Neptune Retrograde: June 19th 2017- Nov 25th 2018
16°15′ Pisces – 13°41′

Neptune stations retrograde June 19th 2018, 16°15′ degrees of Pisces. During the last few months with Neptune moving direct it was a time to connect with our inner intuitive self, our dreams, our divinity in the scheme of the great big picture and what is going on within the chaos in this supposedly rational world! Now it’s time to make sense of it, in Neptunian ways. We are all invited on an inner journey, to explore further his intuitive, magical and inspirational ways. to re-align, re-believe, re-connect, re-imagine, re-dream, re-inspire, re-call and re-source. If we have lost faith, it is now good  time to find the flow again, to regain it!

With a retrograde pass the planet’s focus and meaning is amplified, even becoming easier to grasp, and much more important to connect to. Our Neptunian selves become more internalised, privatised, as though the dreams we have ventured out to glean and the truths we have found  over the past few months now need their special time for incubation and development. Since November  2017, and just think how much has changed since then in your life,  Neptune has been direct having moved from 11° Pisces to 16° Pisces, a time when for many of us many dreams have been realised, yet for some dreams may have been shattered. Collectively, our dreams seem to continually be shattered by the happenings around us, as always, yet the way we cope with it,  is always believing in a better way. Believing in the unknown, and having faith in the future are Neptune’s big and often very difficult lessons. So here we are about to integrate our new found faith in what life has recently shown us , which have either taken away or added to our belief in living in this material, chaotic,  yet magical world.

 There is magic all around, yet some of us can’t see it. It is no wonder, as the world around us continues to disturb our sense of living a wonderful life. Whichever way it’s been or is for you, the retrograde, now asks for that integration. It stems from what we believe is possible and what we as individuals and as a collective believe the world, life has to offer us. This period of retrograde is now a time for this incubation, when we rework, reconfigure and redesign our world according to Neptune!

What we believe is possible becomes ever more important. We all know how much faith and belief gets people through the most difficult of life’s hurdles, often associated with Jupiter  and religion, yet Neptune’s belief and faith is more a spiritual, natural, all knowing kind, not one associated with dogma, social control and gurus! Neptune is much freer than that, he has no bounds, bonds or ties,  is eternal and ageless! As we know Neptune is the planet of dreams, of universal knowing, of mysteries, of living in divine grace, being inspired by life, nature, science, people. Without Neptune’s attunement we live in fear of the unknown, we mistrust, we become paranoid, we become depressed, we have nothing to believe in. Neptune’s energy is that of soul and spirit, of transcendence, of tapping  into our psychic ability, or living and being in a connected and spiritual world, if we don’t have these connections, we are lost.

To understand the archetypal Neptune is to look at the myths of Poseidon/Neptune. The-God of the Sea was always messing with the  heroes journey’s in Greek myth, as they would always be  cast adrift, lost at sea, not knowing what lies ahead. Neptune would make his intended victims lose their way in his realm, he would cast nets and trap them and make them stay lost at sea for long periods of time. Why?

So that one would learn to trust in the unknown, and have faith in the unseen, to sense being led by an intuitive knowing, a very primal and cosmic understanding, a soulful flow!

Neptunian types have this quality. Pisces is like that. Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces, and both are tuned to the never ending cycles of life and eternal consciousness. There is an understanding that there is no begining and no real end, we transcend from one to another. We are all seeds of the future somehow. It’s important to remember Jupiter here as well as the ancient ruler of Pisces as Jupiter is an archetype that at its’ best, trusts and believes in himself and acts accordingly! What can go wrong if you are indeed living in trust with your universe?  What you believe and have faith in, has much to do with health of spirit, body and mind!  Belief and trust in yourself and your actions is a key to trusting the world around you, for the steps you take come ultimately by your will. If you do not own this within yourself, then this retrograde pass is indeed the next evolutionary test for your lessons from the God of the Sea!

Jupiter and Neptune are currently in an ongoing trine aspect, connecting the depths and the dots, and the great need to passionately engage in life!

As Neptune turns retrograde,  Mars is also stationing to turnaround at this time. Our actions become ever more important. At the South Node in Aquarius,  check where and what you are sensing RIGHT now, about shifting directions, where you are agitated and where energy maybe mis spent!  At the South Node and in Aquarius, Mars cuts what needs to be separated form, in order to free oneself to move in more positive directions. Our gaols, dreams and collective ideals all come into the picture, we don’t want to give up on them, quite the opposite. What will it take to develop it further.  Retrogrades generally are more intense, as planets make a POINT, in a certain part of our charts for a reason! Mars interestingly is the most infrequent retrograde of the planets , occurring every 2 years, yet in Aquarius even more so, once every 32 and then every 47 years, and repeat. Considering how rare this is, we know better how important this is, as Mars retrogrades  from 8° Aquarius, to 26 Capricorn, over the next few months. More on Mars rx in Agent 17’s article and in C*I*A webinars!

With Mars and Neptune stationing together, we are prompted to move ourselves above and beyond our world’s limitations, believe and be something greater than we have been told we can be. We are changing our minds and reprogramming our thinking, adapting to quantum values and changing our beliefs to adapt to the changing world and our evolving consciousness. Be assured, that no one stands alone in the world of Neptune, we are all in this together, through Neptune we know we are all infinitely connected, we understand more these days on how we live in a connected universe, how our hearts, our minds direct our world. As a collective we are tested to believe and stay positive in this crazy mixed up world, but what happens if we lose faith in it all? What happens if we no longer try to live up to our ideals, or know we can forge the dreams we dream of.  We know and hear of dreams coming true all the time and people accomplishing impossible things beyond all comprehension and against all odds.

Neptune moves slowly and now with the retrograde, focuses on only a few degrees in our astrology charts. Wherever these few degrees of Pisces are in your astrology chart will be the focal point for this incubation. The place to reconnect to your inner dream. Retrogrades have potency as the planet passes closest to the Earth.

Note trines, sextiles and squares from Neptune to  planets or angles between  17 and 12 ° in your charts (if you are more advanced you could ad more aspects) also by progression and solar arc. See from where he challenges you the most at this time. It’s like being at a Neptune Boot Camp. What needs to be developed the most from Neptune’s realm. Use an orb of 2-3 degrees each side. If the retrograde of Neptune squares a planet in your chart be mindful of the challenge to keep your dream alive, challenges will help you sort out if the dream is true, authentic and meant to be. The tests by square push us to make something real, to work towards something we really want, and help sort out that which is no longer relevant to our big story! With an opposition, for anything in Virgo, we are able to see more clearly what is we are being confronted with, what it looks like, what is it we need to be able to integrate into our being, accept, live with in order to continue on a freer and more illuminated path. Neptune like all outer planets, also ask us to give, somewhere to let go, to perhaps relinquish control, which quite often our world dictates to us. Going with the flow so often surprises us. It’s all about the sacred balance in the end, for always going with the flow also doesn’t work. Be mindful, when to let go to alleviate stress, and problems can often be resolved in other ways, not with the usual push! Rember Mars will be retrograde in this time frame too!  Alternative actions are called for!

In this time also pay special attention to dreams, to images, to symbols and stories. Get yourself out into nature, to the ocean, go on a retreat, get out of that rat race. Find out where and why you are racing? It’s time to dive into the waters of Neptune, the universal dissolver, into the essential ingredient of life itself to reconnect to our truer selves.  In Neptune’s realm we search further for the meaning behind life and take on our spiritual quest to reach divine heights.

During this retrograde Neptune reminds us that life can truly be about living a dream, we just need to believe it!
