Neptune Transit My Ascendant – Part One: The Pisces

TequilaI’m about 28 in this story.  It includes my big mouth and various other character traits or flaws depending on your perspective. It’s wild astrology in the wild. Enjoy!

The Pisces

Pisces is a Neptune ruled sign associated with confusion and escapism, often through drug abuse, fantasy, and lapses of judgment, among other things. When a non-Pisces has a Neptune transit, they become Pisces-like and here’s a story. (swearing below the break)

I was in the middle of a Neptune transit. A big one. Translated, this means I was lost. In fact, I left my apartment on this day, pulled onto the 1-way street where I lived and headed in the wrong direction. Neptune confuses. I have natal Neptune on the midheaven so people often see me as “mixed up” and this was exacerbated by the transit.

I went out to a bar, to study astrology and have experiences while on this drug called Neptune. And to look for sperm too, since I wanted to have a baby and had my bio clock ticking.

I never do anything without a whole bunch of reasons, I’m a born multi-tasker. Some guy approached me.


“Hi,” I said.

“Er… can I talk to you?”

I turned a bar stool towards him with my foot in invitation. “Sure. Do you want to sit or do you think I might bore you?” I asked. I started work as a bartender when I was 15 years old so I was inordinately comfortable in them.

He sat. “No I don’t think you’ll bore me. Thank you, I’ll sit. Can I buy you a drink?” he asked.

I glanced at my half-empty glass. “Yeah.”

He signaled the bartender. ‘What is that? What are you drinking?”

“Orange Juice and soda,” I said.


“Orange Juice and soda. Soda water. Half and half.”

He stared.

“Plain orange juice is too thick,” I said staring back. “I’m just a girl,” I added with an eyebrow cocked.

“Are you drunk?” he asked.

“Are you kidding?”

“No. Are you drunk? I want to know.”

“No, I’m not drunk. I’m drinking OJ for chrissakes. How am I going to be drunk?”

“So you’re not drunk?”

“Drunk? No, I’m not drunk. Why the hell would I be drunk? Do I look drunk?” I was thinking it was textbook Neptune on the midheaven and people think I’m drunk.

“Yes,” he said, simply.


“I thought you were drunk when I came over here.”

“Well I guess you’re crazy then because I don’t drink and I’m not drunk.”

“That’s good.”

“Really? Are you glad for me?” I laughed at him.

“Because I’m a recovering alcoholic. I’m in AA and I’m not supposed to be around people who drink.”

“Okay but you’re in a bar so I guess you’re just really lucky, huh? To meet me?” I snorted at how ludicrous he was.

“You sure you’re not drunk?” he asked, suspiciously.

“Uh huh. It’s Neptoon,” I added.

“So do you come here a lot?”

I smiled because he ignored Neptoon. I figured he must really want to get laid and thinking that I laughed. As soon as I laughed I could see he thought I was drunk for sure, which made me laugh some more.

“Are you sure you’re not drunk?” he said.

“No, you son of a bitch!” I said, as my natal Mars Mercury kicked in. “I’m not drunk you dumb ass. How many times are you going to ask me? I haven’t been drunk since.. I don’t fuckin’ remember, all right? I haven’t been drunk in so long, I don’t even fuckin’ remember the last time I was! My God, whose dad are you? It’s OJ for chrissakes! O fuckin’ J!”

“Can I smell it? Because you sound like you’re drunk to me,” he said calmly, smiling.


“Your drink. I want to smell it.”

I leaned back and gave him a stare. “I oughta throw this drink in your face for even asking! But okay, suit yourself.” I slid my glass over to him, deciding to smile back. “But you’re beginning to bore me,” I said. “I was worried about you being bored but I should have been worried about me. You’re the boring one.”

He sniffed my glass. “There’s no alcohol in here.”

“Well, no shit. So are you going to invite me to dinner now?”

“Are you hungry?”

“Well yeah. I must be so drunk, I forgot to eat,”{ I said with a snort. He looked struck. “Relax,” I said. “It’s a joke, okay?”

He laughed. “I’d love to go to dinner with you. I think you’re my wildest dream.”

I laughed. but silently. “Okay, well I’m not surprised. It’s just Neptoon. Makes you think I am your wildest dream. Lemme just call the bartender down here and get myself a quart of tequila,” I said.


“For my purse.” I said withe a snort.

He stared.

“I’m just fucking with you because you smelled my drink. Actually I like you. Now where are we going to eat? You decide and I’ll follow you.”

“We can go in one car.”

“Well we could but we won’t. I may be drunk, but I’m not a stupid drunk.”

“Is that a joke?”

I shook my head. “Yes. I’m cute, I’m funny and I’m sober. I’m your wildest dream, remember? But if you ask me even one more time if I’m drunk, I am going to get very pissed off.”

“I bet you get really mad.”

“I do. I get mad as hell.”

“I like you.”

“I like you too. Let’s go.”

He pulled my stool out. “So do you want to be my girlfriend?”

He was a Pisces with a Scorpio Moon. Aries rising with Venus in Aries as I recall.

  1. time zone? I don’t get it. I live in CO, USA
    Patience? I was studying astrology! I had to get his data don’t you think? Plus I was hungry. May as well eat dinner, yes?

  2. Patience with him…I would have walked away…but I get the studying part. I worked at a bank where I needed to get the consumers’ driver’s license and I had a field day when couples came in and I would see alot of Pisces/Virgo matches and Leo’s with Scorpios…I was hooked–I was a nubbie then and thought it was all about the Sun-sign…little did I know.

  3. 🙂 that kind of story often hapend to me, I have neptoon on asc in scorp opp moon! people just don’t see me as I am even if I try hard, perhaps it’s me projecting too…for years I didn’t know who I was, but now at 45 I know ! I ?
    People also swore they’ve known me years ahead or have seen me here or there but it’s impossible.

  4. LOL!! I can see a Pisces with Venus in Aries being fascinated with your directness. Looking forward to reading the rest of the story. 🙂

    And you are soooo right about Neptune transits.

  5. ace writing elsa! makes me think that i really want to read that book you’ve been planning to release in the somewhere near, maybe far, maybe i have no clue- future. can’t wait to read the next part of this 😀

  6. Haha….ur so funny. I am picturing the whole scene in my head.., I have venus in aries myself and would have loved to meet someone as confident as u come off in this story…when they are sober. He has to have thought :! Girl got personality, and she’s not drunk! Too good to be true!

  7. What is up with you Pisceans and your unworkable relations, with married men, addicts, etc.? I met a Pisces girl the night before (We got midnight pizza!)and she told me that she is a fling with a divorced Orthodox Jewish man with three kids. She is also born Catholic. He calls her his shiksa and sneaks her into the house even though he lives alone so as not to be seen with a non Jewish girl. She asked me if that means he doesn’t respect her. I don’t know let me think.

  8. Dina: A pisces thrives on the ability to mother. On compassion. On lost causes and anything deeply romantic. It’s easy for a Pisces to stumble into territory others wouldn’t tread in the name of trying to help or not being able to help themselves to keep from it. Temptation is not something we’re known for resisting.

    • I agree but there comes a time when if it is too one sided it gets tiring and out of balance so the need to withdraw for oneself has to kick in to regain self care and not find resentment surfacing

  9. Oh, and also? REALITY of situations is one that we have to try hard to keep in focus. Pisces are not known for sticking to hard cold facts, when there’s another, softer, more dreamy way to slant things.

  10. I am answering the phone at work and I was reading something about NepTune and I was about to answer the phonee, “Good afternoon, Neptune” (may I help you)

  11. This was funny and could see much of my impatient intolerant younger self as a pisces 12th house sun mercury in aries 1st house tr pluto leo 5th sqr mars cancer 4th house with a cancer moon in all of this. I came to the site trying find other experiences of T neptune conj sun in 12th house and coming up to venus and asc as I head into my late 70’s and needing to go home to UK from Australia and looking for what mya be ahead of me. being a pisces 12th neptune hasnt been to bad apart from all the C lies and deceptions but I saw through this almost as soon as the big T came into power and the media started. have cut back on my alcohol consumption wanting a healthier older age and hopefully facing Neptune into Aries and 1st house around 2024. Great read and some insights so thank you <3
