Are you swimming comfortably? Neptune Retro – A time to tread water…

NEPTUNE RETROGRADE 2020

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.

Delusion Possible!

From the 23rd June to the 28th November 2020, Neptune will be retrograde, with the worst implications being unrealistic, idealistic and self-deluding tendencies.

Don’t be one of those!

Be more grounded and realistic; 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! Avoid!

Super Sensitive? Avoid the following:

  • Drugs (including strong medicine),
  • Chemicals,
  • Stimulants,
  • Addictive personalities,
  • Psychic attractions,
  • Overwhelming people and places that drain your energy…
