Moon Neptune Conjunction

Note: The astrological observations in this post apply for everyone. In this post, I'm discussing the current transiting planets--one moving planet in relation to the other. So the planets and signs will be the same for you too.

As above, so below....

This image, The Thinker, is sort of how I've felt tonight. I was working on helping to solve a problem for a family member today-- mental wheels were churning, and all that jazz. Once those wheels get churning for too long, it's harder to engage the brakes; but I managed.

That image is how a person looks after watching too much CNN.
Note to Self: No more CNN this week! You have officially overdosed!

Consulting my astrology software, I see that the Transiting Aquarius Moon has just crossed over Transiting Neptune here at 11:30 PM Eastern time Monday night.

It's probably no wonder I feel (Moon) a bit scattered (Neptune).
And in true Aquarian style (Moon & Neptune conjunction in Aquarius), I refused to do any work this evening. No studying and no nothing--just vegged on the sofa and watched TV feeling rebellious toward life! That's Aquarius--it wants to rebel, do things differently, be unusual and that kind of thing.

I was actually completely aware that I was rebelling against my normal routine tonight--rarely do I just veg out that way.
Get up Joy and clean the house or study astrology--do SOMETHING for heaven's sake! No!

Then again, those Neptune in Aquarius energies can manifest in many different ways--that's just how they affected me tonight. There's the whole chart to consider in order to be thorough--but I'm rebelling against that. I'm just looking at the Moon and the aspects.

Between now and 4 am the Transiting Aquarius Moon will cross over my descendant--a good time to be sleeping! Anytime a planet crosses over a sensitive point in the chart, its significant they say. The Moon is below the horizon, decreasing in light. Hey! that's sort of how I f-e-e-l right now... below the horizon and decreasing in light. Ha!

Yeah, I'm aware that this isn't an interesting post; but my Aquarian Moon doesn't care! (Sorry dear reader, but that's Aquarius for ya'.)

I'm thinking that I should correlate the Moon's phase with the sign. Okay, so I will. The Moon's current phase--waning crescent phase. Crescent is about going inward--that fits.

Continuing, the Moon will be completely dark in a few days... the dark side of the moon!

Maybe its generally a low energy time; certainly a "going inward" time when the moon is dark. Well, that's part of the purpose of this personal public journal--and that statement right there is pretty contrary itself: personal public. Ha! It's contradictory if nothing else! And my Aquarian Moody Moon really doesn't care!
Anyway, part of my purpose is to document for myself (for the purpose of self learning) how the Moon energy plays out in the different signs. So there's my justification for this crazy, uninteresting post!

So, take the waning crescent Moon and toss in the conjunction with Neptune in Aquarius, and to me that reads, "Tired, blurred, and confused with a tinge of contrariness" or something like that.

It works for me--that's about how I'm feeling. ha ha
A couple of posts ago I warned about this!
The Transiting Moon crossed over Mars during the night last night, around 2 am, and remained conjunct to Mars most of the day.

That Mars energy probably helped me remain active with the family member's problem solving. Mars is a bit passionate and sometimes aggressive too--and I have to admit that I felt that today along with the determination that is associated with Mars as well!

All these planets below are in Aquarius!
I told you this was coming... several posts ago, I told ya'! And at dinner time today, the Moon pulled away from Mars and snuggled up to Chiron--the wounded healer. I can relate to feeling (Moon) that Chiron energy around dinner time--the issue with my family member triggering my old wounds. It wasn't anything too dramatic--but I could feel it. Right around that same time it was also making that conjunction with Neptune--gosh, no wonder I was feeling a little bit rough right about then.

So, I'm getting the correlation here.

Around 8 am tomorrow the Moon moves into Pisces while it's still making the conjunction with Neptune. Tomorrow should be a dreamy day! Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune? What else could it be? Probably it'll be a great day to do readings--no boundaries!
Let the Spirit Games Begin!

But I digress. Moving back in time, around 9 pm tonight an exact Aquarian conjunction with Moon and Neptune occurred--that's about the time I was refusing to budge from the sofa!

By about 9 pm Eastern time tomorrow night (Wednesday 25th), the Moon will have pulled completely away from Neptune and be in an exact conjunction with the Sun--both in Pisces.
Moon and Sun conjunct in Pisces?
Sounds like more dreamy energy! Well, we'll see... I'm sure I will post more about it tomorrow as we move this Moon from Aquarius into Pisces and it hits the Sun. (Should be interesting--two luminaries in Pisces!)

So much for my Moon observations and correlations for one night... hope this made some sense on some level. But then again, with all that contrary Aquairan energy being activated, if I'm completely honest, there's a good part of me doesn't care if it makes sense or not!

And the beat goes on... tomorrow's another day, as they say. Meanwhile, the Neptune Moon conjunction should help me with my meditation tonight...
and I'm heading in that direction right now...
Om Mani Padme Hung! Om Mani Padme Hung!
Om Mani Padme Hung!
Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha! Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha!
Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha!


And the OSCAR goes to... YOU!

I really had a "moment" catching the last of the Oscar's tonight after giving the psychic class. And I wanted to post this thought while its still fresh on my mind. I hope I can make a decent point here.

I'm pretty tired--giving those classes really take it out of me. The whole time my energy is buzzing briskly--talk about being on stage! Ha! Well, anyway, I'll try my best to convey a decent thought or two here if you'll stick with me. Here we go.

I think they were talking about the movie, "Doubt". No, the movie itself is not what I want to post about. It was what the man who was introducing the actor said when describing his performance. He said something interesting.

It went something like this. (I wish I had the direct quote.) Phillip Seymour Hoffman was being recognized for keeping us (the movie watcher) at the edge of our seats while resolving whatever dilemma the movie presents. There's always a deliemma--the movie would be no "fun" without one! ha!

Like most movies, not knowing how it will turn out--we movie goers rate those flicks the best kind and actors get credit for portraying life-like inner and outer anguishing struggles.

I was reminded how much we love movies that present difficult life dilemmas. But aren't our very own lives just as uncertain and filled with doubt--not to mention, excitement-- at times?

I have to say that this isn't the first time I've contemplated this very thing; yet, I thought it might make a good blog post.

Here's the thing. Most people never see their own personal lives as being filled with as much (or more!) of the same type of edge-of-your-seat drama that we love in movies. And rarely do they participate in their own life with as much enthusiasm or excitement. Why is that?

Instead, we try to escape from our lives--we escape by going to a movie. haha

And we escape in many other ways too--but that's a whole other topic.

But, OK, and I do it too; I love movies! I also recognize that movies represent a reprieve from my own life albeit temporarily. There's nothing wrong with that inherently.

The deeper thought that I'm blogging about here is this:
What if we could learn see the uncertainty of our own lives with as much appreciation as we do the movies?

We could, you know? Why do we love uncertainty in movies, yet detest it in our own lives?

Well, maybe you don't dear reader--maybe you have made peace with life's uncertainty.

Or better yet, maybe you participate in your life with just as much enthusiasm as any adventure in any movie that's out there! And if you do, I'll bet that you enjoy life a lot more than the average person.

Generally, I'd say most people try to create something better in life, just like our beloved movie characters are doing. They struggle with their decisions and don't really know for sure how it will really end up. And would it be as much -- dare I used the word "fun" -- if they did? Life, after all, is full of surprises! Any honest psychic should be able to agree with that one! ha ha

Besides, sometimes we get MORE than we hope for; pleasant results! Sometimes, however, we suffer disappointment; but learn something in the end. (There's nothing like a movie [or your own real life drama] that ends with a great lesson learned!) And sometimes we can't make up our minds what we're doing, because either we don't know what we really want or because we're fighting inner battles that hold us back. Oh, its all just like the movies! But most of us don't enjoy the drama of real life the way we enjoy drama in the movies.

My only thought, and I will repeat it again is: What if we could appreciate the uncertainty of our own lives the way we do when we watch a movie?

How will it turn out? Will the main character (you) achieve your goals? How will you overcome obstacles? Win your battles? Will you change your goals? Hold on to your dream? Win? Loose? or Survive?

I love Richard Bach's books. His book, Illusions, was one of the first books I read when re-awakening. That is, unless you count Johnathan Livingston Seagull. If you decide (maybe after reading this) to check out his book, be sure to check out his other one entitled One. I can't remember in which book it was, but the Master takes the student into a movie theatre and points out that our own life is a movie.... you are writing, directing and staring in it!

And so, the OSCAR goes to .... YOU!!
