Neptune Transits to Natal Mars

Neptune Transits to Natal Mars

By Corinne Lane     3 Comments

When Neptune transits your natal Mars, it is not a time to advance or your own interests or desires. Your ego surrenders to higher purposes. It is difficult to succeed and establish your individuality without taking into account that of others. You do not feel very competitive, or wanting to start new challenging projects.

It’s a good time for sharing with others, achieving spiritual goals, and performing great humanitarian acts. During these transits, you must continuously ask yourself if your actions are realistic for the purposes you want to achieve.

The difficult Neptune-Mars transits increase the likelihood of dishonesty and secrecy. There may also be a crisis of self-confidence, accompanied by uncertainty when putting wishes into action. There can be defeatist tendencies or hopelessness, in addition to weakening the body. There can be fatigue, lack of energy or many exhausting or sacrificial efforts. Therefore, you must take care of your health.

Transit Neptune Conjunct Natal Mars

When transit Neptune is conjunct your natal Mars, vital energy is low and you have a tendency to be easily discouraged. So, it is not a good time to take the initiative, start advancing your own interests or establishing your individuality. You will not have enough drive to continue. Doing things to get ahead now may provoke secret opposition from others. Since this is not a good transit for advancement, don’t do things to win, but rather do what you love. Do things because you enjoy doing them. Try not to worry about the results.

Another possible downside now is the tendency to engage in secret, dishonest or subversive activities. You may not realize the dishonesty, but if you do, stay away from such activity. Don’t count on it working out for your benefit, things are likely to not go as planned.

There is a tendency to bodily weaknesses and infections, so take extra care of your health. You may feel more tired now, so make sure to get enough sleep and rest. Avoid drugs because the body is more sensitive than ever. Any therapy at this time will have a greater effect, as well as any form of meditation. Psychotherapy can have an especially powerful effect on the physical body. For rough or aggressive people, this transit helps to soften the performance and helps bring about body sensitivity.

Transit Neptune Trine Natal Mars, or Transit Neptune Sextile Natal Mars

Transiting Neptune trine, or sextile, to your natal Mars is a time in which your life serves higher principles and goals, and is not focused on your own advancement. Your energy is directed at serving others. This transit calms the desires of your ego. You don’t care about getting what you want or being successful. You’re more concerned that your life serves a higher purpose.

You now express your individuality in ways that help others. You want to do charitable work, or help those with disabilities. This transit favors spiritual or mystical work, in which you can help improve the lives of others.

Don’t worry that you will be unsatisfied. You will feel satisfied after working with others, when you find that their needs and desires are not so different from your own. Even if the common ground is small, working with others towards a higher common purpose will give you a fulfillment that you could not find if you were working only for your own advancement. You realize that many times you have done things that had no meaning for you, things you did only for others, and it made you feel better about yourself.

Increased understanding of spiritual truths and empathy. You will discover a metaphysical side in your consciousness that you were previously unaware of. You easily intuit others. You’re aware of their ins and outs and mistakes. You understand them and accept their flaws. You find a higher truth and discover how your individual identity fits into the universe. The small bubble of your own individuality now expands greatly.

Transit Neptune Square Natal Mars

This description applies for any of these transits:

Transiting Neptune square your natal Mars tests your willpower. It challenges the validity of what you do and your effectiveness. You can’t rely on others now. You’re forced to rely on your inner resources and self-confidence. Depending on your character and what you’re already used to, this can be quite difficult.

Don’t get involved in doubtful schemes or unrealistic projects. Avoid dealings with any dishonest or corrupt person, for you’re likely to be the one to lose. Situations can turn dangerous. Or you may simply end up doing work without any gains, not really knowing why you got involved. For example, you may be sucked into fighting for an overly idealistic cause that leaves you feeling unsatisfied and drained. You may be asked to surrender your individuality for a higher purpose, which may just be someone else’s ego.

Defeat can make you feel especially weak now, but do not take it too seriously since it will pass. The lesson now is to not identify with what you do, but rather with who you are deep inside. The more you identify with what you do, instead of who you are, the more problems this transit will cause you. It is a physically difficult period with low energy so you must take extra care of your health.

You will find it difficult to define and fully understand your desires, and thus be inclined to do things that are not effective. This could be because you have conflicting subconscious desires and motives. Emotional frustrations could lead to ill-conceived or confused action.

You can’t rely on others now. You’re forced to rely on your inner resources and self-confidence. Depending on your character and what you’re already used to, this can be quite difficult. Beware of deception in matters of work, finance, or business. There could be an element of secrecy and intrigue involved in your work, personal matters, and financial dealings.

Transit Neptune Opposite Natal Mars

When transiting Neptune is opposite your natal Mars, do not get involved in subversive, secret or dishonest business or actions, as you may end up being the victim of another person. If an opportunity sounds to good to be true, it is. Beware of high-risk speculation. At the same time, don’t try to deceive others because things are not likely to turn out as planned.

Take extra care of your health because your body is more sensitive than usual. Wash your hands to prevent infection. Carefully watch your reaction to medications or drugs. You may feel more tired now, so make sure to get enough sleep and rest.

This is a period of low energy. Do not plan new activities since you’re not likely to have the drive to follow through. You may feel completely defeated or beaten. You may now have an identity crisis for lack of self-confidence. It could lead you to irrational or unexpected behavior, or depression. But don’t give up, this is temporary and you’ll be back to your regular self afterward. You will have gained a more realistic understanding of your limitations and learned to conserve your energy. For now, don’t take your defeatist feelings too seriously so as not to lead to depression or a lack of vitality.

    Neptune is opposing my natal Mars in Virgo in my 3rd house. I feel exhausted and have to force myself to do normal activities around the house. I am enthusiastic about making plans initially but when it comes around to doing it I just don’t have the energy or desire. I am very anxious about the upcoming election and depressed about the state of our country especially with Covid19 spiking. I should mention that transiting Neptune is forming a mutable Grand Cross in my chart, opposing Mars and squaring Jupiter in Sag and Uranus in Gemini which makes for very trying times. I’m usually an upbeat person but this is a drag. Of course all those transiting Capricorn planets are close to my 29 degree Capricorn 7th house cusp too. Sorry to be rambling. I could go on and on about astrology.

      Hi, I have transit neptune opposite my natal mars in virgo 6th house. I feel you! Today I woke up with such a funk, and wanted to just stay in bed, but the farm still needs to be attended to, ya know? I feel an overwhelming depression at the state of the world, too. Know that you are not alone, and this too shall pass.

  2. Neptune is just beginning to form a trine to my natal Mars and I have to agree with the above diagnosis. My previously competitive instincts are being sublimated by working in co-operation with others, particularly in artistic endeavors. Also I am starting to interact with my two grand-daughters and understanding my role in helping them to relate to the world. I am also learning from them.
