Neptune in astrology, science and myth

Neptune, the planet of idealism, mystery and imagination, is also the planet of illusion, self-delusion and dissolution. It is a subtle yet powerful disintegrator, source of hallucinations and the deceptive forces of the subconscious mind. Its principle is to dissolve barriers, being capable of raising us up to mystical experiences, or pulling us down into chaos and confusion.
