A few more thoughts on the Neptune opposition action that's been happening.
We're in the midst of dissolution and rebuilding. Neptune dissolves (especially when it opposes planets in Virgo) but those same planets go on to conjunct Jupiter and trine Pluto. Venus in Virgo will trine Pluto on October 23rd, and conjunct Jupiter on October 25th (I'll write about this in a few days). I've already discussed how empowered Mars in Virgo is these days.
An opposition to Neptune will take something away. Neptune dissolves what you thought made sense. It lures you into unknown waters, then you look back and realize you're miles from shore. The ultimate goal (which is really the goal of all outer planet transits) is to release what is no longer valid. Ego is often the first casualty, because Neptune is impersonal. It's big, transcendent energy that reminds you of how inconsequential your personal desires, obsessions and rules are. It's humbling, because Neptune's going to tell you that what you've been clinging to is not that important.
Not to invalidate anyone's pain, but Neptune doesn't care. It's not about you, and there's no personal vendetta against you. The message is always "There's more out there." I recognize that if you're in the grips of a debilitating scenario, this may read as insensitive. But Neptune is big picture; you hurt, everyone hurts. Some people think Neptune is about cozy embraces, but that's Cancer. Neptune is impersonal empathy and healing, connecting to everyone and feeling everything. When you catch a glimpse of this, it can make you feel small. That's the moment you release what you've been assigning value to, and open yourself up. That's the moment you start to heal.
That's when you ask "What's next?"
How fortunate that these Pluto/Jupiter contacts are nearby, enabling you to rebuild right now. Make it better, stronger, more relevant, more powerful. October 6th to October 25th is a gift. You're not left hanging from your cross (unless that's what you choose). You've got masterful energies in the Earth signs, lining up to help you create a new reality.
