Neptune is currently transiting in the sign of Pisces, the home turf of Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces. This transit into Pisces began on February 3rd, 2012, and stays til July 26th, 2025.
What is the significance of a transiting Neptune, and the sign it inhabits? Neptune can be interpreted as “collective belief”, or “mass imagination”, the sign Neptune is in tells of the nature of collective belief or mass imagination. Neptune can be said to represent the “Zeitgeist”, or the spirit of the times…and with Neptune in Pisces, the spirit of the times will reflect all things Piscean, for good or ill.
The highest manifestation of this Piscean energy would be for each individual in society to realize genuine communion with the universal mind, or what most people refer to as "God". ("Great Creative Intelligence"). The masses of people, after all, are a grouping of individuals, and the condition of the population reflects the condition of the individual, and vice versa. The only real communion, or communication with “divine mind”, happens via the Self, rather than by “being self-less” in the commune-ity, and submissively collectivizing around a standardized belief regarding an idealized external parental power, a “benevolent” "authority". Another way to say this, it is by going within to get there, rather than the folly of chasing external salvation. Erroneously, many astrologers themselves believe that the idea of “communion” or conversation with “God”, that could occur when dealing with the Piscean energy involves a general self-renunciation, or self-lessness, which is utterly false and a form of suicide and the rejection of "God". Those who fear God, fear themselves, the kingdom is within, etc.
The inversion of Pisces’ potential is the self-lessness and “unconditional love” of collectivism, which comes about by the negation of the individual, for the “greater good”. When the individual has been negated, there will be no authentic communion, which is FREEDOM, instead…commune-ism, cultism, religious fundamentalism, cultural Marxism, etc. , a world of mandatory mediocrity…and slavery. The communion that we really want is the experience that proves, subjectively, that one has a relationship with the Creator or the Logos, having Gnosis that “THE UNIVERSE IS THE MESSIAH” as Michael McClure put it.
Another way of talking about communion is to refer to the experience of life as a waking dream, and dreamlike experiences certainly fall under the umbrella of the Piscean realm.
The psyche is like an omnipresent atmo“sphere” that exists in all times and throughout all space. The psyche expresses itself like a fractal, in that it uses synchronistic iterations of itself to express itself in multiple dimensions simultaneously – within ourselves, in relationship with each other, and throughout the collective organism of humanity.-Paul Levy
Communion, traditionally, regards the silly ritual that takes place in our Mother churches, where a man wearing a dress gives you a little bit of wine or grape juice and a wafer, to “drink the blood and eat the flesh of the Son of God”. Fortunately, this is not about cannibalism.
"When you make the two one, and when you make the inside as the outside, and the outside as the inside, and the upper as the lower, and when you make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male is not male and female not female, and when you make eyes in place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then shall you enter the kingdom"-Gospel of Thomas
