if neptune is an ascending energy

and saturn is a grounding energy 

then we walk through the world lightly treading between earth and heaven. 

is this not the way to be? 

borrowing spiritual inspiration from the divine and transmuting that language into something tangible for us to use down here. yea boo lets do it. 

too much dreaminess and you’re a joke

too much reality and you’re a wet blanket 

the goal is to be sturdy with an expanded view.

the final of a series of 3 contacts between saturn and neptune culminates today. this will have been experienced differently for everyone. you can think of it as a 3 stage wake up call. 

(november 2015) the first being an idea. a wild one. maybe one that is being lived that is not aware of consequence. or a bout of inspiration that won’t shut up. how bout disillusionment with the current reality? 

(june 2016) the second, calling attention to that same feeling. where is the effort for that dream? coming out of a depression or nah? 

 the third, today. how are you experiencing the compromise between the grind of saturn and the fantasy of neptune? here’s my story:

the timing of the saturn/neptune square from august of 2015-september 2016 has fit perfectly into my life in the strangest way. i had a project that i wanted to complete, amongst other things going on, was my main goal for the year. but the project began as merely a whisper of a dream that i had no idea how to complete. i was going through a lot of changes this year based within figuring out a location and experiencing some dark things (saturn return blah). the second saturn/neptune contact in june had me really confused, but also called to attention that the mundane things that i was caught up with had nothing to do with my overarching vision! wtf. like i woke up from a weird haze.

im a sensy emotionally receptive person, it comes in handy with astrology and connecting to people in a real way.

a big milestone within my spiritual path is when i had my heart chakra blown wide open 3 years ago on a lunar eclipse. that moment i felt what its like to be completely enamoured, with life and even true subjectivity of reality. (NEPTUNE) and in contrast i have experienced some heavy realities this year that have challenged my relationship to my spirituality and world view. i also know too, what it is like to have a contracted heart. to be beaten down by the severities of work, circumstance, life lessons. (SATURN) 

finding a sweet spot between these two perspectives has been what I’ve worked through during these saturn/neptune squares

-having reality shook up in such a way that it is difficult to hold onto ideals

-adhering to either too much idealism or being bogged down by life

keyword in this saturn/neptune aspect is challenge.

and we all are going through this on a collective level, cmon have you seen the news? presidential election? and who would rather check the f out and play pokemon go? 

our ideals are highlighted. we love them, we hold them up and love to be in communion with them.   

these saturn neptune squares have challenged us in a way that through experiencing the garbage of what our reality can possibly be, we are like oh hell no, not doing that again. boy bye! 

today, i finally completed a goal that began as a whisper. nothing more than a fantasy. but not without the grunts of saturn making me feel shame for watching baby animal memes for hours instead of placing honest grueling efforts into my work. and not without the feeling of disillusionment that maybe what i desire is some horrible childish fantasy.
