It is easy to manipulate and enslave people who have been taught to "transcend " Mars with Piscean ideals.
Sentient intelligence - the ability to feel pain and to react instinctually - even aggressively - to appropriately minimize or move away from the painful stimulus - is missing for a lot of us.
Mars and Mercury/Neptune are natural partners in support of the purposes of Virgo.
I have Mars/Mercury conjunction in Pisces in the 9th house...it’s a tricky situation
I've got moon, mercury, neptune widely conjunct sun and mars (all in sag first house)
In the declinations, mars and sun both parallel neptune (within one degree).
I feel like I can relate to "the fog of war" statement somebody said. I intuit, but I am confused - I don't know where "the enemy" is... forever trying to chase the source of what I can perceive and then angered by not being able - ever - to find it..which can wind up with me being victim of suspicion, despite following my instincts with righteous intent. Past life memories of persecution, but also being the perpetrator of sometimes violent acts..
Getting carried away with ideas, trying to "save the world" through thought...
Paranoid, but they are after me,,.. alot of projection happens, both ways.
"Driven to sacrifice" is a good description. And driven to forgive. I forgive the most awful treatment. It's like I wake up with amnesia or the hurt just sheds off me. I have Mercury semi section Mars conj Neptune in the 12th. I used to think I was passive aggressive but I am self protective and just keep my anger under wraps but unfortunately, it does breakout and sting if badly hurt enough. (Mars in Scorpio). I am very musical and can sit down at a piano or keyboard and create song just like that. It think that does take some sensitivity.
My tight triple conjunction of mars, Mercury and Neptune in Scorpio has been hard to get a grasp on but “feeling” things is a great way to explain it. I don’t listen to those feelings sometimes but I have them. My spouse thinks I’m spacey.
My Mars & Mercury are conjunct in Pisces and trines my Scorpio Neptune/Moon. This often plays out for me as though I'm walking through fog and speaking into a fan. As I age and have become more comfortable with the illusive energy, I've realized the gift in allowing a silent pause before speaking/acting. That Mars/Mercury is also opposing Pluto, so if I'm impulsive and not 'feeling' out the situation first, I can easily lash out and cause pain.
