Neptune Generations: The Image and Culture of Our Society

In generational astrology, the sign Neptune is in represents the image and culture of the age group. This also means that the sign Neptune is in is the image and culture of the time period, as everyone born is "trapped" with the astrological weather of the time they were born for the rest of their life, and with the outer planets, generations are basically "torchbearers" for the time period they grew up in, which is why people tend to be nostalgic for their childhood years, as Pluto and Neptune stay in the same sign for years after a person is born unless they're at the tail end of a generation. Because of this, Neptune's influence is very significant, despite it not being as personal as the Sun, Moon, ascendant, or inner planets.

Neptune in Leo (1914-1929)

This was the Roaring Twenties, as the culture of these years was based on celebrities, movies, jazz music, and extroversion in general after the invention of the telephone and automobile. As a result, the children born during this era have a warmth and thirst for the "good life" that the generation after them didn't (also with Pluto in Cancer).

Neptune in Virgo (1928-1943)

This was the Great Depression and WWII. The culture in this era basically WAS the Depression, as people just wanted a job and a roof over their head, which many didn't have then. The children born during this era are more serious than the Neptune in Leo Pluto Cancers, as Neptune in Virgo was a more serious era in general.

Neptune in Libra (1942-1957)

The postwar era. These years were known for classical music (Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby), postwar prosperity, conforming to social norms (one of the shadow sides of Libra is vanity and wanting to fit in, which is why many Baby Boomers and Gen Xers come off as vain as they have Neptune and Pluto in Libra respectively), and overall peace after the Depression and WWII. As a result, the children born during this era are known as the "flower children" and made up the majority of the Vietnam War protesters, as their desire for peace along with their Pluto Leo pride led to the Hippie movement.

Neptune in Scorpio (1955-1970)

The Sex, Drugs, and Rock n' Roll era. These years were when the Neptune in Libras became teenagers and young adults, and became rebellious in a way that the previous generations weren't. The Hippie movement, Vietnam protests, Summer of Love, and Woodstock all took place during Neptune in Scorpio, as well as the JFK and MLK assassinations (Scorpio rules violence and secrets). This era was dominated by classic rock, and the main acts during this era, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and The Doors to name a few, were a big part of the Sex, Drugs, and Rock n' Roll culture. Motown, girl groups, rockabilly, and Doo Wop were also big during this time, but more in tune with Pluto in Virgo. As a result of the cynicism of this era, the children born in this era are very cynical in nature (like the Pluto Scorpios in the mid 80s-mid 90s), and are the first "tattoo generation" (the other Scorpio generations, Uranus in Scorpio from 1974-1981 and Pluto in Scorpio from 1983-1995, are also heavily tattooed).

Neptune in Sagittarius (1970-1984)

After the cynical 60s, the Neptune in Sagittarius 70s and early 80s was way more vibrant. This was the era of disco, arena rock, and new wave music, all of which had more vibrant and unique sounds than that of the 60s. Bands that were active in the 60s, like the Rolling Stones and The Who, changed their sound to a more 70s style sound, and the lyrics to the songs had more to do with love and relationships (Libra, as the artists that were big during Neptune in Sagittarius had Neptune in Libra and Pluto was also in Libra at the same time as Neptune in Sagittarius) than sex and drugs (Scorpio). Also prevalent during this era was the rise of religious fundamentalism, as a response to Roe vs. Wade and the previous Hippie culture. As a result, the children born during this era tend to be very jovial and vibrant, and the conservatives born during this era tend to be extreme religious fundamentalists.

Neptune in Capricorn (1984-1998)

The materialism culture. As a member of this generation, I was subject to the idea that the goal (Capricorn) in life was to be what you want to be in order to get a lot of money in order to buy material possessions. In the early-mid 90s, some of the most well known commercials were the Sally Struthers ICS commercials, which were Neptune in Capricorn at its most in your face (they're on YouTube if you haven't experienced them). The music associated with Neptune in Capricorn tended to be more slower than the previous era, as soft rock and easy listening music became dominant (Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, George Michael, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Gloria Estefan, etc.), as well as heavy metal, rap, grunge, and hair bands, which were more in tune with Pluto in Scorpio. Also playing a big part of Neptune in Capricorn was the family TV boom, as numerous sitcoms (Fresh Prince, Roseanne, Family Matters, Full House, Cosby Show, Married With Children, Home Improvement, Seinfeld, Saved By The Bell, Cheers, Different World, Friends, Boy Meets World, Step By Step, Wonder Years, etc.) and cartoons (Doug, Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy, Aaahh! Real Monsters, Hey Arnold, The Angry Beavers, etc.) were all big during this era. As a result, the children born during this era, like myself, have a very serious and determined nature.

Neptune in Aquarius (1998-2012)

The technology culture. When Neptune in Aquarius hit, the internet and cell phones became mainstream, social media became a tool used by everyone (Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube all have Neptune in Aquarius with Pluto in Sagittarius), and reality TV became a mainstay on TV, giving normal people the chance to become stars. Neptune in Aquarius was known for being the era of Nu Metal (like metal, but with DJs and turntables being used), indie rock, emo, and techno pop, while Boy Bands and bubblegum pop were also prevalent but more in tune with Pluto in Sagittarius. As a result, the children born during this era are very eccentric in nature.

Neptune in Pisces (2011-2026)

This transit is still ongoing, but some common themes of this era are a rise in alternative spirituality and the PC culture. Pisces rules compassion as well as sensitivity, so it's no coincidence that the PC culture only came into existence during the Neptune in Pisces era. With Pluto in Capricorn happening at the same time, exposing the corruption in government and big business and making knowledge of the Illuminati more mainstream, Neptune in Pisces is making alternative spirituality more mainstream, as an alternative to the organized religions controlled by the Illuminati (Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Catholicism, Mormonism, etc. are all man-made religions and are pitted against each other in order to divide and conquer... a (New World) Order out of chaos (division creates chaos).

Like with Pluto, all Neptune eras are connected. Extroverted Neptune in Leo came before depressing Neptune in Virgo, which came before peaceful Neptune in Libra, which came before cynical Neptune in Scorpio, which came before jovial Neptune in Sagittarius, which came before serious Neptune in Capricorn, which came before eccentric Neptune in Aquarius, etc., and when these Neptune generations become young adults, Pluto enters the sign their Neptune was in at birth, destroying the illusions they were conditioned with during their childhood (Neptune also rules illusions). Also notable is that the masculine Neptune eras are more upbeat than the feminine Neptune eras, which goes hand in hand with the masculine Neptune generations having a more outward image and expression than their feminine Neptune counterparts, which I've noticed in person. In 2026, Neptune will go into Aries for good, which will likely result in a more upbeat era once again.

The PC Culture- Why We Need To Work With It

Over the last few years, the PC Culture has become dominant. If you're against illegal immigration, you're labeled racist, if you're against gay marriage, you're homophobic, if you're against abortion or equal pay, you're sexist, if you're for abortion, you're a baby killer, etc. The thing is, that this is the lower vibration of a major astrological transit going on right now:

Neptune in Pisces.

Neptune first entered Pisces in April 2011, before retrograding into Aquarius in August before entering Pisces for good in February 2012. Neptune, as has been mentioned before, represents the culture of the times. Neptune in Scorpio was the sex and drug culture, Neptune in Sagittarius was the beginning of religious extremism (as a response to Roe vs. Wade, which I'll get into shortly), Neptune in Capricorn was the materialism culture, Neptune in Aquarius was the technology culture, and Neptune in Pisces is the PC and spirituality culture. Neptune also represents the image of a generation, as Neptune in Leo (1914-1929) has a warm image, Neptune in Virgo (1928-1943) has an ordinary image, Neptune in Libra (1942-1957) has a harmonious image, Neptune in Scorpio (1955-1970) has a powerful image, Neptune in Sagittarius (1970-1984) has an exotic image, Neptune in Capricorn (1984-1998) has a serious image, Neptune in Aquarius (1998-2012) has an eccentric image, and Neptune in Pisces (2011-2026) has a dreamy image. The effect of Neptune is clearly felt by everyone despite being much further away than the Sun, Moon, and inner planets, which have a more individual effect because of their short distance from Earth.

What is Neptune in Pisces trying to teach us? At its highest vibration, Neptune represents compassion, spirituality, and sacrifice, things that have been extremely lacking in the world, especially amongst the world's leaders. I have seen its effect first hand, especially in grocery stores, as whenever I have a small amount of items and am behind somebody with a cart full of items, I am usually asked if I want to go ahead of them. That never happened in the materialistic Neptune in Capricorn era. I have also noticed some Evangelical Christian conservatives embracing gay marriage and even mentioning their zodiac signs! Every sign has positives and negatives to it, and it's no coincidence that the elites who run the world push the lower vibrational aspects of the sign Neptune is currently in, knowing that they can't remove the influence altogether. Sex and drugs are the shadow side of Scorpio, religious extremism us the shadow side of Sagittarius, materialism is the shadow side of Capricorn, over reliance on technology at the expense of personal relationships is the shadow side of Aquarius, and not wanting to hear anything negative, regardless if it's truth or not, and preferring to live in an illusion is the shadow side of Pisces.

And when the kids born with Neptune in a certain sign become young adults, Pluto will be in that sign, destroying their illusions that they were exposed to during their childhood. Pluto in Libra resulted in liberal divorce laws, Roe vs. Wade (at the same time as Neptune in Sagittarius), and people wanting a "good guy" as president after the Watergate Scandal, Pluto in Scorpio destroyed "free sex" with HIV/AIDS, Pluto in Sagittarius exposed just how divisive religion is and 9/11 had a major effect on world travel, and Pluto in Capricorn, which is going on now (2008-2024), is exposing the corruption of government and big business, as well as the effects of materialism (the likes of the Walton Family and the Koch Brothers have enough to purchase every property in certain cities!). Pluto in the chart is how the generation transforms society and is the generation's core reality. Pluto in Cancer (1912-1939) is about family and patriotism at its core, and it's no coincidence that this generation were the young soldiers in WWII and the Korean War fighting for the country they and their families lived in, Pluto in Leo (1937-1958) is about creativity, status, and attention at its core, and it's no coincidence that they were the Hippies protesting the Vietnam War, Pluto in Virgo (1956-1972) is about health, technology, and service at its core, and technology expanded rapidly when they became adults, Pluto in Libra (1971-1984) is about fairness, relationships, and justice at its core, and it's no coincidence that Pluto in Libra natives often speak out in favor of equal pay, gay marriage, immigrants' rights, work/life balance, among other things on Facebook and Twitter (this generation makes up a large portion, if not the majority, of the Occupy Movement members and "SJWs" (Social Justice Warriors), Pluto in Scorpio (1983-1995) is about insight, secrecy, sexuality, and power at its core, and it's no coincidence that knowledge of the Illuminati became commonplace when this generation became adults, as well as transgender rights becoming mainstream. Pluto in Sagittarius (1995-2008) is about freedom and optimism at its core, though the oldest natives are only 22 years old, and as a result their influence hasn't been felt yet.

While it's not good to suppress any and all dissent because of sensitivity, Neptune in Pisces wants humanity to become more compassionate, understanding, and spiritual rather than materialistic, self centered, and religious, especially since Neptune is the planet that rules Pisces, and that often means letting go of dogmatic beliefs and materialistic philosophies, especially if they don't benefit the greater good (Pisces). That is an issue for the elites, who don't feel like they ever have enough, and thus they are pushing the lower vibration of Pisces in order to suppress true spiritual enlightenment.

Universal Basic Income- Why It Should Be Embraced

Similar to gay marriage 10 years ago, one of the ideas that is slowly building steam today is that of a Universal Basic Income for everyone. What is Universal Basic Income? It is an unconditional fixed amount of money, similar to Social Security, but given to everyone in the country. It is an idea praised by people on the left because it combats economic inequality, and praised by Libertarians because it grants freedom from being a wage slave to the state, yet not embraced by people on the right because it's "socialist" and enables people to be lazy. That being said, here are the reasons why Universal Basic Income should be embraced, and eventually be reality:

Freedom- In order to survive comfortably in today's society, you have to work for an average of 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for around 40 years before retirement, which is a nice way of saying "you're too old to produce for us, so here's a fixed amount every month because you're not useful anymore". Life should be more than being away from your family 5 days a week in order to survive. A work/life balance is extremely important, yet many, if not most, don't have that. Universal Basic Income would allow for a balance between work and family life and give people the freedom to be what they want to be without struggling for survival.

Wage Increases- With a Universal Basic Income, employers would need to implement higher wages in order for employees to feel justified in working for that company or business. If everybody got $5,000 a month, which would equal $60,000 a year, unconditionally (if they save a certain amount every month, they could live extremely comfortably), they wouldn't HAVE to keep working at a job that is unsatisfying if they don't need to.

Growth Of Technology- With cars that drive themselves in the works, it is very likely that technology, mainly in the form of robots and computerized machines, will be doing the jobs that humans have done (Pluto will enter Aquarius, the sign of technology, in early 2023). With humans being replaced by machines, there won't be enough jobs for everyone, hence why Universal Basic Income will soon need to be reality.

The Old Ways Are Outdated- With the US Pluto return coming up in 2022, then Pluto entering Aquarius, a sign that represents individuality and freedom, systems that suppress those qualities simply won't cut it anymore. At the time of the Pluto return, the oldest Neptune in Aquarius natives will be 24 years old, and the oldest Pluto in Sagittarius (another sign that is about freedom) natives will be 27 years old. These people will demand freedom from oppressive systems, just like how us Pluto in Scorpio natives (the oldest being 38 years old at the time of the Pluto return) demand the truth.

Less Programs- With everybody of working age having a Universal Basic Income, the rest of the safety net programs wouldn't have to exist outside of Medicare, which should be free for everyone (the doctors and nurses would all have Universal Basic Income, and would be getting higher wages for their services, so they'd be compensated very well). One program and one fixed wage for everyone would mean A LOT more simplicity.

Less Class Warfare- Right now, the middle class is declining rapidly, as a result of the wealth of select billionaires (Loch Brothers, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, George Soros, Walton Family, etc.) ballooning to a point where they can purchase every property in certain cities, which results in an extremely large poor and working class. This is an issue that needs correction, and needs to never happen again when it is fixed, and Universal Basic Income will prevent that from happening.

Less Crime- It's a fact that most crime occurs in low income neighborhoods. With everybody 18 and over having Universal Basic Income, low income neighborhoods will become high income neighborhoods, which will heavily reduce crime in those neighborhoods, making the people in those neighborhoods feel safer.

Better Working Conditions- With a Universal Basic Income for everyone, working conditions would need to be improved in order for people to justifiably work at places that historically have poor working conditions.

Because of these reasons, the positives far outweigh the negatives in regards to Universal Basic Income, which is why it needs to be implemented sooner rather than later, regardless of the fear of it from conservatives due to it being a "socialist" policy. The needs of humanity as a whole trump the need for some to have a higher status than others, which is another result of the divide and conquer scheme.

The Generations Series- An Analysis

Here are some very informative links I found on Pluto, Neptune, and Uranus generations:

http://www.lifebysoul.com/2017/01/01/the-generations-series-part-one-the-greatest-generation-1914-1929-and-the-silent-generation-1929-1948/

http://www.lifebysoul.com/2017/03/28/the-generation-series-part-six-the-summary/

While there are some differences (she calls Pluto Sagittarius/Neptune Aquarius the Millennials and Pluto Scorpio/Neptune Capricorn simply Generation Y, but her reasoning for this is really strong), her descriptions of all these generations hit home.

The Greatest Generation- My grandma was from this generation, and it describes that age group very well. Family oriented and patriotic, yet had a warm energy to her, like everybody else in that age group (Bob Barker, Ed McMahon, Chick Hearn, Jack Kemmon, Walter Matthau, Walter Cronkite, Betty White, etc.).

The Silent Generation- Don't know anybody from this group very well, but I have noticed that they're patriotic and family oriented like the Greatest Generation, yet not as warm, which coincides with Neptune in Virgo.

Baby Boomers- My mom (as are my aunts and uncles and my biological dad) is from this generation, and the description hits home. Very much in need of acknowledgment for their achievements, and the shadow side is extreme materialism (Boomers entered their prime during the Neptune in Capricorn materialism era). The refusal to step aside is also represented by the Boomers having the presidency or vice presidency since 1989 (Dan Quayle, Clinton/Gore, George W Bush, Joe Biden, Donald Trump... going on 30 years with the Boomers in charge!), and the following generation has had no power until Obama and Mike Pence.

Crisis Generation- From the people I know in this generation (mostly teachers), very accurate. Extremely service oriented to a fault, tend to be extremely organized and efficient, and often involved in athletics (male teachers). My high school classmates who had parents from this group were often involved in extra curricular activities, which ties in to how this group is often named "Generation Jones". The leftists in this generation tend to be extreme environmentalists as well.

Generation X- My three older cousins are from this group, as well as half of my high school teachers, and once again, extremely accurate. My two oldest cousins have Uranus in Libra, while the other one has Uranus in Sagittarius, yet all are relationship oriented to a fault, and my Gen X high school teachers treated me like an equal (Pluto in Libra). My best friend's mom is at the beginning of the Pluto in Libra generation, and is very relationship oriented and treats me like an equal as well, despite me not technically being a family member. Very accurate.

Generation Y- My generation, and once again, very accurate, especially with questioning the old ways. There clearly has to be more to life than being a wage slave until you're no longer useful to the elites, than voting for two sides of the same coin every four years (Democrats and Republicans), than going to church once a week where somebody tells you that you were born bad and thus need to give your personal power away in order to be "saved", etc. If you look at the logos of all the denominations of Christianity and the books of the evangelists on TV, you'll see Illuminati symbolism, just like you'll find on the dollar bills, corporation logos, sports team logos, campaign signs of politicians, etc. Many from my generation, including myself, don't understand the appeal of the current, yet outdated, way of life, when it's clear that it's all there to control the masses and prevent humanity from achieving true enlightenment. And dabbling into occult subjects, like astrology and numerology (which Christianity labels a sin and the work of Satan, which would mean that if the church isn't lying, that SATAN created us, as I can clearly see the signs of everybody I know in their personalities), is one of the only ways to get this knowledge as it's THAT hidden.

Millennials- I know a select few from this group, and like usual, it describes them perfectly. This generation is very energetic and eccentric, and freedom is a necessity for them.

World Changers- Too young to display full characteristics yet.

Once again, it is extremely important to know about the outer planets and their roles, just as much as it is to know about the inner planets and ascendant, as they define the roles (Pluto), dreams (Neptune), and rebellious nature (Uranus) of entire groups of people, so knowledge of these astrological placements could weaken or even end the generational feuds, which is why they're not promoted in the mainstream (divide and conquer). The culture of the times is represented by Neptune (Neptune in Scorpio is the drug culture, Neptune in Sagittarius is the Jesus Movement, Neptune in Capricorn is the materialism culture, Neptune in Aquarius is the technology culture, Neptune in Pisces is the spirituality culture) and the theme of the times is represented by Pluto (Pluto in Libra resulted in liberal divorce laws, legalized abortion, and people wanting a "good guy" as president after the Watergate scandal, Pluto in Scorpio was the birth of AIDS, destroying the concept of free sex, Pluto in Sagittarius was 9/11 and 7/7/05, revealing the truth about organized religion and changing world travel forever, Pluto in Capricorn is the exposing of the corruption involving big business and government), and even trends in the entertainment industry are a result of the outer planets' influence (Pluto in Virgo/Neptune in Scorpio was Motown, Doo Wop, Rockabilly, girl groups, and classic rock, Pluto in Libra/Neptune in Sagittarius was arena/progressive rock, disco, and new wave, Pluto in Scorpio/Neptune in Capricorn was hair bands, heavy metal, Grunge, and Gangsta rap while being known for the sitcom boom, Pluto in Sagittarius/Neptune in Aquarius was boy bands, Bubblegum Pop, Nu Metal, and emo music while being known for reality TV). Knowledge of the influence of the outer planets would help everybody understand how and why the world works the way it does.
