Mars And Neptune


This writer once knew a somewhat irate man.  His secretary was
one of the few who could stand him. His mars was conjunct her neptune. 
His anger (one aspect of mars) amused her (neptune).  His crimson mars
was transmuted by her neptune rose colored glasses.

In other conjunction cases, the water sign neptune of one can melt away the mars will of another.

Dick Gregory's astrologer Jerrtha Love did an analysis of those
in jail for sex crimes and found that many had conjunctions,
oppositions or squares of mars and neptune in their birth charts.

Perhaps a sex crime could be compared to a Satanic pitchfork, made of Neptune's trident colored by Mars' red aggression.

But there are myriad millions of instances in which the energy of mars actualizes the highest heights of Neptunian mysticism.

Sojourner on the Red Planet



Today, the Fourth of July,


In the year of the Lord, 1997,


America commemorates her birthday


And regales the world with a rare and sublime gift;


Sojourner on the red planet,


That scans for a modicum of life


On a far and thirsty wasteland.


It’s all in the news,


And a man of wisdom says:


‘We need to know the history of Mars,


Why so red and no life bears?


 Why Venus is fair and forlorn?


Whether we be on a fate as one of them?’




And the robot trudges on and on,


Clamps hard on rock and dust -


A real son of his father,


Who churns and grubs the earth


In desperate quest for gold.


And tomorrow the earth lies forlorn:


A specimen for tomorrow-people,


Who may as well be along
This dire fate that eats life.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

As I sat on a sofa in the cool, dark expanse of the club house and watched the previews and the eventual launch of the space shuttle that bore the Sojourner to Mars, I could not help but think about our own earth. Other Youth Corps members around me in the club house of the Corpers' Lodge at Saipem Camp could never imagine  my thoughts, but I saw the pictures of Mars: the pictures of a dead but once vibrant planet. Was it possible that our world was also dying and would one day lie as red and bleak as the dead Mars?

Be aware of
Your motives,
Because I lend you my




I am not a talisman
To protect you
From your own




Accounting for self
Can mean
Claiming your true




Your beauty can't
Shine if no one
Can see through




Do not make
Or demean my




Don't underestimate
My desires
In that




I am a woman
That has
Seized her true




If you don't
Mind I'd love
Being friends without

Most people aren't as scary as their roar. Being youself goes a long way. It is not the easiest thing to do in writing always.


one out of
every two
means to me
that we need
to start trying
to accept each
other for
what we are,
or just stop
doing it.
