Neptune is the second planet in astrology which we call an outer planet. A planet beyond Saturn, not one of the heavenly bodies originally seen by the ancients. Neptune’s higher vibration is about where we find the the #divine
, and associate with higher realms. It is the higher version of Jupiter. And the dark side of things, if Neptune is being used the wrong way or is doing stuff traditionally harsher planets like say Mars or Saturn, Neptune can bring deception, lies, and delusion. It’s also known as an escapist planet and people with strong Neptune in their charts need to find their #spirituality
or they often will use the Neptune for those grand escapist playgrounds: alcohol, drugs, addiction, losing one’s self in a negative way in something or someone else.
The history of Neptune is fascinating because it is very Neptunian! (I.e. involves confusion and missteps) It was discovered in 1612 and mistook for a moon of Jupiter by Galileo. After being semi- seen and pseudo-discovered by quite a few astronomers and sort of batted around a bit, it was then OFFICIALLY discovered 1846 by Johann Galle. The full story can be read at Skyscript (http://www.skyscript.co.uk/neptune.html) a site which I heartily recommend created by Deborah Houlding, a great Astrologer of our time. The site focuses particularly on the classical significations.
Neptune’s official discovery correlated with the human inventions of photography and early film. The first #daguerreotype
came out in the 1830s and George Méliès’ fantastical early #films
like “A Trip to the Moon ” and “The Kingdom of the Fairies” were made around the turn of the century.
Neptune is also associated with water, oceans, and seas so I have drawn her in a skirt with an ocean print and in oceans blues and turquoises and given her sandals to walk on the beach. It’s just one interpretation. So many ways to draw Neptune!
