Long Wave Collective Healing and Mentoring.
Neptune and Chiron are major transformational spiritual forces representing the collective unconscious and the mentoring function which calls us to our Higher Self. These two planets have to do with a VERY vast picture of collective consciousness and the energies needed to “heal into our Higher Self.” Today we’ll discuss what’s up and what’s coming.
Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius, Pisces, and Aries – The Big Picture
Because Neptune has been in Pisces for about 10 years, we’ve been navigating through the threshold of an entirely new era which will not resemble the old Age in any way within just a few decades. We’re already solidly in the Dreamscape, with a lot of delusion and confusion as many old things end while we learn to maneuver the foggy field.
The transition from Neptune dreaming the Age of Aquarius into collective consciousness into the current transit in Pisces began during the last half of 2011, when many broke out of their "chrysalis" and transformed their lives and relationships. If you want to know what's coming for many years to come, take a look back at the intuitions and sense of belonging to a vaster interrelated whole you were shown in Spring and Summer of 2011. It may help to give a sense of our collective lesson in dissolving our separateness as we finish this transition through "the Winter of the 21st Century" on our way to Spring, beginning in 2025!
When it entered the second decan of Aquarius in 2007, Chiron began to approach its conjunction with Neptune. They stayed close in the third decan in 2008, and finally made their conjunction at 27 Aquarius in mid-2009, after which they both retrograded back, making another conjunction on the same degree in February 2010.
[As an aside, these conjunction energies were revisited when Mercury went stationary retrograde at 27 Aquarius in late January 2021, and offered the freedom to expand in new forms when Jupiter transited this degree three times between April and December 2021. The distant past has been awakened this year!]
Chiron then briefly entered Pisces during the Spring and Summer of 2010, and both retrograded back into late Aquarius, with Neptune going direct at 26 Aquarius and Chiron at 27 Aquarius in November 2010. That set the themes for our collective healing until their next conjunction in 2094 at 5 Virgo. Chiron re-entered Pisces in early 2011 and stayed in that sign through early 2018, when it first entered Aries.
During the years Chiron was in Pisces, we were shown how to bless a lot and let it go, including dogmas and beliefs which kept us stuck in ambivalence or suffering. We healed by having compassion for ourselves and the suffering we share with the world. Now in Aries we heal by living in the NOW, embracing our new lives by identifying with a larger Life and collective work. It also “left tracks of mentoring” which have been guides for us as we move through the Neptune in Pisces fogs.
Chiron in late Pisces 2014-2018 heralded what will be “dreamed into collective consciousness” by Neptune these next 4 years as it transits the last half of Pisces. Chiron transits help each of us heal anew through our positioning within collective consciousness. When in Pisces, we were mentored in Piscean ways. When in Aries, we are finding ways to mentor and be mentored in Aries, healing into our higher Self by moving into direct action, securing our initial position in the new Life, leading to a vision of a larger role to play in the future as an inspiration to others.
Chiron was first in early Aries between April and September 2018, and is now moving between 6 and 13 degrees of this first sign of the zodiac. This indicates our long term mentoring and/or healing into our Higher Self involves embracing all that is new, realizing we have a unique individual part to play in “the healing of humanity.” In 2018, it finished its task at “the end of the end” and began to mentor us at “the beginning of the beginning.”
With Chiron at the end of Pisces and beginning of Aries in 2018, we were in an important position in space-time where we have had to embrace compassion, forgiveness, and a vast understanding of ourselves as Spirits having human experiences. And to be human is to be flawed. Those flaws provide the spur for us to overcome them by transmuting them into strengths and skills which serve a higher purpose in our lives.
In 2018 and early 2019, we healed into our Higher Self by saying goodbye to some things and saying hello to others. As Jupiter and Uranus transited this span several times in 2010-2011, what was awakened then and since prepared us to be healed and/or mentored into our individuality. The vision or the new truth and future which led to a personal revolution then has been the source of us being mentored, or us mentoring others.
Current Themes of Transiting Chiron in Aries
At this time Chiron is direct at 9 Aries bringing us healing through our ability to concentrate “to see whole.” We first experienced Chiron in this span when it transited 7-10 Aries in April, May, and June 2020, and then a second time after it went retrograde from July through October 2020. It then moved across that span a third time in February, March, and April 2021 before entering into a new zone of activity spanning 11-13 Aries in May, June, and July.
It then went retrograde and re-traced its path across 11-13 Aries from July through October, and has been at 10 and 9 Aries where it goes stationary direct about 48 hours before the December 2021 Solstice. From there it moves back across 10 Aries the last week of January through mid-February, 11-13 Aries from mid-February through mid-April, and then leaves its Shadow Zone and occupies 14, 15, and 16 Aries through mid-June.
It’s at 17 Aries from mid-June through mid-August, going stationary retrograde on that degree in mid-July. It then retrogrades back through 16, 15, and 14 Aries from late July through early November, when it again transits 13 Aries, the degree of its retrograde station earlier in 2021. It continues to retrograde back to 11 Aries, where it goes stationary direct between the Solstice and Christmas.
So this year Chiron moves from doing double duty moving between the first and second decan of Aries into a pure second decan experience, giving us consistent subtones of Leo and the Sun. We will continue to be able to use these healing and mentoring energies with skill and initiative through 2026, when it enters Taurus and we move into the next Chironic era. For now, keep focused on the whole picture, and open to seeing a new worldly and spiritual order in your life.”
We now begin to move solidly into Chiron’s healing and mentoring energies in the second decan of Aries after finishing up 9 and 10 Aries the next few weeks. This will also re-charge the themes of the 2020 Mars/Chiron conjunction at 10 Aries, fixing that energy for a cycle of two years.

Once it hits 11 Aries in February 2022, it will begin a long term residency in the second decan.
Current Themes of Transiting Neptune in Pisces
Neptune shows us how to merge the sacred and the everyday in our lives. We have received a new inspiration, and begun a long term collective renewal. Neptune is now direct at 21 Pisces, the same degree as it occupied in May, June, July, and August 2020, having gone SRX there in June 2020. It was also here between late February and late March 2021 and has occupied this degree since October 13.
All of these periods have given us several views of a technique of learning how to touch and be touched, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Since last Summer, we’ve all been awakened to an expanded tactile awareness, giving us more of a kinesthetic experience of learning. You can learn more about the primary and secondary methods of how we learn all we learn by going to The Seven Different Types of Learning Styles – Pt. 1 and The Seven Different Types of Learning and Teaching Styles – Pt. 2
In 2019 Neptune began its stay in the second half of Pisces, said to be the Scene of Perpetuation and Span of Protection. It began the year at 15 Pisces, and got to 19 Pisces where it went SRX in June. It then retrograded back to 16 Pisces in December, went direct, and in 2020 entered 18 Pisces at the end of January, 19 Pisces at the end of February, and moved into 20 Pisces just after the March 2020 Equinox. It then entered 21 Pisces at the end of April, eventually going SRX on that degree in June. It then re-traced its way back from 21 Pisces to 19 Pisces, where it went stationary direct on that degree in late November 2020.
We’re now getting yet another look at the span from 21 to 24 Pisces between now through mid-April, when Neptune enters a zone it hasn’t known since 1858-1859. This implies that collective consciousness in 2021-2022 is in a zone filled with turmoil historically. Given Pluto is also in a zone where it last was in 1774-1775, it would seem a “pre-revolution” is in the air!
Into the Unknown
In mid-January Neptune enters 22 Pisces, in mid-April 23 Pisces, and in mid-March 24 Pisces. It leaves its Shadow zone in mid-April, and then transits 25 Pisces through mid-May, going stationary retrograde at 26 Pisces in late June. It’s on that degree through the first week of August, then occupies 25 Pisces through mid-September. It’s at 24 Pisces through the end of October, and then remains at 23 Pisces through early January 2023, going stationary direct on that degree in early December 2022.
So in 2022 we get to experience 21-26 Pisces, keeping the focus of collective consciousness at the social-emotional level at the beginning of the end of the 360 phases of cyclic experience while introducing us to the individual spiritual level of Pisces between mid-May and early August. Having a new power to touch and be touched, we’re about to get a review of how we’ve met the standards of a new way of spiritual living, the unsuspected powers which have come forth, our interrelatedness, and our need to allow our Soul to purify our personality from time to time.
Between mid-May and early August we begin to experience “the end of the end,” realizing the fallacy of believing anyone can respond to life experiences according to someone else’s rules and expectations. Many will realize they have to “go their own way,” and let the past move down the timestream. After that we get one last look back at what needs purifying, who we want in our sphere of relationships, and the transcendent powers which we never knew existed.
The Eclipse Factor
We’ll close this overview of Chiron and Neptune with a brief look at the Eclipse factor. We had numerous Solar Eclipses in Pisces which had a huge effect on Neptune and us all since 2015. They fell at 30, 19, and 9 Pisces, all of which also had Neptune in Pisces. The 19 Pisces Eclipse was in effect through mid-2021, and the 9 Pisces will be through early 2022. These have had a profound effect on the field of the collective consciousness, as well as the collective unconscious. Given Neptune is the spiritual ruler of Pisces, it’s also been involved in the eclipses at Virgo 21 and 10 by opposition, creating a “Tension of Opposites” that profoundly impacted the collective spiritual field.
The March 2015 Solar Eclipse at 30 Pisces helped us get very clear about the new “law of life” we yearned for through removing all the subconscious blocks to our best dream, and boosted our ability to send out the thought form that created the life we’ve led since then. The March 2016 Solar Eclipse at 19 Pisces helped us “take a walk with our wisdom,” beginning the release of all things that would impede our receptivity to that wisdom. Our “spiritual signal” has become stronger since then. The March 2017 Solar Eclipse at 9 Pisces continues to assist us through our 4 year “quickening,” helping us release unnecessary baggage.
So Neptune is now “dreaming” into collective consciousness the same themes Chiron introduced to us between 2015 and 2017. As you can see, both Neptune and Chiron have been taking us into a far vaster collective healing and mentoring than we’ve known in many decades. Collectively, we’re now solidly in a newer spiritual realm, where our ability to practice “kinesthetic awareness” is established, and we’re moving into the end of the end of the Winter of the 21st century.
