"Dream delivers us to dream, and there is no end to illusion. Life is like a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue . . . "

The planet responsible for submerging us into dreams, illusion, glamour and delusions is preparing to go retrograde in his home turf of Pisces on June 7, and continuing for 160 days. This is our opportunity to confront any areas of our life where we have been living in denial. Look to where your favorite modes of escapism lie and ask yourself what inner caves have you been avoiding.

This is a precious opportunity to connect back to spirit, your unconscious, sleep and dream work in a powerful way. It's easier to access the right hemisphere of the brain. We're more likely to turn our minds away from logic and reasoning and towards creativity, mysticism, symbolism and subtle energy. Those with strong Pisces, Neptune or Twelfth House energies in their birth chart will feel this profound shift, and may feel overwhelming sensitive. It’s all too easy to leave our bodies and lose our grounding during this time, as we shift into the subtle body realm.

It's a good idea to avoid or at least cut down alcohol and caffeine during this time to remain somewhat grounded and still attached to the Earth plane. It's also wise to avoid chemicals, and any addictive people, places and things. Due to the heightened sensitivity, it's also important to steer clear of toxic and draining situations. Boundaries are not strong during this time. We are all feeling more permeable to the influences around us, so be mindful of what you're letting into your energetic sphere.

On the brighter side, this is a beautiful time for healing, compassion and accessing our visionary potential. We have special access to the higher realms of creativity and all of the subtle art forms and healing arts. Empathy, spirituality, mysticism, the invisible, dreams, archetypes and surrendering our egos to something higher are all prevalent themes for the second half of 2013. There is a strong redemptive quality to Neptune when we embrace it for all of its healing potential.
