Neptune in Retrograde: Your Reality Check

Today the 29th of June 2022, at 1:45a.m., not only is it a new Moon in Cancer (check out this weeks YouTube video on the new moon astrology here , we also have Neptune in retrograde  ready give us all a much needed mid-year ‘reality check’, or /and ‘soul growth’ we are about to come out of any delusion we are in, or gain some clarity to move forward. So, what’s the message from the universe for all of the zodiac signs and what reality check does he have in store for you personally?

What and Who is Neptune:

Neptune is one of the outer planets in astrology, and not a personal planet. He does not make up part of a person’s personality, but he controls the environment of all souls here on Earth having a human experience. This is the planet that represents hopes, dreams, goals, thinking big, and a representation of the soul’s growth. In a personal birth chart Neptune will represent, mean, and show where (the house of life) a person may experience the most ‘loss’ or ‘confusion’ in their life, however if that person can overcome this and experience the spiritual growth that Neptune represents in a person’s birth chart great things can happen in life. Generally speaking, this is the planet that is about dreaming and hoping, but also delusions that we have and where we ignore things.

Neptune in Retrograde:

A planet in retrograde we identify by the symbol (R ) next to it in a chart. When a planet is in retrograde on a day-to-day basis, it is pulling us back to a situation, person, place, or thing relevant to the area of life that planet is moving backwards in. From an Earth’s perspective it appears that the planet has travelled out as far as it can in the cosmos, and has come to a standstill, from Earth it appears to be going backwards, or moving away from us. With a planet like Neptune in retrograde, he gives us a ‘reality check’. This is because in his forward motion, when he is not in retrograde, he will or can sometimes bring delusion, or cause us to not be realistic. As soon as he retrogrades it’s a whole different story! Neptune’s retrograde is happening at a key time also, during a new Moon which is today= a new cycle, and we’ve just had the summer solstice ( northern hemisphere) or the winter one if  you are in the southern hemisphere. This represents a change of season, and moving into a new season of your life under this reality check energy, it’s about moving forward with truth, authenticity, and lifting the veil on any BS that was clouding you view. Things are about to come to light and get real!

Looking at the chart for today shared with your above,  with Neptune in regrograde  (the planet to the right that’s pink and in the 5th house) at 25 degrees into the sign of Pisces, he is forming a sextile and working in slight harmony, with Pluto (the brown planet to the left in the 3rd house at 27 degrees into Capricorn). This conversation between the planets is about ‘reality checks that bring change and transformation. Pluto is the planet of transformation and change, and Neptune is about reality checks in retrograde. What’s also interesting is that both these planets are outer planets as mentioned, so it’s about our environment that is about to clarity and what we are doing in life, also both these planets represent the soul. Soul growth from Neptune, and soul transformation and changes with Pluto. These means things changing or becoming clear for our soul’s purpose and need.
