Personal development PDF for this transit:


Mars is the planet of action, energy, and desire, driving our ambitions and assertiveness. When Mars transits, it influences our drive, our approach to conflicts, and our sexual energy. These transits can bring periods of increased aggression or motivation, prompting us to initiate projects or defend our boundaries.

Neptune governs dreams, spirituality, and illusions. It blurs the lines between reality and fantasy, enhancing intuition and spiritual insight but also leading to confusion or deceit. Neptune’s transits often involve a dissolving of boundaries, encouraging us to connect with our higher selves and the universal truths. These periods can be highly creative or somewhat disorienting, depending on other influences.

type of aspect:

A quincunx, also known as an inconjunct, involves planets that are 150 degrees apart. This aspect often points to strain, requiring adjustments and compromises. It reflects a need for adaptation, where different and seemingly incompatible elements must find a way to work together despite their differences.


The Mars quincunx Neptune transit, often regarded as an inconjunct aspect, presents a challenging yet mystical interaction between the energies of action and illusion. Mars, embodying our drive, aggression, and desire to act, finds itself at an awkward angle to Neptune, the planet of dreams, spirituality, and dissolution. This aspect can create a sense of confusion or disillusionment regarding one's actions and motivations. The direct, fiery nature of Mars clashes with the nebulous, elusive qualities of Neptune, leading to situations where your usual assertiveness may feel undermined by doubts or deceptive circumstances. You might experience a peculiar blend of motivation and hesitation, pushing you to act on your ideals or inspirations but leaving you unsure about the tangible outcomes. This transit is a test of faith and resilience, inviting you to refine your actions to align better with your higher spiritual or creative aspirations.

what to do

  • Reflect on your motivations and align your actions with your spiritual or creative values.

  • Engage in activities that blend physical exertion with artistic or spiritual expression, like yoga or martial arts.

  • Avoid making major decisions impulsively; take time to contemplate and seek clarity.

  • Use creative visualization to manifest your intentions, focusing on how they serve your higher purpose.

  • Practice grounding techniques to maintain a connection to reality while exploring your dreams.

what to avoid

  • Neglecting the feelings of confusion or disillusionment that may arise; address these feelings head-on.

  • Engaging in escapist behaviors as a way to avoid dealing with the challenges presented.

  • Ignoring the potential for deceit or misunderstanding in interactions with others.

  • Over-idealizing potential outcomes without considering practical steps to achieve them.

  • Allowing frustration to lead to passive or aggressive responses.

The Mars quincunx Neptune aspect can stir up internal conflicts related to assertiveness versus passivity, leading to feelings of uncertainty about one's strength and direction. You may struggle with distinguishing between what is real and what is illusion, creating anxiety or a sense of being lost.
