Sun Opposite Neptune Natal and Transit

Sun Opposite Neptune TransitSun opposite Neptune in the natal chart makes you a very sensitive and caring person. You can have some insecurities or inferiority complexes but can project a more confident outer appearance.

Not naturally competitive, you often shy away from conflict as a way of protecting your sensitive ego. You are more susceptible to being weakened by aggression or abuse. If you feel threatened, you may use other tactics to avoid ego battles or power plays. Such tactics may include deception, fraud, lies, and other subversive or underhand tactics.

You may even find that you can win ego contests by using non-direct methods. However, worrying about being found out will eventually erode your self-confidence and leave you feeling weak or discouraged. Being as upfront and direct as you can reduce the risk of being misunderstood.

It is important that when you do go through periods of discouragement that you do not become dependent on things that artificially boost your confidence. We all need a crutch sometimes but remember you are more sensitive and susceptible than most to mind-altering substances. You may also have to take extra precautions to avoid infection and contamination.

You are likely to experience some strange events or become involved in mysteries or scandals. You may be a naturally suspicious person which is healthy as this is a defense mechanism against being taken advantage of. This counters your tendency to over-idealize others or to be over-sympathetic and adopt all the stray dogs in town.

A better way to develop a healthy ego is to master your creative or spiritual gifts. Compassion and idealism are your strong points which can lead to confident self-expression in careers involving politics, human rights or charities. More creative talents include music, writing, poetry, dance and fashion.

Sun Opposite Neptune Transit

Transiting Sun opposite Neptune makes you more susceptible to confusion and deception which can lead to insecurity and discouragement. If you can avoid ego conflicts and retreat to a safe place, then this is a good time for developing your creative, spiritual, and charitable nature.

If you cannot avoid dealing with the harsh realities of life then you need to take some precautions to avoid loss and disappointment. You are likely to feel scared of competition or dealing with assertive people.

Your weakened defenses can attract sneaky people who try to take advantage of your kindness and compassion. Then there are the tricksters, charlatans, and others trying to sell you things that you do not need or that do not exist.

If it sounds too good to be true, then it is. Learn to say no and walk away. Agree to nothing and do not sign anything. Be wary about starting new relationships or at least delay any commitments. Most importantly, be very clear to yourself and others about your intentions. There can be no gray areas, only yes or no. Any deception, underhand tactics, or lying on your part will be like digging a bigger hole for yourself.

If you do face disappointment and discouragement, then it will be tempting to escape the harsh realities of life through mind-altering substances. Just remember you are more susceptible to addiction and overdose, as well as being ripped off.

    • Yes, this birthday eclipse will highlight Saturn square Neptune but look at this in combination with the September 16 lunar eclipse and things look better. It is near your Saturn but tightly trine your Jupiter. You will have Moon trine Jupiter transit and Sun sextile Jupiter transit for six months.

  1. I’m sorry, I don’t understand how the moon and sun transits will last for 6 months?

    • This is because they come as an eclipse. You will see under each transit description I say it can apply to moon phases. 2 weeks for a full moon, 4 weeks for a new moon. 6 months for eclipses.

  2. Thank you, some positivity at last!
    I was worrying about my 10 Virgo sun.
    Have only just survived the last few years with having a Libra ascendant, Capricorn IC and 16 Aries moon!!

  3. Looks like a challenging number of days, with sun transits lasting 2 days and we had a sun Sq. Saturn yesturday

    • Yep, this ties into the solar eclipse opposite Saturn square Neptune. It could last a lot longer than a few days for some.

  4. Johnny Cash had Sun Opposition Neptune exact…I do as well. This description fits me well. Thank you.

  5. Neptune passed back and forth, back and forth, opposite my natal Sun from about 2001 to 2004. During this time, my whole life dissolved.
    I was forced into early retirement and all the financial plans I’d made just didn’t quite fit with my new situation.
    Looking back, I can see that many of my reactions during that time were rather muddle-headed. And I think I was karmically meant to be where I am now, and just didn’t make adequate plans for it all.
    Eventually, just when I had the time to finally fix up my dream home, I had to sell it. Got a very good price for it, though.
    I made a new friend who turned out not to be who he seemed. He told a lie about me to a group of acquaintances, and to my shock and disbelief they believed him and not me. So my social life disintegrated to a degree as well. Long-standing friendships were dissolved by deaths, too.
    Spiritually, I felt I made huge progress. And my irritation with people who got their aggressive / assertive reactions mixed up FINALLY taught me to stand up for myself – quietly and calmly.

  6. I feel like having the sun opposite a planet is like having the sign rules by that planet as an ascendant except you get more of that sign’s negative traits …

  7. My old comment up there seems to assume that transiting Neptune being opposite natal Sun has a similar effect to tr Sun opposing natal Neptune. Except that tr Neptune is around for a long, LONG time.
    Is this true, Jamie?

  8. Jamie, I have natal Sun (28.38 degrees Pisces) opposition Neptune (3 degrees Libra). And now transit Sun is conjunct my natal Neptune. I sleep a lot, am vaguely fearful and somehow hopeful, and I cannot touch alcohol for fear of a loss of balance. I have never noticed this transit before. I’d like it to be gone, for there is also a creepy edge to it. Is this weird?

  9. My birthday is on 6th June…Have this opposition in my natal chart. Let me know would this year bring clarity to my ordained life. A Deflected soul
