Mars Conjunct Neptune In Scorpio – Deception With Malice

mars paintingI worked with the chart of woman who had Mars in Scorpio conjunct Neptune in her chart. She was self-proclaimed predator who deceived people with malice. She was similar to those men who seduce rich women and then bilk them out of their money.

Obviously, there are other ways this energy can be used. But if you do see this in a chart, you’d be well advised to make sure you’re not dealing with a snake.

Have you ever run into this type character?  What can you tell us about Mars conjunct Neptune in Scorpio?



Mars Conjunct Neptune In Scorpio – Deception With Malice — 103 Comments

  1. Padre Pio, Sylvia Browne, Carol Burnett, Charles Manson, Queen Mother, Howie Mandel and Napoleon all have Mars Neptune conjunctions.

    • So do I , but unfortunately I am always the one being deceived because of my pisces moon. I just cant stress enough not to generalize these and other placements.

      • Then that must be me. I am very spiritual. I just turned down incredible intense attraction after be celibate for 8 years. I’m in pain over this as I wanted to do things right. I wanted to come from a place of love. I have descendent Scorpio and Mars Neptune in 7th conjunct. As I said above I also have a Pisces moon. I won’t even get started on sexual abuse.

        • You sound highly spiritual like myself me part devil but about the men thats me celibate a long time I like your will power why not wait for the best lots of luck in the future I have the same rocky past or weirdness for me.. mars in pisces here sun leo lots of mercury in sun and venus gemini I’m 60 hope my rest of days are better its been a long fruitless but for creative persuits thats fine.. who wants to be alone?

      • the love of my life has mars conjunct neptune in scorpio and your same lovely moon in pisces, and you are right to not generalise, he is a man of his word, honorable and very honest, the way this constellation manifested in him: he is a chess wizard and used to be a military officer very loved by his men. He is a libra, a lean mean killing machine who really deeply would rather not to hurt anything. They say for a tree to reach to heaven, its roots must reach down to hell. I wouldn t trade him for anything in the world, and would die a million deaths to save his life if I had to. When someone is a master of a dark art and chooses not to use it, there is a lot of credit to be given for that, a greater glory than to the one who did not do harm but never had it in them to hurt a fly <3 yes ?

    • I simply wanted to say that Mars conjunct Neptune couple be the sign of a spiritual master, someone who uses the pain of their lives to help others see their own mistakes and to realize how much good is possible if they meditate on God the Father or are willing to surrender to Mary God the Mother.

    • Charlie Sheen. Mars conjunct Neptune in Scorpio. Sun in Virgo with Pluto and Uranus conjunct.( his Moon in Sag) Born 3rd September 1065, Chinese year of the Snake.

      • Wow! Just found out my partner of 8 years is indeed a liar/cheater. He is an amazing family man, very devoted to his work, house duties, children. Very good to me and acquiesces to my needs happily. However, he apparently hits on female clients very aggressively (we own a tour company together). Two women have come forward saying he is a predator and aggressive. He denied denied denied until I finally gingerly coaxed the truth (I’m sag with 10th house stellium) out of him. He is Virgo sun with Mars, Moon, and Neptune all conjunct in Scorpio in the 2nd house. He swears it will never happen again. I’d be out of here faster than you could imagine except we have two kids 5 and 1 together. Do you think people can get over these inherent challenges. Or is he a snake for life?

        • If he is truly interested in this will “never happen again”, he would be willing to pursue professional help. I’d suggest a strong male therapist highly experienced in working with this type of issue successfully. His not being forthcoming, along with the “predator and aggressive” in actions, doesn’t bode well for this not happening again unless something changes (especially given how he is able to be totally 2 different people: acquiescing husband, devoted father vs aggressive to clients, upon who he depends for his livelihood).

  2. Yes, I have. A man with Mars conjunct Neptune in Scorpo, an obsessive and ferocious sex drive(Mars), but often lost (Neptune) in role playing, pornography and fantasy bordering on the perverse.
    The inability to “push” through assertively to change his life or situations, no drive,(Mars dissolved by Neptune) though quite controlling otherwise(Scorpio).
    In the 9th house, supposedly deeply religious, but admitting to “carnal thoughts while at church”, and enjoys the roles and rituals of Mass.
    Positively, a love of theater and acting, once again lost in fantasy and roles.

    • Thanks Elsa! I was born october 21 1978 (230am, Melbourne, Australia) I have venus and scorpio in Mars! Conjunctions are outside my field of knowledge (lm a newbie) would mars be the reason l have such a complicated love life? Libra sun Gemini moon Leo ascendant… also my chart has many empty houses.. inc. My 7th? Any thoughts anyone has would be great!

    • I know this is an old comment but it is very spit on for my ex.
      His Mars was squaring Neptune, which again squared Venus.

      He would be SO cruel… almost sadistic in his comments. No girl was ever good enough for him, he always found another before breaking up to avoid pain.

      And yes – he was the ultimate nerd/video game lover….::

  3. Bill Clinton also has a Mars/Neptune conjunction. Actions potentially could cause a scandal. Perhaps this is an indication that one needs to face the shadow or unconscious side of how or why one asserts oneself.

    Action taken for the benefit of others is what could save oneself from oneself.

    • Interesting you mention Bill Clinton as I was thinking about Hillary Clinton’s chart with Sun, Mercury, Venus in behind-the-scees 12th house, squared Saturn, Mars and Pluto in egotistical Leo in the 9th house of law… The word “Mobster” comes to mind. .. Wonder what Huma’s chart shows..

      • Don’t forget, Hillary has #80 asteroid Sappho (same sex relations) sandwiched between her 12H Scorpio Venus and Mercury, along with an 8H Gemini Uranus (possible duality in intimate relationships).

  4. Yes, Queen Mum did have the conjunction but it was in Gemini, plus she had Sun cj Mercury in Leo: thus why she was able as Queen to lead the people of Britain through the war, by courageous word and deed.

    • Since “The King’s Speech” – work of fiction, but based to real events – is one of my favorite movies, I just had to I just had to check how her Mars/Neptune related to King George’s chart. And sure enough – it was oppose his Sun/Mercury in Sadgittarius.

  5. Funny. Just had this conversation last nite. It was more of a head shaker. Like, what? It raised the memory of a woman that I was exploring a friendship with for awhile. This man left his wife for her. He was a handyman and did all kinds of repairs and improvements on her home and then she dumped him and sold her house. She told me about her girlfriend whose boyfriend did repairs on her home and then handed her the bill and how upset the girlfriend was. The woman’s response was ‘some people always keep score.’ Well with people like her, I think there is good reason to watch the patterns. But it’s just the way she runs her life and how she gets what she wants. I’m sure she feels entitled to whatever she gets. To her it’s just business. It makes her smart, right. But it does seem reptilian cold in hindsight to me. Her neptune would be in scorpio but I don’t know her mars. Oh, and the friendship, it didn’t make it. I realized later she was just stalking another victim to see what she could get out of me. We would take turns buying lunch. Then we went to an upscale restaurant, my buy, of course. She drank 6 glasses of expensive wine. I did not stop there because I knew I was witnessing some kind of creature I hadn’t run into before. Quite the education. Like I said, cold. And yes, I could sense underlying malice of some kind. But I did not hang out long enough to figure that one out.

  6. I think I am more interested now in the pretense they present. The hook. And how they use it. But the choice is still mine.

  7. My hubby has it and in the first house! A pisces with scorpio rising. Physically,mentally, sexually abused through childhood by father, sister; abandoned by abusive mother. Needless to say he has been in therapy for 20+ years. He is a good man, he is well aware of his demons and I think walking with his shadow has been the key. He is brutally honest; for he has always told me Everything since we met at sixteen and I feel like he has lived through hell. I do see the neptune water squash mars, as he loses drive easily. But when he is on he is Powerful. My question is how the hell did an aqu/cap rising end up with this guy? I experienced no abuse as a child. Must be my venus in pisces??

      • It’s possible. There may be a lack of sexual boundaries for one thing. But I can’t explain without a chart and knowing the situation. Because it’s also possible a monk have this in their chart – transcend sexual drive!

  8. Seems like I’m easy prey for these types. A tasty little mouse. I get shystied often. I have Scorpio rising but most of its in my 12th house.

    • Me too! I had a lottery winning ticket stolen by my co worker a modest size one I brought it to work turns out 16 yrs later I’m positive she was a half sister A mean Scorpio and here in the same city so I have to see my loss in her day care business she has here and there.. and the store I brought it too I gathered they took a cut the managers Dad too acted so sneaky and smiling throughout.. hope he saved some for me… so now I still ask florida lottery on twitter and 7/11 wth? camera shots and at the store camera shots? I asked her to go check it… came back with excuses so there is a law called bearer’s rights… whoever has it? too bad I didn’t sign it now i alwys do!!!

  9. Mars in 1st house Scorpio, neptune in 2nd house Scorpio. I’m sexually aggressive & passionate. And live a bit too extravagantly for my husband’s taste. Manipulative at times. I used sex to get things I wanted. When I was younger It wasn’t cool. Bad actually. I never took no for A answer. Now I’m better. Thank God. I see things Before hand & stop myself from using my umm talents. A very strong blessing? Curse? I never meant to deceive or hurt anyone. Just took what I wanted. But never someone’s other. It’s a rule with me. No married men ever!

    • Funny I came across this & read it- surprised it was me- I’m celibate now. I don’t use sex as a weapon. I devote my time to my spouse, son and Alzheimer’s mother. I’ve come around 180 degrees. I’ve gained weight and suffer MS, but I love who I am. Strange how we change who we are over time. No longer vain just happy to be with family. Can’t wear my pretty clothes anymore, don’t particularly care either. Nothing fancy just me. Cooking cleaning decorating my home. Basically Happy!

  10. I did know someone with both in Scorpio although they weren’t conjunct; 11 degrees apart. I don’t know what house. He was the meanest, most vicious man I’d had the misfortune to get tangled up with for a long time. Cruel, opportunistic, lied all the time just because he could, but also as he was paranoid and seemed to think he needed to constantly cover his tracks. And because he tested people all the time according to his twisted values. The aim was always to have the other person on the backfoot, able to be used. A chilling view of other people, talked all the time about how he would destroy others; all the things he’d gotten away with. If he killed someone he would enjoy it. Took a lot of drugs. Thought his actions were always justified. Very compelling, a deep thinker. Concentrated, immense power; in an argument, it felt like one of those scenes in an animated film where the creature you’re fighting rears up 50 foot tall.
    I know this is foolish but just have to say, I like snakes and can see how the imagery fits but don’t like putting this association on those creatures. Can’t imagine any animal having that level of malice.

    • Animals do not act out of malice but for survival reasons and to carry on their species. Homo sapiens, while of the animal kingdom, do have the potential to be super-natural and move beyond these tendencies.

      Animals that do live with homo sapiens as pets can pick up human behaviors and I imagine could develop what seems like malice if living with malicious people. But are they aware of what they are doing?

      I think we are skittish about traditionally non pet animals because they can always go back to wild behavior . My cats were very loving and always listened well. It did not matter that their food dish was always well stocked. But when they got on the trail of prey outside in the yard, there is no way they could hear anything. They were totally focussed on the kill.

    • Thank sounds exactly like my doctor. Dr. S. Robert Rozbruch of New York. Has this conjunction. Are we talking about the same guy?

  11. I have mars conjunct neptune, but in saggitarius which gives the conjunction a slightly different flavour, I guess. More idealistic, naiv and always longing to escape a hard, hard reality! I recognize the thing about losing drive easily…

  12. Do have Neptune in Scorpio (rising), wasn’t sure 12th or 1 house but with all this invisibility going on (like for instance on here, never having gotten even 1 response, sometimes wonder if my posts even show up, just as a small example!). Sun moon Pisces in 5 but mars in 8thin Gemini.
    Tons n tons n tons of abuse, by every1 around me.
    Was thinking of doing the Venus Saturn class but don’t want to sign up n disappear between the cracks again cus of course would like to get something, actually someone real and tangible out of it, not the receding horizons I’ve gotten my entire life! It’s been real lonely 🙁

    • Funny couldn’t even get the follow up email setting to work!
      Saturn in Capricorn prob in 3 (or end 2, who knows), n Venus in Aries in 6th, I guess that might be the square then that was mentioned in that blog.

    • Don’t worry KaD, as Elsa mentioned above, everyone on the planet born between 1956 and 1970 has Neptune in Scorpio. Every single soul. No biggie. 🙂

  13. @Yz, I can relate to what you said, I have moon Neptune Scorpio 4 degrees away from the ascendant from the 12th. I also have an unaspected Leo sun. Invisibility drives me insane. As a kid, it was adaptive, now just annoying. I feel like I have to shout to be heard. It’s so Wierd. But this is off topic, sorry Elsa.

  14. Neptune in Scorpio at 26 deg 21 min 7th house
    Mars is in Sag at 26 deg 35 min 8th house.

    no love life but married, living a kind of life. can’t take any hard action to anyone. hate myself !!

  15. Interesting you mention Bill Clinton as I was thinking about Hillary Clinton’s chart with Sun, Mercury, Venus in behind-the-scees 12th house, squared Saturn, Mars and Pluto in egotistical Leo in the 9th house of law… The word “Mobster” comes to mind. .. Wonder what Huma’s chart shows..

    (This didn’t post the 1st time. If this shows up twice, sorry!)

  16. Like Zebra, I have Mars/Neptune conjunct in Sag and well, the description of this conjunction in Scorpio seems a bit mean! I feel like the opposite, prone to be deceived by others (especially men, too big dreams and passion for men that didn’t love me, but used me for a while because I let them). So abuse, mental physical, emotional, IS a subject. For me in the 10th house, so I have been struggeling to find my vocation (or just profession) all my life, still no clue! And losing drive… personally, in love and in career, yes. I know all about it. I think the Scorpio-type does not accept to be a victim (Scorpio gives more power to the Mars-side, I guess, and Sag may be a little too understanding and gullible) and therefore practises the deceive themselves. Sometimes I wish I could do that. But analyzing this combination is one thing, but how to turn this in something positive? Putting energy in being idealistic, doing something for the world (not your own benefit, but hey, you’ve got to eat too?) , and well, sports help! It is known for the attractive sportstype and actor, I thought Johnny Weismuller, Paul Newman and maybe Marlon Brando? Also, John Lennon had the conjunction, but with a big orb and in two different signs. Maybe Mars Neptune can also say: A Bullet (Mars) From out of nowhere / or for no good reason, delusion (Neptune).

  17. I have Mars conj Neptune in Scorp. I think the house placement and other signs/aspects have a lot to do with how this aspect plays out. I am probably the last person others would call a predatory snake but I can sense that darker energy in the world (perhaps because of this aspect and a busy 8th house).

    I do relate to the Neptune diffusing the Mars energy but when I can engage in Neptune-inspiring activities, I have much more success. I’ve heard that this conj tends to pull in others struggling with addiction. This has been my experience but I always thought it had to do more with my 7th house moon…..

    • Me same. The above description does not describe me at all. I have a sun moon and Jupiter conjunction in 9th house as well as Mercury. Attracting people with addictions is a common thread as well as an encounter with a few men described with the above qualities.

  18. I have this. I do hope I’m not a snake. Having dealt with this energy in my life for a long time, I would say it is important not to romanticise violence, secrecy or passion of any kind. Some of us with this signature may be veritable femmes fatales or gentlemen who bilk rich women out of their money, but I suspect many might just be enthralled by the idea. If we got within a toenail of it, we’d probably fall apart because the “mark” wasn’t behaving like the fantasy in our heads. Speaking for myself and no one else, I think there can be just as much foolishness here as expert conmanship: we’re quite as likely to to be the type who are “set up” by serious players, eg a major robbery gang, believing we are now a big shot and then left holding the baby.

  19. There is a journalist / author who I like very much and her name is Diana West. She was born 11/8/61 in Hollywood, Ca. so I pulled up a mundane chart just giving noon time of birth. She has Sun, Moon, Mercury Mars AND Venus in Scorpio! She seems to have a very sweet disposition (which I would not have figured with all of that scorpio – what do I know?) – but I can certainly see how she really goes digging for years to write these great (nonfiction) books!

  20. Hi All , I have Neptune 10/25 conjunct Mars 10/48 in Scorpio in my fifth house .So pretty tight . I’m a newbie so I’m treading water on this one . I’m pretty much cook book on them separately .. Love delving , and solving stuff , great intuition and gut reactions ( maybe that’s my moon in the 8th ) anyway always can tell a ‘ bad un ” never been wrong yet ! . Would of loved to work for the police ( in my day you had to be over 5ft 4in ) anyways . We we get to Neptune .. Can spend hours happily amusing my self with fantasty’s since I was a child .. It’s my escape from the real world for a bit . But I always come back to reality . Because too much zoning out is not good for you .. Gambling and drinking , I like both but again I’m aware when I’m getting obsessed . So I rein that back in ( strong Mars ) I could be ruthless only with those who threaten children and vulnerable people .that is my tipping point .i don’t personally relate this aspect with being cold or a snake . In fact I am the one that likes to give presents / time etc .. Fair is my middle name and abusing and using people on any level is not in my nature .. Still it is interesting to see how this aspect plays out it others charts ..just a thoughts !!!

  21. Elsa, I guess I am ten times Scorpio, ha, to say it like that. Born October ,31,1957 at 3:00 PM. I am very honest and friendly, extremely friendly, if you really appreciate me, i give you my heart, but if someone rubber in the wrong way…he is dead.Period. sexual fantasies, very rotten. Have also fantasies of people doing a harm to me and seeing my revenge by shooting them in the head to death with no mercy. If somebody did something bad to me 30 years ago, i still feel like looking for the person and penalizing that person according to the degree of the harm he committed on me 30 years ago, including killing the person if fully necessary on my mind. Over the years of my life, I confessed castigating people for things they did to me to the point of turning those people into the craziness. I admit that been born on Halloween, makes me realized who am I and I feel like if somebody messes with me…just leave the country, guy. what exactly happens with me with the planets Thanks for your answer. RG.

    • Your past life is Taurus. You probably have some big blind spots. So if you feel that way, what stops you? You don’t sound like someone whose committed any of the crimes you brag about. Your past life tendensies probably make you blab too much. Probably because your Mars is in a Venetian planet, you waver on going full force.

  22. VenusVirgo. i was looking for a convinced answer, not this. I you do this for a living and i pay you for this kind of answer, you better hold tight with my money in your hands , because i will take back with full force. Now you…VenusVirgo came and put the spoon in my table without been my server…weird…Elsa was my server, but you jump in the middle…again …weird…

    • What is “I you?” Check your spelling. Maybe you need some virgo in your life to check and recheck the details you so obviously miss…? Take $ back? Past life Taurus- over-concern with $? You proved I do know what I am talking about. You sound so insecure and threatened, so preoccupied with not losing, I would imagine you have intense difficulties sharing without expectations of something in return. Maybe that’s why you are on this site blindly putting your faith in anyone. If you don’t like comments, don’t publish your “darkest” self on a public blog you fool. You are the one that is weird you emotional mess of a water sign. Trust, I’m not a scared of You. LMAO

  23. Does this Mars/Neptune behavior apply to composite charts? I was born 2/18/60 and a guy I used to work with was born 10/28/64. Both in Chicago, Me at 8:30am and he at 10:30am. Our combined charts have this conjunction in the 9th house. Anyway I was ganged up on by my Aries supv and some of our colleagues whenever I spoke to him. Then I got fired and noone has spoken to me since. Was our combined energy evil or something? I know I wasn’t doing anything. I still can’t even figure out what happened.

  24. Wow very interesting Elsa!

    I have Mars Conjunct Neptune in Capricorn in my Tenth House.
    (Mars is exalted in Capricorn)
    I am a sex addict in recovery, and am extremely manipulative. I find what Grant Lewi wrote about this conjunction to be true in my life:
    Here is a quick quote from Lewi:
    “The most magnetic aspect of the zodiac….Doors open at your command, men obey your word, and good things of the world come to you”

  25. Hi, have been finding this VERY interesting. My partner has close mars neptune conjunction in scorpio (possibly in 2nd house, although unconfirmed birth time). He is seen by others universally as a ‘nice guy’ (sun in libra with probable asc libra, and leo moon) . I read the following with interest: ‘I do see the neptune water squash mars, as he loses drive easily. But when he is on he is Powerful.’ I would agree here, except that my man only loses drive very occasionally, and when deeply emotionally in pain. Then he drowns and shuts out the entire world, very ‘feeling’ person, very emotionally sensitive. His drive is astounding!! When focused he moves mountains… That mars in scorpio is intensely focused and highly (positively) productive. There is also a nasty side, when he perceives he’s been ‘attacked’ emotionally (whether rightly or wrongly) he sends a poison dart out, attacks as a defense. Very Scorpionic. Luckily nothing has been lethal yet 😉 With regard to sexuality, I strongly suspect that the mars neptune conj in Scorpio has made him INTENSELY sexual, all the libra (incl venus in libra in probable first house) has made the mar/nep/Scorpio thing subject to the deep emotional (yet airy) need to CONNECT with a partner lovingly – only then he’ll unleash his desire and fluidity… I also think it made him a target for women with their own considerable issues – and also, although absolutely steadfastly loyal and faithful himself, he’s suffered at hands of partners who have been less faithful. Anyway, thanks for posting the article etc (from libra sun, libra asc/ major stellium on asc + moon in gemini in 8th).

    • Thanks very much Elsa, pleasure to be here 🙂 I was reading some bits and pieces regarding moon in scorpio to try and get a grasp of why my gemini moon in the 8th house is so damn urghhhhhh!! Sounds very moon in scorpio in many ways, yet notably different (squaring venus in virgo in 12th – with pluto in virgo in 12th conjunct mercury, uranus, sun in 12th and asc in libra, + jupiter in libra in 1st. Mars is on IC in capricorn). I wouldve thought with all by cardinal air the very last thing causing me problems would be a moon in gemini in the 8th (oh, have grand trine in earth too, saturn in 7th taurus + mars and Venus). Neptune is hanging out i n the 2nd house, in Scorpio.
      Any idea of the ways the 8th is fundamentally different to moon in scorpio?

  26. I have Mars conjunct Neptune in Scorpio in the 8th. I’m 47 this year and still don’t think I have experienced all the ways this aspect manifests. I wouldn’t put a lot of it in writing. But have done both the promiscuous thing when young, and celibacy after living in a yoga cult in my teens. Money is odd for me, I have worked, toiled in life for little money & have several times when I needed money found it suddenly seemingly like magic. Once I needed a certain amount of cash to move and using astrology (uranian midpoints)had solar arc directed ju/ne=ha and realised I had overpaid my hire purchase on a fridge almost exactly the amount I needed. I was on single parent welfare for a while which is a trait of this aspect in the 8th & received much hate for it. My ex, to try & get out of child-support wrote to the tax department & falsely accused me of earning undeclared income from crime. They realised he was lying and went through my taxes and gave me a huge refund I didn’t even know I was entitled too. I didn’t even do anything, they just thought my ex was such a nasty guy. I had lots of substance abuse, I’ve done Yoga, am good at martial arts, am very obese and fluidy when inactive ( a lot of my life). I’ve had very deceptive influences from males and in work, it also has manifested by working at art.I’ve had a lot of sexual abuse and creepy stalkers and I don’t know why as I’m not really attractive. I’ve done astrology since my teens,used to do tarot. I don’t think I’ve ever taken any money or been a user, quite the other way around so far. If someone crosses me I make them pay.

  27. I know of a couple of people with this aspect. They are musicians and they are driven (Mars) to use music (Neptune) to bring society’s ugliness (Scorpio) to light.

  28. My ex-husband has Mars conjunct Neptune in his 10th house squaring Uranus in Leo in his 8th. He is very sneaky and deceptive, lacks sexual boundaries, is seductively charming to women he is targeting for seduction or sexual/romantic attention, and lies to either cover up something or to get what he wants. He does have a problem with his ambition and drive being swallowed up by both insecurity and unrealistic fantasies and expectations. He also engages in sexual/romantic fantasy. He wrote a sort of paper about monogamy — not believing in it. He confessed to being a polygamist at heart, but because society (and spouses) don’t agree with that, he hides it. I found the paper accidentally. It confirmed my suspicions that he was most likely sexually unfaithful during our marriage. I knew he had been emotionally unfaithful. He had been caught several times. He is now on his third marriage to a very naive younger woman.

  29. I too have the Mars/Neptune in Scorpio conjunction. I was born 2/16/1969 at 5:36 pm, San Jose, CA. This put the conjunction near my nadir and in square with both my Sun/Moon conjunction in Aquarius/Pisces in the 7th house and my Leo Ascendant, so I’d say it holds a place of prominence in my life. One other celebrity I didn’t see mentioned who had the Mars/Neptune conjunction was John Lennon. Warning people to “make sure you’re not dealing with a snake” seems to place undue weight on this particular aspect, as I would think ANYONE with a preponderance of Scorpio/Pluto/8th House influences in their chart have the potential to be treacherously deceptive. It should be kept in mind, however, that Scorpio is the sign of transformations of the most soulfully profound (with Pluto currently squaring Uranus and my natal Venus in Aries in the 8th and Saturn sitting on my Mars/Neptune conj., the transformation I’m undergoing is pronounced) , and the inherent strength and healing properties. It’s also an unfair distinction when you consider the different ways different signs can be malicious, whether through ignorance or unfocused neglect, and that the direct, purposeful manner does everything is but one of those ways.

  30. Hi:
    A few years ago I had neighbors who were a married couple in my apt building. She has 21 neptune, 24 mars in both in Scorpio next to the IC at 29 Scorpio. She is 5 years older than him and a severe alcoholic. In fact, I have never seen her NOT sober. Alcohol (beer is her first choice)on the breath in the morning and by night you can smell nothing but straight alcohol oozing through her pores. She bullies him quite often, sometimes fairly violent towards him on various levels. By the time I met them, they had been married for 6 years, and the violence was mostly reduced to putting holes in walls. I mean a LOT of holes. I seen their empty apartment when they moved out without the generous amount of pictures and posters covering them up. Not to mention towel racks in the bathroom ripped nearly off, practically hanging by a single screw. Now and then I was able to hear crashing noises like pots and pans being slammed into the cupboards, probably unloading the dishwasher or something. I could hear them whenever I would go outside (I used to smoke). They were all the way on the 3rd floor. She told me when they were married for only 2 or 3 years when he was stationed in Georgia, “I was a lot meaner. He used to lock himself in the bathroom and call the police on me.” I think this happened about 5 or 6 times. I’m not sure if she ever directly put her hands on him in anger. It would make sense because he was the only who one who worked (and I’m unequivocally certain it’s still like that to this day) and he always had pretty good jobs so maybe she “didn’t need to work.” No job would equal no beer. It would require only 2 brain cells to rub together to figure that one out. Scorpio always thinks ahead, and always looks at the long term picture/consequences, no matter how drunk they are, apparently. Makes me wonder what their newlywed life was like before things got to that point. He has a stellium of 6 planets in Libra, most of them falling into her second house, the house of resources. She has a stellium of 5 planets, plus her ASC in Virgo. I don’t know his time of birth, so I don’t know where his planets would fall, nor do I know what his angles are or would fall into in either charts, actually. I only just know what his planets are, darn it. He has Saturn in Gemini squaring quite a bit of her stellium. An astrologer told me that in a case where the synastry shows one person having a bunch of planets (or probably even 1 or 2) next to the one in the zodiac, in this case Virgo and Libra, Libra is pretty much supposed to teach Virgo how to evolve into a Libra. What I think is, and will continue to happen, is that he will manifest the negative qualities in the most extreme form of Libra instead. They got married in 1995, and as far as I know, they still are married.

  31. I have mars 1 degree scorpio in my first house conjuct neptune right on top of my ascendent 26 degree libra. Also saturn is 6 degree scorpio.
    I am definitely neither maliceous nor deceptive.
    I suppose neptune being in libra makes a difference?

  32. The worst two human beings in my life have this aspect. I married both of them. I must have been some kind of young and dumb idiot because I married them both and they cheated and lied. The first one took every single possession I’d ever owned. He tried to take my kids. I left with the clothes on my back and my children and never looked back. I still have to see him today. He told our son I was his most grueling opponent and there was no good way to fight me so he gave in. I find that to be a silly and funny story. But, their might be something to that. No one takes my kids! I gave him the goods, when he came for the kids I gave him my Scorpio stellium.

    The second one tried to do the same thing but I saw it coming 8 months into our marriage. He had so many emotional and physical affairs going and a woman at his work filed a sexual harassment charge against him and sued the company. (yes he was screwing her) This was my opening and my exit out of that nightmare. He knew in the state that we lived that when a couple divorces that when they sell their home the equity is immediately put back to pay the bills first. Of course he was the only one with bills. To keep me from getting half the equity he pulled cash off credit cards and put it away making it look like we had outstanding credit card debt….and so that he would get all the equity we had in out home once sold. HA. The joke was on him. When we closed on the house the real estate agent, my best friend from high school made sure that didn’t happen at all. I saw him coming from 50 miles away. I sat quietly and waited. And let him step in his own hole.

    His cheating lying ass ended up divorced, broke and sent off to another state by his company so they could clean up the mess he made at work. He started over in an efficiency apt with his clothes and nothing else. Sometimes…. that stuff backfires. Since I lived through it once, I saw it coming the second time 3 years before he melted down.

    Both men have Mars in Scorpio with the conjunction. Both are known liars who ended up with very young women who (still) believe them. Both were very good at what they did/still do.

    I don’t have to see the second one. He moved to the other side of the country. Thank god. I do however have to see the first one. My children’s father on occasion. He can hardly look me in the eye. He knows….that I know. And he knows its best he just keep the peace and move right on along. I am on to him and I have been for 35 years. Both may be the nastiest, lowest vibrating individuals I have ever met in my life but you wont see it. You’ll never know it, until you live with them and watch it play out.

    And….of course…they were part of my horrid Pluto transit.

    Lessons!!!!!! Big ones.

    No offense to anyone with this aspect. You may be a spiritual healer for all I know. I only speak of the two unfortunate demon’s I had to deal with. They were my greatest lessons and my nightmares realized. I fell for it …hook….line and sinker.

  33. Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, famous for refusing to sign the marriage licenses of gay couples now allowed by the Supreme Court to marry, has Mars conjunct Neptune I believe in Scorpio.

  34. I believe I personify this conjunction very strongly – and possibly have the one of the best iterations of it I have seen
    I have Mars Conjunct Neptune in my 10th House of Capricorn.

    I am a Pisces Rising (Ruler Neptune) with Sun in Aries (ruler Mars) in the 1st house. I am a blend of fire and water, and having both of those rulers conjunct each other in my 10th house of career makes total sense in my life.

    The conjunction also sextiles my Pluto in Scorpio in the 8th – so it is truly a very powerful combo.
    My Venus in 2nd house Taurus received a trine from Mars and Neptune. I write this, so that the seasoned astrologer understands the way this aspect is manifesting itself in my chart.

    I use that conjunction to make money. I plan, scheme, and succeed at most things I do in business. I notice I have very strong luck for myself in business, and I very persistent at going after what I want in business. I am passionate and sometimes come across as too headstrong – in business.

    In non-business climate – I am a total textbook well-aspected Pisces Rising. I’m a charmer and everybody likes me for different reasons. Depends on what I show them. I am elusive and difficult to pin down. Women are enthralled with me – but I thank my Venus in Taurus 2nd house for being successfully married. I am highly sexual and have a strong libido. Thank God – my Piscean spirituality keeps me in check.
    My Sun sign ruler is conjunct my ascendant ruler – Mars conjunct Neptune

    I completely disagree with the concept / idea of Neptune ‘watering down’ or ‘distorting’ the Mars by conjunction. I am very self-aware (Pisces Rising with Jupiter in 12th house Pisces), and for me it gives me tremendous power in career. I am super-ambitious and am the type to BUILD slowly but steadily. I definitely see the massive Capricorn influence in my career as well as my public fame (10th house). I am only 29, and have been in business for only 5 years, but it already feels like a lifetime, considering all that I accomplished and built up. I am extremely action-oriented.

    It is my opinion, that the Neptunian influence on Mars is so poorly understood by most astrologers. They see Neptune as weak or watery. I have no idea why. Neptune is so powerful and strong. The influence does not weaken anything any more that Saturn ‘takes things away’. It is so limiting to think of Neptune as a planet that weakens or distorts the energy of another planet. It CAN be destructive – and I have seen it play out in others lives.

    The combination of Neptune and Mars takes on different flavors of expression wherever it is in terms of sign as well as house position. This is an aspect that runs in my family (my father and younger brother have it in different signs and placements).

    There is this one fellow I came across, who published possibly the best essay I ever found on Mars conjunction Neptune.

    This astrologer is very young and extremely gifted. His instinctual understanding of astrological influences rival astrologers with decades of experience. I don’t even think he knows how remarkable he is in interpreting charts. I actually found him through searching for Mars/Neptune aspects (same as I found you Elsa! )

    His name is Wayman Stewart.

  35. I have natal Neptune in Scorpio trining Mars in Cancer and Pluto in Virgo. I’m a pretty laid back person until you push it too far, then I will bury you.

  36. This is probably going to be a TMI post but I’ll share anyway. When I was a young teen an older male groomed me, molested me, got me pregnant and then disappeared. There was no legal recourse back in the ’70’s. I had to pay the price. I did end up raising the child.

    I looked at this natal chart. He does not have Neptune conjunct mars. However, he does have a very tight Neptune square mars (less than one degree). His mars is in his 5th house and it conjuncts my venus, mars, sun, mercury, and ascendant. He has popped up over the years and in fact, when my daughter (the child mentioned above) was 15 he stalked her. We had to get a restraining order against him to protect her.

    It took me years to recover from that but I did. That is why I am always cautious with someone that has a Neptune/Mars configuration that touches one of my personal planets. Ugly story but it is what it was.

  37. I knew one with the conjunction in Sag in the 4th house opposite my Venus. Their idealism matched my own but they were also extremely immature, difficult to pin down, impotent, and cruel. This person admitted to marrying someone and dumping them a year into the marriage even though they knew this person was “wrong” for them all along. Why? Because they wanted to prove they could get married, which is a fucked reason. I think the only wrong person in this picture was the Neptooned-Martian.

  38. I have never bumped into anyone with this placement, but when tr. Neptune was conjunct my natal Mars, I drank like a raging alcoholic, I couldn’t leave the house sober, my only drive was to get wasted. I seduced people to show that I can but had no interest in sex or a real relationship. I had no sex drive. I never however tried to full-on profit from anyone, it was just to satisfy my own ego in a weird way. I also wanted only secret affairs even when they could’ve been public.

  39. I don’t know anyone with a Mars/Neptune conjunction in Scorpio, but I think that this aspect (in any sign) could be a great “spiritual warrior” for example.

    • Yes that’s me. 10/12 mars/Neptune Scorpio in 8th house. Venus 28. Is definitely describe myself as a spiritual warrior.

  40. Some comments here are quite scary. I have had this in my progressed chart for some time and now it is exact, only not in Scorpio but Libra.
    I have always felt this to be one of the most poisonous aspects. I am not like this by nature, but still – this can be a reminder to check my feelings and behaviour from time to time, as it is in my progressed first house near the ascendent, and I do have a rather strong Scorpio signature natally.

  41. I had this synastry with someone I was involved with for over 8 years. Only just got out of the relationship. He was the Neptune and me the Mars. His inaction, deception and addictions brought out the worst in my mars. Text-book definition of a toxic relationship. This was despite having our sun and moons all trine one another tightly (my Cap Sun, Virgo Moon, his Virgo Sun, Taurus moon). Never again.

  42. I see this popped up again. Good subject. I responded ^^^ so interesting. I married two of them. I cant believe I was that stupid. I still scratch my head …hard to imagine I had children with one of them. He lies to the kids too…oldest has nothing to do with him, youngest has little to do with him. He is a real life piece of S@#t…. I was so smart to never allow him to raise them. God only knows what they would have learned.

    He is 60…and just moved a 30 year old in with him…she has a child. Poor girl has no idea she is sleeping with the enemy…but she is.

  43. Hey, hey, hey! I have Mars, Moon, Mercury, and Neptune all between 6-10 degrees Scorpio in my 3rd house. I do have a lot of very fine qualities. In work, I am trustworthy, ingenious, brave, successful. I also cannot deny a rather slapshot approach to men- where I tend to be rather quiet and then vulnerable to the most aggressive and bullying of men. Perhaps I feel like I can negotiate with them, but generally I capitulate for great sex and then have some really crazy stories about that. I am a serial monogamist, in that I will go with one boyfriend at a time until it doesn’t work, and I tend to get cheated on or dumped quite a bit. I think my intensity doesn’t allow me the lighthearted dating necessary to evaluate a potential partner well, so I end up in unfortunate situations.
    One of my sisters said she thought I handled dating like a guy.
