NEPTUNE PRINCIPLES AND OCTAVES
Neptune in astrology relates to spiritual consciousness and the idea that everything is a part of everything else. It is associated with karma and the law of cause and effect. What you do to others, will also be done to you. Neptune relates to consciousness raising and developing our sixth sense of extrasensory perception also referred to as the third eye. Neptune likes to dissolve boundaries stretching reality to the limits and beyond. There is a desire to purify and perfect everything. In the next two paragraphs I will discuss the higher and lower octaves of Neptune.
The higher octave of Neptune represents spirituality and self-sacrificing love such as Jesus had when he sacrificed himself on the cross so that we could be saved. He even forgave his enemies, as he said that they didn’t know what they were doing. There is a real desire to help the poor, the sick, the needy and under-privileged. Hospitals, institutions, prisons, doctors, nurses, psychologists, and spiritual people such as monks are all associated with Neptune. Neptune rules the imagination, art and music in all forms, such as, painting, sculpture, photography, the opera, and the ballet.
The lower octave of Neptune involves escape from reality through drugs, alcohol, food, or other addictions. Feelings of depression and doom can lead to suicide. The wounded, the sick, those in severe pain, the mentally ill, and retarded are all under Neptune’s domain. Theft, deception, criminal activity, and kidnapping all are associated with the lower octave of Neptune.
