Moon trine Neptune must be one of the most romantic, poetic, idol-making aspect one can have. It’s not surprising that there are a few matinee idols listed below then. The unreality and glamour of film lends itself so well to the Moon and Neptune. The trine makes it even more fantastical, spectacular and out of this world. This is also an aspect found in artists and designers as it seeks to beautify and refine the world around it.
The main thing with Moon trine Neptune is that it wants to merge with its surroundings. Their boundaries are so thin that they can feel the harshness of the 3D world a little too acutely. Sometimes they may need to smooth the edges with alcohol or drugs.
Moon trine Neptune can become extremely devoted to their lover, but they need to be careful their longing to merge doesn’t leave them with no sense of self whatsoever. The natives do best when they put this great devotion into an all-consuming passion, Ie; An artistic project, spiritual practice or best of all, working to transform the lives of the sick and needy.
Moon trine Neptune wants to make things as perfect as possible, so perfect that it looks quite surreal against the backdrop of the real world. In relationships they need to guard against putting their partners on a pedestal. Their chosen god or goddess only has to slip a tiny bit and the disappointment is palpable. This insidious Neptunian dissolving can seriously erode a partnership over time.
Moon Trine Neptune Natives
Rudolph Valentino (02’) lost his father aged 11 and was brought up spoilt and mollycoddled by his mother. He was troublesome at school and a drifter as a youth. He had a scandalous friendship with an heiress who during their time together shot her ex-husband.
Valentino was forced to leave town to avoid further controversy. He found it hard to break into acting at first, due to his Latin looks which were not fashionable at the time. Valentino gained a reputation as a bit of a diva, scandal seems to follow him everywhere, divorce, bigamy trails and bad debts. Eventually he made it in films, women loved him but the male audience distrusted his exotic looks.
Valentino was seen as a threat to the butch, all American man. His masculinity was called into question due to such things as the use of pomade in his hair, his dandy-esque clothes and an ultra-romantic style of seduction. (Er, that’s just called being Italian…).
In true Neptune style though, Valentino’s sexual orientation was a bit of a mystery. Two of his wives and one of his partners were known to have had lesbian affairs which fuelled speculation that Valentino was gay and that his relationships were “Lavender marriages”. However most biographers agree that it’s likely that Valentino was actually straight. He died very young at 31, his youth and good looks forever preserved on celluloid.
