Neptune in House One
Neptune in the 1st House Overview:
With Neptune in the 1st house, there is a de-emphasis of the ego and a stronger emphasis on selflessness. People who have this placement are thus inclined to present themselves as more emotionally mature and wise. In the 1st house, Neptune fosters a desire to connect with the divine self and to make oneself feel worthy of receiving love. This placement signifies that the “mask” we wear is more mutable in nature.
The ego identity is less attached to anything material or superficial. Instead, the self image is formed around desire for redemption, meaningful connection and divine love. At the same time, Neptune in the 1st house can contribute to falseness, phoniness and deception. Individuals with this placement may be inclined to lie to themselves and struggle to maintain an objective view about themselves. They can be chameleon-like and often mimic characteristics from the people they encounter or admire. Here is a look at Neptune in the 1st house and what it means as both a transit and natal chart placement.
Neptune in the 1st House key Traits:
- self deception
The 1st House:
The 1st house is known as the “House of Self”. It encompasses the domain of our existence that concerns self image, appearances, confidence, style and our approach to new situations. The first house is ruled by the planet Mars and the sign of Aries. In a birth chart, it indicates how we tend to see and portray ourselves and how others tend to perceive us especially upon first impression. The sign that occupies this house is known as the rising sign or ascendant sign. The rising sign can often mask the traits of our sun sign when we find ourselves in new or unfamiliar situations. .
The Planet Neptune:
In astrology, the planet Neptune is regarded as the great Dissolver. The object of dissolution is the ego and the preoccupation with selfish pursuits. Neptune is the planet of mysticism and spiritual awakening. Its influence brings our attention to higher ideals and stimulates our capacity to dream and imagine possibilities. In contrast to Saturn, Neptune is detached from reality and can even be in denial of it. Accepting a bitter or inconvenient truth can be difficult for Neptune to stomach or come to grips with directly. Neptune provides self healing through escapism and faith in things unseen and only intuitively felt.
Neptune in the 1st House Natal:
Neptune in the 1st house of the birth chart is a placement that signifies a persona that is colored by an air of vagueness and sensitivity. People tend to find it hard to put their finger on them and gauge where they stand or what they’re thinking. They can appear aloof and also quirky. At the same time, they may show themselves to be very receptive and attentive, quietly absorbing impressions from the outside world. Their sense of style may be elegant and creative. Their style of presentation is not necessarily ostentatious but can be attention-grabbing nonetheless.
Additionally, Neptune in the 1st house can foster a sometimes delusional self image. They tend to be mirrors of their environment or otherwise adopt qualities and characteristics they think are cool or admirable. Neptune engenders a capacity for adapting and blending in with one’s surroundings. Being whatever they need to be at the moment and sometimes doing so in a deceptive manner. People may find them fascinating and alluring due to their detached and mysterious aura. Physically, they can appear morose or slightly melancholy. Others may feel compelled to cheer them up even though they might not be sad at all.
In other cases, Having Neptune in the 1st house can sometimes give off a vibe of deception and subterfuge due to a perception that they are too quiet or withholding something. Masquerading as something they are not or perpetuating a charade of some sort is not beyond them. In many cases, it may not be a conscious choice on their part, but rather something they do without thinking. This placement can foster a chameleon-like disposition that tends to shift with the wind. They generally approach new situations with an air of receptivity and sensitivity but may hold some reservations and typically take their time to feel people out.
Additionally, people with this placement can also appear selfless and non-egotistical. They show a greater concern and interest in the plight and needs of others than that of their own seemingly. They exhibit some degree of psychic sensitivity that allows them to read people but also absorb some of their emotional energy which can affect them physically in good and bad ways. In the 1st house, Neptune can bring on chaos and confusion surrounding one’s sense of self and identity until they can develop mature spiritual insight and relinquish the self serving emphasis of the ego.
Upon first impression, people with Neptune in the 1st house can come across as indecisive, vague and abstract. People who get to know them better may discover that they are not quite what they seem.

They can have a dreamy look in their eyes as though they are not quite present but off in another dimension.

Neptune in the 1st House Transit:
When Neptune transits the 1st house, it will stimulate a desire to transcend the ego and turn more attention to the world around us and the universe we are a part of. This transit can promote a greater self awareness within the context of others. Neptune urges the individual to be of service to others or suffer in isolation and from negative karma. At this time, there is a potential for experiencing feelings of disillusionment and disappointments about ourselves and our outlook on life. Neptune transiting the 1st house can foment self deception and a temporary loss of identity. We may lose a sense of who we are or adopt a disingenuous facade or persona that we have been led to believe is how we should act. At the same time, Neptune encourages us to be less self-absorbed and selfish. During this period, we can discover an increased sensitivity to others and a capacity for empathy that can earn us a deeper sense of love and connection with people.
