Hi Kristin, cat, Linda, and Skywalker,
Ok, we have now reached our final step in our Neptune thread. Yesterday I posted a little part of the Neptune transit and now the rest is being posted. So here it is.
THE TRANSIT OF NETPUNE
The bottom line in this transit is the ongoing evolutionary nature of the totality of all consciousness on Earth, and how this comes into the individual consciousness of the Soul. Each individual within the totality is affected in their own unique way relative to their total evolutionary conditions and, at the same time, experiencing what all other humans are experiencing in the world: the individual country where they live, and the specific groups of people in that country: whether it is Iraq, Rwanda, Ukraine, Samoa Island, etc. All of these individual consciousnesses all add up to and correlate with the total amount of humans which creates the collective consciousness so that each individual Soul’s consciousness is then simultaneously evolving at every moment in time as a REACTION to the collective consciousness ! In turn each individual Soul consciousness that is evolving according to it’s own evolutionary condition then affects the collective at any moment in time that then correlates to the evolutionary nature of the human race itself.
All of the archetypes that we have talked about that correlate with Neptune, Pisces, and the 12th House are occurring and interacting at every moment in time for each individual as well as the totality of all humans: the collective consciousness. The planetary rulers of the North and South Nodes of Neptune, Uranus and the Sun, correlate to additional archetypes that, in total, correlates to individual and collective dynamics that SERVE TO DEFINE THE NATURE OF EACH MOMENT THAT THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE COLLECTIVE IS CREATING AND EXPIERNCING.
As you at this very moment are reading these words you are experiencing the ‘world’ around you as it is: all the events going on in the world, your country, your region, your city, your group or tribe of like minded Souls, and your own individual Soul reality within all of this.
THIS IS YOUR LIVING EXPERIENCE OF NEPTUNE ! THESE IS NEPTUNE’S CONSCIOUSNESS. RIGHT NOW, AND IN EVERY OTHER MOMENT IN TIME. THIS IS THE NATURAL TRIAD OF CONSCIOUSNESS SYMBOLIZED BY THE MOON, YOUR EGO, PLUTO YOUR SOUL, AND NEPTUNE ITSELF: YOUR INDIVIDUALIED CONSCIOUSNESS RELATIVE TO THE COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS OF ALL HUMANS.
With the transit of Neptune in Pisces the core issues for each individual, and thus the collective, correlate to that which is true, and that which fiction is where fiction is a function of projected beliefs that are only ‘real’ because they are ‘believed’ in. Remember the projection that occurs relative to Neptune manifests from it’s S.Node being in Aquarius. Aquarius correlates with projection just as the Source of All Things, Neptune, projected the manifest Creation in the first place. Thus, the individualized consciousness of each Soul as well as the collective of other Souls manifesting as groups of people of like mind, whole races of humans, countries, regions within countries, all project beliefs that define the nature of individual and collective consciousness relative to the specific nature of whatever the beliefs are.
As a result individuals and whole groups of humans everywhere can create a ‘reality’ that is defined by these projected beliefs whether those beliefs are actually true or not. Each individual can be influenced by the collective group consciousness in the form of behavioral contagion because, in the end, the human species is a innately social in nature: like cows.
Relative to the four natural states of evolution where the consensus state is roughly seventy percent of all humans this then means that seventy percent of any population will desire to CONFORM with the consensus beliefs of whatever groups of people they find themselves in: countries, races, religions, and so on. As a result of this we can then have the majority of peoples in various groups around our Earth who ‘believe’ in the projected ‘realities’ that they manifest whether they are actually true or not. Thus, whole populations and groups of people, Souls, can be living in an almost total state of delusion yet believe those delusions to be real. Such delusions are then reinforced within these various groups because such groups will rebel, Uranus/Aquarius, against any other group whose realities defined by their own projected beliefs differ from their own.
The sad fact is that human beings can literally make themselves believe anything. It is only limited by the power of imagination. All’s one has to do is open up any newspaper, visit the Internet, listen television and the radio, tune into some random conversation going around oneself, etc, to know just how unhinged and ‘crazy’ human beings can make themselves relative to their beliefs. With Neptune transiting Pisces this craziness of what people can make themselves believe accelerates and infuses the collective consciousness as a result. Since all human Souls are part of the collective consciousness this can create a real feeling in Souls that remain grounded in that which is true versus not to feel like they themselves are going crazy. This can lead to a real sense of exasperation that affects the individual Soul consciousness to either try to do something about it and/or to desire to withdraw from the increasingly crazy world where white seems to be black, up seems to be down, and chaos seems to just around the corner.
Differing beliefs within the collective consciousness of various groups of humans creates a psychological insecurity that is perceived as threatening to their need to be consistent in their delusive beliefs. So we end up will all kinds of groups of people who then desire to self segregate from other groups in order to feel secure where security is dependent on the need to be self consistent. To be self consistent each group self segregates in such a way as to reinforce TOGETHER their delusive projected beliefs.
These binding archetypes in the consciousness of the Soul thus can cause groups of people conflicting with one another where the nature of the conflicts can be as small as they can be large and traumatic. Human history from the time of around 7,200 B.C.E, the South Node of Aquarius, forwards is testimony enough to this fact. The most extreme examples of this correlate with genocides of one group attempting to exterminate another group of peoples.
At the time of this writing the transit of Uranus, the planetary ruler of the S.Node of Neptune, is in Aries. All over our Earth we have large and small conflicts, wars, and one group attempting to dominate into submission, Neptune in Pisces, other groups of people who differ in their own projected beliefs. The underlying issue, again, in the nature of beliefs that they define the nature of the consciousness whether that is an individual, or whole groups of people. The Sun rules the N.Node Of Neptune in Leo. Thus, this gives ‘purpose’ to that which is believed in, it gives a way to actualize that purpose where that purpose is defined by the nature of the beliefs themselves, and for the individual and the group to integrate, Sun, their whole lives around.
With Pluto transiting in Capricorn as of this writing we can now understand how all the different ‘strata’ of each countries societies interacts within themselves as defined by the nature of the projected beliefs existing in all the different strata of whatever societies of peoples in whatever countries: Capricorn. Within this we see yet again the specter of nationalism in almost all lands and how nationalism is used as propaganda, beliefs, to justify the actions of the leaders of various countries who are creating conflicts with other countries, and their populations of people.
This then applies to all kinds of human issues such as immigration issues, economic issues, educations issues, one country trying to dominate or take over another country, and so on. The events that lead to World War Two started with Uranus in Aries, and Pluto in Cancer: the natural polarity to Capricorn. As these initial events in the early 1930’s lead to the actual war as Uranus moved into Taurus, survival, and Pluto moved into Leo that lead to the need to recreate the world after this war. And because of this war it also lead to the invention, Uranus/Aquarius of the atom bomb: Pluto. The ‘belief’ of the one who invented it, Oppenheimer, was that if he created such a weapon of massive destruction that this would end all wars. Oppenheimer convinced himself, made himself believe, that GOD gave him this power to invent this atom bomb. Of course his personal belief system came from India and focused on the God “Shiva”: the power of destruction and creation.
When the USA dropped the bombs on Japan the transiting Pluto was exactly conjunct it’s N.Node. It not only changed the world, but propelled that country into becoming what it became. Whole groups of people, countries, suddenly, S.Node of Neptune in Aquarius, became realigned because of this new power caused by the invention of this weapon. The affect within the collective consciousness of all humans was unalterably changed.
We all know this recent history. It included the evil of Hitler that lead to the genocide of the Jews, Gypsies, and all who considered as ‘undesirables’. And, again, it was the function of beliefs that was the fuel of collective and individual Soul consciousness that created these events.
In the 1820’s the transit of Neptune, with Uranus, were both in Capricorn. Remember Uranus is the natural ruler of Neptune’s S.Node in Aquarius. As an example of beliefs being used to justify one group of people creating genocide on another group of people this correlates with the ‘Monroe Doctrine’ and ‘Manifest Destiny’ that was used by the government of America to commit genocide upon it’s native population: the American Indians. Here again see the specter of nationalism being used as the rationale as well as the artificial beliefs that the Caucasian people were far superior to brown skinned American Indians.
That transit also correlated to the Industrial Revolution which needed to occur for the humans race because of the increasing amount of the human population that required a radical alteration of how humans organized themselves in order to met the needs and demands of the increasing population of humans. A classic example of ‘need being the mother of invention’. And what was then invented altered forever how the human race lived on this planet, and with one another.
And, as an example of how history can repeat itself when Neptune was in Pisces the last time in conjunction with Uranus in Aries this correlates with the CRIMIAN WAR.
So the underlying issue within this is whether that which is believed in actually true or not. Beliefs have many forms and types. From religious, cosmological, philosophical, political, economic, to human interactions of all kinds: family members, wives and husbands, lovers, friendships, employee and employers, to specific events where humans interact in some way.
When beliefs that are projected into any of these humans dynamics that are not true it will cause some kind of wounding to those whom are the recipient of such projections. Those who have been wounded by such projected beliefs can, in turn, can project back upon the source of their wounding with their own projected beliefs. This cycle can become un-ending. Within this is the fact that any Soul who projects beliefs of any kind that are not actually true is in reality wounding themselves. They wound themselves because they are believing in something that is not true. This type of wound is the wound of delayed evolution until the nature of the delusive belief(s) are pierced with the actual truth.
There always in an underlying truth to any given phenomena. That underlying truth is not a function of beliefs because the truth does not require beliefs BECAUSE IT IS TRUE. When that which is actually true interfaces with delusive projected beliefs that result leads to a disillusionment that itself leads to a potential variety of reactions depending on the underlying and existing context of the individual Soul’s overall reality, specific types of groups of people, races of people, and whole countries.
The Neptune archetype of disillusionment is necessary to counteract any delusion or illusion so that an alignment with what is actually true can occur. When such a realignment takes place this then allows for an acceleration in the evolutionary intentions for each Soul, and it’s consciousness. To the extent that any Soul continues to blind themself to the actual truth, to hang on to their delusions and illusions at all costs, which means to sustain their delusive sense of security that is defined by the need to self consistent, such a Soul is essentially marking time relative to their own ongoing evolution. The sense of psychological security and the need to be self consistent correlates to Cancer which is part of the natural triad with Scorpio and Pisces.
The opportunity that the transit of Neptune provides for all Souls is to become aware of that which is delusional and illusionary in their lives versus what the actual truth is. To become aware of the truth of something, despite how bitter that may be, or how revelatory it can also be, is allow the evolution of the consciousness of the Soul to proceed. The realization of what is true about something does not always mean this occurs through the experience of disillusionment. The truth of something can be realized relative to something that the Soul has been wondering about, pondering about, or attempting to know in various activities like astronomy, some mystical need defined by a question, the motives of another, the reasons for this or that, and so on. The need to know the truth in this way for those types of reasons is also a key to accelerating the evolution of the Soul’s consciousness.
If we remember that one of the core archetypes of Neptune is that which correlates with the need for meaning in our lives, including ultimate meaning, we can also see how it can correlate with meaninglessness. During the Neptune transit this can correlate to a progressive inner sense of meaninglessness relative to something that had held real meaning, including ultimate meaning, up until the transit impacted on that. With the S.Node of Neptune in Aquarius in mind this starts with a progressive detachment that leads to dissolving of the prior meaning totality. As this occurs the consciousness of the Soul can feel very adrift, out to sea, no land in site, floundering within a sense of meaninglessness that is not immediately replaced by anything.
The temptation when this occurs is to replace, immediately, that which is dissolving into meaninglessness with something, anything, that will recreate a sense of meaning for which has been lost. Temptation, as an archetype, correlates with Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th House which is, again, part of the natural trinity or triad with Neptune, Pisces, and the 12th House, and Cancer, the Moon, and the 4th House. This then correlates with a time frame in which the Soul must be very careful in terms of what it is choosing to do, that which will recreate the sense of meaning that was lost. This is a natural time in which the Soul by way of the ‘inner whispers’ from the Source of All Things is being asked to have an essential ‘faith’ that what the next steps are to recreate that sense of lost meaning will reveal or present itself in it’s own time.
The problem and issue for most Souls is that the actual whispers from the Source Of All Things that correlate with those steps is initially ever so faint. The whispers initially are sporadic as well. This is exactly where the temptation of the Soul asserts itself where whatever the temptations are that offer some ‘quick fix’ from the sense of meaningless, the sense of despair, of sorrow even, are all to often set into motion by the opposite of the Source Of All Things. That which we call Evil, or the Devil. The reason that this can occur is the very existence of what we call Evil, Lucifer, the Devil is dependent on Souls doing anything other than desiring to know their true Source, to replace that which is lost with something that directly leads the way back HOME where home is the Source Of All Things.
So the quick fix manifesting as this temptation or that can seem so attractive, so ‘right, that whatever it is is the actual answer to the Soul’s prayers or anguish. When any Soul makes choices to follow such quick fixes in the form of these types of temptations then, of course, the very thing that recreates the sense of meaning in order to replace the meaningless itself becomes a source of meaninglessness itself. Round and round the Soul will go until it realizes that it must be patient so that the original whispers that actually come from the Source Of All Things, whispers that actually reflect the individual consciousness of the Soul, it’s existing context, correlate with it’s own next evolutionary steps in some way, become ever louder, more frequent, and create a real sense of Soul meaning.
When the consciousness of the individual Soul responds in this way to that which has been dissolved into meaninglessness by making choices to act upon the whispers from the Source Of All Things then this will lead to a true and real sense of meaning that will be sustained for some time, as well as allowing the Soul to actually evolve according to it’s own individual evolutionary journey.
Beyond the immediacy of whatever the circumstances that have lead to this the opportunity within the Neptune transit is to reflect, to turn inwards, in such a way as to have a determined intent to reflect in hindsight upon the Souls entire life in order to become aware of any and all delusions, illusions, self deceptions, being deceived by others, and deceiving others. Once identified the next step is then to make the effort to understand the inner dynamics within the consciousness of the Soul that have been responsible for this. The self-knowledge that is thus gained and APPLIED allows the Soul to accelerate upon it’s own evolutionary path and trajectory.
This is why it is essential as Evolutionary Astrologers to understand the individual context of any Soul’s reality: where it has been, where it is now, and where it intends to go. The entire Evolutionary Paradigm that exists in all birth charts for all Souls is that which allows us to understand this. It is the exact individual context of the consciousness of the Soul. So when trying to understand the Neptune transit in our or our clients lives it is essential to understanding as deeply as possible the individual evolutionary journey for the Soul relative the the Evolutionary Paradigm: the natal position of Pluto, it’s polarity point, the S.Node of the Moon by it’s own house and sign, the location of it’s planetary ruler by it’s own house and sign with aspects to all these points from other planets, the N.Node of the Moon by it’s own house and sign, the location of it’s planetary ruler by it’s own house and sign, and all the aspects to these points from other planets.
Wherever the actual transit of Neptune in Pisces is, or whatever sign it can be in, relative to the house it is transiting must involve the understanding of the Evolutionary Paradigm. In addition, it is necessary to locate and understand the transits of the natural planetary rulers of Neptune’s South and North Nodes: Uranus, and the Sun. All the archetypes that correlate to Neptune, as detailed in this book, as well as Uranus and the Sun are active at any moment in time as symbolized by the location of the houses and signs that they are transiting.
Neptune correlates to that which needs to be dissolved in order for Soul growth to occur, with the nature of our existing delusions/ illusions can exist that need to be confronted with actual reality so that evolution of the Soul can proceed by way of replacing them with the actual truth, of where emotional and instability of the consciousness of the Soul can occur and for what reasons, how to heal that emotional and instability if it is existing, of where we have been and are deceiving ourself and for what reasons and/or how we have allowed ourselves to be deceived and for what reasons, of where our Souls are creating events and circumstances that do not take responsibility for which leads to the feeling of being victimized, of where we can be victimizing others by way of making others scapegoats for that we, in the end, we are responsible for, of where the impact of the collective consciousness on our individual lives can be the most extreme leading to a feeling being out of control in our own lives, of where the Soul can actually influence the existing state of the collective consciousness by way of their own actualization of their unique Soul consciousness and it’s capacities, AND WHERE THE WHISPERS FROM THE SOURCE OF ALL THINGS manifest within each individualized Soul consciousness that allow for a quickening of the evolutionary pace if acted upon. Such whispers from eternity, God/ess, are the individualized messages that allow of an inner alignment of the individualized Soul consciousness WITH IT’S SOURCE.
In conjunction with Neptune the transiting Uranus, the planetary ruler of Neptune’s South Node, correlates with the archetype of FREEDOM FROM THE KNOWN. Wherever this transit is by house and sign location, aspects that it is making to other planets, correlates simultaneously with the past of the Soul that is interfacing in each moment, Neptune, that then allows from a freedom the that known past by way of liberating from it. Liberating from it means to become inwardly aware, attuned, to messages, whispers, from the Source Of All Things wherein the nature of those messages is to not only leave the past behind, the parts of the past that are no longer necessary, for the ongoing evolutionary growth of the Soul itself. These whispers, messages, reflect and symbolize a revolutionizing of that past that metamorphose into the Soul’s evolutionary future: to sustain the parts of the past, the inner dynamics that have caused it, that are still relevant to the Soul’s evolving future with the messages that allow that future to manifest.
In combination with Neptune these messages, whispers, directly correlate with the individual consciousness of the Soul: where it has been, where it is now, and where is going as defined and symbolized the the EVOLUTIONARY PARADIGM itself. As such, the nature of the whispers and messages are directly linked with that unique nature of any given Soul. Uranus correlates with an acceleration of the evolutionary intentions of any given Soul when the messages, whispers, from the Source Of All Things become ‘quickened’ by way of Uranus. So the originally faint and relatively distant messages that correlate with Neptune become ever more conscious within the consciousness of the Soul by way of this quickening. The once distant billboard is now becoming ever closer.
Sometimes the nature of these message and whispers demands a complete break from the past: a total letting go in order to start anew. Other times these messages and whispers simply demands that we add onto some existing reality that is in place, a reality that is still serving the evolutionary intentions of the Soul. In either case a quickening of the evolutionary pace will take place. Sometimes these messages and whispers will seem to be very radical to the individualized consciousness of the Soul as compared to what the existing reality is. It is not uncommon for Soul’s to resist these messages and whispers, to detach from them, to create the rationalization that, indeed, they are to radical that would require, if acted upon, to total upsetting of their existing reality. In other words, the Soul can make itself feel insecure and ungrounded, Neptune, if it actually considered taking action of these messages. A typical reaction of this type manifests as ‘well, this is crazy, this is delusional, or I will do this at some other time’. In so doing the Soul then creates a reality for itself that is essentially marking time in an evolutionary sense.
The natural quickening of the messages of Neptune to Uranus manifests wherein the messages and whispers become progressively repeating within the individualized consciousness of the Soul. This is intentional from the point of view of the Creator Of All Things. This is how God/ess attempts to get the ATTENTION OF THE SOUL ITSELF. These messages will now be a combination, a synthesis, of whatever the house and sign of the Neptune transit is taking place within with the house and sign of the Uranus transit. Within this the aspects that both planets are making to other natal planets, their own house and sign locations, will contribute to what the very nature is of these whispers and messages from eternity.
Again, these messages and whispers will become progressively repetitious: like a knocking on the door. Relative to the temptations of Evil. of Lucifer or the Devil, these repeating and progressively repetitious messages and whispers will be interfered with. This interference will manifest ‘sudden’ ideas that seem to come from nowhere that create a real sense of Soul excitement in terms of how tempting they can be. Yet these types of Lucifer induced messages do not have the ongoing repetitious nature of the actual messages and whispers from God/ess. They come, and they go. If a given Soul chooses to act upon them they are inevitably met with some kind of traumatic event that pops the balloons of delusion being influenced by Lucifer itself. The intent, from Lucifer's point of view, is to keep the Soul ensnarled with delusions in such a way as to prevent the inner alignment of the Soul with it Maker by way of the whispers from eternity that the Maker is inducing in the individualized consciousness of the Soul.
There are of course times in the life of almost all Souls in which the very nature of the circumstances that it has created for itself that ignite and inner feeling of hopelessness, of reaching a dead end with no way out, of desperation's that can be so intense that they induce an inner feeling of hysteria, an sense of not being able to change or alter the circumstances themselves. At these times many Souls inwardly or outwardly pray, or ask for some kind of divine or supernatural help from whatever the circumstances are that are causing this psychological state for the Soul. The Soul needs help, an intervention, to change that which can seem so hopeless and futile.
Many times, not always of course, if the Soul is sincere enough, and it not bound by some karmic determinant that requires that whatever the conditions are that are causing this inner psychology of the Soul, The Source Of All Things can in fact intervene to help change or create relief in some way from those conditions. When this happens it seems to the Soul that some kind of miracle has taken place, that the answers to the prayers have been realized.
The N.Node of Neptune in Leo, again, is ruled by the Sun. The Sun correlates to how we integrate the very purposed of our lives, of how we go about actualizing and integrating those purposes. Thus, the natal Sun in combination with the transiting Sun both correlate to how the Soul is meant to integrate, actualize, and give purpose too the ongoing evolution of the Soul relative to all the archetypes of Neptune and Uranus that we have been discussing.
It should be clear from the point of view of Evolutionary Astrology that a total and complete understanding of the natal Evolutionary Paradigm serves as the foundation, the individualized consciousness of the Soul, needs to be understood. From that foundation the Evolutionary Astrologer then understands how to understand an integrate the evolving, transiting, nature of this paradigm manifesting as the transits of Pluto, the North and South Nodes of the Moon, and the transits of their natural planetary rulers but to now add to that foundation and context the understanding of the Neptune transit itself which includes the transits of the natural planetary rulers of its’s own North and South Nodes.
If you have any questions please ask them of me now.
I would also like to have us work with any birth chart of your choosing to do an EA analysis of the Neptune transit that involves all or some of the archetypes that have just been discussed.
God Bless, Rad
