For one thing, my life energy (Sun) is ebbing and flowing at this time, due to illness. It’s encouraging, because eventually the Sun will move beyond Neptune. I’d not be surprised to see some more of my symptoms dissipate.
I also feel a strong vocation to service. This is nothing new for me, but my ego (Sun) disappearing or being sacrificed or transcended is new.
The conjunction is in Scorpio. I am definitely dealing with a lot of death and pain of others…hopefully, with some compassion.
Progressed Sun conjunct Neptune
“This aspect in the Progressed chart has two distinct sides, and we cannot know in advance which side will be more prominent. You should be prepared for either (or both) directions which it may take. The influence of the Sun is to illuminate, and Neptune has many hidden influences. On the one side, it greatly stimulates your awareness, often in ways that are difficult to understand rationally. You are sensitive to others and know how they feel intuitively, and could be more concerned with their benefit than with your own. Therefore, the aspect is good for any activities which involve helping others. The caution is, try to avoid neglecting your own welfare. Your spiritual consciousness will be aroused, and you will be concerned about the deeper truths hidden behind the everyday world. Interest in mysticism, astrology, spiritualism, and psychic phenomena could be strong during this time. Understanding of the occult and many mysteries can be unveiled, but you must be sure of Divine protection in the unveiling. Avoid negative cults and keep yourself spiritually well-grounded. The other side of the aspect is the impulse toward escapism. You may want to leave the responsibilities of the everyday world, and live out your fantasies. The symptoms of this side of the aspect are psychological weariness and feelings of inability to cope with the world as it is, resulting in the desire for your own private world. Daydreaming is likely, and it can be harmless, but try to avoid letting it progress into a full scale effort to avoid reality. Avoid the use of alcohol and drugs: they provide negative escapism, and besides your body is negatively sensitive to drugs and allergies at this time. Positive means of escape could be to attend a guided spiritual retreat, or to get off by yourself for meditation and positive contemplation.”
That’s from the Progressed Chart Report.
I also have Pluto transiting my 12th house which is another Pluto/Neptune exchange. It’s most definitely made me aware of the power of the ethereal.
