I was going to write about something else until Neptune rolled my mind. He is currently part way through a twenty plus year transit in my third house and is making an exact square to my first house Venus again. You’d think I’d be used what he can do by now but truthfully, I’m not. Gah.
Most of the time this transit is not a problem but when Neptune makes an exact aspect to one of my natal personal planets or Angles, then I remember what a pain in the backside it is. My ability to stay focused goes south and my thoughts drift all over the place. If I don’t act on something as it crosses my mind, I’m in trouble!
Is there an upside to this transit? In fact there is. I have noticed a distinct change in the way I process information for instance. Now it is easier than ever to dump data in and up pops the answer! Since my natal Mercury is on the twelfth house side of my Ascendant information tends to rise up out of the back of my mind as a matter of course. Neptune lazing through my third house has deepened this trend. Many times answers emerge on the cusp of waking and drifting off to sleep . . . and almost every time it is good information. Creative solutions to artistic projects definitely emerge this way.
Now I don’t consider myself psychic in the usual sense at all. I don’t pluck information out of thin air or have visions. What has changed is the way I process the data already there. All those years of studying charts, talking to people about their charts and reading many, many books on astrology is now paying off by providing me with a rich source of information. My mind makes connections holistically and THEN I have to go back and figure out how I reached those conclusions. Needing to sleep on it is no joke for me.
Unlike those who have Neptune in the third house natally like astrologer Donna Cunningham and astrologer Jeremy Neal, this transit does eventually come to an end. Neptune in Pisces will wander into my fourth house in 2017. By the way, the reason this transit has lasted so long is using Koch houses, Aquarius is intercepted in my third house . . . but that’s another story.
