• triumph-of-neptune-and-amphitrite…..the veil lifts?

    Neptune turns direct on the 18th November at 9°14’ of Pisces, his own sign. This means that uncertainties or lack of clarity that you have been internalizing and that may have surfaced from the past, finally start to lift as the fog clears (look to the houses where you have Pisces on the cusp to see where the fogginess may have been manifesting for you as well as the sign/house/aspects of your natal Neptune). Neptune transiting through the houses has the effect of “dissolving” the matters concerning that particular house even though the process is usually very long but nevertheless constant.

    As he stations direct, Neptune will be making a sextile aspect to Venus who is now in “no-nonsense” Capricorn, faithful and reliable, and still way out in space “EOOB” (extra out-of-bounds) where she’ll be more intensely herself. Let’s not forget that Venus may be known for her loveable, seductive traits but she is also ruthless when she goes after what she wants and the sign of Capricorn, could implement this callous edge although Neptune’s effect will soften the impact or heighten the cruelty of her seductive ways by adding some form of deception!

    Neptune will also station in a very close conjunction with the transiting Lunar South Node. This could have the effect of dropping or opening the veil for many of us, allowing us to see ourselves for what we are and what we have been. Is it time to let past habits behind if they no longer serve us well? Are we judging ourselves correctly, and are we seeing others in their true light? Confusion may reign especially if Neptune makes difficult aspects in the birth chart and the transiting planet aspects any of your personal planets or angles (in the signs of Pisces, Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius).

    The Sabian symbol for 10° Pisces: “An aviator pursues his journey, flying through ground-obscuring clouds.” Indicating man’s ability to develop powers and skills which by transcending natural limitations allow him to operate in mental-spiritual realms.
