SUN OPPOSING NEPTUNE
This aspect depicts conflict which, when resolved, results in growth. Oppositions show a tug of war between opposing forces. If they are resolved, then the oppositions become the backbone and strength of the chart.
It is important to understand that the Sun rules masculine energy, the identity, ego, individuality, power and pride, while Neptune is in-tune. Think of Neptune as being intuitive, in-tune and tuning in like a Tune-Ah-Fish, since Neptune is the ruler of Pisces (the fish).
The Sun opposing Neptune reminds me of the person who always thinks they are being picked on. It always seems to be someone else's fault but yet they are always getting the blame. The problem is the individual creates imaginary problems where no problems exist, and then feel singled out to face unfair obstacles and penalties. Therein lies the blame game. Needless to say, there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding. The individual with this aspect in their natal chart may feel that early in life they were singled out for discipline, and responded with a defensive attitude toward your teachers or parents.
In relationships that should be deep, such as in private, romantic, religious and/or spiritual there is a distortion of what the relationship is about because the relationship is typically one-sided. Perceptions are clouded, rose-colored, smoke colored or its just smoke and mirrors. The past is also a problem because Neptune rules the past. The individual needs to be more objective.
There are too many fantasies and way too much wishful thinking. Since relationships are affected, then the individual ends up being deceived or deceiving others. So here we have the keyword 'deception'. This is also a very unreliable aspect, leaving the individual unreliable in their actions and promises. Illusions are certainly a problem.
I strongly advise the individual with this aspect in their natal chart NOT TO drink alcohol or consume any recreational drugs because they can easily become an addict. One drink can affect this individual as if it were three drinks. The imagination alone is enough without adding drugs and alcohol to the mix. If this aspect is showing up as a transit for you, make certain that you do not engage in any mind-altering practices or consume drugs and/or alcohol during the transit.
Neptune naturally rules Pisces and wherever Neptune or Pisces shows up, there is the possibility of victim behavior. Those with the Sun opposing Neptune will often times say they are inspired by a "Higher Force" when in reality they are just inspired by themselves as being that higher force because of their desire to be important.
These individuals can easily be taken advantage of by those who engage in deceptive practices that might include spiritual, astral, religious or psychic practices. Those with this aspect should NOT take part in seances, trances or any type of astral experience that could influence or undermine their confidence.
Sometimes these individuals allow others to tell them how to live because of their own lack of confidence. Still, the individual has a pleasing nature and would not dream of upsetting others. The individual would rather cover-up than upset.
The challenge is to use their artistic and sensitive nature for the benefit of other people without losing the self. Spending time alone could prove helpful.
This aspect is periodically challenged by problems difficult to understand and diagnose.
In maturity one must learn to accept responsibility and meet challenges not always so clearly defined. Now click the graphic for your Sun Sign below and go read today's Daily Horoscope, plus your Monthly, Yearly and Generational Horoscope.
