Yesterday, Neptune became the 6th planet during this season to go retrograde. Having a profound effect on dreams, illusions & depth, Neptune retrograde will give us the time needed to pause & reflect on our tendency to view the world through rose-colored glasses. Are you ready to take them off & see your world for what it really is?
Neptune in Pisces is in its planetary rulership, meaning that its dreamlike, easygoing & fantasy-like influence on us is energetically at its best. However, as it is now retrograde we will be able to see & think more clearly – the fog of illusion that Neptune casts will be lifted, & you will be shown what parts of your life that you have been denying or running away from. This will be a great opportunity for us to confidently make moves without being held back by disillusionment.
Although Neptune encourages us to dive deep, it can also bring out escapist tendencies when the darkness of the depths becomes too much for us. And beware: Neptune’s touch can be deceivingly more subtle than we think. Like delusions slowly creep up into the mind, Neptune’s dreamlike quality can lull us into madness without us realizing it. Just remember the intention of diving into the depth of things is not to create chaos, but to foster your growth using the treasures you find in the darkness. You are in control. Acknowledge your power.
More often than not, we choose to sleep with one eye open and live with both eyes shut. Neptune retrograde is a lesson for us to keep our eyes open, no matter what ugly truths we may open our eyes to. Where Neptunian influence can make us feel like what we can’t see won’t hurt us, during retrograde we are shown that they definitely can, & may have already been for some time. But you cannot heal, fix or solve what you choose not to see.
So what are you waiting for? Dive into the deep. The universe has you. You are safe. You are strong. And you can do this.
