Are you swimming comfortably? Neptune Retro – A time to tread water…
Fishy Folk Take Note!
Neptune appears Retrograde from the 13th June to the 19th or 20th of November in 2016.
Neptune Retrograde 2016
This is definitely one for the Pisces rising among us, plus those with Neptune highlighted strongly in the chart and those born under this zodiac sign of the Fish in general.
Before we get too excited, take note that Neptune appears Retro nearly half the time.
Yes, 40% of the year Neptune appears Retrograde.
Neptune appearing retrograde heightens our collective sensitivity and receptivity but things could still be mighty confusing.
Perhaps we can see and sense more, with heightened intuition and a different, more insightful perspective – yet our vision could still be blurry as we wrestle with the truth – true reality.
Neptune retrograde can internalize your fears and anxieties by stripping away the illusions, dreams and false realities that have clouded your vision. The destruction of your fantasy world will reveal those harsh realities you sought to avoid at some stage in the past. Maybe you have been kidding yourself about true love, your financial situation or your career prospects.
From 26th June to 3rd July, Neptune has a bit of a run in with Saturn spelling a sense of dissatisfaction.
Serious Saturn is the cane rod, creating rules and structure, and the current Neptunian vibe is vibrating on a totally different wavelength – yet both will want to be honoured.
People are currently inclined to be unrealistic, idealistic and self-deluding.
Don’t be one of them.
Be more grounded and realistic now, regain a sense of realism rather than disappointment (as oppose to loss and longing).
Figure out what’s real and what’s fantasy – see your horoscope below to understand what areas this might play out in for you.
Avoid the following:
Drugs (including strong medicine), chemicals, stimulants, addictive personalities, psychic attractions, overwhelming people and places that drain your energy…
