The week (November 19-25) kicks off with the moon in forceful Aries and two mutable squares in the same signs – Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces and Mars in Pisces squaring Jupiter in Sagittarius. Confusion, tension and scatteredness may lead to surprising revelations. Watch for unusual details and synchronistic encounters while everything seems to be “going on all at once”.

A building grand water trine from the Sun in Scorpio to Chiron in Pisces and the North Node in Cancer on Tuesday the 20th could bring up painful memories but also help to mend old wounds or make amends. Maybe it’s time to take a deep breath and just let go – let go of old stories, old attachments, old judgements, old expectations and old excuses that bar improvements in some area.

Mercury stationed Retrograde at 13 degrees of Sagittarius on November 16th, in a fuzzy square to Neptune that will become exact on December 24th. Neptune is currently slowing down to go Direct on November 23rd bringing clarity to some of the issues that have been so mind-boggling and confounding since June. That’s when Mercury made it’s first square to Neptune this year, before this planet of smoke and mirrors went Retrograde for a few months. Mars Retrograde in Aquarius/Capricorn from June 26th to August 27th didn’t seem to help matters. Now those things that were so difficult to accomplish or obtain are beginning to make more sense and fall into place.

The Sun enters Sagittarius on Thursday the 22nd and the Full Moon occurs that evening or depending on the time zone, the morning of the 23rd, at zero degrees of Gemini. Mercury is loosely opposite of this Full Moon, stirring up lots of energy, excitement and changeability. During this highly charged and very mentally stimulating week, many dreams, visions, thoughts, ideas, conversations and connections are springing up from the past or just randomly out of the blue. These mental sparks may inspire new solutions to old problems and the impetus to complete what has been started and left hanging for far too long.

With Neptune going Direct at 7 degrees of Pisces today (11/18/15), emotions and impressions are heightened to the nth degree. Many of the dreams, visions, and spiritual states that have been experienced since June 12th of 2015 when Neptune went Retrograde are now being amplified and are under review. Neptune Retrograde these past few months has shed illumination on several important topics for us. Some became liberated from patterns of addiction, abuse, or escapism, and others have found new sources of inspiration.

In light of Neptune’s directional shift and the recent Beirut and Paris attacks, many have lost their way. People in all parts of the world are swimming in a sea of bewilderment due to recent traumas. Fight or flight is a natural response to danger and extreme stress, but there is a gigantic monster of fear, hate, and denial that simultaneously seems to be seizing people from their own bodies and minds. This monster has been formed and fed over many eons, as invisible to us as Neptune and its workings, and as hardcore as Pluto and its plunging into the heat of battle.

The current square between Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius into 2016 heralds massive changes taking place with regard to religious, cultural and spiritual beliefs. The intense focus between these two Jupiterian signs challenges us to have compassion for those less fortunate while practicing our street smarts and expanding our education about our human rights before they’re all stolen from us. Our perceptions have been too limited and we have recently seen more of the big picture than we have in a long time. All across the globe we have been divided by external differences and preferences to the point that we’ve sacrificed our own authenticity in favor of the hand that appears to feed us but actually suppresses our life force energy.

Much ignorance about certain issues has been squashed during the past 5 months and an assimilation phase has just begun. Many of the stories we have told ourselves for so long and the ones we’ve been told by so many others have suddenly become obsolete. We have to leave behind much of what we thought was real, and hopefully to not settle for anything less than the truth. When there is serious doubt, we need look no further for the truth than within our own hearts. Truth can be both objective and subjective, depending on which angle one views it from. On a purely “factual” basis, truth differs from opinion in that it exists regardless of our conscious knowledge, feelings and attitudes about it. We need both kinds of truth to navigate in this world.

    Circe by John Waterhouse 1891

Neptune is in conjunction to the asteroid Circe named after the goddess of sorcery and herbal potions. She turned her enemies into animals, and from this myth stems the common fairy tale depiction of witches turning their victims into toads, crows, pigs, and insects. Neptune stationing direct with this asteroid in the sign of Pisces may signal the forces of magic and sorcery are at work on a broad scale, both for positive and nefarious ends. Beware of manipulations, illusions, and negative projections from others. For true witches, wise magicians, and spiritual healers this is very potent time for transformation.

Sensitivities are extremely high so it can help to be gentle with oneself and loved ones during the next several weeks.

Neptune Direct 2014

With Neptune going Direct in Pisces this Saturday the 15th, let’s not get cozy with fantasy, illusions, and delusions. Let’s not fall asleep in the middle of our pain, drop the ball after we’ve made commitments, or quit the race when we’re so close to the end.  Let it hurt, keep it real. Crying is fine, especially if it means staying awake instead of numbing out. Let’s not opt for the seductive Blue Pill that puts us back into a stupor as individuals. The planet of smoke and mirrors, higher love and compassion has been Retrograde for the past five months since June 10th, causing us to wake up and get real on several levels. With Neptune in Direct motion, we tend to breathe a sigh of relief and become more comfortable with our discomforts because it’s easier to find an escape. Sometimes when we’re so close to a revelation or a deep healing, there’s a certain kind of demon that rears its ugly head and bars the path. Don’t let Neptune Direct cause you to take that demon any more seriously than a lottery ticket that might win you a million dollars. As we dive back into the deep ocean of dreams, wishes and visions, we may indeed become inspired and moved in spiritual and creative ways. With openness, fluidity and nonattachment, “be like water my friend” (Bruce Lee)
