Mars Sextile Pluto Transit

Mars sextile Pluto can be a hugely beneficial aspect when it comes to reaching specific goals. You are likely to have the drive and stamina to achieve what needs to be done. There may be an element of tearing down and starting from scratch on previous attempts to achieve these goals.

Mars is related to energy, pure and simple. Mars is associated with courage, daring, drive, ambition, anger, and libido. Mars is fast-moving and can be reckless.

Pluto is associated with power plays, unearthing the hidden, sexuality, intensity, and crisis. Pluto can tear things down so that they can be rebuilt better. There is often a phoenix rising from the flames vibe with Pluto.

Planets are sextile when they are 60° apart (usually 2 signs away from each other). When looking at transits (as opposed to natal astrology), we typically allow an orb (allowance) of 1°, so planets that are 59° to 61° degrees apart are considered sextile.

A sextile is a harmonious or easy aspect that has a helpful quality to it. Sextiles can be useful when it comes to making necessary changes as things tend to work smoother with sextiles.
