Retrograde Mars in Scorpio

Hi,

I'm having a hard time understanding this particular placement. I know a Mars retrograde person typically has a hard time being assertive and tends to not be as open about how they feel, but from what I read about Mars in Scorpio, they also tend to be secretive about things and not display much either. How would these two energies work together? My natal chart is also attached below.

Someone that doesn't display aggressiveness but internally is really emotional and driven. That would be the result. Difficulty showing anger outwards but being all about it internally. Finding strength from internal stimuli.

Re: Retrograde Mars in Scorpio

Mars in Retrograde tends to manifest very differently in men and women. Obviously I don't want to limit it to a binary, but from what I've observed and studied, there are definite trends:

- Men with Mars in Retrograde tend to have been raised to not show their anger, which can lead to repression/blowups if not handled well. They tend to go for more dominant partners, and don't like confrontation.

- Women with Mars in Retrograde tend to not project their Mars as much as Women without it. In other words, they tend to own their Mars, and often like to be in control of their relationships.

I felt that. But mine isn't retrograde, but def felt that. It's also conjunct Moon and Pluto is our generational for us mid 80s/90s babies.

I call my aggression when I'm angry "legal aggression." Breaking laws is something that people simply do that don't have the patience to get what they want often times or know how. Instant gratification.

Follow the law. I often tell people two things when I get mad:

1. I won't break the law (good news).
2. That isn't going to help "control my behavior" very much, prevent me from succeeding at what you don't want me to succeed at, or prevent what you don't want to happen (within reason). (bad news).
2.5 Don't need to break laws to neutralize a problem. #Patience #GunsNRoses #DeliberateOffset
