Neptune has been in Pisces for quite some time (over 10 years in fact), and goes retrograde once a year for roughly five months. This year, it’s going retrograde on June 30 until December 6, highlighting themes around dreams, illusion, and spirituality.
And considering it’s in the sign of Pisces, which Neptune already rules, confusion could be strong—whether you’re feeling illusory about your job, your relationship, or your living situation, for example.
But when it goes retrograde, those illusions are presented to us at center stage. Newfound clarity and insights might start coming in as Neptune backspins, so pay attention to your intuition throughout this sensitive season. And as astrology expert Imani Quinn recently told mindbodygreen, you’ll also want to “allow yourself to make mistakes, learn from them, and keep your boundaries in place when it feels necessary.”
