Toxic family members. Just looking at the words brings up so many thoughts and realities.
Why does it have to be this way? Why is it such a natural thing to feel intense animosity towards the family? Are we not supposed to feel only love for these people?
And if these people are toxic, are we supposed to stick around for the unending ego and pain they throw around, especially at us?
We are born into families and the people we come to live with are people we did not ask for, nor did we choose to be ever-present characters in our ongoing story.
Just because it’s ‘family’ does it mean we have to love them, or be there for them, or, or, or take their cruelty and awfulness and let it infect our souls?
Moon opposite Neptune will let us know that we have no obligation whatsoever to hold on to and protect family member that has gone completely toxic on us.
Just because this person is considered family — no matter how high or low they are on the hierarchal chain of family members, if all they can bring is noxious poison, then it’s time to let them go. Permanently.

There is nothing you love more than family and good times with the people you love. Until of course, Uncle Toxic stops by to give a lecture on how everyone in this family is not equal; some are golden gifts from the heavens, and some are hellhound wastrels that exist only to waste their lives.
Who needs this? It’s always that one family member, the toxic one, who feels the need to dump on everyone’s head. It may be time to ditch the hell out of this person.
Moon opposite Neptune will push for an ending, and you should listen. There is nothing about this person, Aunt Poison, that is worth listening to anymore. They give only judgment and verbal punishment and not only are they are huge bore about it. They’re one hundred percent wrong. All the time!
