At this point, almost everyone knows what Mercury retrograde is. Mercury goes retrograde several times a year, and it's always something that people discuss — so much so that you might not realize that every planet goes retrograde at some point. Right now, we're inching closer to one that is probably going to have some affect on you. Neptune retrograde in the sign of Pisces begins on June 18, and doesn't end until November 24. Because Neptune is retrograde for so long (40 percent of the year!), we actually don't feel the effects as strongly as we would for, say, Mercury retrograde. But that doesn't mean we won't feel anything! Neptune retrograde comes with some interesting astrology predictions that you'll definitely want to pay attention to.
According to Tarot Astrology, "Neptune is a planet associated with idealism and imagination, but also with illusions and confusion." The planet is the ruler of the water sign of Pisces and the 12th astrological house, which is the house of subconscious and deeper emotions.
Neptune is typically described as "dreamy" planet that sometimes encourages us to live a life of denial. Neptune is a planet that will help you make excuses, live in a world of daydreams and illusion, and assist you in ignoring dark truths that you should actually be confronting head on. But as Daily Horoscope says, "when Neptune goes backward, it can feel like we've had a bucket of cold water splashed on our faces." Neptune retrograde will force you into the uncomfortable situations that you need to be in — and we could all use that sometimes. Check out more of what you can expect below:
