Neptune-South Swamp H.Q.

Filed in Neptune

queen-of-the-sea

So, while the geopolitical landscape is busy putting surrealist movie makers out of work by being clearly crazier than even the most deranged, inventive film person on Space Dust, we can do our own psychic swamp draining.

Neptune is STILL on the South Node of the Moon – aka a mysterious vortex of previous existences, ghosts, aura fragments, psychic residue, ancestral entities and unrequited or expired romances not yet integrated. It is a beautiful but melancholy wetlands with strange alien flowers.

Neptune here is making our psyche and all the above themes cinematic. If you’re just over the news cycle, tune out and re-access your own inner dimensions. There has never been a better month than this one to do so.

If you are REALLY hankering for a major astrological “research” distraction, Neptune + the South Node are also conjunct asteroid Teharonhiawako – an Iroquois Creator God.  A karmic echo indeed.

Is Nept on SN a health issue trigger? Because ever since it moved there my health has been kinda crappy. I have been sick in the past 3 weeks.

Neptune/SN sq Sun/SN natal. Sun/SN has it’s own inherent…shall we say challenges and insights but this is whack. It fluctuates between weird, gnarly and surreal…riding a wave of all things past ..all things in vague or clear vision and dream. The trick with a wave like this is not to loose it in the sharp corners (square) or in some parallel reality. Just as well You can’t literally drown in this funk even when it holds you under for a good long look around….old worlds rushing forth with the power of a rip. Like all things SN the insights will… Read more »

Listening to Leonard and reading interviews with man. I think he died at the perfect time if it means people take a little bit of his way of being and seeing the world inside. Like a seed pod releasing its seeds to the wind.

I thought the same thing. I’m feeling a bit apprehensive bcos 3 Scorpios, who are also Canadian, are getting on.

Yes LC is 21/9.
I was more referring to the age of them. And the fact that they’re Canadians.

Do you know that Drain[ing] the Swamp is one of Donald Trump’s campaign promises? It’s right there in his first 100 days plan, although I know that expression was on this website first. Spooky.

Speaking of Neptune in Pisces on the SN, the RWS version of The Moon (AKA the Pisces card) just featured heavily in one of my dreams. I was walking on this long pier out into ocean that led to a sizable straw/bamboo hut. Inside the hut there were large rectangular holes cut into the floor so you could reach down and into the water to pick up any one of a vast number of lobsters….presumably to eat. I plunged my hands into the waters and lifted one of the crustaceans out in amazement; noting and being cautious of its claws… Read more »

Mystic, thank you for the asteroid Teharonhiawako tip! Yes, yes: of course… and it eventually reminded me that I live along an Underground Railroad route– a route I travel every day. Fab Neptune-South Node-Teharonhiawako insights! Feels less like a swamp & more like a fountain of youth 🙂 x

Hi Ankhy! Underground railroad sounds intriguing, I’m guessing you’re not talking about a metro train?! I’ve been drawn to S America for a while now — Mayan etc. stuff. Maybe instead of a trip to US I will head south, given the political climate now

AnkhRising8.0MM Member
AnkhRising8.0

Gemyogi! 🙂 🙂

The underground railroad was an “invisible” path slaves would take from the South to reach freedom in the North (US & sometimes on to Canada). Along it were white families who would hide the fugitives from bounty hunters & give them shelter in their homes/barns/churches to help the people make their escapes. Risky & righteous. It inspires me to be helpful however high the stakes: people are worth it.

Unless you want to culturally immerse yourself in our current sociopolitical upheaval, yes, head to the southern continent lol. Mayans! Such rich history… Peru is on my bucket list!

It’s like I am walking the high road and the low road at the same time. Occasionally I catch sight of Other Me (on the other road) through the trees, as long as we’re in view, the things can integrate… a three legged race with both of me. can’t go too fast or we fall over. must work together.

Nothing new that is concrete to comment on besides potentially new lucrative biz deals. I can see why other similar biz have passed on these but so much $ I could reduce my biz hrs and still have $ to save. I hope this is the financial Jupiter blessing I am looking for. It is a workload only a capricorn could love. And gosh almost Dec. Feeling depressed early this year. I normally wait until after Thanksgiving but mom had to ask if my boyfriend was coming to eat with us. Ugh what boyfriend? Oh that guy from june? Ugh.… Read more »

My love life is very strange right now. I´ve been in a crazy schedule and mending from a break up with my beautiful Libran who I finally closed the door too and it is only now that is he flipping out , like now I have finally left the building for real in terms of no contact, starting to date, moving on. Part of me will always love him a little but he is fully pulling the 5am drunk messages and why aren´t you responding to my messages I love you card, day + night. I finally had to reply… Read more »

Feel like i’ve been in the gap period between selves for a whole historical era.

They’re there, they’re cute enough, but i’m BUSY. Lonely but too damned busy with the most important thing i can bring to the table: my self.

ok so all of this particularly the last para. (and except the libran situation)

everyone is doing a much better job than I have been at articulating the thing. mille’s pep-talk-a-minute and the self-gap-shaping-progress and the omfg my past in my face like jurassic park and reprocessing that incl fuq anyone over including self.

I think as a collective its time we are learning some important lessons with the US political climate, as it will affect everyone on a global scale…We are all connected. As a group we are being pushed to the next level, even though it seems we took a step back. I think this situation mirrors to us the truth of the reality of our actions. We arent as far along as we think, because we havent moved along together as a group, imo. “For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the… Read more »

This morning yoga practice I have started after Samhain is working in a subtle way but I feel that so far is good for me. It’s like having my body and soul gently waking up. Plus the kundalini breathe meditation bring space, stillness and subtle focus that help me recharge before entering the crazy ectic day at work. For the first time in a long time I feel like a conduct the day instead of having the routine being in charge as if I wasn’t even there. But the change feels slow and fluid and the “not sure what will… Read more »

I’m oscillating between intense swampy what’s happening in the world/ my inner landscape lows and positive feelings that I can radiate change and hope to the world. I’m pretty neptunian Pisces sun moon Venus + north node . Glad astrology is around to explain the universe right now

Ugh.

I’ve relapsed into a wet, ghostly version of she whom I used to be.

Boringly insecure, paranoid and gauche.

All of the trauma of the year seems to have accumulated in my psyche to give me one last kick up the bum on its way out the door.

I’m such a drainer!

Two weeks ago I was poised as a lioness, and had been most of this turgid, roiling cyclone of a year.

This week…ermegerd… Feel like I need to apologise just for showing up!

PiMM Member
Pi

i know this place. I was just saying to someone that I think 2016 has given me PTSD not least for being the year in which everything that has gone before showed up again with a vengeance

Breathe through the insecurity.. take a walk, and challenge yourself, gently, when you find that you are castigating yourself for not being – or thinking you are not behaving or coming across – a certain way.

You are not:
– Boringly insecure, paranoid and gauche
– such a drainer
– obliged to apologise just for showing up.

it’s the astro. like a drain.

Ali
Ali

Beautiful Pi; thank you. Your response was extremely comforting.

I love the scaffolding we’re offered here.

Gently unravelling our own personal mysteries within a shared universal context… It’s a powerfully alchemical process.

Practical, magical and eternally relevant.

For me, I always find optimism and higher, wiser purpose here. The comments are as interesting and insightful as the posts!

Uranus is on my mercury, Venus and moon. Chiron and Neptune are riding my sun.

Powerful times.

Ms.
Ms.

that is not boring astrology there! blame uranus -uranus has this way of shouting at you about things you feel that are boring super non polite like and chiron is not be underestimated for suddenly feeling like total shit after seemingly fine self esteem, I have chiron square my venus (about to conjunct saturn…) but I only just realised this and it makes total sense. Just don’t beat yourself up and do something cool so at least uranus is not bored and has outlets, bet you will feel much better.

Ali
Ali

Thanks ms! Feeling validated and much more cheerful. I haven’t consciously worked Uranus before. I’ll definitely research and put into practice. Excellent encouragement guys; super grateful, and very much more at peace with it all. xxx

Ms.
Ms.

dooooo it will liberate when you listen, that is the magic, the house and alignment will give you a clue and could be a nice energy shaker after the super soggy chiron aspects. I´m presuming this all happening in aries for you so movement of some kind (that thrills you- for real) is totally necessary…

Ms.
Ms.

as an example. I would find some outlet that allows the moon to be nurtured too. for example if you like motorbikes you could teach yourself to ride and take a long ride on an open road or a bicycle even somewhere beautiful and time yourself so you can get slightly competitive about it lol and that will also nurture the moon and shift your awareness out of depressive patterns. I have no idea what you are into but that would be an example of something very physical, hopefully you have a hobby or some better ideas

Ali
Ali

Oh! Chiron & Neptune are on my mars, as well…

hang in there relapsing Lioness!! every time we come out the other side of insecurity it gives us new empathy and insight 🙂

i appear to have gone right back to old childish coping mechanisms to navigate reality in the last couple of weeks – all out sugar binges and annoyingly getting all defensive anytime someone comes to me with constructive feedback…a part of me is hating myself while observing all this but also given the south swamp it does seem like a necessary throwback and i’m sure we’ll all find a diamond amongst the cankers.

I’m definitely suffering from a romance that’s either not yet integrated or unrequited, does anyone know any good spells / herbs / hypno / drugs to fall out of love with someone? Need to drain that swamp.. 🙁

It’s weird because my toddler daughter has recently (past month or so?) started claiming that my bedroom is “yucky”, and seems to be afraid of it sometimes. It just seems like she’s more scared of things in general. She didn’t want to go trick-or-treating on Halloween because she said it was too spooky (but in the end, the promise of candy won her over). I just noticed that the SN/Neptune thing is right on her MC axis. I wonder if she’s picking up some stuff?

PiMM Member

maybe you could give her some paper and coloured pencils and ask her to draw your room how she feels.

Interesting idea! Although I’m a little scared of the potential result?

Thank you for the Astro poetry, Mystic.

Got that water goddess (Medusa) altar going tonight. Natural water cleanse is the idea. Get me to an island for salt scrub and windy messages.

This collective cycle of events has got #trigger all up and down.
Feel first, then think, then react is a reminder I tell myself to repeat.

Been listening to The Illiad by Homer. So many egos and dramas and similes.

September 1, new moon eclipse – I walk outside and see a turtle right next to the porch. The turtle is huge in Native American mythology. Not sure about the connection to the SN or me specifically but I have another reason to be thankful for the visit.

Oh, snap! The eclipse was on my prog Virgo sun that day. Again, not sure what it all means but I love me some nature visits.

My 9 ‘Staggered’ Mutable T Square Mermaid has come back on-line in a big way. This Swamp/Nep Rx is smack dab in the middle of her 4 Piscean planets; none more than 3 deg away from this conjunction- plus natally her Neptune on her Scorp Asc. Plus tight opp my Venus.
