Neptune is an outer planet of our solar system and is the ruler of the zodiac sign of Pisces under modern astrology principles. It rules over our subconscious mind, our dreams, illusions, psychic ability, spirituality and fantasies. It brings about confusion and disorientation in our lives.
Every year, Neptune the outer planet goes retrograde for about 6 to 7 months. And it mostly happens during the summertime. When Neptune is retrograding it is not that potent as when the other two outer planets of Pluto or Uranus go retrograde. However things around does not seem to be coherent during the period. It makes us to question our own desires and wishes. It slowly diminishes our limits in life and our right brain is made to function to its fullest potential.
Like most of the inner and outer planets, Neptune also goes retrograde every year. This period helps us to self-reflect and reconsider our ambitions towards a more practical and realistic one.
