“It is easier to believe in the ideal than it is to achieve it, but it is impossible to achieve the ideal if one does not believe in it.” Josh Steimie
With motivating Mars conjunct idealistic Neptune in Pisces (at 10:13 am) our actions may be guided now more by our dreams, fantasies, or illusions than perhaps by tangible reality. This can also be an especially creative time for artistic endeavors that rely largely on imagination or inspiration. Others of us may also feel a strong pull toward the spiritual or transcendent realm, as well as maybe feel more singularly directed by a sense of selflessness or compassion or unconditional love. Too, in some cases, Mars-Neptune can give rise to elements of martyrdom in which we can feel compelled to give ourselves over to a larger cause.
On the shadow side, Mars-Neptune alignments can also occasionally be very ego-denying, which can sometimes result in second-guessing or even doubting ourselves as firm backing from others may be harder or more elusive for us to obtain now. Or, it’s also possible that we may simply be feeling more misunderstood or misrepresented at this time. In some instances, Mars-Neptune aspects are also linked with actual retreat or surrender on matters, as Mars rules the urge for assertion and merged with dissolving, diffusive Neptune there can be an erosion or subjugation of that urge. It may also be the case that there’s simply not enough physical energy available to power our moves now or to want to deal with or take on any opposition.
Generally, Mars-Neptune aspects are often a good time to just chill out or relax, go with the flow, regroup our energies, turn inward and reflect until a clearer perspective re-emerges on the horizon – which it will – and we feel, once again, on more solid footing, more confident of what the next right step should be.

Astrology Past: The last time we had Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces (December 6, 2018), U.S. President George H.W. Bush was laid to rest next to his wife and daughter at his presidential library in College Station, Texas. Five living presidents, family, friends, and dignitaries from around the country and the world filled Washington National Cathedral for his funeral.
“We are a nation of communities…a brilliant diversity spread like stars, like a thousand points of light in a broad and peaceful sky.” George H.W. Bush
