The enterprising Aries Moon normally positions us for confidently venturing outside of our comfort zone, although today may be a little different. This is because Mars, the planet of self-assertion and survival, and the natural ruler of Aries, is exactly opposite vague, elusive Neptune. Neptune, known as the Great Dissolver, tends to blur or obscure matters, and when aligned with Mars, we can easily feel confused or out of step regarding how to best direct our energy outward (Mars). Neptune also symbolizes our urge for flight or escape, which can, of course, be a survivalist technique in itself.
On the shadow side, Mars-Neptune also has a legacy with misplaced aggression, and even subterfuge and scandal. It is also linked with acts of surrender. (Too, on the eve of this aspect being exact, the Greek Prime Minister reportedly has announced that he will be stepping down, making the way for a coalition government in that country.)
Regarding how to navigate the day, it may be best for us to keep more of a low-key profile, and to not push or force issues. We also want to make sure that we honor our commitments and not shirk or run away from our duties or obligations. Too, it may be wise to subdue our egos and serve others instead. Mars-Neptune can generally be more of an ego-denying influence, however, when we give back to others, this aspect can help to lead us back to our true, authentic center.
“The willingness to share does not make one charitable; it makes one free.” Robert Brault
