When is Neptune retrograde in 2024? 🗓️

  • From July 2 to December 7, 2024, in Pisces: During Neptune's retrograde in Pisces, our understanding of aspirations and hopes deepens. It's a period conducive to creativity, the expression of art. However, our emotional fragility can trigger doubts and instability. These moments help us connect our dreams to reality, thus fostering our evolution. Meditation can be a valuable tool for this introspection.
  • From September 1, 2024, to January 30, 2025, in Taurus: Uranus retrograde in Taurus makes us more hesitant about change. It's time to consolidate existing projects rather than start new ones. This period prompts us to reevaluate our values, financial assets, investments, and reconsider our relationships. We may feel the need to distance ourselves from certain people or, conversely, to create new connections.

Neptune retrograde lasts for about 158 days, or just over 5 months of the year. This planetary motion offers food for thought when it comes to our dreams and ideals. It does what is necessary to separate dreams from real life and makes us realize exactly what is possible 💪. When the movement begins, it symbolizes a time of connection between spirituality and inspiration.

This influence of Neptune remains quite moderate. Allowing us to anchor ourselves in the present, this period, from mid-year to the end of the year, is also a great springboard for expressing our artistic talents. Let's use the period of Neptune retrograde to make good use of the energies brought by the planet. Unlike other planets like Pluto retrograde or Saturn retrograde, Neptune brings about more subtle changes. This long period of the year allows us to take the time to focus on our ambitions. Helping us to stay in the real world and to move forward, this phase positively engages the future and refuses in any case to brood over the past.

What happens when Neptune is retrograde?

Astrologically, Neptune retrograde is often seen as a period of reflection, introspection, and questioning. Neptune is associated with areas such as imagination, intuition, spirituality, illusion, and deep emotions 🥴. When it is retrograde, it is often advisable to step back from these areas and re-evaluate the aspects of our lives that Neptune governs.

Neptune retrograde can expose illusions or fantasies we've clung to, and encourage us to see things more clearly and objectively. It's an excellent time to explore our inner world, deepen our spiritual understanding, and work on our personal development.

However, it's important to note that the effects of Neptune retrograde can vary from person to person, depending on its position in the natal chart and the aspects it forms with other planets. Astrology is a complex and subjective practice, and interpretations can vary according to different schools of thought. It's always best to consult a professional astrologer for a more precise, personalized interpretation.

What effects does Neptune retrograde have on us?

Neptune helps us to better understand our aspirations, our dreams and hopes. During this period, our creativity is at its best, especially in areas which concerns music, writing and works of art 🎨. This phase can be very beneficial because it invites us to immerse ourselves in our thoughts. It proposes to use one's sensitivity to get to know oneself better. Use this very long phase to take care of yourself, and you’ll feel so much better when the planet finds its direct trajectory.

The backwards motion of Neptune will see us reconsider our dreams and analyze how we can use them in our own life path. The period can also help us make the right choices in terms of ambition or aspiration. It will aid us in finding a more realistic path and keeping our feet on the ground.


Unlike other planets, such as when Pluto or Saturn is retrograde, Neptune, on the other hand, gives off more subtle changes. This period of time allows you to take the time to turn towards your ambitions. Helping to remain realistic and move forward, this phase positively engages the future and refuses to brood about the past.
