Have you been having vivid dreams? Some so intense you could call them visions? The Sun’s approach toward Neptune climaxes this week with their conjunction — meaning they cross paths from our point of view here on Earth. This unites the powers of will and illumination, respectively. Their conjunction occurs in Pisces, the home of Neptune and the zodiacal sector of imagination, spirit, and reckless delusion. Dare to tread the magical landscapes of your inner worlds, but beware: mystic visions can be confused with self-deluding dreams. Those who believe in their own enlightenment are often the most deceived.
Meanwhile, Jupiter and Mercury also cross paths in Aquarius, where Mercury’s power is exalted. This combination brings an element of compassion to our insights, endowing us with the gift of seeing the bigger picture. When taken together with the Sun-Neptune conjunction, we have, this week, the potential to envision an empowered humanity that cares for its own.
When reading your individual horoscope, be sure to read your Sun sign for the big picture and your rising sign for where the action is. Sun signs represent our personalities, but rising signs represent how we express ourselves in the world.
