The Gifts of the Neptune: Neptune embodies the path of surrender. It teaches us to
relinquish our egocentric relationship to life, either by taking from us what we are too
attached to (or getting us to lose or mess up what we grasp), or by encouraging us to
voluntarily recognize the value of the One above all else. Once we truly align our lives to
the transcendental instead of the material, Neptune brings us into total communion with It.

The lessons Neptune has to learn: We are all still on Earth, and must learn to "Tie up our
camels" and not just "Trust in Allah". Neptune has to learn to pay attention, to speak the
truth, even if it causes upsets, to set appropriate limits, to take care of the details of life, to
translate totally here, in other words, to appreciate the gifts that life on Earth offers and not
focus on either the negatives nor trying to escape.
