Neptune Stationing Retrograde sends a surge of spooky shamanic Neptune rays into the atmosphere, conjuring up magic and ghosts. There are nebulous goo-goo psychic rays all over the place.
It is super energy for divination, psychic work & magical synchronicity. A soul atmosphere pervades many a relationship as this is officially an astro-signature of soulmates. But it’s also unrequited love, potential delusion and a shocker of a time to get drunk or do Neptunian substances. Peeps are highly sensitive. It is ultra-deluxe astro-weirding. Engage intuitive powers at full strength & beware Lower Neptunian types. They’ll be way more off-planet than even their usual shifty little grifting strange selves. Keep a grip. Do haute Neptune. Observe your heightened dreamscape!
“Neptune presides over the oceanic realms of dreams, imagination, vision and myth, inspiring in us the poetry, art and music that bring conscious kinship alive in our community. The Zulu word for sleep is butongo which means ‘the state of being one with the star gods’. When we sleep, we restore our memory of kinship with higher forces.
But when we enter the illusory waking world, we forget. One way to carry the memory of kinship into the waking world is through the arts. The earliest word for dream (from the Old English word drieman) also meant to make music, which invites the notion that making music is a way of dreaming the world into being. Neptune is the part of us that sleeps, dreams, creates myths, then makes music and art to bring those myths alive.”
Neptune stationing Retrograde is not super-important in itself – Neptune spends nearly half the year Retrograde. But the 48 hours around this event are magical and also when you need to be on guard against any slippery tendencies.
