Neptune's transit of Pisces (the sign that it rules) starts for good on February 3rd. This once in a lifetime transit will be in place until 2025 and the effects will be gradual but unmistakable. Certain "truths" will be questioned and some will dissolve as the planet of dreams, spirituality and sacrifice reaches its full power. Everyone had a taste of this influence back in April, 2011 when Neptune briefly entered Pisces before retrograding back into Aquarius. Expect whatever themes were introduced then to intensify.
Neptune enters your sector of secrets, introducing a new era of spiritual awareness and connection to your dreams and hidden impulses. This transit will allow you to access deep healing and compassion. Unacknowledged wounds and weaknesses can now be dissolved as you finally let go of what's been hurting you. It's time to open up that side of yourself that you keep hidden from everyone (including yourself).
Neptune enters your sector of friends and groups, increasing your sense of charity, giving and acceptance. Over the next few years you may be moved to volunteer time or money as you decide to give back. This can be an especially healing time for ruptured friendships or your feelings of acceptance in the group. Certain alliances will dissolve and new, more creative ones will take their place.
Neptune's entrance into your career sector introduces a new era of creativity, faith and intuition regarding your path in life. Current goals or positions may slowly dissolve; if this happens, let them go. There's something better waiting that actually reflects your dreams (yes, you really can find your dream job under this influence). This transit will help you move past career anxieties and feelings of inferiority.
Neptune enters your opportunities sector, making your dreams of distant horizons seem that much closer. There's so much more you want to do and the next few years will show you how. The importance trust, faith and the idea of limitless potential will become increasingly important. But before any of this can happen, you'll need to let go of your doubts about stepping outside the comfort zone. Then you really can spread your wings.
Neptune enters your sector of shared resources. Debts, loans, taxes or your partner's finances may become less clear cut. Who owes what and whom can you depend on? The value/importance of money will shift as you question its role in your life. Alternatively, your boundaries may become quite blurry as you give up control and allow intimacy and acceptance to grow in your life. This will be the transit that allows you to let go of trust issues.
Neptune's entrance into your partnership sector may have you wondering if a current or new relationship is a dream come true or a hallucination. Old expectations and doubts about romance will gradually fall away as you experience some new realizations; the perfect partnership does not exist and you can realize your romantic dreams. If these two ideas seem to contradict each other, Neptune will show you how they are one and the same. It's time to move forward and let go of romantic disappointments.
Neptune enters your sector of day to day activities, introducing a shift to a gentler, more accepting way of life. You may be a bit unfocused at first as your current routine dissolves. Anything demanding, stressful or confining will have no place in this new order. Watch for a surge of creativity. This transit may bring up hard-to-pinpoint symptoms and health issues; know that this is your body's way of insisting that you take it easy.
Neptune in your sector of creativity and celebrations can open up some pretty dreamy opportunities. Rose coloured romance and creative high-points will be the theme. You will become less concerned with power as you realize that allowing things to happen can be the most powerful influence of all. You may question what you have to offer; allowing your vulnerabilities to show will actually sooth your ego and increase acceptance of yourself.
Neptune's entrance into your home and family sector could make you feel temporarily adrift. Ties to the past and what you have accepted since childhood will be questioned and, in some cases, dissolved. Who you are based on family history will not be certain anymore but what's revealed will be more in line with your beliefs. This transit may bring up some wounds from childhood but this will be the time to heal them and move on. There's more compassion available to you than you think.
Neptune's transit of your communication sector heightens your imagination and softens your opinions. Much of what you decided on may be reconsidered over the coming years as fact looks like fiction and fiction becomes reasonable. Allow yourself to consider something new or irrational; clinging to old scraps of logic will only hold you back. Doubts about being heard or having your opinions respected may surface. The time is ripe to vocalize these feelings; people are paying attention.
As Neptune leaves your sign you can breath a sigh of relief. It hasn't been an easy transit; you've lost your way over the years, questioned yourself and your direction in life. Neptune leaves you with a deeper sense of empathy and the knowledge that you've arrived on the other side. As this planet enters your sector of resources, be prepared for a gradual shift in your financial and emotional status. What you think you need for your security is going to change, along with your values and self-esteem. Know that this transit will help you define a new set of values that will be beyond the control of others.
As Neptune comes home to your sign, you may feel a mix of doubt and excitement. What will it mean to empower yourself with the planet of dreams, spirituality and transcendence? Will you have more or less focus? Whatever happens, be assured that this transit will lead you in the direction you're meant to go. A creative, inspired path that will allow you to show the world (perhaps for the first time in your life) what you are truly capable of. Welcome to your new life.
