If you have Pisces in your first house, first impressions are going to have a deep and lasting effect on you when Neptune is transiting here. The karma is going to find its way back to you through your birth, your early childhood, your physical body and the psyche. This is a great time for these people to get in touch with the psychic part of them. They can serve emotionally by getting away from their own feelings, and tapping into their psychic ability to help others.
If we’re keeping in mind that Neptune is coming back as karma, and it’s in the first house, so there’s got to be a willingness to adapt to the idea of getting out of your own emotions and trying to be some kind of psychic vehicle for others as this particular time.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Second House
With Pisces in the second, I think you’re karma is going to find its way back to you through money, material possessions and all issues regarding self-worth. Keeping your financial affairs in order is going to be difficult for you right now because you’re being asked to address what is your value, what do you find worthwhile about yourself. Your self worth is going to be in some way, based on your faith and compassion, and your imagination and psychic ability are going to have to come in to this to give you a clear idea of what your self worth, and be able to address that.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Third House
If you have Pisces on the third, your karma is going to find its way back to you through your early life, your siblings, and your early education. You might start seeing classmates and neighborhood friends popping up. It’s going to bring back things that created your learning network, possibly from a last lifetime. And things that shaped your ideas and your thoughts, that made you feel like you were connected, made you feel like part of the community.
You might be prone to periods of mental confusion around this time, maybe even mental laziness, or you might feel like you need to secretly communicate when Neptune is in the third house. I believe you’re being asked to address language, how you communicate with people...how effective is that now. And if you were verbally abused or verbally denied or educationally deprived in your last lifetime, you’re going to have to deal with that now.
How smart are you? And don’t be comparing yourself to brothers and sisters when Neptune is in the third house. They will be issues at this particular time, but it’s not about that. It’s about your own immediate environment, what is your network, you’re being asked, I think, to define your network. What does your intellectual neighborhood really look like?Neptune Pisces Transiting the Fourth House
With Neptune Pisces coming into your fourth, your home life may start to get a little more spiritual and there can be karmic issues, especially with Mom. There’s the possibility of feeling like you’re abandoned or orphaned and in a past life maybe you were, and these issues are coming back for you to address and deal with them. You also may experience the worry over or loss of a parent. Or worry about losing a parent.
In any event, your relationship with a parent is going to change for the best or the worst. The karma with this parent is going to be brought forward, and you’re going to have to deal with it. And we all have issues with our moms and our dads -- that’s why we brought them into our life. But if you haven’t been addressing them up until now, you will be forced to AND your own role as a mother or a parent.Neptune Pisces Transiting your Fifth House
If you have Pisces on the fifth, I think your karma is going to find its way back to you through your romances, and your creative self-expression. Your children and any time you try to create or be creative. And at this particular time, you have to be very careful not to be deceived or disillusioned in your romantic involvements or especially with any kind of risk taking.
You’re being asked at this part time to trust in your creative talents and not expect other people to take them to the end for you. I think you’re going to be forced to deal with your creative issues, whether they’re your own children or your own creative talents, not relying on anyone else to validate that in your life.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Sixth House
If it's coming through the sixth, I think it’s going to be all about health. And any of the routines or exercises that make up your daily life. The way you serve or others serve you on a daily basis. This is the perfect time, if your eyes are wide open, to find the perfect doctor for you. And if your eyes aren’t wide open, it’s the perfect time to find the doctor that is a fraud. Your eyes have got to be wide open and you’ve got to be cautious in this area of life.
If you’re being diagnosed for anything definitely get two opinions. Look at every single possible option. I think you’re being asked to deal with the fears you have about your health and about your physical competence in this lifetime. It’s always going to come back to that. Your work as it relates to your physical techniques, and your physical competence. What you’re physically capable of doing. But I believe with some good aspects to Neptune as its traveling, this is a good time to find the perfect solution to perhaps a mysterious ailment that has been affecting you.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Seventh House
If you have Pisces on the seventh, first of all, are your partners, clients and spouses in this lifetime, right from the beginning, because they’re either blessed or cursed. This is always where your karma is going to come through. Your one-on-one relationships.
When Neptune is traveling through in this life, even more so. In the past, you might’ve denied your partners flaws and shortcomings and now you’re going to have to deal with these partners that perhaps you’ve either enabled, or you have not seen for who they were. So if you have Pisces on the 7th, and you’re wondering, OK, why am I pulling all these people into my life, it’s because these are the people that you didn’t clearly address and acknowledge, either in your last life or earlier in this one. These are the people that you did look at with rose-colored glasses and now you’re being asked to look at them in a realistic way. And decide if you want them in your life.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Eighth House
Pisces on the eighth, your karma is going to find its way back through your collective worth, and it’s always about trust and sharing, and it’ll always seem fated. If you have Pisces here, you were both a skilled manipulator in the handling of life and death resources. And things that didn’t belong to you, which is why your own legacies and financial affairs can kind of be deceptive or creatively inspired and miraculous.
Your past is going to come back here, so depending on what you were in the past, is what going to come back in. Either miraculous windfalls or people are going to be trying to take money away from you. And any house Neptune is traveling through, just know you’re meeting your own karma and deal with it on that level of 'OK, I get the reality of it and I’m going to fix it.' The neat part about Neptune is we’re being asked to look at it realistically and fix it. And that’s when our miracles happen. When we do overcome that.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Ninth House
If you have Pisces on the ninth, your spiritual insights to begin with often provide miraculous solutions that feel like divine intervention most of the time. And that’s because your karma has a tendency to find its way back to you through your faith and your principles. That’s because in the past, you inspired others to move beyond their intellectual and spiritual boundaries. And that's why with Neptune coming through there now, you’ll experience either great disillusionment or great inspiration to travel to a foreign country, unfamiliar territory or to go meet new people or to start your own radio show.
When Neptune is traveling through here, you’re destined to take another look at what your boundaries are in this lifetime based on what you helped other people make their boundaries. Did you push the envelop for them or did you limit them? And this is the time for you to realistically ask what your boundaries are, and where you can push the outside of the envelope. And grow, because that’s what the 9th house is all about...it’s about growing.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Tenth House
If you have Pisces on the tenth, there’ll always be some kind of creative inspiration, or even secrecy, or behind the scenes kind of work connected to your profession, as your karma comes back to you in this life through your job, your reputation and your career. In your last lifetime, you were abandoned, orphaned or neglected by your father or authority figures and for that reason, you’re now prone to deep issues of parental loss and disappointment in this one. And it’s why you might be faced with these issues when Neptune is creeping through there.
It’s also why you might have great difficulty relating to authority figures and getting the proper recognition you deserve when Neptune is traveling through the tenth house. But again,the flipside of Neptune, is this is also a great time to get someone behind the scenes to pay attention to you that you haven’t noticed. So if you’re working your hardest your good fortune can really manifest when Neptune is going through this house, especially if you’re doing anything with underprivileged or the less fortunate in your work.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Eleventh House
Pisces on the eleventh, tells me your karma in this lifetime is destined to find its way back through your talented friends, your gifted associates and you really very visionary colleagues. And that’s why your companions in this life can feel like they’re very inspirational and even clairvoyant, or they can be deceptive and manipulative.
When nep is traveling through here, these people people are going to come to your attention. It’s also why you might find your way into spiritual clubs or secret meetings during Neptune's travel through the 11th. Neptune is trying to get you back in touch with those friends who were visionary. But again, because those are the visionary friends, you might be coming back to those that tried to deceive you or take your crystals and do something harmful with them.
So you’ve got to be very careful and the really neat thing about Neptune is that Neptune influence in that house is always going to feel very serendipitous. It’s always going to feel nostalgic when these people come back, and they’re always going to come back through these houses. And you're going to say, 'Oh my God, where have you been for 2,000 years?' That’s how your soul is going to feel. The problem is if you embrace them very quickly, you’re going to know why, where they’ve been and why you haven’t seen them for 2,000 years real quick. You just have to be very cautious about being happy that these people are coming back to you, because they’re going to be coming back to you for a reason, in every house. Because they were your karma. And right now, you can change that. If they’re positive and good karma is coming back, you can embrace it, and if it was negative, you can see them realistically for what it was and cut the ties.Neptune Pisces Transiting the Twelfth
Pisces on the twelfth, my favorite house, your karma will find its way back to you through nothing else but emotional service to others….and helping the less fortunate which was a calling in a last lifetime. But some kind of painful loss led you to not be able to handle the harsh realities of life all that well and caused you to use either faith or your imagination, or any kind of other unconscious realm…as an escape. And you kind of isolated yourself.
You emotionally isolated yourself rather than getting out there and doing the work you were supposed to. Which is why you can now unconsciously avoid your mission to rescue others by becoming the victim or drop out yourself.
Now when Pisces is traveling through this house, you’re not going to be allowed to do that. You’re not going to be allowed to go to those secluded places near the water, unless it’s a psychological ward where people need your help. Because these people, these real victims of the world, you’re not a victim of the world ……and these victims of the world are looking for you and they’re going to find you now, so you can really step up to the plate, and choose how you want to serve them. Or you can end up being their doormat.
And that’s the beauty of pisces on the 12th because you have a higher calling in life. For the next 13 years, you’re going to feel like every single whacko and loser and emotionally deprived person is finding you. This is only because you’re not out there doing the job you’re supposed to be. And in some way, you’re supposed to be helping them, even if it’s just serving as a big bro or big sis or reading to the blind every Thursday night, in the library…you’re supposed to be out there, with the real victims of the world. Not the pseudo victims of the world. Then when you can’t find those, not playing that role yourself.
