This post is a blending of several modalities and tools that I offer my clients – Biodynamic Cranio Sacral Therapy and Spiritual Astrology. For definitions of these, look at their respective pages / categories or go back to previous posts.
I went for a hike today, with the intention to get some exercise – move that fluid body! And I received, you could say downloaded, more than I was expecting. I sat down to meditate in the woods and practice a little of what I learned last week at the Biodynamic Cranio Sacral Therapy seminar – “Orient to the mid-line (of the body, e.g. the central channel which runs down the front of the spine / core of the body).” I kept having the word “Neptune” coming to mind, despite my attempting to clear my mind.
Well guess what? As I continued walking, I realized that there is a dynamic fulcrum right now pulling directly on my natal Neptune – applying tension, asking for a choice – either return to old patterns or re-pattern the system in a new way. I was thinking to myself, “Wow, I have been considering offering some fairly bold ideas on here! (In the form of workshops and new directions) Almost to the point of wondering where the source of delusion was coming from.” I was wondering who I knew who had Neptune affecting their charts now… Then, “Ohhhh!!! It’s me!!!…” Time to ground, time to consider my options and what I am working with. Let me explain:
I am a Sun sign Pisces – which is naturally ruled by the planet Neptune. In my chart, I also have Neptune squaring my natal Sun (making the planet’s affects even stronger). Not only is it my Sun ruler, but it is in a tense aspect with the Sun. Neptune’s shadowy traits are to be lost in the clouds, to be vague and nebulous, possibly dissociated or escaping reality with addictions. Neptune has some truly incredible positive traits as well – artistry, dance, drama, photography, a great sense of spaciousness, enhanced intuition, creative mindedness, being flexible and fluid (as in the opposite of stubborn) – all great aspects of Neptune. However, when there is a powerful fulcrum yanking on it, the shadowy nature might reveal itself – usually with self deception, some delusion and possible confusion – and it goes without saying that if we are deceiving ourselves, then it is very likely and easy to deceive others. Here is the fulcrum I keep mentioning:
At present, Saturn is around 25 degrees of Virgo – directly opposite my Sun and the planet Uranus is at 24 degrees of Pisces – directly conjunct my Sun – how loverly! Wowsers.. Then throw in Mercury’s position as it completes it’s retrograde cycle – it is currently conjunct Saturn in Virgo – also opposite my Sun. Man! I need to do the most grounding practice I know of – and be very clear and bluntly honest (as a remedy to Neptune’s foggy affects – illusion-like veils). Well I have Neptune at 20 degrees of Sagittarius (5th house), which Saturn, Mercury and Uranus are all squaring right now – a significant T-square is in effect in my chart (as well as anyone else’s chart with later degrees of Sag and Gemini planets).
I am probably even more sensitive right now than I have been in a long time – with so much pressure on Neptune, it is like a geyser of sensitivity. This manifested for me during the training as extreme sensitivity to my own internal rhythms during sessions or to the lightest of touches on my head. It actually makes me feel better because I was wondering when it might fade and now I know (having the tool of astrology in hand, I can see that it will be passing by mid November).
Again thanks for reading and I wish everyone the best as we explore this slightly tumultuous time.
