This moon represents the oceans and rain. The energy of this full moon makes us feel like change and like getting a new look. Psychic ability and intuition is at an all time high. The call of the ocean is strong as it brings about magic moments and recharges our psychic and healing energy. Dreams, visions, signs and symbols are strong during this time. This is the moon mansion of imagination, idealism, illusion, dreams and spirituality. This energy can cause one to feel sleepy. There may be an increased need to be on your own and to break away from restricting situations.
This psychic full moon falls in Aquarius and specifically in the celestial mansion of Neptune (Poseidon).
Neptune / Aquarius is associated with water, rain, floods, fountains, electricity and shopping. This mansion is ruled by the god known as the 'Water Bearer' or 'Water Pourer.' Water brings and sustains life. Water is powerful and sacred. This mansion brings rain. Water is symbolic of the collective unconsciousness, the sea of creation or consciousness. This mansion is ruled by the 'Dragon's Head'. Rahu magnifies everything and makes it larger than life and therefore the down-pour of water can result in floods.
Neptune (Poseidon / Aquarius / Water-Bearer / Shatabisha) Associations - out-pour of water, sky-watcher, astrologer, water-bearer, healing, horses. Finding a better, more holistic environment, in which to heal. This mansion is about healing the human condition, which comprises of mind, body and soul. Now is a good time to see a doctor and for taking medication.
Neptune's Trident was given to Neptune by the Giants of Lemuria (Rutas / Mu / Kumari Kandam). These giants had a 3rd psychic eye. The trident is also the trishula of Lord Shiva (Hindu).
Its function is 3 fold: to create, maintain or destroy. It is a magical weapon used to smite or bless and make your wishes come true. It is also used to destroy bad things in our lives, eg bad karma, bad luck and bad health. In nature it manifests new bodies of water but can also cause earthquakes. To receive its blessings one should fast and meditate or at least burn a candle and surround yourself with candles, fruit, flowers, music and incense.
Neptune: Fog and Veil
-just because you cannot see it, does not mean it is not there.
-can confuse time and space.
-positive - creative, romantic, psychic, spiritual, healing, water, liquids.
-negative - alcoholism, substance abuse, selective attention, unrealistic, lies.
A good example of Neptune's 'Fog and Veil effect' is a folktale from the British coastal town, Great Yarmouth. A representation of Neptune was build there in 1817. Because of the fog they didn't realize that they build the statue facing in-land instead of outwards to the sea. The builders were killed for their mistake. The Norfolk Naval Pillar is 144 feet or 44 meters high. It is Lord Nelson's Monument with Brittania on top holding a trident. Horse racing used to take place nearby.

Another Neptunian tale from Great Yarmouth is that giant naval guys would get off their warships to grab the much smaller young men to take them with to war. To escape the giants easily, the streets were build very narrow, so the youngsters could escape, as the giants then struggled to get through the streets.
Another example: 26 February 2017: Confusion at Oscars as 'La La Land' was announced best picture, whereas the real winner was 'Moonlight'.
