Sun Conjunct Neptune 1 March 2017

Sun Conjunct Neptune TransitSun conjunct Neptune in the natal chart makes you a very feeling, sensitive and caring person. You have a great imagination and experience a rich spiritual and dream life. Due to your heightened sensitivity to vibrational energy, there is great variability in how you deal with such inflow of energies. This can range from a spiritual enlightenment to paranoia, depending on fixed stars and other aspects to this conjunction.

You are likely to be unselfish and even submissive as Neptune raises your ego above self-interest. You transcend primitive ego needs and desires as part of your ego melds into your surroundings. You become one with our partner, family, community  and to an extent, even humanity as a whole.

Your connectedness can reach beyond the personal to include empathy or communion with other life forms and the environment. With your ego so naked or exposed, you are vulnerable to negative energies, just as much as you are enhanced by positive energies. This is where looking at your chart as a whole becomes most important with this aspect more than any other.

With negative input early in life such as psychological or physical abuse, poverty, discrimination etc., you ego will protect itself by withdrawing and hiding from the negative energy source. In such cases you may feel lonely, abandoned, scared or victimized.

To compensate for the loss of external input, your vivid imagination would create alternate realities in which you feel companionship, support, nourishment and purpose. You may dream up characters which take on their own form in the spirit world.

Later on this may lead to an inability to cope with reality, daydreaming, avoidance or responsibilities, lying, substance abuse or mental illness. The void can be filled with creative self-expression in the real world, such as religion, film, music, art, poetry, drama and role play.

Positive expression of this aspect will come naturally with good fixed star association or other helpful aspects. Turning around early negative conditioning will involve slowly but surely stepping out of your bubble or security blanket to rejoin the real world outside. A trusted loved one would be invaluable in giving support and helping to set goals.

The ability to share yourself while still maintaining a healthy ego is key to dealing with this natal aspect. You must learn to set realistic boundaries so you share just enough to maintain healthy relationships, but keep enough to sustain your own needs. The aim is confidence, vitality and a sense of purpose.

Too much of a boundary will lead to the examples above of the withdrawn child. Not enough boundaries could lead to being overwhelmed by negative energies, loss of vitality and illness. Being selfish and caring at the same time will be a work in progress.

Sun Conjunct Neptune Transit

Transiting Sun conjunct Neptune increases your sensitivity, intuition and empathy. Being more affected by the thoughts and feelings of others and the environment, this can be a positive or negative experience. The result depends on the people and conditions you find yourself in. It would be better to be alone rather than share the company of negative types who would drain your energy and leave you feeling depressed, scared or ill.

Being so caring and compassionate, your kindness will be seen as a weakness in the eyes of salespeople, loan sharks, drug dealers and psychic vampires. Your interest in the spiritual world will be stimulated but again, you are susceptible to false prophets and conspiracy theories.

Setting boundaries will allow you to enjoy a sense of togetherness with loved ones. You may benefit from joining or learning more about environmental, charity, social or community work and groups. Spiritual or occult subjects like astrology may be better understood under this high awareness transit.

At the more mundane level, this is a god time to go to the movies or escape from reality through a fantasy novel. Although this transit does sublimate your ego, you may still improve your self-esteem with the use of mirrors and cameras. Use your heightened imagination to work out how.

  1. Dear Jamie
    One of the best summaries I’ve read – particularly the idea of sharing oneself and maintaining a healthy ego, that is a tricky balance indeed. My aspect is 0.34 degrees.
    Regards, T

  2. Hi Jamie. I have Sun conjunct Neptune in my natal chart at 5 degrees, both Sun and Neptune in Scorpio. Any thoughts? All the best, Tina

    • Hi Tina, your conjunction is actually in Virgo Constellation because of precession and it being the largest constellation. Read about the fixed star Syrma and the one after it.

      • This response mystifies me, because I too have the conjunction in Scorpio. But even in a Vedic chart, which I thought took account of precession, a Scorpio conjunction is in Libra, not Virgo (assuming the planets are not at the tail end of Scorpio).

        Could you please explain? Were you responding to a chart that is not visible?

        Regards, T

        • Note I said Virgo Constellation, not Virgo Sign. That’s the area of confusion. I don’t use Signs in interpretation, only aspects and fixed stars.Reading this article might help: Precession Astrology.
