1st house
Neptune's influence often makes one weak, unreliable, prone to drug/alcohol abuse, and extreme cases, there can be mental illness or other aberrations. This is amplified especially if Neptune is on a bad degree. Those with this placement are ultra sensitive, highly impressionable, and gullible, with a tendency to drift aimlessly through life.

2nd house
Those with this placement are often impractical concerning money. Money is often spent on music, theatre and/or the arts, and on spiritual pursuits. These people can be easily swindled. There can be evasiveness regarding finances. Sometimes they depend on others for financial support or vice versa. There is a strong potential for bankruptcy and/or the erosion of one's assets. In some cases, one with Neptune in the second house may consider money and finances to be unimportant as with those who take a vow of poverty in certain "religious" programs.

3rd house
There are often step-brothers and/or sisters. These people may have one or more different aliases or nicknames. This placement often gives weak mindedness, but also psychic ability, along with a vivid imagination and a gift for visualization. Like those with Uranus in this third house, people with Neptune here often write and/or communicate about astrology, and other spiritual disciplines. In some cases, there can be dyslexia, learning disabilities or even mental illness.

Those with this placement can be natural adepts at black magick.

9th house

They should stay away from negative people and situations. They may work in institutions where they care for the underprivileged and/or those in need. There is usually a very strong interest in the mind, the psyche and in spirituality.
