There’s something magical about the blue planet of the universe when it’s in the sign of Pisces.
Neptune travels through all 12 zodiac signs over the course of 165 years. Right now, it’s in the sign of Pisces where it rules and it will remain there until 2025.
Since June 2019, Neptune has been retrograde. Like other planets, retrograde season happens for a specific period of time, and then it goes back to being direct either in or out of the sign it started in.
Neptune first entered the sign of Pisces in 2011. So, that means everyone born between 2011 until it enters Aries in 2026 will have their Neptune in the sign of Pisces!
Neptune will go retrograde during the summertime each year. Since it is such a slow moving planet it will not re-enter Aquarius or go into Aries and then re-enter Pisces.
All the energy remains centered on the elements associated with the Fish of the zodiac.
