Basic Stuff About Neptune

by Rebecca Brents



The higher expression of Venus

* Neptune is the 8th planet from the Sun in our Solar System. Theoretically, it orbits between Uranus and Pluto, but Pluto's erratic orbit sometimes carries him inside the orbit of Neptune.

* Astrologers note many characteristics of Neptune energy that show it to be a higher expression of numerous interests commonly ruled by Venus -- Venus' interests translated onto a spiritual plane rather than this material one.

* Neptune takes about 168 years to complete its circle through the Zodiac. It stays in each sign about 14 years and spends much of its time in retrograde.

It's complicated

* Neptune rules Pisces, the 12th sign of the Natural Zodiac. It is associated with the 12th House of the horoscope -- the house that deals with mystical interests, artistic inspiration, the need for seclusion, involvement with dreams, fantasy and imagination.

* Neptune's broad and varied dominion makes it the most complex of the planets. It is directly involved with the vast reservoirs of the subconscious mind, alternate planes of reality and different levels of consciousness beyond the one we use in everyday life. This includes things like hypnosis, trance, ecstatic states and hysteria.

* In the physical body, Neptune rules the feet.

* Neptune represents basically feminine energy -- introverted, receptive, responsive yin energy. Even in forceful, masculine signs it retains this basic feminine essence. The other strongly feminine elements in your horoscope are the Moon and Venus.

Not quite of this world

* Neptune exhibits a very selfless energy, especially when compared to the ego-centered nature of the Sun and the possessiveness of Venus. The inclusiveness of Neptune makes it extremely idealistic and spiritual

* There's a refinement associated with the dealings of Neptune. Not the trial-by-fire that goes with Pluto's ruthless contacts, but a feeling of having been in touch with something gentle, noble and uplifting -- and experience that inspires you to be a better person by following its example.

* Neptune was named for the mythological god of the sea, and as such, it rules water, mist, vapor and all kinds of liquids.
