Neptune as a Generational Planet

Astrologically, some planets move quickly through the zodiac, influencing individuals on a day-to-day basis, while others move slowly, casting their influence over entire generations. Neptune is one such generational planet, taking approximately 14 years to traverse a single zodiac sign. This slow transit means that everyone born within that 14-year period will have Neptune in the same zodiac sign, giving that generation a shared undercurrent of energy and influence that shapes their collective consciousness.

While individual experiences will vary based on personal natal charts, this generational energy becomes evident when we observe broader societal trends, shifts in values, and significant historical events that occur during such transits. When Neptune was in Leo, it imprinted its dreamy, idealistic, and spiritual energy onto Leo's inherent qualities of self-expression, creativity, and pride. The result? A generation marked by heightened artistic flair, a drive for recognition, and the dramatic interplay between dreams and reality.
