Besides being a teacher, consultant, researcher and conference organizer, Evolutionary Astrologer, Maurice Fernandez, is a strong advocate for astrologers seeking to make their craft a profession which supports their livelihood. I read the original “Neptune” book back in 2004 and look forward to seeing the updated one which offers insight into the expression of Neptune within the 7 stages of evolutionary development.
Here is Maurice with a few thoughts on his process and some book reviews.
Writing Neptune, the 12th house, and Pisces was a transformative experience, not only because it provided clarity on the astrological meanings of this archetype, but essentially because it took me on an actual journey to explore the existential question: Why so much suffering for the innocent.
The book provide both extensive multilayered descriptions of Planets in the 12th house and Neptune placements by house and sign, but also quick bullet point descriptions that can help readers capture the essence of each placements.
This is the (2018) 2nd edition to the original (2004) publication, rewritten and expanded upon through continued research and new layers of understanding.
Maurice is scarily correct in these descriptions. You recognize yourself and your friends and family and feel that Maurice is talking to YOU.
This book takes a place among the classics of astrological literature. It belongs on your bookshelf. It’s a 5 star. A+ book.
…that I’ve been working through everything you wrote in Neptune, The 12th house and Pisces: The Timelessness of Truth. It is a magnificent book, and the signatures, to me anyway, are accurate, profound, and healing. As I read, I continually bring up client and celebrity charts — one Scorpio to another 🙂 — it all works!
I’ve never read anything before that came even close to making such intelligent, deep sense of my relationship history as the Libra-Pisces signature. (My Neptune in Libra shares the Eighth with Venus, they’re conjunct by translation of light.)
The first edition was one of the most significant astrology books i had read up to that time…So many things came into place about this world, other worlds, Maya, creativity, shadow to exalted frequencies of planetary expressions, and in general the power of the transpersonal planets.
And, of course, it was revelatory regarding my own tangoed relationship with the force of Neptune — in its exact trine to my own North Node, conjunction (wide-ish) to Saturn, square to Uranus in the 12th, and the honorary rulership of Cancer Moon in the 12th.
Will be very interested to discover how your understanding has evolved, Rabbi Fernandez, and will order.

I am loving your book! As a 9th house Sag with Neptune conjunct my sun and a Pisces Moon in the 11th it is all sooooo relevant for me. Wow. I just wanted to say THANK YOU. Thank your unique expression and deep dive into these energies and eloquent way of bringing it all together.
