Neptune Retro, June/July Highlights, November Eclipse Notes!


Skip straight to the bottom if you are looking for the Mechanics!
I’m going to ramble on…


Who is disillusioned?
Or frightened that they soon will be?
Who is longing for some release that never happened ?
Or bitterly cursing a superman who never showed up?


When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize its own.

There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb

The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing:
the world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you. — David Whyte



If your life is a fairy story, which one is it?
Are you imprisoned in a tower?
Fighting an evil beast that grows six heads for every one you cut off?


Remember that to gain power over the demon you must know it’s true name,
and speak of it thus. Remember that sunlight kills the creatures
that flourish only in the dark.
In the sun they are mute and motionless, inert.
They turn to STONE.

Who is it you are seeking here in the sea of faces? A lost twin, a fallen idol?
Do you want to find yourself?
To disappear?

Remember that the rules of dreams apply now,
everyone in the dream is you in one shape or another.
The crone maybe ugly but she is wise.

The fairy godmother knows that spells have limits, be home at midnight,
don’t look back, The hero may be brave, but he is foolish,
and that foolishness or is it innocence will save him.
What does it mean to set out in search of destiny, to make your way along the road?

How hard is it to see yourself clearly?
The dreams and adventures, aborted, incomplete..
what inspiration do you have to gather from the past to bring you in to the future.

Where Neptune steps back, Saturn will soon step forward.

You are not powerless, not even a little and the way out of the woods may be long and dark…
No matter…
at the moment you need not a way out, but a way in.


Why go on a quest?
Why live with a beast?

It’s a longing for mystery, that propels us forward, we tumble headlong down the well, and labor for years to get out. Go now, collect your belongings, you have left someone or something behind you!

In your hurry to solve the riddle a key, was forgotten,
a gem dropped from your pocket as you raced on your way.
Now the princess will die without a certain flower to save her!
Who will you have to face to find it? A dragon of ice? The evil witch?
Go into your dreams, Neptune is calling you…

The dropped stitch must be rewoven, this time with your true loves hair.
They don’t give these out on street corners… your tests will be many.

Where you have Neptune in your chart and by transit,
something is always leaving you,
the magic carpet takes you down to earth eventually.
But the sights you have seen you’ll never un-see!

A genie doesn’t stay in a bottle, but they do,
to your furious happiness and endless dismay,
they do grant a wish, and you pay with your life.
Learn something? Oh always!
When you sell your cow for magic beans, there surely is a giant to fight.

Have you been cheated? Oh but this time it’s different…
Have the birds eaten the crumbs you dropped?
Would you like to lose your way?


Of course losing your way can take you anywhere


Apply Saturn as needed!


The Mechanics Are Here:
June/July Highlights, Neptune Retro, The November New Moon in Scorpio!

Neptune Retrogrades from June 7th to November 13.
Neptune is key to our Grand Water Trine, Jupiter/Saturn/Neptune
the retrograde suggests that their is something we go back to collect:
the heart of our dreams.
The magic of our inspiration, our love.
This may be literal, actual people you need to be re-involved with.
Mercury moves backwards on June 26 through July 20th!
Time to rework the plan!

As we create our dreams, on a concrete level
(Saturn Direct on July 7th!)
Yes the hammer comes down.
But there is support to help you!

The time between now, and Saturn’s forward motion, is extra loose energy!
Anything is possible, and when Saturn moves ahead you have the proof!

Use the New Moon in Gemini, on June 8th to set your intentions,
imagine what you want, breathe life into the heart of it,
even if it doesn’t, as yet, exist!

Jupiter in Gemini is on it’s way to Cancer, June 25th!
From the thought to reality, something is being born!

We will see a finale of sorts with the New Moon Eclipse
in Scorpio on November 3rd.
It goes like this:

As Neptune slows to turn direct, the Eclipse Shifts power from Taurus to Scorpio.
Evolution, rather than comfort.
We take the consequences of our actions and find that the world has not ended.
We may not be rich, but we will follow our passions, we will somehow still, yes even then,
be supported and fed.

Neptune infuses the dreams you have gathered to launch your new beginning,
she softens the picture so you can live out this theme:

-To Thine Own Self Be True-

The New Moon Eclipse has Mercury, the North Node and Saturn conjunct.
Scorpios ruler Mars will fill in the details (in Virgo)
while Pluto Direct, (as of September 20th) provides the power!
Retro (as of July 17th) Uranus in Aries still a big push ahead on this one!
You knew these changes were coming, but you did not know it would be like this!
Venus in Lucky Sagittarius Blesses our way!
Ruled by a Jupiter in Crab where it could not be happier!
It’s beautiful actually and when we get closer I’ll go on…

Love YOU!!!

    One thing about the New Moon eclipse in Scorpio; Transiting Venus will be in Sagittarius.How does this affect my 8′ natal Venus in the first house Sag?

    Hey Katherine,
    I really couldn’t say without looking at your chart as a whole. But I like this Eclipse, and I like Venus in Sag. within it, Venus will be at 28 Sag. so not sitting right on top of yours. Scorpio and Sag, agree about self determination. : )
