When you are born with a prominent Neptune or Neptune is activating an important dimension of your natal chart, you’re gifted with Neptune Goggles. They are, of course, invisible. Nobody but you knows that you’re wearing them, and more weirdly, you may not even know that you’re wearing them.
If you were born with a potent Neptune placement, you assume everyone has your omni-prismatic view of life. If they’re lent to you by a Neptune transit – or, as I think of them, a Neptunian mini-series – you slip them on without thinking. When you wear your Neptune Goggles, the music is always brilliant, the lighting is amazing, and you’re in love.
And yet the weirdest thing about Neptune Goggles is that though they get the bad rap of heightened drug use, strange decisions with money, and bizarre crush-delusion zombie affairs – they also enhance your creativity, connection with Source/God/Goddess/ Gaia, compassion and psychic genius.
They are lilac-tinted, multi-dimensional, 5th Essence Detecting, Dark Matter powered quantum devices that operate brilliantly if you can handle the ghosts, addictive desires, and time/sleep anomalies.
Note: Saturn transits make them malfunction and could even prompt you to shelve your omni-everything Neptune Goggles. I can attest to your relationships being saner and your system more balanced without them. Delusion can cost more than the initial estimate, and if your exit strategy resembles ‘winning a vast amount of money‘ or ‘something has to give,‘ then it is definitely time to remove them.
But sometimes, I miss them – the rose-tinted optics and strange lilac light, the buzzy thrill of a technically implausible flirtation, and the indigo disco mist surrounding so-called ‘planning.’
As Rilke – a Neptunian Sagittarius – wrote: “Don’t take my devils away because my angels may flee too.”
