The last few days may have felt as though you need to rest more frequently. This might have something to do with the fact that Neptune (rules sleep)and is stationing retrograde on June 9 at 12:49 pm, Pacific Time, at 7° Pisces 35′. It goes direct November 15. However, I find it much easier to get things done when the outer planets are in retrograde motion often allowing us to catch up with the visions (in the case of Neptune, we are dealing with visions) of the last seven or eight months.
Neptune has a lot of bad press in modern literature. Spacy, flaky, dazed and confused are mental states often attributed to Neptune. However, Neptune can also be inspired, intuitive, imaginative and quite psychic. In fact, the modern Spiritualist movement began when Neptune was discovered in the late 1800s. With Neptune hanging out for another eleven to twelve years, it is important to work with this energy rather than fight it. Embracing something like meditation, a yoga practice, a painting class, a water aerobics class that honors Neptune helps balance out our very hectic lives.
After the Moon crosses Saturn in Scorpio on Tuesday, June 10 and enters Sagittarius on Wednesday June 11 at 8:23 am pacific time, things feel like they lighten up. The Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 12 close to the Galactic center at about 22° Sagittarius promises some out of the blue insights offering answers to questions that had no answers up to that point. Grounding ourselves as the week finishes and then applying our sudden insights into a workable solution come about on Saturday June 14 as Mars and Pluto square each other. Taking actions on choices you’ve made and taking responsibility for those choices are the highlight at the end of the week. Happy Father’s Day to all Dads, men that are like Dads, and to the Dads who have passed and still watch over us.
