The planet Mars is considered to be in it's detriment in Libra, as Mars rules Aries (& Scorpio), the sign opposite Libra. So Mars is out of it's element, so to speak, and somewhat predisposed to cause problems when placed in Libra.
The actual chart for the ingress of Mars into Libra cast for Denver, CO. reflects the potential for explosive violence and hardship. Uranus (in Aries) was conjunct the Midheaven (most public point) and square a partile (in same degree) Moon-Pluto conjunction (8 Capricorn). As the Moon rules the Ascendant (Cancer), it's contact with Pluto and Uranus is particularly relevant to this location (Denver).
