The first solar eclipse in a series can strike the planet either at the south or north pole. If the eclipse occurs at the descending lunar Node, then it hits Earth at the south pole. The reverse is true of an eclipse at the ascending Node. The series beginning at that south pole will then slowly work its way north every 18.03 years. The series will expire with the last eclipse striking the north pole. The eclipses at the extremes are the peripheral eclipses which tend to be weak

I like to think of the raising of consciousness like a pursuit in life that one will never totally reach, a bit like happiness, you can find fulfilment in your life through your general attitude, but you will never fully arrive at that place where all the problems disappear.
This is also true for consciousness, you can become more conscious, present and aware. But you will never fully arrive at the place where your mind is totally in the moment all the time

Although Virgo is an Earth Sign, it is ruled by Mercury/Hermes who is the god of communication. Hence this Full Moon draws our attention to both mental analysis and practical action. Virgo’s main objective at all times is to be of efficient, effective and useful service. In order to do so, Virgo requires extensive analysis of the different options and possibilities that are available. Its strength is its ability to effectively dissect and synthesise large amounts of information

The Sun and Mars are currently waxing into a square that will be exact the 6th of February at 17 degrees Scorpio-Aquarius. Both signs strive for change and inspire you to take action for a better future. However, you will not show any mercy for those who are attempting to stand in your way, hinder your expression or show you disrespect.
The challenge now is to not loose your head over small details or let

Sagittarius is one of the brightest areas of the night sky. The numerous nebulae and star clusters of the Milky Way are at their densest and the Galactic Center is at 27 degrees of Sagittarius. On the day before Christmas 2015 (UT) the beautiful multi-ringed Saturn, entered the tropical sign of the Archer.

If ‘War and Peace’ were the Aries/Libra theme, what would be the Virgo/Pisces slogan? ‘
Work and play’? Serve and pray? Heal Away?

Correlating to the mother archetype, Ceres in the natal chart represents a matrix from which we will create a personal identity and relationship prototypes. Our ability to bond, to trust, to be self-expressive, to feel safe enough to openly share our heart, to feel nourished and to nurture is seen within the Ceres chart signature.

NEPTUNE: The Nemesis OR The Knight?
Agent 64 JD “Khepri” Cogmon

Who/What is Neptune?

Neptune is  known as Poseidon In Greek Mythology. Neptune is one of the 12 Gods of Mount Olympus known as the Dodekatheon. Each “god” or “goddess” archetype is like a personality type that you get from a Meyers-Briggs or  Enneagram character test or from general numerology. Neptune is “god” of the seas, earthquakes, and tidal waves. His symbols include:  horses, bull, dolphin, and the three pronged trident. This article is just an Op-ed like commentary on our “lord” Neptune and his Poseidon adventures.

Forgive me as I interchange the use of the words “he,” “she” or “it” in an effort to embrace Neptune as both a masculine and feminine force of nature to be reckoned with. I see the mermaid archetype as being just as powerful and substantial as the male version with rippling muscles and a trident. Anyone that knows anything about the myth of Mermaid or “sirens” know about the hypnotic power and allure of their singing. Being present in the twelfth house makes Neptune/Pisces energy a mutable watery force of yin energy that is analogous to the initiating cardinal force found in Mars/Aries in the first house.

So don’t let terms like masculine or feminine mislead you, they are both culturally contrived expressions of male and female energy that dance in equality through the macrocosm and the microcosm. I share this aspect of Neptune in hopes that you will add it to the small pebbles of light that you are dropping on the scale of patriarchy in the hopes that our awareness optimizes equilibrium across the plane of collective consciousness.

Venus will be retrograde staring July 25, 2015 and Neptune and Venus are a dynamic duo. Most astrologers know Neptune as being the "higher octave" of Venus, in the same context that Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury. So when we experience ♆Neptune and Venus in a retrograde cycle at the same time, we can experience a crisis of faith or virtue. We begin to act out of integrity and disconnect from abundance altogether because we are in no space to attract the abundance that we crave.

Why does Neptune matter?

In the lowest vibration of Neptune, we find self-deception, self-undoing, denial and addiction as forms of escape. In stark contrast we find an abundance of love, compassion and empathy for ourselves and the world in Neptune’s higher vibration. An awareness of the power of love that is so profound that it expands or perception enough to unify us in thought while inspiring us to act by connecting with others locally and globally. Neptune matters because his trident or cosmic tuning fork is gradually breaking that spell of greed, selfishness and materialism and sublimating it with the higher octave of humanitarian conscientiousness, transpersonal intention, and trans-continental altruism. Uranus and Aquarius may break up the toxic parts of our global system that doesn’t work, but the Neptune/Pisces energy provides us with the creative imagination and free will to build a world that looks more like our dreams and less like a chapter from George Orwell’s “1984.”

 

Transpersonal Impact

Neptune’s global influence can expose our hidden vulnerabilities prompting us to flee and escape or rise and soar above all expectation. Neptune has a heavy influence on our dreams, our past or any feelings of guilt, especially when we are not compassionate or empathetic in our discernments or judgments of ourselves and others.

The negative potential of Neptune’s energy includes the possibility of those who struggle with despair, those who isolate themselves from society, and those who must be institutionalized. Communication with family patriarchs and matriarchs are occasionally challenged due to lack of awareness, fear, or plain old misunderstandings. This is why compassion and empathy are such important tools in your tool kits for making the most of Neptune while it cruises through Pisces for about 13 years (April 4, 2011 to March 30, 2025). Again, Neptune’s sense of interconnectedness or our symbiotic connection with the earth and other sentient beings is always contrasted with that hazy, dreamy and often euphoric sense of blissful retreat. The key is to balance your sense of civil serenity with your need for your reserved and private utopia.

Since Neptune is cruising through Pisces be careful of all forms of escapism and/or dogma, religion, excessive food consumption, or drugs. Positive influences of Neptune include remarkable intuition, increased artistic talent, sensitivity, vivid imagination, and personal and interpersonal spirituality. The ability to float in and out of “reality” makes us prone to switch hats, shoes, personas or masks with the false sense of security that these facades will make life easier. Neptune is about loving the “Wizard within,” along with the rest of the residents of OZ!

Like the PI in Pisces or Phi in the golden mean, Neptunian energy represents the creativity and improvisation that improve our lives like the infinite spiral of the Fibonacci Sequence or an elegant labyrinth representing our shared cosmic trek across the “omniverse.” Like a labyrinth, Neptune’s ways can confuse you like an ever-changing dynamic maze, or it can guide you like a yogic meditation through each of your chakras.

In your natal chart

Neptune can appear in a sign in your chart or in a particular house.  The other place of influence would be any planet in the 12th house because Neptune rules the 12th house. However, many classical astrologers will also suggest that Jupiter “co-rules” the 12th house the same way it “co-rules” Pisces. So when looking at planets in the 12th house you may want to consider some of Jupiter’s traits to be thorough.

As far as aspects go, be careful when Neptune makes a square or opposition to any of the planets in your chart. While there are some benefits to squares and oppositions under certain circumstances, when Neptune squares with a planet, it tends to create a hazy and nebulous energy that often exaggerates misunderstandings. The opposition of forces can sometime create “hang-ups” of tension that lead to nowhere or the squares can create the type of tension that leads to tsunami like changes, even if they seem uncomfortable at first. While conjunctions with other planets in the sign of Pisces may cause a lot of beneficial starts in your life, keep in mind that conjunctions and friendly sextiles can also lead to complacency. These aspects are not just pure joy and harmony. Last but not least is the artistic influence that Neptune has on everything. If you recognize “dark ages,” like behavior among our nation states, then expect Neptune to be leading the charge to create the renaissance and subsequent reformation that will usher in a utopian society on the foundation of unity.
