Neptune Conjunct Sun TransitNeptune conjunct Sun transit can open you up to a more spiritual outlook on life which can be very illuminating but at the same time make you feel very vulnerable,  as your previously well-defined self-image and personal boundaries start to dissolve around you.

We are not isolated beings, and this transit brings mysterious experiences, imagery and intuitive feeling that helps you “see” the energy that connects you to other people and your environment.

If you have been interested in the spiritual, the religious or occult for a while and have a good handle on it, then this transit will suit you well. You can look forward to even greater illumination, closer union with the spirit world, and more sensitive and compassionate relationships.

Some people will find the dissolving of boundaries and the piercing of the ego more frightening. If your place in the world was based on egocentric drives, in ignorance of how your energy impacted on others, then the influx of psychic energies will be a threat to that fortified ego.

The result may be an erosion of self belief, confusion and doubts which can lead to insecurity and over sensitiveness. You may be subject to deception or treachery from others. During this transit you may have to accept just how intertwined you are with the people around you, and with the energies that most of us cannot see. Remember you are a part of the whole, trust in your spirit guides.

Your pineal gland, brow chakra, or third eye, is being activated. Meditation, spiritual studies and lucid dreaming will enhance the journey. Though you may find some benefit from, and even have a stronger desire for mind altering substances, it is very important to only use these ceremonially, in moderation. Smoking pot every day or turning to the bottle would bring out the very worst of this transit, self-delusion, addiction, victimization and miserable self-pity.

    • I’m not an expert on progressions but I expect it would be very similar and last about as long.

      • Agreed if a secondary progression. However, if it is a solar arc progression, about 6 months.

  1. Have definitely been feeling this one. And now that Neptune is retrograde, it will pass over my sun again. @.@ Lol, it has been a treat not having to try to be in touch with the universe, but the magnitude of emotional influx can be overwhelming at times. I find myself simply gushing with other people’s emotions from time to time. I have enough of my own! ;-P Definitely enjoying the boost to meditation time though. ^.^

  2. How will this influence day-to-day life and decision making? Escapism and confusion? Can this transit cloud judgement?

  3. I noticed that this transit at the beginning brings a mild inferiority complex which slowly evolves into a new spiritual/artistic integrity within about 3 year period.

    • Neptune’s not conjunct my Sun, but in transit trine the Sun and trine Neptune in my natal. It’s also partile opposite natal Pluto, which sextiles the natal Sun & Neptune. A deeply psychological time, with Neptune transiting the early 4th house.

      “a mild inferiority complex”! Hah!! Mine’s on Medium-high complexity.

      It’s very difficult to stay focussed on pragmatics … everything devolves into an intuitive spark of the moment activity, or just another nap.

      When Saturn finally directs it will be ingressing to my Neptune in Scorpio. I’m hoping to divine the creative structure you’ve described during this time. Neptune in 12th. Yhat transit will be next year’s story.

      I’m looking forward to more information on how to manage this dissolving energy, which is illuminating … but difficult to manifest in practical ways.

    • I’ve found the same to be true of my experience of progressed Sun conjunct natal Neptune actually… only it took several months rather than 3 years, to go from inferiority complex to further enhanced spiritual/artistic integrity/avenues.

      It also required quite a bit of isolation in the form of a Van Gogh style exit ie: when he was thrown out of his missionary work & via a stint of despair, began drawing & painting.
      (& my ear is fine btw).

  4. all I know is that I have Mars 2 degrees Virgo. Been exhausted and drained all Spring. Feel much better now it has only moved 1 degree. I expect this opposition to return soon.

  5. Neptune has been encroaching upon my natal Sun at 5Pisces (which is almost exactly squared my natal Neptune at 5Sagittarius). Oh wait! Transiting North Node is conjunct my natal Neptune at 5 Sag, thus squaring my natal Sun. I don’t believe a word anybody says.

  6. My first comment here as a new reader.

    I have Neptune transiting my natal Venus (Pisces – 1st house) opposition to Pluto which also squares Mars which opposes Jupiter (also square Venus). I’m new to this but I guess with Venus and Mars being the personal planets for the feminine/masculine dynamic this should be something for me to keep an eye on.

    Your Venus transit post, Jamie, was also spot on for my current romantic situation which has a ‘hidden’ (3rd party) aspect that feels like it’s about to come out of hiding. The Capricorn man in my life is definitely experiencing the Pluto/Uranus square and coming up to his 2nd Saturn return too!

  7. I had Neptune oppose my sun in 08,09 & 2010 along with Pluto. My experience when the exact degree between the planets was with God & Jesus. I got to see heaven. Now I am having in a year of my progress sun conjunct Neptune. Not sure of what this will be but feel its another spiritual impulse. My sun was in 1st house along with pluto & Neptune on the nadair. I been told I have the exact aspect of Pluto sextile Neptune when it first came together in WW2. Some piece of humanity during this time till 2030’s. Do anyone have any. Knowledge of this transit & what it might mean?

  8. I don’t think one can ever understate the effect of a transit-even when it isn’t in exact orb with your personal planet. The effects are still there.

    A friend of mine had Natal Sun/Moon conjunct in Pisces nataly. He passed away last year after being in hospital for an illness/infection that doctors could not find.

    Apparently,the illness was so obscure(typical Neptune), that they had to dig into his bone marrow and run tests from those samples. Eventually, albeit very painfully, they were able to conclude that his it was a bone infection.

    We all assumed that he would recover, but Neptune had other things in store, and so, I believe the whole ordeal zapped him of his energy and his last Facebook status was “new beginnings” -days before he left us for the spiritual world.Perhaps he did know that this was “it” for him?

    I miss him a great deal and think of him often. I wonder if more people integrated astrology into their lives and used its resources to navigate or perhaps unearth possibilities,would people start paying attention to their more spiritual side?

  9. Neptune transiting my natal Sun at 8 Pisces for what feels like forever. It’s painful. I feel unsure, uncertain, and on top of it, my partner’s transiting Neptune is also riding over my natal Sun for now thru…2026? Can this union survive this transit? I feel I am coming undone. I feel like a shadow of my former self. I sense the spiritual lessons here, letting go, acceptance, expansion of my spirituality and real integration of the idea that nothing lasts. Karmically, i try to understand why this incarnation is so themed by this message. I wish it were over but it seems i have 10 years to go. What will be left after this? Tr Neptune squaring natal Neptune as well. I went sober from pot & booze since a few months ago, aware of the self-medicating i was doing. I can’t say i feel any better.

    • The transit should not be a real burden for more than three years. Do not turn to drugs or alcohol; that brings out the worst of these transits. Withdraw yourself in solitude whenever you feel stressed, especially by relationship issues. Search out spiritual disciplines or practices that can take the place of your addictions. Do not expect to feel better for perhaps several years; you’re looking at a long-term change in yourself, not an instant cure. Think of yourself as your own child. What would you do for that child, if she felt the way you feel right now?

  10. I have Neptune transiting my Sun in Pisces then my Moon, then my mercury.(Sun on 8th house cusp moon & mercury in 8th) The moon is one leg of Pluto, Neptune YOD. I also have Jupiter on my leo ascendant as part of the fire trine with Uranus in 11 and Mars in 5. My tarot readings are a spiritual experience for me even though I am reading others. I am also writing a book about how to use Tarot to increase your sensativity. As extreme as all this is, it is the most spiritual time of my life and I am taking full advantage of it!!!!!!!

  11. I am a Sagittarius born December 11, 1951, 1:15 pm EST at Cleveland, Ohio. I am making a comment primarily because I am looking at what other astrologers have to say about the current conjunction between the transiting Sun and transiting Neptune. In my chart both are transiting through my natal 12th house. At the current degree (7/8) Pisces there is no aspect to any other section of my chart. However, I am of the opinion that Neptune rules Sagittarius and Pisces along with Jupiter and it is extremely important to me to delineate this Neptune transit through my t2th house in that it will be in effect until 2026 and is complimenting in tandem the transit of Pluto through my natal 10th house which will be in effect until 2024.

    I know that I have had an experience with my spiritual “teacher” (though he would not appreciate at all being called this) which helps to confirm the developmental road I have chosen to travel and I wanted to attempt to share some of this especially as it may pertain to Sun/Neptune interpretations.
    The relationship between these two planets always involves some measure of the deflation of the ego and what might be called a de-focusing of the image one has of oneself up until this point, unless that image is inline with the more spiritual aspects of one’s nature, of one’s character.

    What my Baba was able to help me see was a somewhat debilitating and deflating reflection of my “self” as it is and not as I would to be. The day we had an initial conversation the feeling for the rest of that day was almost a complete, total depression. I decided not to go anywhere that day (a decision made easier by the fact the temperatures here in Cleveland have been below zero to single digits for the past several days). A good thing concerning this was the fact I knew of this transit though I hadn’t thought much about it before this conversation and during some subsequent exchanges between us over the last few days concerning some DVD’s (another Neptunian area – film and fantasy -) he diligently turned my attention to myself as I am, which was a painful experience but one that is necessary if one wishes to be honest (a Sagittarian keyword) in fact as well as in potential.

    What is interesting for me is the fact that I could see how if I were as identified with myself as I have been say 20 years ago, I would have succumb to the feelings of depression and self-pity which would tie me ever more tightly to this image of myself which is not the true, the “authentic” me. It is also interesting that he was saying in so many words the same thing which was being said in a book that one of the spiritual teachers of the 20th century was speaking about though he doesn’t know that I happen to be reading this material at this time. So the effect is that of both reading and hearing the notion of reality simultaneously has had a weird effect to say the least. (also most likely attributable to Neptunian affects).

    At any rate just thought I would share this bit of astrological insight.
    Ashe!

    I am a 11 degree Pisces Sun which sits in my 2nd house conjunct the 3rd (I have a stellium in this house as well as my 9th house? I am a 25 degree Sadge rising. Saturn opposes my Sun. I can tell you Neptune to the Sun has been HELL! Pluto transit my 1st house has and is HELL. I have so much going on in my life, so many losses. I don’t know how I have been able to get through this thus far. The sad part is I just turned 66 years old. I have no idea how I am going to get through all of this……it’s tough…….really tough…….

    • I’m afraid Saturn square Neptune this year is making this transit much much harder than it would be on its own. Hang in there!

  13. I also have a 11 degree Pisces sun in my 8th, so i totally understand what Claudia meant. Moreover, I have Uranus and Jupiter conjuncting and squaring my sun. So now, Neptune is sitting upon my sun and Saturn is sitting upon my Uranus/Jupiter.

  14. I have lots of Pisces in my chart and the above transit certainly applies. The issue I have w/astrologers is that their definition of Neptune always implies charity toward other humans. Uh-huh… I happen to prefer animals and plants. And my charitable impulse will always find an outlet there. The Pisces and Neptunian archetypes understand that we are closely intertwined with the natural world. But who cares about wildife these days or trees? A very small number of humans, for sure. (And I’m not talking about climate change — which is a catch-all term that ends up turningo off many people. I’m talking about caring about other beings that live on the planet alongside us. They too evolved here and have an equal stake). Astrology on the web over-emphasizes human affairs. It’s a total turn-off… We can’t afford it, anyway… Please try to rectify this oversight and include other beings in your definitions. Thank you.

    • 15 degree pisces sun here. Lots of confusion regarding my thyroid. At times its too high and then other times too low. Changing Doctors like crazy because they are causing more confusion. Anxiety problems for no good reason. Ugghhh i am soo done already. I am hoping and praying this will end soon.
