Astrology in real life
I’m working with a Pisces and recalled this post from 2010..
“I don’t know what closure is,” my husband said. “Who gets closure? You almost never get closure. If you do get closure then fine but I’d not looking for it. I’m going to try to get some closure,” he said. “The concept makes no sense. I don’t know who comes up with this stuff…”.
As a Venus Neptune type, I know exactly what he means. Nothing ever ends. There is no way to close anything because you never know when a person is going to pop up in real life, your thoughts, your dreams, in conversation, in a poem, in a song…
I watched a movie the other night that featured a man who carried the shadow for his entire community. He was innocent, but chosen for this role. He accepted the situation. He was a nice guy who drew a bad card, basically.

“If anything I might have just said has helped you, if anything I might have just said helped you just carry on, your rise uphill may no longer seem a struggle and your appetite for pain may all but be gone.”
–Blues Traveler, “Just Wait”
There’s a mutable t-square in the sky with Mars, Sun-Mercury and Chiron Neptune. Mars is a little wide for opposition with Neptune but Chiron pulls it in. Mars involved with Mercury, particularly in Mercury-ruled signs, is fast, quick, wheels turning. But the addition of Neptune-Chiron can make it less straightforward, hazy. If it were part of a movie, it would be the flashback scene.

Astrology in Real Life…
This is from 2007. If you’re confused about Neptune in astrology, this might help.
I was talking to my husband before we married…
“People suspect your motives,” I said. “They think you are up to something… up to no good. It’s the same thing that happened when we were kids. (The Professor Of Art History in The Soldier and P) Happened in 2003 too, remember.”
“Yeah, that guy told me you were oppressing me to liberate yourself,” I said. (This is the ultimate insult to a Special Forces soldier who is sworn to liberate the oppressed). Continue reading Undermining By Questioning A Person’s Motives – Nasty, Nasty Neptune
“Let us just say I was deeply unhappy, but I didn’t know it because I was so happy all the time.”
–Harris Telemacher, “LA Story”
To paraphrase an alcohol-related meme: I may not freak out often, but when I do it’s usually a Neptune-related issue. Today’s outburst was triggered by seeing the dirty cheese-grater in the sink for the third time in under 24 hours. So while the actuality of the outburst itself falls under Mars-Mercury, its underlying cause was the veil dropping and the fact that I had put the veil in place at all. Each previous time it happened instead of saying, “Hey, who used the cheese-grater? I need you to wash it,” I just Neptuned it away and washed it myself. So when the veil dropped I not only had to address the reality of that one small task but I also saw all the other undone tasks I had ignored. In one moment everything went from A-OK to mom going ballistic because the house is a disaster area.

“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.”
I have a somewhat psychic, highly empathic chart. Much as I love to talk about myself, and I do, at great length, I am loathe to expose that part because it can sound so foo-foo-fairy. But I have these dreams, dreams that don’t entirely feel like they are mine. It’s a feeling I’m left with, a feeling about an energy outside myself but to which I am connected.

“There was a little girl who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good she was very, very good, but when she was bad she was horrid.”
–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I am a Pisces, and boy can I spot bad Pisces. I’m not saying I’m good Pisces all the time. Those Pisces are so rare that they have whole religions devoted to them. But everyone has Pisces in their chart somewhere, in some house at least, as well as a Neptune somewhere. So in some regard, we all deal with Pisces (Neptune) in ourselves and with each other. I think I just had a revelation (Pisces Mercury) about how to deal.

“There are only two things I can’t stand in this world: People who are intolerant of other people’s cultures… and the Dutch.”
–Nigel Powers, “Goldmember”
Allergies are a reaction, a sensitivity, to agents in one’s environment. The most obvious examples of allergies are physical reactions, when particulates cause a physical reaction in the body. Sensitivity resonates to Neptune and Pisces. Sensing and particulates are a Gemini/Mercury matter. Between my Neptune and my Pisces Mercury and Sun, everything in my chart is touched by something Neptunian. What am I allergic to? What have you got?

This was post the House on Fry St. Era. Chris and I had moved into a small brick apartment building one street over.
I befriended one of our Indian neighbors. His name was Harsh which he said meant happiness. “I know, I know, that is like the opposite of happiness, Whoa, Harsh! But I assure you, it means happiness.”
Harsh had a 10th house Leo Sun/Cancer Moon combo and was into rock climbing. He frequently tried to coerce me into joining him at the rock climbing gym
One afternoon Harsh came knocking at the door, not an unusual occurrence. But this time, instead of wanting to hang out and practice guitar, he had a question. “What do you know about poetry?”
“Confusion is a word we have invented for an order which is not yet understood”
Neptune is a very slow-moving planet. It is considered generational. That is to say people of the same age will generally have Neptune in the same sign. Therefore its house placement and its relationship to personal planets are what personalize its impact. My own Neptune is in Scorpio which places me within a certain age range; all you have to do to figure that out is consult an ephemeris. My Neptune falls into my 4th house, moon-ruled and concerned with matters of home, hearth, housing and parental issues.
