hello ~ what do you mean by "the planets are the things we have to overcome in order to master these areas of life" ? thanks for your work!

planets in the houses

  • sun: shows the center of our life, something that is so important to us that our own ego or lack of confidence is in the way
  • moon: where our heart is, where we feel needy and look for comfort, but are too sensitive to find a sense of ease
  • mercury: an area that we are very curious about but one that we tend to rationalize too much and overthink
  • venus: where we struggle because we are overly fixated on pleasing others and not offending anyone
  • mars: where we want to prove our potency but our own sense of competitiveness and blind aggression is in the way
  • jupiter: an area where we are confident and optimistic and dont see our shortcomings and the ways in which we lack
  • saturn: we want to show our competence but are numbed by insecurity and anxiety
  • uranus: where we need to be free. rebelling for the sake of rebelling keeps us from doing what we actually want
  • neptune: a deep need for connection that is hindered by a naive or deluded view of of this area
  • pluto: where we feel powerless and want to feel power. we hang on to something but need to learn to let go

so, basically, if you have a lot of planets in one house, there’s also a lot of challenges in that house

“This 7-foot bronze statue of the Roman God of the Sea was installed June 13, 2015 at the northern end of the boardwalk near Washington and Jefferson Avenues in Cape Charles, VA. Sculpted by artist Paul DiPasquale, it is the model, or maquette, for the iconic 34-foot King Neptune statue located on Virginia Beach’s boardwalk. Cape Charles, located close to the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, was founded in 1884 as a planned community by railroad and ferry interests. The small town of about 1,200 people was, for many years, the terminal for the Little Creek-Cape Charles Ferry, providing passenger and car ferry service across the bay to Norfolk and Hampton. The last ferry left Cape Charles in 1963“

Neptune In The Houses

The First House:

People with Neptune in the 1st house, tend to be an artistic, idealistic, procrastinating, psychic, dreamer and is often overly sensitive to their environment. The day-to-day pressures of the world can drive these people away and into their own little world.

The Second House:

People with Neptune in the 2nd house, have a strong imagination and psychic sensitivity which can be used to tap their inner talents. They have an appreciation of beautiful objects. This placement can make them extremely generous or extremely dishonest.

The Third House:

If a person have Neptune in the 3rd house, they are idealistic and artistic. Their ability to visualize and imagine is probably quite pronounced. Flashes of inspiration can come to them quite suddenly and may have a tendency to be unreliable or negative.  

The Fourth House:

People with Neptune in the 4th house, may experience a sense of inner uncertainty, insecurity and confusion. Unexplainable fears and anxieties may cause them to withdraw from living. Remember, with Neptune, things are not as they appear and they need to face reality in their home environment.  

The Fifth House:

A person with Neptune in the 5th house, is artistic and creative. They have a flare for the dramatic and perhaps love being on stage. They get anxious and insecure easily due to their idealistic way of thinking. Idealism is fine, but they tend to lose consciousness or let their imagination run away with them.

The Sixth House:

People with Neptune in the 6th house, are affectionate people. Strange things can happen at  their workplace or to their health. They seek to serve and to perhaps nurse and take care of others. At work, they may encounter people who are “two-faced”, causing them pain and suffering.

The Seventh House:

Ah the 7th house, what a place to have Neptune. People who have Neptune in the 7th house, may have a tendency to idealize their whole world. Communication may be a problem due to their concepts and ideals. There will be a day when their blinders are removed and they’ll see their true nature.

The Eighth House:

People who have Neptune in the 8th house, are psychic and intuitive, with dreams and visions that are precognitive. They may have extreme sensitivity to the feelings of others. If they’re dishonest, they will suffer financial reverses in order to prove the futility of seeking happiness through material possessions.

The Ninth House:

People who happens to have Neptune in the 9th house, tend to be optimistic and more insensitive than people might think, even thought that is hard for Neptune. Dreams can be very vivid and possibly prophetic. Good judgment in these areas can be clouded and confused.   

The Tenth House:

To a person with Neptune in the 10th house, their career may involve something artistic, inspirational, humanitarian, dramatic, promotional or psychic. A person with Neptune in the tenth house will constantly make talk in their circle.

The Eleventh House:

If a person have Neptune in the 11th house, they are idealistic and interested in the common good. Strong hunches regarding their hopes and wishes are present. They should be careful with some friends as they may not be what they seem.

The Twelfth House:

The true home of Neptune. If you have Neptune in the 12th House, you are reflective and intuitive. You have psychic ability which operates unconsciously. You may experience intense feelings of loneliness and of being held in bondage to a specific person.

Malefic Planets

Pluto destroys until there is nothing left, until you have to rebuild everything from the broken foundations upwards, moving you on completely in your journey in this life. It is ego shattering.

Neptune dissolves, taunts and taints, pointing you in misleading directions until you don’t know left from right. It breaks down the barriers between you and everything else, idealises. 

Uranus disrupts at the drop of a hat, liberates you from confines, but also rebels for the sake of rebelling, leaving you to wonder what will be left is its chaotic wake. 

Saturn creates dissatisfaction, feelings of being unworthy or let down in an area of life, where things progress slowly and often with much hard work and difficulty. Through this, we end up being teachers in this area of life, our talents reaching heights of wisdom with time, we master it.

Mars (Often considered a lesser malefic) represents brute force, recklessness, a pioneering spirit that often runs into conflict in the area containing it. Competitiveness and the ability to self-direct also come from Mars, a healthier aggression. 

June 20, 2016 Mercury, Saturn, Neptune T-Square

A T-square is an acute aspect interplay between three signs sharing the same modality. On June 20, 2016, Mercury in Gemini will make an almost exact opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces, creating a mutable T-square. T-square events traditionally suggest progression in some form, lead by the apex planet, in this case being Neptune in Pisces, who under the pressure of two squares is forced to perform. There are no release valves with a T-square, oppositions and squares both signify challenging aspects where conflict must be reconciled with motion, it is mandatory that we move. With Neptune contacting Saturn, ideals and vision is sculpted by realism and form. The legitimacy of Neptune’s fantasy and delirium is called into question. Saturn accepts only what is sound and tangible. This can create a conflict between speculation and reality, often the borders between material and immaterial are cloudy and ill defined. Saturn calcifies Neptune’s flight of fancy, it can turn the third eye blind without deep reflection. Historically, aspect patterns between Saturn and Neptune have signified the swelling and the destruction of communism. Neptune is concerned with collective matters, while Saturn governs autocracy, political order, and government, so the cohesion of these two planets has corresponded with political movement and change. Imagination and idealism is forced through a logical texture.

Currently, Australia and the US are running election campaigns. It will be interesting to observe how long politicians can continue to make grandiose Neptune promises before Saturn demands order. The collective’s view of reality is impressionable, and willing for equality and compassion at any price. Saturn is a disciplinary. Lost individuals dwelling on the outskirts of society, wrapped in Neptune vices like addiction or psychosis, or minority groups may be reprimanded, threatened, and even further exiled. With Mercury in Gemini, these individuals may be given a voice, possibly through the political stage. Journalism is a profession traditionally ruled by Mercury and Gemini, so articles and media at this point in time may focus on collective issues of concern and holding either politicians to account regarding these matters, or the individual enforcing the self sufficiency of Saturn. Both Mercury and Neptune are symbolized by the trickster archetype, so the mind can be easily misguided when these planets contact. While the gift of intellectual fantasy and creative reverie is rich, storytelling becomes non fiction. The danger here is projecting dream into reality and forming only lies and deceit. It creates a climate where the powers to be, those represented by Saturn oligarchy are in a position to easily fool the collective. This is when the sugar of consciousness, I love that term by Alan Oken, a product of Mercury, creates the awareness of this happening. Being level headed is the most important, though the seemingly impossible guard.

On this day the Sun will enter Cancer and make an opposition to Moon in Sagittarius. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and exalts in Cancer, so the wealth of the inner world created by Mercury-Neptune expands and facilitates a period of philosophical introspection and dreamy introspection in a lunar transience. In the days coming, Jupiter in Virgo will make a square to Mercury and form a mutable grand cross in the week following. In mutable spirit, this generates a need for change, new experience, and unusual uncertainty. With the fullness of a Cancer moon, emotions may be easily inflamed, and force even more conflict and confusion. Neptune as the apex may be the redeemer. Neptune is a soother and a symbol of retribution. The radiance of the spiritual sun brings an elevating dimension to this whole phenomena. Saturn is a master key, formidable and wise, the doorway of Neptune can be opened with clear eyes, and the mind of Mercury is here to observe it all.


Neptune - Through the Loony Looking Glass

if you drink much from a bottle marked poison… its bound to disagree with you sooner or later                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

We are all strong until we hear the Neptune song. Idealisation and dream is always more powerful than reality. The seduction of symphony and dance and art can be impossible to resist, especially for people with emphasised Neptune, Pisces, and the 12th house in the birth chart. Tumbling down the void with Alice, Neptune is ascension and destruction. There is a loss of identity as we confront unusual experiences, colours rising from the unconscious, the collective family, waves of delirium and intoxication. And when we try to explain the experience we are lost for words or labeled as nonsense, it can only really be transmuted in art or poetry or sex. Neptune is gazing through the looking glass of a thousand dreams glossed in godly vision, creative genius, and enticing chaos. It is stillness that is only momentary, but worth sacrificing everything for, and to some, the lure is too captivating, and so there is addiction, or lethargy, or poisonous relationships. In mythology, Neptune was assigned to the ocean. Neptune’s gender is evasive, it symbolizes a oneness, the muse playing orchestras from the clouds. Neptune is the higher octave of feminine Venus, but Neptune is the brother of Jupiter and Pluto, and descended from Poseidon and his son, Triden. Mercury symbolizes androgyny and indeterminate gender, but Neptune ascends beyond this recognition to a place where experience is indefinable omnipresence. But the pathway to Neptune sovereignty is confusing and psychotic at best. On crystal heels the hall is frozen, cracking, and promising redemption but threatening madness. We so badly want to believe the deception. Although Neptune emerges to remind us that truth and lie are wrapped in each other, that life does not exist without death, and that you cannot be saved without falling
