Question: Is it the Moon-Neptune aspect that makes you want to forget the past and run away from the real world?
Despite what you may think, a Moon-Neptune aspect will not help you “forget” the past. If you’re a Moon-Neptune type, you might feel a pang of nostalgia, and even find a certain mystic allure in what has passed in your life. Feelings of loss, despair, and sadness may have taken over your entire being, and as a result, you may feel the need to hide some of the truth. You still have a shot at redemption, hazy past and all. Some people have the “moving away” solution, which is to go as far away from their family of origin as they can. However, even if they do this, their unresolved issues may still surface and haunt them in their new environment.
Floating on the Ocean of Emotion
You are highly attuned to the mood swings of others, thanks to the Moon-Neptune aspect, and you seek solace in private reflection. If you’re naturally introverted, that’s okay; you don’t have to force yourself to keep up a lively social life all the time. Individuals with an abundance of water in their birth charts may feel the need to “dial it back” from the world by turning off the phone, withdrawing into their own world, and spending more time alone.
The Moon and Neptune together can leave you feeling emotionally drained and “wide open.” Poor emotional and psychological boundaries characterise you. Moon-Neptune in your chart may mean running away from your problems, forgetting your problems, or covering your problems with dreams, fantasies, and illusions. This constant feeling of guilt or these odd sensations when remembering the past could be the result of being over-tuned to others’ frequencies.
With the Moon and Neptune in an angular relationship in your horoscope, you need to disconnect from the pressures of daily life in order to tap into deeper wells of inspiration, creativity, and imagination. There is an urgent need to reacquaint oneself with something beyond the personal when the threshold between the inner and outer worlds narrows. As long as you can, you’ll want to hold on to this feeling of being surrounded by love and security. You might think you don’t belong here if you’re “too sensitive,” which can lead to feelings of isolation from other people and the world. The key to maintaining a healthy equilibrium is to keep in touch with the outside world while also making time in the evening for introspective thinking, artistic appreciation, and quiet reflection. You are well-aware of your own vulnerability and the fact that your feelings have the potential to become overwhelming. You are floating aimlessly on a sea of your own imagination. With a Moon-Neptune aspect you can be emotionally healthy and stable direct this energy into creative pursuits like the arts, psychology, and dream analysis, while those who are not may resort to drugs or alcohol to alter their moods.
Due to the Moon-Neptune natal aspect, you may feel emotionally overwhelmed at times. It’s understandable that getting away from places that are too familiar and remind you of sad times would help you focus on your family and give you a fresh start. Create your “ideal” home away from toxic environments, and you may find that you heal incredibly as a Moon-Neptune. You should try to make the most of the space you have at home rather than becoming overly perfectionistic and disappointed because nothing can live up to an ideal. Some of these measures may have been necessary for your own safety, but there are many ways to find relief from the pain without denying or ignoring the past. Forgetting the past can be therapeutic for those who have experienced severe trauma. While there are many methods available for remembering the past, there are just as many for moving on. Therefore, you should take your time when revisiting about your past, and look for ways to strengthen your emotions in the present.
