Mars in Aquarius – Mars tightly aspecting Uranus
These people possess somewhat of an (if not a fully notable) androgynous edge. Representatives of the coming of Feminism, Human Rights and general leadership positions will often have a Uranian/Aquarian theme. A ‘just’ view of equality, taking part in activism, along with the balancing of masculine and feminine – often in the intellectual field, though in many spheres, are thanks to such folk. These areas of concern mentioned are specific to the most recent and current times, just as most, if not all, astrological wisdom is relative to to any particular era. Women’s rights and technological progression are just some examples of what has recently laid at the forefront of social change.
An Aquarian/Uranian Mars is not so much concerned with close personal, sentimental and emotional affairs as it is with improving, bettering and uniting – the world and humanity at large. There is often the gusto of ambition that is adjunct visions of future change supported by principle and deeper purpose. Getting caught up directly in the sweet, the dramatic, and the lovely, is not so much their ‘thing’ in the longer haul, as being too close to it all can potentially skew perception and fair judgement. Too much drama and egotism from others will have them running both far and fast, and prospective partners concerned too much with their own needs and wants over mankind or certain minorities/groups of people will almost certainly take negative consequences on the Mars in Aquarius’ affections. Though, the breaking of rules for a greater cause or reason, extending beyond preconceived limitations and general experimentation are common turn-on’s for these people. Honesty and truth is also a vital component, and manipulation/hiding of information for any personal reason is just not accepted.
If truth and principle do not seem to be an important theme in the lives of those with this aspect, strong drives to change the status quo whilst fulfilling and expressing personal desires backed by erratic impulse is another manifestation. Think of Hugh Hefner as an offbeat case of a Mars Aquarius individual.
However the libido and sexuality of these people is not necessarily any weaker than any other individual, some may perceive this to be the case as their processing is largely intellectual, abstract, and objective. They can go for bouts of physical inactivity and not appear to be affected, as long as their brain is being stimulated and in focus. This is why partners possessing the ability to take them on mental journeys and can invoke stimulation in such ways are able to ignite their sexuality and specific flavour of intimacy more than most. As many are not as basically ‘physical’ as others in regards to sensuality, they possess freedom in the ways in which they can express their sexuality, perceiving few limits except time and space itself. The capacity for a free-flowing sexuality is thus often higher being in the abstract realm, which can be both liberating and confusing, depending on their own or other’s judgement of such.
Kookiness, those that walk their own way (often literally), and a fluctuating kind of aloofness attached to a good/decent mind, are characteristics that make these people feel most at ease and will generally be drawn to others with such qualities. The sense of warmth and connection from an easy-going friendship is almost always more of an imperative over the intensity of a consuming love or highly involved friendship which is often fraught with drama and the focus on personal needs. It’s not that they are inherently shallow, it is often rather the case that their sensitivity often overwhelms them too easily. This, in conjunction with the perceived lack of importance of such mundane humanness and triviality compared to improving humanity and living a fulfilling progressive life is what tends to lead them to overlooking the “little things”. People that wish to cage them in will just not win in the long-term. Instead, those that choose to walk alongside them with a wish to better the future and are wilful in maintaining a sense of a mission too, can and will remain close allies if it seems to better both parties and the world at large.
