Subscribers will soon notice the ramping up of Mars-Neptune square alerts – don’t worry, if you don’t know the drill, you will be reminded. Stand by.
But i just want to also share an example of Super-Haute Neptune, as it’s all too easy to dwell on the lying, grifting, addict-delusion-zombie end of the Neptune spectrum.
Also, given that we are all going to be – ready or not – doing Neptune these next few weeks, this would be a good guy to make the acquaintance of or even re-read. Robert A Johnson is an amazingly cool Gemini Jungian scholars, probably the most accessible of all the Jung writers out there. He’s definitely soothing and inspirational to read.
He writes about relationships, reclaiming your shadow self, the essential masculine/feminine principles, anima/animus – the Everything. The bulk of his books are here on his Amazon page but i am currently reading Inner Work, it is sensational.
“The unconscious manifests itself through a language of symbols. It is not only in our involuntary or compulsive behaviour that we can see the unconscious. It has two natural pathways for bridging the gap and speaking to the conscious mind. One is by dreams – the other is by imagination. Both of these are highly refined channels of communication that the psyche has developed so that the unconscious and conscious levels may speak to one another and work together.
The unconscious has developed a special language to use in dreams and imagination; it is the language of symbolism. As we will see, inner work is primarily the art of learning this symbolic language of the unconscious…To get a more true sense of who we are, become more complete and integrated human beings, we must go to the unconscious and set up communication with it. Much of ourselves and many determinants of our character are contained in the unconscious. It is only by approacing it that we have a chance to become conscious, complete, whole human beings.
Jung has shown that by approaching the unconscious and learning its symbolic language, we live richer and fuller lives. We begin to live in partnership with the unconscious, rather than at is mercy or in constant warfare with it…
The purpose of learning to work with the unconscious is not just to resolve our conflicts or deal with our neuroses. We find there a deep source of renewal, growth, strength and wisdom. We connect with the source of our evolving character, we cooperate with the process whereby we bring the total self together. We learn to tap that rich lode of energy and intelligence that waits within.”
Okay so Mr Johnson was born May 26 1921 and yes, he is still alive, happening and writing. He is Sun-Mars-Mercury in Gemini and has Neptune in Leo sextile his Mars. So voila, a haute Mars-Neptune man as well. Moon in Capricorn and Saturn-Jupiter in Virgo opposite Uranus in Pisces.
So if you’re thinking god do i have to meditate and “be good” the whole time Mars is squaring Neptune, the answer is no. You can Jung out and do some inner work. Remember, your dreams know when you are taking note of them and become more lucid. Like performers with an audience who is appreciating them.
