Neptune in Pisces and the mutable signs
"Maybe the reason you can't choose is that you have not yet considered the most natural choice for you?"
That's been me with Neptune transiting my 2nd house, opposing my Virgo Moon in 8th. I chose and got mired in a convoluted, unnecessary, difficult path instead of recognizing what simply would've made me happy and was also the wisest choice. I vacillated too long and lost opportunities, got stuck in indecision over too many options to even recognize the best. Too foggy to even make the trip for my Solar Return. Still processing and discarding illusions, too impressionable.
BUT at least I have actually recognized this. Perhaps I can remember the lesson?
@cosmicbeast l have Neptune oppose natal Sun & Jupiter in the 10th house that's why l wondered how you experience it.
What l recognize from what you write is the fact that you are aware of the fact that your job sounds better then it is when you tell it to someone (you feel) . You become very aware of it in that moment and the Capricorn Saturn conjunction takes the 'flair' out of it for you keeping you very much grounded. It sounds good to me! The fact that it fluctuates it's normal with Neptune l guess...
Having a straight line carrier wise that takes me from school to the job is not my story l wish it was in a way but l guess l made it my life like this myself.
@warped yeah too many choices!! What feels natural is like HUH....error to my brain now! It might not be all that bad to try to figure this out..make a list l am so into lists lately l love dreaming on paper ..hm sure Pisces Neptune square Gemini Sun LOL..
l love dreaming up projects/businesses and write them down, planning..brainstorming but then l get deflated by the fact that l lack the drive!
l think partnering with someone now to tackle projects/business will HELP (me) big time!!!
Neptune has been quite a power player for me in transits, but I really have no idea what I'm in for since I've only experienced 2 of the 6 I have in my future. My chart is heavily mutable: 1' Sag asc, 4' Pisces Venus, 12' Virgo MC, 13' Pisces Merc, 21' Sag Saturn, and 26' Sag Uranus. It's only messed with my ascendant and Venus so far, they have been in terms of spiritual growth and appreciation of life the greatest years, and in terms of what is thought of as true maturity by most people is completely lost. I used to be such a good, well to do innocent person. But it was because I had absolutely no life. In 2012 when Neptune squared my ascendant, I was in my first serious relationship ever and by December we were over. We got into drugs together, something I really never was into before. All of a sudden I couldn't get enough of them, and we were only making it worse for each other.
I also wasn't much to look at. Not saying I'm a supermodel now but between that time and 2013 when it conjuncted my Venus I lost 40 pounds and as a result gained more confidence in who I had become. I also cut my hair short after being afraid of it. I managed to contain my drug habit but went to my first EDC in June, after my first Venus transit, and it wasn't until a couple of more times until I opened up to having a social life and completely coming out of my shell. I am an entirely different person right now. I look absolutely nothing like the person I was a little over 2 years ago. I act nothing like that person. I love this new person that I've grown to be, where in hindsight I didn't love myself at all. I still have my days, but who doesn't. My entire life was sleep, eat, and work for a really long time and for the first time I fell in love with myself.
By 2014 after a little more experience with this Venus-Neptune transit I had a great social life, I grew spiritually and accepted myself and others for who they are truly. I let my guard down so much more than ever. And got caught up in my Neptunian side in a bigger way than ever. It will leave my third house next June, just in time for my next EDC. Very curious on how this will play out as the 4th is the most confusing to me.
Neptune is also the closest planet I have in aspect to Venus, sextile 3'42a. I usually prefer not to go over 3 degrees especially with outers but I guess it seems relevant. My ascendant also is only aspected by a square to Venus. So it kind of feels like Neptune is causing something to emerge from within and it's been a much needed experience
I don't have transit Neptune aspecting any personal planets.
However, my husband is a Virgo and has mercury and sun (also pluto and uranus but I haven't noticed any direct effect on him from those or my own virgo pluto and uranus).
When transit Neptune was opposing his mercury (R) (which is conjunct his descendant) I noticed he was very difficult to communicate with. He couldn't seem to communicate clearly or effectively. This also caused some slight misunderstandings at his job. It still hasn't cleared his mercury all the way yet but is pulling away and I can see some clarity returning to him.
Right now transit Neptune is an applying closing in aspect to his Sun. It's not quite there but I can start to see the impact on him. He is getting excited about retiring from this particular job and moving onto something that really interests him as a career. He vacillates from time to time but all in all he's doing okay. He does have a Pisces ascendant though.
My oldest step-daughter has a Pisces IC and Neptune is transiting there. Right now it's going to make it's 3rd conjunction to her IC in Oct/Nov. The first time it conjuncted she became ill and was in and out of the ER but never got a firm diagnosis. They just told her it was allergies to the smog where she lives.
The second time I'm not sure what happened but she posted on her facebook "I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing as a career". Just a random post.
She currently has transit Neptune opposing her mars, sun, and MC. and suddenly decided to elope. She also claims she is pregnant but I'm not so sure. We shall see if she is or not. The reason I say that is because she has had ongoing issues distinguishing between reality as it is/and reality as she would have it to be.
Mars is the ruler of her 5th house (aries) she has transit mars inconjunct natal neptune. She has transit Neptune opposition natal mars. She has a solar arc coming up with SA mars square natal Neptune. That is the reason I have reservations. Neptune can make things unclear sometimes.
@fade what a great story! glad it turned out alright for you, it really sounds dreamy to me but you already have that dreaminess in your chart l guess, l hope the rest of the transits to your planets will bring more good stuff!
l have a weight issue now, l have stopped smoking and l put on 6 kgs in 5 months, trying hard to keep this under control with food and sports...but ok not easy loosing the weight! l keep believing one day l will, this is not the worst...
@momof5 thanks for sharing! l think it would be easier to see changes in someone's behavior in a way then see yourself clearly. l hope your stepdaughter will be ok! She has a lot on her plate for sure...sounds tough if she already has issues...
I've had Neptune squaring my Gemini Mars-Sun conjunction for almost two years, now it's backing into 1° from Sun again so when it's turns direct I should be finally free!! It's been bad, feeling completely lost (still am) and also extremely fatigued, later this year Saturn will be squaring this conjunction so out of the Woods into the forest so to say 🙁
