Neptune and Chiron have met on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Neptune is a lovely lady in sea-green, aqua and deep blue colors, with a long, flowing skirt. Chiron is a centaur, rustic-looking and worn, but kind.
Chiron: Who are we healing today, Neptune?
Neptune: All of them.
Neptune: You heard me: all of them. All human beings.
Chiron: How are we going to do that?
Neptune: By getting one person to stand in as Everyman. Or Everywoman. Doesn’t matter.
Chiron: So one human being gets healed and the whole human race benefits? Sounds like a Jesus complex.
Neptune: He was one of my own. He was very good at standing for everyone.
Chiron: How are we going to find someone that. . . cosmic?
Neptune: All I have to do is this.
She waves her hand over the waters and drops rise up and become a mist. The mist flows over the land, leaving dewy sparkles on the trees and rocks. Soon a Human Being stumbles forth from the trees, climbing the cliff to the place where the gods wait.
Human: You called?
Neptune: You’re one of mine, aren’t you?
Human: (nodding) Can’t really help it. Everybody calls me a flake, but it’s because I’m lost in one of your dreams all the time. I can’t seem to stay alert. I have what’s called “an active imagination.”
Neptune: That’s right. Now try this!
She sprinkles fairy dust all over the Human, who begins to appear as a sort of shiny blur.
Neptune: Your turn, Chiron.
Chiron: Don’t mind if I do.
Producing a bow and arrow from somewhere, Chiron takes careful aim and shoots the Human in the heart.
Neptune: You should thank Chiron for that.
Human: What on earth do you mean?
Neptune: That’s a primal wound he just gave you. It’s a gift. It will make your soul evolve faster.
Human: (sarcastically) Gee thanks, just what I always wanted.
Chiron: I just can’t get any respect.
Neptune does something funny with her hand in the air, and then the Human appears as even more of a blur.
Neptune: (to Chiron) Oh, by the way, you’ll need these.
Neptune hands Chiron some special glasses. They have a rose tint to them. Chiron puts them on. The Human Being now appears entirely different, and in fact is hidden behind a huge pink cloud that’s where her heart should be. That cloud gets wispy around the edges, then tendrils start to form, which curl outward and reach in every direction. The tendrils multiply until there are tens, hundreds, thousands, then millions of them. The Human Being has become a nexus of love, a heart for everyone who is alive. There is a look of deep peace on the Human Being’s face.
Neptune: Ok, I’ve connected this one with all other humans. Your turn again.
Chiron rummages around in a bag he’s wearing on his back. It seems to be filled with medicines, remedies, herbs, medical equipment and other stuff. He pulls out a small bottle.
Chiron: Stick out your tongue.
The Human Being obediently does so.
Chiron: This will sting a little.
Using a dropper, Chiron allows one drop of the stuff to land on the Human Being’s tongue. The Human Being begins shaking from head to toe, and a change in color cascades down the giant pink aura surrounding her, filling it with a stormy grey, which is just as quickly followed by a restoration of pink, now a deeper, richer hue. The grey cascades out the tendrils, finding its way into the heart of every person alive, and is followed by the warmer, deeper pink. It is as if the whole planet shudders.
Neptune: Wow—that was cool!
Chiron, proudly: Thanks! You’re pretty cool yourself!
Neptune: What now?
Chiron: I think we can leave this to cook for a while. Our work here is done.
Neptune takes Chiron’s arm and together they walk off over the water.
Chiron and Neptune have been traveling together in our skies for 18 months, bringing spiritual healing and community in their wake. Now it is November of 2010 and their conjunction is coming to a close. Here are some posts I’ve written about it:
