This was in part of an email i got from a subscriber recently, in the context of Neptune being parked on the South
Swamp Node until December.
I am really enjoying the opportunities to break free of those past shackles (the reactive zone-out unconscious activity one).
I was going to say that I hope you are enjoying it too…but I’ve no doubt that you are.
Well. Okay, i think pretty much all of us can relate to this as a theme du jour. Neptune on the South Node = heightened awareness of subconscious patterns, compulsions and relationship tropes. Once those are raised to the surface level of our consciousness, the magic, creativity and soul-bonding can begin.
But don’t underestimate the potential treachery or strong undertow of this. Yesterday, apropos of no prompt or trigger whatsoever, i found myself on the Facebook page of someone with whom i had a thing that probably blended elements of Love Zombie, Qi Vampire and Chaos Addiction – a lower Neptunian hook-up for sure. The Moon was conjunct Neptune in the composite. Neptune was crossing my Aquarius Ascendant at the time and i forget – thank Hecate – the rest.
Anyway, it was painful and I have literally not thought of the man for YEARS. Suddenly looking at his FB page (and i am not even personally ON Facebook) bought it all up, like waves of emotion and everything felt so immediate. Because I have been studying the astrology of all this, i knew to not get lost in those waters but to seek the treasure or mine for the insight.
I got it, hours later, but it took a meandering walk with the dog and having to just let unpleasant feelings float around. And the urge to numb it all with naff food (marshmallows wtf?) or Blue Devil Hoochie Juice or just some brittle narrative explanation was SO intense.
But absurd as it sounds, that would have been like splashing around – when the real protocol was to remain still, float, assess and correct my stroke to get on out of there. So this is just my little anecdote to say that the undertow from the past and in particular those unresolved but haunting old Neptune-heavy love affairs is strong. If you don’t want to succumb to any auto-numbing techniques or your own brittle but not-acknowledging-feelings intellectual out, have your armory stocked with alternative techniques.
Haute Neptune always comes back to some form of mediation – whether you’re cross legged in your bedroom, in Savasana at Yoga or meandering around in flaneur mode. It doesn’t matter. The point is you let it surface and pass through.
