Good Morning Friends,
Neptune is moving forward today! This planet has been moving backwards in the Sky for the last 5 months. When a planet moves backwards, we begin to feel its effects on more of an internal and reflective level. Neptune represents imagination, and tells us not to get bogged down by the details. So, while he was moving backwards, we were being called to look over the areas of life that we may have been deceiving ourselves—we had to reflect over where we had lost touch with reality. Neptune goes retrograde every single year, and this marks a time in which we have an opportunity to refine our dreams. Once Neptune goes direct we have a greater understanding of how to make our dream a reality, and we are able to start using our imaginations again. With Neptune going direct today, it is time to call on your higher vision yet again, and image your ideal life. This is a particularly blessed occasion, because right now we have Saturn speaking with Neptune, which will help ensure that we don’t lose sight of reality during this process. Neptune is telling that it is ok to dream big, while Saturn is showing how to make those dreams come true.
