Mars Conjunct Ascendant in Medical Astrology

You have a strong desire to express yourself and a great deal of dynamic energy. You can overexert yourself at times. When you feel frustrated or thwarted, you can become more heated. At times you need to express your anger, but you may have a fiery temper that can be difficult to manage. Generally these outbursts, when they occur, are short lived. But if they start to happen frequently, or lead to destructive behaviour, you may need to find a new way to express this part of yourself. You are highly competitive, so channelling your energy into physical challenges could be the answer. However, be aware that high-risk activity can sometimes lead to accidents if you rush in too aggressively.

Having a strong Mars means you have a dynamic and energetic physical energy. You prefer direct action; you like to get on with things and you like to get your own way. Initially, when you experience delays or obstacles, you can be prone to outbursts of temper, headaches, high blood pressure or cardiovascular problems, particularly if you anger easily. As you mature you will realise that challenges come along in order that we develop other qualities, such as patience and the ability to remain calm in a crisis.

It is probably a good idea to limit your intake of alcohol and not eat too many spicy foods. Ensure you get enough minerals in your diet, especially Iron, Folic Acid, and Vitamin B12, particularly when you are under stress. Your body can become depleted of iron, or you may experience adrenal exhaustion if you push yourself too far. Wearing the gem bloodstone can assist to purify the blood.

You use a great deal of energy and are very productive, but you do need to replace your energy and watch that it does not become destructive.
