Inspiration is the word for this two week period with Neptune making a station in the sky and resuming forward motion on Wednesday, November 13. Of course we can’t see Neptune in the sky, we need a very powerful telescope, and we also have to trust that astronomers aren’t telling us something that is not so.
Supposedly you can deduce the existence of Neptune because of anomalies in the orbits of other planets, but I find it interesting that we have to trust in word of authorities that there is a Neptune out there. The planet of inspiration, infinite compassion, and non-dimensional consciousness, we can’t see it with our naked eye like we can Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, not to mention the Sun and Moon.
Nevertheless, Neptune represents the invisible authority, that omnipresent, all-powerful one who supposedly tries our patience from time to time, expecting us to embrace Its mysterious ways and trust in Its ultimate designs on us. Our visible rulers are simple enough to understand: don’t break the rules and you won’t get your hand slapped, house taken away, thrown in jail or worse, etc.
Our visible rulers also say “do this, do that, and expect this.” Pay your bills on time, pay your taxes, go to school here, and apply for these types of jobs; then you can expect to retire in relative paradise…..or so we are led to believe. It’s hard to say who you can really trust these days. People in Europe are having their wealth snatched out from them with the various bailouts, bail-ins, and the gamut of fees, taxes and other thefts up and down the money trail. We’re used to it over here in the US also, perhaps worst of all, borrowing from the future to pay the present with deficit spending and perpetual borrowing from a shadowy financial class, the one percent of the one percent.
The visible rulers offer us a smaller kingdom, some sort of respect and prestige; a little castle on a lot. The other invisible ruler offers us a much bigger kingdom, not quite in our ken at the time, and usually we have to die in order to receive it. The visible ruler’s promises are fast proving to be less than satisfactory; the other invisible one’s promices….well, unconditional happiness does tend to promote good health, prosperity in the long run, and peace of mind, which is more than what the visible ruler offers…..
Neptune says: be happy here now, for no particular reason. Just because. There needs to be no preconditioned criteria for happiness, just that you embrace it without reservation, without hesitation. Let go of reason, expectation, and attachment to anything because they limit and constrain the limitless potential of the spirit-thing that you are.
Your ego defines you but it at the same time limits you. Neptune dissolves egoic bonds in the psyche and liberates the true energies of consciousness, returning you to your native state not unlike God Himself.

Optimism and the sense of adventurous initiative will be high, promises may be big and bold. Ideas, philosophy and spirituality connected to ethics, doctrine and ceremony will be prominent themes. (Sun trine Jupiter)
Wednesday, Nov 13, Neptune Stationary Direct
Connecting to the here and now may be a little difficult in light of the contemplation of hoped for future possibilities. Being open to intuition and inspiration can be profitable, and not necessarily in a materialistic way. Others may struggle with their dependencies, addictions and various deceits of behaviors. Frustrations regarding tradition and progressivism may brew underneath, creating unrest. Sometimes we spin our wheels, but we don’t have a clear idea where we are going. The question should be do we have to have a clear idea where we are going necessarily? Is there not an element of faith and trust in an elusive concept of destiny at work also? (Neptune direct, Saturn biquintile Uranus)
