(inspired by Neptune stationing and turning direct in November of 2016)
Neptune turns direct on November 19. This planet rules the sign of Pisces, and inspires the dreamer and mystic within us. As a Pisces Rising, dreams are my lifeline and help give meaning to a life that doesn’t always make sense. Through our dreams, we live into alternate realities where anything can happen and everything is possible.
I recently published a guidebook on dreaming: _ODE: A Guide to Dreaming the World Awake_. In it, i share ways to live into your dreams in service of your own life trajectory as well as the collective evolution (available on Kindle and iBooks).
My hope is that each one of you may come to recognize the beauty and magic of your dreamtime. Open to the questions, and to the ways they guide you along the Path. As poet Rainer Maria Rilke writes: “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves…” for the dreams will reveal more questions than answers.
Live into your dreams as they live into you. Dream deeply, remembering your essence. Live fully, trusting your inner guidance, and breaking free from the prisons of your mind and imprints of the overculture.
Dreams will show you pathways of hope and possibility. They will reveal the essential beauty within you and the Cosmos. They will take you on Quests, connecting you with passion, power, mystery and magic. They can even heal the rift between body and mind, soul and ego, ancient past, present and distant future.
Dreams may also reveal areas of apparent separation – these are the nightmares that wake you up in a breathless sweat. Yet even the darkest Dreams carry the essence of wholeness, especially when you are open and willing to face them – when you are open and willing to see/experience yourself in all your light and shadow.
You see, dreams speak the language of the soul. They communicate the soul’s desires and destiny. So, listen to your Dreams with more attentiveness than your learned professors and Nobel laureates. Their messages are not only for you, not only for your lineage past and future, but for the evolutionary healing of this planet.
Arrive at the Ocean of Dreams, the Sea of Infinite Possibility, the Endless Horizon, and the Beach of Stars. Remember, life is a dream. You are the dreamer. Listen deeper. Linger longer in the times betwixt and between. Relish the sacred pause.
May your life become a waking dream, awakening you to the Great Mystery of Love.
Sweet dreams. Deep dreams. Blessed dreams.
