Mars in Scorpio: For those moments in life when you want to do the genocide playthrough 😈
To say Mars in Scorpio has a volcanic temper would be an understatement – any Hadean* Mars is super potent, but the murderous rage unleashed by this placement is fully capable of making the Showdown at House of Blue Leaves chapter in Kill Bill look “cute”.
Rather than resort to violence, though, this placement is arguably most effective at psychological warfare. It doesn’t even *need* to get physical; it’s a freaking ninja at psyching an opponent out. For Mars in Scorpio, sometimes just the insinuation of what it will do to you should you rouse its favorite vice (that would be Wrath BTW, in case you haven’t already figured this out) is more powerful than actually unsheathing its blade.
Although that’s not to say one might not occasionally be compelled to do so just to remind people they’re not screwing around…😉
*Footnote: For the purposes of this post, a Hadean Mars is construed to mean Mars in Scorpio, Mars in aspect to Pluto, or Mars located in the 8th House.
