This book is nothing short of amazing. Beautifully and intelligently written, it manages to skillfully reveal the complex and nebulous meanings of Neptune through the use of myth, psychology, astrology, history, insight, and compassion. I would recommend it even to those not interested in astrology, as it has great insights to offer those who have ever experineced such common human experiences as a troubled relationship, a profound yearning, or a spiritual crisis.

Format: Hardcover
The very nature of Neptune in the horoscope is so vague, foggy and ethereal that it defies organized description. Instead of attempting this, although there is a "cookbook" section in the back of the book, Liz Greene uses words to allow you to *experience* Neptune. As with the other transpersonal planets, Pluto and Uranus, understanding how Neptune operates in individuals and relationships is crucial. This is not a good book for beginning astrologers, or for anyone who doesn't prefer or enjoy a psychological approach to the subject. For those who do and have some experience with the language of astrology, you'll love it!

Liz Greene has most certainly captured Neptune in this book! Whenever I have delineated charts, I have always said "Ah Neptune makes me nuts!". As there is not anything wrong with Neptune, it is just that is complicated, emotional and more of a "state" of existence or experience that is difficult to describe in "words". The words typically available in the mundane can frquently cause the native/recipient to misunderstand or misinterpret the actual experience vs. meaning (especially when they are going through a Neptunian experience!). I was very pleased to finally find an author that was able to capture this in writing. Liz clearly and respectfully points this out in her book. It was even more clear to me that she understood Neptune, due to the size of the book. Neptune needs much description! She understands! This book certainly assisted me in helping others. Thank you Liz

Format: Paperback
I had heard a lot of bad press about this book. So I hired it from the library instead of buying it. I was pleasantly surprised. The book is excellent, very deep and very insightful as far as the pitfalls of Neptune and spirituality are concerned. I particularly liked her description of the neptunian gurus and of what motivates both a person to become a guru or to follow one. As far as the writing, a reviewer said it is hard to read. I disagree. I think it is very well written, just you have to be willing to think. This is a deep book and it is not pop astrology, rather a deep reflection on Neptune and its links to spirituality, with a particualr focus on the pitfalls one can encounter during the journey of consciousness. A very well needed book that should be read by anybody with an interest in spirituality, consciousness and psychology (even if the non-astrologers would probably find the astrological framework impossible to understand).

Liz Greene is a strong, worthy voice of modern astrology. She is not, and has not been the most riveting of writers. I've waded through her other works and have been glad I had the determination to do so, but can't say I've ever enjoyed her books. Love the knowledge.... but wow. Dry. Boring. I got this book knowing that I would face the same struggle, but I love to hear and read all different interpretations and information to add to my own knowledge. So, I got it. I feel tortured. This book has her extensive knowledge, but it is wrapped up in a writing delivery that exceeds her baseline worse. Convuluted. Hard to grasp. (ironic that it is neptune she is writing about). I got through it, but I'll never go back again! I couldn't rate her less than a 3 star out of respect for the knowledge but...whew... think twice.

This work about Neptune is stunningly good and absolutely beautiful. Liz Greene does it again! All parts of the planet are discussed in depth; poetical, mythological, astrological and practical. (I suppose one can't describe Neptune any other way except "in depth").
I highly recommend this to you!

While Liz Greene has a smooth writing style, it is unfortunate that it has not been put to more constructive use. She identifies some of the key characteristics of Neptune, but views them in an almost entirely negative light. What is worse, her descriptions of "Neptunian" people and problems are done in a condescending and belittling manner. Although she dismisses much religion and spirituality as Neptunian phenomena in a negative sense, her book offers no viable alternatives. There are few constructive suggestions given in this book for the supposed weaknesses of those with hard aspects to Neptune in their charts. Reading this book might lead some "Neptunian" people to think of themselves as being problematic and of little use to society, and could do more harm than good in many cases.

When does Liz Greene have time to do all she does!! The amount of information packed into this tome is phenomenal. The writing of this book would be a lifetime achievement for any author, but this book is just another of many books. She just keeps on getting better. What a wonderful legacy Liz could leave behind if she could do this with each of the planets!! (Hint. Hint.) This may be the most in-depth astrology book published on any one planet. The last few chapters on interpretations of Neptune in the houses, Neptune in aspects, and Neptune in synastry is worth the price of the book alone.
