I was digging into this aspect the other day. I read one negative review of this aspect and one very positive one..I think the sight was netplaces? That stated a famous astrologer (cant remember his name ...maybe Richard something?) Considered it to be one of the powerful aspects. That this aspect gives you the ability to manifest your desires. They supposedly also make good astrologers and scientists.
A small extract from the book the hermes congresses "Neptune and its symbolism" by Solange de Mailly-Nesle - Loss of the Vital Instinct and Divine Possession: Let’s now talk about a relationship of Neptune / Mars and see again if the myth of Dionysos enriches our symbolic approach. Mars / Neptune has great difficulty finding its own limits and very schematically we can say that:
Either he does not know how to preserve his identity until carrying out a sacrificial action sometimes beneficial, sometimes destructive, everything depends on the rest of the theme and the consciousness which animates it: it is for example Van Gogh (conjunction Sun / Neptune, Mars in Pisces) who immolates himself in the sacred fire of his work;
Either he is acted by a conquering mystic or a quest for power where violence, cruelty is equaled only by that of Dionysus: it is Stalin who in fact a formidable demonstration with a conjunction Mars / Neptune valued by the Sun and the Moon
Either does not seem any more to be connected to their vital instinct, their instinct of conservation and which are incapable of defending their integrity: it is Lycurgue who kills his son, Pentheus who takes the risk of going to spy on the Bacchantes
Either beings who live in a thirst for conquest have lost all humanity, as if only this conquest justified their most foolish acts. Possessed by the god in a trance, outside of themselves, they are no longer linked to their feeling of being. It is the Bacchantes that nothing can hold back: "crazy for gods" they lose all notion of humanity, all relation to reality. […]
I chose an extract from the book of Neptune in the series "les Congrès d'Hermmès" p. 76: The use of astrology should be encouraged to revitalize and empower everyone in the healing power of celestial humanity. Our current ills result from social conditions engendered by wars, insane competitiveness, greed and jealousy […] The sense that we can derive from what is happening is essentially the awareness of what is necessary […]
I particularly like this last extract
With Mars and Neptune, I thought of a frog man who may be trying in a somewhat clumsy way at first to connect with the depths, to go to the palace of Poseidon, at the bottom of the sea. Alexandre Volguine in a very old "astrological notebook" had done a lot of research on all the Mars Neptune conjunctions which according to him should sign the mark of genius. So if you have that know it. That said, I would not go that far, but there is this capacity to bring out something from the collective unconscious and it is quite another thing, than simply a neutral release of energy: it can be quite the vital force of a cure, the power of prana or the gushing creation of inspiring images or even a faith which lifts all the mountains to be a pure simple tidal wave. This frog man can miss a few steps at a certain time, because he is concerned about his "beauty" underwater. Nothing is part of a physical reality. Male-female relationships with Mars and Neptune can be disturbed in both men and women. The relationship with the male may be ambivalent. The solution is the emergence of the divine, the dissolution is in inconstancy….
I wrote a lot about the conjunction of Mars and Neptune these are extracts that I already shared on my blog

These are steps to take in order to access this additional part of humanity every time. We have arrived at this second crossroads carrying the risks that we know, delivered by a news questioning the right to freedom of expression. It is undoubtedly not easy to compose with the energy of Mars and Neptune whose spiritual dimension, exceeds the comprehension which the men can not want to hear ...
