The planet Neptune Neptune is stationary-direct today after about 5 months in retrograde motion. The general consensus on retrograde planets is that they tend to work on a more subtle and subjective level, as we review and go back over issues related to the planet and natal house where it's in apparent backward motion.
Neptune represents the urge/need to transcend the mundane and experience a deeper sense of unity and connection with the anima mundi (world soul)- to realize our dreams, visions, and highest aspirations. Negatively, Neptune relates to blurred boundaries, a lack of focus, illusion, delusion, deception, denial, confusion, and uncertainty- the desire to escape reality, and also addictive behavior.
Neptune is changing direction in tight square to the May 20 solar eclipse degree (0.21 Gemini)- so if that eclipse hit something in your personal horoscope, you may notice the current activation from Neptune (0.22 Pisces).
When any planet stations direct or retrograde, it's archetypal energy is amplified. And when an outer planet changes direction, it can takes weeks for it to get up to speed. But the forward motion suggests we can begin to move forward with the outward manifestation of our dreams and visions (Neptune).
With the Moon in pleasant Libra today (Sunday), things are likely to be socially pleasant and generally soft around the edges.
