Well you’ve had a month of Uranus in Aries – how are you holding up? Has your hair caught fire, have you had a brilliant idea, are you moving faster than superman? If not don’t worry, there are 8 years of this influence so your turn will come. Expect the world to come up with new ideas, scientific breakthroughs, maybe some earthquakes, fires and floods too. Mother nature will be kicking the fleas off if we don’t get it together (we’re the fleas by the way, what ungrateful guests we are as a whole). But with Neptune’s help we can stop the doom and gloom. The planet doesn’t have to change if we change ourselves.
But just when you thought this was your only concern, Neptune the planet of spirituality, creativity and illusion is coming home after 156 years. All you Pisceans will become mystics (or drug addicts, alcoholics or con artists), Gemini’s, Sagitarian’s and Virgo’s are going to get whiplash from all the illogical thinking going on, and the rest of you should work on your karma. This might even be the time when we really and truly meet aliens from another planet.
When any planet moves into his home sign, Pisces in this case, they are stronger and more powerful than ever. Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, the two fishes swimming in opposite directions – yin and yang, positive and negative, male and female. Pisces rules Spirituality and the Arts. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the completion of a cycle of life, followed by Aries who begins anew.
This is a profound happening for the planet. It will affect our lives individually of course, but Mother Earth too welcomes this return. It will make us all kinder, more caring, more loving, more concerned with the overall good. It is the harbinger of the new way of life we have been looking for. But Harry Potter’s wand won’t manifest all this magically for us. We have to get busy with the business of “owning” a new way of life. You say you want a better world? What are you doing about it? Are your thoughts full of bright futures and happiness, or are you pissed off and feeling powerless about everything. Change your mind, change your future. Spend time daily seeing a happier, healthier world full of happy people, where love and friendship abounds, and life with a spirit of generosity is the norm. Writing it down is even better. Manifest the future.
Neptune is coming home for the first time since 1856. S/he will be so relieved, so exhausted from the long journey and so content – for a time, but then the work of the planet will pick up pace. The pace for Neptune is slow and deliberate however, its got 13 years to finish the job. Why rush into things when you can daydream? This is one of the spells woven by Neptune, you can fritter your thoughts and dreams away with no action. Don’t waste this awesome opportunity.
Neptune wants you to connect to God (universe/creator/he/she/it), in the true sense of the word. This is his mission. Bring the divine into your life. You must open your heart and reconnect to your source, so long since forgotten in a place where “reality” rules. But spirit is more real than anything. And Neptune wants you to know that, to connect to that, to love that, to open your heart to God and let him live within you so you can spread his joy around.
If you don’t pursue the spirit during this transit, you may fall into despair. There will be a rise of drug addiction and alcoholism during this transit, as there are more Piscean drug and alcohol abusers than any other sign of the zodiac. Their hearts ache for heaven, but their eyes only look down and they forget to look up, or better still, within. It’s also a time when thinking and logic might take a back seat. It’s time to FEEL. While you are in this stupor, con artists, liars and thieves will have a hey day. Think long before jumping into contracts as the people you think you know so well may not be quite so good as you thought. Be sure is all I am saying. Take a second look in all things.
The good news is that this is the pipeline to the Universe, to our TRUE selves. It’s the dawning of the age of Aquarius idea for old hippies. Peace, Love and Rock and Roll baby. And the arts will blossom. Lots of great music, movies, art will appear. It’s a renaissance. Get out your charcoal, your watercolors, your clay or your typewriter and get busy. Ideas will flow like raging rivers. (I am starting back to work on my book again. It’s time!)
It is time for us to become spiritual warriors, to bring the light into this world, to fight the darkness that only seems to be winning. (Newt Gingrich really???) The question is, are you up for the challenge? It’s time to WORK at cleaning your closets and making way for the NEW. This won’t happen magically and flip everyone to bliss. This is work – deep emotional stuff we would rather not look at. (Thanks Skye for making me cry rivers and get it out of my system. I am healing with many boxes of Kleenex by my side.)
Our own personal darkness prevents the light from coming forward. We have to release our fear, our doubt, our guilt and our lack of loving ourselves. We are billion year old beings, who are caught in a web, which denies us our heritage. We are light and energy. You are made from God and are God. You can manifest more than you know. But the trick is do you BELIEVE you can? You were born for this time. It’s here. Get off your butts and make this world Utopia.
But hey, this is God we’re talking about. It’s time to put God into practice. Dare we own it? Say it? Embrace it? It is time to invite God into your life, and not with the Bible but with an open heart, free from fear and all its manifestations and open ourselves up to be the Spiritual Warriors who bring light back into this world. We ARE the light workers if we care about these things. Have you always thought you had a mission and buried that because it smacked of so much ego? If you did, then score one for the darkness. Working for God is a calling. If you let his love into your heart there can be no ego. You live in joy from within, and if you do that, you are an inspiration to others. Your heart filled with love affects the energy field of the planet. It washes away the doubt and fear. It washes away the veil that darkness has put over the planet. It brings light into the hearts of say, the Christian Coalition followers, or people who have no faith at all.
It’s time to look at who you really are and face it. To cry, sob even, to jump for joy at how magnificent you are, to own it and be a shining star to others, to pray and meditate as a means of connecting to the source, and love each other on a truly humanitarian level.
Talk to God all the time. Ask for help. Ask for enlightenment. Ask for guidance, forgiveness, rejuvenation and healing. Ask for like-minded people to come into your life. We are stronger in numbers. Bond with true seekers, meditate together, read inspirational books so you stay in tune with the light workers who fill the heavens now with their presence, waiting for us to ask. But we must ask.
Angels do not come forward without being asked. Talk to the Universe all the time, (Did you get it that you need to ASK?) Don’t wait for God to call you, you call him. In the next 13 years we can change the world. And it all starts with 2012, and Neptune is here to show us the way.
And you will have erased some of your old karma by doing the work within yourself that needs to be done.
These are exciting times. But no one ever said they would be safe and quiet times.
(May and June brings back the Uranus/Saturn/Pluto aspects. I sadly suspect these will be trying months.) 2012 is going to be memorable, that’s for sure.
I hope we can all get on board and become who we came here to be. I wish you all the best and much success in your journey. Much Love, Yvonne
