Mars Square Neptune 26 August 2016

Mars Square Neptune TransitMars square Neptune in the natal chart brings bravery and glamour but also intrigue and scandal. You simply have to express your strong desires by fighting for some worthy cause, you do it through your actions. Your passions are not bound by traditional public standards hence there is sometimes scandal, yet you draw on a very strong faith to march on into battle.

Mars Square Neptune Transit

Transiting Mars square Neptune brings low energy, suspicion, deceit, lies and scandal. The test or challenge of the square may come from within or through interactions with others.

It is normal to feel weak and discouraged under this influence. Guilt is also possible and you may recall hurting someone in the past. It is important not to let such negative feelings lead to self defeat or even self harm.

Yes, you must recognize and admit to yourself any uncomfortable things but work through them or seek professional help. You are low on energy and recuperative powers so it is critical that you confront things and then move on.

Other possible scenarios come through relationships with others. There is a tendency to be suspicious and paranoid, jealous or vindictive. You must avoid the temptation to act against others due to such confused motivations. Even if there is some truth to the rumors or suspicions, treachery, deceitful or subversive actions will most likely come back to bite you on the ass.

On the other hand, you may be the victim of gossip, scandal, slander or deceit. Be wary of offers that seem to good to be true. This especially applies to matters of the heart because your Mars passionate desires are not accurately reflecting the reality of the situation. This is not the time to be making the first move either.

Don’t let your fears or imagination get the better of you. Do not take on any extra work or new projects. Mind your own business and use up this confusing energy in creative projects that require inspiration and imagination, not sustained physical effort.

Although hypochondria is possible now, your immune defences may also be low. Best to get any symptoms checked out just to be safe.

  1. Important for me with this sesquiquadrate (<), to step out being heroic!

    (I feel deeply tired!).

    Wonderful day this day!

    Thankyou, as always, Jamie!

    Rocío.

  2. Great article!

    I’ve read that Mars square Neptune is the Sorcerer’s Apprentice!

    NAMASTE!

  3. I am one of those Aprendiz de Brujo. I do my will and end crying. Though, I do not seem to understand -thus not always follow- God´s Will (seem to be blind, just like th gravatar I had, with dark lenses).

    Not easy for me to see and to be open. Always tight ti the past. Though, changing (Gott Sei Dank!).

    Rocío.

  4. I like the way you exlore this aspect in the post. I have this, as if Mars in Pisces wasn’t enough, but it’s a wide square. What orbs do you use for this, Jamie?

  5. Aha, ok, mine is wider still, 8 degrees. I’d call it a background influence really; but a look at my relationships with men and how it’s a big deal for me to keep my energy focused would convince anyone that I do need to take it into account. Definitely gets better when one is committed to a spiritual path; still, it’s not one of the ‘easy’ ones…

  6. OMG!

    I have had all reasons to fight for the poor, the children, the vulnerable. Maybe, it´s time to row for me.

    I have been so, sooo, right. I am more ready to accept. Maybe I am right, now (maybe not so right, then).

    I see myself so much in the Yo Soy#132. I was rigid like they are. I wanted to change the world. I would be critic. I would work so much. I would find the black bean in the whole wite rice.

    They are almost alone (like a feel now… yes! the day Jamie!). So lonely, looding friends and supporters. They do not agree with anything! They just don´t want it the way it is.

    Yesterday night, at the meeting, I saw this with so much clarity! Some acquaintances and I just walked away… really. I know what a victim is and do not feel like playing once again the same roll.

    Oh, God, do I feel tired!

    Maybe, for once, ready to commit with construction. Not with destruction, as I did all my life!

    Rocío.

    Rocío.

  7. I have mars 12 cancer H12 square neptune16 libra H4- by 3 degrees

    Uranus is conjunct mars 10 cancer- but I think orb is too wide for uranus square neppy

    I have always been ‘chameleon like’ in my appearance & can easily morph into different ‘looks’

    GG

  8. Does that mean Mars is square Neptune now? Wasn’t Venus conjunct or sth?? Mars is my spouse indicator in Indian astrology, and it has some afflictions in my chart, but lot of afflictions on Mercury, lord of my Indian scope ascendant and in partner house 7th with Venus. To me, men are from Venus and women are from Mars. I’m a contra character. My latest book links Neandertal to Native American language, and traces Neandertal language heritage across Eurasia via new look at gendered language, and how tonal agglutinative languages evolved and created massive conflicts. See http://www.weinternational.co.nz for articles. Druidess. I also put up a new understanding of Maya writing for 2012, it has a facebook page. ‘Maya phonetic writing’. By the way, thanks for fixed star chart, it’s a new era in understanding for me, slowly researching the stars. In my Indian astrology, I’m in a phase starting around age 50 of finally fulfilling my life’s goals and dreams over these six years since a year or two ago. It seems to be happening, including Mars / spouse, I hope. Secret. Now Saturn’s in Scorpio, wow! Sun’s on my ascendant. I feel it’s a very special time. And the elections, everything happening… Gods bless us to make the most of this time in the world!!

  9. You CANNOT blame Henry the 8th ‘s personality entirely on his health. Very odd , especially on an astrology website !!!!!

  10. I have natal mars square neptune exact, fixed, first house mars Leo, 4th neptune scorpio. People get wrong impressions of me and I don’t know about it. I suspect, but never really know. I come across poorly sometimes. I am spiritually motivated, play cello, have nice hair,and multiple sclerosis.

    • You put this aspect very well Marge. I have Mars square Neptune but at 5 degrees orb. I also have health problems affecting iron in blood, nerves and muscles.

      Most astrologers, even me look at the psychological side of things today. But I totally disagree with this hippie belief among psychological astrologers than behavior and psychology are to blame for health problems. Health problems affect our behavior beyond doubt.

  11. I have this one one too, natally. Mars in Aries in 4th square CAp neptune in 1st, mars squaring also my cancer moon in 7th. Both sqares are within 3 orb. So I also have moon opposing neptune. It’s a tough triangle, but I have to say I personaly feel mars to moon square more then this one..

  12. my dob April 11th 1986, 1:10am india, going through problem in job n marriage. how will rest of year be.

    • The problem for the lat year has been the last two lunar eclipses at 4 Aries and 4 Libra square your Mars Neptune conjunction at 5 Capricorn.

      Better times ahead, especially for marriage with September 1 solar eclipse trine your Moon Venus conjunction.
