Neptune in the Complete Horoscope
The Source to Fantasy and Dreams in Classical Astrology
The dreamer with far-reaching fantasy,
imagination unfettered by reality,
to perceive also what is not there.
Because of its dreamlike nature, Neptune is the only planet that blooms in the 12th House, which is the House of what is not lived out, what we have to sacrifice in order for the rest of our characteristics and talents to manifest themselves. What is not acted out is kept inside, and that's the natural realm of Neptune.
Neptune in the ZodiacHere are short descriptions of how each Zodiac sign influences Neptune, your fantasy and dreams, when that's where it is in your natal chart.
Taurus brings an imagination limited to the well-known, and concrete dreams.
Gemini brings an entertaining fantasy, and dreams that jump from one thing to the next.
Cancer brings vivid and engaging dreams, and an imagination favoring the emotional.
Leo brings a fantasy quite self-occupied, and dreams of personal satisfaction.
Virgo brings a fantasy that usually stays on the ground, inside what's concrete and makes sense.
Libra brings a fantasy that deals with the abstract, and dreams that focus on good and bad.
Scorpio brings a weird imagination, and a rich fantasy favoring the unthinkable.
Sagittarius brings glimpses of a distant future and of far-away places, and dreams escaping interpretation.
Capricorn brings dreams and visions of a concrete nature, many of them possible and rewarding to realize.
Aquarius brings contemplations to get lost in, and transcending meditation, not to mention fascinating dreams.
Pisces brings blossoming fantasy and imagination.
KeywordsHere are the twelve Zodiac signs, and keywords for the character they give to Neptune, i.e. your fantasy and dreams:
RulerNeptune rules over Pisces, the sign of belief, which means that it tends to be the most obvious and enforced in this sign. It exalts in Scorpio, the sign of the subconscious. It fits the best in water signs, which stand for emotions. It is significantly less stimulated in earth signs, and to a lesser extent in fire signs. It is at its least in Taurus.
Planet ageEach of the heavenly bodies represents a period in your life of about seven years. In the case of Neptune it is the period of retirement, when we have no more obligations and can sink into memories and dreams.
That would be approximately from your mid 60's and on to the last years of your life. It is a time when you're allowed to be absorbed by introspection.
