* NEPTUNIAN November Infusion & SATURN square NEPTUNE – Paranoia, and the Reality of Our Interconnectivity

16 Nov

NEPTUNE in PISCES, presently retrograde and ‘stationary’ (apparently very very slowly moving backwards in the Zodiac, from Earth perspective) goes direct on Nov 18, AND will be also squared by SATURN in SAG on Nov 26 (the effect of this transit is noticeable all Nov and Dec).

SATURN and NEPTUNE have a 35-year cycle together (from conjunction to square to opposition to conjunction). The present SATURN – NEPTUNE cycle started with their conjunction in 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down, setting off an avalanche of crumbling of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe.

NEPTUNE in its own domain of PISCES (from 2012 until 2026) is in Nov and Dec one of the focal points in the Astro~Weather, since it’s changing direction from Earth perspective. It’s a good idea to be aware of its Archetype, and able to recognize what’s up when we’re getting ‘hooked’.

NEPTUNE is a transpersonal planet – actually the ‘higher octave’ of VENUS. In other words, we are personally attracted to and connected with another via VENUS, while NEPTUNE is about being connected. (period)

It can be super simple to live in that fluid awareness – as long as we don’t go into the illusion of separateness (which the mind, the ego and other gremlins constantly try to lure us into…).

To lose ourselves in something, and drop our sense of separate identity… does it take external stimuli (and a repeated ‘feed’ even) to be in this space? Addiction is a mere substitute that often backfires…

Can you be immediately, already in the space of Oneness that having or doing such and such…. seems to promise to take you to?

NEPTUNE in its own domain PISCES (2012 – 2026): All is fluid, ever changing, yet everything is always here. There is nothing constant about you, yet something permeates your existence. Big paradoxes.

Collectively speaking: Humanity and all life forms are interconnected. We see that now inevitably on all levels, ecologically, climate wise, via the media, politically, economically, culturally.

Wherever you go, there you are.

Neptune Rules Pisces, by Johfra Bosschart

 

Have you recently felt personally overwhelmed, yet going nowhere?

Where is this going? What’s the direction?

Quite recently: Our vulnerability to terrorism, and collective fear of subversive invasion. Yet also our love and prayers for all humans who are being affected by brutal violence.
We are all in this together, as the world is connected, and we are connected through our humanness.

SATURN now in SAG (since Sept 17, and already early this year, until Winter Solstice 2017) is a contrast to NEPTUNE in PISCES in so many ways, and even marches into exact square with NEPTUNE, due on Nov 26.

 

Saturn tilted

 

Where NEPTUNE is about Unity and Formlessness, SATURN gets us into our ‘separate’ (not ultimately true, but a very good illusion) form. SATURN rules the Root Chakra, anchors us in the body, slows us down, shows us karmic lessons, and can manifest as fear and pain (‘symptoms’ of separateness).

In SAGITTARIUS which rules the world at large, long distance travel, higher education, perspective, bigger picture, freedom to move, space, is now being transited by SATURN – ouch!

After a warm welcome of war refugees from the Middle East, over the last while, escalated through the massacres in Paris, a new paranoia and xenophobia set in: “Why weren’t they registered? Terrorists could sneak in.” “The borders will be closed.” New levels of ‘homeland security’ esp. in Europe are taking place.
Whom can we trust?

Uhhh, and the ‘bad luck’ day of Friday the 13th, esp. in SCO, seemed to be fully justified again.

Yet also: Is there a bigger plot going on? Weapons of mass deception?

When 9/11 happened, SATURN opposed PLUTO (which was on the AC of the U.S.A. chart). Now, SATURN is in SAG where PLUTO was in 2001. What is the truth here? Nobody seems to have the ‘whole story’.

SATURN’s point is – often through elimination – we learn: less is more, and in this case: Find guidance from within!

Which might mean: Drop old, limiting beliefs and prejudices. How about being curious, challenging yourself, and doing a reality check (SATURN) on what you think you already know is ‘so’? Also, the bumper sticker “Don’t  believe everything you think!” comes handy.
Plus: “I don’t believe everything I see and hear in the media.”

On a personal level (which IS political): In what way do you already have the inner compass, and just don’t give yourself credit, or find excuses by giving authority away? If you know… why don’t you act on your knowing???

Also, when it comes to questions like:”Where am I going / directing my life or work?”, with SATURN in SAG, we realize that it matters less how far (geographically or success wise) and even where we are going, and much more where we are coming from. The Sagittarian archer pulls the arrow back to his heart, aims, and releases the arrow. The ‘why’ is crucial for IN-tension, for ‘the path, and for any journey. Motivation matters.

With SATURN in SAG now squaring NEPTUNE in PI for the first time (again in an extended phase from June to Sept 2016): How can we navigate the unknown and ever changing?

If we identify with SATURN, and would rather have control and a clear orientation we might get frustrated when things don’t turn out the way you expected them to be. Disappointment can show up – reminding us that we had an attachment to the outcome. Going with the flow and adapting, surfing with the situation is rather the way to let-go.

How can we allow old ego structures that pretend to protect us but are based on separation in the first place, dissolve in the all-connectedness?

How can we see spirit in matter, and the formless and infinite in the form? Science and spirituality realize that they are just two sides of the same coin. May more ‘evidence’ for the oneness of all life emerge!

And: what would the inner spiritual (NEPTUNE) teacher / guide / guru (SATURN) say to this situation that’s apparently out of control?
