In my last post on Neptune entering Pisces I didn’t mention who would be the people more likely to feel the Neptune’s effect between early April and early August 2011. These will be principally the early Water Signs, Pisces, born 18 to 20 of February; Cancer, born 21 to 23 of June, and Scorpio, born 23 to 25 of October. And also (via opposition and square aspects) the Mutable Signs: Virgo individuals, born 23 to 25 of August; Gemini, born 21 to 23 of May, and Sagittarius, born 22 to 24 of November.This transit will not stop there either, because it will return and be around for the whole of 2012, after a few months of Neptune’s withdrawal into Aquarius (from August 2011 to February 2012).
Neptune will enter in direct contact with these individuals’ identity and sense of self, represented by their Sun in the Horoscope.
Of course also people who happen to have the Moon, the Ascendant or a planet around the naught and first degree of the Water and/or the Mutable Signs will live the power of Neptune, the nature of their experiences depending on the planet involved in the transit.
Neptune’s Sign, embodying the mythic image of each of his 14 years generations, will bring experiences of love, enchantment, mystery, compassion, art, aesthetic pleasures, unbound creativity, with everything poetical, transcendent, spiritual. A way of seeing that will make our whole world partake of this mystical image.
Experiences of loss are also possible, somewhat forcing us to go with the flow of things rather than resist our fate. We may not be able to trust the situations we find ourselves in anymore or even the people we thought we could relay on. Not the best influence for reliability and substance, because we may tend to believe what we wish to believe rather than see what is really there. Beware of dodgy deals or any situations that seem a bit ambiguous or murky. The narrow and straight path may be boring and prosaic, but it may be the only safe one in these circumstances. In general terms, for good or ill, a Neptune’s transit may induce us to lose the sense of control over our lives that we take for granted, realizing that it is actually an illusion.
It will be a soul enhancing experiences for many, but also a bewildering one for some, because through Neptune we always risk to lose our sense of reality and become disengaged from our every day duties and responsibilities. Some will need to take time off from everything and just be. If this is impossible then try to make time for contemplative and relaxing activities, in particular for expressing your creativity and get in touch with your inner silence or music.
Born with the Sun at 0° 03′ of Cancer I am in for some Neptunian uplifting or dissolving too.
