    In a recent article for the Mountain Astrologer, I (Donna Cunningham) wrote that Pluto in Scorpio—the sign it rules—wasn’t like Pluto plus Pluto, it was more like Pluto times Pluto in terms of its concentrated Plutonian energy. This morning I realized that having Neptune in its own sign, Pisces, is a similar concentration of Neptunian energy, perhaps like Neptune times Neptune.

    An excess of Neptune can be expressed in extremely negative ways, no doubt about it. However, today let’s ponder the positive potential of Neptune in Pisces. It seems like we’re in an era when there’s little compassion, when the toughness of Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Scorpio creates an atmosphere of cutting no one any slack.

    So perhaps Neptune in Pisces could be a way the Universe is giving us a break from the relentless toughness of our age.

    Uhm, this Cutting No One Any Slack goes on until 2023.

    Pluto in Capricorn: 2008-2023

    Saturn enters the sign of Scorpio on October 5th, 2012.

    Saturn will occupy the sign of Scorpio from October 5, 2012 to December 23, 2014; and then finishes up its transit from June 14, 2015 to September 17, 2015.

    With Saturn in Scorpio, a strong will meets fierce focus. The result is persistence, endurance and sometimes ruthlessness, in the pursuit of goals. You know how to channel your power in ways that draw on an unseen emotional-psychic force. You can be fixed and unyielding, when you want something. Some hard lessons are about loosening the grip of control, and dealing with obsessive behavior.

    Here Saturn's raw material is the primal core out of which transformative energy emerges. On the journey, you confront many potential dangers as you learn to manage your own intensity. You learn to tame or channel shadow intensity like manipulation, betrayal, abuse, jealousy, bedevilment and revenge. From learning to endure or deal with the wild, potent forces, you claim your true power. By becoming a master of the dark, you face your fears and learn how to go through the death-rebirth process again and again.
