Let it Go: Neptune transits of the Midheaven

 Neptune transits dissolve all the structures that Saturn sets up, depending on your relationship with Saturn, rather painfully in some cases.

By melting away the patterns which have no spiritual relevance to us, we open ourselves up to the experience of inspiration, serenity and pure vision. Sound nice or just unrealistic and a hippie dippie dream? A Neptune transit is both.

To work with Neptune intentionally involves the most palatable (at least in theory) of remedies- relax, chill out and let it all flow. Cool. There are no mountains to climb (Saturn), electrical storms of unexpected ferocity (Uranus) or depths to descend into (Pluto). Neptune expects you to do nothing, just open yourself to feeling. Dude.

Letting it all just flow is not how we are programmed these days. Can you imagine saying to your boss “sorry Dude, but I’m having, like, this really spacey Neptune transit at the moment and my astrologer told me to just let it be, you know? and open myself up to the beyondness of life. So, I’m heading off to sit on top of a mountain for the next two years…you’d be cool with that?” Right?

Rather than detaching from our ego, everything that we do every day is exactly the opposite. The work we do doesn’t sing to our soul, but it satisfies our need to put a roof (or the right roof) over our head, clothes (and the right brands) on our back, and a label (or title) on our masthead. The goals we set in place and the achievements we pride ourselves on are all there to support the way we want to be seen in the public space. What we do, what title we have, what we have achieved becomes too tightly wound up with who we are.

Neptune transits arrive at a time when we need to be reminded that our ego has become too important to itself, too attached to its own sense of rightness and too intent on pursuing a course that has no real feeling or spiritual relevance.

Neptune transits of the 10th dissolve this reality.  Instead of knowing where you are going, you become confused and unsure. More importantly you no longer know why you are doing what you are doing.

It could simply be that you become jaded with your work and yearn for something with more spiritual meaning. You may be presented with an opportunity to do something more creative, inspirational or altruistic. When you hear a story of a commercial lawyer who has left it all behind to become an artist/missionary/do more pro bono work, there is generally a Neptune transit working behind the scenes.

Under a Neptune transit there is a very real temptation to believe things that are not true, see only the glitz and glamour and not the reality. As a result more difficult Neptune 10th house transits may bring with them deception, a loss of status/reputation, scandal or false accusations.

If you don’t embrace the Neptunian influence willingly, ie if you aren’t willing to let go and open yourself up, Neptune will do it for you. If you don’t relax, Neptune will make sure that you have no choice.
