Date: June 16th - November 22nd
Neptune retrograde in Pisces will bring about a sense of secrecy and deep introspection. Spirituality, all that is hidden, karmic debt, sorrow and self undoing, large institutions are the highlight of this transit. Going within in order to gain a deeper insight into one’s psyche and life purpose, dreams, past life regression, meditation, yoga, tai-chi, all these type of modalities are favorable during this cycle.
Creativity is also another aspect of Neptune in Pisces. This is the time to create, trusting instincts to develop something that is visually stunning. Dance, photography, film, video, art, graphics and design of any type all come under this heading. Because of the hidden side of Neptune in Pisces (Neptune is the ruler of Pisces), it will be obvious (maybe, maybe not) that there are secrets that need to be revealed, but won’t come to the forefront until the cycle is nearly over in November when Neptune moves forward. However, there will be evidence of the “veil” being lifted as early as end of September/October when the undermining influence of Pluto retrograde goes into forward motion.
As mentioned before, retrogrades are a time to reflect, build, plan, research and discuss but not for action otherwise the outcome will be different from expected and not in a good way. Neptune in Pisces suggests it is wise to learn from past mistakes that brought sorrow and self-undoing, trying hard to fix them and not repeat.
