An essay on Neptune, explaining in depth how the planet functions at social, physical and psychological levels.

“With a powerful Neptune one may never be ‘normal’ whatever that is - but one is likely to
be extremely interesting and alive.“ Liz Greene

The Planet Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun. It is also known as the Blue Giant.

Neptune is the fourth and outermost of the gas giant planets and also has rings. In Greek

mythology Neptune was the god of the Sea, shown by the trident which is used as its glyph.

From an Astrological perspective, Neptune rules the 12th House, and is the co-ruler of Pisces,

Neptune in Capricorn, 1984 - 1998 manifested fantasies about wealth, fame and practical
idealism. The attempt to control the use of illegal drugs while pharmaceutical drug use
increased, e.g. Valium.

Neptune’s like the other slow moving planets, guiding each generation toward its collective
spiritual destiny. Because of this, it’s often easier to see how it influenced a particular period in
retrospect.

Physical

In the Physical world, Neptune seems to be most closely associated with drugs, prisons, hospitals,

and music. Some astrologers believe that Neptune is the planet of creative imagination, but this

does not mean that all artists, writers and musicians have a strong Neptune. It may simply mean

they are a dreamer with the ability to "escape." It can embody a person as a martyr or could

appear as a person who’s vocation is to care for others, whether this is a relative, in a hospital or



care location. So on one side, Neptune can be seen as a planet of mercy and compassion.

However more negative manifestations of Neptune can include deception, trickery, deceit and

guilt. Individuals can be vulnerable to other influences, hence it’s association with addiction,

intoxication and living in a fantasy world instead of the real world. It signifies a dissolving of

boundaries and being out of control. It can also signify intolerance to drugs. Neptune’s link to drug

and pharmacological products stems from Neptune's discovery, which coincided with advancement

in the world of pharmaceuticals.

    The International Astronomical Union recently decided on a definition of the word "planet". The IAU members gathered at the 2006 General Assembly agreed that a "planet" is defined as a celestial body that (a) is in orbit around the Sun, (b) has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly round) shape, and (c) has cleared the neighborhood around its orbit. Although Pluto orbits the Sun and its round, it’s not a planet. And that’s because Pluto hasn’t cleared out its orbit of material. This was the reason that the Inter

    My Last Duchess

    1518 words - 7 pages

    Robert Browning's poem "My Last Duchess" is a splendid example of the irony that a poet can achieve within the format of the dramatic monologue, a poetic form in which there is only one speaker. When there is only one speaker, we necessarily have to weigh carefully what he or she is telling us, and we often have to "read between the lines" in keeping an objective perspective on the story or incidents that the speaker describes to us. We can gather from this poem's setting, "Ferrara," a town in Italy, as well as from the speaker's reference to his "last Duchess," that th

    Cosign Your Love The Variations Of Emotion In Ovid S Metamorphoses

    1503 words - 7 pages

    Love, of many kinds, runs abound in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, though the end results are not always pleasant for those involved. The dictionary definition of love does not always refer to the emotion in a romantic or affectionate manner. Love can refer to a partner, a lover, a friend or a family member. Yet, it can also mean a strong need for something, as if love is one’s lifeline – or in some cases, cause of death. Like most stories in Metamorphoses, every story in Book III and Book IV always somehow wind back to the king of gods, Jupiter, whether it is through family connections or his own

    In Shakespeare’s lifetime he wrote many plays. Many of them were critically acclaimed and others cast aside. The crowd always wanted to be more thoroughly entertained and Shakespeare always tried to keep up with the people’s needs. In 1605, Shakespeare was being hounded for another work of genius. Hamlet and King Lear had just been completed and the people wanted him to write more. He didn’t know what to write and like many playwrights, he did research. He found two stories from Holinshed’s Chronicles of England, Scotland and Ireland. Shakespeare had already taken ideas from Holinshed for his
