I am 42 years old, and for the last two years I have felt vague and misty in the head. Like my thoughts just couldn’t process fast enough, and the mental work I used to do with ease was suddenly laborious. I honestly didn’t know what was wrong with me.
I asked my friends if they had experienced anything similar, and to my surprise, everyone started to share that yes, they had felt similar things at a similar age – both men and women! However, they each attributed their problems to various things in life, so, in the spirit of research and study, I compiled a little list of their suggestions or experiences, and began to tick off weather they applied to me or not….. this is what I found:
Hmmmm….. I was still none the wiser about this frustrating lack of mental clarity.
And then one day I listened to a webinar about Neptune.
Cha-ching! The penny dropped.
Since 2011, Neptune has been transiting my first house. Two years ago it began to hit my ascendant degree, and has done so back and forth over and over for the whole 2 years (and will do so for a little while longer still…)
Ah ha! Neptunian lack of clarity. Neptunian mistiness. Neptunian dreaminess. No wonder I have been struggling! Not only was it transiting my ascendant (a very important chart component), but, I knew it was also 90 degrees from where it had been when I was born 42 years ago – right on my mid heaven, a very strong point for Neptune! I was in my Neptune square season at the same time as it was transiting over my ascendant. Boom!
The Neptune square happens for everyone at around 41-42 years of age. It is part of the 'mid-life crisis' cycles that everyone experiences - some in a harsher way than others. If the Neptune influence is strong with you, you will find yourself growing a little 'cluncky in the head', your thought processes slowing, your perception of reality becoming somewhat confused and obscured. You may question the purpose of your life, and everything you have accomplished up to this point may feel worthless ( not a pleasant process!)
Neptune transits are the antidote to clarity! In a Neptune cycle, not knowing, not having all the answers, feeling confused, is exactly the intent! Give yourself permission to be empty, to not know anything, to feel the confusion of a hard Neptune transit as this creates space for new things to come flooding in. Things that Neptune has been waiting to manifest for you - waiting your whole lifetime in some cases. Confused about your job? This transit could usher in the change that takes you to your life purpose. Sick of the materialism of your life? This transit might see you pack up and head for the nearest ashram. Allowing the confusion to do what it wills in your life is really the only true way to handle a Neptune square.... don't fight it - go with the flow... even if it means heading off to a Balinese compound until it passes!
I’m sure my friends were all spot on with their experiences, and I wouldn’t begin to suggest that brain fogginess was always the result of Neptune transits and squares, but for me as quite a Neptunian person, this was undoubtedly the cause. I cant believe the relief this has given me, just knowing it is a season I am going through, that it will pass and has it’s divine purpose. Neptune season - it’s all about learning to let go and let God, and that’s something I am quite prepared to do right now!
