On June 11, the Sun will move into a square or 90 degree alignment with Neptune, the planet of illusions, dreams, and higher consciousness.
While the Sun Squares Neptune typically twice a year, June’s alignment comes in between two potent Eclipses and in the midst of many retrogrades.
Neptune energy is watery, soft, and creative. It helps us to get out of our rational mind and into a place of dreams.
Neptune guides us to think outside of what we can see with our five senses, and reminds us that there is so much more to life than just the tangible.
Neptune is also the planet associated with higher consciousness and realms of unconditional love.
It carries beautiful energy that reminds us that we are more than just a body, that we are a soul on a journey that goes beyond this lifetime.
Neptune helps us to see that time is an illusion, and life is just a folding and unfolding of moments that have no beginning or ending.
This dreamy energy is beautiful for intuitive work, creative work, and for exploring deeper states of consciousness, however, it is not the best for making logical, practical decisions.
While Neptune covers us in this dreamy, beautiful veil it can also cloud our judgment and make it harder for us to see with clarity.
Neptune’s energy does not favor making concrete decisions. It doesn’t want to pass judgement, it can’t commit to this or that, for all is an illusion and nothing is as it seems.
While this line of thinking has its place, it can sometimes be challenging to live from this state as we navigate the physical world.
We need to be able to take into consideration the tangible, and that is what becomes difficult when Neptune’s energy is strong.
Hold off on making concrete decisions on this day. Hold off from passing judgments too, because with Neptune’s presence, not all information is revealed.
Neptune’s energy is sometimes like walking through the dark. You have to tread slowly, you have to move with caution, for if you don’t, you may lose your way.
Along with all the retrogrades and Eclipse energy in the air too, it will be important this week to really trust your intuition. If something feels off, if something is not sitting well, this is really the time to listen.
With Neptune’s veil blanketing things this week, it may be harder to see the truth and easier to be deceived, so don’t hesitate to pause and wait until more clarity arrives.
Neptune’s energy can also trigger a desire to escape from reality and to disconnect from this earthly dimension. This includes doing things like meditation or binge-watching movies, but it can also include turning to drugs and alcohol. Be mindful of this, and reach out for support if you are struggling.
Overall, use the energy of this week to stretch your intuition, to work on those creative projects, and to tap into the love that you are.
Spend time meditating and connecting with your spirit body. Give your soul a chance to speak and ask it what it needs. Spend time cleansing and nourishing it.
This energy will be felt throughout the week and won’t happen again until December 9, 2020.
Here is a short ritual you can do under this Neptunian energy:
Neptune Shower Ritual
As you soap yourself in the shower, repeat the following mantra- “I cleanse myself so I may feel light, peaceful and at ease.” Keep repeating this mantra as you scrub your body all over.
As you rinse off the soap, imagine all of the negative energy or energy that is no longer yours to keep going down the drain.
Next, take your hand and make a flicking motion around the entire outside of your body, cleansing away any final lingering energy.
Stand under the water one more time, close your eyes and visualize the water forming a protective golden white light all around your body. See the white light in your minds eye and take three deep breaths before opening your eyes.
