Neptune Opposite Ascendant Natal and Transit

Neptune Opposite Ascendant TransitNeptune opposite Ascendant in the natal chart gives an intriguing personal life which can range from utopian to scandalous. Your destiny seems tied to you partners as your individual identities dissolve into each other’s to a certain extent. It is important for you to keep the integrity of your own personality and self-image. Otherwise, your close relationships could become a source of confusion and disappointment.

Depending on associated aspects and fixed star conjunctions, either you or your partner are probably easily influenced by the other. One partner may be weak, vague, gullible, too sweet and innocent, or willing to turn a blind eye to character faults and deception. Over idealizing your partner or wanting to save them can actually feed their negative behavior. This kind of codependent dynamic can actually make it hard for them not to take advantage of your selflessness.

You may start a relationship feeling sorry for someone but end up feeling sorry for yourself. Playing the savior or martyr role can leave you demoralized, broke, exhausted and thinking you are unworthy of something better. You may go through a series of failed relationships with unfaithful, abusive, lying, sick, alcoholic or drug dependant partners. It will sometimes take a crisis, intervention or personal illness to snap you out of your delusion and rebuild your self-esteem and confidence. You need to set strong boundaries in your relationships if you are susceptible to bad influences.

If you are the partner that cheats and lies your way to a free meal then it’s time for a reality check. Self-awareness is a good start and spiritual development is the next step. It is possible with Neptune opposite Ascendant to find a happy balance. Some people let their partner think they do have a lot of influence even when they don’t. You don’t have to let your partners distort your self-image.

Some marriage partners are well matched in this area as was the case with Anthony Armstrong-Jones and Princess Margaret. Anthony had Neptune opposite Ascendant (0°11′).

The marriage was accompanied by drugs, alcohol and bizarre behaviour by both parties. [Wikipedia]

Although it may take more than one attempt, you can have a normal loving relationship with this aspect. In its higher manifestations, Neptune opposite Ascendant can represent your soul mate and a spiritually enlightened romance. You may actually dream up your ideal partner and experience true unconditional love. You may attract a nurse, doctor, musician or other entertainer. Perhaps Neptune manifests as someone with similar hopes and dreams or a very spiritual person.

Neptune Opposite Ascendant Transit

Neptune opposite Ascendant transit can bring your ideal partner to your door but also your worst nightmare. It is better to be ready for the worst because it will be difficult for you to tell the difference based on first impressions. Neptune passing over your Descendant tends to make you feel sorry for other people and more susceptible to confusion and deception in your one to one relationships.

It is never nice to think your friend or marriage partner is hiding something from you but if something like that is ever going to happen is it likely to happen now. You don’t want to live out his year or so is constant suspicion of everyone around you so the best was to handle this deceptive influence is to make sure you are not hiding things from your partner. This applies to your marriage partner and any business or professional partners.

Being totally honest and straightforward in all your dealings will cut the risk of being deceived or taken advantage of. Build trust and keep the channels of communication open and free of interference like gossip and lies. With new relationships you should ask yourself why they want to be your friend or partner. This transit tends to attract psychic vampires, thieves and an assortment of other scoundrels.

Don’t make it easy for people to use you or take from you. Your increased sensitivity and compassion will make it hard to ignore the suffering of others but your first priority is to look after yourself. Only if you are totally healthy wealthy and wise can you afford to be saving lost souls during this Neptune opposite Ascendant transit. If you are lonely and have low self-esteem or depression you must be especially careful not to have your heart broken by a lowlife with eyes on  your house and savings.

As mentioned at the beginning, this transit can bring your ideal partner. A loving marriage can become more romantic and spiritual. In its higher manifestations, Neptune opposite Ascendant transit can bring your soul mate and a spiritually enlightened romance. You may actually dream up your ideal partner and experience unconditional love. You may attract a nurse, doctor, musician or other entertainer. Perhaps Neptune manifests as someone with similar hopes and dreams or a very spiritual person.

  1. The transit sounds terrible!! What if the 7th house angle is ruled by Pisces , change anything? Surely this transit has ways of manifesting positivity?

    • Yes you’re right Esa. I started with it can bring your ideal partner but forgot to elaborate. I had added another paragraph at the ned, similar to the natal aspect.

      • More so than rulerships, it will be fixed star conjunctions and other aspects to your Descendant that will alter the manifestations.

  2. Hi Jamie – I get confused by these emails. Do I have something in my natal chart interacting with these transiting aspects, which is why I get these emails? I don’t have this particular aspect in my natal chart, but I am not aware of what is happening with the transits. Can you please clarify because I have no idea if this information applies to me or not. My chart info is: DOB 3/27/1981 born at 1:41am in Chapel Hill, NC (Orange County). Please and thank you so much in advance!

    • Hi Leah, sorry about the confusion. If there are no dates at the bottom of the post then it means these transits vary for each person. Everyone has a different Ascendant so will have this transit at different times in their lives. To find your current transits go to the astro.com Extended Chart Selection and select “transits” from the “Chart type” dropdown menu.

      • Ahh I didn’t even know about that section of astro.com. So cool! And thank you for clarifying. I am obsessed with astrology and have studied it for years, but it’s very complicated and I am always learning more. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I appreciate it. : )

  3. Jamie is so good, keep it up man…
    And I have that transit aspect right now, ASc is 11 degree Virgo, but have Neptune trine Asc natal, if that can make this transit maybe easier. since Neptune going often retro when I will be lifted for this transit?

  4. Thank you Jamie, this in my natal. Quite loose at 4 deg, in a kite with Chiron and Jupiter, opposite my Algol ascendant.

    Indeed my life has seen its share of nebulous and nefarious people who were somehow connected to me spiritually. The modus is subtle, disarming and theatrical. These tend to end in drama-filled “watershed” moments that reveal all the dirt that lay below the surface and their real intentions, which are very often unconscious to them but toxic for me. I have always read with some wonder as people complain about Saturn. In my life Neptune (and its negative themes) has been a much bigger problem and Saturn has often been my savior! But its not always bad, many times when I am in a solid jam, someone seems to emerge from nowhere, I can just as easily be the recipient of a random act of kindness.

    I have never partnered, I have never been able to completely trust my perceptions or go with my gut (a quincunx between my Sun and Moon doesn’t help). In fact as a child I could not see through the fog of it. Somewhere, nowhere, always, sometime, never etc. are places and times ruled by Neptune. The ACDC axis shows how you perceive the outside world. I could not see through those times and places (difficult to explain). Somehow (somehow is a process ruled by Neptune) I have spent my life honing the other senses like a blind man compensates for poor sight.

    At age 50 your first paragraph is spot on. I now keep a very wide gap between my own thoughts and those of others. I am susceptible to being a psychic “sink” and absorbing all sorts of toxins. Even in traffic, I must be careful not to “connect” with another driver, especially negatively. Neptune is currently transiting my 10th and strangely the more I let go, the better it gets!
    Careful of drugs and alcohol, this is a highly addictive aspect and that extends into the co dependent relationships, the drama and the games.

    Wish my icon didn’t look so angry. Sorry to ramble on, and thank you again.

  5. Have you seen the Sabine Symbol for 12°Virgo? Oh my! And what if it shows up in a Country Chart, or through Progressions? Im wrestling with this very set up in the Canadian Progressed Chart. Jamie, i feel like im in a lunatic asylum, im the lunatic, sane.. walking zombies everywhere, but they know much more than i care to admit. I’ve never been more terrified in my life… and i did it to myself.
