“I’m only honest when it rains
If I time it right, the thunder breaks
When I open my mouth”
I love this one
🌿Venus - Neptune Aspects 🌹⛲️
(I got excited and wrote a bit more than I was expected, so prepare for a long post, whoops!)
🌿Amazing at art, music and creative mediums
🌿Romantically idealistic 💙
⛲️However there’s this underlying feeling of a deeper madness with them
🌿They fall in love hard, and can get this feeling of insatiable longing (being in love can feel like being drunk to them in a way, it can be addicting)
⛲️Can have heightened senses (the sense will depend on the sign and rest of chart)
🌿 they don’t always fall in love with the person, but often times with their idealized view of a person
⛲️For this reason, they might opt to fall in love with fictional characters or people that aren’t real
🌿They might have trouble seeing people for who they really are. They want the perfect person and can side step the negative traits of people to find that
⛲️Often as relationships progress the Venus-Neptune person will realize their warts of ugly side and become disillusioned. They then either make a quiet retreat or make the other person break up with them
🌿 Can have super high expectations for relationships (usually unattainable by mere mortals)
⛲️Have a tendency to act like a victim
🌿 Can be reluctant to commit themselves to people or relationships
⛲️But when they are in love they can be super generous. They’ll make sacrifices for people they love without a second thought. When they’re in love they’re so kind and warm.
🌿They are easily touched by acts of kindness. They might love it when people write them songs, poetry, dance for them or offer them something heartfelt. (They’re great at sensing sincerity)
⛲️People with soft aspects (trine, sextile) find it easy to accept people. They tend to be super non-judgemental!
🌿Those with the hard aspects (opposite, square, conjunction) may still accept people, but this can go too far. They may have very few barriers between their psyche and others psyche. Their personal boundaries might also blurr when around others
⛲️Might have psychic gifts
🌿 Usually give people a second chance and are more forgiving. However, they are easily shocked, hurt in matters of the heart. But when they believe something is meant for them they can be persistent
⛲️Might attract drama in their love life sadly.
🌿Might be into spirituality
⛲️People with this placement might be interested in platonic relationships, or be asexual (be very much depends on the rest of the chart)
🌿Might have an interesting relationship to physical touch (some seem to love it while others hate it, depends on the chart)
⛲️Might love fantasy worlds, reading, watching movies or video games. Anything that can transport them out of this world!
🌿Tend to be caught up in a ‘lost love’ or someone they used to love in the past. They might still hold onto idealized memories of this person 💔
⛲️ Something interesting about this placement is that they can be ‘caught up’ in a relationship without actually being in a relationship. They can date a ‘fantasy’ of a relationship, without the other person needing to participate at all!
🌿Amazing at reading people’s emotions.
⛲️Might be gullible or easily seduced (although for how long depends on the person)
🌿However, can easily gain affection from others and become the seducer if they want to
⛲️Might find it hard to be in an equal relationship. They tend to unconsciously fall in love with someone they see as ‘higher’ or ‘lower’ than them. They tend to take the role of the saviour or a victim to be saved
🌿They might see themselves as the only person who can emphasize, understand or save this person
⛲️ Often fall in love with someone who is unobtainable (they have a tendency for unrequited love). Sometimes it’s because they are unobtainable that they fall for them
🌿Very selfless when they are in love
⛲️There’s an ethereal or otherworldly quality to them that keeps them and their relationships just out of reach. There can be this sense of distance from them and the rest of the world
🌿usually get along well with everyone, when they express love it feels warm and sincere
⛲️Great at caring professions, they might also make good healers
🌿Super creative (for example, Mozart had the opposition)
⛲️ They’re amazing at inspiring others, they can get others to see their vision or create their own
🌿Their love may have an otherworldly or spiritual feel to it.
⛲️There’s an underlying softness and kindness to them
🌿Being in nature can be very healing for them
⛲️While Venus-Neptune people have a tendency to live in an illusion and see the world the way they want to, they have amazing kindness, compassion and love to spread. They are creative, sincere and otherworldly, and can make for amazing and enchanting friends and partners.🌿

Neptune in the 1st people have an unseen battle being carried out just below the surface. Where her spirit meets body, endless conflict between light and darkness and darkness and light takes place all day and night. She hears the call to surrender to the sleepy serene of midnight for eternity while being drawn to a glowing echo. Sometimes her spirit is unsure where to go and it creates a lability of her existence that makes it all seem too real or surreal. She often gives up trying to tell whatever could come next. Everything seems a certainty in this mythic choreography. She often gives up trying to tell whatever could come next. Everything seems a certainty in this mythic choreography.
While Neptune in the 1st people are notorious for evoking dreamy, faraway, and surreal impressions, her life within is anything but a dream. The Neptune in the 1st visions are direct divinations from the divine flame. Her imagination and spellbound reverie becomes a nation in itself where she expends an astral adrenaline in exchange for metaphysical energy. When she closes her eyes, sets her sights on the conquest and chases the fantasy, she can sense the fire burning the dream into her real life as she catches it in her hands.
This excessive expenditure of physical energy in immaterial realms can result in a tiredness that she can’t seem to sleep off. Neptune in this position can design vivid, peculiar and poignant, and trilogy-like dream episodes that may result in her questioning if certain events occurred while she was awake or slept. There may be frequent unsettling themes involving combat, violence, cruelty, bloodshed, and fire, and sometimes with a seeming impaired ability to run, freely move, or escape. In some extreme cases, the dreaming is excessive and even involves repetitive or demanding physical labour. Even when the individual has forgotten her dream or believes she slept the whole night through, the side-effects of her secret life become evident throughout the day. She may experience a vague or heavy daytime fatigue, a listlessness that cannot be explained, a weariness when she gets home that can make socialising at times seem a marathon effort.
The condition of Neptune in the 1st house may produce adrenal-like episodes in the individual involving or similar to feverish spikes of temperature, emotional reactivity, excitement, inspiration, impulsive desire, and anxious anticipation that end with the sense of the blood is being drained out of her. Frequent and chronic headaches or migraines with intense auric experiences at the onset, often with sleep-deprivation being major causation may be another Neptune in the 1st side-effect. She may also possess veins notorious for swimming away whenever she needs blood drawn, turning even the most simple venipuncture or blood test attempt into a routine ordeal - for both the clinician and the individual.
The First House is the astrological house of self-expression, presentation, and exhibition. Neptune casts a great vision onto the character she appears to be and the impression she wants to create in others. As Neptune is a planetary muse, the individual may enjoy the masquerade of make-up and experimenting with various palettes, styles, cosmetics, costumes and watching the character in the doll that comes to life.
The First House also belongs to Aries, and Neptune’s fog of redemption can be next impossible to resist and will be closer defined depending on the sign and aspects made to Neptune. It may produce an inclination for harsh Aries and Mars tainted regimes, possibly involving strict physical exertion and activity, punishment and restriction, even the bloody carnage, agony, excruciating recovery, and faded scarring of cosmetic surgery to attain and maintain the vision. This brutality in her nature may be quite surprising and seemingly at odds with her appearance - especially one of Neptunian aesthetic, glamour, and grace. It can be all-out blood, sweat, and wet mascara tears behind these picturesque scenes.
This is why the mirror is a symbol that follows Neptune in the 1st around life if she can see it or she doesn’t. It’s the altar where she catches a glimpse of the inner Priestess as particles move from the light to her eyes for the enchanting illusive moment. The mirror can cast a reflection that blurs and changes before her eyes. Her transfixed gaze are all that remain unchanged as her face swirls like mixed watercolour into mirages, memories, mermaid ancestors, and sometimes a small child.
The mirror can also be a site of self-confrontation, declaring torment, heartache, and attempts to remember who she is. It can be where she cries out and for the girl staring back in a private ritual of saving herself.
In some scenarios, extreme rage and self-contempt can distort the image into a girl that she wants to hurt or even destroy, that she could shatter this mirror and see the broken pieces of herself everywhere.
The compass beneath all of this is the spiritual task of Neptune in the 1st in action, felt most evidently through the ill-defined identity that can trouble her throughout life. That evasive ‘tangible’ identity she saw others grow into and thought she would eventually too. That is not the Way for Neptune in the 1st. The archetypal Neptune is The Mystic, The Muse, The Magician, The Mermaid and The Matriarchal Holy Trinity, who all and more go through the process of ‘waking up’ in her first house as they move away from the comforts and familiarity of dewy darkness and into the light. Her story is the rebirth of a new Priestess in the spring- the Goddess who breaks each dawn, a new initiate, a new leader to guide us toward the next vibration, astral territory, and undiscovered dimension. A new teacher of scholars, a new visionary to lead the dreaming. From victim to victory, the only possible ending of this story.
Much awaited, ordained, celebrated,but most of all, content, at ease, with who she is.
Light at last,
without a shadow of a self-doubt

Percy and Leo: yes
Jason: why did you say that with zero hesitation
Our Moon reaches apogee, (furthest from Earth), for this orbit, on Thursday January 21st. For this apogee the 9-day old waxing gibbous Moon will be at a distance of 31.70 Earth diameters, 251,282 miles (404,400 km) from the Earth.
On the date of the apogee, and high above the southwestern horizon, is the 8-day old waxing gibbous Moon. The Moon will be about 7o to the east from the planet…
mercury-neptune aspect culture is being much better at having thoughts than at expressing them
Heyy! thanks for reaching out! can’t do much of a detailed reading bc it takes time BUT
- This can be a very shy person in social situations but they are capable of having elaborate conversations once they muster the confidence
- There is a focus on creative endeavors and since the chart ruler is mercury in pisces they might be a writer who invents fictional characters
- This person may seem like the chaotic artsy type but they have the discipline to organize their creativity and create something meaningful
Neptune, higher octave of Mercury, leads and persuades the native to continue conversations with those who dismissed them and expectations were killed. Neptune’s waves can make the native feel drowned at sea, feeling unheard and unsure of what to do next. It’s Neptune who convinces themselves of illusions that delay and avoid heartbreak until inevitably the dream is over and it’s daybreak. All the faith Neptune gives that can be easily misdirected, I wish it’d be easier to direct at oneself and focus on finding solid ground to stand on despite all the uncertainty. All the forgiveness that Neptune offers, I wish it’d be easier to give to oneself and focus on the beautiful future. Rest can be used to replenish, dreams can be used to build reality and Pisces/Neptunians can learn to understand the truths behind the fantasy and find peace.
Such a neat planet, such an unfortunate name!
THE DEPTHS OF POWER
THE DEPTHS OF POWER
Drowning in the waters of Neptune
My heart feels sore and beaten. Someone purposely sharpened a needle and dug it deep into the core of my heart so all of my blood could gush out of my body and murder my soul. My skin is now decorated with its instinctive thorns to protect myself from any further attacks. My soul resides within the 8th house which is surrounded by the mysterious and cold waters of Neptune. I thought my heart was healed until I discovered an open wound that burned when the waters of Neptune kissed it. Some how I survived the betrayal and although my heart stopped pumping my Pisces spirit revived it. I have received a second chance. My body is floating deep in the waters of Neptune so my heart can continue to beat. I hope that someday my body will have enough strength to levitate back to the surface and into the light.
I love drawing Anthro!Neptune cause of his punk/rock attire :’D
Sometimes he would go full out punk and a bit overboard and his brother Uranus doesn’t like this too much lol
12th house / Pisces / Neptune Aesthetics
I have a dream my life would be. So different from this hell I’m living. So different now from what it seem. Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
neptune transiting my 1st house is simultaneously screaming into the void and also being the void itself
Yup. Neptune is that dazzle, fantasy and illusions. Mars is sex, of course, but it’s also how we move, actions, our drive, physical/kinetic energy, anything masculine in energy. Mars/neptune is a magician, there’s something happening in the background– a dream, a fantasy, a motive, idk bc it’s unclear, really. The most common interpretations is the sexual one; sex fantasies, etc., because a lot of people confuse physicality with sex. When that’s not always the case. A dancer can move their body without being sexual. You can pour a drink or protect someone, for example, without being sexual.
The squares, in most cases, doesn’t really take away from the main energy. It just produces the more negative, or harsher/intense, situations from it. In all these aspects neptune is diluting mars’ passion/drive/action. With the square the drive becomes weak/”lazy”/deceitful, rather than the easier aspects where the drive is gallant-like– gentle, kind, etc.. Fantasy become angry delusions, rather than inspiration and motivation. Misinterpretation, rather than intuitive guidance. But once harsh aspects are tamed, one learns how to live with them better, they often show up as positive aspects.
Even when writing this I really feel like mars/neptune aspects are like the king Arthur/chivalry aspects. So it’s like living in that medieval fantasy, knight in shining armor or princess in the tower, type of charisma if I had to describe it as a setting.💙✨
