Neptune Retrograde 2020

Neptune stationed retrograde today joining Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in their backward dance.

Neptune, you may recall from previous posts rules invisible things like viruses and infection so as Neptune begins the process of retracing his steps through watery Pisces we are reminded that the crowned virus is still very much with us and that those of us who choose to ignore this fact are only deceiving ourselves. Neptune likes to distort and confuse so while you should definitely continue to wear a mask and abide by the rules, you should also be aware that Neptune does agitate the imagination. And, an overactive imagination can result in hypochondriasis.

Most of us are burdened with chronic exhaustion and nervous tension. Neptune retrograde is the perfect time to ground ourselves and recalibrate. Here are a few ideas on how to create a mini-retreat at home:

  • Claim a space in your home as your sacred space for at least an hour each day. Throw some cushions on the floor or a yoga mat/rug.

  • Burn some incense. Light a candle.

  • Repeat a favourite mantra.

  • Read a poem or favourite passage from a holy book.
