Moon Conjunct Neptune Transit

Moon conjunct Neptune can have us feeling emotionally confused.  Neptune can be idealistic and romantic, but the nature of Neptune is that it blurs boundaries and we might be seeing things that are not really there. There can be a real danger of wearing rose-colored glasses with this aspect.

This blurring of the boundaries can be good for creative work and intuition and empathy for others may be stronger at this time.

The Moon is related to our emotions, and our instinctive responses. It is associated with our nurturing instinct and mothers and women in general. The Moon moves very quickly, only remaining in a zodiac sign for about two and a half days, so the transits of the Moon are over quickly, lasting only a few hours usually.

Neptune is one of the outer planets, and therefore rather slow-moving. Neptune is sometimes called the higher octave of Venus, as it can indicate idealism, romanticism, self-sacrifice and a dreamy type of quality.

However, Neptune is also associated with deception or not seeing things clearly. Just as the planet Neptune is often obscured with clouds, when Neptune is involved, it can be hard to see things. This means we need to be wary when Neptune is in the picture. What are we not seeing? Are we wearing rose-colored glasses? Are we deceiving ourselves in some way or is someone else trying to do so?

Planets are conjunct when they are 0° apart (usually in the same sign). When looking at transits (as opposed to natal astrology) we usually allow an orb (allowance) of 1° so planets that are 0° to 1° degree apart are considered conjunct.

Conjunctions represent a blending of the energies of the planets involved. When the planets involved are complementary to each other, this is likely to work well. When the qualities of the planets involved are diametrically different from each other, then there is likely to be more tension involved.
