Neptune in Pisces Points to the Solution of the Uranus-Pluto Square

When slow-moving planets (or other slow-moving bodies for that matter, such as KBOs) enter a new sign, it takes awhile for them to get their footing and establish the core paradigm that will play out during the era they are transiting that sign. Between 0 and 5 degrees, the planet is still laying the ground work and "introduction" for the drama yet to unfold in later degrees and years of the transit. 

With a lot of astrological attention currently focused on the seven partile Uranus-Pluto squares over the next few years, along with Saturn and Pluto's mutual reception 
beginning in October (remember, Pluto is not a planet, but does rule Scorpio in modern astrology), Neptune's transit through its home sign of Pisces can disappear into the background and therefore be seriously overlooked. 

Big mistake. It's
 front-and-center by hiding in plain sight in the intense outer solar system drama currently unfolding. Neptune in Pisces is pointing to the core issue that needs to be addressed in order to RESOLVE the turmoil of its more malefic neighbors on either side. Namely:
“Imagine the problem is not physical. Imagine the problem has never been physical, that it is not biodiversity, it is not the ozone layer, it is not the greenhouse effect, the whales, the old-growth forest, the loss of jobs, the crack in the ghetto, the abortions, the tongue in the mouth, the disease stalking everywhere as love goes on unconcerned.

Imagine the problem is not some syndrome of our society that can be solved by commissions or laws or a redistribution of what we call wealth. Imagine that it goes deeper, right to the core of what we call our civilization and that no one outside of ourselves can effect real change, that our civilization, our government are sick and that we are mentally ill and spiritually dead — that all our issues are crises are symptoms of this deeper sickness.

The problem is that we cannot imagine a future where we possess less but are more.”

Or, another way to put Uranus square Pluto, Neptune in Pisces artistically/visually:

Transiting Neptune in Pisces is beginning its Orcus opposition in the U.S. Sibly chart (below) in the 3rd-9th house axis. This will ultimately form a grand cross with the U.S. natal Orcus-Uranus-Haumea T-square, which shows that the themes of Uranus-Pluto (economic exploitation, oppression, and plutocracy) aren't even new or recent, but INHERENT in the lifeblood of the country with roots in the days of slavery! In cadent houses, they swirl like a mist in the background until harsh transits blow an ill wind through the country's history. Or present and future.

So the outer solar system is going to be calling the (heavy) shots astrologically for a long time to come. (Talk about having to give up the illusion of having immense personal control in life!) Fear not, though, as oases will spring up in everyone's lives as the inner solar system planets fleetingly come to the rescue periodically with their transits. It's already starting to spark as a potential solution to the foreclosure situation that bypasses Wall Street entirely is gaining momentum.

More to come...
