Dear Friend and Reader:

The Sun entered Sagittarius Saturday morning, followed immediately by the New Moon in that sign. With this, we leave behind the Sun in Scorpio cycle, and enter new and very different territory.

Planet Waves
"Underwater Dreaming," found on the surprisingly intuitive and interesting astrology discussion board at The reader who submitted the image associated it with Sun square Neptune.
Remember that two classical planets remain in Scorpio, Mercury and Saturn, a reminder that we haven't left this energy completely in the past, though really, we never do. Scorpio is one of the most pervasive energies of them all -- representing such facts of life as sex, death, secrets and taxes. We are always dealing with it in some way.

Mercury conjunct Saturn is encouraging deep thinking and putting the brakes on what might be a highway speed flyaway of Sun in Sagittarius -- particularly square Neptune, as it currently is. And that is what I'm here to tell you about this week.

Because Neptune is in early Pisces, the Sun in Sagittarius will be square Neptune. Anything square Neptune is slippery, and with the Sun, the bigger they are the more slippery the floor. Neptune squares (and oppositions, and sometimes conjunctions) urge caution, awareness and the gathering of facts. They especially urge keeping a grip on your own idealism and ungrounded expectations.

Sun square Neptune is in effect through the week, and exact late Wednesday. It then trails off slowly, though the effects are still there, though diminishing. The upshot, from a timing standpoint, is don't rush into any commitment just to get it out of the way before Thanksgiving.

To the contrary, I suggest you pause and wait as long as you can, and make any 'final' commitments later in the week or early next week. The reason for this is that you want to give the Sun-Neptune square time to reveal what it has to say. Spend your time flushing information out of the pipes. Make a focused effort to prove AND disprove your theories, especially disprove. The tendency of Sun-Neptune is to believe, whether something is true or not.

Listen to your intuition and as this aspect happens, and begins to separate, put together your factual information with your intuitive information and cross-check between them. Real meaning will come out of a mix of the two different factors -- especially the places they seem to conflict.

Consider this: what we think of as "meaning" is the result of a pattern created by two different factors in the environment.
