Today I am going to take a look at a birth chart example from my client practice in order to explore Neptune transits. I'll also share some advice for dealing with Neptune transits, as well as how to deal with transits in general.
Hey everyone, this is Acyuta-bhava from Nightlight Astrology and today we are going to take a look at a birth chart example from my client practice in order to explore Neptune transits. We're going to give some advice for dealing with Neptune transits as well as how to deal with transits in general, one of the most common questions that I get from people day in and day out as well, thanks for giving me some sense of what the weather is going to bring. What do I do about it? And I think that there is a few tried and true answers to that question in almost every situation. So we're going to talk about that today, as well as some specific pieces of advice that I tend to give people for Neptune transits? Why are we doing this because this week, Mars has been square to the planet Neptune. So we've had a little bit of that energy just sort of in the air at the moment. And what I'm going to do for us is, first of all, just show you what Mars is doing sort of in the sky. At the moment, let's take a look at this hold on just a second, we pull up the real time clock here I've got a bunch of charts up on the screen that we're going to be using today. So I'm just sorting through them. So let's take a look at the real time clock and just show you some of the Neptunian signatures that are sort of in the air right now. Also, knowing that we have a lot of Neptunian action this year in general with Jupiter moving to conjoin. Neptune is generally a very positive transit, but you always have to be a little bit cautious when approaching Neptune. Alright, so here you can see Mars is squaring Neptune, the sun is just separated from a sextile to Neptune.
So we have a number of influences this week that have touched on Neptune, and we will also be getting more. So if we go forward just a little bit. See, as the year continues, in, especially in the month of March, we're going to see three planets coming into the sign of Pisces and dancing with Neptune. And then if you go forward to April, it gets really intense, then you've got Mercury joining in its fall. But Mercury joins in later on in March and then go forward just a little bit more to get the conjunction between Mercury and Neptune. And then April's like a big big Pisces party, Venus enters Jupiter and Neptune are getting together. And then Mars enters and you get a whole big conglomeration of planets in Neptune sign. Now, I'm going to talk a little bit today about some of the positive aspects of positive dimensions of Neptune. Mostly, the story I'm going to tell is sort of a cautionary tale. But don't get me wrong, there'll be lots of very positive things to talk about. Not only, you know, as these transits come along, but even today, I'll add a few positive notes into the mix. For us, it doesn't all just feel super heavy. But I'm going to show you guys a birth chart from my client practice someone who has agreed to anonymously share some of the basic components of a major Neptune transit that they that they went through, and hopefully will serve us in our studies and also, just in learning to live with the transits in general.
So let's begin with the natal chart on the screen. And thanks to this individual for volunteering, we're going to take out the outer planets for now. And we're just going to take a look at one particular natal signature. Now, this is an individual who you can see, here's Mercury's square to Saturn in the 12th house. This is someone who at various times in their life has struggled with addiction, substance abuse, or dependency. And so this is someone who knows, you know, astrology, and so is able to reflect upon their own chart and noticing that at certain times in their life when they've struggled with drugs or addiction, that this particular aspect of their chart has often played a key role. Now, why would this be? Well, let's look at it very carefully. First of all, Mercury and Ketu, the south node of the moon in the ninth house, this is really interesting.
Ketu as an influence in Indian astrology is associated with the the body that was severed off from the demon who tried to steal the nectar of immortality. So Rahu is the name of Demon excuse me, Ra whose is the head of the demon and Ketu is the severed body. So what happened was In short, this demon wants to drink the nectar of immortality and tries to deceive Vishnu by dressing up like a demigod. And he's really an A Soros kind of like a demon. He tries to dress up like a demigod to cut in line to get some of the nectar of immortality for selfish purposes. And of course, Vishnu recognises, and in his Mohini Morty forms is a feminine form of Vishnu uses the sudarshan chakra which is the weapon of time and cuts off his head. So, there you have the severed head Rahu, which is often often represents hunger, thirst, desire, in unquenchable hunger and thirst and lust and desire and Ketu. The severed body that represents liberation moksha, it tends to the south node point toward material loss, but spiritual gain, material loss but spiritual gain, or, at its worst Ketu can also represent escapism, the tendency toward illusion and the tendency to be swept off in other worldly fantasies or sort of intoxicated by other worldliness. But often it's a mix of both as well.
So here we have someone who has always been interested in things like astrology, and spirituality and philosophy and things like that, but also has struggled with some substance abuse issues, addiction. So I hope I'm using the proper phrases but Mercury's conjunction with the south node in the ninth house shows us the minds interest, you could say in other worldliness, in spiritual realities and so forth. But it could also show a tendency toward you know, getting carried away getting swept up in or intoxicated. Now that's intensified when we put Mercury with Ketu in a close square, with Saturn and Pisces in the 12th house. To within two degrees, it's an applying square, and Saturn in the 12th house isolation. It's a it's a, the 12th house and Saturn together in that position can represent self destructive qualities. And hidden qualities as well as someone who you know, had to try to function in the world despite having some drug problems going on. So the hiddenness the self destructiveness, the isolation, the you know, the the imprisonment of these habits. So, now, this could mean you could delineate Mercury square to Saturn in a variety of ways, but these this squares active in their life, at the times when, you know, they've, they've really struggled, right So, so you can see the natal pattern. You may know right now, obviously, Neptune is transiting the sign of Pisces.
So when Neptune made a transit of this mercury, Saturn square, this individual had a relapse. And we're going to talk about that in just a second. For those of you who are in living, sober for my for I am, for example, I've part of my journey with Ayahuasca, helped me get move away from addiction to opiates in my early 20s. And, you know, sobriety is a day by day process, even whether you're in a 12 step group or not, it is you can't live your life thinking, Well, I'm better than that, because the voices are there, the urges are there, and they can sneak up on you. And so it's, it's a really, it's a challenging thing. And it since I was, you know, in my early 20s, I haven't had any relapses with opiates per se. Not exactly. Although, in I remember when I had my kidney stones, and I was given some painkillers, and that was very triggering, to have to deal with that. But anyone knows who's had to go through fighting for their sobriety in any area of life, that it's a struggle, and sometimes you fall back down.
So no judgement for anyone who's going through that process because it can be very challenging. So at any rate, a few things one is that when you're studying transits in. In astrology, I think one of the most helpful things that I've ever heard came from listening to this Some Indian astrologers talking about the birth chart as like a garden. And the planets are like different types of flowers, perennials or, you know, plants, annuals whatever that come up at certain times. You know, they say that one of the best you know it signs of an intelligent landscapers someone who creates a landscape around a home such that there's always something blossoming, there's always some colour appearing throughout the whole season. unintelligent one, there's only one coming up, you know, there's only one wave of stuff that comes up, and then it's just dead for the rest of the year, you know, it's not dead, but you know, it's this, it's not popping the rest of the year.
So all the magazines, you know, you read my wife reads these magazines, she likes this kind of stuff. And they're dedicated to showing you which ones will bloom around which time keep this diverse? Well, the birth chart is very much like that. It is not the kind of thing where every flower in the chart, every planet in the chart is all blossoming at once. A different times different aspects of the birth chart, or our karma appear. Different themes are amplified, different areas of life come up at different times, some more at some times than others, and less. So that's to say that first is important as we're studying this chart today. Because you can think to yourself, well, you know, I've already been through this particular part of my chart, I know that one very well. But it only takes a future transit with a lot of focus on the same area, for a new layer or level or expression of the same karma, the same perennial flower will pop up. And one of the things that this individual was reflecting on, given that they know astrology was how they underestimated in some ways the potential of Neptune activating this part of their chart for a relapse, or for that it kind of snuck up on them, that they wouldn't have anticipated it not out of pride, I don't think but just like any of us, you kind of think well, you know, I know that part of my chart have sort of been there done that, especially as you age and grow and get familiar with different placements in your chart. And you think, yeah, I've passed that test or I've sort of levelled up beyond certain things or whatever. And we think of the chart in a sense as a series of tests, and if you do them, well, then you never go backward.
But sometimes it's not that way, it's sometimes there's recurring challenges, there's layers of the onion that are being pulled back, that at any rate, if you ever if you're studying transits at home, just know that when a particular dimension of your chart is amplified, you know, when it when it's uh, excuse me, when it's highlighted by the transits, you know, that that that area of your chart, no matter how well you think, you know, it will often appear again, for re examination. So one of the easiest ways to know well, what dimension of my birth chart am I working with right now or this year, or this month, or whatever, is to look at what the transits are saying, and what areas of the chart they're highlighting. And you can almost always tell that by you know, a planet that's getting an aspect usually from slower moving planets, because then it'll give you a gives a little bit more substance and time to see that area of the chart unfolding. But also aspects, aspects in your chart, suggest complexes in different areas and different themes and patterns coming together to form a larger constellation. And then when a planet happens to be hitting both parts of that Neptune here hit Saturn as it squares mercury, right when when you see some some piece of your chart being highlighted by the transits, you know that that that complex that constellation in the chart is going to come forth. And in some ways, there's no way that you can possibly prepare for or know what to do about it, you just sort of have to live through it. And just know, okay, this aspect of my chart is going to be present again. But for most of us, that's where astrology really does its best work is to say, hey, look, this part of your charts about to be active during these times. And at the very least, you know, if you know it's going to rain, bring an umbrella you get you get some sense of what you're, what you're looking at what's going to become prominent or important.
Okay, so let's talk about the timeline of the transits that unfolded around this person's relapse experience, which was a long drawn out thing, and then we'll get to give some tips for Neptune transits in general and Neptune and also transits in general. So, first of all, let me Bring up, we are going to look at a buy wheel and just a second here, but I can, there we go get them getting my notes all set up here. All right, let's just see if I can show you guys just kind of kind of manoeuvre this a little bit. Here we go, we're going to add back in the outer planets. And here we are. So you can see here is the animated chart, and we're going to go back in time to 2015 November. So 2015 We're going to go to the relapse, which this person shared a date of about the beginning of November. So the relapse begins. This is like you know, starting to repeat old old habits, something this person had been sober for a while too so. And you can see here's Neptune over Saturn. Neptune is also squaring mercury. And then you can also see that simultaneously you have Saturn hitting mercury and squaring Saturn. So it's a Neptune Saturn square in the sky that is constellated around this natives, Mercury Saturn square. So that was the configuration present when this person relapsed. This is the beginning of the relapse.
And I think it's also important to note that we have just as this is happening, if we if you depending on if you use the mean or true node, by the way, you're gonna look at just within the weeks leading up to this, that Ketu conjoins the ascendant. Right. So leading up to this, you have the south node of the moon, that that potential for Moksha liberation from the body, but sometimes that same urge can be associated with drugs or escapism. Crossing over the ascendant, which is the critical degree in the first house, it's often associated with the natives body and their their mind. So you have a strong Ketu influence coming in through their body and their mind right before the relapse. And then you have again, first of November, you've have Neptune within one degree of a square to Mercury. Well Saturn's closing in on Mercury, and then Saturn's hitting Natal, Saturn and Neptune's hitting natal Saturn. So it's quite the constellation right around this is this is when the relapse happened. Now, let's go forward a little bit more and also this person likes to track Chiron I don't do so as much any longer I one time I did for a little while, but but you can notice that this person's also in the midst of a Chiron return, it's really an interesting point to make, that they're in the process of Chiron returning Chiron returns often can signify a personal healing crisis and the transformation present in that healing crisis. It's just an interesting side note.
At any rate, let's go forward now to a couple of years later so this is going to be about just a couple into into February here in early February of 2017, this person continuing on their struggles with substance and drug use which had the relapse it continued and was you know, something that they were trying to obviously keep it keep saying keep healthy keep living a normal life while dealing with this under the surface. Well, unfortunately, the situation with getting the drugs and so forth led to being arrested. So now we have Chiron are we have Ketu and Neptune together at 10 degrees right over Saturn two years later. Saturn is over Mars right here which is not you know, you don't want to malefic can joining them alethic is not very often can bring with it misfortune or difficulty. You also have a couple of other signatures. First of all, transiting Neptune is of course squaring mercury. So still activating this part of the chart is sort of complex within the chart, you can also see that very recently, Mars has been over the ascendant. And so there's, there's a pretty strong signature in here, around this complex in the chart being activated and kind of a malefic quality in the air.
It's also interesting to note that Jupiter was opposite Uranus at the time. And this person considers like, you know, in a sense, what I don't want to say put words in this person's mouth. But what I picked up on was that this was a moment in a sense of mercy, because it because of getting caught in this way, it allowed them to get sober again, eventually. So here's Jupiter in the sign of the balance the scales of justice, right, opposing Uranus, the sudden moment of being apprehended by justice. And you can see that again, like the probably the biggest thing here is there's Neptune and Ketu travelling together, and right over that natal Saturn activating that Saturn Mercury square. person, you know, was not in the right mind for several years during this transit. This is someone who knows astrology to one of the things they said to be at the end was big question is, how could I not have recognised this transit in what was going on? And so yeah, that's it. And that's, that's exactly what we're gonna address one more thing. So then finally, their sentencing occurred two years later.
So we're gonna go forward to, you know, sentencing in the month of like, say, like, April 2019, there abouts. And I've shifted some of the details around but yeah. So the sentencing they ended up through, I think, humility, probably a good attorney, and through a real spirit of, you know, being humble and realising like, I messed up, I need to be sober. Like, this is not who I am. That there was a very graceful sentencing experience, and could have been a lot worse. So then they were reflecting Well, what's happening at that time? You can see that a couple of interesting things one, hey, look at there's Chiron right on the ascendant. This is post Chiron return Chiron conjoins, the ascendant and this person is sober, and they are given a lot of grace and mercy and forgiveness in terms of the consequences of their actions. You can see Jupiter is now over Mars, when Saturn was over Mars, the arrest takes place Jupiter is now over Mars, and there's pardon and forgiveness. You can also see that transiting Venus and Neptune and if you want to pull in mercury, are all in that 12th House Neptune is now hitting Chiron and exalted Venus, good fortune is hitting the Saturn Mercury square. Right. So, this these are these are, you know, generally good signs, what would be the natal signature of potentially finding good fortune or recovery or sobriety or being able to, you know, sort of turn one's life around in the midst of such a thing? Well, let's look back at the natal chart, and I'll show you like, how is it that this person in other words, despite the difficulty of these placements, here, you can see they're born with a Neptune Sun conjunction by the way so this natives question about how could I not see it? You know, it's like, Well, part of it's also because when you're born with the sun conjoined Neptune Neptune is part of how you see the world anyway.
So it's that other worldly quality can probably sneak in a little bit more easily, I would think. If we look at the 12th house, and this is just the way that I would do it, you might see it in other places as well. But you look at the 12th house And you, you look at its dispositor, like who is the host of that Saturn in the 12th, or mercury in the ninth and so thus the Square itself both being ruled by Jupiter. But we have an exalted Jupiter, in the fourth house, an angular place, very strong and conjoined with the IC. So there's a basis in the Nativity of exalted Jupiter Arian qualities. As a client, I know this person to be a truly good person who struggled like many people do with the disease of addiction. Not you know, in other words, not a criminal, you know what I mean, not and so many people, of course, what's one of the big travesties in some ways of the way that we've dealt with drugs in the modern era, there's a lot of people in prison who smoked pot, you know what I mean, or whatever the case might be. But at any rate, you'll also notice that Venus, the goddess of good fortune, bestower, of good fortune and blessings, is also conjoined, the midheaven. So Venus is disposed of by Saturn in the 12th. So there's going to be some blemish to public reputation.
But Venus is also the exultation ruler of the 12th house, which means there's this way in which Venus will lift the matters of the 12th house up and indicates some degree of positive outcome overall. There's some other good things in this chart that speak to me in the same way, like the exalted moon, for example, in Taurus in the second house, that there's resources available to this person that are probably going to be helpful. I think, even, you know, the fact that both Melafix Mars and Saturn are disposed of by an exalted Jupiter is helpful in this case, but at any rate. So I thought you guys would enjoy seeing this. But from this, let's now talk about some takeaways because I decided to share this chart because I had someone share this sort of through that the portal of the hashtag grab series, and knowing this person, as a former client, and you know, knowing that they went through this and I thought, yeah, this would make a good story. They volunteered. So hey, yeah, let's share this one. Now that we're talking about Neptune this week. The question was, you know, as someone who studies my own chart, like, how could I have missed this, you know?
Well, first of all, that is the nature of Neptune, no matter who we are, I think as astrologers you know, Neptune can kind of sneak up on us, it's very easy to get pulled in by Neptune may be more so than any other planet. And the reason for this, in my experience, these are just my humble opinions, is that Neptune transits start in very subtly and often many degrees before the exact transit, the thing that you may be intoxicated by, whether it's this actual substance or not, will start gradually working its way into your psyche or your life. Way before you're aware of the thing that you're becoming intoxicated by. Now, there's not Neptune is a lot more than intoxication. So don't get me wrong. In this case, Neptune shows up from the start of the process through the end. It's there it's present, when forgiveness and mercy and release is is present as as it is when intoxication is present. So it's a very diverse planet. It can show up as illusion. And eventually, it often is right it's around when we become stripped of our illusions did we oh, I'm this, I'm disillusioned by something. I where I see where I have been intoxicated, or living in a fantasy, and Neptune is present, often like this. If you have Neptune Sun transit, I'm bewildered. I don't know what to do. I'm going to chase things that are, you know, I'm going to aggrandized certain fantasies and chase after them. And then by the end of a sun Neptune transit you go like, Well, why did I do that? And it's last pass over the sun. You go, oh, okay, I see. I'm seeing clearly where my hopes and projections and fantasies sort of carried me along. And Neptune is such a teacher in this regard. It's not just giving you you know, such as slipping you a cosmic roofie and then, you know, ruining your life.
Neptune will also deliver the the grace and the healing to understand illusion and fantasy in much the same way that the seven of cups in the tarot. This shows a man looking into the clouds, where cups are in the clouds with all different kinds of fantastic creatures coming out of them and things. That card will often show up when there's illusion, yes, but also when there is some deeper wisdom to be gained by going through the process of our fantasies and projections and so forth. So, you know, that card doesn't just mean illusion, nothing good comes of it. So if we think of the gods administering certain kinds of experiences for the purpose and sake of our growth and learning, then I think we can get to the heart of why Neptune transits. It's like, well, that's just the way that Neptune works. If there's going to be a karmic season in your life where you learn something, and Neptune is involved, be prepared for you to feel at a certain point, like how did that sneak up on me? How did I possibly get diluted? How did I possibly go down that rabbit hole, and then by the end, you got to go, okay, I get it, I get why that was Grace, I get why that was God moving me in a certain direction of the universe taking me through an experience and showing me what I'm susceptible to, it can make you more firm and grounded, mentally or in your, in your spiritual practices in your commitment to sobriety or whatever the case might be. Also, as Neptune transits go, if I look at my own Neptune transits in my lifetime and so forth. I don't know of a transit that is more more about surrender, and the feeling of loss of control the Neptune. If by the end you say not my will that line, if you say I'm I will go wherever you send me and I will learn whatever it is that I will learn whether and if that happens, because I follow my own foolish fantasies, and I get lost. Just please don't forget me the number I couldn't think of a better prayer. And it's a prayer that's I think, common in many traditions, which is I don't know what's best for me. I don't know where I'm going. I can easily be swayed. My boat, you know, is pushed by the winds of desire and fortune. And my mind is not a steady state. I don't always know what's best for me. I know Neptune is coming to visit me. Take me where you will the please don't forget me. And please don't let me forget you.
At some point, if I get lost in the fog, bring me through, lead me away from shipwreck, you know, it's a classic prayer lead me away from temptation. We don't mean by that, you know, the temptation of watching an R rated movie, you know, we mean that the temptations of losing our way. And that looks what does that look like for you losing your way? You know? Well, Neptune is the great prayer for Neptune, in my experience, at least is you know, if I lose my way, temporarily, please just guide me back. You know, please don't forget me, Don't let me forget you. I know that my mind and my own will and weigh may take me astray at time. So just please don't ever leave me. That prayer, I feel is is so appropriate for Neptune and Neptune's version of mercy. Neptune's version of teaching us. We have to be willing to get lost if we want to be found. We have to be in a state of surrender. This is one of the reasons I have a number of people in my extended family who are in 12 Step programmes, why I think that they work for so many people, there is the sense of being surrendered one day at a time. This is bigger than me, there are things I can't control. A seasoned meditator is in many ways, not a lot different from a seasoned person who has checked in with their sponsor every day. Today, I'm going to try my best but I know that I that the addiction can be stronger than me. So there's a surrender involved.
And in my experience, if you're going to prepare for a Neptune transit in your life, you can prepare knowing that that God is coming over to your house and this goes for all transits really knowing that the God is coming to your house. You say I welcome your teachings, please be merciful. Please lead me and guide me to my best self to all good and divine attributes. And please protect me please save me from the worst in me or you know, in in the environment. But also I accept an open to whatever you have to say or wherever you will bring me and I feel fine that that is the that is the approach the only advice that I can give people who will say oh, there's a Neptune transit and I'll say yeah, okay, this area watch for this, this this and I'm going oh, wow, that sounds like a lot. What do I do about that? Well, nothing. Nothing just a God's coming to your house for dinner. You know what I mean? So Be humble. Be receptive, be open, don't be reactive. Don't be afraid. Just try not to have any expectations and open your heart to whatever this to wherever things may go. And you know, the prayer for Neptune, I think is a prayer for all the planets, but it's uh, don't don't Don't forget me. I might go into the fog. I might get lost in something. I if it's Pluto, maybe I'm gonna go to the underworld, you know, but leave me home, ultimately, I'm a soul surrendered, you know. So if we can take that attitude I find that makes it a little bit easier. But there are some things that like this person was reflecting in the email that they wrote to me and they said, You know, I can't say someone who knows astrology and should, you know, should have seen this coming. That you know, there's some things that are just karmic you this is just something that I had to go through. I see that now. And you know, and that's the surrendered wisdom you could say of of Neptune also the surrendered embodied wisdom of that Chiron return or Chiron crossing the ascendant even if you want to go in that direction, not that I'm at all an expert on Chiron. Usually, you're going to get some hints along the way with Neptune transits. Just because you know, Neptune is coming doesn't mean that you'll see it coming, it tends to appear earlier than you think it will and subtler ways that build, it's like slowly starting to get intoxicated, sip by sip on cosmic wine. So you're starting to sip it a lot earlier than you think you are. That's always something to keep in mind.
I'd say, within seven or eight degrees, Neptune starting to come in, you'll start to slowly get that intoxication. And again, some of that's beyond our control, but some of it also, you can try to stay more aware of knowing that it sends tends to come earlier and more subtly than you think it will. And also, usually, you'll get some bigger hints along the way, especially as Neptune approaches exact conjunctions, you're going to start to get, oh, I'm now completely possessed. And then oftentimes the desire to hide or to cover it up or to try to make sure that no one sees you know that, okay, I've been, I'm possessed by something, I'm intoxicated by something. And maybe it's not a substance, maybe it's just something else. But still the urge. You don't necessarily want people to see all the time with Neptune that you're that you're overwhelmed or possessed by some energy, which Neptune can be sort of all pervasive. And so that inclination towards hiddenness deception that starts to creep in as well. So watch for that. You get hints along the way like that. And those can also be like little droplets of Mercy saying, Hey, you, you can help shape this experience. And, you know, maybe you will, maybe you won't, at the end of the day. I'm not, you know, again, if we keep praying in the right direction, and even if you're getting completely overwhelmed by something, if you can still just wave the white flag every day in your heart, I think that can do nothing but help as someone who's gone through relapses in my early 20s For the first couple of years, even while I was drinking Ayahuasca would come back and once or twice in a year, I might have a moment of going out and partying and you know, just feeling like, utter crap because of it. You know. And so that process of changing your heart changing your life requires that you just keep waving the white flag of surrender and saying, like, I'm in this to become a better person, but I also need grace and mercy every step of the way. I'm not going to get there. So please help and calling out for help, both practically and spiritually, I think you know, and watching for the hints that come along the way.
So karma will blossom when it blossoms we are here to experience karma that's a part of it. That's that's part of the deal. We do have freewill. So how we respond to karma matters a great deal. And part of the way we are proactive with karma in our lives, according to at least my guru and the sages within the bhakti yoga tradition, is to be in the mode of or surrendered soul every day, to keep the sadhana strong, which is to say not that you're strong, but that your ability to hit the knees, you know, to to get to get on your mat to get to get into the prayer position. That you're there, if we can be consistent with with that surrender, that being a daily assault daily surrendered. That helps immensely in my in my humble experience, so I hope that this has been useful for you today in terms of just working with planetary energies looking at a birth chart learning some things about a birth chart talking about Neptune transits my blessings and deep gratitude to this for this individual sharing their stories of vulnerable way. They are doing well now.
So, you know, and I know that this person to also be a soul surrendered and us and a soul every day experiences like this can take you to your knees. And you feel like well, I've already been to my knees with that thing before in my life and then it can do it again. So hence the the importance of you know, for all of us that we take that as not, not something to be afraid of, but something to remind us of the importance of really recognising that we are in the hands of powers greater than ourselves and if we can rely upon the mercy of those powers every day, if we can say, universe I know you're guiding me along planets, God's God, whatever your religious path might look like, but if we can humbly submit ourselves to that after every day, the participatory nature, the co creative nature's there, we sometimes we act like the CO creativity of the universe is a given. It's not it's a disposition of the heart and soul that starts with humility, and, and surrender. So unless that's a practice, it's hard to actually, you know, navigate, especially when very strong transits come in sometimes difficult areas. So anyway, that's what I've got for you guys today. Hope this was useful. I hope you guys have a fantastic day. Today. We will be unpacking Mercury's upcoming station and retrograde as the week goes on here and a few other things. So looking forward to that and we'll see you again tomorrow. Bye.
