I have never stopped feeling awe with the mystics of the Universe. Just a short half an hour ago, I was curious to check out what the coming full moon is like, and there you go, what a perfect configuration denoting what is going on with our mental struggle and the reality of our circumstance. The opposition between Pisces and Virgo Planets (One vs. Many; balance between Totality of Spirituality and various practices of methodologies) sending t-squares to Jupiter in Sagittarius (World-View, Philosophy, Belief, Truth). As much as there are paradox and confusions , alas, the universe is ONE comprised by many. Just as the saying goes: There are many ways lead to Rome! Now how can we deny the existence of God’s manifestation! Here is an except from an old transcript by Jeff Green, the founder of Evolutionary School of Astrology. And truly it is a perfect illustration for chart of the moment.
Neptune and Pisces specifically correlate with the phenomena of consciousness itself, consciousness in a total sense. Not just consciousness limited to human consciousness, but the entire phenomena of consciousness. Let us agree that consciousness exists everywhere. It is not specific to just the human being. That is the kind of thinking that comes out of the Garden of Eden myth, where the human organism is somehow superior to the totality of creation. Consciousness exists everywhere and in all forms. It exists even in a rock. The only difference is the level of self-awareness within consciousness, consciousness being aware that it is conscious. That is the only issue to focus on in terms of the differentiation of consciousness.
This now connects to the ide of Gaia, and those that promotes Gaia thinking are quite right. It is actually a Shamanistic way of looking at life, meaning all of creation is interactive in consciousness within its totality. And, relative to the principle of evolution, consciousness in various forms have degrees of self-awareness, consciousness being aware of itself. The rock is not conscious that it is a rock, but consciousness exists in the rock. A dog is aware that it is a dog, even though it doe not have the terminology to call itself dog. ( if you dispute this, simply examine the fact that they dream all the time, as do cats.) So if we understand that the totality of creation id entirely conscious and interrelated, it is therefore equal. There is no issue here of superiority or inferiority. Now if we understand this, we simultaneously are dissolving (Neptune) the wrong thought form that the human being, the only kind having consciousness, is superior to any other form of creation. The fact is, again, everything is conscious within the created universe.
Consciousness can be analogous to water. Water of course is Pisces, Neptune, etc. In and of itself water has no form, and yet it can assume the form of any shape or structure that it is put into. At that point it assumes the consciousness that is intrinsic to the form having that shape or structure or nature. Human being is a form. The rock is a form. This microphone is a form. Now the perception of the totality of creation is therefor conditioned by the nature of the form in which consciousness exists. And it is interactive. The medium of interaction is what Yogananda used to call lifetrons (blogger’s note, Chinese call it Qi –气)，which are actually subatomic particles. That is the actual force through which all consciousness interacts. What this really means in essence is that the ultimate consciousness we call God permeates the totality of consciousness via the mechanism called lifetrons, at a subatomic level.
The archetype of Neptune/Pisces is transcendence. Again, Capricorn connects to time and space. Neptune/Pisces connect to infinity, the timeless universal, or the absolute. Every human being on earth has a transcendent impulse within his consciousness. All forms of consciousness have a transcendent impulse. The transcendent impulse itself stimulates the principle of evolution. When we talk about the Soul and the actual dynamic that promotes its evolution i.e. the dynamic within it, we will discuss the fact that there are two simultaneous, yet antithetical desire that are in fact the inner mechanism that promotes the evolution of the Soul.
(We have two conflicting desires ) One desire is to separate from the Source, one desire is to return. The desire to return is ignited through the archetype of transcendence, Pisces. When we take our transcendent impulse, Piscean archetype, seriously, we have to employ, through polarity i.e. Virgo-specific methods, techniques or rituals to allow the transcendent impulse to be not only activated but to become conscious. When we do this, over time the consciousness begins to consciously tune in to this sub-atomic structure within the totality of consciousness that we can all lifetrons, wherein lies the universal consciousness called God. This then allows the transcendent impulse in consciousness to become conscious and actual experience, which is very different from Piscean blind faith. When you connect this back to Scorpio, Scorpio requires truth – show it to me! Only when it is made black and white to the Scorpio ace, he will accept it. And in the last analysis I would argue that anybody in their spiritual life does in fact require proof. Faith may be the carrot offered to the horse leading to experience, and it is positive in that sense. But faith in itself has a limit. So Pisces/Neptune correlates to these sort of ideas.
Religions are functions of the consensus, by the way, whereas true spirituality is universal. Meaning any true form of spirituality will not put down any other valid form of spirituality.
