Dreaming big this month is like RSVPing to a huge #fistbump from Neptune!
If you want to achieve your deepest desires, Neptune Rx is the time to do it.
Mark your intentions and set course on your map of the deep sea. You may almost certainly encounter a monster, mermaid, or dolphin along your journey. Stay focused on tuning out! Neptune will test your strength and determination.
Neptune stations retrograde at 7 Degree Pisces on June 9. This cycle will last until Nov 16, ending at 4 Degree Pisces. Neptune’s powerfully deep vision sends us plunging into the cold waters of our most hidden self. Here is where we discover who we are, what we want, and where we are going.. All of those Rx Mercurial questions which are limitlessly burning your ears off right now! Take some time to honor Neptune and see what gifts the god of the sea brings you!
Master your inner conflicts
Honor yourself. Don’t allow pity to rule your mind. Control your perception and tune into the heaven you dream of. Tantalizing tidbits of your day to day life will fuel your fire. Keep pushing, keep going. Facing your fears is truly terrifying. Perhaps you talk to yourself the way you’d speak to someone you hate. Why keep going? Aren’t you tired yet? The ocean is heavy!
After a while the struggle to swim through the deep will only result in drowning. Use the ocean as your passageway to safety. Harness the power of it’s energy. Travel through the water. Swim with the waves as you surface for gasping breath. Rather than struggling against the flow allow it to help you find direction. Honor yourself deeply. Ask yourself where your most negative patterns stem from. Face those fears, moving forward. Take time to meditate and dream during this phase. Manifest the person you long to become. Neptune is standing by to assist you if you will only dive deep enough.
Sabian for Pisces 7:
Illuminated by a shaft of light, a large cross lies on rocks surrounded by sea and mist.
The symbol of the cross is known worldwide to always represent… something. A cross can symbolize a first aid kit. It will blaze across a Baptist church’s sign. Yet a cross on a street sign can warn us of an impending intersection. Someone who calls themselves a Christian may put a large cross sticker on their car (also with a Pisces/Neptune fish!). It can show us where to find medical help (Rx anyone?!) in a foreign country. The cross has recently been trendy in fabric patterns. Is it reversed, or isn’t it? One can never tell. The symbol of the cross is used across religions. It’s one of the oldest symbols recorded. Christians wear it for Jesus. Hindus wear it for their chakras. Secular Satanist wear it for their Soul. Jews wear it.. never. One thing it always has in common: it represents the spiritual. The delicate spiritual being shoved behind the dark corners of our psyche is longing to break free. The dark ocean monster under our bed wants to go for a swim. The sunken skeletons in our closet; it’s time to go Feng Shui on their asses.
The particular denotation of a large cross implies the upmost importance. The rocks which it lies upon sound like a perfect craggy shoreline for which Neptune to dive into retrograde motion. The *now breaking* intersection with Mercury Rx, lasting the next three weeks, will be challenging. As we take up our own cross we symbolically commit to searching our souls. The illuminating shaft of light beaming down makes me instantly think of extraterrestrial lights, bright stars, or a full moon. Being illuminated is often depicted in religious fine art as the sign for risen Kundalini. In mystic arts the 3rd eye or even left eye are common points of illumination. The Sea and mist almost always refer to the 12th house’s surface.. The shoreline.. The above which lies in wait to sink us deeply below. So, take a deep breath. We are going under into a journey to the 12th houses box of prescriptions..
Element: Water. Number: 12 The perfect number. The Hanged Man is a symbol for the turning points in life, showing up a need to stop and assess a situation. We’re hanging in the air until we find a new view of the things around us, a proper way to rearrange or restart. But the Hanged Man is a ‘silent’ card – there’s no pressing need for change. No big change is waltzing towards us – we can peacefully keep on hanging and complaining. The Hanged Man just shows that we’re just ‘hanging’, he requires a new viewpoint, and sometimes a lot of patience. In its positive aspect, the card shows the need for a time of consideration, the forced relaxation gives the opportunity to relax and reflect, to sort thoughts and ideas and find a new way to cope with a situation. Drive: Devotion, acceptance of fate, maturity. Light: Overcoming the ego, changing life, a new sight of the world. Shadow: standstill, rejection, loss of perspective.
Neptune Rx starting point PISCES 7
A candle burning. There is a ring of salt around it on the floor.
Spirit is well preserved from becoming untrue. It is held within its own matrix, and granted a pure and wonderfully veiled atmosphere and feeling tone and sphere to stay within. From this place spirit can empower itself to be whole, to commune, to remember, and to conceive. You are given what you need, and a specially-granted timing grace to be ushered through the world in a guided tour that leads only to the temples and the marvels that are here. However, all of this happens inside, deep inside. The outside situation may belie the inward experience. But here what seems in the moment is as nothing, and what is really there between the lines and through the cracks is everything. This is a domain set apart for special purposes, projects, and endeavors, and is the perfect retreat for one who wishes to remain in touch with the living spirit, who wishes never to forget what it is that stands under the phenomenal world and keeps the eternal flame burning without a flicker.

What activity do you hide within your 12th house? If you are unsure ask your favorite Astrologer and find out ASAP! Planets in the 12th are a keynote on where to dig deeper for answers. You may’ve hidden your darkest secrets here. It could be the temple where you house your forgotten dreams. Dust your spiritual gusto off and take care of your inner self. The 12th house needs some attention and tenderness. It longs to be understood, needed, and respected. If you don’t take to loving your 12th house self then expect to be drugged and dragged into the abyss without a chance for a last breath.
Neptune Rx Ending Nov 16, 2014
Sabian Pisces 4:
Heavy car traffic linking two seaside resorts.
The image painted in my mind weaves itself into the highways and freeways of the United States. One Ocean to the East taking you to Europe.. One Ocean to the West taking you to Asia. The interconnectedness buzzing with energy, excitement, and often- haste. Neptune Rx always tells us to slow down, go for a swim, or contemplate the deepest parts of the self during meditation/reflection. The connection of heavy car traffic (people) between resorts (escaping or relaxing? Very 12th house!) is our ending point. The question to ask is: What are we doing in traffic? As the starting point suggests, it’s our inward actions which determine our entire life. Are we being positive in traffic? Are we freaking the fuck out? Are you taking time to contemplate and resonate? Or are you screaming and honking the horn in a rush to go nowhere much faster? Our actions affect everyone. Directly and indirectly. We are all connected. Cue The Beatles:
“Within You Without You”
We were talking about the space between us all
And the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth, then it’s far too late, when they pass away
We were talking about the love we all could share
When we find it, to try our best to hold it there with our love
With our love, we could save the world, if they only knew
Try to realise it’s all within yourself
No one else can make you change
And to see you’re really only very small
And life flows on within you and without you
We were talking about the love that’s gone so cold
And the people who gain the world and lose their soul
They don’t know, they can’t see, are you one of them?
When you’ve seen beyond yourself then you may find
Peace of mind is waiting there
And the time will come when you see we’re all one
And life flows on within you and without you.
Neptune Rx End PISCES 4
Mushrooms springing up everywhere.
You’re being engulfed by external and internal factors and facets that suddenly are there everywhere and come right in–no boundaries, no separate container. The universal life-force carrier and representative, incapable of pulling away from the collective call of life, is intoxicated with it all. Massively taken over by emergent currents and whatever feels vitally important. Impressionable and suggestible with an unbelievable depth and intensity. Absorbing the shock of all that is happening here raw, and impelled to rally people around to bring everybody alive, to make it happen. You ooze conviction and resonance with the basic core spirit in each and all–three hundred percent all the way. (From Inside Degrees: Developing Your Soul Biography Using the Chandra Symbols By: Ellias Lonsdale)
Mushrooms, the sexual expression of their all knowing Mycelium networks, have a long history of being used by humans to take a trip or to protect immunity. Mycelium itself is a highly smart fibre-like network, which connects everything it touches including; mushrooms, trees, and other plant life. There is even evidence which shows that insects use it! Mycelium is the plant and fungal world’s internet. Without it many types of plants, including trees, would not be living. When examined under a microscope mycelium looks like the vast reaches of space.. and also our neurological networking. We share over 40% of our DNA with Mycelium. Many people believe that Mycelium is intergalactically connected. There is evidence that before this Era giant mushrooms existed. Before humankind evolved to ruin this planet, mushrooms cleaned it up for us. It’s likely they will survive our extinction and once again remediate the planet. Mycelium can grow for maaany miles. The largest known patch on Earth is 2,384 acres and located in Oregon. It speaks to the connectedness of people, as the Sabian symbol suggests, often scattered between oceans.
We may seem miles apart, but nothing truly separates us. We are all connected. We are all here for one another. The key to our karma, our other lives choices, is how we treated others. Choosing the options which benefit as many people as possible.. That is the goal.
Life is about experiencing bliss through a brief conversation. It’s about touching someones day and carrying them with you in your heart all afternoon. The intoxicating effect of a crowd experiencing the same musical ecstasy is both engaging and engulfing. Everyone wants to feel more alive. The best way to start that journey is to practice being as genuine as possible. Even if you are awkward, do it anyway. Each one of us represents a connection. If we are not our highest self we cannot connect within and without others. We need each other.
“For, those things that are as hindrances or troubles MUST be turned into stepping-stones, and not stumbling-stones; else a soul falls backward rather than progresses.” #EdgarCayce reading 2331-1
