Let’s look at five major Mars-Mars aspects to see how your synastry sparks may fly!

Disclaimer: Synastry is an art of possibility and potential.

Mars Conjunct Mars in Synastry: Pure Fire

If your Mars conjuncts your partner’s Mars, your drives and desires seem to perfectly align. It’s like you two operate on the same wavelength when it comes to taking action and going after what you want.

There’s a feeling of “I’ve finally met my match!” The energy between you is electrically charged. You fire each other up and encourage boldness and risk-taking behavior. Together you make an unstoppable pair.

Mars is the planet of passion, so you both have a mutual passion. Like wildfire in a dry forest, desire combusts between you. Tempers may flare, yet the makeup sex sizzles. Your ambitions align in purposeful action.

Together you can move mountains or burn down the village. Such is the vitality conjured when your warrior planets unite!

Indeed, Mars conjunct Mars synastry is the most explosive and dynamic Mars aspect of them all. The energy between you is like fireworks, fast and fiery. There’s a raw, almost primal attraction here that’s hard to resist.

You and your partner will be highly passionate with this conjunction. You’ll find it hard to keep your hands off each other! Arguments are also likely since you both have dominating Mars energy. The key here is to channel the passion into productive outlets so it doesn’t combust.

When you approach your partner with respect, Mars conjunct Mars synastry ignites incredible magnetism, confidence, and chemistry in a couple. You spur each other on to be the very best versions of yourselves!

Mars Sextile Mars in Synastry: Smooth Sailing

The sextile between Mars is a blissful aspect that highlights the positive side of your connection. There’s a lovely flow of active energy here. Your desires and ambitions are compatible, so you work well as a team.

You can bring out each other’s daring, assertive side in a way that feels fun rather than threatening. Your partner makes you feel more bold and self-assured. You don’t hold each other back but provide one another with genuine encouragement to pursue dreams.

Since the sextile is a more gentle, subtle aspect than the conjunction, you’re not overpowered by passion. The attraction between you simmers rather than burns out of control. But it’s still deeply satisfying!

This aspect allows you to be incredibly productive together. You can channel all that dynamic Mars energy into mutual goals without butting heads too often. It’s full speed ahead with harmony and teamwork!

In fact, with Mars sextile Mars synastry, your passion flows in harmony. The sex thrills consistently. You help build each other’s confidence in the bedroom and in life, making each other feel sexy and bold.

Arguments are rare and soon resolved. You feel greater personal power as a couple than you do alone. Under this influence, you can take your intimate life to new heights of sensual expression. The god of war conspires to fan the flames of your mutual desire for love and trust!

Mars Square Mars in Synastry: Clashing Forces

With Mars square Mars synastry, the energy between you two seems to be prickly and competitive. Your desires and impulses are at cross-purposes. What one of you wants, the other may undermine.

Your partner’s approach to asserting themselves and going after their ambitions can rub you the wrong way. And likewise, they feel you’re too forceful in pursuing your goals. It may seem like a constant power struggle.

Fights can break out over seemingly trivial things because your basic urges and temperaments conflict. You need to give each other plenty of breathing room in this relationship. Trying to control the other will only backfire.

With Mars square Mars synastry, your physical chemistry is also hot but the ride is bumpy. This contact indicates strong sexual attraction but clashing styles.

You and your partner both have strong Mars energy, but you apply it differently. This can cause power struggles and arguments. If you don’t keep your egotistical tendencies in check, you’ll often find yourself engaged in heated debates. Anger and frustration can build up until it explodes into fighting or passionate sex.

Despite the clashes, this can be an addictive chemistry. You’re intrigued by each other and feel compelled to interact. Your war planets are obsessed with each other, spellbound in a tempestuous dance. The gods of war are at odds yet seduced by strife.

Mars square Mars synastry can be worked with by understanding each other’s style and finding a compromise. You are the United States and your partner is China. You will need to find a diplomatic compromise that works for you both!

Just like other opposite aspects, Mars opposite Mars connects your energies in intense and complex ways. The attraction between you is strong – almost magnetic. But it’s a chaotic mixture of great passion and great frustration.
