Stuck in the idea of reviewing and processing, Bud notes that Neptune retreats are a great time to examine your dreams, open your heart, overcome pain, and relieve pain. “We are also invited to explore the ways in which we confuse or deceive ourselves and to avoid responsibility or reality (such as substance abuse, fantasy, excessive TV or other distractions),” he added.
And FYI, sometimes things get worse before they get better. As Bud explains, Neptune can exacerbate problems before retrograde problems, or increase confusion before we can find clarity. However, they can also trigger spiritual insights, intuitive awakening and expansion, he says.
So, the question is, how can we make the most of this transit? According to Bud, you will want to find out where the 25th degree of Pisces falls on your birth chart and find out which house it is in. “Changes in the 22nd to 25th degree house of Pisces will have the opportunity to think about ideas, and the insights that happened in the last seven months of Neptune’s direct motion,” he says. (For example, if this setback happens in your second House of Finance and Security, you probably use the time to plan a budget.)
“If you fail to take sufficient action on something important [while Neptune was direct]You will have the opportunity to review what happened and try again (or be ready to try again), “Bud said, adding,” Reflect on the insights gained during this time and the steps still needed for that new understanding to play in your life. “
And no matter where this retrospective falls on your chart, Bud usually advises using this Neptune retreat to deepen your spiritual connection with yourself and get ready to reveal your current dreams to the world.
