Neptune Retrograde 2021

Neptune Retrograde

Neptune is the Spiritual Planet

Neptune will be retrograding in the changeable watery sign of Pisces enhancing both spirituality and delusions. On an inner level, there is a great deal of psychological and spiritual transformation. You may experience new spiritual dimensions, and come into contact with hidden spiritual gifts during this time.

Neptune spends approximately 23 weeks per year in retrograde. There is also a ‘shadow period’ commencing a few months before and after this time. Neptune has affinity with the feminine yin energy. When she’s retrograde, delusions and illusion may occur more often than usual. Logical thinking may be particularly difficult, and judgement doesn’t seem as clear cut as usual.

Neptune is the 2nd transpersonal planet which means it relates not only to individuals but also to large collectives of people, for example countries.

Be Grounded in Physical Reality

Neptune retrograde may also bring up issues from past lives and other universal dimensions. You may have always known that you are ‘different’ to others and this time proves it! Lead a balanced life by practising being grounded in this physical reality rather than letting your mind go off too much into other dimensions. Try to stay present with everyday reality rather than using escapism tactics such as alcohol, drugs or other addictions. You could be feeling rather ‘foggy’ or experience a feeling of boundaries dissolving between you and others. You might not be sure of where you begin and where you end, especially in relationships. Stick to your own knitting and allow others the same opportunity.

Spiritual Wounds May Surface

During Neptune Retrograde, you may have spiritual wounds surface from the past that will need to be understood and healed. Painful feelings about past situations or past incarnations could come flooding back into your mind now, affecting your self esteem and confidence. You may be feeling like a victim in some way, if so – it’s time now to deal with it. It’s all going to be ok, cry if you need to. Write your feelings down into a journal and do a personal ritual where you release the past and forgive yourself and others who hurt you.

You may be lacking in energy and motivation, feeling sorry for yourself or just plain ‘flat as a tack’. Watch your health and look after your general wellbeing, take care especially with viruses. Neptune is associated with viruses and ill health. Take plenty of long warm baths, have massages and spend time in silent contemplation. It’s a time for being rather than doing.

Grow Your Spirituality

It’s also a great time for spiritual self-development. Check out some self-help books, astrology, yoga or learn astrology. Your psychic abilities could become stronger during this time, especially the ‘clairs’ such as clairvoyance (clear sight), clairaudience (clear hearing) and clairsentience (clear feeling). Rely on your intuition, especially if it’s hard to think clearly now.

All planetary retrogrades give us the opportunity to review, reflect and reassess different areas of our lives. You can do that now as you grow spiritually!
