MARS IN THE 7TH HOUSE Of Solar Return Astrology Chart
This is a time to be energized by another person who can get you to do something you would not or could not do alone.

If the two of you can agree on mutual goals, you both can make great strides together. Your partner enthusiasm and drive be-come the primary motivating force. Most likely,

Hopefully, you will be dealing with someone who has your best interests at heart.
The problem associated with this placement is that you can be led down the wrong path if you do not choose your friends and partners carefully. If you are connected to individuals who are bad for you, their effect will be negative. For example, if you wish to start a food cooperative and your spouse feels you are too inept to succeed, his or her negative influence will hurt your chances for success. But if he or she is totally supportive, and in fact, leads the way, your chances are greatly improved. A lot depends on the partner's attitude. Since you are so susceptible to the influences of others, it is important to assess who the others are. Contacts can range from the most positive to the most detrimental, from successful achievement to damaging encounters. In the worst manifestation, involvement in a crime is possible. It is important to identify those relationships which are wrong for you and counteract their influence. Cultivate those more positive involvements which enhance your psychological health and soul qualities.
There is the possibility that you will be in a relationship which involves conflict.
You may be angry with someone you see daily, or this other person may be angry with you; anger in both directions is possible. It seems that every time you try to express your feelings to this other person, the two of you become involved in an argument. If this is your present situation, you could be involved in an ongoing conflict that continues throughout most of the year and colors your perceptions and attitudes.
Eventually, your frustration can spill over into other areas of your life, and affect other relationships if you do not understand and contain the negative impact the conflict is having on you.
Disagreements may be poorly defined or specific, but generally, involve a daily ongoing process. For example, a young man was to have inherited his grandfathers watch, but unfortunately, just before the grandfather died, another relative had him change his will, and the watch went to an uncle instead. It just so happened that the young man worked with the uncle daily in a family-run business. The uncle spent much time talking about his good fortune. The young man constantly felt angry and tense at work because of the uncle's presence and actions.
The conflict may only involve a general dislike for a person you see on a regular basis, or it can be more.
Interactions range from mild irritation to legal battles, personal vendettas, both sexual, and nonsexual harassment, and aggression of any kind. More than likely, another is an aggressor if you allow yourself to be the victim. Don't lose sight of your self-esteem and need for self-expression. Be aware of your rights in any given situation. Someone may be telling you what to do, what to wear, and who to be. You need to learn to practice assertiveness this year, and it could be necessary to learn to protect or defend yourself. In very difficult situations, you need to decide whether you will fight or retreat. Some situations can be ignored, or controlled; others require a more definitive response.
Learning to cope with angry people and angry situations may be part of the lesson associated with Mars in the 7th house of the solar return chart.
Now is the time to deal with unresolved issues even if they have lain dormant for many years. Time is running out, and you must act now. Learn to handle the curt responses and hurtful remarks and go for the heart of the conflict. Do not get sidetracked. Force the issues into the open, so they can be discussed and understood from all sides. As long as anger remains denied or insidious, problems cannot be resolved. If resolutions are totally unattainable, learn to shield yourself from the barbs or retreat to more beneficial situations. Do not stay in situations which are detrimental or counteract positive growth and insight.
Mars is also the planet of competitiveness.
Here in the 7th house, it shows that the spirit of com-petition spurs you to action. You will be motivated to work harder if you are competing with peers or even enemies. The I'll show you" attitude can work in your favor. You are very sensitive to criticism from others this year, and anticipation of future criticism, either real or imagined, can motivate you to work harder now and get more done.
