You’ll see people fight (Mars) by deceiving (Neptune). We often talk about “gaslighting” on this blog (tag) and that is one form of this. I’m talking about being tricked into your own self-doing or even tricking yourself into sacrifice which damages you. This is an aspect of a martyr. It’s confused (Neptune) action (Mars). It’s a drunk firing at the wrong person for the wrong reason, while trying to help. Well, gee. Thanks.
A suicide bomber is an extreme example of of this energy. It’s a flashy, attention-getting (Leo) attack (Mars) that is supposed to serve (Neptune) humanity (Aquarius). Misguided?
Mars Neptune a sneak attack but it can also have a person imagine they’re being attacked when it’s not happening. You can easily find yourself in a hall of mirrors under a sky like this. Are you feeling attacked because you are being attacked? Or is it your imagination? Is the attacker attacking by creating the confusion? Oh brother.
The Occupy stuff also fits this profile. What are we all up in arms about again? Who knows. Who is backing the movement? Who knows? We’re pissed for reason non-specific and confused as to why people are pissed as us being pissed! We’re pissed off for and by humanity?
There is legitimate danger here because we are talking about Mars. You want to avoid (Neptune) angry (Mars) drug addicts and other confused and deluded people. However, it’s just as likely people are their own worst enemy under a sky like this. A drunk who punches a cop is a good example of this. Not sure who is causing the problem there.
People who want to avoid trouble should be able to. Mars is involved in a grand trine with Jupiter and Pluto making this a matter of choice. You can get into a argument with a fun-house mirror or you can make hay while the sun shines because that option is there.
One more thing! This is also the “You’re a narcissist / No you are” aspect. Personally, I’ve got better things to do.
“You’re a narcissist, Elsa.”
“Yes, now if you’ll please excuse me…”
That’s how you deflect (Neptune) an attack (Mars).
