How Neptune Transits Reveal Spiritual Journeys

I am in deep reflection about the spiritual meaning of Neptune’s transit of houses.

Brief Reflections on Neptune

glyph-NeptuneNeptune is difficult to think about and write about, I think because thoughts and words are chiefly earthly artifacts, so they are in the wrong dimension. But we are here, so here we are. I think Neptune is more difficult to grasp than Pluto or Uranus, at least at a fundamental level.

I increasingly think about incarnated life as living on two channels, a spiritual one that transcends this incarnation, and an earthly one that IS this incarnation (more in On Being Incarnate). For me, Neptune is connected to the spirit channel where thoughts and earthly actions don’t really apply. I have to use my “higher sense” and perception. I see incarnations as spiritual journeys.

I have an immediate selfish reason for wanting to perceive Neptune. It has a unique place in my birth chart, being part of one quintile yod and three septile yods. It also bisects my tight Pluto–Chiron opposition, which is central to my early life drama. I sense that Neptune is closely related to septiles.

Pisces New Moon [Astro Weather]

Astro Weather: Snapshot

newmoon_piscesThe lunar cycle is a kind of astrological return that people have lived by for millennia, and each cycle tells a story. Astro Weather reveals the story, and its issues and theme, so you can be present and harmonize with its planetary energies.

Fog alert! A massive Neptunian fog will envelope us, beginning Sunday, 23 February. This month’s Astro Weather shows what will be going on within the fog bank. You can have a breakthrough month if you are open to operating with your intuition.

Thinking and business as usual are totally out. Mercury is retrograde in Pisces, so its analytical abilities are out of whack. People and groups who usually operate based on logic will be compromised and frustrated this month. Be on the lookout for this, and you can be the hero by encouraging people to use intuition, not logic. Logic feels safer, but the opposite is true this month.

Don’t be surprised if you and people around you are uncharacteristically insensitive, brusque, and aggressive. Venus in Aries is stressed this month, which will have many people on edge and creating conflict, not harmony.

Watch for a building social transformation agenda due to the strengthening stellium featuring Pluto.

Read on for how to make your way through the fog and to enjoy your wander! Continue reading “Pisces New Moon [Astro Weather]”

Pluto Opposition Chiron

This is an astrological black queen, and when you are dealt it, you have a lot in your hand.

Each of these bodies signifies an explicit process: Pluto’s transformation and Chiron’s healing encapsulate several phases, so the opposition carries myriad variations. Pluto’s process starts with the pressure to release, to let die, and when the native resists, it destroys. Then comes the process of regeneration. Chiron’s process starts with an unwarranted wound, a series of realizations and attempts to heal, acceptance of the inability to heal it completely, wisdom/gratitude in ideal cases, and the desire to help others heal. This opposition puts these bodies in a polarity. These facts are the basis of how it works. Continue reading “Pluto Opposition Chiron”

Scorpio New Moon [Astro-Weather]

newmoon_scorpioFasten your seat belts! We’ve embarked on a very intense Scorpio New Moon that’s bound to shed light on darkness, while Chiron’s influence imparts healing. Since Uranus is opposition Sun and Moon, revelations will affect careers. The month will have a strong family tone.

You or people you know may experience conflicts between career and family this month; if you are affected, don’t push it under the rug because the month has very strong healing potential. Don’t be surprised if some of these issues are quite dark.  The month’s Scorpio energy will be only too happy to bring secrets to light—about others—or to have kinky romantic encounters.

If you are involved in an organization that supports families, you will see unusual interest and support, so it’s time to reach out to your supporters and community. Read on to go with the flow, even if you encounter choppy waters. Continue reading “Scorpio New Moon [Astro-Weather]”

A Special Gift of Healing: Chiron Quintile Pluto

We Earthlings have a very special opportunity right now thanks to Chiron’s very close quintile to Pluto. This quintile indicates that we all have the opportunity to transform how we feel and think about old wounds and healing; it encourages us rewire our feelings and approaches. We can help others with their old wounds and receive help in healing from others.

To understand how this works, let’s first examine the parts of Chiron quintile Pluto. After that, I’ll give some general examples of how it might present, so you can look for how it’s playing out for you. I’ll also share links, so you can dive deeper into any of these subjects.

The quintile’s energy has been building since September. It was 73° on 27 September and will be exactly quintile (72°) on 19 October and it will wane until about 9 November (71°). Pluto moves very slowly while Chiron is currently moving 2-3 minutes per day, so this opportunity will be strengthening until 19 October after which it will start to wane.

Interestingly, Pluto quintile Chiron came to within 1° of exact on the day before the Libra New Moon, which has a strong altruistic and healing theme.
