I'm really confused about Mars' role in transits. I am currently looking at my natal chart during past events in my life, and I've noticed that every time in childhood that my parents changed residences, which was quite a few, Mars was in a close conjunction to my Midheaven in Scorpio. Could this have been the transition that prompted such a change in residence?
One of my students in the Chart Interpretation Forum explored the idea that Mae West's chart seemed to point to a career in politics. West's chart suggests a tremendous amount of charisma and a need to express her individuality in a very big, extroverted way. And when you also include West's Mars in Aquarius in the 10th house, which seeks to take humanitarian action in a very pubic arena (and which is also heavily involved in West's identity and personality), it does indeed suggest an inclination towards public service. Whether that career in politics would be distinguished or successful is another matter entirely. West's strong personality also carries a strong 12th house emphasis, which brings up self-sabotage and hidden enemies; plus, her Mars is retrograde, which suggests resistance and backlash surrounding her public actions. On reflection, this describes a typical career in politics, including the scandals and public humiliation.
Everything about this interpretation was astrologically sound and well argued. There was just one problem: it was virtually impossible.
