Moon Square Neptune
The main challenge facing you with the square aspect is that of discrimination between reality and unreality, between fact and fiction, and the consequences of confusion when these are not correctly perceived and established within consciousness. Volatile and tidal emotions and feelings are often intertwined with your imagination so that your perceptions are clouded by personal bias and fantasies. Attempts to warp realities, especially those concerning others, are never welcomed and are a source of conflict within relationships. Insisting that you are right - even against the recall of several others - will eventually generate antagonism, as no-one enjoys having their reality and memory threatened by others, even if they are family members. You often feel uncomfortable with your feelings and emotions as they are not easily assimilated and integrated by you and being liable to moods you find it difficult to feel centered in any stable emotional pattern of responses to people and life. There may have been some emotionally based difficulties in your parental relationships, especially to your mother, where emotional needs were not satisfied or where you imagine failings to have occurred. Changes can be successfully made by working with those intrinsic assets which you may have blocked so far, or whose presence you may have denied, rather than acknowledging them as gifts. Imagination is present; this can be used in positive ways. What you need to do is to build positive images of a 'new you' who has less of a chip on your heart, and who is prepared to change into a more creative and loving person. Understanding your own nature is the first step towards being tolerant of others' weaknesses and strengths, so some form of inner psychological inquiry is required. Releasing pent-up emotional tension is essential, and should be carefully done, probably with the aid of trained counselors or psychotherapists, because too great and sudden an emotional explosion of pressures may be more damaging than healing. Types of body work, manipulation and massage could possibly be additionally beneficial too. Be more open and honest in relationships concerning any feelings of confusion; try not to let them fester inside. Organize your life more consciously. Work with others, so that you realize that all need support and guidance at times in their lives from others who may be perceptive on a clearer level. Believe in your own potential and determine to allow it access into your life. In so doing, you can transform the negative aspects of the square into positive assets. Preferably work with more down-to-earth schools of therapy, which can then ground you better, rather than following a natural tendency towards more imaginative escapism, which can result in involvement with any religious / mystical cults that aim to fly in holy skies of grandeur and hallucinations rather than experience real life.
