Pisces/12th House/Neptune

It' seems to me that if Neptune is prominent in your chart, or Pisces or the 12th house, you might find these quotes resonant. Or if planets are passing through Pisces or the 12th house, or transiting Neptune is triggering natal planets, these may bring some understanding to your experience... possibly. Not that Pisces and the 12th house and Neptune are interchangeable, but they bear the same energetic signature of transcendence, flow, connecting to Mystery and expanding consciousness.

Leonard Woolf (with a Neptune/Chiron conjunction in Taurus) experienced “that sense of profound, passive, cosmic despair, the melancholy of a human being, eager for happiness and beauty, powerless in the face of a hostile universe.” Leonard Woolf: A Biography, Victoria Glendinning

“[Leonard Woolf] wrote in his last book that, under the eye of eternity, nothing human was of the slightest importance. But in one’s personal life, ‘certain things are of immense importance: human relations, happiness, truth, beauty or art, justice and mercy.’ And even though what he had tried to do politically was ‘completely futile and ineffective and unimportant, for me personally, it was right and important that I should do it'….’Nothing matters, and everything matters.’” - Leonard Woolf: A Biography, Victoria Glendinning

“Yet it is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top.” Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own (Virginia Woolf's Moon, Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto and Saturn were in the 12th house)

“... for clearly the mind has so great a power of concentrating at any point at any moment that it seems to have no single state of being.” Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

“What is meant by ‘reality?’ It would seem to be something very erratic, very undependable - now to be found in a dusty road, now in a scrap of newspaper in the street, now in a daffodil in the sun. It lights up a group in a room and stamps some casual saying. It overwhelms one walking home beneath the stars and makes the silent world more real than the world of speech - and then there it is again in an omnibus in the uproar of Piccadilly. Sometimes, too, it seems to dwell in shapes too far away for us to discern what their nature is. But whatever it touches, it fixes and makes permanent. That is what remains over when the skin of the day has been cast into the hedge; that is what is left of past time and of our loves and hates.” Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

“I have no circumference; only my inviolable center: L[eonard] to wit.” Virginia Woolf’s diary, 30 Oct 1938, quoted in Leonard Woolf: Biography by Victoria Glendinning
