Mars square Neptune

Mars square Neptune is a challenging position, as you have difficulty trusting in your ability to go after things that you want in a direct manner. It may also be that you have difficulty pinpointing what it is that you want, or that part of you doesn’t feel you deserve it due to a basic lack of self-confidence. You fear rejection as well as criticism, and often use roundabout means to go after what you want. Your imagination is so powerful that it can be hard to trust your instincts. You easily imagine things going wrong, just as you easily fantasize about good things! Your desire nature is strong yet also very suggestible. You’re attracted to mysteries and intrigue. Sexual experimentation is likely, as you are forever addicted to sensuality and unusual or perhaps even what many would consider perverted sexual scenarios. However, your sensual appetite might be much like a bottomless pit, and you could find yourself forever in a state of wanting more, tiring of regular sexual scenarios quickly, and endlessly searching for the next sensation. If an addiction to fantasy is present, you can find yourself constantly chasing a new and more complicated fantasy. It is only when you get into touch with your heart and discover your true desires that you realize that sensations are merely sensations–not deeply satisfying or fulfilling.

Mars square Neptune

Fears of sexual inadequacy can be great with Mars square Neptune position, and you may either deny yourself as a result, or overcompensate, seeking out experiences in which you are pretty much assured positive feedback. Some of you will experience both of these extremes in your lifetime. I have a client with this position who has a “trophy” wife, and she often denies him, and even belittles him, on a sexual level. He accepts this but “gets her back” behind her back, having serial affairs with women who are not considered as attractive for whatever reason and with whom he attempts to reclaim his power. One of the interesting things about this position is that if you are involved in immoral activities, guilt has a way of cropping up in unusual ways, and could lead you on a self-destructive path–and you might even know that you’re heading that way, yet you compulsively follow that path. Part of you might want to get caught! You might, for example, know in your mind that doing something is risky, yet you compulsively do it anyhow, perhaps even finding the challenge invigorating.

Although you can be very creative at keeping your motives and personal agenda hidden–in fact, many of you seem on the surface of things to be quite gentle and yielding–you might eventually become resentful if you feel the need to resort to sneakiness in order to get what you want out of life. This is one of the things that has struck me as the most common characteristics of Mars square Neptune people. It’s not that they don’t get angry or show that anger. However, many will give in to another’s desires more often than not, yet become resentful of that person who seems to have control over them. Some will give up their power to a partner, for example, often taking the role as the one who gives in or gives up things in order to make the other happy. However, resentment for this builds, and while people with harmonious Mars-Neptune aspects more easily yield to others without anger for doing so, those with Mars square Neptune aspect are more likely to feel stepped upon, and to retaliate in covert ways. If you do feel resentment for giving up your power to someone else, learn to avoid giving it up unless you truly understand that you are doing it for yourself, and not for someone else. Resentments have a way of building and distorting themselves into ugly matter if you don’t deal with them properly and directly. You are often passive-aggressive in your approach to others, and this can cause a lot of problems in your life.

With Mars square Neptune, you are usually found chasing a dream… or a fantasy. The former is probably the better path. Somehow, others are bound to eventually sense that you are not to be trusted, and this is often for good reason! You may not like to admit this to yourself, as you may have built excuses for your deceptive or sneaky behaviour. However, adopting a more direct and assertive approach to life is something that you should be working towards. You will need to get over your feelings of guilt when you do adopt this approach. Learning to take responsibility for your actions, and to avoid blaming others for failures, is important. At your worst, you can be disorganized in your approach to life, easily procrastinating and lacking follow-through when you do begin a task. Some of the most important lessons you need to learn in life are self-control, self-assertion, and trust in yourself. At your best, you are a creative person with a powerful imagination and great stores of compassion.

Mars square Neptune can experience many extremes in their sexual relationships

Mars square Neptune is indeed a challenging position, as you have difficulty trusting in your ability to go after things that you want in a direct manner. It may also be that you have difficulty pinpointing what it is that you want, or that part of you doesn't feel you deserve it due to a basic lack of self-confidence. You fear rejection as well as criticism, and often use roundabout means to go after what you want. Your imagination is so powerful that it can be hard to trust your instincts. You easily imagine things going wrong, just as you easily fantasize about good things! Your desire nature is strong yet also very suggestible. You're attracted to mysteries and intrigue. Sexual experimentation is likely, as you are forever addicted to sensuality and unusual or perhaps even what many would consider perverted sexual scenarios. However, your sensual appetite might be much like a bottomless pit, and you could find yourself forever in a state of wanting more, tiring of regular sexual scenarios quickly, and endlessly searching for the next sensation. If an addiction to fantasy is present, you can find yourself constantly chasing a new and more complicated fantasy. It is only when you get into touch with your heart and discover your true desires that you realize that sensations are merely sensations--not deeply satisfying or fulfilling. Your attempts to assert yourself often result in turmoil for you and/or for others. You tend to swing from one extreme to the other–asserting your needs powerfully at times and at others slipping into a state of total apathy. Passive-aggressiveness can be a problem in your life. Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to you and you must have something that stirs your imagination, some vision or ideal or dream to motivate you. You have a strong urge to act out your fantasies or to live your dream, and you will DO things that others only talk about or dream about. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which you can express yourself imaginatively are excellent for you. You tend to either overestimate or underestimate your own power and abilities.

With Mars square Neptune, you may lead a somewhat sexually repressed life although your sexual needs are significant. You could suffer from anxieties regarding your sexuality (probably carried over from parental conditioning around sex) and therefore find it difficult to find satisfaction in this area. However, this tends to change as you mature. As you overcome the urge to indulge in momentary physical pleasures, you build the capacity for spiritual ecstasy. You may be attracted to persons who are unavailable, perhaps because they are already married or simply hard to reach. Sometimes you find it more convenient to see your lover as you wish her to be rather than as she really is. You may find that you lower your standards when choosing a lover and end up with someone who is interested in you primarily for sex, or that the relationship is largely unfulfilling. Disappointments in love may be frequent, although this is also something that improves with age! You are an extremely imaginative lover, and you frequently engage in fanciful and intricate fantasies. This may sometimes interfere with “real life”, but if you channel this energy well, it can most certainly improve your sex life. Your imagination is powerful, but it can also get the best of you. You may imagine complex scenarios and get yourself all riled up about what your partner may have done to you when you were in the moment.

Mars square Neptune brings bravery and glamour but also intrigue and scandal. You must express your strong desires by fighting for some worthy cause. And you do it through your actions. Traditional public standards do not bind your passions; hence there is sometimes scandal, yet you draw on a strong faith to march into battle. Discouragement is something you do have to fight. After a loss or disappointment, it is important not to be hard on yourself. But don’t blame someone either. Wait until you calm down, then think rationally about why things did not turn out as you had hoped. It is possible there was a misunderstanding or that you simply imagined a different outcome. Talking about people behind their backs must be avoided. This aspect can create suspicion already, so you must make an extra effort, to be honest, and appear honest. Stay far away from gossip, lies, deceit, and treachery. It is also very important to have faith in yourself. When you feel scared, weak, and vulnerable, it is critically important to trust that things will be okay. I know this is easier said than done, and it will take practice. You have to learn self-confidence. That will give you the courage to stand your ground and not be the victim.

You sometimes might fantasize like you're a secret agent who's readying for their special mission. In many ways, you're making that fantasy a reality, though it's sometimes difficult for you to find the real-world ways that this exists. You live for the idea of helping those in need or serving something greater than yourself. It prompts you to feel special by doing something special for others. Yet, when things don't turn out as magically as you dreamed, you're crestfallen, and your bright fantasies of being a caped crusader turn into dark scenarios where you can score your revenge. Or you slink away into something else that makes you feel good about yourself, like video games, drugs, or sex. But what makes the work you do special isn't about someone or something else outside yourself. The sacredness of your mission is blessed by your own sincerity and willingness to be of service. Tap clearly into that, and you have all the magic you need.

Mars square Neptune people have unusual habits and emotional needs that are arising from their unconsciousness. In case they’re repressing their urges, they can end up suffering from sexual and psychosomatic crises, hallucinations being as well possible. When expressing their desires, they can end up abusing drugs, sex, and even food. If feeling like their sexuality is bothering them, they should try performing in the arts. Those born under the Mars square Neptune aspect can become involved in dangerous situations, so they should avoid performing any psychic activity. They’re self-deceptive and not quite aware of their motivations, the ones related to the House of Neptune. Not so good with money, these people are as well deceitful, not sincere and traitors, especially if there are many other strongly afflicted planets and aspects in their birth chart. They seem to chase problems everywhere they’re going, not to mention they can easily develop allergies to drugs, get sick with food poisoning or other health issues. Too weak when it comes to pain and suffering, they can take more action to prevent hypersensitivity. They should learn what honesty means and be sincere with themselves, to begin with and work their imagination as much as possible.

Their mind is so strong that it can be difficult for them to work with their instincts any more. They’re sometimes imagining everything’s wrong around them, but they’re also fantasizing about goodness with the same intensity. Their desires are usually strong and auto-imposing. Mystery and intrigue are what matter to them the most. It’s very likely for them to experiment from a sexual point of view because they’re sensual and strange, but some people may see them as perverted. Their libido can be endless and they can find themselves in a state of persistent desire, getting easily tired of the same sexual routine and chasing sensations. If addicted to some kind of fantasy, they can exaggerate and look all over the place for new ones. Only after getting in touch with what’s in their heart and discovering their true wishes, they’ll realize their sensations are only sensations, and not something that’s profoundly fulfilling. Having fears that they may not be proper from a sexual point of view, they’re denying themselves and for this reason, they’re looking to compensate what they’re missing on by doing things they’re truly sure about. Some people born during the Mars square Neptune can experience many extremes. They like to tease and to enjoy pleasure after they’ve waited for some time to experience it. For this reason, they may flirt too much, even if married. What’s interesting about this placement is that if they’re doing something immoral, their guilt can cut them in many little pieces, so they can end up destroying themselves, as well they can realize they’re doing this most compulsively. While knowing they’re doing something risky, they can keep continue doing it because any challenge is making them feel alive. They need to fight feeling discouraged because loss and too many disappointments are only making them stronger. But they shouldn’t blame anyone and wait until they’re calm enough to think in a rational way about why some things are not turning out the way they hoped to. It’s very likely for them to be misunderstood because they’ve perhaps imagined different outcomes. When talking about others behind their back, they should try and refrain themselves from doing it. This is an aspect that’s bringing about many suspicions, so people should make many efforts in order to be honest. They should avoid gossip, lies, and deceptions. They need to have faith in themselves. When feeling scared and vulnerable, they must trust everything’s going to be okay. Self-confidence is very important for them.

Constantly dissatisfied with himself and others, irritable, unstable, lunatic; can be dangerous or intoxicated by narcotics
