Neptune in Libra

"The Baby Boomers"

Neptune, known as a "generational planet", spends about 14 years in each zodiac sign, influencing each generation with its characteristic themes.

In astrology, Neptune symbolizes spirituality, idealism, dreams, illusions, and the subconscious. It also represents escapism, mind-altering substances, lack of boundaries, deception, and confusion.

It prompts us to go beyond the material world, tapping into our intuition and imagination. Neptune brings creativity, compassion, idealism, and mysticism, urging us towards higher truths and emotional depths. However, it can also create illusions and blur the line between reality and fantasy.

Libra is an intellectual Air sign, and signifies diplomacy, balance, peace, harmony, and relationships, in general. Governed by Venus, Libra values fairness, justice, and cooperation.

Libra energy is intellectual and seeks balance in all aspects of life and is especially skilled at establishing harmony. Those with Libra placements tend to be cerebral, appreciate art, beauty, and social grace, but their quest for peace can sometimes lead to indecisiveness and self-neglect.

When dream-weaving, idealistic Neptune is placed in intellectual and peace-loving Libra, you get a generation that idealizes peace and harmony, that orchestrates a balance between the ethereal and the tangible, the illusion and the real, the self and the other.

Your position of Neptune by sign is shared with other people in the same generation due to Neptune’s slow movement through the heavens – spending roughly 14 years through each sign. It becomes more personal when aspecting one of your personal planets or luminaries, such as the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars.

The energies of those aspects (and their House placements) are those we use to envision our idea of an ideal world.  Transits to your Neptune, especially from the outer planets, greatly affect its expression as well.
