Review of Steven Forrest's "The Book Of Neptune"

"If you feel as if you've lost your footing, are sinking in quicksand or adrift on a large body of water with no land in sight, there's a good chance that Neptune is involved.  If that's the case, I can't recommend this book highly enough." --Whobeda
(Ending, culmination, or shift to a new phase)
(Brings something new into your life)
Date: 9 March 2020 Date: 24 March 2020
Position: 19:37 Virgo (Strongest influence for those born ~12 August) Position: 04:12 Aries (Strongest influence for those born ~27 July)
Natural House: 2nd Natural House: 9th
Influences of the 2nd house include your income, possessions, needs, comforts, pleasures and what you value.  This house contains those things that mean the most, both physically and emotionally.  A Full Moon in this house suggests an ending, culmination, or shift to a new phase of something in this part of your life.  For example, you may decide that enjoying life is more important than working so hard just for the money.  Influences of the 9th include your philosophy of life, beliefs, expectations, religion, politics, legal matters, higher learning/academia, publishing, other cultures, long-distance travel and relocation.  A New Moon typically brings something new your way, so watch for something new to come along in one of those areas.  It's also a favorable time to initiate activity in one or more of them as well.

The Full Moon on 9 March is in Virgo. The planetary balance of the zodiac continues to be rather lopsided and will be that way for a while longer. The lunation forms an aspect pattern known as a Triangle of Potential. A Triangle of Potential involves a minimum of three with the usual interpretation that the opposition is mitigates by those in the position that forms a sextile with one planet and a trine with another. The principle is that those two typically favorable vibes help balance the opposition. So let's see what's going on with that. The primary opposition is the Full Moon which comprises the Sun in Pisces and Moon in Virgo. With the Sun conjunct Neptune, this provides additional Piscean energy which tends to be dreamy and imaginative or inclined toward fantasy, spirituality, or in some cases deception, delusions, or illusions. The Moon in Earth Sign, Virgo, which is solidly grounded and promotes practicality, details, and precision, is trying to balance those traits to help keep it from going off the deep end. In other words, you may want something that is rather unrealistic that you think you can obtain while your heart is telling you that it's not a very good bet.

This argument is being arbitrated by Jupiter in Capricorn with a little extra help from Mars and Pluto. Jupiter is not very well placed in Capricorn where his normally expansive and optimistic energy is being doused with a bucket of cold, Capricorn authority. Jupiter is thus largely operating with shackles on, but this may be the perfect combination to negotiate the Sun - Moon argument between a vision and reality. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces, so he can relate to that issue, while being immersed in an Earth Sign, he can also cooperate with the Moon in Virgo. This can therefore help find a viable solution.

Mars is in trine with the Moon, which is helpful as well. Mars in Capricorn is everything Jupiter in Capricorn is not. Mars is full of action and energy, but often lacks discipline, which Capricorn provides. This is like military school, if you will, directing that energy in a more methodical way.  Clearly this can benefit any intended action. Pluto is being trine by the Moon as well. Pluto is fairly comfortable in Capricorn where his inclination toward power and control likewise is disciplined and more controlled. He wields a lot of energy as well and can give you the passion you need to make a go of whatever is luring you in Pisces. This is a favorable cosmic balance for achieving what you want, which is most likely to relate to the house noted above for your specific sign.

Note that Mercury stations direct on that same day, but slightly later than the lunation. Nonetheless, the fact he is ready to get on track again is another good sign. If you've felt stuck lately, tired, lazy, unmotivated, etc. then hopefully this should bring that crap to an end and get things moving again. Mercury has gone back into Aquarius, an Air Sign where he is fairly comfortable as the ruler of communications. However, before long he'll be back in Pisces, which is not so good. This is the sign of a condition known as Fall for Mercury, which means that brain fog will be back. It can be good for your imagination, but not so good for anything that requires precision. All those planets Earth Signs will help, however.

Venus and Uranus are conjunct in Taurus. Venus is in dignity as ruler of that sign, making her patient, bound, and determined to get what she wants. Uranus is the planet that rules change, disruptions, rebellion, surprises, breakthroughs, flashes of brilliance, breakups, freedom, unexpected events, explosions, innovation, technology, and such as that. This is an interesting and somewhat unpredictable combination, especially since Uranus is unpredictable by nature. Venus is the natural ruler of love and money as well as what you need or find comfortable. If this is something you're seeking, then Uranus could provide some interesting energy and methodologies for attaining it. This, of course, ties in nicely with the other influences of this lunation as they relate to finding a viable path to your dreams.


The New Moon this month is 24 March, a few days after the equinox, in Aries. The lunation is semisextile Uranus in Taurus, which is a somewhat volatile combination. Uranus's influences are noted above and Aries, of course, is full of fiery energy as well. A semi-sextile usually bring annoyances or friction BUT it can also be a cloud with a silver lining because with some effort, it can often be turned to your favor.

Venus is sextile Neptune, suggesting opportunities to go after something you want or that you've been dreaming of, perhaps. Mercury is sextile Uranus which should be good for your imagination and creative problem solving. Saturn has left Capricorn after being in its home sign for a few years. As the traditional ruler of Aquarius, he's fairly comfortable there as well. His square with Uranus looks like it could put the kabosh on anything too innovative, however. Saturn in Aquarius, which is the sign that rules the 11th house of friends, groups, goals, organizations, and associations, is likely to bring discipline and structure to those areas like never before. Conventional and traditional ways of doing things will dominate. Trying to break free from established procedures is likely to hit a wall.

There's what is known as a rolling stellium in Capricorn where Jupiter, Pluto, and Mars are in a fairly tight conjunction. As noted earlier, Jupiter in this sign is restricted, but not necessarily in a bad way since otherwise he is prone to exaggeration, over-confidence, and being too optimistic. Pluto loves power and control and mars is ready to get moving on something that's been delayed. This trio could work together well, however, for getting something done. Jupiter and Pluto are being trined by Venus, which is further positive energy for going after something you want.

Generally speaking, both of these lunations have several helpful elements for moving forward.


Mercury stations direct on 9/10 March. I don't know about you, but for me this is definitely cause for celebration. While he was doing the backstroke in Pisces it was very difficult to get anything accomplished. Mercury RX is bad enough for that, but in Pisces it could turn your brain to mush. You were most likely to notice this is you're a Gemini or Virgo since Mercury is your sign ruler, likewise if your ascendant is in one of these signs. The station chart is very similar to the Full Moon, which gives those energies a little extra boost. A Full Moon typically indicates an ending, culmination, or shift to a new phase also fits nicely.

The equinox a.k.a. Aries ingress is 19/20 March, bringing a new season, i.e. spring for the Northern Hemisphere and autumn for the Southern.The chart is heavily weighted by all those planets in Capricorn, providing more shenanigans by governments and corporations. It looks like a favorable time for imaginative ventures where innovation is key. Getting what you want or need could be challenged by other obligations, however, whether they be friends and organizations vying for your time and energy, or moving so slowly it feels as if you're standing still, largely because you're not really all that sure what it is you want.
