  1. Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to mention that since Neptune has gone into Pisces the autism rates have doubled from about 1 in 70 children to 1 in 36 children born with autism. I work with special needs children and required to do a training on child suicide, which is much more prevalent in children with ASD. I found it interesting, and quite alarming, that the number of children visiting the ER for suicidal thoughts and attempts had doubled between 2007-2015. These are the stats for the US only.

    Neptune is confusion, extreme sensitivity, etc., while Pisces being the 12th house of the natural zodiac rules the subconscious, the inner world. Its symbol, the two fish, also represents duplicity. Up and down swimming between highs and lows. Children, in the US anyway, have been very sensitive to bullying, critisism etc. Older generations are voicing their opinion that these children should toughen up and that their (the older) generation dealt with bullying as well and they were not as drastically effected by it. Of course, you can’t approach many people and explain that Neptune, a large outer planet that is influencing a generation, is part of the problem. But this is what I feel might be contributing to the overall sensitivity, extremes of emotions, rises in autism and suicide rates among children.

    My question is, what do we do about it? Can we do anything about it? Or is this just what is meant to happen?

    Any thoughts?

    1. Thank you. That is interesting about autism. Do you have a source for those figures? And assume this is the US or is it worldwide? The Twelfth House and Pisces are associated with psychiatrists and psychologists, as well as psychics, because they describe the inner life and internal world. In the Middle Ages the Twelfth House was about prayer and priests, but also solitary confinement in prison, and was long associated with psychiatric hospitals in the Twentieth Century. So it’s worthy of investigation. And your next question should be, what happened the last time Neptune was in Pisces, too?

  2. I have an image from a CDC slide show with data but can’t post images within this page. Yes this is chilren in the USA and CDC reports that Children born in 2016 were more likely (56%) to receive an autism diagnosis by age 4 compared with children born in 2012.

    The journey of Neptune through Pisces, prior to this one, was from 1847-1862. During that time Thomas S. Kirkbride, one of the founders of the American Psychiatric Association wrote a book titled, “On the Construction, Organization, and General Arrangements of Hospitals for the Insane” (1847) which guided the design of progressive mental institutions for decades.

    There were so many “firsts” for mental institions during that time frame:

    25 Mar 1845 The New Jersey state legislature authorized construction of the state’s first mental hospital, the New Jersey Lunatic Asylum at Trenton. The legislative action was largely due to the efforts of mental health care reformer Dorothea Dix. The hospital was the first to be built on the “Kirkbride plan” for hospital construction. When the hospital admitted its first patients on May 15, 1848, it was the first hospital promoted by Dix to open.

    13 Jan 1846 The first legislation to provide for separate treatment of people with mental retardation was introduced in the New York State Senate by E. F. Backus. Backus introduced a resolution calling for purchase of land and construction of buildings. It was not until 1851 that an experimental school was established in Albany. It proved so successful that a permanent state facility was established in 1854.

    5 Mar 1847 The governor of Louisiana approved an act that established the Louisiana Insane Asylum in Jackson, the state’s first state mental hospital. The hospital opened in mid-November, 1848 when 85 patients were transferred from Charity Hospital in New Orleans. James King was the first superintendent of the institution. The hospital is now named East Louisiana State Hospital. On July 1, 1910, the state legislature added a ward for mentally ill criminals.

    1 May 1847 An early Canadian facility for the care of mentally ill people was opened in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

    1 Dec 1847 The Butler Hospital for the Insane was opened in Providence, Rhode Island. Butler Hospital was Rhode Island’s first hospital exclusively for mentally ill patients. It was originally endowed by the will of Nicholas Brown, dated March 3, 1843. Mentally ill patients were also cared for at the Dexter Hospital for the Insane, a portion of a general hospital for the poor, founded in 1828. Isaac Ray planned the hospital and was its superintendent until 1867.

    15 Jan 1848 An act of the Missouri state legislature established the state’s first mental hospital, at Fulton, Missouri. The hospital was founded with the prosaic name State Hospital No. 1 and is now named Fulton State Hospital. The first patients were admitted early in 1852.

    15 May 1848 Carl Wernicke was born. Wernicke gained fame with his work on the neurology of aphasia, which he published in 1874 at the age of 26. Wernicke’s aphasia, as one form came to be known, was attributed to temporal lobe damage, resulting in impairment in speech comprehension and, by extension, speech production. The critical area of the temporal lobe is now known as Wernicke’s area.

    17 Aug 1848 The Norwegian parliament passed the Act for the Treatment and Care of the Mentally Ill, Norway’s first parliamentary law relating to mental health. The act was the work of Fredrik Holst and Herman Major. It was followed by the establishment of Norway’s first psychiatric hospital, the Gaustad Asylum, in 1855.

    21 Nov 1848 The first state mental hospital in Indiana, the Indiana Hospital for the Insane, in Indianapolis, admitted its first patients. The legislature provided land for the hospital on January 13, 1845 and provided building funds on January 19, 1846. The name of the institution was changed on March 3, 1927 to Central State Hospital. This hospital closed in 1994 and patients were transferred to Larue D. Carter Memorial Hospital, also in Indianapolis.

    7 Apr 1849 Pennsylvania Governor William F. Johnson laid the cornerstone of the Pennsylvania State Lunatic Hospital, although preliminary work had begun in 1848. The hospital’s board of trustees first met on February 14, 1851, and elected John Curwen to be superintendent, with a salary of $1500 per year. The first patient, Elizabeth B. of Londonderry, was admitted on October 6, 1851. The hospital is now named Harrisburg State Hospital.

    21 Jan 1850 Mental health activist Dorothea Dix presented a memorial to the legislature of Nova Scotia, urging the construction of a public mental hospital. While Dix submitted similar documents to the legislatures of many U.S. states, this appears to be the only appeal to a Canadian province. Dix took an active part in selecting the site in Halifax of the resulting hospital.

    3 Nov 1851 The Illinois State Hospital for the Insane, the first state mental hospital in Illinois, opened for the admission of patients. J. M. Higgens was the first medical superintendent. The hospital resulted from an 1847 expos of neglectful treatment conditions presented to the state legislature by mental health care crusader Dorothea Dix. The name of the hospital was later changed to Jacksonville State Hospital.

    9 Feb 1852 Following the urging of Dorothea Dix in 1849, the Alabama state legislature passed a bill “To Establish a Hospital for Insane Persons in Alabama.” Construction on the state’s first mental hospital, Alabama Insane Hospital, began in Tuscaloosa later in the year. The hospital came to be known as Bryce Hospital after a second branch of the Alabama Insane Hospital, Mt. Vernon Hospital, opened in 1901 for the care of African-American patients.

    1 Mar 1852 Central Hospital for the Insane was opened near Nashville, Tennessee. Central Hospital was commissioned by the state legislature on February 5, 1848, following an appeal by mental health activist Dorothea Dix, who had visited the state’s existing inadequate facilities. William A. Cheatham was the hospital’s first superintendent.

    17 May 1853 The state of California enacted its first law regarding mental illness. It described procedures for the involuntary confinement of people with mental illness and provided state funding for the care of indigent patients. California’s first state mental hospital was the Insane Asylum of California, later named Stockton State Hospital, which opened in 1853 with W. T. Brown as its medical superintendent.

    28 May 1853 Sheppard’s Asylum, an early private mental hospital, was founded by Moses Sheppard and others. Actual construction outside Baltimore, Maryland, was delayed by restricted funds and the Civil War until groundbreaking on May 25, 1862. The first patient, a 46-year-old woman diagnosed with “dementia,” was admitted on December 6, 1891. In 1898, the hospital’s name was changed to the Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital to recognize a major benefactor.

    15 Nov 1853 The Asylum Journal of Mental Science, the principal British psychiatric journal, first appeared, under the editorship of Sir John Bucknill. The title was later changed to the Journal of Mental Science.

    13 Apr 1855 The New York state law established the New York State Lunatic Asylum for Insane Convicts, the world’s first mental hospital for criminal patients, separate from a prison or general hospital. The first facility opened in 1859 in Auburn, New York, ajoining a state prison. The hospital moved to a new building in Matteawan in 1892 and was named Matteawan State Hospital.

    26 Dec 1858 A facility for the care of people with mental illness was opened in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This was the first facility of its kind in the province. Previous to 1858, people with mental illness had been sent to the “lunatic ward” of the Provincial and City Poor’s Asylum or cared for at home.

    2 Feb 1859 The New York State Lunatic Asylum for Insane Convicts, the world’s first mental hospital for criminal patients, separate from a prison or general hospital, was opened in Auburn, New York. Edward Hall was the hospital’s first superintendent. The hospital moved to a new building in Matteawan in 1892, but these facilities were soon overcrowded and a second institution, Dannemora State Hospital, opened on November 15, 1900.

    23 Apr 1859 The first patient was admitted to the Michigan Asylum for the Insane. This hospital, located at Kalamazoo, was Michigan’s first state mental hospital. It was originally proposed by the governor on February 28, 1848, but was not officially opened until August 29, 1859, under superintendent Edwin H. Van Deusen. The hospital’s name was later changed to Kalamazoo State Hospital.

    22 Oct 1859 The Lunatic Asylum West of the Alleghany Mountains was opened for patients in Weston, Virginia. The hospital became part of West Virginia at the time of the Civil War and was renamed the West Virginia Hospital for the Insane on November 12, 1863, thus becoming West Virginia’s first state mental hospital. The name was later changed to Weston State Hospital and is now Weston Hospital.

    14 Jul 1860 The first patient was admitted to Wisconsin’s first state mental hospital, in Mendota, three years after the state legislature approved construction of the hospital on March 6, 1857. J. Edwards Lee was the hospital’s first superintendent. Although this was a statewide facility, Wisconsin was unique among the states in the nineteenth because of its heavy reliance on a system of small county mental health facilities.

    6 Mar 1861 The first state mental hospital in Iowa, Mount Pleasant State Hospital, opened for the receipt of patients. R. J. Patterson was the first superintendent of the institution and was paid a salary of $1600 per year.,Backus.

    Another interesting fact is that Bach, Handel, and Scarlatti were all born in 1685 during a Neptune in Pisces transit. Bach and Handel were born within weeks of each other and both went blind near the end of their lives.

  3. I have really felt the Neptune Transit in my life both natally and in the natural aries sign. Since 2011 I’ve been having a serious existential crisis. I’ve lost multiple jobs, homes, relationships and can’t seem to get a footing on solid ground. Its like the earth beneath me is liquid and constantly changing. Very disorienting for a sure footed goat to not be able to get footing. I am totally feeling Neptune’s waves tossing me about like rudderless ship at the mercy of the great ocean. I just have to hang on for dear life and see which island I wash upon.

    I feel like what am I doing here in this life if I can’t even control it. I have felt this in a very conscious and literal aspect as well as spiritually. Questioning God, life, all that is and what, if any meaning, there is to all of this madness.

    Regarding this current aspect of Neptune; I have Juno 27 Aqu (natal 2nd), Ceres 26 Pisces (Natal 3rd), and Diana 25 Sag (Natal 12th). Not 100% confident in how aspects influence our chart. Is it just for that week or does it last for a longer time?

    I find it interesting that all of my natal aspects to this sextile are asteriods. And that two of them are related to Jupiter yet are opposite, Juno being loss of freedom and Diana being independence. Again, my tug of war continues and Juno in the earthly values is where I lose my freedom yet gain security which has been the theme in my weekly horoscopes. Diana in my natal house of dreams, unconscious, religion, I gain a sense of indepence. So maybe I will be empowered with my own interpretation of the spiritual side of life and how that all works. Finally, my natal Ceres is in exact conjunction to Neptune during this sextile and is a symbol of power stuggles and control. I am hoping this flow between Neptune and Juno which pulls in my natal Juno and the other two asteriods, will open a flow and path for me to follow that fits my material and spiritual values.

    Regarding the two of cups, maybe the reconcilliation will be between my outer and inner worlds!

    Finally, the card I drew personally, QUEEN OF CUPS! So me and references Neptune and drifiting in unreality. It also mentions to stop dithering and do something to turn my thoughts into actions and thus something concrete. Probably the key to fixing the internal/external war being waged within me now!

    One more things, since Neptune has been in Pisces, herione rates in USA have skyrocketed!

    Look at the chart from 2010 to 2013 in the middle of the page!

  4. The date that jumped off the page here is April 2011. On Apr 26, 2011 I was driving down the levee next to the Mississippi river and a friend called to say all the storage units were taken. I’d been oblivious to the fact that since early April the river had been rising and was expected to crest anywhere from 61-64 ft, a never before situation. 70% of the residents on the lower side of the river (La) moved across to high ground until the river was deemed safe to return around the end of July or early August. The fear was that the river would burst in through one or more levees and flood half of the state. Ironically, we were going through one of our worst droughts in years.

    For this week, my degrees were Ceres conj Neptune in Pisces at 1 deg. When I look at your description of Ceres it fits my challenge this week to let go of a situation that happened last week, which might have been reflected in the 6 of wands which I pulled the day before you did in class.
