Solar Return Chart MOON - MARS Aspect

Moon-Mars aspects imply involvement in a situation which is emotionally uncomfortable yet rewarding, a mixed blessing. 

The energies represented here suggest working at cross-purposes and you may have ambivalent feelings about your circumstances. An example for illustrative purposes might be found in the experience of trying to comfort a sick baby. You know the baby is sick and does not feel well so you do every thing you can to comfort the poor child. But at the same time, you become very frustrated if nothing you do seems to stop the crying. At that point, stress is competing with concern and mixed feelings arise. 

Mars in aspect to the Moon is very suggestive of contradictory emotions. The Moon symbolizes our nurturing qualities, emotional connections, and feelings. Mars, on the other hand, symbolizes our self-interest, independence, and assertiveness. The basic interpretations for these two planets are so different that they tend to remain separate like oil and water. They represent two sides of the coin or different perspectives on one situation. For instance, a common situation often involving mixed emotions is having to say goodbye to a good friend because one of you is moving. If you are the person left behind, you may feel happy for your friend, but still sad about your loss. If you are the person moving, you may be excited about the move, yet sorry to be leaving. The purpose of the mixed feelings is to call attention to your own emotional needs (Moon) and take appropriate action accordingly (Mars). The mother of the fussy infant may need to take five minutes away from the baby to cope with stress. The person who is moving may need to concentrate on maintaining friendships even after relocation. 

Moon-Mars aspects suggest that emotional situations are not simple and usually involve a strange combination of emotions. They can also indicate that you might act in a way that detracts from your own sense of security and well-being, thereby creating stress. An example could be involvement in an extra-marital affair which never feels totally comfortable and stable. 
A Moon-Mars combination is not necessarily difficult, nor must it involve your personal life. It can refer to professional endeavors or social activism. You can be motivated to act because you are affected emotionally by what you see. If you are upset by conditions in a poor section of town, you might be motivated to volunteer your services at a local soup kitchen or community center.
