Neptune is a so-called transpersonal planet. It is considered as such because of its global influence on people through social events and changes induced by its influence while transiting through the signs of Zodiac.

Neptune inspires changes and transformations related to the affairs ruled by the sign it transits through as well as Neptune ruled affairs.
