something about Neptunitis, Escapology, and banishing crap…


The Moon is now in Pisces and nestled close to Neptune. I suspect sweet nothings are being whispered.

The Moon in Pisces has a couple of meanings this month.

Sure it’s the usual escape and daydream fest that it usually is. I’ll give the usual warnings about the effects of Neptunitis on the brain (and on productivity). I’ll give the usual warnings about escapology (yes, it is a word- Robbie Williams named an album after it, so that makes it real).

Given that it’s the last sign before a New Moon, I’ll even send the usual comments around finishing up and banishing crap that you don’t want to bring with you into the next cycle.

But I wouldn’t be doing any of you a favour if I didn’t say that this is probably the most important balsamic phase of the year. Balsamic- dark and thick and viscous- just like the vinegar.

On Wednesday we have the first New Moon of the astrological year.

That’s such an important statement that it gets its own paragraph. I’ll write more about it later.

This means that over the next few days the crap you should be banishing is the crap that you don’t want to be moving into the next 12 months with. This is New Beginnings stuff…with capital letters.

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling it.

It could be that with the Sun, Venus and Mars all hovering on my natal Venus (I wrote about that yesterday and here) I’m feeling that I’m at the starting blocks and the gun is in the air and I’m thinking hurry up already.

It is, however, important that we do slow, just a little, over the next few days and take the time to release the old and imagine the new. All the creative power in Aries is there at your disposal. Dream your vision into life, so to speak, and start the new year with a mighty bang.
