Solar Return Chart MOON-NEPTUNE aspect

 Moon in aspect to Neptune in Solar return chart can show increased sensitivity to life's subtleties.

 While Pluto-Moon contacts show a greater insight into psychological influences, manipulative games, and a need for self-control, Neptune-Moon contacts indicate a greater sensitivity to feelings and needs that are not expressed openly yet bind us all. There are both negative and positive manifestations suggested by Neptune aspects to the Moon. 

Negatively, you can be misinformed or even lied to, especially if someone is actively trying to deceive you. However, it is more likely that you will deceive yourself when there is someone important in your life whom you do not truly want to understand. 

This other person may be a family member or someone you are emotionally involved with. Neptune's house position may give you a clue as to his or her identity. If someone's actions mystify you, malting you feel the relationship is insecure, it's very likely that his or her commitment is weak, and you do not have a realistic assessment of this person. Quite possibly, you do not want to know the truth because it might be more threatening than the mystery. 




So you allow the situation to remain clouded and do not challenge inconsistencies. Since much is left unsaid and assumed, you try to fill in the gaps with your expectations rather than realistic assessments. Disillusionment is al-ways built on dreams and fantasy rather than the truth. You don't see things as they really are, but only as you hope they would be. This continuing lack of accurate information leads to further confusion, and is compounded by internal emotional estrangement. You stop listening to your intuitive self. You cease to be in touch with what you really feel. Anxiety and excessive worry can be signals that your perceptions are not an accurate reflection of reality. It is perhaps fair to say that dreams and hopefulness were never meant to augment unrealistic expectations. This may represent a misuse of this newfound sensitivity. 

Moon-Neptune aspects are meant to symbolize intuitive insights, spiritual ideals, and one's greater sensitivity to the commonalities we share. We all suffer from human frailty; Neptune symbolizes our ability to identify with others, and see their failings as well as our own with compassion. True understanding supersedes any judgmental attitudes and paves the way for a meaningful exchange. Idealism and putting others on a pedestal diminish realistic achievements which might have been accomplished in spite of human weakness. Idealism and unrealistic expectations are defenses used to avoid facing frailties and humanness we do not wish to see in ourselves and 
others. 

Positively, Moon-Neptune aspects imply connections; connections to each other and to the Universe as a whole. We can foster and improve these connections by understanding, accepting, and helping each other to progress as a whole toward a better existence and higher consciousness. This is a good time to accept people as they really are, weaknesses and all. You will probably be involved in situations which give you the opportunity to increase your understanding or insight into others through forgiveness. As long as you do not make demands or have unrealistic expectations of others, you should be able to retain honest emotional contacts with those around you. 
You may actually care for someone who is ill or disabled, or you could simply care for another person more than you care for yourself  and your own welfare. Moon-Neptune aspects are a sign of self-sacrifice. It is common to see this aspect in the charts of new mothers. The demands of caring for an infant involve a certain amount of self-sacrifice. If you work full-time to put your spouse through school, you might also have this aspect. 

Self-sacrifice does not necessarily mean martyrdom. One is the act of selfless giving, while the other can be an exaggerated, un-necessary act of self-denial. Moon-Neptune aspects in the solar return can indicate that you are able to help others because you truly understand their situation and want to help. Interpreting Neptune aspects in the context of martyrdom makes you a victim. 

This is a time when you are able to handle emotional uncertainty. 
You accept relation-ships which are not clearly defined, and you are able to give without a guarantee of return. 
Going with the flow means accepting insecurity as a natural by-product of your situation. With Moon-Neptune aspects in your solar re-turn chart, you need to function during times of uncertainty and confusion, and handle the insecurities that go with them by putting one foot in front of the other.
