Neptune is considered to be a dreamy planet causing either confusion or mysticism. In contrast, the planet Neptune is an ice giant with unpredictable storms and strong winds that travel with frozen methane clouds across the planet. These winds can reach 1200 mph (2000 km/hr).

Neptune was discovered in 1846, during the Romantic Era. The Romantic Era was a sentimental, nostalgic time. Neptune is associated with illusions, the imagination and dreams. Neptune can be idealistic and is also associated with being spiritual.

Rulership

Neptune was assigned Domicile rulership of Pisces, replacing Jupiter for astrologers that use modern rulerships. Neptune has added a more nebulous flavor to Pisces.

Vibrational Astrology

In Vibrational Astrology, Neptune is what makes life magical for you. It’s the excitement and enthusiasm of a child. Neptune is about your dreams – whether those dreams are spiritual or not. When Neptune is part of a three planet pattern, it adds a sense of idealism and a feeling that things can be larger than life.
