I was talking to a pal who copped to being what she called “game-y” in relationships when she was younger. She described how she manipulated men by coming on strong and then backing off to keep their energy on her. She’d have them obsessing trying to figure out what she was up to. I was completely enthralled listening to her because I am the polar opposite of this. No man ever has to wonder where he stands with me.
I have Mars is conjunct Mercury in the (blunt) 9th house, so there you go. But my friend has an Aquarius Mars in the 8th house and this is one way to express it.
Aquarius is detached. Mars wants to get what it wants and the 8th house is up to speed when it comes to psychological games. It’s like an experiment in seduction.
Where is your Mars?
