Neptune transits are really the worst - A RANT
I have no one to rant to, so I´m sharing it here. If you have any interesting stories about transit Neptune feel free to share!

So, I have a very complicated chart. When something touches my Pisces Ascendant it forms a grand square with my T-square. I am having a miserable time with Neptune on my AC. First, when it started opposing my Moon we were in the midst of a Pandemic and I started smoking weed regularly. Before that, I used to dab here and there but only socially. Fat forward to now, I am waking and baking practically everyday. It helps with my anxiety, but sometimes I miss feeling grounded.

When it came closer to my Mercury I started to make silly mistakes at work. Not a big deal, but still weird to me as I am very detail oriented (Virgo Moon). Thing is, Transit Jupiter was also conjunct my Ascendant expanding Neppy´s vibe. When Jupiter was forming an opposition to my Sun-Mars and while Neptune was already square my Mid-heaven I was suddenly fired without warning. My job dissolved right before my eyes. I had high hopes of changing sectors inside the company and getting fired was like being shot in the chest. I never saw it coming and was utterly disappointed with myself.

At first, I was suffering deeply and crying everyday. But thankfully, I got a nice severance package and I was and still am in a comfortable situation as I have a remote side job too. Also, after I was fired there was a big scandal about racism where I used to work and a lot of other people left. They reached out and said I "left" in the best possible time. Jupiter... even when it´s bad, it´s kinda good.

Now, it really does seem like I am afloat. Was offered a dream job in my field (I work in Art Conservation) but it´s a government job and my resumé is still being "analyzed" by the new manager. I am patiently waiting, but there´s too much confusion and uncertainty. I don´t know if I should get my hopes up, really... with Neptune square Mid-heaven it seems like every work opportunity will end up not happening.

Right now, T-Saturn is trining my natal Jupiter (Ruler of my 10th house). Soon, T. Jupiter will sextile it. I don´t think trines and sextiles would weaken Neppy´s transits, but maybe it could help being seen?

The thing with Neptune is that it takes ages and I still have a long way to go. It will eventually oppose sun-mars, square Saturn, Neptune, Uranus and Jupiter. Wheeeeew. Thanks for reading! :18:

Adorei ver seu alto nivel de conhecimento sobre seu Netuno. Tinha q trabalhar com arte, e a questão com drogas é muito óbvia. Tb acho que trânsitos de Netuno podem ser muito nocivos, destruidores. Realmente são perigosos. Netuno rege minha 10 junto com Urano, mas está na t em conj exata com N Norte e Júpiter. Ele tá passando pela minha 10, à anos, sabe como é. Mas tranquilo eu sigo o fluxo das águas mesmo. Boa sorte na tentativa de novo emprego.

The Lord of the Year (profections) is Jupiter, 10th house is active.
In your solar return for 2023 you have NeptunRx on Asc/Pisces, srMC/Sag is ruled by srJupiterRx in the first house, which is in opposition to your srSun in the 7th (the main theme is job and the relationships, also in the business).
7th sr house is ruled by srMercuryRx, what (Rx) indicates some kind of problems with understanding, wrong interpretation the informations or wrong communication. Solar Venus conjunct MercuryRx on Dsc, but she is in fall in Virgo.

I have the Neptune opposition Pluto right now. It seems to be digging up stuff i forgot about the last 28 years. I guess you can say bringing up the surface of forgotten parts of myself that may be positive and negative.

Shadow side of where I once was versus shadow side of who I am now. Still quite different ends of the spectrum. Getting past fears and confronting things i haven´t yet within self and relating with other people.

I also have transit Neptune conjunct my natal moon in Pisces in sixth house square my natal Neptune in third house. Solar ascendant this year in Pisces. Everything is really foggy, depressing lately sometimes I feel like loosing my mind. Don’t know how to handle this long transit… they say the first wave of this long transit is the worst?

Thank you so much! This SR my 7th house is very activated and sure enough I have a new partner. I was expecting good things out of that 10th house Pluto as it has good aspects, oh well... still months to go!

Neptune drains our energy. I was always a social butterfly, but have no patience anymore. It also made me a terrible liar, especially for creating excuses for not going out.

I hear you. Believe me, I´ve had my troubles with Neptune transits.

There is an incredibly simple solution that has worked or me and most of my clients going through them. Sodalite, the semi-precious gem. Wear it on your body. Start with a modest amount, but add more as needed. It neutralizes the confusion, anxiety, uncertainty, and allows clear, rational thought and intuitive perception.

Sodalite is one of the gems/crystals that I´ve identified as a Neptune stone. Labradorite, Larimar, Blue Jade, and possibly Turquoise are the others in case the Sodalite doesn´t work.

Yes, the transit is not good, but it is in cadent house, so the malefic influence is also weak, and you have Jupiter in Taurus as a supporting planet :-)
Solar Asc in Pisces is not bad (because the ruler is also beneficial Jupiter), but the presence of Saturn on it, in the sign which Saturn don’t like, it may cause problems, also Neptun in the first house don’t let you have a clear direction. The Sun is in the 2nd house, your values and job issues will need your attention, the ruler of the 2nd, Venus is on IC/Gemini (solar MercuryRx indicated some issues with family/IC and relationships/Virgo/7H).
Profections: active house is 4th, Lord of the Year is Saturn transiting your 5th house (selfexpression, children, pleasure).

Pluto is about confronting fears, and Neptune is about looking inwards, letting go of the physical world. Maybe this transit is about confronting these forgotten shadow parts of yourself, so you can let go of/dissolve them once and for all. When Neptune transits through a sensitive point, it´s best to do nothing about it. Don´t fight whatever is happening to you. Just go with the flow.

About 10 years ago, I had Neptune opposing my Venus. A relationship wasn´t working, but I insisted on making it work. I was in denial and completely delusional, so the fall was brutal and led to consequences.

Now that Neptune is squaring my natal Jupiter, these consequences resurfaced lately. I decided to ignore them. It seems to be working.

Also, I´ve been feeling tired and my energy levels depleted. I stopped job hunting, and I stopped working out. I am focusing on Astrology and doing yoga instead. I am not sure if I´m working positively with Neptune or if I am in complete denial of my situation :4:
But the only thing I´m sure of is that during a Neptune transit, it´s best to do nothing.

Your input is most welcome!

Do nothing about it. Let go, and look inwards. Try meditation, yoga, or therapy... Isolate yourself if you must. You will also greatly benefit from artistic expressions such as dancing, singing, acting, or painting. Neptune is the higher form of Venus, so you need to strengthen your fallen Venus in Aries through 7th House-related activities.

I start to realise indeed that go with the flow is the best you can do to handle. Let go of fighting things and push yourself to be braver. I accepted that everything does not go well. I skip social obligations, more isolation. Stopped working out, focus more on things like yoga, astrology,… But it is hard to keep a balance between being flooded and stay grounded. Where to go with flow and where it is best to keep in mind it is all a delusion. Focusing on 7th house related things is exactly where I have troubles right now, as all my 1-1 relationships are being challenged. My new attitude was to let go of the focus on these.

Yes, I agree. Neptune in 8th house the whole time has been basically this, letting go of whatever I was once attached to and just that ending point of course as you said letting go of what I once believed. It is bringing and ending to 2nd house that was 2007-2009 in Saturn in Virgo, releasing relationships, but then ending others with Saturn in Pisces and Neptune in Pisces, which involved a lot of Chaos, breaking through the Maya Illusions of a Mountain of stuff through the years. Kind of the ending of Chapter since it´s also the ending of the Jupiter Dasha, which also kind of drops everything, and starts a new road with Saturn Dasha.

It´s all kind of a repeat of that first part, but now just starting a new clean slate i guess you can say. Yes, non-attachment to the outcome, not resisting, fighting, or hanging out to anything is pretty much how it goes. All kind of bitter sweet. :61: Inner world was pretty much the bottom of my chart and then going back into the physical now in the top of the chart.

All the squares pretty much mastered and the opposition. This is just a new opposition so it´s kind of actually clearing the clouds to see more clearly what I didn´t see before. Then you get emotional, then stings for a minute, and then you go oh shit! What a dumb ass. Then like what the hell~

I just kind of try to have a sense of humor.

Exactly my thought today on having a sense of humour. I’m actually on a wild ride of many Neptune squares until 2030 :61: I thought it would be better to laugh about it!

Sometimes I even wonder if it wouldn’t be easier to just enjoy life and be careless :4: Ignorance is bliss they say :4: People who don’t look at Astrology are unbothered by it. Nothing happens to them. My husband has 5 Saturn, 3 Neptune, and 1 Pluto ongoing transit aspects and he seems quite relaxed :4:
