“Sun square Mars The square formed between the Sun and Mars generates assertive and impulsive behavior. Even if you are characterized as a very passive person, this aspect stimulates action when the aspect is set off by transits. You drive yourself hard to achieve your ambitions, and you carry out every task with much enthusiasm and energy. You may display anger and brashness. Sometimes you need to develop patience and forethought to avoid conflicts in your life. This aspect produces much physical energy, but often these energies are spent in a precipitant fashion. When well directed, you can do much in any field you decide to enter. Avoid egocentric tendencies to demand too much personal attention.” http://www.skyscript.co.uk/sunaspects.html#susmo
sun square pluto basically suggests a lack of rapport with father, men, and/or authority figures.
“Sun square or opposition Pluto People born under a challenging aspect between the Sun and Pluto are prone to inner tension and negative, self-destructive behavior. When things are going well, they suffer from fears that something will come along to change that. Their thought patterns can be negative, and if not kept in check, they can seriously undermine their happiness. Constantly worrying that the rug will be pulled from under their feet can easily become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Sun-Pluto have tremendous power and strength—when they learn to accept and use that strength, instead of fear it, they are some of the most effective, insightful, helpful, and healing people around!
One of the most prominent characteristics of these aspects is the tendency to be intensely dissatisfied with their personal accomplishments and expressions of self. These people put a lot of pressure on themselves regarding their own endeavors. A child, for example, with a challenging Sun-Pluto aspect may work hard at a piece of artwork, decide it’s not right, destroy it, and start all over again. This same child will be especially disturbed if they feel people are watching as they create their artwork. This is a simple example, but it’s quite descriptive of the tendency for these people to be dissatisfied with their creative self-expressions, and to want to hide their expressions from others until they feel the output is “right”. This is largely due to a perceived inability to express or reveal their true personalities to others. They experience a simultaneous urge to express themselves and to hide themselves. They struggle with a deep need to control themselves and life itself. Rarely are Sun-Pluto people completely satisfied with themselves. They are especially sensitive to criticism, and feel the need to “redo” themselves often. There is a marked fear of losing control, and this might stem from some traumatic event in childhood, or the childhood might have been crisis-ridden or emotionally-charged in general. As such, these people are often intensely fearful of, or threatened by, change. This can express itself through attempts to control their lives such that they can manage their fears of being taken off guard. Of course, this generally backfires!
Another characteristic of these aspects is an intense need for privacy. They fear being exposed or invaded. Again, this is an expression of their dissatisfaction with the self they are projecting, and they are generally uncomfortable with their evolving ego. They seem to undergo many identity crises, and they feel the need to control what others know about them and think about them. Their fear of exposing themselves might cause them problems with others, who may begin to mistrust them, presuming that if they are so protective of their privacy, they must have something sinister to hide. The truth is, they struggle with a dissatisfaction with themselves and their fear of being exposed is really about a fear of being vulnerable, as well as a manifestation of their own identity crisis.
These people are quick to read between the lines. They need to be careful, however, to avoid reading negative or dark things into situations or people. They need to know that if their tendency is to hunt for dark “truths” rather than unbiased truths, this is a self-destructive behavior that stems from fear. Many people with these aspects are overly attached to things, habits, people, and their past. At the root of this is an intense fear of change that would threaten to make them vulnerable. Still, Pluto’s goal is to transform through change. Inevitably, Sun-Pluto people will have to face their fear of change and accept that they need change in order to grow.
We all have a dark, irrational side, but people with Sun-Pluto in hard aspect are forced to confront it and integrate it into their personalities. It can be a challenging process, especially because the Sun rules all that is “light” – the rational, conscious mind. The Sun is noble and righteous by nature. Aligned with Pluto, it can have a hard time accepting the darker, intense, and often irrational Pluto energies into one cohesive whole. This is the challenge that Sun-Pluto face. If these people find themselves using manipulative tactics to get their way, or attempting to control others through subversive tactics, it is a clear cue that they are mishandling Pluto energies. It is a powerful indication that their self-image is low. There is little satisfaction derived from getting our way through manipulation. It only serves to make us feel less effective in the long run and on a personal level. If I were to win a favor by using subversive tactics, what will it prove to me? It will reinforce my feeling that I am not effective just by being myself. And, effectiveness is something Sun-Pluto craves.
Especially with the opposition, these people might attract manipulative, possessive, or jealous people into their lives. With the square, there is more of a tendency to attract dangerous or upsetting situations in the life. Either way, these people need to get in touch with the reason why they are attracting these people and situations. In all likelihood, they are not handling their own fears effectively, and they feel they are not in control of their lives, and a looping pattern is thereby created. They eventually come to realize that they are very strong people with enormous resilience. They need to identify with, face, and accept their “dark” side. Self-acceptance is the key to handling this aspect. Channeling Pluto energy into constructive channels is also important.“ http://www.cafeastrology.com/natal/sunplutoaspects.html
Typically I would look for a tighter orb to call it a T-Square, but since the apex planet is Sun and it involves cardinal signs, this formation must be pretty active and causing a lot of trouble to the native, especially in her romantic life. The fourth missing wheel should be in the 5th house, and with the moon so nearby, the native must be suffering some serious frustrations with potential partners but also with children and generally satisfying her emotional needs. She makes a very playful and caring mom. (Actually it would be interesting to hear how she feels about having a baby and if she has children, how it changed her life. It could be a major stabilizing force for her.)
Sun is here the driving force, but also under a lot of pressure. Major issue here are anger and impulsiveness. Not getting stuck up on anger and unresolved issues, but solving them and moving quickly forward is the key for maintaining sanity. Otherwise relationship and financial issues just pile up and bring possibly even a self-destructive behavior. Lack accomplishments and tangible, material expressions of identity are difficult to accept for her (apex Sun in Capricorn).
“Planets in Cardinal signs need to take immediate action. They do not like to be told to wait, and they will do their own thing rather than wait to be lead by someone else. The Cardinal T-Square is by far the most active of the T-Squares, but it is not necessarily the most productive. The challenge with this pattern is to get the three planets to work together rather than each going off and doing their own thing (which inevitably conflicts with what the other two planets want to be doing). The hardest part is learning to control the impulsiveness of the Cardinal planets long enough to get them to work together.”
This is interesting too: “A T-Square forms a right triangle, and in sacred geometry, right triangles operate on the level of what the Greeks called “nous” which is the realm of the spirit and of the higher self and higher guidance. Because it is also an isosceles triangle, T-Squares also operate on the mental/emotional level (what the Greeks called the “soul” level) and therefore can be quite challenging and stressful configurations. The key to working with a T-Square is to learn how to tap into the higher levels of guidance and to discover different and more supportive ways of releasing the stress and pressure of the squares through taking action with the apex planet.” by Kevin T.

T Square http://www.drstandley.com/astrologychartstsquare.shtml “Two planets in opposition squared to a third. The tension typical of the opposition aspect is aggravated by additional problems introduced by the third planet. Often an obstructive feature blocking the normal flow of behaviour of the person. Person needs to develop activities represented by the “missing” arm of the T-square to achieve wholeness” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natalastrology#Aspect_patterns http://www.skyscript.co.uk/aspects2.html
“The t-square is exactly like the above configuration except that one of the signs is missing. Time and again this is described as trying to sit in a chair with three legs. Ironically, the individual becomes the fourth leg by acting out the traits which are missing in the chart.” http://www.skyviewzone.com/astrology/moreaspects2.htm
what tends to happen with T Squares is that a transit, progression or solar arc comes along and temporary converts it to a Grand Square, which does cause enormous tensions/problems internally, but the good thing is the get you up off your backside to resolve issues.
mars opp pluto really needs to be doing something physical, likes sports, martial arts, mountian climbing, bungjee jumping the riskier the better and the mars energy reall needs an outlet. Sometimes this ‘can’ attract or give out violence at some point.
“Mars opposition Pluto The opposition between Mars and Pluto shows a defiant attitude. Sometimes there is a lack of control over aggressive tendencies. You can alienate some people as you assert your rights, or what you believe to be your rights. You must evaluate the positive and negative aspects of any idea or plan. Always consider the values of compromise before taking any action. Both Mars and Pluto are associated with sexual drive since these two planets are the co-rulers of Scorpio. With this aspect in opposition your sexual drive will be strongly affected and in some conflict. You may be led to form extremely strong alliances, but it may as easily cause severe rifts in relationships. The drive may be to gain power over others. It is certain that you will encounter problems in your personal affairs. ” http://www.skyscript.co.uk/marsaspects.html#maopl
