Neptune is currently transiting through the sign it resonates most strongly to (and along with Jupiter, rules), making it as characteristic of Neptunian energies as it can get; by this I mean there’s a purity to it to which, when we ‘tune in’, we have access to–but even inadvertently, we absorb or otherwise allow that Neptunian fog to permeate the atmosphere–and today’s contacts tell a story. Neptune receives a quincunx from retro transiting Mercury in Libra, and contraparallels Pallas. This suggests a few things: messages, communications, even our own thoughts might be difficult to fathom–or perhaps it will be the hidden messages, the ideas beneath the words and thoughts, that are tough to discern–so that we somehow miss at least some of the meaning of all that’s conveyed. Our own cogitations might not go any better, as the mind obscures what’s really motivating our conclusions and compelling our thoughts to go ‘here’ not ‘there’. We may be moved by the spiritual, the imaginative and the imaginal (in both the positive and negative senses), and Collective mind influences to think along certain lines or to believe certain things, and bouncing ideas off others (Libra) doesn’t really help–but know consciously that you have only part of the story (or that you have the story but are missing some important element), and your ability to respond and think effectively jumps markedly.
The contraparallel to Pallas just piles on the uncertainty, and brings to the party an inspiration to recklessness and impracticality. How do you behave when you know you’re teetering dangerously close to making a series of bad decisions? Do you listen to your more cautious nature, and pull back, or do you plunge in, out of an addiction to drama, an inclination to make the internal chaos visible, or an urge to fan the spark of Self-destruction? The current state of your natal Saturn and Uranus (what transits they’re receiving, where they are by Solar Arc), and secondarily what those transiting bodies may be contacting in your chart will tell the story of your current responsive nature (that, and the Moon) or susceptibility to unwise behavior based on a Neptunian fantasy, delusion, or awareness of one’s individual speck-ness within the Cosmos.
Neptune can beckon to us, inviting us toward doing something decidedly unwise, through illusion, through something that can appear perfectly reasonable–and that’s where we must remember, that between today’s contacts and the Merc retro, we are unable to perceive clearly–no matter how clear the matter seems to be.
Tomorrow, the 30th, we see the Sun-Mercury Inferior Conjunction, with the Sun quincunx Neptune. This suggests that what is seeded with the Inferior Conjunction has an element of fantasy, imagination, or the unreal that will need adjustment as the matter grows.
Just to let you know, I won’t be posting much forecast material, anymore–review of my practices during this Merc retro makes me feel that this is a maw that can never be filled–and that kind of Sisyphean effort is not for me, much as some of you may appreciate it. So, I’ll post on focused topics like this, or in a broader observational vein when I’m moved to, and you can sign up to follow the blog and be notified if and when it happens. See my books here; the ones on the asteroids Chiron, Juno, and Vesta are very much like having a class with me, if that would interest you.
And a reminder: unless you are a current client with an active order, please do not write directly to me–check the Services page, and if it says I’m booked, I’m booked!
What you post on your blog is always much appreciated in whatever form you choose to do so.
Do what is right for you, and always be open to reviewing that… that’s the message, right?
It absolutely is, upturned–thank you–it’s a prescription I hope everyone will follow.

yes sisyphus, but, something, so moving to these times.. give everything to them yes , please christ, I talked to the planets… you were the best, your effort, appreciated … like greek song i think, knowledge is forever.. do we not owe it guardianship? truly human wonder- depths of knowledge.. yes, yes, yes,… I would say rest
I think i see love in the world. I think, I see hope, an end to anger, beginning understanding – miracles but I am a damned fool.
The last thing I would call you is a fool. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words. Good to know you are seeing around you positive evolution in love and understanding. I think of your remarks like a miner thinks of the canary–an early warning system–so if you’re seeing good, we all will be, soon! best, jd

I’ve often wondered what motivates one to freely share freely information and insight.
There is a thought belief that if one has a gift it should be offered free of charge as charging for it may make the gift go away; but then again, in true Neptunian spirit, perhaps that saying was made up by a particularly stingy person 🙂
I, for one, LOVE reading your blogs and will continue to do so whenever you feel inspired to share them with the Universe.
If money were not the matter, well, things would be so much easier for everyone.
As Neptune aspects every thing in my natal chart, one way or another–except for my Sun–I feel your discouragement deeply…Blame that on my Venus in Pisces, if you will.
Sisyphus (ruler of the winds), managed the master trick of defeating death itself before being condemned in Hades to eternally roll a heavy stone up a hill. But that was some time ago…
In the XXI Century, one’s work is neither everlasting nor futile; in fact it’s full of, albeit often hidden, rewards.
Blessings and love,
Thank you, Alecs, for your very kind remarks. I think you may have misread me–I’m not discouraged, I’m choosing a different emphasis–I only mention the ‘forecast maw’ because to offer a look ahead is a never-ending task. And money is not the matter for me–time is–and since I’m the only one who can decide how to use my allotment of it, I decided just to let others know I wouldn’t be offering quite the same thing I have been (my four planets in Libra thought it would only be polite to let people know they needn’t come every day). And by the way, the interpretation of astrology is not a gift, it’s something I’ve worked hard to learn–a developed and practiced skill–one wouldn’t think of suggesting to any professional who has studied for years (about 30, in my case) that what they do is really something bestowed on them from on high that obligates them to work without compensation–so it is with astrologers.
My best to you–
