Neptune opposite North Node: dreams pull you back?


It’s all too easy to get lost in your dreams when Neptune in its own sign Pisces activates the South Node of the Moon, that astrologically symbolizes the past, as in what went before, in this life and the past lives, or parallel lives, if you choose to look at the stuff in your unconscious that way. In all cases, it affects all us, whether we like it or not.

There can be good things in the past, of course, as well as the heavy, bad karma we easily focus on.

Neptune here brings gifts of unbounded imagination, rich dreaming, glamour, hope, spirituality, artistic gifts, music, dance…

But it can also bring illusion, deception, not seeing things as they are, glamorizing and making excuses for the wrong things and wrong people, escapism in all its forms including drugs and alcohol, and on.

Neptune can take away the focus on the North Node that symbolizes the qualities we’re to develop in order to advance our lives spiritually at least.

With the North Node in Virgo, developing the opposite of Neptunian/Piscean gifts and challenges is called for: hard work, sticking to a method, analysis, demanding tangible proof and results, order, discipline,  routine…

It can be hard to mix the two but it can be done. You can mix your intuitive solutions with practical application. After all, it was Einstein who said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” He did imagine a lot, but also brought all that dreaming into the practical world.
