Absalom Underwater. Aspects of
The conjunction of Neptune: It is difficult to believe in the immortality of the soul for a person who does not have a soul. In the areas ruled by the Planet in conjunction with Neptune, it is difficult for a person to concentrate: he begins meditation, which (without working out the aspect) is led by the lower programs of the subconscious, trying to put all manifestations of the principle of the Planet at the service of the ego. Neptune creates in the corresponding spheres a constant distortion of vision, false positions, temptations of conscious and unconscious deception, and it is very difficult to get rid of these influences, since an unprocessed connection gives a very deep and strong penetration of the lower octave of Neptune into the principle of the Planet. If Neptune is in conjunction with Venus, then at a low level of elaboration of the aspect, a person will constantly fall into false positions, and simply lie in social contacts and love, but both, as well as the available arts will be sources of endless pleasure for him, and elaboration gives a true connoisseur of art, and perhaps an artist. It is much more difficult to work out the conjunction of Neptune with Saturn, since the Neptune of the lower octave takes the eyes of Saturn, and the person is practically incapable of concentration (he quickly begins lower meditation, and his attention drifts away) and self-deepening, which are necessary for the development of discipline and inner honesty. The study of Pluto (which, by the way, has been sextile to Neptune for the entire second half of the 20th century, promising support), the only planet capable of dispelling the spell and deception of Neptune, helps here. At a high level, working out the connection with Neptune gives a person in the spheres ruled by the Planet a rare ability of true understanding, high meditations and external actions in which a person can express the Ineffable, but not everyone is able to see it. The conjunction of Chiron: It is better to selfishly serve God than disinterestedly the devil. The connection with Chiron gives the Planet a special sense of humor, which at first is more appreciated by others than by the person himself, since jokes are made on him. This aspect gives a karmic need for a non-standard study of the principle of the Planet, which will be stimulated by dead ends of development and incomprehensible chaotic situations in which an inner meaning is felt, but it is impossible to understand it, remaining in the usual life positions. So, the conjunction of Chiron with the Moon can give unusual or ordinary, but for some reason not amenable to treatment by standard methods of disease, which can literally torment a person until he turns to methods that official medicine considers quackery or, in any case, very suspicious. However, only a very harmonious connection with Chiron gives a quick solution to problems on the verge of a miracle; usually a person is required to seriously master and materialize (at least for himself) new and at first semi-fantastic views, techniques or methods. At the same time, internal work is often required in the field of subconscious programs controlled by the Planet. For example, working out the conjunction of Chiron with Pluto means revising your views (often at first completely unconscious) on fate, spiritual cleansing and repentance, the relationship of personal and world karma (“the role of the individual in history”), etc. Working out the connection gives unusual creative abilities in areas ruled by the Planet, techniques and methods that create the effect of a miracle, but, nevertheless, quite “scientific” and “rational” from the point of view of the next generation. The main methodological principle of Chiron is: “To understand is to get used to.” However, the meaning of working out the connection of the Planet with Chiron is still not in qualitatively new variants of the development of the principle of the Planet, but in the expansion of consciousness, which is carried out with its help.
