From June 28th to December 3rd, we are about to get a reality check both personally and collectively as Neptune, the planet of mystery, spirituality, illusions, and delusions turns retrograde. Neptune retrograde is very interesting because it’s the one time where a planet going backward gives us the benefit of clarity. With this Neptune transit, we will get a dose of reality that moves us away from perceptions that are tinged with fantasy so that we can be honest about who and what we’re dealing with.
Neptune Gets a Dose of Reality
Neptune is associated with spirituality, mysticism, dreams, and anything abstract. Because of the nebulous nature of Neptune, it can be difficult to really pin down what something or someone is. Neptune is also one of the gas planets making it one of the most confusing to understand. In general, there’s just something very elusive and untouchable about Neptune that is both attractive yet confusing.Read More »
Reversals in Neptune Perception
Have you ever really considered why you perceive things the way that you do? Is your perception offering you clarity or is there something amiss? With Neptune retrograde, we will experience reversals in our perceptions. The energy of Neptune/Pisces is the energy of rose-colored glasses where the perception is colored by idealism. With Neptune in Pisces retrograde, by taking off these glasses, we get a very important wake-up call in regards to whom and what we are dealing with.
When our perceptions aren’t rooted in reality, it can be difficult to grasp what we’re dealing with. So, this Neptune retrograde is a chance to bolt us out of any deception that we have about ourselves as well as others.
What’s Real? What’s Fake?
Do we really know what is real and what is an illusion? The Neptune retrograde transit makes it possible for us to consider and question not only our perceptions as Neptune/Pisces energy is very good at perceiving in a manner that others do not. The only issue is that what we perceive through the Neptunian fog is not always necessarily accurate. Under this Neptune retrograde, we have the opportunity to connect to dimensions and awareness levels that are beyond the concrete. However, with the energy of Neptune retrograde, any fog and confusion that we are dealing with will be removed so that we can get in touch with what is truly in front of us.
Is the person that you’re dealing with truly who they say they are, or is it all just an illusion? Are you picking up on some energy that you don’t really understand, but you’ve been brushing it off as being nothing? Well, this Neptune retrograde transit will help us stop doubting our realities and really see everything for what it truly is. At this time, our intuition could be greatly heightened if you’re willing to move forward on the revelations that Neptune in Pisces reveals to us and its retrograde motion.
Wading Through the Fog
Neptune is a gaseous planet, and it’s known for producing fog. Fog is hard to navigate through and often times if you want to do so successfully, you need to go very slowly or use your intuition. With the Neptune retrograde, we get the opportunity to clear the fog so to speak. If there’s something that has been making life a bit difficult because we don’t lack clarity, then now is the time to get this clarity that will allow us to move forward. When we choose to seek out the clarity, Neptune retrograde graces us with the opportunity to clear out the fog so that we can see clearly, and seeing clearly gives us the opportunity to move forward with certainty knowing where we are going.
When Spirit Meets Reality
One of the important aspects of Neptune retrograde is the reconciling of spirit with flesh. Neptune rules Pisces a sign that has one foot in the physical realm and the other foot in the spiritual realm. With Neptune retrograde, many of us called to remember why we incarnated in human form in the first place. It will be from the perspective of the soul’s calling and the yearning to solidify one’s purpose in this physical realm.
Questions like why am I here? What did I come into this physical experience for? Am I fulfilling my purpose of being in this physical realm? Neptune retrograde gives us a little kick in between the eyes so that we may once remember and recall why we chose to become souls in the flesh. Too often we get caught up in the Neptune experience of trying to escape our realities. However, the Neptune retrograde transit will give us an opportunity to honor our realities.
Re-Defining the Dream
There’s the saying that life is but a dream, and with Neptune retrograde, we will get an opportunity to take off the rose-colored glasses of deception and illusion and finally get clarity about our dreams and use our creativity to make them a reality. Sometimes when you are caught up in the fog of it all, it can be very difficult to ground your creative ideas and make them into something solid. Under the Neptune retrograde, we have the awareness to finally put our creative energy into the here and now.
Ultimately, Neptune retrograde is actually not too bad after all. This is particularly true for people who have difficulty navigating Neptune energy. The Neptune retrograde energy gives us the opportunity to finally face ourselves and our situations. There is also the chance to take off those rose-colored glasses that are keeping us from seeing our realities for what they are. In order to create our dreams in the physical, it is important to be honest about our current conditions. Neptune retrograde offers us a reality check so that we can get to making our dreams a reality.
