neptune in pisces

Neptune rules Pisces, entering that sign on February 2012.

[Neptune's first ingress into Pisces: 04-Apr-2011 @ 13:50UT; Neptune re-entered Aquarius 05-Aug-2011 @ 02:53UT during Retrograde; Neptune second ingress into Pisces: 03-Feb-2012 @ 19:02UT]. [Fomalhaut-Neptune Exact Conjunctions]

i think Neptune strongly influences Gemini New Moon & will do so for quite some time. specifically, it influences the China/Oceana conjunction. Neptune doesn't aspect the new moon, but here's where i think it's going to influence things (take this with a grain of salt though, i'm a pisces moon): if Neptune aspects your natal moon, or if it's the house of your moon &c, that's where you want to look. on the Gemini New Moon chart:

Neptune {05PI22} is 257°21'38" from New Moon {18GE01} @ EON-27 (Phase Arc 257° ~ Waning Bi-Septile) Transformation, Conscious Agent, Cosmic Empowerment, Harmonizing § KEYNOTE: The cosmos accepts and protects those dedicated to the path of transformation, empowering them to illuminate the way to a creative new day § DYNAMIC: the all-revealing Light of Wholeness.

on the mandala, Neptune's Sabian symbol: Pisces 5-6° A Parade Of Army Officers In Full Dress § KEYNOTE: The dedication of human beings to the service of their community, and the assurance that it will be emotionally sustained by the people at large § Keyword is GROUP-RESPONSIBILITY.

my Neptune is located in this chart's underworld, 3°11'1" from GNM Saturn: Neptune 02SC20℞ and 134°18'53" from Gemini New Moon @ EON-13 [Scorpio 2-3° A House-Raising Party In A Small Village Enlists The Neighbors' Cooperation].

my natal Saturn is near my descendant & 47°17'53" from GNM Saturn & 9°36'1" from GNM Vertex: Saturn 22SG49℞ and 184°47'46" from Gemini New Moon @ EON-19 [Sagittarius 22-23° A Group Of Immigrants As They Fulfill The Requirements Of Entrance Into The New Country].

At Last: Neptune enters Pisces, Eric Francis


For one thing, Jupiter and Chiron are still in a sextile from Taurus to Pisces, respectively – and each has a strong association with the other’s current placement. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces; Chiron was discovered while it was in Taurus – right in the degree Jupiter now occupies. It adds up to a lot of strong Pisces energy all at once, but the sextile makes it accessible, and Jupiter in earthy Taurus provides some real grounding for it. Chiron provides a complimentary grounding in the form of focus and a consciously applied visioning power.

The configuration, with Neptune blending into the edges of the aspect, translates to applied creativity for a purpose. Remember: unlike some aspects that can feel like a kick in the ass and others that seem to slide right by, a sextile is an energy you can actually use. And just in case you needed an extra boost in that, Uranus is right at the midpoint between Jupiter and Chiron, urging you to reinvent yourself.

We tend to think of Pluto and Uranus as the only revolutionary players. But guess what aspect was exact when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989? Saturn conjunct Neptune in Capricorn. I mean, it was exact: When Günter Schabowski [The journalist question that fractured the Wall], the party boss in East Berlin and the spokesman for the SED Politburo, had the task of announcing new, looser regulations for private travel between East and West Germany – and mistakenly stated that the changes were effective immediately – Saturn was within one quarter of one degree of an exact conjunction with Neptune. Within four days, the conjunction was precise to the arc minute* – and the wall was being torn down, chunk by chunk, along with a couple generations’ worth of psychology.

comment :: "The point about the Berlin Wall is especially important because Saturn was also conjunct Neptune on Neptune’s discovery chart. Thank you for demonstrating the historical fact that Saturn potentiates our awareness of Neptune."

Neptune Entering Pisces - Changing Mythologies and World Stories
Robert Wilkinson


Just be alert to vague assertions, unclear thinking or motives, or those who want you to believe what they believe without it being grounded or even true. There’s already a lot of rumor and speculation in the collective consciousness that is without substance, “sound and fury signifying nothing.” If Neptune rules dreams and fogs, get your “glamor dispelling mechanism” in shape, along with your ability to do three (or preferably four) point "Mental lighting," since that is the only way to dispel shadows, you know!

Jupiter is the planet of story-telling. But I think that Neptune, the planet of the Imagination, is the ocean [China conjunct Oceana, Gemini New Moon] out of which the stories are picked. Neptune is that place where consciousness and matter merge, where it becomes obvious that you cannot separate human consciousness and the universe that consciousness is always trying to understand and describe.

The chart for Neptune’s Ingress into Pisces has six planets, including a New Moon, in Aries. This suggests to me that, while our basic mythology may not change, there will still be some big changes to the way we see the world. Neptune in Capricorn, which began in the mid-1980s, was an era in which money (Capricorn) became fashionable (Neptune). Neptune in Aquarius, which began in the late 1990s, began the Internet Age: Aquarius is computers and Neptune is the interconnectedness of the web. Neptune in Pisces. Who knows?
