Sun conjunct Neptune

Neptune framed

The Sun and Neptune came together in Pisces in exact conjunction very early this morning at 2:18am. Neptune, known as the God of the Sea, represents the depths of the mind, a deep subconscious ocean, and is linked to intuition, dreams, fantasies, and sometimes unfortunately delusions and deception. With the Sun hitting Neptune, it brings things to light. The subconscious rises to a level of consciousness and awareness.

This conjunction is significant because the sign Pisces is ruled by Neptune. Therefore it’s a powerful transit that I believe not only allows us to dream, but also gives us the power to turn our dreams into reality. Use this energy to your advantage. I am a firm believer that our thoughts shape our reality. If you truly believe in your dreams, nothing is impossible.

We are in a very fluid, water-focused period, with the Sun as well as a Stellium (many planets) in Pisces. Plus the Sun’s counterpart, the Moon, ruler of Cancer, is now traveling through Cancer. The Moon also represents the subconscious on a more emotional level. My best advice is to ride the waves and go with the flow of where this transit leads you. Do not be surprised if you experience very deep or vivid dreams during this time. You may also find that your intuition is particularly sensitive and keen right now. Listen to your gut, it may be trying to tell you something.

With Sun conjunct Neptune, we may discover truths but also uncover lies or deceptions. Things we believed were true, may no longer be reality. That is the downside of Neptune and Pisces. It can bring disappointment, and we may become disillusioned and lose faith in humanity or the plans we have for our future. However, if we dig a little bit deeper, we will uncover a valuable message, a gem in disguise, a diamond in the rough. To find our true selves and our true purpose, we must dig deep. We have to be willing to let go of the illusion, the plans we’ve fooled ourselves to pursue, so that we can discover our real dreams. And in order to make those dreams come true, we must step out of the depths of our own fears and insecurities and truly believe in ourselves.

My wish for everyone during this transit is that you to find that sunken treasure buried deep in the ocean of your souls. May your dreams become reality.


Saturn Retrograde: February 18 – July 8, 2013


Saturn retrograde begins on February 18th and goes direct on July 8, 2013. Do not start anything new or important during Saturn retrograde (e.g., new job, business, etc.). If you want to start something, it’s best to wait until after Saturn goes direct on July 8th. If you jump into anything during this time, especially without proper preparation, you will likely find yourself struggling. Note: April 30-May 1 (Mars opposes Saturn), and July 1-3 (Saturn squares Venus and Ceres). Be careful making any major decisions during these dates, especially financial ones the first few days of July (Saturn square Ceres). Also note, Mercury retrograde February 23-March 17. Very bad time to start anything new. Hold off if you can.

Saturn is a restricting force. It’s about rules, regulations, responsibilities and limitations. The structure that governs our lives. It also teaches us about setting boundaries and how to say no. Saturn retrograde slows things down so that we can lay a proper foundation for our future. It gives us time to really fine tune our plans and strategies. It’s time to go back and fix the things that have been hanging over our heads and bogging us down. Fix them for good. It will be a serious and sobering time for a lot of us. Time to do work. These are the seeds we plant for a bountiful harvest. Best of luck to you all.

February 23 – March 17 (Mercury Retrograde)
April 30 – May 1 (Mars opposes Saturn)
July 1 – July 3 (Saturn squares Venus/Ceres)
