Chiron Conjunct Neptune Retrograde in Pisces. All I Can Say is: Ow.


That's not a lake. That's flooded farmland in southeastern Saskatchewan. Only one-third of the land could be seeded this spring, and you'd better believe this water (Neptune) is causing pain (Chiron) for farmers and everyone and everything who rely on them. - Photo used with permission. -

Chiron just went retrograde at 5 degrees Pisces (June 8), and this is on the heels of Neptune going retro at 0 degrees Pisces (June 3). These two bodies are conjunct, moving very slowly retrograde, and the themes are dragging at us. There's a whole lot of concentrated pain being stirred right now.

Since late May, the Sun, Mercury and Venus in Gemini have squared Neptune and then Chiron in Pisces. Talking (Gemini) about things that are as huge and as Piscean and as difficult to pin down as, say, a slow-motion devastation of the food supply, lives and bodies brought about through HAARP technology and poisonous aerosol spraying, is not easy. But it's in talking about it that we can move out of one of the most difficult aspects of Neptune: being isolated in pain.

Though it's hard to remember when Neptune and Chiron are breathing down our necks, these are issues that affect most of us. Personal effects have ties to broader forces underway, and, while the particulars may differ, no one is alone in dealing with Piscean pain and loss, whether physical, emotional or psychic.

Chronic pain and illness are also Piscean/Neptunian subjects - isolating, but widely shared, as our systems work to process and adjust to multi-layered poisons, forced, unnatural rhythms and electromagnetic overload.

The situation on the planet coupled with difficult circumstances in personal lives can move us quite easily into "overwhelm" territory right now, unless we continually work to dissipate the Neptunian fuzz and fog, keeping it in proportion when it threatens to pull us under. Part of that is staying connected (Gemini) to the loving and guiding force in your own life and to the people, animals and places that help you feel loved, connected, part of a meaningful whole.

We're getting through this together, come hell or high water - and by the looks of it, both. This is a tough point, though, to be sure - soggy, damp, mildewed, like wearing a set of sopping wet clothes through an already difficult day. Don't feel alone if you are struggling with feelings of disappointment, disillusionment, fatigue, hopelessness, isolation or despair. This is the flip side of Neptune (conjunct wounded healer Chiron), and it's one tricky bastard.

We're not dealing with issues that have easy or quick solutions. There may not be any immediate solutions apparent at all. Holding the awareness of what is going on is sometimes all we can do.

Every time I see a blue sky, it's certain that within a couple hours, there will be either chemtrails sprayed or chemtrail drift coming in from a previous spraying. Whatever they're putting in them these days is making me quite sick. And yet, I know if I talked about it to most of the people I come into contact with, they would think I was nuts. At the very least, they'd be uncomfortable.

Nature has always been one of the only things that helps me, and now the air has been poisoned so that I have to stay indoors most sunny days unless I want to risk respiratory problems, a raw throat and airway and a runny nose. And who knows what goes on under cloud cover?

I didn't know if I should write about my experience getting sick from the trails on the blog (I never really know what personal details to include here and which ones to omit), but when I wrote about it, I got a message from a friend and blog reader in California who said she had almost the exact same experience. Then I got more messages from people in widespread areas who had similar experiences.

We're not crazy (Neptune), you know? This is going on, and making the connections really helps.


- Photo sent by reader. -

Making the connections (the right ones) isn't easy right now, though. We're being hit with a few difficult aspects in succession. Zero Gemini - the point the personal planets have activated and continue to activate in square to Neptune - is now home to the fixed stars Pleiades (which recently shifted from 29 Taurus), and this is considered an unfortunate grouping.

The Gemini-Pisces square can bring chaotic communication issues, especially electronics and computers going haywire. I'm posting this from an internet cafe as my own computer is being squirrelly as all hell. This can probably be expected off and on until late June when Mars passes out of the squares to Neptune and Chiron.

Under the square aspects, a lot of information sources and connections (especially media- and social media-related) aren't actually helping, so filtering is necessary. We're looking more to the quiet ambiance between spaces for our guiding, navigational faith than to continual chitter chatter, but it's highly difficult to cut the communication cords we need to distance ourselves from with the constant connection-craving Gemini South Node.

What is still working on the Geminian front are the connections that help us to feel loved and connected - anything that dissipates the gnawing isolation that can come with not only a Neptune-Chiron conjunction in Pisces but multiple connections to Sedna, betrayed Goddess of the Sea.

Mars is currently just past a conjunction to Sedna and we're getting some quite desolate transmissions from the bottom of the ocean. Mars then moves into Gemini (moving through that conjunction to the Pleiades) and squares Neptune at zero Pisces June 22.

Jupiter has just entered Taurus, which has thrown an unflattering spotlight on all my painful Chiron in Taurus issues, resulting in a lower back that has almost completely gone out.

All this, and we have the two-month Cardinal Grand Cross in effect starting June 16 when Mercury enters Cancer.

This summer is going to be quite the ride. Get ready, get as fluid as possible, and stay connected to those you love.

Hello, thank you for your insights on chiron, neptune.

shannon said...

well, you know me, yr pal with a heap of neptunian transits, i've been feeling exactly what you write about here, mixed with a very potent anxious/anxiety/dread.
not fearful, but a gut feeling something huge is coming. the beauty of my hilltop is also skewed, a unfamiliar and disturbing energy.
yet our little town is bustling, kids graduation and parties,farmer's markets and stone fruit...disparate realities coinciding.

Watching the world events and wheather now,it should be obvious to all something is happening.But no,many still continue to prefer to sleepwalk right thru this.I and a friend began last year to make people on Kauai Island aware of what was really dripping down from the skies and causing so much repiratory illness and increased death of the elderly-yes,the obituary column in the newspaper has tripled folks.What was the response? Rage.Well I know that beneath that, lies overwhelming fear.But the feedback to one of my letters to the Editor,was a stream of over 90 angry and almost incoherent in hate responses-all anonymous on line.So bringing out the news now,is dangerous now.Time is over to educate.Stay centered.Practice love.You are such a great writer Willow.Kauai

I agree with anonymous "time is over to educate". You need to take care of yourself and your inner circle, the ones that support and love you. People are starting to feel the effects of the unstable energy that is beaming unto the planet and are starting to lose it. All that energy has a purpose and job to do whether we like it or not. Our job like you said Willow, is to stay loose and fluid. One of the things I might suggest is drastically lowering your sugar intake, gallons of water and sleep as much as you can.
So, let's all get ready for the wild ride this summer!!

Willow said...

You're very welcome, merlene.

shannon, I've also been getting the message that "it's a-coming on." The trouble, that is. The disparate realities are reaching an extreme so extreme, you just know something's going to give.

Kauai, you sure hit a nerve with that one, so you hit your mark! But yes, be careful with you and make sure to be well out of the line of fire!

I don't fully agree that the time for education is over. I think there are lots of people who would like to know this information who live outside the usual channels and have just not had an intelligent conversation about it yet. I think it's a matter of getting good information to those people while not wasting time and energy on the people who don't want to know no matter what, and that's not easy. There is a lot of hype and bad info and diversion mixed in with this stuff.

Anon, thanks for the tips.

I must say I hate wild rides. Never been a roller coaster fan at all. And this one is already making me feel like vomitting and screaming "let me the fuck off!"

I'm sure this is way TMI, but things have been so mixed up that my menstrual cycle was just shifted over a week. That made for some very extreme emotional states.

Might want to consider stocking up on sub-lingual Vitamin B-12:

stimulates RNA synthesis in nerve cells,

strengthens neurotransmitters, and increases concentration and memory,

myelin formation (the covering around the nerve cells),

protects arteries in the brain by metabolizing homocysteine,

nervous system health,
growth and development,

the production of red blood cells,

healthy digestive function, and
detoxifies cyanide from foods and tobacco smoke.

merleneshedlock said...

Vitamin B12, o.k. sounds like a good thing to do.

freeforall said...

Willow, I have a friend out west who says she is getting stuffed up and having respiratory problems, likely from all these chemicals.

Today there was a gorgeous blue sky in the evening, and I noticed it especially because there weren't any chemtrails. I guess once in a while they let us off the hook.

All of this flooding will not be good for food availability/prices during the winter. Many people I know are planting whatever they can, even in large pots.

The lunar eclispe approaches, and then the Cardinal T-square gets triggered. Interesting summer indeed!

Willow said...

I'm giving activated charcoal a whirl, also - both capsules and soap - for the chemtrail/radioactivity combo.

Side note: You have to love it when someone finds your blog by searching: Why are Scorpios assholes?

Deb said...

Ha ha @ "Why are Scorpios assholes?" Well, I know why those of us with lots of Scorpio in our charts are assholes-- because we don't tolerate douchebaggery.

Willow, I haven't been online much due to an increase in work and school assignments lately, but this entry somewhat coincides with my Tarot reading for the week. Your writing is WAY better and informed than mine, I just find it interesting that you're all discussing feeling icky, taking vitamins and other measures to protect yourselves from icky symptoms, and so forth, and that's kinda the message of the card of the week! Kinda, not completely. Just kinda. :)

Hope your back feels all better soon,
Deb

I also have been feeling something going on with my throat and lungs lately. Thought it might be from one of the blood pressure meds I am on. Now I'm not too sure. Also on June 3rd the canal behind my house breeched it's banks and flooded our entire block leaving a lot of damage in it's wake. I've lived here for 13 years and this is the first time we have had a flood of this kind. Gotta stay strong as I go about the added burden of cleaning up and throwing away a lot of belongings...................I feel that 2012 will be the year for many positive changes though if we can all just hold tight for the wild ride of 2011. Peace all, Judie

Deb - nailed it!! (RE: Scorpy assholedom)

Willow,

Am posting anon but have emailed you in the past. Libra North Node Guy.

I NEVER and I mean "NEVER" get sick and after the fukushima thing got really nasty respitory infection. was hacking phlegm for 2 weeks almost.

It started raining here on the West Coast 3-4 days after the disaster, just as the first radioactive fallout would have been hitting this area. Rain being the best way to get the radiation into people's bodies. I was like "oh yeah, I'm supossed to believe this is a coincidence? oh for gawd's sake they're not even trying to be subtle about it anymore". Of course try bringing that up to anybody and they're as you say, at best, "uncomfortable" if not rageful.

Anyhow, here ya go: 35% increase in infant mortality in 8 west coast cities since fukushima disaster if you needed statistical proof of your own intuitive/observational insights:

:-( Meanwhile, the parents have no idea what is going on because this issue is on complete media blackout.

That's the whole problem, in my mind, with people denying it/burying their heads in the sand - as long as people can't pinpoint who/what's killing them, they keep these cycles going none the wiser.

I had a feeling the reaction from the chemtrails was actually the combination of radioactivity and the chemtrail chemicals. I've never had a reaction like this to them before. Though, they do change the formulas, so I suppose that could be it.

One other note I'd like to add about staying hydrated - I do think drinking lots of water is important, but avoiding fluoride and other chemicals in tap water is also advisable. Even brands like Culligan don't remove fluoride completely (it's THAT hard to get rid of in water), but spring water is usually still a pretty good bet.
