Who are the Neptunians? They get their name from Neptune in astrology. It is the shamanic planet of dreams, utopias, myths, ghosts, art, perfume, vampires past-life love affairs, addictions, and yearnings.
A Neptunian is a person with prominent 12th House, Pisces or Neptune influences at birth. (Neptune rules Pisces, and the 12th House is akin to Pisces). More than any other astral influence, Neptune slithers swiftly between high (haute) and low vibe versions.
Once I joked that the astrological Neptune is not so much a planetary influence as it is a drug. Neptune, whether by its strong placement at birth or via activation by transit, is a strong guiding vision – spiritual, artistic – that can be all-consuming. The Neptunian soul quest can leave them more prone to misuse of Neptunian substances.
Neptune In Astrology Is More Drug Than Planet
Some Neptunians use seduction and romance as a drug, hooked on the initial high of someone being beguiled by them, blurring boundaries and not bothering with the tiresome shackles of reality. Whether they deploy this for good or to get their needs met in the moment, Neptunians have immense reservoirs of charm. They transmit multiple simulacra to activate the desired response in the other person. It feeds their consciousness and compassion – the other person is happy, right? Of course, it is a performance, and at some point, the lights have to come back on.
Standard morality is not necessarily a dominant trait. But their keenly refined aesthetic senses, musical appreciation, adoration of the arts in general and – usually – creative talents draw them into realms where make-believe is not just an asset but a prized core competency. Film, Acting, and Beauty are all Neptunian professions.
Quality Solitude Is A Neptunian Must
But Neptunians who give their all to a facade or sustaining a projection, they lose their spiritual connection. The magic that generates their lucrative charisma then dissipates. They need to cherish their connection with unseen energies, Quintessence, animals, and spirit. Quality solitude is a must.
But when you’re a Neptunian, you’re never really alone. Their awareness of different dimensions is exquisite, their inner life automatically enriched. “Psychic” is a word often misapplied, but Neptune in astrology often manifests as a pure psychic genius. That is as opposed to the rapid genius processing of Uranian types or the insanely strong instincts of Pluto people. They are the most likely to see visions, ghosts, angels, or to have actual premonitions.
Sometimes the ideals of Neptunians can be so high and their dislike of plebeian relationships so intense that they subconsciously decide to have purely imaginary but not officially existent romances. They don’t want to risk the inevitable disenchantment. More sensitive than they ever let on, they could even still be melancholy re that first shard of disillusionment, eons ago. Their empathy and compassion are real – it’s just that they will redirect it without notice.
One thing that brings out the best in Neptunians (apart from not sliding down the Lower Neptunian rabbit hole of addiction or hooking up with vampires because they’re hot) is a dedication to spirit, a cause or creativity. With a genuine spiritual or artistic high, the lure of transcendence via substances or unreal romance no longer twinkles. Neptune in astrology is such high magic that it attracts low entities who want to divert it for murky purposes. Whether they know it consciously or not, Neptunians feel this.
