Most hip hop fans are familiar with Common’s 2005 album “Be”, and his song featuring Kanye West entitled “Go”.
” And on the count of three…everybody run back to ya fantasy…”
When I think about how Mars relates to Neptune in a synastry chart, this song struck a chord with me IMMEDIATELY.
Mars literally symbolizes our “GO”. It represents our drive, action and our efforts to obtain what we desire, whether it’s the fulfillment of cherished goals, status, power or SEX.
Neptune’s energy is slippery, ethereal, nebulous and boundless. Something we can’t quite put our finger on. Frankly, it can be difficult to grasp.
So, what’s the dynamic look like when there’s Mars-Neptune contact between two individuals?
On the constructive side, the potential is immense for a couple to dream together actively. An unconditional and steady support of each partner’s aspirations can be honored with this planetary pairing. Mutual creativity and inspiration may abound which springs from the feeling of being connected to the whole of life.
Both people have the potential to motivate one another to transcend the constraints of living a one dimensional existence, or a life rigidly defined within linear limitations.
Sexually, a potent thrust of idealism and a “sixth sense” psychic connection can serve as the golden threads which permeate the relationship. There may be the feeling that one has discovered the PERFECT sexual union. That your partner touches you just the right way, utters the poetic, yet nasty words that excite and enchant you and whose movements mesh with the rhythms of your body.
The potential challenge, or even downfall can emerge when you depend on sexual liaisons to act as the exclusive sustainer of the relationship. You may become engulfed in a morass of haze, indecisiveness and confusion as to where you actually stand with your partner, as to what it all means now.
Although great sex may provide a temporary “high”, your intoxication may lead you to ignore issues which continue to increase in their significance and bubble over as a result of your neglect. When the smoke has cleared you may wake up and find yourself depleted of the energy it takes to honestly and squarely address your issues.
The remedy here is to couple up and use your collective powers of discrimination to understand the difference between fantasy as a form of creativity and journeying into the interior of one another’s psyche, and a lingering addiction or escape from reality which can severely block the flow of authentic intimacy.
So….at the count of three, you can run back to your fantasy, but it’s up to YOU to decide what the contents of that fantasy will be. The health of your relationship depends on it.
