So, that was my post.
Feel free to reply =)
Firstly, got Pluto semi-sextile Mars half a degree orb, so i think that is similar to the inconjunct too.
Something that I didn't take into consideration, but since it's only become difficult for me during the Pluto transit conjunct Neptune and Square Mars, I think that the energy of Pluto is definitely something to be thought about as well. Especially since it is in Scorpio, Mars' natural sign.
But what you said is true.... you must know yourself. If you stand firm on a foundation of knowing what you want, what you like and what you are, and don't let anyone question your motivations or reasons, then you shouldn't feel under threat so much. (that's my Ascendant conjunct 1st house Mars talking)
Still though the IC rules your foundations, so you should find that what you stand upon... maybe a deeper sense of self-confidence is based on Mars in your 4th house... you ought to have a drive and an ability to recharge your energy from your home base.
Mars is the planet which is most like the Ascendant... they are both associated with physical appearance and puting yourself forward. Neptune on the Ascendant maybe makes you soft? And confronted by domineering parents on the IC?
Somthing to add...
I find when I am tired I allow insecurity to take control. Feel that either i have offended or that I am rejected somehow... This works in sexual level as well... if i am really tired or depressed it has a physical manifestation, which can maybe the source of some of the anxieties with sex. You maybe feel that you are not good enough in some way and therefore this causes you a real pschological problem.
Mars rules the sex organs so this is probably something that contains illusions and mistaken ideas. Feeling that you are not good enough in a sexual way.
But sex is connected to how you feel in your head because Mars rules the head and brain too. And Neptune rules emotions. You must accept that connection between the sex and the emotion and that if you can't do it one day... it is not because you have something wrong with you but because Neptune is like an ocean tide... it connects the physical sensation to the sensations which are soft and of the nature the sublime.
It must be spiritual and phsyical at the same time.
I do running. but i need music to be able to run. One is physical (mars) the other is to satisfy neptune so that i don't think about the pain, but transcend it... until all of the serotonin gets released.
It is important with Mars to "DO SOMETHING" but it has to be spiritually uplifting and emotionally satisfying with Neptune at the same time...
But must also back to earlier point of being undermined.... we must say to ourselves "I am solid.... I don't need anyone to tell me what to think... to make me doubt myself... because I know what I want and I know what I can do.. and don't let anyone question my capability."
