Here, two individual egos aspire to one and the same direction. Competition is possible, but it can be directed towards a common goal. Thus, a woman is identified with the figure of the animus to keep up with her partner. In doing so, she loses some of her femininity in a kind of "brotherly" competition. Nevertheless, each is pushing the other to express maximum energy. Sexual expression can be difficult, as each of the partners is challenging the other, finding no susceptibility in response. This aspect can be disappointing or can stimulate significant achievements for both partners.

This aspect brings expansiveness to the relationship. A man sees a woman inspiring, but she must use sanity and wisdom to keep the relationship from the excesses. It has a lot of activity, but partners must define clear objectives. Interest in sports, games and travel is a part of this aspect. When both partners activate each other, a man acts through instinct and a woman - through understanding. If both partners are wise enough to overcome any primitive or childish impulses, which may be the result of excessive enthusiasm, then there is a possibility of a large material wealth or spiritual growth.

A woman fills her partner's impulses, often childish, with value and realism. A man sees her as a controlling factor in the relationship, but respects her wisdom and sense of correctness. His vigorous desires stimulate her, and she provides a solid foundation for his ego. This is a karmic aspect, in which a woman takes his father's role. She leads her partner to the wisdom and dignity, which, in her opinion, he deserves. A man tries to win her respect, as if she was his father, but he can do it, just following her principles. This aspect is usually found in relationships where a woman is trying to correct the child's ego problem. She directs the energy of a man in the productive sphere the same way that she was taught to direct her own ego. Thus, both partners seek to build a future based on her traditions.

This is an important karmic aspect. Here, a man must be a father to himself, as he plays back the process of combining impulsiveness with wisdom, which he had been taught as a child. He sees a woman as a reflection of one's own ego and attempts to lead her in the direction that he considered significant. She, in turn, stimulates him with the help of her vitality and energy spurting through the edge. However, she can not feel her femininity or even her true identity, because "decorations" for this relationship are man's karmic task and hereditary background. She may impulsively push him to overcome some difficult or complicated problems. A woman can even take over some of his karmic burden. However, ultimately, it is his slowness and sense of purpose that give depth and value to this enlightening relationship.

A woman strongly attempts to win the attention of an impassive man. She can play not her own role, seeking to accept his personality, she needs to create a tangible reality. Thus, the relationship can be exciting, but a woman must learn to expect the unexpected. Trying to create a closer relationship, a woman tries to get more personal involvement from a man. Although her persistence can please him, he carries it only in small doses, and tends to intermittent interruptions in partnership to keep his sense of freedom.

Mars squares in Synastry

Both partners feel the tension, as the needs of different egos come into conflict with each other. A woman has to be overly assertive to compete with the challenges that her partner presents. Both fight for their individual personality in stimulating and warlike partnership. Passions flare up, and a general sense of irritability may be the result of the fact that none of the partners feels the advantages of his power. At best, it is a difficult aspect for a lasting relationship.

This aspect can cause great activity without a real reason. The instincts and impulses of a man contradict to woman's ideas or philosophy. He tries to assert his rights, not understanding clearly her point of view. Thus, a man seeks to reach out to a woman, whose view of life seems to be beyond his reach. The strong difference in beliefs is possible, which makes it difficult to preserve the relationship, especially in view of the fact that a woman tends to judge the motivation of her partner. Frustration and anger push each person to individual life, rather than to preserve a smooth and lasting partnership.

With this karmic aspect, a man and a woman are attracted to each other due to mutual lessons they need to learn. A man tries to impress his partner and discovers that her standards are in conflict with his efforts. A woman may try to control and focus his ego, which she considers too immature. Subconsciously acting as a father figure, she becomes a guiding force for the relationship. However, her demands seem unreasonably heavy for a man, as he calls into question the source of her wisdom, a sense of correctness and direction in which she moves. This is an aspect of achievements. If each of the partners will be able to understand the significance of the function of the other (though they vary significantly), the relationship can be built on a solid foundation. A woman has inherited a sense of wisdom from her father, and she has to use it to create a sphere of activity for "grounding" of man's impulsivity. She must be the "backbone" of the relationship, which disturbs a partner, but he needs it to find the desired goal in life.

When he learns this, the partnership will be filled with meaning and purpose.

This aspect creates a very excited and unstable relationship. Although there is a lot of excitement and intense attraction, there is unstable quality also, which causes sudden and unpredictable turns of events. A man can be disappointed with the changing sexual nature of a woman. She has the ability to attract, but not the ability to obey. Although with this aspect there is a lot of "sparks", there may be no sufficient stability for a long-term relationship.

In this aspect a woman tends to subconsciously take the male role, sacrificing her femininity in an attempt to reach out to her partner. However, his detached sense of independence and philosophically impartial positions irritate her, causing the feeling that her efforts wasted. A man retains his independence, while a woman is faced with the difficult challenge of maintaining control over herself, when she tries to win his freedom instinct. As a result, this relationship can be especially unilateral, they lack not only a solid foundation, but also mutual concessions that constitute the essence of a strong partnership.

In this relationship, both partners experience permutation of roles. A woman accepts male role trying to compensate power, which, in her opinion, a man lacks. As a result, he can be outraged due to the fact that she interferes with his delicate fantasies. The more she tends to move forward, the more he tries to escape in a secluded private reality. As a result, she may lose the sense of the direction in which they are both moving. Although this aspect indicates the presence of sexual energy, it lacks the essence from which a strong relationship can be formed.
Man's Mars in square to woman's Pluto
This is one of the most difficult aspects in relationships. "The essence of the survival" of each individual comes into conflict with the other, since both partners try to stay in contact with a sense of "I". A man openly fights to defend his independence, whereas a woman does the same thing subconsciously. Severe tensions are possible, as well as an abundance of strife, as each partner is trying to win another. Good sexuality can ultimately transform a woman, as she always destroys the past, while a man prepares the ground for the future. If their charts have no other meaningful and powerful aspects, partners may have no common ground for a meeting of her past and his future. As a result, this aspect reveals the harsh reality of a brutal self-transformation, which may be too rough for a long relationship.
Woman's Mars in square to man's Pluto
This aspect is very unstable, as a woman, being identified with the animus figure, loses herself in the subconscious motives of a man. Both partners fight for power - one hopes to win another. A man can be stubborn, if he feels that his hidden needs are repressed. Intensive sexuality may become a theater of war, which is used to resolve the basic incompatibility of this aspect. Ultimately, a man will experience a transformation as he becomes aware of his new depths. However, he rarely approaches woman's consciousness, no matter how much he changes or grows.

In the karmic sense, a woman cooperates with the image of her father, and even though her partner may be not aware of her femininity, however, he sees the potential of her ego. In past lives she has created a need to identify with the idea, principle or tradition that goes beyond her personal "I". Through these relationships, she is drawn to that what is beyond the capacity of her age, striving to achieve status, honor and meaning that can only come with the wisdom of age.

Mars Oppositions in Synastry
Mars in opposition to Mars
This is a very difficult aspect. Egos of both partners are involved in a tug on the rope, trying to realize personal goals. A woman plays not a female role and should be overly assertive to be heard. But every action has an equal reaction. As a result, the more a woman asserts her rights, the more a man manifests assertiveness in the opposite direction. There may be a strong sexual attraction, but it is often too intense for understanding by partners. A woman sees that she is so enmeshed in the male ego, that eventually may feel that she is required too many sacrifices to make the relationship work.
Man's Mars in opposition to woman's Jupiter
This aspect causes energy dissipation, as well as difficulty with understanding the real essence of the relationship. A man acts through his ego, and a woman - through the higher mind. However, neither her ideas nor his pulses apparently are not on the same wavelength. As a result, man's efforts, aimed at impressing her, take him to the side, making it difficult for both partners to understand their sense of purpose.

She sees things subjectively, while he can consider them distantly at a higher level. Both partners fight for personal freedom, but this fight will likely hurt a woman, because she is deeply involved in the relationship, while her partner does not accept any liability.
Man's Mars in opposition to woman's Saturn
A man fights for liberation from the father's figure that he sees in his partner. She represents crystallized rules, traditions and formalities, which he wouldn't like to be the part of. She finds him irresponsible and too young. There is tension due to the strong difference between two points of view. A man has a choice between self-expression and the ability to establish himself as an authority figure. In the karmic sense, he attracted this relationship to eventually learn how to break the shackles of prohibitions and become an independent person. Thus, the more a woman tries to limit him and keep within her expectations, the more she learns that it is impossible to control the other person always. As a result, a woman should give a man freedom to gain her sense of self-worth.
Woman's Mars in opposition to man's Saturn
Here a woman plays not her natural role, and because of this she is forced to turn her ego against her partner, as she tries to symbolically get rid of addiction to him. He may encumber her with traditions or encourage the search for her identity. As a result, a woman should know that she tries to overcome not the father's figure, but rather her internal constraints. Realizing this, she will get rid of the excessive karmic weight of the relationship, allowing a man to realize that he also learns to discipline himself.
Man's Mars in opposition to woman's Uranus
This aspect causes changes and is characterized by unpredictability. A man tries to win free woman's spirit. However, she is not interested in being defeated. Instead, she seeks to preserve the sense of isolated individuality, avoiding close relationship and proximity. A man also wants to retain his unique identity. But his desires are more secret and intimate. He sees the relationship and his role in it mainly through his ego. At the same time unattainable woman acts through universal mind and needs wider horizons to maintain her interest.
Woman's Mars in opposition to man's Uranus
A woman is overly identified with her animus. She struggles with herself, trying to understand why a man does not act the way she expects. His sense of alienation and detachment disappoint her, but her need to respond to the challenges is constantly stimulated by his impartial position. She may lose a significant part of herself, trying to achieve the unachievable, since a man, who in the end turns out to be rather a friend than a lover, can not be the kind of man which she subconsciously tries to win.
Man's Mars in opposition to woman's Neptune
This aspect is often a cause of deceit. A man tries to conquer a woman and very often deceives himself. Instead of seeing the fullness of his partner, his instinctive nature tends to the stereotype, which may not exist. A woman sees his effort, but can do little to soften the illusions with which he fights. As a result, the relationship becomes like a knight in armor, who is trying to win a cloud that is flying by.
Woman's Mars in opposition to man's Neptune
Here a woman plays not her natural role, since she pursues some impressive illusion created by her partner. Using all the power she could gather, she tries to tear the veil of illusion. But the more she tries, the more loses herself in that which in the end may become disappointing experience.
Man's Mars in opposition to woman's Pluto
This aspect causes tension in the relationship. Cruelty, hatred, and perhaps even violence may be there, as a man persistently urges and pushes a woman to realize that everything must be changed if she is going to experience a rebirth. She may resent the rudeness of his attacks and eventually come to feel that the relationship only offers her harsh treatment and punishment. Sexuality can be very intense, but it contains rudeness, as none of the partners manifests kindness and respect to himself and to the other.
Woman's Mars in opposition to man's Pluto
Here a woman excessively emphasizes male role. Everything becomes exaggerated, as she tries to reach her partner in the very center of his subconscious existence. She incites and provokes him, as if unconsciously blaming him for the lack of her femininity. A man feels his transformation, but can not communicate with irritation and anger outbursts, which he sees in his partner. This aspect can bring out the worst in both partners. If other aspects of the charts indicate common sense and good judgment, then in a very short period of time a lot of lessons can be understood here.
