    enjoying your articles…always food for thought. What orbs would you allow for this aspect? My Mars is exactly 6 degrees from the DC but I can identify to some extent with much of what you have said.

    • Hi andy mack,

      Because the angles are not planetary bodies their accuracy depends on the accuracy of your birth time. If your birth time is accurate then 6 degrees is good for a conjunction. For me, I would use up to 10 degrees for planets conjunct an angle.

      • andy mack

        Thanks for that. My birth time is accurate so the aspect is well within the orb you allow. Good to know. Thanks again!

  • 如果有一天,我潇洒死去,请记得,我来过这里!

  • I like your sharing and enjoyed reading this article about the effect of Mars in Life. Most off effects are not good as it makes person aggressive and increases lot of difficulties in life.

  • Chijiru .

    Great article.
    Mars seems so exhausting. 😮

  • Diane

    Thank you for this article! Does it work for people with Aries on the descendant as well?

    • Yes, I think there can be some overlap in meaning. Thank you for reading, Diane.
