This is fantastic science !
Uranus rules both science and pattern design.
Mollusks are underwater muscle animals, or Mars (muscles) in Neptune (seas).
Video by marine biologist Roger Hanlon, senior scientist at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. He studies camouflage in cephalopods: squid, cuttlefish and octopus.
They are masters of optical illusion.
Mercury is sight; Uranus second sight.
Camouflage is Neptune ruled and we have 5 planets and Chiron in Pisces, including Mars which is defense.
When cephalopods are startled, ink is deployed – their decoy tactic to escape – decoy is also Neptunian. When operating high qi – 12th or Pisces Mars is a Jedi Mars, only defense – not attack.
I love the thoughts this conjures – yes conjures – for Neptune is High Magick.
Pisces are feeler-sponges reading the environs subconsciously 24/8. Squid do not sleep (maybe they are in permanent Alpha or relaxed focus state) which is why they have developed this supersense psychometric (? sci doesn’t know) ability. They are color blind – sight, perception (Mercury rules) touch (Venus rules) have evolved into higher octaves; Uranus and Neptune, respectively. Their ability to blend, morph and warp-distort pattern design (Uranus) is brilliant.
The same is true of those with strong Neptune/Pisces energies – be aware of what you touch. When shields are down, you innately soak up the vibrations of the surrounds in order to camouflage yourself. Flex those psychic muscles, build your shields UP, boundary set. Only carry your own energy, do not let barnacles encrust on you.
Cephalopods, which first appeared 500 million years ago in the Upper Cambrian Period, are also fascinating because they have three hearts (Sun rules the heart) that pump blue blood, they’re jet powered, and they’re found in all oceans of the world, from the tropics to the poles, the intertidal to the abyss.
Pic above is Paul the Octopus (hatched in 2008, died October 2010) who successfully divined the outcome of 11 out of 13 football matches – read about him here. Neptune rules divination. Cephalopods are very intelligent, with well developed senses and complex nervous systems. In humans, Gemini/Mercury/3rd house rules the nervous system – Uranus is the higher octave of the nervous system, the aura.
Cephalopods also sense by statocysts that act like internal gyroscopes so they can sense gravity – if they go upside down their bellies are unprotected leaving them extremely vulnerable. They need to re-orient themselves much like people with strong Neptune and Pisces energies.
If you have lost your center, get your bearings – remember what personal abilities and attributes ground you in happiness and light. Keep your ability, your talents in the center of your mind, in your heart and on your tongue.
Define personal parameters, boundary set, identify and delineate goals, set yourself to work. Only carry your own energy, do not let barnacles encrust on you – nor should you encrust on others.
Dream it – then be it – through grounding your self. Focus on working your ability -learn it, hone it until your talent has produced tangible results. Start small and get larger if need be. Water dreams need earth to manifest on the physical plane – ground.
The schizophrenic is drowning in the same waters in which the mystic swims with delight. Edgar Cayce made the same observation in his readings.
::: Joseph Campbell :::
Some cephalopods bioluminesce, shining light downwards to disguise their shadows from any predators that may lurk below. Bioluminesce means light released by the energy of a chemical reaction. Neptune rules chemicals, Sun rules light.
Neptune is the light bearer for the spiritual sun, how apt cephalopods have 3 hearts (Sun rules) and chemically bioluminesce. Tolkiens elvish (Neptunian) phrase May it be a light to you in dark places when all other lights go out takes on a new meaning here, yes ?
Heads UP 12th house Suns engage your spiritual bioluminescence.
To know light – one must also know dark.
Suffering leads to transcendence through struggle and spiritual growth.
Seek the lesson that dwells in the pit of your pain. The underbelly. What is secretly locked inside festers – look at it, – LOOK RIGHT AT IT- realize it does not define you, or your spirit. Only YOU define YOU. Transmute your pain into personal power. Your pain, your past, only has power over you if you let it. Be rid of it, once and for all. Forgiveness and compassion are your greatest gifts. Be gentle and kind with yourself.
