Neptune Returns Home to Pisces
An Overview of Neptune's Previous Transits Through Pisces and What to Expect With Neptune in Pisces, 2011-2025

by Kaye Shinker

Neptune rules Pisces and is very happy to once again return to his kingdom.  He rules with his trident in one hand and the reigns of his chariot in the other.  He will poke individuals insisting that they identify and share their talents. He is a compassionate ruler most of the time, however he has a violent temper.  Neptune is restless and anxious to get things done.  He breaks through conventional rules and slides over boundaries.  He will not be told what to do.

Neptune enters Pisces April 4, 2011, stays for a few months, turns retrograde on June 2, 2011 and returns to Aquarius August 11, 2011.  Neptune then goes direct on November 9, 2011 at 28° Aquarius and returns to Pisces February 4, 2012.  He will remain in Pisces until April 1, 2025.

Neptune was discovered according to Aeago's apt phrase "with the point of a pen" September 23, 1846 at 28° degrees Aquarius.  The mathematical prediction of Urbain Le Verrier was confirmed at the Berlin Observatory by Johann Galle using Le Verrier's calculations.  It was a dramatic confirmation of Newton's law of gravitation and a sensational moment in 19th Century science.  The history of Neptune's discovery is fascinating.  (Read Wikipedia's history of Neptune at

Neptune spends 14 years in each sign of the zodiac.  The planet's synodic cycle is 165 years.  NASA's photograph from space reveals his color as aquamarine blue.  Neptune has 13 Moons, a very faint ring system, a great dark spot and a striped pattern of clouds.

Neptune's Myth
Neptune is the god of the seas and is analogous to the Greek god Poseidon.  He was a titan and the brother of Jupiter and Pluto.  When Jupiter, Pluto and Neptune defeated their father Saturn they divided the world into three parts.  Jupiter took the sky, Neptune the sea, and Pluto the underworld.  Neptune’s reputation for having a violent temper was believed to be the cause of earthquakes, and violent storms.

In ancient times very little was written about the god Neptune.  The Roman holiday to honor Neptune was in late July at the end of their harvest season.  City folks celebrated the holiday with gatherings in the countryside near rivers and lakes.

According to one Greek myth, Aphrodite and her son transformed themselves into fish to escape the monster Typhon.  To make sure they did not lose each other they tied a cord onto their tails.  The myth illustrates Pisces unique ability to plan for future difficulties and minimize the chances of the problem becoming a bigger challenge.

Pisces is imaginative, intuitive and compassionate.  Pisces is artistic and easily adjusts to new circumstances and new thinking.  It is a complex sign that breaks down material boundaries.  It thrives on creative endeavors and finds unique solutions to difficult problems.

In Financial Astrology, Pisces represents shipping, trade and travel.  It can not work according to conventional office schedules.

Pisces is an artist, a writer, and a musician.  He is tuned into another part of the universe that is concealed and totally unknown until he allows it to materialize in the form of wondrous new artistic forms.

Neptune rules creativity, design and public institutions.  He rules music, dance, and films.  He rules large animals such as cattle, horses, camels, and deer.  He governs the oceans, fish, and ships.  Neptune governs storms, chaos, confusion and deception.  He is idealistic, compassionate, and is adept at revealing scandals.

Neptune's Previous Transits through Pisces
Neptune's transit of Pisces has brought everyone thousands of hours of fascinating entertainment.  Novels, ballads, poetry, and music are filled with the extraordinary adventures of humans during these time periods.

Boundaries are blurred as Neptune moves forward through his sign.  He finds plenty of prospectors to provide him with an abundance of precious metals to barter for the things he needs.  Neptune encourages groups to organize and colonize vast areas of open lands.  This transit could include colonizing the Moon in search of rare earth metals as well as possible fuel for interstellar voyages.

A quick look at previous transits of Neptune through Pisces reveals that hard currency in the form of precious metals (silver, gold, platinum) flood the market as a result of the discovery of new sources or mines.  Creative innovations are required for the transfer of large amounts of bullion between buyers and sellers.  The receipts of deposit become another form of currency forcing changes in the valuation of previous reserve currencies.  New types of banking systems are created while traditional banks are forced to change. Many financial institutions do not survive.

Innovations in transportation and the dissemination of knowledge create a new class of workers as well as entrepreneurs.  Strong men and leaders emerge from nontraditional social stratums. The business of religion and higher education is forced into an new paradigm.

Here is a brief summary of each period in history when Neptune transited Pisces.  Each 14 year segment was a time for great stories, interesting leaders, and magnificent adventures.

It was a time of very fluid national borders and strong man rulers.  It was a time for adventure travel with large groups of people moving across vast territories.

Richard the Lionhearted was returning to England from Israel after his adventures on the 3rd Crusade.  He was captured and held for ransom. The people of Britain raised the ransom in about one year, an event that betrayed the true wealth of the Island Kingdom.

The Knights Templar developed the first full service banks in order to move vast sums of money to enable the European Crusader's efforts to reclaim Jerusalem and other adventures in the Near East.

The Crusaders captured and sacked Constantinople.  Saladin of Egypt however made a peace treaty with the Crusaders.  This treaty served to unite the Arab world.

In China, Genghis Kahn was elected Kahn of the Mongols and began the establishment of the Chinese empire.

This was the time of the Black Death in Europe and included several battles during the Hundred Years War. Depopulation left vast areas of agricultural land untilled and untitled.

The Ottoman empire expanded into Europe.

The Khans were replaced by the Ming dynasty in China.

Magellan sailed around the world.

Cortez invaded Mexico. He shipped the Aztec's gold to Europe.  An increased supply of gold destroyed the economy of Europe.

Henry the Eighth was king of England.  His break with the Catholic church returned monasteries and other pieces of church property to the public tax roles.

Martin Luther translated the Bible into German.

The Ottoman Empire was at its Zenith and ruled by Suleyman the Magnificent.

Copernicus published his popular theory on currency.

Johchimsthaler or ‘thaler’ was the name of a popular silver coin from Bohemia.  Its name was Anglicized to ‘dollar’.

Peter the Great expanded the Russian territory.

The Ottoman Empire was defeated by the Holy League.

This was the time of the Glorious Revolution in England where political power moved to the moneyed classes.

The Bank of England was chartered. Silver coins in England were replaced with a new issue of silver coins. There was a gold rush in Brazil and the Massachusetts Bay colony issued paper currency.

Political upheavals abounded in Europe.

Controversies in the United States led to the Civil War.

Uncle Tom's Cabin was published as was Darwin’s Theory of the Evolution of the Species.

Railroads crisscrossed Europe and the Americas.

Banks in the United States were forced to suspend payments; German and French banks failed because they had hedged their investments in the emerging USA.  The Greenback became legal tender in the United States.

Gold was discovered in California, Colorado, Pikes Peak, and Australia thus producing a huge supply of hard money.

What to Expect as Neptune Transits through Pisces
The transit of Neptune through Pisces (2011-2025) will promote innovation and imagination of those things related to Pisces.

When Neptune began its transit through Aquarius in February, 1998, an explosion of innovation happened in the world of electronics: huge TV’s, 3D movies, the Internet, the IPhone, the Kindle, cloud computing and all of the tiny inventions that make these instruments work.  The transit of Neptune will do the same to those things related to energy, pharma, water, shoes, music and dance as it travels through Pisces.*

Neptune Tidbit

Pollywogs are sailors who have never crossed the equator. A line crossing ceremony is still current in many navies and merchant fleets. When the ship crosses the equator subpoenas are issued to the pollywogs and they must appear before King Neptune and his court. The King's first assistant is Davy Jones and sometimes he includes "her highness Amphitrite". (Amphitrite is the goddess of the sea and wife of Poseidon)  The ceremony often ends with hazing and the Pollywogs receive a certificate proclaiming them "Shellbacks", or The Sons of Neptune.
