Neptune, Nessus and Chiron in Pisces
Nessus, Chiron and Neptune have been traveling the Zodiac together for the better part of the last ten years. Neptune and Chiron have been together in Pisces since February of 2011. Nessus first entered Pisces in April of 2014 and remained there until it retrograded into Aquarius in August.
Nessus’s initial foray into Pisces coincided with several of the most difficult months, psychologically and spiritually, in recent memory.http://on.fb.me/1K34rB5 Social, political and economic conditions showed improvement, but our personal lives came under great pressure.
In February 2015, Nessus will complete its transition into Pisces, joining Neptune and Chiron for the full transit. They will all remain together in Pisces until 2018 when Chiron enters Aries. The force of this grouping will be accentuated by squares from Saturn.
We are dealing here with a rare and unusually intense dose of difficult and unfamiliar energy. In a sense, we are being blind-sided.
To the best of my knowledge, these three bodies have not been together in Pisces since at least 650 A.D., probably a lot longer, and more than a thousand years before any of these bodies were discovered. ( 650 A.D. is the earliest date for which data on Chiron are available.) It will not happen again until about 2502 and for only a comparatively brief stretch. Saturn will be in Cancer.
Indeed, it is rare to find these bodies together in a single sign at all, especially with a difficult aspect from Saturn. In all those centuries between 650 A.D. and now, Neptune, Nessus and Pisces were together in the same sign once, in Sagittarius, in 665 A.D. Saturn was in Capricorn.
On the macro level, this triple transit of Pisces could bring a significantly higher than normal incidence of natural and man-made disasters, including instances of violence and hardship. The energies will all but certainly manifest negatively on the individual level.
However, on both the collective and individual levels we are likely to benefit somewhat from the immunity conferred on us by Nessus’s temporary stay in Pisces last summer. Many of us got to grips with the energies of Neptune, Nessus and Chiron in Pisces then. By all accounts, it was rough. Hopefully, some of those lessons stuck. A Time of Psychological and Spiritual Crisis
Chiron wields the power to forcibly break down our ego’s resistance to psychological, spiritual and moral growth. Chiron often precipitates spiritual crises.
On the individual level, Chiron often works through emotional or physical injuries, which are often, but not always, karmic in nature. Chiron will cause sudden, surprising accidents that bring with them sudden, surprising realizations, or expansions of mental and emotional boundaries. On the macro-level, Chiron can work through natural and man-made disasters.
Working together, Chiron and Neptune will expose hidden injuries and incomplete healing. Neptune dissolves the veils of unconsciousness that hide unhealed injuries and unresolved issues. This energy will almost certainly manifest at crisis levels in some cases.
Resistance Isn’t Futile
Nessus governs our ability to resist negative, destructive emotions – our own or those of others. It governs, for example, our ability resist the desire for payback, or revenge, individually or as part of a group. Nessus also governs our ability to resist pressure to do wrong or to remain silent while others do wrong. Nessus is about retaining our moral independence. I strongly suspect that bad Nessus energies play a role in discrimination and the persecution of minorities.
On the individual level, Nessus works by translating guilt we incur by compromising our moral principles into chronic physical or psychosomatic illness.Nessus, builds strength of character over time. It teaches us to maintain a positive, patient, compassionate attitude toward ourselves and others – to do and say the right thing – despite our own discomfort. Long term.On the macro-level, Nessus will teach us to resist war hysteria, for example, as well as racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination. I am not sure how Nessus achieves its effects on the macro-level. It probably isn’t pleasant.Neptune and Nessus in combination will penetrate and dissolve the veils that conceal moral weakness and ‘motivate’ us to overcome those weaknesses on both an individual and a collective level.Neptune, Nessus and Chiron and Saturn to BootNone of these bodies will conjoin the others while they are all in Pisces (good news!). However, their difficult influence will be intensified by Saturn’s broad square to Pisces from Sagittarius. The Saturn square will be exact on the dates below (UT is used throughout): ~ Saturn in Sagittarius Squares Nessus in Pisces: May 2, 2015 and Sept. 26, 2015.
~ Saturn in Sagittarius Squares Neptune in Pisces: Nov. 26, 2015, Jun. 18, 2016 and Sept. 10, 2016.
~ Saturn in Sagittarius Squares Chiron in Pisces: Dec. 28, 2016, Apr. 30, 2017 and Nov. 2, 2017.
Saturn leaves Sagittarius for the full transit of Capricorn in December 2017. The troublesome trio will remain behind together in Pisces until 2018 when Chiron enters Aries.
Nothing Is Hidden That Will Not Be Released
Many of the negative patterns in our lives and in world events are the result of negative patterns imbedded and preserved in our individual ego or in our collective unconscious, or both. As long as those patterns remain essentially unchanged in our unconscious, social, political and economic reform can only go so far. Our ego, or the mass mind, will block reform and progress, trying to keep its embarrassing secrets hidden, its pain buried and its illusory comfort and imaginary security assured.
Neptune, Nessus and Chiron in Pisces, with an assist from Saturn in Sagittarius, will help us overcome and overpower the ego’s resistance to the removal of these defective patterns. In that way, these planets will dramatically increase the scope and pace of social, economic and political reform.
Not Every Bad Thing is the Result of Bad Personal Karma
I want to avoid the implication that all negative experiences triggered by these transits are the result of personal bad karma. The aspects I discussed above should not be understood in terms of “punishment,” “judgment” or “retribution.”
Even the very wise have difficulty understanding what is the result of karma and what is the result of random, impersonal and unavoidable circumstance. Often they are the result of sacrifices made in the interests of spiritual evolutionary progress. The Broader, Positive Astrological Context
We need to be mindful, too, that, despite the releases triggered by this influence, we will be experiencing the power of the positive synchronicity of Saturn’s Sagittarius transit in our lives.http://on.fb.me/1K34CMS
While we are enduring what might turn into a marathon release of psychological and spiritual negativity, we will probably not have to worry also about global economic and political collapse.
