Neptune in the 3rd house - Ocean Minded

Closed in a room, my imagination becomes the universe, and the rest of the world is missing out. - Criss Jami

The mind is like watercolour artwork with Neptune in the 3rd. Thoughts turn to liquid and infuse into one another, crossing boundaries between many worlds. The imagination is spectacular. And the dreaming so entrancing that she may live through an envisioned and idealistic world. Neptune promises salvation. But she can be kind of mysterious, and shadowy too. Maybe the individual is so lost in creative reverie that she neglects everyday tasks and withdraws. Or she could struggle to feel content in reality because within she perceives such a magnificent, inarticulate world. She can seem a million miles away, lost in cloud of daze and thought. The individual may be very receptive to unspoken thoughts and speak with a cryptic and colourful tone. Flashes of insight may also be somewhat prophetic.

Through the spellbinding Neptune imagination, the individual can express knowledge like poetry. She can be a great story teller, and remember even seemingly mundane events. It’s like she blows a Neptune bubble of hypnotism that pops every time she speaks. But this bubble can also be obscure, and cloud efforts at communication. She can feel disconnected from people because it can be so challenging to truly share what she finds meaningful. It can be hard to form words from thoughts, and thoughts can vanish, run into one another, and play out imaginary events in vivid detail. Neptune’s trickery may cause events to be remembered obscurely and tales can be embellished. The 3rd house is our perception of the world. And everything is not what it seems here. To experience in the mind may seem like the real physical encounter. Everything can become too confusing. Dreams can become mistaken for reality. The imagination can be so vivid that the individual can ‘see’ things that others can’t.

The individual with Neptune in the 3rd can have lapses in concentration and struggle with more calculative topics. The 3rd house is the epicentre of communication. Maybe the individual had trouble with schooling because her mind frequently drifted off into reverie. When encouraged, the person can offer an alternative and holistic point of view, one that is unique and wise. In this way she can be an asset in the classroom, one that the curriculum does not recognise but teachers see a brilliant light in. It’s common for Neptune in the 3rd to find inspiration or peace near the ocean. The individual may also feel somewhat mentally lethargic, as if she is always tired, or always unready to learn or write. Maybe she is intellectually lazy at times. She may wait for the spark of inspiration and let the lure of procrastination win. When she can direct Neptune through her pan flute, she can translate striking imaginative ideals into words and prose. She can share a world of treasure to marvel. She can make people feel like they are in Disneyland.


The third eye is a mystical concept referring to an invisible eye that provides perception beyond ordinary sight. It is located between, & just above, the eyebrows, & acts like a gate that leads to inner realms & higher consciousness. Its vibrational frequency is related to insight & intuition. Its associated color is indigo, & its element is light.

Uranus and trauma

The revelations of Uranus strike like lightning. It’s unexpected, abrupt, and earth shattering. While Pluto can indicate a slow burn of exhuming transformation, Uranus reverberates sudden changes that consciousness may not be prepared for. Uranus is the third eye of the storm, crackling like thunderbolts and swirling cyclones, leaving a trail of emotional wreckage and psychological puzzles. The area of life that Uranus contacts is kind of like a glass snowglobe. It gets picked up, turned upside down, and shaken uncontrollably. Because Uranus is an outer planet, like Neptune and Pluto, it works on very subliminal and unconscious levels. They suggest the sort of soul and deepest layers of the psyche expressed by the collective. But they also emerge on personal levels that seem guided by some sort of fate. The discovery of Uranus changed the way astrology is perceived until this very day. Suddenly the closed system of seven planets was ripped to pieces. The fear of the unknown was traumatic. The universe was bigger than we once perceived, mysteries called from the invisible, the possibilities were endless. Steven Forrest regards Uranus as the most ‘unpredictable’ of the planets. It does not spin in its orbit. It rolls. Even in space, the planet of individuality dances to its own tune. There can be a disturbance with Uranus, instantaneous and intense events, that end in a moment, but the psychological reaction can live on. Uranus incites rapid change to restructure for the better. Uranus is Utopian and visionary, it represents the intellectual component of intuition, as the higher octave of Mercury, we can receive the radio signal of Uranus through otherworldly ideas. The sort of traditional trauma associated with Uranus includes major cerebral events like stroke or psychiatric ailment. It’s outer planet position also suggests much less debilitating experience. It could be the wave of enlightenment that one needs to finally leave a job. Maybe it’s the burst of revelation that promotes a long term spiritual awakening. Watching the transits Uranus is making across the natal chart can be significantly insightful. Maybe those bolts from the blue won’t be so unexpected.

Uranus in the first house: Trauma involving constant psychological restructuring and perceptions of the self and the world. Shifts in mental formations can change the way the individual understands the world and relates to his inner self. Maybe the person goes through periods of ‘losing themselves’ and becoming vacant and then renewed

Uranus in the second house: The individual may experience sudden loss so that there can be a revaluation of what is meaningful, valuable, and truly resourceful. This loss could come through materials and also losses of inner wealth like what was once enjoyable is no longer, how the individual once related to themselves seems misplaced

Uranus in the third house: The immediate perception is subject to abrupt alteration, like the world can be seen with new eyes, but this can generate withdrawal, the mind and the brain become one and not separate, obsessive behavior can arise and atypical behavior. The world changes so quickly that mentally the individual craves but feels will never attain stability

Uranus in the fourth house: Pronounced and sudden loss of security existentially and internally. The inner world fluctuates and adopts changing needs, the inner child never settles, surrounding structures and those built within can become trampled on causing immense trauma

Uranus in the fifth house: The creative experience and the will for life and joy fluctuates. There are barren periods where the individual perceives abandonment, loss of approval and general malaise. The feelings of the individual’s meaning and place in the world leave him hanging off a ledge

Uranus in the sixth house: Matters surrounding health and the way the individual relates to his physical body are emphasised. There can be a loss through health concerns or perceived or actualized. Acknowledging the subtle needs of others whilst retaining individuality promotes dissociations. Psychological ailment can result of feeling alien from his surrounding environment

Uranus in the seventh house: Revelations pertaining the self spoken from the mouth of others can promote internal storms. The shadow self bellowing into consciousness can be traumatic as it rearranges psychological structures and perceptions. It may be through other people that awakenings occur. Self projection can also generate trauma as Uranus’s need to express individuality is shattered amongst reflections. He can feel lonely from himself

Uranus in the eighth house: Transformations pertaining to the deepest layers of the psyche and most primal perceptions occur rapidly, overnight the individual is forced to change the way he identifies with the world, himself, his beliefs, and spirit. Betrayals from others, often touching ultra deep levels, through love, or sexual gratification or whatever, alternates the way he relates to others and reveals parts of himself

Uranus in the ninth house: Sudden restructuring of held beliefs and worldly perceptions, the messages of the higher mind passing through, the way the individual understands the universe. The individual identifies with certain paths of faith or connections with ‘God’ that fluctuate through trauma or experiences that reshape the inner vision that weaves with the outer. There can be a loss of meaning

Uranus in the tenth house: There can be abrupt loss of will and purpose, a distance between themselves and vision. The individual could face traumas that relate to the way the public perceives him, and often detachment with the father, and thus he must learn to walk it alone.

Uranus in the eleventh house: Abrupt and profound revelations regarding the self and loyalty to individuality and the ‘true self’ spin life into a flux. There can be a neuroses and isolation until the individual is reflecting the core that constantly changes. His relationship to society fluctuates, there can be a sense of abandonment

Uranus in the twelfth house: The way the individual relates to the world at large generates trauma through his need for withdrawal and dissolving of the self. The self can shatter into pieces as it becomes split by the howls of the collective and the longing to break free and return to the source or space or some sort of home. Trauma can come through a lack of security and comfort, as if earth is hostile


chapter 2: correspondences.

Although correspondences can be more of a Wiccan tradition (though I’ve seen correspondences in other witchcraft traditions), I personally feel they are important as each correspondence holds a specific energy having to do with what you’re using it for. Several correspondences in witchcraft are: moon phases, colors, crystals, and herbs.

☽ Moon Phases ☾

There are nine phases of the moon: new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, waning crescent, and dark moon.

The new moon is the period after the dark moon, which will eventually grow into the waxing moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: new beginnings, growth, renewal, beauty, love, jobs, networking and creativity.
The waxing crescent moon is the period after the new moon, which will eventually grow into the first quarter moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: animals, business, change, choice, freedom, initiations, individualization, new ideas, challenge to status quo, rebellions, and warrior aspect.

The first quarter moon is the period after the waxing crescent moon, which will eventually grow into the waxing gibbous moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: balance, beginnings, health, healing, courage, elemental magick, friends, love, luck, wealth, fertility, and psychic powers.

The waxing gibbous moon is the period after the first quarter moon, which will eventually grow into the full moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: increase, analysis, evaluation, courage, patience, peace, harmony, fruition, and completion.

The full moon is the period after the waxing moon, which will eventually diminish into the waning moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: fruition, protection, divination, love, children, decisions, dreams, legal matters, ovulation, fertilization, pregnancy, lust, and life.

The waning gibbous moon is the period after the full moon, which will eventually diminish into the last quarter moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: to remove bad habits or addictions, divorce, protection, banishing, knowledge and teaching.

The last quarter moon is the period after the waning gibbous moon, which will eventually diminish into the waning crescent moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: banishing, removing illnesses, destruction, releasing, wisdom, and the underworld.

The waning crescent moon is the period after the last quarter moon, which will eventually diminish into the dark moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: releasing addictions and obsessions, change, justice, quarrels, death, reincarnation, and destiny.

The dark moon is the period after the waning crescent moon, which will eventually grow into the new moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: rest, meditation, dreams, divination, sleep, visions, and magick.

anonymous asked:

The doctor will never be a woman. There are plenty of women in the show that are admirable role models. I think you're just full ofsh it. Stop pushing your american views onto Doctor Who, a BRITISH show, with BRITISH values. It's unbelievable how obnoxious and hypocritical feminists are, especially you third-wave feminists. Always spouting "equal rights" but, "Can't hit me, cause I'm a girl!" You probably won't respond to this because you know I'm right and the whovianfeminism stance is weak.

This was so beautiful that I had to put it up on my wall and examine it as if it were an exquisite piece of art. 

“Manpain” by Anonymous

Above we have a quintessential example of early 21st Century prose by an aggrieved man. The author of this piece is unknown, but we can surmise by his inability to properly say “shit” to a woman and his assurance that he likes “admirable” female characters that he is most likely a “Nice Guy.”

The anonymous author employs deliberate obtuseness in order to provoke a reaction from his audience. Notice how he pretends no British individual supports the idea of a woman portraying the Doctor, despite clear evidence to the contrary, even amongst actors who have portrayed the titular character on the show. Then there is the stunning self-centeredness regarding his perception of third wave feminism; he is only interested in equality if it grants him the “right” to hit the women whose arguments make him so incoherently angry that he is unable to rationally reply.

His final challenge attempts to trap the reader. Do we respond and grant him the audience and validation he so desperately seeks, or do we ignore him and let him believe he has won? But perhaps we have a third option: to turn the focus back on him and examine how his comments display his deep insecurity in his own sense of masculinity, something he feels can only be reclaimed by challenging a girl on the internet to a fight and preemptively declaring victory because he fears he cannot engage with her on an intellectual level.

I’ve come a long way ; From being emotionally torn to shreds, harming myself to appreciating the universe . It’s a journey I don’t wish upon anyone. Yet I believe it’s vital for everyone to experience. A Rollercoaster through hell. Transcending to the heavens and finally reaching Earth with a sense of contentment. If you understand this , then you understand the world and its secret. You are aware . Your sixth sense activated . Third Eye perception . Awakening of the soul . Call it what ever you like . Its a clear message . Messages that are meant for you and only you.Tell me , do you hear the universe speak to you too ?

Mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci discovered the universal pattern of life; by adding the sum of two previous numbers beginning with zero to infinity (0,1,1,2,3…). The Fibonacci sequence, the growth of all things is found in nature in the simplest and most lovely things that can be offered to our universe.

Happy Fibonacci Friday and never stop searching for the infinite patterns of life.
