Moon/Neptune

Moon/Neptune combines the emotions, home, family and nurturance associated with the Moon archetype, with the spirituality, porousness, and enchantment associated with the Neptune archetype:

 

The Moon/Neptune combination creates a porous boundary (Neptune) to the emotions (Moon), thus allowing for the compassion and empathy seen in the following quotes of the 14th Dalai Lama, who was born with the Moon/Neptune combination in his chart. “You must not hate those who do wrong or harmful things; but with compassion, you must do what you can to stop them — for they are harming themselves, as well as those who suffer from their actions.” “When we are motivated by compassion and wisdom, the results of our actions benefit everyone, not just our individual selves or some immediate convenience.” “A truly compassionate attitude toward others does not change even if they behave negatively or hurt you.” “Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquility and happiness we all seek.”

both actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones, and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, were born when the Moon was aligned with Neptune.

As well as symbolizing emotions, the Moon also symbolizes women and the mother. Neptune is associated with idealization and selfless sacrifice. When a planet aligns with Neptune, Neptune lends to the symbolism of that planet a heavenly “shine.”

In the example of Williams and Ocasio-Cortez both women publicly idealize their mothers and praise the sacrifices that their mothers made to support them. And both women are perceived by the collective as “ideal” women in their own right.

When Olivia Munn, born with Moon and Neptune aligned, was a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Munn said of her budding friendship with Ellen, “We’re adorable—this friendship.” She reached over and took Ellen DeGeneres hand. About sharing their phone numbers she tells Ellen DeGeneres, “You’re gonna regret that. I’m gonna call you all the time. I’m like, did you have the same dream I had last night, Ellen?” Her warning that she will be calling all the time and her fantasy that Ellen DeGeneres shares the same dreams with her both demonstrate Neptune’s tendency to dissolve boundaries in the Moon’s emotional bonding. Describing patently Neptunian emotional bonding, she says, “We’re gonna go, like, scuba diving.”
