Neptune will be in retrograde just a few hours before the June Solstice. Let this be said again- the planet of dreams, ambition and the state of consciousness will be in retrograde. Even to the uninitiated, this would seem like a big deal.
Neptune would retrograde in its ruling zodiac of Pisces until November 27th. This would bring out new possibilities in the life you lead, as in looking at the world from a completely different point of view. This might not match your reality, but it will definitely highlight what could be your reality.
Neptune in Pisces is energy in its purest and rawest energy. And if we are observant enough, we might be able to use this energy for our own spiritual awakening. For, although it is going to be in retrograde for most of the following months, it will be highly active in June, making us listen to all the wisdom it has to share. And you better listen to it.
Neptune is the thin veil, that separates reality, from a facade. It puts a mask between this world and the next, because of its dreamy and watery nature.
The strength in Neptune’s energy lies in us being able to tear the veil between what’s true and what’s not and distinguish what we see, what we feel and what we touch. It asks us to be in touch with our higher spirit, which would make us question the authenticity of everything we see. The main adage here is- not all that sparkles is gold.
Neptune wants us to go beyond our realm of understanding into the next. Breaking through the veil, the fog, and the mist onto the other side. Interestingly Neptune’s retrograde is to an advantage for us, as we would be able to finally decipher its misty and ethereal nature.
We would be able to seek what we have truly desired, by going above and beyond what we thought was the limit.
There is always this notion that only the bigger things on earth affect us. This is horribly wrong, for the smaller things in life affect us equally, if not more. Think back to an incident that gave you an epiphany. Any incident that changed you to who you are now. Any incident that made you realize that the way you saw this world needed to be changed.
Wasn’t it a small thing?
Think about how minuscule that small moment was when you had to change who you thought you were. It could be as simple as a phone call, or a text message. It could as rudimentarily be nothing more than a message from a loved one. All you need to do is understand what it is, and Neptune is going to help you with that.
Despite this, the most important thing to remember is that it doesn’t really need an event or a trigger. You can change your life, your reality just by thinking that you need to do this. You need to change who you are, and you need to form an identity that belies that.
When Neptune is in retrograde, it would ask us to change our beliefs and our thoughts, to make changes in our very reality. For, if we change the way we look at things, those things themselves would change their meaning to us. We need to let go of preconceived notions that we have festering inside us, and let go of ideas that we previously thought to be the truth.
Neptune would allow us to veer through the fog one last time, realizing what our life is at this present stage so that we can analyze what we need for the future, and what can simply be left back in the past. You can’t change your reality if you keep on holding onto what drags you into the past.
Although Neptune would mostly be felt in June in its retrograde state, it would slip in with the rest of the planets in retrograde soon after.
This would lead to a phenomenon of us retreating, slowing down, introspecting and realizing that maybe our life, our truths, aren’t all that real, and maybe reality is something we can see by letting go of our rose-tinted glasses.
Let this be said – you can’t fool yourself. You know what drags you down, and what sets you free. And when you move in that direction, Neptune will always be guiding you.
