Oh i didn't. I had my dad duties, then took a nice relaxing bath and went to bed. :)

But you're right. Action is the solution.

Awww, that's sweet to say! I'm really appreciative of Jim and the other long-time astrologers here for trying to help us all understand ourselves better.

Sending you hugs and wishes for happiness and fulfillment.

I got my tax refund and a dramatic increase in my available credit on a credit card today, and just noticed that I am halfway to my goal of paying off all my credit card debt this year.

I am feeling very jovial. :lol:

It's funny, I was looking at my solar return from last October, and I remember dreading the Saturn. Now that I look at it, I realize it was more Jupiter, with some Saturn. It is indeed a year of hard work, but getting good results.

It is really sweet to read how you are making astrology work for the best in your life, which ripples out into all the lives you touch. Thats the best use of it and gives me lots of hope and happiness.

Great news about your finances too!

When I read about my SSR with saturn/venus conjunct my natal venus I was like ....OMG...when you read all the negatives its alittle overbearing. But I think, like in statistics, astrology deals alot with patterns of averages...mean median and mode....and each one of those averages bears a different sort of interpretation, your not the average man in many ways so I think your results, while similiar to the whole are going to bring you to a very different end result.

Im still waiting for saturn/ venus to disfigure and disappoint but at this stage in my life those sort of dramatic are not part of my lifestyle so how they mainfest are psychological issues that I can, with maturity say to myself...." Whats really going on here?"

I hope you and your daughter take a cool daddy daughter vacation somewhere like DisneyWorld! Or to see the Big Trees!!

I see what a romantic fool I've been.

Around my coworker's bday, she got distant, and I found out that she got back together with her ex. She didn't have Venus in aspect to me, and so this relationship was primarily a mix of partile Sun-Moon and partile Saturn-MC. It was a genuine contact, but she just wanted casual sex. I was in love. I had enough info to know it wouldn't be a happy ending, but I have a tendency to be romantic and ignore it.

Saturn octiles Venus, and I'm learning to be more realistic about love. As intensely as I love her, part of me knows I'd be selling myself short and setting myself up for unhappiness. I am embracing a more selfish, practical mindset. I have sacrificed too easily for relationships that were not reciprocal.

I like myself way better now than 10 years ago. In 10 years I will have grown that much more. My potential for deep meaningful connection with decent people is only going to increase, as long as I do my work.

Today Uranus octiles Neptune for most of the next 5 months. My heart is full of romantic notions and longing, but I am also accepting new realities, whether or not they make me wince, because they bring freedom from selective realities.

My June 11 Lunar return looked grim, so the day after I found out she went back to her ex I booked plane tickets to Honolulu. I'm leaving Saturday.

My relocated SLR will have Neptune, Jupiter, Sun on the angles. I will delude myself into behaving like royalty for a week.

t. Neptune DC 4.51""

t. Neptune square t. Sun 2.00""

Saturn-Venus octile ends June 15, the day I return from Hawaii, with a golden tan.

I'm back home, and glad to be passed the 3-month Saturn-Venus octile. I noticed that my broken-hearted feelings about my weird, lopsided work romance are over, so that's nice.

I now am back to Pluto-Pluto square and Uranus-Neptune octile as my current main long-term aspects. The Uranus transit appears to be manifesting as clarity/insight around//boredom/fatigue with//liberation from most of my romantic and sexual fantasies. The Pluto transit is continuing it's separative effect, and I'm thinking about long-term life goals that don't include romantic partnership.

I feel like I'm learning a lot.

The last few days have continued to offer me profound insights about the harmful ways I've related to the world. Uranus keeps shedding clarity on how I've been toxically empathetic and nice (Neptune) in romantic relationships, and how to get out of those patterns.

I grew up with a passive dad and a mentally ill, abusive, abuse-survivor mom and abusive, abuse-survivor sisters in a fundamentalist Christian cult. So being self-denying, emotionally giving, and hiding my sexuality and masculinity were the survival strategies for that context.

In relationships as an adult, I've gravitated to other trauma survivors, where I continued to serve and meet other needs, while neglecting my own. I've avoided friendships with men, out of insecurity and suppression/demonization of masculinity (which can present toxically, or in healthy ways). None of this is satisfying, makes me happy, or leads to happy relationships. It's isolating, and sabotages romantic relationships.

I'm realizing both how far I've come in letting go of this pattern, and how far I have to go.

This time of Pluto-Pluto is a hidden blessing, as it's easier to focus on behaving with healthy selfishness outside the context of other relationships. I'm realizing the importance to next focus on healthy male relationships, to reclaim rejected masculinity, create a positive growth-oriented support network, and change the dynamics of my relating to women.

I know what you mean about nice.

I think and hope that you will be effective in moving past being nice, which is really not nice-its like a fake happiness.

You have to be nice to grumpy cystomers becayse you need thier business.
Heres to not having to be nice but being happy🌈😀

Part of me had been wondering if the Uranus-Neptune transit would involve a period of sobriety.

Sure enough, Sunday I abruptly decided to take a break from cannabis. Granted, out of all the substances I could be taking, this one hasn't had too many obvious negative consequences; the strains I consume have a high CBD-to-THC ratio, meaning I don't really get "stoned", just frequently, mildly relaxed.

Still, (1) it is habit-forming (about the same as coffee, I find. Easy to start consuming daily without thinking, and a few days of mild withdrawal upon quitting) (2) I'm not sure that I need it to reduce my inhibitions any more. I've been pushing myself to do all the things I've been afraid of for the last 8 years, to the point where I feel a lot less like fear is going to rule the rest of my life, and have a lot less neuroticism associated with my creative pursuits (3) I'm afraid that it's a substitute for connection. I get why Neptune's role as a merger force is associated with drug use. It inhibits the inhibition, and makes it easier to feel connected. But maybe it's taking energy and attention from real connection, and limiting the types of people who would be interested in being with me.

So, I stopped it on Sunday, to take a two-month break and see what the results are.

So far, the results are that I have caught up on my laundry, have had a hard time falling asleep (withdrawal symptom), have found it easier to avoid carbs, and have been writing more.

Maybe it won't be a huge variable. But a slight shift in bearing over a long enough time is enough to arrive at a very different destination.

---

I still have a lot of confusion about whether long-term I am better suited to being in a committed relationship vs. being a life-long bachelor; whether polyamory is something authentic about myself I shouldn't repress vs. a symptom of my attachment issues.

But I *do* know that some of my romantic notions are toxic. Believing in "fated romances" is a path to unhappiness. Partile angular Neptune means I will always be "yearning", even if I were in a relationship with someone wonderful.

Regardless, this year is probably going to continue to be isolating, with the Pluto-Pluto square. I'm not dating anyone, I'm not on any dating sites, though I have had spontaneous flings, which I feel less guilty about each time.

---

Natal aspects to Neptune:
Ne-0-Asc
Ne-90-Ju 5°55'
Ne-60-Pl 1°10'

I'm not sure whether to consider Jupiter angular or not. I see my MC at 10°48 Virgo, based on an 11:57am birth time. My birth certificate says 12:00; my mom says "a few minutes before noon". So the angularity is realistically in the 5-10 degree range--weak to non-existent.

However, it would be my only angular benefic, and I'd like to imagine that my personality isn't a total shit-show.

Regardless, I think the wide Ne-Ju square does help me understand my pull toward entertainment fields--writing, music, art. As well as my appreciation for morbid subject matter. In the Neptune-Pluto aspect thread, the word Jim used was "Lovecraftian", though in my case, my personal entertainment hero would be Vincent Price.

In general, I suspect the more I direct my Neptunian energies toward creative pursuits the happier I'll be.

---

End of report.

Lol, the bottom line with Uranus-Neptune is usually "altered states of consciousness." I suppose pot sobriety would ironically count as one of those.

Av,
Exploring your midpoint structures with your angular natal Neptune, I notice one of the important midpoints:

VE/MC = Nep (0,02 orb, 90 degree aspect, indirect.)

Ebertin says about this midpoint tone:
A peculiar attitude to the problem of love, shyness, unexplainable dislikes or aversions, Renunciation, the state of being unsatisfied and unhappy (in love)...

Av, you may want to explore your natal chart more with midpoints/cosmobiology. What astrological program are you using?

Just astro.com. I'm on a company mac and can't install personal software, unfortunately. I don't have my own computer.

I understand Av. Having and learning how to manipulate Solar Fire to quickly get the pertinent data one needs for their natals is a must for an astrologer in today's astrological world. And, most important, Jim is a wiz with Solar Fire for all our learning curves with our natal charts. I know little about astro.com program but certainly understand its main advantage--its free! I believe Jupe knows a-lot about astro free program. Jupe, do you know if astro program computes natal midpoint trees?

Yes, astro.com (aka Astrodienst) allows you to choose Ebertin style (with midpoints) under Chart Drawing Style. There are others as well. They are well marked.

Thanks Jupe. Av, you may look into the astro program and see if you can figure out how to get your Midpoint Trees with your natal planets; Asc & MC. If achievable, you would then want to obtain Ebertin's book 'Combination of Stellar Influences,' in order to explore with more depth with cosmobiology pertaining to midpoint structures with your natal points.

Here they are. I've limited this to the 90° wheel:

*Mer* / Sat/Nep +0°38' d / Sat/Asc +0°44' d
*Nep* / Ven/MC -0°02' / *Asc* +0°12' d
*Asc* / *Nep* -0°12' d / Ven/MC -0°14'
*Sat* / Jup/MC -0°59' d
*MC* / Sun/Jup -0°11' d
*Mon* / Sat/Plu -0°18' d
*Sun* / Ven/Mar +0°20' d
*Plu* / Mer/Sat -0°06' d

Click on PDF Additional Tables just above the chart and it displays a complete list of the natal planetary data, AND a list of planetary distances AND the midpoint structures and aspects AND the midpoints in zodiacal order AND the midpoints in 90 degree order.

Thanks Jupe, but I noticed Jim has posted some important midpoints for Av. But with your astro.com program observation handling Midpoints, Av and other members on this forum who use astro free program now have access to a rapid calculation of their natal midpoints for possible investigations with Ebertin's book, 'Combination of Stellar Influences.' 8-)
