Larks & Owls

The Siesta by Frederick Arthur Bridgman

Neptune going into Pisces may very well bring the return of the luxurious nap.
I’m a night owl…you ?

Using magnetic resonance imaging-guided brain stimulation, scientists (click) tested muscle torque and the excitability of pathways through the spinal cord and brain.
They found that morning people’s brains were most excitable at 9 a.m. This slowly decreased through the day.
It was the polar opposite for evening people, whose brains were most excitable at 9 p.m.

Evening people became physically stronger throughout the day, but the maximum amount of force morning people could produce remained the same.

I have experimented asking people if they are larks (am people) or owls (pm people) by looking at their charts.
I have speculated on planetary placements and emphasis above or below the horizon, the position of Neptune and Moon (sleep) and their aspects.   At this time, my results are across the board.

Insomnia can be indicated by hard aspects to Moon, Mercury, Mars, Uranus or Neptune in the natal.

Mars superpowers what it transits with energy, restlessness.
Mercury transits can indicate increased nervous tension.
Uranus transits indicate a sudden change.

If any or these transits are in hard aspect to Moon or Neptune – it may disrupt your sleep patterns.
Dreams are Moon, Neptune and 9th house (Sagittarius) or higher planes of thinking and traveling.

So in that case, siesta !
I love naps.  Neptune most highly aspected, Moon exalted in Taurus, with the majority of my planets in the south. 
(Near the mid-heaven or noon).

Are you are an early riser…?… or a night owl ?
How is your Neptune for sleeping and dreaming ?

sweet dreams~

  1. I’m a night owl. Mess with me first thing in the morning and you’ll find yourself facing someone in a towering snit. When I was at University, we used to have a 9am lecture on simultaneous interpreting, and our lecturer used to bemoan the hour, saying that his 2pm class performed far better than the lark starting time of our lecture.

    • I have worked early shifts, and yes, the sunrises are beautiful, but I find my energy around 9 or 10 pm. I can go to bed at sunrise but to get up before sunrise goes against my grain. My neighbor is a real early riser, and is partial to hammering, car parking, blowing and once mowed the yard at 8am on a Saturday – wth ?! – you have GOT to be kidding me ..!
