The news about the poet Mary Oliver reminds me of the old astrological axiom that great souls pass on during Eclipse seasons.
The Uses of Sorrow
(In my sleep I dreamed this poem)
Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift.
Sun Conjunct Neptune Is Auto-Shamanic
She was Sun-Neptune Conjunct, a Virgo and clearly a classic Haute Neptunian.
Sun Conjunct Neptune
They’re an Outer Planet person for reals. When the Sun is aligned with Neptune, the person’s self-actualization and identify is inevitably aligned with a broader consciousness. It’s the Auto-Shamanic position. Susan Sarandon has this. So did Carrie Fisher. They’re higher powered or just high all the time. They need to beware coarse substances, people and places. Eg; drugs, Qi Vampires who want some of the Sun-Neptune glamor and spiritual connection without having to do the work. They can freak out in synthetic environments such as malls. Having the Sun conjunct Neptune makes people magic. Ada Lovelace, the “Enchantress of Numbers” who helped invent the first computer, was Sun-Neptune.
But they need to be mindful of their personal energies. Caroline Knapp – author of the groundbreaking sobriety memoir Drinking – A Love Story – was Sun-Neptune. Sometimes their urge to escape the Saturnine bounds of reality becomes so strong that they either succumb or turn their struggle into awe-inspiring art and guidance for others. Marie Kondo, the decluttering maven, is Sun-Neptune. Instilling order and embracing minimalism is an elegant way of channeling the Neptune energy. But unless there are strong influences from other astral energies, these people are better at reading auras than they are Profit and Loss statements. Frida Kahlo was also Sun-Neptune: “don’t mind me, I come from another planet, I see horizons where you see borders.”

She was also in the same Soul Pod as Rudolph Steiner, Goethe, Tamara De Lempicka, Anne Boleyn, and Eminem.
