positives to neptune

what are the positives to neptune, i would like your opinion.
personally neptune has my least favourite effect. it is vague and blurs boundaries to the point of unknowing exposure. when looking into chiron aspects, i could deal with them it seems easier than i can do with neptune. same as neptune, chiron gives a compassion - but with borders. neptune needs structure and when you have no idea how, it becomes very frustrating and saddening.

Re: positives to neptune

There are lots of positives... with every sign along with negative.

Positives of neptune can be dream like.
High creativity via all means... from art, poetry or spirituality along with many other things.
Neptune can also have a self sacrifice, rescuing hero quality.

Really depends on the individual

when aspects are hard, especially oppositions, it is very difficult to consider the side of neptune to be positive. and this is my issue. there isnít structure and instead self sacrificial inertia.

Re: positives to neptune

There are sooo many positive things about Neptune for me. One of the tightest aspects in my chart is Mercury opposite Neptune, but I still feel like Neptune is mostly a positive power in my chart. Maybe it helps that my Neptune is in the last degrees of the third house, because communication through art and music is a huge part of my life. I do have rather thin boundaries towards other people (12th house Moon certainly doesn't help) but with enough time spent alone to recharge, and give Neptune some creative outlets, I'm keeping a good balance. Any sort of artistic activity is like meditation for me, and very healing. And reading is the perfect healing combination of Mercury and Neptune. Escapism (Neptune) through words (Mercury). The Neptunian rose colored glasses can also be a huge help in life I feel. Most things look brighter than they really are for me, and I can see the good even in the bleakest of experiences. So yeah... for me Neptune heals more than it harms.

Re: positives to neptune

I also have a Pisces 6th house, but mine is empty... I have quite a lot of neptunian things in my daily routine, and I think that helps. I also get to use intuition and compassion a lot in my work.

Compassion! The ability to evade your enemy, an affinity with animals, water and nature in general, psychic abilities.

I also really agree with Domnaís interpretation, especially about believing things are better than they actually are, I mean, I live in a pile of my own **** but I daydream.

Re: positives to neptune

May I suggest you observe the chart as a whole?

You may have a preponderance of Earth, a Mercury that is concrete, a dominant Saturn or many other things that may make it difficult to appreciate the subtle, the nuanced, the unseen.

Neptune brings wonderful gifts, often at high cost but worth the price.

Can you elaborate on what you mean about the high cost please? Do you mean like how every planet has a shadow side, like Neptune can be escapist and delusional? Is it also that a Neptunian can delve too deeply into unknown matters and become disconnected from reality? I feel like my inner growth far exceeds my outer growth.

Re: positives to neptune

Like, for example, I have a very powerfully angular Neptune. Passing through alcoholism (high cost) brought priceless benefits.

I managed to be drug free for 5 years but was still a binge drinker when I partied, then I started smoking weed after a break up with a boyfriend but it helped control my need to party and now Iím psychologically nearly ready to stop the weed smoking (I hope it hasnít done permanent damage but I like my sharper mind returning and being less dopey and lazy). Everyone thought I would be an alcoholic because I would get so wasted but 5 years later and I hardly ever drink and when I do, I can have a couple drinks and thatís it. I did get wasted on my birthday though but it reminded me why I donít like it (because Iím an idiot).

Congrats on your journey. Iím slowly building up the positive aspects but I know mermaids, fairies and all the beautiful archetypes are real. Neptune is beautiful

May I ask, is it because your Neptune is angular it is powerful or because it makes positive aspects or a combination?

I have Mercury conjunct neptune... Mercury is separating tho in Capricorn.


And I definitely see the positives with it.
Iíve seen a lot of people turn dreams into reality.

My Mercury feels like it has a very realistic outlook tho.
So with every planet and sign. Can see the good has well has the bad.

Angular planets are
always powerful.

Neptune is 2į52' from IC. I consider that up to 3į is an "exact" aspect. Neptune's aspectarian is not impressive.

You donít like the symbol? It reminds me of King Tritons trident.

Re: positives to neptune

I have an angular Neptune too, conjunct the IC. Which they say is associated with rootlessness, issues with finding a home or fixed ground to stand on... I've honestly never experienced any of that. I'm deeply rooted in very firm ground. Never had any issues with drugs either, nor any mental health issues. My mother suffers from bipolar disorder, with depression and manic psychosis, so I guess that is a negative of Neptune that has impacted me... but it's not something I have personally struggled with, nor did it impact my childhood. My mother is also a fountain of neptunian positives though... art, music, inspiration, selfless compassion etc, so I'll take the bad with the good. In my own life and psyche I have a hard time seeing any serious downsides to Neptune.

Transiting is currently trine transiting in Scorpio, 1 degree orb.
It's also 1 degree from my Natal-chart Asc. I'm feelin' it. Feels magical.

Long ago I went to an astrologers' convention, sat in on a lecture entitled "Planets in the Angles". The lady came to "Neptune in the Fourth Angle" and said... "Momma was a Space Cadet". I nearly fell out of my chair laughing. My Mom was called Crazy Mary everywhere she went.

Rootlessness, story of my life.
Got some Special Perspectives on life for my pains.

Lots of other Neptunian stuff....

Made a mystic of me.

So much depends on the chart as a whole.

Lol! Yeah, my momma is quite the space cadet! Or rather an unrepentant village eccentric... She gave me some special perspectives on life just by being who she was.
