We are in a massive surge of Pisces these days, with both Mars-Chiron-Sun-Mercury and Uranus in the sign of the fish moving in opposite directions, being a perfect master in creating chaos. The Fish is related to natural resources, as oil. The situation in Libya and the bombing of a oil installation in Iraq the last couple of days is throwing the world marked , already quite flaky, into a new situation of insecurity.
Clearly this is just a little teaser for the upcoming transit of Neptune into Pisces starting april of this year, marking a transition that will last until 2025, when both Pluto and Neptune will cross into Aquarius and Aries. The collective issues we will face in these years between now and then will be about the natural resources of the world , while we are starting to really feel the pressure of the 7 billion people walking the surface. Pisces is Nature. Nature needs to be a part of our consciousness. We need to take better care of it, this we have known for years, however, with Neptune ingress into Pisces, nature will shout it’s message loud and clear. Solidarity will no longer be optinal. Many people will go into futility and feel that it is all hopeless , feeling disempowered and disillusioned.
Now, the good news is that Uranus will at the same time be in Aries, at least for the first seven years of this transit, stirring the independent minds around the globe. Difficult times creates heros. Necessity dictates creation. Maybe we will find a new solution to the energy problem of the world, something that would be unthinkable even today. The best thing would be that the economical system would go through a real revolution and with the upcoming squares of Pluto in Capricorn to Uranus in Aries in the period 2011-2015 stirring changes in corporate structure and innovation, necessity might just dictate those changes. More corruption will be exposed.
Today, the world is more connected than ever before, with internet and media. We are globalizing, and even more so with Neptune into Pisces, connecting all to all. Or as Neale Donald Walsh has put it (Sun Neptune dude btw); “As the new spirituality begins to become the pervasive spirituality of the planet, we’ll find that we have abandoned our philosophy of contradictions in which we say we’re all one but continue to try to win.”
Yes, I guess it will be more pressing to share than to hoard while pretending to be spiritual. Living according to spiritual principles, connecting with earth and sky, opens up the mind and heals the instinct, making us realize that abundant living is not a mental concept but a real possibility, if we only understand what real abundance is.
