Transit Neptune Conjunct Natal Mars ~ Cutting your losses
Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation
Neptune Conjunct Natal Mars
This is one of the more difficult aspects with Neptune to deal with. Your assertion and will power will be much lower than usual, Mars represents your ego and will and power to do and achieve what you want in life. Such as getting a promotion or new job offer, a physical exercise regime or new enterprise. This time will feel as if everything you may try to do will end up fruitless and with failure. Neptune will make it very difficult to succeed. Mainly this is due to feeling as if you don't have the energy you normally do, feeling more tired than usual and this allows you to get a lot more discouraged. Avoid trying to cut corners or pushing ahead of the line or being dishonest to gain what you want as eventually your efforts will be undone. Try not to get too discouraged during this time, this attitude will not help you at all. Instead cut any losses or any venture that may be too difficult to achieve now. Get into a position where you don't need to be concerned about results or the future. Act because you want to act, not because you are attached to an outcome of those actions. If you can take this approach, you will understand more about your ego drives and where they may be causing you problems or where you are putting in effort where you possibly should not be. Physically, you will more prone to illness so it is important to look after yourself through a good diet and a mild exercise regime where you are not putting too much emphasis on results but merely just to keep your body in good shape such as Yoga, Pilates or other mild forms of exercise.
