Planet Neptune

The illusionist

Neptune

Mostly viewed as the Roman god of the sea, Neptune keeps its watery connection in Astrology: this planet stands for endless personal possibilities, dreams and spirituality, best represented by the vast ocean.

With its transcendent energy, Neptune helps us see the bigger picture, and has both a positive and negative influence over us. It helps us see the best case scenarios, even if they’re not apparent at first. Even further, Neptune rules over our unconscious, reminding us that dreams bear important messages.

Neptune also embodies an air of magic, reminding us to tap into the beautiful parts of our inner selves. Neptune represents the opposite of logic, as it rules intuition and instinct.

But sometimes, Neptune goes a little too far and may invite us to spend too much time in this alternate reality. For some, this means living in a dream world in order to escape the reality of everyday life. That’s because Neptune is also the planet of denial! At its most extreme, Neptune can oversee substance abuse. At the same time, it can oversee just the opposite in healthy escapism, like meditation.
