So one of the things I’ve learned over the course of my lifetime as a Saturn Neptune type is what you are afraid is going to happen is not what is going to happen. For example, say you’re 12th house Saturn and you have some awful dream. The first thing you think is oh, fuck me! That’s going to come true.
Your dreams or the fears that constellate seemingly out of nowhere virtually never happen. It is what you are afraid is going to happen, not what is really going to happen. And don’t get me wrong here.
This does not mean nothing bad is going to happen. In fact, often enough the thing that happens is much, much worse than whatever it was you feared! ::smiles::
I’m sorry but it’s true. I have had things be so incredibly bad there is no imagining worse and then it gets not only worse, but much worse! How many degrees of wretched can there be? I have wondered this many times.
But you don’t have worry about that either. There are (Saturn Neptune) ways to deal with… anything. And I am going to write about them. But at moment I am just trying to make this point because it’s key:
Saturn Neptune fears are not real. The fears that come in on the tide are hologram. And this is very good to know if you suffer this way… which pretty much all of us are these days with these two planets opposing in the sky. And think about this in the news.
Remember when they told up to use duct tape against chemical weapons after 9-11? And people ran out and bought all the duct tape. And just think how squirrel-ey that is. It’s a hologram (Neptune) defense (Saturn) against a hologram fear!
And everyone stored water too. Surely “they” aka the nebulous (Neptune) oppressors (Saturn) will poison the water supply…
And is this what happened? No.
So you get my point. The thing you are so scared is going to happen is not going to happen. You are much more apt to hurt yourself, slipping on a stool while duct taping your window shut than you are from a chemical weapon seeping into your specific home! So what’s that mean?
What it means is when the fears come, or the dreams, it does wonders to be armed with this information. No more wondering, “Is this dream real?” Instead you can remind yourself:
“That is what I am afraid is going to happen, not what is going to happen…”
And I will tell you right now, this is no magic bullet. But it will help. And I’d know.
See, someone told me this about 20 years ago. And there is no end the ache I have been spared. When I have a bad dream, I dismiss it immediately. I erase it (Neptune) rather than invest in it (Saturn). Because I have learned the things I am afraid are going to happen are exactly what never does! Ever!
And this leaves me to deal with what does happen, or is happening. It leaves me to deal with reality (Saturn)… in a Neptune way of course. 😉
So what about you? Do your dreams scare you? Are you sometimes overwhelmed with fear and feelings (Neptune) of insecurity (Saturn)? Especially lately? How do you deal?
