Culture and music are also governed by Neptune, this planet changes signs only every 14 years, creating generational influences to the collective who are born under the same Neptune transit.

Neptune is empathetic, idealistic, and creative. Mysticism, dreams, psychic sensitivity, and all things ethereal are all associated with this planet. As Neptune tends to see things through a rosed-colour glass, it is also a planet of naivety, trickery, deception, addiction to drugs and alcohol are some of Neptune’s more negative aspects as its ethereal flare is prone to escapism.

Slow-moving Neptune takes approximately 165 years to complete a full cycle around the 12 zodiacs. So, when Neptune change sign, it is a big deal astrologically, its influences are felt collectively and signal collective advancement.
