Reflections of Neptune

Updated: Mar 9

It is apparent that the more conscious one's buried wound becomes, the more painful it becomes. It is the pain which must be felt, grieved, and forgiven for healing to occur, and that can only happen when the wound is made conscious. It seems to me that what challenging Neptune contacts may contain within them, whether natally or by transit, is an exquisite sense of loss and grief, and even a profound sense of existential longing. These states are best experienced by surrendering to such a deep sense of compassion on one hand and of unity with all of nature on the other, that both the sorrow and the boundless love in the longing flow freely. Neptune truly holds within it the requirement for complete surrendering what is beyond one's control. With Neptune/Moon, for example, one still functions to meet the lunar needs for belonging, nurturing and unconditional love, but with whom, when, where, or how may not be in one's control. It can be a sense of both loss and love so deep and yet expansive that when alone in a reflective state, one can be momentarily swept away by it, to experience it, then to understand how to give it away. Over and over the caring heart may be broken open for the sake of something larger, something impersonal and sacred.
