With Mercury Retro-bats in Pisces, it is of course a brilliant time to do a bit of retrospective analysis re cycles in our lives and what better influence to look at than Neptune?  The ruler of Pisces is newly in Pisces (till 2027) and so brilliantly placed.

But even leaving aside what Neptune is doing in your chart (eg; on your Moon or in your 7th House or whatever) Neptune eras do resonate differently from one another. Yes, so do Pluto and Uranus eras but Neptune is your dreamscape, your psyche, your shamans, your mojo….YOUR MEDICINE.

So here are the last three Neptune eras – look at them as if they were in fact distinct eras in your life (you only get to do a couple if you’re born in the 80s or beyond lol) and await the O.M.G insight. Discuss.

Neptune In Saggo: 1971 to 1984
Neptune in Capricorn: 1984 to 1997
Neptune in Aquarius: 1998 to 2012.

These are approximate in that Neptune goes in and out of a sign before getting in there properly (cue Pisces sex joke but i am not making it, not today) but they’re perfectly fine for the purpose of this post as we are thinking in great big broad swathes of time here.  We’re doing epoques.

Thoughts?

Hi all,

Saw the post and decided it may have been secret code from my M to call in..

Interesting the way Daemon is spelled ( or spelt )

Both correct grammar according my Oxford dictionary.

I think I recall the Greeks referring to the fact that all humans have ‘Daemon”.

It represents the link between human and spiritual realms I believe.

Regards,

Damon.

I am thrilled because for me this Neptune era journeys from my 12th on and the cast of conjunctions includes Saturn, Venus, Chiron, and eventually my Ascendant. Loads of in service to others work for me right now – maybe for the next fourteen + years … Trying to keep it via creative pathways.

Wanting to be and to be seen as fearless I stand my ground and do battle when necessary (though with time I’ve refined my definition of “necessary”). However if I feel utterly threatened by someone/thing I either can not comprehend, predict or conquer I will find a way separate myself off from it.

If the little four year old lamb became freaked by her ability she likely fled from that mountain.

I have Neptune transiting my 4 house….

…. it has been pouring rain for the last 3 days which is really abnormal for the beginning of March in Canada. The craziest part is that we now have leaks all over the ceiling, a water pump problem which make taking shower, dishes, flushing toilet a lot more complicated. All these water issues are coming up. Anybody else with Neptune transiting their 4 house are having water issues related to their home???

so, im a pisces new moon person with virgo rising. i was born when neptune was capricorn. the whole time it was in aquarius, 6th house for me, i feel like most people were pretty much making me their bitch. lately, while theres been this pisces stellium, it seems like everything is going my way. i also think its been really good astro for womenfolk in general. twice last week, in the middle of the night, sitting on my porch, smoking, i heard two different women take their male partner outside and dress him down at the top of their… Read more »

Fascinated by this! I’m a Cancer with Cap rising/Aqua moon. Neptune in Sag- amazing childhood. Neptune in Cap- fantastic adolescence. I always adore Aqua energy but for some reason Neptune in Aqua was such a fuqing test for me. Maybe early adulthood is a test for most? There were a million beautiful moments and strong friendships formed, but it was largely a very glamorous-looking life that didn’t leave me feeling nourished. Overall, illusory as hell. Once Neptune went into Pisces I felt better, way more grounded, suddenly clearer on what I wanted and how to make it happen.

also a 1980 baby. Don’t have much feedback on Neptune in Sagg, although the description of that as a natal placement does fit. Amazing to me how it fits like a puzzle piece with other things in my chart. Neptune in Cap, ages 4-17/18, I guess lots of feeling socially awkward, being shy, etc. Stressful family dynamics. Neptune in Aqua, I turned 18, moved across the country and started living life the way I wanted to-Aries sun Aqua rising-lots of adventures. Massage school, rock climbing, skiing ,fighting wildfire, yoga teacher training, work for some great spas and a heli-skiing company,… Read more »

Made my timely entrance into this realm with Neptune on my NN in Sagg/9th house. Passionate about nature, music, art. Created up a storm, danced, climbed trees & played in the creek. Loved learning but hated school: too structured and forced, school. Artificial. Neptune in Cap, more of the same. Learned how to play music & instruments. Learned how to escape via the arts, came to understand the connection between the arts & rejuvie. Left the countryside for an adventure in an artsy urbania; mapped the city parks straight away. Immersion in other ethnicities & religious traditions. Found tobacco &… Read more »

I am not sure what signs Neptune creates in us but I will say this: End of Neptune in Cap, 1997: I started a relationship with a married man that lasted until 2000. / working for a great company that gave me impressive career growth. Neptune in Aqua (1998 – 2012): 1998: still with great company working in a great department that I love. 2000: married man leaves me / I lose sight of life, very sad / but still with great company 2000 – 2009: in the martial arts that moved me from sad to completely confident and stable… Read more »

1st house: House of Self
Neptune natally stationed in Scorpio
So what I went thru since 1998 totally makes sense to help improve my “self”..

5th house: House of Pleasure
Neptune transitioning Pisces
Right now, the transition is not helping my “house of pleasure”. It’s more “house of emotional pain”

I’m a 1980 baby, Moon-Mars-Neptune in Sag all almost dead conjunct. Each of those eras is pretty clearly marked for me, Neptune in Aqua lasted from 17-31 so a pretty defining era whatever the astro, it was transiting my 11th house and I suppose looking back that makes sense in many ways. Have had Neptune into my 12th house for quite a while though thanks to the worlds biggest 12th house, super massive, intercepted. Got 6 planets in it right now, so yeah trying to catch that slippery Piscean energy and use it for good.

Wholly FUQ – my life can be divided into these eras. Wow. Neptune in Sag – childhood adoption, doing amazing at school – Neptune in Capricorn 1984 all turns to crap – sexual assault that was life changing running from it failing school and bring everything totally Capricorn like – have Neptune rising in Sag in my chart Crap jobs, crap relationships, crap money but travel with circus and lots of interesting experiences. Bring on Neptune in Aqua my moon sign 1997 – go to counselling re sexual assult and really get my act together emotionally and physically then have… Read more »

Totally off topic but read the title and thought of matt Damon. My own personal one. Sweet!

Sag era was fun, cap era sucked away a lot of fun, aqua era made me try the things I had thought about doing during cap era but was thwarted by being too scared/sensible.

Yep. Neptune In Saggo: 1971 to 1984 – Birth to beginning of boarding school (big change, and no going back either).. Neptune in Capricorn: 1984 to 1997 – Beginning of boarding school, followed by two gap years and uni, ending in the year my son was conceived. Neptune in Aquarius: 1998 to 2012 – The year my son was born, his whole life, death, my technical existence and attempt to see the point in anything, while also doing what I coukd to support myself and help others). Neptune in Pisces – Square my natal Neptune and conjunct my natal Mars.… Read more »

(oops) … I won’t see Neptune in Aries if I don’t.

Pressed send too soon, but was really noticing the eras of my life, down to a tee. Thankfully, it is a little too early to see what Neptune in Pisces will really mean for me.

Natal Neptune Sagg – deep unconscious created.

Throughout Neptune in Capricorn – i daydreamed – in school, at home, in dance class, chronic escapism. I dreamed of horses. And living where I did not.

Neptune in Aqua – I dreamed love, and babies, and family, and belonging and independence, it became a bit nightmarish and I woke up.

I wouldn’t say i was ‘free’ during the Neptune in Sag era but i certainly felt and acted like i was. I knew i could be anything, do anything. Neptune in Capricorn saw me having to get real and build structure, follow duties, establish a career. In the middle of it i went to Japan and this refined my sense of craft and social manners, my sense of service culture and of duty. I loved working, and still do. I was very much into building “home” even though i moved a lot, and did so through my possessions. But the… Read more »

So interesting! Very distinct eras, though I’m not entirely sure how the placements would have had their respective affects. Will need to look more closely at my chart for that. Neptune in Cap (opposite sun) = birth to first year of high school. I was bold, confident, and entitled. Neptune in Aqua (on my moon in 8th house) = the beginning of several years of intense bullying, which led to cripplingly low self-esteem and has continued to take a toll on my personal relationships. Culminated last year in an intense heartbreak that left me flailing about. Hopefully Neptune in Pisces… Read more »

Neptune in Saggo – childhood – reading and drawing a lot. Wish I were in an environment which valued dreams. Neptune in Cap – schools – lots of confusion about rote learning. My Cap Moon did its best to cope with the school system. Neptune in Aqua – early adulthood responsibilities – trying to be someone I was never meant to be. Neptune in Pisces – time to bow down to Life. This Merc Rx in my 12th house now occupied with other assorted planets is heavier than the Mercury Rx in other houses – most of the time I… Read more »

Interesting….. for me, they mirror Significant Other relationship turning points…. beginnings and endings, all the way back to when my father left home….. *cue psychoanalytical pondering*… met Love of My Life #1 in 1984….. and Love of my Life #2 in 1997.

Awesome.

its only recently that I’ve had much to do with Neptune, or should I say noticed it really.
By the end of April I will have a neptune trine neptune transit from my natal nep in scorpio 5th house to nep in pisces my 9th. Concurrently, saturn in scorp is conjuncting natal neptune and sextiling natal saturn. Soon after uranus in aries trines natal uranus in leo and heads towards my sun.
I’m expecting big things !

I’m expecting big things, ha, after reading quite a few interps the Neptune trine should be called the ‘better get in touch with spirit because your going to be dead soon’ transit, we all get it mid fifties. Not many astrologers seem to have come to grips with it to my satisfaction. The Uranus trine hits at 28 yrs and again mid 50’s. Lets just say astrologers view of the latter one should be called the ‘last attempt of Uranus to kick ones ass’ transit, cause after this one it doesn’t give a fuq. Interps also suggest that if its… Read more »

Neptune in Saggo = childhood, afflicted but stable in the domestic sense

Neptune in Cap = breakdown of family unit, life of drifty abandonment in young adulthood

Neptune in aquarius = my own family, children, marriage (yes in that order) and separation from alco abusive ex

Neptune in Pisces = era of me 🙂 so far – growth, development, healing, love – next up, achievement, abundance!

Definite eras. Sag era was grade school and into high school. Secure upbringing in close family. Neptune in Cap (my moon) = high school, college, masters and more. I was good at school. Ended with professional degree. Not the easiest times job-wise for me. ever. First Guld war. Second Gulf war. I was not part of the “the futire is so bright I gotta Wear shades (generation yes) group- no. I feel like I was never part of the group. Always doing my own thing. Then came Aqua.

Interesting… Born with neptune conj sun in early saggo – cue spending most of my childhood with my head in the clouds. Drawing, reading sci-fi/fantasy/adventure books. Neptune into cap sees me into high school and into teen rebellion, drug use, general distain for most of the world, dropping out of uni, work, society until… Neptune into aqua – rediscovery of purpose, back to uni, get my degree (with honours!), then into work for some of the best practices in Brisbane. This also has me in total relationship chaos – generally unable to make anything work for more than a couple… Read more »

I’m aqua rising but fairly late so Pisces is technically second house but in fact is far more in my first house.

I’m Aqua Sun in the 8th house, and It’s almost like I forgot that Neptune was in Aquarius during all those years because I have a whole bunch of stuff in Pisces anyway, including Moon and I sort of seem to have lived from my Moon more than my Sun in my lifetime.. … but the beginning of that period, 1998, was when I was right out of graduate school and then got completely side-tracked out of pursuing my career in natural medicine, and got in a relationship that proved to be extremely abusive. I didn’t start to get serious… Read more »

Funny how the power of the dynamics of coming from an alcoholic family persist through the years….the denial…blocking it out…all that. So fitting that I forgot to mention that in 1984, the year Neptune moved into Cap, that my mother’s alcoholism started to become very apparent and wrecked havoc on our family and it’s interesting because she didn’t get full on sober until 1997/98 after her second DUI, and Neptune left Cap. That was one heck of a Neptune transit for her! She’s a Virgo Sun, natal Neptune in Libra.

Hey there flowerchild, I have mars and moon in Pisces too! I also had hippie parents, doin the living semi self sufficient life (so many wonderful skills and knowledges I have learnt through this) but I also had a parent with a terrible alcohol problem, that has left its pain on our family – massively and to this day we are still processing the crap…

Wow, a kindred spirit! I wonder if moon and mars in pisces could somehow indicate alcoholic parents?

Best wishes to you! I am still processing the crap, too……the patterns still show up so insidiously…
After I wrote that long one above, it made me reflect on my family history and I felt sick and depressed. Was interesting to look at it all through the lens of Neptune. Alcohol is certainly a Neptunian substance, too.

Yes mars – father… In Pisces – alcohol… And I think all of two of my siblings have Pisces mars or and moon and another two have rising…. lovely to connect w you flower child…. It is depressing thinking about it, however it taught me so much about health also, the light side of the shadow…

saggi= baby. cap schmap- materialism, insecurity, dutifully being a good girl. hungry ghosts and childhood/teenage angst. meh meh meh meh meh. but aqua!! sheer brilliance. began with physical freedom, finished with freedom of information and inspiration. complete worship of the mind, the future, the zap – a repressed wild child gemini’s wet dream. 🙂

Daemon? Whenever I see that spelling, I think of Unix software. The original unix geeks really did think of their software as little daemons under the control of a god-like ruler. God sleeps while the daemons are in control, then the daemons go back to sleep when their job is done, and god wakes up and takes back control. Except this god is called “launchd” (d for daemon) and all it does is decide which daemons get control next. But what power that is! So maybe that’s the metaphor, mentioning the epochs of Neptune got me thinking of it. Run… Read more »

Neptune in Saggi I was a little one. It was a time of abundance for us as a family and quite social. We moved house/areas/schools because the recession hit when Neptune went into Capricorn. All those big dreams crashed. Instead I found myself in a fundamentalist church choir full of paedophiles, trad schooling, unimaginative teachers, and I could only look at society with confusion as I neither wanted to belong nor saw a way out. Neptune in Aquarius I decided to follow the shaman’s way and quit my world. I prepared for it a good year or so ahead and… Read more »

Got picked on a ton in school, mainly by females, because I was smart, foreign, and had a “weird name” (not really!). Neptune in Aqua was all about religious exploration and travel. I was Pagan, Wiccan, Muslim, Buddhist, Episcopalian, Agnostic, finished University, moved away from my parents, did Peace Corps in Morocco for two years, was vegan for 4 yrs., learned French and Spanish, renewed my… Read more »
