The Mars square North Node synastry aspect means that the couple knew each other in a past life, but they skipped the issues that they were supposed to address. In this life, they will be forced to address the problems between them in a more harsh and constant way.
When the Mars square North Node synastry couple first meets, they may feel intrigued by each other. They want to know more about each other, but there is also a rough energy between them and a sense of friction. This is usually what creates the attraction.
The couple perpetuated a war between them in a past life, and this energy still exists now. The relationship can be filled with power struggles, aggression, and anger.
Sometimes, Mars square North Node means that the couple is always competing against each other instead of being on the same side. They may try to one-up each other, win fights, or control each other. This dynamic simply feels natural because of the energy between them from their past life.

Over time, the Mars person may want to impress the Nodal person or somehow work things out, but their efforts are in vain. Typically, the Mars person fails to see what the Nodal person really needs to evolve, so they give them all of the wrong things. For example, Mars may buy the Nodal person gifts instead of attempting to connect emotionally.
The Mars conjunct North Node synastry relationship can work if both people are willing to put the effort in. The Mars person must learn how to focus on themselves and build their own self-confidence without resorting to aggressive, competition, or games. They must stop trying to win the love of the Nodal person and start to realize that the Nodal person must choose to love them.
Meanwhile, the Nodal person must let go of their need to win against the Mars person. They are usually the ones who “lost” to Mars in a past lifetime, so now they may be obsessed with winning to try and even the scales. Over time, they will realize that this game of competition doesn’t truly change the energy.
The Nodal person must learn how to win for themselves, not against someone else. They must forgive their partner for past hurts and learn how to be on the same side as a couple.
Ultimately, the Mars square North Node synastry aspect means that there is an issue of competition in the relationship. The couple must learn to compete against themselves to be a better version of their soul, and to be united as a couple.
