Neptune in Pisces goes retrograde (reversed) on June 7th (until November 13th). Dreams, creative urges, intuition or buried emotions can all be intensified or revisited. When the planet of dreams moves backwards, hidden issues become more urgent. Patience and acceptance is the best way to handle this influence, because what comes out of hiding will do so in its own time. June 8th sees an excitable New Moon in Gemini, bracketed by aggressive Mars and enthusiastic Jupiter in the same sign. Expect more options, information and a few surprises (Mercury in Cancer will be hit with a revealing square from Uranus on the same day). There's tons of opportunity here as long as you respond with flexibility and an open mind.
Neptune retrogrades in your hidden sector, triggering energies so subtle you may barely notice them. But rest assured, changes are happening. You may experience a gradual intensification of dreams, unfulfilled longings or unexpressed wishes. The same can be true for doubts or illusions. Whatever nudges you from the background is asking for your attention. Pay attention to that whisper. The New Moon in your communication sector can jumpstart a surprising conversation/introduction, trigger a flood of (revealing) information or present you with a critical choice. Mars (your ruler) in this sector has contributed to a buildup of questions or new information. Now you'll be presented with an answer, or an answer will be demanded from you. This is also an excellent time to launch any new project/business that features communication or information (a blog, job search, marketing campaign, etc.)
Neptune goes retrograde in your sector of friends and groups, pushing you to reconsider a wish, or where you've been directing your energy. If you've been disillusioned, this is an opportunity to double check your expectations. What you've been aiming for is not impossible, but you'll have to tweak a few things. Alternatively, you could revisit a big, hopeful goal or charitable (volunteer) project. The key with this influence is to remember that people do not always match your exalted dreams, but what they do have to offer is still valid. The New Moon hits your security sector, jumpstarting a conversation about relationship needs, a pay increase or alternative source of income. A few ideas/options may be presented, and one or two may catch you off guard. If you're prepared to do a bit of juggling (and keep an open mind) this could be a prosperous new beginning for you.
Neptune retrogrades in your career sector, urging you to reformulate that big career dream. Rather than giving up, know that you're being redirected towards a certain point. It could be back to where you originally felt the inspiration. Neptune's energy is a tough fit in the sector of business and ambition. This energy is slippery, and it's easy to wander off course. This retrograde period will be a course correction. The New Moon in your sign can signal an exciting lifestyle change, new relationship status, job, attitude or place of residence. Much has been happening in your sign, as the majority of planets have been energizing it since the start of May. Now it's time to use your new motivation/ideas and get started on the next chapter. Even as Mercury (your ruler) is hit with an awkward square from Uranus on the same day, you should be able to deal with any irritating conversations or uncomfortable revelations.
Neptune retrograde can see you reviewing distant dreams or opportunities. Ideals/hopes in the areas of long distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing may need to be reconsidered. Note that this could go both ways: if you've let an opportunity slide, it could return (make sure you grab it). Or something you've been pursuing may turn out to be further away than you thought. This influence is about adjusting your perceptions to current realities. The New Moon occurs in your hidden sector, so there might be an increase in dream activity, private messages or half-understood information. Watch what develops now, but know that you don't have a clear view (yet). Choices may be unclear, or there may be a second option that you hadn't considered. Dig a little deeper before you give your answer. A behind-the-scenes message or unexpected contact (from someone you'd given up on) could also materialize, as Mercury in your sign receives a surprising nudge from Uranus.
Neptune retrogrades in your sector of shared finances, adding another layer to taxes, debts, loans or your partner's finances. Nothing will be cut and dried now, so hold off on investments/major expenses if possible. Alternatively, intimacy and emotional sharing could slow down or intensify. In both cases (financial or emotional) vague fears/doubts/illusions from the past may be to blame. Something that you thought you had released may still need to be exorcised. Look below the surface. The New Moon can introduce an exciting new connection/friend/group affiliation or personal project. This is an excellent time to spread the word/launch something that you want public support for, or simply get out and socialize. One caution here; watch what you say, as this fast-paced energy may push you to reveal more than intended. Not everything is meant to be shared with the public.
Neptune goes retrograde in your partnership sector, and the flow in your love life may experience a hitch. Just when you thought you were getting the hang of this "release all expectations" thing, you find yourself dragged back into old worries/illusions. Don't get discouraged, this is simply an opportunity to clear up what's been lingering. A return to previous issues does not equal failure. With Neptune, perfection/completion is an illusion, so just address whatever topics reappear, and keep working on letting go. You're doing fine. The New Moon in your career sector can signal a new job/position/important contact or lead. If you're looking, this is prime time to start sending out resumes. If you're interested in exploring new career opportunities/promoting your business, you may have a multiple choices to play with. Some developments may feel like a bit much to handle, but keep in mind that the unexpected is not necessarily out of your league.
Neptune retrograde can trigger the return of health issues, or compel you to have a second look at your diet, exercise regime or energy levels. Issues with drugs, alcohol or other addictive substances may demand your attention. Alternatively, priorities, work duties/instructions can shift. Rather than scrambling to impose structure, go with the flow. This influence can also indicate a loophole that allows you avoid an unwanted task. The New Moon occurs in your sector of opportunities, bringing some sparkling new beginnings involving long distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing. Multiple choices in any of these areas may be a theme. This is the time to promote yourself, because you'll have a greater chance of reaching a wide audience. Watch for a surprising message(that sets you on a whole new path) from a teacher, mentor or long-distance friend.
Neptune retrograde in your sector of creativity and celebrations can delay a creative project/dream, or you may find your inspiration is temporarily on hold. Alternatively, you may backtrack and revisit something/someone that you gave up on. All delays and backtracking are meant to confirm the depth of your desire to bring that dream into reality. You know the one I'm talking about. It can't be rushed, and the path may be unclear, but you are making progress. Don't give up. The New Moon in your sector of shared resources can present you with documents (involving taxes, debts, loans or your partner's finances) to sign. Juggling two issues may be a theme; two properties, two agreements or the combination of emotional and financial intimacy that you share with your partner. Money and feelings will go hand in hand on this Moon, and you expect those feelings to become heated.
Neptune retrograde in your home/family sector can see you pulling back, going deeper or paying closer attention to historical/family issues with alcohol/addiction/sacrifice or denial. There's something to be uncovered, so use your increased intuition to make the connections. Consider what you've sacrificed in the past, and if that theme is repeating. Or if you've finally let all that go. The New Moon in your partnership sector can signal a new relationship or new chapter in an existing relationship. Communication is key with this one; before you choose/agree, make absolutely sure both of you are on the same page. There may still be some tense, back and forth over certain details, and they shouldn't be ignored. Don't assume that the little things will take care of themselves at some magical point in the future. Hammer out the small stuff now.
Neptune retrograde in your communication sector can see you backtracking on an idea/statement or revisiting a previous inspiration. There won't be any logic behind this, just a feeling that it's the right thing to do. Go with that, and see where it takes you. Communication in general may be more emotional and intuitive; you may say/write things that seem random to others, but feel essential to you. The New Moon can revitalize your health, exercise or work routine. New and unexpected duties may be introduced, but so will your renewed sense of ambition to get things done. Multiple/conflicting priorities may hit you all at once, so get ready to accommodate new demands and shift your focus at a moment's notice.
Neptune retrograde can push you to reexamine what you want (regarding relationships, finances or emotional security). Your value system has gradually been shifting anyway (with Neptune's transit through this sector) but for the next few months you'll be on an intensified journey to explore what you want to develop, and want you want to let go of. External symptoms of this energy can manifest as issues with your earned money, or the awareness that your partner doesn't quite mesh with your needs. This New Moon can be a hot one for you; watch for a fast-paced attraction/flirtation to pop up, or the start of a fabulous creative project or exciting personal goal. This is your chance to shine, even if some of these developments feel overwhelming. Even if this becomes a case of too much/too soon, you should be able to handle it all as long as you stay flexible.
Neptune retrograde in your sign can push you to rethink a life plan, or do some serious soul searching. You may feel like withdrawing (over the next few months) in order to get the space and peace you need. Your emotions could be intensified, overruling what you've previously committed to or decided. Do whatever feels right, even if others are impatiently demanding a clear answer. This is your journey and it can't be rushed. The New Moon can signal a relocation, a new addition (perhaps more than one) to the family or the start of multiple, little projects/repairs around the home. You may also receive/discover some surprising family news that puts you into a spin. Domestic affairs will be hectic, so give yourself plenty of room to decompress.
