Neptune in Pisces: Dreamy, Empathetic, and Metaphysical
Feb 3, 2012 – Mar 30, 2025
By Tarot.com Staff
Neptune is a powerful provider of perspective, depth, and understanding. This icy giant looms above us with an all-encompassing air of unity and peace, reminding us that we are all interconnected across time and space. Neptune dissolves the boundaries between us, and between fantasy and reality.
Pisces is where we weave together our emotional states with our connections to others. This blend creates deep spaces of empathy as we consider one another in a sensitive and open way, often leading to spiritual ideas that can help us heal and grow. While Neptune moves through the sacred waters of Pisces, its home sign, its presence becomes a source of limitless compassion.
When Neptune is in Pisces
Neptune in Pisces grants us a unique form of sight. As the Piscean focus on emotion and spirit merges with Neptune’s pull to unify all things, a clarity emerges from the fog, shedding light on our own contradictions. We can suddenly see clearly the futility of caring about petty differences. The value of coming together shines like gold, and the path to wholeness is illuminated.
This transit calls us to look at what we each can contribute toward our collective progress and healing. We all have gifts, ideas, and dreams for how things could be. Neptune in Pisces is an invitation to explore our emotional intelligence for our own unique offerings.
This is the perfect time to take a course in a spiritual path that calls to us, or to create an altar space at home and connect with that which feels most sacred. The energy of Neptune in Pisces nudges us to consider how to then share these ideas with the world, and reminds us that its presence will support us in this process.
Neptune Retrograde in Pisces
When Neptune retrogrades through emotional Pisces, our feelings of connection with everything around us take a dip into our personal world. We feel a nourishing depth of empathy for ourselves. As we peer into the deepest and darkest corners of ourselves, we can feel a new sense of acceptance for the wholeness of our beings.
Neptune Retrograde, in general, shines a light inward, but its backward float through Pisces stirs our souls like none other. Here we begin the foundational work of internal relationship building. We can see our darkest fears, our holiest hopes, our most mundane realities, and learn to embrace them all as essential parts of ourselves. Once we feel this unity within, we no longer need to look outside for it. It becomes a permanent part of the nature of our experience, and suddenly we are whole.
Some additional effort is advised to ground this experience in tangible reality, however. Neptune Retrograde in Pisces is heady and could remain a nebulous concept once Neptune turns direct. Taking time to create art, write, or otherwise share our experiences helps us ground what we have learned and carry it forward.
If you were born with Neptune in Pisces
Natal Neptune in Pisces grants you an uncanny ability to tap into the productive forces of dreams and imagination. You easily dance along the border between imagination and reality and your capacity for active manifestation is immense. You may dream about a certain person, then get a call from them later that day. Or you may imagine how delicious donuts would be on the way to work in the morning, only to get to the office and find someone brought in a dozen.
As you surely know, this capacity is true for both positive and negative imaginings. Take care to not get lost in ongoing worrying, lest you manifest that which you least desire. Hone your ability to dream up what you want, and don’t stop dreaming til it’s yours.
While you may also find it all too easy to drift off into dreamland, or maybe even all too hard to find your way back, take courage to know this dreamland is exactly where your power lies. Explore these spaces, dig into the metaphysical, immerse yourself in your visions for a better world. Daydreaming is your superpower.
