As the veil becomes ever thinner, between this nearer realm and those beyond, you are given another opportunity to dissolve away the lesser and discover something greater, to question what is of value within you and what is of value between us.
Venus is finishing up her sojourn in Scorpio, where your experience of depths and passions, your unions and transformations, have moved you further into the mystery that is found between "I" and "Thou".
To reach that crossing point, to truly form that special "we" has required much of one another; you have sacrificed for each other, giving up the lesser values to create the greater shared. But a danger is always there, that you might go too far, surrender what makes you "you", and so achieve the "we" only to lose yourself.
Neptune in Aquarius provides a way to understand, to form the necessary counterpoint; she offers a gentle reminder that the whole point of moving into a greater, more conscious relationship beyond yourself was really so that you would come that much closer to yourself!
Neptune in Aquarius sings the song of Individuality that is born from, finds its life in and remains faithful through friendship; that the way to yourself is met in fellowship, it is founded and formed by your companions who journey with you, outward and inward on this river of Life-Consciousness-Spirit.
Neptune reminds you now that the sacrifice required of you was to give up the lesser and not "true to you" values that you might have been attached to...those peripheral values were instead leading you away from your authentic path of self-realization. By moving into Union, by that frictional engagement with the other, you each forced the other to confront the question "what is more me and what is less me?"...and choose.
If you were attempting this with someone whose essential values were not aligned with your own, there is no way it would not end in self-denial and loss. The greater effort you made, the more you sacrificed, the more you would diminish yourself, lose yourself and the other too.
Instead, there must exist a core of shared values that you come together upon, some already present values (and many waiting to be re-discovered), which form that shining silver chord of companionship (forged long ago) that is re-awakened and energized by your return to one another. For this is not the first time, nor the last, and the love that is there is waiting...
Then, with this enduring love, you can each turn from the peripheral, sacrifice those lesser attachments, while you honor the greater within and between you. The mystery is revealed as you each become more yourself in and through one another than you ever could by yourselves alone...
Today, celebrate the mystery of your journey to yourself that is found through the hearts of one another...
Let go of your lesser sense of yourself and discover the greater waiting to be realized in the beauty, majesty and mystery of your transcendent life of being one of the ones of the One.
Love yourself, love one another...and repeat.
