This morning, the planet Neptune turns direct after being retrograde since June 25. The retrograde began and ended in the sign of Pisces, which means it has been a time when the imagination went wild and took over logic.
The inability to find the truth and resolve matters has been hard because our intuition hasn’t been shedding light on the real facts. Innate sixth sense and clairvoyance have been off since June, and now it’s crashing back down to reality. When this happens, we can expect that matters will be exposed in ways that might shock and rock us to the core, mostly because we don’t see it coming.
Another element of this transit is the need to lean into one’s spirituality. This could be a time of recommitting to one’s religious beliefs. When Neptune turns direct in Pisces, we can feel a fanatical pull to align with a religious or philosophical call (most of the meaning behind it might be confusing to us, but the fundamentals of it relate to our views and beliefs). Make sure that the beliefs are in line with your ideology before you jump in.
We are now awakening from a dream, and we realize it could be scary. Proceed with caution and care over the next few weeks.
Neptune direct encourages us to double down on our idealism. We may begin to see a turn towards making use of our intellect to further what our intuition is telling us is possible. While this is a powerful insight, not everyone will fully grasp the potential. There are distractions and aggressive opinions coming from all directions. We find a better environment to communicate our ideas to others, helping us to tie our idealistic ambitions to a cooperative framework. However, there is still a lack of structure and few guidelines. In this environment, we may find our goals shifting suddenly.

With Moon in Sagittarius you have an optimistic approach to life and you believe that things will get better even if you get into trouble.
DEC 10: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN PISCES: Moon in Pisces has the greatest sensitivity and perceptiveness of surroundings. You can experience feelings of insecurity, be passive and only wait and see what happens in your life. If you engage in creative or spiritual search, you will benefit from great imagination of Pisces.
DEC 19: FULL MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
DEC 27: LAST QUARTER MOON IN LIBRA: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things “nice” rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
JAN 2: NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN: You might have a strong need for being useful to the society and you look for justification in the outside world. You may underestimate what you want from yourself and for yourself. Shyness may be accompanied by resentment of the fact that others ignore you. Do not seek approval from the outside, it will not help you get rid of your doubt and it is harmful to you. You have to trust your inner values.
JAN 9: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN ARIES: The feeling of uncertainty can make you solve problems faster then is natural. Do not rush as if there was a deadline. Try to slow down so that you can decide what you want to do and proceed at your own comfortable pace.
JAN 17: FULL MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter.

JAN 25: LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
Are you sticking your neck out too far, reaching too high instead of looking around you to see conditions on the ground? Your devotion to co-creating something new is admirable, but Giraffe Spirit is showing up to remind you that you have to look at the whole picture, not just those tasty leaves at the top of the tree.
Perspective is necessary now, and that means checking in with what is going on around you and at your feet. Or perhaps you are you ruminating over the worries of the world instead of paying attention to what you can do right now, where you are, to bring about the changes you would like to see. Align with your highest good, and know that while perspective is important, transformation begins where you are.
Do not get so far up in the clouds thinking about all the big problems that you lose perspective and forget to do your part, however small it may be, to start enacting change—for transformation begins with you.
