Neptune transits have a strong undertow that can take you under and away from “land.” Learn how to be strong in the Neptune ‘ocean’ and not swept away.
I am coming out of the transit of a lifetime (actually, of several lifetimes): Transiting Neptune on my Sun. It has been happening in my 8th house, during which my libido seemed to be washed away in a tsunami of other feelings, mostly, the feeling of being overwhelmed. Daily life felt like I was treading water. It was hard to generate any eros while I felt assaulted by vibes on a daily basis for, oh, the last 3 years. Lord Poseidon washed away any semblance of self I thought I had.
But as the orb is finally starting to widen, I feel like a beautiful piece of driftwood: vomited out by the ocean, utterly polished and shaped by the violent churning of the tide. I am emerging looking like something alien, far more beautiful than its original form and, a nice added benefit, soft to the touch.
I Feel Like I Have Survived A Cage Fight With A God
I feel like I have survived a cage fight with a God. I’ve have taken many sharp barbs from Poseidon’s trident. I have been waterboarded by the great bearded sadist king of the seas. I nearly drowned only to bob to the surface, grab a big breath of air and be yanked back down again. And now, finally, the fight is over. It’s a draw. We both respect one another and I have learned so much. I want to get Poseidon tattooed on my body somewhere, probably on my rib-cage (gills). That’s how much I respect the epic tango I have had with Neptune.
Only a few lucky humans get to have Neptune transits to their Sun. Each Neptune cycle is 165 years. What am I to make of this? Will I finally get my 8th house mojo back? I feel so much more capable around money now. My erotic sabbatical has shifted to a real attraction point for money and opportunity. But I would like to think that I am not permanently scared in the eros department and that after Neptune moves away I can feel something other than total water-logged exhaustion.
Thanks for reading,
Neptune Transits Seem Calm On The Surface, Like An Ocean Concealing Ancient Cities & Mysterious Treasure.
Dear Fish Underwater,
The short answer is YES! You will get your 8th House mojo back and it will be better than before. Like when those characters have strange laboratory accidents or spend time on an alien ghost ship and return with super-powers. Outer Planet transits to the Sun, particularly when the Outer Planet is conjunct the Sun, go for years and are significant. By the end of this astral alchemy, you are never the person you were before.
(If you don’t know when you’re having one of these or even what an Outer Planet is, check out the Seven Year Astro-Passages instant download report.)
Neptune transits are more internal than Uranus or Pluto. They’re more subtle on the surface. Think of an ocean that looks calm but conceals treacherous currents, strange monsters, lost ancient cities and mysterious wrecks.
You Can Barely Stand To Be In A Mall Or Any Environment That Feels Synthetic And Manipulative
Uranus transits are when you pull a W.T.F. stunt. They’re the astrological phenomena most likely to have people saying you’ve lost your mind even as they secretly envy you for finding out who you really are and damn well acting on it, fuq society. Pluto transits are Gothic-Tabloid in tone. They feel like a training montage in a movie. Pluto transits uncover a molten core of hot power deep within. They need their own soundtrack.
But Neptune can feel like you’ve lost your bearings. The undertow from anything usually under control (hormones, crushes, addictions, sugar, fantasy) intensifies and takes you away from land. They can render your energy exquisitely sensitive to everything. You almost want to live like a Sage or a Priestess in a secret castle, grounded and protective of your psychic energy. You know Neptune Vibe is potent when you can barely stand to be in a mall or any environment that feels synthetic and manipulative.
Every Outer Planet Transit Is An Initiation – Particularly The Conjunctions
Neptune transits through the Eighth House are tricky. Neptune sex is Tantric, a union of souls. This is why it hardly ever happens except (ahem) solo or in your imagination. It is not congruent with 21st Century online dating hooking culture. When you’re insanely sensitive to scent, sound, nuance, and coarseness, you’re hardly going to trot your newly-hatched soul-self into bed with people.
Don’t freak but there is an aspect of Neptune that is chaste. Not in a puritan judgemental style but just because, well, you’re no longer able to casually blend energies. Every outer planet transit is an initiation. You can’t go back. It’s like the next level in a platform game.
You will be less water-logged and feel your strength coming back as you realize Neptune bequeathed you some of his super-potency powers. You’ll be a shitload more psychic and artistically inspired. You will have a healthier ability to fend off anything addictive or vampiric.
Your soul woke up. You can’t disassociate during sex or disengage your soul self from the whole thing. You are not scared; you’re fully conscious and magic.
