Astrology for the Week of Nov 2, 2009
The big event in the skies this week is the planet Neptune reversing direction, called a station. Actually Neptune is one of the planets we can’t see with the naked eye but it is a nicely colored dot in a telescope if you have one, and if you have a multimillion dollar spacecraft it looks very pretty passing by.
When Neptune is activated astrologically you can typically expect a few things:
- Feelings will be strong of almost unearthly beauty and rapture and any amount of personal projection may be going on, i.e. it is not “real”, it is more our hopes and expectations than what is really there;
- Deceitful, dishonest, or delusory behaviors are touched off in people;
- Physical vitality can be mysteriously at a low point, which can cause chronic conditions to flare.
- Creativity, intuition and spirituality are stimulated, as well as the rising of compassion for others.
- The ego shrinks somewhat and we are able to see better the interconnectedness of all things.
So on Tuesday, November 4, 2009, you may see people pronouncing things which they believe with all their heart, like for instance “there will be a public option in the health insurance bill” but it is deluded from the start. Or maybe “the US wants peace for Pakistan” said while we are bombing them with drone aircraft. You could even hear thing like “the US economy is moving towards recovery”. Everybody desperately wants to believe these things, but just hoping that they will happen will not be enough.
There could be manifestations in extreme cases such as chemical or oil spills, or even things like floods or things having to do with gases. In some cases people just step right up and lie, embodying the absolute worst that Neptune can deliver. With Neptune though many times you’ll see people acting deceitfully because they think they are doing “God’s work”.
