Sun Conjunct/Quincunx Neptune ~ Devoted Idols

Sun conjunct or quincunx Neptune people are prone more than most to dissolving! They have great difficulty holding onto their ego. The boundaries between themselves and others are blurry and they absorb the collective unconsciousness like a sponge. These subjects can be prone to escapism and all forms of addictions. This is because their physical sensitivity to the real world around them is so great. They long to merge with the great spirit and feel that euphoria of oneness once again.

Sun conjunct Neptune in particular can suffer health problems due to their lack of “armour” from external penetration, psychically or physically. (Frida Kahlo) They can be extremely self-sacrificial, devoting themselves entirely to a person, to a cause or to their art. The merging of solar logic with the great poetic imagination that Neptune brings can create the most uplifting and enlightening art or music. And of course, Neptune rules the Cinema, with many Neptunian stars being ripe for projection.

Devoted Idols

The creative essence of the Sun combined with Neptune’s abundant imagination can make the subject strive for idol status. They have huge dreams of being up there with the stars for all eternity, a way to merge with the source. Sun quincunx Neptune can add a surprising spark of temper and electricity. But like a slippery eel, they are able to slither out of their misdemeanours unscathed. This exotic mix makes them glamorous and rather flash, therefore their failings are often overlooked.

Sun Conjunct Neptune

Louis Pasteur (09′) combined free creative imagination with methodical science. He became famous for inventing “Pasteurization”, a very Neptunian process where bacteria is dissolved using heat (the Sun!). George Melly (50′) The drink loving Jazz-personality and journalist surrendered to his ailing health, he said his dementia was like an LSD trip and thought his deafness was a benefit as he didn’t have to put up with boring conversations. Frida Khalo (59′) the Neptunian artist par excellence, was preparing to be a doctor before a metal handrail from a bus crash cruelly pierced her body. She suffered multiple injures, her already polio effected leg smashed to smithereens. She endured a series of operations throughout her life, but she painted her way to recovery. On her devotion to her errant husband she wrote Diego in my urine – Diego in my mouth – in my heart, in my madness, in my sleep.” No boundaries there then! Carrie Fisher  Spend most of her adult life battling drug addiction until 1997 where she had a psychotic episode related to her bi-polar disease. Other famous Sun/Neptunians are self confessed sex addict Michael Douglas, Buddy Holly and K D Lang.

David Beckham soccer player with pop-idol appeal. David is known as much for his dandy fashion sense and model good looks as his inspirational lightening kicks on the pitch. His game is sometimes overshadowed by his temper tantrums, but always quickly forgiven by fans owing to his brilliance. He made his dream come true by playing for the team he idolised. Russell Crowe sensitively portrays a wide range of characters in a typical Neptunian chameleon-like fashion. He has absorbed such different roles as a mentally ill mathematician, a tormented whistleblower and a boxer. Russell also famous for his gladiatorial temper when his sacred privacy is invaded.

Jimmy Hoffa: Powerful and controversial labor union leader. He was zealous in his defence of the downtrodden manual workers. Through coercion and force he ensuring they earned wages equal to skilled workers.

  1. I always used to wonder why no-one has been impressed by my “Scorpionicness” since I was an angry teen. After all, I have Sun, Venus, South Node, and Neptune, all in Scorpio and all conj. w/in orb (widest is 5 deg. the others are all w/in 1 deg.). I recently discovered that it’s because all my Scorpio planets are in the 12th House…kind of takes the sting from the Scorp to the outside world (not to me though). And Neptune…I am realizing how I’ve underrated it’s influence all my life. Good and bad.
    Ironically this is due to the Sag Asc, but I don’t know what I’d do w/o it!!! lol

  2. I have Sun conjunct Neptune conjunct Mercury, which is not only the birthchart ruler, but also the ruler of the first decan of Sag where my Sun is…

    Frida Kahlo for years now has always been such an inspiration…

    About the addiction thing: I’ve made the experience, of being able to pretty much get addicted to almost anything… (from sex to sports to Facebook to TV to alcohol, cannabis and sweets)… but my main drug still is love…

    Neptunic greetings from the Andes,


  3. here is a very neptunian picture, since with sun in the 12th house and sun-neptune the father is absent or mysterious i thought i would upload this picture,

  4. yep sun conjunction neptune is identical to my sun in the 12th house, the 12th house is also ruled by neptune 😀

    1. Dear Nick
      You might be interested to know that I am an astrologer – psychological in orientation – specializing in all matters related to the twelfth house and all the various subjects which converge there. I also host a forum site especially dedicated to this house, where people with planets in this house can share and exchange thoughts and experiences. And also, astrologers working on client’s charts can participate in discussions.

      You would be very welcome to join.

      Take a look at my website:

      Best wishes, Cate

  5. My 12th house sun is identical to the sun conjunction neptune, I can relate to everything this article said

  6. I have Neptune forming an aspect with my Sun with a 0.08 deg orb.
    I guess that’s pretty CLOSE and trust me, I feel Neptune’s effects on my personality; losing of boundaries, confusion, hypersensitivity, living in one’s own dream land etc.

    I also have Sun sextile Pluto with a 2.22 degree orb, and I guess that kind of “grounds ” me? But I do get what is said about Sun-Pluto sextile being “sly”. I get that quite a bit.

    My Ascendant also makes aspects to Neptune and my sun(less than 3 degrees).Most people say that I appear confident(even arrogant). Most often times, I find myself being pushed to the leadership position. I thought that maybe that was Saturn’s doing, but I guess the Sun-Asc aspect could have a hand in it?

    My Asc also makes a trine aspect to Neptune though. And that can make people ,paradoxically,want to “protect” me or whatever. I’ve actually seen this happen, even with those younger than I. I don’t know what vibes Neptune aspecting my Asc gives off, but its not a particularly “I can take care of myself” one.

    I also have Jupiter-Sun conjunction.But it’s a wider aspect of 5.32
    and so I don’t really pay attention to it as much.

    Most of the asteroids,unlike my personal planets, make very close orbs with my Sun i.e Lilith(sextile), Juno(trine), Ceres(sextile),Chiron(quincunx), Eros(sextile).

    So , could that mean that these asteroids could have more “weight” than my supposed “personal” planets(venus, Mercury, moon, Mars) do?

    I need some clarification on this.

    1. Most of the asteroids,unlike my personal planets, make very close orbs with my Sun i.e Lilith(sextile), Juno(trine), Ceres(sextile),Chiron(quincunx), Eros(sextile).

      I think they would in relation to your Sun only, so these asteroids, Neptune and Pluto will influence your ego and sense of self more than the inner planets. The Sun in your chart is extremely important but then when you get to other facets of your makeup, you’ll be looking at whole new set of influences for each.

  7. I see that Bill Gates and Warren Buffet with this aspect truly absorbed the collective unconsciousness like a sponge, and that money was an addiction but how in the world will they merge with the great spirit?

  8. @carmilla5
    Sun/Neptune conj in Scorpio with Pisces asc just to add more of that fishy nature! Lucky I’m a Scorp with all that Neptunian energy I need some Scorpio backing!!
    Healing & spirituality from a very young age so much so that at 18 when my mother, a Sun/Moon in Pisces died, I went out to become a spiritualist wanting to channel dead people! Astrology followed. Love if beauty, nature & creativity very strong. Don’t do drugs, occasional drinker but know I have very addictive nature mostly sweet things & my iPhone!!!
    My father also has this placement in Virgo & certainly he’s lights on no one home sort if father. Sister has Sun in 12th so I belong to a very strong Neptunian family!

  9. Susan Hayward: a cancer sun on my part of sickness but Chiron the key is almost 30 degrees pisces where Uranus and Jupiter are now. Don’t have her birth time yet. Can the dead speak, apparently so and not a bad connection. I had body reactions through all of this. You don’t want to know… peace…

  10. and Finally, I listened to the end of this channeling. My 1st. I noted it was done in Moscow (politics of my family of origin)on my last birthday May 14th 2010 (May 14th 1944 6:20 am Van. BC) so my solar return, for the reason that, the no. 9 energy was happening that week-end of the taping. This new apt. is 108. They spoke of this healing of 9 for us all – beginning in 1987 which was a significant year for me as i moved into the rooming houses of an attraction I had not seen for 20 years who owned the place. The tape said your health has improved since then and yes, addictions subdued, quit smoking, quit toking as I and friend worked on it all. I put it down to yoga growth. It’s like faith restored. It’s kind of like a clearing as well as a New Beginning!!!!!! Sorry I don’t know how to do links but it is Astrology community and under advanced spirituality section the channeling is spoken of.
