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!

    I enjoy attending Zoom events on Thursday, especially when you choose and analyze charts for those who are present at the time. I can imagine their faces and I already know their names, and I feel like I know you all :-) And I'm always thrilled the way you react (like a child) when you open any chart, because you always see good things first, but also give useful advice when needed. That says a lot about you Kelli and I just love it. Thank you for that! :-) P.S. I can't mark the stars (I don't know why) but they're all on!Cached
