Have a little faith in Neptune! In astrology, Neptune is the ruler of intuition, enchantment, glamour, soulful artistry, and the deep healing that begins when we ask ourselves, “Is there a possibility of another way?”
Like Pluto and Uranus, Neptune is one of the outer planets, meaning it’s slower-moving and affects the bigger-picture themes of our lives than the inner planets, like Mercury and Venus, which change signs more frequently and have a bigger effect on our day-to-day realities. Neptune spends approximately 14 years in each sign (with occasional shorter dips into neighboring signs when it’s retrograde) and takes 160-ish years to move through the whole zodiac. Back in 2012, Neptune moved into Pisces and it will stay there until 2026. This is first time it’s been in Pisces since 1862!
The sign Neptune was in when you were born shines a shimmer on how you connect with your highest level of both creativity and divinity, as well as your spiritual practices. And the sign Neptune is in right now affects your creativity and spirituality in the moment. Think of yourself as a lamp, while Neptune is the light. Your Neptune sign helps you understand how the light heals with both self-compassion and forgiveness towards others.
