Neptune in the Signs
Aries | Taurus |Gemini |Cancer |Leo |Virgo |Libra |
Scorpio |Sagittarius |Capricorn |Aquarius |Pisces
NEPTUNE IN ARIES - increases the activity of the imagination. Neptune stays in a sign for about 14 years and therefore affects a whole generation at a time. Some astrologers tend to minimize the sign position of the outer three planets because of this. I disagree. Sign position is ALWAYS important. Neptune in Aries causes the imagination to be excitable, sometimes excessively. Not bad if Neptune has some moderating influences.
NEPTUNE IN TAURUS- When the planet of imagination is in a material sign, the dreams, fantasies, and ideals of that generation will tend to be about material things. Since a whole generation is born with each placement of Neptune (it stays about 14 years in each sign) we can get an age that concentrates on materialism.
NEPTUNE IN GEMINI- would have a tendency to verbalize whatever it imagines. The mind would not stick with one fantasy, but would tend to flit from one to another.
NEPTUNE IN CANCER- The generation born just before World War I had this one. The fantasies will tend to be more emotional in nature and center around things connected with the sign of Cancer, such as domestic matters and homeland.
NEPTUNE IN LEO- Leo is an aggressive, idealistic sign. Neptune is dreams and imagination. This placement of Neptune produces a generation that can fight for ideals, literally. Neptune was in Leo the last time during the "Roaring" Twenties. The previous time was a few years before the American Revolution. Many of those born with this Neptune placement fought in the War of Independence and World War II. Remember, Neptune stays in a sign for about 14 years, so it influences an entire generation.
NEPTUNE IN VIRGO- happened last time during the Great Depression. The dream of that Age was just to get a job and get ahead. People born with this Neptune placement either focus their intuitions on the material world or are totally foggy in dealing with reality.
NEPTUNE IN LIBRA- This last happened from 1943 to 1956. That was the time of the "Man in the Gray Flannel Suit", the conformist, the company man. After the Great Depression and World War II, everyone wanted to get back to "normalcy". The illusion of that age was to think that if you don’t rock the boat, everything will be allright. For people born with this placement, there is a love of fairness and justice. Ironically, this generation did rock the boat during the riots and demonstrations of the 1960’s. Most of them were also born with Pluto in Leo, which added fuel to the fire.
NEPTUNE IN SCORPIO- The illusion of this age (1956 to 1971) was that people could be reborn (Scorpio) through drugs (Neptune). There was also great concern about pollution, with very little action taken. Neptune changes minds. Action comes later. In this case, Uranus and Pluto followed Neptune into Scorpio and that’s when we got environmental protection laws.
NEPTUNE IN SAGITTARIUS- Uranus acts. Neptune dreams. Uranus seems to function like a radar that can see through fog. Neptune is the fog. Sagittarius is philosophy. Neptune here can increase the chance that the principles we hold dear are nothing more than illusions. Of course, people always have to be careful of this no matter what their horoscope. But Neptune placed here will tend to magnify this tendency. As mentioned above, Karl Marx had Uranus here, which made him want to put his philosophy into action. He also had Neptune in Sagittarius, less than six degrees away. His philosophy was nothing more than an illusion, and millions died as a result.
NEPTUNE IN CAPRICORN- just happened from 1984 to 1998. It tends to give a very practical imagination focused on this world that we see before us. Louis Pasteur had this one, as did Herbert Spencer. Lewis Carroll would seem to be an exception. After all, "Alice in Wonderland" is a fantasy. But when you look at it closely, you will notice that all the jokes are based on errors in logic. Even here, Capricorn always has a serious purpose. He was trying to teach!
NEPTUNE IN AQUARIUS- can make the imagination a little bizarre, but the idealism, the dream of this generation, is for the Aquarian ideals of freedom and independence. Many of the generation that fought the Civil War had this placement. Neptune is back in Aquarius right now. Perhaps government efforts to control the Internet will run into a few problems.
