Neptune At A Glance

Distance from Sun 4.5 billion km (2.8 billion miles) Orbit around Sun 164.79 Earth years Rotation on Axis 14 hours Satellites Triton, Nereid, and others Keywords Confusion, cloudiness Rules Pisces with lovers parted and not knowing when or where they would meet again. All this was emphasizing Neptune confusion and the total lack of Libran togetherness. During this time the flower-power generation of the 1970s was born.

Here Libran principles and characteristics are merged with the sensitivity of Neptune, but the illusion of love is unrealistic, and it will be emphasized when the Venus signs, Taurus and Libra or Pisces, are prominent in this generation's charts. From Libra the planet adds kindness, generosity, and willingness to make sacrifices for loved ones. However, if these signs are not prominent by Sun, Moon, or Ascendant, this generation influence will not be very noticeable.

neptune in scorpio

The difference between the softness of the Neptune-in-Libra generation and the punk rock generation of the Neptune-in-Scorpio (1956-7 to 1970-1) people is unmistakable. The latter have a hard and aggressive image: their drug scene was not the peaceful drifting of Neptune in Libra, but something far more intense and often extremely dangerous.

The flower-power generation grew up under the influence of Neptune in Libra.

As Scorpio is an intensively emotional sign, Neptune's journey through it increases this powerful force, especially if Scorpio is Sun, Moon, or Ascendant. But sometimes, even with the strength of Scorpio giving tremendous back-up, there is uncertainty and confusion present. While this is a generation influence, many individuals born during this period tend to lack the usually disciplined attitude of this powerful sign.

neptune in sagittarius

Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, used to be the ruler of Pisces (now ruled by Neptune), and that traditional ruling seems to have an effect here. The 1970-1 to 1984-5 generation is more idealistic and hopeful, and will do much to save the Earth's resources. Those who get the best out of Neptune are idealistic and express hope, even if they have to cope with cynicism and bureaucracy.

Neptune in Sagittarius is a lovely influence for those who have this sign or Pisces prominent by Sun, Moon, or Ascendant. Many have a special love and respect for animals, and this is one reason for increased vegetarianism; but when the influence works negatively, there is a near gluttony for junk food, resulting in increasingly dangerous obesity.

neptune in capricorn

At the time of writing, many of the Neptune-in-Capricorn people (1984-98) are still very young, and it must be hoped that time will have not run out for saving the Earth's resources. This generation, if any, has what it takes to actually do something about this, and hopefully the negative escapism of the drug scene will begin to diminish.

The flower-power generation grew up under the influence of Neptune in Libra.

-If the rather dreamy idealism and creativity of Neptune can be channelled and given form, so that despite cloudiness and confusion there are inspired but constructive results, then there is hope. Here is a greater sense of direction and caution, not only for those who have Capricorn as Sun, Moon, or Ascendant, but more generally. Many will be less inclined to take the easy way out of difficult situations and will see the stupidity of taking drugs.

neptune in aquarius

Currently active, Neptune entered Aquarius in 1998 and will remain there until 2010. At the time of writing, only children under 10 have this interesting generation influence. The general effects have barely started, but there are distinct characteristics. Here is Aquarian idealism and humanitarianism heightened by Neptunian sensitivity and emotion. Those with an Aquarius Sun, Moon, or Ascendant will have considerably increased emotions which will be expressed as suggested above. We can expect a certain amount of quirkiness in their self-expression, but there is a huge amount of originality which will be expressed through scientific development. The influence

will surely assist those in medical research - the relief of suffering is very Neptunian and will complement the humanitarian side of Aquarius.

As we see things at present, this area is moving fast and will continue to do so - especially as these young people reach maturity and take their places in their various professions. The arts and medicine will dominate, while other branches of science, space travel, and knowledge of the universe will receive considerable attention too.

neptune in pisces

Following its current position in Aquarius, Neptune is due to be active in Pisces from 2011 to 2025. It was way back in the 1860s that Neptune last visited Pisces, and while we could study its influences from that time, is it worth doing so? The world is a different place, and becoming increasingly so in the 21st century. One thinks of that age of regular churchgoing and sexual repression - but also incredible progress in engineering and grand Victorian Gothic architecture; of the horrors of the American Civil War, but the end of slavery... How will these influences be reborn, if at all?

Victorian Gothic was one of the defining architectural styles the last time Neptune was in Pisces.
