Neptune turns station / retrograde
Mon May 13th, 2002 at 7.10 am cdt
[at 10 deg 59' Aquarius]


Neptune goes retrograde / station today, and will be
retrograde through October 20th, 2002. Neptune
retrograde periods signifies a cycle when boundaries
are dissolved and fixed opinions are questioned, and
empathy is heightened. Neptune is also the planet
of illusion, and many could be taken advantage of
by those trying to "save" them from themselves.

Neptune is also the planet of illusion, and many
could spend the retrograde period undergoing a
gradual dissolution of previously held attitudes
or perceptions, breaking down internal barriers to
higher awareness regarding issues that are ruled
by the house it's transiting.Those with strong
planets around 9 degrees of fixed signs [Taurus,
Leo, Scorpio & Aquarius] may be especially affected
by Neptune's illusory influence.

Look at your personal birth chart; wherever 10 deg 59'
Aquarius falls in your chart will be the house where
you can break through illusions and fine-tune your
vision. Neptune stays in each sign for approx. 14
years, so the issues of this house will be a long-
term theme for years to come.
