Neptune turns retrograde June 21

The planet ruling psychic ability, religion, compassion, creativity, dreams and many other things turns stationary retrograde June 21 at 18 degrees of Pisces, and will continue its retrograde November 27.

This will bring about more acute sensitivity on an inner level and we may be able to pick up on those things we don't perceive when Neptune is direct. We are more likely to be listening to our own inner voice during this time and creativity and psychic or intuitive abilities may be increased during this time. But, as Neptune turns stationary retrograde things could get more confusing for a time.
If transiting Neptune aspects a personal planet in your chart, you could lean toward becoming more self deluding, depressed, or overly idealistic. As Neptune is square Jupiter at this time, the delusion can be even more overblown. Others may deceive us as well. It is important to be as grounded as possible during these times if you are experiencing a Neptune transit like this, especially a harsh one. Neptune transits can go on for several years and if ever your feet need to be planted on firm soil it is now if you have such an aspect.
Hard Neptune transits often coincide with over idealized relationships, or relationships with those who are really not available for a variety of reasons. We may feel we have met our soul mate or the most perfect partner in the world to wake up and find things were not as we had believed, or been led to believe which leads to discouragement, depression and disenchantment.
Often when Neptune retrogrades we find out that our dreams are not based on reality and this generally occurs during the retrograde of a harsh transit in our charts. This can not only affect relationships but many other areas of our lives depending on what area of the chart Neptune is transiting. If you do not have a hard Neptune aspect, you need not be as concerned .
You will experience a hard Neptune transit if you have mutable planets in your chart-Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces at 19-15 degrees.
The positive Neptune aspects can lead to beautiful experiences, meeting someone who seems perfect and be a time of idealistic living.


  1. Neptune is the ruler of my natal Ascendant at 15 Pisces; now Neptune is transiting at 18 Pisces. What can you say about this? Thanks.

  2. I think it can be some type of personal confusion, change, change in appearance, or spiritual pursuits. Neptune rules illusion, delusion and confusion but it will not conjunct your 15 degree ascendant again. It will however reach 16 degrees toward the latter part of the year. Beyond this, I would have to see the entire chart.
