When an outer planet (Uranus/Neptune/Pluto) moves into a new sign or a new house it can be a momentous occasion and often manifests in some kind of (symbolic) event (major or minor) to announce the ‘new’ energy pattern that is about to unfold.
Of course, leaving behind the old sign, or old house also has it’s own significant events that sum up the lesson(s) of what’s being left behind, for now or for however long it takes until the cycle repeats again. Such is the ‘wheel’ of Karma.
Neptune entered Pisces in 2012 and slid into my ninth house in the spring of 2013. Neptune can deliver some frightening experiences if left unnoticed so its always best to find healthy ways to experience it. Such is the gift of astrology, to make one aware of what is possible. But, back to me, it’ll take until 2029 before it connects with my midheaven and enters my 10th house.
Neptune in the 9th for 11 years will slowly dissolve what was before and invisibly recreate all ninth house affairs. In doing that it will also send some *shade* onto the 3rd house, and any other natal placements it aspects. (Astrological dictionary here)
Some ninth house affairs include: long distance travel, foreign or distant places, aliens, immigrants, as well as Judges, Religious Authority figures, philosophers and athletes. Travels need not be physical, but could be intellectual or spiritual . Our personal philosophy is described in the ninth house and with Neptune here I expect I’ll think about things quite differently before it’s over. (some Neptune keywords here)
In order to understand a transiting planet in one’s personal horoscope, you must first investigate the natal placement of that planet first. And that’s where it gets impossibly ridiculous for me. Because, you see, I was born in Neptune, NJ, and lived from 0-8yrs in Neptune City, NJ. Natal Neptune is in my 4th house of home, real estate, and early childhood. I have no choice but to pay attention to *neptune*.
Obviously, as the current colloquialism goes, “you can’t make this stuff up”.
Today, Neptune is only minutes away from a trine to Natal Sun, midway thru Pisces, and midway thru my ninth house. The landscape of my life has certainly changed since I began writing this post in 2015 and I’m happy that I kept the draft. It helps to mark certain time-periods.
I can say this, we do create our own reality, and with Neptune time is fluid. It helps to have *spiritual* practices that connect you to *the present moment*
Om Shanti. May all beings be peaceful. May all beings be kind. May all beings be happy.
