“The new years walk, restoring
Through a bright cloud of tears, the years, restoring
With a new verse the ancient rhyme. Redeem
The time. Redeem the
The unread vision in the higher dream
While jeweled unicorns draw by the gilded hearse.” TS Eliot
There are two significant influences in the sky now – the Sun conjunct Saturn and Neptune’s recent station direct.
Neptune is the planet of dreams, visions and spiritual journeys. It has been retrograde since mid June. Neptune’s shadow side is associated with illusion and addiction – in the sense that addiction can be related to a derailed spiritual journey. Neptune is also related to projection – how unacknowledged qualities in the self are perceived as negative or threatening in others.
As Neptune starts to move direct it bodes well to look at what dreams you would like to bring to life now and to envision a process through which they can grow and flourish.
The Sun/ Saturn conjunction ended a yearly cycle and ushers in a new one. If life has been feeling overly burdensome or as if it is “all work and no play”, the pressures are likely to ease now and positive results of your efforts may become visible. It is a good time for organization, planning and catching up on tasks left undone.
