This planet, like Uranus, was discovered in the modern era and
experience suggest an affinity with Pisces.
Neptune has a delicate
musical and artistic sense and an idealism and spirituality that
recall Venus, whilst in other ways it is reminiscent of Jupiter,
and its connection with drugs and poisons is distinctly Piscean.
It has a clear connection with all marine matters, and indeed
with many things related to liquidity. It is the planet of the
creative imagination, ranging downwards from the inspiration of
the great poets and artists to the terrible and diseased fancies
of the criminal and mentally afflicted. It is the planet of pretence
and deception, including self-deception; it has a general tendency
to make things appear other than they are, whence its relation
to the stage and film. Those with a badly placed Neptune cannot
be too careful to exercise common sense and to avoid all that
is not entirely aboveboard, plain and straightforward.
appears to rule spiritualism and kindred practices. It is extremely
sensitive, physically and mentally. Neptune often causes worry
rather than actual misfortune. It is less a source of hardship
than Saturn, yet if often calls for the exercise of renunciation.
The action of Neptune is subtle, gradual, and sometimes insidious.
Neptune dissolves the boundaries between illusion and “ordinary” common
sense reality. It dissolves self-interest and egoism, so that
it can represent unselfish impulses and creative imagination.
Equally though, it can represent self-destructive impulses; illusions,
delusions, hallucinations, deceit and treachery. The affects of
alcohol and most drugs, especially those which act on and distort
perception and self-perception, are wholly Neptunian. Film-makers,
actors and novelists are ruled by Neptune, though they are ruled
by other planets as well; their illusory nature is Neptunian.
anyone is sensitive and compassionate, Neptune is involved.
The negative features of Neptune are by no means always immediately
visible. Neptune is exceedingly sinister planet though it cannot
be called “malefic”; being so intimately connected
with the good and the beautiful. It plays its part in madness,
credulousness, treachery, fraud and lying. Neptune always features
in cases of paranoia and delusions of grandeur. It is also involved
in escapism, vulgarity and vagueness. Persistently self-deluded
people have Neptune in difficult positions, though this is not
always easy to see. In many charts of men and women who are
known liars and swindlers, Neptune seems problematic.
Neptune will tend to refine whatever energies it comes into contact
with in the natal chart. It will seek to refine, purify cleanse;
to erase imperfections or defects. Planets touched by Neptune
are rendered both purer and more difficult to get hold of. Neptune
tends to remove coarseness or vulgarity from whatever planetary
principles it touches. It will incline whatever that planet represents
to greater delicacy, purity and subtlety.
The ability to discern
and appreciate subtlety is one of the main gifts of the Neptunian
principle. This is surely one of the reasons why those whose charts
are strongly touched by this planet are often very creative or
artistic since Neptune heightens perception.
our urge to transcend and escape from ordinary reality. Whatever
Neptune touches in the chart it will urge that part of us to go
beyond the mundane, to exceed the limits imposed upon us by living
in the real world. Neptune will urge us to rise beyond earthly
and material considerations. At best Neptune inspires us to go
further, excel, surpass and exceed. When Neptune touches a planet
in our chart we are capable of being very idealistic in expressing
that planets energies. We often want to do so in the highest and
purest way. Where Neptune is situated or what Neptune touches
tends not to accept (possibly not even recognise) boundaries;
it seems as if nothing will get in the way of the attainment of
the wish, dream or desire.
Neptune likes glamour, where Neptune
touches a planet in our chart we want what that planet expresses
to be expressed in the most glamorous way possible.
probably the most difficult planetary energy to understand. Its
nature eludes definition because it is associate with aspects
of the universe that are unclear, illusory, delusory, ill-defined
and even imaginary. But Neptune can be understood in part by defining
what it is not. Even more than Uranus, it is an energy that negates
everything that Saturn stands for. If Saturn is reality, Neptune
is unreality. If Saturn is our notion of time and space, Neptune
is outside time and space. Neptune symbolises the truth and divinity
perceived by mystics.
Neptune energies are extremely hard for most people to deal with,
simply because to be successful in the so called real world, one
must be able to deal effectively with Saturn, and it is hard to
deal effectively with both planets at once.
Neptune is connected
with psychic people of all kinds. Neptune can represent either
illusion or mystical illumination, depending on one’s spiritual
evolution. For this reason Neptune can represent the highest and
lowest aspects of human experience, the most beautiful and painful
of human emotions.
