Neptune Conjunct Ascendant
The conjunction of Neptune to the Ascendant shows that you are very sensitive and perhaps psychic. Your grip on the real world is loose; you need to grasp it more firmly. You are often away in a world of your own where you can escape the harshness of reality, which is especially painful to you. You are so physically sensitive to the injustices you observe in society that they can easily make you ill. Because your environment has such a powerful effect, you should try to make some contribution to relieve your anxieties about allowing these negative conditions to exist. You are particularly sensitive to the depressing social, economic, and inhuman conditions that plague much of the world's population. You are sympathetic toward the oppressed, understanding of the emotionally disturbed, and forgiving to those who seem guiltless in their transgressions against society. When people fail in their dealings with you, you tend to give them the benefit of the doubt and silently bear your disappointment. You easily become distraught over conditions you are powerless to do anything about, and your feelings of guilt and failure can make you withdraw into a world that is safe from responsibility. If the abrasive effect of direct encounter is severe enough, you might resort to artificial means of inducing relief from painful reality. But it is especially important to avoid drugs and alcohol, since they increase your vulnerability. You attract strange characters and are especially vulnerable to powerful individuals who can gain control over you. You should associate with persons who have their feet on the ground to compensate for your aimless wandering temperament. You need to be stabilized in reality, where you can do a great deal of good. There is a great need for your sympathetic understanding, and you don't have the right to turn down anyone who extends a hand for help.
The transit of Neptune Conjunct your Ascendant will alter your relationships and change the way you identify yourself with society, friends and your partner.

This is especially true with your partner if your relationship is based on idealism rather than on a realistic and practical foundation. Your ego energies will be lower and you may want to withdraw from the external world and reflect on your inner needs and desires. You may also feel like changing your appearance or the way you appear to others which is good as long as it is a true inner need and not something that's purely self centered or for gaining more attention to yourself. You have a strong need to make your mark in the world, but may be confused about your motives. If you?ve been solely concentrating on material success you may suddenly feel a lack of spiritual satisfaction in your work, and it will important to find more meaning and purpose in your personal efforts. You may feel lethargic or apathetic about pouring your soul into projects that seemed fulfilling in the past, and may even feel that you?ve lost your way. This inner confusion will color the way you appear to other people and they?ll indeed see you as being lost now. New projects that show up now seem too good to be true, and they often are, but you may feel compelled to explore these new directions in order to find out if they?re really worthwhile. Interestingly, there?s something valid about what you?re striving for now and you?ll find it, but usually not in the place you?re looking.
