Neptune:

Where Illusion and Intuition Meet

If your imagination is soaring, your Neptune is probably hard at work creating visions, ideas and magic in your head. If you’ve forgotten to pick the kids up from school and can’t make your mind up what to have for dinner, that’s probably also Neptune’s influence in your astrology chart.

The astrological Neptune is nebulous and hard to pin down. It can bring confusion and indecision, but it can also inspire incredible idealism and compassion. At its best, the planet Neptune helps us to change reality; at its worst, it reveals us at our most slippery and deceitful.

What is the Meaning of Neptune in Astrology?

Neptune in astrology is associated with dreams, altered states of consciousness, spirituality and all things ethereal and magical. Neptune’s position in your natal chart highlights your intuition and your psychic and mediumistic abilities.

This is also the planet of compassion and selflessness - if you’re an empath, Neptune is probably strong in your birth chart. However, the flip side of Neptune can be dishonesty and vagueness. In astrology, Neptune is also about unclarity and confusion, so its position in your astrological chart suggests areas where you may be more gullible than others, or where you may have something you feel you need to hide.

How Did Neptune Get Its Symbol?

You’ve probably seen Neptune’s astrological symbol or glyph – it looks like a trident. Why is this? Well, Neptune is named for the Roman god Neptune, god of the sea, the equivalent of the Greek god Poseidon. The mythological Neptune carried a trident, which he used to stir up the waters to create storms and tempests. The astrological Neptune sometimes does something similar – when this planet is working negatively, emotions can overwhelm us, lies can descent to cover the truth or emotional storms can cloud and obscure the simplest of issues.

What is the Importance of Neptune in the Birth Chart?

Neptune is an extremely slow-moving planet – so much so that it spends, on average, around 14 years in each zodiac sign. For this reason, its planetary influence in astrology is both generational and personal.

Since everyone born in that 14-year period will have Neptune in the same zodiac sign, we can generalize about that generation’s Neptune influences. Your Neptune house is often more important, as this is the place in your birth chart where Neptune exerts a more personal influence. Whether you are blessed with the planet’s more inspirational qualities or whether you will struggle more with its shadow side depends on the aspects made and received by Neptune to and from all of the other planets in your chart.

Key Facts About Neptune in Astrology

Positive expressions of Neptune energy: spirituality, gentleness, empathy, compassion, imagination, intuition, psychic/mediumistic abilities, idealism, artistic talent
Challenging expressions of Neptune energy: deceit, gullibility, vagueness, confusion, indecision, illusion, addiction
Neptune rules: Pisces, that most watery of the zodiac signs. Neptune in Pisces, although still largely a generational influence, is considered to be more powerful than its placement in other signs, because a ruling planet in its own sign is a very pure expression of planetary energy.
Neptune is exalted in: either Cancer or Leo – opinions differ. An exalted planet is usually strong and works positively.
Neptune is in detriment in: Virgo. A planet in detriment is typically quite weak, with its energy manifesting negatively or being misused.
Neptune is in fall in: either Capricorn or Aquarius – opinions differ again. A planet in fall is usually weakened, although positive aspects to the planet will help.

What’s Your Neptune Sign or House?

Remember, in astrology, your Neptune sign is of much less importance than its house. Your Neptune sign will however be of increased importance if it’s Pisces, Cancer or Leo, or if your astrological Neptune is significantly linked to your Sun or your Ascendant.

What Does Neptune in Pisces Mean for Our Spiritual Awakening?

With Neptune now ‘home’ in mystical Pisces, we can see how spirituality has become a much greater concern in the world. More and more people are walking a spiritual path. In astrology, Neptune is intimately connected to spirituality and many astrologers believe that this time period – up to around 2025 – will see a huge shift in our global consciousness. Under Neptune’s guidance, we could turn away from greed and destruction and towards compassion, healing and positive solutions for the world. Let’s hope so! What do you want to see from the current Neptune in Pisces transit?

I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached
