Neptune Retrograde in Pisces:

Seeking the Divine Spark Within

In astrology, Neptune is one of the most mysterious of all of the planets. Simultaneously, Neptune gifts us with idealism, but also confusion. Romance, but also lies. Spirituality, but also doubt. Compassion, but also guilt. It’s often hard to figure out exactly what Neptune is doing, and how this curious planet affects our lives astrologically, but one thing does seem clear: when Neptune turns retrograde, a lot of the fog clears, and we can see more clearly.

What is Neptune Retrograde?

All planets have retrograde periods. During these periods, astrologers say the planet is in retrograde motion. This means that – as it would be seen from earth – the planet appears to be moving backwards across the heavens. This is merely an optical illusion, because planets do not move backwards. Think of it as being similar to when you overtake a moving vehicle. The other vehicle appears to fall backwards in your mirror, but in reality it is still moving forwards at speed. However, because astrology is a language of symbolism, the apparent backwards motion of a planet in retrograde motion is important and significant.

Neptune turns retrograde for between five and six months every year, so this is not an uncommon phenomenon – Neptune is retrograde for over 40% of the time. This means that over 40% of people were born during a Neptune retrograde period, which means they have what we call a natal Neptune retrograde.

Each year when Neptune turns retrograde, some people feel the effects more keenly than others, depending on the strength of Neptune in their natal chart, as well as what other planetary transits are activating their chart at the time. Neptune’s influence can be quite subtle in our horoscopes, so you may not always notice its effects unless its action in your chart in any given year is significant.

What is the Significance of Neptune Retrograde in Pisces?

Because Neptune is a highly spiritual planet, astrologically speaking, its retrograde period is a time when we can look within ourselves for evidence of spirituality or divinity, instead of seeking this externally. The confusion sometimes spread by Neptune’s energies tends to clear, and the result can be a wake-up call which may – or may not – be welcome at the time.

When Neptune turns retrograde, it’s easier for us to dislodge some of its more negative associations, such as guilt, so we can make a clearer analysis of our past traumas, our karma and our psychological weaknesses.

In astrology, Neptune’s retrograde period is also a time when dreams and psychic inputs are stronger in our lives, so it’s a good period to practice dream analysis, meditation, clairvoyance or telepathy. Because you will become more aware of your own divine nature during the retrograde period, it’s also a wonderful time to start a gratitude journal, or to focus on noticing and enjoying the interconnectedness of all things on earth.

Selflessness and compassion are also traits of the astrological Neptune. When Neptune turns retrograde, it’s easier for us to see where our kindness has been misplaced of where someone has been taking advantage of us. Rather than withdrawing the kindness we have shown, however, a better option is to simply turn our compassion towards ourselves too – this retrograde period is an important one for self-compassion, even while we continue to show love and kindness to the external world too.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Blame and guilt are key words during this retrograde period, Aries – but the good news is that this astrological event will help you to rid yourself of them, for a while at least. This is your chance to understand that sometimes, things just happen. It’s not your fault, and even where you have contributed, you did the best you could at the time. Choose to be okay with that.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Links to a group of people are being challenged during the Neptune retrograde season, and you may find yourself caught up in scandal or lies somehow. Your best bet is to walk away from the group which is creating all the drama, but if you can’t or don’t want to do that, try to keep your head held high. Stay out of the name-calling and the childishness, and focus on higher principles.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Idealistic notions about your career are important during the Neptune retrograde period. It’s not too late to follow a calling, or to find greater meaning in your job, however mundane you might think it is. Find ways to feel empowered and proud of what you do. You don’t have to be changing the world single-handedly to still have a huge impact on the lives of individuals.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

During the Neptune retrograde cycle, your challenge is to be aware that other versions of “the truth” exist – and that they may well be true. Upgrade your thinking on right and wrong, because you’re starting to realize that things aren’t always that simple. There is a lot of philosophical work for you to do here, but you’ll grow as a person with each step you take.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Embrace fear. Everyone has fears and doubts and worries, and pretending you don’t have is self-sabotaging and counter-productive. The Neptune retrograde period is a good time for acknowledging your fears and for accepting them. You don’t have to ‘fix’ them – just be with them and let them be. Living through the fear and thriving anyway is a key part of your spiritual growth.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Neptune retrograde in your house of love reminds you that reality is an important factor in a relationship. It’s all very well to put on your rose-colored glasses, put your lover on a pedestal and turn a blind eye to their faults, but real love involves acknowledging those faults – and loving someone anyway. Embrace the fact that your partner isn’t perfect, and nor are you. And that’s okay.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Everyday life may feel chaotic when Neptune is retrograde, because your organization zone is having to distinguish between truth, lies and half-truths; sometimes it’s hard to know what to believe. Reach out for help if you feel overwhelmed with your daily life responsibilities. Creating a sacred relaxation space at home might help to ground and soothe you.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Your imagination soars when Neptune turns retrograde, and what’s more you’ll find it easier to give life to that imagination through creative and mind-altering projects of all kinds. The more joy you can bring into your life, the more your imagination and intuition will reward you, so seek out spontaneity and feel free to break out of the rut you’ve put yourself in.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

During this Neptune retrograde period, try to avoid smothering your loved ones with too much love. As compassionate as you may feel, it could simply be too much for your family. Give people their freedom and don’t take it personally if they stretch their wings. This is also an important time for learning to forgive, whether that’s forgiving yourself or others.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Truth can be spoken during the Neptune retrograde period in ways which are more difficult when the planet is direct. Speak from the heart and with love when delivering an unwelcome truth to someone, and use your compassion to its fullest extent – but do speak. There is a healing process to be had by airing what needs to be said, Capricorn.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

During the Neptune retrograde period, make an effort to notice your many, many blessings, instead of focusing on things you want but don’t have. This is a period for ditching overly materialistic aims and goals and instead for embracing the deeper nature of what it is to be alive. A gratitude diary will be a big help with this.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Neptune retrograde in your own sign is about accepting yourself, imperfections and all. Stop looking for praise from other people, or needing their validation for who you are. Recognize the divine spark within you and know that you chose this life and this creation for a reason. There are some very profound shifts in perception possible here, although they may take years of retrograde periods to fully complete.

    Your predictions for my life and where im going, feeling and struggling with are so spot-on as to leave me speechless -a rare event indeed. My friends didn't nickname me Ramble for no reason. Even my thoughts, my desires are 100% accurate. I'm trying to decide when to move to New Zealand to meet up with my boyfriend for getting married, and you've called that too. I'm having to sell most of my belongings, things that no longer serve me. Just as you've said in my reading. I'm so looking forward to the next chapter of my life as a married man and a healer of others' sorrow and hurts, which is my destiny. Thank You, Kelli, for your continued recommendations for my life.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve been learning a lot this last year about the planets’ transits and how it affects my daily life/routine so it was very informative. I appreciate you taking the time out to do such a video and I’m looking forward to the next one. I wouldn’t change anything you did. I think you did wonderful!!! Thank you.

    I loved the talk about different zodiacs and the effect this retrograde has on them as I love to know about these things more. Of course it meant a lot more coming from a knowledgeable person face-to-face (kind of) rather than just reading it on the internet. I hope to get my birth chart read so I can know a professional opinion about it. Good luck for the future!

    I want to thank you so much for being that masterful teacher of astrology. Your webinars have awaken a part of me that I’ve interested in since childhood but never really paid much attention to in terms of delving into the study of astrology. Prior to meeting you, astrology was simply my daily / weekly horoscope. Today I’ve come to realize through your immense knowledge of what its significance is to understanding who we are upon birth as well as life’s path. I’m wholeheartedly grateful for the work you do for humanity. May you be blessed with all of the Universal blessings perpetually. Peace profound. Light and progress.

    Hello! Love learning astrology with you! Being a Leo I'm very curious how my future will unfold. I'm happy you involve all signs so no one feels left out. Birthday months are a special treat and I look forward to having a July Leo birthday surprise!
    Would love to learn how we know our moon and house signs. I'm on the cusp of Cancer but I'm really very much a Leo! Thanks so much for having your zoom meetings during our Covid pandemic as I look forward to them!

    I was able to join on my lunch break. I found it very interesting and informative. I’m rather new to this, more than just reading my horoscope, so there were terms that I didn’t understand, but I’m a self starter and did some follow up research so that I can get more out of the next one. I can’t wait ❤️

    Really enjoyed the event, it was really informative. It was the 3rd time I attended your weekly calls - the first call (re: Venus retrograde) had a great amount of detail and was the perfect level of description, I easily understood everything you told us (i.e. it wasn't too advanced). I felt like the 2nd call last week was more basic, too basic for my preferences. The call last night was closer to the level of detail of the first call. Your explanations are really clear and focused. I like that you are able to take questions.
    Overall, I have really been enjoying these calls and have been learning so much! Thank you for doing these! Thank you!

  • ★★★★★

    Me being a beginner in astrology, it is very fascinating and very exciting to hear from a professional astrologer. This is especially helpful for my love life situation seen as though Venus is in retrograde currently. Watching these every week has inspired me to dig deeper into astrology and everything that relates to it, especially because of how accurate and deep it is.

    Although I am new to astrology I have been following you Kelli for some time now trying to take it all in and learn a bit as I go. I have particularly enjoyed your Covid Zoom sessions and feel your relaxed yet very informative sessions have been great. I have much to learn, but hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day haha.
    Cheers & thanks again!

    I think you're doing a great job! You're clear, focused and succinct. I like the way you are able to accommodate the general audience, interpretation of the general outlook for all the signs with the individual charts. Also, regarding my level of Astrological understanding, I've been following Astrology for over 40 years, getting mostly yearly forecasts and looking at the newspapers' daily Astrology columns. I think you're doing a good job of stating the astrological configuration and the implication of such when giving the chart interpretation. I do like getting the configuration info so I can follow it knowing how to work with the energies and how long I'll have to deal with or enjoy them.

    It was great and you are a wonderful, caring and considerate person who is so thorough and devoted to other’s needs and problems.

Also I wanted to also thank you so much for reading my astrology chart ( I put my b-day and time it) but you didn't see the time was 3:57am. 😆 it's okay youre busy reading multiple screens and comments but handle it like the pro you are. Again Thank you! Be Blessed!...

    Hello Kelli,
    Your video was my first Zoom meeting! I enjoyed the meeting, I feel the time of day was good as most of us have the time to attend in the afternoon. The content you covered seemed thorough, I think maybe covering (as simply as possible) the houses would be helpful, but one or two at a time for better understanding. For me, I’d like to know what the most inner, numbered ring means. Overall. I REALLY like your readings. :-)
    Thank you

    I was shocked by this reading! Literally shocked only once in my life was there ever a reading that realized I was born on the cusp of Libra/Scorpio. Kelli hit the nail on the head stating that Oct 23rd was a cusp!
    Thank you for stating this as I feel I share both of these qualities. I have been reading my Astrological signs for years and I read both Libra and Scorpio. The minute I saw you read the correct signs, I just HAD to purchase these readings to read more! Well done Kelli.

    Thank u for giving me the opportunity to listen to the video :) loved the background engineering and voice of the speaker - a lot of thought went into the production of the video:). My understanding is that a broad personality perspective was given than a short insight was given of all the glifs, i.e. Mars, was explained at the time of my birth. That helped to explain a lot of information but the question I have been wanted answered was! I suspected the answer as I am no spring chicken and I was right. I came to be of service to humanity. Namely my family and through my work - it was very concise and thank u for that! :)

    It is truly amazing how exact and perfectly correct, Just about every single day's predictions are from you Kelli. I don’t know how it works but it blows my mind how you can lay out a days events like you do. It doesn’t matter if I read it in the mornings or evening’s, it’s all true. And has given me info on some decisions about important matters that I have followed from your readings. And never been lead astray. I am truly a fan.
