Neptune in Pisces

Neptune’s natural home is in Pisces, intensifying the spiritual energy of this planetary transit. Neptune is the ruler of the underworld. You can choose to bask in the intriguing depths of your soul, or sink into the murkiness of your fears, addictions and resentments. This phase began on April 4, 2011 and lasted through September 16, 2011, and after a retrograde cycle, continues from February 3, 2012 for fourteen more years.

On the challenge side, Neptune in Pisces deals with collective insanity, fears and phobias and the Savior complex. This is when you are told to do certain things and if you do what you have been told you will be saved. People become hypnotized with fear and follow along to their detriment.

As Neptune began its fifteen-year tour through Pisces, we may see horrible truths captured by a cell phone. And instead of entertainment's shock value, compassionate Pisces calls our attention to the real world crises happening around the globe. This will be used for good, however.

We will see transformation on a broad, societal scale. As tasteless reality shows fall from grace, a new group will be blessed; mystics, intuitive healers, poets, dancers, dreamers, people on missions of charity, and all the artistic and compassionate areas ruled by Pisces will come to the forefront. People who know how to dance between the light and the shadows of human conscious will be the new world heroes. Therapists and energy healers may soon become as ubiquitous as personal trainers.

With Neptune in Pisces, true masters will stand out again even if they are using a digital medium for their precious and painstaking processes. Some things simply can’t be created with the two-second addition of a digital filter. Work that moves people through a multisensory experience will be the new rage. Lights, music, visuals, aromas, and new dimensions; all apart of the new extremes.

Vampires may go out and the mythical creatures come in as fairies, angels, mermaids and other sea creatures will dominate the cultural landscape, influencing the shows you watch, the clothes you wear, and the music you listen to. Your spiritual guidance counselor will be more in demand and in need these coming years.

With Neptune ruling the seas and Pisces being a water sign, blue will become the new green. Disasters in water are indicated. The atrocities left behind from the BP spill have opened up conversations about the polluted ocean. There are more “inconvenient truths” to deal with when it comes to conserving and creating clean and safe water, preserving underwater wildlife and keeping beaches safe for swimming. (The documentary Blue Gold shows how big corporations are already capitalizing on this.) Cleaning up of the wreckage of hurricanes and floods will continue to consume resources, but scientists may invent creative new ways to clean up these messes and also new ways to predict storms in the coming decade.
