Mars-Neptune Conjunction

Mars-Neptune Conjunction - Idealistic Dreams

"Adjust the tuning, try a new translation"

The week provides quite a mixed bag as we begin to seek the lessons of insight promised by last week's Gemini New Moon. The challenge is to balance practical approaches with overly idealistic dreams, impractical solutions, as well as the continuing desire for something exciting. Venus backs off a bit from the extra long square to Neptune and we may be hoping for more clarity than we actually get. Mars is approaching Neptune in Pisces. The Mars-Neptune conjunction has the potential to build unrealistic expectations. As Venus backs off the square to Neptune, it will square Mars and produce significant relationship disruptions which are wrapped tightly with the unrealistic expectations of the forming Mars-Neptune conjunction. Nonetheless, if we can maintain our balance as well as some degree of self-discipline, we can ease these challenges. Of course, our goals, dreams, and expectations are important and we don't need to block them off through some kind of enforced realism. However, they aren't likely to simply materialize in the blink of an eye. No matter what our dreams promise, we must always begin where we are — the essential element of any practical approach to moving towards our goals. Skills must be learned, obstacles removed, ground cleared. Ultimately, it is our own impatience with the process that is the biggest threat to our dreams — not external forces, circumstances, or other people. As well, we must first recognize and accept where we are right now — ignoring where we (or others) think we should be. Idealism and expectations have their place but we can't ignore 'the facts on the ground'. Perhaps the most important lesson that we can learn this week is that our frustrations, impatience, and disappointments are more about what is happening on the inside than about any external challenges or struggles. We may feel pressure from others without recognizing that it is, in fact, an indication of their insecurity rather than any significant judgment of our own effort

Energy is high on Sunday. We tend to focus on establishing some sense of security and protection — especially once the Moon arrives in Cancer late in the afternoon. Decisiveness feeds a holding power to maintain security on Monday. There is a growing awareness of what is real vs. what is illusion. We begin to see some additional options open up on Tuesday. Perspectives are expanding and something like a practical plan of action begins to develop. However, the challenges may seem daunting. Determination and 'grit' begin to show real results on Wednesday. New leadership skills are displayed. The Moon is VOC all day Thursday and Mercury enters moody Cancer. Patience with others is increasingly unsteady. Leadership takes a temporary 'hit'. There is a significant round of chaos on Friday and details seem quite hard to come by. Information is sporadic and lacks clarity. Self-discipline is key on Saturday. We will do well to review our plans and consider further options rather than be goaded into unwise actions.
