Neptune will turn retrograde at 25 degrees Pisces on June 28th. The planet will turn direct on December 3rd at 22 degrees.
Neptune’s movements tend to escape people but not this time! Mars is heading into Gemini where it will whip things up for seven months. Gemini squares Pisces.
July may slip by if you don’t have planets in your chart aspected by Neptune at these degrees. But when August rolls around, we’ll be in Virgo season which sets up an opposition to Neptune. They’ll be an impact.
Specifically, Mercury, the sun and Venus will oppose the Neptune at various times in August and September. But towards the end of September, Mars in Gemini will come within orb of Neptune (and the sun and Venus in Virgo) giving a fairly long-lasting Mutable T-square.
Mutable signs express in different ways at different times. There will probably be verbal attack and bickering but the idea of the blind leading the blind comes to mind as well. Mars is a leader! And Neptune can trick a person like nothing else I can think of. That’s another manifestation right there. Your mind leaves you.
We’ll see some brilliant expressions of the energy as well. Alan Turing comes to mind. The veil lifts and the code is cracked.
This stress will peak the second half of September.
October we’ll be dealing with the Mars Neptune clash alone but then what happens in November?
The sun, Venus and Mercury will transit Sagittarius in November, setting up another Mutable T-square that will be sustained into December.
When the Mercury-ruled signs clash with Neptune, anxiety is a common result. Mars will hot this up. Virgo’s involvement can potentially help (with discernment), but I wouldn’t bet on it. Think now about how you’re going to transcend this.
When planets in Sagittarius create the T-square, the energy will shift. It’s possible a person have inspired high-flying ideas but I wouldn’t bet on this either. I’m thinking, worry about the future and perhaps fight over beliefs and facts that have been obscured or distorted by various media types… try all media types. Widespread confusion expected!
Mars will retrograde out of orb of Neptune, the second half of December but the planets will clash again. the end of February, 2023, throughout most of March. The sun and Mercury will conjunct Neptune in Pisces, mid-March. Arrrgh!
If your birthday falls in one these peak periods, you might want to get your Solar Return Report to get some idea what areas of your life will be affected by this. Definition helps when it comes to Neptune.
