Have you been feeling a bit off recently? Are you a little tired, not as productive? Even a little depressed? Here are some insights as to how the cosmos may be affecting you.
Saturn and Neptune are squaring off. Remember a square occurs when two planets are 90 degrees away from each other. When Saturn forms a challenging angle to Neptune, we may experience depression. It is an internalized anger reaction to the “no” response to what we want or are trying to accomplish. Or, imagine this, it is bucket of ice water thrown in our face that cruelly awakens us out of an incredible dream. Ouch! When Saturn squares Neptune it is not saying no however. It is saying not now. The best advice I can give you currently is to keep your emotions out of your business dealings!
And now for some background (“Not something completely different”). I love obscure references ;-)
Saturn began to square Neptune in mid-May and forms an exact square with Neptune on the 17th – the second in a series that first came in November, 2015. When Saturn turns direct motion on August 13th, it begins to apply back to the square to Neptune. The exact square hits for the last time on September 11th. This energy will have stuck with us for much of 2016.
Saturn and Neptune represent opposite concepts. Saturn is all about karma, reality and obstacles. Neptune is dreamy and fantasy filled. We must ask ourselves if we are being realistic at this time. Some feelings of disillusionment can come now as our dreams and ideals can be put to the test. Questioning our faith in our dreams can lead to lack of follow-through or wasteful activities and avoidance of responsibilities. Ideally, this crisis leads to a realignment of material goals and spiritual ideals as we assess what is truly meaningful to us. Financial restrictions may seem to block our plans, or we could feel a sudden lack of inspiration. Be wise with money right now, don’t over extend credit.
We might be forced to face issues we’ve been avoiding or putting off, or deal with addictions, money drains, and other behaviors that have been dragging us down. Sacrifices may need to be made in order to gain materially or spiritually. It’s important to simplify and detoxify, but also reach out to others for support and guidance. Over the coming year, it will be important to take a hard look at our addictions, fears, and attitudes that have us chained to situations and that keep us from growing.
This is a time to stay away from fear and doubt. Let other people have their reality. If what others say and do does not fit with your reality, move on. If you have great ideas for projects, keep them to yourself right now so the doubters and nay-sayers can’t cast aspersions on your creations.
Create your reality and have a magnificent week. Please remember to laugh. And, as always thank you for your likes and responses. I appreciate it.
