Sludge Party ~ Neptune Direct

celestial-dreams.jpg

UPDATE: The transits are fast and furious for most of 2018: This morning’s Full Gemini Moon and then tomorrow Neptune stations direct! Have you felt spiritually depleted, scattered, overwhelmed? The sludge party should be over soon. Get more sleep, stay grounded, and eat protein.   Happy Full Moon and get your Gemini on 🙂

As an homage to the film Sausage Party, I propose that we name Saturday night’s Neptune station the Sludge Party.

I dreamt last night of being prevented from exiting a train at my stop so I had no choice but to get off at the next stop. While the distance between stops was short, I was transported to another land. It was beautiful , with many waterways and falls. I spotted a pinball arcade and a Wawa ( local unbiquitous convenience store) , but everywhere I wandered, my calls for help were denied. I approached everyone and asked for the name of the town, but no one would answer. I told others I was lost and again, no response. I saw a spectacular pedestrian bridge that was massive. When I awoke I knew this dream was significant. I was reliving a childhood trauma of getting off at the wrong school bus stop at around age 5 or 6. No one was waiting  for me at my stop and I refused to leave with a neighbor child, because I was certain that her stop was not my home. I was mistaken. A woman found me and took me home and I knew my phone number. I was safely returned home, but this event left a huge scar. In the dream, however, I was an adult who felt ignored and alone. Everything seemed a wee bit out of focus and in ” slow mo.”

Hence the sludge party.

Since I never wrote my David Bowie tribute, I will showcase some of his music here tonight. Bowie was quite Neptunian, with Neptune squaring natal Sun, Mercury, and Mars and a Sun Mars conjunction in the 12th house.  I think he would approve of this linkage. It is cool to note that there is a Bowie asteroid 342843, which sits between my natal sun and Neptune. It is closely conjunct both of them , which surprised and delighted me. David Bowie has been a huge influence on me since my early teens and the recent discovery of his asteroid is lovely validation of my affinity with his essence.

Sludge, quicksand, delusion, subtle innuendo, loss, impostor, stranger, aimlessly wandering, illusion, dreams ~ all trés Neptune.

So here is a semi-random sampling of some of my favorite Bowie performances to accompany us on the hero’s journey across the bridge towards higher consciousness, with a side order of sludge for good measure.

Emerging frequencies

Here’s a gift to commemorate the double elevens  1111:

a bonus post!  2 posts in one day, enjoy!

Have you heard? Neptune will be moving direct on November 16th. We have had little forward movement in this Year of the Horse, but perhaps with Mercury leaving its shadow and Mars, Saturn, and Neptune humming along, we may experience more clarity of action, thought, purpose, and vision.  At least for a little while.

Neptune is my go-to planet. It is home. I have a stellium that includes  Neptune conjunct Sun conjunct Mercury and Pisces intercepts my 1st house. My south node is in Pisces. Neptune squares my Ascendant and trines my Mars.  Get the picture? Read Liz Greene’s sumptuous book on Neptune if you long to swim among the sea nymphs for an extended stay ( link provided at end of post).

In honor of the pending Neptune station, I am presenting the collaborative artwork project introduced on Fill in the Blanks, Literally. I invited readers to finish the drawing  I began while on retreat in 2005. The energies of 2005 and 2014 are reunited in the NOW. This was a very enlightening time for me and my art was one method I used to bring forth my inner mystic. Thanks to Sue Dreamwalker and Sarah of Seize One Day for participating and bringing their unique love and brilliance to life. You both raised the vibrations of my unfinished dream by joining forces and creating exciting, new dreams. I honestly do not remember if I had an actual intention for my original drawing.  It does not matter now. A treasure chest brimming with symbols have made their presence known and are summoning us now: a mermaid, DNA strands, squirrel, sea anemone, crab, spirals, pin wheel, seahorse, shark, arrow, caterpillar, fish, waves, triangles,  and more. What has evolved in the present moment is a divine partnership of the ethereal and sublime ~ slightly elusive inner – worlds; out of focus and yet, with a stroke of grace, clear as a bell. We are so much more than the sum of our parts. Neptune leads us by blurring the edges between fantasy and reality. Which is which anyway?

Neptune requires no words.

It seeks an oceanic refuge, an effortless floating and blending of energies,

delightful e-merging of the IAM.

Let the art on this page commune with the artist within you.

Welcome to the depths of your being ..
