Neptune Astrology and What it's About...

In the realm of Planets, Neptune astrology is about mysticism, uncertainty, delusion, deceit, and evasion.

Neptune was discovered in 1846; even so we have always felt its influence.

Whenever a planet is identified, astrologers note global events and the sign of the times to distinguish the traits of that planet.

Neptune was detected during the historical period of romance, a social movement that was a counterbalance to the Age of Reason or the Enlightenment, with its rigorous accent on a system of logic and formulas of science.

Neptune takes 146 yrs. to journey through the zodiac. Neptune’s full transit or passage through the twelve zodiac signs was completed in 2011 then began again.

Neptune is one of the modernistic Planets; the other two are Pluto and Uranus.

These 3 Planets are not known to be personal to your life, but they do have some influence. However, you'll share the big picture interpretations with your own generation.

These Planets spend a good amount of time in each astrology sign. Uranus for 7 years, Neptune for 14 years, and Pluto for between 13 -32 years in one sign.

These Planets journey the furthest from the sun and they move slow.

Alienation and Apathy.

A desiring of drugs and alcohol (Wanting to be buzzed or drunk to dull the pain.)
