A long-running configuration of Neptune — squaring the Nodes of the Moon and creating a t-square — will perfect on January 26, 2021. Now is the time to understand that our past (South Node in Sagittarius) is just a reference point that can inform our journey ahead (North Node in Gemini) as we continuously consult our imagination (Neptune in Pisces), and navigate our path to the future.
Neptune is in his rulership of Pisces at 18 degrees. Neptune went retrograde at 20 degrees of Pisces at the end June 2020 and stayed retrograde for almost five months. He retrograded all the way back to 18 degrees, where he has remained since early October 2020. On January 26, Neptune will move into the 19th degree of Pisces and exactly square both the North Node in Gemini (our collective destiny) and the South Node in Sagittarius (our collective karma) — both at 19 degrees of the Gemini/Sagittarius axis, which is about information and freedom.
This is a very important time for us individually, and collectively for humanity, but it all begins with what’s going on inside of you. Neptune rules the 12th house, where your emotions, compassion, and imagination reside. This t-square invites you to consider your thoughts, hopes, and dreams for yourself and for the world.
What is a T-Square?
Basically, the t-square configuration is an isosceles triangle, which is simply a triangle with two sides that are the same length. So, you have a 90 degree angle, another 90 degree angle, both known as “squares,” and a 180 degree opposition connecting them.
Squares indicate inner conflict and oppositions reflect outer conflict. If you apply this to Neptune squaring both of the Nodes — who are always in opposition — then this t-square is about releasing the collective past in order to envision a new collective future. The question is: how do we do that when Neptune keeps fogging up the road ahead?
Envisioning a new collective future can be difficult when we are so divided from our past, but let’s look at the houses and signs associated with this t-square.
- Our future (North Node) lies in Gemini/3rd house, ruled by Mercury, who dictates how we communicate and perceive.
- Our past (South Node) lies in Sagittarius/9th house, ruled by Jupiter, who expands our knowledge, our experiences, and our beliefs.
- Our reality (Neptune) lies in Pisces/12th house, ruled by Neptune, who can cloud our judgment, hide the truth of our reality, but also allow us to create new worlds.
The 3rd, 9th, and 12th houses are to do with the mind, higher wisdom, and the psyche. Basically, we are all “tripping” through the universe of our imagined reality at the moment, but it’s time to get serious. We have an opportunity to effect tremendous change by shifting our focus.
Remember, your focus determines your reality. Instead of looking in that rearview mirror all the time…keep your eyes on the road ahead so you can better navigate the journey before you. This will require inner focus, discernment, and imagination working in harmony to shift from the narrative of the past to the potential of the future.
