Mercury Mars Aspecting Neptune - Sentient Intelligence
I just finished a consult for a gal with Neptune aspecting her natal Mercury Mars conjunction. It's an interesting combo - sharp and sensitive.
Do you have something like this in your chart? Do you know what I mean? Have you run across it?
Intuitive (Neptune) fighting (Mars) and strategy (Mercury)!??
Her Mars and Mercury are in the 9th like mine, but in a different sign. So I have a good understanding of how this functions but she has a strong aspect to Neptune, which I lack (or am spared, who knows).
When I use my imagination, you've got to have some flow to that sharp mental energy. Her conjunction is in a masculine sign and house and Mars involved. When you mix this with Neptune.. well it made me think of "sentient AI" but Uranus is not involved. It's like ethereal, feeling, speed of mind - no machine about it.
I think I have a research option in my software. I might see if I can search for these factors and see what charts pop up.
I think I know what you mean. My 12th house Mars is in Gemini, so that adds up to a similar flavor, no? I also have Mercury in Gemini, in a yod-like formation with my moon, Pluto, and Neptune. Mercury is deceptively out of orb for the yod, but it’s all still tied together.
With regards to my 12th house predicament…. I have spent so much time thinking about my "Unconscious Mars," that I don't believe it can really be considered unconscious anymore. At this point, thanks to Astrology, I definitely know that my Mars is what it is. So then what?
I was triggered a few weeks ago, unbeknownst to me. I noticed when I started to lose my focus, and I was aware that I was headed into a tailspin, but I didn't know why. I tried my best to stop it by doing all of the ordinary things to try to resume balance, but I only sank deeper and deeper, until I was completely defeated and depressed by the end of last week. Turns out, I wasn’t making the mental connection to what had set me off and caused me to shut down in the first place. It took me about three weeks to realize that I had been triggered at all. I’m starting to remember more instances in the past when I had zero awareness that my unwanted behaviors were caused by external factors because I allowed the negative energy to fester within myself.
Then I came to a realization that I have a way of bypassing anger, and going straight to forgiveness – which sounds great, like an expert at transcendence, but is it truly forgiveness if I never consciously experienced anger? And how might I be mistreating people while my anger is out at sea? Now I’m reflecting on my unhealed trauma and trying to learn how I can deal with it better in the future – actively learning ways to locate/identify/express my Mars energy, even if it remains shrouded in some way. That’s where I’m at right now with my Mars-Mercury-Neptune can of worms.
I have Mars conjunct Neptune in my 1st house in Libra semi-sextile to Mercury in Scorpio. My Neptune has always operated as a moderator for the aggressiveness of Mars. I think about the right way to say things without ruffling too many feathers. The semi-sextile from Mercury that I have isn't that strong of an aspect, but it does make me consider how my reactions will change my life. I weigh all things.
I recall you, Elsa, in 2015 stating that this sort of energy was "the fog of war", but this was more specific to a Piscean and Aries stellium at that time.
My son was born at this time.
Semisextiles are not heavily considered, no?
