NEPTUNE IN FIRST HOUSE Of Solar Return Astrology Chart
its very highest manifestation, Neptune — Ruler of Pisces, in the 1st house of Solar return is associated with a renewed commitment of the self to a higher force or principle.
This placement implies spirituality in being and in action.
It is not enough to believe in higher forces—you must also act accordingly, practicing what you preach.
During the Solar return year ,the individual is seen as a part of the Universal Whole, possessing both personal insignificance and great spiritual importance at the same time.
Insignificance occurs when the individual tries to stand alone.
Self-centered needs and egotism are dwarfed in comparison to the spiritual process, and do not matter in the long run. If the will is not in keeping with the Divine purpose, it is limited and meaningless.
Purely personal endeavors tend to get sidetracked before completion since the needs of others are more pressing, understandable, and important within the context of the Whole.
For this reason, ...
One tends to be egoless at this time, giving unselfishly to others and subjugating the self to a higher purpose. Even though this is a time of personal insignificance, it is also a time of great spiritual importance for the individual.
If you choose to view yourself and your soul within the realm of Universal consciousness, you will become aware. of the role you play in the spiritual process and your ability to affect another soul’s growth and potential.
This is a time when you might understand some truth others miss, and if you are willing to give unselfishly, you can be a beacon for those who are blind. Situations may be subtle or blatant, commitments passing or definitive.
In less obvious interchanges, compassion is increased, and you naturally want to help others.
You become the Good Samaritan giving your time and energy to those in need whether family, neighbors, or friends. In blatant interchanges, there is a definite request followed by a firm commitment to a cause, task, or individual.
You know what you are getting into. Some will choose to help many; others, only one particular person. As a rule, the process of assisting others comes easily and naturally when there is an awareness of a principle higher than one’s own ego.
During these times of giving, you will be encouraged to grow spiritually. Tasks usually exceed previous understanding and capabilities, and you must rise to the occasion through further enlightenment.
Certain cautions are necessary. Be sure the person or people you assist respond to your help in one way or another.
Either their condition should improve, or they should learn new patterns of behavior, possibly responding with love and kindness toward you or someone else. It is not essential that you personally receive a return. This placement is associated with selflessness and what you are doing may specifically require an unselfish act of love. However, don’t repeatedly waste your energy when there is no improvement at all. There are exceptions to this rule. Certain conditions are degenerative by their very nature, and do not lend themselves to improvement. For example, you may be caring for a person with a debilitating or progressive illness.
The manifestation of giving is meant to be helpful to the receiver, not draining for the giver.
This is a Solar Return year when you may be drawn to people in constant need, and in very negative interchanges when your help is not accepted, appreciated or effective, you will be drained.
Planet in Solar Return Aspecting in NEPTUNE
Do not become victimized by alcoholics, drug addicts, or those who really require professional help, but refuse to seek it.
Do not become so enamored of another person’s problems that you close your eyes to your own welfare. It is possible to enter or remain in a situation which is personally difficult for you and has no easy ending or way out. You adapt so easily to those around you that you might adapt yourself into a psychologically unhealthy situation. Maintain a sense of spiritual purpose. Regardless of your circumstances, whether you are involved in a positive or negative gift of love, push for insight and growth.
While you are focusing on higher thoughts,
you may have more difficulty with personal direction. You may not always understand your own actions, and can feel confused, indecisive, or lacking in ego definition. Surefootedness and stubborn opinions are unlikely because you are easily swayed. Self-knowledge will be elusive as you continually discover previously unknown facets of your personality. Preferences and abilities are in a state of flux. Unfortunately, it may not be easy to relate to your own quirks, or see your own contribution to problems and issues.
This is especially true if one is not working with spiritual or psychological insight. Instead, you can be evasive or deceiving, lying when pressured. If the future appears uncertain, this is a time to go with the flow of events even though you are not sure where it will lead. Perhaps you are choosing to wait for another person to make a move or decision and this contributes to your uncertainty.
In rare instances, drugs, alcohol or personality aberrations can be the cause of your confusion or weakened vitality. Ongoing addictions can be particularly detrimental this year since this is a time when your body would tend to be overly sensitive to all medications, even prescription drugs. For this reason, alternative medical treatments might be more beneficial. When living on the higher Neptune level, confusion, indecision, and drug-related problems are unlikely. You are much more likely to act on intuition, instinctively flowing with the Higher Self.
