On December 3rd, the mystical planet Neptune goes direct in its home sign of Pisces after several months in retrograde motion. The retrograde period of Neptune in Pisces knocked us off our little illusionary clouds and forced us to face reality. Now that Neptune is moving direct, we are deep into the mist of the illusionary fog and the mysterious nature of Neptune and Pisces energy. The reality checks offered through the retrograde Neptune provide insight into how we can use Neptune/Pisces energy in an effective way that moves us beyond living in illusions and delusions to harness mysticism and spirituality for practical use.
Neptune Retrograde Gives a Dose of Reality
Before we jump into the forward movement of Neptune in Pisces, it is important to consider the insight gained from the retrograde period of Neptune in its home sign of Pisces. Neptune retrograde reverses the traditional experience of Pisces energy. This means that instead of choosing to escape reality, we were forced to actually deal with it! Depending on your personality, the Neptune retrograde in Pisces transit was either a welcome dose of reality or a harsh slap but necessary slap in the face where escapism was not allowed.Read More »
Now that Neptune is moving forward once again, there could be a tendency to slip back into the mist of intangible and nebulous. Here come the old escapist patterns and deluded ways if we are not careful. In its highest state, Neptune in Pisces direct reveals ways to use spiritual energy to gain deeper insights that can be applied practically.
In the end, it is our choice how we choose to use Neptune in Pisces energy. We can choose to sink into the depths of disillusion or use the mystical energy to lead us to greater spiritual understanding.
Applying Reality To Mysticism
With Neptune moving direct in Pisces, we have the opportunity to apply reality to mysticism. While this may seem far-fetched, it’s not. It is possible to ground the spiritual in the physical. After all, we do this every day if we are to believe that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience.
One of the unfortunate characteristics of Neptune in Pisces is escapism. Escapism can come in the form of choosing to not see things as they are to avoid the harshness of reality to using consciousness-altering substances such as drugs and alcohol to numb oneself or zone out. This is not the best way to use Neptune/Pisces energy. At its best, Neptune/Pisces uses the mystical and unseen to elevate the spirit and physical experience.
Some ways to practically use the Neptune/Pisces energy of the mystical and spiritual principles in the physical include meditation, yoga, or hypnosis. These are all Neptune/Pisces-related practices that can be used in a constructive manner to help elevate the soul while simultaneously benefiting us in the physical. Remember, Pisces has one foot in the spiritual and one foot on earth. The spiritual is applied to the physical experience when this energy is used consciously and effectively.
The Dreamworld Revealed
The forward movement of Neptune in Pisces also amps up the dream experience. While Neptune moved retrograde, there could have been disturbances related to the dreamscapes. It is possible that dreams don’t make sense or aren’t as abundant when compared to a direct Neptune in Pisces transit.
Now that Neptune is moving forward, we can actively tap into the subconscious nature of the dream state to learn more about ourselves consciously. It is believed that the dream state shows us what we are dealing with subconsciously. Dreams have a way of expressing unresolved issues that we tend to ignore and/or depress consciously. With this understanding, we can use the dream state to explore unresolved issues and even program ourselves to improve our lives consciously.
With Neptune direct in Pisces, this is an excellent time to thoroughly review our dream states. Keeping a dream journal or recording dream experiences upon waking allows us to use our dreams to address the subconscious issues that show up subtly in everyday actions. To maximize the dream experience, it is important to prepare the sleep environment by increasing darkness which will increase the production of melatonin that allows the body to assess deeper states of sleep.
All Is Not What It Seems
While Neptune retrograde thrusts us into the reality of our circumstances, the return to direct Neptune movement is a reminder that everything is not as it appears to be. The undertow is back. Deception is rearing its ugly head, and even what appears to be facts cannot be trusted. Neptune in Pisces has us questioning the realities of everything that we experience. Illusions and delusions are high, so don’t believe everything you hear and/or see.
Due to the nebulous nature of Neptune/Pisces, the ability to “read” energy is important. Why words and actions can be deceiving, ENERGY NEVER LIES. Tapping into and trusting the intuitive faculty is advised, as the emotional realm picks up on the unseen and gives a heads-up when something is amiss. While Pisces opposite sign Virgo can rely on the details and facts, Pisces/Neptune is advised to tap into the energies and frequencies for the best results.
Reconciling The Fantasy With Reality
For some people, Neptune’s direct movement offers an interesting reconciliation of fantasy with reality. Doing this can be complex if we are in touch with reality. This can play out in several ways from people wanting to live in their own dream worlds to others deciding to make their realities into the dream life they desire. Neptune in Pisces in forward motion brings us back to settling our visions and dreams with the stark reality. This is important as Neptune direct in Pisces could lead us into the trap of running from our reality simply because it doesn’t add up to the dream world that we desire. It’s an illusion loop that is hard to escape without effort.
Instead of choosing the illusion, we can use the energy of Neptune in Pisces direct to make the physical reality the dream that we desire. Instead of having to sleep to experience the life of our dreams, we can use this experience to create our dream life in this physical reality. By using Neptune in Pisces energy direct in this manner the desire to escape is diminished because we are using our lived experience to actually live out the life that we desire.
Ultimately, Neptune direct in Pisces brings us back to the mystical, dreamy waters of the unseen and intangible after several months of cold hard reality. If we can make the effort to reconcile fantasy and mysticism with our reality, it is possible to live the life of our dreams all the while staying in touch and grounded in the physical.
