Especially when Pluto may be pulling any Metaphorical rug out from under you. Have you got the message yet? Neptune is helping us to see our illusions and how our experience is subjective. Dissolving the boundaries Neptune shows us our unconscious and through all the chaos a natural magical order. One of infinite potential and possibility. But we have to bring awareness to our thoughts, ideas and dreams because they ultimately shape our reality. Listen and trust your intuition for it is here to guide you. Pluto in Capricorn has been making its presence known. If it is time for something to come to a close it is doing so not so quietly or it is crumbling before your eyes. Capricorn (and Saturn) symbolize reality and the boundary to the physical world. Which is undergoing a deep transformation (Pluto). Try not to resist what is. Be present with the feedback from the universe. We may be feeling sensitive but receptive. We have the potential to be moving forward in the school of emotions.
