Obfuscation is the realm of Neptune and it makes sense that much of what we have witnessed as of late may be due to the planet’s retrograde motion. Any time a planet goes retrograde there is a distinct possibility to witness a reconsideration of the characteristics that the planet represents astrologically. Much has been written about the retrograde action of a planet in this space. Neptune’s primary role in the cosmic arena is that of the collective consciousness. This is how we perceive events and people. We need look no further than to recall the Republican National Convention when a well-known reality television star walked out onto the stage in a bank of fog, obscured from our view. It was during that entrance and subsequent speech that we heard the words of a deluded personna, casting himself as the saviour. Clearly one person cannot right all that is wrong and yet, the words remain in our collective consciousness and appealed to our collective dissatisfaction. The rest remains in the pages of history and has yet to be written.
Regardless of our personal views on astrology, we can take heart in the simple fact that this is a classic illustration of the accuracy of astrology. This immersion into the realm of intangible, undefined rhetoric is the stuff that Neptune rules. With Neptune in the sign of Pisces, this cloudy image becomes even more compelling and, to some respect, convincing. The words, “I alone can fix this,” echo in our ears as we try and grasp how this might be possible. And yet, this is where we are. These comments are not bound by the opinion of this writer, but rather, representative of the accuracy of the cosmos. Now as Neptune stations direct and we begin to see the results of what many of us have chosen, we might awaken to the reality of what has transpired. Clarity may return as we come to grips with what this might entail. The situation is similar to a Greek tragedy where we are lured by the silver tongued messenger only to be tricked into an outcome that none of us could have envisioned. By the same token, this unfolding of events will also find the mechanism for self-righting, for the cosmos is just and responsible. Like a pendulum, the duality of the universe invariably swings back in due season. Responsibility and quick action will arrive as Mercury steps into Capricorn late in the week.
