Today the Moon is in dreamy Pisces meeting up with Neptune. Neptune’s purpose is to create space to deliver a message, a vision, something from the unbound realms of the Universe. For Pisces, ruled by Neptune, the veil is very thin, the boundaries are erased and we enter into the floating cosmic vastness of limitless potential. Neptune does not associate with logical reality, but more the ethereal connection of the ALL, which cannot be explained easily with words. In this ineffable consciousness, we cannot factually explain a belief such as we may have for God or the existence of Spirit. This type of “knowing” comes through an experiential moment of awareness and a divine “vision” that something else exists beyond what we can truly see or explain. There is nothing for us to do under this energy but try to tap in, breathe in, meditate, or whatever helps you to let go and experience emptiness or nothingness, yet so very rich in “everythingness” and simple, peaceful contentment. This place can bring about a feeling of no separation, a feeling of bliss and love. A shortcut to this type of feeling can be through any type of addiction. Addictions can take us out of our conscious reality in search of the “high” and this is the shadow side of Neptune. While we may feel good for a moment, it is typically short lived and does not carry the same overall benefit as finding true connection and contentment.
Saturn is ‘squaring’ off with Neptune which may cause some tension. For Saturn is the God of Form, Structure, Concrete Reality and Discipline. Currently in Sagittarius, the message conveyed is around law and order, asking us to stand up for what we believe in and not get lost in the dream. It can be easy to say we know something but to attempt to “concretize it” or bring it into form is what these two Planets are wrestling with. Sagittarius is on a mission to find the greater meaning of it all and this quest is lifelong. With Saturn in the mix, there is a push to bring those dreams into reality. As we hold a string of a kite that reaches way up into the sky, our feet are rooted on Earth. If we can keep our connection to the kite and stay stabilized on the ground, we will be satisfying these two messengers, Neptune and Saturn.
Pluto, the Lord of the Underworld that brings the unconscious into consciousness is being stimulated by Venus in Scorpio. There may be some shadowy, gritty realities that are rearing their ugly heads when relating to others. As we walk through this intensity, it may be helpful to remember that as we become aware of our strong emotions, we can always choose to let it go making way for new life.
Try to take a few moments today to close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, releasing the thoughts of the day from your mind and relax. If old memories emerge, make an attempt to offer this to the Earth and release it.
