Neptune Transits

Transiting Neptune

Neptune is the planet of illusion. Neptune governs illusions, dreams, abstract thought and anything mysterious or hidden. Neptune also rules movies, television, theater, fashion and glamour in general. (More illusions!)

Your more practical nature wanes as the dreamer in you comes to the fore. Fantasy and drama appeal to you now. Everyday life seems too drab and unappealing; you prefer the fantastic or mystical now. You are very inclined to daydream of how you would like your life to be: your dream house, dream job, dream car, dream lover, dream everything! The problem with this astrological influence is that you are not very motivated to do a lot about these dreams. In fact, your energy level is lower than usual and you are more susceptible to catching colds and other illnesses. This is a good time to escape to an imaginative world via fairy tales, science fiction, mythology, and movies. But be wary of a tendency to allow your life to get split into two distinct worlds: the cold, harsh outer reality versus your inner world of fantasy and dreams. If this happens, build more imagination into your life. Exotic decorations, inspiring music and art, even a modest imaginative flourish to daily activities like cooking can be very rewarding now.

This is also a time when your feelings about yourself can become very unrealistic. You may either lose confidence in your abilities and feel very dejected, or you may swing to the opposite extreme and suffer from delusions of grandeur. In either case, the problem stems from letting your fantasies get the better of you, allowing yourself to feel that you must live up to the glamorous images and fantasies that you have. In general, your judgment about most things is poorer than usual, and especially your judgments about yourself.

Your ideals and spiritual aspirations are lifted also. You are less critical and skeptical than usual, and you are more sensitive to spiritual inspirations and psychic experiences. You can make mistakes, however, when you try to identify the source of your inspirations and experiences, or when you develop a philosophy on which to base these experiences. Let your imagination and ideals soar, but be wary of the tendency to have illusions about yourself, people you idolize, and religious ideology.

Even if you are normally very practical, pragmatic, and down-to-earth, you will find yourself acting on faith now. You may find yourself buying a lottery ticket for the first time in your life because you feel like you really can win, or you may speculate on a venture because you believe it might come true. Unfortunately, you are likely to be very disappointed! Your imagination is very active and you want to see a miracle in your life, but unfortunately you tend to project your fantasies on other people and situations and consequently do not see them clearly at all. You can easily be deceived or misled, especially when you act without first clearly investigating the details. At this time you must be very careful about people that you do business with or who provide you with information, because there is a tendency for confusions or deceptions to occur.

This time period favors the exploration of imaginative, intuitive, spiritual, and psychic areas. Fantasy, fairy tales, movies, art, and music are appealing now. Books, workshops, and lectures on spiritual or metaphysical subjects also appeal to you. Even if these subjects usually do not interest you, this is a wonderful time to investigate these areas. However, be careful about forming a philosophy or making major decisions based on these new insights because your ability to formulate realistic and sound judgments and decisions is poor. This is the time to open up and expand your sensitivity; wait for a later time to make decisions as to how to incorporate this sensitivity, imagination, and inspiration into your life.

Maintain good health habits and diet and avoid unusual changes in diet or stressful conditions for your body, as your body is more sensitive than usual now.

Your energy level is lower at this time and you are susceptible to catching colds and other illnesses. Regular exercise is excellent for you, but avoid pushing yourself too far as your body doesn’t withstand stress and exertion very well now. Also, avoid making drastic changes to your diet. Improving your diet, of course, is beneficial, but your body is sensitive and unlikely to adapt well to sudden changes.

Your motivation and ambition weakens now. You are in a receptive, open-minded mood, and you do not assert yourself as aggressively as usual. You are quite impressionable, in fact, and can be easily talked into doing something that you normally would not do. You can also be deceived and manipulated by others. Do not allow yourself to be pressured into things. Be circumspect and extra careful in all of your dealings. Disappointments and inadvertent mistakes of all kinds are likely, but you can prevent many problems by being extra careful to analyze and meticulously go over important matters.

An occasional escape from your usual routine is beneficial for you now. This is a good time to vacation, engage in art work or music, attend retreats and spiritual or religious gatherings. Reading fantasy or fairy tales and watching movies is also particularly enjoyable now. This is an excellent time to pursue spiritual, religious, or psychic areas. However, this is not a good time to join a church, change religions, or embrace a new religious philosophy because you are very gullible and easily deceived now.

If you have any tendency to drink to excess or use drugs, the temptation to do so now is very strong – but don’t do it! In fact, even drugs used for medical purposes have pronounced psychological, and sometimes physical, effects now.

You may lose self-confidence now or you may swing to the opposite extreme and suffer from delusions of grandeur. In either case, your fantastic and idealistic notions of your inner potential clash with the reality of what you have made of yourself. Try not to have unreasonable expectations of yourself. Keep your ideals strong, but remember that ideals should inspire you with a vision of what is possible rather than make you feel bad about current conditions.

You pursue life with more refined and sensitive values now. You are less concerned with material acquisitions such as a house, a car, clothes, etc., and you are more aware of the more altruistic purposes of your life such as serving others and making significant contributions towards a more beautiful, harmonious world. This is a time of inner, spiritual, and religious development and growth. You become more keenly aware of your own unique and individual purposes and goals in this lifetime or, as many people would say, “the reasons for this incarnation”. This increased sense of spiritual purpose may be inspired by a book, movie, or another person, but most often it arises from within while you are pursuing the work that is most meaningful to you.

You are more compassionate and intuitive now. You are much more willing to listen to others and sympathize with them. Even if you normally are very sympathetic and understanding, at this time you will find that there are still some people you have not been sympathetic towards or whose needs and interests you have been neglecting. Now you gain a better appreciation and rapport with these people. This is an excellent time to have a heart-to-heart talk with people that you feel uncomfortable with. This is also a time when you can receive help from a counselor or advisor on matters of personal concern or regarding a personal relationship.

This is a good time to vacation or take a break from your daily routine. You will find that a break from your usual demands will provide inner, spiritual rejuvenation and inspiration.

Increased sensitivity to everything in your environment can leave you open to being contaminated by outside energies or pollutants. Therefore, choose your surroundings and those influences you expose yourself to carefully. This is applicable on many levels. People with less than honorable motives, tricksters or hustlers, may try to take advantage of you. Psychologically, you may become aware of other troubles and feel them within yourself. A compromised immune system can react strongly to any chemicals you ingest or otherwise take in. You may simply feel less vigorous, more passive, and in need of more rest and peace. On the positive side, however, you are more responsive to subtle ways of coming back into balance through music, nature, light or color therapy, and so on.

Your emotions are sensitized now. Your intuitive, feeling nature is very strong. You will find yourself gripped by feelings of nostalgia and compassion. Memories of feelings and situations long forgotten come to the surface. You are likely to find yourself writing poetry and crying at movies, even if you normally are not inclined to do so. You are much more emotionally sensitive, intuitive, and tender now. This is also an excellent time to work on remembering your dreams. Vivid, powerful dreams occur now and you can benefit immensely by interpreting and remembering these dreams.

Refining and developing your musical taste, digging up old songs that you love, and visiting beautiful places is also very rewarding now. If you are religiously oriented, you are inspired to increase your dedication to rituals and activities like meditation, prayer, or yoga. However, this is a tricky time to embrace a new religious path or join a new church because you tend to take religious symbols too literally now and you are too gullible, indiscriminate, and emotionally unbalanced.

Because your emotions are sensitized now, you can be very impractical, foolish, and unrealistic in handling practical, mundane, or business affairs. You tend to act on things that are emotionally appealing to you personally and that capture your imagination rather than what is feasible and practical. Another caveat: if you have any inclination to drink to excess or take drugs, you will be tempted to do so now, but don’t do it! Find other ways to fulfill your longing for emotional upliftment and release (see examples given in the previous paragraph).

Emotions run very high and deep now. Strange, unusual, even obsessive, feelings grip you. These feelings are often irrational and out of character, so you are likely to squelch them; they seem childish, exceedingly sentimental, foolish, and out of proportion. All of this is true, but you should not squelch them! Here are examples of the kinds of emotional experiences you can have now: crying during a movie, crying from seeing an old photograph or other remembrance from years ago, writing poetry for the first time in over a decade, feeling emotionally overwhelmed by a beautiful piece of music or a “golden oldie”, concern that the world will end next week, wondering if your mother really adopted you and you are actually an alien from another planet, or believing that you are one of the 144,000 people who must save the world. There is nothing wrong in any of these feelings, and you should express them fully. But don’t take yourself too seriously! For example, it is very unlikely that you are an alien from another planet! However, this is the time to expand the range of your feelings and develop your imagination. Fantasy, fiction, mythology, fairy tales, music, movies, and spiritual development are areas of emphasis now. Enjoy them!

You are particularly enamored of symbols at this time and consequently fairy tales, myths, and religious symbolism hold a powerful fascination for you. Vivid, powerful dreams occur now and have a deep effect on you. Try to understand the meaning of the symbolism and the message that it holds.

Be careful in all practical business matters and important decisions. Because your powerful moods and emotions affect what appeals to you, it is likely that you will choose the option that appeals to your fantastic imagination rather than what is feasible and practical.

Periodic fits of irrational feelings, suspicions, compulsive emotions, and nostalgia make this period a difficult, trying one. You tend to have intuitive hunches that you have great faith in, but most often these hunches are either only partially correct or totally a figment of your imagination. For example, you may feel strongly that someone else does not like you, that someone of the opposite sex is attracted to you, that your spouse is unfaithful, or that God has just told you to do something outrageous and controversial. The range of your imagination is virtually unlimited now, and you can cause yourself a lot of unnecessary grief if you take your feelings too seriously. Usually there is SYMBOLIC meaning (but not literal truth) to the images that come to you, and most often your intuitive perceptions are very colored by personal concerns and interests.

Artistic creativity, music, fantasy, and spiritual pursuits are good avenues for expression now. A vacation or break from your normal routine can be rejuvenating and spiritually uplifting. Try to remember your dreams and understand their message, for your receptivity in states of deep relaxation or dreaming is particularly keen now.

Be careful in making business decisions and other important practical affairs because your perception tends to be clouded by your strong emotions and moods.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Moon

Your emotions are sensitized now. You are more responsive to subtle changes in mood, and you are more sensitive to delicate changes in the atmosphere around you. You may suddenly feel uncomfortable with the colors in your house, noise from neighbors, or the drab decor of some room. This is an excellent time to decorate, clean up, and add an imaginative flourish to your environment. If you just sit back and dream about how nice it would be if your home and surroundings were more tastefully done, they won’t change! Your imagination is keen now, so put it to work; you will enjoy the work once you get into it.

This is an excellent time to develop and expand your musical and artistic tastes. You may find yourself digging up “golden oldies” that you haven’t heard in many years, or buying a record album of beautiful music that you have heard but hasn’t yet become part of your regular musical listening.

Your compassion, intuition, and spiritual sensitivity are heightened now. You may also have unusually inspiring dreams. You may also decide to become more active in efforts to promote peace and engage in altruistic activities. Your heart stays open easily now; do things and establish habits that will help sustain these positive feelings in the future.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Moon

Sympathy and compassion are highlighted now. You are more understanding, sensitive, accepting, and nonjudgmental of others. Even if you normally have these traits, you will still find that you now gain a better appreciation and respect for people that you previously have neglected, ignored, or misunderstood. This is an excellent time to talk to family members, friends, or associates that you have had a feeling of distance or misunderstanding with. You are better able to reach a deep rapport and mutual understanding now. You are also more willing to forgive the mistakes of the past. You will find that at this time it is relatively easy for you to forgive others and drop old grudges and resentments. This is a spiritually and emotionally uplifting time that you should take advantage of. Forgive others and release any old hurts now, and you will find that the old problems can dissolve. Because many problems are started in early relationships with family members, particularly with parents, this process of forgiving and releasing hurt feelings can produce dramatic improvements in your life in the long run.

This is a good time for creative art work, music, poetry, spiritual, or religious activities. You may find yourself collecting new art or music or going to the beach or mountains for inner rejuvenation or inspiration. In short, this is a positive time of heightened feelings and increased sensitivity.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Moon

Conditions in your home or family life are apt to be muddled, ambiguous, or coming undone due to neglect. Your own hypersensitivity or moodiness only adds to the stew, and you tend to exaggerate reasons for self pity or concern. Females in your life require special care and consideration at this time, and you would do well to attend to your own needs for care and nurturing also. Lazy inactivity, excessive fantasies or sleep to “escape”, the use of any mind or mood altering substance, and passivity need to be guarded against.

Water retention or problems with or around water are possible at present. Be as clear and aware as you can be when you are in fog or near water.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Mercury

Interest in non-technical, “right brain” subjects increases at this time. Your understanding of psychological dynamics increases. You can better grasp the reasons why people that you know act the way they do and you can better see the causes for problems in personal relationships. You may find yourself reading books on psychology, even if you normally do not do so. Your interests also reach into more subtle areas such as religion and metaphysics as well. Even if you normally have little interest in these subjects, you will find yourself feeling curious about spiritual and metaphysical topics. This is an excellent time to read books in any religious, spiritual, or psychic area. Material of a fictional and imaginative nature is also very appealing now. Science fiction and fantasy of all kinds is very attractive to you. Now is the time to break out of your usual, more limited, ways of looking at the world, and to use your intuition to investigate whole new ways of looking at the world and understanding life.

While your intuitive thinking is enhanced, unfortunately your logical and analytical thinking suffers. You make more errors on simple tasks. For example, you can add 3 plus 2 and come up with 6 and continue to come up with 6 even on double-checking your arithmetic. You are a little absent-minded at times during this period, causing errors in routine calculations. By being extra careful with all details, you can avoid misunderstandings and miscalculations that otherwise can cause problems. Whenever any possible vagueness or doubt enters your communications or analyses, take the time to make sure everything is clear. Otherwise, you are likely to discover that there is, indeed, an error.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Mercury

Your imagination is a bit wild at this time. You get carried away with fantasy, fiction, and metaphysical musing. You speculate on everything from why Uncle Bob stutters, why Mary and Bill argue with each other, whether there is life on other planets, the cause of current economic trends, life after death, and how Luke Skywalker can best defeat Darth Vader. Any subject that requires intuition and sensitivity and is not amenable to scientific analysis appeals to you now. Your imagination is much more active and you are less skeptical and cynical than usual.

If you are normally very intuitive but not very good at practical, logical problems, then be careful! You will become so unbalanced at this time that even the simplest logical task, such as balancing the bank book, will be very difficult and exceedingly boring. I hope that you don’t have to fill out your tax return or engage in any other painstaking, tedious, unexciting mental work at this time!

This is an excellent time to read fiction and fantasy or pursue areas of a psychic, spiritual, or religious nature. Movies, plays, art, and music are also particularly appealing. Anything that stirs your imagination is especially exciting for you now. This is also a good time to vacation or take a break from your regular routine. This is the time to step outside of the usual assumptions, logical foundations, and limitations of your thinking. Be extremely careful, however, in making practical decisions and in all business matters! Poor decisions based on inadequate information and misunderstandings are very likely at this time. Even though your intuition is strong, you frequently can’t see what is right in front of you, and you will misjudge others. Misunderstandings in communications are also likely. Carefully analyze and go over all important matters. If there appears to be any chance of misunderstandings or confusions arising, take the extra time to make sure everything is perfectly clear! This will help avoid many problems that otherwise would arise. Also be wary of being gullible or investing too much faith in another person. You can be easily deceived or manipulated at this time.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Mercury

Be extremely careful in all practical affairs at this time. You tend to overlook details, forget to consider some aspect of a problem, and make silly mistakes. Forgetfulness can be a serious problem. For example, you might drive somewhere like the bank and then discover upon arriving there that you have forgotten something such as your bank book. In business negotiations, you forget to ask about certain details, and then discover later that you wish you had. Any major decision, such as a career decision or a large purchase such as a home, is very tricky now because of the large number of factors and possible issues that you can neglect to consider. By taking the time to go over all details, you can avoid a lot of problems and confusions! You may be tempted to trust your intuition, but it is best at this time to also double-check all important matters carefully. You are also somewhat gullible and easily deceived or manipulated now, so be very careful in dealings with others. Avoid any transactions or agreements with persons who seem like they might be somewhat dishonest because they probably are!

While lack of attentiveness and forgetfulness make this time period a difficult one for practical affairs, you can expand your awareness in intuitive areas. Any area of a psychic, spiritual, religious, or metaphysical nature is more interesting to you now than usual. Fantasy, fiction, art, music, movies, and drama are also appealing. Pursue these areas now; they open you up to new ways of seeing the world, and activate your creative imagination. This is an excellent time for learning and exploring new ideas and experiences in any of these areas. This is the time to break out of some of your accustomed ways of thinking and explore new possibilities that you are normally oblivious to. Be careful, however, in making decisions or changes in life style based on your new perceptions and ideas. For example, you may be tempted to adopt a new religious path or embrace a new philosophical perspective on life; wait until a later time to make these kinds of decisions. Now is the time to receive new ideas and explore them, not to make important decisions or commitments.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Mercury

Your intuition is very sharp at this time. Your psychological insight is excellent, and you can better understand what motivates others and what their needs are. You may also read books or attend workshops that greatly add to your understanding of people.

Your increased sensitivity also extends to the arts and philosophical areas as well. Your ability to write and speak with feeling and sensitivity is greatly increased. You are now able to find the right words that capture a subtle feeling that is normally very difficult to convey. Your imagination is also stirred and you can compose imaginative and original works in whatever artistic medium you choose.

This is also a time when your overall understanding of life is elevated. You are less anxious, worried, and concerned with mundane affairs and problems in your personal life and better able to put them into perspective. You may attend a lecture, read a book, or talk to another person that inspires your innate understanding of philosophical, spiritual, and religious values and truths. This is a good time to build habits in your life that will sustain the increased sensitivity and understanding that you now have. Take advantage of opportunities that come to you to expand your intuitive and imaginative mental faculties. Many opportunities come to you during this time period, but you may foolishly refuse to accept them.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Mercury

You are more sympathetic and understanding of others now. You are willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, and you are not as pushy as usual. Even if you are normally very understanding and tolerant of other people’s foibles, you are able to reach a better rapport with others and be less resistant and defensive when others disagree with you or act in ways that are not agreeable with you. This is an excellent time to openly talk with anyone that you do not feel comfortable with and do not have a good rapport with. You can break down barriers with others now.

You are also able to speak and write with greater sensitivity and feeling now. Your imagination is vivid and you are able to find picturesque words and images to convey your thoughts. This is an excellent time for creative writing. It is also a good time for receiving counseling or consultation for issues of personal concern. This is also a good time for any work of an artistic kind because your imagination and sensitivity are high. Philosophical, spiritual, psychic, and religious topics also appeal to you now, and you can become much clearer about philosophical issues and matters of a very broad, encompassing nature now.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Mercury

Mental confusion, mental laziness, ineptitude, vagueness, an inability to focus and concentrate on the immediate task at hand, forgetfulness, and an overall disorganized approach can gain you the reputation of being a little eccentric at the present. Mundane concerns like balancing your checkbook, keeping appointments, and so on are apt to get muddled unless you are extremely careful to use extra caution. Misinformation, exaggerated rumors, or gossip is apt to come your way so try to be discriminating. Don’t swallow just anything. You may find that your dreams are especially vivid or influential in your life right now also.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Venus

Dreamy and exotic feelings overcome you now. You are also hypnotized by glamour, romance, and fantasy. You may dream of visiting a South Sea or Hawaiian island. In fact, you will probably visit fascinating, glamorous, or inspiring places now. Highly imaginative art, music, and theater hold a great fascination for you, and you are likely to purchase more art, and see more movies and plays now than you normally do.

Your dreamy and idealistic romantic feelings make it difficult for you to be rational and objective in any romantic relationship. You either become discontented with the other person because he/she does not match your high ideals, or you idealize the other person, fail to see any faults in him/her, and fall head over heels in love. After this astrological influence wanes, however, you will gradually begin to see the other person in more realistic terms, which is likely to be very sobering! If you fall in love with someone now, try to delay marriage or other commitments to a later time. If you find yourself becoming very discontented in your marriage, try not to be unreasonably demanding of the other person. If the other person is no longer attractive to you, try to honestly and openly discuss the situation, and see what can be done to improve it. Evasiveness and dishonesty are major problems that tend to occur during this time period, so refrain from the tendency to skirt issues and avoid honest communication.

If you are at all spiritually or religiously inclined, you will feel increased compassion and a feeling of selfless concern for others now also. However, others may take advantage of your good will and squander your contributions, so be discriminating in your attempts to help others. Once you find an outlet where you think you can really make solid improvements, then pour your heart into it!@

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Venus

Your romantic relationships undergo changes now. If you are not involved in any romantic relationships now, you probably will be by the time this astrological influence is over. The changes arise because you are extremely dreamy, idealistic, and impassioned in any romantic relationship. You are swept away with your dreamy romantic feelings. If you are married or involved in a romantic relationship, you will either feel a new surge of romantic feelings for the person, or you will become extremely discontented with the other person. Your feelings will swing to one extreme or the other because you simply are not satisfied with anything less than fairy tale splendor and magic in your romantic relationships now.

You readily project your idealistic fantasies on other people. You can fall wildly in love with someone now and fail to see any blemishes in his/her personality. After this astrological influence wanes, however, you will gradually be able to see the other person more realistically, which will be very sobering! If you fall in love during this time period, it is best to delay marriage or other major commitments to a future time.

If you become discontented in your relationship, do not blame the other person for failing to live up to your expectations. Try to honestly discuss your dissatisfaction and try to find a resolution. Be honest! You tend to avoid honest, open communication, and to be evasive and secretive. These tendencies will only aggravate the problems.

You are also inclined to be generous and self-sacrificing at times now. Be discriminating also and be wary of a tendency to get involved with people who lean on you for help, but really prefer to be in a dependent state rather than improve their lives.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Venus

A great deal of illusion, idealism, and fantasy enters into your romantic relationships now. Your romantic fantasies and dreams surface now, and you may abruptly decide to live out some of your fantasies. Your imagination is vivid and you tend to project your fantasies on others so, consequently, you cannot see them in a clear, objective manner. You also tend to be evasive or downright dishonest in your relationships. This combination of factors typically leads to major disappointments and frustrations in romantic relationships.

If you are married or involved in a romantic relationship, you are likely to become very dissatisfied with the other person. Anything short of fairy tale splendor and magic is unsatisfying to you now! Some people, on the other hand, will have a second honeymoon during this time period and find themselves falling in love all over again. You want some magic in your romantic life now, and if you can’t get it, you will be dissatisfied with the relationship. If you are unhappy with the relationship, try to honestly and openly share your feelings with the other person. One of the worst tendencies of this astrological influence is the tendency to be evasive and secretive.

If you fall in love with someone at this time, delay marriage or other major commitments to the other person to a future date. You will only know if this relationship will make a good long-term relationship by waiting until this astrological influence wanes.

This is also a time when your compassion and sympathy can increase dramatically. Spiritual, selfless love can blossom now. Unfortunately, however, others are inclined to take advantage of your generosity and good will now and you can be easily deceived by others. You may also find yourself giving selflessly to those in need but later find that they have made no improvement and have squandered your contributions. Be discriminating now. When you find the right channel for helping others, then pursue it wholeheartedly.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Venus

You are in a loving, generous, helpful mood during this time period. Your values are more altruistic, and you are less concerned with personal gain than you are with making important contributions to life and helping others. You are also able to find outlets for your good will; you contact people and find opportunities that provide you with a vehicle for helping and assisting others. This is a spiritually uplifting time when timeless truths really guide you, and you are less immersed in the little problems, egotistical needs, and insecurities that arise at other times in your life.

You are also more sensitive to beautiful natural settings or pieces of art that you would otherwise overlook. It is likely that you will spend some time at the beach, in the mountains, or in another inspiring or beautiful environment. You also discover new beautiful creative art and music now. Your range of aesthetic tastes and appreciations can broaden and develop greatly now. You are also likely to engage in some creative artistic work now yourself, even if you normally are not inclined to do so.

This is also a positive time for romantic relationships. If you are married or involved in a romantic relationship, then you may experience a kind of second honeymoon now. If you become romantically involved with someone at this time, it is likely to be a very fulfilling and happy relationship.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Venus

Your compassion, sympathy, love, and concern for others is magnified now. Your heart reaches out to others more readily, and you are more willing to extend yourself and offer assistance. If there is someone that you are having difficulty communicating with, now is a good time to break through the barrier between you.

Imaginative art and music also appeal to you now. You will be more involved with the arts now and are likely to discover beautiful and imaginative art works that you haven’t seen before. If you are artistically oriented, you will be particularly creative now. If you are not artistically oriented, you may improve your home decor, or make other artistic enhancements to your life.

Romantic relationships improve at this time. You are in a romantic mood, and you shower additional attention and affection on your mate. If you are not married or involved in a romantic relationship but you would like to be, there is an excellent chance that you will begin a very positive, fulfilling romantic relationship now.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Venus

Disappointments with friends, lovers, or people in general are likely. You are hypersensitive and need much affection, tenderness, and love, but are not actively asking for it. Others’ callousness, clumsiness, or heartlessness affect you more than usual, and you are rather unrealistic in your hopes and expectations of them. You may also be overly adaptable and accommodating in your relationships at this time, enabling others to continue in their bad habits or to take advantage of your unconditional support. Avoid creating relationships based on mutual weakness and dependency or, worse, on deception and hiding. Scandalous behavior which you more or less passively allow to happen should be guarded against.

On a health note, your hormones are apt to be fluctuating; glandular problems are possible. See a health professional if you suspect this. Otherwise, protect your health by being balanced and discreet in romantic and sexual matters.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Mars

Your attitude towards your work goes through some big ups and downs at this time. You become dissatisfied with modest and mediocre progress. Your imagination gets fired up and you dream of grandiose accomplishments. Your current state of affairs seems too modest and limiting. You tend to vacillate between feelings of exuberance and optimism about new ideas on how to reach your dreams and feelings of withdrawal and hopelessness when the obstacles to attaining your dreams seem insurmountable.

Actually this is an excellent time for gaining new perspectives on how to accomplish goals, but not a good time for achieving them! You tend to gamble, overlook details, and have an unrealistic view of what can be accomplished. You are prone to being talked into get-rich-quick schemes and shortcuts to success that do not work.

Your ambitions become more idealistic now. You may become very discontented with your work and not know why you have lost your enthusiasm. The hidden reason is that subconsciously you are beginning to feel the need to be motivated by more altruistic, less personally focused values. Now is the time to begin thinking more about the quality of the service that you provide to others rather than on the personal gain that you receive. The realizations that you come to now can be gradually implemented, giving your work greater meaning and purpose than it currently has.

Physical health is a little more sensitive than usual now. Try to maintain regular exercise habits but do not over-exert yourself and get plenty of rest.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Mars

You approach your work and important projects with an unusual degree of imagination, idealism, and optimism now. Be careful! You are prone to shoot for the stars now, but never get off the ground. You may speculate, gamble, or put all your eggs in one basket. This is likely to prove unwise, however. Your idealism and imagination make you think anything is possible and you project your imagination on the world, overlooking the very real obstacles that are in your way. While it is true that anything is possible, it is also true that your dreams will only come to fruition if you have fully mastered all of the details required to make the dream come true. Don’t hold back your dreams. This is a time to break free of the limited attitudes and thoughts that have kept your accomplishments limited in the past. Develop new perspectives and visions, but be careful and prudent in implementing them. Test the waters before jumping in. You can, in fact, now begin a new path towards achieving your dreams.

Be careful not to be deceived by others. You are more gullible than usual, and there is the possibility of being swept away by someone else’s enthusiasm or being oblivious to insincerities or exaggerations of others.

Physical health is a little more sensitive than usual now. Try to maintain regular exercise habits but do not overexert yourself and get plenty of rest.

Work and important projects undergo difficult changes now. You are likely to feel very frustrated and disheartened at times but don’t completely lose faith and throw everything out the window! This is certainly a time of questioning your values, goals, and directions in life, but try to come to rational decisions rather than act simply out of frustration.

At the root of the changes that occur now is a shift in your personal motivation. You are less ego-driven and personal gains do not hold as much attraction for you as usual. Your car, clothes, cash savings, etc., do not give you as much satisfaction as usual. You may swing in attitude so that at one moment these things seem very important and then a few hours later you do not care about them at all. Even if your motivations are normally of a charitable, less personal nature, you still go through a period of doubt and questioning. You wonder if your efforts are really effective in achieving your intended goals and whether your dreams will really ever be reached. Some people engage in wild speculation, get-rich-quick schemes, or shortcuts to success during this astrological influence, and later regret having put all their eggs in one basket. Do not foolishly speculate. This is the time to elevate your vision, open your mind to bigger dreams, and develop new ideas and attitudes on how to achieve your loftiest goals. But try to refrain from making long-term decisions and commitments now because you are not as stable and realistic as usual.

Be very careful with your physical health now. Try to maintain regular exercise habits but do not overexert yourself and get plenty of rest. You are more susceptible to catching colds and other illnesses so take sensible precautions to prevent this from happening.

Your motivations and personal ambitions become more elevated and idealistic now. You are able to see your work in a better perspective. Rather than focusing on the strictly personally rewarding aspects of your efforts (for example, your income, amount of vacation time, and other amenities), you are more sensitive to the value of your service as a contribution to society. You may read books, talk to others, or have other experiences that broaden your awareness of how your work plays an integral part in meeting the needs of society. This is an excellent time to make changes in your work methods and approaches, so that customers, clients, and other recipients of your work are better served. Because you are now better able to see your services from the customer’s point of view, you are better able to implement changes that make important improvements.

Your sense of spiritual purpose and direction is enhanced now. Your life is put in better perspective and you feel more confident that your goals are well-founded. Any opportunities that come to you now are likely to assist you in improving your work and directing you into channels that are meaningful to you. These changes do not necessarily increase your salary or bring other personal benefits, but they do help you in less tangible ways, as discussed above.

Your approach to work and projects is rather relaxed right now. You are not very aggressive and you tend to give others the benefit of the doubt. If you have a responsibility to manage or direct others, your more tolerant and relaxed approach is likely to work out well, but do not go to extremes as an undisciplined, lax attitude may develop among workers.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Mars

You are more humble, receptive, and less aggressive in your work now. Others are more willing to give you advice and criticism because you are not as rigid and defensive as usual. Even if you normally are very tolerant and open to suggestions, you will still find that at this time you are able to get along better with co-workers and colleagues. In addition to being less aggressive, you are also more sensitive to the needs of others and you reach out to help others more readily. This is a positive time period when you are very cooperative and sensitive to the needs of others. You may also engage in some specific altruistic or charitable work as well at this time.

A period of confusion in which you vacillate between definite action on your own behalf and passivity, weakness, and inaction is indicated. At worst, treachery, dangerous deceptions, and tragic miscalculations or risks are possible. Be certain that all of your actions are as aboveboard and unambiguously honest as possible, and beware of others whose promotional schemes may not be.

Problems with allergies, infections, or a compromised immune system are possible, so that it seems you pick up every virus that comes around. Avoid forcing yourself past your limits or dissipating your energy in any way.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Jupiter

Restlessness, expansiveness, travel, imagination, and philosophy are key issues now. This is the time to spread your wings and explore imaginative new possibilities. Your daily routine, regular chores, and responsibilities are exceedingly tedious and boring to you at this time. You are likely to find yourself becoming very sloppy. You will probably put off washing the dishes, cleaning the house, and mowing the lawn. Your attention is on bigger and more imaginative things. This is an excellent time to travel or take a vacation. You need to be outside a lot too; staying “cooped up” inside is intolerable.

If possible, delay work requiring attention to details to a later time but, if you must do it now, refrain from the temptation to be sloppy and to gloss over important details.

At times you will feel exceedingly lucky, and you enjoy gambling and speculating now. Your luck is, in fact, a little better than usual but you will probably end up losing in any speculation because your optimism and lack of self-control exceeds your good luck. You also have little self-control when it comes to doing most anything. You may go to the store with the intention of buying a few groceries and return home several hours later with your last pay check completely spent!

This is also a time when your religious and spiritual aspirations are inspired. This is an excellent time to visit inspiring places and explore spiritual and religious areas. Your ability to focus is not very good now, however, so don’t waste time trying to force yourself to engage in rigorous practices that are far beyond your current attention span and capacity for discipline.

Speculation, optimism, restlessness, and perhaps downright foolhardiness are key issues now. Everyday life seems drab and dreary to you now, and you explore bigger, more exciting, more exotic alternatives. This is an excellent time to travel or go on vacation. You need to spread your wings. If you stay indoors, you will feel confined and cooped up. Chores and details irk you now, and you are likely to become very sloppy. You procrastinate when it comes to doing chores and it is likely that your home is less tidy and the dishes don’t get washed right after dinner. Be very careful when doing any detail work of importance now because your mind tends to wander from the issues directly at hand, causing inadvertent mistakes and errors.

The biggest problem of this astrological influence is the tendency to wildly speculate. You feel lucky and you are tired of limitations and restrictions in your life; consequently you gamble and take risks. You also lack self-control and you can squander resources in speculation or wastefulness. This is definitely the time to widen your horizons, expand your vision, travel, and discover more imaginative and exciting alternatives to your usual, more limited ways of doing things. But if you gamble on an exotic adventure, chances are you will come out losing in the end. This is a good time to spread your wings, splurge, spend more money than you should, and explore, but don’t go to wild extremes! Avoid pie-in-the-sky offers that promise unrealistic and exaggerated benefits. You may also be tempted to exaggerate, lie, or manipulate your way to greater success. Don’t do it!

Your imagination is stirred and you look at life in much broader, encompassing terms. Religious and spiritual philosophy attracts you now, and you can make great strides in your understanding of metaphysical matters and spiritual truths. However, avoid the tendency to exaggerate and overlook details; you may be inspired and positive in outlook, but inclined to pompous exaggerations as well.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Jupiter

Extreme restlessness and discontent with the limitations of your current situation incline you to speculate and gamble on ways to quickly change your life. There is a strong tendency to exaggerate and put on a front to impress others to gain the advancement that you seek. If you run a business, you are also prone to investing too much money in advertising and other investments based on your hope of rapidly expanding business. Because you want increased business so much, you are unwilling to recognize the obstacles and problems that must first be dealt with. You gloss over details in your infatuation with your dreams and ideals. This time period is best for exploring dreams and ideals but not for practically realizing them! This is an excellent time to travel and vacation. It is also a good time for spiritual and religious pursuits and any endeavor of an imaginative and intuitive nature that takes you out of the limitations and restrictions of your normal daily life.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Jupiter

Your imagination is stirred and you feel inspired, restless, and ready for bigger and better things in your life. You want to break out of your usual routine and explore more imaginative and creative options. This is exactly what you should do! This is an excellent time to travel or go on vacation. You need variety, new stimulation, and a broader perspective now. Get out of your usual routine, don’t stay indoors too much, and have fun exploring. Even small changes, like going out to eat at a restaurant that you haven’t been to before, rather than eating at home, is good now. You need a break from tedious, detailed, or concentrated effort. This is a time to relax, get out of your usual routine, and enjoy exploring imaginative and creative options. You lack focused attention and aggressiveness now. In fact, one negative tendency of this time period is that you can become too docile and expect everything to fall in your lap, without any effort on your part.

Spiritual and religious development is also strong at this time. Your mind is inclined towards broad, speculative issues rather than detailed, scientific study now. Politics, economics, psychology, religion, and any other area that is broad in scope and not completely amenable to scientific analysis appeals to you now. You are more philosophical, and you are likely to feel clearer about issues of a philosophical and religious nature.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Jupiter

You are in a generous and tolerant mood during this time period. You easily forgive others for their faults and are ready to overlook foibles in their personalities. Your tolerant, accepting attitude makes relationships with others pleasant and positive. You are likely to make donations to charitable organizations and be able to help others who are in need. You may give a little too freely and indiscriminately, however, so be careful that you don’t waste time or money on people who are not willing or interested in being helped or who may not use your contributions wisely.

You are in a relaxed, philosophical frame of mind. Matters of broad, general interest such as politics, religion, education, crime, or environmental pollution interest you. Religious, spiritual, and philosophical issues are particularly highlighted, and you are likely to feel much clearer about philosophical or metaphysical issues now.

This is also a good time to travel or take a relaxing vacation. Trips to inspiring or beautiful places are very rejuvenating and spiritually uplifting for you now. This is a good time to break out of your usual routine, spread your wings, and explore more imaginative and creative alternatives.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Jupiter

Inflated expectations, speculation, gambling, or any such risky new ventures are apt to be mostly illusory. You may be attracted to a guru who promises more than will be delivered. Hopes of gain in any arena (financial, spiritual, or whatever) are more likely than actual gain.

A sense of proportion, reasonable limits, and practicality is what is most apt to be missing and, like Icarus, your soaring aspirations may end badly.

On a health note, an excessive accumulation of water and problems with your liver are possible, especially if you eat and drink excessively.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Saturn

A lot of soul-searching, questioning, and doubt about your values, commitments, and the overall direction of your life marks this time period as a critical and difficult one. You may find that you feel less enthusiastic and less motivated than usual, but are not sure why you feel this way. Underlying these feelings are the self-questioning and gnawing doubts about the direction of your life. Some people become severely depressed and confused from this astrological influence, lose faith in themselves, and feel inadequate and lacking in direction.

You may find it difficult to approach your daily tasks with your usual level of enthusiasm. The reason for this decreased energy is that you have subconscious doubts about the ultimate value of your endeavors. Finding some solitude and gaining some distance from your daily life is very helpful now. Do not, however, completely retreat from life and resign from your daily affairs, which you may be tempted to do. This is a time for evaluating your situation in life, your commitments, decisions, and values.

Any old habits that inhibit the attainment of your ideals must be dropped now. For example, suppose that you engage in some unhealthy habits, such as excessive eating or poor diet, and you know that these habits are bad for your health but you simply do not care to tackle the problem. Your weakness of will and unwillingness to face these impediments to your well-being will silently eat away at your self-confidence now. However, you must also be careful not to give up on long-term efforts and commitments just because you are running into difficulty. One thing that makes this time period difficult is uncertainty as to whether you should give up things in your life, and unfortunately there is no simple answer that I can provide you. You must base your decisions on the value and importance of the endeavor and not just on the ease with which it succeeds.

This is a time period when a dose of asceticism will not hurt you and, in fact, may make you feel relieved of a great burden as you “conquer the beast”. If you continue to avoid listening to the inner voice that now urges you to change these habits, then you may find yourself drowning in the habit – for example, eating the worst foods constantly! If this habit continues, you can enter a deep depression, so do not let yourself backslide into a very low emotional state.

You may also experience serious doubts and confusions regarding your religious beliefs and attitudes. Don’t be afraid to question principles that you have held for a long time, and follow a sensible course that feels right to you personally. Don’t blindly follow someone else’s beliefs; you must discover truth for yourself. Also, don’t take yourself too seriously; retain your sense of humor.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Saturn

Be very careful when making important decisions now. Others often do not follow through on their intentions, and it is difficult to bring plans and ideas into practical and tangible form. For example, agreements and contracts of any nature may not be followed through to completion, whether it be to have a home built, to publish your manuscript, to organize an event, etc. If you have strong doubts about an undertaking now, then you will probably find that is best to delay it for a while and analyze whether the undertaking reflects what you really want or if it involves too many compromises. You are at a point in your life when your deepest convictions, beliefs, and ideals are undergoing some changes so it often happens that you are unsure of what you want or you act on things that were important to you in the past but are of less interest to you now.

Regardless of what spiritual or religious beliefs and attitudes you have, or even if you feel that religious and philosophical issues do not interest you, this will be a time when some of your assumptions and basic ingrained habits are likely to surface and change. If you are very ethical or serious about spiritual principles, this is a time of deep questioning regarding your ideals and faith. Do not be afraid to probe deeper and investigate what you have taken for granted for many years.

Any old habits that inhibit the attainment of your ideals must be dropped now. For example, suppose that you engage in some unhealthy habits, such as excessive eating or poor diet, and you know that these habits are bad for your health but you simply do not care to tackle breaking the habit.

If this habit continues, you can enter a deep depression, so do not let yourself backslide into a very low emotional state.

Be very careful in your dealings with others. You may be deceived or led astray by someone else now. If someone does not seem really honest and up-front, then avoid involvement with the person because it is probably true that the “deal” the person offers you is not sincere. Also take care of your health now as physical problems can arise. Regular exercise, but without overexertion, and plenty of rest will help. See a doctor for consultation if serious pains or other abnormal symptoms arise.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Saturn

You have a tendency now to give up on long-term projects and involvements, to change personal habits and religious beliefs, and to feel very dissatisfied with many aspects of your life that seemed satisfactory before. This is a time of deep, inner questioning and changes in deeply ingrained attitudes. Some of these changes may be unconscious, but they are usually evident in the lack of enthusiasm and excitement that you have for the usual things that you love and want. Because your attitudes and values are changing, many old ideals and dreams no longer seem important. If you are religious or ethical or take your spiritual principles seriously, this can be a time of major doubts, self-questioning, and confusion about the things that have been important to you.

Regardless of your philosophical bent (or the lack of it), this is a time when you can make big mistakes in practical affairs. Agreements and contracts of any nature may not be followed through to completion, whether it be to have a home built, to publish your manuscript, to organize an event, etc. If you have strong doubts about an undertaking now, then you will probably find that it is best to delay it for a while and analyze whether the undertaking reflects what you really want or if it involves too many compromises. You are at a point in your life when your deepest convictions, beliefs, and ideals are undergoing some changes so it often happens that you are unsure of what you want or you act on things that were important to you in the past but are of less interest to you now.

This is an excellent time to cut out old habits that you know are not good for you, but you have not had the will power to get rid of. The shift in your attitudes now can inspire you to cut out the excesses. You may find that you can change a bad diet or bad habits such as excessive drinking or smoking now. In fact, you can cut quite a lot out of your life, and some people are inclined to become rather ascetic from this astrological influence. Asceticism helps some people focus their attention on what is really valuable and meaningful to them as they are not distracted by all of the paraphernalia that usually surround them. The need to discover what is really valuable and meaningful is at the heart of many of the changes in your life now.

Take care of your health now as physical problems can also arise. Regular exercise, but without overexertion, and plenty of rest will help. See a doctor for consultation if serious pains or other abnormal symptoms arise.

This astrological influence is subtle in that it might not bring significant changes to your outer life and situation, but it is very significant in the ways that it fosters changes and developments in your fundamental beliefs and attitudes towards life. Whether you consider yourself to be religiously and spiritually oriented or not, your religious and spiritual perspectives deepen and mature now. These perspectives may not be tied to any particular religious belief system or philosophy. You become more sensitized to the broader issues in your life, and you discover appropriate ways to handle them. Issues such as death, birth, different religious and cultural attitudes, ethical issues such as honesty in business relationships, etc., come to your attention now. You may gain a new appreciation of the religious philosophy that you were exposed to in your childhood or on your current religious path. You may now be able to drop what is not worthwhile in the religion or find new meaning and relevance in religious doctrine Natals or customs. These changes are gradual and subtle throughout this time period. However, like a plant or child that grows imperceptibly each day, the cumulative effect throughout this time period can be quite significant. Your sensitivity and awareness to religious, spiritual, and ethical issues can mature greatly during this time period. Do not avoid the growing interest in these issues that you feel at this time; take advantage of this opportunity to deepen and elevate your sensitivities. You are likely to loosen up some of the rigid beliefs and habits that have confined you for some time, and rediscover much of the magic and beauty in life that you may not have experienced since you were a child. Perhaps the greatest benefit that can be derived from this astrological influence is this less restricted, more liberated, more imaginative and creative attitude and feeling about life that can develop.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Saturn

A subtle, but significant, shift in the way you interact with others occurs at this time. You respond to others in a less rigid, stereotyped manner, and you become more aware of each individual’s unique qualities and characteristics. Your intuition is clearer and your sensitivity to others is enhanced, so that you develop a greater ability to appreciate what others are feeling and desire. Even if you consider yourself to be very sensitive to others, you will still find that at this time you break down rigid attitudes, resistance, and limiting, negative, cynical, critical, prejudiced feelings about others. You can see beneath the surface of a person’s appearances and mannerisms and be more sensitive to the inner qualities. This is a time of spiritual advancement and growth when you become more aware of the deeper ideals, dreams, and aspirations that have been guiding you and that guide the people you know.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Saturn

This is a strange and rather unsettling time. Mysterious illnesses which have an emotional or spiritual basis may arise, which compels you to retreat and pull back into yourself.

A vague feeling of discontent, foreboding, or insecurity may prevent you from fully committing yourself to some project or concrete plan. The things you have worked for and have firmly established in your life may be unraveling before your eyes or simply no longer have any meaning for you. Initially you may respond with anxiety, but a more accepting and inquisitive attitude (e.g. “So what now?”) will eventually enable you to get your bearings and discover what you need to do next.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Uranus

Inspiration, eccentricity, and imagination are the key issues for this time period. You come up with wild, creative ideas now. Your ideas are likely to be quite out of character, and you may suddenly feel inspired to take up a new hobby or engage in some other activity that is totally new for you. You are less conservative and cautious in your thinking, and consequently you come up with wild new ideas and hunches.

Scientific studies and the latest technologies also fascinate you. Rather than seeing science as a dry, academic area, you now encounter imaginative inventions and ideas that intrigue and fascinate you. You may also develop an interest in unusual studies such as astrology or numerology. Your political and social idealism is also stirred, and you may become active in altruistic or idealistic social reform.

A big mistake you can make now is to overestimate the practical value of your wild new ideas. While your inspirations now have much merit, they tend to be a combination of science fiction, fantasy, and reality and you tend to have difficulty distinguishing fantasy from reality. Also, your enthusiasm tends to see life in exaggerated and overly optimistic terms. This is an excellent time for artistic creativity, ingenious inventions, and exploration of new possibilities in scientific, social, and political areas, but not for practical implementation of ideas in the business world or in practical applications. Also, daily affairs are often unpredictable now. Strange coincidences or events can change your plans. For example, trips may be delayed or detoured or persons show up or leave at unpredictable times.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Uranus

Inspiration, eccentricity, and imagination are the key issues for this time period. You are likely to feel the urge to do something completely out of character now. Don’t fight the urge. Let yourself be a little “crazy”; this is a good time to break out of your accustomed ways of acting and be more humorous or eccentric.

Your imagination is charged now. Any artistic endeavors are imbued with a new spirit of originality and inspiration. Your thinking is much less conservative and cautious now, and you can tap intuitive and creative resources that will surprise even yourself. Your ability to improvise is especially strong. Don’t restrain yourself; break out of the usual constraints to your ingenuity and creativity.

Scientific studies and the latest technologies also fascinate you. Rather than seeing science as a dry, academic area, you now encounter imaginative inventions and ideas that intrigue and fascinate you. You may also develop an interest in unusual studies such as astrology or numerology. Your political and social idealism is also stirred, and you may become active in altruistic or idealistic social reform.

Be careful, however, in practical affairs. You find it difficult at times to control your enthusiasm about progressive and unusual ideas. However, your ideas tend to be less realistic and practical than you realize. In short, business decisions and career decisions tend to be unrealistically optimistic.

Inspiration, eccentricity, and imagination are the key issues for this time period. You are likely to feel the urge to do something completely out of character now. Let yourself be a little “crazy”; this is a good time to break out of your accustomed ways of acting and be more humorous or eccentric. The child in you is strong now, and this is the time to allow your childlike sense of awe, wonder, and sense of humor to come to the fore.

Scientific studies and the latest technologies also fascinate you.

You may also develop an interest in unusual studies such as astrology or numerology.

Be careful, however, in practical affairs. You find it difficult at times to control your enthusiasm about progressive and unusual ideas. You may feel an urge to gamble or try something different just to see how you like it. This attitude is good when you decide to go to a circus or carnival because you haven’t gone to one in years, but don’t make major career decisions or business decisions with this attitude!

Your imagination is charged now, but you tend to go off on strange tangents also. Your thinking is much less conservative and cautious now and you are able to tap intuitive and creative resources that will surprise even yourself. However, stay away from people that are mentally unstable, using drugs, etc., and if you have a tendency to use drugs, try to refrain from doing so. Even drugs used for medical purposes can alter your state of awareness so much that you will wish that you hadn’t taken them. Of course, if you must take drugs for a serious condition, then do not lower your intake without consent from your doctor.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Uranus

Your idealism, creative imagination, and sense of awe and wonder about life are stirred now. The child in you is strong. You are likely to encounter fascinating information on the latest scientific technologies and progressive social movements in the world that stir your imagination and idealism. This is a positive time for you, when your heart and mind are open to imaginative solutions to old problems. You may become active in some form of political activism. Your ideas are imaginative and idealistic, although perhaps a little too simplistic. You are motivated now by a desire to awaken a higher level of aspiration and idealism in yourself and others, and not so much in analyzing the technical details of problems.

Scientific studies and the latest technologies also fascinate you. Rather than seeing science as a dry, academic area, you now encounter imaginative inventions and ideas that intrigue and fascinate you. You may also develop an interest in unusual studies such as astrology or numerology. This is also an excellent time for any imaginative and original creative work in the arts or music.

New dimensions of reality, altered states of consciousness, and expanded awareness come to you unbidden during this period. You may thus feel quite confused and disoriented, as if there were no solid ground beneath your feet. Things you believed to be true may be seen as merely a facade. You may also wish to turn away from some of the experiences and awareness that you come to now, but there is really no turning back.

Psychic and mystical revelatory experiences will convince you in a direct fashion of the reality of the spiritual dimensions, but beware of becoming too engrossed or otherworldly. Your psychic balance is a bit off, and you need to be able to assimilate these experiences and ground them in your daily life.

Strictly avoid chemical mind-altering substances now, as these will make it nearly impossible to be clear and undistorted while receiving the higher vibrations or dimensions.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Neptune

Your imagination is vivid during this time period and you enjoy fairy tales, mythology, spiritual, religious, and metaphysical topics. This astrological influence is not very powerful and is overshadowed by the other astrological influences in effect at this time.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Neptune

Your imagination and idealism are stirred at this time. Some imaginative or religious activity may come to a completion now. You may make changes in your spiritual and religious orientation now. These changes are rather subtle, but significant, and are not likely to be a source of major concern to you.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Neptune

Some change in attitude towards your ideals and spiritual values occurs now. This change is very inner and gradual, so it is not likely that you will have any great concern or difficulty about these changes. A new attitude toward the religious beliefs that you were taught as a child is very likely to develop now.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Neptune

A maturing of your ideals and spiritual values occurs now. This maturing process is so gradual and natural that you will hardly notice it, but it is significant. You become less ego-centered and more sensitive to the needs of others. Consequently, you behave in a more mature manner. Other people, books, and life experiences assist you in deepening your awareness and sensitivity; take advantage of these resources and opportunities.

During this time period you will lose your enthusiasm for some of the things that were exciting to you before. Your old favorite music or favorite places to visit may not be as exciting to you. You may feel uninspired by your usual routine on Sunday mornings, whether that is sleeping in late, going to church, golfing, or anything else. You need to make some adjustments in your values, your ideals, and spiritual aspirations. Making radical changes at this time, however, may lead you to something less suitable to you then your old ways. You have to make some subtle changes that will open new doors for you and advance you to a more mature sensitivity and appreciation of life.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Pluto

Your personal feelings, attitudes, and ideals undergo changes now. These changes are very deep, and experiences from your early life that you have forgotten about long ago are likely to surface. You are also likely to often feel overcome with unusual feelings and have no idea why you are experiencing these feelings. A wide range of feelings, such as nostalgia, euphoria, optimism, anger, or jealousy may surface.

This is an excellent time for involvement with self-development practices and workshops, psychotherapy, or spiritual, religious, and metaphysical practices. Dream analysis, hypnosis, meditation, yoga, trips to inspiring places, and psychological treatments (whether it be gestalt therapy, primal therapy, etc.) can be greatly illuminating now. Of course, be discriminating and choose the methods that are most appealing to you; some are much better and more appropriate for you than others. The reason these activities benefit you so greatly now is not because you have more problems than usual. It is because you are in a period of inner, psychic transition and transformation where you are motivated and ready to make significant changes.

The changes that occur now can have a variety of effects, such as dropping bad habits (overeating, excessive smoking, or drinking, etc.), overcoming lack of self-confidence or limitations resulting from early relationships to parents, increased creativity and imagination, development of psychic abilities, and a new spiritual perspective or religious path.

The reason these activities benefit you so greatly now is not because you have more problems than usual; it is because you are in a period of inner, psychic transition and transformation when you are motivated and ready to make significant changes.

The changes that occur now can have a variety of effects, such as dropping bad habits (overeating, excessive smoking or drinking, etc.), overcoming lack of self-confidence or limitations resulting from early relationships to parents, increased creativity and imagination, development of psychic abilities, and a new spiritual perspective or religious path. However, negative consequences are also possible, particularly if you become involved with extreme, fanatical spiritual groups. You can become zealous, but also irrational and unbalanced.

Your personal feelings, attitudes, and ideals undergo changes now. These changes are very deep, and experiences from your early life that you have forgotten about long ago are likely to surface. You are also likely to often feel overcome with unusual feelings and have no idea why you are experiencing these feelings. A wide range of feelings, such as nostalgia, euphoria, optimism, anger, or jealousy may surface. You may even be frightened by the intensity and irrationality of your own feelings. You may repress the feelings, but this will only cause the feelings to build up with greater intensity. You must have the courage to acknowledge the feelings and have enough inner strength to allow yourself to release the feelings in a positive way and try to redirect any negative feelings in a positive manner. This is easier said than done.

This is an excellent time for involvement with self-development practices and workshops, psychotherapy, or spiritual, religious, and metaphysical practices. Dream analysis, hypnosis, meditation, yoga, trips to inspiring places, and psychological treatments (whether it be gestalt therapy, primal therapy, etc.) can be greatly illuminating now. Of course, be discriminating and choose the methods that are most appealing to you; some are much better and more appropriate for you than others. Avoid extreme and fanatical methods that try to overpower you. Intensive inner work benefits you now as long as it is done in a wholesome, sensitive, loving manner with the help of experienced, well-balanced people. Even if you feel that the changes you are undergoing are positive, you may feel that you there is no reason to get involved in specific psychological or spiritual methods. This may be true, but don’t try to avoid the issues at hand either because this is a time when you can make tremendous progress in refining and improving your deepest emotions and attitudes.

Tremendous psychological and inner growth takes place now. Although these changes may not have a great effect on your outer situation, they are very important and beneficial. Elimination of deeply ingrained negative attitudes is possible. Your deepest fears and self-doubts surface, but they do not overwhelm you. If you lack confidence, have bad personal habits that you wish you could erase, feel pessimistic that your dreams will never come true, or have little sense of magic or purpose in your life, you can make great strides during this time. Even if you do not have these problems, you can become much clearer about what you really want out of life, and how to make your dreams come true. What makes this time period important is that you are spiritually and psychically charged and ready to make fundamental changes in your life and reach for the highest star. You are not likely to reach the star now, and as mentioned earlier, your outer life may not change a great deal. But your attitude changes, and this starts you on a more solid, clearer path to your goals.

This is a good time for increased involvement with matters of inner development. Psychotherapy, dream analysis, yoga, or any number of psychological or spiritual methods are likely to become a part of your life now, as you clear out old negative attitudes and replace them with fresh ones. Take advantage of the opportunities that are available. This is a time of emotional and spiritual renewal, but it is up to you to make the most of it.

Tremendous psychological and inner growth takes place now. Although these changes may not have a great effect on your outer situation, they are very important and beneficial. Elimination of deeply ingrained negative attitudes is possible. You are now able to see factors in your early life with your parents that have shaped your current personality. You are also able to communicate about matters of a delicate nature.

Your deepest fears and self-doubts surface now, but they do not overwhelm you.

Deep forces in the collective are at work, which you may experience as a subtle dissolution or disintegration of beliefs, attitudes, and attachments. These changes are profound, yet rather gradual. Nevertheless, adjustments and resistance to relinquishing the old can be stressful. Spiritual renewal through inner exploration, service, and a concern for external values is the most positive possibility at this time. If you are not so inclined, however, this can be a distressing period during which a subtle, chronic unease or disease plagues you.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Ascendant

You are more concerned with bringing high ideals and noble purposes into your life now than you are with gaining personal recognition or personal gain. You are more tolerant of others and less pushy. In fact, you are very impressionable at times and you tend to idolize others who exhibit the kinds of qualities that you aspire to. If you normally tend to be a follower rather than a leader, you are likely to be led astray now by magnetic or domineering personalities. Do not become so meek that you cease thinking for yourself! Because you are impressionable now, you may also find it difficult to make up your mind about what you really want to do with yourself and what you really want out of life. If you can keep from becoming confused or overwhelmed by others, then this can be a time when you find ways to express more of your ideals in your daily life and become a more tolerant, helpful person to others. Be careful, however, in making practical decisions as you tend to project your ideals and fantasies on situations and fail to see some of the basic flaws and problems.

Be very careful and circumspect about any new relationship that forms now. You are likely to form new relationships of both a personal and business nature that you have high hopes for, but you are likely to eventually become disappointed by these relationships. You tend to project your ideals and fantasies on others now, and not really see them objectively and clearly. Others can easily deceive you. You are likely to meet people whose sincerity and honesty you have serious doubts about, but you are inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt. Avoid commitments and dependency on these people as they probably will have the bad traits that you were concerned that they have!

You are inclined to be very self-sacrificing and giving now. Situations may arise where you find that you are able to contribute to people who are very needy, and you feel the urge to give selflessly without concern for reimbursement. This experience can help you “store up gold in heaven” and be very positive, but do be careful that the people you help really benefit from your service and do not squander your contributions.

You meet people at this time who are very imaginative and idealistic. Artists, visionaries, quacks, and “nuts” of all sorts seem to pop up wherever you go. Some of these people inspire and uplift you, while others are deceptive, untrustworthy, and unreliable. You must have the mental clarity to distinguish the good apples from the bad ones.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Some adjustments in the way you express yourself and treat others are required now. Others may complain that you are not sincere with them, or that you are too domineering or passive or unfair in some respect. You may also find yourself feeling the need to approach others about the way they express themselves and treat others. This is the time to evaluate whether you are guilty of any hypocrisies, insincerities, or laxness in expressing the ideals and beliefs that are important to you. You may find yourself feeling disappointed in others or losing confidence in yourself but do not allow yourself to wallow in self-pity and negative feelings. Instead, try to see clearly where changes are needed and make them. You can find ways to be more sympathetic, understanding, and honest now and break old habits of indifference and negligence to others.

You encounter people now who are very considerate, understanding, and nonjudgmental. You are also likely to form relationships with people based on a deep level of mutual appreciation and understanding for each other. You are in touch with your more sensitive, spiritual qualities, and you are able to express a greater level of sensitivity and greater empathy than usual.

At this time you are more psychically and emotionally receptive, impressionable, malleable, and easily influenced. Your stamina and resistance to outside forces are less vigorous than usual, which can manifest in various ways: succumbing to viruses more often, being overshadowed by more dominant personalities, or a lessened ability to sustain a clear and forceful defense against attacks of any kind.

Choose your environment very carefully now. Chemical or environment pollutants, negative or troubled people, dissonant or excessively loud music, noise, smoke, and so on disturbs you more than usual and may affect your health detrimentally. To the best of your ability, try to keep your environment and daily life as simple, clear, organized, and peaceful as possible.

Major changes in your career occur at this time. You are in a transition phase where you are more concerned with really bringing your ideals and dreams down to earth and implementing them in your life. You are likely to feel that your current employment involves too many compromises. You may decide to change fields and go into an area that is more service-oriented. You are willing to sacrifice personal income and benefits for a life style that is more meaningful and better suits your ideals and aspirations. This astrological influence causes some people to abandon a secure, stable job for a more unusual, creative alternative. You may decide to make a business of your favorite hobby. The driving motivation behind the changes you make is the need to express your higher ideals and to be active in areas that are meaningful to you – even if personal sacrifices must be made.

This time period is usually a difficult one because your dreams and ideals are likely to seem unattainable. If you try to kid yourself into thinking that they can be easily achieved, you may find yourself giving up the benefits of your current job in exchange for a life of struggle. On the other hand, continuing with the compromises in your life becomes increasingly difficult and eventually causes you to feel very dissatisfied, bored, restless, lacking in self-confidence, or lacking a sense of direction and purpose in life. This is the time to begin shifting your work and career emphasis more towards the things that stir your imagination and appeal to your loftiest aspirations. If you do not underestimate the challenges that face you and if you do not allow yourself to become discouraged, you can make strides in making your dreams come true.

A shift in moods and attitudes occurs at this time that will continue to affect you deeply for many years to come. You are emotionally and psychically very sensitive now, but often it is difficult for you to clearly express what you are feeling. Matters of an inner, religious, or spiritual nature become increasingly important, and this is a good time to deepen your involvement with religious or spiritual practices. Do not pursue an overly intellectual approach to these matters; an increased intuition and heightened emotional sensitivity is more important. Quiet times alone are good now. Meditation, beautiful music, prayer, or imaginative artistic activities appeal to you now and help you get in touch with the inner sensitivity that is awakening within you, mostly on an unconscious level. You are likely to have some extraordinary dreams. Writing these dreams down can help you remember them and understand their meaning and message.

Practical affairs do not tend to go very well now. Be careful to scrutinize all important matters and try to ensure that all affairs are handled honestly, fairly, and with reasonable expectations. There is a good chance that you will experience major disappointments or disillusionments with family or close friends. Strive to be honest, understanding, and sympathetic but, at the same time, be wary of the tendency to get caught in a situation of trying to help someone who is neither interested in nor willing to receive your assistance. Deep, hidden problems or insecurities tend to surface now in yourself and close friends; care and sensitivity is needed to best handle these problems and concerns.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Changing attitudes and doubts about your career and overall situation in life can eat away at you now. This problem is particularly strong if you have not been honest with yourself, kidding yourself about where your current life is leading you, or ignoring your dreams and ideals because you feel they are unrealistic. Your loftiest dreams and aspirations surface and assert themselves now, and you are likely to find yourself daydreaming about winning a lottery or sweepstakes so that you can freely pursue your dreams, or being “discovered” so that you have a wider audience for your talents.

Because your actual circumstances are likely to be very different from your ideals, you can become increasingly dissatisfied with your life, begin complaining and ignoring all of the solid progress that you have made, and become less appreciative of the wealth of good things that you have to be grateful for. Try not to let the disparity between your dreams and your actual circumstances cause you to become depressed, but rather seek creative alternative methods to practically make your dreams come true. Even a modest improvement is better than no improvement at all.

Be very careful in all practical affairs as you are apt to incorrectly assess a situation or be deceived by others. Try not to let your fantasies and ideals cloud your vision; you tend to project your ideals on every situation, whether or not the situation is directly relevant to your personal dreams and aspirations.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Your approach to your work and career is highly imaginative at this time, and you come up with interesting, creative ideas. Your intuition is excellent and the imaginative changes that you introduce now are likely to work very nicely. You are also more service-oriented and sensitive to the needs of others. You are less biased by your own personal goals and needs, and you are better able to see how your contributions fit into the bigger picture. The only negative possibilities from this astrological influence are that others may take advantage of your generous, self-sacrificing nature, aggressively thwart you, or capitalize on your lax, idealistic, tolerant attitude to their advantage and your detriment.

A spirit of cooperation and shared ideals imbues your career pursuits with a satisfying, inspiring quality now. Supervisors, employers, employees, and co-workers show that they will extend themselves and make sacrifices “when the chips are down”. Consequently, your work and career gain a greater dimension of meaningfulness and importance to you. This is an emotionally and spiritually uplifting time when you feel that you are working together with others for a noble purpose. The events that occur are probably not dramatic and you can easily overlook their significance, but they are very important. This is a good time to seek the cooperation of others for any noble cause. You can gain the cooperation of others to improve the quality of service, develop greater concern for customers and clients, or to raise the morale of colleagues.

This is also a time when you can discover more imaginative, creative, colorful solutions to problems. Your intuition is excellent now and the imaginative changes that you introduce are likely to work out very nicely.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Midheaven

Your career goals and overall direction in life shift during this time. If you have been excessively selfish, narrowly ego-driven, or in any way dishonest, this is a time of great insecurity, meaninglessness, and lack of confidence. Even if you are scrupulous, you will need to beware of swindlers, deception, or erroneous rumors which can lead to economic or professional collapse. Disappointment and disillusionment with mentors, employers and/or parental figures is also quite possible.

On the other hand, you may turn to an entirely different profession at this time, one that draws upon your interests in spirituality, the supernatural or higher forces, unselfish service, or charity work. Talent in entertainment or artistic fields also surfaces now.

The only possible drawback here is that you tend to be a bit unworldly or impractical right now. Try to be balanced. That is, don’t quit your job in favor of using your imaginative, artistic, or psychic gifts unless you have some solid backing.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

At this time you nurture and care for loved ones and family members with heightened compassion and devotion. You may be feeling rather sentimental, loving, tender, and affectionate toward your mate, children, parents, and friends. Your desire may be to create an ideal domestic condition or environment where peace and harmony prevail. You must, however, try to be objective and realistic over family concerns and not allow your imagination and fantasies to influence your every thought and idea. When dealing with the emotional needs and issues of loved ones, you are highly impressionable and vulnerable at this time. For example, you could be swayed into misplacing your sympathy or be easy prey for someone who entraps you into a victim/martyr situation. Creative, parenting, and caretaking desires are also stimulated during this period. Thoughts of having children or becoming enchanted by the idea is possible. If you do have children, you may be their best promoter at this time. This would be a good time to give them inspiration or assist them in developing their creativity and their artistic and educational talents.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Ceres

Family and domestic affairs may involve troublesome and upsetting conditions during this period. You may have disagreements or misunderstandings with your loved ones, children, or a mate surrounding issues of parenting, nurturing, and caretaking responsibilities. You will need to be very clear and above-board with family members regarding your limits and boundaries, as you can be subject to exploitation or self-sacrifice if you unknowingly place yourself in a pushover position. There could be an urge to avoid, retreat, or escape from the harsh reality of family problems and concerns. It is important to remain alert to any behind-the-scene activities and hidden influences which could affect domestic harmony and stability. A child, loved one, or romantic partner may be reluctant to share their troubles and difficulties with you, yet they may need your acceptance and sympathy just the same. If you have children, you should avoid being irresponsible or unrealistic about their emotional, creative, educational, and caretaking needs.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Ceres

Domestic, love or family affairs are subject to challenges and misunderstandings. There can be delusions, disappointments, or misplaced emotions and perceptions in the domestic scene or in a close relationship at this time. You may become enticed by or coaxed into a self-sacrificing or vulnerable situation with a loved one, mate, or child. You can be highly susceptible to emotional undercurrents and vibrations in your family and love life; however, you may have trouble discerning between illusion and reality. Nurturing or parenting instincts may be misguided or exaggerated. Your own needs for love, caretaking, reassurance, and acceptance may be taken out of context or exploited by others. You may become very confused over prevailing family matters which are ill-defined or seem to escape your understanding. For example, a mate, child, or other family member may have unusual or oppressive emotional needs and demands which alters the state of affairs in your domestic world, yet you get only vague or speculative insights into their problems. You should try to set clear and definite boundaries for loved ones and children in the hopes of restoring emotional equilibrium and peace of mind.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Ceres

You are touched by the emotional needs and desires of your mate, children, and other family members at this time. You can easily tune into other people’s feelings, moods, and vibrations which gives you a chance to provide them with greater acceptance, consideration, and sympathy. You could win over loved ones with your inspirations and thoughts of domestic harmony and peaceful co-existence. A soothing, dreamlike and imaginary vision of parenting and nurturing others may overcome you now. It is very important to do a reality-check every now and then during this time period, as you can get carried away with your perceptions. It would be a good idea to put some of your creativity and ideas into practical schemes. For example, you may enjoy giving children or a loved one incentive and insight into better ways to improve their educational, spiritual, or artistic/creative interests during this time.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Ceres

You may engage in selfless and compassionate acts with regard to loved ones and family members at this time. Emotional sensitivity is accented now, and you desire to demonstrate your care, concern, and devotion to the people you love. As long as you do not allow yourself to be taken advantage of, then your good deeds will create positive influences on other individuals. You may also develop a deep understanding of the plights and sorrows of other people, which gives you a strong desire to heal, aid, and assist them in a time of need. Your pleasure is derived from helping, nurturing, and mothering others at this time. You will want your children or mate to feel soothed, cared for, and protected from the harsh realities of life. Creative urges are stimulated as well. There may be a desire to have children or to be involved in an educational, creative, or caretaking role with children.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Ceres

You may experience disappointments, delusions, or tension in your domestic or romantic life at this time. There may be a lack of clear understanding regarding your emotional needs, as well as those of loved ones. You might need to make sacrifices and deny some of your own needs in order to attend to pressing family or partnership issues. A realistic and objective view of loved ones may escape you at this time. You could feel forced or coerced into a nurturing or caretaking role which is uncomfortable and ill-defined. You may also take on responsibility for another person’s problems which you later regret. If domestic or relationship conditions are less than ideal, you must set up new boundaries and limits at this time.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Pallas

Mental creativity and imagination is stimulated during this period. Schemes, plans, and endeavors may develop seemingly out of thin air. This is a good time to use your insight, intuition, and inner guidance to promote an awakening of your creative, spiritual, or artistic yearnings. You can also be very receptive to music, poetry, and aesthetic influences in your surroundings. Discovering new strategies, concepts, and thought patterns may be easier in a peaceful and tranquil setting. A disorganized or chaotic environment at work or in your personal life will not encourage productive and practical thinking.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Pallas

Strange or dreamy thoughts may be accented at this time. You could feel rather foggy and confused now, which causes impractical and unrealistic thinking patterns, ideas, and decision-making. Musical, spiritual, artistic, or creative pleasures would be safe areas for you to pursue, rather than detailed, intellectual, and mental endeavors during this period. In either your personal or professional life, you could come across a shady or dubious individual. You could easily fall prey to another person’s schemes or deception. You should also be careful in romance and relationships now, as impractical thinking and emotional fantasies can leave you prone to disappointment or disillusionment in your love and personal life.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Pallas

You may experience frustration because of worrisome or abstract thinking at this time. Mental confusion and an overactive imagination may lead you to feel hypersensitive and moody. Due to negative thinking, you may fret over unrealized dreams, ideals, and plans, yet, at the same time, avoid practical and real responsibilities or ambitions. Indulging in romantic, musical, spiritual, creative, and artistic yearnings could be helpful now; however, you should avoid using them as an escape route from the harshness of everyday difficulties in life.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Pallas

You may find pleasure in creative, artistic, educational, or religious pursuits at this time. Hidden talents can bring you success and achievement if you take this opportunity to awaken them. Poetry, music, and art could make a deep and lasting impression upon you during this period. You are emotionally sensitive to your immediate surroundings and environment and can easily absorb any stimulus or influences now. Fantasy, however, also may allure you and could put you in a dreamlike or romantic state of mind. Tapping into your motivation may require focus and attention; however, you can accomplish some real and fantastic achievements through your imagination and insight at this time.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Pallas

You may have some inspirational and creative plans which you could put to practical use at this time. Insights may come through dreams, inner hunches, and heightened intuition now. You can be deeply touched by music and poetry, as well as aesthetic or spiritual aspirations during this period. Seek out an ideal environment or a tranquil setting in which to gather your ideas, thoughts, and dreams. Sentimental and romantic notions can be quite alluring now, and if you are involved in a love relationship, you may view your partner in a very idealistic manner at this time.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Pallas

Practical thinking and decision-making may be impaired during this time. Subtle impressions and perceptions you absorb from other people or your surroundings could be very inaccurate or misleading now. For example, you could become infatuated with someone who in reality is unavailable yet you still perceive this individual romantically, as being nearly perfect. Or you could believe someone is hiding something from you, such as information or some behind-the-scene activity, and later on you may discover you were totally wrong. Absentmindedness or naive thinking may cause you to blurt out a secret or confidential matter, as well as misrepresent yourself to others in some way.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Juno

If you are married or in a significant love relationship, you may experience great compassion, sensitivity, and romantic devotion to your loved one at this time. Married or not, you could envision an idealistic, dreamy, or exaggerated perception of love, marriage, and commitment now. You may be charmed, coaxed, or enticed by the emotional vibrations and feelings you pick up from your partner. If the appeal and attraction is mutual, your relationship may be positively influenced. However, emotional vulnerability may leave you susceptible to exploitation or self-denial if you are not careful now. You might become temporarily spellbound or have very ill-defined expectations regarding your partner. If you are unmarried, you should take a realistic assessment of any new or long-term relationship before making a commitment or tying the knot.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Juno

Unusual situations may develop in a marriage or love relationship during this period. Irregular behavior and hidden activities such as clandestine involvements, drug and alcohol use, or obsessions are some of the more serious issues which you may be exposed to at this time. Although you may be more impressionable and vulnerable now, this does not mean you would necessarily fall prey to every infatuation or negative behavior. A spouse or lover might be giving mixed signals, but in actuality nothing may be happening behind the scenes. An overactive imagination or weird, unexplained feelings on your part may be distorting the truth. This period can also characterize a time when minor problems or slights in a relationship are exaggerated or taken out of context. Misunderstandings, misconceptions, and disappointments may be due to increased hypersensitivity and emotional game-playing in your relationship. If you are presently unattached, you could be susceptible to strange emotional involvements and promiscuous behavior. If you suddenly choose to marry, make sure you see this person in a realistic light before you do so.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Juno

A love or marital relationship may involve problematic and puzzling conditions during this period. Worrisome, irrational fears and unresolved misunderstandings may be creating havoc in your love life. You may totally avoid confronting real or negative issues in your relationship. However, you may tend to exaggerate or dwell upon superficial problems and flaws. Passivity/dominance issues may also arise now, leading to confusion over roles, game-playing, and manipulation. You should try to work with your mate on restoring trust, positive emotional relating, honesty, and compassion for one another. Avoid making excuses or trying to rationalize your predicament. If you are unattached, you may seesaw between feelings of idealized romantic notions and unrealistic fears or doubt about the institution of marriage at this time.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Juno

Romantic fantasies, dreams, and illusions about love and marriage emerge at this time. If you are married or in a committed love relationship, this period can stimulate your compassionate, devotional, and emotional urges. You may be more gentle, kind, and tolerant as well and are apt to overlook your mate’s flaws and weaknesses. You may still envision idyllic conditions in your relationship, even if this is far from the truth. A negative or long-standing issue may be resolved through forgiveness and acceptance at this time. Sharing creative or aesthetic pleasures, such as music and poetry, or artistic enjoyments would be uplifting to your relationship now.

Transiting Neptune sextile Natal Juno

Loyalty, compassion, and self-sacrifice are key relating tools for you in a love or marital relationship at this time. You desire companionship, affection, and romance and may look for ways to enhance these qualities in your relationship. Tender feelings, sentimental yearnings, and dreams of everlasting love can make you wish to settle down or commit to a long-term relationship. If you are already married, you will be very generous, tolerant, and forgiving of your spouse at this time. Since you may be very accepting of the ups and downs in your marriage, it is likely that trust, faith, and commitment will reign during this period.

Transiting Neptune quincunx Natal Juno

Emotional undercurrents, as well as unconscious dreams and memories, may affect love or marital relationships during this time. There may be subtle changes in your perception of a mate or lover. Feelings of uncertainty, fears of deception, or hard to define conditions in your love life can preoccupy your thoughts at this time. Subconscious emotional baggage, psychological hang-ups, or negative habits and attitudes can create upsets and disunity in your partnership. Similarly, emotional insecurity could have you vacillating between craving attention and acceptance or withdrawing and wallowing in self-pity.

Transiting Neptune conjunct Natal Vesta

Your emotions and feelings are apt to play a major role in your work or creative projects at this time. You can become very sensitive or emotionally involved in your plans and ambitions now. There could be a strong need to channel your inner resources into something meaningful and productive. You may retreat into work or an interest which stimulates your enthusiasm, inspirations, dreams, or fantasies. Drawing out your creativity and imagination may require focus, dedication, and commitment. Working behind the scenes or solitary endeavors would be more appealing to you now. You may like having an air of secrecy surrounding your projects, aims, and intentions during this period.

Transiting Neptune opposite Natal Vesta

There may be confusion over work responsibilities or a personal ambition at this time. Work efficiency may suffer as procedures and objectives are subject to changes, difficulties, and intrigue. Wool-gathering, daydreaming, or negligence on the job is possible during this period. You may lack incentive due to problematic conditions or misconceptions concerning your employment. You may feel that some of your co-workers or professionals at your workplace are trying to exploit your abilities or take advantage of you. You may encounter work situations where you must be more subservient or self-sacrificing or which put you at a disadvantage.

Transiting Neptune square Natal Vesta

You may become caught up in fantasies or illusions about your work or employment at this time. You might dwell on impractical ideas and interests rather than getting down to hard work. Doubts, fears, and uncertainty concerning your own abilities or feeling unclear as to what kind of work or project could spark your enthusiasm is likely now. You may become captivated with a new interest or hobby which tempts you to escape from work which you find boring or unsuitable. Or there may be situations in your job where you question the objectives of co-workers or professionals. For instance, you may doubt the integrity or truthfulness of persons in your workplace and imagine or perceive all sorts of deception or behind the scene activities taking place. Since most of your feelings may be speculative, you should avoid making any major changes or disruptions in your job at this time.

Transiting Neptune trine Natal Vesta
