Mars Opposite Neptune Aspects

Filed in CANCER

moses

Mars opposite Neptune aspects can be problematic, but when they are applied to spiritual quests or creativity, the results are spectacular.

This is what Frida Kahlo emerged with after she read Freud’s Moses & Monotheism

She was Sun-Neptune in Cancer opposite Mars-Uranus in Capricorn and Leo Rising. Her Moon was exalted in Taurus and conjunct the Midheaven.  For extra volcanic intensity and depth awareness, she was also a Venus-Pluto person.

It is the perfect astrological signature for a grand-scale visionary artist. And the Moon-Midheaven often suggests a person whose work endures after their lifetime.

Seriously, click this pic to make it larger & wow out. She painted it the year of Saturn crossed her Sun Neptune conjunction. Mars opposite Neptune was a permanent catalyst for her Neptunian nature.

I love this painting, Frida Kahlo’s art. I did see the film with Salma Hayak. The film was beautifully shot. How wonderful the combination of saturn with neptune were powerful forces contributing to her art. That’s sublimation in action…I feel this as a necessary them now to the backdrop to saturn neptune chiron T square, and the venus neptune conjunction which is soon to be square to the moon… If you, Mystic are interested in Freud’s Moses & Monotheism then a book I really enjoy occasionally perusing, after reading is this: The Gods of Freud: Sigmund Freud’s Art Collection, written… Read more »

Hieronymus Bosch rose from the underworld and took a stroll down a beach in Mexico. Further infuriating Diego…

Though it will be small, I am excited to attend the exhibit touching on her and Diego’s relationship in a few months at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. One day, one day I will get to Mexico. All in good time ;P <3

I just looked at what Neptune has opposed in my chart; not just Mars. It has dealt with my 2H stellium in the past few years, in order, Mars, Pluto (while that was opposing Asc & soon my Sun) & Venus. With Karma & Eros in that 5 placement conjunction as well. And bcos Neptune is my most aspected planet l feel like l’m drowning. And for a Waterlogged person that takes some doing.

Someone throw me a life-girl

The inspiration for “Sgt Peppers…” album cover?

Ha, yes – i also thought of Mati Klarwein’s art (who did album cover on Abraxas.)

LOVE the Abraxas cover, fab memories of life when that was released, much time spent looking into that painting.

And now collectable album cover art is gone with digital downloads the thing.

Well, that means that the albums we do have from yesteryear are worth shed-loads. And if only i had thought of that before giving the whole damn lot away 25 years ago! :/

Dloads feel like nothing. I like the cardboard cd covers.

Kahlo’s sadness always stood out to me…she always seemed – at least to me – as being very much alone. I literally *feel* her Sun conjunct Neptune on Sirius, almost on what I imagine an empathic level to be. The terrible accident that left her body broken…her tempestuous marriage to Rivera where they slept separately…her sufferings with the pregnancies she had to terminate. That woman’s Journey was marked by much sorrow, but she transcended by turning it into Art

yes, I agree. She had a profound sense of suffering, modesty that you feel through her art.

Yes. In so many photos she seems so very alone, but also displaying a huge strength of character.
I love her art and can’t wait to see it and Diego’s in Sydney this year.

This is so cool! I haven’t seen this one. It reminds me of Hildegard of Bingen’s cosmic egg painting she channelled. I suppose all good artists are channeling themselves & I believe Frida knew she was doing that too.
I read that she directly painted her inner world, so really all those people-animals-gods are her multidimensional selves to my mind.
Maybe Saturn Neptune ignite her creative fires and draw these images to her.
I had that transit recently but I can’t see how it manifested clearly yet.
Now am a few deg’ off Sat-NN…

yes! It does remind of the cosmic egg!

The Egg is one symbol that appears in nearly every interesting culture.
Used to make a joke about my crystal eggs being ‘new age sex toys’ but now there is a woman teaching women how to use a polished stone egg, quartz/crystal/fluorite whatever your fave, to strengthen PC muscles!
The Egg of Creation features in French Polynesian mythology in some wondrous paintings by Bobby Holcomb. You would love his colour palette Sphinx , very Leonic.

Talk about a Neptunian spiritual conglomeration. I once massacred a book in order to pin the page with this painting on to my bedroom wall. (This was before access to photocopiers, obvs)

In this following link you can read Frida Kahlo’s own words and explanation of the painting. If you scroll down to sections 17 – 25 it’s well worth it.

I love a lot of her work but not this one.

Too busy, too symmetrical.

Give me a Rothko any day.

Sun conjunct Neptune Scorp, venus in Libra

i want a Rothko too (same placements)

To Rothko or not to Rothko! A continuing problem I have. So simple that the paintings (copies) done in the play about him were problematic because they were too good! I think that’s right. Yet I can never stop myself from loving them.

Wow the pop culture of her time. IMagine if she had lived now. The painting migh be full of justin biebers, kardashians, etc…

Kahlo was as political as she was spiritual.

I’d like to believe she would chose Pope Francis and Pussy Riot, Malala and even Bernie Sanders etc vs vapid annoying pop stars that shill crappy products to consume. I think even Warhol would have been annoyed with these narcissistic twits.

have you seen David LaChapelle’s end of world photograph with some Kardashians? I love it.

Oh yeah, that’s right! And I couldn’t make it. Remorse. I imagine it was just… mind-blowing, overwhelming Awe.

(I was laid up at the time, doing my own version of Kahlo at home. Guess what? It’s tough to paint while lying down! My hands kept falling asleep. She was so fierce!)

She also had a lot of opioid intervention, which I do not lol. But nevertheless– fierce!
