NepTuning the Quads

photo 54Vibrational Energy Oracle

Those who frequent GMA know Neptune is a big player in my natal – even those two not directly involved with Neptune are involved with my 12th house sign, Sagittarius.   Like all planets/placements – working high qi it’s a blessing; low, a curse.

Neptune is  F  A  R     O   U   T
Hiccup here.
Most of us will experience Neptune transiting in (roughly) only one half of our chart, those who live to over 100, Neptune will transit through roughly seven signs.  These quadrants are where we will experience focused Neptune experience.

I will obviously be writing more later, on the quads and Neptune – this a quickie lunchtime post + food for thought.

The cards chosen are pointing towards each quadrant.

SE: houses 10,11,12 – first card above

As Above, So Below
Whatever is in heaven is also on Earth – Perceptions, interactions and a foot in each world – Beliefs.

SW: 9, 8, 7 – second card
photo 55Knowing – Instincts attuned to the world around us – seeing, listening, receiving messages on all channels and acting upon them – Guided.

NW: 6, 5, 4 – third card
photo 57
Hopeless Release  Perception of hopelessness, to everything a purpose, a season.  Release without despair – Balance.

NE: 3, 2, 1 – fourth card

photo 56
Abundant Blessings – Sowing what you have paid forward, be open to receive blessings with gratitude – Reaping.

Seems I won’t ever tire of strange feet pics/posts, eh ?  Weird foot pics is de rigueur, Aqua on Venus ruled 2nd, Venus square Neptuner in 11th.  My tastes in art runs the gamut from the sublime to the ridiculous.

I have been working more at my day job, wacky hours, less posting and now my lingering foot issue has worsened.  Neptune rules feet; Aquarius, ankles.

I am having an issue with my right ankle and it shows in my transits:
T. Saturn on biggie Neptuner in Scorp 11
T Neptuner square natal Mars in Sag. T.
Uranus direct applying square to Prog Mars in Capricorn in 11.
Prog Moon in Aqu square Mercury in Scorp.

Here is where it gets frustrating – Neptune loves to play hide and seek.

Neptuner in hard aspect is a test between delusion, illusion – – healing, transcending via healing arts.  Health wise, Neptooney makes misdiagnoses and hard to pinpoint symptoms/cures very likely.  (I have already had weird migrating foot pains this year – very odd – I reiki, they wander.) 

My natal Neptune is under (hard) square (in fixed signs) indicating not only stress, but also that I am facing something I avoided in a past life.  I know there is much I am still processing from this life as well. 

Psychosomatic: emotional and mental stress manifesting in the body.
In every chart, there is always a way out of difficulty, both in the natal and by transit.

In my natal I have plenty of Plutonic energy to shapeshift.
Currently T. Uranus is trine my natal Mars in Sagittarius by the backdoor.

I am off to do some shamanic work, rogue reiki, sound healing, etc….

If I am not posting as much, you know why. 
I am off to sculpt my emotional, mental, physical, spiritual healing across all dimensions of space and time via Plutonic energy.

Look to Scorpio & Pluto in your natal for where you can shift your metamorphosis into high gear.

There must be something strangely sacred in salt. It is in our tears and in the sea.

Khalil Gibran

There is a sacredness in tears.  They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.  They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.  They are messengers of overwhelming grief . . . and unspeakable love. 
Washington Irving

This post is for those of us who have to drag ourselves through the holidays.

In my world: first hurdle – selling, second hurdle – lush holiday, third hurdle – hormone fest, fourth hurdle – buying.  My reward for crossing the not finished line is the month of love and old anniversary while I am single.  Okay, yeah, whatever.  yee HAW

I know many have it worse, I am fully aware of that.  I am often my own worst problem and I am fully aware of that also.  Saturn Rx ruler in Aries 3 equals roadblocks of the mind / actions. I KNOW it, I SEE it (Saturn trines Sag Mars in 11) happening . . .so I percolate and stew on the issue – until PoP !   Action comes in a rush ~>

Lately I have been struggling with the sauce again.  I haven’t mentioned it because my mother reads this on occasion, who knows who else.  Well, now she knows, you know.  Everybody knows. 

There is a reason I call myself Neptune girl – Neptooney is the source of major lessons in my natal – suffering and transcendence; sensitivity and deception.  Artists deliver hard lessons over and over. Fame is nearly always a factor, as is music.  The surprise gain and subsequent loss of love, fame and infamy, villans and heroes – are all laid upon my astrological banquet table.

I divinate in every way I know how because it is the only way I have found to survive the stress shocks.  Forewarning is necessary so that I may fortify – force myself into lock and load deal with it mode. 

Thus I have tuned Neptuner in some ways to my advantage – yet make no mistake – this slippery fish is ever changing and elusive.  She is the siren and the shipwreck. 

I have written about alcoholics and natal aspects here.  I figured I might backslide, it’s common – go sober awhile – get cocky, I can handle it now.

Yeah, right.
Neptune squaring Leo – self deception is the crowned King. 

…yet, I know things happen for a reason, and I have a few ideas…

The Neptune in Aquarius years were particularly horrific for me.  My natal Neptuner squares Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo 8th; Neptune transit Aquarius means it opposed Leo as well.

So when Neptune went retrograde, dipped into Aquarius one last time – of course the Aquarian re-appeared, threw me for yet another love loop – stole my heart (and that’s not all) then vanished.
 I regain a bit of equilibrium (Libra MC), am making progress here – cue new hero, new gains followed by new loss, shiny new suffering and new lock down status in order to deal and process.
This loss I have taken hard.
This one is exceptional, magnificent, the dovetailing, sublime.

I remember writing when Neptune was about to go retrograde back into Aquarius, thatwe had forgot something and we had to go back and fetch it.’
 It just flopped in the brain pan and I went with it.  How true it turned out to be, that Claircognizance / Preception thing I get was spot on.

This whole time I was taking clematis flower essence from flowers I gathered on the last Pisces Full Moon in Aquarius. Clematis promotes practicality and reality.  Did it help ?  Considering past Neptooney transits and love transitions, yes, it helped.

Good Goddess, the irony. 
That last total solar eclipse was conjunct my natal Neptuner, so I figure North Node approach is right on time.  Have I flushed all the Scorpionic Neptuner 8th house squares from my system. . .? 

Unlikely, but I am getting there.  

Mercury sextiles Jupiter from Libra 9th at MC, so I write and Write and WRITE in order to GET RIGHT, ya dig ?

be careful out there
with all best wishes for
health, happiness, love and peace of mind . . .

New name is a cosmic joke, really
Leo on the regenerative 8th house
makes me laugh, I’m keeping it.

the breaking

It took me forever to write about the 6/12th houses for good reason.  Neptune is a big player in my chart.  It is not easy to admit I feel and likely inflict the pain, surrender and sorrow of the 12th.  Twelfth house Neptunian energy silently emerges and recedes, it is seductive and filled with illusions and dreams.  It is a part of me I have to accept.

Not suitable for realistic Saturnian audiences.  Most excellent movie material though. Aeons of heARTwork across herstory is testament to pain and suffering brought to life and transformed by the creative urge to manifest human desires.  One way or another desire will find a way to spill, stream and rush itself onto the material plane.

Is creative genius always the product of profound suffering . . .?

My Neptune lives in Aqua 11 and I don’t  KNOW.
Neptune shrouds the answer from me. 

Neptune in Aquarius had all the romance of an electric eel winding around my heart.  I haven’t looked up PTSD symptoms, not yet.  Pretty sure I’ve got them, and I’m not ready to know just now.   Part and parcel of living with Sun/Ura/Pluto.

I am drowning in deep waters, in the mineshaft of my 8th house. Neptune surrounds me again by opposing my late Leo Venus/Jupes by transit, while natal Neptune squares them.  This Neptune Rx is the last clearing out of the dross of the painful Aqua years, I am surrendering to the feelings of loss, grieving . . . and releasing it. 

Progressed: Uranus is rightontop of my Venus with Pluto on standby – the whole mess opposes prog Saturn Rx (my natal ruler).
Transit Uranus is applying to conjunct prog Saturn by transit.

I don’t have anything witty, humorous or genius to share, right now I feel empty.
Just another turn of the wheel, it will pass, like all transits do. . .

SoOo . . . I am Virgoing out, canning tomatoes, keeping busy, I will sing Peter Jackson’s praises later this Labor Day weekend, I don’t know when. 

I am metamorphing just like everyone else, and it’s painful, just like I knew it would be.
Still I keep the faith.

Saturn rules spiders, they build.

I am careful not to destruct their webs while walking through my yard.
I just sit and watch them spin, they fascinate me.
Building.  Always building.  Work, work and more work.

Spider, my yard

Spinning all sorts of webs, not just orbs like you see pasted up in Halloween windows,  but funnels and string lines with lassos, all sorts of designs to suit the purpose.
I wonder how many webs a spider spins during their life ?  How many times does their masterpiece get wrecked to the point it is better to leave it and start over on another one ?
Pluto is wrecking ball my Saturn right now.

Asheville, NC artist.  Please, forgive, too many years ago to remember.

Neptune is opposing my Venus Jupiter conjunction in the 8th, and I want to build art.
I want the materials and tools (Mars) in my hands.  (Saturn in Aries 3rd, trine Mars in Sag)
I love to work with my hands (Gemini 6th).  I love leatherwork.  (Saturn rules me and leather)  I love the way it smells and the way the wrinkles in the hide feel underneath my fingertips when I lace it with sinew.  (Toro Moon 4th)

It’s dead, and I’m Plutonic.
Skulls, bones, feathers, hides, skins, rocks, crystals, quills, furs, twigs and sticks, axes and arrowheads are all over my place.  Death is a part of life.  I get the feng shui, and I practice it my way.  The dead stuff stays.

I’m pretty Uranian too with Neptune waterfalling all over my chart from the 11th and Uranus/Pluto conjunct Sun in the 9th.

I’m self – taught in many areas, I prefer it to classes, tests and schedules.
What I want to learn, no school around here teaches anyway.
