Observations: Neptune Stations Direct

____temple_525by_shepa-d6qpfdg© shepa

On November 13 Neptune will station direct at 2° Pisces and if we listen deeply enough, we might hear the universe exhale the breath it took in when Neptune stationed retrograde on June 7, 2013. By and large, Neptune stations are very subtle events for most of us unless there is an exact aspect to a personal planet or our Ascendant.

Like the drugs it rules, Neptune in small doses can cure but in large doses it can kill. The same goes for romance. Just as candlelight softens while it illuminates creating a lovely romantic atmosphere; strobe lights and loud music in a nightclub prevent us from seeing the harsher effects of inebriation. Both romance and substance abuse belong to Neptune.

From October 2012 thru June 2013, Saturn in Scorpio was trine Neptune and provided the necessary boundaries to rein in Neptune’s excesses. This is no longer the case and we only have the messenger, Mercury, trine Neptune as it stations direct. Remember the old saying, “don’t shoot the messenger?” It applies in this case because all Mercury does is pass on information, good, bad or indifferent.

My Mercury dwells in the Neptune ruled twelfth house and I have experience with Mercury acting as a messenger between my conscious and unconscious mind. Many, many times over the course of my life information I needed popped into my mind as I was hovering between sleeping and being awake. The biggest challenge is learning to recall that information upon awakening!

    Wow, that’s why I always come up with things I need when I’m asleep (12th house Neptune). And probably why if I study right before sleep, I learn easily and well. I’m just glad Neptune has finally moved far enough over my Moon that it finally stopped conjuncting every time it went retrograde. 7 degrees is very loose even for a personal planet – I hope.

      Hey kathy!

      I’m just glad Neptune has finally moved far enough over my Moon that it finally stopped conjuncting every time it went retrograde. 7 degrees is very loose even for a personal planet – I hope.

      Definitely it is, especially with Neptune. Most people don’t even notice a Neptune transit unless it is exact to the degree. :)

    Me too…I always dream about things and then during that day, whatever I dreamed about is mentioned. I wish I could hone that sense more, because sometimes it is something big and important and other times trivial. sometimes hilarius, like my dreams have a real sense of humor.I am pisces sun, moon and merc and neptune just passed my moon and heading to merc at 11 degrees ..all these in the 9th house.

      Hi brn!

      Me too…I always dream about things and then during that day, whatever I dreamed about is mentioned. I wish I could hone that sense more, because sometimes it is something big and important and other times trivial. sometimes hilarious, like my dreams have a real sense of humor.

      Have you tried keeping a note pad by your bed & writing down key words, etc immediately after waking? Sometimes that helps. I do my best to repeat those ideas that pop up several times in my mind to help remember them.

      I am pisces sun, moon and merc and neptune just passed my moon and heading to merc at 11 degrees ..all these in the 9th house.

      It will be 4 yrs~ before Neptune reaches 11° :) Neptune moves very slowly. For all you Pisces folk, Neptune conjoining your Sun & other Pisces planets is a once in a lifetime event.

    Hi guys. I have Neptune right on my Libra sun at 9 square my Cap moon at 7 degrees. I am so glad to see neptune go direct.Diane you are so right when you said drugs and a romance are one. I think we have to also realize who or what god is. I have noticed that the History channel is starting to get people to see that we are all seeds of our alien ancestors and that our concept of what god or who god is. People with strong Neptune know this they just forgot what to truth really is. I also am glad to see the para normal shows that are airing now show that spirits exist and they are capturing it on camera. I know its a lot to take in but the Uranus Pluto square is trying to wake us up to the real truth of our origin. Pluto is all about evolution and we must evolve to a new truth or I fear man may self destruct. Sorry if I have offend anyone but with Neptune going direct I think alot of you with a strong Neptune can handle the truth.Thanks Diane for the work you do.

  • I have a soft spot in my heart for old Neptune ~ and all the people he wreaks havoc with, too. So romantic, just like you said. And so awful, too. He’s a heartbreaker for sure.

      Hey cj! :D

      Exactly! A small seasoning of Neptune in synastry helps couples see each other in a sympathetic light whilst too much can mean the relationship may exist only in one person or the others imagination. Seen both occur & still have trouble gauging how much is too much. LOL

    Hi Diane
    Yes it is so true that a little bit of Neptune can be fine but in large doses it can destroy reality. I have two friends who both have moon’s in Pisces and thought they were so in love until it went direct yesterday. Now one has turned cold and the other still can’t figure out what hit her. I have gone thru this so often when I was young until I had awful health problems hit me years ago and made me go into therapy. I now see with therapy and astrology combined the real world. Thank god I have moon in Cap or I would have been in a rubber room. My first astrology teacher told me it was the only thing keeping me on this planet. I am thankful now for that Cap moon. You are so right when you say a little bit of Neptune is fine but too much can kill. My mother also has Neptune square her Sun mercury and Venus in Taurus. She has been tortured by not seeing reality all her life. I am feel so blessed to have found Astrology to help keep me grounded in reality.

    Hmmm…and all this time i thought it was Venus/Pluto square Uranus causing the trouble, and I think they probably caused at least SOME of it, but Pisces direct was 1 degree opposite my 1 degree Libra Moon the same day the person I fell so insanely in love with decided to change his mind and tell me he couldn’t be in a relationship.

    He has the moon at 9 degrees Pisces, and Mercury was just retrograding in his 5th house over his Venus and Mars. I thought, hey, it’s healthy to have second thoughts…but the Neptune thing has really got me thinking.

    I thought I was finally getting the hang of Neptune, too, after all, it’s neck in neck with Pluto for planetary strength in my chart. But wow. Hope this doesn’t go on my whole life…

      It won’t . . . says the lady w/Moon conj Neptune in Libra. :D It gets really, really old after awhile & the attraction to Neptune’s romantic BS wears off. That being said, I went thru something very similar when Neptune was transiting my 1st house & was exactly semi-sextile my Libra Sun. “Insanely in love” was what it felt like. Good old Saturn Return helped too. :P
