Neptune will be passing through Pisces
for several more years,
so the effect is certinaly NOT yet
visible or clear.
Neptune’s function is to erode
your hold on reality in the area
in which it falls in your horoscope,
encouraging you to surrender
your previous fixations on
what you think reality is all about.
No sense claiming
it is only your spirituality emerging.
Although that is true,
Neptune usually also reflects
your deepest, escapist, fantasy craving
to blur your pain
with distraction after distraction.
It can also seduce you to follow
your most distorted projections
about what you are doing here,
why you are here and
whereyou are going.
It is your soulful dedication,
and marks the period when you must
fling yourself forward,
allow yourself to be carried
by what you are convinced is happening,
only to learn later that something
utterly different was actually transpiring.
It can never be second guessed or figured out,
mianly because it describes
the many sides of a prism
that can only be viewed
in many dimensions at once.
To even attempt such a perception
we are forced to give up
our vision of a three-dimenional world
and acknowledge the fact that
there aare many levels and posisbilities
occurring at the same time and space.
The western mind balks
when challenged to think prismatically.
Our fear of being fooled,
along with our desperate longing
to not be considered crazy,
creates a resistance to the subtlety
that lurks behind Neptune’s inexorable
unraveling of everything we thought to be true.
It invariably presents an existential crisis,
forever hinting that something initangible
and just out of reach is going on,
demanding your absolute faith
but promising nothing in return.
It suggests ecstasy
and delivers disappointment,
causes abject despair,
only to follow by manifesingt a miracle.
It often shows up in your life
represented by people
who are there but not there,
people who are not all there,
mad musicians and sad-eyed poets,
wild-eyed mystics and magicians,
pathetic junkies and sexy hustlers,
humble healers and fraudulent clerics,
It’s the semi waking state
that makes you swear
aliens were in your room last night.
The first sip of the second martini
when even the sweaty,
It’s a voice you cannot be sure
comes from the mouth of God
or the mental patient
you run into on the street.
It usually denotes
your longing for something to be true,
whether it is or not.
It’s the ability to find beauty in ugliness
and to venerate the fiction
that is life.
In that sense it is the most
It is the sand in the hourglass
that measures the greatest illusion of all
It’s the long shot that comes in first,
provided you don’t bet on it.
Wherever you have it transiting
in your Sun or Rising sign,
throw the book away and accept
a force that is not a force,
a wave that is not a wave,
a vibration that is not a vibration,
a message that is not a message,
It’s an elbow in your cosmic ribs
to wakeup and start dreaming.
ONLY WHEN YOU UNIFY
CAN YOU SOLVE
THE MYSTERY OF NEPTUNE
And as for the horoscopes....
No matter what sort of wily, crafty,
keen-eyed, survivalist you are,
you can be just as much of a sucker
for love as the rest of us fools.
Although romantic love is probably
the greatest illusion of all,
when Neptune moves forward
in your whole sign fifth house,
you need an adventure,
wherever it leads.
It may not be age or
life condition appropriate,
so it may have to remain
in the realm of fiction
or spiritual yearning.
You have to blind your eyes
to a whole lot
(kids on drugs etc),
but you are challenged
to allow heart to rule.
