Neptune Transits: Predictive Astrology - Techniques for Predicting the Future

Back to Predictive Astrology Main Page

Overview:

NeptuneNeptune takes approximately 164 years to come full circle—too long to complete a cycle through our natal charts. This slow-moving planet's transits are long-lasting, and each transit takes its time to unfold. As Neptune transits a point in our chart, retrogrades back over it, and then hits it again in direct motion, it imparts its own special wisdom upon the point in question—the areas of lives and parts of our psyches ruled by that point.

How Neptune affects our lives depends very much on whether we resist its influences or we try to work with the planet of illusion and spirituality. It is common for Neptune's influence to be a confusing one in the first portion of the transit. The ultimate "lesson" of Neptune is to help connect us to the world of the intangible. This is in stark contrast to Saturn's transits, which re-connect us to the tangible, material world.

Whichever part of our lives and of our psyches that Neptune touches, especially by hard transit, is an area where we may feel "up in the air" and confused in the initial stages of the transit. Boundaries are not as clear,  commitments are elusive, and perception is confused. If the Sun is involved, we don't know where we are heading and we have a hard time defining what we want and where we want to go. If Venus is involved, our love life is unusual or confused. As the transit progresses, and certainly by the time it is over, we should have a more refined understanding in the affected areas of lives. What begins as confusion can eventually actually augment our perception and our understanding. Sometimes people experience a burnout of sorts that eventually leads them to take a different path--often a more spiritually rewarding and fulfilling one. Neptune acts to dissolve what it touches.

The following are interpretations of Neptune's transits to planets and points. Note that alternate meanings are indicated by a * and +.

Neptune-Sun Transits

Neptune transits conjunct Sun Your personal sense of reality changes dramatically during the course of this transit. You are more sensitive than ever, and by transit's end you may tap into your devoted nature. There is a strong desire for peace and harmony, and perhaps some sense that you have to make sacrifices for that end. The body itself is sensitive, and you must be cautious with drugs. You may behave in an impractical manner, or you may be vulnerable to deception or betrayal from others. You may undergo a crisis of identity during the initial stages of this transit, and the experiences you have may lead you to a more refined understanding of yourself and the direction in which you want to head. This can be a time of illusions and confusion, or it can be a very inspired time. Recognizing that you need more on a spiritual level can help you handle the transit more constructively.

Look for Leo in your natal chart, as the Sun rules Leo, and this is an area of life that will be directly affected by the transit (in addition to the house where the transit actually takes place).

Neptune transits sextile or trine Sun

At this time, a higher purpose to your life is what you seek, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced this year--you might often find yourself in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. This aspect softens your disposition somewhat, as you tune into your imaginative and artistic side. You may often rely on your instinctual judgment. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to "get away from it all" -- for some peace and quiet now and again -- will be strong. A more sensitive--even mysterious--persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to reserve time alone--away from the hectic pace of life--for reflection, prayer, and meditation. Creativity runs high now.

Neptune transits square or opposition Sun

You are more vulnerable now to influence and illusion. Self-deception may be your biggest "enemy" during this period of your life, and for some, deception from others might be a theme now. The body itself is sensitive, and you must be cautious with drugs. You may behave in an impractical manner, or you may be vulnerable to deception or betrayal from others. You may undergo a crisis of identity during the initial stages of this transit, and the experiences you have may lead you to a more refined understanding of yourself and the direction in which you want to head. This can be a time of illusions and confusion, or it can be a very inspired time. Recognizing that you need more on a spiritual level can help you handle the transit more constructively. Energy levels may be low or up-and-down, and you might be more inclined towards laziness or passivity--just letting things happen without fighting back. You might miss out on opportunities because of this approach to life. Placing faith in something higher than you is one thing, but if taken too far, you might one day regret letting life pass you by.

You are more idealistic than usual, which can cause a few problems if you're not careful. You could be undergoing confusion about what you want from life, where you are headed, and how to go about satisfying your ego. Some of  you might feel that you've lost your edge, or will to fight and take action. Some will be avoiding responsibilities which can negatively impact their lives. There is a reason behind this "identity crisis"--you are learning to let go of ego attachments. Your self-image is being re-worked, and you are becoming more sensitive to a greater, perhaps more spiritual, sense of purpose.

 

Neptune-Moon Transits

Neptune transits to the Moon directly affect the feelings, the public image, and personal popularity. Other people and things affected by Neptune are the mother, important women in the native's life, domestic life, and the home.

Neptune transits conjunct Moon Ambiguity surrounds your emotional and domestic life at this time. You can be emotionally restless, but what it is you actually want is hard to pinpoint. You are more sensitive than ever, and through the course of this transit, your emotional life opens up to incorporate more refined, subtle and understated perceptions. You are "in tune" and pick up far more from your environment than usual. In fact, this can feel very much like emotional "commotion" until you accept that the essential purpose of this transit is to open up your feelings in order for you to ultimately become more compassionate, emotionally aware, and devoted. As the emotional pipelines open up and the emotional walls come down, you can become more vulnerable to deception. Your ability to discriminate is compromised, simply because Neptune's energy lacks definition and boundaries. Some measure of caution is advised. Some unusual or unexpected problems with the mother, important women in your life, and/or your domestic life may occur during the course of the transit. There can be health issues that are psychosomatic in nature or hard to diagnose, although these are generally not serious. Your dreams are likely to become more vivid, and you can be quite susceptible to mood swings.

What does the Moon rule in your chart? Look to the house(s) of your natal chart with Cancer on the cusp for areas of your life where Neptune is acting to refine  Look to planets in Cancer in your chart to see other parts of your personality that Neptune is now infusing with spirituality and sensitivity.

Neptune transits sextile Moon

There is a wonderful sense of peace surrounding you during the course of this transit. You are more open and accepting on an emotional level. This emotional serenity, although subtle, helps you solve problems naturally and intuitively. Your dream life is richer than usual, and your imagination is boundless.

Neptune transits square Moon

You could get the wrong idea, develop false ideals, and let your imagination carry you away to the point that those who support and care for you are neglected or hurt. Walk a careful line when it comes to dreams versus realities. The dreams can be bad.

Your sensitivity and imagination increase tremendously at this time, and you are much more easily influenced by images, the psychic and emotional energy of other people, and the psychic atmosphere around you.

You may find yourself wanting to retreat from the abrasiveness, ugliness, or harsher realities of life, and to seek solace and comfort in nature, spiritual company, meditation, or your own inner world.

Strange moods and feelings that you may never have experienced before come and go during this time period. Part of this is that you are absorbing others' emotions and/or subtle psychic energy. Your sensitivity, receptivity, and empathy is so great right now that you may need to avoid negative, intensely emotional people, or even films or music depicting negative and unhappy imagery.

You are opening psychically at this time and it's very important to do it in a balanced way, and in a positive, supportive, or at least non-threatening atmosphere.

Positive Potentials:

Increased compassion and sympathetic awareness of others. Opening to the mystical, subtle, intangible realms and finding great love and beauty there. Mystical oneness. Connecting with the divine feminine.

Negative Potentials:

It is very easy to lose a sense of proportion and of what is real at this time. A confusion between archetypal or inner reality and physical reality. Over-identifying with spiritual or psychic experiences. A tendency to avoid or evade life through television, fantasy, intoxicants, or even spirituality. Living in a dream world. Tendencies toward addictions and dependencies increase. Self delusion.

Remedies and Suggestions:

Use well-grounded and trusted friends or advisors to get a perspective on your thoughts and experiences now. Live a well-balanced life that includes regular contact with nature, physical exercise, adequate diet and rest, and some kind of regular routine that grounds you in everyday life. Keep a journal of your fantasies, dreams, visions.

Simple psychic protection techniques, such as imagining yourself surrounded by an egg of white or golden light, and filling that space with positive energy, or praying and affirming that you are surrounded by the love and protection of a god, or similar visualizations and prayers could be done daily. -- From our Time Line Forecast Report.

Neptune transits trine Moon

An opportunity to use your imagination to improve your living environment or beautify your surroundings. You may feel very idealistic about your friends, especially someone who is younger or who could use your help. Others give you ideal support.

During this period you have a heightened sensitivity to everything around you - at times an almost mystical sense of oneness or communion. Because of your increased sympathetic awareness of others' unspoken feelings and states of being, you feel more compassion and a greater desire to assist them. You may even find yourself talking to plants and listening to what the birds are telling you.

You may also experience more clearly the powerful affects of music, color, and atmospheres on your mood and sense of well-being. This is a good time to learn about feng shui, the Chinese art of creating harmonious, life-enhancing spaces to live or work in. Intuitive or psychic development courses, meditation, spiritual healing, dream work, and other such teachings or practices would benefit you a great deal at this time also.

Positive Potentials:

Increased sensitivity and openness to subtle and spiritual realities and spiritual guidance. Feeling emotionally and spiritually connected to all creation. Greater forgiveness and understanding in personal relationships. Mystical feelings of closeness with family or others. Heightened imagination opens new worlds and any work involving music, art, imagery, or healing is enhanced.

Negative Potentials:

There are few negatives associated with this cycle, unless you are already overly idealistic, fanciful, and impractical, in which case these tendencies may be somewhat more pronounced than usual.

Remedies and Suggestions:

Begin paying attention to your dreams, fantasies feelings, subtle impressions, inklings, and thoughts that seem unusual or unrelated to your usual way of thinking. Keep a journal to record these in, as they may contain inner guidance and creative seeds for future projects.

Say yes to your "silly" desire to paint, or write poetry, or to use your imagination in creative ways that may be new to you. Translate your empathy and charitable feelings into acts of generosity and kindness. -- From our Time Line Forecast Report.

Neptune transits opposite Moon

*Emotions run very high and deep now. Strange, unusual, even obsessive, feelings grip you now. These feelings are often irrational and out of character, so you are likely to squelch them; they seem childish, exceedingly sentimental, foolish, and out of proportion.

Neptune-Mercury Transits

Neptune transits to Mercury directly affect your curiosity, learning, communication skills, self-promotion, the formulation of ideas, and your ability to rationalize and think logically.

Neptune transits conjunct Mercury Your thinking process becomes more animated, imaginative, and spirited during this transit. However, you can also find yourself mentally lazy and passive, finding it hard to concentrate on mundane matters. Details can be glossed over in favor of the bigger picture, and you can find it hard to stick to systems or schedules. Even people who are normally punctual might find it hard to be on time during this transit. If your work involves communications, advertising, publishing, or languages, you are able to breathe new life into these channels with increased intuition and imagination. Your writing and/or speech may become more poetic. You may encounter mysterious, confused, unusual, or spiritual experiences surrounding Mercury-ruled people and things (such as siblings, neighbors, travel, studies, and so forth) during this time.

What does Mercury rule in your chart? Look to the houses of your natal chart with Gemini and Virgo on the cusp for areas of your life where Neptune is acting to refine.  Look to planets in Gemini and Virgo in your chart to see other parts of your personality that Neptune is now infusing with spirituality and sensitivity.

Neptune transits sextile or trine Mercury

This is an imaginative and inspired period of time when problems are solved intuitively and naturally. If you write or speak for a living, this is an especially beneficial time when you are able to infuse imagination and animation into your communications. You may discover your own psychic or clairvoyant talents during this transit. At the very least, you have your finger on the pulse of what others want to hear and learn. This can mean that you are especially adept at advertising, but it also improves your relationships with others tremendously. The senses are dramatically heightened in general, although attention to detail may be lacking. You may take up, or renew, an interest in the psychic or divining arts. Your speech may slow down, as a reflection of your increased sensitivity to the world around you. You are absorbing things from your environment differently than before. You may be somewhat sensitive to criticism, and you may expect others to be as sincere as you are, so avoid subjecting yourself to situations that are too abrasive or harsh right now, if possible. This is a good time for writing fiction and any undertaking that requires imagination.

Neptune transits square or opposite Mercury

This transit can point to lack of clarity and objectivity. You might make embarrassing errors, neglect important details, or you could carry some delusions now. It may be difficult for others to understand you or you might be communicating in such a way that you are not clear. You are more imaginative now, and easily swayed by the opinions of others. You can be highly creative and inspired under this influence, but you could also be overly sensitive, touchy, or impractical now. You might find it especially challenging to follow routines, to concentrate or focus on monotonous tasks or work, and to focus on academic subjects that require attention to detail or rote learning.

 

Neptune-Venus Transits

Neptune transits to Venus stimulate your desires to share pleasures with significant others and with friends in perhaps unusual or especially sensitive ways. They urge you to find new meaning in your life through leisure activities and/or romance. These transits also affect your urge to acquire new material goods and your finances in general.

Neptune transits conjunct Venus You are more sensitive than ever to emotional stimulus at this time, as your love and pleasure nature is heightened, open, and perhaps vulnerable to influence. You are opening up your heart, which can also mean you are more vulnerable to romantic illusions. You find yourself especially idealistic, romantic, and charming. You are also very easily charmed as well, and you must watch for a tendency to see what you want to see in romantic partners. You may gloss over important details and practical concerns in favor of idealistic visions and perceptions. Your desires are tender and compassionate. You are responsive to all things pleasurable. Finances can suffer under this transit if you have a tendency to live on credit. Try not to borrow from your future, not just with regards to finances. Force yourself to consider practical matters, even though you may resist it, while opening your heart to new possibilities. And, while opening your heart to new possibilities, be sure to use some common sense.

What does Venus rule in your chart? Look to the houses of your natal chart with Taurus and Libra on the cusp for areas of your life where Neptune is acting to dissolve outdated attitudes and refine perceptions. Look to planets in Taurus and Libra in your chart to see other parts of your personality that Neptune is now infusing with sensitivity and spirituality.

Neptune transits sextile Venus

Your values are shifting during the course of this long-term transit. You are learning to share yourself--your sympathy and compassion--with others, and to give of yourself more openly. You are more attuned to the world of beauty, the arts, and the imagination. Compassion, harmony, kindness, and openness are themes now. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. This can be a "magical" time on a romantic and social level. The pleasures of life are experienced fully. You see the very best in people now, and this eases your interactions and takes the pressure off in personal relationships. Romance is highly favored.

Neptune transits square Venus

You are more sensitive than ever to emotional stimulus at this time, as your love and pleasure nature is heightened, open, and perhaps vulnerable to influence. You are opening up your heart, which can also mean you are more vulnerable to romantic illusions, to being swayed, and perhaps misled. You are easily charmed, and you must watch for a tendency to see what you want to see in romantic partners, rather than for who or what they are. You may gloss over important details and practical concerns in favor of idealistic visions and perceptions. Your desires are tender and compassionate. You are responsive to all things pleasurable, possibly to the point of carelessness or laziness when it comes to tending to practical affairs. Finances can suffer under this transit if you have a tendency to live on credit. Try not to borrow from your future, not just with regards to finances, but also when it comes to emotional matters. For example, you might throw yourself into a new romance that others warn you is not realistic. Force yourself to consider practical matters, even though you may resist it, while opening your heart to new possibilities. And, while opening your heart to new possibilities, be sure to use some common sense. Sometimes this transit makes us so vulnerable that we can too easily be taken advantage of or deceived, and this can happen with regards to money and in love, and sometimes both. There can be a lot of sadness as this transit can stimulate a deep yearning for something more than "just ordinary" life. We might attract challenging situations or relationships into our lives because of a deep longing for more drama or glamor in our lives, or for a soulmate connection. This transit can also do a number to your value system. The values you have cherished to date may change quite dramatically now, or you might be tempted to throw them away, or bend your morals, in pursuit of some pleasure or fantasy. As you chase something different, unusual, and otherworldly, you may lack discrimination in your choices of purchases, people, and pleasures.

Neptune transits trine Venus

Your values are shifting during the course of this long-term transit. You are learning to share yourself--your sympathy and compassion--with others, and to give of yourself more openly. You are more attuned to the world of beauty, the arts, and the imagination. Compassion, harmony, kindness, and openness are themes now. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. This can be a "magical" time on a romantic and social level. The pleasures of life are experienced fully. You see the very best in people now, and this eases your interactions and takes the pressure off in personal relationships. Romance is highly favored.

Neptune transits opposition Venus

You are more sensitive than ever to emotional stimulus at this time, as your love and pleasure nature is heightened, open, and perhaps vulnerable to influence. You are opening up your heart, which can also mean you are more vulnerable to romantic illusions, to being swayed, and perhaps to being misled. You are easily charmed, and you must watch for a tendency to see what you want to see in romantic partners, rather than for who or what they are. You may gloss over important details and practical concerns in favor of idealistic visions and perceptions. Your desires are tender and compassionate. You are responsive to all things pleasurable, possibly to the point of carelessness or laziness when it comes to tending to practical affairs. Finances can suffer under this transit if you have a tendency to live on credit. Try not to borrow from your future, not just with regards to finances, but also when it comes to emotional matters. For example, you might throw yourself into a new romance that others warn you is not realistic. Force yourself to consider practical matters, even though you may resist it, while opening your heart to new possibilities. And, while opening your heart to new possibilities, be sure to use some common sense. Sometimes this transit makes us so vulnerable that we can too easily be taken advantage of or deceived, and this can happen with regards to money and in love, and sometimes both. There can be a lot of sadness as this transit can stimulate a deep yearning for something more than "just ordinary" life. We might attract challenging situations or relationships into our lives because of a deep longing for more drama or glamor in our lives, or for a soulmate connection. This transit can also do a number to your value system. The values you have cherished to date may change quite dramatically now, or you might be tempted to throw them away, or bend your morals, in pursuit of some pleasure or fantasy.

With the opposition, you might feel challenged by others on the level of values, love, or finances. You may feel distraught, lonely, or misunderstood by others as you seek something more from your life. You may be overlooking important details when it comes to money, and neglect of material concerns could impact your life now. It's not the best time to lend out money, to sweep material concerns under the carpet, to buy on credit, or to avoid paying attention to bank/tax matters. When it comes to matters of the heart, the things you yearn for may not be mirrored in your experiences or romantic partner. While giving your heart to someone may feel wonderful and it might lead to a wonderful experience, it might also end up being a big learning experience if you are not also considering practical and realistic matters. Self-deception is perhaps your greatest enemy now.

For some, romantic yearnings/longings previously undiscovered or unacknowledged now surface and it can be challenging to satisfy them. You might long for more romance, care, love, and sensitivity in your life, but have a hard time knowing how to get them. If involved in a love relationship, the cruder, less refined, and overly practical or mundane elements of your relationship that you once accepted now become glaring and hard to stomach. Your soul now yearns for a more spiritual or romantic bond. Similarly for singles, your romantic and love needs are evolving. For all, it's a period in which a no-nonsense, overly practical, or overly sexual approach to relationships is now seen as crude and unsatisfying.

 

Neptune-Mars Transits

Neptune transits to Mars affect your drive and desire nature, strength, as well as your ability to assert yourself.

Neptune transits conjunct Mars Although your focus may be compromised and physical energy scattered, there is a strong potential for you to improve your intuition and magnetic powers. You may be in the right place at the right time. The effects of this transit will have much to do with the condition of Mars in your chart. You may, for example, be inclined to take shortcuts or to not know where you are headed exactly, and attract negative influences as a result. You may feel uninspired or lazy due to lack of motivation or a feeling of directionlessness. You may have a hard time drumming up the confidence to move forward. On the other hand, you can be extremely inspired if your personality is extroverted, and/or if you work with Neptune instead of against it. Neptune is urging you to become more refined with regards to your desire nature, anger management, and assertive tendencies. Incorporating more imagination, compassion, and spirituality into these parts of your personality will help you to not only "manage" the transit, but to learn from it.

Neptune transits sextile Mars

*You are more humble, receptive, and less aggressive in your work now. Others are more willing to give you advice and criticism because you are not as rigid and defensive as usual.

Neptune transits square Mars

*Work and important projects undergo difficult changes now. You are likely to feel very frustrated and disheartened at times, but don't completely lose faith and throw everything out the window! This is certainly a time of questioning your values, goals, and directions in life, but try to come to rational decisions rather than act simply out of frustration.

Neptune transits trine Mars

*Your motivations and personal ambitions become more elevated and idealistic now. You are able to see your work in better perspective. Rather than focusing on the strictly personally rewarding aspects of your efforts (for example, your income, amount of vacation time, and other amenities), you are more sensitive to the value of your service as a contribution to society.

Neptune transits opposite Mars

*You approach your work and important projects with an unusual degree of imagination, idealism, and optimism now. Be careful! You are prone to shoot for the stars now, but never get off the ground. You may speculate, gamble, or put all your eggs in one basket.


Neptune-Jupiter Transits

Neptune Transits Conjunct Jupiter
*Restlessness, expansiveness, travel, imagination, and philosophy are key issues now. This is the time to spread your wings and explore imaginative new possibilities.

Neptune Transits Sextile Jupiter
*You are in a generous and tolerant mood during this time period. You easily forgive others for their faults and are ready to overlook foibles in others' personalities. Your tolerant, accepting attitude makes relationships with others pleasant and positive.

Neptune Transits Square Jupiter
*Extreme restlessness and discontent with the limitations of your current situation incline you to speculate and gamble on ways to quickly change your life. There is a strong tendency to exaggerate and put on a front to impress others and gain the advancement that you seek.

Neptune Transits Trine Jupiter
*Your imagination is stirred, you feel inspired, restless, and ready for bigger and better things in your life. You want to break out of your usual routine and explore more imaginative and creative options.

Neptune Transits Opposition Jupiter
*Speculation, optimism, restlessness, and perhaps downright foolhardiness are key issues now. Everyday life seems drab and dreary to you now, and you explore bigger, more exciting, more exotic alternatives. This is an excellent time to travel or go on vacation.
 

Neptune-Saturn Transits

Neptune Transits Conjunct Saturn
+Problems could lose some of their definition and appear less difficult now. You might have a sense of living in a dream world or of being awake in your own dream. Everything seems less solid and definite. The spirit world seems real and possible.

Neptune Transits Sextile Saturn
+The problems and responsibilities of life may be seen in a new light, as part of a larger drama you are living (almost like a dream). You are able to handle difficulties more easily, seeing them as part of a larger story.

Neptune Transits Square Saturn
+There could be a tendency to view your accomplishments as having almost no substance during this time. A false set of ideals may mislead you and cause you to neglect your responsibilities and get lost in what will amount to a bunch of nothing.

Neptune Transits Trine Saturn
+The problems and responsibilities of life may be seen in a new light, as part of a larger drama you are living (almost like a dream). You are able to handle difficulties more easily, seeing them as part of a larger story.

Neptune Transits Opposition Saturn
+Misguided idealism and false spirituality could find you ignoring responsibilities in favor of a lot of high-sounding talk. You might find yourself losing your resolve or determination to take care of business and get things accomplished.

 

Neptune-Ascendant Transits

Neptune Transits Conjunct Ascendant
*You are more concerned with bringing high ideals and noble purposes into your life now than you are with gaining personal recognition or personal gain. You are more tolerant of others and less pushy. In fact, you are very impressionable at times and you tend to idolize others who exhibit the kinds of qualities that you aspire to.

Neptune Transits Sextile Ascendant
*You encounter people now who are very considerate, understanding and nonjudgmental. You are also likely to form relationships with people based on a deep level of mutual appreciation and understanding for each other. You are in touch with your more sensitive, spiritual qualities, and you are able to express a greater level of sensitivity and greater empathy than usual.

Neptune Transits Square Ascendant
*Some adjustments in the way you express yourself and treat others are required now. Others may complain that you are not sincere with them, you are too domineering or passive, or unfair in some respect. You may also find yourself feeling the need to approach others about the way they express themselves and treat others.

Neptune Transits Trine Ascendant
*You encounter people now who are very considerate, understanding and nonjudgmental. You are also likely to form relationships with people based on a deep level of mutual appreciation and understanding for each other. You are in touch with your more sensitive, spiritual qualities, and you are able to express a greater level of sensitivity and greater empathy than usual.

Neptune Transits Opposition Ascendant
*Be very careful and circumspect about any new relationship that forms now. You are likely to form new relationships of both a personal and business nature that you have high hopes for, but you are likely to eventually become disappointed by these relationships. You tend to project your ideals and fantasies on others now, and not really see them objectively and clearly.


 

Neptune-Midheaven Transits

Neptune Transits Conjunct Midheaven
*Major changes in your career occur at this time. You are in a transition phase where you are more concerned with really bringing your ideals and dreams down to earth and implementing them in your life. You are likely to feel that your current employment involves too many compromises.

Neptune Transits Sextile Midheaven
*A spirit of cooperation and shared ideals imbues your career pursuits with a satisfying, inspiring quality now. Supervisors, employers, employees, and co-workers show that they will extend themselves and make sacrifices "when the chips are down". Consequently, your work and career gain a greater dimension of meaningfulness and importance to you.

Neptune Transits Square Midheaven
*Changing attitudes and doubts about your career and overall situation in life can eat away at you now. This problem is particularly strong if you have not been honest with yourself, kidding yourself about where your current life is leading you, or ignoring your dreams and ideals because you feel they are unrealistic.

Neptune Transits Trine Midheaven
*Your approach to your work and career is highly imaginative at this time, and you come up with interesting, creative ideas. Your intuition is excellent and the imaginative changes that you introduce now are likely to work very nicely.

Neptune Transits Opposition Midheaven
*A shift in moods and attitudes occurs at this time that will continue to affect you deeply for many years to come. You are emotionally and psychically very sensitive now, but often it is difficult for you to clearly express what you are feeling.


A general description of transiting Neptune - excerpt from the Sky Log report:

"The planet Neptune is presently tinting and shading your biography, adding its dreamlike quality to the existential stew. Close your eyes; there's a world in there. That's Neptune, the planet of consciousness itself. Now open your eyes. There's a world out there too, and it's hard to ignore it. In fact, the outer world has become so pressing in its demands that you've partly lost contact with the inner one. But Neptune, transiting through sensitive territories for you now, is fixing that. Your inner world is so full it's brimming over, overflowing its banks into your daily life. If you resist the process, you'll find a host of Neptune problems plaguing you: losing the car keys, forgetting to pay the electric bill, having the attention span of a three-year-old on a sugar jag. But there's an alternative: trust the process. Slow down. Meditate. Let the images come. Mould opinions. Breathe in, breathe out. Why? Because your unconscious mind has a message for you. It has to do with the possibility of happiness for you over the next few years, about how old sources of joy are drying up and -- critically -- about new ones you must learn to recognize. How do you receive the message? You stop resisting. You simply let it in. That's Neptune in the broad sense."
