Neptune Stationary

Neptune - the mystical realm of magic, imagination, intuition, cosmic consciousness, and illusion - is currently stationary in Pisces.

In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Neptune is allied with Nephthys, dark twin of solar Isis. Nephthys is a goddess of the night, also known as the “Veiled Isis.” As her story goes, Nephthys is the seducer of her sister’s husband, Osiris. They conceive a child – Anubis – whom she cannot take home because her husband (Set, the Warrior King) will kill him. Nephthys abandons her baby, leaving him cold and alone on the desert floor.

There is a happy ending – baby Anubis is rescued by his Aunt Isis – but Nephthys becomes the villain of this tale, reviled by many. The image of the abandoning mother strikes a painful chord. Yet if we consider carefully, there is a mystery here – something we do not know. Did Nephthys intend to kill her son? Or did she know that her sister was nearby and Anubis would be saved? Is there a deeper meaning to this story … a greater plan we cannot see?

Abandonment is a wound, one that comes with the experience of life. What is lost through this wound is trust. What assumptions are you making about a current situation? Might there be something hidden behind the veil – something you cannot see and do not understand? Can you trust there is a greater plan?

During this current station, Neptune is forming a Grand Cross with Mercury aligned with Venus, Ceres, and retrograde Mars. This is a strong planetary pattern, saturated by confusion and amplified by Jupiter in a loose conjunction with Neptune and part of the Grand Cross. Our current atmosphere is steeped in Neptunian mystery and certainty is elusive.

Neptune turns direct on December 3 at 7:15 pm EST and will remain direct until June 28, 2023.
