Neptune has now entered 23 Pisces, beginning this year’s occupancy of its Shadow Zone. What does this mean and why should we care?
First, it means Neptune will be in the 23-26 Pisces degree span between now and the first week of April 2023! Second, it means wherever we have 23-26 Pisces in our charts is now swimming in the great sea of collective consciousness, and the aspects Neptune makes to our planets adjusts our relationship to the collective atmosphere around us.
The shadow zone is defined by the span between where a planet goes retrograde, and where it goes direct after the retrograde period. In this case, Neptune went direct in late Nov 2021 at 21 Pisces, the same degree as its retrograde station in June 2020. It spent a lot of time at that degree, and that period in 2020-2021 gave us techniques of “walking with our wisdom” and learning new ways of touching and being touched.
It now is moving through 23 Pisces on the way to 26 Pisces, where it will go stationary retrograde in late June. It will then retrograde back to 22 Pisces 38 where it goes stationary direct in early December. That means the collective atmosphere will be focused on the themes related to 23, 24, 25, and 26 Pisces for the rest of this year into 2023.
Neptune shows us how to merge the sacred and the everyday in our lives. Neptune’s position in the sign it rules is related to the widespread spiritual awakening going on, as well as the widespread delusions and superstitions also haunting humanity. We’ve all had major opportunities to allow our Soul to strengthen our bodies, feelings, and minds, been released from old karmas, and found what nourishes us among our Spiritual Brothers and Sisters.
23 Pisces allows us to focus our magnetism to express what is greater than we imagine. This opens subtle ways to put our hearts into our expression if we would succeed in making our intentions real and substantial. 24 Pisces has been and continues to show us our interrelatedness within a larger field, and techniques of reaching out to others in our larger sphere of collective interaction. 25 Pisces will lead us to allow our Soul to purify our personality and eliminate everything from selfishness to Ahamkara (“lower ego I consciousness”), leaving us clean to embrace a new poetry of doing our Being as we land at the forward threshold of 26 Pisces, where each can realize the value of doing what they must their own way. It begins a long period of seeing, as Rudhyar put it, “the fallacy of totalitarianism.”
So this year, when Neptune goes SRX in June at 26 Pisces, it will retrograde back to 23, where it will go SD in December, and then re-trace this Shadow zone through the first week of April 2023. We’re now in a collective atmosphere which we last knew in 1858-1859.This implies that collective consciousness in 2022 is in a zone filled with turmoil historically. Given Pluto is also in a zone where it last was in 1775-1776, it would seem a “pre-revolution” is in the air! Neptune was also in this zone in 1694-1694, and before that, 1530-31.
(As an aside, it is not the US Pluto return. It is the Pluto return of the Declaration of Independence. The Pluto return for the 19 Apr 1775 Battles of Lexington and Concord is at 26 Capricorn 41; for the 23 August 1775 Proclamation of rebellion it’s at 24 Cap 40, and the Pluto return for the Articles of Confederation and Constitution, the actual attempts at creating a national government, will not happen for years.)
So get in touch with potential inner powers which can help you make manifest what your deepest and highest consciousness can imagine, knowing you’re already weaved into your special part of the collective field. We all now can feel with greater awareness, and have a greater Kinesthetic intelligence. Whether we are visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learners, the final one of these has contributed to our first two the past year.
We now move into familiar collective consciousness while moving toward a greater purification of our personalities by our Souls. See the vaster tide of evolution in your life, helping your ship of personality move with the currents into a greater life and awareness. There are techniques of experiencing a greater Oneness with “All That Is” to be applied as we materialize the spiritual in our lives. Embrace your greater connectedness with Spirit, your Higher Self, your life Mystery, and others in your Spiritual field, since we’re preparing for a historic collective launch into a new Life energy in 2025!
A brief meditation: We are never separate from Life, Love, Wisdom, each other, or “All-That-Is,” for even one second. We are One Life Together. Open to your experience of Being that Life/Light/Love within the Unified Field. Neptune’s vast tides will help you navigate the great depths of Life and find your way to your own archipelago in the vast ocean of collective consciousness.
Soon we will sail into the fogs and mists of places unknown for 144 years. There is nothing to fear, Friends to be found, and service to be made manifest. Enjoy the journey!
