The week starts with Mercury entering the sign of Aquarius, so ideas fly all over the place. You can feel an excitement with this placement and we will want to explore and talk about things that may not always hold an interest for us. It's also a great time to come up with unique solutions for long term issues.
Mid week, Venus and Mars make contact, that is always a signal that love is in the air, but the contact is an opposition so you may find you need to really work hard at any relationships you want to peruse. Misunderstandings and tensions are short lived but can feel intense.
Then, the planet Neptune takes center stage. He is entering the sing of Pisces for a 14-year time frame. The last time Neptune was in Pisces, except for a short stay last summer, was in the mid 1800’s, so this is a big event. I have talked about this transit in a few newsletters and will be following up on this with something just about this transit. But in general, Pisces and Virgo planets in the early degree’s of the sign are going to have a strong dose of Neptune energy. This can feel a little unnerving. It can also be more emotional as you feel things more than you usually do. Neptune energy is not a grounded energy, so it can have you feeling out of sorts or spacey for a while. Neptune can help the skeptic learn trust. We will all take a collective deep breath and at times may feel like we are on a path with no real end in sight until we get use to this new energy. The changes we see under Neptune will not be as harsh as the many changes we have had over the last couple of years, but we will realize a slow movement towards looking at life differently. This can happen on a personal level, but more importantly it will happen in the collective consciousness of the human race.
During the next 14 years, we will start to look at our oceans more seriously, we may find they are more damaged than we realize. We will also see new drugs come out that can alleviate suffering. I also think we will start to have a change in end of life care and treatments. Drugs that are now illegal may become legalized, especially marijuana.
Neptune is the planet that wants to save and help everyone, so we may see an uptick in humanity wanting to help those who are less fortunate, we will surely see a different attitude towards those who suffer any sort of injustice.
