MARS IN 5TH HOUSE Of Solar Return Astrology chart
Mars in the 5th house indicates a more assertive style of self-expression. This may be most evident in creative projects, but it can also manifest in the personality.
You are less likely to practice self-restraint and more likely to take risks. You are willing to go out on a limb with a new train of thought. You gain confidence by trying new things, although in the beginning, your confidence tends to be fragile. This is a time when you can state what you want and go after what you need. You are direct and concise with a no-nonsense style that lets you be who you want to be.
You refuse to surrender your right to freedom of self-expression, and if someone is attempting to suppress your ideas or restrict your movements (regardless of their motives), you will fight back. For example, an astrology student with this placement consistently refused to give up her studies when her fundamentalist parents objected. Despite their feelings, she could not be swayed. You are very aware of the personality’s need for self-preservation and integrity. If someone is a threat, malicious or otherwise, you are ready to defend yourself. If you are involved in a continuing conflict, you will be willing to take the offensive if the situation warrants it. Some may think you are too pushy, and perhaps you are if you need to be reminded of the rights of others. Use this energy for creative endeavors and free self-expression. Do not focus on dominating or controlling others, especially children and lovers.
It is not especially common to start a love relationship during the year, but if you do, the relationship can be very exciting and based on a strong sexual attraction.
Desire and passion are most likely evoked by the person you are seeing, and these feelings play an important role in the relationship choices you make. Romance may not be as important as the electrifying energy that passes between the two of you when you are together. But there is no guarantee that a relationship will be all passion and no conflict; in fact, the fire that heats up your passion can also heat up your temper. In addition to the strong attraction, there is also a need for self-defense and unrestricted self-expression as discussed above. How do you defend yourself against a strong passion which is essentially an invisible power difficult to control? How do you maintain unrestricted self-expression when you are strongly involved with another person? Conflicts in relationships are common since couples will feel both the pull of attraction and the push for expression, or the desire for merger balanced by the need for freedom. Learning to maintain some measure of self-control and self-expression while in a relationship is the key to this placement.
If Mars is strongly aspected in the solar return chart, the relationship will be further complicated by other needs and issues in your life.
For example, if Mars is squared by a planet in the 2nd house and you are presently married with traditional monogamous morals, guilt can conflict with your passionate involvement. Mars opposed from the 11th can indicate a relationship which vacillates in its intensity. You and your partner may wonder whether you two are really lovers or merely friends. If a planet in the 8th house is square to Mars in the 5th, you and your lover may have different sexual rhythms, preferences, or ethics which need to be discussed and balanced.
If you are a parent, your children may be pushing for new levels of independence, regardless of their age.
One-year-olds go from crawling to running, toddlers enter the terrible twos, older children start school, teenagers learn to drive, get that first job, leave home to attend college, or start living on their own. The task they are working on is not as important as the reaction it causes in you. Basically, you are not ready for the changes and may disapprove of the choices they are making or the behavior they are exhibiting while out of your sight. Children appear more disruptive during this period of transition, but you are also less patient. They are probably coping with new situations, abilities, and problems. The newness builds stress, and they are easily frustrated. You, in turn, wish they would return to their old pattern of behavior which seems more settled and less taxing.
If your children are younger, they may disobey you, but if they are older, they will not only disagree with you, they will argue with you.
They are probably intelligent enough to point out all the flaws and discrepancies in your restrictions and disciplinary tactics. Don’t be surprised when they confront you with a logical attack on these inconsistencies. This exchange forces you to define further your position on any one issue and enables the child to push for change and freedom consistent with his or her real or imagined level of maturity. You, however, may not see it that way and attribute most of the tension to simple parent-child confrontations. These minor conflicts tend to be aggravating, but easier to handle than the well-planned, persistently orchestrated debate put on by some teenagers.
For those more creative individuals, this is a time for original work in new areas of expertise.
You should be willing to take artistic risks with your creations. If you are an artisan, experiment with new products or designs. If you are a writer, try a new style or genre. Innovations are important, and you can receive constructive criticism over your new approach. You should be ready to defend or explain your choices, but also use the information to refine your technique.
