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

Neptune Square Natal Neptune


Neptune transiting square your natal Neptune often coincides with a mid-life crisis of sorts and often occurs around the age of 42. You are more likely to question your life, what you have been doing and are more likely to make drastic changes to areas in your life that are no longer relevant to you. Your attitude can shift so that you see the world differently even though it is the same. Confusion can arise at this time because you often see things as they appear rather than how they really are.
A challenge now is to distinguish clearly between fact and fiction. Otherwise you can get lost or possibly feel victimized by misguided faith. Sensitivity now is often acute, and you are receptive to a host of influences which you may have problems separating. Making choices often raises doubts, since seeing clearly is not a given here. Avoiding, as well as implementing important decisions can sometimes entrap you in complexities that seem to have no solution. Often it is better to delay certain commitments until this period is over or until you reach an unambiguous position.
It would be of great benefit to you if you could discuss your current situation with someone you can trust, as to gain a more clearly perspective on your current situation. It’s a good idea to scrutinize your life style and situation, and re-evaluate areas of your life such as your career, love life and life direction, but resist the temptation to make any major decisions until the transit is over, as your mind is not working very clearly, and it is easier to make the wrong decision. Rather than being apprehensive, which only increases the probability of situations going awry, you can practice acceptance of all that occurs, all that you have, and all that you lack. Although you may display this as resignation, it can manifest itself as a compassion which is more dynamic, and implies a recognition that unity exists, despite appearances to the contrary.
