Neptune conjunct Sun

Transiting Neptune conjunct Sun can only happen once in a lifetime.

Neptune has been in Aquarius since 1998 and will be moving over the middle degrees in 2005. Aquarians born between February 2nd to February 6th will feel the effects most strongly this year. Anyone who has personal planets in fourteen to eighteen degrees of Aquarius (not to mention Leo, Scorpio, Taurus, Gemini and Libra) will feel the dissolving effects of the Neptunian pull this year.

If Neptune is already strongly tied into your birth chart with natal aspects to personal planets, this transit will not be as potentially disorienting as it would be for people who are not accustomed from birth to the Neptunian energy.

How can we summarize the likely effects of Neptune over your Sun? For those people who are keenly logical, rational, and focused squarely in the material world, this transit will likely help to precipitate a shake-up in your approach to life this year. Some outer circumstances in your life may change in such a way as to pull you into a more introspective, dreamy, glamorous, escapist, spiritual or artistic view of life.

Neptune tends to dissolve the overly-rational aspects in people's perspectives. In the unfortunate cases it can help precipitate a deceptive, delusional or psychotic state where a hold on reality is temporarily disabled. In the best cases it can lead to tremendous creativity or spiritual development; opening eyes to the beauty and joy around us every day.

Uranus in Pisces

BellagioUranus in Pisces is like lightning trying to pass through the deepest waters.

Uranus can be viewed as the speedy drill of an electrified mind (it's the higher octave of Mercury) and Neptune can represent the collective consciousness, dreams and beauty (as the higher octave of Venus). The two are not altogether compatible!

So what sort of predictions can we make about the seven year period (from 2003 to 2010) when Uranus (the ruler of Aquarius) and Neptune (the ruler of Pisces) trade homes and live in 'mutual reception'?

The best analysis I've seen so far is by Jeanne Mozier. In an article she published in the Mountain Astrologer in early 2003, she discusses the likely manifestations during this period of the "eruption of psyche".

She believes we can expect a 'dramatic increase in psychic sensitivity" and has some novel ideas about how that might play out. She sees a continued emphasis on technology (as signified by the previous transit of Uranus through Aquarius from 1996 to 2003) "at the same time that the mystical, spiritual essence of Pisces is intensified. Mystics with modems will be the Order of the day. will be a much consulted web address. Technology may be developed to pick up psychic impressions or to monitor dreams (or make them lucid). "

Mozier makes interesting predictions about the likely increased popularity of vegetarianism, pediatrists, telepathic connections, personal spiritual trainers, aura scanners, rehab spas and water companies.

She mentions tsunamis a couple of times in the article and notes that "water and all the places it is kept will face disruption and upheavel".
