In case anyone wonders why the past few days have been so emotionally intense, mind bending, and unbelievable, it might help to note that with such strong Neptunian energies present, next to nothing’s been what it seems (but is it really ever?)…
Neptune was opposite the New Moon in Virgo on August 25th, conjunct the Full Moon in Pisces on the 8th, and Venus has been opposing Neptune since September 5th until the 10th.
Pisces, ruled by Neptune brings the following qualities to light every year while the sun transits this sign during March, but with Neptune Retrograde in its own sign and activated in so many ways these qualities are amplified seemingly a thousandfold: The Power of Neptune
For some of us, things have been as sweet as surreal, but for the majority, the heartache of being faced with more than can be reasonably dealt with has prevailed. With subjects such as ebola running as viral as the virus itself, threats of further war, banking and money scams causing people to lose their homes, along with Hollywood’s dramas and distractions it’s no wonder that so many civilized people suffer from an anxiety so deeply embedded that it begins to rule every facet of their lives.

This is especially pertinent as Mercury is squaring Pluto (corruption, scandal, and combustion) in Capricorn and approaching a T-square with Uranus (explosive change, rebellion, and reversals – as well as intuition and freedom) in Aries. The missing point of this edgy cardinal aspect can be found in the nurturing, self-preserving sign of Cancer – a sign that never leaps before it looks. Before we can truly find our ways out of the sticky webs we’ve been stuck inside of in a corporately dominated society, we must come to grips with where we are and then utilize the “superpowers” of our higher, perhaps Neptunian mind to free us. After all, it is this same kind of power that got us there in the first place. That means that awareness is a major key to breaking anxiety. This anxiety refers to a highly charged emotional state mixed with myriad feelings of confusion, depression, fear, and overstimulation.
The more awareness we have, the less we are capable of being lied to, manipulated and made anxious, even by our own erroneous thoughts.
Whether life crippling or free-floating, anxiety can be produced by, masked by and eventually released by the powers that Neptune represents.
Take what you wish from this viewpoint and if it produces anxiety just dismiss…
