Scorpio 1-2 A Broken Bottle And Spilled Perfume

Pam's partner has Neptune on this degree. She describes his experience below:
My partners Neptune is Scorpio 2, this degree, has for him come in a myriad of different forms. His life had been full of family dramas, secrets that connect people for the wrong reason, communication through innuendoes (3rd house), internal family sexual and emotional abuse. All of this which he kept under wraps until he turned 42 and finally the perfume bottle broke and the perfume spilled out. As Neptune is the esoteric ruler of his Cancer ascendent (A Storm in a Canyon), this release of these secrets has left him virtually alone in his quest for transformation. The perfume was not sweet and innocent, smelling of spring and summer but more a scent which his family members steered clear of, especially his siblings (3rd house).
As when anything breaks and spills open, there is a need to discern what is yours and what is someone else's. Unfortunately for many years he wore the blame (the scent sticking to him), as many children of abusive parents do.
Somehow children's innocence is used against them, leaving them with misplaced guilt from the perpetrators of their abuse. He has travelled the path of trying to heal this early childhood trauma, through reading books, doing healing courses, visiting practitioners, joining the Hare Krishnas, all which seemed to take him further away from the wound.
His life turning into a constant feeling of rejection, pain and aloneness. This began to change when he finally spoke to the abusers, again spilling the perfume back to its rightful owner (the marking scent of an animal tracked back to the animal).
As his Neptune sextiles his Sun,Pluto,Mercury conjunction in the 1st house, it has been a process of learning to stand in your own (the aloneness - 1st house) power (Pluto) and speak your personal truth (Mercury). As the planet is Neptune it has been a very slow and at times confusing process to navigate.
The degree is 2, so for him to move toward the Scorpio 3 (A House Raising) he needed to spill the perfume and transform the scent into his own personal soul essence (Cancer ascendent) of powerful presence in speaking the truth. (The Sun,Pluto,Mercury conjunction in the 1st house).
He has a highly tuned sense of scent, at the time we met I owned a candle shop in which he was attracted by the smell to enter the door. He is now in the process of Raising his House which is more in keeping with his own essence, not that of his childhood.
