When Neptune and another Inner Self join forces
Conjunctions involving Neptune merge that planet's symbolism of selflessness, idealism, spirituality, intuitive wisdom and profound creativity with whatever the other planet symbolizes. These two are then joined together as a unit.
They function as a team or a partnership -- or like a pair of Siamese twins. Whatever affects one necessarily affects the other, and whatever one does, inevitably involves the other. You no longer look at or consider them separately.
Traditional astrology taught that Neptune was considered a "malefic" -- its energy more negative and problematic than positive. Conjunctions -- any aspects really -- were limiting and unfortunate. However, I believe that all conjunctions are beneficial.
They add power, dimension, and complexity to both partners in the planetary blend. They truly make life and the personality of the soul who owns one of them interesting. His planetary energy no longer operates in isolation. It doesn't stand alone. It has allies which bring more depth and complexity to their expression and their work ... and those results can have more impact -- on the person and in the world than energies that are on their own.
When well-aspected, Neptune in any sign is selfless, idealistic, spiritual, healing and connected to unseen -- even Divine -- sources. When it forms a conjunction with another planet, that planet gains these qualities from the association ... and lends its own character and strengths to the fusion of energy.
