Neptune, turns RETROGRADE June 13 @ 12 + degrees PISCES until NOVEMBER 19 when it turns DIRECT @ 9+ degrees PISCES conjunct to the FIXED STAR ANTARES/ Archangel ARIEL. Neptune is also approaching its 2nd EXACT square to Saturn June 17/18, this week with Saturn also Retrograde. We are invited to flow backwards in the stream, dream of time, matter and illusion.
One day after the terrible Orlando massacre Neptune Retrograde helps us to find our ways into our hearts to pour out unconditional love, faith and hope and to find our common ONENESS in this terrible tragedy. United We Stand. Neptune rules charity, like the hundreds of people who volunteered to give Saturnian life blood to help victims struggling for their lives.
Saturn rules the physical limits and boundaries of reality. Neptune is imagination, beyond all boundaries of time and space. These two planets are very concerned with religion and spirituality but from two different perspectives. Saturn in Sagittarius rules Patriarchal religions, a hierarchical male sky God structure of the Judaic, Catholic and Muslims and 99% of organized religions. Like John Lennon’s amazing song IMAGINE, anything we imagine becomes a reality. “Imagine no religion, nothing to kill or die for.”
Neptune governs universal Source, Unconditional Love, Spirituality, non-duality, detachment and the immanence of enlightenment. In Buddhism, Saturn rules the sufferings of age, poverty, disease and death and Neptune rules enlightenment, non-attachment and Divine wisdom. You can’t have one without the other.
These planets had their first square November 26, 2015 with both moving direct at 7 degrees. Think back on what was happening in your life. Retrogrades make us reflect. What dreams did you have, romantically, personally or collectively, and how far have they manifested?
The planet of DREAMS and the planet of reality, will have their final show down September 10, 2016 with Neptune still Retrograde. Donald Trump had a reality show called Celebrity Apprentice. He trademarked the words “You’re fired.” All Media and Hollywood are ruled by NEPTUNE. There is glamour, illusions, deception, delusions, escapism, entertainment and addictions. Donald Trump’s show,like the Kardashians, the Bachelorette, etc. are called REALITY shows, but they are not. They are scripted, directed and edited with a specific POV. They are called Reality shows because they are NEWSPEAK as George Orwell labelled them in his prophetic novel 1984. Donald Trump and his image are fake, and this election is no TV show. This is reality. This is a wake up call from our somnambulist dream state.
SATURN is here to remind us that no matter how hard we wish to escape the facts through Neptune’s veils of illusion, escapism and denial that life is HARD. Very hard, it is finite, fragile and limited. No one gets out of Saturn’s Third Dimensional plane alive. The price that every living thing pays to be here on this beautiful earth temporarily is ageing and death. Saturn governs Karma, what we sow is what we reap. Neptune rules rebirth.
Remember that Saturn was also known as SATAN, the Devil, the earthly, sexual, paradise. The Devil, in Jungian psychology is the shadow, the “other” whoever or whichever group we scapegoat and blame, hate and deny for being wrong, bad or disgusting, like homosexuals, or gypsies, witches, menstruating women, or Jews, Muslims or Christians, blacks or whites, Republicans or Democrats.
The words of the great Sagittarius poet,mystical artist William Blake comes to mind.
THE VOICE OF THE DEVIL
All Bibles or sacred codes, have been the causes of the following Errors.
1. That Man has two real existing principles Viz: a Body & a Soul.
2. That Energy, call’d Evil, is alone from the Body, & that Reason, call’d Good, is alone from the Soul.
3. That God will torment Man in Eternity for following his Energies.
But the following Contraries to these are True.
1. Man has no Body distinct from his Soul; for that call’d Body is a portion of Soul discern’d by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age.
2. Energy is the only life and is from the Body and Reason is the bound or outward circumference of Energy.
3. Energy is Eternal Delight.
Saturn square Neptune is a very challenging square. The lower side of this square can be felt as self-defeat, hopelessness, negativity and self-destruction. Escaping reality, responsibilities, turning to fantasy and illusion, projections, addictions, co-dependency, martyrdom, victim/ saviour relationships, self- pity, guilt, consumerism and whatever it takes to fill the empty hole in your soul;-workaholism, yoga fanatics,raw foodism, gym junkies, reality shows, video games, pornography, smoking pot or whatever your personal avoidance mechanisms are. It would be a great time to get sober, go to rehab, seek transpersonal psychotherapy, expressive arts therapy,a vision quest to find one’s own highest self, or ayahuasca healing with really experienced solid shamans to deal with those addictions and afflictions to become healed and whole. Saturn square Neptune also rules past life regression. Often our present life issues are past life unresolved problems. Meditate on this, Seek answers in your dreams. Get a past life regression hypnosis session to work this out.
Saturn is structure and Neptune rules the arts, magic, photography, poetry, beauty, water, oil, depth psychology, transcendence, music, yoga. It would be a good time to challenge oneself to open one’s creative side even if you think you can’t draw, sing or dance. The creative energy needs structure to flow. make a documentary about something you really feel could make a difference in the world. Set aside time to draw, to read poetry like Rumi’s or William Blake’s. Neptune rules charity, volunteer to help those in need, adopt a rescue dog or cat, donate to foster parent’s, beautify your neighborhood, volunteer at a suicide distress call center, there is always someone who has less.
In reality there is no death, and no separation from anything on this earth and in the entire Universe, we are all ONE hologram, one quantum breath or particle and standing wave in eternal motion. This is real life but it is also a dream, and an illusion. At the end of one’s life all that matters is how well we loved and gave to others.
Saturn and Neptune’s Karmic square is teaching us about how to have faith and to BE HERE NOW and how to transcend the illusions at the same time. We are called upon to build a NEW HEAVEN and a NEW EARTH.
