Subscribers: No Splashing In The Neptune Waters

Filed in Uncategorized

no-splashing

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.

Jupiter is bang on my Venus and Chiron searing my Saturn.

My salvation has been mega bootcamp exercise, cleaning, YouTube gospel sermons, and good eating.

I gave up crap eating last week-hearing my friend describe sugar’s devilish side- did not watch the video she raved about-and oddly, the craving turned itself off.

My nemesis revisited has been self berating low Scorp sting self with tail and writhe. But music, dogs, nature cats put me right.

The swamp has dredged up several strange situations but I stayed calm, sat back and did not engage.
powerful feeling of not getting sucked into other people’s dramas.
I had zero desires to over indulgence in booze or food. I think I passed my “test.”

Maybe transit Pisces-Chiron-Neptune is helping us Scorp Risings stay in an air bubble?

I confess I lived some mud at a man who bad mouthed me but I went haute again.

Drawing strength and ideas from this blog – sat by the sea this afternoon and saw some whales spouting; have just drawn a cool bath with epsom salts and clary sage oil; supporting a dear friend whose absolutely lovely dog is to be euthanised tomorrow; did have a few voddies but it actually has helped; waiting for the british bodice ripper serial to be broadcast tonight; apologised to the new man for running off last night without notice and he has apologised too, for the behaviour that prompted my actions. let’s hope tomorrow brings clarity and new direction.

quintileMM Member
quintile

ahh – mars in libra does pose challenges in love and friendship relationships I’ve found (I have it natally) if one is not that good at asserting oneself and/or is frightened that love is conditional. on the other hand, i’ve worked it professionally to be pretty good at managing different perspectives and strife, and helping people see multiple perspectives. Coping with Libran inertia? Just decide on what’s best for the project.

MM, what you describe is what started happening for me strongly in the middle of October, around that full moon. I have Moon at 7 Pisces, and Mars/MC at 17 Pisces so maybe I started to feel the Neptune/SN thing early? Anyway, I was in a real funk the last two weeks of October, stuff came up strong about ex-lover I left in Oct of last year, and all out of the blue, must have been astro-prompted, because nothing happened IRL. Toward the end of it, though, all of a sudden his instagram profile showed up as ‘suggested’ on my… Read more »

I always take Neptune notes. Always. But holy fuq maybe I am for once okay. Maybe my consolation prize for this Saturn transiting my Moon Neptune for what feels like forever is paying off. Jupiter is on my Pluto which sextiles my moon so I am benefitting from that as well. Yes I have been binging on the sweets, my husband always buys too much Halloween candy and then people seem to think I need cake and more candy, seriously. But it’s been making me ill so I’m not really eating as much as I normally would. Then my transit… Read more »

I never drank sangria till last weekend. I was visiting my mate in Sydney and we had a bottle or two. Yep, he is a very Mutable Piscean.

I got talkin to his daughter and l sensed her as a Uranian. I said that to her. The she told me how she crushed hard on partners. I said her Moon must be cj one of the other relship planets.

So l did her chart: 1- Sun cj Uranus. 2- Moon cj Venus. Ha!!!

Good call, PF! I love Uranians. And it takes one to know one, am I right? Haha

The funny thing we discussed was this-
We have both tried to hide it in new circles (friends, work, etc) but it just breaks free.

Moral of the story: If you have Sun and Uran in same sign and or house, you can’t keep it locked or hidden. It’ll break free soon enough.!

So that is an aqua thing? I’m really like that – brain on a stick kinda thing. I wonder if that is because most of my first house is in aqua even though my AC is actually cappy? Always wondered what the rest of the house ‘did’. I don’t identify with many of the supposed cap traits like ambition etc, though I do have the dry skin and difficult dental problems, lol, lucky me.

I’ve had this going on for a few weeks: brief emotional snapshots of the past that come on strong and leave just as suddenly. I’ve been remembering things differently, though, or at least different things about well-trod episodes. Sag Sun/Neptune and Pisces Rising — my life feels generally non-linear beneath an increasingly more reliable surface competence that is Saturn + Mars returning to its natal Cap.

Not looking forward to Tuesday. If all I do that day is eat some candy and drink too much I’m still counting it as a win.

In my early to mid 20’s my dad turned his dining room into a literal “swamp shack”. He painted the walls, put in wooden pillars, and scaffolding at the top where he slid in this metal sheeting across the top for a rustic rooftop, and wooden railing along the side walls with all types of grass, (stuffed) animals and running water as a type of scenery, and got one of those giant tree slabs, atop a tree stump for a table right in the center. There was always this muggy and dirty feeling in there – you could never properly… Read more »

That table sounds dangerous. I bought a table like that and I loved it to pieces but we thought someone would eventually break a foot or something.

VenusRulesMM Member

Born with a Neptune-Sun conjunction in Scorpio, the LZ undertow always pulls me (swim diagonally!). Thanks Mystic for sharing this. I’m noticing the conjunction powerfully too, as my progressed moon is in Pisces right there with the NN and Neptune. Losing things, finding things, and wanting to buy ALL THE SHOES AND BOOTS.

ElectroMM Member
Electro

Yes! Shoes and boots! I have a very specific and slightly long list of shoes that I absolutely need. I bought one pair but I will seriously break the bank if I purchase the rest. Saturn on my Neptune – well made shoes for exactly the right purpose… And socks, wtf I want all those too.

dizzarinaMM Member
dizzarina

Hehe… all my socks seem to have sprung holes at the same time, so yeah- I want all the socks too.

VenusRulesMM Member
VenusRules

Yep! Stocked up on good socks and tights this week – seeking out the best foot creams (Shikai Borage is the favorite so far) and another pair of boots. I’ve always loved shoes and taken care of my feet but never this compulsively!

dizzarinaMM Member

Thank you- I just realized I had a sample of Shikai Borage right next to my couch and had never used it. It’s quite lovely on the feet. 🙂

PiMM Member

Omg
VERY GOOD ADVICE for dealing with LZ rips.
Native Pisces has all the shoes and boots.
It’s a tough battle. I advise going for best possible quality, avoiding anything that will cause blisters, bunions or hobbling, waiting for sale time, and checking the cost per wear situation before purchase. And then allow for a bit of magic sometimes because everyone needs metallic rainbow spike hi-top sneakers.

ElectroMM Member

I’m not a native Pisces, no planets even. Perhaps I get an honorable mention for my strong Neptune placement and a 12th house NN?

Right! I love my Kate Spade Keds in sparkly cobalt blue. Cost per wear – sometimes gets overridden by these neptunian waves of need/want confusion.

The shoes and boots thing is the only thing that is resonating for me on this post. No run ins with exes or mooning about long ago exes . Maybe as a Neptune square Venus I already do enough of that regularly I get to skip this transit. Only thing going on for me is concentrating on money issues as the worst part of the year is here, the part where statistically I starve to death slowly until new year’s. But might have a new contract into play soon.

And since I am from Chicago, and it’s been 108 years since our last World Series Championship, I feel there is something so totally breakthrough about all of this. It is absolutely epic and a new era for sure!!!!! Yay! GO CUBS GO! (Don’t mind me, just been waiting a lifetime!) 😉

It’s been INTENSE! This week I’ve bumped into my very first boyfriend at an event I wasn’t going to until the last minute; had a weird pull to cyber stalk and eventually message a guy I went full LZ and stage 5 clinger on about 18 months ago; then today heard from a guy I went on a date with 6 months ago. All very different past scenarios, but dredging up the past nonetheless – the energy has been super odd, I feel like I need to cleanse in a fresh spring or have a rebirth of some kind!

I’m so grateful you brought this issue up as I can always pretty easily identify the usual neptune stuff (junk food, sleeping too much, delusional spending), but the online addiction stuff is sneaky and easy to miss!

Stay haute 😉

Pillows of grief = reading this, I had a memory of myself as a kid eating a jar of marshmallow fluff by myself after school, I was alone a lot and ate to cope.

Also having $$$$ issues and while normally low Neptune would ask I would just shove my face and avoid, I literally can’t afford to buy any junk food so I have to deal. LOL

AstroGeekMM Member

I’m not sure. It’s sort of legal enough here (go the the doctor and get an RX, then go to a dispensary) … I haven’t read the Proposition digest they send yet. (Planning to cram on Monday). We have at least 15 on the ballot.

seawitchmermaidMM Member
seawitchmermaid

Interesting! We are voting on it in my state too, currently the same sort of sitch- easy to get an rx and skip off to the dispensery. Two towns have actually legalized it but I’m not 100% sure how that works. Anyway I really hope it passes but we shall see, it has special conditions to pass which is stupid,like it needs to get 60% of votes or something like that. I don’t think it would negatively impact growers, the prop is short and just asks if it should be legal for adults.

flowerchild
flowerchild

The mj growers that I know are voting no, because of the wording of the proposition. The industry would be poised for a big corporate takeover if it passes. Every time this has been on the ballot, you can look county by county which voted yes or no, and Mendo and Humbolt always vote no to legalization because all the growers there don’t want to be regulated in the way that the law would be written. Plus they’d lose a lot of profits. Anyway, that’s me chiming in from northern California.. but yeah, it’s basically legal here for all intents… Read more »

Ugh that frustrates me to no end: growers & sellers voting no. They’d rather ppl risk arrest & imprisonment (esp ppl of color) to use their goods, rather than figuring out a different way to make money w/ weed (or even just continue selling it on the black market as they have been)! I feel like mj users are being held hostage over profits, yo.

dizzarinaMM Member
dizzarina

Ankh, I understand your frustration, but I also understand the growers’ reluctance. Here in Oregon, where rec has now been legal for a year, the regulations keep changing and piling more financial burdens on the growers. The latest is that all product must be lab-tested for precise cannabinoid levels, which costs lots. The sellers are struggling to keep prices competitive and keep up with regulations and labeling etc. Basically, and I hate to say this as a liberal: any time you get gov’t bureaucracy involved, it all goes to sh*t. So I do understand them waiting for wording that protects… Read more »

Exactly, dizzarina!

You know that California growers have been paying attention to what has happened in Washington, Colorado, and Oregon since gov’t regulation, and they don’t want that here.

Personally, I don’t care all that much, I don’t use mj at all, and those who do in Cali, pretty much have easy access and it’s more or less tacitly ‘legal’ here, but I don’t like to see big corporate takeovers. I could see Big Pharma getting involved in this.

Projects are viable. Crops are viable. You’re an amazing always fun saggitarius with sexy Scorpio rising and socially adept Libra moon. You’re a human being. Which is probably a long way ahead already than much of the population of LA, surely.

“He’s my best friend, but not the man who I can build a life with.” I so relate! But you are doing both him & you a favor in letting him go even though it does not feel like it. Yourself first and foremost because you know what he has to offer you is just not compatible with your partnering needs and you aren’t going to shortchange yourself, and him because he will be free to find a partner who treasures all that he does have to offer and accepts him as-is. What you are doing is brave and loving,… Read more »

I might be doing a bit of the first two – and who doesn’t from time to time – but he last one – no way. It is not a fix re status envy, trust me.

Just met up with my ex tonight to say bye before I move across the country… needed this more than you know

I am so happy you made this post. Literally the same thing happened to me just moments before I came to your blog. There I was, on the dreaded crackbook, looking up the ex (who has either cancelled his profile, or blocked me after I unfriended him). Why? Why was I there? I’m not looking to renew relations, I really have no interest – I can only hope that he’s moving on in his life and dealing with his demons, the dependency demons. This swamp, this dredging has been putting flashes of lovers past – my sweet sixteen who suicided… Read more »

Thanks for sharing this Mystic – very brave and generous of you! I have been looking for concrete techniques to cope with the south node and neptune on my ascendent, and the general south swamp vibe. To be honest sometimes this last week, I’ve not been feeling that successful in my endeavours. My new lover has been absent with the flu, and in the vacuum so much old pain has come up for me. But yes, as you say “the real protocol is to remain still, float, assess and correct my stroke to get on out of there.” hugs and… Read more »

The last year or two have been a massive bushfire and I hope that the very hard Aussie nut that I have as my situation will burst into a seedling soon.
I just had a cigarette, maybe that will help lol.

Did your very hard Aussie nut burst, Sphinx?

Beautiful metaphor for the year. I resonate with that completely.

This year’s bushfires left me smoking and charred on the outside, with a green stream humming through my core. Now I have a clear landscape. Fertile and rich with strength, wisdom and new insight.

Love your clear green jade ocean of hope and confidence! It suits you Ali. You are such a force! My nut is my living sitch, my little fam of two kids + hub includes an ASD son (not so verbal) and last year my aspie father-in-law moved in. Suffered too many accidents & strokes due to inability to properly care for himself, tho he always bounces back! We spent last summer superficially renovating his hovel in 40 deg heat & sold it. He hates homes & we haven’t a house so we decided to join forces. It’s been hard (he… Read more »

“Neptune crossing my Aquarius Ascendant” yep mine to and I have just realised
I opened my instagram and it opened to a quote “ten years from now, make sure you can say that you chose your life, you didn’t settle for it.
I would have looked back and realised I settled!!
Time to back myself and take a leap of faith while Jupiter is in my sun Libra. Sow those seeds now.
