Why Is Planet Neptune So Important In Astrology?

Commonly known as the “Big Blue Planet”, Neptune plays a prominent role in the world of astrology and has an effect on you every single day, depending on its location in your natal chart. Want to learn more about Neptune? Our very own astrologer, Susan Taylor, spills this fascinating planet's biggest secrets, from its symbolism to its mythology!
Contents:

With an orbit of 4.495 billion kilometers, the frozen planet Neptune is furthest from the Sun(discounting Pluto). Its diameter is four times that of the Earth (49,500 kilometers), and it takes 165 years to complete a singular orbit of the Sun. Neptune is a gaseous planet, and has a mass that is 17 times bigger than the Earth’s, despite it consisting almost entirely of hydrogen and helium.

Symbolically in mythology, Neptune is known as the God of the Oceans

Known as Poseidon in Greek mythology, the Roman deity Neptune is god of the sea and navigators. He is both the son of Saturn, and brother of Jupiter and Pluto. According to mythology, Saturn devoured Neptune because he was jealous of ability, but was forced to regurgitate him following a battle between Saturn and Jupiter. As a result, Saturn lost control of the world and it was divided between Neptune and his two brothers- with Neptune taking ownership of the oceans.

Neptune is depicted with long, wavy hair and a beard in mythology. He is seen to wield a mighty trident and travels the seas on a chariot driven by seahorses.

The reasons why Neptune is so essential in astrology: It's the bringer of emotion

Neptune is the planet that controls our dreams, ideas, beliefs and helps us to embrace or warn off our feelings. It is capable of making us more or less receptive to the emotions of others according to its position and relationship with the other planets.

When in a negative position, it can cause unhealthy dependencies, such as alcoholic or drug addictions. In comparison to its fellow planets, it is especially slow, meaning it has a tendency to stay in zodiac signs for long periods of time and exert its influences for years on end.
