Neptune in Pisces in History

THE HISTORY OF ENTRIES OF NEPTUNE IN PISCES
is in Pisces now (since April 4, 13:37 UT) and we are in the middle of a
revolutionary time. I wondered if this corresponded with earlier positions of
Neptune in Pisces, or in other words: what happened when Neptune entered Pisces in history?
article I am going back in time to Neptune in Pisces in702, 866, 1029, 1193,
1357, 1522, 1684 and 1848 to see
what to expect this time. Neptune will leave Pisces in 2025. In the meantime
transit Neptune will make aspects with your sunsing, Ascendant, MC and planets.
Often these transits will be confusing and confronting you with your ideals,
dreams and beliefs. This confrontation is resonating in the history of Neptune
in Pisces. It takes written history and civilizations to see in what way the
change of sign of Neptune, moving from Aquarius to Pisces, reflected real
events on the long term. The effect of the media (from singers/troubadours to
papers and Twitter) in those periods is evident. There were little or none of
such ways to spread news and gather people when you back in time. That is why I
stopped at 702. The 8 examples will show you that Neptune’s entrance in Pisces
influenced religions and ideologies in many ways, often accompanied by revolts.
Neptune in Pisces in 1848
Neptune entered Pisces in 1848 it was the Year of the Revolts and the Communist
Manifesto, the beginning of Communism. Writers were Friedrich Engels and Karl
Marx. All over Europe things changed in a dramatic way. Constitutions were
altered and this is what happened in 1848:
- France (February 24, abdication of
- Austria and Hungary (March 3 and
revolt in Vienna on March 12),
- Berlin (March 19),
- Stockholm (March 18 and 19, 30
persons died) and
- even in the still very rural
Netherlands there was a new constitution on November 3, 1848, against the
wishes of the King.
- Switzerland is also on the list
(Federal Constitution of November 1848). In 1846 the uprising in Galacia had
been suppressed, but in 1848 the authorities gave in, more and more.
Neptune in Pisces in 1684
there is 1684, the year of the Holy League. Members were Poland, the Holy Roman Empire,
Venice, Tuscany, Russia and Malta. They fought the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman
Empire had been beaten on 11/12 September 1683. This was followed by the Holy
League, . Members were Poland, the Holy Roman
Empire, Venice, Tuscany, Russia and Malta. They fought the Ottoman Empire and
wanted to drive them out of Europe. Quoting Wikipedia:
"Holy League of 1684 was
initiated by Pope Innocent XI (...)This alliance opposed the Ottoman Empire in
the Great Turkish War and lasted until the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699"
"Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, or
simply Holy Name of Mary is a feast day
in the Roman
Catholic Church celebrated on 12 September to honour the name of Mary the
mother of Jesus. It has been a universal Roman Rite feast since
1684, when Pope Innocent
XI included it in the General Roman
Calendar to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Vienna in 1683,
won by the Polish King Jan III, who had placed his troops under the protection of the
Blessed Virgin Mary. (PS On January 26, 1699 the Treaty (Peace) of
Karlowitz (Karlovci) was signed, with Neptune in 1 degree 4 minutes Aries)"
Neptune in Pisces in 1521
whistleblower Martin Luther was banned on January 3, 1521 (and his books were
burnt), 10 days before Neptune in Pisces. Then he started translating the Bible
from Latin. That was the beginning of Protestantism. And the religious conflict
started a lot of revolts in order to gain independence from Catholic Kings.
Also, in 1521 Belgrade was captured by the Ottoman Army.
Neptune in Pisces in 1357
the Paris Revolt ended feudal society. . In Paris there was a revolt lead by Etienne
Marcel.This revolt should be seen in the context of feudal society in crisis.
The economy of Europe changed (more centered on trades and cities than on land
Neptune in Pisces in 1193
the Aztek civilization (and their cruel religion) started and Saladin, leader
of the troops against the Crusaders died. He was respected by his enemies, too.
Neptune in Pisces in 1029
Romanus III invaded Syria and that was all. Was it of importance? In 866 the
Saracens were beated by Louis II and Norwegian Pagans fought their Christian
King in the years of Pope Nicholas. In those days Western Europe was beset by
Muslim and Norse incursions.
Neptune in Pisces in 702
the Armenians rebelled against the Muslim laws.
When sunsigns change, lifestyles
change. Pisces is not Aquarius: there is difference between those signs. Now
why is Neptune's transfer from Aquarius to the first degrees of Pisces
resonated by revolts, revolutions and changes in constitutions? I think
that part of the explanation is that Pisces is the sign of the 'media' and mediums, transporting messages that concern us all.
Mass media bring us the news and
influence our state of mind. Just before Neptune went to Pisces the media had
become more and more of influence. I read that after 1830 there was a sort of
an explosive growth of newspapers, suddenly available for the people. And 1848
was the year of the foundation of Associated Press. When Neptune changed sign, ideologies and beliefs and ideas
changed, starting with chaos and the news was distributed faster than ever in
Today, you see that the new media (Facebook,
Twitter) were used to gather the people...The media
were the vehicle for ideas today and then.
This completes my search for the events in the year of Neptune
entering Pisces. A lot of the events in those years are related to battles
between religions and ideologies. Perhaps history is all battle about
ideologies, but in some of those years the events started a new period in
convictions (like Protestantism and Communism). Other years show the continuing
rivalry between Christianity and Islam.
be that throughout history the move of Neptune from Aquarius to Pisces moved
ideologies and religions, often as a result of revolts, and that those
ideologies or ideas changed (Western) history. And that would be no surprising
conclusion in the light of the meaning of Neptune and Pisces in astrology.
Neptune is the symbol of ideology. Aquarius is the symbol of change. And
Pisces, in the end, spreads the concept. We now entered the first year of
Neptune in Pisces. In 2025 Neptune will be in Aries and we will know what the
impact of this period will have been for our concepts and for the world
religions and ideologies. Until then Neptune in Pisces is like a ship at
sea in the mist. We will have to wait for a clear sky to see where we are at.
