Neptune in Pisces

Below is Adrian Duncan’s latest article, a predictive piece on Neptune in Pisces:

It’s been a long time. Neptune was discovered on September 23, 1846 and as it takes 165 years to go around the Sun, it is only recently that it has returned to its discovery position, which was 26 degrees Aquarius. One year after its discovery Neptune entered the sign it was later to have rulership over… Pisces. We have just experienced a Neptune birthday, and on April 4, 2011 this enormous planet will enter Pisces once again.

This is going to be quite an event. The discovery of Neptune coincided with worldwide social upheaval, which was mostly peaceful. In 1848 the Communist Manifesto was published, which was a response to the inhuman conditions in expanding cities where new factories were sprouting as a result of steam power and industrialization. This was the period when Charles Dickens wrote his novels of social realism, and social democratic demonstrations shook the capitals of Europe. This was also a time when painters like Renoir, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Cezanne and Monet made their impressionist paintings, expanding the world of fantasy and imagination. On the scientific front Darwin’s theory of evolution completely undermined Christian tradition. The first photographs were taken, ultimately leading to the coming world of the movies. Anesthetics were used for the first time in hospitals. Opium became a socially acceptable drug. The accepted reality of the day was undermined and new spiritual, emotional and political realities took form.

Here in 2010 we can now document the movement of Neptune through each of the twelve signs, and await a new spiral of Neptunian evolution. The function of Neptune is to expand our experience of so-called reality by introducing new dimensions of consciousness (more…)

Well... hard to imagine it can get worse than the present... the trends aren't good, so Neptune in Pisces , i thought, would give a bit of a softer touch to Pluto in Capricorn... By reading this it seems I am wrong... This post did not make my day... I had to find something else to make day!

I loved this sentence "We all relocated to cyberspace and people dematerialized to reappear as ghostly presences on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and the rest."

What an image for a world filled with so damn many images they've all lost meaning. But the description/image in words still holds valuable weight for me.

I really enjoyed this article but I have to point out that the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists were working after Neptune had finished transiting Pisces. Neptune was already well into Aries (around 20°) when Monet's Impression, Sunrise was exhibited in 1871. Impressionists were pioneering (Aries) a new way of seeing (Neptune).

I'd thought that about the Impressionists as well but hey, it wasn't my article! I like your blog, I'll link it to mine.
