Leave space to daydream, to wander about in the sunlight, or under a sky full of stars as you let yourself drift away into a world all your own. Your dreams are frivolous but divine inspiration from the universe. This is how you download intuitive messages and honor your soul’s path. Sunday, September 10, will bring a dream including alignment of the Cancer Moon and retrograde Neptune in Pisces.
This energetic influence will help you process the meaning of retrograde Neptune as you are encouraged to feel into your truth and make sense of any recent confusion. Often, the more you resist the divine downloads from the universe that come through in your dreams, the more you can feel at a loss as to what the next step in your life should be, yet when you honor that, no matter how fantastical they might seem, you suddenly give purpose to your path.
The Cancer Moon entering Leo helps you embrace your emotional body as you feel safe to navigate and hold space for what retrograde Neptune in Pisces brings to the surface. Neptune rules dreams, intuition, spirituality and the mystical elements, just as Pisces does. Together, they create a dream-like state, made even more significant by Neptune retrograde, challenging you to honor your intuition, regardless of how pragmatic it might seem to follow it.
The Moon and Neptune in Pisces create the perfect atmosphere for daydreams, intuitive writing and rituals under the Waning Crescent Moon. To embrace and honor more of the Piscean energy, especially as this zodiac sign represents Neptune, try incorporating the essential oils of cedarwood, sandalwood and bergamot, along with crystals like amethyst, bloodstone and clear quartz. You can also use the herbs sage, basil and lemon balm to help you incorporate the element of Pisces into your meals, beverages and rituals to align yourself with this intuitive water sign.
