Neptune in 6th house

Neptune in sixth house 3D model

The sixth house, like the sixth sign Virgo, represents the last personal stage in development, and is thus a critical one. The self-adjustment we undergo here determines our ability to relate to others on an equal footing (seventh house), and, by its success or failure, unites us with or separates us from others. This is the house of work and health or the lack of either, hygiene and nutrition, service, servants and servitude, daily routine, employment by others, and small animals and pets. Whereas fifth house activities are done for their own sake, sixth house work is done out of necessity or in support of other, more self-expressive activities. When our work becomes an end in itself, however, or we lose track of its purpose, it becomes pointless, and the result can be physical or psychological illness. The issue with planets in the sixth house is to remember what the purpose of our work is, where is it’s joy? Without this knowledge, life isn’t worth living.

You're extremely resourceful on the job, and love to help those in less fortunate situations. With Neptune in your sixth house your illnesses tend to have a strong emotional ingredient and may often be psychosomatic. In any event you're very open and suggestible to psychic and negative energy around you, particularly at work. This may cause difficulties in your job due to negativity there, or if you imagine too much is being asked of you. Natural healing methods such as massage, herbs, homeopathy, chiropractic and osteopathy are preferable to drugs or traditional medicine. Try to avoid drugs in almost all situations. You are very imaginative when it comes to your health, the food you eat, and how you take care of yourself.

If Neptune is within 10° of the descendant (seventh house cusp), then it is conjunct the descendant and much of the foregoing interpretation starts to become weaker. If Neptune is in the sixth house AND within 4° or 5° of the descendant, then it is said to be on the "dark side" of the seventh house, and its influence will be felt in the seventh as well as in the sixth house. The closer a sixth house Neptune is to the descendant, the more it will be interpreted as though it were in the seventh house; when less than 3° from the descendant, a sixth house Neptune expresses itself primarily— and eventually entirely—in the seventh house.

Astronomically speaking, the sixth house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky just below the western horizon (see above picture) occupied by planets in the two hours after they set.
