SUN SQUARE or OPPOSITE MARS in Solar Return Chart
Mars symbolizes the energy necessary for successful accomplishment.
When Mars is square or opposite the Sun in Solar Return,
The project you are working on will require a great deal of effort. Personal or professional achievement can come at a cost if you work at cross purposes, or are driven by outside influences to produce quickly and beyond reasonable expectations. Your schedule can strain your relationships or impact your health. You might not have the support or resources you need to succeed. Conditions may be more difficult than need be. You can be successful, but at what cost to you, your relationships, lifestyle, and health. Moderation is necessary, and you need to build this into the schedule by standing up for your rights.
When the Sun and Mars are square or opposite in the solar return chart, self-interest conflicts with the goals and interests of others. If the Sun or Mars falls in the 👉 10th or 👉 6th house, the conflict of interest might be job-related. If the Sun or Mars falls in the 👉 2nd or 👉 8th house, the conflict might be financial. In the 👉 1st and 👉 7th houses, the conflict involves individual freedom versus partnership commitment. The native is torn between two dynamic forces, one dealing with self-interest and preservation, the other with an external expectation.
Too much emphasis on self makes for tense relations. Too little concern for self leads to compromising conditions that may have serious implications.
Competition for any accomplishment can be stiff. Others may view you as an aggressive outsider when you should be a contributing team player. In stressful situations, competition could escalate into anger and conflict. You may need to defend yourself, your actions, or your project from those who would disagree with you or rather see you fail. Prolonged anger creates blockages which waste energy in a cycle of negative emotions that have no real purpose or goal. This can lead to self-sabotage or destructive urges.
The question becomes,
"Are others jealous?" or "Do you have a personal vendetta?" Balance self-interest with the reasonable concerns of others, while remembering objections are not necessarily reasonable, and agreements are not necessarily possible. Positions can be mutually exclusive. Deal with aggression, conflict, or anger in the most effective and positive manner by addressing it directly, but don't let your temper flare. It can only make things worse.
If you are stressed out and under the gun regarding tasks and responsibilities, do not take it out on others. Think before you act and respond intelligently to inquiries and demands. There is a tendency for everyone to overreact. Handle situations with an eye toward fairness. When you see injustice, become an advocate and defend those in need. Motivate others to direct their efforts into productive endeavors. You can accomplish a lot in a short amount of time, so while you have the energy and a can-do attitude, move ahead quickly.
