Neptune

Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun right behind Uranus (tehehehe). Neptune has 5 rings with 14 moons. Because of the color, it is named after the Roman sea god Neptune. This gas giant takes 165 years to orbit the sun lasting in one sign for about 14 years depending if it is going direct, or if it is going through the various stages of retrograde.

Neptune rules the 12th house,  co-rules the sign Pisces with Jupiter even when Pisces is the sole expression of Neptune. With water as the element for this planet, with a  mutable modality. Even though the god Neptune is male the planet is feminine given that the sign, house, and element attributed to it are all feminine Neptune is about illusions, glamour, it is elusive and cunning. Keep that in mind when you are dealing with Pisces most of the time the victim card is a cunning ploy. Very few Neptunian/Pisces/12th house people are truly gullible. If they listen to their intuituion they realize any games someone else is trying to play with them. Often times the seasoned Neptunian is five steps ahead. Do not underestimate them.

Neptune is a planet that governs the contemporary in a sense it is a generational planet like the rest of the modern planets Uranus and Pluto included. It regulates over the collective subconscious, and it is a planet closely related to the other side of the vail and the dead. Yes, I know it is more recognized that Pluto rules the dead. Though from experience, personal and professional, Neptune dominate people or those with strong 12th house placement and Neptune aspects encounter more of the other side than not. The difference in encounters of death between the two planets is from perspective. Neptune accepts death and the dead as natural and every day whereas Plutonic death is a catalyst for transformation. With Pluto, it is felt more harshly than not forcing the softer side of someone to have a mini death within in order to continue on. An example of Neptune dealing with the dead someone with Neptune in the 4th house may grow up near or across from cemeteries and are more inclined to have a mother or family who can see the other side. Whereas a Plutonic 4th house person would have to go through power struggles, violence, and symbolic death to survive their ordeals. When death happens Plutonically it is soul crushing. Though, think of it as something to make you durable.

Neptune dominant people are imaginative, creative, most of the time they are a bit psychic. They are very artistic, also can easily pick up makeup and glamour better than any other planetary dominant. They need their time alone to recharge and space to. There may be a tendency to desire to get lost through spirituality or substance abuse.

The opposing planet for Neptune is Mercury. The Neptune Mercury dynamic is of vagueness and precision respectively. Though both planets are about understanding the ever-changing world around them Neptune does so by recognizing the subconscious and emotions that are by nature incomprehensible. While Mercury gains understanding in its environment deducing topics outside of emotions in practical ways. For the feminine expression of Mercury what makes sense before should make sense again. Neptune moto would be what is is or what will be will be. Then flip a situation to benefit the Neptunian.

If you want to work with this planet metaphysically or magically, I would advise studying the ocean, learning about ocean deities. Study the gods Poseidon, Neptune, and Yemaya, learn sailor lore. a good day for Neptune is Friday just as it is for Venus. Learn about all forms of art, music, art, theater, etc. Understand the subconscious and metaphysics. I hope you the best on your journey.

The Planets!!!!

Western astrology is a geocentric alchemical art relating the zodiac and movement of the planets to what happens here on earth. Astrology goes with one of the universal laws, the law of correspondence. Modern astrology has 10 planets with the Sun and Moon considered as planets. Here is a list of those planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto. Each planet governs either one or two zodiac signs. Within astrology, it is good to know there are 7 traditional and 3 modern planets. Now, the next few sentences bleed into occult and alchemy but as this blog progresses, it will make sense. The traditional planets rules correlate to the 7 vowels- a, e, i, o, u, w, y; The 7 days of the week starting with the Moon in the U.S.- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday; and the 8 octaves C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C beginning and ending with Saturn.

So let’s talk more about the 7 traditional planets Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Five out of the seven planets rule two zodiac signs giving a masculine and feminine quality to those five astrological planets. Mercury has Gemini as the masculine and Virgo as the feminine. Venus has Libra as the masculine and Taurus as the feminine. Mars has Aries as the masculine and Scorpio as the Feminine. Jupiter has Sagittarius as the masculine and Pisces as the feminine. Saturn has Aquarius as the masculine and Capricorn as the feminine.  Only those five planet ruling two signs are able to go retrograde- an easy way to explain retrograde planets are expressed in the feminine aspect, or the planet turned inward, with a Saturnian quality to them. I will elaborate more when I get to the retrograde planet blogs. The Sun and Moon only rule one sign each, Leo and Cancer respectively.  Also, they will never go retrograde. This is because the Sun and Moon are already internal in us.  The Sun being the Ego while the Moon the inner mind and emotions.

The Modern system has the additional three outer planets: Uranus ruling Aquarius only, Neptune ruling Pisces only, and Pluto ruling Scorpio only.  Retrogrades with these planets make the energies of them difficult to express and stronger in our lives. It is good to know these are very slow moving planets. Because they move so slow they stay in a zodiac sign long enough to affect generations of people. Hence why they are also called generational planets.  Each planet governs an aspect of society at large. Uranus shows how a generation, or a person changes and rebels bringing in a new era. Neptune is the unconscious influence of a society. Pluto is the destructive or transformative aspect of a society.

That is all for the intro of the Planets.  I can’t wait to get into the details of each and every one of them!!!!

astrology, Zodiac 1.0

Pisces 1.0

Now we can cross the veil to learn about Pisces. Pisces is a mutable water sign represented by to fish connected and swimming in opposite directions. The time period for Pisces is February 18th to March 20th. They are the feminine expression of Jupiter and the sole expression of Neptune. In mythology, Neptune is the god of the sea…well fresh water and governed over horses. (okay, my two cents in this I feel he was an earth or forest god, but whatever…I’ma keep on this path) He was one of the gods eaten by his father, Saturn. But, was later saved by Jupiter and they all fought the Titans at took over the world As Gods yea!

Neptune rules earthquakes, is extremely emotionally unstable, rule over oracles. His day is July 23, the festival of Neptune. So that is info on the god. Neptune the Astro planet governs glamor, imagination, psychics, moving between worlds, addictions, drugs, and alcohol. What about the sign… Pisces comes from the 12th house in astrology representing the collective unconscious, imagination, sickness, or addictions, captivity, being alone, spirituality, all those cool things.

Pisces have a vast imagination where they can create and dream within their own world. Though, to most on the outside of that world, it would look like they aren’t doing much in the mundane like the opposite sign Virgo who needs to be constantly doing things and constantly working to stay somewhat sane. Most people see Pisces as a weak or fragile sign but that would be a mistake to do so. They have strong intuitions and are extremely cunning. It would not be wise to try to pull a fast one on them- It will come back to haunt you.  Remember this sign understand the unconscious motives of those around them they can catch on to sketchy people if they trust their intuition. The ability for them to feel or take on the emotions and unconscious of others is the reason why people may see this sign as moody.

The best way for Pisces to handle this is to have time alone to process and understand their own emotions. Writing out how they feel or talking to someone one on one will help a lot. Also going on nature walks or learning about something to take their mind off of how they feel or what they are interpreting from others will help. Not, trying to drown it out with booze or other things- it would make everything worse. In their relationships, they would like a partner they can depend on. Pisces desires someone to ground them and help keep the day to day in order working properly. Though, those partners most of the time are hypercritical, nerves, and would try to perfect the Pisces energy even those Pisces is just fine the way they are. Pisces have the capability to be gurus and spiritual leaders, they will find luck and fortune when they work at making an image, a career or a good life for themselves. Careers to think about for Pisces would be an anesthesiologist, plastic surgeon, pharmacologist, own a bar, fashion, astrology or a spiritual practice, or an artist. To be honest, a Pisces can do pretty much anything and strike gold with it.

 

The phrase for Pisces is I believe.
