frogsnailSnails will only thrive where the atmo is clean and clear.
Pretty sure Dom mentioned this in Wild Things… don’t ask me which episode ..!?

Snails are super sensitive and directly in contact with all they touch through their skin. 
They are watery moist animals ruled by moon (and in my opinion) also Neptune.  Yes, I know that seems a bit counter intuitive as land snails and salt are a deadly combo, but there are salt-water snails like the conch for instance.  So yes, also Neptune.
Skin is Saturn, sensitive skin is Aquarius.

My Neptune is in 11 (natural Aquarius house) opposite (peace talks) Moon in my natal. Dealing with tons of public (Moon) is draining (Neptune), even if the public is sweet as pie.  I am an empath, a receiver.  Whatever they carry, I also end up carrying a bit of it.

– Recently my day job has been super busy and I have been feeling it.
– I missed a personal (private) deadline (though I was previously warned over 10 years ago I would, I did my utmost to avoid it) I freaked out, and broke out in a rash (hives?) started peeling like a freakin lizard.
How’s that for a Uranus Pluto transit ? I’m moulting.? really ? wtf !
– The last foray into Middle Earth, very bittersweet.
– My anti-anxiety meds (yes, nerves: I have Mercury at MC and Uranus elevated conjunct Sun/Pluto) were cancelled by my pharmacy (why ?!) and I have been days getting that straightened out.
– No meds = stomach (moon) issues
I finally got them last night, took two and slept for 10+ hours. yesYesYES

Neptune is the giant sponge of the zodiac.

If Neptune (or Pisces) is in contact with other outers only aka Uranus or Pluto you predominately feel it as a generational member.
eg. all late 60’s born have Uranus conjunct Pluto, those born now have the square

Neptune in contact with the socials aka Jupiter and Saturn means you will feel it when in large groups or when dealing with society at large.

Neptune in contact with the inners aka Mercury, Venus, Mars means you feel Neptune when you communicate, love or take action – with – young people, women and men, respectively.

Neptune in contact with the luminaries aka Sun or Moon means you mainline Neptune as part of your spirit or emotional life 24/7.  Your self and instincts are light bearers for the spiritual sun.  Conscious and/or subconscious are feeling the tuning fork always.

Planets with Neptune contacts or planets in Pisces will feel the mystical powers of the planet of visionaries, artists and healers.  Use the power of Neptune wisely. 
Speaking of Dom, he has Sagittarius Sun conjunct Neptune and look at all he does to educate humans about wild animals, brilliant !

Here’s a bit on Neptune rulership to give you a better idea.
Read the short descript of the symbolic meaning here, speaks volumes.

Gneiss Moon
ps. 1 Orli, 2 Mercury in Capricorn, 3 Saturn into Sagittarius
Please bear with me, I know I am behind.  This is my one day off and I am obviously working.  Thank you x

ps. 2 Just realized I have been without my usual allies for around two weeks when my mother had surgery.  Misplaced my fave feldspars: Rainbow Moonstone & Labradorite.
I’m a Capricorn rising (stones/earth).  More on crystals here.

Amnesty International

Amnesty is rooted in the greek word amnestia (amnesia stems from the same root). Amnesty is a pardon extended by the government to large groups of people.

Neptune rules Pisces, the 12th house of imprisonment.
Neptune is suffering and transcendence.

Pardon and forgiving is Venus, the stem.

Higher octave is Neptune, the root.

Venusian (personal) love is a stem of the cosmic root; Neptune (source) love.
We are here to grow on earth, branch from the root, learn by experience.

Earthbound love – I HAVE unBALANCEd DESIREs  
(you are mine, I am yours)

Cosmic love – I BELIEVE that LOVE creates HARMONY.
(justice is Just Us)

Venus rules Libra
Saturn (Karma) is exalted in Libra, bringing Balance to the Scales of Justice.

Equalization :: Love and Harmony

Mitakuye Oyasin
All My Relations
One Tribe


When imprisoned, immobile, the sworld catches your attention.

I left that misspelling…because that is exactly how it is.
When the worlds swirls . . . minutiae beckons.

Desperation (Saturn) meets innovation (Uranus).
Cosmos (Pisces) meets (Virgo) microspace.
Seconds of divinity are plucked from an ocean of time.

Squares to Pisces land in the houses of travel (ouch); trines are in water – metamorphosis (Scorpio) through caring (Cancer) for another life.

Piscean prisoners seek awareness, compromise, redemption, through the (reflection/opposition) of Virgo.

Balance through Opposites
The Wound and the Healer.
Isolation and transcendence.
The prisoner and the pet.

Virgo rules pets.
Have you ever thought about how many inmates in prison stories have pets..?

– Bird Man of Alcatraz
– Brook’s crow, Jake in Shawshank
– Mr. Jingles the mouse in Green Mile
– Litmus pet mouse in Escape from Alcatraz
– Max’s cat in Midnight Express

Spider freely spins a microcosmic sworld – while the prisoner, trapped… watches, contemplating his micro sworld.  Each separately building one moment on top of another and another and another and another and another.  They become friends passing the time, doing their daily routines (Virgo) together.
Helping each other heal.  Pisces / Virgo axis.

Life is Life.
All life deserves respect, the freedom to live, explore and seek happiness.



Venus rules forgiveness and navels – entering.
Neptune rules accomplices, meditation, third eye – departure.




foot follies

The groOovy thing about tons of planets in Pisces is the deader than a hammer sleepfests night after night after night after night.

The not so groOvy thing about tons of planets in Pisces is yammering outta bed at silly o’clock trying to gain vertical while tangled in blankets to do the footcramp boogie.

You know what I’m talkin’ about.
heh.heh…dontcha ?!
Talk about a rude awakening !

Neptune rules Pisces rules feet.
Mars rules pain.  Uranus, spasms.

Mars nears Uranus from late Pisces.
Eat your bananas !

nite all & sweet dreams
peace out

Harmonics & health

Shannon Novak

Music, in the absolute sense, is the invisible geometry of the cosmos, a delicate tracery of frequencies that harmonise with each other and from which all matter manifests.

Pretty cool, huh ?  Sacred geometry of musical notes.  I have been on about sacred geometry here before…fascinating stuff.  You can click the Novak link above and play a few notes and see more visuals / music.

Really hits up my multi – Virgo / mega – Neptune sense of harmonics and health.
Music, bells, the human voice, spoken word, intonation of sounds, chants – all in order to create harmony on the cellular level.  Awesome.

This strikes me as a very Uranian (scientific) way to implement Pluto (metamorphosis) via Neptune (divinely inspired music).
Especially as Neptune is once again swimming in the spiritual seas of her home, Pisces (healing).

The universe is infinitely complex – forms brought forth from the simplicity of ONE.

How cool is that ?!

Planets orbit in sacred geometrical patterns (Venus pentagram), life corresponds to the golden mean, our DNA spirals – it makes sense that to properly use music is to heal from the inside out.

Pick your planetary problem, tap a Tibetan bowl, let the metamorphosis begin.
At the very least, we’d get our zen on…

all the hemispheres

The Other Side of Time Freydoon Rassouli

All the Hemispheres

Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadows and shores and hills.

Open up to the Roof.
Make a new water-mark on your excitement
And love.

Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
And giving
Upon our intimate assembly.

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.

Greet Yourself
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
Back home.

All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire

While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of

Translated by Daniel Ladinsky ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hafiz (1320-1391), born Shams-ud din Mahommed, was a Persian sufi poet. He studied poetry was in the Sufic Order of Dervishes and was an interpretive professor of the Koran.  He knew the Koran by heart – leading to his pen-name, Hafiz, or ‘one who remembers’.

His poetry was wild for his day – love and wine and enjoying life, he rejected Sunni law, causing him to be banned.  He was a free – thinking heretic, wildly popular in his lifetime.  When it came time to bury Hafiz – authorities questioned if it would be allowed on sacred ground.

By this time his poetry had become so famous that his works were used for divination.
(I mean really ~ how cool is that ?!)

The authorities consulted his work for the answer of burial.
Turn not away from the bier of Hafiz,
Steeped in sin, he will enter Paradise.
Hafiz was buried in the center of a cemetery in Shiraz.


Neptune rules memory as well as poetry, divination, and dance.
Could not find birth info ~  but Neptune, lots of Pisces and Neptune, yes..?

…words like waves…so lovely…
I needed this today.

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.
Click here for more on your chronotype.  Chronos is time, or Saturn.  Sleep cycles are built around rhythms in our bodies, light, food intake, blood pressure and sugar all determine our personal rhythm, our body clock.

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~

Venus (love) in Pisces (inspiration, devotion) is conjunct Neptune (memory) in Aquarius (the awakener).

Mercury (words) is trine Jupiter (optimism, faith, charity) in Venus -ruled earth sign Taurus (self-worth).

Mercury (thoughts) are quintile (gifts and talent from spirit) Saturn in Venus-ruled air sign Libra of harmony.

Venus (love) is trine Saturn (tact, rocks) in Venus – ruled Libra the balancer.

There are  changes and hard aspects in our skies with ourselves & others.
Beware .?

Be aware of LOVE.
yes !
