This week we are swimming in emotional tides. To begin with, Mercury is now officially retrograde and stationed at 3 degrees of the water sign Cancer. I already noticed clients and friends experiencing the retrograde energy a few days before it was exact. A lot of confusion, accidents, and emotional communication.
Neptune, which is the God of the Sea, also stationed in a water sign, i.e., Pisces. We have been experiencing the Neptune station the last few days, and it stations today at 7 degrees of Pisces, which is a mutable water sign. This is very spacey and sleepy energy.
Neptune rules intuition, spirituality, compassion, asceticism, and dreams. The lower form rules escapism, drugs, and alcohol. A lot of people have had very powerful dreams lately, and you can expect this week to be high emotions, and having a sense of feeling lost and confused.
Tap into the higher forms of Neptune and use your own unique ways of being creative. Mercury makes a trine to Neptune during the station this week, so it could be an excellent time for creative writing, creative thinking, and writing down your dreams.
Neptune is going to be retrograde through November 16, 2014. Those with planets at 5-8 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, and Sagittarius will feel it the most. Neptune can dissolve things, and it can sometimes be difficult to find a clear path. The moon today is also in Scorpio, which is the third water sign. Things might see a bit bleak at the moment. Watch a movie, listen to music, chant, and dream.
Visualize what you want and know that the fog will lift. Boy, was it foggy when I woke up this morning -- the morning sky reflected the energy of the cosmos, and I thought it was a few hours earlier than it really was. Swim along with me, and we will navigate the waves together.
"Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin' that the
City sleeps to hide
Let's swim out tonight, love
It's our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive" -- Jim Morrison, "The Doors"
