Mars Sextile Midheaven

Mars Sextile Midheaven Natal

You have a strong desire to "make it" and achieve acclaim in some sphere. You want others to respect you and like you. Of course, it's possible to have both. But that's only possible if you're motivated for such success by either striving to create a legacy for others to follow and build upon. Or by selfless dedication to a cause, institution, or set of principles larger than yourself. In other words, you're able to achieve the recognition you crave when your work is less about you and what you want and instead more about what you can do with and for others. The more your career aspirations are only about your glory and achievement, the more you'll have to rely on fear rather than respect to get what you want. You'll also be more tempted to rely on guile and deviousness to get others to like you when they'll likely only use you as they expect you to try to use them.      

Mars Sextile Midheaven Transit

You're as willing to help others achieve their goals as you're willing to reach out to be helped. There's a natural reciprocity of mutual benefit that makes it a delight for you and others to work toward your respective career aims. Yet, you're also able to do your part and bring your A-game to the table. One temptation is to feign that you don't have as much ambition and drive as you do. Perhaps you fear you will be denied, so you attempt to conceal your true intentions to move ahead. This will likely backfire spectacularly. Not only won't you get what you want and likely deserve, but you'll also blemish your reputation and trash any trust in you. Your sincerity and clarity of purpose are perhaps all the currency you need to cooperate with others, whether co-workers or superiors, and advance. Your goodwill will inspire others to put more in the pot to everyone's delight and benefit.
