When you have a Saturn square Neptune transit, the part of your psyche that thinks magically is compelled into a more dour thought process.
“I feel dimmed and slowed down. Is it convalescence or a new state? There is too much to synthesize.”
Anaïs Nin, from The Diary of Anaïs Nin
Probably just a stupid Saturn transit madam. If so, she would have been in good company.
So as much as I cheerlead for Saturn, the squares are transits that snap you to attention. It’s like you’ve been drinking Lilac Wine in a fabulous club, dancing, and then suddenly someone slams the lights on. The Disco Mist evaporates, and you notice the scuff marks and your sallow reflection in the mirror. The night outside is cold, and you can’t find your wallet.
But there are positive results to be won by working at a Saturn square Neptune transit. It’s time to go home, clean your teeth, wash your face and power-sleep.
The Disco Mist Evaporates And They Stop Serving The Lilac Wine
Below is the description of this transit from my Year Ahead Astrology Transit Report, FYI.
Saturn Square Neptune
Saturn square Neptune is simple: synthetic relationships disintegrate, getting “out of it” takes on its true spiritual import of being an actual messed up form of astral travel, you are hideously sensitive to all smells – perhaps even being psychic via scent and no longer have the comforting presence of your favorite delusions. Get with it and it becomes (almost) pleasurable. Optional: Cold showers, Salad Greens for breakfast, Sulphur soap.
If you are doing this transit as Saturn in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces, you are doing the deluxe version.
The first exact pulse of it was late November. Congratulations if you woke up one morning in a frenzy of realization and proceeded to cancel/delete/drop any number of vampires, addictions, delusions, veils, excess frippery and well, more delusions.
Are You Dating An Archetype Or A Stereotype?
What is the difference between an illusion and a delusion? There is probably some technical boundary, but if you can’t make art out of it or score a spiritual high, it’s just a delusion. Same as whether someone you’re mixed up with is a stereotype or an archetype. Sometimes the difference between the two is just a blast of wine. That would be Neptune.
Shed the delusions that clog your visionary channels.
