From 2012 – 2025, the planet Neptune transits Pisces, the zodiacal sign of its rulership where it comes strong into own.
According to Liz Greene (The Astrological Neptune and the Quest for Redemption, pp – 293-297) this is characterised politically by:
- Disintegration of existing structures and values,
- Escapist tendencies leading to embracing utopian ideals – i.e. a mythical golden age to which if only we might return, all will be shiny and bright again,
- ‘Virus of nationalism’ – i.e. dreams of OUR glorious past – free of foreign influence – national purity and self-sufficiency – spiritual longing for that wonderful lost world, (we believe) once was enjoyed by our forefathers.
Remember that in Greek, the world ‘utopia’ means ‘nowhere’.
Is ‘nowhere’ where you really want to go?
PS: the last time Neptune was in Pisces was 1846-1848 during which period was waged the Mexican-American war:
