“…I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I’ve lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment….”
John Steinbeck (1902 – 1968)
Yes, well, okay…Imagine that in an online dating ad lol!
Steinbeck was an official rad genius of course but i just read the above quote and thought: Mars in harsh aspect to Neptune for sure. And voila yes. Mars in Pisces (not so strong there as is sign of Venus exaltation) and square Neptune in Gemini AND Uranus in Sagittarius. So there is a lot of don’t-fence-me-in-when-i’m-trying-to-hit-the-Blue-Devil-hoochie-juice there for sure. Yes?
Please don’t send me an outraged email to say that your mega-Zen little snookums has Mars square Neptune and is like a saint…i KNOW there can be awesome manifestations of any aspect between any planets. Really.
What do you think re the Literary Genius-Pisshead Paradigm and do these guys always require a Muse to clean up after them? Mars Neptune Men? And do women with difficult Venus-Neptune aspects go as psycho-bats as the blokes? If they do, do they get cut as much slack as the guys?
In old-school astro, any “affliction” of a planet such as Venus or Mars was technically said to hint at sexual depravity, addictions and a vile personality. See how tactful i am being?
And scarily, would Steinbeck have been so prolific, such a touchstone for many, Pulitizer winning etc if he’d been a macrobiotic guy who knew what his transverse abdominus was?
