NEPTUNE – The Planetary Symbol of Inspiration

(Imagination, Compassion, Transcendence, Unity)

I travel on from day to day, knowing how I feel
Imagining I experience you, believing I am real
What I sense I am becoming is all I want to be
The ‘I’ that is in you and the ‘you’ that is in me

An individual does not perceive its relationship to the whole of life through mind alone. There is the need as well to increase one’s sensitivity until a unity beyond mind and matter is recognized-a unity through which each separate identity is intimately joined. Through Neptune, the love energy of Venus is exquisitely intensified. Romantic love is raised to a higher vibration and becomes unconditional. The love that the principle of Neptune inspires is a love without reservation-a love that goes beyond pride, vanity and ego gratification. The consciousness of Neptune inspires all the art and beauty that exists, rescuing life from the doldrums and from a sense of futility. We can use Neptune’s subtle energy as a calming force to get through some of the saddest times in our life. Neptune is a symbol of poignant emotion. It teaches us to develop empathy for the pains that we see others suffering. When we open up to the energy of Neptune, we are inspired to move into a new role as an artist and compassionate healer.

Neptune is in my first house (A thousand faces)
I have a chameleon-like ability to project anything I want. Even when I do not see a situation the way anyone else does, I can make it look like I am in agreement. I have an amazing gift for blending in with others, yet more often I am removed from any reality except my own. My abilities can best be put to use in an artistic capacity. I have great compassion as well.

Neptune is in my second house (Treasure hunt)

I have a dreamy attitude towards the practical aspects of existence. I want to cultivate spiritual values rather than cling to material attachments. Still, I love beauty in all forms. Sometimes I trust that I will have whatever I need by some magical twist of fate; at other times, I worry I will be destitute.

Neptune is in my third house
(Wishful thinking)
I perceive subtle dimensions of reality that help me to gain rare insight into every situation. I do not quite give up on obtaining the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. In putting so much energy into believing in the unbelievable, I surprise both myself and others by seeing some of my beliefs become increasingly evident.

Neptune is in my fourth house (Lit up from the inside)
I open up to extra-dimensional energies. Through this process, I begin to experience my connection to the whole of life and clearly understand what the universe is asking of me. This is how I get in touch with a truth that everyone will learn some day-there is no one out there to blame for my life emanates from me and me alone.

Neptune is in my fifth house (The incurable romantic)
There is an artist in me longing to transmute my spiritual vision into creative expressions of rare beauty. I have the planet of inspiration in the house of self-expression. This identifies me as someone who courts the muse and develops magical talents. I may be misunderstood, as I am seldom what I seem. My love is not of this world.

Neptune is in my sixth house (Work like you don’t need the money)
I have the planetary energy of inspiration in the house of perspiration to teach me about serving for the sake of service rather than for purely personal gain. I want to be helpful to people and do work that offers spiritual rewards. My health will suffer if my daily routine is drudgery that leaves me feeling apathetic. My daily routine needs more magic.

Neptune is in my seventh house (Are you the one?)
I tend to be gullible in relationship and easily duped. I could avoid deception, however, I accept other people in my heart without reservation. I tend to lose my sense of separateness in the presence of each person I meet. What I seek is a partner who understands me and truly cares. I would love them unconditionally.

Neptune is in my eighth house
(Look for the silver lining)
I may cast the illusion of having reached a transformational state of enlightenment, when I actually feel out of touch with what is going on around me. I place partners on pedestals, embracing the hope that this time the real thing has arrived in my life. It is never quite the real thing though, merely a dream that I could half believe for a little while. Still, the light of day is never far from me.

Neptune is in my ninth house (Next stop, Planet X)
My imagination soars as the planet of dreams is given the widest field in which to explore its possibilities. I long to discover a higher purpose for my life and my search may take me to the far corners of the universe. In between, I will probably get to visit some magical spots right here on Planet Earth. I want to make sure that my fervent belief in my vision as the best of all possible worlds does not border on fanatical idealism.

Neptune is in my tenth house
(The illusionist)
I am amazing in being able to embody the perfect image of my professional role. I create an appearance of triumph, although it may be far from the existing reality. It is not just enough for me to have material power-I want spiritual power. I can have it if compassionate service and not personal glory becomes my criterion for success.

Neptune is in my eleventh house (Hope springs eternal)
I seek to come into alignment with people who share my dreams of creating something beautiful. It need not be practical as much as it fulfills my yearning and theirs for an endeavor beyond the commonplace. I have an idealistic vision and am subject to feelings of disappointment with others. Still, I hope I never give up on friends, as long as they do not give up on me.

Neptune is in my twelfth house
(Fantasy Island)
I either take the path of devotion and quiet contemplation or attempt to escape from reality all together. Other worlds beckon my spirit to take flight and transcend ordinary living. My sensitivity is soothed by the music of the spheres. I can make constructive use of my flight into fantasy and create beautiful works of art or I can ascend to the highlands of spirit, thus giving the people who stay on the ground something that inspires them.
