Neptune’s passage through Pisces affects all people in such a way that we are asked to see the difference between fantasy and reality.
Neptune, as Steven Forrest so wisely says in his writings, is a window through which we see the collective unconscious from a conscious perspective. Look around—we’ve got quite a view these days! Observe the extreme nature of leadership that has been elected and the polarity this is causing between groups of people.
This didn’t just spontaneously happen recently. You could say that Neptune’s passage through Pisces is like drawing the curtain back to see what’s going on in our collective experience. Racism, sexism, ignorance/lack of education, climate change, poverty, bigotry, animal abuse—all these realities must be reckoned with.
On the other hand, you see a rise of people severing their attachments to money and capitalism and taking up professions and lifestyles that allow for “living simply so others can simply live” Yet, there’s a fine line between this and escapism—bypassing what needs to be done to reconcile this craziness.
The Piscean energy makes it likely that we try to escape or deny all of it. We can do this with drugs, over-dependency on social welfare systems, retail therapy, religion—you name it. Even in the case of the yoga community, we can see the tendency toward dogma as people escape into the practices and achievement in this realm alone, as an excuse to laud their status as super-spiritual and bypass immersion in everyday life.
People are so creative in times governed by Pisces, and we are especially good at creating ways to hide under the covers—without looking like we are doing it!
This astrological event relates to everyone, but will apply most directly for those who have planets in, square, or opposed to Pisces.* However, in looking at Neptune in Pisces, anyone will find we have more insight into what’s been going on since 2011 and what will be going on through 2026. It behooves us all to rise together to a more conscious understanding of our lives and how we are all on this planet together.
