The Astrological Significance of Neptune
Neptune is the planet that helps us stay in tune with our emotions, sensitivities, dreams and intuition. It also inspires us to live up to our own inner spiritual purity and beauty. Neptune rules Pisces, so luckily its retrograde from June 28th to December 3rd will be quite comfortable as it will be in its own sign.
Neptune, the higher octave of Venus, moves through the zodiac at a luxurious pace, spending approximately 14 years in each sign. Neptune rules dreams, fantasies and imagination, along with art, photography, film and glamour. It governs enchantment, magic, healing, intuition, spirituality, mysticism, self-sacrifice, transcendence, idealism, mercy, compassion, forgiveness, and union with divine love. On the darker side of things, it can represent addiction, loss, illusion, deception, and escapism.
The 12th house corresponds to Pisces, ruled by dreamy Neptune. However, in traditional astrology, Pisces is ruled by benevolent Jupiter. This means that Neptune and Jupiter share a role as the ruler of Pisces. The 12th house rules the subconscious and the hidden world. This is where we go to heal ourselves. Psychotherapy and psychological phenomena also fall into this house.
Traditional astrologers viewed this as the house of self-destruction, encompassing anything we could do to undermine or sabotage ourselves. The 12th house also rules over large animals such as horses.
The Roman god Neptune (whose Greek counterpart is Poseidon) rules the sea, all other bodies of water, earthquakes, and horses (his favorite animal). The mighty King Neptune wields a trident and rides in a chariot drawn by several hippocampi.
What is Neptune retrograde?
Neptune Retrograde is a phenomenon that occurs when Neptune appears to be going backwards. During this time your intuition, dreams and psychic perceptions will feel stronger than ever. At the same time, however, you may feel that you cannot trust yourself or your insights. You might be tempted to question yourself, but that’s when you need to trust your gut the most.
Dealing with retrograde Neptune
During Neptune Retrograde you are also asked to take a deep spiritual dive and consider your dreams and desires. You will lift an inner veil and see reality as it is, not just as you want it to be. Dealing with reality can be a bit painful, and you might feel the urge to run away. However, if you stick with it, you will see that it is ultimately for your own good. The illusions will be washed away, but the truth will remain. This can help you reset the course of your life and decide what you want to do.
Remember that if something feels too good to be true, it probably is, especially when Neptune is retrograde. If things still hold when Neptune goes direct, you have something real to work with. Remember that patience is your friend for the roughly five months that Neptune is in retrograde each year.
To ensure you navigate these murky waters safely, listen to your heart, trust your feelings, and follow your hunches. If you can do that, you will reach the clear light of truth.
If your natal chart shows you were born with Neptune retrograde, you’re in luck because you can swim through life’s vagaries with practiced ease. You are not easy to fool and you can focus on your intuition and psychic dreams because you have developed this ability since birth. You are deeply compassionate and naturally drawn to becoming one with the sacred and the divine.
You will subconsciously feel most of Neptune Retrograde’s effects, so this could be a confusing time. You may question your own judgment, and any illusions you harbor may be swept away, leaving only the raw truth. Old wounds can resurface, which might give you a chance to heal them once and for all. If you decide ahead of time to trust your intuition, you may be able to ease your pain and confusion.
Neptune retrograde in the Twelve Houses
Here are some brief descriptions of how Neptune retrograde can affect you as it moves through each house:
You have been asked to find and nurture your inner divinity. You will also be asked to stop seeing yourself for who you really are. For example, you may have put yourself down by telling yourself things that aren’t true and causing yourself pain. This is a chance to see yourself more clearly and start speaking the truth.
Money matters become real when you take a serious look at where your money is going. You’ll be shown where funds have been quietly leaking under your radar. (This is a great time to review old automatic payments for things like subscriptions. Make sure you’re only paying for what you want.) You may want to think about what you have and what you want and how You can facilitate financial abundance.
This is the time to observe how your communication affects others. You will see if your words were too little, too much, too soft or too harsh, especially with siblings. You will find healing words to speak both mentally to yourself and out loud to others. If you tend to daydream while driving and/or running errands, you will be reminded to stay grounded in your body.
You’ll realize if you want to stay where you are or get up and move to a new home. Also, you see your family members as they are, not as they would like you to see them. You can get closer or you can be reminded that blood doesn’t make anyone family. When the latter happens, you may need to ditch potentially abusive numbers. It depends on someone’s behavior, and your friends can be family, too.
It’s time to look again at this enchanting creature that enchants your heart. If you’ve been wondering if this person really is The One, you may know the answer when Neptune gets direct. You’ll finally have more time to be creative, or you might find more ways to interact and play with your kids.
If you’ve been overexerting yourself, working too hard, and just generally overdoing it, this is the time to take an honest inventory of your health and emphasize self-care. Right now, extreme self-care is necessary. Try to take naps when you need them. If you’ve been putting off a medical exam, get one now. Also, take your pets to the vet for their annual check-up.
You may be looking at the people in your life with new eyes and seeing them for who they really are. The veil over your eyes will lift and everything that is blurry or that you have missed will become crystal clear. This could be a time of reckoning and the end. Alternatively, you could fall in love even deeper and develop a stronger unit.
It’s true that money makes the world go round. However, if it turned your world upside down, now see what you need to do to bring it back into balance. This may require some sacrifices, but somehow you will be amply compensated.
When you’re preparing for an exam, lock yourself in and study twice as much as usual. You’ll be thankful because you might get some unexpected test questions. Review your travel plans carefully and be prepared to accommodate unplanned changes at any time.
If you’ve been working on a job or career that you’ve wanted to do or have felt pressure, take a step back and see if this is the path you actually want to go down. What would you really like to do with your life? Find and follow your heart’s desire.
Are your friends who you think they are? Do they support your life as it is now and do you feel a real sense of oneness with them? Or have you outgrown them? If the latter is the case, Neptune Retrograde will help you recognize who you need to leave so that new friends can come into your life. This also applies to your hopes, wishes and dreams.
Let the inner healing begin. If you wish, find a good therapist, friend, or trusted psychic to help you let go of painful thoughts and ideas as they arise. If you’ve felt trapped by old attitudes or ways of thinking, reach out and open your cage. You will discover that you always had the key to your own freedom.
