• Inflated Expectations

Neptune Opposition Natal Jupiter

"I let go of expectations and false hopes, trusting that success will come from embracing the unknown."

Transit Aspects

Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation

Inflated expectations, excessive and impractical idealism are among some of the dangers of the Transit of Neptune Opposition Jupiter. You may feel tremendously lucky and your own self confidence can be so high that you feel as if nothing can stop you. But any form of speculation or risk taking, such as gambling, is extremely risky and should be avoided during this time. It is just too easy to become arrogant and believe that you will win, when in fact the reality is, it is not true.
On a positive note, this cycle can bring a vision of the future that allows you to see ahead and to anticipate. For that vision to be accurate you must let go of any expectations and false hopes. Wishing likely won't get what you want and seeking to inflate yourself and others probably brings you something other than you imagined. Trust is needed for success now. If you are careful by nature, this period may expose your blind spots, and situations or individuals may take advantage of vulnerabilities, forcing you to spend energy and resources that you ordinarily would save.
No matter what your inclination, there typically is a loosening that occurs during this period, that makes it difficult to maintain control in certain areas. A firm grip, however, is usually undesirable. Progress typically comes from letting go rather than from holding back. The key to making it work for and not against you is clearly seeing where you can give freely and in your best interest.
