“Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper.” Isaac Bashevis Singer
Neptune, the planetary ruler of our dreams, imagination, inner wisdom, and spirituality, stations direct today, after a five-month retrograde period in selfless Pisces, the sign that it rules. It’s very possible that Neptune’s forward shift could be signaling to us now that we also need to follow suit and pick up that old, saturnian chisel again – or magic wand, whatever you prefer – and carry on with the process of sculpting out our life’s dream in the physical or outer world; transmute our higher vision for ourselves into a living, breathing, pulsating reality that we never lose sight of.
“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo
What do you see in the marble, that is before you now? Anything worth carving out? Or do you possibly need to revisit the drawing board for further inspiration?
It’s often said that our lives are “works of art in progress.” There always seems to be something that we’re either revising or building towards. Also, it’s rare when things proceed in a clear-cut, linear fashion, isn’t it? Just like with the planets, we often seem to have our own retrograde periods. Sometimes, too, instead of just revisiting the past, we may need to overhaul or revise it. Something that I actually attempted to do, last night, quite successfully, on the eve of “fantasy” Neptune’s stationing direct.
In a nutshell, what I did was visualized and reviewed different aspects/events of my past and, in some areas where I was not entirely pleased with how things had panned out, I went ahead and, in my mind’s eye, rewrote the circumstances as I wish they had been instead, from today’s perspective. I especially enjoyed re-scripting many of my immediate family and childhood memories, generously injecting peace and harmony among all of us, in place of any tension or conflict. Even one family member, who had a serious issue with alcohol, no longer had this problem, in my revised past, and he was so much happier. We all were.
Anyway, directly experiencing/perceiving my past as something that was fluid or malleable, instead of something that could not be changed or re-written, felt very freeing and energy-boosting for me. It was also a fun thing to do, as it engaged my imaginative (Neptunian) powers. I believe that it also put me more in touch with what I really need to craft around myself now, as part of my daily reality, in order to feel more fulfilled and on target with my life purpose.
You may want to try this yourself, for a few minutes, maybe before you go to bed. Especially with illusory Neptune, the planet of creative license, stationing direct. This planet’s “envisioning vibration” is more pronounced now and “flights of fancy” are easier to catch. :)
