Neptune in Pisces
Neptune in Pisces is a very powerful pairing due to the fact that in astrology, Neptune rules the astrology birth sign of Pisces. Therefore, Neptune is naturally at home in the Pisces star sign. On Feb 3, 2012, Neptune officially went into Pisces and will stay there until the year 2026.
So, what can we expect from this potent pairing over the next 14 years?
Well, this combination will undoubtedly help bring about some much needed changes in society (along with a few other powerful planets in astrology). The changes that will occur, however, will be much more subtle and gradual than the current placement of Uranus in Aries which can be quite radical and revolutionary in its nature.
In contrast, Neptune in Pisces is more like the pounding of the ocean waves against the rocky coastline. Thus, just like the waves shape the beach over a long period of time, Neptune in Pisces will slowly but surely transform society by dissolving what no longer serves our greatest good.
The most succinct way to describe this energy is to simply say that Neptune in Pisces is a deeply spiritual union. Neptune energy is otherworldly in its nature and, when we’re purposefully aligned with its vibration, it can give us some potent glimpses into the great beyond. This is even doubly true when Neptune is in Pisces.
Thus, this period presents an outstanding time to connect deeply with our spirituality through daily spiritual practice via meditation, prayer, Tai Chi, yoga, or simply by spending time in quiet contemplation to sort through our thoughts and emotions. If this is done in a disciplined manner, this potent transit will truly be a rewarding time for personal growth and wisdom.
In addition, this will inevitably lead to daily spiritual insights that make us much more aware of the interconnectedness of all that is. This, in turn, will gently inspire us to stretch ourselves by having more faith in our ability to connect with Spirit and to be more fully aware of our ability to manifest what we focus upon.
Thus, this period will be marked by the fact that more and more people will seek to find greater meaning in their lives than simply living for material success. This is especially true with the challenging economic times the entire world is currently facing due to the ongoing transit of Pluto in Capricorn. This transit is working hand-in-hand with the Neptune in Pisces transit to help us to clearly put money in its proper perspective.
This Neptune transit asks us to deeply consider the following: money is certainly important in this world, but is it more important than serving our fellow man/woman, saving the planet, or making time for our loved ones? Perhaps it’s time to create the world in a new vision of what it can be instead of sticking to a dead formula that obviously doesn’t make the world a better place for any of us.
As this transit of Neptune in Pisces progresses, there will be a greater yearning for people to connect with their spirituality in a more direct and meaningful way. Thus, spirituality as a whole will see a great resurgence.
Historically speaking, Neptune in Pisces typically brings about the fall of spiritual and/or religious teachings that no longer serve humanity’s deepest needs. For instance, Neptune was in Pisces when the pagan gods of the Romans became stale to the masses and was fervently replaced with the Christian Gospel that spread like wildfire throughout the world.
In a very similar fashion, Neptune in Pisces will bring new forms of spirituality along with new age spiritual leaders that will usher in more empowering and enlightening truths to free us from the rigidity of modern day religious thought.
Neptune in Pisces can also bring critical crises to the forefront regarding our oceans and how the human species has neglected to take responsibility for the pollution it has caused. In addition, there could also be serious issues revolving around water shortages in some parts of the world and flooding in other parts. Global warming issues will be a glaringly obvious challenge that humanity must face as the polar ice caps continue to melt at an alarming rate.
People that are highly attuned to the energy of this Neptune transit have the increased potential to become very psychically attuned and quite sensitive to their environment. There will be a strong need for them to disconnect from the energetic vibrations of the people and the places that are around on a regular basis and recharge their batteries. On a more positive note, psychics and other spiritually gifted people will become more accepted in mainstream society than ever before.
Lastly, the dark side of this placement can indicate that people who refuse to tap into their spirituality could experience feelings of total hopelessness due to the harsh realities of the world. In short, people who have a powerful connection to this transit may feel more sensitive and powerless than ever and have a need to escape from the world via escapism. Thus, there could be new designer drugs aimed at these people that promise some sort of ecstasy. There could also be increased temptations to escape reality through the ever increasing technologies of 3D television/movies and virtual reality video games.
Ultimately, this powerful astrological combo has the high potential of helping us to slowly but surely erase the many boundaries that humanity has created to divide itself. The message of Neptune in Pisces is abundantly clear: we are all one. That, in and of itself, is the message that will be become more and more obvious as this transit progresses.
