Sun went into Pisces late last night. It is at 0' Pisces applying to a conjunction with Pisces' ruler Neptune at 9' Pisces. This next couple weeks will be a particularly beneficial time to participate in dream work, inducing visions, working with entheogens, and exploring altered states of consciousness. It could also manifest as a time of heightened emotionality and sensitivity in those that suffer from depression or anxiety and extra care has to be taken to creatively channel these energies if you or someone you love struggles with addiction.
We might find ourselves walking around in what seems like a "waking dream".
Mercury and Venus are in intellectual Aquarius right now, breathing some air in and Jupiter and the north nodes extended stay in Virgo is still grounding and urging us to get organized and increase our efficiency and take care of ourselves.
Chores as self-care.
Another way to constructively channel Pisces/Neptune energy is to volunteer or give of yourself in some way...especially with animals.
Pisces is compassionate and meditative and humble and devoted.
Be devoted to something.
The veil is thin when Neptune and Pisces are involved I think..
From the book Acid Test by Tom Schroder, when discussing alternative paths to inducing altered states:
"Grof discovered that a wide range of cultures, including early Christians, had developed technique of breathing designed to alter consciousness. "The original form of baptism practiced by the Essenes involved forced submersion of the initiate under water for an extended period of time," he wrote. "This resulted in a powerful experience of death and rebirth. In some other groups, the neophytes were half-choked by smoke, by strangulation, or by compression of the carotid arteries."
Well known people with their Sun at 0 degrees Pisces include: Anais Nin, Kurt Cobain, Nina Simone, Sonny Bono, and Ted Kennedy.
