If you have the feeling that you've been here before you're right...we were here just a short time ago and it must have been important for the solar system to repeat the lesson. All you have to do is consider the beginnings of the symbolism and you will see that is is indeed and also why it is so important.
Neptune at any time will represent the dreams, visions, ideals, and mystical bent of an individual as well as our collective unconscious and in Pisces, Neptune's home and base of operations, that energy is magnified. This is a subtle yet powerful force that is influencing us right now in many different ways and depending on your state of self-awareness can manifest as spiritual strength or worldly delusion. How important is this right now?!? Well obviously by the amount of punctuation at the end of the last sentence I feel it's pretty important. There is powerful energy available to generate or re-invest in one's understanding of relationship with creation whether that is through an understanding of God, god, goddess,
nothingness, the universe or any other variation of reality structure.
With Mars in Virgo direct now since the middle of April the energy is not just for the abstract, meditational, visionary realm. There is a call to action and to service incorporating and honoring the visions and dreams of our spiritual nature. Creator calls for integrity often (always?) however there are times when it is more necessary than others and this looks like one of them. I am not about to make a list of or bemoan the shortcomings of society. That's been done enough and I can reference you back to my initial post here.
This aspect I think calls for the collective to take a more active, thoughtful, service oriented role in dissolving all of this societal bullshit. I know people can argue a thousand ways that a certain POTUS (president of the united states) made some sort of difference in their day to day lives but I will tell you that where it always counted for me it NEVER made any difference and when I sit down to consider what is valuable to me it is ALWAYS things that they can't touch anyway: my relationship with mystery, my awe in the experience of being alive, the integrity of my actions in a given situation, my relationships...and I learned these values through working with and in community, ritual, and deeply felt experience.
I ran into this Blue Heron while alking through Golden Gate Park the other day and as I often do I checked in with Jamie Sams and David Carson's Medicine Cards book for reference. They and the Blue Heron have an excellent message that reflects beautifully the Neptune Mars opposition:
"Blue Heron...Thank you, Sacred Waterbird,
For sending reflections to me;
The mirrors of the quest for life,
The worlds that live insideof me.
Show me how relationsips work,
With my path woven within the whole.
The lessons of kinshipwith all life,
Reflecting my spirit's eternal glow."
