MAY 11. Mars square or opposite Neptune bring fantasy and sport together. This is very much a chivalrous aspect and carries with it the romance of the high seas. Of course you might equally find yourself captive or captiv-ated by a rum-swilling Pirate too. This combination is extremely seductive, but with these hard aspects, are the danger of falling victim to sexual obsessions.
The victim/saviour archetype is strong here too because these folk will love to fight for the underdog. Falling in love with a drug addict is possible, as is the danger of becoming one.. Neptune is poisons and Mars is a desire for those forbidden fruit. Chasing the unattainable lover is another manifestation, as Mars loves the chase while Neptune tends towards unrequited and courtly love.
This aspect can easily become celibate, but have great yearnings for the object of their desire, who may well reside overseas. Being married to someone who makes frequent voyages abroad would suit this aspect very well, as would a career in the merchant navy. Sexual relationships are idealised and the native could actually tire of them quite quickly if not for frequent separations to keep the romance alive. (Eg: with actors and musicians who tour a lot.)

Sex is also spiritualised with this aspect and an interest in tantra. Of course the saying ‘Sex, and drugs and Rock ‘n Roll’ was made for this aspect. Glamour mixed with sport suit Mars square or opposition Neptune, since the tension means the native will really strive for the body beautiful.
You might find body-builders here, sporting heroes or even glamour models. Earning money through advertising sports gear also springs to mind. These people will become pin-ups for their Mars attributes, wether they be sexy, heroic or sporty. In the case of Andy Warhol, his passion for ‘pin-ups’ fueled his career which turned pop culture and icons into art.
There can be glamorization of crime too. The East End gangsters known as the ‘Kray Twins’ were fawned over by celebrities in 1960’s London, they even became the subject of a movie. The victim role can be romanticized also, where the chase for the unattainable become hopelessly tragic. The most positive use of this Mars square or opposite Neptune would be the the spiritual warrior, it really is the Joan of Arc aspect. It is also the knight in shining armour and the good samaritan, someone who comes to the rescue in an emergency.
Writing romance novels would be a great way to channel this seductive energy, the native would be fantastic at generating a plot with many agonising decisions. With Mars/Neptune it’s all about the chase and the seduction. Photography is big too with Mars generating the mechanics and Neptune the surrealist effect of the 3D image on a 2D surface. Designing mechanical objects, such as computers, high-tech cars or virtual reality machines are possible gifts of this aspect. Laser beams and cyber-weaponry also spring to mind.
