Neptune in Aries:

Passionately Chasing Dreams

Neptune, the planet of idealism, artistic imagination, and compassion, holds a special place in astrology. If you have an active imagination, an interest in spiritual matters, or a compassionate nature, Neptune might be prominent in your birth chart. 

Neptune hasn't been in Aries since the mid-1800s - no one alive today has Neptune in Aries in their birth chart.  Between 2025 and 2039, Neptune will be in Aries, meaning that people born during this time period will have this placement in their birth chart.

Neptune: The Ruler of Pisces

Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, the zodiac sign known for its sensitivity, compassion, and spiritual nature. As the planet of inspiration and dreams, Neptune represents the realm of the unconscious mind and the spiritual world. It governs altered states of consciousness, psychic receptivity, and the substances that induce them.

Neptune vs. Venus

Neptune is considered the higher octave of Venus.  While Venus represents our connection to material beauty and pleasures, Neptune represents our connection to the beauty and harmony of the spiritual realm. Venus governs our values, relationships, and earthly desires, but Neptune takes these concepts to a higher level. It guides us towards what feeds us spiritually and teaches us compassion.

Neptune's Influence

Neptune symbolizes the urge to dissolve the boundaries of our ego and lose ourselves in other realms of being. It dissolves life's patterns to synthesize and teach new meanings in the quest for universal wisdom and divine love. Neptune governs the subconscious world, intuition, hidden memories, and fantasies. It represents what we consider to be perfection, our unselfish ideals, and our search for the impossible dream.

Neptune's Negative Side

While Neptune has positive aspects, it also has a negative side. It can make us deceive ourselves or be deceived by others, leading to confusion, deception, fraud, and betrayal. It can also cause us to misunderstand or be misunderstood.  Your Cosmodyne score for Neptune can help you determine if your more apt to be deceived by others (or even yourself).

Neptune in Aries (2025-2039)

Neptune will ingress to Aries between March 2025 and March 2039. Aries is a fire sign associated with freedom, passion, assertiveness, and individuality, while Neptune is a planet associated with spiritual quest, idealism, and artistic imagination.

When Neptune moves into Aries, it will bring a new sense of adventure to all, inspiring everyone to chase their dreams and ideals with a vigor not seen in the collective since the mid-1800's. People born with this placement in their chart will tend to have an active fantasy life and may feel deeply connected to the suffering of others. They may have a strong interest in psychic or spiritual matters and may be called naïve or youthful for their age.

Neptune in Aries can be a powerful force for good, inspiring us to take action on our dreams and create positive change in the world. However, it can also lead to impulsiveness and a lack of practicality. It will be important for us to balance our idealism with a grounded sense of reality to avoid getting lost in a fantasy world (or the metaverse).

*Look at your Cosmodyne scores for your Neptune's Power and Harmony for more insight.

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.
