Knowing the planets and their effects on your life is just as important as knowing your sign.

Neptune governs what inspires you and where you're easily deceived. It's about illusion, confusion, imagination, and creativity.
Neptune can be illusive and hard to tie down. It's the areas where you see what you thought was real isn't, and what you thought wasn't real is. It's like a blind spot where you don't see something until later, but you probably needed to see it from the very beginning.
Neptune governs addictions – drugs, alcohol, food, etc.
If Neptune was retrograde when you were born, you may have a tendency to escape from reality.
If Neptune was stationary when you were born, you may be quite artistic, but not very realistic.
