There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways…
There can be spotlights and smokescreens with Neptune in the 10th. The individual has a great vision when it comes to dreams and profession. However the wander through Neptune’s sedate haze can erupt in confusion and disillusion. There can be a struggle with pinpointing a life direction and the overbearing tug into many different career pathways. It’s like they feel as if they could always be doing better, or always be doing more. The individual has a hypnotic sway over strangers and an elusive, otherworldly public perception. People can mistake them for being something they are not. Mostly the individual will be regarded as someone who is empathic, extrasolar, and confusing. They have a high receptivity for the needs of the public. They feel like they have an extraordinary purpose in the world. But how do they figure out what it is?
Neptune in the 10th visualise an ideal when it comes to the profession. Ambition and focus may come and go in waves, and they can mysteriously self destruct along the way. Neptune is the redeemer - it is sweet, seductive, musical, and also shadowy, holographic, and deceptive. The individual may feel that attaining that idealised career goal will promise lifelong happiness and salvation. We could assume the person is lured into Neptune related roles - cinema, creativity, arts, nursing, healing, service, and welfare. They may feel that their public perception is at conflict with their true persona, and they can be less unusual and puzzling than it seems. The individual will make a lot of sacrifices when it comes to achieving professional results, but be unrealistic about time frames and study. Maybe they are unpractical at work, or overly lethargic and uninspired. Neptune in the 10th will need a profession that can be turned into artwork, like something magical. It must spindle emotions and appeal to their heavy conscience.
The tenth house in astrology represents the dominant parent. With Neptune here, the parent may have been a tremendous creative visionary, or somebody who suffered addiction and mental illness. Maybe both. The individual may feel that redemption lies in the pride of parents. Neptune in the 10th wants to be a great healer, and may feel like their purpose on earth is to be an antidote for a sick humanity. The themes around their upbringing, where the individual could have been exposed to substances and psychological ailment send them into roles where they can attempt to heal those they couldn’t in childhood. They feel saturated in contentment when he receives public praise, and they are typically very emotionally receptive to collective needs. With artistic brush stroked ideals, the individual may feel that money and current political systems are barricading away their dreams. Neptune in the 10th wants to paint, dwell, and do something sweeping. But they can’t figure out what, or how, or if they are ‘truly ready’. This is the rainbow mural on the tenth house billboard, hidden beneath the sea with mermaid fins. The twinkle in their eyes reflect the snapping photograph lights from their cosmic audience.
Is there anything happening astrologically that helps to explain Hollywood being exposed?
oh totally. Transiting Jupiter in Scorpio trine transiting Neptune in Pisces… i believe Neptune corresponds to glamorization and illusion, the hollywood lifestyle is definitely one that’s glamorized, the modern phenomenon of celebrity falls under Neptune, and I think cinema has decades of correspondences with Neptune and it’s ruling sign of Pisces.
Jupiter in Scorpio is really the bigger player here though, at least i think it is; Scorpio concerns itself with the ugly truth, the taboo, and the secret underworld. Libra (the sign before Scorpio) avoids rocking the boat and Scorpio does nothing but rock the boat. Jupiter corresponds to inflation, expansion, and belief. Wherever Jupiter is, our attention is inevitably drawn. discussion springs up around this planet to the point where some even call it the planet of debate, where we feel opinionated and where we feel correct (morally, politically, philosophically, religiously… all very contentious topics for some people, i’m sure)
so Jupiter in Scorpio lines up when it comes to discussions of abuse of any kinds, and sexual abuse no less. add to the fact that these societal ills have been brewing periodically for decades (if not literal centuries lol) it’s no wonder all these creeps are being exposed. this isn’t the first time, either; brave souls have been working tirelessly to expose sexual abusers in many industries, not just hollywood. woody allen, kevin spacey, casey affleck… casey affleck JUST won an oscar or something like last year so if you ask me more needs to be done. kevin spacey has been an open secret for years, quite literally everyone knew about him preying on young boys, so for the heads in the industry to act surprised when everyone knew and just worked with him for a paycheck anyways, that’s disgraceful. the fact that we only heard of harvey weinstein NOW, in 2017, even though many many actresses have come forwards before, can be traced to jupiter in scorpio. (doesnt hurt that the most recent examples of women who have come forwards are white and famous. in fact, harvey weinstein has his mouth shut in light of all these accusations but he fixed his lips to fight only ONE of his accusers, mexican-born kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o. wonder why…)
actually speaking of race, terry crews recently open up about one of his experiences as a black man in hollywood, being sexually harassed at a party in front of his wife; it is noteworthy because white women are by no means the only victims of sexual harassment. it’s really important we remember that as we talk about systems such as misogyny and racism and homophobia in the world today.
as for the other two i mentioned (woody allen and casey affleck) they both need to be banished from this industry imo. the film industry is i think one of the most despicable ones even though these issues are by no means unique to it.
sorry this was so long. but yeah that’s my hot take
Marilyn Monroe, known for her sensuality, breathy voice and beauty has her midheaven of what you’re known for in naturally beautiful, material, sensual Taurus. Her Venus was in Aries and conjunct her midheaven, associating her beauty with her body and sexual drive. Neptune conjunct her Leo ascendant gave her a seemingly lost and confused look which could be perceived as unintelligence, the ability to embody a fantasy, merge seamlessly with the people around her and enact a different persona for the cameras as Neptune rules cinema while keeping the regal, commanding and bombastic presence of Leo ascendants.
Pisceans love artistic pursuits and anything that has an element of mystery, fantasy, and imagination. Dangerous sports, such as skydiving or car racing, can also appeal to Pisceans because they have an unerring instinct in such situations. The Piscean love of spirituality is enhanced by nature- related activities such as gardening and taking long walks.
The typical Piscean enjoys the following pastimes:
theater and films
stories about witches, monsters, and creatures
gentle foot massages
scented bubble baths
candles and incense
people who need their help
sleeping and dreaming
reading and writing poetry
yoga and meditation
mystical gifts and psychics
soft background music
harsh, bright lighting
being sleep deprived
people knowing too much about them
stiff or tight clothing
noisy, crowded places
being told to get a grip on things
