FIONA EDGAR: “Neptune Retrograde Will Bring Us A Deception-Filled Summer”

“It’s important to read through the lines and rely on intuition rather than the words of others around us or the media. During this period it’s vital that we allow ourselves to know and fully experience the truth, no matter how ugly it is, than to be comforted by lies.”

Neptune starts its retrograde journey tomorrow on June 21st — the summer solstice — at 18° Pisces and will appear to travel backward through the skies until the 27th of November, where it will turn direct at 15°. The retrograde is an optical illusion but its energetic effects are very real and affect us profoundly on a spiritual level.

The chart for the retrograde features a square between Jupiter and Neptune which increases the risk of confusion, illusion and deception and making important decisions may feel difficult. On the positive side, Saturn in sextile to Neptune will help us to see the truth and we’ll be rewarded for acting accordingly and not buying into any fantasies. Neptune retrograde acts as a doorway to real spiritual and emotional progress as long as we use self-awareness and remain open to identifying and working on our flaws, rather than pretending that they don’t exist or blaming others for our problems. Above anything else, remaining moral and doing the right thing will bring us the best results, even though it may seem like the more challenging option.

During this transit we’re being given the opportunity to see our lives more clearly, letting go of any fantasies and illusions and to live in truth, bringing healing to our relationships and any wounds from the past that have continued to cause confusion. This is a good time to conquer any addictions such as smoking, alcohol and drugs and dissolve the more negative Neptunian traits such as embellishing the truth or playing the victim.

Some of the lessons of this retrograde may involve dealing with situations that call for us to use discernment and we should avoid starting relationships or getting tangled up in situations that are based on lies or deception as these will cause loss and pain later on. It’s important to read through the lines and rely on intuition rather than the words of others around us or the media. During this period it’s vital that we allow ourselves to know and fully experience the truth, no matter how ugly it is, than to be comforted by lies. Regular meditation is a tool that will help us over the next few months as it’s much easier to live with honor and truth when we’re in touch with our own spirits. It’s almost impossible to fool someone who has developed their intuition so we should make working on this a priority.

The energies of this transit will help us to focus and make better choices and it’s a good time to take a look back at our lives and identify any situations where we created karma due to making the wrong decisions that had a negative impact on other people, or by doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. When we find ourselves in the same repeating situation with different people, maybe it’s time to figure out why we’re allowing them into our lives, or how we can change the cycle and hack reality. This is something that can easily be identified by our birth charts.

Working with the highest frequencies of Neptune retrograde will allow us to gain a more clear understanding of our hopes and dreams for the future and the universe will support us in making those dreams a reality. We may find the tools to build something that once seemed impossible and we may have an epiphany about issues that have been bothering us for the last few months.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “The Body Is A Human Space Suit For Your Soul”

We are souls wearing human space suits.

We are not going to die when our body does not exist anymore, our souls will keep being alive, just like the souls of everyone else. Every one of lives in order to experience such density and reality; every one of us is on some adventure or journey.

Every person has his or her destinies. There are the ones who are going be aware of the reality, while there are the others that are not.

We are all awake; our souls are here for help, together with a lot of other souls. The purpose of every person here is to help in saving humanity from dark times which descended on every one of us. We are also here to offer help to the ones who want to be awake.

We have to remember that we are all one, so hurting others means hurting ourselves, or judging other people means that we judge ourselves too. We can see in other people what is there in our hearts, but not simply in theirs. For example, when we practice understanding and love, we are going to receive the same back.

Our life is tough and challenging; it drains us or even takes away the empathy and humanity within us. Every one of us comes from birth, or every one of us is conditioned to fear of others and of ourselves too, and we are all crushed or lose sight of our real selves. The self-esteem within us will also diminish; the decisions we make will come from some miserable place.

Moreover, we are controlled and manipulated from birth. The true power within us is taken away and hidden. We will not be able to be our real selves ever, and we will keep these selves, and also our feelings hidden, or locked away, being afraid to represent ourselves differently or stand out, or speak out, and even say our feelings or being afraid to listen to our own hearts.

We eat contaminated foods, drink contaminated water, get injected with some poisonous substances or get sprayed with certain chemicals, and we take dangerous medicine. In fact, all of this will keep us under control and enslaved, because those that are ill are much easily controlled than those that are healthy.

However, we may still be alive and find the love deep inside our hearts. Also, darkness is probably very afraid as it uses all those methods in order to subdue us and keep us down or under its control.

The darkness also brainwashes people with movies, TV shows, news programmes, newspapers and magazines, books, or something else, but people will discover the truth despite all.

It is afraid that people are going to discover the truth, so it stands in every corner, cowering and frightened.

It was smart for some time, but its end came as we started shining our lights, shining through it and lighting up the souls, our planet and also our universe for everyone to see.

Truth is simply the truth, and nothing has the ability to change it, nothing may get on its way or hide it. It is going to shine brighter above every life and untruth. And finally, the truth is always going to be the winner. It is how it is.

And finally, the darkness is aware of this, but it still tries to hide everything from us.

It will try to cause us damage and destroy us. We can feel the coming of the day. We can see the shining of the light, and we can see the changing of the energy. This will be our time of shining.
