A couple of days ago, more or less, I posted a series of quotations about facets of Neptune’s meanings. (See Neptunian Musings—Mysterious, but Strangely Apt Quotations) Just now, transiting Neptune is very strong—but incredibly muddled—as its conjunctions to Jupiter and Chiron make it especially hard to sort out. If you know what I mean. As planets go, it’s the most intangible, elusive, hazy, and confusing. Describing it becomes more difficult the more you struggle. And yet those of us who write about astrology are honor bound to try.
Who do you think has done the best job? I’m holding a contest to find the best written description of the planet Neptune. Drag your underlined and dog-eared astrology books down off the shelves, or look on the net among your bookmarks of blogs and websites. If your quote is ruled the best, you win a copy of one of my ebooks—your choice from Moon Maven Publications.
Here are the rules, but since a blog is an ever-malleable medium, I could arbitrarily add more at any time if I think of them.
- Entries should be 100 words. More or less. Depending.
- My relatives are not eligible. They don’t speak astrologese anyhow.
- Friends are welcome. Former lovers are not.
- All entries should be in English or Vulcan. More or less. Depending.
- You may enter as many times as you like. Or I like.
- Multiple entries of the same quote are unlikely, but first comes first.
- The contest ends when I say it ends. Or possibly before.
- The number of prizes is a closely-kept secret. Ignore the rumors and speculations.
- The real rules are written in disappearing ink. If you want a copy, send a telepathic message.
Type your entry into the comment section, and include the author, title, and the page or web address where you found it. Channeled quotations and parodies are also acceptable, if clearly marked. You can, of course, quote Moi (she sez modestly), although it wouldn’t be fair for you to win. But then, how fair is life, really?
Are you wondering if this contest is real? It is, at least in my reality. Individual realities may vary.
