The moon will be making a conjunction with Neptune at 20 degrees Pisces on June 12th. (And in general over the next few days - between June 10th and 13th - there is quite a bit of astrological business involving planets in Pisces and the sun and moon, which is just setting us up for what is to come.)
The moon, in every monthly lunar cycle, makes one lap around the zodiac. As it does this, it makes various aspects (communications), which each of the other celestial bodies. The moon, ruling our intuition, subconscious, instincts, emotions, moods, and feelings, acts as an instrument that broadcasts these energetic messages to us in our day to day lives. That's what following lunar transits is all about - it helps us understand the energies at play each day and when certain actions are supported as opposed to others, so we can be in better alignment with the energetic currents.
As the moon passes by a planet in a sign each month, especially the planets that lie farther out and have longer sign transits, we will get an energetic update on what that planet is up to from the moon. When we pay attention consistently to these shifts, we start to pick up on patterns and themes of certain alignments.
When the moon meets up with Neptune on June 12th in Pisces, this will be our last information update before Neptune stations retrograde on June 23rd just after the solstice new moon eclipse. So, now is a perfect time for giving a little thought to what Neptune retrograde in its own sign might be about.
As within, without, as above, so below.
Neptune rules Pisces, and therefore rules over the hidden realms, the spiritual world, and the subconscious/unconscious. This is the realm of angels as well as monsters, of imagination as well as deception.
If we have been engaging in denial, delusion, escapism, or avoiding seeing reality in some way in our lives, Neptune retrograde has the potential to be the time when we are forced to face the truth of the matter. This is because when Neptune is in forward motion, we can easily access its abilities to avoid and evade, creating a different reality for ourselves in our imagination, and seeing life through rose-colored glasses.
When Neptune is in retrograde motion, however, we cannot access these abilities so easily, and then have to face harsh realities without our illusion-overlay.
Neptune rules over our denial, escapism, fantasy, and illusions, but also is our connection to source inspiration and magic by which we create and bring our dreams into being in this world.
Neptune is also the mechanism by which we bring our nightmares into being in this world.
Neptune retrograde will show us any realities we have been hiding from or denying. It sounds harsh, but this is actually a gift.
With Neptune we can choose the rose-colored glasses and denial/escapism, or we can choose to actually manifest our desired reality instead. But we cannot manifest our dreams as reality while in denial. If we have been living a lie, we get the opportunity to see this during Neptune’s upcoming retrograde, and do the work necessary on the inside in order to manifest the reality we desire on the outside - not just an illusion.
Everything is a reflection. As above, so below, as within, without.
