Sun trine Neptune (End Oct)

Since the sun moves around the entire zodiac in one year, it makes all the alignments with all the planets during that time, even if they’re fleeting. The current approaching trine to Neptune which peaks at the end of October, happened around the same time last year, and it brings with it an opportunity to absorb quickly any new ideas, while still comprehending them deeply.

AstrologyThose ideas could be quite profound too considering the water signs involved. The inspiration accompanying them can inspire the imagination, as if hearing celestial music of the spheres, or the voice of one’s guardian angel. Some of us will hear, while some will be intuitively inspired to be the speaker, singer or player that inspires those hearers. But certainly all of us can tap into a mood of selfless love that is available now. This is a love that rises above selfish or mundane lust, and enables us to feel true compassion, to see through the thin veil that separates us from each other, and to therefore glimpse our common unity, if even for a moment.

And it is that mood which enables the healer to heal even their opponent, to forgive him when he knows not what he does in ignorance, or if nothing else, at least to dream of that utopian ideal. It is only those who are grounded enough to apply those visions practically who will seem to benefit, as they use their insight to back the right investment, follow the best current, arrive in the right place at the right time, or say the right words to inspire their hearer when he or she most needs it.

So let yourself be attuned, though it may be at your own pace or when you least expect it, for inspiration seldom follows a schedule. A dictaphone at the bedside has allowed more than one visionary to capture their dream on record in the middle of the night, and go on to turn that revelation into the source of inspiration it can be.

Upcoming mars opposition neptune

By the second week in October , we have a brief passing alignment of Mars and Neptune in opposition. Now Mars and Neptune are of themselves strange bedfellows.

AstrologyThe drive and action of Mars becomes dissipated or challenged by the Neptune archetype coming into our life via an outside source. Oppositions of planets regularly play themselves out in relationship encounters, where one person carries the qualities of the one planet and the other person adopts the opposing planet’s expression. Neptune here dissipates the action nature of Mars, particularly into subtle escapist activities like the old “wine, women and song trio”.

Other crucial activities may potentially get sidetracked if time gets misused and misappropriated. There can be a feeling of insidious procrastination if we’re not constantly keeping the goal in mind, evaluating the priorities, and remaining clear about the fact that life is short and only getting shorter, so we need to use the limited energy and drive that remains left to us  for the highest goal.

It’s ok to dream big now, wish upon a star, but just be sure it’s the most important one in your chart. The desire nature can become hard to control or keep focused on that main priority if we’re not careful.  Also watch out for getting mixed up in secret or underhand activities that are difficult to control. Neptune is so nebulous in its influence, and unconscious urges may slip out or be played out in our inter-relationship dynamics.

Physical ailments representing repressed desires may manifest psychosomatically, so keep a check on any injuries that appear. Ultimately and most importantly, Neptune can so easily play the sob story in a way that you find your sympathies being taken advantage of. If it’s an old pattern, then even more reason to nip it in the bud, because you can.
