Moon Conjunct Square Opposite Neptune: Special Sensitivity

Moon represents instincts and emotions.  Neptune refines everything it touches. When Moon and Neptune form an aspect, your emotional receptors become much more refined and sensitive compared to others.

Natal Moon Neptune aspect suggests “special sensitivity,” which often comes with vivid imagination and intuition.

Here we’ll explore the various potential of Moon Neptune aspect and how to channel its sensitivity in a constructive way:

Moon Neptune Aspect: Sensitivity and Imagination as Talent

Moon Neptune aspect often appears in horoscopes of poets, writers and musicians.   But you also find successful athletes, doctors and entrepreneurs with this aspect.  Successful Moon-Neptune people tend to share certain traits:

  • In their chosen subject, they grasp subtle nuances that others may miss.
  • In work, they use empathy, imagination and vision to accomplish goals.
  • Moon Neptune people are able to visualize the “right picture” in their mind, which helps them perform better than others in their chosen field (be it sports, medicine, or science, etc).

Well Known People with Natal Moon Neptune Aspect

Here are some well known people with natal Moon Neptune aspect:

  • Financial legend and philanthropist Warren Buffett (Moon square Neptune) is venerated for his refined understanding of business and investment.
  • David Packard (Moon conjunct Neptune), who famously founded Hewlett Packard in his garage, is known for creating a company culture that value imagination and creativity.
  • Other well known executives such as Jack Welch (Moon conjunct Neptune) and Lee Iacocca (Moon square Neptune) also share strong charisma and visionary leadership.
  • Aviator, inventor and environmental activist Charles Lindbergh had Moon opposite Neptune.
  • TV show host and animal rights activist Bob Barker has Moon opposite Neptune.
  • Composer Beethoven had Moon square Neptune.
  • Author Charles Dickens had Moon conjunct Neptune.  Emily Dickinson had Moon square Neptune.

 

Moon Neptune Aspect: Sensitivity as Vulnerability

Refined sensitivity can be either ecstatic or painful.  Having a natal Moon Neptune aspect usually means magnified feeling sensations.

Your feeling of love can be felt as a blissful, swooning infatuation.  On the other hand, the pain of abandonment can be devastating.  Happiness is experienced as pure joy, whereas depression can be crushing.

Unless grounded by other factors (earth, Saturn) in your horoscope, such sensitivity can easily turn into vulnerability.

 

Numbness and Escapism: Moon Neptune Trap

Growing up with special sensitivity isn’t easy, for others may label you oversensitive.  Exposure to harshness or abandonment can shock your psyche into numbness.

Being numb is a defense mechanism, and many Neptunians actually choose to be numb in order to avoid experiencing the intensity of their emotional pain.  Escapism, then, becomes the norm.

While escapism is a common reaction to the overwhelming sensitivity of Moon Neptune aspect, there is an alternative: To choose to be alive by feeling everything.

 

Sensitivity with Courage becomes Clear Vision

Fully feeling your emotions takes courage, especially if you have the sensitivity of a Moon Neptune aspect.  However, actually feeling the pain of disappointment, sadness or separation will be healing to your sensitivity.

By opening yourself to accept the painful emotions, you’re also opening to the joyful emotions within.  When you choose to feel instead of escape, numbness gradually fades, and the feeling of joy returns.

When you have the courage to feel, your sensitivity will allow you to see things more clearly, rather than less.  Your imagination turns into vision, aided by your intuitive understanding of all things.

 

Conclusion: Managing (and Embracing) Your Sensitivity

Rich, colorful emotions.  Moon Neptune aspect reflects a poet’s sensitivity and imagination.  When balanced by other parts of your psyche, it becomes a unique asset.

Managing the strong sensitivity isn’t always easy, especially if you’ve had a rough upbringing with unstable emotional foundation.  Like most Moon related tension in the horoscope, the answer lies in fully feeling the emotions rather than avoid them.
