“People who are grabbed and taken away by the red shoes always initially feel that whatever substance is that they are addicted to is a tremendous saviour in one sense of another. Sometimes it gives a sense of fantastic power, or a false sense that they have the energy stay awake all night, create until dawn, go without eating. Or perhaps it allows them to sleep without fearing demons, or calms their nerve, or helps them not care so deeply about all the things they care so deeply about, or maybe it helps them not want to love and be loved anymore. However, in the end, it only creates, as we see int he tale, a blurred background whirling by so fast that no real life is truly being lived. Addiction is a deranged Baba Yaga who eats up lost children and drops them off at the executioner’s door.”
The passing of Amy Winehouse has made a whole heap of peeps think more about addictions and the lure of Neptunian substances.
The astrological Neptune is the desire for transcendence, connection with Source, art, beauty and a whole host of things. You may merge with Neptune in all manner of ways (dreamscape, music, meditation) but as we all know, there are also Neptunian substances offering a quicker route… albeit a slipperier comedown and/or a degree of psychic damage.
Neptune morphs back into the late degrees of Aquarius in just a few days but consider the Neptune in Pisces season that has been April till early August to be a premonition.
Interesting that Neptune in Pisces began with the passing of Elizabeth Taylor – a highly Neptunian diva with her own well-documented battle with booze & other substances – and A.W went just last week or whenever it was.
Ponder as to what April to August bought you in the way of nebulous insights, ghosts, and spiritual realisations. The Neptune in Pisces era begins properly in early 2012.
It’s also interesting as practically everyone i know has had a spike in Neptune activity since April but is around-about-now actually vowing to find more healthful ways of raising their consciousness. So many peeps have been getting on it but are literally considering going straight edge.
The Neptune In Pisces era is going to see some wild polarity in this regard.
