0.41 degrees:

The following aspect occurs for such long periods of time they are considered generational. It is more useful in analyzing social trends than individual behavior.

All generations born with Neptune Sextile Pluto are particularly pragmatic and utilitarian; their watchword is practicality – “if it works, do it!” (and don’t worry about traditional wisdom). Neptune Sextile Pluto, like all sextiles, is poised to seize opportunities as they arise. Dr. Jones’ keyword for the sextile aspect is production. Sextiles are technocratic rather than philosophical, pragmatic rather than theoretical. In contrast to the other aspects between Neptune and Pluto, the sextile generations produce few exceptional statesmen or social leaders because the emphasis here is on individual interpretations rather than reliance on societal fiat. These generations are not particularly interested in doing what they’re told unless they can see how their own needs are directly served thereby, and they tend to be suspicious of leaders and authority.

. . .

The manner in which each individual Neptune sextile Pluto native adapts him or herself to their generation’s ideal of taking personal responsibility for making one’s own choices is shown by the value of the Neptune sextile Pluto aspect in their birth horoscope. The value is simply the orb of inexactitude: if Neptune and Pluto are within one degree of exact sextile, then the value is one; if greater than one and less than or equal to two degrees from exactitude, the value is two, and so on. This technique was devised by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones in his Lecture – Lesson on Pythagorean Astrology, Sabian Publishing, 1929, from which the keywords for the aspects were also taken.

DR. JONES’ KEYWORDS FOR THE VALUES (Aspect Orbs)

1= EMPHASIS (Doing)
2 = CHANGE (Thinking)
3 = GROWTH (Relating)
4 = HABIT (Limitation)
5 = EXPRESSION (Skill)
6 = EXPANSION (Self-enlargement)

1. EMPHASIS (Doing). All aspects within one degree of exactitude reveal their meaning in its purest, knee-jerk-responsive form – “as near impersonal as it is possible for them to be and yet be individual experiences.” Thus natives with Neptune sextile Pluto within one degree of exactness are the most compulsively pragmatic and individualistic – not in the sense of being rebellious or flaunting their independence of spirit, but rather they are self-contained lone wolves. They are idealists off on their own tangents, hence they are not especially successful in mundane affairs unless the rest of the chart is dynamic. They have considerable self-discipline, are self motivated and self-starting, and are conscientious and dedicated. On the negative side they lack perspective: they are too focused on the path beneath their feet and easily become mired in their thinking. Their individualism manifests as a naive doggedness and scrupulosity which inspires others with its unassuming honesty and integrity.

3.58 degrees:

The person is focused, centered and secure. She knows how to concentrate her energy in a way that is effective and successful. Because she bases her life on deep philosophical understandings, she is disciplined and of especially fine character. She knows the value and significance of human life better than anyone. There is a charm about the person, and certain individuals with this aspect may be quite pious and religious. Astrologer/author Grant Lewi had the Jupiter trine Pluto aspect within one degree.

1.18 degrees:

The person is an extremist. She is eccentric by nature and is a rebellious, radical thinker. She is fanatical about truth, liberty and freedom. She is independent, and may give new meaning to the concept of restlessness. She is perpetually critical, dissatisfied with the status quo, and feels it is her job to change things. The person is as adventurous as they come. She wants to try every stimulating endeavor known to humankind. She is overly idealistic and expects her greatest dreams and visions to be fulfilled in an instant. There may be serious disappointment on this account.

The person may excel in astrology or any occult field. She may break away from her given religion and engage in many different new age techniques and philosophies. Her ideas are strange and her convictions intense. She may have ideological arguments on a regular basis. The person should choose a career which allows for a great deal of freedom, diversion and personal creativity. She is stubborn and very strong-willed. She may be generally irritable and especially annoyed by slow, dull-witted individuals. She may be direct, brash and tactless. She bluntly lets her feelings be known, and may easily o ffend others.

The person should not speculate or gamble. Though she bleieves that extraordinary luck is just around the corner, it is not. Many people with this aspect handle money poorly because of their misguided optimism. The perosn is fervent and spirited. She is on a grand search for perfection and absolute truth. She has big ideas but may be quite undisciplined. She resents authority and restriction, and wants to do things her own way. The person takes lots of risks. She lives for the moment and does not bother about the future. She is original, creative, magnetic and enthusiastic. However, she must resolutely guard against conceit. Because of her overconfidence she makes hasty, unwise judgments.

The person is extremely energetic and active. She is witty, clever, and of a keen mind. She may be amongst the most psychic of the human race. There is a strong need for patience, discipline and responsibility. There may be a great deal of movement or travel in the person’s life. She experiences more changes than the average individual. She must tone down her zealous attitude and try to see things more practically if she is to realize her goals and ambitions. James Dean and cultist Jim Jones both had the Jupiter-Uranus square aspect within one degree.

1.03 degrees:

The person is overly concerned with the meaning of existence. She lives by a philosophy of duty, obligation, and responsibility. She may be so preoccupied with performing “right and significant action” that she forgets that personal enjoyment and happiness is one of the main purposes of creation. The person dreams of great achievements and grandiose accomplishments for the betterment of humankind. However, because she vacillates so dramatically between optimism and pessimism, she may lack the necessary consistency to fulfill her ambitions. There may be serious disappointment, disillusionment, and even bitterness on this account. The person wavers continually between expansion and contraction. Therefore, she is hard pressed to make wise and appropriate decisions. Her life is a virtual struggle to learn balanced judgment. Not only does she neglect intuition, but her timing may be consistently, even humorously, off the mark.

The lifetime is not an easy one. The person must work extraordinarily hard to realize her goals. She is not favored by luck or opportunities. Furthermore, like the biblical character Job, the person is certain to be tested throughout her lifetime. She constantly meets with delays, and her patience is taxed to the limits. She continually finds herself in situations requiring long periods of waiting. In severe cases the person is depressed, gloomy, and frustrated. It is no coincidence that hard Jupiter-Saturn aspects are one of the most common features in the charts of suicide victims.

The person is an excellent worker for others. She is dutiful, disciplined, and efficient. She excels in any managerial or organizational capacity. She is conscientious and always aware of right and wrong. She has plenty of endurance, strength and fortitude. She is good in the art of self-improvement.  The person is sincere and genuine. However, she lacks spontaneity, imagination and originality. She is overly solemn, and may not believe she deserves abundant pleasure, fun and recreation. She is too philosophical for her own good. There may be allergies or other liver problems. The person is well-advised to avoid speculation and gambling. In the ancient system of Hindu astrology, Jupiter is known as the chief significator of children. Individuals with the Jupiter-Saturn opposition are likely to have difficulties with their offspring. There may be abortions, problems giving birth, or other such dilemmas.

The person is traditional, orthodox and conservative. She thinks much about the past and the future. She is too sober and down-to-Earth to deliberately pursue her dreams and visions. However, if the rest of the birthchart indicates a strong sense of idealism, then even the hard Jupiter-Saturn aspects will confer to the ability to bring reality, form, and structure to the person’s most fanciful aspirations. In such cases the person can make massive contributions to society, and even break the boundaries of her chosen field. The person is project-oriented. There are periods of intense expansion and growth, as well as profoundly boring, monotonous phases.

Religious difficulties are likely. The person may have the strongest faith in God during childhood, only to experience disillusionment as she matures. There may be problems with gurus or religious teachers. The person’s devotional life, even more than the rest of her existence, is characterized by intervals of fervent idealism and hopeless discouragement. Because of her dual and fluctuating nature she does not know when to trust and when to be suspicious. She simply lacks the wherewithal to judge. She chases equanimity and reasoning power her whole life. The person is spiritually eclectic. She is discriminating, and therefore rather unlikely to stay with one particular guru or religious system.In certain cases there may be serious problems with college institutions or in obtaining higher knowledge. Also, some people with this aspect experience isolated instances of particularly bad luck. It is as if they are singled out by God or nature for some odd, perhaps karmic, reason. Sidney Poitier and Sigmund Freud have (or had) the Jupiter-Saturn square within one and two degrees, respectively.

1.05 degrees:

The person is psychically animated. She lives an ethereal, rather than physical, existence. She is blatantly clairvoyant and telepathic, though in many cases the person is unaware of any special talent since her abilities are so naturally ingrained. The person is idealistic, romantic and undiscriminating. She is impractical, unrealistic and has a difficult time in the world of humankind, due to her dreamy nature and altered perception of reality. The person is psychologically confused and restless in her soul. Her longing for fulfillment is insatiable, and she is forever chasing happiness in the outer world (where, of course, it remains elusive). Her imagination is too active and she is open to realms of existence closed to the average mortal.

The person is motivated by subconscious forces. She is powerfully afflicted by moods, feelings and psychic impressions. She lives life by instinct and emotions. She is far too impulsive. The person needs to develop caution, discipline and responsibility.

She is gullible, and easily deceived and exploited. Most importantly, she often feels like a helpless victim and lives her life as such. This is because Mars is badly dissipated by the dissolving influence of Neptune. The person has little will to confront others and take aggressive action. Because Neptune’s weakening of Mars wreaks havoc with the ego, there is a profound fear of failure. However, the complex is quite subconscious and is revealed only in the person’s inordinate ability to acknowledge any of her weaknesses or shortcomings.

The Mars-Neptune conjunction makes the person one of the best professional psychics, mediums or channelers. She excels in art, music, photography, painting, magic, etc. She is tremendously magnetic and automatically enthralls and fascinates ot hers. She is a vibrant mass of inspiration, seeking purpose and intention. Regarding sacred or mystical affairs she is the most responsive and “in tune” of all beings. Should she choose a life of mysticism or religious activity, she will find a most comfortable setting for her personality and temperament.

The person considers sex mysterious, magical and spiritual. She feels a direct correlation between eroticism and the divine. However, she may be disllusioned by the sex act itself, because she cannot relate to the physicality and earthiness of the experience. Some with the Mars-Neptune conjunction face bouts of impotence, while others occasionally attract partners who are impotent or become so during the relationship. The person is easily seduced and enjoys alluring others in the same enticing way. There may be serious sexual confusion and a world of sexual fantasies or role-playing.

There is likely to be an interminable confusion concerning desires and ambitions. Though it is not at all obvious, the person lacks faith in herself in a deep-seated way. She must cultivate a sense of confidence and self-worth, and realize that she deserves t o accomplish her goals as much as anyone. Otherwise, she will experience major disappointment and frustration regarding her life purpose. On the positive side, because the person finds it so hard to place her desires above those of others and actively pursue her ambitions, she learns (in time) how to make things happen almost magically. She does this by telepathically communicating her needs and urges.

The person needs to get plenty of rest, eat well, and guard against poisons or other substances that could harm the bloodstream. She should avoid drugs and alcohol. Health may be delicate. The person must not overwork or enter stressful situations, since she is prone to diffuse energy even in the best of circumstances. Choice of friends and associates is of utmost importance since the person is, by nature, naive, idealistic and vulnerable. Regarding love matters, advice from parents, friends and other objective sources is definitely to be heeded. Excessive emotionalism is a problem.

The person should ponder whether her ideas are real or rosy, for she is prone to delusions of grandeur. The more powerful and positive the birthchart is, as a whole, the more serious the problem. This is because the person is very intuitive. Acutely sensing her potential destiny, the person feels a hair’s breadth away from the goal. However, goals are rarely accomplished without action; for the Mars-Neptune person, the greater the potential, the greater the fear of failure and the less likelihood of action. The person may also have difficulty when expressing anger or dealing with enemies, competitors, and others who get in her way. Odd though it would seem, some people who have the Mars-Neptune conjunct do very well in sports. In such cases, their idealism is connected to Mars-type activities. More than anything, however, the person has trouble making her dreams and visions a reality (unless, of course, her desires are spiritually and mystically directed). Astrologer Dane Rudhyar had the Mars-Neptune conjunct within one and one half degrees. Former politician John Dean has the aspect within two degrees.

This is spot-on.

2.48 degrees:

The person wants to help. She is generous and her greatest pleasure is to serve and assist others. She is sensitive, perceptive and has a wonderful heart. Her motives are pure, and she is simple and selfless in wanting fulfillment for all. There is abundant talent in the arts. The person esecially excels in music, drama, film or photography. She is idealistic and inspired. When her imagination stirs him, she acts quickly and moves decisively towards the goal. Unlike most people, she is never afraid to pursue her most lofty dreams and visions. She is of excellent integrity and can certainly be trusted to keep her word. She is sympathetic, supportive and always compassionate. John Denver has the Mars trine Neptune aspect within one degree.

The person is refined. She is honorable, humane and pious in deed. She may be a very special healer. She is creative, and her greatest power comes from the spiritual world. She is good at planning schemes and organizing strategies. The person is sensuous. Her emotions are strong and deep. She is flexible, adaptable and rarely dominated by her ego. She succeeds in any service-oriented profession, and may enjoy occult or psychic work. The person is supremely blessed in being spared the need to prove herself through aggressiveness, competition, pride and egotism.

1.46 degrees:

The trine aspect is significantly more powerful than the sextile. The sextile indicates the opportunity to make the following characteristics a reality.

The person has great potential combined with the most potent energy. She can accomplish anything she desires, no matter how hard the work or difficult the struggle. Her willpower is excellent and her actions are consistent and disciplined. She is successful. The person is resourceful, balanced and healthy. She accepts responsibility for her desires and ego needs. There is a strong confidence and leadership ability. No amount of work or struggle is too much if the person has a goal she wants to achieve. Albert Einstein and astrologer Robert Hand both have (or had) very close Mars trine Pluto aspects.

The person is virile and sexual. Her procreative powers are strong. She is competitive in a good way. There is plenty of courage and the person enjoys a challenge. She is fearless, and does not allow problems to obstruct her success. The person is proud and noble. She excels in sports. She uses his instinct and intuition to gain the upper hand and win. There is strong blood and a powerful constitution. She is persistent and does not tire easily. She is creative in business, and is ambitious, dynamic and decisive.

There may be talent in metaphysics and the occult.

1.03 degrees:

The person is at the mercy of uncontrollable passions. She has to endure a turbulent or volatile love life. In past lives she may have been insensitive, manipulative or domineering with her spouse, and now she pays the price. There is a likelihood of one or more fated marriages where the person experiences enormous pain through her partner. The person is compulsive and insatiable in her need for emotional nourishment. She lacks balance and moderation. She may be excessive about pleasure, and excessive in sexual behavior. She is erotic and libidinous, and her desires are extreme. There may be a jealous or possessive nature, and the person fears rejection in a major way. She may feel unworthy and unlovable, and therefore attract partners who are emotionally unavailable or incapable of tenderness and intimacy. The partner may be domineering, manipulative, intense and just plain inappropriate. That person may also lack compassion and common decency.

The person is magnetic and charismatic. She is highly sensitive and psychic. She wants to examine all aspects of sexuality and learn everything she can about courting and mating. She enjoys breaking society’s rules and is not bound by typical cultural standards. Bisexuality is possible. The person is an excellent lover and knows exactly how to please her mate in bed. Because of her inordinate vulnerability, she willfully tries to control her love partner as well as the relationship itself. Such attempts are futile, and there are likely to be incessant power struggles. The person may be used and exploited by her spouse. The person is creative and talented, and may create powerful and profound works of art.

The person must resist the temptation to lie and engage in devious or ruthless behavior to get her way. She must cultivate strict honesty. Misuse of power will bring definite retribution and suffering. The person’s bonds are intense. She loves as deeply as is humanly possible. There are instant erotic attractions throughout life, and the person emanates potent sexual vibrations at all times. Her lovers may be famous or special. They may also die or disappear from the person’s life without a note. The person may use sex as a manipulation device to get her way. In extreme cases, of course, prostitution is possible. Traditional texts report that the person may be intense, imbalanced and greedy about money. She may struggle with lust her entire life. Larry Flynt, publisher of a pornographic magazine, has the Venus-Pluto aspect square within two degrees. Renaissance artist Rafael had the opposition aspect within three degrees.
