Here’s a photo of an Asian theme park called “Dream World.” The reason I searched for this picture is that Jupiter forms a square with my natal Neptune today, and Robert Hand’s interpretation for the uncommon transit on astro.com provides the following advice:
“Among other things, you will be challenged to demonstrate that your ideals are not just irrelevant, impractical abstractions. You will also have to demonstrate that your views are based on realism rather than some dream world, which is where you may very well be now. At any rate, this time will give you the opportunity to find out.”
To be honest, I’m feeling remarkably grounded right now with the sun and Venus traveling in tandem through my practical sixth house. In addition, transiting Mars formed a trine with my natal Mars yesterday and transiting Mercury conjoins my natal Saturn tomorrow. If anything, I’m feeling as if I’m thriving in the real world for the first time in ages. I’m back to work, I’m paying my bills, I’m focusing on my health and well-being, and I’m spending far less time worrying about what other people are going to do to fuck up my progress. I don’t believe that I’m living in a dream world at all.
However, I’m not sure if the more-grounding aspects that are characterizing my current mental state are going to make a difference when this Jupiter transit recurs in summer and fall. I really don’t want to feel as if I’m living in a dream world when I’m finally sure that I’ve moved past the nightmare scenario that defined my chart throughout the last several months. Jupiter isn’t personalized in my horoscope, so maybe I shouldn’t spend too much time worrying about it. Saturn is about to conjoin my natal Mars for a while, so I probably have other things to worry about, right?
I guess I’ll find out . . .
