4:12 pm - SJ's Neptunian youth, LOL


So, here is my story....

First, lemme show you my chart; I'll just post a link to it so my chart isnt up in everyone's face, here:


Anyway, when I was a little baby, my mom says I was a terrible nurser; I would suckle for a minute and then stop and just look all around. I was more interested to see what else was going on in the general area than in eating. Soon as I was able to get around on my own, mom said I began to be a very fearful and yes, sensitive child.

I was afraid of wierd things, stuff that other toddlers wouldnt have even noticed. Mechanical sounds terrified me. We lived on a lake (Neptune, ha!), and our house was on a dirt road. ANY vehicle that came down that road headed for our house made me scream in terror. Certain birds I saw outside would freak me out. I was a poor eater and was thin as a rail and frequently sick. But the real sign that I was an HSP (or a Neptunian) was the panic attacks.

They started happening as I got a bit older. (probably around three years and up). I'd get a horrible feeling, and then panic. Mom didnt know what to do with me; often she would just sit down with me and hold me till I felt better. I got to where I could feel when one was coming, she said, and I'd wrap my arms around myself and say, "Mommy, its happening again!" And Lord dont let there be bad weather.....I was utterly terrified of storms.

I was hypervigilant and able to pick up on everyone's moods and emotional states very quickly, but as a small child you don't realize that....so often I found myself feeling everyone's feelings and yet I had no way to process that or separate myself from those emotions.

I got somewhat better with all this after I had my tonsils out. But thats my experience with Neptune as a child. I was just so wide open and with very few defenses. But even as an adult, I still get the Other and myself very tangled up.

On the positive side, I had a fascination with art and a talent from very early on. I've been drawing and painting since I was old enough to hold a crayon. Below is a link to a slideshow of my art on Photobucket, if you want to see. I also am a nurse, and that sensitivity has really been a blessing in that area.....well, a blessing and a curse.

Later in life, I became immersed in love of history and art, religion, and languages. I found my spiritual path and THATS where I found strength. I also cope by working hard to be close to nature and gardening....I do adore my garden and my herbs. I also cope by withdrawal.....when I am at work, I'm at work.....when I get home I have to have privacy and peace and quiet. For me, the rigors of my job and all the stress can usually be relieved by spending time with my daughter and my little menagerie of pets and plants. *smiles* I still have issues with panic attacks and depression, but I think I am on the right track all around.

3:22 pm - HSPs ?


Highly Sensitive People


Somehow yesterday I found this concept.....back in the nineties a lady Psychologist coined this term. According to her, 15 to 20 percent of the population fall into this category. AND there are other websites that introduce some coping mechanisms that might well be useful to us as Neptunians.

Might also be cool to have us look back at our own personal histories to the time in our lives when it became evident that we were very different in our perceptions. What have we learned over the years that would be useful to, say, our children?

3:12 pm - Some Links


I thought I'd post these links. Each page will have a good number of articles for your reading pleasure. Some of these websites are kind of new, which I was really happy to discover. The last one looks like an Eastern-type site. Sorry these arent really Neptune-specific, but still worth browsing through for morsels of wisdom.

11:03 am - Response to "Anyara" on the positive of Neptune

I think Neptune can be as maligned a planet as Saturn at times, though with
far less reason to be. Then again, I'm sure some Capricorn types wouldn't
agree with how I feel about Saturn. Good/bad, negative/positive, are all
matters of perspective. With that aside, I also feel as though planetary
energy exists on a sliding scale. Neptune perhaps has "good imagination" on
one side and "fantastical escapism" on the other side of one of her sliding
scales. Sometimes the positive end of the sliding scales are desirable,
although just as often its the midway point that we should strive for - as
the one side can just as often represent excess as it can positive. Saturn
can be a good father who will not let his child eat all the candy in the
store, but will allow a few pieces or he can be the bastard that beats the
daylights out of you for innocent mistakes. Likewise, Neptune can be the
catalyst to great universal breakthroughs (think Albert Einstien) or it can
be the well of alcohol and drug abuse that so many Neptune types fall into.
I think one of Neptune's scales has delusion at one end and awareness at the
other. Those with strong Neptunes (or who utilize their neptune energy)
have the ability for clarity beyond that of others, and likewise have much
more of a chance of going to the other extreme. The waters can be rough and
choppy, but they can also be calm and crystal clear. Of course the standard
good qualities of Neptune are good imagination, the desire to go to places
not yet visited and experience things not yet known, the places of the
imagination, the places of things that aren't necessarily false, but hidden
beneath the depths. Storytelling, creativity, understanding. I think
understanding is a big one in the realm of Neptune too. I think it's
Neptune's ultimate goal, to understand the way things work, the way humanity
and the universe, all the things beyond the SELF work. Sometimes the paths
are bad ones, but sometimes (think Einstein) again, are not. I know I keep
mentioning old Al, and without looking at his chart, all I know is that his
Sun and I think his Mars are in Pisces - and some may find other things in
his chart that aren't about Neptune that explain his life work but having
read many of his quotes, he strikes me as a very Piscean guy. Neptunian
people can be extremely intelligent as well, and often enough extreme
intelligence looks an awful lot like psychosis. My oldest son has Neptune
in the 1st, he also has Uranus on the ASC, and he was identified gifted at
the age of 9... and is a social outcast. Is that Neppy doing that, Uranus,
or a combination of both? Were it a roulette wheel, I'd put my coins on
Neptune. Without discrediting his Uranus, which may will him to be unique
and move forward I believe it's Neptune that gives him the ability to think
in such a way that he can form original thought patterns. Another
consideration of Nep, is that she cares. Not in the way that hints at Lunar
influence which is the mother caring for the child, or the Saturn type,
which is more patriarchal, but caring for EVERYTHING that there is in the
world. It's not egocentric, nor even close. It's caring the goes beyond
boundaries. Its sensitive. It *feels* so deeply that it can cause that
reflex to escape, to cover one's ears and eyes because its painful to
understand, or it can bring about enlightenment for those that dare to work
with it.

I could write forever on why Neptune isn't the bane of existence and why I
believe that a properly tended Neptune can offer understanding as no other
can, that understanding of our ultimate purposes in life, rather than the
humdrum, mundane, everyday purposes. I embrace my Neppy in the 1st, and I
embrace my Pisces Sun, and my Pisces Venus. It is true that Neptune can
bring you to the lowest of lows, but on the other side of the scale, she can
bring you to the highest of heights too.

Those are my 32 cents on Neptune. There's more of course... but I hope that
gives you an idea of what I think.

3:35 am - Anyara


I kind of went back and looked for references to this site, and didnt see but one.....I have to say, Anyara's articles on being a Neptunian really helped me.


Especially the one "Invisible Identity" from which I quote:

"Sometimes the best advice for a person with Neptune either on the Ascendant or conjoined with the Sun, would be: When any body analyses your personality - or interprets your astrological chart - think always first: That is not what I am like, this person may be seeing herself or himself in a mirror. Or he or she may be tuning into something else and thus speaking about my sister, my dog, my neighbor, or the person I just met. Thinking this way you avoid a lot of confusion. Then later on think for yourself what you really are like. And also whether there was something in the analysis that really was about you. Often you'll find that the interpreter really was, at least partly, talking about someone or something else, not about you."

It gets SO old, reading only bad stuff about Neptune influences in a natal chart. Or, getting the general feeling that Neptune is some kind of huge cosmic/karmic ball and chain we drag around. Depending on where you go on the internet, or what books you read, Neptunians are liars, puffed up with "glamour", avoidant personalities, martyrs, thieves, easily suggestible (gullible), paying a karmic debt of insensitivity from a past life, blah, blah, BLAH.

We are what we decide to be.

10:43 am - Good Neptunian Things


I saw a question that sounded like something I needed to explore....because Neptune has so many "negatives" associated with it, and I can kinda see how that is, but we, more than many others, NEED to work at looking at the bright side of things.

This was posted by Truth_Scriber:

"I was wondering if any of you have had success stories involving your Neptunian energy"

1) I'm psychic. Always have been. I was lucky to have some really great guides along the way who helped me turn it into a spiritual path and a discipline instead of a huge liability.

2) I'm artistic, and I know that the Neptunian influence has been a real driving force behind that.

3) I'm a nurse. And I have this knack for taking one look at someone and "seeing" their general condition....sick, well, in pain, bleeding internally, etc. Its been an incredible help. Many times I know something is wrong but can't put my finger on it, so I investigate further, and "wham"....they have an urgent issue.

Oh, I wanted to tell ya'll (yes I'm Southern)....that I have a separate astrology journal on LJ.....http://sjstars.livejournal.com/

Blessings to all,

4:35 am - Seeing the world through others eyes
skarven Hi:)
I'm a sagitarian woman with a jupiter-sun-neptune conjunction in late second house. I've had a lot of "who am I" - "what shall I become" - issues and have become very interested in astrology because of that. I've read a lot about my chart, but strangely not given this conjunction any thoughts until recently.

I have a lot of thoughts concerning neptune, but there was a special thing I really ment to write about here. Things connected to the empathy-trait.

It's not very static, but I'm in a sort of sensitive period at the moment. It's hard to explain because it's a bit strange and I haven't really figured it all out. The thing is that when I spend time with a person I sort of get inside the persons system. It's very hard to put the experience into words. I can't read their exact thoughts, but I get them like I was them, and then again distant enough to see that all these feelings and views are not mine at all. I'm still very much me and feel myself, but at the same time I see stuff through their eyes.

The past week I've had to hard experiences in that matter. I met a friend who at that moment was sort of consumed with a sort of perversity which she can't acknowledge to her self and that sort of controlled her at the time. The days after I felt sick, like the perversity and mental illness stuck to me, but not like I confused it with my own identity and feelings (I've experienced such confusions before - believing others feelings and views of life where my own, though it cleared up when I got away from the influence). Since I care a lot about my friend feeling something really distorted in her have been difficult for me to handle, but I tell my self that there is much more to her, that when I met her she was quite disturbed, and next time she might be much more in a healthy state of being. Even though I'm not very keen on seeing her at the moment even though she probably needs others now. When I get overwhelmed by her consuming views and stuff I really can't be the person she needs right now.

The second hard experience was with a man that had quite disturbing views of him, life and women. The hardest thing was that the women-part really got to me. Through his eyes I saw my self as a lower being. At the end of this meeting I got terrified because I understood that he could seriously hurt me without remorse because from his point of view there are the pure and there are whores, and whores are less than nothing, and even though he strives for high standards and morals in himself - these things doesn't count dealing with someone less than nothing.

This experience affected me in two ways. Intellectually I've been thinking about the danger that comes from crashing cultures. Since I've sort of seen things through him I understand his point of views and see the logic in it, though I personally disagree with his views. I also see how dangerous people with a very different background can be for me. I've got few problems spotting people who know they are doing, or want to do something evil (or brake their moral standards) to me, but when they themselves believe they're not doing anything bad I get judgment-problems that can get me into very unhealthy situations (I guess lucky Jupiter can't save me all the times - even though it probably does it a lot, and did concerning the guy). It's like I see the potential danger, but gets stupidly naive at the same time.

The other way it affected me is harder to deal with. Since I saw my self through him I feel rather dirty and as if I had some rotten soul or something. A bit hard to explain, but very unpleasant and bad for my self-image. But in another way I have my own point of view. His version of me doesn't fit me, but then again it's sort of stuck onto me and I have no idea how I shall rinse it off me. I guess it will pass naturally very soon, but I would like to know if there are some ways to rinse away such negative influences. It would be nice to have these crappy experiences and then do something right afterward so it's just a bad day, not a bad week.

My temper is very sagitarian. My own emotions passes quickly, but others feelings can get really sticky. The shitty thing is that I get more affected by the negative influences than the positive influences. But happy people do make me more happy at the time, and when my energy is strong I can influence other in a positive way instead of just being influenced by others. I love those times, but they're far from the rule. But it is my ideal state of mind (or whatever it's called).

Anyone having experienced similar things? Any ideas on how to rinse away unwanted influences?

:) skarven

9:58 pm - Intro

Hi, everyone.

Just found this community tonight.

A little bit about me astrologically: Neptune conjunct Sun in Scorpio in 2nd house (although Neptune is approaching 3rd house cusp in most systems, actually in 3rd house in Placidus system). Sun is at the focal point of a T-square involving Mars in Leo (11th house) and Saturn in Aquarius (5th house), with the Moon's nodes conjunct the Mars-Saturn opposition (North Node in 11th house and South Node in 5th house). If anyone wants to look at the chart as a whole, Nov 1 1962, 2:06 a.m., Bridgeport, CT, USA.

I scrolled through some entries and saw one about being frustrated with unreliable people, and having different standards for behavior that is considerate of people's feelings than most people seem to have. Amen to that!

I have been reading Liz Greene's Neptune and have found that it brings together so many issues that have been prominent in my life, especially within the last few years.

One thing I'm wondering is: have others found that emotional vulnerability and longing for intense interpersonal experiences has gotten more intense since turning 40? 

Looking forward to hearing from others and reading more archived posts.

5:14 pm - New Co-Moderator!!

Hello everyone,

This community has been neglected for awhile. :( My life has picked up (in a good way) and I am unable to maintain this community and post new information as I would like to. HOWEVER, I have someone who would love to do this - I would like to welcome a new mod marije who will pick up the slack. She is a neptunian, and also has been a graphic designer - working on a plan to redesign this community and get it hopping again. Welcome marije, and thanks for volunteering. :) I will still be in this community and posting on occasion.

7:34 pm - Scanners & Carrie -- Neptunians???

As a Neptunian, I've always loved the movies. I esp loved this movie. It's Scanners from 1980, David Cronenberg. And being that Neptune/Pisces [and even Cancer] is associated w/ Psychic powers and the Movies, I was wondering kind of Sign or astrological placement could bring about these kinds of telepathic powers:

10:27 pm - Noticing a Difference in Neptunians

I thought the similarities between Sun conjunct Neptune and Neptune conjunct ascendant were so identical, I thought them almost the same. I mean they are in many ways, but I just noticed something.Read more...Collapse )

How can I find meaning in my relationships with people. Its a funny thing when you have your own value system of what is considerate of other people and you find very few people actually are.

I only attract unreliable people. I can't seem to get anything back from them. They all treat me as if I'm disposable. Being nice and considerate has just caused me more problems than anything else. I'm very passionate, its the way I am, sometimes the only way I see to counter passionate disappoinment is to just become numb. I have no one to understand or understand me, so I take it out on myself. And nothing ever seems to change. Trying to keep friends exhausts me, I try hard all the time just to get a little something back. I give 95% of myself and they give 25%.

Friends, love is only in my head, outside of myself they are intellectual ideas, like limited warranties. How does one not become a complete hermit??????

Uranus is in my 11th house, my Venus is in Aquarius square my only water planet, Uranus. Plus being a Neptunian(Conjunct Ascendant,Venus Sextile, Moon, Mars, Saturn square) how can I bridge the gap?

don't mean to sounds whiney, just kinda of feeling trapped.

1:40 pm - *Waves to the other Neptunians*

I already know some of you from astrology but I'm new to this community.

Here's my chart, you'll see why I'm a Neptunian, although I'm Taurus Sun, Taurus Moon, Aries rising. I'm a very untypical Taurus in many ways.

My ruling aspect is that Mars in Pisces, 12th house. Also, Sun and Moon opposing Neptune in the 7th. Anything else? *G*

9:27 am - Greetings

I have never posted here before, but this has been on my mind for a while, and thought I'd try here:

Conjunction: Neptune 13. Sun 12. Mars 9. Sign: Sagittarius. 11th house.

I'm interested to know about this as a totality rather than as single aspects. And I'm guessing that since the sun is conjunct here along w/ another planet, then it's a very personal planet then? I've been a dreamer all my life now even if those dreams are merely distorted fragments of hallucination etc. So as based on this, I'd suppose that I can be considered to be rather neptunians, yeah?

Speaking of Neptune, one of the things that I need to mention is that Neptune & Sun are squared Pholu which is at 12 Pisces. And whatever squares or opposes our sun are traits that we reject. And what traits Pholu would symbolize exactly, I would have no idea, though I've heard that it does symbolize spiritual gifts and stuff. Otherwise, this conjunction is trined Saturn, Eris, & sextiled Pluto.

12:08 pm - Success Stories?

I was wondering if any of you have had success stories involving your Neptunian energy. What I mean is, have any of you successfully found ways to intergrate Neptunian energy into your daily life? It's a question for both people who have stressful and non-stressful aspects, but please list which ones are prevelant in your chart.

For me, I have been learning more about being a Neptunian for the past year or so and read a lot of different books and heard many discussions on what to do with it. I've been trying to become more adept in handling difficulties in a appropiate way. I'm working on one difficulty at at time.

I've started to come to terms with the "putting on different faces" and realize that its a phenomenon that will happen when meeting people. Its so nearly an unconscious act,I have to keep reminding myself on the implications of just letting it happen. Also I have been trying to work on dealing with Moon square Netpune and not letting dissappointments thow me into the lake of despair. I have created this lake, so I try to not jump on in when I'm hurt, for what ever the reason. I realize giving in just exasperates the problems and prevents me from coming to a solution. I used to think dissappointment will put me in a depressive state and that is a normal state and that I can see my greater problems better. But in fact, that is unrealistic. Oh and I also have been trying to see how I can seperate my squares, as in all of the squares I have with Neptune are the same ones that square my ascendant, its double trouble.

Your thoughts are appreciative.

I don't have any planets in Pisces or Neptune conjunct my Ascendant.. just aspects to my natal Neptune in Cap. It's opposing my Sun/Merc/Venus conjunction in the 11th.. and I also have a 12th house Mars. I think it's a weird position for Mars..don't fully understand it yet. Anyway, that's me. Just joined and I wanted to introduce myself :]

p.s. I'm interested in that 11:11 stuff too. I've been trying to find information since it started happening to me back in '03.. only I see 1:11. A lot of websites say it's your 'guardian angels'.. who knows.
