Transit Neptune in Astrology
Transit (moving) Neptune travels slowly, spending many years in one sign. The aspects it makes last for up to six months, and transit Neptune through a house can last for years. Transit Neptune can show areas of confusion, where you may see some things "dissolve" from your life, and where you can have greater spiritual awareness.

Transit Neptune in the Houses
Transit Neptune in the 1st House
When transit Neptune is in your 1st house, you’re more sensitive to your surroundings, emotionally, spiritually, intuitively, and physically. You’re more imaginative, idealistic, and charming. You want change in your life, and if you know what you want, you can figure out how it aligns with your purpose in life; if you don’t know what you want, you can wander and feel insecure.

Transit Neptune in the 2nd House
When transit Neptune is in your 2nd house, you can have a hard time being responsible with your finances, and may not pay attention to where it’s all going.

This can be a good time to make money through the arts, feet, water, or the metaphysical.

Transit Neptune in the 8th House
When transit Neptune is in your 8th house, you may give of yourself, your possessions, or your finances too easily during this transit.

Transit Neptune to Natal Moon
With transit Neptune conjunct your natal Moon, you must be careful of whom you associate and spend time with. Neptune is a chameleon, and when it’s conjunct your Moon, you mirror the people that are in your life. Chances are, if you’re behaving badly, you need to make some new friends. Surrounding yourself with stable, positive people will help make this transit smoother. You’re very sensitive to people’s emotions and to your environment, picking up subtle energy shifts.

With transit Neptune square or opposite your natal Moon, your intuition can easily lead you down the wrong path. With Neptune, it can be difficult to see the reality of situations and not the illusions Neptune likes, which can make any decisions difficult and make it harder for you to figure out which way you’re going. Your conscious and subconscious mind can blend together, causing you to have a hard time understanding the line between what’s real and what’s in your head. You’re energetically open, so you soak up other people’s moods – and problems. This can make it even more difficult on you, as you feel other people’s problems as if they’re your own, which in turn makes it difficult to sort through your own issues. There can be a tendency to want to escape, so if you go down that path, be careful of what you’re running with and to. If you can deal with the energy, you can be incredibly compassionate and tap into mystical energies with ease. Don’t withdraw into yourself too much, and try to remain as grounded as you can, keeping stable people around you and a stable routine to keep your healthy.
