Summary: This Neptune retrograde phase will give us an opportunity to refill our emotional tanks, giving us a sense of fulfillment, a.k.a. personal well-being. This universe will be assisting us in this by taking us away from "craziness" and delusion and by introducing new beginnings through reliable situations that provide us with groundedness, security, stability and a firm foundation we can build on. When our tanks are then full again, we can start to give to others without it draining us because in the next 5 months, we will also have learned to not primarily give in the hopes of receiving emotional gratification from another person in the form of love, appreciation, approval, attention, etc. Our motives will be more altruistic than ulterior and therefore we will not be giving our power away, allowing our tanks to maintain their levels.
