The Neptune In The Signs.

clear.gif (807 bytes) Because Neptune spends about 14 years in each sign, the meanings do not have a distinct personal meaning (except through distinguishing groups of people from groups of people born in other Neptune signs. They do, however, have a distinct personal meaning in relation to the Houses and Aspects.

See also: Planets In The Signs for a list of other planets in the signs.

The dates are approximate, partly because Neptune goes out and back in a sign during periods of retrograde. For a given human, there are some people with these configurations that we will never meet! The time it takes to complete its journey around the sun is approximately 168 years!

While such planets do not have a distinct personal meaning for people born in the group, they do have a personal meaning for all of these people in the group.

The keyword for Neptune is to refine

  • transcendence
