The first thing I want to say in this post is THANK YOU. Thank you to all of you who support Aepril's Astrology, who participate in making this happen. The response to my invitation to donate each month toward supporting the weekly blogs and video continues to be just...amazing. It was not easy for m to put that out there, for all sorts of reasons. But you made me feel great about it, and very supported. Thank you.
Perhaps this my heart continuing to open under this Sun-Neptune influence that we find ourselves in the middle of. The Sun is the Heart, and Neptune is the planet that shows us that we really are all One. Or, at a low vibration, it can show us the way to the local bar! Alcohol is otherwise known as "spirits", after all, and, like other drugs, it can give us the illusory feeling of being more connected. At any rate, it is the spirit of things that we are called to focus on now. We are invited to look beyond the veil of illusion in order to become more actualized and empowered.
With the integrity-oriented Virgoan energies combined with the Neptunian powers of veil-lifting, we might get a welcome (or unwelcome) revelation of some kind---something that might poke a hole in our denial. Being human, we all have places where we tend to lean on others, enable ourselves, co-depend, feed addictions, bullshit ourselves (and others), etc. Sometimes it might not even be such a bad thing, as we might need to have some illusion in place for a time in order to cope. But I'm going to say that with these very powerful energies, the time has come for the crutch to be put aside. Open heart, disciplined mind.
Fantasy and imagination are NOT the same. Fantasy can be used recreationally, but cannot be where we spend our time regularly; it is passive, and disengages us from participating in creating reality. Imagination, on the other hand, is dynamic and active, and is a force in creation. This can be a time of great magick. It's your choice if you are going to float around in this ocean of life as a victim, or if you are going to take the wheel. (Pssst...go ahead, Captain!)
