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.
