Neptune Stationary Direct at 23 Pisces in December 2022

Neptune Stationary Direct at 23 Pisces in December 2022

Neptune represents the Divine Power of eternal and infinite connectedness, and rules the waves of life and the feelings we all learn to navigate through the fogs and uncertainties of life. It is the “Sea of Relatedness” we all swim in with each other. It goes stationary direct December 3. What does this hold for us?

Neptune’s exact direct station occurs at 4:15 PST on December 3, 12:15 am GMT December 4. As is the case with all the outer planets when they turn stationary direct or retrograde, it marks a major “sea change” in those invisible Spiritual transpersonal energies. We are all about to have a different but familiar Neptunian experience where we are shown anew the span Neptune has traversed since April 2021, where we took our deepened our connection to our Wisdom and/or our Spiritual Teacher, whoever or whatever that is, into where our social-emotional sense of things gives way to a new individual spiritual realization of our place in the collective.

We’ve been reviewing 26 through 23 Pisces since late June, and now stand on the threshold of being able to demonstrate types of spiritual power if we’re willing to give of ourselves to make it real. Having learned to “touch and be touched” in physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual ways these past 2 years, we now move into “the end of the end” of Neptune’s stay in its home sign of Pisces, with the final phase of our experience beginning December 2023.

How We Got Here

As Neptune has not been in this part of Pisces since 1858-1859, as I’ve mentioned for several years, it would seem the collective consciousness is in a “pre-civil war” state of mind. It was certainly a time of rampant imperialism and heavy handed rule of the wealthy. As most of that mental and emotional pollution was never cleaned up, no doubt some are experiencing that very strange collective field in its current form.

Remember Neptune represents both the collective consciousness, as well as the collective unconscious. The first is what it’s aware of, whether consciously or unconsciously. The second is what it is unaware of as a collective mentality. As there are many ghosts and echoes across time associated with the sign of Pisces, it’s safe to say we are all experiencing “the ghosts of all time” at this long wave “end of the end, beginning of the beginning” minor epoch of the transition out of the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius.

Between 2016-2018, Neptune occupied 11-15 Pisces, where our sense of connectedness in Pisces is merged on an individual, intellectual, and spiritual level. Neptune fulfilled its transit of the first half of Pisces by March 2018, and then entered the second half of Pisces, shifting one keyword from “Federation” to “Perpetuation.” It moved through 16-20 Pisces between April 2018 and February 2021, during which it initially entered the third decan in April 2020. It then re-entered the third decan in late February 2021, and will stay in the end phase of Pisces until it enters Aries in late March 2025.

The second decan of Pisces has a Cancerian influence with a powerful Jupiter presence. That sector gives a sense of personal connection and caring to the Neptune in Pisces expression. The third part of Pisces has a Scorpionic influence with a powerful Mars presence. It is the last 10 degree phase of the Whole Cycle of 360 degrees, where we eliminate and complete “the end of the end before the beginning.” This is a witnessing of all that has come before, a final “coming together” on the collective feeling level before the advent of a new era.

The final part of Pisces is the Scorpionic karma of humanity’s past with an extra dose of Mars to keep things moving forward. Once Neptune enters Aries in March 2025, many ghosts, superstitions, and confusions of the past 2000 years will quickly give way to a sense of emergence into a new collective consciousness.

Neptune’s Stationary Direct Sabian Symbol

Neptune represents what is “in fashion” in the collective. Different cultures and subcultures interpret this global pulse in different ways. The Sabian Symbol for 23 Pisces is “Spiritist phenomenon.” In his masterwork The Astrology of Personality, where Rudhyar uses the original Dr. Jones' class notes on the symbols, 23 Pisces is said to symbolize “Display of powers which, though physical, transcend our normal awareness,” and “subjective mastery of, or passivity to, life-forces.”

In his Astrological Mandala he states this is a degree of “the ability to give of one’s own vital energy to substantiate one’s conscious ideals or unconscious desires.” He says anyone who believes they have “a mission or mandate, or any special gift that can be of value in (our) community, must substantiate this belief.” He states we must “produce results,” which may involve “difficulties and special conditions or circumstances,” and “always demands to some extent the gift of some power of value which is deeply one’s own.”

He continues that there is an element of sacrifice in this 5 degree span, and believes “something precious involved in a deeply personal experience has to be surrendered, offered to others. The medium’s psychic substance provides the materials made visible in the phenomena, if the latter are genuine…. The performer gives of (their) very life to the performance.”

He concludes by saying this “display of psychic power… can be interpreted positively or negatively according to the motives that induced the “medium” to give the séance,” and suggests the keyword Substantiation, with the caveat to be alert to the shadow of “deception.” He states this degree falls in the Span of Protection, Act of Capitalization, and Scene of Perpetuation, and is the synthesizing degree of the Emotional-Social level.

Dr. Jones, creator of the Sabian Symbols, says this is a degree of "the organic integrity of the world at large, evident here in (our) facility for actual and conscious cooperation with the potentials of an immortal reality.” He states that this implies “that the individual will be conditioned increasingly by the caprice of (their) ideas and the mishaps of (their) experience unless (they) give continual attention to the realms of reality (they) have thought to make particularly (their own.”

He says that we achieve as we hold “a clear picture of the end results (we) desire,” and offers us the keyword TALENT. He states when operating in a positive way, this degree is “exceptional ability in shaping every immediate aspect of life to a personal convenience.”

So we now begin to move forward, secure in the wisdom we began to receive in the Summer of 2021 within that vast “feeling field” known as Neptune. Neptune now moves forward through its shadow zone until mid-April 2023, when it will move into 27 Pisces. Between now and April we will find new powers to shape our world, renew our sense of who we are in the oceanic field, do more personality purifications so our Soul can shine forth, and again experience “the poetry of our lives” even as we say goodbye to more than we know.

Many have had to understand there are many ways to do any given thing in 2022, and this will continue in early 2023, as many are going their own way and allowing others to go their own way. By April, we will move into unknown zones of collective awareness with an emphasis on using creative imagination to “dominate circumstances” and bring us the abundance which is our divine right. In the Spring of 2023, the atmosphere changes!

Long Terms Shifts In Collective Consciousness

Neptune shows us the tides of collective lessons, and the themes coming forth from the collective unconscious. Where Neptune is transiting in our charts is where we’re tuned into the collective, for better or worse. Apart from these larger shades of the sea, the Sabian Symbol themes can be excellent clues about humanity’s larger issues and themes of ultimate relatedness.

Try to imagine the collective “in-breathing and outbreathing” these larger themes across the years. We hit a threshold state at the SRX forward station each year in the Summer, then review the themes of the previous degrees between the SRX and SD points from Summer through late Autumn. The SD point becomes a platform from which we move forward within collective consciousness.

The November 2016 SD 10 Pisces theme was “Mastery Moving Into A Testing Period.” This implies we were within the themes of the beginning of the second decan of Pisces which involved our entry “into the sanctuary,” accepting our role within a new group energy and testing our skills and courage to get out of our own way so a higher Will could be focused within us.

The June 2017 SRX 15 Pisces threshold theme was “Rehearsal Before the Battle Where Appearances Give Way to Necessities.” We then re-traced the “atmospheres” of 15, 14, 13, and 12 Pisces, giving us a new look at how skilled we are in getting out of our way to focus a higher Will in a period of testing. So we were immersed in moving back and forth around 12-13 Pisces. (Neptune went SRX at 14 Pisces in June 1853).

The November 2017 12 Pisces SD theme was “We Have All Proved What We’re Qualified to Do in the Spiritual Field.” This grounded the testing in the collective field as a platform all of us have dealt with since 2016. (Neptune went SD at 11 Pisces in Nov 1853).

The June 2018 SRX 17 Pisces theme was “Participation in a Rebirth of Groups Assembling.” Early 2018 introduced us to the themes of 16 and 17 Pisces, while late 2018 we reviewed the themes of 17, 16, 15, and 14. So 2018 was about a “first look” at a new inspiration and our willingness to participate in some sort of group rebirth, presenting our best to our society. (Neptune went SRX at 16 Pisces in June 1854).

The November 2018 SD 14 Pisces theme was “Those Who Are Consecrated to a Sacred Work in the Spiritual Field Need Protective Shielding.” This anchored our protective “shields” to do our work in the world, and gave us yet another look at the themes of 14-17 Pisces, before entering into the unknown zone of 18-19, which became the new themes for 2019. (Neptune went SD at 13 Pisces in Jan 1855).

The June 2019 SRX 19 Pisces theme of “Taking A Walk With Our Wisdom” was the threshold of the Summer of 2019, after which we reviewed the themes of 16, 17, 18, and 19 Pisces. So 2019 was about our first experience of being invested with a deeper, vaster wisdom, with the second half of the year a review of our spiritual renewal within our group, along with revising some ideas “back to source.” (Neptune went SRX at 19 Pisces in June 1855).

The November 2019 SD 16 Pisces theme was “Finding a New Inspiration By Retreating From the World.” This grounded our ability to reference our inner inspiration as we participated in our spiritual group renewal and put ourselves and our skills out into the public realm trusting our wisdom as it again transited 17, 18, and 19 Pisces before entering into the unknown zone of 20-21 Pisces, which became the new themes for 2020 (Neptune went SD at 16 Pisces in December 1855).

The June 2020 SRX 21 Pisces theme of “Finding New Faith in Learning To Touch and Be Touched” was the threshold of the Summer of 2020, after which we reviewed the themes of 19, 20, and 21 Pisces. So 2020 was about our first experience of finding what we need at “the end of our day of labor,” as well as a discovery about touch (material and/or metaphorical), with the second half of the year a review of these, as well as the wisdom which was first given to us in the Summer of 2019. (Neptune went SRX at 21 Pisces in June 1856)

The November 2020 SD 19 Pisces theme was the same as the June 2019 SRX theme of “walking with our wisdom” as we moved forward through the span of 19-24 Pisces, getting at third look at 19-21 and a first look at 22-24 Pisces. (This begins the break in the pattern, as Neptune went SD at 18 Pisces in December 1856.)

The August 2021 SRX 24 Pisces theme of “Finding a new connection with others” was the threshold of the Summer of 2021, after which we reviewed the themes of 21, 22, 23, and 24 Pisces. So 2021 was about our first experience of total immersion in the social and emotional field of the vast collective. (This continues the break, as Neptune went SRX at 23 Pisces in June 1857.)

The December 2021 SD 21 Pisces theme was the same as the June 2020 SRX theme of becoming aware of new ways to touch and be touched, with more hope opened in the collective field based in all which had come forth related to 21 Pisces since June 2020. (Again, Neptune went SD at 20 Pisces in December 1857.)

The June 2022 SRX 26 Pisces theme of “Each gets to do their own thing in their own way,” glimpsing the poetry of our lives set the collective threshold since then, after which we reviewed 23, 24, 25, and 26. So 2022 has been about our first immersion in the individual and spiritual field of the collective, and a review of what needed purification, how we are interrelated with others near and far, and establishing a basis for new powers to come forth. (Neptune went SRX at 25 Pisces in June 1858.)

From here we again move through this span of 23-26 Pisces from now through April 2023, when Neptune again moves into unknown zones of 27 and 28 Pisces. If you want to go back to see the future, please check out Astrology Sea Changes in June 2022 - Neptune is Stationary Retrograde at 26 Pisces. As Neptune went SD at 23 Pisces in Dec 1858, it would seem like the collective is partying like it’s 1858-1859 all over again!

Summing Up

So the tide has turned one more time as we prepare to sail familiar seas for a third time! We now move forward with a platform of having “a vaster feeling awareness” which allows us to know how to tap powers hidden deep within so we may play our part in the collective ocean. In the past year we’ve purified our lives and secured a greater faith in ourselves, and seen how each can only do what they do in their own unique way. We now more forward, knowing we are moving toward using creative imagination to “dominate circumstances” and find our ideal of abundance in some way in 2023, demonstrating a new level of life and power as individual units of spiritual awareness within the collective field..

From now through April 2023, we’ll again revisit the themes of 23, 24, 25, and 26 Pisces which were discussed above. As noted, in April Neptune will leave its shadow zone and move into the unknown zones of 27 and 28 Pisces, where it will go SRX in June. So for the next few weeks, continue to experience your connection to the collective as well as the depths of yourself.

By January-February you will again understand you’ve hit a new level of connectedness, after which you’ll launch into a more permanent unique self expression. Get ready for a shift by April, because the Sabian Symbols clearly indicate less testing and more rewards between April and September 2023, with a final reprise in February and March 2024!

At this point, Neptune has left its long term septile to Pluto and again brings us a forming sextile, showing invisible transformative energies working for productivity. Uranus continues its septile with Neptune through June 2023, continuing the third iteration of “The Grand Irrationality” which continues to put pressure on our world at points of a “fork in the road of destiny.”

Saturn makes nothing but favorable aspects to Neptune for many years. Jupiter is about to leave Pisces and the moves through Aries and early Taurus, making nothing but favorable aspects through June 2023, after which it forms a semisquare. Mars closed an old cycle and opened a new one related to 25 Pisces when it conjuncted Neptune in May 2022, also activating the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction themes and awakenings related to Uranus’ many stations in this area of the zodiac between 2008-2010.

Mars has stalled at the waxing square in late Gemini in October and November 2022, and will retrograde back to a highly favorable quintile from late December through late January, after which it makes a binovile in February and the final square from Gemini to Pisces in March. As Mars gets further into Cancer in April and May, it makes exceptionally favorable aspects to Neptune.

As all the inner planets are now preparing to re-enter the outer planet occupied zone of Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn in Aquarius, Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Aries, and Uranus in Taurus, regard this period as a time of spiritual harvest for the year. We stand on the threshold of renewing the year cycles of each of these outer planet spiritual heavyweights between January and May, so prepare to pull the energies inward for the next few months.
