What aspects would make a person appear intimidating
I've sometimes been told by people (especially men) that I intimidated them. Though once they get to know me later they realise I'm a friendly person.
Interested what aspects would make a person seem intimidating or unapproachable.
What does your birth chart look like. What is your Sun? Mars? What aspects do you have that would make you seem to come off that way?
Some Suns come off as more intense as others as do Mars. Mars in Scorpio for example is pretty intense...
What does your Mercury look like...what sign is it in? Do you have aspects to your Sun, Mars, Merc?
Some people think I'm intimidating. Pluto square Ascendant or 10th house Saturn....not sure which or could be both.
Leo Sun, Scorpio Mars, Mercury Virgo.
No aspects between them.
I have Sun (leo 7th) square Saturn (Scorpio 8th)
Moon (Capricorn 12th) square Pluto (Libra 8th).
Mercury (Virgo 7th) square Uranus (Sagittarius 10th).
Pluto (libra 8th) square Ascendant (Aquarius)
Saturn (Scorpio 8th) square Ascendant (Aquarius)
I don't know much about Saturn in 10th Tam.
I have Pluto square Ascendant too. Think it definitely does intimidate people.
I'd say Pluto/ Scorpio and Saturn/ Capricorn/ Aquarius (both are ruled by Saturn) are the main intimidating influences.
So your Ascendant is no doubt the reason why people say that to you. Aquarius ascendant with Saturn and Pluto squaring is an incredibly cold, harsh combination. As much as Aquarius is geared towards people (and especially for you with that 7th House Sun) they do it in a very impersonal, almost robotic way. There's not a lot of heart there (initially). And there can be a touch of intellectual snobbishness with some Aquarius risings that can make people feel inferior and intimidated.
So yeah, maybe just be more emotionally open and vulnerable with people (which I realise won't be easy with your Capricorn Moon!!) and you'll probably find they soften towards you- unless you like being intimidating in which case keep doing what your doing! lol
