Neptune entered Pisces Friday the 3rd of February at 7.03pm GMT, 2.03pm EST!!
He will remain there for 14 years, until 2026.
Neptune is the ruler of Pisces and therefore is entering his own sign. Neptune and Pisces symbolise compassion, unconditional love, inspiration, imagination, transcendence, devotion, sacrifice, empathy and connection to the divine, to name but a few of their qualities. On the other hand they also represent illusion/delusion, fear and escapism.
What might happen when Neptune enters his own sign? Personally I am both excited and intrigued as it will make people more aware that we all come from the same melting pot and are not as different as our ego’s make us out to be. Our egos would wish us to think that we are all separate, but that is not so. “One love” by Bob Marley comes to mind when I think of Neptune in Pisces. Anybody who is on the spiritual path will find Neptune’s transit through Pisces very rewarding indeed. Those who are not may well find themselves more drawn to spiritual matters at this time as Neptune dissolves the ego and allows our higher selves to take the reins.
Artists and healers will find it easier to tap in to the vast well of inspiration that Neptune in Pisces offers, as our connection to the divine will be much stronger and our egos less defined. As such, our intuition will be heightened and our connection to each other more pronounced. Don’t be surprised if you have more psychic and telepathic experiences in the next few years! Neptune rules the subtle energies that you can’t see but are ever present nonetheless.
Empathy and compassion will prevail during this time, and our hearts will be more open to the suffering of the world. Neptune dissolves boundaries, and could possibly break down barriers between countries and classes, reminding us that we are all from the same melting pot – all souls who have hopes and fears and just want to be loved. It is as simple as that. The last time Neptune was in Pisces Dickens was alive and was very much on the side of the lower classes. He brought to light social injustices and showed us through his writing how greed and materialism destroys the spirit. Just read or watch A Christmas Carol and you will receive a poignant reminder of what is truly important in life.
Of course there is another side to all of this. While this time brings the potential for higher states of consciousness and transcendence through meditation or spiritual practice, some may seek to escape reality through drugs, alcohol and even virtual reality. Confusion and lack of clarity are also possible, for while Neptune may dissolve our egos and shift our consciousness, we could also be left wondering who we really are and what is it all about anyway?! Some may feel a little like the ground is moving under their feet as the change of perspective leaves them feeling quite disorientated.
Illusion/disillusionment may also be prevalent at this time for Neptune has a tendency to put up smoke screens, and as such all may not be as it seems! And while he can greatly stimulate our imaginations this can also be to our detriment as they then run wild, creating all sorts of needless fears and insecurities! And as we all know, the scenarios that our minds can come up with are so often far worse than the reality of whatever we are facing!
I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the years ahead as Neptune moves through Pisces. There is the potential to achieve states of bliss and feel more connected to our fellow man than ever before. I am quite sure that people’s imaginations, empathy and intuition will be greatly stimulated and that our capacity to create and heal will be heightened. Our hearts should be more open to others as we truly come to know unconditional love and compassion on a global level.
Combine this energy with Pluto in Capricorn breaking down societal structures and forcing us to live according to our souls’ purpose and Uranus in Aries radical, revolutionary energy and we are in for quite a ride in the next few years!! Pluto and Uranus are going to form a tense square to each other which will shake society and the world to the core, changing life as we know it, so we should be very grateful that Neptune in Pisces is now adding himself to the recipe, ensuring that it all happens in the spirit of compassion and love.
