Ann Kreilkamp ~ Mercury Conjuncts Neptune in Pisces: SO WHAT IS REAL?

Today’s post comes from friend, permaculture village pioneer and astrology mentor, Ann Kreilkamp. I’m sharing it because these themes have often surfaced during this week’s sessions and personal interactions. Combined with other planetary energies, this extra Neptune/Mercury influence can feel spacey and out of it … or it can lead you to expressing big dreams. Are they really so fanciful? Allow yourself some quiet time to journal, paint, and creatively express those dreams.

You might also find new perspectives on older intentions. Have some of your dreams already come true in ways you didn’t recognize before? Here’s Ann with much more:

Ann Kreilkamp ~ Mercury Conjuncts Neptune in Pisces: SO WHAT IS REAL?

On Monday last, when I was preparing a post on the then upcoming Spring Equinox plus Full Moon, I also looked at other configurations in the Equinox and Full Moon charts, paying attention to aspect patterns which were exact or within one degree of exactness. Thus, one of them, Neptune conjunct Mercury, escaped my view, since it was only within two degrees of exactness.

Nevertheless, as I realize now, that aspect was of tremendous importance for especially the next two weeks, since Mercury then at 18°59 Rx, stops, turns and goes forward during this time, all the while remaining within close orb of a conjunction to Neptune.

That I framed my inquiry to just include aspects within 1° of exactness is a good example of how our conceptual frames dictate just what realities we are going to find. We see what we are looking for! Which is why I always say that no map, no matter how precise or immensely framed can adequately cover (and therefore, predict and control) the territory we call “reality,” which itself is infinitely small and large, so that any single infinitesimal point, when focused upon, expands to become an infinite space. 

This way of talking is “Neptunian,” recognizing the inherent mystery that we call (even 3D!) “reality,” and that the religion of science (scientism) foolishly pretends to be able to comprehend. 

Meanwhile, back to the current Mercury/Neptune conjunction. This aspect will continue within 2° of exactness through April 6th. And, the day that it turns to go direct, March 28, it does so at 16°06 Pisces, exactly conjunct Neptune at 16°56 Pisces. In other words, the conjunction is moving closer and closer day by day until March 28, when it turns to equally gradually move out of exact conjunction.

So if you feel as if you’re immersed in the dreamtime, despite your best efforts to ignite springtime Aries action during these weeks, don’t be surprised.  Continue reading

Timothy Glenn ~ 2019: Welcome to the Reset

Today we have a special treat: Timothy Glenn’s 2019 report coming in well before the Chinese New Year! I’ve hyperlinked the earlier articles he references. It’s always fun to look back on how predictions unfolded across linear time.

Personally, I’ve been feeling Saturn in Capricorn in a major way, as Saturn’s been crossing and hovering over my Capricorn North Node. As Tim mentions, even if you don’t have any obvious Capricorn in your chart, you’re still going to feel these energies in at least some area(s) of life. Both 2019 and 2020 feature a whole bevy of potent astrological alignments. Whew! Excellent times for those who’ve diligently done their Shadow Work, and a chance to awaken for those who haven’t yet … Here’s Timothy’s report:

2019: Welcome to the Reset

by Timothy Glenn

Perhaps you feel as though a gigantic hand with its index finger extended has descended from the universe, and has pressed the reset button on Planet Earth. If so, you’re far from being alone.

From the article 2018: Welcome to the Storm:

2017: SHTF (Shit Hits the Fan)
2018: SFOOTF (Shit Flies Out of the Fan)

And now we can add:

2019: SSAO (Shit Splatters All Over)

The external structures of our world are barely beginning their transmogrification. The governmental, economic, academic, religious and scientific systems of the old Matrix will have no place in the New Earth. Useful remnants of them could find a temporary place in the planetary transition, but will diminish into mere traces as the fear-based Matrix fades away, and the love-based New Earth emerges.

This Is Your Mind on Neptune – Today’s New Moon in Gemini

As usual, Emily provides an excellent description of today’s energies. Happy New Moon!

Today’s New Moon is super-Neptunian – are you feeling it? Sleepy, spacey, weepy, overwhelmed… Honestly, I’m feeling so freakin’ lazy that I just want to refer you to (or plagiarize from) the post I wrote about last year’s Gemini New Moon, because it’s basically the same deal (well, this New Moon is a little different, but last year’s post is still worth reading or re-reading).

The New Moon (at 7 degrees Gemini) forms an exact square – 90-degree, challenging angle – to Neptune, God/Goddess of the Ocean (at 7 Pisces). The typically light, airy, intellectual, chatty, busy-busy Gemini New Moon instead takes on a Neptunian flavor – watery, deep-feeling, uber-sensitive, imaginative, inward-turning, and potentially escapist, addictive, self-pitying and victimy (shadow Neptune).

Drawing us further into the dreamtime, Neptune is also stationing – standing still in the sky before turning Retrograde on June 9. We’ll continue…

My Own Take on this Mercury Retrograde, Beginning February 6, 2014

Several people have asked me for a gloss on Ann’s and others’ articles about this potent Mercury Retrograde period, which began on February 6, 2014 at 4:44 p.m. East Coast time and officially runs through February 27th, not counting the Shadow Periods on either end. I encourage people to read or reread my earlier general tips for surviving and even thriving in Mercury Retrograde, but due to the requests for more clarity and guidance about this particular one, I will share some additional observations here.

First of all, I have a lot of Mercury in my chart. Tons. Mercury rules my Gemini Sun and my Virgo Ascendant, and I’ve got lots of key planets in Gemini, which means that I needed to learn how to turn Mercury Retrograde periods to my own advantage, or else face extreme inconvenience and even disaster for 9-12 weeks per year. Been there, done that … for awhile. No thanks! After some rough go rounds, I opted for learning how to thrive during the Rx periods, and the article linked above shares some of the most transferable ways to do that.

When examining this particular Merc Rx, the biggest factor appears to be Neptune, which rules addictions, illusions, mystical experiences, the ocean, and the sign of Pisces. Since Mercury Retrograde periods tend to build upon previous Merc Rx’s, they provide opportunities to review and revise where we found ourselves in the past few Mercury Retrograde periods. If you can’t remember those details, have a look at this chart and your calendar. Perhaps it will jog some memories. This first Merc Rx of 2014 — occurring in dreamy Neptune — will support (read: “push”) you to reevaluate areas of life in which you’ve allowed yourself to be fooled by illusions, sucked into addictions (relationships, substances, habits), or “forced” to invite inappropriate boundaries.

Anytime we find ourselves bamboozled, it’s tempting to blame the other person, the government, “the cabal” or whomever we feel perpetrated the deception. This Mercury Retrograde period will call us out as individuals who willingly participated in the lies. As individuals and as a society, we will need to accept our own responsibility in the dance of illusion, addiction and legerdemain, or else actively relegate ourselves to delusions that will — at best — prevent full satisfaction in life and — at worst — potentially result in the extermination of the human race. Yes, the stakes are high right now, and this first quarter of 2014 raises them even more.

I often recommend the website http://narcissismfree.com, both for the articles and the valuable ebooks. Kaleah does a great job explaining the sticky web of lies and illusion used by narcissists to ensnare their “victims,” and we live in an incredibly narcissistic society. I appreciate Kaleah’s work because she empowers people to see beyond the script, beyond what magicians and the Faery Realm call the “Glamour” — specters and projections that bear little resemblance to reality. In fact, the narcissistic web and “Glamour” often present the exact opposite of reality, making the ugly appear beautiful, the weak impenetrable, and the vampire generous. Throughout and following this Mercury Retrograde in Neptune, humanity will suffer exponentially greater pain for failing to pierce the Glamour. Those who do dismantle the projections will likely feel initial shock replaced by more freedom, exhilaration and possibility than they’ve ever felt before.

On a global level, I find it interesting that the Olympics fall smack dab in Mercury Retrograde. Whatever dastardly false flag plans anyone has for those Games will likely face the wrath of Murphy’s Law; however, any grand illusion presented might initially gain a worldwide following. That belief should be short lived, though, and the global backlash against what eventually reveals itself as obvious trickery might amuse a different kind of spectator. I would suggest a 30-day unplugging challenge during this Merc Rx and Shadow period. If you own a tell-LIE-vision, turn the lying thing off! If you listen to talk radio, turn it off. Ditto most Hollywood films. Without those three bastions of mass illusion for 30 days, you’ll go a long way towards reclaiming your mind.

If you know you have an active addiction to something else, then now might be a great time to review how you got into that set of circumstances in the first place. Consider upgrading any addictions you know you have. If you want to quit smoking, transmute that compulsion into exercise and/or meditation. Until humans fully heal, addictive holes remain, so it’s usually much easier to replace an addiction with a better quality habit than just trying to eliminate it.

If you, like me, like to utilize the predominant energies to amplify intentions, then get creative! Nebulous Neptune blurs boundaries, which can really help with brainstorming. If you’ve set aside a creative project, then the current energies support a fresh look and revision. If something seemingly immovable in your life or in this world upsets you, then the current energies offer optimal times for what I call Houdini-ing your way out. In order to escape illusions, it helps to know how one creates illusions. You can reverse engineer magick and Glamour as much as scientists reverse engineer technology. Deconstruct, revise, and rebuild. During Mercury Retrograde, think “re-.” Neptune gives you the most potent areas for the re-‘s: addictions, illusions, deceptions, and all things murky or lost at sea.

Haha, I just typed “see” instead of “sea,” and both meanings hold true for this period. Practice seeing with your inner eye, and you’ll find intuition expands.

[WordPress just told me I finished the initial post at 888 words, which emphasizes the infinite potential of this period, doubles the 4:44 start time of the Mercury Retrograde, and, according to Doreen Virtue:

“888 — A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you forewarning to prepare. This number sequence may mean you are winding up an emotional career or relationship phase. It also means there is light at the end of the tunnel. In addition it means, The crops are ripe. Don’t wait to pick and enjoy them. In other words, don’t procrastinate in making your move or enjoying the fruits of your labor.”

Wise words.]
