Part I: Neptune in Pisces, 2011-2025

by Lynn Hayes

Art by Muddy Melly on Deviant Art

To do justice to this topic I will serialize this article in two parts. Neptune entered Pisces on April 4th, beginning a new 14-year cycle of Neptune traveling through its own sign.

By its very nature, Neptune is difficult to talk about.  It tends to be evasive and dreamy, and full of imagination and artistic creativity.  It also can become lost in the illusion of fantasy and encourage sacrifice of the individual self, sometimes for a higher purpose and sometimes in a codependent loss of Self.  In its highest form Neptune inspires us to transcend the material world and connect deeply and directly with an experience of the Divine.

Before Neptune was discovered, Pisces was ruled by Jupiter.  Jupiter, being one of the personal planets, operates on the worldly plane where Neptune, a transpersonal planet of transformation, inspires us to go beyond this world.  Where Neptune governs the direct experience of transcendence, Jupiter presides over the more intellectual construction of what gives life meaning.  Jupiter therefore is more concerned with religion and theology where Neptune deals with matters of spiritual experience.  Both planets also have a hand in popular culture.  Neptune is found in areas of artistry and entertainment, where Jupiter is more involved with the actual media through which entertainment is  delivered to the masses.

With Neptune moving into Pisces, there is the potential for tremendous spiritual transformation, but also mass delusion such as has never been seen before.  The last time Neptune entered Pisces was in February 1848, shortly after its discovery in 1845.   1848 is the year that the gold rush began in California, leading one reporter to complain that everyone in the state was […]

Will Neptune in Pisces Bring the Legalization of Marijuana?

It looks like we’re heading in that direction:  “The Justice Department this week announced that it will no longer seek to prosecute people using, prescribing, or distributing pot for medical purposes, as long as they’re in compliance with local law. However, regulations in some medical marijuana states remain murky.”
Murky sounds like Neptune, whose penchant for transcendent experiences encompasses both the sublime and spiritual and the confused and deluded.  An argument can be made the marijuana straddes both of these realms and can be used for spiritual insight as well as the illusion of escapism.
Neptune enters Pisces, its own sign, in April 2011.  Since both Neptune and Pisces rule all kinds of drugs, both natural and pharmaceutical, it is likely that legalization and recategorization of drugs could take place during this time period, along with a growing acceptance of drugs as tools for religious experience.

The astrological implications of the Jeffrey Epstein case including Me Too

Embed from Getty Images

Note: Yes, I know that Clinton was also an associate of Epstein. I attempted to give equal time by inserting a photo of Epstein and Clinton, but was unable to find one. I believe that ALL criminals connected to this case should be prosecuted. 

Jeffrey Epstein is a financial adviser to billionaires who began his career as a physics and calculus professor before moving on to finance.  He was arrested in New York on Saturday on charges of sex trafficking of children* after new complainants emerged in the district of New York, resulting in the sealed files from the Florida trial and plea deal to be unsealed.

This case more than any other in recent memory (other than perhaps the Harvey Weinstein story) exemplifies the ability of the rich and powerful to get away with crimes against the weak and unrepresented.  The astrology of this time vividly tells the story, with Saturn (tests and challenges) conjunct Pluto (power and secrets), both in the sign of Capricorn (the structures of society).  Back in April I wrote:

Saturn (tests and challenges) and Pluto (creative destruction) are at their closest point now until they collide in their official conjunction in January of 2020.  The combination of these two planets generally denotes a destructive force that can clear the path of any debris that is interfering with the natural movement of the Universe towards balance.  This has the potential to be a positive force, but it is also associated with contraction and challenge, especially now since both planets are in the contracting sign of Capricorn. They are aligned with the South Node of the past, denoting that some karmic cleanup is bound to occur.

The chickens are coming home to roost.  There are a great many chickens roosting in this particular horror of a scandal, […]

The astrology of the “Full Flower Moon” in Sagittarius, May 29 2018

full flower moon may 2018This month’s Sagittarius Full Moon asks that we dig deep into our hearts to find our adventurous spirit.   Called the “Flower Moon” because in the northern hemisphere, where these names originated, May is the month where flowers reach their maximum bloom, this May Full Moon inspires us to reach beyond the stars into the great unknown to find our place there.

Zodiacal polarities are opposites, with each sign having something that the other lacks.  Gemini wants to take in every single bit of information without discrimination, just for the sake of learning and gaining experience.  Sagittarius, on the other hand, is imbued with a never ending desire to continually expand one’s knowledge and awareness of the outer world.  As polarities go, the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity is about the most harmonious – both signs seek understanding, but in different ways.

I love the image of the “Flower Moon” for the Sagittarius Full Moon – the flowering of wisdom and innate understanding; expanding our goals and dreams beyond what we thought was possible, the never ending search for meaning and truth.  At the full moon our the power of the heart reaches a peak and our subconscious awareness becomes richer and more easily accessible to the conscious mind.

The astrological dynamics of this Sagittarius Full Moon are heavily weighted towards the earth and water elements.  Earth and water are the “yin” elements, motivating security and emotions but not necessarily the action and expansion that the fire of Sagittarius craves.  However, the Full Moon Ruler (Jupiter) is tied into a lovely Grand Trine in water signs (Venus in Cancer, Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces) which aids in the process of expansion on an emotional level.  When we are […]

Neptune and the Opioid addiction epidemic

Neptune in Piscesartist unknown

Neptune is one of the “transformational” planets – more recently discovered it does not fall under the traditional category of planets which include the luminaries (Sun and Moon) as well as the planets traditionally used by astrologers which include all the other solar system planets through Saturn.  I have found that the transformational planets do not operate on a personal level; instead, they inspire and motivate change.

At its higher level of operation, Neptune encourages us to transcend the boundaries of the material world in order to enjoy a spiritual experience of bliss and “not-self.”  However, there are different ways to achieve that experience and not all of them are positive.  Meditation, music, art – these all encourage the highest expression of Neptune.  But alcohol and drugs are also used to obtain that experience of “not-self” which verges on oblivion rather than bliss.

Neptune entered its own sign of Pisces in 2011 (you can read more about that here and here). In these early articles about Neptune in Pisces I wrote:

For the first eight years that Neptune moves through Pisces Chiron will be there as well.  In its role as the Wounded Healer (or as I prefer to call it, the Soul Healer) Chiron reveals any area in our world which requires release and healing so that a greater wisdom may emerge.  We are likely to see a more advanced wave of “designer” drugs – pharmaceuticals designed to evoke certain experiences.  The legalization of marijuana for medical use, and its adoption by pharmaceutical companies for profit, is likely to come rather quickly.

The spread of legalization of marijuana  is certainly occurring, and so is the spread of opioids to quash the psycho-emotional pain that Chiron […]

Sunday Inspiration: The Kingdom of Memory

Image from geograph.ie

The Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces today – a double dose of mystical energy to open the portals of consciousness and allow us to peer beyond the veil.  A conjunction of Mercury (the mind) to Uranus (awakening) assists us on the mental level so expand our awareness into multidimensional thinking.

These influences allow us to venture into the Kingdom of Memory – the place in our present where our past resides as beautifully stated by John O’Donohoe, the brilliant Irish mystic:

As we journey onwards in life, more and more spaces within us fill with absence. We begin to have more and more friends among the dead. Every person suffers the absence of their past.

It is utterly astonishing how the force and fiber of each day unravel into the vacant air of yesterday. You look behind you and you see nothing of your days here. Our vanished days increase our experience of absence. Yet our past does not deconstruct as if it never was.

Memory is the place where our vanished days secretly gather. Memory rescues experience from total disappearance. The kingdom of memory is full of the ruins of presence. It is astonishing how faithful experience actually is; how it never vanishes completely. Experience leaves deep traces in us. It is surprising that years after something has happened to you the needle of thought can hit some groove in the mind and the music of a long vanished event can rise in your soul as fresh and vital as the evening it happened.

Except from Eternal Echoes.
