Neptune's Net: Response to Reader Query

by The Astrologer's Daughter February 17, 2011 08:03 PM EST
Hey Hudson,
Just wanted to ask you if there is anything going on astrologically that might be making things feel out of place. I've noticed it since last week, and a good friend of mine called me asking me what is going on. The only thing I can find online is that Saturn is in retrograde, but it seems that that is the case for half the year. When I read about the explanation i wasn't if that was really what was going on.

Both my friend and I have noticed that things seems to have moved that we don't believe we moved. She's having all kinds of computer issues. Wanted to see if there anything conjuncting anything that might be causing this.
Thanks for your help.

Hi KL,
Okay ... so looking more closely, a few things stand out. For one, There is a HUGE build-up inAquarius energy. The Sun, Mars, Mercury, and Neptune are all here right now. While Mercury, Mars and even the Sun "don't mind"being in this air sign (Aquarius), I have a feeling that it is watery, elusive Neptune that isn't feeling quite at home in the cool, more cerebral sign of Aquarius.

Aquarius rules all thing electronic and Neptune is about that which we can't touch or devise through logical, left-brained thinking. Its more sensorial, emotional feelers run againstagainst the analytic and scientific mode of the sign Aquarius. While in the field of relationships, this may bea time of fortuitous encounters with like-minded souls who seem to come out of the woodwork, this will not be the case with computers and/or technology in general (And this is all happening in the 3rd house for you - which rules all short-term communications). Neptune throws a gauze over things, and can act as a destructive force rather than the idealized dream catcher if we try to to impose the desires of the ego during this time.
Also, for you personally you have your natal Neptune almost exactly conjunct this stellium in Aquarius so I'd say these themes will bear down on you even more intensely. Your Neptune is being "woken up" and it may feelVERY disorienting. However, Neptune is supposed to feel disorienting. It is putting you in touch with another world - the world of mystic, magic, dreams, the imagination and so forth - so if you're trying toimpose too much logic or structure during a Neptune time, it will likely just backfire. The Sun wants to "get ahead" and Neptune wants you get in touch with the rules of the spirit, spend time in nature, reflect, dream. It can be a difficult one to navigate because the Sun and Neptune wants such different things. I guess the key word is here is integration - exploring the intersection of dreams and reality and paying equal attention to both.
So it is very appropriate to slow down as getting your bearing will just feel like a futile exercise anyway. Like I said, your Sun is conjunct transiting Neptune so that in and of itself is hugely influential and it may seem like you are looking at everything with an underwater lens. Once you get comfortable with it and realize this time too shall pass - it can actually be a lot of fun! Your more serious-minded Capricorn Moon andthe fact that your Sun is in logical Aquarius, may make such a strong whiff of Neptune feel very weird according to your normal operation. It is encouraging youto use a different tool set which is always very weird. But it is also opening you up to receive all sorts information and apply your intuition in a way that will movie your forward, such in the nature of a Sun/Neptune conjunction.
Hope that makes sense. I'd say Aquarius is putting out some fairly high voltage. You may be capable of telekinesis - who knows? It would certainly be a Neptune transit that would reveal such an ability. And for you, it really is an intense submersion in all things Neptune. Enjoy the magical, mystery tour. Neptune is only a few degrees of moving into Aries ...and this chapter will soon close.
Best,
Hudson
