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.
The Twelfth House
Eastern Hemisphere: self-determining Ruler: Jupiter and Neptune
Scope: Last 3rd: public and group space Mode: Cadent: digesting, connecting
Upper Hemisphere: objective, collective Axis: concrete vs. subtle serving
The Twelfth House is where we discover our blind spots, our unconscious motives, dreams, patterns; how the world-at-large affects us, what we hide or repress or ignore.
