The Multiple Virgo Neptunian Aquanaut

Filed in Virgo

Sylvia Earle

Sylvia Earle is unbelievably cool.  The marine biologist/explorer/activist is about to enjoy her Uranus Return (that is when you are 84) and maintaining a crazy-rad schedule of work, planet-saving, talks, consciousness raising, study and so forth.

This is her Twitter, here is her Ted talk and voila her 2014 documentary Mission Blue.

Also cool: that she is a multiple conjunct Virgo with NEPTUNE in the mix. Ms Earle has Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Neptune and Lilith all conjunct in Virgo.  That’s a lot of Virgo – she has even more than famously over-the-top productive Goethe – and such a beautiful expression of Neptune strongly aligned with such personal astrological energies.

She blends the work-ethic of hyper-Virgo with Neptune compassion & clearly has a deeply spiritual connect with the ocean.

“Ten percent of the big fish still remain. There are still some blue whales. There are still some krill in Antarctica. There are a few oysters in Chesapeake Bay. Half the coral reefs are still in pretty good shape, a jeweled belt around the middle of the planet. There’s still time, but not a lot, to turn things around.”

  1. Neptune = big, idealistic, compassionate heart
    Virgo = a plan in search of a higher mission
    Equals a great and potentially world-changing combination, on the good days (the haute Virgo, high Neptune days). On low days: stuck-in-a-rut emo hoarders?

  2. Hmmm, I was watching a short video on the principles of light and learned that the vision humans have, the construction of th eye and the part of the spectrum we can see was configured originally from our time living under the water.

  3. I love how food-shaming is ok here. If you can be vegan, awesome. Not everybody can. I used to be before i became horribly allergic to everything. Fish is one of the few things i can eat and i don’t even like tuna.

    • Food is a personal issue. I don’t think food shaming is what is happening here. I certainly have no problems with eating meat or dairy or fish or sacrificing vegetables and fruit. It’s all the same to me. It’s more about being sustainable, cruelty free, thoughtful of the consequences of our eating habits no?
      Sounds like a difficult situation for you with those allergies, hope it improves.

    • I do think fish is food for humans. Always has been for coastal indigenous communities.
      Aside from the way we fish we do another silly thing and that is to feed it to cats. Fish is not a food cats would eat naturally. There’s a few million tons a year, fed to domestic animals.
      I watched that Cowspiracy doc the other day. A really stunning statistic was that when they calculated the weight of all animals and humans on the earth.
      Humans around 9 % of the weight
      Domesticated and farmed animals 89%
      Wild animals around 2 %
      I’m not sure if fish were included in the stats.

    • Stating a fact about the environmental consequences of certain choices is just that. Stating a fact.

      If I had said, you are horrible person for doing this, then that would be considered shaming. But I didn’t do that. And I don’t think that. Like most vegans almost everyone I have ever loved eats meat, and I used to eat meat too. I fervently believe in compassion for all animals, including meat-eating humans.

      If you felt shamed, that is something you have to reconcile in your own system of ethics. The facts are the facts. It’s up to you to behave in a way that feels good to you in the face of the evidence with your challenges. Being vegan isn’t easy. And it’s not for everyone.

      Personally, I think anyone who is actively trying to do the right thing and improve themselves and the world should be applauded, whatever that entails.

      I am going to continue to give people information, however, because even if isn’t actionable for you personally, for someone else it might be exactly what they need to hear to get them involved in an important cause.

  4. Amazing what a trail-blazer. The tireless and hardworking Virgo, we all need to learn about her in our own charts and bring positive change to the world.

  5. Wow, she is too cool – and a great role model for me as a multiple Virgo too. I have Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Virgo. Then I have a Moon and Neptune conjunction in Capricorn, which trines most of the Virgo planets. I am just starting to realize the great potential of these areas of my chart.

    I am inspired by her tireless energy and dedication to her cause. I feel like most people don’t care or don’t want to know about how much we damage the oceans. I’m a vegetarian and would never eat fish because of bycatch, overfishing, and the related problems it causes. But that’s only one piece of the puzzle as there are so many pollutants being dumped into the oceans every day. It must be scary and discouraging yet she continues to work at the cause.

  6. Another example of how Regulus movement from Leo into Virgo is affecting us already….l” the king is dead long live the ancient queen.” The Virgo message is strong and her subtle powerful energy on the rise….intuition and logos from cosmic level..and Neptune and the sea…she above knows the new language of the earth will come from the sea….

  7. This is why fish is not a healthy food. A single serving of seared tuna flank represents a 5 foot by 5 foot area of bycatch–other species netted accidentally to get the one variety they want. And that included dolphins, dolphin-free canned tuna is the unicorn of the food world.

    If I could wave a magic wand and make everyone stop eating one kind of animal it would be fish. Because the oceans are really on the brink of catastrophic environmental collapse.

    Anyway, she rocks. She makes me want to better activist (hence the mini-rant:).

  8. I also know a capricorn man with v strong neptune (I think conjunct NN at least). and sadge. He basically *looks* like Neptune. His profession is mostly sadge neptunian (underwater). It’s a pretty cool planet to consider just in simple career terms. Even my own chart is on a simple straight-up level pretty descriptive of an international institutional neptunian type. which I am working on 😉

  9. I too love her.
    Neptune is like the perfect anti-matter for a multiVirgo, bringing into being an exquisitely balanced three dimensional form to do both the work of earth and spirit.

    forgive me i am on my 3rd &final glass of red.

    speaking of which

    Does neptune in orb of one’s sun make you more immune / thirsty for blue devil hooch juice? I used to be practically teetotal but now it’s like wine more wine [still not much but my tolerance is way up for no good reason]

    is this a precursor to low neptune? should we judiciously mix haute and low neptune, as befits such a planet? alcohol being a mild depressant and sending us more readily to alpha or theta wavelengths? (sort of.)

    I’m trapped in urban life and dream of oceans and cool forests.

    • Neptune makes one more sensitive to all substances based on personal experience. tNeptune trine nSun and trine nAsc just finished for me (was a Grand Water Trine), and am in the midst of squares to Moon and Venus (ahhhhh until 2018!!). The trines are more pleasant, though not by much. (Crying so much wasn’t fun, but meditation was amazing.) Squares make me jittery and paranoid, whether it be from caffeine or alcohol.

  10. How cool!

    The mundane version of the Neptunian Virgo is an odd breed – pretty much the Anti-Virgo from what I’ve seen in the field. I am well-acquainted with two Virgos who have Neptune in Virgo conjunct their Sun and they are both total hoarders – sorry, no nice way around it! They are kindly old gents but save every single little thing, and they are too young to be like my grandparents who could at least blame the tendency to save things or stockpile canned goods on having lived through the Great Depression. The qi of their homes seriously flips me out. :-/ I have a Uranian-flavored Vesta in Virgo and have on more than one occasion volunteered my services to help them clean & organize. I really can’t understand this way of being…I just can’t! I am pretty minimalist when it comes to “things” and would feel stifled and choked if surrounded by all that crap – I just want to hold their hands and have some kind of “junk intervention”. :-/

    • Hoarding’s a tough one. It’s fascinating. To me it talks about a very deep and yet un-addressed, unrecognised, un-met need for security – a safe place to be in the world, existentially. Hoarding is about fear.
      Where we turn to , the lowest common denominator, the most socially acceptible, the most accessible, for security is in material goods. But to not recognise that there is a strong and not-caringly-addressed emotional need there, is to focus on the wrong facet of the issue.

      • Pi, I know these people pretty well and it’s not *clinical* hoarding, so to pathologize it in the manner you are suggesting I think is a bit misplaced. I know their life stories and I’d say on the whole it’s more about simple laziness coupled with an idea that someday something they would throw away might be *useful*. One of the gents in question is an elderly bachelor and he was all too happy to let me help him clean – usually when someone has a bona fide problem in this regard they won’t let *anyone* throw their things out unless under extreme duress. This fella was so grateful that he took me out to dinner as thanks, which was sweet because all I wanted to do was help… it was its own reward just to see him with a cleaner space. I think he just doesn’t have good organizational habits and then gets easily overwhelmed, which leads to this lather-rinse-repeat cycle where he doesn’t know where to start when it comes to cleaning and then just gives up. I honestly think he needs The FlyLady, but unfortunately he isn’t internet inclined. Or a woman in his life who will keep on him about putting stuff away and throwing things out.

        The other guy is more of a “collector”. But he’s old and can’t keep up with things the way they ought to be kept up and I think he forgets this. He has a farm and is always putting things aside (like farm equipment) in order to fix them up rather than toss them out but then doesn’t get around to it because his energy is spread thin. He fantasizes about fixing something up and getting it running again, but the reality is he doesn’t have much of a concept of his increasingly limited abilities as well as the time and energy it would take him to get things where they need to be. What do you do, be a hardass and have a come-to-Jesus moment with the guy by basically saying “You’re old – you can’t do this anymore?” :-/ How heartbreaking and unkind would that be?? Virgos love to have a project to tinker with – maybe just the *idea* of having a task around to complete is what is keeping him alive, you know?

        Neither instance is rooted in any sort of emotional trauma, nor is it overcompensating for something like living through hard times. I think it’s easy to rush to judgment and make assumptions that hoarding behavior *must* be disordered and there must surely be some deep-seated emotional or psychological problem underpinning it all, because it’s hard for many (including myself) to relate to this mentality. But I think the reality is there are many different potential reasons why people are inclined to accumulate “stuff” and that not all of them necessarily require a mental health Dx.

    • That’s amazing, I just checked my FinLaw’s astro – Moon in Virgo conjunct Neptune!!
      And we are in the middle of a big junk intervention.

      Sagg F.i.Law is living with us as he had a stroke. His house is so full of mould, dust and junk that it quite possibly impacted or even caused the heart/blood issues he suffers, so I forbade him going home.

      We are currently cleaning up his house to help him sell it.
      I do feel like a hardass telling this Moon/Neptune conjunct sentimentalist to get rid of his ex-wife’s broken pottery that is sitting under three inches of dust that it has to go.
      Or the broken chair that his friend had sat on in his garden, that now sits folded & rusted under spiderwebs near the back door is intended for the skip (when we can clear the yard to put the skip in it).

      But my Mars in Virgo isn’t too sympathetic as I think his lack of care for his environment extends to his own body. And he is too precious to let to moulder, even if he would do it left to his own devices. I told him that if he doesn’t regulate his own life, Life will do it for him. (I was really thinking Saturn would do it, but he isn’t into astrology. 🙂 ) I think the transition is very scary for him, but he is being super brave.
      I have actually scanned his house for neg energies etc., funnily it was a happy house, despite it’s terrible state of disrepair. Almost as if it knew how much he loves it. 😉

      • We are doing a Really big purge atmo.
        The Leo is visibly healing and phoenixing, he’s shifting significant mounds of crap (that he used to drag home and stash in case he could use them for building or fixing something, and a serious cause of conflict between us). Now he’s not wanting to bring anything home, he’s tired of the sight of it all.
        home energy is steadily vibing higher, and we both comment on it!

        Jupiter now in my 12th, on cluster of natal mars, Pluto Uranus Virgo, and I am decluttering, opening up closets,…I reckon during this transit, Jupiter is going to get way stuck into my shed which I feel is symbolically my 12th house 🙂
        lots of vintage treasures in there, and my sis’s divorce stuff but I want it to become my studio.

        There is so much to do though…so so much…to get it all fixed and zen and properly decluttered.
        Something MM wrote recently about jupiters energy being expansive, but stately in progress was comforting, in that I don’t feel it all has to happen Now Now Now, but keep plugging away and it will happen.

        I even found a second copy of Karen Kingston’s book ‘Creating Sacred space with fengshui.’ I bought it recently and forgot I had already had one!

  11. So wow. She is impressive by any measure. I hope the world she believes is possible to save is saved within her lifetime.
    Neptune in Virgo I salute you! May your dreams be awash in purifying salty hopefulness!

  12. She is what the planet needs an army of to turn this ship around before we run aground!

    This year is so important and we are held to ransom by mining companies and there political minions

    • Coal mining, that is going to be shipped out thru the GBR, is being touted as morally responsible by Frydenburg. Huh?

      • “Morally responsible” – that’s certainly a Saturn in Sagittarius phrase if I ever did see one! Square to Neptune, and there ya go….what is he ON?! Totally delusional – there’s apt to be a lot of this type of spin during this square, so keep your wits about you, all…!

        FYI: This kind of thing is exactly why I’ve been saying the lead-in to the 2016 election looks like a real shit show – our would-be “leaders” trying to feed us this type of bullshit with a straight face is something I might expect. Question the Kool-Aid the “authority” figures would offer you, kids…
