Neptune in Pisces: The Split Between Heaven and Earth

Neptune will re-enter Pisces on February 3rd, 2012 and we will see this beautiful oceanic planet influence mundane events, as well as through fashion, movies and music. During its transit of its own sign of the fishes, we are interested in the world that existed before birth and the one we will see after death. We want to be able to grasp the larger picture, and there is a hopeless split between body and spirit. The astrological fishes represent this…

Neptune – The Sea

The Sea (Neptune) is the summoning up of overwhelming emotions, unconscious feelings, and is symbolic of the infinite dangers of the ocean. The ocean is one of the most powerful elements on earth and signifies the dangers unleashed when the forces sleeping under the surface of unconsciousness erupt. We need only think of the powerful moods of ‘The Sea’ – its enormous depth, turbulence and crashing waves that indiscriminately destroy everything in its path to understanding the nature of this…

Pisces, Neptune, and the 12th House: The Great Mother

The sign of Pisces is the classic image of redemption and universal love, and its symbol – represented by two fish swimming in a circular motion, signifies entering into the unknown and mysterious realm of the ocean — leading us to the completed cycle of life. In the myths surrounding the bond between child and mother it often depicts the smaller fish releasing himself/herself from the larger fish to claim his/her personal identity. All Piscean/Neptunian/12th house themes represent fusion, but this…

The Outer Planets & Compulsion

The Outer-Planets have a powerful and compulsive energy over the horoscope. The lengths of the transits reveal the longevity and impact of these gods and the significance of their energies over the course of history. The Uranus cycle equals one Neptune cycle and the Neptune cycle, equals one Pluto cycle. Dane Rudyhar suggests that these three planets should be studied and understood as constituting a threefold process. What begins with Uranus proceeds through Neptune and – as we are able…

Addiction

Addiction and dependence on drugs are nothing new, and addictive personalities understand the consequences of their habit. It leads to illness, premature death, and health expenses. Addiction to nicotine is a massive problem, and the difficulty of shaking the habit is known to millions of people. A dependence on a drug can lead a person to all sorts of immoral behavior, and the loss of self-respect is inevitable when an individual will do almost anything to obtain their habit. There…

Neptune Dreaming

The unconscious contents floating about our heads in the night time are given to the power of Neptune. The watery god is the ruler of the ocean and the unconscious and everything that is washed up on the shore. We can have several events and people actually separated by years together in our dreams, placed in a strangely familiar setting. Astrologers call Neptune a “forgetful” confusing, and vague plane of existance, but on a deeper level we haven’t forgotten anything,…

Sun Conjunct Neptune: The Art of Predictive Astrology

The Sun conjunct Neptune aspect – Carter said this on the aspect: “this is the most common aspect in the charts of astrologers, especially those involved in the art of predictive astrology. The author also says that whatever subject interests the native, there is usually a life-long devotion.” I thought this quote was rather eerie because Carol Rushman, who is the author of The Art of Predictive Astrology has an exact Sun-Neptune conjunction in Virgo in her 8th house. Carol…

Neptune in Pisces: Talking Dolphins

The Nostradamus prediction interpreted by Liz Greene and Peter Lorie is thought to possibly mean communication with dolphins. “When the animal domesticated by man after great pains and jumps will come to speak: the lightning (Sun) will be harmful to the virgin (Virgo), taken from earth and suspended in the air.”  By Nostradamus “Here we find something that, on the face of it, might take first prize for “weirdness.” Nostradamus is telling us about an animal that mankind has domesticated: a…

The timing of the ship’s most significant anniversary transpires when Neptune returns to its own sign of Pisces.
