Neptune is the first planet to be completely invisible to the unaided human eye on Earth, only discovered indirectly by solving the mystery of perturbations in the orbit of Uranus. Accordingly, Neptune represents the transcendence of visible limits, signifying mystery, spiritualism, dreams, fantasy, escapism, irrationality, illusions, delusions. It also has special significance for drugs and pharmaceuticals, mass entertainment, trends in mainstream music and movies. The condition of Neptune at the time of our birth shows what role we may play in our 14-year generation’s collective idealism in the topics of its sign and house placement.
Neptune in Gemini is in a mutable air sign, dissolving, synthesizing, idealizing and artificially reconstructing the significations of Mercury. Gemini is a sign associated with communication, duality, mutability. People from this 14-year span of time may stand out as curious and precocious as a group, and individuals with aspects from Neptune to more personal planets and points may stand out as their visionary chameleons and communicators.
People also take on characteristics of the time they come from. Accordingly, the 1887-1902 Neptune in Gemini period was when the principle of communication itself was synthesized. The telephone became mainstream, the radio was invented, the phonograph was first commercialized, bringing music into people’s homes for the first time. This is the beginning of the era of mass communication and mass media, bringing the first nationally syndicated magazines, enabling the distribution of standardized information and entertainment which also revolutionized advertising. This is also when amphetamines were first synthesized, along with its more evil twin, methamphetamines.
This is especially true if you were born with Gemini rising. Whether you experience the better or worse significations of this position depends on whether you were born during the day or at night, and the kind of aspects it makes with the other planets.
