Neptune Transits to Natal Mars

Neptune Transits to Natal Mars

By Corinne Lane         3 Comments

When Neptune transits your natal Mars, it’s not a time to advance your own interests or desires. Your ego surrenders to higher purposes. It’s difficult to succeed and establish your individuality without considering the needs and perspectives of others. You don’t feel very competitive or inclined 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 should continually question if your actions align with the realistic goals you want to achieve.

The challenging Neptune-Mars transits increase the likelihood of dishonesty and secrecy. There may also be a crisis of self-confidence, accompanied by uncertainty when trying to turn wishes into action. Defeatist tendencies or feelings of hopelessness can arise, along with weakened physical health. Fatigue, lack of energy, and countless exhausting or sacrificial efforts can occur. Therefore, taking care of your health is crucial.

    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.
