Where is NEPTUNE in your natal chart?

Neptune was unknown to ancient astrologers, but after its discovery in 1846, astrologers incorporated the myths of the Hellenic ocean gods to understand the influence Neptune’s placement could have on our chart. Neptune and Poseidon master the ever-expansive ocean, riding the waves and plunging into the depths of the never-ending sea.

The ocean represents our emotional connections to Other, and the ways in which we integrate Other into Self. We connect our identities to the outer world through story. Neptune is concerned with how we understand the stories that create our reality. Our fantasies, artistic vision, and spiritual inspiration are all influenced by this watery giant.

Because Neptune’s orbit is so long, his individual sign is shared among people born within a 14-year time period. We can cover that when we get to generational astrology.

The house placement of Neptune in your natal chart informs your personal connection to Neptunian energy. Read below to see how fantasy, art, and story play out in your life.

 

NEPTUNE IN THE HOUSES

  • House 1: You experience life through the filters of art, story, and fantasy. You experience psychic vibes when you are creating something new. With your refined taste and somewhat mysterious persona, you have the ability to enchant whoever you meet.

    *

  • House 2: Finding stability and managing resources may be difficult with this placement. This is because your personal values are heavily based on personal myth. Building new personal myths (less “starving artist,” more “skilled creator”) can lead this Neptune placement to a better relationship with finances and general adulting.

    *

  • House 3: You understand the power of communicating through story and how to compel people with your words. There have probably been more than a few times you’ve used this skill to twist situations to your own advantage. Shockingly, the more you engage in manipulation and lies, the more people start to disbelieve you on principle. Use the storytelling for smashing the patriarchy instead.

    *

  • House 4: Emotional experiences create the story of your life. This placement is sensitive to the emotions of others, often to the point of seeming psychic! Sometimes this skill encourages the creation of a story where none would have existed if everyone had taken a 5-minute breather, rather than hashing through all feelings in rigorous detail. When emotions are high, use the energy to create instead of converse.

    *

  • House 5: Neptune in House 5 injects the element of myth into self-expression. Your ability to make your heart clearly known through your words inspires people to gravitate toward your leadership. A captivating and dramatic personal style builds a loyal audience in your life.

    *

  • House 6: In House 6, Neptune can lead to anxieties about your health and work life. Talking to another person can help this Neptune placement to disentangle their fears from their true experiences. When these people feel healed, they are powerful healers of others.

    *

  • House 7: Coming into partnership with others helps this placement understand their own self. An idealization of partners can lead to unwise decision-making. Once this placement learns to become as invested in their own story as they are in the stories of others, they feel more comfortable in the world.

    *

  • House 8: In the house of sex and death, Neptune is powerful indeed. This Neptune placement tunes you into the deeper stories that undercurrent your surroundings. People enjoy telling stories about you; while this could manifest as cattiness, it is just as easily a sign of immense personal influence among your peers.

    *

  • House 9: When you have Neptune in House 9, you have a rich imagination that colors your approach to life. You may feel drawn to the teachings and systems of a certain spiritual idea. There is a tendency with this placement to live in fantasy and ignore the other aspects of our world. Counterbalance this by devoting a specific time for daydreaming. This will expand your imagination on your terms.

    *

  • House 10: Your reputation is large, valuable, and well-manicured. Throughout all your projects and your eventual career, you lead with your vision. Neptune in House 10 is a bit more solid than the typical Neptune, removing his usual confused wooziness and amplifying his ability to turn stories into something useful.

    *

  • House 11: You have high hopes and daydream about them constantly. When left in isolation from others, Neptune in 11 can forget to actually do anything, preferring to live in the safety of fantasy. When people with this placement become part of a group that links their hopes for themselves and the world to group action, they flourish.

    *

  • House 12: Neptune finds his home in the ocean of House 12, which represents our connection to every other thing in the universe. People with this placement are comfortable with spirituality and use their sense of connection to the world to accomplish their goals. This placement finds a lot of different ways to express their ideas; whatever it takes to get the message out.
