The Saturn Neptune square is the signature astro-passage of 2015/2016. The last time these two faced off was in 2006/2007. That was Saturn in Leo versus Neptune in Aquarius, this time it is Neptune in the sign that it rules.
A.k.a. a potent Neptune, capable of casting a powerful spell, for genius-art-compassion-shamanic-Awesome-soulmating OR, well you know how treacherous the undertow of Neptune can get. Saturn in Sagittarius is all about the blazing candor, no bull shit, truth-liberates sort of thing BUT it can also be a freaky religious fanaticism and/or non-stop belief wars.
But in our personal vibe, we’re trying to aim for haute Neptune – psychic, guided, magic, idealistic & creative – whilst still doing our due Saturn diligence. Some people are cleaving to one or the other already and not the highest version of either.
They’re turning on big-time to escapism/zombie affairs/blue devil hoochie juice and other Neptunian substances OR they’re setting their stance to “rigid” and making out like if they repeat the same ‘everything is fine, this is just cyclical/a short shower/a spat” that things will “sort themselves out.”
SO handling this Saturn-Neptune scene is what’s under-pinning all the Horoscopes at the mo, even if they don’t always say “this is because of the Saturn-Neptune square” and it is a strong theme of the Sagittarius Now Mp3 obviously.
But if you prefer a more visual display of the Saturn-Neptune Vortex, voila.
There is Haute Neptune – Art, Myth, Star-Crossed Lovers, Glamour, Shamans, Jung, Lucid Dreaming, Yoga, Lilac Wine etc…Magic is real.
And then there is Lower Neptune – slippery people, co-dependent romances where each person relates to the other person’s crappiest dimension or you’re having sex with your dealer (art or drugs), whatever. History is redolent with lost party souls, devotees of using Neptunian substances to transcend/seduce/numb/delude/ghost out/cope.
And of course, you don’t have to be high to be delusional. Or mistaking temporary flimsy solutions for the structural/big change that is required.
So when Saturn comes along to square Neptune (and the closest it has got so far this year was mid-March), the Haute Neptune stuff you’re doing right – striving to be magic but not crazy, patiently confronting compulsions and lower Neptune attitudes, monitoring omens, dreams etc – becomes BETTER. Genuine soul connections get stronger. Truly original work/art/ideas are productive. Saturn can augment the magic that is Neptune.
But if you’re insisting on maintaining some Lower Neptune style thought process, economy, relationship, anything – Saturn square Neptune is a bit more like this.
