Each planet represents an archetypal and fundamental energy that expresses a method, a set of key principles that are central to each planetary archetype.

Neptune is the second trans-saturian planet, the ruler of Pisces and the sphere of life in the Twelfth House.

Neptune was discovered in 1846, and true to its illusionary nature was discovered indirectly due to the fact that astronomers could tell something was affecting the orbit of Uranus, by a process of deduction Neptune was uncovered. Neptune is said to be connected to the collective consciousness and to spiritual evolution. Observation has been found it to represent non-material influences like dreams and illusions. It brings dissolution of established structures and represents idealistic drives - both on a social and a spiritual level. Neptune main characteristics are said to be unlimitedness and the dissolution of the boarder between the conscious mind and the subconscious - or even the 'unconscious'. Neptune opens the door to the divine, often leaving a residual discontentment and confusion about mundane existence.

As Neptune takes 165 years to orbit the Sun, it spends about 14 years in any one sign. Neptune's influence is therefore experienced most strongly as long-term collective changes. Neptune's sign position shows the collective need to transcend everyday life through the media, films and visionary ideals.

The House position of Neptune shows where specifically you will feel the need to transcend. This House area will show where dreams are built up and dissolve and in what area of life you gain spiritual understanding through acceptance of the transience of all things.

Aspects of Neptune show personality traits which are strongly affected by dreams and idealism. These aspects indicate where you have unrealistic expectations and where you will experience disappointment until you refine your nature through spiritual insight.

In mythology, Neptune, like his Greek counterpart Poseidon was the god who ruled the oceans.

In karmic astrology Neptune represents a multitude of possibilities from our urge to unite with the mystical and spiritual through to our need for escapism and karma related to addictions and suffering.

If used well Neptune enhances our imagination, creativity, mediumistic tendencies, gives us great sensitivity and develops our spirituality. A rich dream life, the ability to enter altered states of consciousness, artistic inspiration and musical talent are also indicated.

If misused then Neptune can lead to subversion, lack of clarity, instability, carelessness and hypersensitivity. Dependency related issues such as drug addiction and alcoholism and the adoption of a victim mentality are possible.
