Both Sun and Mars are fierce planets; representing aggression, self-confidence, and action. Sun and Mars conjunction is powerful, and if it is positive, it can make the person fearless, self-assured, strong, vigorous, determined, ambitious, and a good-spirited person. Such a person is also short-tempered, reckless, argumentative and prone to telling lies. They tend to be inimical towards family and devoid of worldly comforts, but they love their siblings a lot. This is a great combination for professions such as military, sports and armed forces.
This conjunction is not termed favorable in Kendra as it is destructive, especially if under malefic influence. This could be a wonderful combination if placed in 10th house as the person becomes a leader and good decision-maker. However, if the native is an employer, he or she can be too demanding and dictatorial in nature. If the conjunction is afflicted, the native may turn out to be self-centered, aggressive, and even violent at times.
