We’ve talked before about the notorious talents, crazy-bats love crap and addictions of Mars-Neptune Men. Squares from Neptune to Mars in particular can be problematic to the point that you’d want to check yourself if you saw it in a guy you were dating. (Mars = Men). We’ve also surmised that the wild-womanly version would be a tricky Venus-Uranus square.
But here lies (on the couch) Janis Joplin – vintage embodiment of outrageous talent and a taste for the Blue Devil Hoochie Juice, Space Dust, Mr or Ms Wrong and so forth. She has got a loose Mars Neptune square BUT Neptune is exact square her Moon. She had her Muse and she had her Demon. Or is Neptune both? Where-ever you see the peeps who are the most amazingly culturally resonant, adored by a mass audience and whose music seems to speak to a whole generation (the Pluto in Leos, in the case of Janis), there you see also a strong Neptune.
A Neptune square is like a beautiful beach but there is a very sudden and steep drop off point into darker waters and a deeper ocean beyond. That very same mojo that allows them to tap the collective subconscious also pulls them into dodgy druggy depths. But not always! If you have a strong Neptune, remember this: your vibe is that of a Medium or an Artist. Substances that some people take to get high or to relax are maybe to coarse for your refined aura. Or could it also be that peeps take this stuff to get more like how you are naturally anyway?
If you’re having Neptune transit, ha-ha, guess who can’t handle their toxins anymore?! But obviously, this is not a bad thing at all. The idea of deliberately keeping a pure, raw, clean high consciousness to get your Neptune Awesome on in art and spirituality is just incredible.
Back to JJ, i sometimes wonder if practically ALL of the great cultural icons were not Mars-Moon Neptune square type people, both haunted by their demons and ghosts who continue to haunt society. Or is it just because the others sober up, lose their youthful pretty and live on long enough to bore the media that once hounded them?
Oh and here is Marilyn – the ultimate poster-girl for Neptune…She had Neptune Rising in Leo – opposite Jupiter and her Moon in Aquarius, square her Saturn and quincunx her Mars. Neptune’s Bitch, may she r.i.p.
