is stationary at the 25th degree of Aquarius, a
degree which symbolizes amongst others the capacity
to leave old emotions behind by a higher
consciousness which sees the unity in everything.
Neptune arrived here at the end of April, will turn
retrograde May 26 and will go back to the 24th
degree at the end of June.
was discovered the previous time he sojourned in
Aquarius, September 24, 1846, in Berlin-Schoeneberg,
at precisely 25.52 degrees of Aquarius. A planet
which is discovered mirrors the discovery of new
principles by humanity. In general astrologers
correlate the Neptune discovery with:
the use of X-rays
* the discovery of poltergeists and the popularity
* the use of gaslamps on streets (gas is an all
pervasive substance, quite Neptunian)
* the beginning of Communism, based on materialistic
principles as well as its spiritual counterpart: the
Bahai Faith. (Geared towards universalism).
* the beginnings of discoveries of the techniques
for photography (making pictures which freeze
moments in time and space in a two dimensional
virtual way long after the moment in time is gone
already). (In September 1846 Saturn conjuncted
Neptune: fixating Neptunian things, but also, Saturn,
becoming conscious of Neptunian principles, here in
the 8th house: Connections to the afterlife).
2009 Neptune will return to the same degree as its
discoverydegree, and that means that at long last
Neptune has since it was discovered travelled
through the entire zodiac, taking 163 years to do so.
Which equals 2 human lifes (2 Uranus cycles) and 6
Saturn cycles. The first cycle meant a first
implementation and discovery of Neptunian principles.
Going through the zodiac a 2nd time may well mean
the consolidation and taking within us the
principles belonging to Neptune, no longer from the
outside, but from within (uh potentially speaking,
it may take a while for instance until Neptune gets
into Taurus and makes a square to Aquarius).
is wholly impersonal, yet functions quite often as a
desire for personal connections to the Neptunian
impulse. For "owning" it. We make personal
images of God, we think the guru is a person, (for
us only). We want special attention, where Neptune
is considered (stemming from the inborn knowledge we
are children of the One, however, we ALL
are..) If for instance
I suggest to someone with Neptune in the 5th house
that the fact that she is childless might have to do
with an evolutionary impulse to consider all
children as her children, she will usually say, yes
but I want a child of MYSELF (i.e. I want to own it). (The
desire of clinging). If I see Neptune at work
in the 7th house in a situation where it is
necessary to let go of a loved one, the person will
say: yes but I want him or her for MYSELF alone.
(The desire of clinging). if I see Neptune in
the 2nd house where God will take care of one's
income (or one's husband, grin). the person says,
yes but I want an income OF MY OWN. Neptune is about
giving, and tapping from a universal source, It
belongs no one, only humanity at large. It comes and
goes, and we cannot hold on to it. Will we learn
this in the 2nd 165-year cycle of Neptune which will
start next year?
