Back in 2012, when Neptune ingressed into Pisces, I blogged about its effect, especially that I have Mars, South Node and Sun in Pisces. I was half dreading how that could manifest in reality, though my fellow astro pals were a lot more optimistic.
Neptune conjunct my natal Mars came and went, pretty uneventfully, with only a feeling of lethargy. I paid so much attention to Neptune that I totally neglected transiting Saturn in Scorpio sending a wonderful trine to my Mars. No matter how listless I had felt, I could somehow muster up enough discipline to plough through each day.
Four years on, Neptune is now hovering over my Mars/Sun midpoint. The story has changed. No longer do I have Saturn backing me up. The trine is now a square, with Saturn ingressed into Sagittarius. Sagittarius is too fun-loving for my earth-laden chart, but I guess that is the lesson for me - to restructure the way I work, to go with the flow and be a free spirit.
With my psychological astrology background, I thought modern astrology is all that we need in this civilised day and age. However, transiting Neptune oppose my Saturn is certainly dissolving my current boundaries as I soon discovered how much traditional astrology had to offer. So with Jupiter transiting my 2nd house, I'm expanding my knowledge-base considerably. However, it still leaves me with the feeling that as I'm learning more and more, I know less and less (Saturn transiting my 5th)!
I'll go with the flow and see where this Saturn-Neptune square will take my mutable planets. But one thing for sure, the Universe is forever throwing us signs and it's up to us to decipher its meanings encrypted within.
