Neptune is the culprit, here. The energy of this planet gives shape and form to our spiritual beliefs, and influences our dreams and other activities that go on beneath the surface of things. The conscious and unconscious self, combined, bring together our whole being. But when we’re unaware of who we are on the inside, it’s hard to match the face we show others on the outside. Neptune enhances our sensitivities to the elusive energy that surrounds our existence, and provides guidance on how to fully navigate the depths of our soul. But this energy knows no bounds and can be downright deceptive; too much Neptune can create a mirage of misconception with regards to what’s real and what’s been imagined.
Since 1998, the planet Neptune has been traveling through the sign of Aquarius, thus impacting your Sun. The Sun in Astrology is concerned with our ego self; when combined with the energy of Neptune, who we are can become a bit of a blur. Thankfully, this planet will move out of your sign on February 4th, 2012, never to return in your lifetime. I’m sure you can sense the planet’s impending departure. Once Neptune moves on to the sign of Pisces, you will see a marked shift in your self perception, as well as how you want to align yourself with that which is fitting for your general well being.
This year, you will begin to put back together the pieces of you, gaining a clearer and fuller picture. There will be other planets helping you along the way, like Uranus in Aries bringing life to your manner of thought and speech. After 12 long years, you are due for a fresh outlook, one that will leave you feeling more sure of who you are than you have felt in quite some time. Meanwhile, Neptune in Pisces will see to it that you begin to place a higher value on ‘self’, and those things that matter most. 2012 is going to be a banner year, Aquarius, with a new and improved you set to emerge.
Happy New Year, Aquarius!
